About the property

Sleeps up to 6 adults; 8 people if you have children in the group

Please be our guest at Artisan Beach Home on Sunlight Beach. We have decided to share our beautiful beach getaway as a vacation rental for others to enjoy. The home has elegant touches throughout and best of all, when you step out the back door you are right on the beach! Enjoy life at the beach, the beauty of the water, wildlife and boats and ships as they pass by.

Located right on Sunlight Beach on Useless Bay, just about everything on the south end is within a 10 minute drive. With two bedrooms on the 2nd or main floor, and one down on the ground level, we can accommodate up to 6 adults or 8 total if you have children in your party. Two bathrooms up, and one down. Open space living/dining/kitchen space with large view windows to enjoy the view and one another. A gas grill on the deck, a gourmet kitchen, and great eating out options, will mean you are sure to enjoy every meal here!

Close proximity to Seattle, Port Townsend, Anacortes, and the San Juan Islands should you want to take a day trip somewhere. Deception Pass, the most visited State park in all of Washington, is at the north end of the island, just over a 1 hour drive. Great shopping, parks, hikes, and local attractions, may keep you right here on the south end; even if you come for a week or two!

This is a high end, quality custom built home, with hardwood and slate floors, beautiful wood cabinetry and lovely art and decor throughout!

Perfect island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our extended family (from grandparents to grandkids). There's enough space so you don't feel like you're on top of each other the whole time and the yard and beachfront access is AMAZING! We have a toddler and an infant and found the house perfect for both. This is definitely a Whidbey Island gem!

Wonderful combination of fine house and fine beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of those rare combinations - a beautiful house on a beautiful beach. Every amenity was provided in the house itself, one of the most well equipped kitchens we have ever been in, period. The rooms were all comfortable and graciously appointed. The art work was outstanding and added so much to our enjoyment of the house's spaces. The beach itself was a treasure. We were there with our own married children and our grand-children, who are 3 and 5, and they loved the ability at low tide to run out for miles, while at high tide the water was shallow enough for wading, swimming and safe boating. The fire-pit provided great eventing Smores conventions, and we also enjoyed the deck for kicking back, and the small lawn for kicking around a ball and water pistol fighting. Thank you for sharing such a gem of a vacation home. This home gets you to relax, no doubt about it.

Loved the Artisan Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at the Artisan Beach House. The house was very well appointed with a great kitchen, ideal separation of bedrooms for kids and adults, plus amazing location right on the beach. Really an ideal spot for a family vacation. Also very convenient to the Clinton ferry for day guests.
