Looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, celebrate a milestone
or plan the ultimate get-away?
Our two beautifully decorated "glamorous camping" Safari tents are the perfect retreat for nature lovers, writers, or health enthusiasts alike. We invite up to four adult guests, two per tent (rented separately) to experience pure tranquility nestled in nature. Our season is May through September, and available Wednesday through Saturday nights. Recently featured on King 5 News as "20 Unique Getaways in Washington State". And Whidbey Island is just a ferry ride away from Seattle!
Tents are constructed on a raised platform, blanketed inside with intricate rugs for extra warmth. Each tent has a plush queen-size bed with down comforters and luxurious bedding. Enjoy sleeping in 100% organic cotton sheets by locally-owned West Coast Mercantile. Plenty of extra blankets and a small space heater to take the chill off. There is a small dining table with seating for two, along with an assortment of books and small games. Linens, towels, and robes are provided. The “World Traveler” is decorated with pieces around the globe. There is a tall standing mirror and chaise for leisurely lounging. The “Moroccan” features colored-glass hanging lanterns and a Turkish floor couch. Outside each tent is a 5-foot covered deck with cozy seating. Indulge in a complimentary bottle of local wine and delicious chocolate truffles upon your arrival!
Enjoy a cool beverage at the no-host Tiki bar, stocked with glassware, blender, ice, cocktail tools and recipes. Alcohol is not provided so please BYOB. There are many yard games and board games available for use. An assortment of maps and guides are provided if you choose to check out local activities like island wineries, dining options, hiking trails or book a whale watching tour!
Come ready to cook! After spending the day visiting Whidbey's many seaside towns, and gathering up delicious dinner items, guests have access to a generous outdoor kitchen. Includes a Viking gas stove, BBQ, Keurig coffeemaker, hot water sink, and mini-fridge. Fully stocked with cookware, serving products, paper goods and spices. Enjoy your island foraged cuisine at the large teak table, under the covered pergola. Each morning the host provides coffee, tea, orange juice, and fresh organic eggs for guests to cook up and enjoy!
In the evening, relax by a crackling campfire (burn-ban permitting) and listen to the hooting owls calling through the trees. Not to worry if you are a novice to campfires, a fire can be started for you upon request. A small amount of firewood is provided each evening. Feel free to bring more, or additional wood can be purchased for a nominal fee. Complimentary S'mores kits are provided for your enjoyment!
Once settled in, guests are encouraged to stroll the property, explore the woods, or find fresh herbs in the organic vegetable garden. Admire the large flower garden and say hello to the resident chickens that lay your morning eggs. There is a yoga platform for calming meditation, and wildlife can often be spotted roaming about.
The bathroom facility is an upscale, shabby-chic outhouse with solar-powered lighting, kept impeccably clean and stocked with necessities. Revitalize your body and mind in the outdoor rain-shower oasis. The maze-like entrance is fully wrapped in bamboo siding for ultimate privacy. Pamper your senses with fresh air and take in the sights and sounds of nature surrounding you. Towels, robes, shampoo, conditioner, and body soaps are provided, but bring along your flip-flops.
Other things to note
This property requires all guests to be over 21 years of age. Reservation must be made by and for the guests that are staying. We do not accept 3rd party reservations made for someone else.
Check-in time is 3 pm - 8 pm. Check out is 11 am. Quiet time is 10 pm-7 am. Please respect these set times. Any additional visitors must be pre-approved by host. The property does not allow children, infants, or pets - even if just visiting. No exceptions will be made.
The wall tents are amazing tents! But guests are ultimately camping, so the hosts ask guests to please come with happy camper expectations. Dress warm; island temperatures can sometimes be 10 degrees cooler than Seattle, so guests should dress in layers and bring warmer clothes for the evening time.
A small amount of firewood is provided. The hosts ask guests to bring more if they enjoy a long evening out by the fire, or additional wood can be purchased. Campfires are contingent on county regulations. Host will enforce all burn-ban restrictions in place at time of stay.
There is no TV at the property.
Sorry, we do not allow children, infants or pets. No exceptions.
Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
