House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) Hot tub

Experience the Pacific Northwest – Island Style while staying in our lovely vacation home overlooking the Ocean to Vancouver Island B.C. Located on the west side of San Juan Island, this beautiful, privately located, romantic ocean view home was custom built with attention to the creative details. Relax every evening in your hot tub enjoying world class sunsets.

1,200 sf custom designed cedar sided cozy bungalow with a very efficient wood stove to enjoy when ambiance and warmth are the inspiration. Propane forced-air heat provided throughout home. Relax in our toasty outdoor hot tub and enjoy world famous sunsets on the Westside of San Juan Island.

Our Home includes 1 Master Bedroom with King bed, 1 Master Bath, Gourmet Kitchen, Dining, Lovely Living Room with memory mattress trundle bed that can be 2 twins. Separate alcove with twin cot. Wood stove heats the whole house or furnace heating. Separate laundry room.

The Home has wireless internet access and DISH satellite TV service & DVD Player and stereo player. 56' HD tv in living room.

Best of all is whale watching as this stretch of shoreline has been identified by a whale museum biologist as a feeding area for Orcas. Watch whales pass by from the deck as their PODS come within a few yards of shore, hunting salmon. Use the provided binoculars to see every detail.

There is plenty to do in the neighborhood with beach access at Snug Harbor Resort. Bird watching is superb, with resident Harlequin ducks and a nearby active Bald eagle's nest. Watch fox, otter, and deer close by, or pack your favorite beverages, a great book, and a picnic basket, and relax at one of the many close County, State, National and Historic parks.

This 1200+ square foot vacation rental location is truly the Pacific Northwest at its finest.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at the beautiful house. We loved everything about it. The view on the deck is amazing! Spent most of our time. Hot tub was great also with a view. We didn't want to leave the house to explore. Grilled out doors one evening and lunch a few times. Karen has absolutely everything you need. Mike joked the only thing not in kitchen was corn on cob holders. The decorations around house I also loved. We didn't plan on traveling back to Friday Harbor next year until we walked into this vacation house. Watching deer's and different birds and wildlife from the deck is also wonderful. We will be back next summer and stay longer. Thanks Karen for the best vacation stay anywhere.

A month of beauty!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the month of June at Karen and Norris' beautiful house. The house is cozy and comfortable. The view over Haro Strait is spectacular. I saw both the resident and transient orcas several times from the deck, as well as from other places on the island. Eagles, deer, pileated woodpecker, hawks and foxes were also frequent visitors. My family visited for a few days (the trundle beds were perfect) and I also enjoyed some peaceful alone time. The upstairs bed is very comfortable and I slept well every night --- and I'm a pretty fragile sleeper who can't sleep at all if the bed is bad. Karen and Norris are available if needed, but they are not at all intrusive. It was a perfect vacation and I hope to return again. Highly recommend.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were in need of a quiet weekend away and that is what we got! Plus much more. The view was incredible. The house was very comfortable and we had everything that we needed. Spent a little time in town but mostly just relaxed. Hot tub was perfect. Cooked steaks on the grill. Sat on the deck.Slept good. All was wonderful. Thank you so much!! We will come back in the spring.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were able to stay in this jewel of a retreat for only two nights. Would have loved to stay more! We would definitely love to return! We were here after the regular season to see the Orcas, but several guests prior to us commented on seeing them from the deck. The house has a beautiful deck where you can sit and watch the water and the spectacular sunsets! It's a very quiet community. The kitchen had everything that we needed, and it was a pleasant surprise to have a personalized welcome letter waiting for us when we arrived. Yes, the cell service at the house was Canadian roaming - however, a quick trip to anywhere else on the island, there was service as normal. I would recommend getting an international plan on your phone before you come. We had wi-fi at the house, so internet service with email was not a problem. They did ask that you remove shoes when in the house, so thick socks or slippers were a great idea and helped keep it clean. Instead of paying a cleaning fee, there was the option to clean yourself. (Every place we looked at had some sort of cleaning fee on top of the regular fee, so this was no big deal). It was an extensive list, but actually took very little time for us and very easy to complete. We loved the king sized bed with the view of the water and the sky light! Getting up and down from the platform was fun, but could prove to be a challenge for others. In all, we had a wonderful time, and I would go back in a heart beat. We enjoyed the hot tub under the stars as an extra bonus!

A special place on a special island

  • 5 of 5

The glowing reviews about this home are all true. My husband and I stayed here for over a month in January and fell in love with the house, the VIEW, the wood stove, the walks, the eagles and otters and foxes and more. Karen and Norris were excellent hosts - available but never intrusive. Any issues we encountered were immediately remedied - newspaper/kindling for the wood stove was provided, a shelf in the fridge missing a railing was quickly ordered and replaced. Honestly, nothing was missing from this home and we would have loved to have stayed indefinitely. January was a great month to go. It's quiet yet restaurants and stores are still open. Beaches and hills are your own to walk. Animals are easy to find with so few people about. We miss the peace and quiet already. Thank you Karen and Norris!
