Coupeville House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

This home is perfect for week-long family vacations, romantic weekend getaways, writers retreat, house-hunting visits, and temporary lodging for relocated executives.

On a clear day the views of the water and mountains are spectacular!

Be sure to have a camera ready to capture sea stars (star fish) ranging in color from orange to purple in the water at the wharf in Coupeville, and the bald eagles and herons to name only two bird species that live here.

Immaculate 2 bedroom 1 bath home located on Whidbey Island boasts a fantastic view of Crockett Lake, the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.

1 1/2 mile to State Park beach at Admiralty Inlet and 2 miles to Fort Casey Park where you can visit the light house and explore the many acres of trails and park on foot or bike. Come see the kite festival in September, Race week in August and some type of art festival or other entertainment year round.

The Keystone-Coupeville Ferry is located here and will take you to Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula. Miles of beaches to walk, run and play on right here and all up and down Whidbey.

For those that scuba dive, this vacation home is 2 miles from a world famous dive park. The giant octopus lives here as well as many other beautiful sea creatures!

Explore the island with all its riches, from expansive views of farmland on the prairie in the historic Ebey's Landing to the bluffs overlooking the glistening Puget Sound waters.

Whidbey has become home to many writers and artists and Coupeville, the second oldest town in Washington State, has much to offer with its waterfront restaurants, shops and farmers market open between April and October. These are only a few of the attractions you will find here. Located in the 'rain shadow' of the Olympic and North Cascades we measure one of the lowest rainfall amounts in Western Washington.

Check out the video of the view from the closest beach in December, one of the colder months. Even then the vistas are beautiful. But don't forget to bring your windbreakers, it can get windy, it is an island after all!

There is always something going on, whether it be local art festivals or studio tours, or live theater in Oak Harbor and Langley, Whidbey Island is a great place to spend a vacation.

Plan your trip around any number of the many activities available, or just come here to enjoy a relaxing getaway.

Famous Deception Pass is a short 1/2 hour ride to the northern tip of Whidbey. This State Park offers beautiful vistas, great hiking and beautiful beaches the whole family can enjoy.

Seattle, located 40 miles to the south and easily reachable by the Mukilteo Ferry in Clinton at the south end of Whidbey, a days outing to the city is just an hour away.

Owners of this vacation rental live just around the corner and will be available if needed.

Stroll the beach 1 and 1/2 mile from this home and see the bald eagles, great blue herons, snow geese and wide array of others birds and wildlife. Deer and rabbits frequent this homes 1/2 acre yard.

If it's a vacation filled with being out in nature or you are looking for a writers retreat, this vacation home on Whidbey Island is perfectly situated.

About Owner

My husband and I fell in love with Whidbey We love the life style and pace that island living affords us.

Whenever we can, we walk on the beach a mile and a half from our home, and never grow tired of the wildlife and beautiful views of the Sound, the Mountains and prairies near our home.

Owner purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

The view from this home is incredible - even better than the one from our own home. We put a lot of work into making this vacation home everything we would want in a place we chose to stay. We hope you find it that way too.

We are only a half mile away and make ourselves available to our guests if they need us.

Perfect Beach View House to explore Whidbey Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this cozy, comfortable, clean home that has a beautiful view of the Puget Sound. And once again we thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, with the toasty gas fireplace and new bed mattress in the master bed room! Sandy and Peter are very hospitable with welcome appetizers and wine, complimentary ground coffee, and instructions to contact them with any needs (they live close by). This is a great base camp to explore Ebey Landing beach and bluff hiking, Fort Ebey State Park hiking, and Fort Casey mountain biking, all of which we did! So much fun and gorgeous scenery everywhere. Then come back to the house for some well-deserved R & R :) It's a short drive to downtown Coupeville for unique shopping and plenty of nice dining opportunities. We will love to return!

Perhaps one suggestion would be to have a sun umbrella or awning on the front patio that could be put away when the wind kicks up.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you took the time to leave us this wonderful review. We're happy too, you enjoyed our home and your visit to the beautiful island named Whidbey. There are so many things to do here and a great deal to see. To hear our guests have had a taste of all of it, is quite rewarding. We look forward to your returning and hope you will consider our home for that occasion.

Thank You!!

We stayed at Sande and Peter's lovely cottage last month, and I have been meaning to write a review recommending them ever since. Sande promptly got back to my questions while we were in the process of booking. The cottage itself was exceptionally clean and very cozy and comfortable. She also provided thoughtful extras- like the bottle of red wine and snacks we enjoyed on our first night. The house was well appointed with all the little things you need when you are away from home. While we were there, I loved being so close to Ebey's Landing and the town of Coupeville. Both were a short drive away. Sande is also very kind. I left something at their cottage and she mailed it back to me- which was so thoughtful. We would definitely come back and rent their property again. Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: What a sweet and thoughtful review - we thank you. Hearing that our home fit your vacation needs pleases us greatly. Whidbey is a beautiful island knowing others enjoy it as much as we do makes us happy. We too, look forward to your returning - and not to be pushy...wonder what wonderful desert treat you might whip up while staying next time!

Loved Our Stay!

My wife and I and my Brother and Sister-in-law spent a lovely weekend (even in the rain) at the Mt View Home. It was charming and comfortable in every way. The property was very, very clean when we arrived. There was a complementary cheese platter and bottle of wine for our enjoyment.

We enjoyed sleeping in and getting up when we wanted. We cooked breakfast in the fully outfitted kitchen then went our merry way to explorer the Island. We felt like we were coming back "home" each evening.

This is a lovely vacation home and I would recommend it to anybody.

Thank you for your time in writing this review, it helps us in so many ways.We look forward to your return and want to especially thank you for taking such good care of our home.

Home away from home.

Beautiful, fully equipped home. So clean and well maintained, with a lovely view across the lake to the Olympics. With the rainy weekend, we really enjoyed relaxing in front of the gas stove, reading and visiting.

My brother-in-law is already anxious to come back for a longer stay.

Thank you!

Owner's Response: You have no idea how beyond happy I was to enter our home after your stay. We never know what to expect when a guest leaves - but your departure left us with pure joy -( that surely sounds odd, I'm sure.) The fact is, your entire group left our home in such good condition, and so clean - it actually smelled GOOD!!! Thank you for this kind review- but even more, for your respect and consideration towards our home. Come back soon!!!

A gem on Whidbey Island

  • 5 of 5

I was a little nervous choosing a vacation rental on the Internet, but we were making last minutes reservations. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely cottage. The hosts, Sande and Peter, are warm and welcoming. They contacted us before our arrival and were easy to reach throughout the stay. The cottage was impeccably clean and well appointed. Sande wrote us not to bring extras and, indeed we found many supplies in the bathroom and in the kitchen including good quality staples. Great coffee, by the way! A delicious tray of snacks was left in the refrigerator for us. We enjoyed the snacks with a bottle of red wine that the hosts graciously provided. I was happy to find an excellent Wi-Fi connection because I had to work on a project during our vacation.

We found maps of hiking trails and general information. The hosts left clear instructions on how to settle down and check out.

It was easy from the cottage to explore beaches and go bird watching. We took lots of pictures at Fort Casey and Ebey Landing.

We plan on visiting again in spring when the rhododendrons bloom.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. We know it can be inundating finding a vacation rental on-line and are glad you found ours. The company you went through is quite reputable - we use them ourselves when we vacation as they are wonderful to both owners and guests. Your coming back in the spring is a great idea. As you're aware, spring on Whidbey is breathtaking. If you plan it just right you'll be able to see the new fawns and baby bunnies in the yard too. You were very gracious guests and kept our home in great condition. We look forward to your return any time of year.

Owner's Response: We're always happy to hear our guests enjoyed their visit to Whidbey. Knowing you live in Mexico where the climate is much warmer we were also glad to hear the propane fireplace was a hit. You're more than welcome to come back and hope you and the children will be able to enjoy some of our warm weather too!
