About Ed West

We love to sail, bike and volunteer our time, and we intend to pursue our passions in the Anacortes area when we retire. In the mean time, we are raising our family in La Crosse Wisconsin.

Ed West purchased this house in 2010

Why Ed West chose Fidalgo Island

Mary Ellen and I have been vacationing in the area for 25 years and have decided that we want to live in Anacortes when we retire. In the meantime, we will share our home with others so they too can enjoy this beautiful area of the country

What makes this house unique

Anacortes is an especially great place to do some biking, go whale watching, Kyaking and visits to the San Juan Islands and Victoria via the Washington Ferrys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was perfect! We could get used to this view. It was so nice to be able to spread out a bit in the comfort of your house! We will be checking the calendar to see when we can come back."....Swim family from Snohomish

totally awesome

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was only for 5 days and wanted to stay more. The home is absolutely perfect in every way possible. Items that you need, cozy rooms, great bedding, wonderful layout, view was just fine and welcoming, landscaping outstanding, and the deer that came to visit a plus. Close to downtown and the ocean. Just a beautiful place. So loved it and will return.

Beautifully appointed luxury home with all the amenities, plus a killer view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home very much. Our family of seven came to Anacortes for my parent's 55th wedding celebration and we needed a home with five bedrooms.

The home has five lovely bedrooms, each with comfortable beds, superior bedding and all the amenities of a fine hotel. The family room was luxurious and we spent many hours outside on the patio, enjoying the spectacular views and the perfect weather. The house is equipped with good wifi. The kitchen is also stocked with every utensil that you might need for a large family. There are extra towels and they are fluffy and white. The whole house was spotlessly clean.

Most of all, the layout of the house and the tasteful decorating makes this Homeaway truly feel like a home. The neighborhood is quiet and serene and we were never bothered by traffic noise. We felt very welcome here, and I would love to return here with my family again.

Great place in Anacortes

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home was ideal for us to spend time with our children and grandchildren. The location allowed us to tour Whidbey and san Juan islands by car and ferry, but was also an easy drive into the foothills of the Cascades.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed, nice location, easy access. We especially enjoyed the sunsets and deer in the backyard.

Could use some yard care but didn't affect our stay at all.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the West View house. We were 9 total and there was plenty of room for the kids and adults. The house was comfortable and well appointed. The house was well cared for and very neat. It was conveniently located too. Ed and Mary Ellen were wonderful when we showed a bit early and happened to run into them at the house. There were even fresh cut roses in the kitchen. The kids liked the bikes and exploring the neighborhood. Beautiful views from the deck with perfect weather.

My husband and I had a wonderful week in Anacortes. This home was truly amazing.....great views, super clean, anticipated our every need/want! We loved it so much, we put down a deposit on new home construction that is a few blocks away......and this will be our recommended lodging if we have an abundance of house guests. Seriously, this home is fantastic!!!!! Thank you, Ed and Mary Ellen!!!!
