About Dawn and Roger Mortara

My husband and I are retired and live in California. I wanted a place that would be a home-away-from- home in the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in Seattle and I still have family and friends there. I'm a quilter, my husband collects vinyl records and we share our lives with 2 cats.

Dawn and Roger Mortara purchased this house in 2011

Why Dawn and Roger Mortara chose Camano Island

I have lived in So. Calif. for many years now but I still miss the Northwest. We looked at some homes on Whidbey but childhood friends suggested Camano and that's where we found the prefect vacation home.

What makes this house unique

Camano Island is so beautiful - the water, the trees, the fresh air! The peace and quiet of the neighborhood. And I was delighted to find so many good restaurants and fun places to browse and shop. I'm looking forward to making more discoveries on Camano.

Quiet and relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very well cared for and clean. The space was perfect for our trip to our daughters wedding. My wife and I comfortably stayed in the house with my in-laws, son and his girlfriend. There was room for everyone. The view would have been fantastic if the forest fires in Canada hadn't blocked the view of the Olympic Mountains. The large double car garage was a great bonus. This was the first time my car has ever been garaged over night.

Thanks to Dawn for allowing us to stay an extra 3 nights when one of our party had to be hospitalized in Everett. Knowing we had a beautiful place to stay made the ordeal of the emergency hospital stay a little more bearable.

We would definitely book this place again.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting Dawn's property and once again we were not dissapointed. As soon as you walk in the door you notice how clean it is. Being winter we needed to use heat and each room has their own thermostat which made it easy for everyone to regulate to their own liking. Plus the gas fireplace was a bonus. The kitchen is fairly well stocked and we managed to put on a Christmas dinner for 12 without too much difficulty (I did bring a roaster pan from home). The use of the two car garage was a luxury with the cold weather we experienced. Good size master bath (shower is a bit small) and plenty of linens for both bathrooms. Would recommend this home for anyone wanting to visit Camano Island or surrounding area.

A lovely and peaceful home.

  • 5 of 5

The home on Camano Island was exactly as described. Myself and 4 other woman stayed here while exploring the area, hiking, kayaking and relaxing and dining on seafood. Loved all the ways to just sit and enjoy the view! I would stay again in a heartbeat.
