Clinton House Rental Photos and Description

A Self Sustaining Beachfront Family Vacation Home

On, arrival you will find generous parking. Four flights of steps divide you from the rest of the world. A tram will carry your baggage down to the two-bedroom turnkey vacation rental nestled on the hillside of the southern tip of Whidbey Island. The natural rural setting combine the quaint appeal of a Puget Sound waterfront cottage community with miles of secluded beach to comb for agates and shells or any other water passion. Conveniently located 15 minutes from Langley or the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry, this is a perfect place to enjoy all the activities the island offers. The size and infrastructure of our home limits us to allow a maximum of 4 adults or a family of 6. For the courtesy of our guests this home is a non-smoking, non-pet facility, and Not ADA accessible.

Possession Beach House has been a Vacation Rental since 1999. We have had guest from around the world and enjoy return guests, some of whom have been returning for a decade. The home is a work in process. Originally built in 1942 and remolded in 1968, I bought into a place that needed every board to be replaced and have been doing so piece by piece with my guests enjoying the steady progress. Of course there are signs of the change throughout the home as the transition is made. Cracks from leveling the house when a new foundation was installed and areas sorely needing renovation while patiently waiting their turn. All in all, the home is a comfortable cozy place you will feel at home in. Eclectic, yes; modern designer home, not yet.

Indoor; on the first floor, you will find the main living area with living room, dining, kitchen, laundry, bath, and spare room. The living Room has been renovated boasting windows that surround the room with view. There is a 41” flat screen, Smart DVD player, and Wi-Fi. The Dining room/kitchen area seats six and has a roomy “one butt” kitchen. The kitchen had most everything you will need to cook, bake, and feed your family. Bottled Drinking water is provided. Regrettably to some, there is no dishwasher. There is a single rollaway and a hideabed great for kids but uncomfortable for adults. Lol

Surrounding the home outdoors there is a fireplace that anchors the expansive deck. Among the amenities we have; Charcoal BBQ, outdoor dining table and chairs for 4, 4 adirondack chairs, Propane heater, propane crab cooker.

On the second floor there are two bedrooms; a front room with queen bed and a view of the sound and a back bedroom with a queen bed and a half bath.

On the ground floor; the home is in progress… there will be; a future Sunroom; entertainment room, foyer, ¾ bath, and interior stairway to the rest of the home.

Outside; there is a lawn and lower deck. And of course the beach! Amenities include; a picnic table a couple loveseats and a small row boat*.

Risk and responsibly is incurred with use.

Quaint beach house at the south end of Whidbey Island.

  • 3 of 5

Possession point beach house is right on the beach. You and crab and fish (when in season) directly in front of the house. The weather was great and the locals islanders very friendly. A nice family time.

Waterfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

So glad we chose Bruce's rental as we definitely experienced waterfront living at best. We clammed on the beach and fished off the deck on the house. We will definitely be back for the crabbing season!

Great Waterfront Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Two of us arrived to a clean home at waters edge. The next day off the deck was a gray whale taking his time.

Lots of glass to enjoy the night view. High tide and water is up to the bulkhead.

We had fun.

Great beach house for fishing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great weekend at this charming beach house located in a quiet corner of Whidbey Island. We fished on the beach in front of the house in the morning and caught some nice Coho salmon which we grilled for dinner on the deck, overlooking Puget sound and Mt Baker. A bait shop conveniently located a couple hundred yards down the beach contributed to our success. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes to be on the water and particularly those who like fishing and crabbing right off the beach.
