Why Kathy Gersch chose Whidbey Island

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!

NOT Wheelchair Accessible

  • 3 of 5

This property is very nice, with lovely views, great views, nice location, and well equipped. However, although it is advised as, and confirmed by emails, this location is not "accessible". The house is accessed by a series of steps, or by a "ramp" (photo included). The ramp was partly under water, overgrown with bushes, muddy from the rain, and so narrow my wheelchair would not fit even if the other objections were corrected. To reach the house, I needed the assistance of three adults and my own portable ramp to go overland. I then used my ramp to get up the next two series of steps. Once inside, I was able to access most of the main floor, with the notable exception of the only available bathroom. Although we all had a good time, I can't recommend this property for wheelchairs.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback. We have multiple wheelchair bound guests every year (several that are repeat guest too), but all wheel chairs and physical challenge levels are different. We are sorry that you had difficulty with the ramp. Based on your feedback we do plan to widen the ramp since while others have found it accessible you had challenges and we want it to be a good experience for all. Unfortunately, you arrived after a week of record flooding and rainfall in the region which of course exacerbated the condition outdoors. The best doors are the side which is flat or the back which is two wide steps and a double door. We do not recommend the front door for wheelchairs. Again, thank you for your feedback.

Beach Front Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful family reunion with 3 adult children and their spouses and a grandchild. Our stay was perfectly wonderful in this great house. The location is fantastic, set back off a main road which makes it quiet, and a very spacious outdoor living area that easily accommodated everyone. The beach front location was perfect for viewing the nightly sunsets and the changing of tides. We enjoyed watching 2 bald eagles fish for breakfast every morning. Very highly recommended!

HOME AGAIN

  • 5 of 5

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!
