“World Class Sunsets”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Our Cabin #9 was spotless. We had our own fire pit overlooking the beach. Seals cruised back and forth about 50 yards from shore. We had planned on only staying one night but the sunset and fire on the beach was too awesome to pass another night.
The cabin had a microwave,refrigerator,coffee maker, stove and toaster. Stop at the IGA in Eastsound for breakfast items and enjoy the morning on the porch overlooking the Pacific.
The $199 was a little steep for the accommodation but the view was worth it. I will be back.
We went whale watching with http://www.outerislandx.com/WhaleWatching.php and these people love what they do. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Cabin 9 is towards the end of the property and has sits own fire pit right in front.

This was our second stay at West Beach. We are not sure how you could beat this location. We had a two bedroom cabin within 20 feet of the beach facing west. The cabins have full kitchens with bath and shower. They have added wifi for those that must stay online (okay that includes us sometimes). We sat and watched the tide ebb and flow and the sunset everyday we were there. We also explored the island. We grilled on the porch and built a campfire on the beach. We also rented a canoe to explore the bay. While you are limited to staying inside some boundaries with the canoe, we saw many purple starfish just below the surface. A great family place. Sometimes not a quiet place depending on the number of small children. Love it here though.

Room Tip: Get a cabin on the beach if you can

We spent four nights at West Beach resort last week. If you are looking for the most comfortable beds in a setting designed for rest this is your spot. The natural beauty exceeds the website, we spent hours watching bald eagles fishing and sitting on their nests, were treated to seals swimming at sunset and the herons flying through often. The warm welcome from staff, the other people staying there and the lovely hot tub combined for total rest and relaxation. We will be back.

This was my home for those wonderful days and I was comfortable and content. The staff is helpful and friendly. The location is the strong point of this West facing beach spot. A beautiful sunset is almost a guarantee. The frequent appearances of various wildlife brought additional smiles to young and old. My cabin was, as always, clean and comfortable. This was at least my fifth time here and I'll go back again and again.

Room Tip: These cabins have no TV, so bring a book for those rare moments when you are stuck inside.

We had Cabin #7, with deluxe updates, really sparkling clean and cozy. We could cook, save money and then afford to go out for other meals. We made use of the convenient on site store for groceries we forgot & camp fire supplies. They make great espresso & have local beer on tap! We loved renting a canoe. other guests did their own crab pots. People were friendly yet the famous Northwest sense of privacy is well maintained.
There are lots of pets and kids around. We went in the fall and quiet was delicious. Our cabin camp fire on the beach edge was a good closing activity for us. plenty to do or just sit at the water's edge. Moran State Park and lots of other hiking so close by. Great hosts, very helpful, if any is desired.

Room Tip: Cabin descriptions are very helpful. The hosts are very responsive and accurate via email.

Green Features: There is recycling, compost and plain garbage. So clean, with reminders and requests about energy use. Great to experience. We can be environmentally mindful and still be comfortable.

My busy family needed some down time so I booked a weekend getaway in Cabin #2 for 2 nights over Mother's Day weekend. Although technically "off season" the weather was perfect for my young beach enthusiasts. The kids spent hours looking for critters on the beach. The cabin came fully furnished with all the basics. We made a quick trip to the grocery store in town for a few items for snacks and planned to enjoy the restaurants in town for our bigger meals. Highly recommend this place for families!

Room Tip: Cabin 2 includes 2 rooms each with a double bed. Good for a family of 4 with smaller children. Rig...

We've stayed at West Beach for the last few years, and every year it gets better. The upgraded linens and amenities are nice touches. This year they added a local beer and wine bar, which was great! We love the people who work there, and everything about the setting is perfect. If you are looking for a place to relax enjoy the PNW, this is it. Your kids can play right in front of your cabin on the beach and you can relax with a glass of wine or a morning coffee (or latte from the office/cafe) and then enjoy the view. We saw whales from the beach this last time, which made an already perfect trip even more memorable!

Room Tip: We love Cabin 8, a little more deluxe, nice big porch!
