About Nancy

Our Beach House was built by our parents in the 60's on our very favorite island beach. We enjoy the short drive to town a 3.8 mile drive into Oak Harbor, watching Whale, sea lions , otters, seals, eagles and deer. The rainfall is low on this area of the Island so there is plenty of sun. Enjoy the surf, the sand bar, good beach combing, play bocce ball on the sand.

Now we have completed a total renovation back to a beach cottage feel...if you enjoy Pottery Barn you'll LOVE our cozy cottage even while watching big surf winter storms.

Nancy purchased this house in 2008

Why Nancy chose Whidbey Island

We kept our family home because it's a gem... a place to put our toes in the sand. We are within walking distance to Joseph Whidbey State Park and within a short drive to 3 others state parks where you can walk, bike, picnic or swim. We have good seafood sources nearby as well. The sunsets are THE BEST which is why we locals have always called it Sunset Beach~

What makes this house unique

The highlight of the vacation home is RELAXATION on the sunny shore. There is wonderful driftwood, seashells and amazing stones on the beach. Plenty of marine life to see including whale, seals @ low tide such as sea urchins sea stars and crabs. There are times you can sit on the deck while whale put on a show right in front of you.....ahh

Relaxing Stay at Sunset Shore House

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach house. The home was so comfortable, the view so nice, we reluctantly went sightseeing only one day. It is well appointed and clean with the beach just steps away. The beds were very comfortable. Nancy was very responsive and helpful with our inquiries. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet get away this is the place. All you need is located in this beautiful beach house. The view of the beach is so close once you step out on the back porch.

Plenty of room for a family 6 or 8. Eat breakfast or have your coffee over looking the water. This place is also very clean and well taken care of.

I look forward to staying again.

Your beachfront cottage was wonderful, comfortable, CLEAN, delightful. We loved your charming decor. The views are outstanding, sitting on the deck sipping our coffee made us never want to leave. Thank you for such a pleasant home away from home.

Way beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted to spend a few days at your wonderful CLEAN beachfront cottage! It's so nice to stay at a place that is so perfectly decorated and well appointed. The comfort level is through the roof. We spent wonderful well lit mornings at the kitchen table having breakfast with that fabulous waterfront view. After seeing the sights during the day, we returned to the cozy living room with gas stove and had our wine and h'orderves. Really enjoyed all the cute dishes and just being so comfortable. The beds and linens are very nice. Grandma loved it too and it was very easy for her to get around. Don't change a thing. We'd love to come back.

Beautiful place for a fall weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent my birthday weekend at Sunset cottage with close friends. The house is bright, light, airy, cozy and comfortable with sweeping views of the Sound (and yes, at dusk, sunsets). It's also excellently appointed with anything you might need for a beach adventure indoors or out (fully equipped kitchen, games, puzzles, movies, beach towels, binoculars, picnic supplies, plenty of outdoor furniture for the wraparound decks and front garden.) Speaking of the front garden, just walking past its fragrant plantings and into the welcoming foyer, we could feel our cares slipping away. Walks on the beach, explored nearby towns and restaurants, hung out on the deck. We never wanted to leave. Thank you!
