What we like about this property

Facing the western shores on Whidbey Island, this beach house rental in Washington is along one of the northern state’s most spectacular natural treasures among the San Juan Islands. A home of understated luxuries and ever-shifting coastal moods, it’s the kind of place that allows for a privileged escape among the sensory delights and rhythms of the archipelago.

Description

A coastal retreat designed to capture the windswept beauty of the San Juan Islands, this beach house rental in Washington reveals the stunning beauty and the fresh open vistas of the Salish Sea from the low-banks of Whidbey Island, with unobstructed views of the Olympic mountain range sunsets that glow in the distance.

Steps from the sands of the west-facing shoreline, this quietly modern home lets the natural beauty of the archipelago take the stage and its subtle rhythms to sweep you away.

The one-story ranch-style home opens into a spacious, great room with vaulted ceilings, windows that flood the spaces with natural light, and a wood-burning fireplace to set the mood, with roomy interiors that invite everyone to create their personal space.

Sending your gaze out to sea, it’s the spot that brings your focus together and at the same time out to the horizon.

There’s a state-of-the-art kitchen with a dining bar and a convivial farm table that seats eight in the all-in-one space. There are two separate en suite bedrooms that can accommodate up to four guests. 

While the home is all about relaxation and disconnecting, it’s also technology-forward so you can choose to plug-in, watch movies, listen to music, or just chill and catch the sunset.

The sea-facing grounds are designed to highlight the archipelago’s spectacular scenery. From the two plush dining terraces to the fire pit lounge and Totem paths down to the water’s edge, this is where you’ll be spoiled for choice.

SAN JUAN ISLANDS

You’ll be just steps from West Beach where you can set out on the waterways to kayak, surf and paddleboard, or mosy along the deserted shores. 

The second-largest and most populous of the San Juan Islands in northwestern Washington, Whidbey is among over 170 in the archipelago that are famous for their up-close natural diversity (with resident pods of Orcas and marine life, eagles and land mammals) and the magic of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. 

Downtown Coupeville is a few miles away with charming small-town dining and browsing, and nearby Ebey’s Landing and Ebey State Park, Joseph Whidbey State Park and Deception State Park are the spots for scenic hikes and au naturel escape. 

Seattle is the gateway to this region and is just over 2 hours drive.

    We loved staying at this home for the Christmas holiday. Beautiful home with unbeatable views. The house had everything we needed for our week-long stay and we can’t wait to come back later in the year.

    Kate

  • Matti, December 22, 2020

    This spot is magical; it’s gorgeous, calm, wonderfully appointed, and very relaxing.

    Our family was looking for a Thanksgiving escape and Totem House was perfection! The ever-changing and expansive view was the backdrop and highlight of our successful stay. We loved seeing the morning surfers, and the view of the sun setting over the Olympics from the beach stair landing was a favorite way to begin our evenings. We enjoyed the fireplace on our occasional rainy day, the large comfortable couches allowed plenty of room to spread out and watch the storms blow through. We easily explored Whidbey from this very central island location and appreciated how accessible both Oak Harbor and Coupeville are from the house, so easy to grab anything we needed or had forgotten to bring. Anélà graciously provided us all the necessary information about places to explore nearby. She also has created a cozy yet very functional space that would be great for groups or families even larger than our own. We especially appreciated the comfy beds with beautiful bedding, I have not slept so well in a very long time! We all agreed we would love to return to the charming and well-appointed Totem House. Crossing fingers for a daytime low tide and a super clear day to see all the surrounding islands the next time, thank you again Amélà!

  • Lara, November 22, 2020

    This space was amazing. Super clean, comfortable, wonderful amenities. The host is super responsive, thoughtful, and truly cares that you have a wonderful stay. We stayed here after our elopement on Whidbey and were so glad! We would definitely return.

  • Leslie D, November 18, 2020

    We enjoyed a relaxing long weekend in this beautifully decorated, well-stocked home. The outdoor landscaping and private sitting areas made for the perfect place to take in the view and watch the sunset, along with plenty of wildlife sightings. The owner was very accommodating and gracious making sure that we all had a comfortable stay. We can’t wait to go back!

  • Mike R, November 16, 2020

    We have stayed in homes in other states and other countries and without hesitation Amela is the most responsive and helpful host we have experienced. This is important to us, and we have cancelled reservations because the host was unresponsive, or unhelpful. As for the house, we have found that in some cases the pictures we have seen on the website oversell the reality. However, as nice as the pictures are of this home, the reality is even better. From the moment we walked through the door we were relaxed and discovered more small touches to meet our needs and enhance our comfort than could have been anticipated.

  • Lynne, October 30, 2020

    This property is stunning – inside and out! 5 stars all around and Amela is a fabulous host – quick to reply to our questions and check-in and check-out was a breeze. We can’t wait to come back in the summer when we can take advantage of the spacious backyard retreat! For our first trip to Whidbey Island, I could not have asked for a better place to stay! Thank you!

    Lynne

  • Rebecca, October 26, 2020

    Amela’s home is a gem. Beautifully designed and serene. Every question you might have is answered in her organized book of notes. The surroundings are like a private wilderness. I left her home feeling refreshed by nature and pampered by the experience. I can’t wait to go back to this slice of heaven.

    Rebecca

  • James, October 14, 2020

    Great location and very stylish and well equiped property. Weather did not allow us to take full advantage of the many outdoor amenities but we would definitly return. Great kitchen and wonderful views. Exceeded our high expectations.

    James

  • Kate, October 9, 2020

    The perfect retreat for our anniversary! Location was incredible and we enjoyed the local fare and destinations – one being a hike along the private beach. Everything on the island is a scenic drive away. Enjoyed lounging on the patio watching the sunset each night. Backyard + beach, yes please! Communication was very quick and helpful along with a binder of need-to-knows in the home. Comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. A fire in the fireplace was a cozy touch each night. Everything you need to host/make meals was easily accessible in the kitchen. Excited to come back with family to enjoy for future trips.

  • Asma, October 4, 2020

    My family and I stayed here this weekend and I had to promise my 7yr old we would return ! House is better than what it looks like in the pictures . It’s right on the beach ! Excellent communication! Easy check in and check out and Thankyou again for letting us check in early! What I loved most was that a lot of thought and effort was made to make sure it was a comfortable stay! We will be returning hopefully for a longer get stay next time !

  • Haley, September 29, 2020

    This is THE place to stay to enjoy beachfront relaxation at its best. We enjoyed using the fully stocked kitchen and lovely outdoor hangout spaces, not to mention beach access! The home is lovely and Amela is a wonderful host. Would definitely stay here again when coming to Whidbey!
