This South Whidbey Island beach house features amazing water views, super easy private beach access with a tidal beach, a large yard, and a quiet beachfront neighborhood setting.

COVID-19: We want our guests and our housekeeper to stay safe and healthy. We are blocking at least one night before a stay to add more time between guests in the home and using sanitizing products. Let us know if you'd like more details. As our guest, you will receive updated information on local businesses.

Nestled on a private lane on Whidbey Island (near Seattle, WA), this newly revamped water view home has easy, private beach access to beautiful Holmes Harbor. Experience the best of the Pacific Northwest as you launch your kayak or dig for clams right on the tidal beach. This is a fantastic beach house for families, sabbaticals, or couples. All are welcome at A Home On The Harbor.

A Home On The Harbor is newer on the market and is available for the first time to vacation renters. It is freshly painted and furnished with you in mind. We have kept it simple and uncluttered, with many thoughtful comforts. Featuring all new beds, soft luxury linens, black out blinds in the bedrooms, and a complete cook's kitchen for your holiday use. Grill out on the deck with the Weber gas grill as you watch for seals, enjoy s'mores around the campfire outside, or snuggle up with a good book around the wood-burning stove inside.

Enjoy strolls on the beach, birdwatching and campfires all within a few minutes drive to an excellent grocery store, drugstore, antique shops, and fine and casual dining. Take advantage of our central location to Langley, Greenbank and Coupeville. We are also minutes from Double Bluff and South Widbey State Park. A Home On The Harbor's location really is the best of both worlds - come and unwind with an easy island getaway.

You will enjoy private access to the tidal beach of Holmes Harbor. Follow a short garden path, nine steps down, and there you are. This beach is easy enough for our great-grandma to access and carrying chairs, kayaks or clam shovels down is a breeze. Clamming, crabbing and fishing are seasonally available in Holmes Harbor. You can purchase a license and get more information at our local Ace Hardware store, just three minutes away. Clamming shovels are in the shed. The beach is an excellent place to launch your kayak from. Freeland Park boat ramp is a two minute drive away.

We do not have watercraft at the home, but we encourage you to bring your own or to rent some from Whidbey Kayak Company.

Our neighborhood is a paved, private lane of mainly second homes. It is quiet and peaceful.

If the season is right you are welcome to pick apples, blackberries, rhubarb or herbs from the herb bed for your own savory delights. As stewards of our beautiful beach, we don't use any pesticides.

In keeping with the intentional simplicity of the home we do not have any televisions, but we do have WiFi and cell phone reception. There are also games, books and puzzles for your enjoyment.

A Home On The Harbor is a private vacation home that is rented out by owners (not a management company or an agent). Most of the time we will not be available to assist you in person, but there are times when we stay at our family home that shares the driveway and path to the beach. We will not disturb you, but we are always happy to meet new friends should you wish to say hello. You will be asked to let yourself in, to follow the house guidelines, and to follow some simple house closing steps. The home has a guestbook available with all the home details. We are also available via text, email and phone for all your questions and are happy to help you with any questions you have about the area or the home.

Long terms stays and discounts are available, please inquire. Well-behaved pets are welcome on approval, $75 fee per pet. Limit 2.

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful location. Mishele was welcoming and helpful from the start, and the local tips helped us find activities and restaurants that were fun for all. My elderly parents appreciated easy access to everything on the main floor, and all of us appreciated the comfort and coziness of the main room and enjoyed lingering over meals at the table with a great view of the harbor. —Christine
I can think of no way this stay could have been improved. The property is exactly as represented: immaculate, well organized, functional, comfortable, nicely decorated, and of course, beautiful views. Mishele, so warm and welcoming, made check-in a breeze, and was quick to answer any questions. Everything needed for a stay is in this home, and I mean everything. A lovely experience. I look forward to time on the harbor again. —By Gerry
A home on the harbor is a delightful place to relax. The kitchen is unbelievable, I honestly think you could cook a Thanksgiving dinner there, it is so well appointed! The great room is a wonderful place to chill out, play games and have a meal. Having a campfire at night with Smore’s is such a treat. After That, relax into the beds with gorgeous linens and have a dreamy sleep at the shore. —by Terry
Very easy and quick access to the rocky beach - my kids spent hours throwing rocks into the ocean, collecting shells and splashing around. Very short walk to the playground and park. We rented kayaks that were delivered to the house. Nice harbor to paddle around with the kids. The kitchen was well-stocked with a deck where we enjoyed family meals watching a gorgeous sunset. Mishele was an impeccable host, leaving wine, sparkling water and a very helpful list describing local attractions. —Kim
A Perfect Location on Whidbey

We had a great stay! The house is in a perfect location on Whidbey - walking distance to Freeland (via road or beach!) and an easy drive to Langley or other island attractions. The view of the harbor from the living room and deck is absolutely amazing, and the beach is steps away. The layout of the house is ideal for families or groups with a nice separation of bedrooms and bathrooms. In addition, there is a great selection of reading material and quite a few board games to choose from. The kitchen is extremely well-organized and well-stocked, and the entire house is spotless! Plus the host, Mishele, is incredibly kind and responsive and really goes out of her way to be accommodating and gracious. We had a couple of specific requests as we were traveling with a toddler, and she was great about meeting our needs. I would give her 6/5 stars for her hosting skills, if that was an option :) —By Diane

Amazing Property and Experience
Five of us stayed on the property for a three day weekend. Everything about the place was amazing. It is a very comfortable and peaceful home and location. Mishele was very helpful in providing details on the island; sightseeing, dining, recommended shops, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and plan to return in the future. —By Geri

What a Wonderful Getaway
What a wonderful getaway. My family, including a few adult children, enjoyed Thanksgiving weekend in Widbey Island. Mishele's home is comfortable, with such a well stocked kitchen we were able to stay at the house and enjoy games and conversation. The house was minutes from a very nice grocery store. Mishele answered any questions quickly and thoroughly. Her recommendations for restaurants were spot on, we loved the Saltwater Oyster House for an afternoon snack and Braeburn's for breakfast. I highly recommend A Home on the Harbor for a family gathering. —By Judith

Great place to relax, comb the beach and enjoy local sites! The home was very, very comfortable, tastefully decorated and well supplied. A little pricey but, in our case, It was worth it for a holiday vacation! —By Barbara
