'SHAVASANA' UPSCALE YURT WITH SUNSET VIEWS

Lummi Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a Unique Vacation Home on the West side of the island. The Yurt is designed for peace and relaxation yet encompases all the conforts of the present. Enjoy forest, sunset, and water views while you rejuvinate yourself in the peaceful surroundings.

We call the yurt 'Shavasana' which is the relaxation posture performed at the end of every yoga practice. Our Shavasana is a circular wooden structure with an open spacious interior, hardwood floors, domed roof, huge skylight and forrested surroundings. There is a breezeway that connects the home to the bath which includes a jetted tub and SAUNA. There is a complete kitchen with all equipment, dining area, Fireplace, TV, DVD and stereo. The Queen Size murphy bed is very comfortable and there are 2 easy chairs that convert to twin size beds. The large front deck with propane BBQ is a great spot to relax, watch the boats going by, enjoy the sunsets and view the islands. The home is fully equipped including all linens. All you need are your personal items and groceries.

Treat yourself to dinner at the award wining restaurant which is in walking distance. Inquire for more information

COMFORTABLE, BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a few magical days at Shavasana, and truly, I can't rave about it enough. It was clean and comfortable and exceeded all our expectations. We were hoping to get away for a few days to have a restful and healing retreat, and this special yurt offered us the perfect setting for the peace we were hoping for. We cooked all of our meals there and enjoyed that the kitchen was stocked with great pans and knives, and the BBQ worked beautifully. We had no problem with the television, and got to enjoy the yurt in the sun and in the rain, and even in a little bit of snow. We're researching building our own yurt now that we're in love with yurt life, but in the meantime we will visit Shavasana as much as possible.

Also, we thought the view was great! Most places on the island are not ON the beach, and we enjoyed the distant water view when it was sunny. When it was rainy, it was hard to see beyond the (beautiful) yard. There are more pictures on the Lummi Island Vacations website, and they show what the view looks like from the deck.

THE ELEGANCE OF SIMPLICITY

  • 5 of 5
The beauty of this yurt is its simplicity. I've gone there with The Love of My Life simply to unplug and unwind. Many times. We love the lack of technological "connectivity" that allows us to connect more fully and when you have a great kitchen, a good bed and a sauna nearby how could you not? Throw in a lovely lawn with wandering bunnies and deer and there is little more we could imagine for a more restful stay.

WHERE'S THE VIEW?

Where's the view?
  • 1 of 5
When I read "Enjoy forest, sunset, water and island views" I was expecting to be able to sit on those chairs and see the water and the sunset from the yurt. Beware, there is no sunset or water view from the yurt! You have to walk down the street a ways, or up the street a ways, regardless, the description is misleading.

We had a few other issues, like no gas in the bbq. And the instructions for the TV were for an older unit that is no longer there. We called the owner to ask for a tutorial and she was not able to help us either. I guess the fact that "no one else ever had a problem working it" means that we were the at fault for not being able to figure it out.

The place is nice enough, but for the price and the lax owner, I think you could do better.

Owner's Response: The yurt is on the west side of the island with trees around it. There is a very large lawn area to the water side and some trees at the edge. There are sunset and water views although not totally unobstructed. When a guest informs me the propane for the BBQ is low or empty, I always bring a spare. Unfortunately, there is no shed on site to store the extra. The owner replaced the TV with a new one and the old instructions were not removed. When you press too many buttons it has to be reprogramed. At that time I did not know this, nor how to do it. We now have good instructions and have covered the "buttons" that can get one in trouble.
