“Good times and great memories start here!”

Our spacious 2500 sq foot home has been our family’s second home for many years and now that the kids are grown, it's time to share it with others. We designed and decorated it to be perfect for families and/or as a retreat for pals, with charm and artistic touches throughout. Although only an hour from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, the stress of everyday life has a way of lifting away as soon as you arrive! Whether you opt to sip a glass of wine on the rooftop deck and watch the sun set behind the Olympic Mountains, or walk to nearby Mutiny Bay beach, it's all good!

This home is nestled among the trees where eagles gather and deer often pay a visit. Just a quick 2 minute walk across the street, and you have access to your own piece of sandy Mutiny Bay beach. A public boat launch is down the street, where you can launch your boat or jet-ski. If you prefer the peace and quiet of a garden and bubbling waterfall, seek refuge in one of the adirondack chairs by the pond surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers.

This is a perfect home for a couple’s retreat, a family vacation or a trip with friends. There are 2 bedrooms with brand new carpet & 2 bathrooms downstairs, one with a queen & the other with 2 twins. Upstairs, we have a large designer-decorated 'great' room, which is private & includes a queen sofa-bed, 2 window beds and a separate bathroom. The door at the bottom of the stairwell provides privacy for anyone staying upstairs.

The kitchen is fully-stocked, bright & roomy, with new range and refrigerator, and cookware, dishes, spices & the like. The dining table seats 6+, as does the roof top deck patio table. The gas grill and fire pit are also up on the deck, which is a great sunset viewing spot.

Being that it was our family home first, there are lots of activities available for the whole family: arts & craft supplies, video and board games, books, DVD’s, scooters, croquet, lawn darts and badminton. In addition, we have provided beach supplies for you to use while at our home: boogie boards, sand castle “equipment”, beach chairs and an umbrella. You’ll also find entertainment with a SMART TV, a DVD player and wireless internet.

Ample parking on the property for a boat/trailer or RV. Bring your toys and have fun!

Why Mutiny Bay on Whidbey Island?

Whidbey Island is a place that¹s perfect for vacationers and ideal for families. It is one of the country’s largest islands. Only an hour from Seattle and a quick ferry ride across Puget Sound, it’s a paradise for children and a summer haven for adults. Enjoy a multitude of farmer’s markets, art fairs and even the Island County fair. There are tons of activities; beach walks, hiking, kayaking, tennis, fishing, bird watching, wine tasting, antique hunting, garden tours and of course, the soft, warm sand and picturesque beaches.

Mutiny Bay is considered by many to be the PREMIER beach in the Northwest. A huge arc of sandy beach and calm waters, it’s a place to play, relax and meet new friends. It is only a quick 10 minute drive from the ferry in Clinton. There are several state parks and golf courses within easy driving distance. You will be within one mile of a grocery store, hardware store, post office, gas station and many other necessities. You can shop in the quaint boutiques find beautiful antiques, or go wine tasting in nearby Langley, Freeland, or Coupeville.

Dogs will be considered upon advance request. Please inquire. An additional fee is required.

About Kathy Fleming

I am a native Southerner, but moved to Seattle long ago and have no plans to leave now. I've raised two children in this area. We bought Mutiny Bay Hideaway when it was a bed and breakfast and turned it into our family vacation home. We have spent many wonderful summers in this home.

Kathy Fleming purchased this house in 1999

Why Kathy Fleming chose Freeland

Once we decided that Whidbey Island was where we wanted a vacation home, we set out to find the right house. We purchased this house because of it's location, garden and character. Anchors on the shutters and a white picket fence? Perfect! Of our family's Top 10 List of what we wanted in a house, this one met 9 of the requirements. We put a lot of love into fixing up this house. Now that the kids are grown, I want other people to have the same experience of falling in love with Whidbey Island.

What makes this house unique

Bright, cheery & beautifully decorated (with help). Lots of wildlife (eagles, finches, deer, bunnies); peaceful & serene; incredible sunsets; a place to gather with family and friends; and of course the BEACH!

Mutiny Bay Hideaway is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing and wonderful time at Mutiny Bay Hideaway! The home is full of charm that feels well lived in and comfortable. A perfect spot to get away and recharge. The home is very clean and the kitchen well stocked for cooking. The side porch next to the beautiful garden and fountain creates a peaceful spot to read, draw, or take an afternoon nap. I will definately come back!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Ele. I am so glad that you and your friends enjoyed your Girls Weekend on Whidbey Island. You have discovered my favorite garden spot also...besides the beach, watching the cruise ships go by. Please come again!

4-1/2 stars out of 5

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was very good. I was surprised there wasn't a step stool to get into the Mstr Bed. It is very high off the ground and we had to put my mom in the other bedroom as she couldn't get in the bed. I even had trouble. Had to pull myself up. Was also not expecting to have to strip the beds when we were paying a rather large cleaning fee. But it was overall a great house for 3 generations as everyone had their own space.

Owner's Response: Pam, I want to apologize for the lack of stool for the master bed. We had just switched out the existing queen sized bed for that king sized bed and didn't take into account how difficult it might be for some people to get into it. Thank you for your suggestion. We might also just lower the bed! I'm glad that your whole family enjoyed the rest of their stay. Please come again.

Family Gathering at Mutiny Bay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, comfortable home with a well-stocked kitchen. Our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandsons from British Columbia met us there for a two-night stay. It was very roomy and just perfect for the 6 of us. Loved the outdoor pond/garden and the rooftop deck. The walk to the beach was quick. We also enjoyed going to the public beach that was accessible by car. If we ever return to the area we would definitely stay there again.

A Grand Slam!

  • 5 of 5

Our bridge group spent three great days in this lovely home and everything was absolutely perfect. The location is ideal - we had time for a nice walk on the beach and enjoyed the view from the home. When then cards weren't being shuffled, there was time for a nice break on the front porch to listen to the lovely water in the pond. The kitchen was fully equipped (if Kathy didn't have it, you didn't need it) and so well organized. The décor was very pleasant -- New England meets Provence! The beds were comfortable and everything was immaculate. We are checking our calendars for a return visit! 150 Honors (okay - enough with the bridge metaphors) on all counts.

Wonderful home with everything you need for a fun beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is filled with charm and comforts and a fully stocked kitchen which we enjoyed. The beach is a block away and while at the house we enjoyed the beautiful garden area and view deck. Thanks Kathy!

Such a lovely, well equipped home!

  • 5 of 5

We really could experience the care that went into making this a comfortable, relaxing home. Great kitchen, bedrooms, living areas and baths and a nice place to sit outside by the little waterfall pond.
