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...

Charming Little Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a friends wedding and this was the most perfect getaway for my husband and I. Quiet, cozy, and serene, absolutely had a great time staying here and can't wait to come again for a short getaway. Thanks Rob!

Quite with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We were on Whidbey Island for my nephews wedding and chose this home for proximity to the wedding venue, pets allowed and number of people that could sleep there. We had 4 adults, a 1 1/2 year old baby and a golden retriever. My daughter and son in law slept in the bedroom with their baby, hubby and I slept in the loft. The home was clean and kitchen well equipped for our needs. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a trail to a really nice park and beach. There are French doors that open to a small deck with views of the water and ceiling fans that helped to cool the home. This home would be perfect for a couple looking for a quite get away or a family with kids old enough to climb up to the loft. I wouldn't recommend planning to have adults sleep in the loft, it was ok but it is open to below and the beds are twin size. The home owner Rob has been great, he responded quickly to emails and refunded our deposit promptly. I would definitely stay here again if it was just my husband and I with our dog.

This is a very nice cottage. Clean, quiet and secluded. It had everything we needed for a family vacation. It has a nice kitchen that we always need when vacationing with kids. Our children especially enjoyed the loft area. It is so well designed! The cottage has a fantastic view! We met some very friendly neighbors! The beach area is beautiful and quiet. The owner was easy to work with! If you're looking for a place to get away, this is the cottage to rent!

Cute place and the owner very responsive and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

The place is totally as expected, clean, well stocked and super cute. Neighbors are really nice as well. Was perfect for our needs. owner was very responsive to our questions and also made it super easy for me to stay another day while I was waiting on a bid I made on a house and then get the inspection. Thank you Rob. Only thing I would suggest (super minor nit) is to consider getting a tv with hdmi connections for those of us that bring our own devices to connect to it. Not that we watched much tv so not a major issue. would definitely stay there again.

Perfect central Whidbey location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this delightful cottage - it is small but it was sufficient for our two kids (aged 8 and 10) and the two of us. We were able to walk down to the community beach, bike ride straight from the house and easily get around the island from this location. It was clean and well stocked - I definitely recommend this place!

Map

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.
