With Holmes Harbor at your fingertips, you can spend your days beachcombing, crabbing, and kayaking when you escape to this home on Whidbey Island. Inside, you'll find a nicely updated, crisply appointed living space with a wood-burning stove in the living room and a great dining area for the family. Head outside to admire views of the bay, incredible sunsets, and passing deer from the covered porch, and find ample seating and a private hot tub on the sun-splashed back deck.
This home comes complete with access to the community's private beach half a mile away, which offers a boat launch, a picnic area, and fantastic opportunities to spot marine life. You can take daily strolls through downtown Langley (seven miles southeast) to grab a coffee at Useless Bay Coffee Co., book a tour with Whidbey Island Gray Whale Tours, or browse the art galleries, local shops, and delicious eateries. Or, take a day trip a little ways up north to see Fort Casey State Park or Deception Pass State Park. Whidbey Island is also home to many farmers markets, festivals, and fairs, including the Greenbank Loganberry Festival, the Island County Fair, Langley Mystery Weekends, and the Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival.
