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

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect destination for our annual college roommate reunion! We appreciated the beautiful setting, the visiting neighbor dog, day trips to Langley, and quiet nights sipping wine by the fire . On our first night, a bald eagle flew right by us while we sat outside. Amazing!

The cabin was clean and well stocked with everything we needed, and the yard was nicely maintained with a cute garden. It was a bit of a tight squeeze for four adults, so I would say it sleeps three comfortably. I would definitely return!

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our only regret was not being able to stay longer.

We very much enjoyed the cottage. It had everything there that we needed. Very cozy. We enjoyed using the outdoor fire pit as well.

Heaven on Earth on Useless Bay

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful overtures for the soul await in this truly amazing setting on Whidbey Island. The views of the water draw you in. It feels like the Mediterranean Whidbey with planters filled with colorful flowers capturing simple beauty on the shore.

The cottage is cozy,, but that's all you need. Bring your aqua socks or wading boots to enjoy low tide walks. We also enjoyed a dinner at The Orchard Kitchen. A five course experience not to be missed with locally grown components to each culinary bite. Simply lovely.

We enjoyed this setting so much, that we're in search of our retirement home on Useless Bay.

Thank you Sunset Cottage for infusing our souls with island beauty and inspirational smiles. We also appreciate that we could bring our golden retriever. She is now a true sea dog.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

One step inside the front door and we were in love with the Sunset Cottage. It is cozy and comfortable inside and has outdoor living to die for (when weather permits). The view is waterfront and awesome. At high tide the water is lapping two feet from the patio. At low tide there is about a quarter mile of tide flats where we saw bald eagles sitting on driftwood logs and herons standing majestically on one leg looking for a snack. All day and night we enjoyed watching container ships, tugs towing barges and cruise ships coming and going from Seattle and Tacoma to parts unknown. The kitchen is small but efficient. The bathroom is nicely updated with a large deep tub. We really appreciated the nice touches like fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and quality shampoos and soaps. The bedroom has a king-size Tempurpedic bed that felt firm but we slept great on it. There's a high end gas grill on the patio for grilling our steaks and a fire pit for roasting our hotdogs. Oh, and a tandem kayak that provided us some great adventures. We fell in love with the Sunset Cottage and were quite sad when our time there came to an end. We definitely plan to be back.

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,
