Greetings,

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 Whidbey Island

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.

Notes:
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

COTTAGE AT CLIFTON

  • 3 of 5

Nice to walk in to flowers and wine. Cottage was clean and inviting. Beds were comfy and evenings were quiet. Nice soaking tub. Love the touch of Lavender soaps, etc. The front door knob was hard to work but owner will be fixing it. Loose dog wouldn't let me walk the dog but the owner did contact the dog owner, which was nice. Placed a few things in the washer and afterwards found the dryer didn't work. Owner stated she had placed a request to have it checked but never seen a maintenance man. Summer would be awesome to sit out on the deck. I'm giving this rental 3 stars only because of the door knob, dog issue (there is a leash law there) and the dryer. I would go again if these issues were taken care of.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were able to book just a few days ahead of time, and we're so thankful to have had a relaxing, peaceful weekend escape. The view was amazing, and as always, the cabin was immaculate and completely well appointed. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The most beautiful view on Whidbey!

  • 5 of 5

Such an adorable cottage with an amazing view. The cottage had everything we needed. We were welcomed with a nice bottle of Rose' from a local winery, fresh flowers in all the rooms and beautiful soaps and shampoos from a local lavender grower on the island. We had the best time! My husband and I stayed for 10 days and although it seemed like we had so much time when we arrived, when the ten days were over, we didn't want it to end! We took advantage of the fire pit and wood and enjoyed fires in the afternoon and cocktails just as the sun was setting. We can't imagine a better location or time. The cottage was clean with plenty of fresh towels, basic kitchen necessities, blankets, soap, paper towels, a washer and dryer and anything else you might need. Thank you for sharing your sliver of paradise with us!

Immaculate and welcoming, perfect for storm watching!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was immaculate and well maintained, with welcoming and luxurious amenities- flowers, local wine, condiments, local organic lavender and cruelty free bath products, delicious hot cocoa, great tub, plenty of good quality towels, huge bed in the master bedroom, very well equipped kitchen, nice plantings of flowers outside, comfortable living room and dining seating, etc. The location, directly on the beach, is awesome for bird and storm watching- the morning we left, waves were crashing up onto the patio! The only thing less than perfect was that there were a couple of big, loose dogs, probably belonging to neighbors, who came by and stared in the windows, urine marked the garden and patio, followed us on the beach, and made us uncomfortable to let our dog out when they were around. Probably nothing owner or manager can do about that and maybe it was an unusual thing..... Overall a very lovely property with alot of care clearly invested by owner and manager into making it a warm, comfortable, and welcoming haven. I would highly recommend it.

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,
