WATERFRONT TRANQUILITY - THE BEACH HOUSE @ POINT ROBERTS

Point Roberts House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Imagine waking to orca whales breeching off your front door step, bald eagles swooping by your windows, stepping off your lawn onto your own beach, hearing and seeing the waves from your bedroom, or walking the shoreline as winter storm waves crash at your feet.... The Beach House @ Point Roberts gives you all of that, and more.

If relaxing day after day is only “part” of what you are looking for, you can combine this quiet relaxing environment with easy access to the world class venues of Vancouver and close proximity to the BC Ferries to Victoria and the Gulf Islands. The local ski hills of Vancouver are just an hour away, and the world class runs of Whistler are two. However, if relaxing day after day in the luxury of your own waterfront getaway is primarily what you are looking for, this is also the place.

The Beach House @ Point Roberts is a modern architectural take on a traditional Victorian Sea Captain’s home set on the Straits of Georgia. With a southern exposure, the Beach House is always flooded with light. Outside decks provide great 360 degree exposures, east to Mount Baker, south to the US San Juan Islands, west to the Canadian Gulf Islands and north to the Vancouver North Shore Mountains. This designer home is an open concept home flooded with light. It is centered around a great room with Roche Bobois leather furniture, stainless steel appliances, granite kitchen counter, expandable glass dining table, handcrafted stone murals inside and out, and has 3 bedrooms all with ensuites. The hot tub is on the SW upper deck, a great place for evening cocktails while enjoying the vast sunset and ocean views.

We are located on the SW corner of the Point, the second house from Lighthouse Park. The marina, airpark, local art galleries and restaurants are all an easy walk and the local award winning golf course is just a few minutes drive. During the summer season we frequently have orca whales in front of our house and year round we enjoy the extensive bird life including bald eagles, great blue herons, loons, oyster catchers, mallard, wood and other ducks, coots... Our extensive flower gardens also attract innumerable song birds and hummingbirds.

Outside there is extensive landscaping with close cut Idaho quartzite driveway and walkways, an orca whale mural in the driveway, exposed aggregate terraces, beautiful flower garden, baskets and pots as well as a desert xeric garden with many exotic agave, yuccas and echeverias rarely seen in this zone. We also have an organic herbal garden that you are welcome to help yourself to while you stay. Since we are on two lots, there is also a large open grass area perfect for kids to run around on, play volleyball, bocci, or or sit quietly watching the ocean.

Point Roberts WA is a very unique Pacific Northwest area encompassing a hybrid of Canadian and American influences. We are on a 5 square mile peninsula of land that juts out from mainland Canada below the 49th parallel, surrounded by ocean on three sides and the US / Canada border to the north. Our combination of ocean and land masses makes the Point a “Blue Hole”, one of the sunniest locations in the NW.

If you are traveling from Canada, the US “Mainland”, or from further a field, just remember to bring your passport. We are an easy forty minute drive from Vancouver or if you are coming by plane, we are 25 minutes from Vancouver International, 45 minutes from Bellingham WA airport or a 2 1/2 hour drive from Seattle, WA. Alternatively, you can fly into the local private airpark, (1RL), a short ten minute walk away.

Whether you are looking for a family vacation home, a place to entertain friends, a romantic retreat, a wedding location or simply a place to get away from it all, the Beach House @ Point Roberts can meet your needs.

We have lived in Point Roberts since 2001 and absolutely love this little piece of heaven. We are avid sailors, skiers and pilot our own plane -- Point Roberts gives us easy access to all of the activities that we love and we can keep our boat and plane within walking distance.

Owner purchased this house in 2001

We enjoy hosting friends, family and guests. While a perfect retreat for just us, we also love to see the enjoyment that the Beach House brings to others as our guests build lasting memories.

Just steps to the beach, Lighthouse park nearby, orca whales in front, bald eagles overhead, front seat to sailboat races, great beach combing, hot tub with ocean and sunset views, incredible photo opportunities year round....simply a nice tranquil place to be.

A HALF HOUR DRIVE BUT WORLDS AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We live in Vancouver and were a little skeptical as to whether this getaway was away enough for us.

Originally we were looking at renting somewhere at Long Beach and then came across this absolute gem of a property! At half the price and a fraction of the travel time we were treated to this truly beautiful home, full of warmth, light and with stunning views. We love being right on the ocean and this beautiful spot did not disappoint. It was a gorgeous sunny weekend during our stay but I was rather hoping to watch a storm come through as I can't imagine a better place to watch from!

The architecture of this home is unique and very open concept - all about natural light.

The master suite is beautifully appointed. It also has a private balcony from which to enjoy morning coffee and watch the local Regatta (for real!).

The kitchen has everything you could need and is very well stocked - we got the basics at the local market and needed nothing else. It was wonderful to be able to just cook for ourselves throughout our stay.

Unlike many places we had rented, this home is managed by a wonderful property manager who really did anything she could to make our stay great. Attentive but not intrusive; we felt well cared for.

There were many little details that did not go unnoticed and made the experience luxurious: fresh clean high quality linens, towels and bathrobes in bright white (the robes were perfect for pre and post hot tub), fresh soaps at every sink, a welcome basket with a bottle of wine, fresh flowers.... thank you for all these little touches!

We definitely hope to be back at the Beach House frequently and soon. Thank you to the owners and the property manager for making this such a special oasis. Selfishly, we almost didn't want to write a review because we feel like we have found such a hidden gem but alas... all the more reason to share it.

BEACH HOUSE EXCELLENCE

  • 5 of 5
The Beach House is a unique and wonderful holiday experience. The House is a beautifully styled, immaculate and thoughtfully equipped property set in a most magic and beautiful location and to wake every morning to views over the water with the potential for Orca sightings is a brilliant start to each day.
Sandy & Dan were incredibly friendly, welcoming and accommodating and went out of their way to ensure that we had the best experience of the House, Point Bob and the surrounding area. Their freshly caught and cooked crab went a long way to recommending them to these seafood lovers!
Point Bob is a delightful enclave and we were happy to spend our time visiting the local restaurants, walking in the parks, having drinks by the fire pit and horse riding.
We have stayed in many holiday homes in different parts of the world and I can say that The Beach House is quite likely the very best. The website and photos tell no lies - the property is every bit as beautiful and comfortable as the photos suggest.
The hardest part was walking away at the end of our stay...

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT COMMUNITY, GREAT NEIGHBORS

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beach house, and look forward to returning. The property manager was very accommodating, and the house is amazing. I would highly recommend a stay here, if you are visiting Point Roberts, or the Vancouver area.

A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR OUR WEDDING!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous family wedding at this wonderful house by the ocean. I just can't say enough about how professional the property manager was to work with and how warmly and enthusiastically she assisted us in every way to make our event easy, beautiful and memorable. Right from our first inquiry through to the day, she was available to support and assist with everything finding additional bed and breakfast rooms for our guests to providing fold up chairs. She even provided a lovely welcoming basket with champagne on our arrival! She and her husband were just a delight to deal with. The house itself is stunning and very well arranged for large gatherings. We were blessed with sunny weather for our three day weekend and the beach walks and magnificient view added so much to establishing an easy and relaxed atomsphere for our guests. I had been intially concerned about having my young grandchildren stay at the house with us because of the horizontal wire arrangement of the upstairs railings but we were easily able to block the stair access and the layout of the main floor made it very easy to keep an eye on them. They (along with everyone else!) loved the little seating nook. All in all, everyone had a lovely time and I would highly recommend this house (and the property manager) to anyone.

PERFECT (LAZY) VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a glorious week in a secret paradise! I live in Washington and never knew we kept such a unique part of the state in Canada. Our clan came from as near as Seattle and as far away as St Paul, MN and Wichita, KS to enjoy Point Roberts and the Beach House. We were so in love with the house with its amazing views and comfortable interior that we hardly went anywhere else! Mornings in the hot tub on the upper deck; afternoons playing croquet on the lawn; evenings sitting around the fire pit. The Beach House had everything we needed for a perfect vacation. We fell in love with the people of Point Roberts and enjoyed watching the wildlife from the house – including WHALES!! I would definitely recommend visiting the Beach House.

GREAT SUMMER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We try to escape the heat of SouthTexas in the summer and our trip to Point Roberts did just that - and more! The Beach House at Point Roberts is all that is promised by the owners Terry and Kelli. The pictures do the property well, and are exactly what you enjoy. The pictures cannot tell the whole story and your experience will be the best you could imagine. The house is excellent in every way, from the Roche Bobois furniture, to the Bose-supported A/V systems, to the professional kitchen, the gas grille, the wonderful sheets in every room. Oh yeah, and the hot tub AND the fire-pit - one cannot find anything more they would need or want!

We found the town OK, though we did not want for anything. We did find the golf course Spectacular. What a wonderful bonus for us.

For anyone who wants a lovely home, right on the water, and perfect in everyway, the Beach House at Point Roberts is just the place. Quiet, beautiful and most comfortable and enjoyable.

We look forward to experiencing the wonders of Point Roberts and the Beach House again - soon and often.
