Washington vacation rentals that conjure “Practical Magic” vibes

Nicole Kidman recently confirmed that “Practical Magic 2" is in the works. The original film, known for its exceptionally whimsical style, was partially filmed in the San Juan Islands. Here are some nearby Airbnb and Vrbo listings that beg for rounds of midnight margaritas.

The John and Jane Kinneth House in Coupeville was built in the 1880s and still hold all of its antique charm, but now with a cheerful coat of bubblegum pink paint. A small garden and a flag poll are right in front of the house.

All the John and Jane Kineth House needs is a little rosemary planted by its garden gate.

Listen up, witches — we’re not sure if you caught this in your tea leaf readings this week, but Nicole Kidman herself confirmed that “Practical Magic 2" is in the works, featuring both herself and costar Sandra Bullock.

The original fantasy drama, released in 1998, was partially filmed in Seattle’s neighboring San Juan Islands. Many of the town shots were filmed just a ferry ride away in Coupeville, and the famous Owens house itself was constructed in Friday Harbor.

Dreaming of an escape to somewhere as beautiful as the “Practical Magic” setting? Yeah, us too.

Here are some vacation rentals that are practically begging for a round of midnight margaritas:
