About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Close To Beach, Park, Downtown (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Oak Harbor on beautiful Whidbey Island, Washington. Easily accessible by the famous Deception Pass Bridge from the north or from the south by the Clinton-Mukilteo ferry. Oak Harbor is located two hours from Vancouver, BC or Seattle, WA. An amazing four season getaway in the heart of the scenic Puget Sound, a place of breathtaking beauty freeing you from the hustle and bustle of urban life, enjoy dreamy days and ocean breezes. Let the world keep going while you take some time away to just breath the sea air and enjoy.

Whidbey Island is a recreational paradise offering many activities such as biking, hiking, paddling, fishing, crabbing and sailing to name just a few. Adventure awaits yet the relaxation possibilities are endless, daydream while watching the clouds go by. The city of Oak Harbor offers easy access to Deception Pass State Park, Coupeville, Penn Cove, Greenbank, Langley, the Keystone ferry to Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula, Fort Ebey, Fort Casey, miles and miles of beaches, hiking trails, lavender farms and historic sites, golfing, equestrian pursuits and NAS Whidbey Island.

Beeksma House is ideally located to take advantage of the Oak Harbor waterfront and downtown charm. A one minute stroll brings youto Windjammer Park, locally known as City Beach, Oak Harbor's premier community park. City Beach offers quiet, calm waters and picturesque views of the harbor. Landmarked by a large windmill, an ode to the Dutch heritage of many of Oak Harbor's founding citizens, the park has much to offer including numerous playgrounds, basketball courts, baseball fields, swimming lagoon, wading pools, kayak park, picnic areas and lots of grassy space to relax and play. It is the perfect place for paddling, beach combing for shells and driftwood, or strolling along the lengthy promenade. The park is host to major events on Whidbey, including the Oak Harbor Regatta, Whidbey Marathon, Jazz Festival and Oak Harbor's well known 4th of July celebrations.

Just outside the front door of Beeksma House is the Freund Marsh waterfront trail. Enjoy a walk, jog or bike ride along the restored wetland area which includes a pond, native plants and an abundance of wildlife. The quaint shops of Pioneer Way and the amenities of downtown Oak Harbor are a short stroll from the house, making your stay an easy one as everything is at your doorstep. A fantastic selection of restaurants and family centered entertainment await you. Or just spend a cozy night in, snuggled up by the fire...the perfect place to recharge and refresh.

Beeksma House is a spacious and relaxing retreat...perfect for a cozy vacation catching up on your reading or the perfect jumping off spot to explore all Whidbey has to offer. The house is lovingly and thoughtfully decorated with many original artworks and custom furniture by the owners, Jen and Greg. The house is cozy yet modern and so comfortable. The spacious master suite with king sized bed, sitting area and ensuite is so relaxing. Two more bedrooms enjoy peek-a-boo harbor views, one with two bunks to sleep four, and the other with a plush and comfortable queen sized bed. All are well appointed and the perfect place to lay your head after a day of exploring all that the island has to offer.

Beeksma House also features two living areas, both with fireplaces, one with a 55 inch flat screen Smart TV. Bring your favorite movies or use your online Netflix or Hulu account for easy viewing of your favorite shows. The well appointed kitchen allows for home cooked meals that you can enjoy in the gorgeous dining room with a wonderful large harvest table, perfect for family meals. The backyard is fenced for privacy and the patio is very generous...many spots to relax yet also come together. A fully equipped house that also provides sanitized beds and pillows with onsite laundry and professional cleaning after each guest assures a top quality home for your next vacation getaway.

We look forward to having you as our guest --- relax, explore, enjoy!

About Jennifer Lee

We are a family of four from South Surrey, British Columbia. We are very active and enjoy land and water recreation and fell in love with beautiful Whidbey Island as it offers everything we love to do and more! We are very happy and fortunate to have found our place in Oak Harbor, as it provides us a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and some wonderful quality family time. A great place to relax and recharge. We look forward to many happy times here in Whidbey with family and friends, and are glad to be able to share it with you and your families!

Jennifer Lee purchased this house in 2012

Why Jennifer Lee chose Whidbey Island

Upon visiting Whidbey Island for the first time, we immediately fell in love with this island's natural beauty and small town charm. Beeksma House offered us a place where we can just sit back and relax, where the kids can be kids...having the freedom to walk to the beach or park or to grab an ice cream treat. Located in a quiet neighborhood, at the end of a quiet street, you feel nice and cozy tucked away from the 'big' city, but still very close to amenities. Its close proximity to the water is very important to us as we enjoy going out for a paddle, exploring the nearby water ways. Our location is fantastic as it offers easy access to Deception Pass State Park, Coupeville, Penn Cove, Greenbank, Langley, the Keystone ferry to Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula, Fort Ebey, Fort Casey, miles and miles of beaches, hiking trails, lavender farms and historic sites, golfing, equestrian pursuits and NAS Whidbey Island. Easily accessible by Deception Pass Bridge from the north and the Mukilteo-Clinton ferry from the south, an easy two hour drive from Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA.

What makes this house unique

Everything you would want to do is so close! No need for a car for all the fun stuff we like to do. Walk to the beach, park, downtown. Groceries, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shops, shopping...everything is close by. Many town and island events mostly happen at City Beach. No need to drive and find parking. Just walk out the front door and you're there! Though it may sound like Beeksma House is right in the middle of the action, its peaceful neighborhood is tucked away, providing privacy for some quiet relaxation. A nearby nature trail is home to many wildlife. Bunnies, deer, pheasants, eagles, a variety of wild birds, and of course the sea gulls, can be seen all around.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 -- three generations -- loved the Beeksma House. It was only 10 minutes from the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, where we had a number of events, and close to several other destinations. The house itself was extremely clean, updated, had plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms, and was very close to lots of options for coffee and takeout. Best of all, the Owner was extremely helpful, responsive, professional and accommodating. The house is a short drive to La Conner and Coupeville, and about 40 minutes from Anacortes. We will be back to the area in 18 months for another Change of Command and look forward to renting again.

Great property walking distance to City Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great Property! We enjoyed our stay. The location is close to the beach, shopping is near by, restaurants etc. The green egg take a bit to understand but only because I had not used one before but once we got it going it worked like a charm. Place was very clean and maintained when we arrived. Lots of amenities for the kids, ping pong, badminton, canoe etc. No cable but Netflix which was fine for us. Only input I would provide is we needed a few more blankets. Jennifer was easy to work with. We would rent again!

Thanks

Peter

It a beautiful and clean home!

  • 5 of 5

What a cutely decorated home. We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is a 5 min drive to Safeway and just a short walk to the beach. The house was super clean and hotel worthy. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Very nice. Almost gave 5 stars but that's perfection, and hard to achieve.

  • 4 of 5

AC would have been nice, although usually unnecessary on Whidbey island. It was unusually warm during our stay. This is a very nice property. We would utilize this property again.

great place for a group to spend a few days!

  • 5 of 5

A great size for our group (6 adults, 2 kids) and nice features for our purpose (talking and spending time together.) Plenty clean and well equipped. The kids enjoyed the ping-pong and the big screen. Everyone liked the couple minute walk to the park and the ocean. Safeway and Walmart are very close. We needed our own shampoo but the kitchen was well equipped and the decor pleasant and homey. We'd do it all again!

wonderful retreat on Whidbey Island

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay at the Beeksma House. We wish we had stayed longer. Whidbey Island has a lot that would interest families of different ages and different interests. We visited a lighthouse, the Lavender Wind Farm, walked around Fort Casey, swam at Double Bluff Beach, hiked at Deception Pass where we could have stayed all day, crossed the Deception Pass Bridge, had amazing ice cream at Kapaws Iskreme, happily devoured marionberry cream cheese pastries at the Knead & Feed, had pingpong competitions at night, took turns canoeing out into the sound, grilled shrimp kabobs and mussels on the Big Green Egg grill, and even took the time to return to Seattle one evening to see the city lights from the Space Needle as the sun was setting (beautiful cap to our vacation in Washington). There were books in the house that show 100 fun places to go on Whidbey Island - it looks like it is a fun island to visit each season of the year. Maybe someday we will be able to return to Washington during a different season and we would definitely stay at the Beeksma House again. It felt like home away from home! Thank you for opening your lovely home to families visiting the Seattle area.
