We bought this house to use as a second home and found that we weren't using it as much as we thought we would. We then decided to share it with others. We had been coming to Whidbey Island for years on vacation before we decided to buy. We hope that you will enjoy our house as much as we do, and you may even find yourself coming back as we and many of our guests have.

The best things about this house are how quiet it is, how far from civilization you feel, how relaxed you are, how great the hottub and its views are, how easy it is to see all of the island from this central location, and how easy it is to get to Seattle from here.

Some of our favorite restaurants include The Oystercatcher in downtown Coupeville - a small local place that uses local ingredients only (oystercatcherwhidbey dot com), also Frasers Gourmet Hideaway in Oak Harbor - a slightly larger restaurant, with an excellent menu in the Northwest Style (frasersgh dot com), and Prima Bistro in Langley - a perfect bistro style French restaurant that rivals food in some of the very best French bistros from NYC to SF (primabistro dot com)

We had a great time at the Happy House. The hot tub was hot, the views of Penn Cove were beautiful, and the house was roomy, well-appointed, and a breeze to stay in.

We loved the short walk to the community beach, searching for shells and marveling at the driftwood. We saw several bald eagles, searched for whales (no luck), and picked up some local shellfish for dinner in Coupeville which was only a few minutes away.

The kitchen was really well appointed—coffee maker, grinder, pots, pans, loads of dishes, glasses, and silverware. I appreciated another review that mentioned the knives—I don't expect good knives at a rental and no, these weren't very sharp. We brought a couple of our own and did great.

The owners were great to work with, very responsive and accommodating. We had a great time and everyone was impressed with the place we rented for our getaway!

We rented this house for a week in the summer of 2009 (the vrbo site didn't allow me to select that as my date of arrival) and had a wonderful time. We had some lovely meals out on the deck overlooking the water and the kitchen was well stocked with all of the little extras we needed. We also really enjoyed the hot tub, walking down the road to the beach, walking along the beach, and jogging along the road into Coupeville to enjoy the shops, restaurants, and pier.

Beautiful location with a great view.

We enjoyed staying in the 'Happy House.' The view was great. The hot tub very large and was well used by our group. It is a nicely updated property with very pleasing decor inside. It is a nice, quiet neighborhood. While too far to walk, it is a short drive to the main street. Coupeville is a real gem on Whidbey Island. Very good restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, lunch and dinner places.
Very clean inside with everything fresh and prepared. Even had the heat turned on. No dishwasher. But, we knew that from the description. It does get tiresome doing the dishes all the time when you stay for a week. Kitchen is pretty well stocked. Lots of dishes and flatware. Kitchen knives were all dull - could use a new set. All the appliances were in great shape and worked well.
Wi-fi was fast and efficient. Cell phone coverage was 'iffy' inside the house. The house is stocked with books and games for all ages.
Make sure you make a reservation for the ferry, especially if you take the Port Townsend to Coupville ferry.

Nice weekend at the Happy House

Celebrated my daughter's 16th birthday with a girls weekend get away at the Happy House. The house has lots of sleeping room for everyone and we loved hanging out in the big living room with two couches and a nice fireplace. Even thought the weather wasn't great - the view was wonderful even in the rain. I'd love to stay here again but for longer than a weekend!

Family wedding visit

We visited here for a family wedding. This was a great place to stay with the family. The kids and adults were very comfortable. Plenty of room inside and out. Only improvement could have been a blow dryer for hair prep before the wedding.
