Property description

Prepare to enjoy the peace and serenity of this island retreat, and the amazing views of the Haro Strait, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Olympics and Victoria. Our spacious home is a comfortable 2000 square foot rambler, situated on four rolling acres overlooking the Haro Strait. Relax outside on the deck and watch the shipping traffic, or keep a watchful eye out for the deer, foxes, rabbits or raccoons that frequent the grounds surrounding the house, or let your eyes wander to the eagles, vultures, and hawks as they hunt from the skies above. From your perch above the Haro Strait, as evening approaches, enjoy the spectacular sunsets for which the west side of the island is world famous. As night falls enjoy the bright lights of Victoria and Port Angeles.

From late April through September look for the sightseeing boats speeding over from Victoria in search of our resident pods of orcas and other marine life. During these months, orcas often can be spotted from the house, as they travel up and down the West side of the island. For those who want a closer look at the whales, there are public viewing areas one-half mile away. Approximately a mile from the house is prime orca viewing at Lime Kiln State Park, the first park in the country dedicated to whale watching. There the whales may pass as close as five yards offshore.

Other favorite outdoor activities on the island include clamming, crabbing, kayaking, beachcombing, hiking and bicycling. All of these are less than 20 minutes away.

For the chefs among you, our home features a fully-equipped kitchen, centrally situated and facing the water. The master bedroom and dining areas are also situated to take full advantage of the views.

Our home sleeps six to eight people. It is furnished with two queen beds, one full bed, one full futon and one queen futon.
