About Rick and Joan Rusch

Rick and I grew up in Richmond Beach and have loved the puget sound since married in 1986. We enjoy fishing, crabbing and family. We purchased this home to bring our family up to enjoy being right on the water to do these activities with them.

Rick and Joan Rusch purchased this house in 2014

Why Rick and Joan Rusch chose Whidbey Island

We found this property by luck and believe it was meant to be. We love the Mutiny Bay beach and the Useless Bay Country Club. The answer to why is, direct contact with nature, the best beach fishing helps also.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this property and the view of the Olympic Mountains, we were breathless. It doesn't get better than a beach front home and the mountains so close you can almost touch them. And the sunsets are so pretty, its a good way to end the day.

This house is on desirable Mutiny Bay. There is a common park next to the house, so it doesn't feel quite as crowded as other Mutiny Bay homes. It is a nice size beach cottage for a family; not overly opulent like some McMansions. The beach side of the house opens to a court yard with their own sand and easy access to the sandy beach for walking. All the floors are tile which makes it usable for sandy bodies running in and out. The dog had a great time too!

Thanks for sharing!

We enjoyed the residence for it's comfort, floor plan, great views and privacy.

The kitchen had plenty of silverware and cooking equipment, and the furnishings were comfortable. We also liked the yard. We hope to return.

Magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

Rick was able to accommodate a last minute stay for us. The property is well kept and beautifully landscaped. The views are fantastic and the beach is great for walking or playing. Our goal was mostly for quiet time and to check out of the daily grind. This house definitely helped us do that. We managed to walk a couple of miles in each direction but you could easily walk farther if you were so inclined. We cannot speak to sightseeing in the area as we spent our entire time at the house. Rick is a pleasure to work with. You will not be disappointed if you rent this house. We will definitely return.
