Captain Jim's is a beautiful three story home decorated in a nautical style with three bedrooms and a loft and a family room with futons with spectacular views from all three levels.

Enjoy your time here watching the boating activity at the marina or just looking at the beautiful water, mountain and island views from inside or one of the many decks outside. Be sure to watch for the deer and bunnies that come to visit in the backyard or wandering down the street!

Just minutes away, you can shop in historic downtown Anacortes or take a whale watching tour from Cap Sante Marina. You could also hop the ferry for a day trip to Friday Harbor.

The Captain's House overlooks Skyline Marina, Rosario Straights, Burrows Bay & Washington Park. Spectacular views of the mountains, islands and marina activity.

There are many things to do from this location:

-Walk to Tugboat Park and Beach.

-Drive 1 minute to Washington Park and enjoy 220 acres looking over Rosario Straights, with a beach, lookout points and picnic tables for walkers or drivers. There is a boat launch with covered picnic tables & play area for kids and adults.

- Take a guided kayaking tour from Skyline Marina.

-Take the 'Ice Cream Cruise' to Friday Harbor aboard the Paraclete Charter Boat.

-Drive less than 2 minutes to the San Juan Ferry and

park for $10.00and walk aboard for a gorgeous cruise through the San Juan Islands to Friday Harbor for the day. There are lots of shops and restaurants.

_Hop on the local bus just up from the Ferry and get a narrated history of the island. It takes you to the Pelindaba Lavender Farm, Lime Point & Lighthouse for a hike and a picnic. There are picnic tables with great views- and if you time it just right you will see the whales in their feeding ground. From there the bus continues to Roche Harbor where there are restaurants and vendor booths and historical sites to see. A great trip!

-You'll probably need a week to do all the fun activities that are available in the Anacortes area. Unlike other islands, you are not stuck on this island, but can go easily to any of them!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place. However if steps are a problem this not for you. Be aware the driveway is extremely steep and not fun to try to pull up to the top. Other than that we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay with all the amenities

Most stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

My two cousins who live near Seattle and I from North Carolina stayed for three nights in Captain Jim's. It was truly a wonderful experience for many reasons, the most outstanding one being the most stunning views we have ever seen from a rental home. We luxuriated each morning, watching as the sun came up and changed the landscape into a vacationers paradise. Each evening, we were treated to amazing sunsets over the water. We could see the snowy peaks of the Olympic mountains at times. Just incredible!

Other outstanding features about the house---- it was unusually well-stocked with every amenity, it was very clean when we arrived, the beds were very comfortable and Elizabeth and her son were most congenial and easy to work with.

We definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting the beautiful town of Anacortes and surrounding area!

It has everything!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at 8 or more VRBO's and I have to say this place had everything we needed. Beautiful view, spectacular sunset, spices we forgot, they had in their cupboard, lists of things to do at the house and in town. There were games, several places to have your morning coffee alone or with your group. Outdoors area for kids to play in the sand, several TV's which we never had time to turn on. The beds were all queen size and a couple futons/couches which would work for more people. The home was well stocked with everything a vacation would need. Thank you Elisabeth.

Exploring the San Juans with Family

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay to explore the San Juans. The view is absolutely exquisite, it was clean, and offers everything you could possibly need in a "home away from home." We are from the east and have two grown sons who reside in the northwest, one in Seattle and one on Whidbey Island. Having visited several other parts of the State of Washington we decided on exploring the San Juan Islands, using Anacortes as a base. It was just perfect as it is extremely close to the ferries. I can highly recommend this rental. Thank you Elisabeth!

Fabulous find!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for 3 nights in Aug 2015. The views from the upper part of the house are amazing and make it an ideal spot to relax at the end of the day. The house was huge and very well equipped. Due to our late arrival the owner made arrangements for us access the property which proved to be very helpful. We would have loved to stay here longer and would definitely stay here again should we be fortunate to visit beautiful Anacortes in the future.
