About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our kid friendly, dog friendly, accessible, no smoking two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath home (2359sqft) is perfectly suited for two couples or a family. Our place is right on the water. The 800 square foot deck and firepit are very close to the water at high tide in Admiralty Bay. The two large, bedroom suites each feature a queen-size bed. Two full baths (both with walk in shower & bench) and half bath allow for everyone to have privacy. There is free high speed WIFI through the house and the recreation room includes a 46 inch flat screen, Blu-ray DVD & satellite TV. The living room/dining room and kitchen covers the full width of the house on the ocean side and is completely windowed for maximum ocean views. There is a third queen bed (wall system) located in the dining room (which closes off with pocket doors) overlooking the water. The kitchen features everything a gourmet cook could want plus there is an outdoor beach barbecue (firepit) area and charcoal BBQ. The house is heated with two newly installed ductless heating and cooling systems plus two gas fireplaces that are guaranteed to take the chill off any of those on shore breezes you may encounter. All linens and towels are provided, there is an extensive library with games and DVDs to enjoy as well. There are two enclosed patio side yards which is handy for your canine companions when they aren't running on the beach or swimming. Dog are allowed in the house as well, but not on the furniture!

Fun things to do on the property and nearby: Spend hours beach combing on the shores of Admiralty Bay or gazing out at the view of the Olympic Mountains and Keystone ferry making it's run across the Sound. Fly kites and explore the big guns at nearby Fort Casey State Park or hop a ferry to the historic town of Port Townsend for dining or shopping. Bike ride around Crockett Lake and tour historical farms. Fish directly from our beach and bird watch in the adjacent state bird preserve. Hike the bluff trail above the ocean in nearby Ebey's Federal Reserve. Drop crab pots or go clamming. Scuba dive at the state underwater park just down the beach and scour the horizon for submarines and cruise ships. Zip into nearby historic Coupeville (a 8 minute drive or 25 minute bike ride) for dinner and shopping.

All this is possible from our beach home situated at water's edge and surrounded by a 1600+ acre wildlife preserve, the largest in the Pacific Northwest. Our home is adjacent to a state owned preserve and feels very private. We are located on Whidbey's Scenic Isle Way 90 minutes from Seattle (including ferry from Mukilteo) and minutes from cute and historic Coupeville. Deception Pass State Park is just a short drive away - a site visitors come from far away to see. On occasion during the summer, the jet Prowler squadron based at Whidbey Naval Air Station practice touch and go up at the airstrip about a mile away. You can park at the end of that airstrip and watch them roar overhead or you can admire them from our deck. You will never lack for things to do - or not to do if you so please. You might even be lucky enough to have our resident bald eagle sit on the flagpole for your viewing enjoyment!

Jogging and or beach walking for miles, in season fishing off the beach, rent crab pots and set them out in front of the house. Our beach is popular in late August/early Sept during salmon season-you can fish right off the beach for pinks. Great agate hunting as well.

enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

OUr family of 4 enjoyed our stay at the Beach House. Staying at the house, we enjoyed hours of beach time, floating on the bay, and enjoying the wildlife. The house was super comfortable and had everything that our family needed. Thanks for sharing your home. This was a fantastic way to finish off the summer.

Exceptional views, beautiful and comfortable home -- jet noise can be bothersome

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful summer vacation at this very special waterfront home with breath-taking views of the Sound, Olympic mountains, shipping lanes, Port Townsend ferry. Truly an ideal location and very convenient (within 10 minutes to outstanding hiking in Ebey's Landing and Coupeville shops/restaurants/kayaking on Penn cove. The location provided access to something special for everyone in the family.) The home's floor plan was very thoughtfully designed; comfortable spaces with expansive views from every window and tasteful, artistic touches throughout. Plenty of room for six adults without feeling cramped, well-stocked kitchen and baths. The owners have thought of everything. The outdoor spaces included several seating areas on numerous view decks, large fire pit, charcoal grill (charcoal included) and even a horseshoe pit! Now, the downside -- which we were advised of beforehand by the owner, so didn't come as a surprise -- the Naval jet touch-and-go landings can be disruptive since this beautiful location is ground zero for the jet noise. We adjusted our evening time outdoors since the noise was painfully loud from approx. 8/9 PM - 11 PM during the weekdays. There were no flights on Fri-Sun, so the weekend was blissfully peaceful with perfect sunset views and evenings around the fire pit. (FYI -- the naval flight schedule is published a week ahead with some indication of flying times, so we prepared accordingly. Each weeknight varied on timing, but it seems that weekends are generally free from the air traffic.) If jets are not practicing during your visit, you will be spared this one annoyance and you can be assured of a superb front-row seat to island life on spectacular Puget Sound!

Excellent location on the water.

  • 4 of 5

House was great and amenities were excellent. Only downside was the Navy jets flying directly overhead four nights out of seven.

Great house for family or friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

Right on the beach, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, Mount Rainier, Ferries... Seals, birds and yes owls! Perfect gathering for large parties with a huge living room/kitchen area with fantastic views. The fire pit was a plus for cool fall evenings! We will rent again!

a family gathering, from different states

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and the layout is perfect. Much more space than I would have thought, from the amount of bedrooms/bathrooms. the kitchen was well appointed and in a nice location within the house. Very open. The beach is covered with driftwood and the view is SPECTACULAR. the only thing to note is that the currents and winds are more extreme from this side of the island. Better for windsurfing than canoeing.
