BEACHFRONT HOME ON 400 FEET NO BANK, SANDY BEACH

Camano Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

WHALES CAN BE VIEWED JUST 7 METERS IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE!!! WHALE SEASON IS MARCH - JUNE!!

Uniquely situated on 400 feet of no-bank sandy beach along Saratoga Passage on the southwest end of Camano Island, our home offers expansive views of both Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Mountains. Our historic home was built in 1957 on 3.5 mostly natural acres right on the sandy beach. Quiet and privacy is ensured by wetlands filled with driftwood on one side, and a picturesque cove community on the other side, about 3000 feet down the beach.

Pacific Northwest nature is at its best here with eagles, herons, seals, sea otters, foxes, deer and all the small forest creatures. Both Orcas and Gray whales feed on plankton and pass as close as a tweny feet from our bulk-head between March and June (peak viewing is April/May). Enjoy the views from our covered patio with fireplace -- sparkling water during the day, spectacular island sunsets, and starry nights. Outdoor activities include: hiking, bicycling, fishing, clamming, crabbing, beach-walking, kayaking, whale-watching and boating.

Our guests enjoy water views from ALL rooms since the home is built on a point and with unusual angles. The living room has a wood stove (wood provided) for cozy relaxation, and flat screen TV with DVD. There is also a stereo system with many FM channels and tape deck. The dining room looks west towards Whidbey Island and sunsets. Our country kitchen is fully equipped (all dishes, utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, etc.). Both bedrooms have water views and ample closet space. The master has a small bath with shower (queen bed). The second bedroom has a King and double bunk bed (suitable for kids, bring sleeping bags). The hall bath has a tub. Our flat-roofed, pumice brick home was designed and built with 1950's era charm -- warm wood paneling inside, built in cabinets and dining room buffet, and red brick fireplaces. There is a full laundry room with washer/dryer.

Our home is especially enjoyable to those who love nature. The previous owners enjoyed it for 70 years, after buying the land from a small logging operation in 1929. Prior to that, the area was homesteaded in the late 19th century and probably was used occasionally as a Native American summer camp. We are now opening our home of 8 years to share with like-minded nature-lovers.

Camano Island is easily reached by driving over a bridge which means no ferry lines! Our home is reached in about 30 minutes from the I-5 Stanwood exit.

Relaxing beach cottage

  • 4 of 5
I wish I could figure out how to include photos in my review. We had a great 6 day stay at the beach house. It is exactly as advertised. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because it is pretty much a 50's beach house, but you will love the place if you want to be right on Puget Sound. We spent tons of time in my twin sea kayak which was super easy to store on the bulkhead side and launch from the beach. We did lots of successful crabbing (yes, from the kayak!) and had some beautiful paddles going both directions from the house. I especially recommend heading south around the point of the island and up the east side. We saw many eagles, seals, otters and sea birds. The outdoor fireplace with a great supply of wood was super. One of the neighbors up the road sold her raspberries in front of her house. Yum!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Joel, for sharing your fun experience at our family beach house. Sounds like the crabbing was great and you saw lots of wildlife. The photos you sent are wonderful and thanks for allowing us to add them to our webpage. Come back again anytime! We are glad to share our special place in nature away from the city.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at your beach house; thank you for making it available on VRBO. We played on the beach a ton, watched a storm roll in one day, fished, crabbed and truly enjoyed the beautiful location and the well-equipped beach house. It was really special seeing the seals staring at us, the pink salmon jumping out of the water and eagles flying over head. The good life for sure! Our entire family can't wait to get back to Pebble Beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Christian and family, for your enthusiastic comments. So glad you enjoyed all the nature on our beach and your kids had fun. You are welcome to come back anytime -- maybe the sea otters will be out or the whales (March - June).

A Gem on Pebble Beach!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed during the first weekend of August and had a wonderful time. The orientation of the home to the water/bulkhead is perfect; views from the living room and kitchen are expansive! Even in inclement weather you'd be able to enjoy the peace and beauty all around you. The covered porch with fireplace is perfect and we spent many hours there (awesome that the firewood is provided, too!). We saw eagles, sea otters, and countless other birds, strolled on the beach, relaxed, BBQ'd - such a great place to "recharge". We also did the Canopy Tours Northwest zip line adventure - so fun! The home is older, as stated, but perfectly comfortable. One thing I'll point out is that we brought our hybrid bicycles but didn't use them - there aren't any trails accessible from the home and the road (in my opinion) would be a bit dangerous to ride on, being 2 lanes with lots of curves, so leave your 2-wheelers at home (but a kayak, canoe, or rowboat would be great!). I'd like to come back in the winter and sit on the couch with a toasty fire going! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Liz, so glad the two of you enjoyed our beach home and all the nature that surrounds the place. Great, too, that you enjoyed the fires on the patio and the swallows nesting there. Please come back and relax again. You are right...it's great to snuggle in with a fire in the wood stove in the winter, go out for a beach walk at low tide, then return for some hot chocolate. Thanks for your nice comments.

You want serenity? Here it is!

  • 5 of 5
Early morning walks before the mist burns off...silence so profound that you can feel it.

Just enough boat traffic to keep it interesting...watching the tides turn the channel from bathtub calm to what appear to be class four whitewater rapids...

The surprise of Mount Rainier floating in the far distance, ghosting in and out of the clouds...the thrill at the sight of a pair of Bald Eagles flying, settling on a high branch, and discussing their day in raucous tones.

The scattering of the moon's reflection on the water...

Above all, space and opportunity to wander, to explore, to grab a nap, to just be......

Great 4th On The Beach!

  • 4 of 5
We spent 4 days at this house over the 4th of July. It sits right on the beach with a small bulkhead. It is very private and has a huge amount of waterfront. Most beach houses on the islands are in communities that sit very close together, so this was a real unique feature. The owner and caretaker were great to work with. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Orlin, so glad you and your family enjoyed our family beach house on Camano. We feel fortunate to have this private place right on the beach. We are glad you enjoyed the privacy from other folks' conversations and freedom from man-made noise. Hope to have you back again soon.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
We (two couples) had a lovely time at the house. SO relaxing and quiet. We sat by the fire on the patio at night and played games, and had great beach walks at low tides during the day. Watched a pair of eagles fishing. The spotless house/kitchen was very well equipped and beds very comfortable. It's not modern, the house is vintage 50's - 60's, however is perfectly placed on the lot to capture views from every angle and yet be private. Furnishings are quite comfortable. We hope to be back soon.
