vacation rental description

This private beach house is located within the Ebey's Reserve National Reserve Park area and is situated on the west side of Whidbey Island on its own private beach. The home is in the middle of the Keystone Spit in a national park adjacent to Fort Casey State Park, yet the Beach House is just four miles from the historic town of Coupeville, a Red Apple grocery store and Whidbey General Hospital. The home is surrounded on three sides by public property and only has three neighbors to the west. This home is not stacked and packed into a large development of beach houses but instead is part of a small in-holding within and between State and National park areas. You will really enjoy the privacy.

You can relax in 2800 + square feet of comfort in this fully equipped home. The large private fenced backyard goes almost all the way to the high tide line of Puget Sound. Since several people have asked, our property is on the water and it is private waterfront. There is over 2 miles of State owned beach to the east of ours, but it is pretty quiet and rarely used. An adjustable forced air heating system will keep you warm in the winter and the AC will keep you cool in the summer.

Enjoy wonderful water, mountain, and shipping views from almost every room in the house. A huge deck with four foot tall, one-quarter inch thick safety glass walls is perfect for dinner and drinks. We are immediately adjacent to almost two miles of publicly owned 'Ebey's Reserve' beach so our location feels very private. Puget Sound is due south and the Lake Crockett bird refuge is due north across the street, so there is a lot of water views in almost all directions. There are so many different views of the site that you should request a link to more photos so you can get a better idea.

One of my favorite views is to the west right before sunset of the Colonel's house in old Fort Casey. I have some great pictures of this and will forward a link upon request.

The Beach House is only a five minute (flat) walk to the Keystone Ferry with service to Port Townsend! The ferry leaves from very close by and lands right in the heart of the waterfront of the beautiful town of Port Townsend, so no car is needed to enjoy the fine restaurants, shopping, and other amenities available there.

Outdoor activities abound here, with fantastic salmon fishing and crabbing, wonderful kayaking or world class diving from your backyard. The public boat launch is next to the ferry terminal and is less than one minute by car. The home is bounded by Fort Casey State Park on east, Puget Sound on the south, and Crockett Lake on the north. Whidbey Island is the home of Naval Air Station Oak Harbor. The aircraft, ships, subs, and parachutists can appear at anytime. The aircraft and parachutists have been seen flying in most areas, including overhead.

This smoke-free home is located in the middle of the main waterfowl flyway of Whidbey Island. For you runners, the distance around the lake is 5.6 miles. An excellent training area for both running and biking. A wise choice for the family that wishes to be close to the cities, but maintain their privacy.

This home is 90 minutes from Seattle (including Ferry) and 75 minutes from Bellingham by car. The local airport is 15 minutes away and air taxi can be arranged with Kenmore Air 866 435 9524. The 25 minute trip from Seattle is scheduled 4 times a week.

The Beach House is equipped for 8 persons in four separate and quiet bedrooms and is kid friendly. There is also one additional semi private sleeping area not including the great room with a King sized Murphy bed. One of the ground floor rooms with a king bed also has a large window seat that can also be utilized as a sleeping area.

The home has DSL internet and a wireless router for easy use by guests. Each bedroom has two cat5 ethernet jacks to connect to the network too. DirecTV service is provided on at least 2 TV's .

We recently added a gym quality LifeFitness 9500 Elliptical training machine.

traveler reviews for this port townsend house rental

The perfect beach house getaway!!

Review submitted: July 2, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

A returning vacation to Whidbey Island and there was no doubt where we would stay again - the no-bank beach house is the perfect getaway! This time, we went with another family - what a great idea, as there was plenty of space (1 bedroom up, 3 bedrooms down, plus a large rec room with a Murphy bed, which we didn't even need to use). The large paved area in the backyard is PERFECT for kids on their bikes...riding all the way to the fence and back over and over and over again. Parents can watch from the deck above, or on the covered deck below. Large, open concept living area upstairs meant never bumping into anyone, and the large dining table was great at mealtime. Location is fantastic...beach is right there, nice walks to the ferry docks too. Short drive to the lighthouse, fort and ebeys landing trail, and we enjoyed the trip into Coupeville and it's wharf. This really is a great spot to escape citylife...and it doesn't take all day to get there!! Great owner - a real pleasure to deal with...highly recommend!!

Review submitted: June 25, 2014   Date of arrival: June 13, 2014

Perfect for our family needs. A large, comfortable, perfectly located home for out of state family visiting with us! Loved showing them the NW style of beach, ferries, farmlands and wildlife. The eagles, porpoises and ferries lend a terrific backdrop to our warm and cozy family time. Would love to go again! Steps may be an issue if a problem for elderly, but views are absolutely breath-taking!

Keystone Beach House

Review submitted: November 18, 2013   Date of arrival: November 7, 2013

Our family recently stayed at the Keystone Beach House. The location was perfect for us being close to Coupeville and not far from Oak Harbor. The house is located on the beach at Admiralty Inlet, and has great views of shipping traffic, the Keystone Ferry Dock, plus it has a play court and wonderful fenced yard opening directly to the beach--which our family really enjoyed. Ft Casey, a great place for kids' exploring, is nearby. This is an older house, but it comfortably accommodated our extended family including several small children. We enjoyed our stay and would return.
