Oak Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Plan your next summer vacation and enjoy the serenity of your own private beach or explore the changing fall landscapes or even cuddle up to a roaring fire during those exciting winter storms...West Beach House is truly a year round getaway!

West Beach House is located on Whidbey Island just 4 miles northwest of Oak Harbor and offers plenty of outdoor activities and attractions for all age groups including seasonal events (i.e. tulip, lavender, jazz, kite, berry and mussel festivals), outdoor farmers and holiday markets, wineries, and art galleries.

Whidbey Island is one of nine islands located in Island County, Washington State, U.S.A. and is located about 90 miles north of Seattle. This beautiful island forms the northern boundary of Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains and features some of the most beautiful state parks with miles of hiking trails, beaches and hidden coves in the Pacific Northwest.

Traveling to West Beach House is easy! Either by car and/or ferry (driving is recommended during peak season). A 2 hour scenic drive from downtown Seattle, or 40 minutes drive from the Clinton Ferry located at the south end of Whidbey Island. The Washington State ferry system located in Anacortes sails to San Juan islands, Victoria Canada, or Vancouver Canada. So many options!!!!

About Chuck & Karen

Chuck and Karen have lived in Seattle, Washington for over 20 years. We love Washington, our new beach house, and the San Juan Islands. We bought the house to enjoy with our family and friends and to escape the daily demands of the city. We walk on the beach to the State Park that is less than 1/2 mile away, catch our own Crab and just hang out in doors with a warm fire. We share the house with our friends and family, and now with you, and yours!

We realized that we were working too hard and wanted to slow down and enjoy life. We looked for over a year before buying our West Beach House. It has been one of the best decisions we've ever made have no regrets.

Why Chuck & Karen chose Oak Harbor

The beach and house are spectacular and we loved its proximity to Coupeville, Deception Pass, and Ebey's Landing.

What makes this house unique

From East to West, the House is nestled between the Pacific ocean and a natural wetlands preserve with plenty of eagles, beautiful birds, and otters. From North to South is the Olympic Peninsula and the gateway to Canada.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing beach house! Six of us got away for a girls getaway and this house was perfect. Other than a beach walk, we didn't leave the house all weekend! We didn't want to escape the comfort and view. We couldn't believe how quiet the house was either. The ones who chose to sleep in were not disturbed at all by the ones up early making breakfast downstairs.

Karen, the owner and Wally, the caretaker were fantastic to work with.

We can't wait to come back!

Great family retreat house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this fabulous west beach house! The weather was great, the water was right in front of the house, and it was close to a lot of parks for our family to explore. We had a teen, two tweens and four year old along with a grandparent and us! Took walks on the beach, relaxed watching movies and listening to music. Eagles flew over and a seal was seen bobbing its head! Took a trips into Coupeville, Langley, and a ferry to Port Townsend for the day. On our way home visited Anacortes. House was clean and all ready for us upon arrival. Would definitely return if in the area again. Thank you.

The views! The space! The accomodations!

  • 4 of 5

We used the West Beach House as a home base during a trail run weekend at Deception Pass. The lead up to the stay and the stay itself were wonderful. The owners were so helpful with all of our questions before our arrival. Then we got there! Wow. I agree with other reviews that the pictures do not do the house justice. Our group had a blast just looking out the windows, walking up and down the beach, and even taking a December dip after our long run (well, okay, one of us did)! We also enjoyed cooking and eating at the high table in the kitchen and there was enough seating for a more "sit-down" dinner in the dining/living area. Even after the stay, I had some VERY minor feedback about the house (a slow drain, clothes dryer shutting off too soon) and the owners were receptive, thankful and promised immediate attention so that the next set of guests could have a great stay.

Whidbey is a great destination. There is so much to see just driving and exploring the island from North to South. I will definitely be back and if possible, will use West Beach House again.

Beautiful, relaxing...and truly timeless

  • 5 of 5

The pictures for this home absolutely do not do it justice. From the moment my fiance and I walked in the front door and saw the ocean literally lapping at the back deck, we were mesmerized. Located in a peaceful and serene part of the island that's only minutes from shopping and restaurants. It's isolated enough to relax yet close enough to anything you could possibly need. We had the most romantic weekend ever celebrating my fiance's birthday with walks on the perfect sandy beach, amazing sunsets, to sitting fireside enjoying a glass of wine, talking and laughing. The home is beautifully restored with current amenities that truly makes you feel at home. Nearby towns offer excellent dining and shopping as well.

We will absolutely be back again next year! Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful home with us. You've helped us to create a memory that will truly last a lifetime and bring many smiles for years to come.

Great Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second summer spending time on Whidbey Island and this year was by far the best of the two. The house is beautiful and conveniently setup. We had 8 adults, 1 child, 1 four month infant and a dog on the first weekend. The owners cautioned us that while they post the house as accommodating 10 people, that it may be a bit too crowded. Let me assure you that it was not too crowded at all. There is plenty of space and plenty of seating for everyone, even if all are inside due to poor weather. If the weather is good, the deck as well as being right on the shore gives you that much more room to spread out. The 3 main bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. The 4th bedroom is great for the kids. The house is truly conveniently located close to Oak harbor, Coupeville, Deception Pass, a couple of golf courses and numerous nature trails. It really is as great if not better than the description and pictures provided. The views of the sound to the west, especially at sunset are spectacular. The Bald Eagle will be around every day to keep you company. The sound of the waves night and day will definitely sooth your cares away. Karen and Chuck, the owners are very conscientious and want you to enjoy their beach house and local area. They are very good at responding to your questions and concerns. The stay was well worth our drive out from Wisconsin. We'd definitely recommend this property to our best of friends.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property to spend a weekend with my siblings, my elderly parents, and my retired aunt and uncle (all from out of town). It was the perfect way to introduce them to Washington and the PNW!

The house is right on the beach, with beautiful view of the Puget Sound and the Cascades. There is also a lake on the other side of the house surrounded by a green and spacious land. The walk on the semi- private beach was amazing!! Sitting outside and enjoying the quietness and hearing nothing but the waves was so relaxing.

The house was fully stocked and very clean, with a grill outside. Cable and internet working just fine, so was the fire place (you need to bring your own wood though). The house is very close to downtown Oak Harbor, as well as site setting spots like Depiction Pass. The owners Karen and Chuck, along with their friend Missy, were super kind and helpful throughout. This has been amazing experience, and a priceless memory for our family, which I thank you dearly for!
