About the owner: I am a retired high school level French teacher, loving travel and the beauty of the gardens and architecture of Europe. The creation of Sunlight Seascape has been my passion and joy! As a child, I spent free, endless summer days on this beach, bay, and pasture learning how to swim, dig clams, build forts, and ride horses. Capturing the natural beauty of the sea, land, and spacious sky was my inspiration in Sunlight SeaScape’s design and construction. Building began on the property while I was teaching advanced French classes. The passions of nature, freedom, and culture blended together in the creation of this beautiful place.
Why the Owner Chose Clinton, WA, USA:
I love this Useless Bay, Sunlight Beach and surrounding pastures and mountain views. I love sharing this property and safe, friendly and stunningly beautiful Whidbey Island with my guests who also appreciate its beauty and precious resources for access to Nature. I began designing beautiful gardens and simple, exquisite interior spaces to connect with their natural settings. This property inspires me each morning as I breathe the clean, fresh air and experience the abundant beauty of mountains, sky, ocean and activity on the beach. Pastures and forests are our land constant while dragonflies and hummingbirds soar. Sometimes a baby otter will bob its head in Useless Bay as ships pass in the straits. Sunsets in the big sky complete amazing days in all seasons. As I grew up and become a nature lover, I will always love sharing Sunlight SeaScape on Whidbey, the beautiful Northwest getaway I get to call home.
