Coupeville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Our vacation house is perfect for a couple or small family. It has beautiful water views of Saratoga passage from the main living spaces and the master bedroom with large view windows which let in lots of light. A 5 minute walk will take you right to beautiful Long Point Beach. You can often see Great Blue Herons at the beach, and other birds.

It is just a charming cottage for a getaway, and a perfect spot to come back to after exploring the many island sights nearby.

We have a nice view deck, a cozy fireplace in the living room, and a cozy electric fireplace in the master bedroom. The kitchen is completely equipped for cooking and is open to the dining room with french doors to the deck.

The master bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds. There are 2 bathrooms and a laundry room for you convenience, as well as a one car garage.

Everything in our cottage is updated, and it is very clean and bright. We love visiting here and think you will too.

About Brian Piller and Susan Petersen

We are Brian and Susie, a semi-retired couple currently living in Helena, Montana. We are prior Seattle residents and purchased this charming view home to have a place to return to the ocean, and to visit our grown children in the Seattle area. Someday we hope to move back permanently.

Brian is a native of Seattle and Susie is a native Alaskan, so our ties to the Pacific Northwest are strong.

Brian Piller and Susan Petersen purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Brian Piller and Susan Petersen chose Whidbey Island

We fell in love with our Long Point View Cottage after spending several months looking on Whidbey Island. We chose Whidbey Island for the quiet island lifestyle, the beaches and ocean views, and its proximity to seattle.

What makes this cottage unique

We particularly love the light and bright feel of our cottage, the french doors to the deck and the large view windows. The house just has lovely ambiance, has been impeccably maintained and updated. The house is on a very private and spacious 1/3 acre.

My daughter and I had such a fun and relaxing week, exploring the island and revisiting our favorites of the past visits. The house was so clean and comfortable and had everything we needed, even on the days that the weather kept us inside. Would have loved to use the fireplace for the extra coziness but we're so happy that we chose this vacation rental. Loved it!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a nice stay. We are going to have a gas fireplace put in to make the house extra warm and cozy so if you come back for another visit it should be all fixed.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in the lovely cottage, and we fell in love with charming Coupeville. We arrived to a very clean, uncluttered, and relaxing space. There are neighbors, but it felt very private. The view was amazing and we had lots of visiting deer. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Both bathrooms have nice counter space and storage which was much appreciated. Our only regret was that we were on the go a lot this vacation due to family plans and we didn't get to relax in the cottage as much as we would have liked. Susie's communication was excellent throughout and we hope to have the opportunity to return.

A friend's home in Coupeville

  • 5 of 5

I was born in Coupeviile, grew up on Whidbey and my Dad still lives there so it is always a pleasure to come back from time to time. Staying at Susie and Brian's home reminded me of my childhood. Warm, welcoming, comfortable and everything you could ever need while staying in a friend's home. Truly, there was not one thing we wanted that we couldn't find in the house and it was spotless when we arrived. It was just my husband and me for the week and Dad did come over one day for an oyster BBQ on the deck with a lovely nearby view of Penn Cove and Oak Harbor across the water. We watched a sailing regatta one sunny afternoon over cocktails before dinner on the deck too. Their home is tastefully decorated and true to the photos on VRBO - except the living room is no longer a sunny yellow. Susie and Brian were just a text away if we needed anything which was very comforting. We've stayed in homes where a manager is responsible and not had such great attention to our needs. When we come back to the Island, we'll be staying here again and I recommend you stay here too.

A peaceful, relaxing, carefree retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Peterson/Pillar home is a beautiful home in a grand setting. The view of Penn Cove on the deck is sweeping during the day and at night the lights of Oak Harbor across the bay glisten and twinkle. It is a peaceful setting within a few minutes of the amenities of Coupeville. We are a family with two older teenage boys who were thoroughly entertained with the walk to Long Point, hiking in Eby's Landing, and kayaking in the cove to the nearby Mussel Farm. The restaurant Front Street Grill served a delicious Local Fresh Mussell on Linguini Diavolo and lunch at the Knead and Feed was fresh and local. The dining highlight for us was Ciao, an authentic Neopolitano restaurant.

Back to this home, the experience was trouble-free, all the directions and instructions were clear, the home was immaculately clean; all in all our expectations were exceeded.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at the vacation rental in Coupeville and it did not disappoint! This was a sibling, son reunion and it was a perfect location to gather and reconnect! The cottage is super clean and accommodating for all your needs. We did not want for anything! My sister and I were the ones who stayed in the cottage with the rest of our family visiting! We had a great time grilling on the deck and entertaining a sweet young Buck who came on to the property. He stayed with us for about an hour and ate corn chips with us. It was so sweet and majestic!

Such a treat and made our stay so special. We are all huge animal lovers and this was such special gift for all of us!

The beach is just down the road and it is wonderful. My sister and I took advantage of the beach for walks in the morning. So much more to say about this lovely place! We enjoyed it beyond words! This will be our go to place when we visit Oak Harbor.
