Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We moved to the island in 1999 after several years of cruising and boating in these calm waters. Our last visit, we just did not want to go home, which then was Southern California. We live the island life style, growing as much of our vegetables as possible and cooking from scratch We love to share our wonderful food, recipes and beautiful Garrison Bay on San Juan Island with travelers. Come visit!

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
We built this home with the thought of family and friends visiting San Juan Island and this absolutely wonderful perfect beach property. We want to share this magic with others. COME VISIT Garrison Bay San Juan Island!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private Beach Waterfront. Extra large park like lawn area for family fun. No steps, rocks or cliffs to climb to access water. Walk right in! One of few if not only beach front homes on SJI with such easy beach access. Bring your kayaks or inflatable boat and enjoy!
