Bedrooms 2

Property type house

Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

WHALE WATCH POINT - WATERFRONT! The Whale Watch Point guest house is a slice of heaven - watch and listen to the Orcas meander by, enjoy one of the best views from land of the Lime Kiln Lighthouse, and sit back and relax gazing out to the wide open Haro Strait.

The guest house is beautifully and tastefully furnished with a full kitchen, dining area and living room that look out to the water. The two bedrooms, each with queen size beds, are wonderfully appointed with comfort in mind.

The grounds of property are a wonderful representation of the island landscape with madronas, firs and rocky knolls and includes trails to sitting areas where you can enjoy watching the marine activities.

**This property is high bank waterfront and not recommend to groups with children.**

This house does not have good cell phone reception.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented the Whale Watch Point property for a quiet, secluded time with nature. We were not disappointed!! Eagles, gulls, ducks, cormorants,and porpoises were visible often. We were too late to see the whales, but hope to return someday! All was in perfect working condition!!! Great place but satellite reception was spotty because of rain.

The location was the BEST! Overlooking Haro Strait with a view of Lime Kiln lighthouse! The beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed. There were puzzles to do at night. It was isolated and quiet. We loved it so much!!

Reviewer Comments:

Very nice property with great view of Lime Kiln Point Lighthouse. Very private and very nice. The only suggestion would be is to replace the old coffee maker and some of the cooking utensils were dated as the can opener was a bit rusty. TV was smaller than my laptop screen. One of the bedrooms didn't have night stands for the bed. Now these are just our little suggestions. We would absolutely stay here again and will recommend this property to our friends.

Reviewer Comments:

Furnishings are early Goodwill. Towels were close to being rags, fraying at the edges and complete with bleach stains. The bench, which is the main photo on the advertisement, was very weathered and splintered. Trees in front of the guest cottage -- which is the rental -- partially block the views from the small deck and certainly from the ground level. This is a high bank property with no easy access to the water's edge. VRBO/Home Away charged a 9% "servicing fee" which we hadn't been aware of and didn't appreciate. VRBO listing said a fee would be charged, but didn't specify the amount, so we thought $140+ was exorbitant and the fee didn't show up until after booking which meant I couldn't cancel without a fee, either. I wasn't able to directly contact the owner with any questions, although I was asked to provide a statement about why I was asking to rent and who was coming. I thought owners paid the fee, which made the very much-used bed and bath linens even more offensive. We found the bath mat and a few more towels after two days; they were in the dryer. Forks and knives (only a few knives) were thrown into one communal compartment. No steak knives. Surprisingly, there was a spiralizer in an upper cabinet. I don't know if it worked, I couldn't reach it. Same for the wine glasses. Kitchen soap dispenser didn't work. Coffee maker was old and took forever to brew. I liked the view of the Lighthouse, and we did see Orca. The cottage is right on the flight path so we also saw floatplanes and fixed wheel aircraft. Don't arrive after dark for your first night; the path is a bit tricky and the cottage hard to find for the first time.

Owner's Response: Hi Dale, thank you for taking the time to review Whale Watch Point. We appreciate all feedback on our properties, as we are always trying to find ways to improve the stays of our guests. I am sorry to hear that VRBO surprised you with their servicing fee. This charge does not have anything to do with our company but it is still disappointing to hear about from our guests. We will take all your comments and review what needs to be done at this property to improve future stays at Whale Watch Point. I'm glad to hear the property lived up to it's name and you saw Orca Whale's on your trip. We hope you will use San Juan Property Management for any upcoming adventures on San Juan Island. Best Regards, San Juan Property Management Team

Amazing location and a fine modern-ish house. Very comfortable plus we actually saw a pod of Orcas swim by in December. Rare! Good hikes around the island too.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was just perfect: tidy, clean, well-equipped and above all a breath-taking view over the bay to the Olympic peninsula and Canada. The house really lived up to it's name, one evening we could watch a pod of about twenty orcas roaming the cove just in front of our balcony. We could hear them breach and communicate. An unforgettable experience!
