Take some time for yourself and your loved ones while making a difference with a stay at this amazing home on Whidbey Island. Bay views, vibrant green surroundings, and an incredible selection of amenities give you everything you need for a relaxing island vacation in the Pacific Northwest. A percentage of the revenue made from renting this home goes towards the education and food security of Ixil Mayan girls in Guatemala
Just a few miles from the Clinton ferry landing and a public boat launch at the beach nearby, this home for four is just a short trip from the hustle and bustle of Seattle but far removed from towering skyscrapers and the noise of traffic
The front of the house, meanwhile, boasts access to a lush garden, with green stalks and red ferns sprouting from seedbeds lined with mossy stones. There's even a koi pond near a path leading you further into the vegetation, letting you take a relaxing, nature-filled walk without ever leaving the property! Take in views of the shipping lanes, where you'll catch beautiful sunsets and the cruise ships heading out for trips to Alaska
The interiors of the home perfectly balance rustic charm with modern comforts. WiFi and a flatscreen TV equipped with Netflix and a DVD player will keep you caught up and connected. Relax in a padded chair by the TV and gas fireplace, or nurse a mug of hot cocoa as you lounge on the deck. Whidbey Island's green meadows and swaying trees surround you, with the home's deck overlooking a breathtaking view of the fields leading up to Cultus Bay to the south
The kitchen comes equipped with all the basic appliances you need, along with enough counter space to provide a breakfast bar for dishing up some snacks. Between the equipment indoors and the gas grill outside, you're sure to whip up something nice and tasty to savor at the indoor table for six. Time it just right, and you can dine outdoors on the deck table for four, and watch the sky fade from warm yellows and oranges to soft darkness as the sun sets for the night
Four guests can stay in this home's two bedrooms, making it a great choice for small families, couples, and groups of friends. Both bedrooms have queen-size beds - one bedroom offers a small desk, a quaint antique clock, and stained glass panes in the windows. The other bedroom has quick access to the gardens thanks to a sliding door. Two full bathrooms - along with a half-bathroom and private washer/dryer - keep everyone refreshed, showered, and ready to explore come morning
As tranquil and isolated as this home is, it's just close enough to nearby sights and towns to make it a nice place from which to explore Whidbey Island. Your parking permit gives you easy access to a nearby beach area, including a boat launch and picnic tables. Nearby towns like Clinton and Langley, meanwhile, offer local restaurants, shops, and galleries to explore. If you'd like a change of pace from the waves of the Pacific, Deer Lake is just a few moments away!
