Overview

About the property

2.5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

NEWLY LISTED!! Nantucket Style with peak-a-boo Water View

This newly listed 2 bedroom (plus a futon room), 2.5 bathroom house located close to Kanaka Bay, is a perfect getaway to relax and rejuvenate on San Juan Island.

This charming house features a fully stocked kitchen, two outdoor decks and a 0.25-acre lawn. A gas bbq is available to cook Westcott Bay oysters while watching the sun set from this west facing house. Enjoy the lovely view with your morning cup of coffee, and possibly spot some whales from the private master bedroom porch.

The layout of the two bedrooms upstairs makes it feel as though there are two masters with separate bathrooms attached. This makes it ideal for two couples with a possible younger traveler as well.

Perfectly situated down a very private road just a few miles from downtown Friday Harbor. The rest of this 1.5 acre property is covered with lush, naturally growing vegetation, which adds to the feeling of privacy. Bring your bikes to travel from the property out to the west side and Lime Kiln Lighthouse, which is a great spot for a sunset cocktail with a chance of seeing some whales, porpoise, seals, sea lions and bald eagles!!

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay was just right. We arrived after dark, and only got a little confused by the “private road, turn around now” sign. Once we verified our location with gps, we found the house with no trouble. Everything was exactly as described. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the place was spotless. Our bed was very comfortable. The couple who slept on the low bed in the extra space said their bed was soft with a too firm foundation, but they endured.(might be best for children, not adults.) We enjoyed many bunny sightings, but sadly, no foxes. We wished had been an iron and ironing board. We also felt the $200 cleaning fee was excessive for the amount of cleaning that was expected by us on check out. Overall, it was well located, and very well equipped spacious and comfortable.

Reviewer Comments:

A beautiful “beach house”, close enough to the water to hear the waves hitting the shore. A secluded location with an abundance of wildlife (eg. Rabbits, Foxes, deer, etc...). Great place to relax. House was clean, well-maintained, and had everything we needed. Lots of books and games. TVs in each bedroom with DirectTV. DSL was adequate, even for streaming media if you bring a device or two, but don’t expect lightning speeds. One word of warning, we have AT&T wireless and were roaming on Canadian network. Be prepared to pay int’l rates to use cellular, depending on your provider. With that said, we would not hesitate to rent this beautiful property again. My son and I enjoyed a 3 hour kayak tour, discounted through this rental, and our family spent a few days enjoying the San Juan County Fair. Thank you for sharing your home with our family!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed here (two couples with a 9 yo, 7 yo, and 9 month old infant) and were very comfortable. We found the house and amenities (linens, dishware, etc.) to be in very good condition and the management company was super communicative and responsive. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again! Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

The Kanaka Bay home was convenient to both Friday Harbor and all the routes toward the northern and southern parts of the island. It was, however, difficult to find on our first day; from the Kanaka Bay Rd turnoff it can be a bit confusing and we were thrown off by some of the shadier-looking side streets and haphazardly posted Private Property signs everywhere. The interior furnishings are a bit on the shabby and outdated side, as others have pointed out. The flooring on the main level is also weird; some kind of linoleum material, not sure. Wood floors here would go a long way in taking this house to the next level. The main back deck also needed some tidying and sweeping up; plants were growing up through the slats and there was old bird poop on the deck chairs. Yes, these are minor details that shouldn’t deter most travelers but the finickiest but we’ve stayed in a lot of places and expected much more for what we were paying. The published photos in the marketing for this rental are striking, too polished even, and so it was a little disappointing in real life. But overall, it was a comfy stay. The kitchen was spacious and functional and open to the main dining area. We found everything we needed to prepare our meals including the fresh clams and oysters we bought from Westcott Bay Shellfish (a must-try). The management company leaves a lot of great guides and maps and reference material for your perusal. The wildlife that visited the house was charming—out of a fairytale. We saw lots of deer, birds, bald eagles, and foxes—so many foxes. Tulip the neighbor’s grumpy dog frightened us on our second or third day, showing up at the back deck but then went on her way. We kind of missed her after that.
