A Washington State Gem
Whidbey Island – breathe the fresh Pacific Northwest air and enjoy majestic views of Puget Sound, the best seafood around, miles of beaches and hiking trails, tranquil lakes, rustic farmland, and a whole lot of history. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, family vacation, weekend away with friends, or just a fun adventure, Whidbey Island is the place to visit. During a time of social distancing and isolation, a stay in one of our vacation rentals on Whidbey enables you to safely get away, explore new surroundings, and enjoy a rejuvenating vacation on your own terms. From the moment you board the ferry from Mukilteo to Whidbey or cross the Deception Pass Bridge, your adventure awaits – but be sure to keep your eyes peeled because you just might spot a whale or two!
The public sandy beaches on Whidbey welcome you with miles of shoreline and history to enjoy. Pack a picnic lunch and your beach gear to enjoy a day gazing at the water and breathtaking views. Start your adventure by exploring Double Bluff, Maxwelton Beach, Ebey’s Landing, and Dugualla Bay.
