A Self Sustaining Beachfront Family Vacation Home
On, arrival you will find generous parking. Four flights of steps divide you from the rest of the world. A tram will carry your baggage down to the two-bedroom turnkey vacation rental nestled on the hillside of the southern tip of Whidbey Island. The natural rural setting combine the quaint appeal of a Puget Sound waterfront cottage community with miles of secluded beach to comb for agates and shells or any other water passion. Conveniently located 15 minutes from Langley or the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry, this is a perfect place to enjoy all the activities the island offers. The size and infrastructure of our home limits us to allow a maximum of 4 adults or a family of 6. For the courtesy of our guests this home is a non-smoking, non-pet facility, and Not ADA accessible.
Possession Beach House has been a Vacation Rental since 1999. We have had guest from around the world and enjoy return guests, some of whom have been returning for a decade. The home is a work in process. Originally built in 1942 and remolded in 1968, I bought into a place that needed every board to be replaced and have been doing so piece by piece with my guests enjoying the steady progress. Of course there are signs of the change throughout the home as the transition is made. Cracks from leveling the house when a new foundation was installed and areas sorely needing renovation while patiently waiting their turn. All in all, the home is a comfortable cozy place you will feel at home in. Eclectic, yes; modern designer home, not yet.
Indoor; on the first floor, you will find the main living area with living room, dining, kitchen, laundry, bath, and spare room. The living Room has been renovated boasting windows that surround the room with view. There is a 41” flat screen, Smart DVD player, and Wi-Fi. The Dining room/kitchen area seats six and has a roomy “one butt” kitchen. The kitchen had most everything you will need to cook, bake, and feed your family. Bottled Drinking water is provided. Regrettably to some, there is no dishwasher. There is a single rollaway and a hideabed great for kids but uncomfortable for adults. Lol
Surrounding the home outdoors there is a fireplace that anchors the expansive deck. Among the amenities we have; Charcoal BBQ, outdoor dining table and chairs for 4, 4 adirondack chairs, Propane heater, propane crab cooker.
On the second floor there are two bedrooms; a front room with queen bed and a view of the sound and a back bedroom with a queen bed and a half bath.
On the ground floor; the home is in progress… there will be; a future Sunroom; entertainment room, foyer, ¾ bath, and interior stairway to the rest of the home.
Outside; there is a lawn and lower deck. And of course the beach! Amenities include; a picnic table a couple loveseats and a small row boat*.
Risk and responsibly is incurred with use.

Great location right on the water
We really enjoyed our time relaxing right on the water. Views were magnificent during the sunny and rainy days we had. The house was equipped with everything that we needed. Really appreciate having the trolley to bring our stuff up and down the steps.
Beautiful property, great beach to walk, play, and view the abundance of wildlife!!
We had an amazing three days and two nights. Cozy accommodations, clean, beautiful views from every angle. Our two boys enjoyed their AM walk on the beach and played for hours...then repeat in the early evening:) There are so many things to do on Whidbey but we were quite content to stay at the house, nestled up, enjoying the peaceful serenity. Thank you, we will be back!!
We enjoyed the view and the peaceful setting.
Loved the outside deck area!
The interior of the house could really use updating but the location and outdoor patio was wonderful. You are literally on the beach. The stairs up and down may not be for everyone but the tram helps to bring your luggage and coolers down. My only complaint is that linens and towels must be washed, dried and put away. I feel that this should be disclosed upfront in the description of the property (prior to paying a rental fee). The owner was responsive and was quick to reply to my emails.
just what we needed
Nice house as described. Good size for the four of us. Loved watching orcas from the deck one morning! Kitchen furnished many staples which was nice. Trolley for the luggage was very handy! Only suggestion I can make is that before you reserve, you should know that the house needs to be cleaned, sheets/towels laundered, etc before you leave. No problem, but if we had known this in advance we would have paid for two nights instead of three. There is no time to do laundry if you have an early departure planned as we did so we ended up having to leave a day early and renting a motel elsewhere. This should be explained before paying for the reservation. Bruce was very good about answering questions we had ahead of time... but this was one question we didn't know to ask. I would rent again as we had a very nice stay. Cleaning deposit was returned after a couple weeks.
Great location, good space
The living room and deck views are amazing!
