Nestled on a private lane, on Whidbey Island (near Seattle, WA), this water view home has easy, beach access to beautiful Holmes Harbor. Experience the best of the Pacific Northwest as you launch your kayak or make a sandcastle 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 thoughtfully designed with comfort and simplicity in mind. Featuring all new beds, soft luxury linens, black out blinds in the bedrooms, and a complete cook's kitchen for your holiday use. The kitchen is well-stocked with quality stainless cookware, griddle, coffee maker and grinder, electric tea kettle, toaster oven, blender, crockpot, and sharp knives. The pantry is stocked with dried herbs, salt and pepper. 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.

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.

Enjoy Holmes Harbor with easy steps to the pebble strewn tidal beach. Follow a short garden path, nine steps down, and there you are! Our privately-owned beach is easy enough for our great-grandma to access. Carrying chairs, paddle boards or sand toys down is a breeze. Clamming, crabbing and fishing are seasonally available on Holmes Harbor. You can purchase a license and get more information at our local Ace Hardware store, just three minutes away. Our beach is an excellent place to launch your kayak or paddle board and 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 from the local rental company.

Come and unwind with an easy island getaway in the perfect location. Enjoy strolls on the beach, birdwatching and campfires in our quiet and peaceful neighborhood, all within a 3 minute drive or even a walk to dining, antique shops, coffee, ice cream and the grocery store. We are centrally located in South Whidbey within a short drive to Langley, Greenbank Farm and Coupeville.

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.

Our Family Property and Guest Interaction: 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.

A Home On The Harbor is our family property. Tell us a bit about your group and your stay in your booking request.

Well-behaved pets are welcome on approval, $75 fee per pet. Limit 2.

We host up to 4 adults and 4 children at a time.

What's On Whidbey: Whidbey Island boasts charming island towns, popular parks, farms, festivals and water sports of all kinds. You can enjoy wineries, breweries, distilleries, art galleries, pie shops, farmer's markets, nature and more. You can also keep the car parked and walk to local shops and dining located near A Home On The Harbor. Families love to stay at our beach house and Freeland Park playground, only a short walk away, is a big hit. Make sure to check out the purple dinosaur!
