Property description

Starfish Suite is a 1,500 square foot two bedroom, two bath apartment tucked away on a private road in a small upscale waterfront neighborhood, one mile from town and away from tourists and ferry traffic. Owners vacate the property when guests arrive. Set on a half acre with 220 feet of waterfront on the point of North Bay, the property has organic wildflower gardens going down to the ocean and a meditation garden overlooking the bay. The leafy, private road offers a buffer from ferry traffic, tourists, and unwanted visitors.

Minimum Stay is three nights from October through April (off~season rate is $275.00 per night) and seven nights from May through September (high~season rate is $350.00 per night).

LIVING ROOM
The sunken Living Room, with floor-to-ceiling windows, captures the grandeur of the ocean, giving you a postcard view of Dinner Island, Griffin Bay and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. There is a 46" Smart TV with Dish 200, Netflix, Amazon, HBO, HBOGO, WiFi, a stereo and a small library with over 100 books. A French Godin wood stove is always set for a fire.
THE SUITE BEDROOMS
Romantic and soothingly quiet, the private master bedroom has an en suite bath, large walk-in closet, and opens up to the spacious 70' deck, a perfect spot for morning coffee and bird watching.
The bedrooms have luxury bed linens, hypo-allergenic pillows and spectacular views of Griffin Bay and the Olympic Mountains.
Drift off to sleep with the lapping of waves and a blanket of stars overhead, wake up to a brilliant sunrise and the call of birdsong.
THE KITCHEN
Overlooking Jackson Beach and Griffin Bay, the kitchen is fully stocked for a comfortable stay. We provide gourmet coffee, teas, spices, and, in the fridge is a chilled bottle of champagne to begin your celebration!
The dining area seats six and opens up to the expansive deck.
THE 70' AZEK DECK
Just steps to the ocean, the 70 foot new Azek deck is perfect for entertaining and relaxation with chaise lounges, bistro and patio tables, a Weber BBQ, and a double hammock. It is a favorite spot for our guests.
TWO BATHROOMS
Both bathrooms are tiled and have teak floor mats, thick towels, natural soaps and body lotions, and a hair dryer in each bathroom.
LAUNDRY ROOM
There is a large washer and dryer, extra linens and towels, an ironing board, iron and a steamer.
THE CIRCULAR BLUE STONE PATIO
Making pizza in the wood-fired stone pizza oven is a very unique cooking experience, one that chefs love.
The outdoor kitchen has a table setting for six, lighting, granite counter tops, a stainless steel sink, refrigerator and a Fire Magic BBQ. Chinese lanterns hang from two stately birch trees.
WILDLIFE
We are home to a myriad of shore birds and song birds, two resident eagles, 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, Starfish Suite offers a "bird's eye" view of living life on the tip of the ocean in the San Juan Islands.
A STAY AT STARFISH SUITE IS PERFECT FOR
Beauty
Tranquility
Relaxation
FUN!
Thank you for viewing and have a great day!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Building our family home overlooking Griffin 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 on 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 overlooks Griffin Bay and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. Many of our guests walk into the quaint town of Friday Harbor. Our private road secludes us from the hustle and bustle of tourists and ferry traffic.

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.
