This is a 5 acre compound on 450'+ of pristine Puget Sound waterfront, featuring the only private dock on Camano island. Abundant sea and wildlife include some of the best crabbing in Puget Sound (in season from 7/1 through Labor Day), clamming on our own beach, fishing off the dock or out front in Elger Bay (nearly a guaranteed catch of a pile perch or rock sole with a hook and a piece of meat...also pink salmon, cutthroat for the more avid anglers), daily bald eagle, deer, otter, and grey whale sightings (whales in late winter). Beachcomb for miles along a beautiful shoreline, enjoying views of Mt. Rainier, the Olympics, Hat and Whidbey Islands. Main house is 3 bedrooms, including a bunk room with two full and two twin beds, plus two additional twin mattresses that can be used for kids, and queen beds in the other rooms, plus a separate guest house with one queen bed, living room, and full bath (perfect for grandma and grandpa). There are also three bunk beds and three extra mattresses (total of nine twin beds) in the 'Bunkhouse' which is a separate finished garage space located south of the main house and on the bulkhead (no bathroom though but the kids love it...and the Xbox that goes with it).
Enjoy days exploring the five acres (look for the hidden rope swing!) and adjacent Camano Island state park, boating, kayaking and canoeing (with our boats), swimming (brrr!), clamming, crabbing and fishing, then retire around the enormous seaside firepit to cook s'mores and tell ghost stories.
Off Season (October 15 through May 15) the main house only is available as we have a caretaker in the lower guest house for the winter. Also, the floating portion of the dock is not in the water during the winter months. Summer high season (6/15 to Labor Day) we request a four night minimum stay.
Winter rentals do NOT include the guest house. Ideal max occupancy in the main house is two couples plus a maximum of six kids, which includes two on mattresses. Guest house provides an additional queen bed in what is essentially a one bedroom apartment. ...moreless
Non refundable cleaning fee is $125 for the main house, plus $25 if the guest house is used.
Check in time is 3 PM and Check out is 10 AM unless other arrangements have been made - we may have flexibility depending on when the next renters leave or arrive.
Small dogs are allowed on the main floor of the main house only (see pet fee). Please be sure to clean up after your pets!
NOTE THAT GUEST CABIN IS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE OFF SEASON, JUST THE MAIN HOUSE PLUS ALL OF THE AMENITIES. WE HAVE A CARETAKER STAY IN THE GUEST CABIN IN THE WINTER.

Only 20 minutes from i-5 across a bridge (no ferries!), but in a pristine, quiet island location, our Camano Island hideaway offers an amazing beach, hiking in the adjacent Camano Island state park and nearby Cama Beach State Park, plus 18 holes of very good, but casual (jeans okay!) golf at Camaloch golf course, and shopping and restaurants within a 10 minute drive.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I grew up spending my favorite weeks in the summers at my family friend's cabin a few miles north of the Honeycomb Hideout and always dreamed of having a place of my own. Our family, along with a close friend and his family, discovered this legacy property a few years ago and we are so fortunate to have been able to made this dream a reality.
Why the Owner Chose Camano Island: Once you drive through the private gate into the neighborhood and drive down the hill to the waterfront, you'll know immediately why this is such a special spot. There are no immediate neighbors, and the privacy and seclusion is amazing. With four bedrooms spread between two houses plus another Bunkhouse, there is lots of room for two or three families and lots of kids. And the access to the beach, along with the dock, is something that is really rare and special in such close proximity to Seattle (only an hour's drive with no traffic and about 60 miles from town).
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The size of the property, the sweeping lawn, and the dock and low bank, accessible waterfront are all rare qualities in an island property. We love it on Camano!
