"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." - Albert Einstein
Imagine... you drive on the Washington State Ferry at Mukilteo in route to Whidbey Island. You turn off your radio and roll down your car window, smell the fresh ocean air, look at the islands on all sides of the ferry. The fresh air gently blows in your face and you feel the tranquility of leaving the chaos of the traffic and lights behind you. The huge sky, the warm sun breaking through the clouds, and assorted greenery adds to the sense of freshness and well-being. You are entering the realm of Whidbey Island, the Isle of Views and Tranquility.
You arrive refreshed at your new home - an airy, spacious dream home with that perfect water view, nestled within a forest. The wildlife simply amazes you, day after day. It's a rainy day in Seattle, but broken clouds here, allowing warm sunlight to penetrate your living room windows.
You put on your favorite CD, sit down and relax. You feel peaceful and alive. You love this luxurious and temperate oasis, a "renewed you" serenely smiles.
You laugh because you know this secret, the secret of Whidbey Island, a secret place in a Pacific Northwest, an area of warm winters, cool summers, modest rainfall, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and a light year from Seattle (via a 15-minute ferry trip). Friendly neighbors, great forests and open pastures, snow-capped mountains east and west, wind-swept bluffs and driftwood-covered beaches. Whidbey Island has pristine air, unpolluted water, low crime, great schools and great health care. Add no state income tax along with low property tax and you can understand why we call Whidbey Island a truly special place.
