Camano Island house description

WHALES CAN BE VIEWED JUST 7 METERS IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE!!! WHALE SEASON IS MARCH - JUNE!!

Uniquely situated on 400 feet of no-bank sandy beach along Saratoga Passage on the southwest end of Camano Island, our home offers expansive views of both Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Mountains. Our historic home was built in 1957 on 3.5 mostly natural acres right on the sandy beach. Quiet and privacy is ensured by wetlands filled with driftwood on one side, and a picturesque cove community on the other side, about 3000 feet down the beach.

Pacific Northwest nature is at its best here with eagles, herons, seals, sea otters, foxes, deer and all the small forest creatures. Both Orcas and Gray whales feed on plankton and pass as close as a tweny feet from our bulk-head between March and June (peak viewing is April/May). Enjoy the views from our covered patio with fireplace -- sparkling water during the day, spectacular island sunsets, and starry nights. Outdoor activities include: hiking, bicycling, fishing, clamming, crabbing, beach-walking, kayaking, whale-watching and boating.

Our guests enjoy water views from ALL rooms since the home is built on a point and with unusual angles. The living room has a wood stove (wood provided) for cozy relaxation, and flat screen TV with DVD. There is also a stereo system with many FM channels and tape deck. The dining room looks west towards Whidbey Island and sunsets. Our country kitchen is fully equipped (all dishes, utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, etc.). Both bedrooms have water views and ample closet space. The master has a small bath with shower (queen bed). The second bedroom has a King and double bunk bed (suitable for kids, bring sleeping bags). The hall bath has a tub. Our flat-roofed, pumice brick home was designed and built with 1950's era charm -- warm wood paneling inside, built in cabinets and dining room buffet, and red brick fireplaces. There is a full laundry room with washer/dryer.

Our home is especially enjoyable to those who love nature. The previous owners enjoyed it for 70 years, after buying the land from a small logging operation in 1929. Prior to that, the area was homesteaded in the late 19th century and probably was used occasionally as a Native American summer camp. We are now opening our home of 8 years to share with like-minded nature-lovers.

Camano Island is easily reached by driving over a bridge which means no ferry lines! Our home is reached in about 30 minutes from the I-5 Stanwood exit.
