High-bank waterfront home w/ Puget Sound & wildlife views!

Breathe in the fresh air and feast your eyes on the most beautiful views of the bay you can imagine, when you stay in this gorgeous vacation rental on Whidbey Island, Washington. Keep a lookout for orca whales and eagles flying high overhead in this high-bank waterfront home, or relax out on your expansive deck in an Adirondack chair, enjoying the sea breeze and a good book.

Tucked away at the end of the peninsula between Langley and Freeland, this gorgeous home is 22 miles from Clinton, where you can catch the ferry to Mukilteo. Drive just five miles to Freeland or eight to Langley to spend time exploring and trying charming little cafes and restaurants.

This beautiful and light-filled home is clean and well decorated, with all of the best amenities. Inside, you'll love the beautiful furnishings and decor. Outside, you can explore the lovely yard with flowers that bloom year-round.

Relax on your large sectional couch in the living room, looking out at the deck area. Keep cozy in front of the warm wood stove, or switch on the large flatscreen TV with a DVD player. Games, books, a movie library, WiFi, and PlayStation and PlayStation 2 systems are all provided for your use.

Your fully equipped kitchen offers a huge amount of space and all of the appliances you need like a refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and 12-cup coffeemaker. Pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and wine glasses are all included. Stock up the fridge with your favorite ingredients and serve up a taco bar or a pasta feast! Eat with your whole group in the dining room with seating for six, or head outside to the deck for a summertime barbecue on the gas grill.

In addition to the living room, this home offers a gorgeous sunroom with white wicker furniture. It's easy to open the doors at the front and back of the room to create an airy breeze and a perfect atmosphere for reading a book and sipping a cup of tea in the morning.

Step out to the deck, where you'll enjoy absolutely unmatched views of the bay and Olympic Mountains. Sit at the charming, six-seat dining table that looks out toward the water, enjoying the shade from the attached umbrella, or lay back on one of four Adirondack chairs in the sun. Two lounge chairs are also provided to really work on your suntan on a gorgeous summer day.

Three comfortable bedrooms sleep up to six guests. Bedrooms have a king and two queen-size beds with lovely bedding and plenty of storage for keeping your clothing and other belongings. You'll have one full bathroom and one bathroom with a shower, and a private washer/dryer will keep all of your things clean after a hike on the island or a day at the beach.

This high-bank waterfront property boasts fantastic views and beach access if you drive or walk to the private entrance up the road. Search for pieces of driftwood and colorful rocks while you watch the gentle Puget Sound waves come in.

When you want a break from cooking your own meals, take a drive to Freeland! Many restaurants are offered in this quaint town, from the lovely Gordon's on Blueberry Hill with harbor views and fantastic seafood to the hearty breakfasts at Charmers Bistro.

Whether you spend your time on Whidbey Island relaxing and enjoying the views or exploring your gorgeous surroundings, you can't pass up a chance to stay in this beautiful waterfront vacation home. Book today!

Sitting peacefully on the deck with the fantastic view was the real rest & relaxation we needed! We had plans to explore townships and beaches on Whidbey Island, but once we arrived we tossed the keys and enjoyed the deck, private beach, wildlife, and late-night games for some long over due down-time without feeling like we missed a thing!

The view is of an inlet but it's as though you can reach out and touch the water. The sliding doors to the living room give the feeling of being outdoors. Nice touch. Beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked with utensils, cookware and dishes. Nice sized kitchen table for a group. The house has everything you need for a few days at Whidbey and easy to find. Check in and out was a snap.

The view. Needed a few more home accommodations in the kitchen.

Very spacious, clean, comfortable. Well equipped. Lovely outlook.
John B. May 2019
The house and the property were lovely. Everything was labelled and there were more than ample dishes, cookware, etc. We very much enjoyed our four nights there.

Great harbor view
Marianne L. Nov 2018
Plenty of public space for cooking and hanging out together, as well as privacy in bedrooms/bathrooms. Amazing view!

The Holmes View home really is a great place to stay. The view was so pretty and serene. Nice very spacious kitchen. Furnishings were all very comfortable, clean & welcoming. I would certainly recommend folks give this place a try.

First, the only part that was unexpected: Don't let the pictures fool you! This coastal property is 100 feet up a cliff from the water's edge.
Other than that, amazing. Beautifully appointed, single level super comfortable for those who can't do a lot of stairs. Quiet and lush, but convenient to grocery and restaurants. Could have spent another week without being bored.
Best part: sitting on the deck, soaking it all in, while mother and baby deer wander through the yard to nibble on grass and fruit.

Loved the view and bedrooms were delightful!

the brightness
Amy A. Jun 2018
We spent a wonderful long weekend at the house with another family and everyone really enjoyed it. The house is set on beautiful grounds overlooking the water and mountains - the adirondack chairs were perfect for evening drinks and sunset. It would have been great if some basic kitchen items were provided (olive oil, basic spices, sugar for coffee, etc.), but we were ok to bring our own. Also, great short walk to the beach, which was beautiful. Would've been helpful to have instructions provided at house regarding gate key and how to get there. Otherwise, we really loved staying at house and would highly recommend!

Wonderful 3 bed home with all you need to have a get away vacation.
Melissa L. Feb 2018
The location was excellent and the place was very nice for a double wide home. The view out the front towards the bay is amazing!!
Michelle B. Sep 2017
We loved this place! It has a very cool open floor plan but still cozy! The bedrooms' are good sized and the beds are very comfy. We loved that the deer came around all day to graze and eat from the fruit trees. Very friendly orange kitty that visited from across the street as well. The front deck is great for chilling with a glass of and admiring the view.

This is a great place to get away from it all. The view from the main room is mesmerizing. Our family enjoyed our stay and even cooked several meals together instead of eating out. The grounds are conducive to contemplation and connection. The bathrooms are al little outdated but not unusable. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice home for small groups. The location is beautiful.
Victoria M. Jul 2017
Beautiful view, very comfortable furnishings. Had wonderful time.
Annette C. Jul 2017
This beach house is perfect! Great location and views. Well appointed. It is unfortunate that the grounds are not kept up as you can tell the gardens were once well tended and could be gorgeous.
Andrew Z. May 2017
We loved the house! The grounds are beautiful, with a lovely view of the water. We cut some fresh lilacs and brought them into the house right after we arrived from one of the lilac bushes. We saw deer right at the end of the driveway, bald eagles, and a couple bunnies during our stay. The house itself is beautiful, everything there you could possibly need. It was a quiet, much needed escape! Would definitely love to stay there again.
Marilyn S. Apr 2017
The house was charming and the view serene. We enjoyed watching the glass makers when we went to Langley. When the sun is shining you have a lovely view of the Olympic Mountains.

The house was wonderful and we had such a relaxing stay.
Amy L. Mar 2017
The house has so much potential it is incredibly beautiful all around the house. If the issues are addressed and the property manager was friendlier it would be a great rental

Could not have found a better place to relax
Robert W. Sep 2016
Beautiful location. Home has a fantastic view. We were there a week and would highly recommend this home to others
Margaret D. Sep 2016
Great view and great house. Lots of living space. Great kitchen. Felt like a home not a rental.
Eric W. Sep 2016
convenient location. we would stay here again as it is an easy drive from the Ferry terminal and about 20 minutes to the state parks, Oak Harbor and Coupeville . would have liked clearer instructions on how to access the beach from the property. otherwise no complaints.
Marcia F. Sep 2016
Very enjoyable 3+ day "runaway" for 3 sisters, all in our 70's. Relaxing view, beautiful sunsets, nice "beachy" ambiance. We had a fabulous time!
Susan A. Aug 2016
Beautiful view and amazing stars. The home was very comfortable with open floor plan and nice size bedrooms.
Wendy W. Aug 2016
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was easy to find but in a very quiet neighborhood with a beautiful waterfront view. Huge kitchen, 3 bedrooms with super comfortable beds, very clean. We had deer visit the property in the morning and evening to eat the apples that had dropped from the tree near the entrance. There was access to full grocery and pharmacy in Freeland, only 5 minutes away. Highly recommend. We didn't want to leave.
Lauren E. Aug 2016
Cute house. Perfect for our family (2 adults, 2 kids, plus 2 grandparents). House is well stocked. Beautiful view. About 30 min to Langley or 45 to Coupeville. Great beach access.
Samuel H. Aug 2016
We had kids and grandkids, and everyone loved the house, the neighborhood beach and Whidbey Island generally.
Debra T. Jun 2016
Great View!
