Our home was designed for indoor-outdoor living; solitude while living in town; living softly on the earth, and living large in a small home. A bird lover's paradise! Native plant gardens, a stream and pond where peace and quiet prevail.


In the soft morning light, crossing the bridge from the bedroom to main-living is magical. No matter what the weather, one is enticed to pause and enjoy the peace of the moment. No hustle-bustle here on Whidbey Island. Seattle is close, depending on traffic, about an hour and a half away. You will feel a "slowing down" from the moment you drive onto the ferry.

Our in-town home brags quiet and privacy, calling out for a leisurely morning stroll in the garden. Or, a 20 minute walk will take you to the small town of Langley, offering a number of choices for coffee and breakfast, or, later in the day, wine tasting, dinner and the theater.

The design and building of our home was a family affair, with our son being our designer/builder. The home's name, Fredley, comes from the combination of our names: FRan, EDwin, and BradLEY. Fredley has been written up in the Seattle Times, the Coupeville Examiner, and featured on Tiny Home Nation. It was also on the Whidbey Island Green Home Tour and the 2017 Whidbey Island Garden Tour. With careful attention to detailing the home looks contemporary despite the extensive use of repurposed materials. The roof water is captured in the stream and pond insuring no surface water runoff, even during the hardest rain storm.

This house is unique in many ways, not the least of which is the construction. Using quality recycled materials a patina has been created that is charming and timeless. The main-living building has metal siding, imbedded with history. It's former life was the roof at the Island County Fair Grounds, just down the road. The 100-year-old barn siding on the bedroom suite came from a deconstructed barn in Whatcom County. The spruce used throughout, is old growth with a former life as shelving in a Tacoma warehouse.

My husband says, when asked if he likes living here, "It's like a second skin."


Guests are welcome to explore the garden. The building called the "Barn" is for owners private use. On site parking is available in the carport if you are not over 8'. Overflow parking, should you have guests, should be on site, or on Sandy Point Road, as Grace Lane is a private road with no extra parking available.


On some occasions, owners will be in residence in the "Barn", and on other occasions we will be traveling. When we are traveling, your host will be Yessi, our daughter-in-law. The guest's home is separate and private from the Barn. We will greet you upon arrival, unless other arrangements are made. Check-in is 3:00. Please let us know what time you plan to check in so we can provide you with a key or you can use the key lockbox. We will check in with you from time-to-time to see if you need anything.


Our home is at the end of Grace Lane, mostly hidden by the garden. Please park in the carport if you are not overheigth. The front gate is very tall. You can't miss it.

The building we call "mainlining" offers a fully equipped kitchen, including cooking basics like olive oil, vinegar, sugar, jam, milk…that kind of thing. You will also find a large table for dining, sofa for relaxing, internet, and terrific bird watching and garden views. Langley water is excellent so bottled water is not provided or recommended.

The sleeping suite has a queen-sized bed overlooking a pond and garden. There is a TV monitor in the bedroom, available for movies but without cable for TV viewing. The bed has an electric mattress pad for cozy winter snuggling. In the top left-hand bathroom drawer there are two pair of eye masks for blocking the early morning sun, if necessasry. An extensive library is available.

The bath, with a large shower, is supplied with towels, soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer. For summer indoor-outdoor showering there are double doors opening out onto the garden.

A covered patio with a barbecue enhances our home's indoor-outdoor features. Firewood is provided. You will find pathways throughout the garden and several sitting areas which you can feel free to use at any time. Maintaining the garden is ongoing and will require our access from time-to-time. We will restrict our gardening to the hours of 11:00 to 4:00. If you are planning a special lunch, a visit with friends, or need quiet for meditation or prayer, please let us know so we can respect your privacy and schedule garden work for another day.

Because of the indoor-outdoor nature of our home, and the many windows, it can be chilly around the edges on cold winter days. Additionally, we're advocates of low-energy-use cool rooms, befitting our philosophy of living softly on our earth. To keep you warm and cozy, we have provided an electric sofa throw in the living area and an electric mattress pad on the bed.

Our high speed internet is provided by Whidbey Telecom. Electric service by Puget Sound Energy. Water and sewer by the City of Langley.

Fredley Home is such a wonderful place – it's cozy and serene, yet luxuriously modern at the same time. We had a great time staying here and I'd recommend it in a heartbeat. Thank you Fran and Ed!

My new wife and I stayed here after our wedding for a "mini honeymoon" and could not have been happier! The house is extremely unique and blurs the lines between what is inside and what is outside. The house feels very private and secluded, but is also just a 10 minute walk from town. I highly recommend staying here!

An architectural marvel that will change the very vibrations in your bones. There are people, books, poems, and places that have the ability to change your perspective and Fran's home fits this rare description. Pictures don't do it justice, it is simply an oasis that nourishes your soul and there is everything you would need for a relaxing stay and then some. It is no wonder Fran is a super host, I really appreciated the drinks in the fridge that she stocked. It was this kind of consideration that made me feel like I was being welcomed with a hug. Highlights: waking up in a bedroom surrounded by gorgeous trees. The sound of babbling water that surrounds the property. The delicious coffee! The library/bedroom area is connected by a bridge to the main living space, at night the moon lights your way and it is nothing short of magical. Thank you Fran from the bottom of my heart. Your home was spun out of love for the earth and we won't forget the experience of staying in it.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed -- the house, the garden, the island. Every detail of the house was unique and perfect. The kitchen was great for cooking, the bedroom lovely and tranquil. And the garden is a work of art. The perfect spot for a few days of peace and beauty.

My husband and I stayed at the Fredley home for his surprise birthday weekend and had a simply amazing stay at this beautiful home as well as really loving our time exploring Whidbey Island. The home is all that you expect and hope to find after looking over the beautiful photos and reading the string of fantastic reviews. It is the perfect place for a romantic weekend and just such a unique and special place. It somehow feels like you're staying in both your home and a boutique resort. Fran was a delightful host and we couldn't have asked for more regarding communication and welcome. A few recommendations/tips: -The kitchen and dining area are wonderful (and really well stocked with supplies), so I would definitely recommend going to the grocery store and cooking a meal while you're staying here. -Fran's list of recommendations are spot on; Orchard Kitchen is perfect for a special night out, Village Pizzeria is a great casual spot, Whidbey Island Distillery is the coolest, Whidbey Island Kayaking is a great outdoorsy outing, and Whidbey Pie Cafe is a perfect stop if you are driving to Ebey's Landing.

Fredley House was an absolute delight! The home is beautiful, with tons of lights and "indoor-outdoors" spaces that were such a delight to use on warm summer nights. It was such a treat to wake up to the sound of water trickling in the pond below and the sweet songs of birds enjoying the beautiful wildlife sanctuary that Fran and Ed have created there. In addition the home is one of the most fully stocked Air Bnb's I have ever stayed in, it was so wonderful to have such a complete kitchen to cook in. It was such a treat to spend our little "mini-moon" here, we'd recommend it hands down to anyone considering it.

My husband and I are travelers, traveling in our small Sprinter/Westfalia van, Thistle, with North America as our destination. This past fall, however, for a change of pace, we went to China for our son's Chinese wedding and to visit our new daughter-in-law's family.

Between travels, we make our home in Langley, having lived here for 32 years. We continue to think Langley is one of the sweetest towns in the U.S., and despite our travels to far off places, we continue to return to Whidbey Island like boomerangs.

We enjoy biking, and mostly ride our tandem. We have enjoyed group rides including Seattle to Portland, Chilly Hilly and several NW Tandem Rally rides. We have a dog, Benton, an Australian Shepherd.

Our son, Brad, and his wife, Yessi, live nearby. Brad was the designer/builder of our beautiful home.

When we travel, Yessi, and from time-to-time, Brad, will be your hosts.

Our entire family enjoys meeting new people. The Airbnb business provides us with many amazing opportunities to do just that, and our guests have all been fabulous. Part of our hosting style is to greet you on arrival and to check in on you your first morning to see if you need anything. We enjoy dropping in, but will be happy to call if you prefer. Just let us know your preference.

We welcome you to our home, town, island and the opportunity to live big in a small home. Enjoy.
