About John and Lorraine Barnes

Lorraine (Oma) and John (Grandpa) both grew up in rural areas of Washington State. They've transformed this property into their dream retirement home. Lucky for you they have decided it's not yet their time. They currently live in Portland, OR. They enjoy travelling to all corners of the U.S., but have always considered the most beautiful area to be the Puget Sound.

John and Lorraine Barnes purchased this house in 2014

Why John and Lorraine Barnes chose Northwest & Islands

Our home is a dream come true with views that can't fully be described. One has to experience the awesome ocean views, the Olympic Mountains, the bald eagles and the quiet serenity to understand what we mean. This location provides us with access to the Puget Sound and many destination and tourist spots. These include La Conner, Anacortes, San Juan Islands and Friday Harbor, Deception pass (have you been across this bridge!), Oak Harbor and Coupeville. We love to window shop, enjoy great meals, libations, taking in stunning views and exploring hidden treasures. From our home you can do all this and then come back to relax on the deck! Just in time for a beautiful sunset.

What makes this house unique

This home offers a deck the full length of the home right on the cliff. The view is westward facing ensuring unforgettable sunsets. You can have a drink and dinner on the deck or venture down to the beach using the private staircase. If one feels the need for company or night life La Conner is only 5 minutes away with restaurants and pubs galore.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is as described. Very enjoyable. Beach chairs were a nice addition. Kayaked in inflatable to deadman islands. Lots of heron and one oystercatcher.

Tip: the trees were dropping sap. You might want to cover your car!

beautiful setting and very nice place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

we loved the views, the cleaniness, nicely remodeled home, and proximity to la conner....location was quiet and great for our day trips to vancouver, orcas island, whidbey island, chuckanut drive and bellingham, etc....gas-log fireplace helped lift the morning chill and the washer-dryer was a big plus....we have three modest suggestions for improvement: a) the bottom of the steps at the beach need repair and stabilizing; b) the first floor bedroom badly needs a box spring and/or new mattress; and, c) the ads should probably make it clear that while it has 2 bathrooms, both are on the lower floor (making it problematic and difficult for mobility-impaired seniors to use the upstairs bedroom(s))....recommend it highly with the caveats noted above

Frugal but very comfortable, and WOW what a VIEW

  • 4 of 5

My husband, sister and her husband, and I stayed at the property 05/20 till 05/27/17. Immediately taken with the SPECTACULAR view directly facing us. As the posted pics show, the home itself is very well appointed: granite in kitchen, lovely tile in the primary bath, stacked-stone fireplace, laminate (?) wood flooring, etc. However, most of furniture is mis-matched and, to be blunt, except for one chair w/ ottoman & dining table, were almost thrift-store looking. HOWEVER, everything very comfortable! Sufficient seating for all of us & after hiking and walking most days, seating comfort very much appreciated. Were really concerned when we first saw both beds (king and queen sized), because if I don't get a good night's sleep, NOBODY's going to enjoy themselves. To our mutually great surprise, both beds shockingly comfortable. All 4 of us slept VERY well. If you note listing details of property, you'll notice it says 2 bathrooms on first floor. That means no bthrm available for the master or the loft area, located upstairs, for any midnight "needs". In fact, both bthrms are located immediately adjacent to front entry. Therefore, occupants of the downstairs bdrm (queen bed) must traverse the kitchen, dining nook, and living room to access either bathroom. You should also know the 2nd bthrm is actually a stall shower & toilet, accessed through a pocket door, attached to the laundry/utility room (houses washer/dryer, water heater & breaker box). It is certainly a practical use of space but is a bit austere (the bthrm sink is actually the laundry sink within the laundry room). Another point is the kitchen is very cramped. You'll be playing dodge 'em with whoever else occupies the kitchen. Can't easily open the pantry if someone standing at the sink. Can't open fridge if someone at the stove. Can't work at stove if someone at sink. But every cooking gadget we needed was there. Note the lower-level bdrm is accessed through the kitchen. If you need to get to dwnstrs bdrm, whoever is in the kitchen needs to step aside first. A windstorm toppled a tree nearby , taking out power for 12+ hrs, but water heater & range are gas (YAY!) & we found emergency lanterns & batteries stocked. Whidbey Naval Air station introduced occasional aircraft noise even as late as midnight one night, but otherwise neighborhood SUPER QUIET. Overall, the place is charming, comfortable & very good value for the money. A great vacation property for a couple! We all would recommend

Fabulous beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This newly remodeled home sits right on the beach with a stair running down to the shore. It was sparkling clean and very cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped. The view was lovely and it was so relaxing to watch the tide throughout the day. We would definitely return to this delightful house!
