Overview

Whidbey Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Plan your next summer vacation and enjoy the serenity of your own private beach or explore the changing fall landscapes or even cuddle up to a roaring fire during those exciting winter storms...West Beach House is truly a year round getaway!

West Beach House is located on Whidbey Island just 4 miles northwest of Oak Harbor and offers plenty of outdoor activities and attractions for all age groups including seasonal events (i.e. tulip, lavender, jazz, kite, berry and mussel festivals), outdoor farmers and holiday markets, wineries, and art galleries.

Whidbey Island is one of nine islands located in Island County, Washington State, U.S.A. and is located about 90 miles north of Seattle. This beautiful island forms the northern boundary of Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains and features some of the most beautiful state parks with miles of hiking trails, beaches and hidden coves in the Pacific Northwest.

Traveling to West Beach House is easy! Either by car and/or ferry (driving is recommended during peak season). A 2 hour scenic drive from downtown Seattle, or 40 minutes drive from the Clinton Ferry located at the south end of Whidbey Island. The Washington State ferry system located in Anacortes sails to San Juan islands, Victoria Canada, or Vancouver Canada. So many options!!!!

About Chuck & Karen

Chuck and Karen have lived in Seattle, Washington for over 20 years. We love Washington, our new beach house, and the San Juan Islands. We bought the house to enjoy with our family and friends and to escape the daily demands of the city. We walk on the beach to the State Park that is less than 1/2 mile away, catch our own Crab and just hang out in doors with a warm fire. We share the house with our friends and family, and now with you, and yours!

We realized that we were working too hard and wanted to slow down and enjoy life. We looked for over a year before buying our West Beach House. It has been one of the best decisions we've ever made have no regrets.

Why Chuck & Karen chose Whidbey Island

The beach and house are spectacular and we loved its proximity to Coupeville, Deception Pass, and Ebey's Landing.

What makes this house unique

From East to West, the House is nestled between the Pacific ocean and a natural wetlands preserve with plenty of eagles, beautiful birds, and otters. From North to South is the Olympic Peninsula and the gateway to Canada.

Feels like your coating on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beach house about 4 or 5 times. The beds are so comfortable bedding really pretty.they just did some renovations and the main bathroom is really nice without loosing that seaside feel, but the reason we keep coming back is the huge windows multiple decks that capture the amazing sunrises and sunsets and the ocean is literally right there

Girl's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and clean. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The beach is just steps away and you can hear the waves crashing. We had a wonderful time.

Beautiful home, killer location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the beach house last weekend and had a wonderful time with my family. We enjoyed the views, played on the beach that was just steps off of the deck, and watched the bald eagles fly overhead. The kitchen was well equipped and the furniture in the house was comfortable and clean. And the bed in the master bedroom was a dream. I slept like a rock after being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. I absolutely loved our time there and can't wait to go back soon!

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this vacation rental. The space afforded us so many vantage points to enjoy the outlook that the house has to offer. Great access to the beach straight off the deck and miles of beach to walk on in low tide. Very quiet, peaceful location. The house is well equipped and spacious - with fantastic views of the ocean - so even on blustery days staying indoors is not a problem! Would definitely stay again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing beach house! Six of us got away for a girls getaway and this house was perfect. Other than a beach walk, we didn't leave the house all weekend! We didn't want to escape the comfort and view. We couldn't believe how quiet the house was either. The ones who chose to sleep in were not disturbed at all by the ones up early making breakfast downstairs.

Karen, the owner and Wally, the caretaker were fantastic to work with.

We can't wait to come back!
