Whidbey Island Strawfield Farm Retreat
Whidbey Island Strawfield Farm Retreat

Beautiful, warm and sophisticated strawbale home on 5 1/2 secluded acres with white plaster walls, french doors to ample and very private open space, and a professional farm style kitchen. Located in the rain shadow of central Whidbey Island, just minutes from the beach, the Greenbank Farm and hiking trails. This is quintessential Whidbey Island living in a very relaxed setting.


Beautiful strawbale home in private and sunny meadow. The thick white plastered walls and in-floor radiant heat make this a cozy, warm and quiet home you will fall in love with. Main house, plus separate studio/meditation room decorated Morroccan style. The Master Suite has a queen size adjustable bed, and en suite bathroom with clawfoot tub, separate shower and double vanity. The second bedroom has a full sized bed, and en suite bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower. The studio is a separate 400 square foot strawbale structure a few steps away from the main house under a wysteria-covered trellis. It has two twin sized beds and one queen sized bed, but it does not have plumbing. It is built to match the house and has lovely french doors and casement windows looking out to the garden.


The property is gated and fully fenced and includes 5 acres of meadow, access to private community beach with boat ramp is 3 minutes down the road. Chickens, Ducks and Guinea hens are kept for eggs, fresh berries and fruit and loads of flowers in season, which guests may sample on their own (due to regulations, we cannot deliver any edibles to guests directly). Amazing birdwatching (there is a bald eagle's nest in the forest at the edge of the property). 10 minute stroll down to a private community beach. Our neighbors raise alpacas and you can go over and visit to see the animals and purchase fiber products from them.

There is ample parking area on the property within the gated fenced area.


Our son, Carlos Knox, is our farm manager, and lives on the property in a separate suite in our barn building. He is there to help you as needed with arrangements. If available, some fresh eggs may be collected. Enjoy! We alos have a family living in the separate cottage on the property, who help us with farming and keeping the place up, as well as cleaning the house for our guests after teir stay (we do not offer cleaning mid-stay).

Please also understand that as a large property, there are things that have to get done every day including feeding and watering the animals, mowing and garden watering, etc. so to do not be surprised to see Carlos or one of the other workers out on the grounds doing chores during the day. They will of course respect your privacy in the house and avoid disturbances whenever possible, especially in the early morning and evening.


There is a wonderful fireplace in the house and firewood is available or you can bring your own. There is also an outdoor firepit for evening enjoyment. There is a propane BBQ. See the House Manual for more info.

Aracely is a professionally trained chef and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, pots, pans, and implements We leave out for your use various pantry items including species, cooking oil and sundries of various kinds. The selection varies from time to time, but if there is something you specifically want to have, please let us know and we will check to see the current supply. We provide a supply of fresh ground coffee and teabags, and there is a coffee maker and electric teapot. There is also a blender, Kitchen Aide heavy mixer and toaster, as well as a six burner professional range, and microwave. If you want to cook a gourmet meal (and you will when you see this kitchen!), you will likely find what you need, but if in doubt, please inquire.

We do allow one housebroken dog at a time, with a $30 one time pet fee. The rules for the dog are:

1. Dog not allowed on furniture or beds in the house. No exceptions.
2. Dog must be leashed at all times while outside. We have farm animals that are occasionally loose on the property and we have to avoid any unwanted interaction with the dog.

If you are looking for a charming, lovely home in a rural setting but close to it all, this is the place for you. If you love to cook, or curl up with the good book in front of the fire, and just relax and sleep better than ever, you will love this place. The owners are caring and responsive at all times. This is a great home to visit in all seasons and works for one couple or two. The extra sleeping cottage is perfect for older kids. We loved the house!

This is an incredibly beautiful and cozy place. It is very generously equipped with anything you can imagine and then some. We spent a great weekend among friends here; enjoyed the large, open kitchen which indeed invites itself to cook together as a group (all of us felt that we don't have such a well equipped kitchen at home!). We took a great hike in one of the nearby parks (car distance) and later when the weather turned on us sat together at the fireplace. The adjacent Moroccan room worked well for our friends and their 2 kids as a family room (be aware that bathroom access in main house and only by walking through one of other bedrooms; was fine for us but may not work for everyone). Would definitely stay again or recommend to a good friend!

This was our second time at Strawfield Farms. We loved it so much we had to come back, and this time we brought friends. The farm really is magical - you won't find another place like this. It has an amazing kitchen to cook big dinners in and the property feels so peaceful and secluded. You literally feel like you are in an Italian villa - old world and rustic but also luxurious. Definitely take a soak in the tub!

I stayed at Aracely's place for two nights in September with my husband and parents. We loved it and did not want to leave, ever. The location is great, very secluded but close to Coupeville and Freeland (both about a 10 minute drive). You can also walk to a private beach from the house. At night we made a fire in the fireplace and hung out in the cozy living room. The kitchen is amazing, as mentioned by other reviewers. During the day, when we weren't exploring the island, we sat in the yard to soak up some sun and play with the cat. I could go on and on but I recommend booking this place and go check it out for yourself!

Aracely's place is clean and cozy. We stayed here during our wedding weekend, and Aracley was very, very accommodating when we had people coming and going for various wedding stuff. 5 stars.

I can't imagine anyone not having a wonderful time here. All review stars were completely honest, the house and grounds are gorgeous, well maintained and beautifully decorated. My husband, family and friends were able to share and create some beautiful memories here. Waking up in that cozy bed to make a cup of field tea, then soaking in that beautiful tub... What a way to start your day! The kitchen is huge, perfect for community cooking. Sun bathing on the lawn, yard games, saying hello to the chickens. Fresh eggs for breakfast! Location is great, next to Greenbank farm and store, down the road from public beach. I could go on, but ill leave it at thanking Araceley for making our time there extra special!

Our stay at Strawfield is probably our single best Airbnb experience of all time. It's an incredible charming home bursting with personality and interesting nooks to explore. And the kitchen is nothing short of amazing. The location is great as well - it's off the beaten path enough to give you plenty of peace and quiet (you're literally in the middle of the woods), yet just a short drive away from dining at Coupeville. Last but not least, Nicole, Ozzie, and Gemini are awesome. We can't wait to visit again in the future!

My dream after working over 25 in the Food Business was to raise my families food (as much as possible) on a family farm. After searching for the best location, my husband found Strawfield. My first step, was a 9 month certified program on organic farming, at the Greenbank Farm. This gave me the confidence to start with our own field and the first flock of chickens.
My interest in preserving foods, jams, pickles and other condiments lead me to plant a plot of raspberries, a variety of table grapes, a small orchard and as many herbs that will grow on the island. For color and bouquets we planted roses and a slope of Italian Lavender. These goods were then sold in the Farm stand, which our Son built.
I added ducks & guinea hens. We also were able to raise pigs,turkeys & goats in past years.
The warmth of the house is from all our family and friends who have shared from the bounty of the field, ocean and wonderful surrounding farms.
We hope you find the beauty of the Island peaceful.
