Property description



STARFISH SUITE IS LOCATED ON THE POINT OF NORTH BAY, SOUTH FACING, FIFTY FEET FROM THE OCEAN. WE ARE MINUTES AWAY FROM TOWN, THE FERRY LANDING, AND JACKSON'S BEACH.

The charming and quaint seaport town of Friday Harbor, its streets lined with leafy trees, wood-framed buildings, art galleries, coffee shops and restaurants, is a pleasant stroll from the Starfish Suite. Walk into town for your morning latte (l mile!) or take an evening stroll to our exciting harbor, where action is never wanting.

Nestled on the edge of North Bay with the Salish Sea as a backdrop and Dinner Island directly in front of us, we are home to a myriad of birds, seals, sea lions, and river otters. Rising up from the horizon are the Olympic Mountains with their snow~capped peaks. Our incredible location allows you to escape into a world filled with the wonders of nature, to breathe in the saltwater air, to feel renewed, refreshed and rejuvenated. Whether visiting in the summer or winter, the San Juan islands are always spectacular.

All living areas in The Starfish Suite face the sparkling sea in our 1,500 sq. ft. two bedroom, two bath oceanfront apartment. Perfect for one guest or four guests. Not too big and not too small. Cozy yet well appointed, the sunken living room has picture windows that embrace the views of Dinner Island and Griffin Bay. Snuggle up on the twin love seats and watch TV on a Samsung 46 inch Smart TV with Dish, internet-configured for streaming Netflix, Amazon and other media, and high-speed WiFi. The little french wood~stove is always set for a warm fire. There is a bookshelf filled with best sellers, books on the history of San Juan Island, games and puzzles.

The dining and kitchen areas and the romantic master suite all open up to a sunny ocean~front deck that literally embraces North Bay. You can barbecue dinners caught from the sea, dine overlooking North Bay, Griffin Bay and the Olympic Mountains, kayak or paddle board in front of our home, chill out in a double hammock or just relax with a good book, mesmerized by the continual motion of the sea that surrounds you.

The sunny Master Suite has a private entry and opens onto the waterfront deck. The en~suite bathroom adjoins a dressing area and small ballet barre. The guest bedroom is light and airy with a large picture window facing Dinner Island, the Olympic Mountains and historic Argyle Town.

You will often see eagles and great blue herons dipping into the ocean, seeking tasty morsels. Walk down to the rocks where marine life abounds with purple starfish, small fish, seals cavorting, goslings exploring their world with their parents and an occasional river otter.

Organic gardens, and a private meditation garden. Many a wonderful meal has been enjoyed in our circular blue-stone Outdoor Kitchen with granite counter-tops, a sink, refrigerator and a Fire Magic commercial barbecue are all available for your enjoyment.
We welcome you to discover one of the best ocean~front locations on San Juan Island!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Building our family home on the point of North Bay 29 years ago has been one of our most rewarding and exciting life adventures. At that time, San Juan County had no set back limits on where to build, so we sited our home fifty feet from the edge of the ocean. Today , it would be impossible to build that close to the water. We love living on the island, raising our family, playing with our grandchildren and enjoying the quiet beauty that surrounds us. We have been active in community services and volunteer work on the island. David is a retired naval officer, engineer, and real-estate broker and I am a retired United Airlines International flight attendant and educator. We are originally from Lake Oswego, Oregon. We have now decided to live 6 months in the desert and 6 months at home. We do encourage long-term renters in the off-season months of October through March. Call or e-mail us for additional information on off~season rates.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
The Starfish Suite is perfectly located for walks into town and Jackson's Beach. There is always something to do in town, whether your pleasure is fine dining, boutique shopping, visiting our new state of the art Art Institute on Spring Street, going to the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, cruising on the Victorian Clipper to Canada, attending our San Juan Community Theatre, taking a whale~watching cruise, or just mingling with the 'locals' (who sometimes stop in the middle of the sidewalk to play their fiddles!). Our Private Road is in a quiet neighborhood that overlooks North Bay, Griffin Bay and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. One incredible joy living so close to the sea is the intimate views of the bird and sea-life that surround us. North Bay is home to a myriad of wildlife and sea life. One is always reminded of the special beauty where we live, whether it is paddle boarding across the bay to Dinner Island, bicycling into town, listening to birdsong, or watching a mother deer carefully guiding her twin fawns away from harm's way. We truly live in a magical paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Jackson's Beach is one mile from our home. Beach activities include swimming, picnicking, sailing, crabbing, kayaking, wind-surfing and paddle-boarding or just walking the shoreline, looking for sea glass. We do have private parking for your car with space for a 20 foot boat, which can be launched from nearby Jackson's Beach.
