One of the most spectacular settings on Puget Sound, Whidbey Beachfront is a gorgeous beachfront home located on a 1 1/2 acre sandy beach property. Completed renovated over the past few years, this beautiful luxury property offers contemporary bedrooms, a master bath with a steam room and soaking tub, a fabulous new glass surround deck with 180° views, a to-die-for contemporary kitchen, a curved roof beach shelter and much more.
The main house provides luxury amenities and amazing beach, water, and mountain views from every room. The home features a large open kitchen with granite countertops and top of the line appliances, teak trestle table that seats 10, oak floors with antique Persian carpets, cathedral ceilings, three gas fireplaces, a huge deck perfect for entertaining, and an atrium room. The two largest bedrooms include a king bed in each and the third bedroom contains a queen bed and twin bunk beds. The fourth bedroom contains a twin with a trundle bed and opens directly into bedroom two. This arrangement is ideal for families with small children.
With a six-person hot tub, two 46” HDTVs with DVD and satellite service, one with Xbox Kinect, multi-room stereo with CDs, stainless steel BBQ, teak outdoor furniture, game table, a wide selection of games and books, and an apple orchard at the top of the property with a swing and glider for the kids, there’s always something to do.
Watch ships and freighters cruise Admiralty Inlet as the sun sets behind the Olympic Mountains. Walk down the concrete path to the beautiful beach where you can build sand castles with the kids. The beach also has a sheltered picnic table next to a barbecue pit. Or enjoy the private, fully fenced heated 40' pool. South Whidbey State Park is also just a short ten minute walk where you can hit the hiking trails and experience nature’s true beauty.
Hosting milestone birthdays, family gatherings, corporate retreats, and groups of friends is our specialty. Experience the magic of Whidbey Island at our slice of heaven!

After looking for Whidbey Island real estate for 2 years, we purchased the property because of the incredible beachfront setting. After 10 years of continual renovation, we have recently rebuilt and/or redecorated almost every inch of the structures. The property is now truly world-class, designed to delight experienced travelers used to the best of the best. We enjoy hosting guests from every part of the US and other parts of the world.
The home has perhaps the best location in the Islands. Situated facing Southwest, gorgeous sunsets are experienced year-round. Rather than being elbow to elbow as with the beaches of Mutiny Bay just to the south, the home is uniquely private and adjacent to a natural lagoon. There are large fir trees surrounding the house, limbed up to maximize the views, and providing a sheltering natural setting. Our 1 1/2 acres is managed organically with native plants providing forage for birds, deer, and other wildlife. Our major remodel used FSC certified lumber, sustainably grown. Materials such as clear fir trim wood sourced from recycled beams, cork floors, and Lyptus cabinets, were purposely chosen for the green characteristics. Our philosophy is that luxury and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. In fact, by purchasing higher end products, furniture, and by using finishes that are designed for both beauty and long life, both goals are achieved much more easily.
Whidbey Beachfront is located on one of the best beaches in Puget Sound- a west-facing sandy beach. The location is in the northern part of South Whidbey Island, equidistant to the two most interesting towns on the island, Coupeville and Langley. We are also just 8 minutes away from Freeland, the hub for services on the island, including an excellent supermarket with organic and bulk food, artisan bakery items and desserts, gluten-free section, local and imported fruit/veges, and everything that a big-city supermarket can provide. The location is especially amazing as a hub for cycling routes; we have hosted several bicycling groups at the property.
