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

This is a special Northwest home. 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 and ocean views encompassing Canada's Vancouver Island and Haro Strait. Step out to the wrap around decks and enjoy the nature abound, deer, fox, eagle and a myriad of birds. This custom built home is a warm and friendly environment and allows you to participate in all that nature has to offer. 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 activities, the living room includes a 43" HD TV with Dish network programming. This home has 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! Exclusive 10 acres atop Cady Mnt. View of Haro Strait & Vancouver Island, BC.

Wonderful house with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. We enjoyed the fabulous view of the ocean and ships and all the way to Canada. The house is spacious and comfortable and has beautiful windows.

Lovely weekend away

  • 5 of 5

The views and location are perfect for an escape from the City. Amenities are nice - shower upstairs worked great, and the my kids loved the tub downstairs. Kitchen has a hodge podge of dishware and cooking supplies for basic cooking. Nothing fancy, but it did the job. The living room space was very comfortable and the dining room table was a nice large size. The only negative things I would add are one of the downstairs bedrooms doesn't stay as well heated as the others (it snowed while we were there, since it was February), but we just didn't use that room and shifted our kids around. It wouldn't have been an issue most of the year.

Very quiet and relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a home with a beautiful forested territorial view and a bit of a water view as well. It feels remote, but it's actually not a long drive to the charming town of Friday Harbor with its small quaint shops and movie theater. We enjoyed our long weekend here!

The house is in a perfect location to explore the entire island! We loved the layout of the house and spending time around the fire too.

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!
