Friday Harbor house description

San Juan Island is whale watching paradise and Crest View is an ideal vacation home. Crest View is a large, recently constructed quality custom home which has water views from all rooms except baths, a gourmet kitchen, new furnishings and accommodates up to 9 persons. It is in a wooded, secluded setting with a sunny eastern side that overlooks San Juan Channel.

The drive to Friday Harbor takes about 4 minutes. Renters have access to a neighborhood private beach for launching kayaks/canoes. Famous Roche Harbor Resort and Spa is approx 5 miles.

Crest View is an ideal home base for island activities; its forested acres are a haven for deer, eagles, fox, and other animals; a sunny playground for picnicking, and playing horse shoes, ping pong, crochet and bocce ball; a quiet place to read or watch boats passing through the San Juan Channel.

Children are welcome, pets may be welcome, smokers are not.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Crest View was built by me and my husband, Sammy Long in 2006. We live on the west side of San Juan Island where we look across Haro Strait to Vancouver Island. Sammy is a sculptor specializing in bronze busts and figures. I specialize in making furniture I design and wood carving. We have our Spirit Bear studio here on the island. I do volunteer work for the UW Friday Harbor Marine Labs and Sammy does community service.

                          Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
                          The San Juan Islands are one of the most beautiful locations in this world. We are within 90 miles of Seattle, Victoria BC and Vancouver BC - three stunning cities. The climate is mild, the wild life is abundant, the scenery is too beautiful to believe, the orcas are astounding - it is heaven. Friday Harbor is a charming town with good stores, art galleries, excellent restaurants, high quality community theater, and an excellent rural hospital.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Crest View is a new property that is immaculate with mostly new furniture and all new linens. Its kitchen is fully equipped. The property has solitude/woods/water view plus it is close to both Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor Resort. Our private beach (for limited number of homes in area) lets you avoid kayak launch fees.Mona, the local camel, is on a farm within 1 mile of Crest View!
