We have lived in Seattle for the past 25 years. Naureen has a background in real estate and Shehryar works at the intersection of art and science. We left no stone unturned in our search for a second home and landed on the west side of Whidbey Island as the perfect destination to escape the hustle and bustle of city life with our 9 and 11 year old sons (Adil & Mikaal) and a Labradoodle (Odie). Wanderlust has taken us to over 25 countries and 5 continents. All of this travel has allowed us to stay in hundreds of hotels, pensions, and B&B’s and we have drawn inspiration from all of them for our own property.
Why Owner chose Freeland
A short 90 minute drive + ferry ride from Seattle makes our place super easy to get to, yet it feels like it's a world away. This specific location on Whidbey Island has some of the most epic views you can get from any location in the Pacific Northwest. The style of house accentuates these views. Bald eagles and deers frequent the property and at night the starry sky is simple mesmerizing.
What makes this House unique
We love the views, access to the beach, the artsy community of South Whidbey Island, great restaurants, and the dryer weather (as compared to Seattle).

Amazing view and thoughtful touches!
This is a great vacation home on Whidbey Island. The view is stunning and we spent a lot of time on the huge deck watching ships and weather come and go. You have a beautiful view of the Olympics and Seattle and Mt. Rainier as well. We saw every type of ship including a submarine! The location is perfect for accessing different parts of the island including Langley, Coupeville, Ebeys Landing, Fort Casey and even Deception Pass is an easy drive. The beach which you access via a short walk and down new wood and metal steps is beautiful, wild and very private. The walk down the beach to Mutiny Bay and then up to the farm stand at Foxtail Farms is fun and we bought beautiful produce there often. The owners have included lots of thoughtful touches that helped make our stay nice including Nespresso pods, wine, caramels, San Pellegrino and Fuji waters. The beds, pillows, sheets and duvets are all new and very comfortable. We went as a family of two adults and two teenagers. We had plenty of space and it was great for each teen to have their own room. There was lots of space on the sectional for all four of us to watch family movies at night and a new flat screen TV. There is a hammock and a swing outside which adults and teenagers loved using. Also I really appreciated that our dog was a welcome guest as well. The only improvement I’d recommend to the owners is to update the bathrooms at some point, especially the showers. Also there were missing screens in the master bedroom which let in a lot of bugs. It’s nice on the island to keep doors and windows open to feel the sea breeze. Adding screens would help. I recommend this property for the beautiful view and thoughtful touches as well as a great location on Whidbey.
What a view
What a spectacular view. You can watch all the ships pass by and in the background are the Olympic mountains. On our last three days in the home, we could see downtown Seattle with Mount Rainier in the background. Wow! Home has lots of windows to enjoy the view and is in a very quiet neighborhood. Has great beach access. Really enjoyed the home.
Thank you James! We’re glad you liked the place as much as we do. Please come and stay with us again!
We've been to many properties on Whidbey and this is our all time favorite. Its lovely to be welcomed with a bottle of wine and chocolate. Next you are struck by the wide open view of the channel with all its shipping traffic. The home is tastefully appointed with comfortable furniture and modern touches. Sparkling clean, well stocked. We always enjoy our stay at this property and will be back. The owners seem to be lovely people from our correspondence with them.
