Property description

Plan your escape to quiet Camano Island– the “Shortest Distance to Far Away”!

Located just a bit over an hour north of Seattle, Camano offers an “Island lifestyle” without the ferry lines, expense, and hassle. As soon as you drive onto the Island, you can feel Island Tyme kicking in. It won't take long for you to be as comfortable and laid-back here as are the full-time residents.

Island Tyme Cottage is a beach house with all of the amenities so that you can truly enjoy your time on Camano Island. It is located on Tyee Beach on the quiet southern part of the Island. Tyee is a close-knit private beach community and is situated at the base of a forested bluff which contributes to the peace and quiet of the area. There is literally water on one side of the house and forest on the other. The quiet road that wanders the length of the beach is wonderful for leisurely strolls, jogging, and cycling.

Island Tyme Cottage is located just a few steps from the beach with views across Port Susan to the mainland and the Cascade mountains. Mount Rainier is visible to the south on those days when “the mountain is out”. Enjoy serene sunrises that often turn into a riot of colors and textures. Port Susan is never the same from minute to minute as the tides and breezes keep it in continuous motion, it is a feast for eyes and camera lenses as well. No two days are ever the same on our part of Camano Island.

The main floor of Island Tyme consists primarily of a Great room where the kitchen, dining room, and living space are open and connected. On the water side of the great room there are double French doors and floor to ceiling windows so that one can relax and enjoy the water which is only a few feet from the house. The windows, being two stories tall, also let in a generous portion of the sky so that the room is always bright. The French doors can be opened in nice weather so that the Great room, the deck, and the beach become one space.

The kitchen features an eating bar that surrounds the stove so the cook can converse with everyone while cooking up yummy things to eat. The eating bar seats four and is a natural spot in which to share meals and conversation. The kitchen is well equipped with the tools of the cook's trade and is stocked with pantry staples. The kitchen also features a full size refrigerator with water and ice in the door along with a microwave, toaster, and coffeemaker. It will serve well for anything from a quick snack to a full-blown meal. The dining area next to the kitchen has a table that will seat from one to four so invite your friends over for a good meal and some time at the beach!

The living space contains a comfortable sofa and two chairs which are arranged around a television with a DVD player. Wireless Internet is provided so that you can keep in touch with loved ones and friends and stream in entertainment of your choice. In one corner of the living room there is a floor to ceiling stone fireplace which provides warmth and ambiance while watching TV, reading a book, or having a conversation with friends and family over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Relax on the deck located between the home and the beach. There are tables and chairs on the deck for reading or dining. It is only a couple of steps from the deck to the pebble and sand beach that can be walked to the north or south for many miles (watch for high tides; there is a tide table next to the lamp in the living space). Or you can hang out and watch the kids play while poking about for beach treasures. In season you may see whales, herons, eagles, harbor seals, ducks, loons, and other wildlife. There is a fire bowl located on the bulkhead above the beach to provide warmth on cool evenings and at any time it's a perfect place for toasting marshmallows for s'mores.

The master bedroom is located upstairs and has a wonderful view of the water. It contains a king bed along with a closet, dresser, and chest of drawers so that all your things can be conveniently stowed away. Open the window a bit before retiring and fall asleep (and subsequently wake up) to the sound of lapping water and a view of Port Susan. The master bath adjoins the master bedroom and features a jetted Jacuzzi soaking tub, a wonderful place to unwind surrounded by candlelight after a day of exploration and relaxation.

The downstairs bedroom contains a queen bed and a dresser for storage. The view from the bedroom window is of trees; it's almost like being in the middle of the forest.

In addition to the two bedrooms there is a “secret loft', accessible by a built-in ladder, that can comfortably sleep two people and additionally serve as a “home base” for young adventurers.

Island Tyme is a great base for exploring all that Camano Island and the surrounding area have to offer. There are festivals and activities on the Island and the towns adjacent on the mainland throughout the year; some of these include Glass Quest in the winter, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in spring, and the Stanwood-Camano Fair in the summer. Camano is home to two wonderful State Parks, Camano Island and Cama Beach, which offer hiking, picnicking, biking, and beach activities. Also within a short drive are many interesting shops, stores, and restaurants catering to almost every taste. The best part is enjoying all of this on Island Tyme!

We would love to share our “happy place” with you and hope that you can experience what Island life is all about; warning; you may never want to leave!
