About the property

New Listing! Exclusive 10 acres atop Cady Mnt. View of Ocean & Vancouver Island

This is a special Northwest home. We know you'll relax and decompress in this unique and serene location and enjoy the very special place that is San Juan Island. The home is outfitted to suit the vacationer with walls of windows and skylights to let the warm Pacific Northwest Sun flow throughout the home.

As you step into this contemporary vacation home perched atop Cady mountain, you are drawn to the wall of windows and stunning forested ocean views encompassing Canada's Vancouver Island and Haro Strait ocean view. Step out to the wrap around decks. This newly custom built home is a warm and friendly environment and allows you to participate in all that nature has to offer. Orcas, deer, fox, eagle and a myriad of birds. Watch international shipping traffic, whale watching boats and sailboats. Track the maritime traffic with your laptop from any room in the house with high-speed Wi-Fi. Make good use of the telescope and binoculars! Cook your gourmet meals at home in the fully equipped kitchen.

The house is filled with light - windows surround the 'Great Room' = living and dining with kitchen bar seating separating the kitchen. Drift off to sleep in luxurious memory foam beds to the sight of stars overhead and ships passing in the night as you lift your head from bed.

If you're able to pull yourself away from the views and activites, the living room includes a 43" HD TV with Dish network programming. High-speed Wi-Fi internet access and free long-distance domestic calls.

San Juan Island is the best location in all of the Pacific Northwest for viewing the resident Orca pods. These magnificent animals provide exuberant displays as they feed on salmon, traveling back and forth in the waters surrounding San Juan Island. San Juan waters have been identified by Whale Museum biologists as a prime feeding area for the "J", "K", and "L" pods during the summer months.

Come see why the New York Times listed the San Juan Islands as #2 in their "Where to Go in 2011" guide - a list of 40 not-to-be-missed places around the world. Welcome to Paradise!

Peaceful, Beautiful, Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week here (Aug, 2017) and could not have enjoyed it more! The house is in the perfect location as far as distance to either Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor, but it is also perfect in that it is totally peaceful and secluded on a mountain top! We made good use of the well-stocked kitchen, and loved hanging out on the expansive deck, enjoying our morning coffee or our evening night caps! We couldn't remember the last time we've been able to see so many stars at night, either! Unbelievable! If your plans allow for it, definitely stay at this amazing rental - you won't regret it! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Who know you could get so close to nature only ten minutes outside Friday Harbor? This is a truly lovely spot and the house is spacious, charming and fun with no other houses around for miles. The bedrooms are large, the kitchen is a breeze to work in and the views of the water are breathtaking. Overall our four days here were perfect and we'll definitely book again. I highly recommend this listing!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Cady mountain house is awesome. The location is stunning and very private, but an easy drive into town. On clear days, there are long distance views across the Haro Strait, and on foggy days the entire property is atmospheric and dreamy. Even the long gravel drive up to the house is beautiful and great for a morning walk. Around the house, we saw deer, foxes and countless birds. The house itself had a well-equipped kitchen (with great views!) and comfy beds. It easily accommodated 4 of us, plus our dog. There was even a great supply of firewood. We would love to return to this house for another visit.

This was the Anticipation of a lifetime , the road was secluded straight uphill & WORTH EVERY PENNY ! When you get to the home its deck wraps around a VIEW of a lifetime . The Morning was a whole new VIEW and this whole vacation in a VRBO ( we are NEWBIES ) was the best experience ever . I had to do my research & it seems this manager was the best in this geographical location . Property & amenities exceeded our expectations . Thank you & have told our friends about you . Thank you

Island Oasis

  • 5 of 5

It is not easy to find a place to spend new years, especially when you are organizing a reunion of childhood friends who are peppered throughout the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Tacoma, and Portland, OR). We are all working professionals in our early 30s, and don't always get to spend much time together, this year would be different!

To reach San Juan Island is a bit of a trek from Portland, but the photos of the house, and the idea of a quiet place to reconnect was a great selling point, and all three couples agreed.

The ferry ride was amazing, and the line was a non-issue. We reached the home in the daylight and were so very pleased with what we found. Just as the ad suggested: serene views, quiet surroundings, amazing comfort, unlimited firewood and a cozy woodstove, great lighting, and so many sweet touches. Our dog felt right at home, and their was plenty of room for him to lay by the fire and watch us do puzzles, chat, and eat community meals.

This place was perfect, enough privacy for each of the couples, while still having a community feel. Everywhere you looked, there was a beautiful backdrop of scenery: mountains, pine and moss; the sound; amazing sky, and even a large moon.

The only thing we found was that there was not a coffee grinder, so either bring one, or have your beans pre-ground. Luckily, one of our Portland friends came prepared and we were able to have our caffeine fix!

The home owners were extremely responsive, very kind, and completely professional.

All in all, this was a very pleasant time, and I would recommend this place.

Enjoy your time in the woods!
