OCEAN FRONT HOME WITH VIEWS OF ORCAS, EAGLES, SUNSETS

Roche Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

ORCAS EAGLES WILDLIFE.. This is the best location in all of the Pacific Northwest for viewing all that nature has to offer. The westside of San Juan Island has been identified by whale museum bioligists as a feeding area for our three resident pod 'J, K & L' and transient Orca pods. What makes our three resident pods J's, K's & L's unique is they are strictlty Salmon fish eaters. You can watch as they hunt their salmon just a few yards off shore from the confort of your living room or deck. A second deck area with seating is a prime perch for you to witness nature's daily cycle including our resident Eagle who hunts from a snag tree right beside you!

This home is positioned in a private location on the Westside of San Juan Island. Your views from your home are of Haro Strait across to Vancouver Island, BC. Enjoy world class sunsets topped off by the lights of Victoria, BC. Buchart Gardens has summertime, sunset fireworks viewable from your deck.

This home sits in a very private spot. Has gas fireplace and electric floor heating. Comfortable living, dining and bedroom settings.

3 bedrooms with 2 king and 2 twin beds. Upstairs balcony off bedroom #2.

Comfortable 6 chair dining with a view.

Best of all are the vistas from inside to outdoor features with nature abound.

Come enjoy the best area in the Pacific Northwest.

Fantastic Location

Just wanted to take a minute to say how much we enjoyed our stay at this property. The pictures on this site do not come close to showing the actual beauty of the views of this location. We all said that we could have easily just stayed out on the decks the whole time we were on the island, watching eagles, seals, otters, deer, foxes, and whales. Even caught a few rockfish from the shore below the house. Besides the spectacular views, my next favorite part of staying here was the friendliness of the locals all over the island. We could not have felt more welcome. Many thanks to Karen for helping us with all the arrangements for our stay here. The house is so comfortable, you feel like you are staying with friends somewhere. Thanks again, Karen!

Three of us stayed at this lovely home for three nights and loved it. The views out of the main floor living room, dining room were spectacular. During our stay we saw the resident bald eagle(s), whales, deer, and harbor seals. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet- great for daily walks. The house was very clean and comfortable and was outfitted with everything you could possibly need. We will definitely be back next year.

We spent the better part of a week here, enjoying the incredible view and privacy in this quaint and cozy waterfront home. My daughter and I came here with her photography mentor, looking for Orca and other sea life to photograph. We had the best time on the water, photographing sea lions and seals...and humorously enough, no Orca, as they had decided to head south to Seattle (where we live) for the entire time we were in the San Juan's. We also saw eagles flying by, many seabirds and shore birds, and many deer, one of them actually prancing about in the side yard!

It was a great trip, and the house is well depicted by the description and photos. We found the home very warm and inviting, the house immaculate and the grounds well maintained, the beds fabulous for sleeping in (great nights sleep!), and all amenities perfect for us while there. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The owners were very gracious and easy to work with, and very helpful when I had questions about anything.

We found a couple of places to put our boat into the water close by, and especially found Roche Harbor inviting...and we, wanting to return and visit again! We made all our own food, but I will definitely explore the nearby restaurants in Friday and Roche Harbor the next time we come. Everything on the island is easily accessible by car or boat, with all conveniences at hand.

I highly recommend this vacation home and we will most definitely be back! I want to bring my husband for a week of relaxation sometime soon...nice place for a cozy romantic getaway. I will also be back alone for a writer's retreat...what an amazing place to meditate and write! Great place to be, incredibly beautiful island, and laid-back atmosphere make for the perfect place to relax, heal, rest, and enjoy. Thank you so much for a great week...couldn't have been better!
