Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Find the peace and tranquility you've been searching for in this cozy 3 bedroom plus converted garage/bedroom home on the beach. This is the perfect spot for bringing family and friends together in a relaxing care-free setting, with beds for up to 10 people. This home features several decks and views all around, and enjoy the beauty of Whidbey Island and the Puget Sound even more while relaxing in the private hot tub on the roof top deck!! This home is built with a unique reverse floor plan. The master bedroom (featuring a King sized bed) and attached bath are located on the 1st floor. The converted garage also has a queen and full sized bed for additional sleeping. Going up a half flight of stairs, you'll find the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, both sharing a large bathroom just outside their doors. One bedroom features a queen bed and the other a double bed. Another half flight takes you up to the fully-equipped kitchen and spacious living room, where large picture windows and sliding glass doors offer sweeping views of the beach, Admiralty Inlet, and some breathtaking sunsets! But that's not all! Step out onto the rooftop deck for a bird's eye view of it all and enjoy the warmth and relaxation of the 4-person hot tub waiting for you to hop in! The backyard runs down to a charming little lake, complete with a pair of resident geese and lots of ducks and other waterfowl. Bald eagles are a regular sight as well, perched on nearby tree branches. You may want to roast some marshmallows in the fire pit, or simply stretch out with a good book on one of the side decks and soak up the afternoon sun. Please note that the ground floor of the home is the residence of our full time caretaker. There are no shared entrances to the rental portion of the home.

When you've had enough of relaxing around the house, a quick 10 minute drive will take you into historic downtown Coupeville, home to many quaint kitchen and antique shops, wonderful restaurants and a museum of Whidbey Island lore. If you desire more contemporary shopping, just 10 minutes past Coupeville is the town of Oak Harbor. You will find department stores, and even a drive in movie theatre! If you don't want to wander too far, just 3 minutes down the road you'll find Fort Casey, with lots of exploring potential, or the Keystone ferry, a great boat ride that will take you to Port Townsend, located right across the water from the house. No need to take your car, as you can spend an entire day checking out more shops, restaurants and attractions just by walking up and down the main street. There are countless places to bike, hike, swim, scuba-dive, rock-climb, fish, rent a a boat or book a whale watching cruise, shop, you want is just right outside the front door, or just minutes away. Notice: OCCASIONALLY, PER THE NAVY'S SCHEDULING, THERE CAN BE FLYOVERS AROUND THIS HOME. 4 NIGHT MINIMUM IN JULY/AUGUST

Reviewer Comments:

The location was perfect. Having the ocean and the water in back was nice. We saw a lot of waterfowl and wildlife each day. The actual property was in pretty tough shape. very few screens on windows or sliding doors. No air conditioning so thankfully it was not hot. It did not look like the property had had a deep clean in a number of months. We also had several spiders in bedrooms and kitchen area. May have been seasonal however it should be sprayed. Property was on the lower end of the price scale for a daily rate and as the saying goes you get what you pay for.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. This property is in a wonderful location as you stated and it is more dated than many other properties we manage, and therefore priced accordingly. Most homes on Whidbey do not have air conditioning. If this is important to a future guest, be sure to check amenities. We do have a few homes with it, but not very many. We will check the screen issue. There should be screens on all windows and the owner has just set up pest control maintenance, as spiders and bugs have not been an issue in the past and just came up. Our properties do get a deep clean at the end of peak season, which is the end of September. Our high season is June through September and there is a good cleaning between each guest, but windows, and deeper items can't always get done during the peak season. If anyone is not satisfied with cleanliness when they check in, we ask them to call us and we will send in a cleaner if desired to fix anything that was missed. Cleanliness is very important to our company. Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

We (pair of parents and 4 young adult kids 19 - 26) stayed at the Beach Look Out Retreat over the 4th of July weekend in 2017. Positives - lots of space, kitchen well stocked, hot tub appreciated, good internet, nice views of passing ships over beachfront homes across the street. Negatives - property getting a little tired, converted garage bedroom temperature control tough, some deck chairs need replacement, limited access to beach for long walks. Fireworks on 4th were stupendous - beach folks really do it right!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay! We just replaced all the deck furniture for this home and apologize that it wasn't done before your stay! We also have upgraded the pull out sofa in the master bedroom to a new futon and added some new linens. We hope to serve you again on your next visit to Whidbey Island!

Reviewer Comments:

The house was clean, could use just a few little details touched up. The floor plan does take a little getting used to and be prepared you will be doing stairs. The beach access is just a couple of houses down, it's a pebble beach with alot of driftwood. If you go in the fall there will be spiders, just like anywhere, and most of the sliders/windows do not have screens.
