PERCHED ON WESTSIDE WATERFRONT WITH SUNSETS, WHALES, & GORGEOUS VIEW!

Roche Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Seas the Day-You’ll experience the San Juan Islands vacation of your dreams in this absolutely beautiful waterfront rental home built right at the edge of the sea. This premium west-side San Juan Island location features fantastic views over the De Haro Straits. You’ll spend many hours mesmerized by the sound of the waves, panoramic vistas, glorious sunsets, and the seasonal joy of watching Orca whales pass right by your windows. Almost every room offers a spectacular view of deep blue water, snow-capped mountains, and Vancouver Island where the lights of Victoria BC twinkle at dusk.

There's a special niche for all in this gorgeous home. You can worship the sun and dine on an expansive deck twenty feet from the water. On the main level, comfy sofas and chairs will beckon you to converse in the cozy living room by the wood burning fireplace. Around the corner, you'll find a small wet bar and den with overstuffed leather seating and Plasma TV with satellite and DVD. There's a well equipped kitchen so you can prepare an excellent meal - a portion of which might be prepared on the new BBQ on the adjacent deck.

The three bedrooms are all on the main floor and feature soft linens and very comfortable beds. The master has a walk in closet, en-suite bath with jetted tub, and a gorgeous view (of course) as well as a private sunroom. A second bath is shared by a guest bedroom with a queen bed and the third bedroom that offers two twin beds and a trundle bed. A powder room and laundry room are also on the main level. Overflow guests can be accommodated on a sleeper sofa and window seat bed on the upper level, where there is also a TV, fooseball table, and bath with steam shower & dry sauna. There is access to a private viewing deck on this level as well.

Within a five minute stroll, you'll find a secluded pocket cove designated for local neighborhood use only - it's a beautiful and private place to picnic. Seas the Day is also near San Juan County state park (a great place to launch kayaks), as well as Lime Kiln Park and conservation lands that are woven with hiking trails. When you come home after a good day of exploring all the Island has to offer, there’s also a hot tub waiting where you can soak on star-lit nights and watch the cruise ships go by (and likely you will be the envy of everyone on board…)

The home is dog friendly and great for families, but, due to the high bank & deep water exposure, children and pets require very vigilant supervision.

The home is cared for by a local rental manager to be sure that your stay goes smoothly. They will help you with your reservation also!

Reviewer Comments:
My family stayed here for four nights at the end of June. There was 11 of us staying here including two young kids and two small dogs. Overall we had a fantastic stay. The view was spectacular! We saw Orca whales pass by the house on average twice a day as well as other wildlife including a bald eagle, a few seals, jellyfish and humming birds. We saw the sun set over Vancouver Island and at night we saw a zillion stars in the sky, including the Big Dipper constellation.

The house itself was well furnished if not a bit over furnished. My family utilized almost every corner of the house. We quite enjoyed listening to music on the old-school turntable. The only critique I have is that I think the house could benefit from a deep clean. We found a lot of expired or empty kitchen condiments left in the cupboards by past guests. And, we found a lot of moths living in the loft including inside the never used hand-towels hung in the bathroom.

Despite those minor flaws I would enthusiastically recommend this rental to any friends and would absolutely stay there again myself.

Manager responded on 7/10/2014:
Future guests might note that this booking was accepted with the expectation of 9 guests in residence; we did not authorize 11 guests during this stay. Children and infants are counted in the maximum number of guests accepted.

Reviewer Comments:
WOW what an amazing 5 days we had. The house was to die for! Beautiful, large, expansive views from every room of the water, and just perfect! Two of our days we watched the whales swim by right in front of the house. The house could not be closer to the water. 180 degree view all up and down the coast. Weather was perfect - sunny and comfortable durning the day and cool at night. Can't wait to go back.

Reviewer Comments:
The house is lovely and sits right on the edge, and I mean edge, of a cliff. The windows are huge and every room on the west side has super views of the straits. Ships, seals, jellyfish, herons, eagles and kayakers are regular sights.

The furnishings are very nice and comfortable...like you are staying at a friends home...not sterile and sparse. There are loads of personal touches including vinyl records and a record player!

The only drawback was the water issue so we had to drink bottled water the whole 10 days we were there but they supplied most of the water. The other was the house has a funky odor, like it has mold or dampness. That explains the boxes and boxes of baking soda in every available hidden area.

Other than that, I would say it was very relaxing and beautiful. This house is not for kids at all because of the cliff outside. Same for dogs unless you have them constantly on a leash..which we do since ours is deaf.

We did see whales. The whole J and K pods traveling together and that was worth the whole trip in itself. We would definitely go back to this house if it is still available when we return.


Manager responded on 10/3/2013:
Just prior to your arrival, a state inspection reported that the community water supply did not meet some of the required drinking water standards. It was highly unlikely this posed a serious health risk but as the neighborhood was advised not to drink water direct from the tap, we provided bottle water. We greatly appreciate your understanding of this highly unusual situation. The district is now in full compliance so that future guests will not be similarily inconvenienced. We are sorry for the inconvenience during your stay, but are happy that you enjoyed your time in the home nevertheless. Hope to see you again soon!

What a gorgeous home! We loved Seas The Day! The deck was our favorite place to spend time. It was hard to leave the gorgeous view! The house was a wonderful place for a group vacation.

The only problem we had was that the kitchen lights were on a track lighting system and they went out. When we called about it we were told that they couldn't be fixed so we were without lights in the kitchen for about 4 of our 7 day stay. Fortunately the sun set late so we made it work!

Great furnishings, beautiful location, fully stocked for all your needs. A wonderful getaway for any family or group!
