Enjoy long walks along Sunlight Beach, romantic sunsets and perfect views of the Olympic Mts and Puget Sound at this charming beachfront apartment on Whidbey Island. The apartment is on the ground floor of an award winning new home on Useless Bay, on the southwest coast of the island, just a 10-minute drive from the Clinton ferry dock.
Professionally designed, the focus was to create a comfortable get-away for adults and children alike. The apartment has its own entrance, and private patio. The open concept main room includes a sociable seating area, dining table that extends to seat 6 people and a well equipped kitchen. One bedroom has a queen size bed, the second has 2 twin size beds. The large bathroom includes a tub/shower combination and heated floor. The patio has a table, 4 chairs, a gas grill and a lounge chair. Walk up a few steps to the lawn and another patio at the beachside with a fire pit and sand-play area for little ones.
Useless Bay is shallow, so low tide means long walks a quarter of a mile or more, building sand forts, and setting your crab trap for wonderful Dungeness crabs. Bring your water toys because high tide is the time for water sports.
A few miles away is the charming town of Langley full of art galleries, bistros and cafes. Grocery stores are close by and well stocked.
Activities include hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, antique shopping. Visit Fort Casey, picnic, or see the Rhododendron Garden, the Island County Fair or one of several art fairs held on the island.

The cottage is serviced by a community well and a septic system. The water is excellent, but during high season precious. Also be aware that septic systems can fill up quickly. Please conserve water.
