Whidbey Island Rentals

Whidbey Island rentals include a wide variety of fabulous waterfront cottages and beach houses. Many feature sandy beaches and fantastic views of the mountains.

Whidbey is the largest of nine islands located in Island County, Washington. Thirty miles north of Seattle, the island sits between the Olympic Peninsula and the western edge of Washington.

The island is the permanent home of approximately 60,000 residents, known as the Whidbey Islanders.

From the northern tip to the southern point, the island is only 35 miles long and the width varies from 1.5 to 12 miles, making up a mere 168 square miles.

Whidbey was once home to members of several Native American tribes including the Snohomish, Lower Skagit, Suquamish and Swinomish. The island was spotted by explorers in 1790, but not fully explored until 1792 by Captain George Vancouver. Vancouver named the island in honor of Royal Navy officer and member of his expedition, Joseph Whidbey. Puget Sound was named for another member of that expedition and navy officer, Peter Puget.
