Overview

Holmes Harbor Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 to 3 people only)

New (2010) cabin nestled among Douglas Fir trees and mature landscaping. Verde fire granite countertops and real hardwood floors throughout with big picture windows make this vacation home feel as if it is part of the natural setting. Trails around property and to the beach. Private barbeque and outdoor fireplace to sit, relax and share a glass of wine.

Horses, sheep and goats frolic in nearby pastures while two Golden Retrievers will gladly show you the way to the beach trail and stairs.

Bring your boat (up to 16')or kayak and launch it at our private community boat launch on generally calm Holmes Harbor. Crabbing and fishing are great!

Bicycle riding is a must on Whidbey as well.

About The Owner

Steve and Laura Strehlau have owned their property on Whidbey Island since 1989. Their log home has been featured in local magazines and their garden has been on the Whidbey Island Garden Tour in 2007 & 2011. This newly built cabin (800 sq ft) is located on the six acres on which their log home is situated. They share their time between their home on Whidbey Island and their home on Maui. They also love to travel and meet new people throughout the world. Animals are a big part of their lives with sheep, goats, a cat and two Golden Retrievers sharing their home.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Holmes Harbor

With over six acres of forest and beach, we wanted to share our land with others who want a bucolic setting for a vacation. Our vacation rental has just been completed (spring 2010) and is landscaped and ready for more guests. The home is bright and airy though it is located in a stand of 2nd growth Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. It offers both the woodlands and the beach, making it an ideal vacation rental. The setting is extremely private and quiet for a retreat like atmosphere. Trail and stairs meander thru huge evergreen and fern filled forest to our secluded beach.

What makes this cabin unique

Beach walking, crabbing in season, salmon fishing and picnicking are just some of the many outdoor activities here. We have even been awakened by barking sea lions and viewed grey whales in the Harbor on occasion. Bald Eagles fly on currents and deer are regular visitors. Being close to Seattle and Everett, Whidbey Island is an ideal getaway for anyone looking for a tranquil weekend or longer vacation. Our village of Langley offers excellent restaurants, shopping, art and entertainment and is only six miles from our door.

What a wonderful place! High end finishes, clean and comfortable and the setting is magical! The owners couldn't be nicer. We first went for a weekend away from the kids and are now going back with the kids and the dog because we loved it so much!

Lovely 1 bedroom in the woods of Whidbey!

This place has great details and amenities. It's pretty new so everything is in great condition. It is in the woods though-so on the shorter, rainy days of winter, it can be a bit dark. Good thing the house itself is so cozy!

This was the perfect place for us. It was a great place for us to spend some quiet, romantic time together. We like to cook and enjoyed having all the kitchen supplies. There were also places nearby for biking, hiking, sightseeing, shopping. Next time we'll plan to stay longer!

Heavenly

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our 4-year old son on vacation here for two nights. We couldn't have been more impressed with it-the entire cabin was immaculate, tasteful, beautiful and the grounds were amazing. Our son fit perfectly in the little den on the futon and we still had privacy in the master bedroom. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The walk to the beach was a bit of a hike, but once you got there, it was so worth it. The beach at sunset is unsurpassed and it was some of the best beach combing we've ever done! We felt like we were in a 'hidden' estate teeming with magical, peaceful qualities. We couldn't get over how quiet the grounds were also. We were very relaxed and would re-book in a heartbeat.
