If you’re looking for a high quality family oriented vacation rental, with fabulous ocean views of the Gulf and San Juan Islands from almost every room, quick access to sandy private beach – look no further! Welcome to Waters Plat – a charming neighborhood on the south side of Point Roberts, WA. Our home is one block away from the privately owned Waters Plat section of “South Beach”, and as our guests you have full access. South Beach is renowned for its wonderful sandy beaches at low tide – perfect for playing bocce or Frisbee, or flying kites.
Point Roberts is a quiet sea-side community approximately 5 minutes from Tsawwassen BC and the ferry terminal to Vancouver Island. It is 30 minutes from the Vancouver airport, and 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver. It is a very popular location for weekend cottagers given the proximity to Vancouver. If you are travelling by air, you have the choice of Vancouver International Airport, Bellingham International Airport (45 mins) or SeaTac International Airport (3 hrs). Point Roberts is home to a world class marina and golf course, along with other local services for the vacationer (two restaurants, bike rentals, parks & walking trails, coffee shop, retail shops, grocery store, etc.). We often have whales in the area, and there are lots of eagles soaring high above the ocean shores to remind you that you are someplace special, yet so close to the amenities offered by neighboring Vancouver.
Top Floor: All three bedrooms are located on this level. The master suite is ocean facing – wake up and look out the large windows to see the sailboats right from the comfort of a high quality king size bed. This room has a luxury ensuite with large frameless glass shower, steam sauna, jetted tub and heated floors. The second bedroom is “dual master”, faces the ocean, and contains a three piece ensuite including a 1920’s original claw foot soaker tub. The third bedroom has a queen bed and is located next to another three piece bathroom.
Main Floor: On the main floor, the home has two separate living rooms (both with HDTV’s and satellite TV), dining room, mud room, half bath and kitchen. The recently renovated kitchen includes all high quality stainless steel appliances including a 36” Dacor gas range- great for those who enjoy cooking. From the see-through kitchen, you can see the ocean and sunsets as you cook, and you access the backyard and BBQ area from the kitchen. Also on this level is the office/bonus room. The main living room also has a high quality Bassett pullout sofa for an additional sleeping area.
Patios: Our home has three separate patio areas. At the front of the house, the newly constructed dual decks offers a total of 1100 square feet (550 sq. ft per level). You will be drawn to the upper deck for the superb views and the comforts of the new patio set and dual lounge chairs. The patio is absolutely sun drenched and this is where our family spends most of our time on those hot summer days. Sit back, bring your iPhone/iPad or other supported device and control the wireless Sonos Music System to stream music on the patio while taking in the views and the sun. The lower deck offers another patio set and is perfect for morning breakfasts or when you prefer to get out of the sun but still enjoy the water views. In the backyard, there is a rock patio where the Weber BBQ is located along with a family sized picnic table for convenient outdoor dinners next to the grassy areas.
All linens, towels, and key sundry items. Fully stocked kitchen (all main appliances, toaster oven, coffee maker, kettle, pots/pans, dishes and related accessories).
