Harbor House is a beautiful, no bank, waterfront home on Holmes Harbor, Whidbey Island, with sweeping views of Puget Sound, Mt. Eerie, spectacular sunsets and abundant wildlife. The home, which is 2,500 sq. ft. and comfortably sleeps 12 (with a mix of adults and children), was fully remodeled from the ground up in May 2016, including new appliances, beds, mattresses, linens, electronics (TVs, games), sinks, toilets, and lighting fixtures, and is now available for your vacation getaway. The full property is comprised of a main house, two suites including large game room, each connected by covered breezeways.
The main house has a spacious, open floor plan including a living room with a "river rock" gas fireplace and a TV, a dining room, a well-appointed gourmet kitchen fully stocked with new pots, pans, dishes, glassware and kitchen utensils, a powder room, a full bathroom with double sinks, a utility room with a washer, dryer and sink, large closet space, a master bedroom with a king-size bed and TV, and a second bedroom with a twin bunk bed over a full-size bed.
Walk a few feet from the main house under a covered breezeway to Suite 1. This suite includes: one bedroom with a full-over-full bunk and a twin trundle, a second bedroom with a queen bed, and then a bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet in between the bedrooms.
Suite 2 is just a few steps from Suite 1 through a covered breezeway. This suite has a bedroom with a queen bed and sitting area. The bathroom has a shower, sink, and toilet. This suite also includes a large game room on the opposite side of the bathroom.
The game room is available for indoor entertainment for big and little kids alike. This room has a large, comfortable seating area, a new 55" TV, WiFi, books, games, a Nintendo Wii video game console, video games, DVDs, an air hockey table and a mini fridge.
For your outdoor pleasure, there’s outdoor seating on the back patio or the front porch where you may enjoy outdoor cooking on the new gas grill and sitting by the fire pit. There is also a large grassy area for yard games and fun. For quiet time, enjoy reading a book on the large, wood swing. And, of course, you are just a few steps from the beach, the bulkhead and a boat launch. So bring your kayaks or canoe! Or rent them here during your stay.
If you enjoy fishing and crabbing, this is one of the best spots on the island! You can pick up your license at the nearby Ace hardware store.
Harbor House is perfect for anyone with mobility challenges, as it is all one level. It’s a great getaway for family reunions, weekend escapes, business retreats, or just a place to escape to relax and enjoy. The home is minutes from Freeland Park, Freeland Hall, grocery and hardware stores, a coffee stand, and a variety of restaurants.
Close proximity to Seattle, Port Townsend, Anacortes, and the San Juan Islands should you want to take a day trip somewhere. Deception Pass, the most visited State park in all of Washington, is at the north end of the island, just over a 1 hour drive. Great shopping, parks, hikes, and local attractions, may keep you right here on the south end; even if you come for a week or two!
We know you will love our home as much as we do, and hope you will make it your getaway destination any time of the year.
We can accommodate up to 12 guests when there is a mix of adults and children; please be sure to look at bed configuration if you have more than 8 people in your group.
