We bought this house to use as a second home and found that we weren't using it as much as we thought we would. We then decided to share it with others. We had been coming to Whidbey Island for years on vacation before we decided to buy. We hope that you will enjoy our house as much as we do, and you may even find yourself coming back as we and many of our guests have.
The best things about this house are how quiet it is, how far from civilization you feel, how relaxed you are, how great the hottub and its views are, how easy it is to see all of the island from this central location, and how easy it is to get to Seattle from here.
Some of our favorite restaurants include The Oystercatcher in downtown Coupeville - a small local place that uses local ingredients only (oystercatcherwhidbey dot com), also Frasers Gourmet Hideaway in Oak Harbor - a slightly larger restaurant, with an excellent menu in the Northwest Style (frasersgh dot com), and Prima Bistro in Langley - a perfect bistro style French restaurant that rivals food in some of the very best French bistros from NYC to SF (primabistro dot com)
Love it, love it, love it -- If I had my way we would never leave. The house is perfect, the view spectacular. Close enough to town to make it easy - far enough away to enjoy the quiet.
Great place for ladies weekend. Beautiful view. Fireplace was awesome. Hot tub was great. Only problem was no dishwasher. Overall it was awesome!
Perfect home for hiking both Whidbey/Deception Pass and the Olympics. Annual guys trip was amazing due to Happy House hot tub and views- serene setting and quiet. It doesn't get more Pac NW than this place! Thank you, Shane, for being so accommodating and keeping such a perfect home for vacationers.
My boyfriend and I decided, last minute, to head out of town and have a nice little getaway. With the cold weather, having the hot tub was AWESOME! We felt so secluded and miles away from Seattle. It was so perfect sitting in the hot tub and overlooking a stunning view of the water and mountains. The house is really close to town so we could buzz in and grab groceries, but we mostly lounged around, watched TV, cooked and enjoyed the house. The kitchen has all the necessary tools, there's TONS of room, so we will likely be back with friends over the summer. They have really done a beautiful job with the place and we didn't want to leave. Shane also gave us the whole day Sunday since we got in so late on Friday, which was really nice. I'd absolutely recommend this for a couples getaway or, for friends and family looking for a place to getaway and enjoy an awesome deck and view! :)
We stayed at the Happy Houes over Labor Day weekend. The house was clean and cozy. The eating area and kitchen were spacious. But more than anything, it was the view from the hottub/back deck that makes this place special. A very peaceful setting surrounded by trees was the perfect getaway.
We really enjoyed our stay. It was very relaxing and the view was fabulous.
