                      San Juan Island has been voted the #1 tourist destination in the United States for 2013 by numerous vacation companies. Our 2 national parks are extraordinary and the pods of Orca whales that can be seen daily make this an excellent destination for travelers.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Our family has lived on the island for over 30 years. We built this home as a team and love the quiet location where we can hear the tide rushing by from the deck and all sorts of birds calling.

                      Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
                      Kanaka Bay is situated between the University of Washington Marine Preserve at False Bay and the rugged West side waters of San Juan. A little of everything. Look it up on Google earth and see why we bought this property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Herons, Eagles crying and building their nearby nest, quiet, deer everywhere, fox, quail, sunrises and sunsets with a pink glow of the Olympic Mountains. Freighter traffic. Mt. Rainer from the kitchen window. Open views and lots of sun. Moon rises and sets.
