Property description

From a gated entry and down a meandering drive emerges the quintessential island getaway. Gloriously quiet, privately sited, and embraced by nature, this modestly elegant, exquisitely crafted, and truly captivating waterfront home boasts an artisan's flair with custom details throughout. Designed for comfort and island-style entertaining, the extraordinary floor plan flows seamlessly to shoreside decking and beach access with commanding views over Spieden and President's Channel to outer islands and beyond to Canada.

Classic, timeless, and one of the most charming San Juan Island vacation rentals presently available, one cannot help but fall under the spell of Whitebrook. Warm, welcoming, and gracious -- a very special place

Year Purchased: 2005

About: A true native of the Pacific Northwest, I had the good fortune to annually visit the San Juan Islands by boat with my family. I have vivid recall of sitting in the cockpit as a mere child while at anchor in West Sound declaring that one day I would live in the islands. After many years of flirting with the San Juan Islands, in the Summer of 2003, I realized my dream by relocating to Friday Harbor. To live here year-round -- to become part of the fabric -- is a different way of life: the pace is slower, the world quieter, the people approachable. Abundant with breathtaking scenery, natural wonders, and wildlife, it is a compelling lifestyle -- now, more than ever. There is an irresistible charm, a gentle grace -- an unparalleled sense of community. It is a quality of life unlike anywhere else in the world. With a background of hospitality to include restaurateur, caterer, and professional chef aboard some of the finest private yachts on the West Coast, combined with a recent successful real estate career and residential staging business, I have now come full circle. The common thread is that all these things say welcome -- make yourself at home! To those who know me well, it came as no surprise that I have chosen to live on an island. Not a day passes that I do not feel blessed. Nothing could possibly give me more pleasure than to manage Whitebrook in an attempt to share this magical, dreamy island with others.

Why Roche Harbor:
Standing majestically in the northwest corner of the state of Washington, you will find the San Juan Islands. A collection of 172 islands, beloved for their remoteness, tranquility, big skies, beautiful beaches, diverse landscape, mild climate, and wildlife, each island has its own charm. This is a place where the natural world dominates and where folks will often raise a hand to wave in passing. Considered to be the economic, cultural, and social center, San Juan Island is the most populated of the islands. It is verdant, pastoral country punctuated by forested mountains and great beaches. The historic seaport of Friday Harbor, is located on the east side up from a well-protected harbor -- a picturesque hub of activity with abundant opportunities all within walking distance of the ferry landing. Roche Harbor, a legendary resort on the northwest end of the island, offers a busy marina, airstrip, colorful formal flower gardens, shopping, and restaurants. San Juan Island boasts fabulous walking beaches, open prairie, flower-filled meadows, forest, and wildlife. Simply sublime.
