About Nancy

My husband and I have lived in many places, including beautiful New Zealand, California, and the US East Coast, but the Northwest is our favorite. We are both Puget Sound area natives and are raising our 3 kids in the Seattle area.

Nancy purchased this house in 2011

Why Nancy chose Whidbey Island

This is a special property, a beautiful new beach house which we've outfitted with a little of the old (some family antiques) and a little of the new. A sandy beach, sunsets, lots of activities on a forested jewel of an island, water lapping peacefully while you sleep... what's not to love!

What makes this house unique

Sandy beach to play on

Hot tub to soak in and watch the stars

Pool and foosball table for competitive and/or family/group games

Gourmet kitchen to cook amazing beachside meals

Comfy living room with lots of couches and comfy chairs

Fully wired with everything: great cell coverage, wifi, Xbox, two flat screen wall mounted TVs with cable and DVD players.

Plenty of very comfortable beds to sleep up to 12 in luxury.

Very Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. There was plenty of room for the kids to play and plenty of activities to keep them occupied. We had a bonfire our last night and enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends stayed here for a long weekend and found it a perfect place to get away, relax, and have fun. The amenities provided are great. The view is amazing -- we all woke up each day and marveled at it. The space is really perfect for a group -- nice common areas for meals and hanging out, but enough space to have peace and quiet alone. We had everything need to cook, too. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed spending New Year's weekend here with our family. The house was just as described in the listing. When we arrived the house was very clean, the lights and heat were on to greet us. Prior to our stay there was always a prompt response to any questions we had. The house was perfect for the adults and grandchildren! The bedrooms are very comfortable. Every room in the house has a beautiful view. The kitchen was great for cooking big family meals. It was a very cold and blustery weekend so the fireplace and ample comfortable furniture in the living room was perfect for cozy relaxation. The large screen was perfect for watching football games. We enjoyed the most amazing sunrises and sunsets! We would be happy to stay at Whidbey Beach Retreat again!

Our stay was the perfect way to start 2017!!!

Spacious and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time here. More than enough space for our family of 7. We found everything in the house to be as described. The kids loved the gaming tables and beach. Gorgeous view of Mt. Rainer and the Olympics. I can't imagine anyone not loving this property.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 9 (6 adults, 3 kids) to enjoy our Thanksgiving getaway! There was plenty of space for everyone, ample seating, and you can't beat the view of the mountains from the hot tub. The game room in the garage and tv area upstairs were enough to keep us entertained when we weren't enjoying the view, the gas fireplace, or exploring the island. The house was well maintained and stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, and we enjoyed how quiet the area was. We would love to return one day!

The listing was exactly as described and special in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely gorgeous and well-equipped. It truly is a perfect balance of upscale, yet comfortable. Being right on the water with the sound of the ocean and those priceless views was outstanding. The owners were remarkably thorough and on point with communication throughout. Dealing with them in fact, was one of the highlights. They were kind, understanding, and very helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
