Oak Harbor is the largest community on Whidbey Island. The island is 45 miles long and has a shoreline of over 125 miles. Every where you look, the views are sensational. The house is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood only minutes away from NAS Whidbey and the Seaplane Base. It's only two blocks from an Island Transit stop, where its possible to ride all the way down island to connect with the WA State Ferry to Pt. Townsend on the Olympic Penninsula or Mukilteo on the mainland. You can also ride this free bus to Deception Pass and beyond all the way to Mt. Vernon or Bellingham.
West Beach is only minutes away, as is the Oak Harbor City Beach and Windmill Park where swimming and the walking trail are popular.
A two minute drive will take you to any of three area grocery stores and all the fast food you'd ever want.

Whidbey Island has lots of events all year long to make life interesting. The Holland Happening celebrates the tulips in springtime. We have Race Week, the Coupeville Arts & Crafts festival, the marathon, Tour de Whidbey, Choochokum, a huge 4th of July celebration complete with parade and fireworks, and Djangofest. There's also the Highland Games, The Island Co. Fair, the Annual Mystery tour, and let's not forget Oyster Run! (We love motorcycles) We also are close to Ft. Casey, Au Sable, and The Gail Harker Design & Embroidery Inst. For our guests who attend, we can equip the sunroom with Ott lights and 8' tables.
Along the length of the island there are five weekly farmer's markets from late spring to early fall. Good food, great arts and crafts, and wonderful music abound.
We have great skiing available off island at Mt. Baker and Stevens Pass. A little further South is Snoqualamie and Whistler is about 2 1/2 hours North.
