Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Views of Saratoga Passage from the prow-like deck will enhance your stay in our newer, warm, cozy cottage. Buy some wood on the SE corner of the highway and Race Rd on the way in and enjoy the warmth and charm of the wood stove. The windows bring in plenty of light and are wrapped in pine. The bedroom has a high ceiling, a ceiling fan, and a queen-size bed. The couch is a hide-a-bed and the loft offers three more single beds. Wood floors and trim are accompanied by granite and stainless in the kitchen for a warm but modern feel. Designed in the spirit of cottage architecture our place offers a warm feeling with wood accents but with modern finishes and all the conveniences of newer construction. You will love it here,many of our customers come back year after year and have made staying here an important part of their lives.

Across the quiet street from the cottage is a path to the community beach. It is a short walk to the beach which offers 1/4 mile of beach-combing and shelling. There is also a play area for kids with a large grassy field and swings. Enjoy the view of Saratoga Passage, and the peaceful setting which often includes deer meandering through the property.

Take a short drive to the historic Coupeville waterfront or explore Fort Casey (the kids will love exploring the old concrete bunkers and looking at the big guns). The far north end of the island offers spectacular views and an amazing beach at Deception Pass; moving south you will pass through the towns of Coupeville, Freeland, Langley and Clinton. Coupeville and Langley have been the setting for a few movies and are eclectic, fun little towns. There are great events throughout the island year round.

You'll love your stay at our cottage, come and explore a northwest treasure, Whidbey Island and the wonderful and eclectic town of Coupeville!

About Rob

My longtime friend Steve graduated from the University of Washington College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He designed and we built the cottage in 2003/2004 and we have shared it with many people since. I have owned, operated and managed vacation rentals for over 15 years. My son & I look forward to providing our guests a comfortable and enjoyable experience at our vacation home. Thanks for considering our property, Rob

Rob purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Rob chose Whidbey Island

The cottage is situated on a quiet lot that is speckled with big beautiful Fir trees and has a peek-a-boo view of Saratoga Passage. It is a wonderful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Absolute peace and quiet and watching the resident eagle soar from the deck while watching the occassional sailboat glide by. Watching all of the deer meander across the property and snack on the foliage. Walking and beachcombing, especially during low tide.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for the use of the cottage, it's wonderful!! The view from your deck, 5:45 Easter morning, was very moving...watching the sun rise, the colors turn from orange to full light, was magical...Enjoy the bottle of wine we left for you...

Great place for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Rob's cottage is a wonderful place if you are looking for something quiet and relaxing. We had some trouble locating the beach access but Rob answered our phone call right away. We will definitely come back.

Very quiet and cozy stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time in this cozy rental. You forget how much noise pollution there is in Seattle until you stand on the deck here and hear only birds and waves. The decor is adorable, and it was a treat to see deer on the lawn each morning. Be aware that you'll have to work around the loft stairs in the middle of the room, but I'd definitely stay again!

Very nice and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, nice kitchen, easy walk to beach.

One suggestion....instructions for the TV remotes, there were four remotes for TV, DVD, stereo, etc. and we couldn't figure it out. Owner responded right way with instructions over the phone. Thanks!

Great spot to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this house for 4 nights. It was snug and cozy during a period of very high winds and some rain. The kitchen was well-equipped, the towels were thick, the bed and pillows were comfortable. Everything worked fine. There were comfortable places to sit with good lighting for reading. The wifi was very fast--better than most places away from home. (We didn't use the loft.) There's a nice view of the water and part of Camano Island. And the community beach was a real bonus--a long stretch to walk and beachcomb (when the tide is out), and we only saw one other person on it. It was great to be able to have our dog with us. The owner was easy to deal with and helpful when the power went out briefly. We definitely expect to rent this again.

Awesome hikes, beaches, Fort Casey and several great small towns close by! Visit Coupeville it is a quaint and attractive historic town that is situated on the waterfront about 10 minutes north of our cottage. In Coupeville you will find a grocery store, liquor store, bowling alley, many shops and several restaurants; it is a must visit small town.
