About Nancy

My husband and I have lived in many places, including beautiful New Zealand, California, and the US East Coast, but the Northwest is our favorite. We are both Puget Sound area natives and are raising our 3 kids in the Seattle area.

Nancy purchased this house in 2011

Why Nancy chose Whidbey Island

This is a special property, a beautiful new beach house which we've outfitted with a little of the old (some family antiques) and a little of the new. A sandy beach, sunsets, lots of activities on a forested jewel of an island, water lapping peacefully while you sleep... what's not to love!

What makes this house unique

Sandy beach to play on

Hot tub to soak in and watch the stars

Pool and foosball table for competitive and/or family/group games

Gourmet kitchen to cook amazing beachside meals

Comfy living room with lots of couches and comfy chairs

Fully wired with everything: great cell coverage, wifi, Xbox, two flat screen wall mounted TVs with cable and DVD players.

Plenty of very comfortable beds to sleep up to 12 in luxury.

A Great Retreat For Your Family or Group

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views! Rooms were all very comfortable. It's clear that the owner cares for the property and has put a a great deal of thought into making it special for their guests. They provided lots of extras, including a game room, a hot tub and recommendations for local food and excursions. If you are planning off-island adventures during your stay we strongly recommend that you read up about ferry schedules and fares. We learned that some take reservations and some don't and some times are particularly busy. We highly recommend this property for anyone seeking to experience an island retreat. Whidbey Island and this home in particular do not disappoint!

Beautiful House, almost stellar experience

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful! We really loved staying there. The rooms are large and comfortable. Five bedrooms means they have actually five bedrooms. It is right on the beach, which the children really enjoyed. We didn't have a stellar low tide, but still we had a lot of beach area to enjoy even with a +1.2 tide. Truly an incredible location! The beach is slightly more accessible via the boat launch up the road, about a five minute walk. Direct access can be difficult if holding a kid or dragging beach equipment down. I'd recommend bringing some firewood up or buying some off the ferry, we lit a fire every night outside and it was very inviting and good way to wind down the day.

We really didn't leave the place, as it was so cozy and accommodating. Toni was responsive to our requests, of which we had a couple – but we had a few snags that detracted from a perfect experience.

We had some issues with expectations – the kitchen equipment wasn't as nice as we thought it would be, we explicitly asked if there was a crock pot and there was not, which made one of our dinners a little complicated. The owner offered to pay for a new one, but we didn't want to leave the house, seeing as we'd have to drive at least 20 minutes to the hardware store to replace. The kitchen equipment is not as nice as I expected, dull knives and such, but I should know better than having too high of expectations.

We also saw that there was a sun umbrella, of which we requested. Toni said it would be delivered by the maintenance person either the first or second day, but it did not arrive as expected. I had to ask a few more times via text to receive the umbrella, and it finally did on the third day. It was a bit of a bummer to not have, as the weather was nice on the first two days and we expected to have it after our communications.

I think I may be coming across as overly negative. The house is gorgeous, the location is gorgeous, and my family and I really enjoyed the place. I would definitely recommend it to others. I wish we had a better experience with the maintenance man bringing the umbrella, but such is life. I'd also recommend bringing up any critical equipment for cooking, but other than that, you're going to enjoy this place.

Delightful weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a delightful Mothers Day weekend, relaxing and enjoying this beautiful home on the beach. The house is well furnished for a party of 12, and the children enjoyed the game room and access to the beach. We would certainly return for another family weekend away.
