Bald eagle sightings, forest drives, and sunsets that stretch across the sound define your stay at one of our Whidbey Island rentals. From kite festivals to highland games to celebrations that honor the region's Native heritage, there's something here for everyone.
Where Is Whidbey Island?
Our Whidbey Island vacation rentals are idyllic in location, situated on the northern-most boundary of the Puget Sound, nestled between the Olympic Peninsula
, Camano Island, and Seattle
just 30 miles north.
The 55-mile island is comprised of five communities - Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Greenbank, Freeland, Langley, and Clinton. Claimed to house Puget Sound's largest artist colony, the region supports a mixture of both art galleries and outdoor recreation.
Things to Do on Whidbey Island
Saltwater coastlines and old-growth forests await you during your stay in a Whidbey Island cabin rental. Try your hand at sailing at Oak Harbor Marina
or kayak into sea lion waters along the Cascadia Marine Trail. Fish for salmon at Bush Point or dig for clams at Dave Mackie Park.
Book a whale watching tour in search of majestic gray whales or hike into three freshwater lakes at Deception Pass State Park
. Deception Pass itself offers striking views and photo opportunities from a seemingly mile-high bridge over cliffs and islands. Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve is a lovely destination, too, combining history and pastoral beauty with dramatic bluffs that stretch into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Day Trips from Whidbey Island
Take the ferry to Port Angeles
to pick fragrant bushels at the Washington Lavender Farm or make the trek to Port Ludlow
to travel by kayak through Ludlow Bay and into San Juan Islands
territory. Port Townsent is a hop, skip, and a jump away (by boat and car), boasting gorgeous Victorian buildings and shopping districts.
This unique coastal region is the inspiration of countless artisans - from painters to poets - and is sure to ignite your next great escape with passion and raw beauty. Book one of our Whidbey Island rentals for your next Pacific Northwest getaway.
