Enjoy all the comforts of a well appointed, light, and art filled living area with floor to ceiling windows and numerous skylights. Unwind by the upstairs/downstairs gas fireplaces with a book, or view egrets, bald eagles and sea otters as you sip a glass of wine on the expansive deck.
Rejuvenate as you listen to the waves lapping the shore. Access the beach from a walk across the lawn to the mid-bank stairs or follow a short path from the front door. Beach mats, snorkle gear, and picnic bags will add to your day at the beach.
Three private bedrooms include two queen and one double bed, each with down comforters and their own bath. One aero queen bed is also available. High quality linens and towels are provided.

Evenings are the perfect time to head outdoors to luxuriate in the privacy of the therapeutic 6-person “massage” hot tub that overlooks the Saratoga Straits, or to gaze at the glow of embers from the wood burning fire pit.

Over the years we have found ourselves drawn to Oak Harbor any time we had a few days to get away. Its' peacefulness, miles of beautiful beaches and scenery, friendly residents, and so many areas to explore led us back again and again.
We love the quiet neighborhood and the constantly changing seaside vistas, from wildlife to fishing boats, to the clouds floating by, and the sun shining on Mt. Baker. We have furnished the home in a contemporary yet casual style with an eye toward comfort and relaxation.
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more! It was a perfect getaway on a beautiful island. The house is perfectly situated for a relaxing vacation. It had everything we needed from the large and well stocked kitchen to the variety of books in the library. The owner was wonderfully accommodating, communicative and provided excellent instructions for all the necessities. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
This was our best VRBO yet. ALL the comforts of home. Perfect weather added to our enjoyment of this wonderful home.
The house is like the pictures but even better. We absolutely loved looking out the windows, or sitting on the deck, couldn’t get enough of the view. It helps to bring binoculars so you can see the bald eagles in a nearby tree or find out what’s splashing about in the strait.
It was great having a bathroom for each bedroom. We had breakfast and dinner at the house every day and if there was something we forgot to buy, chances are their pantry had it. It was like staying in a friend’s home (a friend with a hot tub). We would definitely stay again.
The pictures don't give justice to this house. It's very clean and well appointed. We stayed with my parents and two young children (almost two and 4) and had a good time even though the weather wasn't the best. The hot tub was wonderful, the beach below, great for our kids to collect rocks and shells. We had lots of space, with a full bathroom for every bedroom. Quiet neighbors, and a view to die for, this was a great place to visit. Thanks again for having us!
This home far exceeded my expectations! It is very spacious, clean, and has awesome views of the shipping lanes and mountains. The hot tub was a wonderful bonus. It is quite a tranquil atmosphere and we got to see deer, eagles, and other wildlife everyday. It's proximity made it easy to get to town, deception pass, and other attractions on Whidbey Island. The home is well equipped with everything you would need to make your stay enjoyable. The owner Jim was a joy to deal with.
Went for a girl's weekend and were so happy with everything, from the 3 bedrooms (2 with great views from the bed) and the three FULL bathrooms it was perfect. There was enough space to spread out and we each had our own space to retreat to.
Having coffee on the deck with the birds, views and bunnies was heaven, as was soaking in the hot tub in the peace and quiet. Huge kitchen with anything you would ever need to make a gourmet meal. But, the best part about this house is the view! There is a wall of windows that overlooks the water and mountains. We were there on a cloudy weekend and could not see Mt. Baker, but even without it it was gorgeous.
Very clean. Quiet. Garage to park in. Laundry. Beach access. Gas fireplace (that does have a noisy fan). Big screen TV downstairs and movies. Book library to borrow from. The hot tub was clean and easy to use, and close to the house so you did not freeze coming or going.
I will for sure be coming back!!!
From the front yard you can be beach combing, fishing, kayaking, picnicking, and exploring tidal pools. Take day trips to the charming Whidbey towns of Coupeville, Langley, Greenbank, or head to the famous San Juan Islands and the Olympic Peninsula rain forest. Head to Anacortes to arrange for a whale watching excursion. Or if you're coming in April/May look for whales feeding in the waters off the beach.
