Overview

About the property

Two bedrooms, large living area, huge yard, and awesome views.

This is a nicely modernized two bedroom house with all the conveniences to feel a home. There is a wonderful view of the shipping lanes and the Olympic mountains. It is a great place to just sit and lookout at the scenery. You can count on seeing eagles.

About Bev and Earl Wenthin

We are a family with two boys and a girl. I met my wife on Whidbey and our two boys where born in the house --it was the plan!

Bev and Earl Wenthin purchased this house in 1995

Why Bev and Earl Wenthin chose Whidbey Island

This is a great place to relax and enjoy the Puget Sound region. There are many nice walks in the nearby parks --and the beach of course. The house is on a large property so you will have plenty of space to play in the backyard.

What makes this house unique

Whidbey Island is the closest far away place for the Seattle residents. There a unique feeling one gets once the ferry lands on the island. At Bush Point Retreat you get outstanding views, easy access to the beach, and plenty of space for privacy.

I could never get tired of that gorgeous view of the sound!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and are two young children stayed at this home for five days, four nights. We loved the big yard for our toddler to run around in and even found a fort in the back yard and a baseball and bat to play with. We spend most of our days either outdoors enjoying the beautiful yard (Lots of trees, gorgeous landscaping, fresh lavender), or sitting on the deck facing the sound or on the beach. The location has a down-to-earth feel to it, with many local fishermen filling up the beaches. You can literally walk down to the beach from this location. The house itself was perfect for a family vacation. The kitchen was fully stocked with an assortment of pans, dishes, spices, etc. Everything was very clean and the house was nicely decorated and had lots of wonderful plants. The best part of staying there was the view. It was breathtaking. It made even washing dishes an enjoyable task!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this rental online. We loved it from the moment we walked through the door! The property manager, Bev, was so helpful. She checked us in quickly upon our arrival. The house is extremely neat and well cared for. The views are breathtaking! We traveled around the island the next day to sightsee. When we returned to the rental, we soon realized that we were already in the prettiest part of Whidbey Island...all we had to do was gaze out of the window or step out onto the deck of this beautiful home. We didn't need to travel any further to find the most beautiful views on this island. We loved walking along the beach which was within walking distance from the house. We didn't get a chance to visit any local eateries...this kitchen was so well equipped we enjoyed cooking our own meals and staring out at the bay waiting for the next ship to come by! I will definitely come here again. We were allowed to bring our small dog as well. It really felt like a home away from home. I have to admit, I was a little sad to leave his place!

AMAZING! RELAXING! JUST RIGHT!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly, EXACTLY, what we needed: a restful, beautiful location to rejuvenate our souls. Even though most of the weekend was cloudy with a few sprinkles, it did not detract from our enjoyment of this lovely home with fabulous views and amenities. I used the secluded hot tub more than I ever have used one before, and that combined, with reading, napping, eating delicious seafood, and wandering art galleries was perfect. Repeat, redo over and over; and then to end with a lovely sunny day and walk along the beach at low tide was a perfect ending to a much needed restful weekend. We will definitely return.

Quiet Whidbey retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing retreat. The house is wonderfully situated to take advantage of the beautiful views and sunsets. The kids and pup enjoyed the huge backyard, and we all loved relaxing and dining on the spacious deck. Thanks- we'll be back!

with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredibly clean, bright, cheerful, and had gorgeous views of the Sound throughout. The property managers wee incredibly helpful and went out of their way to help make our stay amazing, even greeting us upon arrival and coming down to the house when we asked for access to the washer and drier. There are nearby wineries, state parks, off-leash dog parks on the beach, and the beach is very close. It is a little bit away from Langley and Coupeville, but that is exactly why we wanted to come here - to get away from it all, and the best part is they are still accessible in under 15-20 minutes. There is a great grocery store nearby and a coffee shop, gas station, etc. so you don't sacrifice convenience. Dog owners, the fenced in property was perfect for our three large dogs, and we could keep an eye on the easily from inside the house or on the gorgeous deck. Loved it!

Bush Point Retreat Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two-year-old lab enjoyed three nights in this bright, clean, beautifully furnished home with an huge fenced yard in the back, which included an hot tub (with a view) a fire pit, wide variety of trees, two-seater swing...deck and even more of a view. The whole west-facing part of the home are windows which also face a view of the Admiralty Inlet and Olympic Mountain Range. You can not escape the view in the home. We spent every day walking on the private beach hunting for sea glass. Although it was hard to leave, we did venture out for dinner at Captain Whidbey Inn, which was very nice. We were always eager to return to this lovely sanctuary. It was a joy to prepare meals in the kitchen. I found everything I needed, in addition to having this amazing view. I would recommend this rental to all my friends and family.
