WHALE WATCHING WATERFRONT VACATION HOME ON SAN JUAN ISLAND. HOT TUB, TOO!

You’ll experience the San Juan Islands vacation of your dreams in this absolutely beautiful waterfront rental home built right at the edge of the sea. This premium west side San Juan Island location features fantastic views over the De Haro Straits. You will spend many hours mesmerized by the sound of the waves, panoramic vistas, glorious sunsets, and the seasonal joy of watching Orca whales pass right by your windows. The kitchen, living, and master bedroom all focus on the spectacular vista of deep blue water, snow-capped mountains, and Vancouver Island where the lights of Victoria BC twinkle at dusk.

There's a special niche for all in this gorgeous home. You can worship the sun and dine on an expansive deck twenty feet from the water. On the main level, comfy sofas and chairs will beckon you to converse in the cozy living room by the wood burning fireplace. Around the corner, is a small wet bar and den with overstuffed leather seating. The kitchen is well equipped so you can create an excellent meal, a portion of which might be prepared on the new BBQ on the adjacent deck.

The three bedrooms are all on the main floor and feature soft linens and very comfortable beds. The master has a walk in closet, en-suite bath with jetted tub, its own TV and a gorgeous view as well as a private sun room. A second bath is shared by a guest bedroom with a queen bed and the third bedroom that offers two twin beds and a trundle bed. A powder room and laundry room are also on the main level. Overflow guests can be accommodated on a sleeper sofa and window seat bed on the upper level, where there is also a TV, Foosball table, and bath with steam shower and dry sauna. There is access to a private viewing deck on this level as well.

Within a five minute stroll can be found a secluded pocket cove designated for local neighborhood use only; a beautiful and private place to picnic. Seas the Day is also near San Juan County state park (a great place to launch kayaks), as well as Lime Kiln Park and conservation lands that are woven with hiking trails. When you come home after a good day of exploring all the Island has to offer, a hot tub (only during peak season, otherwise a $300.00 charge + 2 weeks notice during off-season to have hot tub available) will be waiting where you can soak under star-lit nights and watch the cruise ships go by.

PLEASE BE ADVISED. Parties are not permitted under any circumstances and the guest occupancy limit will be strictly enforced during your stay.

The location was perfect for our guests and 2 dogs. Sunsets were fantastic. It's a little dated but house was clean. The deck has a lot of bees so be careful if allergic or don't like bees.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to visit the Islands and for staying at Seas the Day. I also appreciate your candid feedback here. Bees are a problem on the island in late summer although our houses should be equipped with bee traps that ensure their numbers are reduced significantly. I am following up with our staff to ensure this has been done and the traps are cleaned and reset. Thank you again for visiting the Islands and we hope the rest of your experience was a great one. Best Regards, General Manager

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of nine, including grandparents, moms and dads, and three, pre-school grandkids, spent a wonderful week together at Seas the Day in August. One of the many highlights was watching orcas right from our deck! Another favorite was dressing up like pirates and hunting for buried treasure down at the little private cove. The house provided ample room to spread out as needed but also made group dinners and playing music together comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with every appliance, the beds were comfortable and the four bathrooms were a luxury! Sunsets were spectacular and the ever-changing view of the ocean kept us all entertained. We ventured out for day-trips to South Beach, Roche Harbor, The Sculpture Park, the Farmers Market and the County Fair. Some in our party, experienced kayakers and cyclists, would have liked access to kayaks or bicycles without having to sign up for a guided tour with the rental agencies. Maybe the management would consider making these available? The week went fast and we loved every minute. Smugglers Cove is definitely a place we'd all like to visit again.

We enjoyed our stay at Seas the Day. It is a spacious home with a beautiful ocean view. We were fortunate enough to see Orcas from our deck! It is an easy drive to Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor- you definitely will need a car though. Unfortunately, the electronics in the home did not work so we were unable to enjoy a movie or the news after long days outdoors. There was no compensation offered for the lack of working equipment.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented both "Seas the Day" and "Haida House" for our family reunion. There were fourteen of us, with 8 in "Seas the Day" and 6 st Haida House. Both groups loved their places. The only drawback was that the two places were further from each other than we would have liked. At "Seas the Day" we were especially happy with the gorgeous sunsets, its proximity to Lime Kiln Point, and the bald eagle nested in the tree right over the house!

The home is beautiful with plenty of space for the party of 8 we had with us to stretch out. We spent a ton of time out on the decks and cooked in every night (plenty of utensils, etc, in the kitchen). What a beautiful view, great neighbors and super easy access to everything else on the islanf.

Our stay at this rental was wonderful. The location was excellent and the view alone was worth the price of admission. We saw some gorgeous sunsets from the large balcony. The house was comfortable and very well equipped. Kyle and the rest of the staff at San Juan Vacation Rentals were very kind and extremely helpful. Would recommend this rental to everyone.
