Overview

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. 2-night minimum for non-holiday fall-winter-spring stays.

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!

Amazing beach cabin right on the water!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time renting this charming little beach cabin and every year gets better! It is right on the water with a large fire pit and this area cools down at night in the summer. Great location as close to many fun activities. Lots to do for families or group of friends. We will be back next year!

Great view, steps away from the beach, cool fire pit nice neighbors

  • 4 of 5

Was a nice relaxing getaway, great to be so close to the water. Met many friendly neighbors. The kids loved playing in the the loft area. I have a baby that's just beginning to walk so all the steps up and down on the main floor was a little stressful. The weather was overcast and moderate when we were there. It was already a bit warm inside the house. Can't imagine how it's like in the summer. There's only one ceiling fan. There are many operable windows but not a whole lot of breeze.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Sounds like you must have hit our beach on an unusually warm and calm Northwest "Indian summer" weekend! There are additional fans in the bedroom closets for those rare times when it gets that warm.

A fun getaway.

  • 4 of 5

My family spent 4 days enjoying the little house on the sound. It had a great beach and beautiful views. Sleeps 6 comfortably. It was very clean and well stocked with plates and pots and pans, etc. The walk from the car to the house was a little long, but we got great exercise.

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!
