Whidbey Island's finest vacation rental property, this spacious 4 bedroom/3 bath vacation home with two adjacent one bedroom cabins is sited on 155' of 'sugar sand' no-bank waterfront facing west. Build castles on the beautiful sandy beach. Cast for salmon from the beach.

An easy stroll to the south are the towering firs and old growth hiking trails of South Whidbey State Park. There are many beautiful vacation homes on Whidbey Island; we can uniquely offer a walk-out sandy beach with sunsets, views of the complete Olympic mountain range, spacious grounds with large lawn and gardens, a stunning and private wooded setting.
A brand new kitchen caps a two year major remodel, bringing interiors to world class luxury standards. The interiors complement the gorgeous views from every window. Each of the 6 bedrooms have astounding water views.
Offers world class luxury and architecture: The Beachfront House and its two adjacent cabins provide over 4200 square feet of luxury space, with over 1200 more in exterior living space. A major remodel by Seattle architect Bruce Stock and Associates was completed in 2010 with interior styling by designer Lisa Wise . Amazing beach, water, and mountain views are framed from every room. A huge open plan kitchen offers granite countertops, teak trestle dining set seating 10-12, and every appliance and utensil we could think of. Our two largest bedrooms each include a king bed. A third contains a queen bed and twin bunk beds. A fourth contains a twin with trundle bed and opens directly into Bedroom three, great for a family arrangement. You’ll find oak and cork floors, antique Persian carpets, cedar clad cathedral ceilings, 3 cozy gas fireplaces, entertainment size deck with outdoor speakers, and an cozy atrium room. The cute adjacent cabins have also been recently updated as well.

Each cabin has its own bathroom, as well as satellite TV service, phone/intercom, and of course a coffee-maker. A lighted concrete path and phone intercom system connects the three structures, allowing both privacy and togetherness at your option. All bedrooms have 300-600 thread count linens, down comforters, and designer furnishings.

Why Nancy chose Greenbank
My husband and I looked for Whidbey Island real estate for 2 years before purchasing this property on Whidbey's westside. It is truly the best beach location on Whidbey, and we bought it for the incredible views, sandy beach and SW facing aspect. Over the past 10 years, we have done extensive remodeling to bring the structures to luxury standards and enjoy sharing our 'Kennedy compound' (as friends have termed it!) with newer guests as well as families who return year after year. We donated most of our profits to environmental and women's health charities, with well over $60,000 donated over the past 5 years. We have used VRBO to introduce the property to new guests for over 8 years now.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Our knitting group came for a WONDERFUL weekend of knitting, gabbing, eating, walking, and just enjoying each other's company! We had two unexpected visitors- a bird flew in and a gecko walked in. Since they did not know how to knit they left quickly. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We loved our weekend here and look forward to returning. ** Thank you for sharing a great view, waves, wind, and mountains. It was a perfect place for our Knitzvah Knitting Retreat. ** I had a great time in our beautiful house w/my fabulous friends. Sleeping in the Eagle's Nest was a true treat! Can't wait to return! Best, Ruth, Maggie, Rita, Carol, Sis, Dee, and Barbara
