About Alan

Seattle native who started spending summers on Camano island back in the 50s when the family rented a place right near this one. Never got it out of my system and had to finally build this place in 2014 enlisting the services of a great local builder with 30 years of experience. It was all about the view and the surroundings.

Alan purchased this house in 2014

Why Alan chose Puget Sound North

It is within a stone's throw of the property my family used to rent every summer when I was a kid. Lots of nostalgia & natural beauty. Hummingbirds, swallows, eagles, wild rabbits and deer are a few of the reasons to like this place. A great view of amazing sunsets is perhaps the greatest thing about it. We are less than 10 minutes away from Cama beach state park where they have the center for wooden boats and boat rentals. Also just beyond that is the other Camano island State park with a boat launch and camping.

What makes this house unique

Faces West, afternoon/evening sun & sunsets. This view helps us detox and relax. It's a great quiet neighborhood for walking and bicycle riding. The back yard is big enough for kids to play in safely and the back deck is a good place for adults to supervise from.

Often the only real soundtrack is birds that come to our neighbors assortment of feeders. We always have hummingbird feeders out but there are so many more types to see and hear.

Nice clean new house. In a great location!!! Loved the deck!! We enjoyed it so much and will be back

  • 5 of 5

This was just the right size for our family. We loved the natural lighting in the home. There was several days we just relaxed in the home just being lazy. It's a great location and very quiet neighborhood. We loved watching the humming birds feed. My husband and I are already talking about our next trip. We visited Cama beach also. There we picnicked and kayaked all day. It was so peaceful. Thank you again.

Cute house in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Smaller house with a nice view toward Whidbey Isl. Friendly neighbor gave us zucchini and talked about the community. Local beach is rocky. No wifi here but good cell coverage.

Good short term getaway

  • 4 of 5

Nice little house with a great deck and views. Best for couples, not for families needed extra space.

Only downside is the television reception. Weird channels (Gilligans Island?) with no local news. Not looking for a lot of TV viewing but a basic cable package would be a plus.

Nice view but little comfort

  • 3 of 5

The view, kitchen and living room are nice. The guest room to the right of the front door had an inflatable mattress. The room smelled like pee when we entered it. We later realized the sleeping bag comforter had pee on it. We ended up not using that room and our kids slept on the floor in the living room. The bathrooms were nice and everything else seemed clean. The master bedroom was adequate and the linens seemed clean in there. A bed in the guest room, nicer linens and towels would make the home much more enjoyable to stay at. We love the back yard and deck!

Perfect Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable home with a great deck for enjoying an early morning cup of coffee with two beautiful views of the water, birds, gardens etc. The setup was perfect for us; grandparents in room with queen bed and bathroom with shower, daughter and two grandchildren in room with a twin pullout and blowup mattress for kids plus another full bathroom.

Abundant windows for light and enjoying the views.

No cable or wifi because hey, we're at the beach....time for reflecting, playing games, walks, talking to each other!!

Would have been nice to have two extra chairs for the dining room table, even fold up would be ok.
