Your well-being matters.
If you love art, outdoor activities, eagle and whale watching, walking the beach or enjoying a breathtaking sunset, then Whidbey Island is a terrific location to live and work. Our convenient location on Highway 20 in Oak Harbor is close to many Northwest attractions – numerous state and regional parks; close to the mountains for skiing, hiking; scenic Port Townsend; the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Seattle, Vancouver, or the San Juan Islands. The Island weather is moderate year-round with temperatures ranging from 35-80 degrees across the year and only half the rainfall of Seattle. Close enough to Seattle to catch sports games and shows.
If you are looking for a fantastic opportunity in one of the most scenic areas of the U.S, we would love to hear from you!
