Distant City Lights is owned and managed by Donna and Maury Hood who have lived on Whidbey Island for ten years. Maury, an architectural engineer and builder, designed and built the apartment in 2011. Donna works for the South Whidbey Chamber and is extremely knowledgeable about what visitors can do to maximize their fun on Whidbey Island.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

We made this our home ten years ago in order to get away from the hustle and bustle of the work-a-day world and to immerse ourselves in one of the most beautulf places on the planet . This rental is near the ferry which makes daytripping into Seattle very accessible.

This location is also only a short scenic drive from Langley, a picturesque and historic seaside village that includes a glass blowing experience, unique shops, a marina, an old-time movie theater, live theater at its best and many fine dining experiences at a variety of establishments. Whidbey Island also provides some very spiritual experiences and a chance to connect with artists of all mediums in a setting where the ever-changing mix of light and water make for a photographer's dream. Picnics beside the sea and in the many well-maintained parks add to the outdoor fun.

Distance City Lights Vacation Rental is a newly painted, beautifully decorated spacious apartment. Guests will enjoy the privacy of separate sleeping areas and the ability to prepare complete meals followed by s'mores over the fire-pit in the garden. They will wake to the incredible sunrises which light the Cascade Mountain Range and the waters of Puget Sound. Except for the chirping birds and buzzing bees in the property gardens, the quiet is deafening.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
Just got back home after spending two days in paradise. Distant City Lights in Clinton, Wa., is such a perfect getaway that I never wanted to leave. The pictures do not do this place justice. The apartment is huge and more like a house. It's beautifully appointed with a breathtaking view and is comfortable in every possible way. From the moment you step out of your vehicle and walk to the front door, the beauty of this place is vivid scope for the imagination. Admittedly, we were blessed to be here during a spell of wonderful weather. Even without that piece of good fortune, Distant City Lights would be a delight. We are already missing it and cannot wait to return. Maury and Donna have thought of everything to make one's stay relaxing and memorable, and I am so glad that we discovered this gem--wonderful hosts!

BEAUTIFUL & COMFORTABLE

Beautiful & Comfortable
  • 5 of 5
I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at our rental. It is spacious, comfortable and spotless. The owners have really thought of all of the little things that make a place feel like a home and not a hotel. I would encourage anyone that wants to explore Whidbey over a few days to use this property as home base. Being able to cook and do laundry makes this the only choice over area hotels, both in utility, comfort and budget.

LOVELY STAY!

  • 5 of 5
I had a great week at Distant City Lights! The apartment was roomy and well-appointed and the bed I used was very comfortable. Everything was very clean which was appreciated! I had a couple issues and the owners were on top of it and responded immediately. And what a view - wow! I loved my stay and would stay there again as well as recommend it to others.

WEDDING WEEKEND STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 arrived late on a Thursday night after a long day of errands and preparation for our son's wedding. Our first impression of the home was overwhelming surprise of just how beautiful it was. Stepping up though the terraced garden to the our private front enterance with a sign welcoming our family was truly delightful. Entering the home the first thing we noticed was that the King sized sofa bed was opened up for us and all ready for sleeping which we found so thoughtful with our late arrival. The appartment was so spacious and so clean. Hospitality was evident in every room, with a water bottle and book lights by each bed. The next morning we woke to look out our windows to a breathtaking view outside and visable from every room in the appartment. The kitchen was huge and well apppointed for any of our cooking needs. The bathroom was lovely and spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the luxurious spa towels provided. It was nice to have a separated toilet area also. We loved the themed rooms and one room even had it's own sink, wet bar and sitting area. There is a closet filled with books, games and a few DVDs also. The sitting area outside and Koi pond was delightful and the view was absolutely breathtaking from the firepit area. This home exceeded all of our expectations and beyond. We only wished our stay could have been longer as we were there just 3 nights for our son's wedding. The owners are so very nice. We appreciated the opportunity to stay in such lovely accomodations and hope to return again and stay a week or more!

WHAT A VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 nights in this lovely space. Large, airy rooms with great natural light, and peaceful gardens with gurgling waters from which to enjoy spectacular views of Puget Sound! Excellent accommodations with 2 spacious bedrooms and plenty of room in living/dining/kitchen as well. About 10 minute drive to downtown Langley, and convenient to everything on the south end of Whidbey for exploring the Island. Located in a very quiet neighborhood cul-de-sac close to the ferry. Definitely recommend for two couples traveling together, families, or anyone seeking peaceful solitude and relaxation!

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for the PERFECT place to relax - this is the place! The property is more beautiful than the pictures show...it far exceeded our expectations! Donna and Maury were the best hosts and super friendly! You will have everything you need and more. Very clean, beautiful furnishings, just like home! My favorite place was the "Eagle's Nest" as I called it - the quiet sitting area up in the garden by outdoor fireplace...most beautiful views and so peaceful! We even saw three deer one night walking after dinner! We will be back...we may even come back to live someday in the area is was just grand! Thank you for making our 25th wedding anniversary so special!
