KING'S REST & RETREAT

Samish Island House Rental Photos and Description

A two bedroom cottage on 180 feet of low, bank water-front property. Property faces south and the view of the Olympics and Mt Rainier can be seen on a beautiful sunny day. Eagles soar the sky and the doves caress the morning with their soft serenade. Sit on the front deck and have morning coffee while enjoying the meanderings of the local residents.

Samish Island is roughly two miles long and is touted as the Martha's Vinyard of the San Juan Islands. Explore the local bergs of Bow and Edison and share in the flavors of the abundant Skagit County of the summer harvests of blueberries, raspberries, and succulent strawberries. Bike ride the island and bring binnoculars for glassing the many varieties of birds this area provides.

Suitability:
  • not suitable for children
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed

I am a Lady Rancher that competes in Mounted Shooting on Quarter horses.

Shaari purchased this house in 1992

I have lived and worked in this area for many years and find this area to be a welcome environment to rest and enjoy the view from the southernly facing windows over Padilla Bay.

The oldest house on the Island with tasteful renovations for comfort and enjoyment.

Cozy / great view - hospitality/ professionalism lacking

Longer stay, 3 weeks.
Great view with cozy remodel. Very sweet neighbor and quiet location.
Owner difficult to deal with. Did not show up for appointment to view property. 2nd appointment, called 10 minutes prior to agreed upon time for key & couldn't make it for 3 more hours. ( Explanation was dog had to go to vet, then it turned into out of town company at her house...) did not return phone calls/ shows up unannounced. ( watered all the flowers & helped her move her boat- not a word of thanks or gratitude)
A weekend probably fine, but longer term be ready for some bizzare interactions & get a copy of contract before accepting key. I had to ask numerous times and finally insist on move out. ($2000.00)
I have used VRBO numerous times and had a great, accommodating experience. This wasn't one of them, although location suited my needs.

Owner's Response: Signed contract June 12th 2013 for 23 days with vacationer. Stayed 24 days. Agreed was much less than her stated amount. Discounted to help with watering outside flowers. Known quantity mowing and garbage pick up once a week. Owner gone on vacation 7 of the 24 days. At her request, went over one extra time to change front porch light bulb. Wanted early check-in, however an emergency at the ranch precluded that. Owner there at the 3:00 pm check-in time at appointed date. Emailed owner to stay until next vacationers arrived end of August. Owner responded via email it was alright. (Have copies) She changed her mind leaving August 1st. Owner voiced frustration of having denied other vacationers. Returned her damage deposit, even though there was damage to one of the refrigerator bins. (Brand New) Had another phone call after check-out requesting items she forgot. Made sure she got them.
Friendly “Sweet” neighbor relative of mine. Explained to her he would give her crab.
Disgruntled individual hearing someone's displeasure who legally has a contract with me for the time it has been available until the next confirmed vacationers arrive on August 19th.
Take pride in providing a lovely environment for vacationers to enjoy. Please feel free to phone me for further information.

We spent a lovely weekend at this quaint cabin located right up from the water on Samish Island, with quick and easy access to the beach (less than a minute walk down to the shore!). The view is incredible and expansive, overlooking south to Padilla Bay. When the tide is low, you can walk really far out which is great for exploring. We also saw a couple bald eagles very close-up which was fun and exciting. The cabin is small and cozy yet comfortable and very clean. It's a great place for a quiet and relaxing getaway of sitting back and enjoying the fabulous and ever-changing view. We would highly recommend!

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at King's Rest and Retreat in July 2012. We had beautiful weather, including some fantastic summer lightening storms, but I imagine the space is equally tranquil during colder months. The pictures Shaari (the owner, who was great) posted can't quite do justice to the setting: Samish is lovely, quiet and friendly, with tons of bird life (including resident herons, bald eagles, and a host of other birds), and King's boasts fantastic views: Padilla bay to the southeast, Fidalgo Island to the west, and the Sound to the southwest. Even better, King's is right on the "pinch" of the island - the narrowest point - so a leisurely walk in either direction offers great views to the east and west. King's is well taken care of, well stocked (pots, pans, coffee pot, basic pantry are all there; bring your own DVDs if that's your thing), and a perfect spot to either relax or use as a home base for exploring the Skagit valley. Definitely try Breadfarm in Edison, WA and Skagit's Own Fish Market in nearby Burlington for excellent provisions; Route 11/Larabee State Park for outdoor activities; and your own sprawling west facing backyard with fire pit for hanging out and relaxing. We will most definitely be coming back.
