Set your watch for island time!
Or, better yet, leave your watch at home. The moment you step off the ferry you know you are in a special place. You are on island time now…
Whidbey Island has brought our family years of enjoyment and peaceful getaways from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We have furnished A Home On The Harbor with comfort and simplicity in mind so that you can enjoy the beauty of Holmes Harbor with your loved ones, too.
We love to travel and have stayed in vacation homes around the world, some we would return to and some we would warn you against! Now we have an opportunity to share our home with you and we have set up our beach house in a way that we would be happy to stay in if we were the guests (very clean, quality cooking tools and dreamy beds).
A stay on Holmes Harbor means pancakes on the griddle for breakfast, a walk on the beach searching for sea glass, and keeping an ear peeled for the call of the bald eagle. In the evening, a peaceful sunset kayak ride on a harbor as smooth as glass with curious seals popping up and jellyfish drifting around just under the surface. We just might follow that with a locally inspired dinner at Gordon’s on Blueberry Hill and a toasty fire at night with s’mores and a glass of local wine.
Whether you are a quiet birdwatcher or a seafaring adventurer (or maybe something in between) we are sure you will love Whidbey Island as much as we do. We look forward to hearing from you!
Your hosts, Mishele and Ben
