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.
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.
