This beach house is located within the Ebey's Reserve National Reserve Park area and is situated on the west side of Whidbey Island on its own private beach. The home is in the middle of the Keystone Spit in a national park adjacent to Fort Casey State Park, yet the Beach House is just four miles from the historic town of Coupeville, a Red Apple grocery store and Whidbey General Hospital. The home is surrounded on three sides by public property and only has three neighbors to the west. This home is not stacked and packed into a large development of beach houses but instead is part of a small in-holding within and between State and National park areas. You will really enjoy the privacy.
You can relax in 2800 + square feet of comfort in this fully equipped home. The large private fenced backyard goes almost all the way to the high tide line of Puget Sound. Since several people have asked, our property is on the water and it is private waterfront. There is over 2 miles of State owned beach to the east of us, but it is pretty quiet and rarely used. An adjustable forced air heating system will keep you warm in the winter and the AC will keep you cool in the summer.
Enjoy wonderful water, mountain, and shipping views from almost every room in the house. A huge deck with 42 inch 1/4 inch thick safety glass walls is perfect for dinner and drinks. We are immediately adjacent to almost two miles of publicly owned 'Ebey's Reserve' beach so our location feels very private. Puget Sound is due south and the Lake Crockett bird refuge is due north across the street, so there is a lot of water views in almost all directions. There are so many different views of the site that you should request a link to more photos so you can get a better idea.
One of our favorite views is to the west right before sunset of the Colonel's house in old Fort Casey.
The Beach House is only a five minute (flat) walk to the Keystone Ferry with service to Port Townsend! The ferry leaves from very close by and lands right in the heart of the waterfront of the beautiful town of Port Townsend, so no car is needed to enjoy the fine restaurants, shopping, and other amenities available there.
Outdoor activities abound here with fantastic salmon fishing and crabbing, wonderful kayaking, para-sailing and world class diving from our backyard. The public boat launch is next to the ferry terminal and is less than one minute by car. The home is bounded by Ebey's Reserve Park to the east, Puget Sound on the south, and Crockett Lake on the north across Highway 20. Whidbey Island is the home of Naval Air Station Oak Harbor. The aircraft, ships, subs, and parachutists can appear at anytime.
This smoke-free home is located in the middle of the main waterfowl flyway of Whidbey Island. For you runners, the distance around the lake is 5.6 miles. An excellent training area for both running and biking. A wise choice for the family that wishes to be close to the cities, but maintain their privacy.
This home is 90 minutes from Seattle (including Ferry) and 75 minutes from Bellingham by car. Air Travel can be arranged with Kenmore Air 866 435 9524.
The Beach House is equipped for 8 persons in four separate and quiet bedrooms with one bedroom being kid friendly in 'boat' beds along. There is also one additional semi private sleeping area not including the great room with a King sized Murphy bed. One of the ground floor rooms with a king bed also has a large window seat that can also be utilized as a sleeping area.
The home has DSL internet and a wireless router for easy use by guests. DishTV service is provided on at least 2 TV's along with Netflix. We also have a gym quality LifeFitness 9500 Elliptical training machine.
