WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME ON SAN JUAN ISLAND

This San Juan Island vacation rental home offers sweeping views across San Juan Channel to Orcas Island and other surrounding islands. Floor to ceiling windows invite the exquisite beauty of nature into your living room, kitchen, and dining areas - the waterfront is so near that it feels like part of the living room! The natural environment surrounding this home provides frequent sightings of deer, eagles, porpoise, seals, sea lions, and on occasion, Orca and Minke Whales. This home is an ideal setting for those who enjoy reading, fishing, cooking, hiking, and just relaxing to the sound of the sea.

The living room opens to the deck and is furnished with wall-to-wall carpeting, leather seating, DVD/CD & i-pod player. Wool Pendleton and fleece blankets are thoughtfully provided to keep you cozy while sitting outside by the fire pit or at the waterside bench. Two queen-sized bedrooms face the water and enjoy their own private decks, reading areas & radios. The master bedroom features a seating area and the master bath offers a walk-in shower. A third bedroom contains two twin beds, a second DVD player and a concealed Maytag washer and dryer.

Gourmet cooking and entertaining are encouraged in this vacation home's well-equipped kitchen that offers a bread machine, ice maker, service for 12, serving dishes, candles, new dishwasher, high-tech induction stove top, seasonings, two ovens, & cookbooks. There is a gas BBQ just outside and sage, thyme, rosemary, chives, mint and other spices growing in containers for your use. A wood stove in the dining room (free firewood is provided) adds to a cozy evening environment.

Reach the rocky shoreline on an easy path down 4 steps; you might fish for your dinner as fishing, crabbing, and shrimping gear are provided. Hikers will enjoy discovering the Old Growth Forest Reserve just three blocks away. At Channel House, you can blissfully escape from the world but if you decide to tune in there is a new 55" HDTV for internet, movie channels, and Blueray DVD that can be used with 3D or regular video discs. Cell coverage can be spotty so there is a land line with free long distance calls to US, Mexico and Canada.

Channel House is located at the end of a private road, just 2.5 miles from the ferry landing and the Town of Friday Harbor, where you will enjoy many shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved our stay at Channel House! In fact, we can't stop thinking about it! The location is so perfect that it makes it a little difficult to ever want to leave the house to explore the island. We forced ourselves to explore and we loved San Juan Island, but nothing beat relaxing, fishing and crabbing with the kids down at the waters edge in our own backyard. The house itself is comfortable, clean and spacious. Hope to return one day soon!

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I had a lovely stay at Channel House - four blissful days of quiet repose on the waterfront, complete with orca, eagle, kingfisher, deer, crab, and other wildlife sightings! The house was well-equipped and our baby loved the outdoor spaces. Perfect location as just a short drive (and an hour's walk) from Friday Harbor. Only slight hitch we had when we arrived was that the wifi code provided prior to our arrival was incorrect but with a location as pretty as this, who needs wifi?!

We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is in our top 3 ! Very comfortable home, over the top views, beautiful grounds, daily deer visiting, eagle sitting in pine above deck, great location w/ balance of nature and short distance to Friday Harbor...easy to find. Driveway a bit tricky...but adds to the uniqueness of the home. This house was simply wonderful for our group of 5. Soo happy we did not settle and stay in Friday Harbor...

Reviewer Comments:

We loved this house. It was cozy, inviting and the views are amazing. Close to town, but it felt remote and private. SJI was wonderful of course, and this property helped us even enjoy the rainy days spent inside. We weren't bothered by the dated interiors that some have mentioned - it is helpful to know about that in advance in case you are expecting something different, but overall we found the property charming. We'd rent here again.
