About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Vaulted Ceilings, Sleeps 3, Fully Equipped Kitchen

Wasabi Cottage is ideal for a couple but will easily accommodate three. It is airy and light with views of Mount Baker, Saratoga Passage, and the rooftops of Langley. We regularly receive raves for our attention to detail, easy-on-the-eyes decor and that squeaky-clean feeling.

And yes, we are fully equipped. You'll find a modern kitchen with, besides many obvious utensils and pans, a convection oven/microwave, gas cook-top, and dishwasher. But we don't forget to offer amenities like a coffee grinder, french press, (organic Fair Trade coffee beans and half-and-half included), Brita water filter, and sparkling water. There is a private bedroom (very comfy queen size bed) with its adjoining bathroom (shower and tub), ceiling far-infrared radiant heater and, for your convenience, a washer/dryer. Of course there is also a 24-7 Wi-Fi signal.

If the evening or morning is cool, enjoy warming yourselves in front of the propane pot belly stove in the living room. Or stand and gaze through French doors at a sunrise over the Cascade mountains. In the open but very private loft with its lovely window view of Puget Sound, Camano Island and Mount Baker, find a comfortable twin bed, relaxing chair and writing desk. Or, pick your place on the wraparound deck, sip your first freshly brewed 'cuppa' and enjoy the view of town roofs fading to a water/mountain view. If it's raining, relax on the deck with your day's end glass of wine without worry: the deck has an extensive covered portion that keeps your table and chairs bone dry.

About Flay Wahl

We are Mark and Flay Wahl and we've lived on Whidbey Island for 27 years in the same home where we raised our youngest daughter who freely “occupied” the village with her “tribe” of friends. (She is presently a Seattle resident.) We are now enjoying the island with our son, daughter-in-law and three lovely grand-daughters.

Over the years, we have come to know and love the Whidbey community and the charm of our Langley village. We know many families, unique island dwellers, and secret magical spots on Whidbey. Mark is a math educational consultant and Flay has retired from a practice of massage therapy and teaching Process Painting. She has devoted her visual-spatial talents and energies to creating the fine and comfortable feel of this cottage. Our nearby yard is a visual treat as well thanks to Flay's green thumb and love of gardening.

Flay Wahl purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Flay Wahl chose Whidbey Island

Our life on Whidbey has brought us into contact with many happy visitors who appreciate the island’s unique community and natural settings. We have wanted for years to build a cottage that can be used by friends, relatives and guests as they enjoy “our” island. Finally, in 2012, we put our creative energies and work toward this with the guidance and sweat of a talented and able contractor-friend. Flay has a knack for making a place homey and for helping people to feel at home and this has found expression through our wonderful cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has the unique quality of accessing a lively small village with its community life and amenities, all within a 2- 5 minute walk, while at the same time being on a quiet, elevated street with a view of mountains, water and the rooftops of that village. It is a brand new cottage designed by the owners with much care to provide guests with a feeling of restful ease and comfort.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, one block from the Langley "downtown" core. The place is quaint, clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. We would absolutely stay here again on our next visit to Langley.

Lovely, Comfortable, & Very Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenaged daughter and I stayed at Wasabi Cottage November 19 through 22, and were all three very pleased with it. The cottage itself is smartly designed (and just darling), and Flay and Mark have done a very good job of anticipating a visitor's needs. Our daughter and I had the upstairs loft room, and loved the beautiful view from up there. The easy access to Langley (a short walk down the alley) was great. Details we appreciated included the good Mukilteo Coffee Roasters coffee and half-and-half, the clear directions about how to use everything in the cottage, the washer and dryer (so convenient), and the warm wool throws in the living area. We also liked the bunnies in the grass across the alley. :) We hope to stay at Wasabi Cottage again, and will tell our friends. Just delightful.

My recent stay at the Wasabi Cottage was absolute perfection! Flay Wahl is the consummate hostess - available to assist when needed but unobtrusive. Her beautifully designed cottage was extremely well thought out and offers a superior degree of coziness and comfort. Peek-a-boo views from the wrap around deck were lovely from a hillside location just above the village of Langley. A two block walk takes you into the village where you can enjoy a variety of restaurants and shops. Flay can provide restaurant recommendations should you be new to the area.

The cottage is equipped with everything you could want or need should you decide to nest for a while and do your own cooking. Just a lovely cottage. I look forward to returning for another visit.

Thanks to Flay and Mark for sharing this wonderful cottage!
