Enjoy Beachside vacation Rental on South Whidbey Island at Maxwelton Beach. Relax to the lapping tide and view the sunsets over Admiralty Inlet and the Olympic Mountain Range. Watch as the ships pass through the shipping lanes of Puget Sound...
As featured in the Seattle Times: 'COZY COTTAGE FOR YOUR ISLAND GETAWAY' The driftwood was strewn about like Tinker Toys and the sandy beach had washed ashore a myriad of shells and treasures.

I'd sipped coffee at my beachside cabin while watching the sun glint off the Olympics. Now, on one of the coldest, grayest, wettest mornings of the year for the rest of the NW, here I was walking along a cloudless, sun-filled stretch of tideland known as Maxwelton Beach, watching a stranger chase his yellow Lab in and out of the surf as if it were mid-September. It seemed a world away from Seatt...

... but wanted to comment on Paula anyway. Through some sort of mix-up I'm still trying to understand, we booked a reservation with Paula for the property. Once Paula realized I'd made a mistake, she promptly and courteously canceled our reservation and provided a full...More

Spent the weekend at the cottage, enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful view, cozy place and a short drive to Langley for the murder mystery weekend. Would love to visit again sometime.

About the neighbourhood
This vacation rental is RIGHT ON THE BEACH!

A wonderful time of year to be here on the island; the beach with its spectacular views will be beckoning you outside from your doorstep. Walk out at low tide, look for sand dollars and seashells- the solitude broken only by the cry of Blue Heron and our local Eagles.
Our low tides can go 1/4 mile out and yet the sand is very firm for beach combing. There are rubber boots in the outdoor closet for guests to use, but you may wish to bring your own foul weather gear for your comfort.
