About the property

Charming & Spacious Whidbey Island Beach House! Comfortably Sleeps Up to 8!

New on market July 2014! Charming and spacious three bedroom two bath beach house on beautiful Whidbey Island in Harrington Lagoon with unobstructed views of Penn Cove, Saratoga Passage and Mount Baker! Create lasting memories here as you come to relax and explore all that Whidbey Island has to offer!

The home is centrally located on the island just 30 minutes from the Clinton ferry landing and just south of historic and charming Coupeville! Enjoy the Saturday Farmer’s Market which runs April through mid October, fine restaurants, art galleries, antique shops, ice cream, and so much more! Also close to Fort Casey and Ebey’s Landing for adventurous day hikes! For the golf lovers, a number of scenic and challenging golf courses are also close by. If you are coming from the north end of the state, enjoy a drive over Deception Pass and through Oak Harbor instead of taking the ferry.

Watch whales, otters, bald eagles, boats and much more from the view decks or inside with the walls of windows towards the water! Directly in front of the home and through the white picket fence is a large community lot with a large grassy area that is directly on the water’s edge so the beach is just steps away for walking and exploring and having bonfires!

The great room offers stunning views of the water and Mount Baker as well as a warm cozy gas fireplace and a large flat panel TV. The dining room also looks out towards the water and features a table that seats up to 8 for large family gatherings! The open and fully equipped kitchen includes a electric glass cook top, microwave and an eating bar for additional seating. Just off the dining area and kitchen is access to the view deck where you can enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee and gaze out towards the water and Mount Baker. Or enjoy a summer barbecue as the children play a ball game on the grass below!

This home features three bedrooms…a master bedroom with a king bed, a second bedroom with a queen bed, and a third front view bedroom with a queen bed and trundle bed. A full size washer and dryer are also available for use!

Whether you’re looking for a family vacation, a romantic getaway, a girl’s weekend or guy’s golf getaway, or another reason you need to escape from the “real world,” this home is the perfect place!

Why Frank Mortenson chose Whidbey Island

This beautiful beach house has been in our family for over 50 years! 5 generations of family members have come to the Island to explore the beach and beautiful surroundings that Whidbey Island has to offer. Only 60-90 minutes from Seattle yet a 'world away'. There truly is meaning in the phrase, ' Island Time'. Come relax, refresh and rejuvenate!

What makes this house unique

What sets the property apart is the views from the living room and dining room. Unparalleled views of Penn Cove, Saratoga Passage, Mt Baker and Harrington Lagoon. Also enjoy the views from 2 spacious decks. The beach is literally 100 yards from the house.

Cozy cottage with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at the beach house. We were close to the water and had great access for dipping our toes, clamming and putting in our kayaks. The home is in an area protected from wind so even when the winds whistled on the island all was calm for us. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to prepare meals. There were plenty of towels for everyone, and the beds were very comfortable. The decor was warm and homey, and everything was clean. We felt more like we were staying in a friends home than a rental property. Frank was responsive and friendly in our communications with him. Thanks for sharing your lovely home. We can't wait to come back!

Great beachcombing for kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 3 kids, the grandparents, and our dog. It was so close to the beach! During low tide, the kids found crabs, clams, and sea stars. We had beautiful views of Mt. Baker. The house was clean and had everything we needed. We appreciated the Wifi and On Demand TV. Our elderly dog appreciated having no steps! This house would work well for any person or animal who has a hard time with stairs. It was close enough to Coupeville and well-located centrally on Whidbey, so easy access to anywhere on the island. The one downside was the Naval jets flying so low over the area. 1-2 times a day, they'd do their drills for about an hour at a time. When they were flying, it was hard to be outside because we couldn't hear each other talking. Two of the nights we were there, they flew until 11 or 11:30 pm and it was hard for the kids to sleep. I know the owners don't have any way to control this, which is why I'm still giving 5 stars, but I just thought people should be aware, because a person or animal who is sensitive to noise could have a hard time here.

lovely house, lovely setting and view

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with a great open floor plan coupled with both east and west outdoor patios and lots of picture windows to view Saratoga Passage and Mount Baker. It is well appointed and has all the amenities. It is convenient to Coupeville and its history, shops, and special restaurants. We would love to return and enjoy it all again.

Beautiful Beach house with excellent water views!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well cared for with fabulous waterviews from the living room, dining room and two spacious decks outside where we enjoyed breakfast and dinner. The boat launch/beach is visible and in walking distance from the back yard. As far as amenities, there is washer & dryer and well stocked kitchen (i.e. pots, pans, dishes, utensils). The beds were comfortable and there is television, Internet and plenty of board games. The only negative was that initially the volume on the entertainment system didn't seem to work, but we were able to contact the owner right away and remedy the problem. We would definitely consider staying here again on a future trip to Whidbey Island.

A great place to relax and de-stress

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very relaxing 3 days in Shorebird Lane, the views are spectacular and the mist/cloud cleared occasionaly for us to see Mount Baker across the water. A very different view from the one we have in Bellingham. The house layout suited us really well as my husban's mobility is not good and he uses a cane to get about. The easy chairs were not too suitable for him but that did not spoil our trip. We expect to have to compromise on his comfort.

We had a friend, from England, with us and we were able to show her bald eagles and a deer. She is a real bird enthusiast so spent many a happy hour watching them flit about.
