Walk two minutes to the beach on Holmes Harbor. Build sandcastles, swim, kayak or relax and enjoy.

This newly remodeled cottage is located 3 miles north of Freeland in the private community of Beverly Beach. Just bring your personal items. The house is fully furnished and stocked with dishes, cookware and comfortable linens. We have three bedrooms that comfortably sleep 6, 1.5 baths.

**Advisory for Summer 2017** My neighbor 200' away is demolishing and rebuilding their house. Expect construction between 7:30-4:30 during the week day. I'm hoping this will not be a major issue but am reducing my rates to compensate**

Cozy and sweet

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy, clean and comfortable. Good location and easy to access Langley and the surroundings. Kitchen is nicely stocked, plenty of towels, the house is easy to find and I so appreciate that we did not have to do a huge clean up at the end of our holiday. We just started a load of towels. Dixie was easy to talk to and we had a good time.

A wonderful little house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cute little house in the trees near the water. It was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The sound of the wind in the trees was very soothing, and the view of the water through the trees was lovely. It was a quick walk down to the beach to look for shells and later to view a beautiful sunset. Thanks for maintaining the house so beautifully!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, it's very peaceful and big enough for our family to sleep well! Kids got their own bedrooms. Washer and dryer was very handy after lots of trips to the beach! House was clean, owner was very responsive.

Very Clean and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We were on island for a wedding and associated activities so didn't hang out at the birdhouse too much. We did walk down to the beach which is very nice. Our weather was warm and dry so we spent most of our time on the deck.

As mentioned in an earlier review, the coffee maker is a Keurig so if you want a pot, bring it. There was a refillable Keurig pod which we used with the ground coffee we brought. A couple of other kitchen items we would have liked to see were cooking spray, a griddle (pancakes) and a better spatula.

The birdcage was clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable. However, the house could use a bit of TLC, maybe a rental to a handyman and tool box. The drawer in the dresser in the smaller bedroom had come apart and the tree-mounted motion sensing spotlight had failed. It blinked on and off all night (3 minutes on, 10 seconds off, over and over) which was annoying since the window curtains are not blackout. I got a ladder and unscrewed the bulbs and everyone slept much better the second night. Finally there are a couple of boards on the deck that should probably be replaced. Watch where you place your chair.

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this cottage with 6 friends (3 couples) and we had a great time! The house is right by the water with views from the back patio. Although one of the bedrooms only had twin beds, we knew this coming in and were fine with it. The owner is really nice and helpful - and the place had everything we needed for our short stay (or longer, if you choose to do so). We only stayed there for 2.5 days but enjoyed it very much. The island is a treat in itself, we didn't realize we needed to take a ferry originally when booking, but it turned out to be a fun experience for all. There is a lot of stuff to do on the island which was awesome. The only downside is many stores and restaurants close early sometimes so you have to keep that in mind but overall I would highly reccomend.

Nice location to explore the island. Love the "birdhouse" theme of the home.

  • 5 of 5

We went to Whidbey Island to celebrate a wedding at Fireseed Catering. The birdhouse was a good fit for our family of five, (dad, mom, three kids). The neighborhood was nice and quite with good access to the private beach. My daughter had fun sighting the local wildlife. We also appreciated the details in the birdhouse that made it cozy and comfortable. I would stay here again.
