Book now and secure 2018 rates through 2019. New kitchen COMING SOON. Why choose Sunset Beach Haven? Know that we have over seventy, combined five star reviews in just over two years, and over 180 combined five-star reviews at our sister property: Sandpiper Haven - also beautiful and waterfront. See what sets us apart from the pack. We truly value YOU, our Guests. Note: we honor a 100% money back 30 day cancellation policy (not 50% as Trip Advisor lists). Sunset Beach Haven, to coin one of our Guests, is 'seriously waterfront' - you just can't get much closer than this to the beach and ocean - it is located directly on famous West Beach and greets each day with beautiful views of ships, seals, otters, and occasionally whales playing in the water, and of the snowy peaks of the Olympic...Book now and secure 2018 rates through 2019.

See what sets us apart from the pack. We truly value YOU, our Guests. Note: we honor a 100% money back 30 day cancellation policy (not 50% as Trip Advisor lists). Sunset Beach Haven, to coin one of our Guests, is 'seriously waterfront' - you just can't get much closer than this to the beach and ocean - it is located directly on famous West Beach and greets each day with beautiful views of ships, seals, otters, and occasionally whales playing in the water, and of the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains rising in the distance across the waters of Admiralty Inlet with 180' plus views out to the sound and mountains. Breathtaking! To the east, watch the sun rise over the Swantown Lake Wildlife Refuge. Every window has a view of the water, but the Living Room is west facing to capture the warmth of the afternoon sun on a large private deck in fair weather, or inspire romance watching storm-churned waves while comfortably seated inside. Evenings can be spent curled up with a book on our NEW matching high quality Macy's microfiber couch and oversized chair, or playing games and doing puzzles with friends and family, or watching a movie on the HDTV. New cable and Wifi (with two dedicated lines) have been added, along with a NEW ROKU and complimentary Netflix and Amazon Prime. We also have a DVD player with modest library (you won't lack for something to watch besides the scenery, if that's what you'd like to do). Wheel our gas grill out to barbecue, and end the evening with a camp fire in our outdoor fire pit. (Wood is usually available.) And don't forget the sunsets - some of the most spectacular ones you could ever imagine. Or, you may prefer an evening out with great dining options in Coupeville, Oak Harbor and beyond. The house sleeps up to 5 comfortably, and generally is best for groups 2-4, with a pillow-top Queen Bed in the Master, and two NEW plush-top twins in the second bedroom. There is a NEW QUEEN sleeper sofa. We even provide a portable crib and high chair for infants. Action seekers may launch their own kayaks and paddle boards to test their skills on the exposed beaches of Whidbey Island's west shore, or make the 10 minute trip to launch in world famous Penn Cove for a calmer experience. Take the opportunity to explore the hiking at Ebey's Landing, and bike the trails of 'The Kettles' exploring a landscape scoured by glaciers thousands of years ago. Or, simply stroll the beach for miles at low to mid-tide directly in front of the house. Joseph Whidbey State Park is just a10 minute stroll north by foot up the same beach. The historic waterfront town of Coupeville, can be reached in about 15 minutes by car. Oak Harbor, to the east, is about 5-7 minutes away for major shopping amenities and restaurants. Deception Pass Bridge and State Park are about 15 minutes north. To the south lies Fort Ebey, Fort Casey, Ebey's Landing and the nearby Coupeville Ferry (departing from Keystone Harbor) with service to historic Port Townsend. Greenbank Winery, antiques shops, galleries, and the town of Langley are further afield. Looking for an especially exciting stay - book during the wintertime and witness first hand the rugged coastline as winter storms sometimes roll in down the Strait of Juan de Fuca sending spray up the new bulkhead. Experience the 'Like Living on a boat' firsthand. Sister property to Sandpiper Haven (also in Oak Harbor, about 10 minutes away), Sunset Beach Haven has the same owners and managers. Read our over 20 five-star reviews on Sandpiper Haven on FlipKey (ID no. 445651) and you'll see the commitment we have to providing a memorable vacation experience in a lovely home-away-from-home with stunning views. Yes, it's like being on a boat perched right at the water's edge, but better with the creature comforts you come to expect in a vacation getaway, and then some! Note that Sunset Beach Haven has been updated since 2012 with new finishes, appliances, dishes, cookware, and furnishings. We have also added cable and Wifi. Wiring, and plumbing have also been updated and insulation has been added as well. New radiant heaters keep the house comfortable year-round, even in the winter storms. Sunset Beach Haven is best suited for: families, romantic getaways, couples retreats, girls weekends away, small reunions, great stays when attending a wedding, holiday gatherings, anniversary present for the grandparents, rewards for employees, adventure-seekers, and many more. Thank you for choosing to stay at our lovely home. Julie and Peter More

About the neighbourhood
Sunset Beach Haven is really 'Heaven' to us - we love the beauty, peace, and comfort of this beautiful home on the dramatic west side of Whidbey Island. We enjoy the quick access to the beach where our boys spend hours trolling the beach or in summertime exploring tide pools at low tide. In addition to literally miles of beach to walk (late spring through early fall as wintertime high tides can make it harder), Sunset Beach Haven is a great jumping off point to exploring so much of what Whidbey has to offer- nature, biking, hiking, whale watching, fishing, kayaking, and even some nice restaurants, wine tasting, shops etc.
Getting around
Whidbey Island is mostly rural forests inter-spaced with farmlands. There is private airport shuttle to Sea-Tac Airport, and a transit system on the island run by Island County, but a car is highly recommended for ease of access. Consider bringing a bicycle as well. Peter's first visit to Whidbey was during a summer vacation during high school when he rode my bicycle through the northern half of the island on the way to the San Juan Islands. It's fun to bring bikes but a car is recommended.
