About Danielle

My husband and I grew up on the Oregon Coast and developed strong ties to small communities and the Pacific Ocean. During college we spent our summers working on San Juan Island and soon realized this was a place of unique beauty that kept calling us back every year. Fortunately our lively-hoods took us in the direction of the arts, nature & wildlife, a perfect combination that allowed us to make this special island our home.

Danielle purchased this house in 2002

Why Danielle chose San Juan Island

Our property is a true paradise with privacy and spaciousness. At any given time a variety of wildlife can be spotted either walking by or flying above. Glimpses of Westcott Bay are just in the distance with fresh seafood to suit a King. The quaint & historic seaside village of Roche Harbor Resort backs our property offering a multitude of activities, restaurants and shopping.

What makes this house unique

Whether you just need a true escape or plan special family get togethers, Quarry Point Retreat is a perfect destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently spent a week in mid-September with our son, daughter-in-law and their 3 year old and couldn't have imagined a nicer place to be for a lazy vacation. The private vacation home is situated with water views on three sides with a very sizable yard for playing games with our grandson or just watching the ever-present deer. The home has a open layout that was great for those cooking and those just keeping the cooks company, but quite quiet for late sleepers. The owners have thought of just everything that visitors might need from a closet full of board games to a rice steamer (read over what is listed in the vacation home...all is really there). And the owners greeted us just after arrival with fresh coffee beans and fruit. We spent lots of time on the deck that has lounging furniture, table and chairs and a gas grill. This rental is in Roche Harbor which has good dining and some shopping, but only 15 minutes from Friday Harbor where the ferry lands. We were able to kayak easily from Roche Harbor and saw many seals in the fairly calm waters. Although the island isn't too hilly for biking, the roads are narrow. It's better to take the ferry with bikes to Orcas Island for a day of cycling. But, there are more things to do on San Juan Island than you can pack in in one week anyway. We enjoyed the Alpaca Farm and watching the Orca Whales off Lime Kiln Park.

Pleasantly Surprised

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented this property while attending a wedding at Roche Harbor. We have nothing but positive feedback about the location, the cleanliness of the home, the amentities, the peaceful surroundings and the ease of booking. We could not have been happier with our choice. Although not located right on the water, there were peak a boo views with lots of sunshine. Our friends who booked a waterfront cabin a short distance away, kept coming to our property for sunshine and a spacious deck area for all of us to enjoy. There were clear directions as to how to access the property and how to leave it for the next renters. Danielle is extremely organized and responsive to any questions or issues. We would definitely rent this property again!!! The pictures and description of the property are spot on and there were no surprises or disappointments. Thanks to Danielle making our weekend stay a memorable one!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was really lovely, and had gorgeous artwork all over the place. Our family enjoyed the enormous outdoor eating areas when it was warm, and there was plenty of indoor space for us when it got cool. The kids loved playing in the yard with all the games that were provided, and the location near Roche Harbor was so wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring the San Juan Islands, and the Quarry Point Retreat was the perfect place to stay for our family. The house was clean, well-kept, and very comfortable. Our family of 6 was very well-accommodated. The location is beautiful and peaceful, but also an easy drive to Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor for activities. We especially enjoyed seeing the deer and hummingbirds from the deck!
