About Patsy and Larry Vail or Erik Vail
We bought a home and fledgling photography business in 1991.. we packed up our 2 teenage boys and all our worldly goods and moved from Eastern Washington to Whidbey Island where, for the next 20 years, we ran a portrait photography business out of our home. In 2011, we retired from photography to open a little Washington wine shop and tasting room in the Magical little Seaside town of Coupeville!! January of 2014 we moved our little shop into a much bigger and better location.. across the street.. on the waterside.. with twice the space and a beautiful outdoor patio! In 2015, we bought the 5000 square foot building our wine shop lives in AND we sold our home and moved ourselves into one of the two beautiful upstairs apartments in our building. We renovated the other apartment and are excited to begin sharing it with family and friends and with YOU - our new friends!! Our oldest son and partner continued on in the photography industry and is the one helping us to manage our beautiful new vacation rental - Vail's View!
Patsy and Larry Vail or Erik Vail purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Patsy and Larry Vail or Erik Vail chose Coupeville
After running our wine shop in Coupeville for 2 years, meeting the other business owners and residents, the many and diverse visitors... we realized we "fit" in this charming, diverse, and very accepting community of people.. We started looking for a way to live here and we found one! We bought a beautiful, historic building on the waterfront side of downtown Coupeville and we can't wait to share it with you!!

Third Time's Another Charm
We've been visiting Whidbey Island 2-3x a year for the past several years and are always happy when the Vail's little apt is available. This was out third time and again it was perfect. Walk to all the shops and restaurants on Front Street and in the center if the island for side trips north and south. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind. And Patsy and Larry also own the Vail Wine Shop below which is a wonderful place to try local Washington wines and meet locals and visitors alike. Can't wait to come back.
Great place for your Whidbey Island stay
We thoroughly enjoyed Vail's View and its great location. We hadn't been back to Whidbey in 29 years (since our honeymoon), and as soon as I saw the listing on VRBO (after looking at many others on VRBO and airbnb, I knew that this was where we wanted to stay, and it did not disappoint us. Right on the water at the wharf for a great view and a great location in Coupeville and all of its shops and restaurants. And a great central location to head south (mostly) or north on the island. The unit is plenty spacious for two, and was very clean and comfortably well-appointed. We didn't actually use the small kitchen very much at all, but it is great to have if you're going to eat in. Parking on the street was easy for us (and if you're there in a crowded season, I understand that parking is available in a near-by lot if the street spaces are full). Communication with the Vails before our trip was good, and check-in was just an easy entry into the unit. We wish we were there while the Vails' wine shop downstairs was open, but we had to miss out on that during our short stay. I would certainly recommend this for your visit to Coupeville/Whidbey Island.
Great property in Coupeville, Washingtion.
Perfect Girls Weekend Away!
A girlfriend and I stayed at Vails View for a weekend away from the city. It was perfect. Super clean and cozy with spectacular views. We had great weather and even greater sunsets. The location is perfect - we were just a quick drive away from Ebey's Historical Reserve (great hike), Greenbank Farm (great pie) and Fort Casey. We also got to meet Patsy and Larry while enjoying a wonderful wine tasting in their shop right below the property. We'll definitely be back!
Great Location. Right on the water.
Cozy apartment with a great view and a short walk to everything in Coupeville. I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else.
Lots of Hiking, Whale watching, National Historic Reserve, 5 State Parks, Biking, Boating, Fishing, Crabbing, Clam Digging, Relaxing or just strolling along the beach, adding to your shell collection...all sorts of activities by the sea. And the views are incredible in every direction! Since you're location is right in town, you might also enjoy visiting the boutiques & fine restaurants that are just steps away from your door.
