Overview

About the property

House, 3+ Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Westcott Bay is a quiet retreat from the energy of Roche Harbor Resort ... yet only a 5-minute walk to one of the country's finest resorts that includes a spa, market, clothing store and more. Our home sleeps up to 8 comfortably and is a great place to create memories for families with children.

We are constantly updating the home with new furniture, bedding, linens, and original artwork. There is a fully appointed kitchen with quartz counters that has everything you need for cooking and entertaining. There is even an iMac and wireless internet, though you’ll probably spend your time outdoors …

Soak in the serenity of Westcott Bay and its abundant wildlife. Enjoy morning coffee on the deck and watch eagles fly overhead and pelicans sunning themselves on mooring buoys. Head down the stairs to the tidal flats and dig for clams at low tide. Sip your wine and watch the seals and otters play right in front of you. Or make a stop at the dog park on the short walk to Roche Harbor Resort.

If you’re driving, it’s a quick trip (or a casual paddle on a paddle board or kayak) to English Camp, a historic national park with great hiking trails. A bit further down the west side, check out Lime Kiln state park where you can literally watch Orcas play right in front of you!

At night, roast s'mores at the fire pit and see stars so bright, you’ll wonder if the earth has somehow moved closer to them. Come enjoy all there is to offer in this special spot … and make memories to last a lifetime.

The perfect rental home for a family

  • 5 of 5

This was THE perfect house for our family. We had three generations and the house had something for everyone. It was as if they anticipated our every need from childrens dishes and sippy cups for kids to a coffee maker in upstairs bathroom for those early mornings. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. Every possible piece of equipment was provided. Every time I thought the house couldn't possible have what we needed, I was wrong. The view is so spectacular that I don't think we turned on the tv once. The location was perfect for exploring the whole island. Our children loved having a campfire every night. Thank you again for a wonderful week.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful and peaceful stay! We did use the kayaks in the evenings and had such a grand time being able to get out on the water! Exceptional property!!!! Close to Roche Harbor and the Art park was a wonderful experience, ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE!!!!! House stocked with everything anyone could ask for, even 4 bikes and a pingpong table in garage!!! The 4 bedrooms were very well set up and ample space, larger than most!!!

Gorgeous and plenty of room for all of our family!

Thank you Steve and Beverley we all appreciated your home, as it became ours for 4 wonderful days!

P.S Our memorial and bench dedication all went well. Bench sets at port by totem poles ----- Demi put the saying, " Every man dies, but not every man really lives."

And I must say that fit Gary Antzoulatos to the tee!!!!

Magical Roche Harbor Retreat and SJI

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our Spring Break vacation at Roche Harbor Retreat. The location of the home, the setup, and all of the extras of the home were well above expectations. We enjoyed our mornings lounging, watching TV, birdwatching over the lake, enjoying music, and cooking up brunch meals for the family. Daytime activities were all out on the island and down in Friday Harbor, which is an easy 10 minute drive. Evenings we came home cooked and baked, and finished every night out by the fire pit roasting s'mores! My kids and I could not have been happier. We are looking forward to visiting again in the Summer. Thank you guys for a lovely set up!

Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the cabin for 5 nights over spring break. This is the island off season so many of the services were more limited with seasonal hours, and in some cases closed until April. Despite that, we found the cabin very well equipped with lots of things on the islands to keep us entertained but not over scheduled. We enjoyed the fire ring several nights and made s'mores, we took several hikes, went to the alpaca farm, saw a movie, and enjoyed day excursions on the neighboring islands. We loved Roche Harbor and enjoyed our daily walk from the cabin for breakfast. The sourdough batter thin pancakes were incredible! The owners provide very nice amenities such as lots of spices and dry goods to use from their pantry, plenty of paper goods, and nice higher end quality soaps and cleaners. Those little touches were quite nice and separates this VRBO from many others we have stayed. Everything was neat and clean and we felt right at home. I would not hesitate to book this little gem again.

Our home has the best of both worlds. We are on the quiet side of Roche Harbor, yet only a short 5 minute walk to Roche Harbor Resort. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching seabirds on and eagles above Westcott Bay, the most abundant wildlife bay on San Juan Island.
