About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

LARGE, SPACIOUS WATERFRONT HOME WITH 32 FOOT DOCK

_Rocky Bay Retreat has just released its Prime Peak Season dates for 2017 occupancy, but don’t wait to make your reservation – large waterfront homes of this caliber are rarely available for vacation rental and they fill up fast!_

This spacious 4000 square foot residence is simply one of the best vacation homes on San Juan Island! With 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 400 feet of waterfront, a 32 foot dock, and a prime location only five miles from Roche Harbor, it is the perfect choice for multiple couples and families.

The property is located at the end of a private drive in a desirable neighborhood. The shoreline setting offers big sky and water views across the northeastern channel as well as over the inlet bay to the south. A gravel shoreline at low tide and rocky ledges filled with tide pools extend from the water’s edge as does a 32 foot dock to please both small craft boaters and kayaking enthusiasts.

The exquisite views are prominent in the living room on the main level. This comfortable gathering space includes a game table in the corner, plush seating in front of a wood burning fireplace, and a 60-inch television with HDTV. Cooks will find the country kitchen to be superbly equipped with high end appliances, a prep island, counter seating, and dining table. The master bedroom, featuring beautiful views, is a few steps down from the main level. This generous space offers a king bed and en-suite bathroom with soaking tub, dual vanities, bidet, and separate shower. A powder room is located on the main level as well.

The guest bedroom wing contains four other bedrooms and a small seating area. Bedrooms 2 and 3 each offer a queen size bed and they share a bathroom with tub/shower located in the hall. Bedroom 4 contains both a king size bed and a double bed, perfect for a couple with a young child. This bedroom connects to the third bathroom, also with tub/shower, that also opens to the seating area so that bedroom 5 may share it as well. This bedroom is down a few steps and is a large area that contains two twin beds, a child size hobby table, a crib, and floor cushions for the comfort of those who may want to bring a sleeping bag.

With such an abundance of amenities, it’s no surprise that Rocky Beach Retreat is destined to be one of the most popular vacation homes in the San Juan Islands!

PLEASE BE ADVISED. Parties are not permitted under any circumstances and the guest occupancy limit will be strictly enforced during your stay.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a fabulous time at this retreat. It was centrally located between Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor which made it very convenient for our day excursions. This home had all the amenities we could ask for. The kitchen was furnished with anything and everything that you would need in preparing a meal. The setting was second to non. We felt that we were able to totally get away and have total privacy. We would definately stay here again.

The place was great location and nice layout for 10 adults. The only complaint i would have is the deck/railing is rotting and one of the guest fell through the deck but the management company was all over it and did what they could and was concerned. I would stay there again.

We had a great time while staying at the incredible Rocky Bay Retreat! The house is gorgeous!! We had 7 adults and 3 children staying and we were more than comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was that the adjacent beach was private and off limits. I understand that we could have gone there and stayed below the tide line - however, there was no land access for it. I would have loved for the children to be able to poke around there. Other than that, we were more than satisfied with our stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Rocky Bay Retreat was ideal for our 5-couple bike group. We book-ended our trip with 2 different rides on San Juan Island and in between took the ferry each day to ride Shaw, Orcas & Lopez Islands. The dock provided the perfect spot from which to launch our kayaks and we saw 2 big bald eagles when we paddled around the little island that is not far from the house. One morning we were entertained by a couple of otters exploring the kayaks on the dock and another morning a deer family breakfasted just off the deck. The reason for 3 stars for the property's condition are a couple of somewhat minor issues: the coffee pot needs to be replaced (it takes FOREVER and loses a large portion of the water you put in); the deck railing is unstable and needs to be replaced; and the water conversation... We read all the comments about water usage so were prepared to be planful and frugal. We were conscious about distributing showers between morning and evening and we made them quick. Considering the fact that we cooked 5 dinners there with the associated dishes and ran a couple loads of laundry, I would say the it all worked out just fine.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay in the Islands and for allowing us to help you with your stay. We also appreciate the review you have left here and our staff is in the process of accessing and if necessary addressing the two issues you mention. With respect to the water situation, unfortunately the islands do have limited water capacity and so we request that our guests be respectful and limit their water usage. I apologize if that created any discomfort during your stay. Thank you again for choosing us to assist you with your vacation experience in the beautiful San Juan Islands! Best Regards, General Manager

Awesome location. There was a mix up on cleaning but quickly rectified. Also kitchen faucet broke. Handyman was there in a half hour and replaced the next morning. Good service by Windermere. Home is in good shape.

Reviewer Comments:

Five bedrooms, on the water. Need I say more? OK: Spectacular location, views across the water, wildlife, quiet, wonderfully rural drive to get there (we reject driving through rows of houses to get to our rentals). Others have voiced concerns about the water pressure, but we did fine simply by avoiding simultaneous showers. House equipment all worked fine. Beds are great. Tons of space for large groups if you get stuck inside because of weather….large kitchen, dining, and living area. Rental management agency was completely responsive. We’ll stay here again when we need the space!
