About Mark and Colleen

My wife, Colleen, and I met on Whidbey Island many years ago. We have lived in different parts of the country over the years, but always called Whidbey, home.

We live a few miles from The Hideaway, but will never 'bother' you while your are enjoying your stay. If you need something, anything, we are just a phone call away!

Mark and Colleen purchased this house in 1994

Why Mark and Colleen chose Whidbey Island

The South West side of Whidbey Island is very charming, beautiful, rural, and not that far from Seattle. There is a strong community presence and quite a strong artistic pulse, which we thoroughly enjoy. We chose our location 'up' from the water, because being right on the water can be windy and cold, even in the summer! We also enjoy the privacy, and that's hard to find living on the waterfront. Too many other houses!

What makes this house unique

We have a very loyal and large base of people who have used our place over the past 20 years. They tell us it's like a second home to them. We have tried to make all our guests feel that way. Because it is on an acre of land it also offers an abundance of privacy, vegatation and wildlife (Deer, eagles, pheasant, rabbits, etc) along with a great water and mountain view. Our birdfeeders bring in all kinds of interesting birds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We celebrated my husband's first Fathers day here - what a perfect spot! Farmer's Markets, bike rides, a walk on the beach and beautiful views . . . can't wait to return!!!

Cozy home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were able to stay in the Bush Point Hideaway as a quick getaway for our spring anniversary. The pictures were very true to the property and the hot tub was very private. The home was so cozy and relaxing with the fireplace. Having written instructions for the appliances, heat etc. is always so helpful. We fed the birds and watched the sunsets each night. The bed was also comfy. It is always easier to relax when you sleep well. We love the south Whidbey area with all of the trails, beaches, and great food. Mark was timely with responses and information as well as very easy to work with. We both would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Wonderful Anniversary Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Mark and Colleen, for the beautiful little cabin to stay in! The privacy was just right, the view amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed the coziness of the place. Everything was in perfect order. This was our first time using VRBO and we were so impressed, we will use it again! When we come back to Whidbey Island, we'll be sure to reserve this with you again. The weather was perfect, the wildlife was fun to watch (birds, squirrels, rabbits, deer) and we had peaceful nights' sleep the whole weekend! Thanks again for the perfect place to stay!

Excellent! We hope to come back again!

  • 5 of 5

It was an awesome vacation on awesome property, in a comfy little house on a bluff with stunning views! The wildlife we viewed from the deck was incredible. The sunset views from the hot tub were breathtaking. The location was fabulous. Everything was exactly as in the photos or better! The only thing I'd consider doing would be to add a ceiling fan in the master bedroom as it gets stuffy on hot days, and a brighter light as it was quite dim in there and difficult to see everything in our suitcases. Still, neither issue was a deal breaker and we truly hope to return again next year! Best vacation ever!

Beautiful, Warm Place

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to Whidbey Island. This place overlooked the water. The cottage overlooks the water. The jacuzzi was a great pleasure. I could not pick a better place to relax.

Great view, easy to relax

  • 5 of 5

First off, the care and communication from Mark makes you feel at ease, no worries. The house is in a great location on the Southern end of Whidbey. Huge windows. The view is amazing, you can't help but relax. The hot tub is very relaxing on a cool night. We fed the birds both mornings we were there and watched them for hours. Short walk to the beach where we spotted a Bald Eagle on the lighthouse.

Instructions around the house were helpful and easy to follow. Great wifi.

Thank you Mark for offering up your home to us.

Wonderful cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

The view from the front windows can't be beat. And on top of the view, the cabin in outfitted with everything you need for your home away from home, down to very thoughtful details. Plus, south Whidbey has several huge, wonderful off-leash dog parks for your canine companions. We had such a relaxing, peaceful stay. Highly recommend it!
