4 Bedroom, no bank beachfront getaway on beautiful Sunlight Beach (Useless Bay)
About Whidbey Getaways
We are five siblings, 3rd generation owners. Our grandparents built this cabin in 1962 after searching for the perfect spot for their vacation home. Growing up, we were blessed to visit this amazing place every summer. Many amazing family vacations and celebrations have been had here, making some of our fondest memories. We are all married now with children of our own, who are now making wonderful memories on beautiful Sunlight Beach. It is a very special place for us and we are excited for it to become a special place for you and your family as well!
Whidbey Getaways purchased this House in 1962
Why Whidbey Getaways chose Clinton
This is one of the best spots on the beach! There are beautiful views from both the front and back of the property and it is right on the beach. Just a few steps and a short staircase to get to the sand. Bonfires and s'mores on the beach, walking tide flats for what seems like miles, collecting seashells, watching the Eagles fly above you, clam digging, crabbing, sand castle or fort building, Bocce ball on the lawn, whatever your mood. It's a place where both adults and children will fall in love.
What makes this House unique
Right on the water, beachfront access, and views in every direction. Short drive to the town of Langley known for it's art, historic buildings, boutiques, casual and fine dining with views of the sound, and fabulous bakeries and coffee shops.

Such a great little spot. Water fills your view from the living/dining area and the wonderful patio/deck is steps from the beach, so all your waking hours are oriented around the bay view. The bay is beautiful and always changing and the house fit the needs of this 5-person family perfectly, with plenty of bedrooms, but still a cozy, intimate feel. We'd love to visit again sometime!
Cottage on the beach - can’t beat the location!
Perfect for our family trip of all ages (grandparents to toddlers). The house is cute and well appointed for a group to be comfortable. Sand toys, chairs, etc. we would come back for sure!
Gorgeous expansive view, sandy beach and charming beach cottage
We had a fantastic stay. This was a perfect place and location for our 2 families(and 3 toddlers) total. The kids had a great time digging in the sand and playing with driftwood while we relaxed, played cornhole and went SUPing on Useless Bay. How cool to see people on horseback riding across the flatlands at low tide! Within short driving distance of cute stores and Whidbey Doughnuts, host Sara was friendly and responsive. Very clean space, toys and pantry items were also helpful.
We had an amazing time! Strongly recommend!
We loved the layout of the house. Beautiful ocean view from the living room.
Wonderful deck out back was perfect!
We will be back!! ❤️
Thank you Wendy and family. We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay on Sunlight Beach! It’s wonderful to hear! Hope you do come stay again!
Happy Autumn 🍂�,
Sara and Family
great location, house needs work, too many problems
We rented this house for 8 days for a sister's reunion, so there were 5 adults staying there--and two who live on Whidbey that came over for dinner etc
There is ample parking for 3 SUV's. The location is terrific with fabulous views. The next door neighbors were great. One of the bathrooms is very nicely redone. The deck is large with lots of good furniture. The owner kindly let us check in early. Beyond these items we had a lot of issues.
The entry level has 2 bedrooms and a VERY small bathroom. The tub/shower surround was old, tired and moldy. The water pressure was very poor. There was NO ELECTRICAL OUTLET and initially the owner directed me to use the bedroom outlet. When I explained that my waterpik did not work in a bedroom, and a bedroom with no mirror made blowdrying/styling my hair impossible, and there was a reason we had booked a home with 2 full bathrooms, she credited us $25 a day.
The next level up is a large room with kitchen, dining table and FP seating area. The dining table seats 8 (we are small people and 10 would have been quite uncomfortable). And it is the only table in the house so we were unable to do our traditional jigsaw puzzles--even though the house has a supply of them. The kitchen is OK with a big island but minimum serving dishes and no tupperware type storage at all.. The seating area only seats 4 adults comfortably---more if you like sitting on a cement hearth or lining up on the one couch.
The next level up has 2 bedrooms and a newly redone very tight bathroom. 1 bedroom with king bed has no closet.
The firepit is a divot in the sand.
When we went to use the BBQ we discovered no propane and a tank so old it was illegal. It cost $54 to buy the house a new one for which we were reimbursed with a sorry for the inconvenience. We were just grateful the propane place was still open!
We battled ants every day in the kitchen and both downstairs bedrooms. The owner says everyone on the beach has ants.
The umbrella on the deck does not tilt so prime afternoon/early evening relaxing and dining at the very nice table is impossible unless you like sun glaring in your eyes.
This is the 4th beach house I have rented on Whidbey and I believe this house is seriously overpriced. The owner always responded quickly, but that did not help much.
Magical beachfront paradise in the PNW!
What an incredible stay we had at Sara's place! The house is well-appointed and we had everything we needed for an incredibly relaxing time. There are many thoughtful touches like high quality linens and well-stocked cooking supplies. The house is also quite clean and comfortable. The outside area is an absolute dream - we were on the beach every night, either running on the banks of sand or making a fire for yummy s'mores! And Sara was an incredibly gracious host - very responsive and genuinely kind. What are you waiting for? Go make some amazing memories in this wonderful beach cabin!
