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!

    Crockett Lake Bird Sanctuary View on map

    Thousands of shorebirds (more than 17 different species) rely on the lake as an important migration staging area. The area provides critical wintering and nesting habitat for more than 13 species of ducks. At least nine species of raptors are regular visitors, including Peregrine Falcons and Merlins. And, more than 238 species of birds have been recorded in the Crockett Lake area. The lake also has an interesting history. Anticipation of the Great Northern Railway passing through Whidbey Island on its way to Port Townsend sent speculators into a frenzy platting the towns of “Chicago” and “Brooklyn” on the Keystone Spit to take advantage of the new commerce promised by the impending railroad in the late 1880s.

    Fort Casey State Park View on map

    Fort Casey is a 467 acre state park which was built in the 1890s as a strategic fortress to defend Pugest Sound. Explore the huge gun batteries and pillboxes or watch eagles and fly a kite on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, and Fort Worden at Port Townsend, were built at the entrance with huge guns creating a "Triangle of Fire." This military strategy was built on the theory that the three fortresses would thwart any invasion attempt by sea. The Admiralty Head Lighthouse is located in the state park.
