About Brenda Delf

We have spent many wonderful times with family/friends at this oceanfront property the home is set up for outdoor entertaining with large patios at both the front and the back of the home-the front patio has a spectacular view of the San Juan and Gulf Islands;from this area is a very short walk to the beach which offers you a relaxing stroll or a brisk walk in either direction- when the tide is out enjoy the expansive area of sandbars -and tidal pools -- great for children to run and have fun and collect shells and sandbars! There is an expansive set of floor to ceiling windows in the dining room, kitchen/living room, and master bedroom. The large stone fireplace is very inviting on a cool winter, spring or fall evening With a crackling fire, quiet music, and a good book , it is a very relaxing place to be.

Brenda Delf purchased this house in 1997

Why Brenda Delf chose Northwest & Islands

This vacation home is a great location, overlooking the Juan de Fuca Strait, with views of the San Juan Islands, as well as some of the Gulf Islands, in the Gulf of Georgia. There are many interesting sites of many species of birds flying by and landing on the trees down the bluff in front of this home-bald eagles, geese, blue herons etc.; cruise ships , both day and night, cruise by the home, giving a magical quality to the view; weekly sightings of sailboats from the nearby Marina, provide excitement as they race by in pursuit of winning the race.

The short walk to the expansive beach, is advantageous when one wishes to walk for miles on the sandbars; one can have a swim on a hot summer's day in the very clean, clear ocean water; a person can enjoy kayaking with family or friends in our 2 ocean going kayaks. There are many different walks around Point Roberts to keep one in shape, not far from the house. and also many bike trails and roads to give one a great workout or just leisurely explore the area! A great getaway location with nature and beauty all around you, in a peaceful setting.

What makes this house unique

Natural beauty with the expansive ocean, San Juan and Gulf Islands in full view from living room, dining area, and master bedroom. On clear evenings the moon with its silver path over the waters, is truly spectacular-you are at one with nature!

09/19/2016 Quiet and restful

  • 5 of 5

We found the home on Point Roberts to be wonderfully appointed - both décor and household amenities which made for a seamless vacation. We all enjoyed the beautiful view out the front windows and front patio. The beach in front was easily accessible for lots of long walks and breath taking views of Mt. Baker, Lummi island, San Juan and Turtle Mountain. The owners were easy to work with and had lots of helpful tips about things to do in the area.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our two weeks at Saltaire. It was a great place for a family vacation. The house was perfect to house our family including the 4 bedrooms. We had grandparents, parents, young adults, teenagers and a two year old. We all loved the easy access to the beach and the wonderful hot tub where we watched the fireworks on July 4th. The kitchen had everything we needed and we used the barbecue often. It was great to have a washer and dryer which were well used. The family made use of the bikes. We went forn great walks. Each morning we would wake up to see the Eagles in the tree in front of the house. On two occasions we saw whales going by right from our patio. The weather was great, shopping was close, restaurants near. Never took more than five minutes to drive anywhere in Point Roberts.we loved having the yard and garbage collection looked after. Both the private back patio and the front patio were well used. The back patio was enclosed and great for the two year old to play bubbles and ball games and be in a safe and protected space. The front patio was wonderful to sunbathe, have meals sit and enjoy the magnificent view. All in all it was a terrific two weeks. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

Perfect for Trip to Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. From the wine to the shampoo and conditioner to the flowers and beer, everything was perfect. We loved the bald eagles hanging in the tree! We tried everything--kayaking, biking, walking at low tide, relaxing in the hot tub, and dining out. It was a perfect place to relax and so close to Vancouver and the World Cup soccer. We had a wonderful time.

Family with young children

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful for a family with children. The living room is spacious and comfortable with a wonderful fireplace and an expansive ocean view. The dining room table is big and bright and cheery. The front yard and the commons in front of the property are grassy and open. The stairs to the beach are easily accessible through the front yard gate. The beach is full of treasures and open in both directions for a long walk. (We were not there during the swim season.) There are many forms of sea life and birds to view. The tree in front of the house was visited daily by a family of four eagles. The hot tub on the front deck had a great view and it is easy to get to the hot tub from the house. We much enjoyed our stay.

A lovely spot with a great view

  • 5 of 5

This PT Roberts gem has a lovely view, is wonderfully well-equipped and its owners are vey gracious. We have totally enjoyed our stays here for the last two summers. The house is suitable for a family, especially a young one, and the location on Crystal Waters beach is wonderful. We can't say enough about this rental. We've especially enjoyed the nature surrounding the house, such as birds, rabbits, deer, and sealife.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your descriptive review of this home- it is a pleasure to have such gracious renters like you- the panoramic views of the San Juan and Gulf Islands along with the eagles , blue herons and other bird life soaring outside the front windows, and perched in the tree closeby, make a person feel in tune with nature- viewing of whales and dolphins graciously passing by at various times of year, add to the excitement of seeing nature at close range ; to add to the ambience of this home is the hot tub located on the front patio with fabulous views of sunrises , sunsets at various times of the year; and once the sun sets, one can view the lights of cruise liners ships passing by; also viewing the moon glistening on the waters makes for a very romantic setting.
