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 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.

Cozy, comfortable, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

We absolutely loved our 2 days at the Wasabi cabin. It is such a sweet and relaxing space and is so well thought out. The perfect place for my me and my husband to unwind. Super close walk to town. I hope to stay here again!
