Our guest comments reflect our feelings about this gem of a location. The western views of our tidal bay, Cultus Bay, and the Olympic Mountains are phenomonal, not to mention the gulls, herons, ospreys, hummingbirds, and eagles. We love it here.
This listing in Clinton on Cultus Bay at the south end of Whidbey Island is the downstairs level of a 2 story house, complete with two bedrooms, a kitchenette, a ping pong room, and a small dining/living area. You have your own entrance. We live upstairs, and will share the washer/dryer with you.
Astounding southwestern water/mountain view on beautiful Whidbey Island. Gorgeous sunsets. Located in a community in South Whidbey Island.Large windows frame the views from the kitchen/living room and the two bedrooms.
Just 15 minutes from the WA State Ferry in Clinton, which crosses over from Mukilteo.
Fifteen minutes south of Langley, a sweet seaside town.
We may be able to pick you up if you aren't traveling with a car.
Our home is on a hillside above the channel that connects to Cultus Bay. Herons, eagles, gulls,ospreys, hummingbirds, otters, deer, and more delight us!
You can borrow our double kayaks and launch from our dock if you have kayaked before. If not, if we have time, we may be able to take you out and show you how to do it. Wonderful views.
The space has two queen size beds. One is in a standard bedroom, and the other is in a room that is closed off from the kitchen/living/dining area using permanently installed sliding shoji screens (a shoji screen is a Japanese room divider made with wood and rice paper). Private bathroom with tub and shower. Living room/kitchenette with wood stove; “ping-pong” room . Counter-top cooking.( hot plate, small electric oven, microwave) Outdoor deck facing water and mountains, and dock if you want to moor your boat. Pick-your-own raspberries in season in our front yard. Community tennis court, basketball, kids playground, and pool in summer (pool use costs extra and requires some extra paperwork. Let us know if you want to use the pool). Wireless connection. Non-smoker, no pets.
Twenty minute walk to Island Transit buses, which operate Mon-Friday commuter hours and are free.
We live upstairs, and will share the downstairs washer/dryer with you, and may ask to play ping pong with you!
Guests have access to the entire lower floor of the house, as described above. Guests may prefer using our upstairs entrance, through our garage and a shared hallway, which they are welcome to use.
We love meeting our guests, and will welcome a conversation, a cup of tea, or a walk together, if the guests would like that, and if our schedules coincide. However, we recognize that some of our guests prefer total privacy, and we honor their wishes, too.
We love the view from our home, and we enjoy the beach walk just a few minutes from our house. We adore the exceptional quiet in this neighborhood, the sea air, the birds, and even the deer, though they nibble at our foliage.
A twenty minute walk to an Island Transit bus stop, which operates week-days only. Taxi service is available on the island. And, we will pick you up at the ferry if our schedule allows. Make it clear, when you contact us for a reservation,if you need a pick-up.
We suggest you read our reviews to get a feel for the place and us.
James and Janet are warm and friendly people. We were given thoughtful ideas on excursions based on information we had given them about our interests. The lovely apartment has a wall of windows looking out onto the water and mountains; no matter what the weather is, it is magnificent. It was a peaceful retreat from our busy lives.
My friend and I plan to return.
We enjoyed the views, the walk around town and comfortable space. It was relaxing and beautifully arranged! Very accommodating hosts, available if you need them otherwise out enjoying their own home. We want to come back soon!
What a great place to just sit and think. We had beautiful sunny weather and it's hard to convey the feeling of waking up in the morning with the sun shining on the Olympics in the morning. The house is quiet and has a wood burning stove to keep everything cozy. I loved playing ping pong with my son, so zen. I will be back and I highly recommend for a get away.
One small caveat... if you're on a tight budget you might want to purchase groceries before getting on the ferry. There is a full size fridge, and while I support shopping locally it is a substantial premium.
James and Janet were very gracious hosts. They made sure the place was warm by the time we got there, made arrangements for us to be able to arrive while they were out, and checked in with us when they said they would.
Their place is spacious yet cozy, and looks directly out onto Coltus bay. We were able to get a little fire going, and the Internet worked just fine. There aren't any restaurants right nearby, but there's a full fridge if you want to make some food.
We spent a wonderful weekend at James&Janet's.
The place is lovely and the view is simply stunning. Waking up to this view is a wonderful experience that I wish everyone could enjoy.
We haven't have the chance to meet James, but Janet was a wonderful host. She's very friendly and caring.
The only regret we have is that we couldn't stay longer.
Thanks again James & Janet !
Their title says it all! There was no shortage of "Sunsets, Tides & Herons!" Janet & James are very sweet and hospitable. The day we arrived, a horrendous storm blew through and knocked down a tree leaving us with no power. Not to fear! They had a cozy fire started for us along with necessary candles throughout. Their place is clean, comfortable, and affordable. We only wish we could've stayed longer. Thanks again, Janet & James!
James and Janet were delightful hosts. They have made a unique and very welcoming space with amazing views of Cultis Bay and the Olympia mountains. We enjoyed our morning hike in the forest and will definitely want to visit again.
James and Janet were gracious hosts that allowed us that quiet space we sought from Whidbey. It was a treat to wake up with a gorgeous view of the ocean! Both my friend and I dearly appreciated having two beds so that we could get quality sleep while still having a ladies' weekend away. Thank you.
Great location. Warm welcome. Really cozy with nice views. A deer slept outside our window all night. Went for a short walk and heard owls! Very spacious and really clean!
Very grateful to meet James & Janet, such generous, thoughtful people! And the sunset view, really is sweet!
