About the property

The Mariners Guest House is owned and operated by Brandi Reynoldson. The owner has a caretaker that lives nearby who is available for questions and other needs. The house has recently been remodeled and has maple floors with carpet in the bedrooms and tile kitchen counters.

The Mariners Guest House, Lake Front Vacation Rental is across the street from the beach on the Strait of Georgia looking out at the San Juan and Gulf Islands.

The house is a two story 1500 square foot, A-frame, with three bedrooms and one bath. Bathroom has a deep soaking tub. The home has two view decks and a large yard. A very unique, beautiful house and location; that sits on a small lake.

There are herons, geese, ducks, bald eagles, and more. Next door are tennis and basketball courts. The property is across the street from the ocean. Within two miles there is public beach access for wonderful walks along the shore of the Strait of Georgia looking out at the San Juan and Gulf Islands. There are many golf coarses nearby. Also within two blocks there is a marina with a boat launch ramp.

It takes less than one hour to drive to Vancouver B.C. and 1.5 hours to Seattle. It is a 45 minute drive to the Anacortes ferry to the San Juan Islands. About an hour up to Mt. Baker for amazing views and hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. You can drive up to British Columbia in 20 minutes. For dining, nightlife and shopping it is less than 20 minutes to charming Bellingham and only five minutes to the Silver Reef Casino and restaurant. Sandy Point Shores is a quiet community with a laid back life style.

Cute, but with a few quirks

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay, the house was cute, clean and well stocked. I would like to point out a few things that may assist future interested renters that, if we had known ahead of time, may have affected our choice to stay. Firstly, the house is advertised as 3 bedroom, with 2 queens, 2 singles, a futon/convertible couch, floor mats (etc). The house is actually 2 bedrooms with an loft at the top of the stairs on your way to the second bedroom. There is NO futon/convertible couch (a regular couch is not a bed). We had 3 adult couples and I had to break it to our friends that they would in fact we sleeping on single trendel beds (embarrassing). Secondly, and the owner did warn me as I was booking, the stairs to the second bedroom are VERY steep. We had to descend them backwards like a ladder for safety. Finally, the public beach access is a very long walk from the house and there is no parking, so we had to drop off my mother in law and son, then someone would have to make the walk. There is a beach opening closer to the house but signs stating no trespassing as the beach is part of the private Lummi nation tidelands with threat of fines.

Perfect for our girls getaway

  • 4 of 5

My group of 6 ladies stayed here for a girls getaway and this place suited our needs perfectly! It's a sweet & quirky little house that was comfortable and bright. We had a very relaxing time. The beach is just a short walk away. We spent our mornings on the deck looking at the lake with our breakfast and coffee. The stairs are truly steep - really more of a carpeted ladder so be wary with little ones. I did notice that they had some built in gates that can be utilized if needed around the stairs. Brandi was very responsive when I emailed her about a fan. Would definitely stay here again!

Everything we had expected and more

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. We were pleased to have access to the tennis and basketball courts right next door. The home was very clean, spacious and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable and all linen and towels were in new condition. We would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous Location and great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed there after I had surgery in Seattle as a place to get away and recover. Fabulous location, beautiful surroundings. Central to everything. Very clean. Owner super easy to work with. Kitchen well stocked. Met all our needs. Went to the nearby Casino for dinner and a little gambling one night, that was fun as it was very close. Heading back to the area in March and plan to stay there again.

Return Trip just as wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for President's Weekend, but had so much fun, we had to go back in March! Kids went skiing at Baker with fresh powder and had a blast.

Owner is great to work with. The home is clean and well maintained. This home is is very cozy and perfect for 2 familes to share. You must watch the sunset from the upper balcony. Gorgeous view! Will definitely be back.
