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 10 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 and a cozy gas fireplace in the living room. 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 your convenience, as well as a one car garage. The 1st bathroom with a tub/shower combo is in the hall close to both bedrooms. The 2nd bathroom has a shower and is at the other end of the house, near the laundry room.
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 House in 2013
Why Brian Piller and Susan Petersen chose Coupeville
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 House 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.

Beautiful home in beautiful location
This is one of the nicest homes we have rented. The lay out is nice with everything on one level, the beds and furniture are comfortable, it is clean and had everything we needed. The view of the water is beautiful. The house is located in a nice, quiet neighbourhood just a few minutes drive to Coupeville. We enjoyed walking to Long Point beach and looking at the nice gardens with flowering trees and shrubs. Coupeville is a charming waterfront village with good restaurants and the nearby State Parks are nice to explore and to go for walks.
Wonderful stay at lovingly cared for home
We had such a lovely stay at Susan and Brian's home! We can't thank them enough for sharing their home. It was our first time in Puget Sound. We fell in love with the area and could not have been more pleased with staying in the romantic cottage. It was exactly what we needed for a getaway trip. We would definitely stay here again!
The house was incredibly comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. Kudos to the owners and the cleaning staff as they do a wonderful job of keeping the home in tip-top shape.
We particularly enjoyed the views from the living and dining room. Another point that sold us on the property was the comfortable seating arrangements in the living room. Very nice to have plenty of space to relax after long days outdoors. (We are always baffled how most rentals only have one couch and not enough seating to accommodate the number of people that can sleep in the house.) The kitchen was well stocked and made it enjoyable to have breakfast and dinner at home.
The cottage is centrally located, so driving around the island is a breeze. We loved that it was so close to the wonderful trails at Ebey's Landing. The prairie to bluffs trail was one of our most memorable hikes we have done in a long time. We took the owner's suggestion of hiking at Deception Pass state park, dessert at Whidbey's Pies, and dinner at Front Street Grill. All great suggestions that I would pass along.
In summary, what a wonderful cottage in a gorgeous island. You can't go wrong with this property.
Great place enjoy Penn Cove and Coupeville
We were very pleased with the house. Everything we needed was there and everything worked. Great views of the water and a quick drive into town. Walked to Long Point several times with our dog and took lots of pictures. I liked being able to park in the garage to keep the car clean and dry. It did rain the first day but nice from then on. We have friends who live nearby and may well do this again.
So glad the weather was nice and you enjoyed your stay!
Ideal setting a quiet, relaxing vacation
Had a wonderful relaxing week in a wonderful home. Before we even reached our home in Mesa, Az we were wishing we could have stayed longer.
Great place. Comfortable. Beautiful view
We enjoyed our stay! This home was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. I would give it a 4 1/2 star but can't seem to figure out how. The dining room table and chairs are a bit wobbly so you just have to sit gently, but otherwise everything was great.
A wobbly table is certainly annoying. We will get that bolt tightened! We are glad you found the house comfortable and clean.
Stayed 3 nights with my mom and had a great time. The property is well appointed and very clean. We loved sitting in the living room and watching out the window. The property is easy access to Coupeville and around Whidbey Island. The owner was very prompt in responding to our rental request and any questions I had. We would stay here again.
We are glad you enjoyed our house..... so relaxing. Come again!
