FIVE-STAR HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS WITH PHOTOGRAPHER'S DREAM VIEW

Just five minutes from the Mukilteo-Clinton ferry dock, the gateway to Whidbey Island, this newly built and decorated 1150 square foot apartment provides comfort, quiet and access to the unique experiences associated with island living. Perfect for honeymooners, a weekend getaway for two, family overflow for weddings, or a family or friends reunion. The apartment includes two bedrooms, full bath, full kitchen, living room, reading/tv room and a fire-pit/picnic table in the garden overlooking the Puget Sound, the Cascade Mountains and the distant city lights of Everett and Mukilteo.

What to do on Whidbey Island…plan to explore all 55 miles of Whidbey Island. There is plenty to do between Possession Point and Deception Pass. Grab your bikes, kayaks, Scuba tanks, running shoes or horses and head for the great outdoors. Miles of hiking trails and shorelines make for great nature watching – eagles and whales are spotted often. Wineries, u-pick berry farms, and farmer’s markets add interest to a sunny day.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Clinton

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Winter on Whidbey, we have to say this was such a great rip to Whidbey, not the summer crowds, easy to get around and the apartment, perfect, there was not a detail overlooked, what a way to travel.

Our hosts were simply the best, always there to answer questions, Whidbey has such friendly folks.

Can't wait till our summer trip to the Island, I know it will be such fun.

Of course, the views are over the top. Just to sip your morning coffee and gaze at the magnificent Cascades, you felt in paradise. The Sound right at your door. I can never get enough of the sights. Just a bit to the north Mt. Baker and the south brings you to Mt. Rainer. Go to the west a bit and the Olympic Mountain range is there. There is really no place like Whidbey Island and no better place we would like to stay for our vacation. Thank you.

Very nice, large apartment and the view was fantastic even in January. If you need a place to stay on Whidbey Island, this is the place. Next time we visit the island, we'll definitely be checking availability here first.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a relaxing week at Distant City Lights and wish we were still there. The apartment has everything you could possible need and more, the landscaping and view are spectacular, and the owners make you feel very welcomed and offer advice on things to do if you want it. It is very quiet and peaceful, extremely clean. I kept opening the front door and stepping out because I couldn't believe the view. We took day trips to LaConner, Oak Harbor, Port Townsend, Coupeville,Langley and Camano Island. We saw many hummingbirds and an eagle in the neighborhood. We hope to visit again and would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Whidbey Island. Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

Wonderful Place to Stay on Whidbey Island

  • 5 of 5

Man, this place is such a great deal. The accommodations are spacious, clean and comfortable. It really feels like a home away from home. We have recommended it to several of our friends who are traveling to the area. And the owners were very helpful and welcoming but not at all overbearing or in the way. Wish we could have stayed longer!

beautiful apartment, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just had the most wonderful weekend at Distant City Lights. The owners have given much attention to every detail you could possibly want for a fabulous vacation. The location is serene with beautiful views, the koi pond and beautiful garden (early Fall and the hummingbirds were still buzzing by) we could not have found a better place to stay!

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!
