This beach cottage sits on an enormous 121 foot private beach. The house is set back from the beach for the ultimate in privacy. A large, elevated rockery patio on the beach includes a small refrigerator, water, a large propane fire ring, patio furniture and a huge sun umbrella. The cottage is a split level, 3 bedroom, including an attached covered deck and an included hot tub. Low-bank beach with unobstructed views of the Puget Sound shipping lanes and the Olympic Mountains.Tons of opportunity for beach walking, exploring tide pools or just kicking back.
Wonderful cabin in a beautiful setting. Thank you for the thoughtful touches...
The location can’t be beat for beach walks and sunset views. The kitchen is well appointed and the house is very clean and comfortable.
We are a family of four and enjoyed our second visit to this cottage over spring break. The cottage is so clean and there are so many thoughtful amenities. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit as well as the hammock and large beautiful yard. It is truly a unique property. We also enjoyed walking along the beach. The weather was so nice during our stay and there were beautiful sunsets. During our stay we took a day trip to Fort Casey which was enjoyable for our family.
Our family of 4 had a wonderful time! David and BJ were great hosts, and our daughter loved the homemade raspberry jam. The cottage, including the hot tub, were extremely clean. The beach was very easy to access and we enjoyed using the sand toys that are available. The toys in the bedroom closet (circa late 80's / early 90's) were a big hit for my kids and made me a little nostalgic. We'll definitely be back!
This property is beautiful, with a perfect location. Just out far enough that you feel separated from the world, but just minutes from anything you may need. The house is so cute, great cabin feel, and all the amenities. The yard and beach access is enough to bring us back for more!
We had an amazing getaway & could not have asked for a better location! Beach bonfire was very memorable & we loved the people & dog watching from all the visitors to the park next door including some brave souls that were swimming in that icy water! My teen boys loved the basketball hoop & even dad joined in a few games. Lovely vacation, will definitely book again in the future!
This home was beautiful and just what we needed for a girls weekend. Excellent access to the beach, rooms were right sized, kitchen spacious. Lots of amenities. Maxwelton is a beautiful area and easy to explore the rest of the island for the day. Toys for kids available (if needed), hot tub was very nice and we could star watch. Owners are in the house behind and were very helpful showing us in.
Our family had a Christmas we will never forget. This house created a family memory that was perfect. The cozy cottage has everything you need to stay busy and just relax. Hot Tub to enjoy, beach to walk and sunsets to enjoy. Thank you Dave and BJ!
So clean and wonderful! Beautiful view, cozy, warm little home away from home! And we were greeted with excellent homemade jam! We will definitely be back :)
Really loved the gift basket and extra touches. We had an anamazing weekend, and really needed the refresh. The beach was so much fun, cant wait to visit in the summer.
This was our second time back to this wonderful beach cottage. As our kids get older it is more of a challenge to please everyone when it comes to vacation planning but we all just love this place. From our daily beach walks to family soaks in the hot tub we couldn’t have been happier. The cottage again was very well stocked and impeccably clean upon arrival. We hope to keep coming back!
Darling cabin, great location, right on the beach, hot tub, fire place. It was all wonderful! Has a beautiful, relaxing weekend.
Wonderful views and beach and a charming cabin. The house was very clean and well appointed. We loved our stay.
The property was exactly as described online and was impeccably clean. Dave and BJ were the perfect hosts--they gave us plenty of privacy but were readily available if we needed anything. The views and beach access were phenomenal and the hot tub was a particular treat. We've already booked again!
Clean, open layout, all the amenities provided. Spent most of our time at the patio/gas firepit right down on the beach. Would go back again!
We shared the house with my daughter and her husband, as well as their 18 month old, and 3 year old. Our other son and his kids came to visit, as well as our two single boys (early 30s) who came to play football and relax. We all concluded that we will be back for our 2021 Family Weekend next year!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. It exceeded all of our expectations! We had an amazing time at the beach house. The house had everything we needed and was tastefully decorated. The layout flows well and our young family had enough space for playing both inside and out. (Lots of toys, trucks and sand buckets available) The kitchen was spacious and the hosts left little welcoming gifts like homemade jam and snacks. There were so many great details! The hot tub is very clean and private. The beach deck with the gas fire pit was so nice for dinners, sunsets and stargazing. The private beach has silky smooth sand and plenty of space to explore. BJ and Dave were wonderful hosts, helpful, friendly and we felt like we were staying at a friend’s place. We’re already planning our next stay!
Our family made a return trip this summer to this property because we like it so much. The cottage is simple but very clean and has everything you need--like plenty of towels, beach toys, etc. They even thought to supply extra cleaning wipes, gloves and a mask, due to COVID but fortunately we didn't need to go anywhere else on the island or to use them. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, the sunsets are breathtaking and we are looking forward to another trip next year.
We had a wonderful time staying at this cabin this past weekend with my family of four. It is immaculate and has everything that you need. There is much pride and care taken into this rental. There is a beautiful lawn, basketball court, shaded deck with a hot tub and gas firepit/ 2nd deck by the beach. The beach is gorgeous and you can walk for miles. Beautiful sunsets and we even saw the comet with the binoculars.
I stayed at this property with a few friends and it was the perfect setting for a weekend away! The house is clean and comfortable, and truly has all the amenities you need! We cooked at the house for all of our meals and any kitchen item we needed was stocked. The location is great and it was wonderful to have the beach access. I would gladly stay again. Thank you to our hosts for the great experience!
What a great place! We were a family of 4 for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The view, the hot-tub, the walks on the beach, beach fire, and gas firepit. Space suited us really well. Kitchen was great with lots of counter space. Loved the welcome package of coffee and home made jam (if only all rentals did this!). Hosts were super responsive to messages and making sure everything was ready for us. We had a very memorable trip. Hope to do it again!
Loved the cabin! Great beach location! Thank you!
We loved our stay, kids had fun, all amenities were there. Nice and peaceful w/Georgeous view.
Loved the house layout, and it had all the amenities! We enjoyed the large front yard, perfect for throwing the football. The hot tub was nice, and the kitchen + living room was plenty large for the 6 of us. Great spot!
We enjoyed every minute.
This was a perfect place for our family reunion and celebration of my 60th birthday. Well supplied kitchen, covered deck, spacious outdoors and fire pit. We had an awesome time! Thank you! We will definitely do this again.
We had a great stay at this property. Everything was very well organized and clean. Beautiful view. We would love to return.
Rented this property for a quick weekend getaway and was not disappointed. Fresh flowers on the table and a nice welcoming basket in the kitchen. Beach access was great and the owners were right next door to answer any questions we had.
Such a great house, and the yard - my goodness - so wonderful! My family and I had so much fun spending our days/nights outside - in one of the three sitting areas/or in the hot tub. The kids loved all the toys and building castles on the beach with all the driftwood. So many memories we will all cherish for years to come. Thanks for sharing your home with us Dave!
We keep coming back to this place because it’s such a great spot for kids and parents! We spend hours combing the beach for treasures at low tide, digging in the soft sand and watching the ships go by. The one drawback is there’s no washer or dryer.
Our stay was wonderful. It was one of the cleanest houses we have ever stayed in, and the beach front access is amazing. We appreciated the toys both indoor and outdoor that they had available for my small kids. The gas firepit and cozy couches near the beach are perfect. Lots of spices and every kitchen utensil you could need. The check in was a breeze and very easy. The beach is so pretty and the sunsets were unreal. It is right next to a public park which can be a little noisy but overall it was a lovely home and the owners were fantastic to work with.
I booked the home for myself, my 10 year old granddaughter and a friend of hers. It was the perfect vacation, the kids enjoyed exploring the tide pools, laying in the hammock, shooting basketball hoops, building sand castles and so much more. The location was perfect, there is a playground next to the property, although with the privacy fence on the property I never really noticed the people at the park. It is a gorgeous view, cozy home and huge backyard. My favorite was relaxing under the beach umbrellas in a comfy chair in the patio area by the beach. I could watch the kids play on the beach without having to go down to the beach with them. I intend to book this property again only this time for myself and daughter-in-law. It is that beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. And, the owners were most kind and gracious. I highly recommend this property.
This is truly a happy place for my family and I.
What a great little home on the beach. It was stocked with any and all amenities a person would want. A great location. Right next to a park as well as full beach access for beach-combing, swimming etc... Thank you for the welcome basket and homemade jam. Yum! Yum!!
Was an excellent stay, very clean and great location
We had a wonderful 4-night stay with our two pre-school age kids. The house is not fancy but the setting is phenomenal and the grounds are exceptionally spacious for a vacation rental (a fire pit, a hot tub, a hammock AND room for a soccer game!). The beach access is right across the lawn and we had hours of fun walking, splashing and investigating the tide pools. It was absolutely perfect for us. Clearly the owners really put thought into making sure guests were comfortable--there were kids toys and coloring things, copious towels, extra paper products, and cozy blankets for cuddling at sunset. And snacks and homemade jam! One note--and the listing is accurate about this--there is no washer/dryer. So pack extra clothes for the kiddos.
Well equipped little house. Enjoyed the closeness of the beach, the fire ring and the hot tub.
Beautiful retreat, fun weekend with family at the beach
This is the cutest little house and the location is perfect! The hot tub was great and we enjoyed some shopping in all the island villages. Perfect weekend getaway!
David and BJ were lovely hosts. The place was neat as a pin and very comfortable. The welcome basket with homemade jam was a nice surprise. Would go again!
Quiet beach house with private beach access. Nice open field for sports. Sitting area with fireplace right next to the beach. All amenities provided including hot tub on the deck under the stars! Really enjoyed our stay. We lacked for nothing!
The house had everything we needed, the weather was cooler, but the views were amazing. The fire pit out by the beach was incredible and so relaxing! We bbq'd, hot tubbed and stared out windows for a family trip over a long weekend. It was fantastic, we all agreed we'd stay here again!
We had a wonderful experience! Lots of room for our family of four. Easy beach access, large yard, and the best view around!
This is a wonderful property we've stayed at twice. It's in a perfect location and is great for families.
Had a small family gathering and the cottage was perfect. The propane fire pit on the waters edge was a special plus! Looking forward to return to Maxwelton in the summer time.
We had a fabulous time here, and really appreciated the hospitality of the owner! Beautiful views of the bay and over to Double Bluff Beach while sitting in the hot tub, and Maxwelton is a great community where everybody waves as you drive past. House was clean and nicely maintained, all the essentials were included, and even many non-essentials were provided. The weather, well, it was typical wintertime Puget Sound weather, but even that has its own charm. So you sit in the hot tub with an umbrella, if necessary. :-) One of the best VRBO houses we've rented!
We had a great weekend at this cabin. The owners were very nice and helpful. We couldn’t of asked for better weather! We enjoyed the beach, went to Langley, and ended the afternoon with happy hour around the gas fire pit! We bbq’d steaks for dinner and ended the night with a dip in the hot tub! We had a great time and will most likely rent this place again in the future!
We had a very relaxing stay and would definitely stay in this location again. The cottage was clean and inviting with some really nice extras to make us feel welcome (thank you for the jam!). It was perfect for a quick and quiet get away
Great spot with excellent amenities. As a long time Maxwelton resident, it was nice to reminisce about the old times with the friendly owners . Look forward to staying there again Thanks
Excellent set-up on the waterfront. Private beach is great and right next to park. HUGE yard to play in and the patio can't be beat. We had a great time in mid-August with some nice island weather. The hosts are very kind too!!
Dave and BJ are wonderful hosts. Aware of the history and other areas to visit. Plenty of room in the yard for kids to lay kites, frizby, soccer etc. The seating area and fire pit near the beach was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and watching ships and sunsets. Lots of open beach to wander. We look forward to returning again.
The cozy, clean, comfy cottage has everything needed for your stay, all you need are your groceries & clothes. You've got waterfront firepit, propane gas fireplace, patio furniture & table close to the water, deck with hottub and patio table, fully furnished house loaded with kitchen accessories, Couldn't be more satisfied with our stay July 2018. Mr. Hoogerworf is an excellent landlord taking pride in ownership & it shows. I highly recommend this to anyone. Winter, spring, summer or fall.
Beautiful, wonderful and perfect!
Our family of four recently stayed 3 nights. The property is immediately adjacent to a beach park with a playground which was a huge bonus for my two kids (ages 2 and 5). It's on a quiet street with little car traffic, making for a quiet visit. The owners provided indoor toys (e.g. lincoln logs, stuffed animals, legos) and outdoor toys (e.g. balls, beach buckets and shovels) which were a big hit. The cottage was clean, kitchen contained everything we needed to cook our own meals, and owners were very friendly and responded quickly to a question we had. It's just what we were looking for.
We enjoyed the view and beach immensely. Bald eagles everywhere. Owner was friendly and easy to work with.
Home is very clean and well cared for. We enjoyed the setting and the art work. Definitely plan to return.
Came here with my family for an easy getaway weekend from Olympia. The cottage was clean, cozy, and not fussy. Kids toys were a bonus. Perfect location right on the beach. The lawn was great for kids to run around and perfect for frisbee. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit, patio, and hot tub. Gorgeous sunsets and we even spotted a whale. We will be returning any time we come back to Whidbey!
We had a great time in the early morning and nighttime hours. People were respectful while in the park. You just don't have complete privacy if that's what you're looking for. Hot tub and patio are the best features of the house and property. Beach access was great!
We had to closely watch our young kids the whole time, especially our 22 month old son, because the hallway railing upstairs and the other area overlooking the kitchen was not conducive to child safety. Great location on the beach and right next to the park.
As you can see from the photographs provided the property is amazing and such a perfect place for active kids. Even with the rainy weather we easily spent 2/3 of our time outside. The fire pit, the hot tub, The beach and the neighboring playground... we felt like we owned the whole place! The house is so bright and clean and well designed! It's vintage character is so genuine. We had all the dishes and towels that we needed. Puzzles and toys and balls…. Getting in the house was a breeze. No challenges getting settled. And the check out instructions were a breeze!! We hope to come back very soon with friends and family!! Thank you!!
The cottage was just right for our family. It had everything you might need and more. Super hot tub...we were blessed enough to see a whale from! Would highly recommend.
A wonderful relaxing cottage to stay at right on the beach with an enormous yard. In March the whole neighborhood was very quiet and we had the beach to ourselves. The fire pit is on a secluded / private portion of beach and was a great place to spend the evening. Kids loved all the toys in the cottage, the park next-door, playing in the yard, playing on the beach, and riding bikes along the quiet road behind. Located in a hidden corner of the island away from the traffic.
We loved our stay! And we loved this house! Perfect location for our family right on the beach next to a cute little park in a nice neighborhood. This quiet, clean, cozy cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway. The hot tub was put to good use and the views were beautiful! Lots of great yard space for kicking a soccerball or playing tag. The floor plan is simple and unique. Great space for our family of 5. It was everything and more that we needed for a quiet weekend away from home. We hope to go back another time when the weather is a bit warmer. ;-)
The house is cute and cozy. Worked perfect for our family getaway. We really enjoyed our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
Washington isn't everyone's first thought for a winter-time beach-side vacation, but this little cottage was perfect! David was very accommodating with our last minute booking, and request to stay a little later on Sunday to squeeze all the delight from the weekend. The cottage was ideal for 3 couples, and well suited for children. The kitchen was the best stocked we've ever experienced with VRBO, including the nostalgic appliances. Travel from Seattle was easy, and Whidbey a true delight. The beach views were so rejuvenating and the hot tub allowed for some summer-time day dreams. We will definitely be back!
My family loved this sweet little home. A great yard for kids to run and play, plenty of room for a little soccer game or some bachi ball. Just a heads up there is not a washer or dryer in the home, so you may need to pack a bit more, BUT the owners provided awesome toys for the kids indoor and out, so you won't need to pack those in at all! Plus there were plenty of towels provided as well, even enough for a couple hot tub turns. :)
Amazing views and such kind and friendly hosts. We will definitely be back!
This house was perfect. We loved the open set up, the yard, and beach access. The proximity to the park next door and the kids toys at the house are a huge bonus if you are traveling with kids. Despite the house being a little older, it was obviously very well maintained and very clean.
We were looking for a beach house on one of the islands to stay for my husband’s birthday. This was the perfect place. Great view. Great location. Great host! The house was stocked with everything we needed including water, jam and s’mores equipment. We had a wonderful time! Thank you, Betty!
Beautiful spot, lovely property to enjoy. House was very clean and Betty had everything set up. Fire pit watching the sunset over the ocean is a real highlight. very quiet and relaxing.
Clean, comfortable, relaxing, GREAT jacuzzi Rain or shine, it was a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city.
A beautiful getaway! Wonderful house with everything you could possibly need. Thank you!
Cannot recommend this house enough. The view/firepit is enough to give this 5 stars, but the owners do a great job of making the home feel cozy. The location is great being right on Maxwelton beach. 10 minutes from Langley and Clinton. There is also a very large yard and a basketball hoop. Such a great place!
The property is amazing - comfortable house (plenty big for the three of us), fabulous patio with fire-pit overlooking the water, and access to a private sandy beach. We enjoyed kayaking and beach combing, and could not imagine a better place to relax. The house was well equipped with everything we needed, and the layout is great for kids - it's possible to have privacy but also easy to keep track of the little ones. Betty was prompt and helpful with all enquiries as well. Hope we can return!
Maxwelton Beach is heavenly and this house is the perfect place to enjoy it. It was a treat to stay here!
Perfect location. Loved the big yard. Host was very helpful!
Slept like a log after spending the day in the beach.
This was one of the nicest places we’ve stayed with its quiet beach front location and extra touches in the cottage. The living spaces were well appointed with comfortable couches, chairs and dining area and made us feel like home instead of being stripped down to basics. The bathroom had extra towels, soaps and lotions for our use; though modest, it was fine and supplemented by the adjacent room/hallway’s nice counter to set our personal toiletries. The bedroom spaces, bedding and linens were comfortable. When we arrived there was water and soft drinks in the refrigerator as well as a few breakfast items. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, utensils, and even picnic supplies for our evening meal around the fire pit on the beach. This very clean cottage met the needs of two grandparents and a parent with an active four year old. We walked out across the lawn to the beach, played in the county park next door, and did a few games of Frisbee and stompers on the large lawn in front of the house. Since the weather was a little drizzly a few times we found the covered front deck added a nice bonus space for relaxing and socializing in the quiet morning and evening time. The hot tub and hammocks were great extras and enjoyed. Our reservations were handled in a quick, clear and organized for our visit. An issue with the house emerged while we were there and it was dealt with in a timely and responsive manner. We hope to go back again to walk on the beach, see the eagles, herons, seals, cruise ships and have some wonderful beach time. Thank-you for sharing such a warm and comfortable cottage. Seattle Couple
We could not have asked for a better place for our retreat to the beach. A causal but sophisticated cabin that offers just about everything but retains the cabin charm. The hosts were great and thought of everything; plentiful towels, incredibly well stocked kitchen, toys for the kids, comfortable beds and a gorgeous view. The hot tub was a hit with the kids and the fire pit was great for the adults. We ended up having a little trouble with the propane and the owner was there super quickly to get working on the problem. Thank you! The open space on the grass was great to kick the ball around and wear out the kids. The park next door was quiet and offered a nice playground. Thanks so much for sharing this great home with us. We hope to come back next year!
We had a wonderful weekend on Whidbey - what a phenomenal location! The house had everything we needed and more - thank you!
We had such a great stay! The house is beyond perfect for family travel! We stayed with our two kiddos- age 7 and 1 and couldn't have had a better experience. The house was so well stocked and the owner even included some special goodies for us too. There were tons of toys for the little ones to play with when the weather wasn't so great. The beach is beautiful and right there! Amazing sunsets too! I highly recommend this place!
The hosts were amazing! Our family had a great time and this property is perfectly located. Everything we needed and more was provided. There were many extras we were not aware of until arrival. The firepit was easy to use and was propane operated. The hot tub was a perfect amenity to end the day of beach walking and site seeing. We will defiantly be back and look forward to renting this property again!
We had a great stay in this extremely well stocked quaint beach house. All rooms are nice sized with ample room for 4-6 guests. The hot tub, fire pit and back deck have sweeping views of the water. Large open field for kids to run around on, next to a park. Tons of toys to keep the kids entertained for days. Owners were friendly, helpful and accommodating. We would definitely come back.
