You will be amazed at the splendor our beautiful home has to offer. From the spectacular views across Cultus Bay and the Olympic mountains, to the indoor dry sauna and 8-person indoor Jacuzzi, to the community tennis courts--there is something for everyone during your action-packed stay. Plus, if you reserve for a week, the SEVENTH NIGHT IS FREE!
This home feature four bedrooms, including a king-size master suite, two queen-size beds, and two twin-size beds. Send the noisy crowd downstairs to play foosball and watch the game, while the adults can prepare a delicious meal in the well-appointed kitchen. Plus, we just installed AIR CONDITIONING to keep you comfortable on those hot summer days!
Outdoors, the backyard extends all of the way to the canal, with a 40' boathouse that includes power and water. And if that's not enough, stroll a couple blocks down the hill to the community clubhouse that features a wrap-around beach with fire pit perfect for roasting smores after a day relaxing on the beach. Plus for the adventure minded, we have two small kayaks in the storage shed below for your use.
Best of all, you'll enjoy the feel of a tight-knit community of like-minded souls who love the sea, the abundant natural parks, and wildlife all around this amazing retreat.
We have many weddings on the island, so family gatherings are welcome, but no wild parties! The neighbors won't tolerate it.
Check in was very easy. The property is as described, beautiful! We enjoyed the view, the kayaks and the fire table on the patio. The room downstairs was great for a movie night for the whole crew. It was enjoyable for all ages!
Great spot perched above Sandy Hook and Cultus Bay provides forever views to the southwest. Great inside-outside house where activities and living extend seamlessly from inside to out. The 2 story trail from house to boathouse is a bit rustic. A few points where it could be tricky if dark or wet.
This house was really perfect for our getaway. The kids could walk to the beach, play foosball or enjoy the hot tub. Comfortable beds, nicely remodeled bathrooms and good hot water pressure. Downstairs area is perfect for kids stocked with a few toys, games, books and has a TV. Location is incredibly quiet and close to Clinton and Langley. Darrell was a gracious host.
Our first girlfriend trip since the Covid shutdown. This is a great property, beautiful view, very quiet and relaxing.
Overall, the property is nice, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need. The furniture is comfortable, there is plenty of space to hang out, both outside and inside. The beds were super cozy and game room was a lot of fun. The only drawback, was the hot tub, it had a strong chemical smell that permeated the house, which was a bummer, because we really wanted to enjoy that amenity, we also had to open windows throughout the house to air it out. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.
We had a wonderful time coming to Whidbey for my wife’s 40th birthday. This place has a lot of nicer items in the kitchen and new TVs throughout the house. The views were spectacular and the hot tub/sauna indoors was special for us. There were also two kayaks which we lucked out with the weather to be able to use. Darrell was a gracious host and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Our kids loved the toys and game room. We didn’t use two of the bedrooms as much because the girls liked sharing the room with double bunk beds. You could easily have two families visit here. We enjoyed the extra space and the layout of a basement with the kids room and the upstairs with the master with a view. Lovely home and I hope you enjoy a special vacation here as well.
lots of room for the family and pretty views
We enjoyed this home very much, and the comments provided by previous guests accurately described the experience we also had. Very nice linens, towels; well-equipped kitchen; fantastic view of the bay while relaxing by a nice fire table ... would definitely recommend this property! Were not able to use the pool due to poor air quality from recent fires, but we did enjoy using the in-home sauna and jacuzzi. ❤️
Hosts were responsive and property was great. Tried kayaks and fishing out back and the propane fire table is nice with water views .
The best-furnished VRBO I've stayed at; plus the views, the sunsets will make you cry. The owner is a Prince of a man and went out of his way to accommodate us. This is the second time I've stayed in Darrell's home, and it won't be the last if he'll have me back. ---Mike
We had a wonderful few days here on Whidbey. The home is a perfect vacation spot. Super comfortable, hot tub, beautiful deck with amazing view of the water and mountains, plenty of space to spread out and relax. My family was here from different parts of the world and we had a great time together.
Great house and great experience. We had 9 people staying for a week and we were all very comfortable. Loved the water activities, boating and kayaking and fishing. Two decks were perfect - we rotated depending on the sun. Hope to be back soon.
This house was a great fit for our family and grandkids. The layout of the house was nice and spacious. We loved the access of the kayaks and all of the toys, games and books for the kids. The beds were very comfortable and the view was great! We loved the attention to detail with the decor and furniture. Would definitely stay again!
I've spent most of my Whidbey time on either Useless or Mutiny Bay; this was the first-ever on the far south end. I must say, I loved it. The views, the house, the home's amenities - all first class. We spoke to the owners getting advice on things, they both are wonderful. If you are looking for a home where the entire family will be happy, look no further.
This property was impeccably maintained and had all the amenities that one could want, plus some that we never got around to using! Everything was extremely comfortable and very clean. We did notice a dearth of instructions (for the TV, hot tub and sauna) but we figured it all out. Owners were very available for questions, when contacted.
Perfect location for our Girls Weekend getaway. Beds were so comfortable, great dining room table for meals and cozy seating areas for conversations. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable house!
We needed an extended weekend to ‘recharge’. Sandy Hook Vista was the place! From the time we arrived it was like being home. The kitchen is easy to work in, the decks are relaxing and the hot tub is great after a day of exploring. If you are looking for a wonderful place to ‘get away’, this is it. Thank you Darrell and Kim!!
We had a small family reunion here. The house is perfect for this function. The owner is next door and available if any issues crop up. He also recommended a visit to the distillery next door and it was a really great tour and tasting. The view is awesome and the kitchen is fully equipped with all you could ever need. The pantry and refrigerator had plenty of condiments and lots of spices. Coffee was also provided. Our crew also enjoyed the dingy and the sauna and hot tub. A bald eagle was in the tree in the back every day. Loved this place.
Everything was as advertised. Excellent stay. Thx.
What a perfect weekend. Not only did my daughter get married we were able to stay at this beautiful home. Wonderful views and peaceful location. Spotlessly clean when we arrived and much bigger than expected. Easy to find and not too far from grocery stores and restaurants in town. Lots of deer wandering the neighborhood-beware when driving. The views were amazing and the deck had a propane fireplace that was wonderful as the evenings are still a bit cool. Large bedrooms, comfy beds, plenty of towels and blankets and lots of games - not to mention hot tub and sauna. Nice, friendly neighbors too! We wanted for nothing. It was a really memorable weekend. Can't say enough about this beautiful home. Highly recommend!
The views from this property are amazing! The home is spotlessly clean ——perhaps too much so as the hot tube had too much chlorine in the water which made that part of the home difficult to be in. The hot tube wasn’t important to us so I don’t consider that situation a negative. Beds were comfy. My family had a very good time at this property.
Our family stayed in this house for four nights for a family wedding. Each person remarked on how well stocked the home was, the cleanliness level, and how comfortable the beds were. No guest had any negative feedback to leave!
This was our first visit to Washington and we loved our stay at this home. The area is beautiful and easy drive to many great locations.
This is our second year renting this house for a girls' weekend and we love it. Plenty of space to spread out, relax, play games, and then come together for a meal. It is also easy to get down to the beach to explore and have fun.
Beautiful views from the balcony, only 15 minutes from various points of interest around Clinton, Langley, and Freeland. Game room has lots of movies, darts, Foosball, and other things to keep friends and family entertained. And at the end of a long day it was so nice to relax in the sauna or jacuzzi.
This place is outstanding and the owner is excellent, kind, honest and friendly.
Your house was a wonderful and perfect place for my family to stay!!! At the end of August, we had all had an incredible busy summer and were just ready to be somewhere to relax and unwind!!!!! Your house was the perfect house for us all!!!! It was just the right size for my family of 3 grown children and 2 grandsons and my husband and myself. We all stayed in deluxe comfort in your spacious and beautifully appointed home!!!! We had a chance to reconnect, laugh, have fun, eat delicious food, explore the island and just have a great time together!!!! We made wonderful memories that we will cherish forever!!!! Thank you so much!!!! PS As soon as we got back, we jumped right back into our daily mode of being super busy again, so sorry for the delay in my review!!!!! It is good that we still can think back and remember all the fun we had and can look at all the wonderful pictures we have to remind us too!!! Again, thanks so much!!!!! Jennie Diamant
This lovely home is huge. Yes, huge!. Larger than we expected from the description. The kitchen is a dream, lots of very nice items for use. We especially appreciated how clean everything was. It's immaculate. Everything we read in the reviews was true. It's an exceptional property.
Nice home for large family, lots of entertainment for the kids.
A lovely place to stay, very spacious, with all the amenities of home, a real family friendly house with gorgeous views and also near Langley and other places of interest.
This home is amazing. As beautiful as these pictures are, the real thing is even prettier. The view is breathtaking. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the tide as the resident eagle soared past and the mountains in the distance changed color. Lots of stars at night. It's important to know this property is a home, not a house. The furniture is very comfortable, especially the beds. The kitchen is fully stocked, including the basics in the fridge. Everything you need (Colorful straws?! You guys are the best). There are games...even bathtub toys for the little ones. We enjoyed the 2 kayaks down in the boat house. I can't speak about the TV because we never turned it on...better things to see out the front window. Lots of houses nearby, but our stay was very quiet. And the neighbors even greeted us when we saw them! There are deer wandering around--very sweet. The owners are a dream to work with, and very well organized, even down to restaurant recommendations. We had a small problem one day, and they responded very quickly. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this home without hesitation to anyone looking to stay in South Whidbey.
Overall an amazing property. Well appointed kitchen. Comfortable beds. Plenty of parking. Quiet location close to town. We did run out of toilet paper and could not find any extra wash cloths. We will be back next year!!
Our leadership team stayed here for our annual retreat. The house was immaculate with all the amenities. Beautiful views. Wildlife, Quiet. Fun game room. The Foss Ball tournament was a hoot. We got a lot done, bonded, and had a wonderful time! The CEO
Would stay here again!
We really enjoyed the location, view and accommodations exactly what we needed.
great vacation house overlooking a calm bay, with easy walk down steps to a dock and a neighbor running a legit distillery. was too cold to enjoy the pool but maybe next time. everything was well-prepared and clean and kitchen was appropriately well-stocked.
Amazing property to complete our visit to the Seattle area. Our family thoroughly enjoyed everything from the foosball table to the boat house and kayaks. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us
This house is excellent for a weekend retreat. Lots of room for everyone to spread out or hang out together upstairs for games a visiting. The location is quiet, but close enough to town for shopping and wine tasting. The hosts were easy to work with and very responsive to questions. My friends and I enjoyed our stay in Sandy Hook and will be back!
We spent the long holiday weekend at the house. It was everything we hoped for. The place has two different, very spacious levels that would easily accommodate up to 6 adults and 4 kids. The views were incredible, and the location near the the walk-to beach, along with short drives to Langley and the Clinton ferry terminal were ideal. The owner was very responsive and helpful. The house had high quality furnishings, and it had all the necessary cooking items. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
With a very short ferry ride, we felt like we were miles away at Darrell and Kim's amazing home in Sandy Hook. While we were impressed with the photos, their home was better than the photos in the sense that it was even cozier than we anticipated. We rented their home over the NYE weekend with two families - 4 adults and 3 children - two of the children under the age of two. We had more than enough room. The only challenge were the open chairs but with enough supervision, they were not an issue - just something to consider if you have a crawling baby! The house is BEAUTIFUL - this home brought back the feeling as to why VRBO and Airbnb started in the first place - we had the opportunity to enjoy someone's home. This was not a rental in any way - it is someone's beautiful and cozy home that is very well taken care of and we wanted to make sure we respected it as such. The two parts of the house make it perfect for large groups - as the children played downstairs, some of the adults could relax upstairs - we had so much space to keep everyone happy - the house was extremely clean - the beds extremely comfortable...our stay was warm, comfortable and so fun - we had everything we could possibly need, we cannot wait to come back in the summer to take advantage of this beautiful little nook of Whidbey.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sandy Hook! The house is perfect for a large family gathering - with a lower level media/play/bunk room for the kids. Wonderful kitchen and gathering places upstairs and balcony/porch with a view of the water and boats below. The house even has a hot tub and indoor dry sauna. Darrin was very responsive and kind in answering all of our questions before we arrived. Lovely spot, and beautiful home.
It was great to stay in the calm of the Sandy Hook community. This house was well appointed, very clean and pleasantly decorated. Highly recommended for family, especially ones with kids (there were plenty of toys and activities to keep them entertained).
This was exactly what we needed! A group of us were coming to Whidbey for a wedding, and this house fit everyone in without a problem. With two large common areas and four bedrooms, there's plenty of room to relax and hang out. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, which was great. It's clean, comfortable and in a spectacular location with amazing views and access to the water. The kitchen had ample space to put food away and do some cooking, and there was a grill on the deck, which definitely came in handy. We all felt at home and truly enjoyed our stay.
Overall experience was great! Would come again. Owner was wonderful to work with. Made sure kiyaks were at boathouse for my grandkids to use.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property on South Whidbey Island! Lots of room and spaces for kids and adults to eat, play games and hang out! Appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, remodeled bathrooms, grill, and outdoor gas fire pit for enjoying the beautiful evening sunsets! The kids loved the downstairs foosball table, and the kayaking was great. Wish we had more time to enjoy the house and all the things to do on Whidbey. Looking forward to planning another trip here in the future!
We loved our stay! Everything is brand new, the decor was modern, the kitchen was well stocked, owners were very responsive and the view is amazing! Love the outdoor gas fireplace! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
My family of 4 with 2 young kids, my sister and her family of 3 with one young child and my parents all very much enjoyed staying at this wonderful home on Whidbey Island. A lot of thoughtful touches, such as a fan in every room, a well-stocked kitchen, gas fire pit on the back deck with a gorgeous view of the water and mountains, beautiful furnishings, and comfortable beds, made us feel relaxed and spoiled. We enjoyed the hot tub as well and walked every day down to the community beach and playground where the kids could run around and search for shells. The layout worked especially well for us with the kids playing and sleeping downstairs while the grown ups could stay up late (or sleep in) and watch movies upstairs. Thank you Darrell for sharing your new home with us. We hope to visit again soon.
We have spent a lot of time on Whidbey but this is the best experience we've ever had. This property is so well appointed, every detail was considered, from the bed linens to the local coffee. The beds were completely comfortable (and we're all picky). The space was so well set up, we spent hours on the deck, watching the view and hours on the beach, clamming, playing. The kids were able to be real kids, on the dock, in the water. The adults enjoyed the hot tub and sauna. The property was also perfectly cleaned when we arrived - again rare and we are picky. I could not recommend this enough for families or groups looking to enjoy a retreat from it all.
Our group was looking for a place to stay to relax and recuperate after our 24 hour race that ended on Whidbey Island. Darrell's place was perfect. We arrived to find the keys in the locked box near the door. The place was just as clean and organized as it appeared in the pictures. All 10 of us slept comfortably, and our group fell in love with the indoor hot tub and sauna. We also took full advantage of the outdoor grill to cook up some burgers, and stayed outside on the patio most of the evening to take in amazing view of the sunset. We also found it very easy to communicate with Darrell. He helped us make adjustments prior to our stay, as well as responding to our questions about the house while we were there. Nothing but good things to say. Overall, this spot exceeded our expectations -- we'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a larger house on the island!
Darrell and Kim are such kind souls and made my entire 7-day vacation with my family truly unforgettable. They are super generous and made the home as comfortable and well-equipped as possible. From the moment you walk into the house, you're greeted with beautiful large windows that overlook the canal. We arrived right when the sun was setting so I immediately got that wow factor. The furniture and design of the home is perfectly modern, trendy and comfortable in every room. The upstairs was perfect and we enjoyed our family time there over lunch on the dining table that fit all of us perfectly. Downstairs had foosball, huge sofa set, tv, 2 bedrooms (one with 2 sets of twin bunk beds and the other with a queen bedroom) and a bathroom. Also the spa room with the nicest in-home sauna I've ever sat in and a hot tub that was perfect to enjoy every night. Our routine the entire time there was brunch in the fully equipped kitchen, relax on the double decker patio (kids downstairs and adults upstairs), swim time, grill for dinner and relaxed with the fire pit on the deck. There's a park that's around the canal (3m drive) where we also played tennis, basketball and football. It was seriously perfect in every way, every day for my family. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming again!
