South Whidbey Island beach house features amazing views, private beach access with tidal beach, a large yard and serene surroundings.

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, small group retreats, sabbaticals, or couples. All are welcome at A Home On The Harbor.

A Home On The Harbor is new 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 some luxury comforts. Featuring all new beds, soft luxury linens, furnishings, black out blinds in the bedrooms, and a complete cook's kitchen for your holiday use. Grill out on the deck with the new Weber 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. 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 from our private beach in Holmes Harbor. You can purchase a license and get more information at our local Ace Hardware store, just 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.

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.

Save money by booking direct. We never charge a booking fee!

Additional Features:
Ferry travel is a fun and common way to get to Whidbey Island. The Mukilteo/Clinton Ferry ride is only 20 minutes long and is easy to catch, with trips happening every 30 minutes. Please keep in mind that summer and holiday traffic can be heavy and account for that in your travel plans. Ferry fees do apply and reservations are not available. Mukilteo Ferry landing is only a one hour drive north of Seattle.

Whidbey Island - SeaTac Airport Shuttle is an excellent way to travel between the island and SeaTac airport and saves time by skipping the ferry lines. We recommend having a car on the island, but island Taxi service is also available.

Whidbey Island has brought our family years of enjoyment and peaceful getaways from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We have furnished A Home On The Harbor with comfort and simplicity in mind so that you can enjoy the beauty of Holmes Harbor with your loved ones, too. You have found the perfect beach house for you and your loved ones so you can relax and restore. Leave your worries on the mainland; you're on island time now.

Additional Amenities:
Every guest receives paper towels, a new kitchen sponge, dish soap, hand soap, 3 in 1 one shampoo/soap, toilet tissue, laundry detergent, coffee filters, pantry spices, salt and pepper. All towels and linens are provided, including beach/pet towels. Clamming shovels, beach toys, extra propane for the Weber grill and horseshoes can be found in the shed. For young families we have a portable baby crib with sheets, a high chair and baby gates (you must install) in the home. Plenty of books, games and puzzles for your enjoyment!

    The island people are SO friendly & nice!

    We loved our stay on Whidbey.

    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 :)

    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!

    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.

    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.

    A Really Restful Retreat
    Michele was super communicative, extremely welcoming and friendly, and her home was beautiful and a really restful retreat for the five of us. Her home was really baby friendly also and great for my toddler. I would absolutely stay again!
