Camano Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This Legendary Dream home at the entrance to the 'Camano Island State Park' sits on its own bluff and is known for some of the most remarkable, unobstructed ocean views and privacy on the entire Island. A rare, one story, open craftsman style home, has huge picture windows from every room to give you breathtaking views of Puget Sound, the boats to and from Canada and the Island's sea and wildlife. This sacred home was custom built for his wife by Al Emerson, the first forest ranger on Camano Island. Enjoy the peaceful walk to the nearby famous 'Al Emerson Nature Trail', which was dedicated in his honor. This is the ONLY home available that is at the entrance to the state park, yet is secluded and quiet.

Huge 3 car RV/Boat garage, vast circular drive and private Gym, completes this perfect retreat. The serene, private deck that wraps around most of the house overlooking the Sound, often catches many of our majestic rainbows!

Heaven on Earth has arrived!

Description Cont. : Due to the positioning of the property, you feel like you are ocean front, floating in the clouds with privacy as one of the main features, yet steps away from the magnificent Camano Island State Park. The Island even has its own 'airplane landing strip' for those who come by private plane.

This unpretentious home is furnished to make you feel like royalty, with a secluded water view master suite which has a floor to ceiling hand carved 4 poster canopy bed, and a world famous Nikken magnetic mattress(which is endorsed by the World Federation of Chiropractics and may just give you the deepest, most healing sleep of your life). Also in the master suite is a freestanding fireplace and sliding glass doors that open to the deck. At the opposite end of the home is the second custom furnished bedroom with its own full bath and views of the trees and ocean from the sleigh bed.

There is a wood burning stove next to the kitchen in the living/dining area- all with ocean views-and the spacious kitchen is big enough for dancing!

For you rugged, outdoor types, there is an attached huge 3 car RV/boat garage with its own full bath and gymnasium. Hiking, fishing, crabbing, boating and picnic areas are conveniently located within walking distance. Camano's own golf course is just a short drive within minutes of the home, next to the town center with various shops and a grocery store.

If you are fortunate enough to be here over the fourth of July or New Years Eve, the firework shows over the water and Whidbey Island will take your breath away!

As the deer, bunnies, bald eagles and other wildlife stop by to visit, be sure to greet them because this is also a designated registered wildlife habitat owned by the founder of one of the first all-volunteer, foster-home pet rescues of its kind in the country.

Ask about making a donation to the charity, Recycled Pets Rescue, and receiving a signed copy of her inspirational award winning book, My Recycled Pets: Diary of a Dog Addict.

When this vacation ends, perhaps with one of our many rainbows smiling at you in your rear-view mirror, you will drive away feeling blessed and maybe even holding back a tear or two.

PLEASE ALSO CONTACT BY PHONE AS WE OFTEN cannot check emails and please leave a message if you receive the voicemail. No Smoking in the home or on the grounds please as this is a' Registered Wildlife Habitat'.

Why Owner chose Camano Island

Being on a quiet, unpopulated street at the entrance to the Camano Island State Park gives you the best of all worlds The private views of Puget Sound from each room truly makes you feel as though you are on your own planet!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Randi's home was exactly what we were seeking - two private bedrooms at opposite ends of a large house, a large central gathering area in the middle, and a killer view of Saratoga Passage. The rooms were spacious, the kitchen was well-equipped for 2-4 guests, and if it had been whale migration season all our free time would have been spent on the huge deck! Although other homes were nearby, we neither saw or heard anyone else - a very private oasis indeed. Randi was very helpful and communication was easy. This was a very restful retreat, and thanks so much for sharing with us, Randi. Hope to be back one of these days very soon!

clean, well-maintained sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We had the best relaxing vacation recently at Randi's property on Camano. What a great location!

My wife and I spent a couple days exploring the beautiful state parks to which we were able to just walk. We had forgotten to bring our Discovery Pass (left it in our smaller car) and by walking there, we saved ourselves the day pass fee...a mere $10. But hey, every bit helps, right?

This very lovely house is quiet and private with a great deck where we were able to watch bunnies play, eagles soar, and fireworks across the water on Whidbey Island without the loud booms that freak out our dog. Our days there were spent exploring the island, the state parks, local farmers markets, and some of the interesting stuff up by Chuckanut. We polished off a flat of amazingly tiny, tender strawberries (from Schuh Farms) in 3 days between the two of us. Our evenings were spent cooking, catching up on reading, playing music, and enjoying the views in the evening light. But most importantly, this was a great place for us to relax and feel restored before heading home. Being surrounded by all the natural beauty helped me remember how incredible the Northwest really is. It was hard to leave.

Thanks, Randi, for making your home available for folks like us!

PS. It was cool to be able to see that tiny island that looks like a surfaced submarine from a different perspective. I'm pretty sure thats the one I've always been looking at from Rosario State Park.

Owner's Response: Well out of a seemingly endless stream of inquiries for the 4th of July weekend from people who were not the ideal match for me, I was even more thrilled to have found you! You and your 4 legged son were a dream come true, perfect fit for me and my sacred space! By the way, yes....that amazing little island I believe is called "Baby Island"...but don't quote me on it! Hope to have you all back, Randi

Randi's Camano Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Randi's place on Camano Island. When you open the front door and walk in, you are immediately faced with a breath-taking, panoramic view. The house is very comfortable, and there is a beautiful view from every window. We enjoyed reading the inspirational quotes Randi has placed around the house, and the decorations, especially the leprechaun, delighted us.

The description regarding the layout,location and amenities is accurate. The property is clean and well-maintained. Randi, the owner, is very courteous and supplied us with great customer service and a list of things to do around the area and places to dine.

This is a perfect place to unwind. The furniture is fabulous and very comfortable. The kitchen is well supplied, and it is easy to make your own meals. The first time we went out onto the wrap-around deck to use the BBQ, we were thrilled to observe a pair of eagles near the house. The tranquil sound of birds, the view of wild-life and the gorgeous setting will put anyone into a relaxed mood.

Randi is very professional, accommodating, and punctual at replying to any inquiry you may have. It was a pleasure getting to know Randi, and we all hope to be able to stay at her home again.

We highly recommend Randi's beautiful home.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure having such wonderful people staying at my home. From our first conversation I could tell how respectful and appreciative you were and I was hoping your vacation would fulfill all your expectations. I look forward to someday meeting you at our paradise!

Great place -- quiet, private, very clean, and fantastic water views

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay and had no complaints. VERY clean, spacious, QUIET, private, and with great water views. The home is wheelchair accessible (my brother, who uses a power chair, had no problems maneuvering around the house and onto the deck). The kitchen is nicely furnished for cooking most meals. The owner was great to work with and easy to communicate with -- very enthusiastic about us staying at her home. The house is only a short walk to the trails of the state park, and not much further to the beach. The pictures of the property were very accurate and not misleading at all.

Best Vacation Ever !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful property for 10 days in July. We would have stayed longer if it wasn't already rented!! We had our dog with us and had the perfect vacation here. The owner, Randi, is delightful and so easy to work with. The house is gorgeous and has a spectacular view. It is so quiet and peaceful, you will feel like you are the only people around.

There are tons of things to do close by. Camano State Park is unbelievably beautiful and offers many beautiful hikes and water recreation. We rented a boat close by the house and had a great day on the water. Fresh crab!!!!!! It's also easy to get to Whidbey Island and Seattle from here.

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation, look no further. You will love this property. It's very clean and well maintained. Super if you are traveling with a four-legged friend. You will enjoy endless hours sitting on the huge deck and watching the boats pass by. Great for bird watching also.

We can't wait to go back!
