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.

One of the most beautiful properties we have ever visited. The house is equipped with everything you could need. The outdoor area is beautifully landscaped and view of the water breathtaking! John was available to help us find medical help when some of family came down with the flu which was above and beyond. We sincerely hope to return one day!... Read More

12 of us converged on Harbor Hideaway from all over the country for a milestone birthday celebration, and could not have been more delighted with the location, home, and hospitality we received. All of the information provided on VRBO was 100% accurate with no exaggeration or fluff. Even the photos were not just great photos in the per... Read More

We loved this space! It was large enough for everyone to have their own space when needed but two tv rooms and a large table for family games and fun. Property itself is stunning! ... Read More

We rented this house for wedding guests and family. It was perfect for us, because not only did it have 4 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, but also because one bedroom is on the main floor, with step-in shower, hand rails, and other necessities for our 90+ year old grandmother. Also a ramp into the house. The setting is gorgeous; on the wat... Read More

Our group of 11 girlfriends could not have been more impressed with John's beautiful home and property! Everything was absolutely perfect...from the well equipped kitchen to the comfortable beds to the stunning views and gardens! There are so many thoughtful details around the home specially for renters....labels on drawers, extra blankets/p... Read More

this property is gorgeous, the house is very nice. A few degrees warmer and we could have really used the outdoors more, but we got out quite a bit. The house itself is beautiful, but downstairs beds seem dated. Also, for the high price, too many things don't work at all, or work partly. Windows that can't be opened, a dishwasher that so...

We had a wonderful time at this property. Hot tub, 2 fire pits and private access to the beach, whats not to like! We were 13 ppl and we fit in very nicely. Enough beds for everyone. The city of Langley is a 20 minute drive and worth a look for a couple of hrs. John (property owner) is very cool and is also available for most... Read More

Gathered up 10 of my friends and headed to Whidbey Island for the weekend. Upon my arrival, several guests had already arrived and immediately began telling me all the amazing parts of the house and property. It's a good sized home and one of the most beautiful, well designed properties I've experienced. There is a fire pit just down awa... Read More

We had a nice comfortable and cozy stay over Christmas 2016. The landscaping and property was well cared for and beautiful in every detail. The smaller holiday touches and decor inside made this extra special and our kids' eyes lit up when they saw a small "Christmas tree" near the entry way. The kitchen was well stocked (although ...

It can be very challenging to find a rental house that accommodates someone in a wheelchair, but this property fit the bill perfectly. The main floor was had ramp access, and the bedroom on the main floor has been recently renovated to accommodate a wheelchair - larger doorway, grab bar in the bathroom, etc. The house is in very good shape, beau...

A group of 14 ladies stayed at this amazing Whidbey Island home for a wine weekend away. It was a wonderful house to relax in from the spacious rooms to the hot tub to the fire pit to the beach access to the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen. We couldn't have chosen a better gem for our annual ladies weekend. John was amazing to wo... Read More

We were on the island for a wedding, and stayed in this lovely house with our three adult children and their partners. The setting alone is worth the price of admission -- it's like your own paradise. But also, this place has everything you need for fabulous cooking and tons of room to hang out. We loved the upper master bedroom, deck, offic... Read More

This property and house can accommodate many ages and interests. it is very well equipped, down to two kinds of potty chairs! We had all ages, sizes of folks for a wedding on the Island, and it was wonderful to just gather on the many decks, enjoying the vistas and shoreline. You could not ask for a more incredible way to experience Whidbey Isla... Read More

We had a great time staying here. The owner was very open and answered all our questions about the property prior to the stay. We had some concerns about sleeping arrangements and were able to get that figured out without issue. There is ample room for multiple families to stay at this property. Everything in the house is in good working order. ... Read More

Our large group loved the house itself as well as the beautiful location! We travelled with a group of 15 adult family members/close friends all in our 20s/30s, including 5 couples. The house provided plenty of sleeping space for us, though I would note that we are all quite close and comfortable sharing rooms. The bedrooms are set up perfectly ... Read More

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...

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. ... Read More

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 ... Read More


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. ... Read More
