I love the beach and neighborhood, a great place to walk shady tree lined streets away from busy traffic. It is private, friendly and so close to anything you might want or enjoy. No franchises in South Whidbey so you can shop supporting small businesses. Wine tasting, wonderful farmers markets, studio art tours, great unique music at local coffee houses.

Viewing nature, the pristine beach, eating from the garden & shellfish out your front door, . I love to kayak, paddle board, boat and bicycle from my front door Free public buses into Freeland on weekdays. A huge variety of quiet forested walking trails and an even bigger selection of beaches to walk along. The ferry ride is a 12 minute ride from Mukilteo to Clinton. Go upstairs in the ferry to enjoy the 360 degree views of the islands and Cascade Mountain range on the trip.

Beautiful view, but...

  • 3 of 5
Most of our stay was very nice. I would rate the home 4 or 5 stars if not for two major complaints, neither of which could have been dealt with during our stay. First, the home advertises each bedroom as having a queen bed and a single bed. The "queens" are either full-size or slightly bigger than fulls. No way they are queens. Second, the windows (which do a wonderful job of taking advantage of the fabulous view) have no blinds, shades or curtains. Consequently, the master bedroom was full of light each morning at 5:30am. When I'm vacationing, I like to sleep late. That was impossible. Downstairs, you could hardly stand to be in the great room from about 4pm until sunset due to the brightness of the sun. And forget about trying to watch television during that period due to the glare. Those were the major complaints, both of which could be readily solved with a moderate investment of dollars. Under minor complaints, it would be nice if there was a television in the master bedroom. The home is nicely suited to children and that way the kids and adults could each watch TV during those cold, wet northwest days. By the way, we couldn't find the binoculars, which were also mentioned in the writeup. The pictures were reasonably accurate and the property was as clean as could be. Pretty much everything worked very well for us but we would not recommend the property, nor would we return unless we were assured that the major complaints had been addressed.

Nice, comfortable beach house

  • 4 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Seashell beach house. The kitchen was well equipped and a good size. The views from the living room and upper bedroom were lovely. The garden was also nice, and the property clearly benefits from a gardener's labors of love.

The outdoor toys were a nice touch for our children. We were surprised there weren't more games and toys inside the house. Luckily, we had brought our favorites from home. We did find scrabble, a box full of toy cars, and a few books and toys appropriate for toddlers.

While the upstairs bedroom is incredibly spacious, the main floor bedroom is a bit cramped with a queen and a single bed. This is something to be aware of when booking. It was fine for our family's needs, though.

The property manager was very responsive, and we appreciated the quick replies to all our enquiries. Overall, we felt the property was a good value.

Cozy beach house

  • 5 of 5
Exact representation of property. Boredom is not an option with this property. Plenty of things to do and beachfront to explore. The house was clean, the kitchen had a nice setup and the beds were super comfortable. I will definitely stay there again if I need to go to the island in the future.

House is a wonderful place to stay. The entire house is kept in tip top shape. The views from the living area & the master bedroom were beautiful. Our family of 4 enjoyed ourselves during our entire stay.

Cozy home in a great location

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I just stayed here with our two kids (4 and 6) and had a great time.
The beach was so fun (and wonderfully quiet this time of year --October) and the house was comfortable. Though not very fancy or completely updated, it seemed like a well loved and cared for home. We especially appreciated that it was so clean (not every vrbo is) and we loved the view from the living room window. It is an excellent window seat.

I chose to rent this house because it was much more affordable than other beachside places and very easy to book. The property manager was very quick and helpful in setting it all up.

One thing I wish I'd realized is that the bedrooms are on different levels. What would make the most sense as a kids bedroom is right off the living room (downstairs) and the double bed in it is super high. This means that families with light sleeping kids or falling-out-of-bed kids may want to put the kids in the master bedroom upstairs. Not a big deal at all. Just something I wish I'd noticed in advance.

It's very sweet that they allow guests to use the nice beachside veggie garden -our kids loved that-- and they obviously welcome kids (there's a high chair and baby gates and the place does not have a fragile feel about it). On the other hand, folks with really young kids might want to note that the railings on the stairs and on the decks have really wide spaces between them. Nothing I'd worry about with my kids now but I remember that being kind of a pain to watch out for when they were younger. So heads up.

Also, the stairs down from the deck to the backyard/beach are steep and spiral. You can always walk around the house though.

These are just heads ups though.
Overall, a good place to rent in a beautiful location.

Amazing ocean views from almost every window. This is the place to bring your bikes, canoes, kayaks or boat. You are on the waterfront! A boat launch road is up the street. Lounging on the long comfy window seat overlooking the sea is deliciously relaxing. You can watch your kids on the beach from the house. The 2 bedrooms each have a queen bed and a twin bed. Comfortable leather furniture is set around the fireplace in a spacious living room plus a wood stove for toasty evenings & electric heat in all rooms. A large upstairs bedroom has 5 windows to view the sea, it parallels the ocean with a Queen bed, a Twin bed and a leather chaise. Main floor bedroom has a Queen & Twin bed: garden views. The beach is a fabulous walk at low tide. Beachcombers enjoy lots of shells, lovely stones & driftwood. A colorful variety of neighborhood boats, canoes and kayaks adorn the beach.
