5+ Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, sleeps up to 12
My husband and I have lived in many places, including beautiful New Zealand, California, and the US East Coast, but the Northwest is our favorite. We are both Puget Sound area natives and are raising our 3 kids in the Seattle area.
Nancy purchased this House in 2011
Why Nancy chose Clinton
This is a special property, a beautiful new beach house which we've outfitted with a little of the old (some family antiques) and a little of the new. A sandy beach, sunsets, lots of activities on a forested jewel of an island, water lapping peacefully while you sleep... what's not to love!
What makes this House unique
Sandy beach to play on Hot tub to soak in and watch the stars Pool and foosball table for competitive and/or family/group games Gourmet kitchen to cook amazing beachside meals Comfy living room with lots of couches and comfy chairs Fully wired with everything: great cell coverage, wifi, Xbox, two flat screen wall mounted TVs with cable and DVD players. Plenty of very comfortable beds to sleep up to 12 in luxury.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Our Spring Fling April 2019
Our 5 couples, made up of long-time dear friends, spent our 20th Anniversary of our Spring Flings at this Clinton Beach Resort and we had a grand time! The wonderful PNW sunny (little chilly) weather gave us relaxing times on the waterside deck, porch, and hot tub spying otters, herons, eagles, and whales! The inside accommodations matched our outside thrills! We also enjoyed Whidbey's sites. We slept well, ate well, and this resort made it possible for us to enjoy and celebrate quality time together. We will come again! Communication with Betsy was easy and helpful.
Few and minor issues: pool cue tips need repair, Amana oven door needs to close tighter, dishwasher did not release soap one time (could have been our error!), need more 9"X13" glass pans for big groups; need more dining room chairs for table to seat 10 persons, dining table slopes at the ends.
But, we survived and enjoyed our wonderful weekend in a beautiful, accommodating beach house resort! Thank you!
Thanks so much for booking our home and taking such good care of it! We do hope you will return in the future. Thanks for your suggestions. We will be taking care of any items needing attention right away. Thanks again!
Happy Memories at the Beach
This is a great house for a family vacation! We hosted our two children and their families to celebrate my 65th birthday and Easter. We loved all the space, beautiful views and the awesome beach! The weather was even warm and sunny, so there was lots of beach combing, sandcastle building, yard games and making s'mores. We even colored Easter eggs and the little ones loved hunting for them.
Betsy is awesome at responding to any questions and super helpful with suggestions. We had 2 dinners catered and I highly recommend Lis David at Magical Feast. The night everyone arrived we went to Rocket Tacos in Freeland. Wonderful!
I was worried about the rocky beach wall, but we all did fine, and there were two 3 year olds and then grandparents in their sixties. There is the easier boat access down about 3 houses.
Thank you for providing everything a family needs....great kitchen, games and books, beach chairs for lounging, and lots of towels. The grandsons are already asking when can we go back! We would definitely rent this house again!
Thank you so much for staying at Whidbey Beach Retreat and for your kind words! Your group was fantastic to host. Communication with you was extremely easy. The home was left in great condition. Good to hear that you enjoyed the local eatery (Rocket Tacos) and the private chef (Lis David). We are so happy you found the property all you were looking for and look forward to your return with the grandsons!
We had a wonderful four days together in this comfortable and beautiful home. The view is phenomenal!
Thank you Janet for staying at our property with your group and for your lovely review! We are glad that you found the property comfortable and enjoyed the view as much as we do.

Perfect home for the family reunion or getaway!
This house was everything we hoped it would be and more! 5 bedrooms, with 2 master suites on the main floor and 3 more bedrooms upstairs. The older folks stayed down, and we put the young adults upstairs. Room for games, puzzles, and poker! Betsy was amazing, answered our questions in a timely response. Plan on going back! Thank you so much!
Sherie and her family were fantastic guests. We do hope you return as we would be happy to host your family again.
We celebrated our Mother's 90th bday here. It was perfect in every way. Beautiful home. Gorgeous views of the sound, Mt Rainer and the Olympic Mountain range. Could not have been any better than it was. We will definitely be back!
Thanks so much for your generous review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back. Your group took great care of our place and communication with you was great!
Perfect for a girls weekend getaway!
This house was perfect for a weekend getaway with the aunties to celebrate my sister-in-law's baby shower. The house was well cared for, well stocked, and the views were spectacular! Betsy was extremely responsive and helped us find a local masseuse for the mom-to-be. We'd go back in a heartbeat!
Thanks so much for choosing to stay with us Elizabeth. You and your group were perfect guests and we are happy you found everything as you would hope. We welcome you back any time!
Elizabeth's family were excellent guests. Great communication and took excellent care of the home and contents.
