About Kathleen Fox

I am from Seattle, but have lived all over the US. I have traveled abroad fairly extensively and would like to provide this hospitality service to travelers from near & far. Whidbey Island is now my permanent home.

Kathleen Fox purchased this studio in 2014

Why Kathleen Fox chose Langley

I decided Whidbey Island is perfect for me and moved here onto this lovely property with the intention to retire here eventually. This home on half an acre is set up for privacy for all, both travelers and myself. The large front yard with a garden (in-progress) is situated next to a nature preserve and chairs are provided for relaxation.

Great spot to stay in Langley

  • 5 of 5

Lovely large room with kitchenette and bathroom, very close to town. Great location, quiet. We discovered the electric hotplate under the sink and so we were able to cook in the little kitchen which had everything we needed for a simple, quick dinner. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks to the host.

Beautiful cottage in Langley and an extremely enjoyable walk to downtown

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Garden Room for two nights and our experience was nothing short of wonderful. The unit has a very comfortable bed, very nice kitchen, and a nice bathroom. Parking is simple. The unit is walking distance to downtown Langley and the rabbits make the walk very enjoyable. In fact, on a walk home after dinner and drinks, we had a family of deer hop 10 feet in front of us to cross the street. We highly recommend this place. Kathleen is an excellent host.

Barebones, Motel 6 accommodations- not even a closet, armoire, or mobile clothes rack!

  • 1 of 5

Clean and bed comfortable. Shower door almost falling off, 3 of 6 light bulbs in bathroom not working (one missing!), no shower gel or soap, about 1/8 can Folgers coffee, no creamer or non sugar sweeteners. No chairs or table to sit outside.

No closet or place to hang clothes was very inconvenient. I left an email for owner to tell her what was missing and that we were out for the evening and when we returned I expected most things to be present. She sent an email saying she had a new housekeeper and perhaps she needed a checklist! She did replace 2 of 3 lights, supplied a decent bag of coffee, cream, sweetner, and soap for bathroom by our return.

We would never recommend this place .

Fortunately we were there a very short time and it didn't ruin our enjoyment of beautiful Langley and Whidby Island.

Please correct that horrible and dangerous shower door and fix bathroom lighting. Also add an armoire or clothes rack for hanging clothes. These are just BASICS. ☹️

Very nice, clean place.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The place had a small fridge and microwave, but no plates. Hospitality was great. When we walked in the door it was very welcoming and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Our first stay in Langley- a very eclectic little town!

Cozy Convenient Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely appointed cottage, spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed and a small kitchen where we could make coffee and tea and have toast or cereal. Lovely grounds. We were on Whidbey for a wedding, spending most of our time at the wedding site. It would have been nice to linger in the grassy yard, sit in the Adirondak chairs and wait to see deer. We would definitely stay here again if we needed lodging on Whidbey. The owner kindly contacted us while we were there to inquire if there was anything we needed.
