About Mimi

This house was designed and built by Murdock and Mary Ellen MacPherson in 1978. Murdock developed Sandy Hook Yacht Club and saved the best lot for his family vacation home. The MacPherson family has since grown to include children and grandchildren who all contribute to it's evolving character. We are all very excited to share this fantastic property and adventure with you!

The picture above is us cooking and making a big family meal in the kitchen. Something we love to do as a family!

Mimi purchased this house in 1976

Why Mimi chose Whidbey Island

This lovely beachfront house is located on Cultus Bay. Enjoy a beautiful array of sunsets over the Olympic mountains, wild life, sea life and the beauty of Puget Sound anytime of the year. The house is furnished and equipped to handle any type of vacationing; from the romantic weekend getaway to the summertime family vacation.

While you feel tucked away in quiet community, you are close to shops and restaurants, 10 minutes away from the Mukilteo-Clinton Ferry, the drive time to downtown Seattle is 1 hour IF you time the ferry and you have no traffic. So plan 1 1/2 hour still depends on traffic!

What makes this house unique

You can't get any closer to the water! The beach and Puget Sound just steps away from the house, you will find breath taking sunsets, views of Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains and the beach.

Relax on the large entertaining deck overlooking the beach, Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Enjoy incredible sunsets while you roast marshmallow's at the fire pit!

fun times with friends

  • 4 of 5

GREAT location and good layout of house. Excellent deck and access to rocky beach. Easy parking. Pool table! Games! Lots of towels and good amenities (shampoo, toiletries, etc.). Could have better kitchen supplies (baking sheets, baking dishes) but this was a minor issue.

loved the walks along the beach

  • 3 of 5

A lovely place - however, visitors should note that the upstairs loft is accessible only by a spiral staircase with a very small entrance door, making it difficult to enter. We ended up sleeping on the deck instead, which was very nice in the warm summer weather. We were also disappointed that we were not allowed to have guests visit us for a few hours during our stay, out of concerns that the neighbors might be disturbed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Mac's Landing. It was also nice to meet you. I'm sorry you were disappointed. I am very clear on line describing the loft I also include pictures of the loft. It is described again in the house information packet you receive. Next regarding guests again I am very clear on line and in my house information packet about parties at our house. I don't mind if a few guests come over but As you stated there would be 20 or more guests. The house is on septic and can not handle that sort of volume. Secondly I highly respect my neighbors and community. As stated our home is not a venue. I know you asked if Holly who lives in Langley could come and look at the house. I responded to you that I was available and would be happy to show Holly the house. I never heard from Holly.

Great for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our week-long stay at Mac's Landing. It began with the warm welcome of a box of chocolates and continued throughout our entire stay. Our family members included children ages 9 mo to 5 years, their parents, and two grandparents as well as two small dogs. We found the house to be very well taken care of and quite comfortable, much like being at home. We did not lack for anything. The kitchen provided everything we needed to prepare our meals, both in terms of pots, pans, bakeware, and eating utensils. The fenced yard was great for keeping track of the children and dogs and the large deck with table was perfect for dining outside. Everyone enjoyed the location of the house on a beautiful beach which allowed for many activities such as looking for sea life when the tide was out and putting our canoes in the water when the tide was in. There was a variety of wildlife to be seen at all times during the day including deer, eagles, heron, geese, seagulls, and seals. The children also enjoyed the playground located a few steps away and everyone had fun at the pool located next door. In addition, there were a few games of pool played inside the house in the evenings. We all had a great time at Mac's Landing and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, peaceful, beach experience. You won't find a better place!

Everything we were looking for, for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Hmmmmm....the beach is literally steps from the backyard when the tide is in. There is tons of wildlife around you (Deer, Rabbits, Cranes, Blue Heron, Hawks, Bald Eagles, Otters, etc). We fished and caught fish, We got a ton of clams, and the kids built their own weekend wildlife habitat with all of the sea life they caught on the beach. Having the community pool next door was very convenient as well. The house is great and when we shut down for the day, we watched movies and played some billiards. Really, no complaints here and we plan on returning. It doesn't hurt that we had sun every day we were here and could watch fantastic sunsets over the Olympic Mts.

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view

  • 5 of 5

Beach is readily accessed and the view is excellent. The house and grounds are well maintained. Every room is equipped very well for comfort. The kitchen and supplies are all that you would want or need to cook anything. Pots, pans, bowls, dishes are provided for a large crowd. Would be excellent for a family with children or adult couples. There are rubber boots for walking on the beach and other items for play. Clinton, Langley, and Freeland are within short drives. The Goose grocery market is very large and has very good produce and meats, plus anything you could find at home. My girls and I had a wonderful relaxing time together and really enjoyed the stay.
