Your home away from home, located just one mile northeast of Roche Harbor Village, is waiting! The perfect spot to escape from the mainland, away from traffic noise and crowds, and ease into 'island time'.
This home is perfect for holiday celebrations, long weekend getaways, family reunions, wedding guests, honeymoons, girlfriend getaways, writer retreat, artist contemplation time, second honeymoons, birthday celebrations, annual vacations, and any occasion that requires you to slow down and celebrate life near the water.

All you need to bring is your clothes and your food - everything else is at the house: linens, cookware, utensils, towels, etc. And some things you might not have expected: two sets of golf clubs, binoculars, and a telescope!
Birdwatching will result in seeing bald eagles, oregon junkos, American Crows, Golden Finches, Northern Flickers, and a variety of seagulls.
Deer drop by often on the property, and there have been many sightings of otters, Dall's porpoises, harbor seals, and yes, sometimes the resident Orcas pay us a visit.
Our home is only 12 miles from Friday Harbor, where the ferry lands. There are plenty of opportunities on San Juan Island to visit historic landmarks, go shopping, stroll around museums, attend a live theater performance, listen to music, hike grasslands or mountains, go fishing in fresh water or salt, walk on a beach, ride a horse, participate in a zip line, attend a farmers' market, learn about the island, explore thrift stores, lose yourself in a bookstore, chat with the friendly locals, sail into the sunset, eat like royalty, commune with nature and sleep like a baby.
Our home is available for rental year round - stay for four nights, or a week, or a month or a season -
This is a family operation, and this is our only home used for vacation rental. We work hard to keep it clean, lovely and welcoming for you!
We are lifelong residents of Washington state
