Thank you for your interest in a reservation at Sunset Beach Cottage on Whidbey Island. I’d like to introduce you to my beach side vacation rentals. I know you will be pleased with a stay here.

This is a wonderful time of year to be here on the Island, and the beach with its spectacular views will be beckoning you outside from your doorstep. I love to walk out at low tide, looking for sand dollars and seashells, the solitude broken only by the cry of Blue Heron and our local eagles. Our low tides can go ¼ mile out and yet the sand is very firm for beach combing. There are rubber boots in the closet for guests to use, but you may wish to bring your own foul weather gear for your comfort.

The accommodations are in a beautifully remodeled two-bedroom guest cottage, with a master bedroom with a king-size bed, a couch that makes out into a double bed, and a small bedroom with a twin bed with a trundle. If you or anyone you know will be visiting this season, please keep in mind this relaxed and comfortable “spare room” we have here.

For your comfort, there is digital TV and a DVD player, a cozy wood stove, and a full kitchen. The cottage sleeps up to 6 people, but if you have more in your party, we will do our best to accommodate you!

Once you are settled in, the nightly sunset views of Admiralty Inlet, the Olympic Mountain Range, and the shipping lanes of Puget Sound from the living room/kitchen or the master bedroom, are nothing less than spectacular. You or your guests can spend time enjoying the natural beauty around you, walking, bird watching, biking, boating, and more. If you are so inclined, you can take advantage of the sophisticated and exciting artistic life of Whidbey Island. Langley, home of the renowned Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, the Clyde Movie Theater, and several regionally known restaurants, shops and galleries is a 10-minute drive away. Golf at Island Greens is just around the corner.

Many of our past guests reserve for a second and third time, so please be sure to contact us at your earliest convenience, especially for holiday weekends or school vacation times.

About Paula

Born and raised in Fairbanks Alaska, I have enjoyed these beautiful outdoors my entire life. My father purchased this property in 1969 and I have been coming here ever since.

I have raised three wonderful children on Whidbey and am now enjoying my three grandsons born this year.

I like to garden and you will see this on display at Sunset Cottage.

Paula purchased this house in 1969

Why Paula chose Clinton

Beachfront, beachfront, beachfront!

A private cottage and beach an hour from Seattle.

This is one of a kind - it is only one cottage on 100' of waterfront with few neighbors giving yourself a relaxing vacation at will, and add outdoor experiences to enhance the healing of pure nature.

What makes this house unique

Sunsets provided nightly looking west over Admiralty Inlet and the Olympic Mts. Birdwatching; kayaking; barbecue and patio seating; clamming; walking; biking (bring yours); beach combing; fires on the beach.

This property is right on the beach! Hear the lapping of the tides while inside the cottage or on the patio. Here is what a guest had to say recently: Thank you Paula and your wonderful crew! We had such a great time, it is so close yet we really felt like we were on vacation without having to drive 5 hours or fly anywhere! My daughter and 4 & 6 year old grandchildren came over to Whidbey to stay right at the beach and it started with a perfect, sunny afternoon--they made a beeline for your wonderful sandy beach with your buckets and shovels! We kept finding great surprises---a well stocked kitchen with condiments, etc you need, great linens and super comfortable beds, a darling trundle bed, rubber boots for the beach, spa bath supplies, bathrobes---we could have packed really light. We enjoyed a wonderful bonfire in the fire pit stocked with firewood and bundled up to watch a starry sky! The kids loved riding their bikes to the park. Maxwelton tides and shorebirds were a delight.WIFI

Spectacular views, kind attentive host, clean charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was just the getaway we needed! Easy from Seattle, yet such a departure from our daily life. The cottage is not big but has everything we needed. Bathroom has been renovated, good shower, really comfortable place to be. A mix of modern and antiques. Paula thought of all of the little things that make a stay great -- all the kitchen things one needs, binoculars to enjoy the view, fresh garden flowers! We felt very welcomed and had a lovely time. Thank you, Paula.

Our daughter and her young family thoroughly enjoyed this lovely beachside cabin. From the well-supplied patio firepit to the deep soaking tub (& organic products!) to the memory foam huge master bed and the retro (& well equipped) kitchen, it was a marvelous stay. Oh, and that VIEW!! Looking forward to future stays! Thank you!!

Sandy Beachfront property, full house right on the beach facing West! South Whidbey Island is a rural art center. When you drive off the ferry you will enter a different world from the hurry and congestion of the mainland. Surrounded by serene forests and sandy beaches you will enjoy the atmosphere.

At Sunset Beach Cottage you may kayak, watch the blue heron and eagles, dig for clams, and bask in the tides and sunsets level with the beachfront,
