If you want the true experience of oceanfront living in the spectacular San Juan Islands, come visit us.
Our half-acre oceanfront property is located on the tip of North Bay, 50 feet from the ocean. The Starfish Suite is a very cozy 1,400 sq. ft. two bedroom, two bath vacation rental that accommodates from one to four guests.
The living room, kitchen, and bedrooms have large windows that take advantage of the beautiful views of the Salish Sea and historic Argyle Town. Decks run the length of the apartment and have 180 degree views of the Salish Sea and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains.
The sunken living room has a sweet little french wood~ stove, two loveseats (that convert into twin beds), a new Samsung 46 inch flat screen Smart Hub TV with a Blu-ray DVD disk player, and a stereo system for your enjoyment. We also have a wonderful selection of books.
The large sunny Master Suite has a private ocean-facing deck with a succulent garden, an en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and dressing room and a large computer-office desk. The second bedroom overlooks the main deck and Dinner Island. The Country Kitchen is ocean-facing with a pantry, desk, breakfront, and patio doors leading out onto the deck. The dining room table seats six. Often, you will see eagles and blue heron seeking tasty morsels from the sea.
Among our resident wildlife are bald eagles, great blue heron, doves and quail, deer, fox, raccoons, seals and river otter. Our organic gardens offer quiet repose. Tranquil and rejuvenating, we enjoy one of the most beautiful shorelines on the island. We are close to town, the ferry, the harbor, and Jackson's Beach...all within a few minutes from our private road.
Trip Advisor has selected the San Juan Islands as one of the top 10 islands in the United States. We would love to share our beautiful island with you!
Building our family home on the point of North Bay 25 years ago has been one of our most rewarding and exciting adventures. We love living the island life and have been very active in community services and volunteer work. David is a retired naval officer, engineer, and real-estate broker and I am a retired United Airlines International flight attendant and educator. We are originally from Lake Oswego, Oregon. This spring, we decided to live 6 months in the desert and 6 months at home. We do encourage long-term renters in the off-season months of January through March.
The Starfish Suite is perfectly located for walks into town and Jackson's Beach. There is always something to do in town, whether your pleasure is fine dining, boutique shopping, visiting our new Art Institute, or taking
The Victorian Clipper to Canada, enjoying a thrilling whale watching cruise, or just mingling with the 'locals'. Our Private Road is in a quiet neighborhood that overlooks North Bay, Griffin Bay and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. One incredible joy living so close to the sea is the intimate views of the bird and sea-life that surround us. North Bay is home to a myriad of wildlife and sea life. One is always reminded of the special beauty where we live, whether it is paddle boarding across the bay to Dinner Island, bicycling into town, listening to birdsong, or watching a mother deer carefully guiding her twin fawns away from harm's way.
We truly live in a magical paradise.
Jackson's Beach is one mile from our home. Beach activities include swimming, sailing, salmon fishing, crabbing, kayaking, wind-surfing and paddle-boarding or just walking the shoreline, looking for sea glass. We do have private parking for your car with space for a 20 foot boat, which can be launched from nearby Jackson's Beach.
Our vacation rental is minutes away from all activities checked above. For a list of activities throughout the year, visit www.sanjuanisland.org
