CLASSIC WATERFRONT CABIN WITH GREAT SUNSETS, AND A SUPER LOCATION NEAR ROCHE HARBOR

This classic waterfront vacation cabin on San Juan Island reminds many visitors of blissful childhood vacations, when things were not expected to be fussy or complicated. Our guests who have stayed in this home return year after year to enjoy the laid back atmosphere and island lifestyle (one even puts up his own mailbox)! Sunset Vista is a great choice for a couple or family seeking a casual island getaway.

The home is located down a wooded driveway on a quiet neighborhood street in the desirable Roche Harbor area. The neighboring streets are great for biking and walking while the dining, shopping, and marina activities at Roche Harbor are within a 5 minute drive or easy 20 minute walk.

From the deck there are marvelous views of Spieden Island and you will also have a front row observation post to watch the boating activity heading to and from Roche Harbor and Sydney, BC. On long summer evenings you are positioned to catch those spectacular sunsets over the western sky.

On the main floor, there is a bath with a shower as well as a private bedroom with a queen bed. Other beds are located on an open loft upstairs. This area provides two separate sleeping areas divided by a wall, one with two twin beds and the other with a full size bed. _Please note that the open loft does not provide total privacy for either of the upstairs sleeping areas._ The living room features a wood burning fireplace (wood not supplied) and a built-in daybed.

Sunset Vista is on medium bank waterfront with no direct shoreline access, however it is only a two minute walk to the beautiful neighborhood beach known as The Isthmus.

Reviewer Comments:

Myself and a couple of girlfriends stayed in this adorable cabin for a weekend on the island, and loved every minute! It's tucked away from the hustle and bustle, but still easy to get to. Nothing too fancy, but had all the necessities we wanted, and stunning views! We walked to Roche Harbor one morning, not bad at all. We spent a lot of our time out on the patio watching wildlife and the stunning sunsets! We spotted so many sea lions we lost count, had a few visits from deer, harbor porpoise, and enjoyed the sounds of all the beautiful birds! The house was clean and well kept. We would definitely recommend to others this cabin, and if we're ever in the area again, would love to stay again!

Reviewer Comments:

Surrounded by wildlife, black tailed deer, pesky raccoons, a sea otter eating it's catch on a rock just below the bluff. We named the many seals for their distinct characteristics, as they visited daily, easily seen from deck and cabin. Watching the ships, ferries and various boats was enjoyable and the sunsets were fabulous. The location was great with enjoyable walks to the isthmus and great times exploring nearby sculpture garden, mausoleum, San Juan County Park and Lime Kiln Park. Our only complaints would be uncomfortable deck and living room furniture, noisy construction work on each side of the cabin and a confusing thermostat that turned the heat way down every few hours.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was beautiful, the back deck view is gorgeous. We saw whales and seals! The rooms and beds were comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is wonderful. The internet, while a bit slow on the island, was good enough for us to do our work in the evenings. The only thing that didn't work was the dvd player, but that's an easy fix. If we ever work near Roche Harbor again, we'll be checking the availability of this place.

Reviewer Comments:

The quiet location is outstanding: we greatly enjoyed watching the boats go by and the sunsets were outstanding. The kitchen was well-stocked and the gas grill is new. Overall, the place is modest and a bit outdated, but was adequate for our stay. Heads up to people who might need to use their laptop: the wifi is extremely slow, so we had to use our cell phones as a personal hotspot. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much! Also good to know: they sell fresh seafood out on the dock at Roche Harbor; you have to walk out there a bit to find it. Wished we knew it when we were shopping, but got some at the dock in Friday Harbor that was delicious!

Reviewer Comments:

We thoroughly enjoyed the home and the quiet and beauty of this side of the island. The cabin has a lovely view. The living room was comfortable for the six of us and the kitchen has plenty of room for group cooking. Having cooked in many vacation rentals, I appreciated the small food processor and blender. The negatives were minor: dishes and silver were not necessarily clean. We easily dealt with it and it's off-putting. The kitchen was remarkably disorganized—-also fixable. The deck table needs a sixth chair. I mention these in the hope that management can take care of this for the next occupants. I would come back and recommend the cabin to friends.
