At low tide('minus tide') you can walk the sand for miles. Clamming, fishing and shell hunting are always fun too. Don't forget your camera as you may see the whales swim into the low waters right off the bulkhead(that is how we named our vacation home) at a medium high tide.

Karen and Rick Neal: By way of Connecticut near the Long Island Sound we ended up in California (Disneyland area)over 30 years ago. I (Karen) am an active Realtor in Southern California since 1985 and my Husband Rick is a retired CFO and will be joining me in Real Estate soon; he is presently keeping busy with Day Trading from his home office. We enjoy water-related sports including scuba diving, boating,fishing, etc. Our son Ricky and wife Mckenzie(Micki) moved from Maui to Whidbey Island(they live nearby)which brought us up here to Clinton where we found our life-long dream of living directly on the water at 'The Whale's Tale'; at least part time for now. Upon your inquiry we will send you additional photos.

Karen Neal and Rick Neal purchased this house in 2006

Rural and quiet with great views.

Our son and daughter-in law chose to move here from Maui to raise a family.

We now have a granddaugher.

In April of 2007 from our second story glass enclosed wildlife observatory (overlooking the Puget Sound) we saw a pair of whales approaching. We were visitied by a Mother Whale and her Yearling for over forty-five minutes while they were having a late breakfast on the local seafood in our shallow waters(we have seen whales yearly now). This amazing experience solved the dilemma of what to name our home for vacationers...'The Whale's Tale'. Not only do we enjoy views of the Cascade Mountains, but also a variety of wildlife. Long walks on the beach always leads to discovery of some new interesting creatures. This past Winter season we had otters in our back yard, deer in the front, seals frolicking in the water plus schools of dolphin swimming by in the channel between us and Hat Island! Eagles, hawks, varieties of ducks and seabirds keep us entertained too...who needs our TV! With peace and quiet surrounding us, we settle down to nighttime enjoying the sparkling city lights across the expance of the Puget Sound.

Our family had an EXCELLENT experience at this VRBO! Bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, living room, WIFI, view, furnishings, and fire pit are pleasantly more than presented in VRBO.
Owners were clear and concise in presenting and renting this property. Problems (my problem) with Pay Pal took some time and patience to work out. Thank you for your patience R & K. Whidbey Is. is full of excellent places for hiking, picnicking, biking, and fishing. (You will need a car for going to hiking and other fishing areas.) The steep hill leading to this property is a good place for training to hike steep hills. Even the physically challenged of our family took the hill on "slowly". We ate fresh fish, crab, and clams taken from the bay surrounding the island and provided by nieces and nephews . A relative lives in the area and had the traps & poles. We obtained licenses locally. Personally, I did a lot of sitting and taking in the view from this peaceful property. The family voted and we recommend this property! We would definitely go there again.

Our stay at Whale's Tale was wonderful. The very first day sitting on the deck we watched Bald Eagles fly by several times. The neighbors were wonderful and friendly and the owners were very accommodating to us and our children. The high speed wifi was a huge bonus! We would highly recommend this vacation rental.

Great place for the family

We stayed at the Whale's Tale in early August. This house is a very attractive, well maintained property with immediate beach access. The front patio and garden are fine for beach viewing and the picnic table is big enough for eight people. Inside, the housewares and appliances are all fully up to date and everything works. Our three generation family had a great vacation here. We were pleased that the grandsons had plenty to do: Exploring the beach, woods, gathering clams, etc. Local deli, Pickles was a good spot for lunch or takeout. We liked Primo in Langley for dinner out; and up the Island in Coupeville Toby's Tavern serves amazing local mussels. The property owner was extremely responsive. We had perfect weather during our stay. But The Whale's Tale is so pleasant that the occasional rainy day should not be much of a problem. Highly recommended!

The "Whale's Tale" proved to be an ideal base from which we explored Whidbey Island, relaxed in the home and on the beach, and took side trips to Seattle and Vancouver Island. We appreciated the lack of "touristy" attractions and the all-too common chain restaurants found most places.

Awesome house! Great location with lots of kids to play with. Fun roasting marshmellows in the fire pit. Fun collecting treasures at low tide and very crisp fun swimming in the beautiful water at high tide. Awesome fireworks shows all around on July 4th.

The house was very clean, comfortable and roomy. Well equipped for cooking and great set-up for kids. We had a blast and will return for sure.
