Why Kathy Gersch chose Mutiny Bay

We scoured the entire Puget Sound region for three years to find the perfect beach for gatherings with family and friends. We finally found it at Mutiny Bay. There could not be a more beautiful or more perfect vista.

What makes this house unique

One of the only wide sandy beaches in the area, Mutiny Bay Getaway is perfectly situated at the center of the bay. You are right on the beach. Watching the beauty that nature provides is incomparable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place! It is beautifully furnished in a sunny beach cottage theme. Everything we needed was available, so all we needed was a few pair of shorts, sandles and a swimsuit! One evening we even dug a hole in the sand for a "true, authentic Northeast Crab and clambake!" It is so great to sit in the living room, enjoy our compny, and still be able to watch the kids playing on the beach. The only downside was that we couldn't get the kids to come in at nite! We will definately be reccommending this property to others and hope that it doesn't get so popular that we are not able to get a spot reserved for us to go back again!

Perfect in EVERY way!!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented out this property for a 3-day weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday! I have many fond childhood memories of Whidbey and Mutiny Bay and couldn't wait to relive some of them and share this beautiful spot with family and friends. This is a LOVELY home, clean and well appointed.

The greatest thing about this home is that it is ON THE BEACH! There are several rental properties on Whidbey, but few have beach access such as this! It was absolutely amazing! It was so great to feel as though you were a million miles away, yet there is a full-size grocery store 2 minutes away. Everyone agreed that it was a small slice of heaven to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of crashing waves! It just doesn't get any better than this!

We were all thoroughly impressed with the accommodations! I would highly recommend this property to anyone! It's a wonderful spot year-round!

Our Girls Getaway began 20 years ago at the Whidbey Island home of one of our aunts. It was so successful we decided to continue indefinitely. After 5 years at Auntie's we began to look for other beach houses. We tried several until we found Mutiny Bay Getaway. After 3 Getaways we thought we would explore other beaches on the Island. But nothing could compare! So back we came to Mutiny Bay Getaway! Mutiny Bay is the absolute best beach on Whidbey and this delightful home is right in the center of the bay. The entire beach is sand from point to point. Being on the West side of the Island the water is calm and the weather is almost always mild. Our Get-Aways are in February; but even then the weather has always been remarkable!

The home is large with plenty of sleeping options and enough bathrooms for 12 girls! The kitchen is fully equipped and the table seats 12. It's rare to find a home that comfortably accommodates 12 women ages 20 to 80. We have voted to return again next year - and again, and again.

Special thank you to the owners for making this available to us.

Relaxing and fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 came again to share family laughter and love in this beautiful home set against an incredibly beautiful background.

The tide was low every day and the children absolutely loved searching for all kinds of sea creatures in the water and shells as well. We enjoyed our kayaks also, going on the water many times. Last year, we fished for pinks right off our shore on our kayaks. This year, we enjoyed the crabbing and having a fabulous crab feast for two meals.

This home is set up perfectly for all of us. We signed up to come back next year, so it's evident that we love the home and the surroundings and the whole experience! Love it! Love it!

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The house is beautiful, the beach easily accessibly and stunning, we were visited each day by an eagle perched nearby.

Mutiny Bay Getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the first moment we drove down the driveway we knew we were in for a great getaway. The house has an open floor plan and a "beachy" feel. The house sits right on the beach and each day the sky entertained us with constantly changing light and colors.

The house comes with many amenities. There are movies, a good kitchen with all the dishes, utensils, pots, pans and spices you will most likely need. The beds are comfortable and none of the furnishings are "tired".

During our stay salmon were leaping every few seconds out of water as we watched and each day we had long walks along the shore of the Bay.

Amazing Multi-age Family Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed an amazing vacation at Mutiny Bay in mid-June 2013. The house had perfect accommodations for our two adult kids, their spouses, 2 grandkids (ages 3 and 6), my husband and I. We enjoyed dinners on the outdoor patio with a gorgeous view of the bay and beyond. We toasted marshmallows, watched ships go by, walked the beach, checked out the tide pools, observed herons and bald eagles fishing, played endlessly on the big sandy beach and explored the area towns, markets and historical sites. Oh, we saw some dolphins, too. Even the grocery store is conveniently close. The house is lovely and homeowners Kathy and Michael Gersch are a pleasure to rent from, as well as efficient and professional hosts. They go out of their way to provide useful information to those of us unfamiliar with the surrounding area attractions.

We highly recommend this house and would look forward to returning if and when family schedules allow. Everyone in the family said, “Let’s come here again!”
