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.

About Steven and Beverly Carleton
We purchased this home in late 2013 from the original owner who built it in 1995. We love the area and intend to live here full time in the years ahead and are happy to share all the beauty and experiences with you.

Beautiful home with attention to detail
The home has a great location in the woods, on the waterfront on Westcott Bay, walking distance from Roche Harbor. Very Peaceful. Generously sized and equipped with attention to detail. Ping-pong table, bicycles, Kayaks and SUP boards. Fully equipped kitchen.
No concerns or complaints. Very pleased and would be delighted to come back.
Weekend getaway with my sisters and a few close friends...couldn’t have picked a more perfect house and location!
I look forward to future longer stays!
Wonderful! Can’t wait to return!
We’ve enjoyed using Home Away for various family trips over the last few years, and while we’ve always loved the convenience and pleasant options that give us a chance to break away from hotels, it wasn’t until this week that we truly felt we had encountered a true “home” while we were away!
This lovely family home feels just like that, warm and embracing, we enjoyed cooking several meals for our family here, which was such a lovely balance to the constant eating out that generally happens when traveling. We played hours of games at night, with laughter, conversation and all with a spectacular view.
Our last visit to the islands and Roche Harbor inspired us to invite our family in from Texas to embrace the beauty of this region, and this wonderful home has inspired a tradition where we hope to build upon those memories for years to come.
Thank you so much for having us, we truly could not have imagined a more wonderful home to come back to each night after exploring all day.
Thank you for the kind words Heather ... we can't wait for you to return and bring more family and friends!
House is beautiful and had everything we needed.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. The house was clean and provides everything we needed and more. We enjoyed paddle boarding and kayaking on the beach right behind the house and had a hotdog roast at the fire pit. The beds are comfy and the fireplace kept us warm. Owners are great and responded to messages right away. We will definitely be returning.
Thanks for the kind words Jake ... so happy you and your family enjoyed your time on the island. We’ll be sure to get the firewood stocked up for your next visit!
Welcoming and wonderful home inside and out!
We stayed here with our family for a quick off season getaway and it was a wonderful experience.
Big beautiful comfy home with everything we needed and more.
Elegant and comfortable waterfront home
I stayed here with my two daughters for a month while we waited to close on our new house here. The home is very warm and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was fully appointed and easy to find everything we needed to cook. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The bedding was luxurious and the view from the master made you hardly want to leave. There was plenty of room upstairs for many guests to sleep comfortably. We watched movies in the living room on cold rainy nights. The sofa and chairs were beautiful and comfortable. We walked the neighborhood every day with our dog. We especially loved being able to walk to Roche Harbor to buy groceries or have lunch. I developed a new appreciation for water birds during our stay. They were amazing as they hunted for food. They looked like armadas working together. We saw eagles and seals as well. Even though it was December and not the best time to give an accurate account of the island, we had a lovely time. We felt very much at home right away. The taste level of this home is very high level. It doesn’t feel like a vacation rental but more like a lovely second home. I would recccomend it to anyone and I would buy it if it were for sale!
Thanks for the kind words Laura ... we are so happy you enjoyed your stay over the holidays and that you are settling in to your new island home. Not that you’ll need to, but you are always welcome back!
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.
