Greenbank House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy a spectacular view of the Saratoga Passage, Camano Island and the Cascade Mountains from the deck and every room in this cozy, light-filled two-bedroom getaway. The airy house, pleasantly appointed with comfortable furnishings and attractive decorations, sleeps six and is like two getaways in one. Each of the two floors has a bedroom with queen bed, a spacious living area, dining table and chairs, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom with tub and shower. The lower floor has a very comfortable futon couch that reclines to become a third queen-sized bed. The spacious deck off the upper level offers an outdoor dining area with table, chairs and a gas barbeque grill It's a great place to watch an array of birds, including bald eagles, which often perch in nearby trees. There are microwaves on both floors, a range upstairs and a stove with oven downstairs, an AM/FM radio-iPod-CD player, wireless broadband internet connection, a TV with DVD player, a collection of DVDs, CDs, books and board games. For outdoor relaxation, you'll find Adirondack chairs and a croquet set for the large back lawn. A lovely community beach, just a few minutes' drive away, is at your disposal for beachcombing, boating or kayaking. Located minutes from Greenbank Farm, which has shops, a cafe and a gallery, this peaceful Whidbey Island haven is also a short drive from South Whidbey, Fort Eby and Fort Casey State Parks, as well as from restaurants and shops in Coupeville to the north and Freeland and Langley to the south.

We're husband and wife, living and working in Seattle. We love that Whidbey Island is so close to the city yet feels like another world entirely. The pace is slower, the ambiance more tranquil. It's where we come to rest, be happy and 'get away from it all.'

Karen Jaeger purchased this house in 2011

We'd been coming to Whidbey Island for years, always enjoying its scenery, activities and relaxed lifestyle. We had had talked about acquiring an island getaway of our own, and when we found Greenbank Getaway, we knew it was perfect for us. We think it will be for you, too.

A light-filled house with everything you need for an enjoyable vacation. Cook and eat meals on the deck. Watch eagles soaring overhead and deer wandering by on the large lawn. Above all, take in the stunning view of Saratoga Passage and the Cascades. The location places you close to everything Whidbey Island offers. It's a great place to relax and enjoy life.

Beautiful Weekend Getaway

  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
I rented this property for my family's first visit to Whidbey Island. The home was clean, cozy and comfortable. The full kitchen and living spaces on both levels was a big plus. Karen, of Tara Vacation Rentals, was very professional and knowledgeable of the property and more than helpful throughout the entire rental process. Would recommend the property to anyone looking to spend a vacation on the island.

Quaint and comfortable

  • Submitted: Aug 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Stayed 7 days in August, 2013
The view was the best feature, along with the fact that there were 2 living areas with their own kitchen and bath. Everything worked and the house was clean and in good repair. The only downside was that there was no dishwasher, and my husband and daughter aren't big on helping in that department lol - so if there were more than 3 of us staying it could have been an issue. Otherwise, we had peace, quiet and privacy. The only visitors we had were some playful deer and a family of quail who came by in the evenings as we had our coffee on the deck. Would definitely stay again.

Great Time Spent

We had a wonderful time relaxing on the deck enjoying the amazing view of the Sound and watching the boats go by. Fort Casey is a close drive and a nice place to take a walk and to see the other side of the island.
There are some farms within walking distance that are certainly a must to visit. You can get fresh produce for your dinner and an Alpaca scarf to take home.
Everything was clean, well kept and comfortable. We had a great time.

Map

Central Whidbey Island offers a wide array of recreational activities. Three state parks -- South Whidbey State Park, Fort Casey State Park and Fort Ebey State Park -- offer beach access for swimming, picnicking or walking along the shore, as well as easy hiking on the bluffs overlooking the water. In addition, Fort Casey features a historic lighthouse as well as WW II-era gun batteries, and is a popular spot for kite flying. All three parks offer spectacular sunsets, with views of Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains.

The calm waters around Whidbey Island are ideal for kayaking. You can take your own kayak to the community beach, located a few minutes from the house, or rent one or book a guided tour in nearby Langley. Other nearby water activities include fishing, clamming, sailing and whale-watching aboard chartered boats.

For golfers, the Holmes Harbor Golf Club has an 18-hole course and is open to the public. Island Greens has 9 holes of par 3 and was cited by the Seattle TImes as one of the area's best par-3 courses.

Whidbey Island's mostly flat terrain is great for cycling, and there are bicycle paths or lanes throughout the island. Those inclined to beach-combing and bird-watching will find plenty to occupy them. In fact, the deck of the house is a great place to watch for bald eagles, which frequently soar by and often perch in nearby trees. At Merkeek Gardens, located 5 minutes from the house, you can walk among 12 acres of rhododendrons and azaleas from around the world.

Two historic towns, Coupeville and Langley, feature fine restaurants, shops and small museums devoted to local history. Both towns are treasure troves for antiques lovers, and the cinema in Langley shows first-run movies. The nearby town of Freeland provides more dining options as well as a large supermarket and a health center offering day passes.

Greenbank Farm, located just a mile and a half from the house, has a terrific little cafe, along with a gallery, community gardens and walking trails. The ridge above the farm offers views of both the Cascade and Olympic mountains. The Greenbank General Store sells groceries and sandwiches.
