About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

This is a cozy 2 bedroom house within walking distance to Deception Pass State Park. Its directly across the street from the Cornet Bay Marina and the front yard is a stone's throw from the beach.

We have the largest lot in the neighborhood (fully fenced with gates) and it includes fruit trees, a garden, hammock, picnic tables, outdoor wood stove and a BBQ. Open but covered front porch is perfect for outdoor dining regardless of the weather but breakfast or lunch during the sunny summers are the best! All furniture is brand new (purchased late 2014). The larger bedroom contains a queen bed and a TV. The smaller one contains two single beds. The living room has a large L-shaped couch that can sleep two more people if needed (1 full height adult and 1 child) and there is a 55' flat screen TV with Direct TV. All together you can sleep 6 if needed. *There is a standard $100 cleaning charge for 4 guests, each guest up to 6 total is additional $15, so 6 guests would be $130 for cleaning.


There is wifi if you choose to stay tuned in and a full kitchen and bathroom with everything you need for a group as well as a small dining table. There is a laundry room attached to the garage outside if you need and we have lots of room for parking. Dogs may be approved on a case by case basis (please let us know the size and age of your dog and if they shed). *There is a $40 pet cleaning fee per dog that you must select during payment if your dog(s) is approved.

Please note - cell phone service can be spotty depending on your carrier but we have a landline you can use to call anywhere in the US.

There is so much to do outside in the immediate surrounding area or within a short drive. The town of Oak Harbor is 15 minutes south for groceries, wine, antiquing, etc. Deception Pass Bridge is within trail walking distance or about a 5 minute drive (literally around the corner), Anacortes is 20 minutes north. Fishing, crabbing, hiking, biking, kayaking or just plain relaxing are at your fingertips. There is a boat launch and dock right down the street. We have fishing poles, crab pots and kayaks ready for use. There is also a par 3 golf course 2 miles south.

I included some photos from the top of Goose Rock, which is the big hill on the other side of the water from the marina, and the top of Mt. Erie, which is about a 15 minute drive away on Fidalgo Island, and some photos of a nice crab and steak dinner we had last summer.

This is an easy 1.5 hour drive from Seattle or Vancouver B.C. so its just far enough from the cities to experience the rustic island vibe but not be too far away. Perfect for a long weekend or a couple weeks to decompress.

Owner info

About the owner: We have lived on Whidbey Island since the early '80s and feel so lucky to own two beautiful homes here. We live in the other house a few miles away and have usually had long term tenants but we've recently started doing short term rentals here. We know the neighbors well and use this house for mini-vacations ourselves because we love it so much!

Why the Owner Chose Oak Harbor, WA, USA:
This home and the surrounding scenery are beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice. All seasons here are an experience, but summer time in the Pacific Northwest is truly epic.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If there are any issues, we live three miles away and can help with anything you need. Just let us know!
