About the property

1 BR/1 Bath, Sleeps 4, Children Welcome

Stone steps lead to this new lower level apartment, set in a perennial garden on Langley's waterfront bluff. It offers simplicity and comfort, serenity and warmth.

Enter through the cheerful kitchen, fully equipped with the essentials for cooking. The kitchen opens into a sunny large room that serves as both living and dining space. A wireless TV, books, puzzles, and games are there to entertain. The sofa/futon folds down easily to sleep another two people.

Enjoy peek-a-boo water view in the summer when the garden is bursting. The remainder of the year a full water view entertains.

Langley is a great place of departure for exploring other parts of Whidbey Island such as Coupeville, Deception Pass, Ebey's Prairie, the Greenbank Farm, and the beaches at Double Bluff and Maxwellton. Catch a whale watching tour, rent a kayak or moped, or make a day trip to the San Juan Islands. There is no shortage of things to do.

But you can also just spend your day unwinding, enjoying the village or sitting in the sun in your own private garden.

About Ursula Roosen-Runge

After treasuring our private spot on the water in the heart of Langley for twenty years, my architect-husband and I decided to 'downsize' in place. We've converted the lower level of our waterfront home to an apartment for people wanting to enjoy Langley and its surroundings as we do. My husband has retired to a life of writing and reflection and I continue to work as a consultant to non-profits and public agencies in the Northwest.

Ursula Roosen-Runge purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Ursula Roosen-Runge chose Whidbey Island

Twenty years ago we moved from Seattle to Whidbey to find a deeper sense of community. We found a village that welcomes all and pulls people in to its music, art, food, and just plain silliness whether they are here for the day or are 'old-timers.'

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Island Haven for the 2nd time and loved it. The apartment has everything you need for just tucking yourself away and enjoying the quiet. And, although it's secluded and quiet, it's located right in town if you decide you want to take a short walk downtown to visit the shops and restaurants. Ursula is a sweetie; very responsive to e-mails, her directions make the place easy to find, and you don't need to bring anything (coffee, coffee pot, tea -- it's all there). Highly recommended.

Beautiful Property & Welcoming Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This property is lovely. We had a beautiful garden, a view of the water, and it was just a block or two walk to the main town of Langley! The interior was well-kept and tidy. Ursula and her husband were very welcoming hosts. They even invited us into their home to help fine taxi companies when we were headed out. Highly recommend this spot!

If you want to visit Whidbey and be in the heart of Langley, this garden apartment is perfect. Surrounded by a beautiful garden and peekaboo views of the water, it's a charming and peaceful home away from home. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place. Only a couple blocks from the cute downtown Langley with good restaurants and fun shops. The apartment is roomy and comfortable. The garden is peaceful and beautiful with birds and butterflies and bees and hummingbirds! We loved this place and would definitely recommend.

Perfect home away in Langley, super close to town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. #1 reason for us was how close it is to town. It's only couple blocks and easy walk downhill. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. It was safe for our 2 kids and Ursula even provided couple toys and books for them. She was a great host and answered all our questions promptly. We'll definitely come back. Thank you for having us.

Perfect Langley Guest House

  • 5 of 5

This guest house is comfortable and convenient (everything we needed and spotlessly clean), lovely (views, garden, interior decor), and private. Ursula is the perfect host, with anything we might need, just a phone call away. The location was good, we had a very short walk to downtown Langley. This is a beautiful place to visit with good restaurants, artists, lots of shops and an active community. We hope to return soon.
