About John Dingman

We purchased this property over 30 years ago; developed it ourselves and raised our children here. We built our new home in 1997, just before moving overseas. This property is so peaceful and relaxing. We have no better vacation destination than returning home to the property we love.

John Dingman purchased this estate in 1985

Why John Dingman chose Whidbey Island

We decided to start Harbor Hideaway because we can schedule our own time at our home and it is ready for our arrival. We enjoy the opportunity to share our home and show-off the wonderful lifestyle we have created. The perfect vacation for us is being at Harbor Hideaway, sharing with our friends and family.

What makes this estate unique

My best time is getting up early, sitting on the porch with the morning brew in my hand, watching the sun rise and the wild life starting their day. There is nothing more enjoyable than the peace and serenity as you view deer, raccoons, rabbits, eagles, seals and even the occasional whale. I have no doubts that I will be greeted in the morning, by one or more of the many animals nature has created. I will always see something to remind me why I love this property so much.

Incredible Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is incredible. We stayed here in June 2016. There were five adults and four children in our group. The layout of the home was perfect for our group providing plenty of privacy for everyone (each room having a bathroom attached), it also has large enough gathering places both within the home and around the property for everyone to enjoy each others company when we were all together. Our children loved to play in the yard and on the beach. The adults loved the beautiful surroundings/landscaping and views. We saw wildlife everyday, including deer (with their fawns), a raccoon, eagles, many seals, an otter, rabbits, squirrels, lots of crabs and plenty of birds. We took a kayak that we took to the beach and as we were out in the bay kayaking, we had plenty of seals pop up all around us. The owner was great to work with and quick to respond to any needs. We would definitely like to stay at this home again sometime in the future.

An Island Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting with great views from the decks. Well maintained property with quiet places to visit discreetly. Perfect get-away location, very private, peaceful and serene. Yet has parks, beaches and shopping close by. Also, John Dingman, the owner, was wonderful to work with.

Views in a truly park like setting!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is incredible. Perched on top of a bluff on the Southeast side of Whidbey Island. As you drive in, the first thing you notice is how tucked away the house is. When you walk in, you are met with nothing but a view of Puget Sound. The main floor has the living room, dining room, kitchen, a bedroom and large deck. All but the bedroom have a view.

The true gem of the property is the multi-level backyard. There are three distinct tiers ending down at the water. The stairs down to the water are an engineering marvel and demonstrates the love the owners have for the property.

We were there for a corporate retreat, but would highly recommend this house during the summer and with kids.

Great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Hideaway was the perfect house for our Girl’s Weekend. The house is clean, well-stocked, and set up for a large group. The view is spectacular! The house is located within an easy drive to everything we wanted to see and do. We would definitely stay again.

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 families stayed there for three nights. The house was beautiful inside and out. It was cozy and elegant, with a beautiful Panamamic view of the ocean/nature. The supplies were thoughtfully stocked, making the stay convenient and comfortable. It was an incredible experience. Everyone wants to come back again another time, perhaps in the summer.

Awesome outdoor spaces

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of adult friends at Harbor Hideaway for a weekend and it was amazing. The views of the water, the two outdoor fire pits, the hot tub, and the expansive yard made this a perfect location for our group. John was extremely responsive, flexible, and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this property to other groups.
