CENTRAL WHIDBEY ISLAND WATER AND MT VIEW HOME

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 it's 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 it's 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 is 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.

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

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!

  • 5 of 5
The house is so cute and clean! The owners, Sande and Peter, keep the kitchen well-stocked for those who like to cook while watching the deer eat apples and chase bunnies in the backyard (or one of the adjacent backyards). I was impressed that the bookshelves were stocked and I found quite a few really good books! The house is also very close to Ft. Casey State Park which has so much going on, you hardly know where to start. Going into the park you see the old gun battery with watchtowers and cannons, there is a lighthouse, a huge field for kites, and plenty of picnic tables. We spent the whole first day there and had a great time! On our way out we stopped at Double Bluff Beach, which was amazing and would only be about a 10 minute drive from the house. The beach is sandy but we found many seashells buried in it as well as in the low tide. The water on this particular beach does not get deep very fast or have very large waves, so you can wade out pretty far without worry. All in all, it was a great time. Thanks!

A Pleasurable two-week Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was a perfect home base for our exploration of the lovely little towns and sights of Whidbey Island, and jaunts off Island, through the San Juans, and onto Vancouver Island, BC. The house was immaculate, like new, and well appointed with a wonderful view and quiet location. Truly a cozy and comfortable home away from home. The owners were always available if needed and I would definitely recommend this charming vacation home to anyone.

Comfortable "Home away from home" in a great location

Comfortable "Home away from home" in a great location

We stayed here for a 2 night mini-vacation for our anniversary. It was immaculately clean, maybe the cleanest vacation rental I've ever seen. We could have been the first guests since it was remodeled with no visible wear & tear. The location is quiet but close to the all the sights on Whidbey Island. The layout of the house was well thought out. Both beds were comfortable, although I preferred the guest bed, since I'm not a big fan of memory foam. (Just a personal preference.) There was everything we could have wanted in the kitchen, unlike a few places we've stayed where you don't even get salt & pepper. Our hosts made it clear that we could contact them if we needed anything, but since they thought of it all in advance, we didn't need to. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: We're happy celebrating your anniversary in our home was an enjoyable experience. And truly appreciate your commentary on the cleanliness of our home and that there was nothing you needed.

As we've commented before to other guests, we wanted this place to be as close to a home as possible. Of course each individual has their own likes and dislikes - but we try to do the basics so that when our guests arrive they can relax for a bit before going shopping for those items of personal preference.

Last but certainly not least...We hope the birding was enjoyable and that you took home lots of good memories!

Can I live here forever?

  • 5 of 5
I took my 91 year old mother to stay in this house to celebrate her birthday. She walked from room to room and then stood in front of the window admiring the view and asked me, "Can I live here forever?" That was just the beginning of our love affair with this darling little house set in a beautiful location on this perfect island. I have just gone back and looked at the pictures and read all the comments and I can say "amen" to every one of them. The only thing lacking are the exclamation points describing this house, location, and view. One thing I will add is this is a birder's paradise, we saw 18 identified species in 4 days without binoculars in the local lakes, fields, and along the seashore. Just marvelous is all I can add. Sande and Peter was so helpful. We were here during a cold snap and they were so concerned we would be warm enough. The house was snug as can be and the deer in the back yard at dinner time everyday was such a blessing. We will be back next year to celebrate her 92nd birthday!

Owner's Response: We couldn't be more pleased that both you and your mom had such a wonderful stay in our home and on Whidbey!
The only up side to the unusually cold weather you experienced while here was the air was clear making the view spectacular. And that you were able to view so many different species of birds right by the house - that's one of the reasons we love living here.
We too look forward to your returning for your mom's 92nd birthday and hope you'll keep in mind you are welcome to come earlier too!

Well worth it!!

  • 5 of 5
My hubby and I originally booked a two night stay in this lovely little rental with our daughter in tow. Thanks to the grandparents, we were unexpectedly blessed with a two night get away. :) We arrived later than expected that day, so it was dark when we checked in. Lights were on, the fire place was going, and there was wine with cheese & crackers waiting in the fridge. It was very clean, well set up, and the bed was very comfortable. The owners of this property are wonderful too. They called to make sure we got in okay. They even came over to make sure the heat and some lights were on for when we arrived. The ONLY downside (which is just a personal preference) for us was there wasn't a TV in either of the bedrooms so we could snuggle & watch movies. Great place for a little R&R!!! Thanks for making our time so enjoyable Peter and Sande!!!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our home and thank you so much for the review!

We're happy to that you weren't upset with my calling to see if you got in safely. With the weather the way it was at the time of your stay, concern for your safe arrival was on my mind. Thinking about it after I called I thought - boy these folks must think I'm being nosy! Thank you for letting me know otherwise.

As to no TV's in the bedrooms - I too have thought about that. With the size of the rooms I thought "where could I put a flat screen like the one in the living room that could be easily viewable from the beds without those awful cords hanging everywhere?!!". The no TV in the bedrooms won out for the time being. I will keep thinking about it though and thank you for your bringing it up.

Please come by again when you are out our way - we offer discounts to returning guests!!!

We'll leave the lights on!

Fantastic Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at your vacation property, Sande and Peter. Thanks so much for the yummy treats to welcome us. We love every details of your house, including the beautiful flowers in the front, the colour coordination throughout the house, and the sight of wildlife looking out from the kitchen every morning and evening. Just wonder how you can keep the property so clean and charming... Will love to come and stay again!

Owner's Response: So few guests leave a review and to those that do, including you now we are grateful. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay in our home and thank you for the compliments on the ambiance!

As to the flowers...we've enjoyed a wonderful summer this year which has aided us in keeping the blooms longer. The seasons here are short it seems but each has something of interest to offer. Even the colder months of winter provide beautiful scenery and wildlife.

We look forward to your return any time and thank you not only for this review but for taking such good care of our home!
