From a gated entry and down a meandering drive emerges the quintessential island getaway.

Why Lis chose San Juan Island

Standing majestically in the northwest corner of the state of Washington, you will find the San Juan Islands. A collection of 172 islands, beloved for their remoteness, tranquility, big skies, beautiful beaches, diverse landscape, mild climate, and wildlife, each island has its own charm. This is a place where the natural world dominates and where folks will often raise a hand to wave in passing.

Considered to be the economic, cultural, and social center, San Juan Island is the most populated of the islands. It is verdant, pastoral country punctuated by forested mountains and great beaches. The historic seaport of Friday Harbor, is located on the east side up from a well-protected harbor -- a picturesque hub of activity with abundant opportunities all within walking distance of the ferry landing. Roche Harbor, a legendary resort on the northwest end of the island, offers a busy marina, airstrip, colorful formal flower gardens, shopping, and restaurants.

San Juan Island boasts fabulous walking beaches, open prairie, flower-filled meadows, forest, and wildlife. Simply sublime.

This is truly where forest meets water. All you can do when you walk through the front door is stop, stare and just say WOW - what a view! The home is laid out well with separation of the bedrooms, and the master with fire place is great. The kitchen is functional but only one of the ovens was working and they are small (no 20# turkeys) and not a fan of the tile counters. We saw whales and deer. The deer are bountiful on the island and hang out in the neighborhood - just beautiful. Games are mostly for children, but did find dominos and played. The furniture is very worn. Chairs at the game table are torn, stuffing out and leather is cracked to where you had to put a towel on it. The tiny blue "club" chair arms are thread barren. Think of this as a house in the woods so if spiders and spider webs creep you out -- this isn't the home for you. If you want a home with incredible views, with a functional kitchen and great master -- then I would recommend it.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic, it is large, and roomy, with amazing views! The hot tub was perfect, it made the trip with the cooler evening temperatures. The tidal pool just steps from the house was a fun adventure. Our property manager Kathryn could not have been more wonderful. She helped us every step of the way from the planning stages to execution. It was so nice to know she was only a phone call away if we needed anything at all! Beautiful place, great time!

WOW WOW WOW 180 degree views of the islands! Honestly look no further!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many a VRBO place from Utah to Florida to Austria, this home was terrific.

Let me tell you why:

nice roomy home

incredible views

hot tub-something I didn't think we would care for made the trip

the location-deep in the woods-yet right on the water

my 6 and 8 year old boys loved exploring the tidal pool 30 seconds out the back door

wildlife@!!! Bald Eagles right above you in the trees, raccoon on the beach, deer in the driveway

remote yet close to everything (island is only about 10 miles by 10 miles :>) )

eating IN-fresh seafood RIGHT from the water

san juan island-the local's are so friendly-no attitude like you get in some places-this island itself cannot be beat-more climate diversity then all of Illinois :>)

our concierge/the property manager Kathryn-

she did all our shopping before we arrived-down to chilling the wine and getting the kids cookies. Any questions or concerns we had were addressed immediately
