Bird's Eye functions as a fully furnished modern style home located on central Whidbey Island. The one thing we hear over & over again is how restorative a stay here is. Set atop the upper portion of 20 acres the home is surrounded by woods, yet filled with abundant natural light with 16ft windows overlooking the meadow below, Mt. Baker & Saratoga Passage. A place where the mind can relax.

The space
Bird's Eye vacation getaway is built like a boat, compact and efficient and fully equipped with all the amenities of a fully functioning home. It serves as a very relaxing escape from the main routine of life. The bedding, cookware, and furnishings are thoughtful and of quality, all selected to amplify the restorative getaway experience. In-floor heating, 16ft bank of windows overlooking the birds eye view of Mt. Baker, Saratoga Passage and the meadow below where half the year sheep from Wild Rose Farm graze on 10 acres of hillside and meadow grass. Floor to ceiling curtains with black out option can fully close off the upstairs loft from all light & with the provided sound machine noise can be cancelled from downstairs activity. Filled with natural light, our quiet private vacation getaway is an amazing weekend escape but can also be used for longer stays to dive deeper into what the island has to offer or merely to allow you to fully unwind. A place where where you can settle in, slow down and cozy up in the natural peace and quiet. In addition to all the modern amenities of Wi-Fi, smart TV, and washer and dryer, the house also offers an outdoor covered patio with a fire pit - including patio furniture, outdoor dining table and chairs, expanding the footprint of the home by a few hundred square feet. The bathroom is compact but the shower bodes 4 shower heads and ample room in its green marble magic. The entry to the home is private and gated with thoughtful outdoor lighting to guide you in the evening. We will provide you a code upon confirming your reservation. All outdoor walkways and gardens are also lighted for moving about when the sun goes down.

What Bird's Eye is not is a party space or a hub for larger events unless spoken directly about with Amahra. We have a sensitive septic and a community well that we pull water from. Any party over the 2 people limit will be charged appropriately for the amenities and resources used by said amount of people. Please be upfront in your booking. We do reserve the right to charge you the excess of what you use if we didn't come to an agreement before committing to the booking. That fee can range anywhere from $300-$2000 depending on usage or event no previously disclosed.

Where you’ll be

Coupeville, Washington, United States

The house is in a rural private neighborhood. The roads are great for taking quiet walks. We must mention that sometimes the jets fly close and sometimes they fly right over head. We provide a sound machine and it is a good one. We also provide ear plugs and they help. We can't apologize for anything we do not have control over and we have supplied you with the best of the amenities we ourselves use when it is necessary. There is a flight schedule that can be used before booking and you can find it on Citizens of Ebey's Reserve website under flight schedule. Sometimes we don't hear them for months at a time and then one day they show up randomly. Though it is not often, when they do fly it is loud. Some are and some are not bothered by them. So far we have had no issues with guests and them. However, it is important we disclaim this information since we are advertising Bird's Eye as a restorative experience. Bird's Eye is not a party house nor to be used as a hub for large amounts to people to filter through. We want to keep good relations with our neighbors and 10mph speed limit is to be adhered to.

As a mother of two girls, caretaker of many wonderful animals, land steward and managing my own creative business, life is very full and beautiful. In time I know I will travel again like I did in my 20's and early 30's but until then I am beyond thrilled to finally have our private gem of a guest house - Bird's Eye Vacation Getaway - available for the world to visit and absorb into. It has been created with the utmost love and attention to detail and her view is one-of-a-kind.
