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 Seattle - yet close enough I could be back, if I wanted, in time for lunch.
For Seattle-area residents looking for a winter weekend getaway they can reach without actually going far, it's hard to top Sunset Beach Cottage. Tucked inside the rain shadow of the Olympics, Whidbey Island can seem like a veritable desert oasis in winter, noticeably warmer and brighter, even, than towns just 20 miles away.
Welcome to Sunset Beach Cottage in Maxwelton:
Located near the island's southern tip, it promised sunset views of the Olympic Mountains and a private beach. And the owners were accommodating, promising to leave the key on the kitchen table and allowing me to check in at 7 am.
While I'd learned over the years to do my homework and keep expectations low, Sunset Beach Cottage was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were carpeted and wood paneled, with a 1950's feel. The online pictures were a good representation - which isn't always the case. There were mountain views form the kitchen and the bedroom, and the beach was 10 feet from the door. The owners had left a long note suggesting everything from restaurants to a nearby golf course that charged $10 for nine holes. The closet was stocked with rubber boots for shell collecting and clam digging and slippers for the evenings. (Craig Welch, Seattle Times)

Saturdays require a two night minimum except in July and August which have a 5 night minimum. Pets are $25 per pet per night. Pets are the same as an extra person so you can add them as extra people to get a correct quote. July and August can allow for stays under 5 nights if you book right up next to another booking -- for instance, other guest is checking out at 11 am and you check in at 4 the same day OR you are checking out and another guest is checking in the same day.
