Property description

Set on a half-acre at the end of a private lane overlooking Griffin Bay, Starfish Suite is designed for indoor-outdoor living with a 67' deck overlooking Griffin Bay. The shimmering sea that surrounds Starfish Suite, with 220 feet of waterfront, offers spectacular post-card views of Dinner Island, Griffin Bay and the Olympic Mountains. Southern exposure provides all day sun. We are one mile from historic Friday Harbor and the ferry landing.

The well-appointed 1,500 square foot two bedroom, two bath vacation rental is on a private road in a quiet upscale neighborhood, one mile from town and away from the hustle and bustle of tourists.

Minimum Stay is three nights from October through April and seven nights from May through September.

If you love vacationing on the ocean, watching awesome sunrises and sunsets, exploring tide pools, listening to birdsong, taking a walk into town past Victorian houses, or renting a paddle board at Jackson Beach to explore Griffin Bay, then this is the spot for you. Starfish Suite is ideal for one guest or six guests. Not too big and not too small. Perfect for a family holiday or a romantic get-a-way. The location is convenient for guests who want to be close to Friday Harbor, the San Juan Golf and Country Club, and popular Jackson Beach, an easy walking sandy beach with kayak and paddle board rentals, beach volleyball, restrooms, a free boat launch and three picnic sites complete with fire rings and BBQ grills. Starfish Suite is also an excellent choice for those who wish to explore other islands or take a day trip to beautiful Victoria, Canada.

A DESCRIPTION
The sunken Living Room, with floor-to-ceiling windows, captures the grandeur of the ocean, giving you a perfect view of Dinner Island, Griffin Bay and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. There is a 46" Smart TV with Dish, Netflix, Amazon and WiFi, and a bookshelf filled with best sellers and local books on the San Juan Islands. Two love seats in front of the french wood-stove fold out into twin beds.

The sunny kitchen has a pantry that is well stocked with goodies, spices, sparkling water, teas and coffee. The dining area, which opens up to the ocean-front deck, seats two to six guests comfortably.

The romantic Master Bedroom, with en suite bath and a large walk-in closet, has ocean and mountain views. Both bedrooms have 100% organic cotton sheets and 100% Egyptian cotton duvets. Drift off to sleep with the lapping of waves and a blanket of stars overhead.

The bathrooms have tile flooring and teak bath mats. Each bathroom has a hair dryer, natural shampoos, conditioners, soaps and body lotions.

The Utility Room has a large washer and dryer, extra linens and towels, an ironing board, iron and a steamer.

The spacious 67 foot deck has a BBQ for alfresco dining, several seating areas, a double hammock, two chaise lounges, a high table with two chairs and views to knock your socks off! There are three organic garden areas filled with fragrant wildflowers plus a meditation area called "the quiet garden". The circular blue-stone stone, called the Pizza Palazza, is a chef's dream with a stone wood-fired pizza oven, a fully equipped outdoor kitchen with granite counter tops, outdoor lighting, a professional Magic Chef BBQ, and a stainless steel sink and refrigerator. Two beautiful chaise lounges overlook the bay. This is the most popular spot for many of our guests.

Our little piece of heaven is home to a myriad of shore birds and song birds, our two resident eagles, porpoise, raccoon, fox, deer, and river otter. Wake up in the morning to the honking of geese, the eagle's shrill call, or the beautiful song of the loons. A nature lover's paradise, the half acre property offers a "bird's eye" view of life on the tip of the ocean in the San Juan Islands.

Thank you for viewing the Starfish Suite and have a great day!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Building our family home on the point of North Bay 30 years ago has been one of our most rewarding and exciting life adventures. At that time, San Juan County had no set back limits on where to build, so we sited our home fifty feet from the edge of the ocean. Today, it would be impossible to build that close to the water due to set-back regulations. We love living on the island, raising our family in a safe and tranquil environment, and enjoying the quiet beauty that surrounds us. We have been active in community services and volunteer work on the island. David is a retired naval officer, engineer, and real-estate broker and I am a retired United Airlines International flight attendant and teacher. We are originally from Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
Starfish Suite is well located for walks into town and Jackson's Beach. There is always something to do in town, whether your pleasure is fine dining, boutique shopping, visiting our new state of the art Art Institute on Spring Street, going to the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, cruising on the Victorian Clipper to Canada, attending our San Juan Community Theatre, taking a whale~watching cruise, or just mingling with the 'locals' (who sometimes stop in the middle of the sidewalk to play their fiddles!). Our Private Road is in a quiet neighborhood that overlooks North Bay, Griffin Bay and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. One incredible joy living so close to the sea is the intimate views of the bird and sea-life that surround us. North Bay is a microcosm of what it is like living on the ocean. One is always reminded of the special beauty where we live, whether it is paddle boarding across the bay to Dinner Island, bicycling into town, listening to birdsong, or watching a mother deer carefully guiding her twin fawns away from harm's way. We truly live in a magical paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Jackson's Beach is one mile from our home. Beach activities include swimming, beach volley ball, picnicking, sailing, kayaking, wind-surfing and paddle-boarding. We do have private parking for your car with space for a 20 foot boat, which can be launched from nearby Jackson's Beach.
