Clinton House Rental Photos and Description

This cottage is right on the beach, stand alone 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Two night minimum on Saturday night in the winter.


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.

A magical three days on Whinbey Island

  • 5 of 5

This cottage on the beach delivered everything the listing promised and more. Three beautiful sunsets, 14 great blue herons, 6 osprey, a grill on which we cooked two fabulous meals, a fire pit for marshmallows, binoculars, and even a swim in Puget Sound.

The owner has been extremely thoughtful in preparing the cottage for visitors--all the kitchen equipment we could think of, plenty of towels, Kleenex, TP and lovely lavender soap . . . even flowers and a bottle of wine.

We just want to say thanks for providing the setting for a perfect three-day vacation.

The Sunset Cottage exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The Sunset Cottage was perfect for us. The cottage was well appointed and very comfortable and in a beautiful location right on the beach. We spent our afternoons watching the Osprey, and taking naps to the sound of the water. The evenings were beautiful watching the sunset and barbecuing next to the fire pit. We were able to purchase fresh hatched eggs just across the street. We look forward to coming back to this beautiful little cottage .

Beachfront Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this cottage will always be one of our favorite experiences. We really enjoyed the waterfront location with access to the beach. Our two retrievers swam everyday. The location is perfect, a few minutes away from Langley, yet piecefull and private. It was just the four of us, so this cottage was just the right size. The master bedroom looks out at the water and has one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in before. It is cozy, but comes with everything you need. Our favorite part though was spending time on the deck with the great furniture and excellent unbrella. What a perfect vacation!

The cottage is located right on the beach with amazing views and lots of privacy. The back patio was one of my favorite parts, a fire pit, bbq and comfortable furniture to enjoy the view on. Inside, the cottage had all we needed to have a comfortable stay and the master bed was beyond comfortable. We will definitely be coming back!

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Sunset Cottage was an anniversary getaway for my husband and I. When we walked in the door we were greeted with an overall feeling of coziness, the beautiful view and a very thoughtful bottle of wine. We spent most of our time snuggled on the couch, watching the water view and walks on the beach. One morning, during high tide, the water came up close to the retaining wall making it seem as if we were afloat. Since we went during the month of January, it was very quiet which was exactly what we were looking for. The king size bed was comfy and cozy and I enjoyed the deep soaking tub. All the amenities we wanted were there. It is obvious that the owner has been thoughtful about making the cottage a relaxing tranquil place. We did not use the fire pit or bbq but both were there for our use. We also didn't use the kitchen as we had already planned on eating out. The nearby Basil Cafe and clam pizza at the Pizzaria in Langley were favorites for us. We would certainly recommend this to our friends and would love to come back again.

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
