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 indoors 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.

Wonderful big family house. Right on beach.

  • 4 of 5

Great house. Perfect for our large family get together. Right on the beach - cousins played all day and then bonfire at night.

Excellent location right on the beach loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Property was nice, deck lovely, view great bedrooms and bathrooms awesome. The family room was nice because our three young boys were in an adjoining room which was great. For constructive feedback it would have been nice to have a kettle (but that maybe just a British thing) and the dishwasher wasn't working. But we knew that on arrival. Hopefully it will get rectified soon.

A truly wonderful family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of four and spent the week at the West Beach House in August 2016. The location is PERFECT for getting out to the San Juan Islands from Anacortes, and to both Port Townsend and into Seattle by quick ferry. It's also just 10 minutes from groceries/gas/anything you need in Oak Harbor. The home itself is wonderful - cozy and clean with all of the amenities we needed for our stay. The beds were really comfortable and we spent a lot of time wandering the expansive beach, searching for shells and creatures in the shallow tidal pools right off the porch. And the sunsets!!!! Breathtaking to say the least. We truly loved our stay and hope to return!

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely rental, clean, well stocked and close to shops! My family and I stayed for a week to welcome our Sailor home from his deployment and enjoy some time together as a family (which doesn't happen often as they are spread out all over the country)! The owners are as responsive and helpful as can be, as was their caretaker who met us with two bottles of his home-made wine! We had a wonderful vacation, sighting eagles, seals and a porpoise. We spent a great deal of time on the deck and used the gas grill on a daily basis. The baths are clean, the beds comfy and the first floor layout is optimal for gathering. Would highly recommend, thanks Karen and Chuck for giving us the opportunity to relax and enjoy ourselves!

Beautiful setting

  • 3 of 5

West Beach house offers a beautiful setting, an inviting deck, an exceptionally well stocked kitchen and comfortable living area. When reserving the home the owners were most helpful.

My husband and I rented four properties on this trip through Oregon and Washington. Each quite well clean.

We assumed with four bedrooms upstairs that the two bathrooms would be on the same floor. The second bath is downstairs.

There are two problems that could easily be addressed. The approach to the home....unkept, dead flowers in pots and boxes, red front door in dire need of new paint. And the mattresses and bed linens were the worst since camp at age 12!

Overall could be lovely.

We have rented multiple properties on West Beach, this is the only place we have rented on multiple occasions. The location, walkout beach access, the amazing home and views, I love this place!! Absolutely perfect for families and close to town and activities. The owners are quick to refund deposits and quick to respond to inquiries! Book your vacation, just don't take my week!
