Overview

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!

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.

Our family had a fantastic time and we will be back next year

  • 4 of 5

Walk right out onto the beach. Can't beat the view. We saw the resident eagle on his perch daily. This house was equipped with everything you could need. Plenty of extra bedding for a couple of my son's friends that spent a night on the couch with us. We walked down to the Port Townsend ferry and walked on for a nice dinner over there one night. It was very calming to sit on the deck chairs and watch the ferry come and go. Easy drive into Coupeville for shopping.

Beautiful location with great views.

  • 5 of 5

The home was better than the pictures. The furnishings were all new and the bedrooms both had private bathrooms. Lots of extras provided for those who couldn't bring supplies with them. The private beach was so enjoyable and the fire pit was great for evening family gatherings.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for a last minute weekend trip during Coupeville's musselfest. The owner was extremely accommodating and got back to us right away. The house was spacious, beautiful, clean, could easily sleep 6 or more, dog friendly, and just steps from the water. As an unexpected bonus, we spotted an eagle perched on the property at least once each day. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay.

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.
