This home was not originally built to be a vacation rental. I originally lived in this home back in 1975. My Mother moved out of state while the home sat empty for years. She decided to sell in 2002 & it was a perfect opportunity to turn the 1970 eye sore into my personal sanctuary, a unique architectural dream which allowed me to express my many artistic talents showcased throughout the property. We've realized that this home is not being utilized & enjoyed as much as it should be. We hoped by making it a vacation rental that others would cherish their time here as much as we do.

We can either take the Mukilteo ferry to the island or the scenic drive through Conway, LaConner known worldwide for the annual tulip festival & over Deception Pass which gets more visitors annually than the Grand Canyon & visit historical Fort Casey. It is a short drive to our private beach, downtown Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Langley an active Naval Base. Any local destination is more than 10 minutes away by car. In the evening we love to roast marshmallows in the courtyard fire pit making S'mores, relaxing on the front deck reading a book, curling up by the copper fireplace watching movies & sleeping in late while hearing the waves crash below.

Beware of dishonest owner!

We rented this place for a weekend in September, 2013. The place was well maintained, and fully stocked. The phone and internet weren't working when we got there, but was resolved within the same day after contacting the owner (Shaun). The view of the water, and the stars when the sky is clear is amazing, and the neighbors were very nice and friendly. Few things to be aware of: Though the listing states the place can fit 10 people, it would be very uncomfortable to fit more than 8. The property doesn't have direct access to the water, and will need to walk over half a mile to do so. Finally, we saw a snake in two out of the three nights we were there, so I wont recommend this place for people with children.

My main concern is the owners lack of cooperation once we left the property. I've attempted to contact Shaun via email, cell phone and through text messages, and all my attempts to get an honest answer as to when I would get my security deposit back have failed. After 4 months of trying, I can't help but feel cheated and frustrated. Keeping in mind how large the deposit and the cleaning fees are, I would highly suggest you look else where. There are plenty of great properties on Whidbey and neighboring islands that provide better customer service, which you can rent without the need to risk such a large deposit.

This is a beautiful home with an Ahh-mazing views! It was the perfect get-away to recharge and forget about the real world. We saw eagles and deer every day and lounging on the deck was a great way to start and end the day. The kitchen was clean and well-stocked with the basics. The binoculars were well used and the fire pit is a great addition - especially on chilly nights. The neighbors are friendly and it is an easy commute to Coupeville for some pretty great food. The owner was awesome and we feel very fortunate to have booked this home and will be back again soon! Thank you for a great time!

The title should say water view as this house doesn't sit on the beach but on a cliff.

The house has 3 bedrooms but there isn't really a loft. There is a landing on which you enter the bedrooms. We were a group of five adults and five teenagers. The teens had to sleep in the living room and some in the master room. There needs to be better sitting in the deck and a table for guests to eat outdoors and enjoy the view. There were chairs and a table in the patio but not in front. There isn't a good yard in which to play so I wouldn't recommend this for families with young children. There is also a steep bank which could be dangerous for young children. There were some other issues that need attending to such as curtains on the windows for privacy and sleep, hand soap in the bathrooms, mirrors in the bedrooms, potholders in the kitchen. This house reminded me of a bachelor pad.

A large group of my friends and I spent an awesome Memorial Day weekend here. The price is so good for the quality of the place, the view, and space.

Neighbors were close by, but they were so friendly and tolerant of our large party. Huge deck and yard for relaxing and games. Beach access was a short walk.

We would definitely rent from the owner Shaun in the future. He is very friendly and helped us with all logistics we needed to make the renting process easy.

Had such a good time!

We really enjoyed this place. We had our three "big" kids with us, 20, 19 & 17 plus our little one, 2, and we all fit very comfortably in this lovely home. There wasn't anything that we lacked. The view from the porch and master bedroom is spectacular! We had a fire in the fire pit every night. The weather was fantastic while we were there. The neighbours are friendly (as are their dogs). We are keeping this place on our radar and hope to be back again (probably without kids next time :D).
