Property type cottage

About the property

Sunset Beach Haven Is A Classic Beach Cabin, Updated With Many Modern Comforts.

NEW! Sunset Beach Haven, formerly known as "Fairwinds on West Beach" is proud to announce joining the Mattson Family and Sandpiper Haven, our successful Waterfront Vacation Rental Property just 10 minutes to the south. Sunset Beach Haven, to coin one of our Guests, is "seriously waterfront" - you just can't get much closer than this to the beach and ocean - it is located directly on famous West Beach and greets each day with beautiful views of ships, seals, otters, and occasionally whales playing in the water, and of the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains rising in the distance across the waters of Admiralty Inlet with 180' plus views out to the sound and mountains. Breathtaking!

To the east, watch the sun rise over the Swantown Lake Wildlife Refuge. Every window has a view of the water, but the Living Room is west facing to capture the warmth of the afternoon sun on a large private deck in fair weather, or inspire romance watching storm-churned waves while comfortably seated inside.

Evenings can be spent curled up with a book on our NEW matching high quality Macy's microfiber couch and oversized chair, or playing games and doing puzzles with friends and family, or watching a movie on the HDTV. New cable and Wifi (with two dedicated lines) have been added, along with a NEW ROKU and complimentary Netflix and Amazon Prime. We also have a DVD player with modest library (you won't lack for something to watch besides the scenery, if that's what you'd like to do).

Wheel our gas grill out to barbecue, and end the evening with a camp fire in our outdoor fire pit. (Wood is usually available.) And don't forget the sunsets - some of the most spectacular ones you could ever imagine. Or, you may prefer an evening out with great dining options in Coupeville, Oak Harbor and beyond.

The house sleeps up to 5 comfortably, and generally is best for groups 2-4, with a pillow-top Queen Bed in the Master, and two NEW plush-top twins in the second bedroom. There is a NEW QUEEN sleeper sofa. We even provide a portable crib and high chair for infants.

Action seekers may launch their own kayaks and paddle boards to test their skills on the exposed beaches of Whidbey Island's west shore, or make the 10 minute trip to launch in world famous Penn Cove for a calmer experience. Take the opportunity to explore the hiking at Ebey's Landing, and bike the trails of "The Kettles" exploring a landscape scoured by glaciers thousands of years ago. Or, simply stroll the beach for miles at low to mid-tide directly in front of the house. Joseph Whidbey State Park is just a10 minute stroll north by foot up the same beach.

The historic waterfront town of Coupeville, can be reached in about 15 minutes by car. Oak Harbor, to the east, is about 5-7 minutes away for major shopping amenities and restaurants. Deception Pass Bridge and State Park are about 15 minutes north. To the south lies Fort Ebey, Fort Casey, Ebey's Landing and the nearby Coupeville Ferry (departing from Keystone Harbor) with service to historic Port Townsend. Greenbank Winery, antiques shops, galleries, and the town of Langley are further afield.

Looking for an especially exciting stay - book during the wintertime and witness first hand the rugged coastline as winter storms sometimes roll in down the Strait of Juan de Fuca sending spray up the new bulkhead. Experience the "Like Living on a boat" firsthand.

Sister property to Sandpiper Haven (also in Oak Harbor, about 10 minutes away), Sunset Beach Haven has the same owners and managers. Read our over 80 five-star reviews on Sandpiper Haven (property no. 395752) and you'll see the commitment we have to providing a memorable vacation experience in a lovely home-away-from-home with stunning views. And don't miss the "about us" on THIS listing, which has tucked away at the bottom 20, five star reviews for Sunset Beach Haven that were from the previous owners. We are the new owners (purchased October, 2015), so unfortunately have not had time yet to gather many of our online reviews and this is the only location Home Away allows us to post these reviews.

Yes, it's like being on a boat perched right at the water's edge, but better with the creature comforts you come to expect in a vacation getaway, and then some!

Note that Sunset Beach Haven has been updated since 2012 with new finishes, appliances, dishes, cookware, and furnishings. We have also added cable and Wifi. Wiring, and plumbing have also been updated and insulation has been added as well. New radiant heaters keep the house comfortable year-round, even in the winter storms.

Sunset Beach Haven is best suited for: families, romantic getaways, couples retreats, girls weekends away, small reunions, great stays when attending a wedding, holiday gatherings, anniversary present for the grandparents, rewards for employees, adventure-seekers, and many more.

Visit our website, see our video, and read our guest comments and look no further. Stay and Play at Sunset Beach Haven.

Thank you! We appreciate your confidence in choosing our home for your vacation.
