About the property

WHALES, EAGLES, SUNSETS & KAYAK LAUNCH ON THE SPECTACULAR WEST SIDE - DOG FRIENDLY TOO!

When you stay at Three Coves Hideaway, you’ll enjoy a San Juan Island location that is second to none. The home faces west over Haro Straight, so you will bask in amazing sunsets and have a view of the twinkling lights of Victoria BC at night. Oh, and since you’ll have a front row seat over the migratory route of our resident Orcas whales, it’s very likely that you’ll hear them blowing and be able to watch them doing their whale thing right from your deck! Three Coves is also adjacent to beautiful San Juan County Park, a world-renowned destination for kayaking. A path leads from the property to the park so those so motivated might carry a kayak down a path that leads to the park. (Those less motivated might simply drive a minute or two to the beach.) There is also a path that leads downward to a private cove that is shared with a few nearby residences.

Couples and families will find this home spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, featuring granite counters, a deluxe gas stove, a large island capped with butcher block, and all the household items you need for meal preparation. The great room includes a dining table, elevated bar table, plush leather seating, a cozy wood-burning fireplace, and window seats focused to the view. The master bedroom is also on this main level, featuring a king size bed and en-suite bath with jetted tub, separate shower, and dual vanities. A powder room is also on this main level.

Upstairs, a large loft overlooks the living room below. This is where you’ll head to watch satellite TV, listen to music, and play a game of pool. One of the sofas opens to form a queen size bed. Two additional bedrooms are located downstairs. One offers a private deck and a second king size bed, the other bedroom is equipped with both a twin bed and a double bed. These bedrooms share a bath with shower and dressing table. A laundry/utility room is also on this lower level. It is impossible not to have an incredible vacation experience when you stay at Three Coves Hideaway.

WARNING, THERE AREN’T MANY ISLAND HOMES THAT OFFER THIS LOCATION AND LEVEL OF COMFORT SO THREE COVES BOOKS UP EARLY!

Please note that if you are bring a pet the damage waiver is not applicable. The full security deposit is required.

Reviewer Comments:

We spent four wonderful nights on San Juan Island at Three Coves near San Juan County Park. Having spent many summers camping at San Juan County Park this location has a special place in our hearts. Finding a house so close to the park on this side of the island was such a fantastic surprise! The house was so spacious and the property was beautiful to explore. We hope to visit again someday! We had a few small issues but wanted to alert you to them simply for the benefit of you having the information. -We found a few soiled cooking dishes in the cupboard when we went to use them. We washed and returned them but thought you would want to know. -Also, there is a large yellow jacket nest on the path going down to the beach - it's on the left side just after you turn the corner and start the descent. -An incredibly large tree spider came visiting from under the dishwasher. After much jumping and screaming we did manage to kill and dispose of it. -Being allergic to feathers caused a bit of a problem but in hindsight we should have asked about down pillows and comforters. -Knowing ahead of time we could not wear shoes in the house would have been helpful as we would have brought inside only slippers. I don't recall seeing that in the information we received.

Our family had a wonderful time celebrating a 70th birthday and a 45th wedding anniversary. The weather was perfect which allowed us to use the spacious deck area to gather and to eat. The deck was also a place to spot whales and watch all types of water craft passing by. A short hike below the house is a nice gravel beach. We were able to launch a small motor boat less than a 1/4 mile away at a public park. The property was accurately described. The kitchen was well equipped although a bit crowded due to the large island. The loft area was great for playing pool or watching TV. There was a variety of bedroom sizes and plenty of bathrooms that were well supplied. We had a memorable 4 days at Three Coves and would love to go back again.

Reviewer Comments:

San Juan Island is amazing, it was wonderful to have a house where it could be serviced. Had a few problems with minor issues and a handyman was sent to fix them. As far as the description of the home itself it was accurate. Although what they don't tell you is that the property is right next-door to the San Juan Island County campgrounds. Be prepared for lots of noise and screaming children. I did enjoy the campfire smells at night but the screaming children Ruined the peace and quite I was looking forward to. As for the "privat beach" well it is shared with the campgrounds, not private and anyway shape or form. I actually call those false advertising. The home it's self was fairly clean with the exception of the floors the first night while unpacking I sliced my foot open was shards of glass that were left on the floor.

Great 4 days. We had 2 families and grandma (8 people). This place is very livable for a group size of around 8. We were able to move in quickly, make meals easily, have enough room to take a break from each other from time to time and have periodic personal whale shows from the deck. Quiet at night with relaxing breezes coming in windows.

Reviewer Comments:

When we arrived the view was amazing. Watched whales go by a couple of the days we were there. Little island just off shore was great to watch bald and golden eagles fish for salmon. Saw 7 on it a one time. Rooms were good size, kitchen was cramped with too large of an island, made cooking difficult. Master was nice and bath was nice but carpet throughout house desperately needed replacing especially in Master bath, not a fan of bathroom carpet. We had a couple issues with house itself. #1 oven didn't work and we were not told until we opened it. Three days later it was fixed, not good for a family of 6 and three 20 something boys. #2 it has no A/C and very few windows that open, so not much ventilation, plus no curtains on windows that face West, not good. Upstairs loft was a sauna and could not be used for most of trip. #3 master bedroom was missing a curtain so had to use a sheet and guest room had none, very uncomfortable for our daughter. A few other minor things that were overlooked from their cleaning crew, but otherwise a nice experience. If they can fix the problems this house would be our yearly rental.
