We have a rocky shoreline of approximately 600 feet for good exploration, this connects to a much larger sandy beach which we have access to because we own vacant property next to this summer home. It is excellent for scuba diving and wetsuit snorkeling and crabs and scallops are abundant and at night bring a flashlight and a dip net (provided) and catch small shrimp right off the rocks. There is also a crab pot. There is also lots of edible seaweed all year round, sea lettuce, sugar wrack and pelvetiopsis which is great for stir-fry, starts out gold and ends up bright green in the wok....moreless
- Mountain View:
It is part of the great meander where the Pacific Ocean meets the Puget Sound. The San Juan Islands are the gateway. This property is located on a 3 mile wide channel just off the ocean which separates San Juan, Orcas and Shaw Islands. In addition, this is the leeward side of the island and the most pleasant all year round. There is a fire pit where s'mores and hot dogs are mandatory or maybe just a good glass of wine to be taken in while sitting on the benches and looking at the amazing view....moreless

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
Wonderful seclusion just an hour's ferry ride from Anacortes. San Juan is quaint and a bit yesteryear. Friday Harbor is a small town with just about everything you need except for franchise stores. San Juan gets about a third of the rainy days of Seattle. The main road is only a mile away and it's a calm rural road which is great for running, walking or bike riding. Turning right just before the winery and heading down a tree arched road we fell in love with our 6 acres of paradise. It is perhaps the finest piece of property on the Island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Seclusion. Fishing, crabbing, and tide pool viewing. Unparalleled bird and wildlife viewing. Waterfront cookouts. Water, wonderful view of other islands and Mt. Baker.
