About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Your family will LOVE spending vacations in this charming and idyllic Tony Callison designed waterfront cottage at Possession Beach with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 50 feet of 'no-bank' waterfront!

Or, you and your sweetheart can snuggle up by the fire for a long, cozy winter weekend watching the water and the weather outside the BIG windows that nearly bring the outside indoors!

Wake up to stunning sunrises, soaring eagles, water & mountain vistas in this 3 bedroom/2 bath classic charmer with 50 feet of no bank waterfront. This rare beachfront cottage is the perfect summer or winter retreat. No road noise or traffic. Go boating, swimming, clamming, crabbing, or fishing right from the yard, or watch whales, deer & eagles (or winter storms) while staying cozy inside by the fire! Boat launch nearby. Very easy access (minutes) to Clinton-Mukilteo ferry landing. Vaulted ceilings, skylights, multiple decks, outdoor fire-pit, charcoal BBQ grill, games, movies, puzzles.

Sleeps 6-7 in beds, up to 10 with futon and air beds. Best for families or close friend groups of up to 4 adults + kids. The master bedroom/bathroom suite is upstairs in a beautiful loft with a pony wall that is open to the downstairs living area.

The house is located about 150 meters from the parking lot, along a paved path. There is a wagon at the house to use for moving your belongings between the parking lot and the house.

Due to the remote location of the house and lack of door-to-dump garbage service, it is necessary that you bag and remove your own garbage.

This property does not provide internet service, so bring your smart phones and tablets! Please read the list of amenities so that you know what is and is not included, and can plan and pack accordingly.

See rates section for seasonal rates. Nightly rate ranges from $175 to $350.

(Additional $20/person/night charge for each person over the first 6 guests.)

Cleaning fee ($140). No smoking residence.

If last minute dates are available (1 or 2 days out, especially during the slow season), chances are good that I'll be willing to negotiate the nightly rate.

4 night minimum stay during July and August; 3-4 night minimum stay for major holidays.

For security on both sides, please pay through VRBO.

About Leslie

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, near Whidbey Island, and I come home every chance I get.

Leslie purchased this house in 2004

Why Leslie chose Whidbey Island

Possession Beach at Whidbey Island is the perfect vacation spot! I consider it my home away from home. Waterfront home on a tranquil part of Puget Sound with views of the snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance. Spot whales, porpoise, seals, deer and eagles right from the house! It just doesn't get any better than this!

What makes this house unique

Very peaceful setting on the water, snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance, watch the whales swim by and the eagles soar overhead; crabbing, fishing, clamming, kayaking... If you want to 'get away from it all' it just doesn't get any better than this!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The kids loved the place. It was our first time visiting Whidbey Island and it couldn’t have been better. The weather was nice and warm for spring. Kelly walked for hours up and down the shore collecting sea shells. The highlight of the trip was spotting 3 Bald Eagles flying alongside our car, they were so close it was just incredible! Your beach house was terrific.

Thanks so much!

Great Stormy Week Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. First of all Leslie was very easy to work with and quick to respond to inquiries. The home is just the right mix of beach cottage and traditional home. We stayed during a stormy week and the house is so well built you could barely tell there was 50mph gusts and rain outside. Was a good size for 5 friends to be inside but not crowded. Great value, would stay again!

Wonderful beach stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! Charming house right on the beach with great fire pit, perfect accommodations, and very quiet neighborhood. We have stayed here before and just love it. Saw bald eagles, paddle boarded and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Would recommend it to any age group!

Super cute

  • 4 of 5

This home was very charming and had everything you could want. The location was quiet and peaceful. The only thing that was a little odd is that there isn't a wall for the loft bathroom... Other than that it was a perfect house for us and large enough to comfortably move around with a larger group of people. I would definitely go back 😊

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had eight people staying together and we fit very comfortably in the house. The location is amazing. Beautiful views, a nice fire pit for the evenings, and a good sized porch for hanging out. Easy access from the ferry and a short drive to the farmer's market to stock up. The community on this beach is very friendly.

The master in the loft definitely gets lots of sun in the morning but its a great option for kids who are already up with the sun anyway. :)

Whidbey hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home on Possession Beach is a perfect spot to get away and relax--beautiful sunrises and gorgeous views. Falling asleep to the gentle sounds of waves ensures a good night's rest!The house is well appointed and comfortable. We were blessed with mostly sunny days during our stay, but there was plenty to do when we had a rainy day. It was easy to find things in the kitchen thanks to the unobtrusive labels! Getting to Langley and beyond was easy. I look forward to going back soon!

The best place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is SUCH a great place! Perfect spot on the water, and the home itself is lovely and has all the amenities you could ask for. This is easily the most 'place' for your money, the biggest bang for your vacation buck. I really love this property. It also has what I can only call a great 'vibe' from all the happy campers who have stayed here. Highly recommended.
