The SpaceSunset Beach Haven is truly a bird watcher's paradise with floating flocks of resident and migratory water fowl and overhead visits by a neighboring family of eagles. Watch for whale... Note, We only reserve this way about a month or so in advance, however, we are easy to reach via other methods so if you are looking for trips later than what appears open, we look forward to hearing from you other ways. Guest AccessYou'll have access to the entire property, including built in Fire Pit (some firewood is usually available) overlooking the beach. We can accommodate three vehicles at most. Interaction with GuestsWe are very accessible by phone and email before and during your stay. We are not available to "show you around" but provide our Guests with a wealth of ideas before their stay to prepare them for a wonderful trip to Whidbey Island and stay at Sunset Beach Haven. The NeighborhoodWe love Whidbey Island and have spent years traveling around the Pacific Northwest exploring. We looked at many different communities when considering a second home. Whidbey Island was by far the winner, and Sunset Beach Haven is our second property, giving us an opportunity to share the views and exposure of the west side of the island. Whidbey has so much of everything great that the northwest to offer and perfect views of, mountains, water, and beaches, with options for hiking, biking, clamming, kayaking, fishing, and exploring, or just plain kicking back as a family with games, puzzles, a good home-cooked meal, or curling up on the couch with a good book. Getting AroundYou'll need a car but Whidbey Island is pretty easy to negotiate. Bring a bike and enjoy many of the biking trails in the parks or biking along many of the country roads. Other Things to NoteEach day brings beautiful views of ships, seals, otters, and whales playing in the water, and of the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains rising in the distance across the waters of Admiralty Inlet. 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 super comfy new living furniture, playing games and doing puzzles with friends and family, or watching a movie on the new HDTV. Wheel our gas grill out to barbecue, and end the evening with a camp fire in our outdoor fire pit. (Wood is usually available.) 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 twins in the second bedroom. There is a new sleeper sofa is in the Living Room. We even provide a portable crib and bedding 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 five minute trip to launch in world famous Penn Cove for a quieter, more relaxing 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.
