Friday Harbor house description

Our beach house sits on a low bluff with a very short trail down to the sandy beach. It is great to launch kayaks, relax on your beach chairs with a book or let the children play in the water. There is 1 other vacation homes on the cove so you will enjoy maximum privacy and we are close to the end of the road so there is minimal traffic - Peace and Quiet - Ahhhhh.

The house has a West/southwest exposure to enjoy incredible sunsets and whale watching from the decks. The kitchen, great room and master bedroom are on the 2nd floor to maximize views.

Appliances were replaced recently along with a 42' HD TV.

Fireplaces on each floor with a pool table on the first floor.

Sitting in the hot-tub for 8, watching the whales, relaxing - it doesn't get much better than this!

Most rooms were repainted in 2014 with many updates.

                      Kayak rentals can be arranged for delivery to the house so the kayaks can be launched from the beach in front of the house.

                      Tons of wildlife can be seen from the house: deer, eagles, whales, fox, herons, commorants,

                      Only 15 minutes to Friday Harbor, 20 minutes to Roche Harbor.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: My husband was born in Washington and spent many summers on San Juan Island. I manage the property and take care of all of the updates that we do each year. WE have been renting this property for 12 years on other sites. Thought I would try out VRBO this year along with vacationrental com.

                      Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
                      We purchased the house in 2000 so we could have a slice of paradise. The views, the BEACH, the wildlife....We love the calmness that this location brings. When we have friends visiting, no one ever wants to leave even though town is close by.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      As San Juan Island is a giant rock, there are not many properties that have a sandy beach front. We are lucky to have one of the few so you can swim and kayak right in front of the house.
