'HARBOR VIEW GRAND'—GRAND VIEW, HOME, AND CONCERT GRAND PIANO.

Oak Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

With over 3000 square feet on three levels, The “Harbor View Grand” lives up to its name both literally and figuratively. The concert grand piano, the sauna, and the huge NEW 480 gallon Jacuzzi brand hot tub are just part of what make it so enjoyable. This spacious architect-designed residence was custom built to maximize the incredible 180 degree panoramic view from this property. And does it ever!

The entire east side of the main level is primarily a wall of windows. From the kitchen, dining room, and living room you can enjoy an unobstructed view that spans from Mt. Baker to Mr. Rainer. You will see the Cascade mountains, the city of Oak Harbor, the harbor itself, a good portion of Puget Sound, Saratoga Passage, and Penn Cove. Maylor’s Point, Camano Island, and much of South Whidbey Island are also on display. At night, the view is just as stellar. The city of Oak Harbor and all the neighboring territory from Camano Island to south Whidbey put on a sparkling light show for free, to say nothing of the moon as it appears in the sky and glimmers across the water. With such a magnificent unobstructed view of the water, mountains, city, and neighboring territory, the view here is grand—day and night!

While you will never tire of the view, you will want to enjoy the rest of our home. Hungry? On the main level is a gourmet kitchen full of dishes, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and newer appliances. There is a convection oven, smooth top stove, large side by side refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, and a quiet-as-can-be dishwasher. A comfortable breakfast bar seats 2-3 people should anybody just want to sit and have a quick bite.

The nearby living room has a huge, vaulted open beam ceiling with exposed tongue and groove wood that serves the 7’ Baldwin concert grand piano extremely well. (What a great room for music!) We are the original owners of this incredibly powerful yet delicately nuanced instrument and have kept it tuned, regulated, and maintained religiously. This piano is worthy of the best pianists among us. Can’t play the piano? There is an outstanding stereo system that highlights a classic audiophile set of M&K speakers with matching subwoofer that sound incredible!

The lower level has a large family/TV room complete with a wet bar, small fridge, pellet stove, and 47” cable TV which is hooked into another great stereo system. Lots of CDs and DVD’s are also available. This room has a newer sleeper sofa. The lower level also has a 4 person Nordic cedar sauna which can be operated wet (steam) or dry.

Outside on the covered patio is a huge 480 gallon J-375 Jacuzzi hot tub that accommodates 6 people, including one in a full chase-type lounge seat. This deluxe model has a built in radio and many lighting options, a waterfall, and comfortable built in head-rests, and easy opening cover lift that one person can open and close in a jiffy. Talk about relaxing, the 46 jets can be adjusted to just the perfect strength to provide a rejuvenating, relaxing, and pro-quality massage. Jacuzzi engineers even made sure to include jets for a foot massage! We leave the Jacuzzi in operation all 365 days of the year, but no matter when you use it, when you are done you will come out relaxed~

The top level contains the master bedroom/bathroom and the “peak” bedroom. The master bedroom has a king Tempurpedic bed and high vaulted ceiling with a bank of floor to ceiling windows that provide a great view to the north that includes Mt. Baker. The master bath has both a shower and a jetted tub. The peak bedroom with its large vaulted ceiling looks out over the world from the highest point in our home. This room has two beds and is the favorite bedroom for anyone who likes to climb a ladder. Across from the single bed near the base of another bank of windows is a ladder that leads to the loft. Here you will find a cozy and comfortable double mattress bed on the carpet. This bed is the clear choice of younger family members, although a younger couple will find it as romantic as can be! The city lights are in full view when looking out the windows while tucked in bed.

In addition to the gourmet kitchen, elegant living room, and a dining area which has six leather chairs and large travertine dining table, the main level has two well appointed bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a double bed. Both of these rooms have their own flat screen TV’s and DVD players. The laundry room and full bath complete with double sinks are located on this level. There are also extra folding tables that can be set up if 10 or 11 people want to dine at once. (We would put a folding table at the end of the travertine table and could seat 10 comfortably all at once. You can seat 11 but you might need to set up one or both of the folding tables separate from the dining table, or a couple of people can eat in the kitchen.)

Outside the main level on the east side of the house is a large deck with 8 chairs. At the end of the deck is a large round table for six and area suitable for dining should the weather be warm. The view from the deck is truly magnificent and eating in the open air makes the food taste just a little better.

No matter the time of year, the Harbor View Grand is an exceptional place to stay. There are no curtains, just windows galore which makes this home bright and airy no matter the weather outside. A good storm is an event not to be missed when looking out our main windows, the high vaulted ceilings allow you to hear the soothing sound of the rain as it pitterpats away on the roof.

The Harbor View Grand is centrally located high atop a hill in Oak Harbor just minutes from restaurants, shopping, public beaches, a wonderful public indoor swimming pool, Deception Pass State Park, and Deception Pass Bridge. Just 12 minutes from the Harbor View Grand, the Deception Pass park and bridge are scenic beyond words (its the most visited state park in Washington State) and a person can spend hours walk the beach and the wooded trails along the ocean. Five minutes away is NAS Whidbey Island. From our home you can drive to the San Juan Islands ferry in 35 minutes and to the Olympic Peninsula ferry in just 20 minutes. When based at the Harbor View Grand, you can explore all of Whidbey Island—its many parks, beaches, shopping, and dining—and never be more than an hour away. It makes a great central base for exploring the San Juan Islands, the Olympic Penninsula, and the mainland from Seattle to Vancouver, British Columbia which is only 2 hour drive.

The Harbor View Grand makes for a great getaway for a family, a wonderful rendezvous location for a group of friends, or a restful planning retreat for business or religious groups. If you do not know it already, we love this home and are confident you will, too.

Why The Owner chose Oak Harbor

We bought this house 15 years ago as our dream house, and so it continues today. We have updated, remodeled, and maintained it every step of the way. Furthermore, our caretakers are meticulous with their cleaning. The home is not just beautiful, it is clean top to bottom.

What makes this house unique

The view literally is mesmerizing. My wife and I would often sit at the dining table for hours after dinner just looking out the windows and visiting. We watch everything from sailboats coming into the harbor to jets flying by high in the sky. Because the Harbor View Grand is located in the city limits, it is centrally located to much of what Whidbey Island and is all about. Because it is set high on a hill and is on a nearly half-acre lot with many mature fir trees, the Harbor View Grand has a rural park-like setting and feel.

small group retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Harbor View Grand was such a wonderful enjoyable experience (everyone of us in our group of 11 commented how well equipped with kitchen supply, including rice cooker!! though we did bring our own; everything was so generouslly provided (including the grand piano!! - we enjoyed singing hymns during our fellowship retreat), sauna and hot tub, and the house was spacious and clean with beautiful view!! We wish we could have a longer stay and we definitely would recommend to friends for family reunion and /or small group retreats. Thank you Jeff again for letting us enjoy your beautiful home!!

perfect family reunion spot

  • 5 of 5
It's a beautiful home with a beautiful view and I couldn't have been more impressed with how stocked and user ready the kitchen was. The master bedroom was gorgeous and is the gem of the house (besides the view). The other bedrooms were pretty OK. We were a group of 10 and it was a stretch to say it could sleep us all; the fold out sofa bed downstairs is not really up to an adult sleeping on it. We had a lovely family reunion here and certainly recommend it strongly!

Owner's Response: The beds will only sleep 11 if there are 5 couples sharing the 5 larger beds (including the sleeper sofa). There is only one single bed in the house. The queen sleeper sofa is, respectfully, still a sleeper sofa. While they can work well in certain situations, they are never as big or comfortable as an actual queen bed. We do provide extra blankets and two nice floor "mattresses" that unfold and can be used on the floor if one or two people need their own place to sleep.

Three grateful families

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, once again, for generously providing your house for vacationing families like ours. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was a perfect fit for our group of 10. The view was beautiful! We took advantage of the numerous amenities offered, ate family meals on the deck, and played the piano every day. The house was a great location as our vacation included day trips to Olympic National Park, Seattle, San Juan Islands and Deception Pass parks. In addition, the owner was extremely helpful, informative and responsive.

awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5
We were 7 adults and three kids in this wonderful home. we could accommodate 4 more adults easily with a couple of extra air beds. All rooms were maintained well with adequate storage. Although we didnt use the hot tub, one of did use the sauna and he said it was perfect. Everything else was as pictured, the kitchen and pantry were beyond expectations. It was truly a chefs paradise and we got some good use out of grill. The owner was very easy to deal with and very accommodating. so overall the stay was very very good and i got a thumps up from the rest of the gang for find such a lovely place. We would come here if we are ever back in whidbey. and btw the view is great too..

Perfect Retreat: a runners paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our weekend was fantastic, thank you so much!! What a beautiful home you have! We had a wonderful time and were awestruck by the views and amenities. We felt truly lucky to have the chance to stay in such a lovely place. We have and will continue to recommend Whidbey Island and your home to everyone we know as a fantastic vacation.

We were a group of 7 runners on Whidbey Island for the Marathon and Half Marathon and could not have asked for a more perfect location. Less than a mile to the start/finish and walking/jogging distance to groceries, coffee, and Flyers Brewpub - everything about the house was ideal for our weekend. Including post-race soaking in the hottub, as well as a fully outfitted kitchen to make pre and post-race feasts. Everyone had a quiet, comfortable room to sleep in. We could not have enjoyed the weekend more.
