Description from owner


Whidbey Beach Retreat is one of the most spacious and luxurious beach homes on Whidbey Island.

- Very kid and elderly friendly. Level entrance and wheelchair accessible on first level, all 36" doors. Kids can ride their bikes and skateboards on a level dead-end street.

- Totally upscale but tasteful, excellent floor plan, interesting architecture like box beams in the living room, granite/travertine tile finishes in all 4 bathrooms and counters.

This is a fantastic beach for walking, clamming, etc.There is direct access to the beach from the house down 8 concrete steps and about 8 feet of rip-rap stones behind the bulkhead. For those who prefer a little smoother access to the beach, it is available at the gentle boat ramp a few doors down. When the tide is out, it is out several hundred yards. The beach is almost entirely sandy (not at all muddy or silty), with a few places of smaller rocks for some interesting tidal pools - you can go barefoot. In the summer the tidal pools are like bathwater. You can see the sunrise and sunset all year long. The ferries from Edmonds/Kingston are visible, as well as all the shipping traffic from Seattle (cargo, cruiseships, Clipper to Victoria, etc.). Seals, sea otters, and eagles are seen on a daily basis. Seals sit on the rocks a few hundred yards out.
