VACATION RENTAL HOME ON SAN JUAN ISLAND WITH DOCK! NEAR ROCHE HARBOR

There’s nothing like exploring the beautiful San Juan Islands from the water. Boating enthusiasts will love tying up to the private 50 foot float/dock in the “backyard” of Afterglow Cottage, an immaculate manufactured home on the shoreline of Davison Head. There are lights and 30 AMP shore power available, even a lighted ramp from the shore.

The atmosphere of Afterglow Cottage is low-key and unpretentious. Kick off your shoes and sink into an oversize leather chair to read a book, play cards, or just relax in the hot tub above the tranquil waters of Neil Bay. If you must check in on the world, WIFI makes it easy. When it’s time for dinner, you’ll find a nicely provisioned kitchen and a gas BBQ available (or maybe you’ll enjoy fresh seafood if you’ve dropped a crab pot earlier in the day?) When the day’s activities are over, you’ll sleep easy on Select Comfort mattresses.

Afterglow Cottage is near a private strip of beach (known to locals as the isthmus) a good spot to bird watch, observe boat traffic, or just sit on a log and enjoy the glow of the spectacular San Juan Island sunsets. Neil Bay is a quiet and peaceful waterfront neighborhood, but it’s only a 20 minute walk to all the Roche Harbor Resort amenities, which include an airstrip, post office, market, gas station, sculpture park, shops, artist kiosks, spa, kid's pool, bar, café, and fine dining.

                                                We enjoyed our 12-day stay at this peaceful spot. The home is very well-equipped and clean, with a gorgeous view in an upscale neighborhood of waterfront homes. The proximity to Roche Harbor (about 1-1/2 miles away) was a huge plus for us. The dock accommodated our 30-foot Catalina perfectly. Just a note; we unwittingly used the dinghy on the dock (there were no instructions regarding this), and were told strongly by the management company this was strictly prohibited. We were chagrined. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and felt it was a good value.

                                                Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting the Islands and for staying at Afterglow Cottage. I also appreciate you letting me know about the circumstance with the dingy. I am investigating to determine how to make things more clear for future guests - thank you for bringing it to my attention. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay and look forward to your return. Best Regards, General Manager

                                                Three women had a wonderful stay at Afterglow cottage. The location was perfect - close to Roche Harbor. The cottage was very well equipped, the hot tub was an added benefit, and the views incredible. Will definitely return.

                                                Charming little place in great condition. Only negative was that they charge extra for cleaning yet expect you to do most the work! A little pricey but great location, clean and nice setting with dock. We would go back.

                                                Dear Guest - thank you for staying with us in the Islands and for leaving this review, which overall is very positive. On the subject of cleaning fees, in fact that fee is charged so our guests do not have to do the work. We are wondering whether the information presented in the house book was inaccurate in this regard and are having it checked. We apologize for the inconvenience! We hope you will return and stay with us in the Islands again. Best Regards, General Manager

                                                We had a very good experience in the home we stayed in. The homei is a manufactured home so the walls are very thin and you can hear everyone in the home. We knew this going in so it was fine. The home had everything it said in supplies plus some extra. All appliances worked really well. I would recommend a tv be put in the smaller bedroom. We had deer in our front and back that we really enjoyed. The view was absolutely beautiful and we paddleboard right off the dock and saw seals.
