Interaction with Guests
Baby Beach house is set up for privacy, self-service arrival and departure. No need to have me there. I can meet you if you request, but otherwise feel free to enjoy our house as your own. I live about 20 minutes away by car and can come if needed. Please bring directions and key location with you. Located in the itinerary, please print out as you might not have access to it on your mobile at arrival. We are the yellow beach house with own driveway.
Quiet, peaceful neighborhood of second beach homes with weekenders and some full time islander residences. Walking distance to town and local beach park with dock, but wild enough for wildlife sightings. Usually the houses around us are empty second homes.
10 minute walk to the free Island bus. Best to have a car.
Other Things to Note
Truly great water view, wildlife and birding, walk to town, close to cute shops, quiet.

*If you have a dog please check for the lawn before you leave. We have a mowing service, so it's important the lawns are clear of dog evidence.

*The house comes equipped with bedding linens, towels, dish towels, and coffee maker. We try to keep it stocked with tinfoil, zip lock baggies, all the soaps (hand, washing machine, dishwasher, and dish soap; there are shampoo bottles as well), paper towels, and coffee filters. If some of these are used up and we miss seeing it, we apologize in advance. Please let us know. We often have charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid on hand for the BBQ, but you should bring some too.

I live on Whidbey Island in nearby Clinton and have lived in New England, North Carolina, Marin County, Oakland, Central America, Mexico, and Japan. I went to UC Berkeley and Mills College. I love to share our beach house with others so they can taste the Whidbey beach life. I don't live at the house and may not meet you unless you request it. but I am happy to share Island tips to make your stay more relaxing and peaceful. Just being there doing nothing is a relaxing experience! Check in is easy and self serve. Welcome to Whidbey Island.
