Peaceful, Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was everything I needed it to be. Every convenience of being at home, an incredible view of the water and mountains. I didn't get to spend as much time here as I would have liked because of visiting with family and friends, but it was a great place to get some peace and quiet in between visits. My last day there, I sat in front of the fireplace looking out at the view with coffee in hand feeling completely relaxed. It was a great memory to leave with. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the very strong sulfur smell in the water when I showered. Other than that, everything was great. The owner is very quick to respond. Thank you for sharing your vacation home Cyril!!

Gorgeous and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The little house was comfortable and cozy for our Autumn get-away. The property was an easy location for exploring the island and the state park. The kitchen was well-equipped and I loved enjoying the view while cooking for our group. We took time to relax on the bluff: breathing in the evergreen air, soaking up beautiful sunsets, building a fire and roasting marshmallows… a taste of camping with all the comforts of home. The caution about the cliff is legitimate! But for adults it's a great spot.

5 Stars is not enough!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin?!?! Let's begin with WOW! (wonderfully perfect) What's so great about this home is that each person (or couple) get their own side of the house... perfect for privacy. Both bedrooms have a queen bed and full bathroom. The living room and kitchen are at the center of the house. The photos do not do this place justice.

One night, while having a campfire, we heard splashing in the Saratoga passage. The next day we asked an expert who told us it was probably a transient Orca! Most mornings, we were entertained by Anna's hummingbirds and Stellar jays. The day we had to leave, we could see a harbor seal playing in the water. (Thanks to the owner who left binoculars!) The property is beautifully landscaped with roses and, what I think is fuchsia, to attract the hummingbirds.

Comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, open floor plan... where do I stop?!?! Not disappointed and pleasantly surprised. LOVED IT!!!

Gorgeous view

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable, well-maintained home. We enjoyed sitting on the deck as well as using the firepit at night. This was our first time on Camano Island, and we recommend this house. Beach access is nearby.

What a view

  • 5 of 5

It was a great location, well equipped with everything you need and the fire pit is a great extra (grab wood). Comfortable beds and living space with a big deal. The water is well and smells horribly sulfuric which I guess is normal per the welcome letter but this was the only downside.
