My husband and I grew up on the Oregon Coast and developed strong ties to small communities and the Pacific Ocean. During college we spent our summers working on San Juan Island and soon realized this was a place of unique beauty that kept calling us back every year. Fortunately our lively-hoods took us in the direction of the arts, nature & wildlife, a perfect combination that allowed us to make this special island our home.
Danielle purchased this house in 2002
Our property is a true paradise with privacy and spaciousness. At any given time a variety of wildlife can be spotted either walking by or flying above. Glimpses of Westcott Bay are just in the distance with fresh seafood to suit a King. The quaint & historic seaside village of Roche Harbor Resort backs our property offering a multitude of activities, restaurants and shopping.
Whether you just need a true escape or plan special family get togethers, Quarry Point Retreat is a perfect destination.
We recently spent a week in mid-September with our son, daughter-in-law and their 3 year old and couldn't have imagined a nicer place to be for a lazy vacation. The private vacation home is situated with water views on three sides with a very sizable yard for playing games with our grandson or just watching the ever-present deer. The home has a open layout that was great for those cooking and those just keeping the cooks company, but quite quiet for late sleepers. The owners have thought of just everything that visitors might need from a closet full of board games to a rice steamer (read over what is listed in the vacation home...all is really there). And the owners greeted us just after arrival with fresh coffee beans and fruit. We spent lots of time on the deck that has lounging furniture, table and chairs and a gas grill. This rental is in Roche Harbor which has good dining and some shopping, but only 15 minutes from Friday Harbor where the ferry lands. We were able to kayak easily from Roche Harbor and saw many seals in the fairly calm waters. Although the island isn't too hilly for biking, the roads are narrow. It's better to take the ferry with bikes to Orcas Island for a day of cycling. But, there are more things to do on San Juan Island than you can pack in in one week anyway. We enjoyed the Alpaca Farm and watching the Orca Whales off Lime Kiln Park.
We had a lovely stay with our family. Very child friendly and a wonderful, extremely peaceful setting for a getaway. Management very helpful.
We were thrilled with both the home and location....very quick walk right into Roche Harbor. Owners checked in on us and we're just a delight. Home is plush with a fully stocked kitchen and barbecue. We would definitely come again. *****
We absolutely loved staying at this home. The large deck in the back is wonderful along with the pretty lawn and lovely views of the water. Everything is well maintained and the house is very clean. Roche Harbor is beautiful and there is lots to do. We rented mopeds one day and had a great time. You can't go wrong with this house and the owner Danielle is very helpful.
I want to Thank Danielle for providing such a lovely home. We were on the Island for our son's wedding at Roach Harbor. We required two things. The home needed to be handicap accessible and have extra space for the rehearsal dinner. This home met those requirements. The extra benefit was that the home was "just around the bend" from the resort.
The homes large deck and open floor plan allowed the dinner to flow easily, everyone loved the HUGE yard, beautiful view of the water and the over sized deck. The owners are on sight which is very nice. My last minute calls were returned quickly. the home is very clean and well appointed. Bedding and towels are very nice. You wont be disappointed.
The island of San Juan is beautiful, lush, green and filled with wildlife. The weather in late August and early September make it a perfect place to relax and just enjoy the surroundings. Whale watching and kayaking in the Pugent sound were both excellent. The house has everything you need to just move right in and enjoy. The location is beautiful and the house was very comfortable for 4 adults. Easy for seniors also. The Roche Harbor facilities close by were excellent and the 7 mile drive to Friday Harbor was well worth it also. Spent one day in Sydney, BC. Easy commute via ferry system.
Can't wait to return to this part of the country.
We spent time the last week of August in this home and were so happy here. The house was clean, very comfortable and well appointed. We have a 2 and 7 year old and they both loved the house and running around in the back yard. Sitting on the deck for meals was lovely to see the water and we saw many deer visiting. We will definitely come back. The house is in such a nice location - walking to Roche Harbor for ice cream, taking the 3 mile loop for excercise, walking to the sculpture garden. Couldn't have asked for a better house.
