WEST SIDE ESTATE - **WHALES - WESTSIDE WATERFRONT - HOT TUB - INDOOR POOL - SAUNA - AMAZING VIEWS**

This Estate is on the west side of San Juan Island right around the corner from Lime Kiln Whale Watch Park. That doesn't matter though, because during the whale watching season you should have many opportunities to watch the whales from your large front yard!

The main house is a log home with enchanting stone fireplace offering 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry room, and dining area with a panoramic view of Haro Strait and Vancouver Island, Canada.

Enjoy a dip in the indoor pool (heated at no charge from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend... and can be heated for your stay during the rest of the year for a fee), or relax in the spa or sauna (available year round at no charge).

Also above the separate garage is a large game room, kitchenette with table/chairs, ping pong table, Satellite TV w/DVD, 2 twin size sleeping areas, and exercise equipment. Outside, next to the garage is a basketball court for some daytime fun. What more could you need during your visit except more batteries for your digital camera to capture all those whale pictures!

Firewood is provided in off season

This house has good cell phone reception but will sometimes pick up Canadian cell phone towers.

INDOOR POOL (HEATED AT NO CHARGE FROM MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND THROUGH LABOR DAY WEEKEND... AND CAN BE HEATED FOR YOUR STAY DURING THE REST OF THE YEAR FOR A FEE). SPA AND SAUNA ARE AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND AT NO CHARGE.

Reviewer Comments:

Celebrated my 50th birthday in this wonderful compound. Very well equipped and cared for! Stunning location. Seals sunned on rocks in front every day. In addition to the daily orca show, we saw a fox, a river otter, lots of eagles and other birds, and several deer. We also tracked the ships heading to/from Vancouver. Lots of moving parts in this place, so we needed help from property manager a couple of times. Manager Chris was very attentive.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented the East Side Estate for a week for a multi-generational, family-of-eight vacation. The property was perfect for the varied ages of our group (8 to 70+), with the spacious main house, an in-law cabin, and the multi-purpose game room with sleeping bunks. We each had space for quiet and privacy but were able to come together for meals in the dining room, with its spectacular view of the water (and a telescope),or to sit around the stone fireplace in the evenings. The pool house was in use several times a day - an added bonus(plus we used the basketball court for informal games). The property was well maintained and well equipped with kitchen appliances, dishes, linens, towels, cushions, a grill, games, and sports equipment. From the house or deck we saw seals sunning on rocks at the foot of the lawn, a bald eagle soaring by, and a small herd of deer appearing at sunset each evening. Friday Harbor, where the ferry lands, is a quaint town, with a well-stocked market and interesting shops. Historic Roche Harbor and the 19th-century American and British military camps are also attractions. Nature is never far away to explore on the various beaches, coves, and trails around the island. Over the years, we have rented several houses in the US and Canada for our family get-togethers, and the West Side Estate ranks as one of the best.

What a vacation. The home and facilities were perfect. The kitchen had every appliance possible. The pool, sauna, and hot tub were fantastic. But the most important factor was the location. We saw many orca every day. There were seals, otters, bald eagles, deer, and a black fox all at the property. I'd rate the experience 5 star.

The home was a wonderful canvas to have spectacular family vacation. We saw an incredible whale show every day! We also saw foxes, deer, and a harbor seal. The kids loved the pool and basketball court. We could have stayed even longer.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful week here! We enjoyed seeing the orcas, seals and bald eagles everyday from the house and deck. The property was very clean and had everything we needed. The pool was a perfect temperature and an added bonus. Thank you!
