About John Dingman

We purchased this property over 30 years ago; developed it ourselves and raised our children here. We built our new home in 1997, just before moving overseas. This property is so peaceful and relaxing. We have no better vacation destination than returning home to the property we love.

John Dingman purchased this estate in 1985

Why John Dingman chose Whidbey Island

We decided to start Harbor Hideaway because we can schedule our own time at our home and it is ready for our arrival. We enjoy the opportunity to share our home and show-off the wonderful lifestyle we have created. The perfect vacation for us is being at Harbor Hideaway, sharing with our friends and family.

What makes this estate unique

My best time is getting up early, sitting on the porch with the morning brew in my hand, watching the sun rise and the wild life starting their day. There is nothing more enjoyable than the peace and serenity as you view deer, raccoons, rabbits, eagles, seals and even the occasional whale. I have no doubts that I will be greeted in the morning, by one or more of the many animals nature has created. I will always see something to remind me why I love this property so much.

Amazing view and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. Hot tub, 2 fire pits and private access to the beach, whats not to like!

We were 13 ppl and we fit in very nicely. Enough beds for everyone. The city of Langley is a 20 minute drive and worth a look for a couple of hrs.

John (property owner) is very cool and is also available for most of the day if you need any help.

Sweet Spot for Group Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Gathered up 10 of my friends and headed to Whidbey Island for the weekend. Upon my arrival, several guests had already arrived and immediately began telling me all the amazing parts of the house and property. It's a good sized home and one of the most beautiful, well designed properties I've experienced. There is a fire pit just down away from the home, with a lovely wrap around bench, closed in for privacy by a ring of evergreens. The outside hot tub is at the bottom of the deck and we loved it! Day and night, it was well used. And stairs all the way down to the water with another firepit there. It's a trek and not for the gingerly. Be prepared for a heart pumping journey on the way up. As it goes, we spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Whether you were cooking or not, the whole crew packed in as that's what you do when you have so much space!

The bedrooms were generous and the bathrooms plenty. There is a huge master suite on the top floor - the only room up there. Equipped with a deep jacuzzi tub and private balcony. The main floor consists of one bedroom on the east side of the house and private bathroom. There is a shared bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, dining area with long table and the living room which contains 3 couches. Plenty of room to watch a movie or catch the game. The lower floor has 2 rooms each with their own door, private bathroom and door out onto the patio and closest to the hot tub and firepit. I think the downstairs mattresses need some upgrading. The queen bed in the north room sank right into the middle and the pull out sofa definitely needs replacing. We ended up pulling the mattress off the sofa bed, off the 2 rollaways, and grabbed the 2 other mattresses to make comfortable sleeping arrangements on the floor for 3 in our party. Otherwise there would have been some aches and pains in the AM. There were plenty of blankets and pillows for everyone.

The kitchen was well stocked, although we never found any tongs and it definitely needs knives sharpened and heaps more cutting boards. They DO have recycling which wasn't clear as there was only a bin for garbage. Please recycle!

Our party recommends bringing ziploc bags/containers for leftovers. Your own firewood. A robe for the hot tub. Spices for cooking. Maybe your own drinking water. Solid wine bottle opener and a yoga mat to take in the amazing view.

Comfortable and cozy stay for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice comfortable and cozy stay over Christmas 2016. The landscaping and property was well cared for and beautiful in every detail. The smaller holiday touches and decor inside made this extra special and our kids' eyes lit up when they saw a small "Christmas tree" near the entry way. The kitchen was well stocked (although the knives could use some sharpening). The floor plan was perfect for our 3 families of 7 adults and 3 kids. I loved how each bedroom had it's own adjoining bathroom and there was enough separation between the rooms for privacy. Even our two dogs had a water and food bowl just for them! We enjoyed the views of the water and light-filled rooms and watching the deer stroll through the yard in the mornings. The owners were friendly and available for any needs. I'm already thinking about our next trip back!

Fantastic handicap-accessible rental!

  • 5 of 5

It can be very challenging to find a rental house that accommodates someone in a wheelchair, but this property fit the bill perfectly. The main floor was had ramp access, and the bedroom on the main floor has been recently renovated to accommodate a wheelchair - larger doorway, grab bar in the bathroom, etc. The house is in very good shape, beautiful deck and view of the water, plenty of other bedrooms for the rest of the party. We couldn't have asked for a more ideal rental for our group!

Amazing house for a relaxing ladies wine weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 14 ladies stayed at this amazing Whidbey Island home for a wine weekend away. It was a wonderful house to relax in from the spacious rooms to the hot tub to the fire pit to the beach access to the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen. We couldn't have chosen a better gem for our annual ladies weekend. John was amazing to work with. He was always available and very quick with his responses. Thank you for a memorable weekend!!

Perfect. Private. Pretty.

  • 5 of 5

We were on the island for a wedding, and stayed in this lovely house with our three adult children and their partners. The setting alone is worth the price of admission -- it's like your own paradise. But also, this place has everything you need for fabulous cooking and tons of room to hang out. We loved the upper master bedroom, deck, office and bath. The grounds are tremendous, especially the hot tub and badminton. John is awesome as an owner -- prompt and professional, too.
