Property description

Every Day is Different and Every Season is wonderful in Anacortes! ROMANTIC GETAWAY or BEST FRIENDS RETREAT Serenity by the Sea is a nautical and serene getaway privately nestled above the main floor of the house with a separate guest entry. This cozy getaway with bountiful views boasts a full kitchen, dining area, living room , bedroom and bath 900sf unit.

Serenity by the Sea sleeps two (2) people max either in the queen bed bedroom/bath or if you will be using as a friends retreat - the reading nook is the size of a twin bed 70inches long and 36inches wide with a comfy pad that transforms into a bed.

OCEAN VIEWS Ocean views abound from this second story guest quarter. The kitchen and dining areas have views of Burrow's Island/Bay, Allan Island and Skyline Marina while the bedroom has a beautiful view of Guemes Channel with the San Juan Ferry arriving and departing from the Ship Harbor.

WALK TO THE FERRY We are within walking distance to the San Juan Ferry Terminal on a nice day, three (3) miles from historic downtown Anacortes, one (1) mile from Washington Park and Skyline Marina. Ask us for the short cuts and easiest safest walks to and from the Ferry.

GOLF Outdoors we have a professional Synturf putting green for the avid golfer. Very fun for putting practice. Bring your putting games to challenge each other!

GREAT LOCATION Our location is perfect for visiting surrounding areas of La Conner (17 miles), Oak Harbor (23 miles), Mount Vernon (20 miles), Whidbey Island (56 miles), Deception Pass (13 miles), Coupeville (33 miles) and of course the beautiful San Juan Islands. Anacortes is known as the gateway to the San Juans - Friday Harbor, Roche Harbor, Shaw Island, Orcas Island and Lopez Island. Bellingham is about 20 minutes up I-5. Bring your passport for Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada - it's an easy drive or you can make a same day trip with a Washington Ferry once they ramp up running 2 ferries to Canada - usually in June of each year.

OUTDOOR PARADISE Whether you like boating, festivals, arts, good eats, kayaking, scuba diving, whale watching, photography, beachcombing, shopping, antiques, quilting/knitting/crochet, wildlife, fishing, crabbing, shrimping, bird watching, walking, hiking, running, bicycling or just relaxing -- our home by the Ferry is the perfect place for your getaway!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We purchased our home in Anacortes in late 2013. The beautiful and warm feelings in this house abound and we hope to carry the previous owners legacy on for Serenity by the Sea. The location is extremely serene and relaxing with beautiful views. We both instantly felt at home upon our first entry into the house. With our location close to the ferry (it’s literally within walking distance) we knew this was the house for us. We love the small town atmosphere and all the charm it brings. Anacortes still takes a yearly town photo and has local parades/festivals every weekend in the summertime. This is all enhanced by the friendly nature of the locals and the good restaurants. We see ourselves in Anacortes when we retire and we hope you enjoy our home as much as we do! We love to share the view and the peaceful stay!

Why the Owner Chose Anacortes, WA, USA:
Every Day is Different and Every Season is wonderful in Anacortes! Anacortes is a great place to live. The different seasons are all beautiful and summer is like a celebration! The views from our home are incredible and the small town atmosphere in Anacortes is very relaxing! The weather is mild year round.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every Day is Different and Every Season is wonderful in Anacortes! The one bedroom one bath unit is 900 square feet with Ocean Views from nearly all windows. We have a professional synturf putting green in the front with a view overlooking the San Juan Ferry. Free Wifi. See our other main floor unit in this house with separate entrance and very private from the upstairs apartment (main floor sleeps 4) homeaway #3671226
