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 Langley
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.

Pretty, Peaceful, and Perfect!
The moment I walked into Flay and Mark's beautiful cottage, I relaxed. Flay and Mark are just lovely people who have thought of everything to make your stay stress free. I loved walking up the stairs to the loft in the morning to just sit with a cup of tea and stare at the beautiful view out the windows of the town and Puget Sound. And I loved curling up with a blanket on the window seat in the living room just made for uninterrupted reading. Everything is first rate inside, and the convenience of walking into the charming town of Langley is a huge extra bonus. There is so much to enjoy on Whidbey Island - don't miss the Bluff Trail hike at Ebey's Landing, the beautiful flowers and miles of trails at MeerKerk Gardens, the Whidbey pies at Green Bank Farm, the Penn Cove Mussels and homemade breads at OysterCatcher, Cheese from Glendale Shepherd Farm, and Farm to table dinners at Orchard Kitchen. But most of all, just enjoy the serenity at Wasabi Cottage! Karen Formost San Diego
Flay nd Mark are warm, kind and generous. Wasabi Cottage is perfectly appointed, extremely nice touches, beautiful, sparkling clean and cozy. There is a lovely fireplace, a nice view of the Sound from the back porch and only a 5-minute walk to downtown Langley. We fell in love with this sweet place. Will definitely be back.
What a great little place this is!! Awesome location, very clean, nicely decorated & comfortable beds! The home is cozy and cute, and was the perfect spot for our long weekend retreat to Langley to visit with family and friends. The home is well equipped with all the necessary amenities for a pleasant stay. We hope to visit again soon!! Thank you :)
Cozy, comfortable, and quiet
I stayed at the Wasabi Cottage for a weekend event in Langley. After the crowds and activities, it is situated perfectly to relax - it is a five minute walk from downtown in a quiet corner, away from the bustle.
The cottage is just the right size for two or three people. The main living area almost compels you to snuggle in and read a book. The kitchen has all the basic tools to prepare your coffee in the morning and a meal at night. If you forgot to bring food, the Star grocery store is a short walk away and has everything else you might need.
If you're in Langley for an event, or even if you just want a relaxing weekend away from a big city, the Wasabi Cottage is a great place to make a quiet home-away-from-home.
A perfect getaway
We absolutely loved our stay. The place is spotless and unbelievably welcoming. It is a very easy short walk to downtown Langley’s galleries, shops, and restaurants. I wholeheartedly recommend Wasabi Cottage.
constructed and furnished with visitor as top priority
This cottage is the most amazing. From the closet furnishings to the kitchen items to the wonderful heating system - everything is well designed and provided to make our stay there perfect. We chose it for the location and size, but ended up loving it for itself.
You will be surrounded by a lively, colorful and friendly village with a warm, active community feeling. It is just a two minute walk to Langley village center and cultural amenities, yet you are on a quiet, private street and adjacent alley lane. You will find a movie theater, galleries, a seasonal street market, marina, local festivals, restaurants, pub, weekend live open-air music, plus water and mountain views with beach walking. Enjoy short and medium drives to expansive beaches, seasonal farmers markets, state parks, great trail systems and a ferry to peninsula destinations.
