"This was a warm, welcoming, and incredible place. The location is phenomenal with unimagined views of Rosario Strait. Not only are you treated to the vast, calm water and expansive views of many other islands, but also to boats, ships, and kayaks, none of which invade the intimacy and privacy of this amazing cottage on the bluff. You will also be treated to encounters with/views of eagles, dolphins, deer, hummingbirds, seals, sea lions -- all from the hot tub, the deck, or almost any room in the house. Whales are possible with patience and luck. The lush vegetation of the area and the ever-present deer become part of the house through the kitchen and bathroom windows. All windows open wide to let the house and the wondrous location merge and become one -- with or without screens at your discretion.
The house is furnished exquisitely -- fully functional and with quality items. Amenities are robust including a wide range of TV/music options, wifi, laundry, and kitchen amenities. The house is a delight for those of us concerned about the fragile environment of the islands, with full recycling, green household products, and a compost toilet system.
Access to the ocean for beaching, swimming, fishing, and boating is nearby. The private roads in the area are wonderful for romantic walks or family day hikes. More strenuous activity is available with Moran State Park and Mt. Constitution nearby.
The carefully built and finished craftsman cottage is a perfect, intimate venue for romance and couples relaxation. Doug is the premier host and could not be more welcoming or hospitable, and returned our cleaning deposit almost before we got back home! We cannot wait to go back!"
