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.

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.

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!

Truly wonderful house and owners

  • 5 of 5
This was an absolutey wonderful experience. The home is lovely just for 1 or for 101. There is so much living space and tons of sleeping space. The furnishing are so cozy and the beds are very, very comfy. The view is amazing even in the dead of winter. Walking on the beach was exhilarating. Watching the ocean from the master bedroom was calming and lead one to ultimate peace within. If I describe the house as wonderful, I must tell you the owners are even better. They were so kind. There was a mix up in the bank I used ( my mistake) so everything came back as not enough funds. Well, I was horrified and expected the owners to be frustrated as well. But understanding and kindness was their choice of how to handle this challenge. They believed me, gave me a second chance, and if I remember correctly, even a third chance ( how embarrassing) to get things straightened out. Keep in mind, this was Christmas, so they could have easily gone with a number of other renters. I love when kindness and understanding wins. It did in this case and my belief in the goodness of people was reinforced by their action. My daughter and her husband's family own a home just a short walk away so it was a perfect location for mom! If you are looking for a beautiful location and wonderful owners, stop looking. You have found both at West Beach House.

A Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many homes worldwide and found West Beach House to be one of the best. The property was extremely clean and in very good condition. The kitchen is well appointed with everything in excellent condition. The views of the beach and the sunset are to be remembered. There is little sand wihen the tide is in but with the tide out there is plenty of sandy area for children to play. There is a lovely firepit on the beach for camp fires and the owners provided all you would need to make gourmet smores. The home includes many amenities including WiFi, big screen TV, puzzles & games and binoculars for whale watching. The location is great. The house is about 10 minutes from good shopping and yet you do not feel like you are that close. You can walk down the beach to a state park and there is a wonderful marsh area across the street if you like to watch birds. We only hope that we can return there again. The pictures do not do the property justice.

Outstanding Home! Outstanding Service!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place for a weekend away. It took us only 90 minutes to reach the house, and when we did, what a pleasant surprise. Unassuming from the outside, the house is very well-appointed within. Our large family gathering were made quite comfortable, and we were so happy to find a place that welcomed our children. The views are impossible to beat, and we kept finding ourselves simply standing and staring out at the water. We sat on the deck constantly, and we even got to make a fire on the beach and make s'mores. The older kids were in heaven. Thus we had an incredible time. After we got home our eldest realized that she had left a very expensive item back at the house. I did not want to drive all the way back with kids, so I emailed the owners. They went out, hunted down the item, and mailed it back to us. Our heroes! We will absolutely go again.
