About

Tara Vacation Rentals is taking extra care between guest stays to disinfect the home, following CDC guidelines, due to COVID-19. If you would like a hold day prior to your check in, please contact us to check availability and pricing.

Crow’s Nest is a vacation home located on South Whidbey Island, conveniently located 15 minutes from the Clinton Ferry Terminal and the charming town of Langley. The unique design of this recently constructed home resembles a countryside barn with influences of Japanese architecture. The upstairs loft has sweeping western views of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound shipping lanes. The home's spacious layout provides significant amenities for those with mobility issues and the first floor, including the bathroom with open shower, is fully wheelchair accessible. Guests will enjoy sunset views from the 14-foot high window in the great room, which also includes a smart TV, a DVD collection of movies not generally available on streaming services, and an upright piano. The well-equipped kitchen makes food preparation fun and is generally stocked with coffee, tea, half-and-half, various sweeteners, oil and vinegar, spices and herbs. Those with mobility issues can make full use of the kitchen, with appropriate countertop heights and all storage is within easy reach under the counters, not overhead.
The open loft on the second floor—also with western views—looks out over the high-ceilinged living room and provides overflow sleeping places for up to 4 people, including a romantic curtained window seat. A large table with chairs and stools provides ample space to set up a laptop or enjoy the collection of fun board games and puzzles stored in a credenza. Complementary high-speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the home.
The Crow’s Nest is ideal for a cozy and relaxing getaway with areas for socializing or solitude. You can explore adjacent forest trails or kayak friendly Cultus Bay. The calls of eagles are often heard, and on moonlit nights owls sometimes declare their presence. Deer roam freely and often.
As an environmentally friendly home guests are requested to separate compost, recyclables, and trash into the provided containers. There is a SMALL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT UNIT ON LOWEST LEVEL WITH SEPARATE ENTRANCE AND IS OCCUPIED ONLY INTERMITTENTLY. Booking agent is also on call for questions and issues.
Feel free to inquire for information on all wheelchair amenities.
NEIGHBORHOOD: Perched close to the crest line of Possession Point at the far south end of Whidbey Island, this small neighborhood is quiet and friendly. At night it's dark enough for stars to shine and the deep quiet will promote a good night’s sleep. The nearby Cultus Bay is kayak heaven. Hike down forest paths or drive to a pleasant beach park with eastern views where ADA parking and walkways allow wheelchairs to join the rest of your party at the driftwood-strewn beach with picnic tables and BBQ grills.

Crow’s Nest is designed to meet the needs of many folks in wheelchairs or with other mobility issues. If you’re in that group, when you book you may want to let us know so we can make sure the property is optimally configured for your needs and expectations. For example, one option is in the downstairs bedroom which can be configured with ONE KING BED or TWO TWIN BEDS.

Due to our septic system, infants are included in max. occupancy.

Note: The paved road up to the home is quite steep and in ice or snow, guests may need all wheel drive and traction tires.

“If you would like to book for longer than 2 weeks, please inquire as the system only allows online bookings be made up to 2 weeks, but we welcome longer stay”

We were thrilled to discover a vacation rental that works for me as a manuel wheelchair user and my spouse and her sister! So many places claim to be accessible but turn out to far from that. The crow’s nest delivers on all counts and is beautiful and has multiple water views. The kitchen is well designed and has all the tools to cook great meals. Multiple outdoor areas allow for coffee and tea and meals in the sun! We started looking for more open dates for our next visit in June or July before we left! Nothing but positive things to say about the home and the experience! Thanks so much!!

Manager's Response

Thank you for your comments. We are so happy that the Crows Nest met all your vacation needs on Whidbey Island. We hope you found so open dates for your next stay on the Island. +

As a first trip post-vaccine with my childhood best friends, this home was the perfect weekend getaway. The house was very clean, the kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed (and more), the beds were comfortable and we loved the DVD selection. Conveniently located near to the state park, we enjoyed walks along the beach, in addition to the beautiful view out the front window. With only a short drive from Clinton and Langley we were able to experience the towns on Whidbey Island. We will definitely be returning to this home, hopefully soon!

Manager's Response

Thank you for your comments. We are so happy you found a home that "was the perfect weeekend getaway" on Whdibey Island. We hope we can help you with your next stay on the Island.

This home was a perfect choice for my writing retreat because it was very quiet and designed in such a way that the kitchen was well stocked and the owner had left easy to follow instructions for its use. I wish I was a musician because both a p[iano and guitar are available. The bed was comfy, always an important consideration! I’d love to rent it again.

This was our third visit to Crows Nest and we enjoyed it as much as previous visits. We love the views, both from the interior and exterior patio/decks. The house is well equipped and all we bring is food and ice and our favorite games/crafts. The main floor is wheelchair friendly including kitchen and bath. There are beaches nearby for walks and looking for shells. Fun weekend for adults and teens.
