About Danielle

My husband and I grew up on the Oregon Coast and developed strong ties to small communities and the Pacific Ocean. During college we spent our summers working on San Juan Island and soon realized this was a place of unique beauty that kept calling us back every year. Fortunately our lively-hoods took us in the direction of the arts, nature & wildlife, a perfect combination that allowed us to make this special island our home.

Danielle purchased this house in 2002

Why Danielle chose San Juan Island

Our property is a true paradise with privacy and spaciousness. At any given time a variety of wildlife can be spotted either walking by or flying above. Glimpses of Westcott Bay are just in the distance with fresh seafood to suit a King. The quaint & historic seaside village of Roche Harbor Resort backs our property offering a multitude of activities, restaurants and shopping.

What makes this house unique

Whether you just need a true escape or plan special family get togethers, Quarry Point Retreat is a perfect destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently spent a week in mid-September with our son, daughter-in-law and their 3 year old and couldn't have imagined a nicer place to be for a lazy vacation. The private vacation home is situated with water views on three sides with a very sizable yard for playing games with our grandson or just watching the ever-present deer. The home has a open layout that was great for those cooking and those just keeping the cooks company, but quite quiet for late sleepers. The owners have thought of just everything that visitors might need from a closet full of board games to a rice steamer (read over what is listed in the vacation home...all is really there). And the owners greeted us just after arrival with fresh coffee beans and fruit. We spent lots of time on the deck that has lounging furniture, table and chairs and a gas grill. This rental is in Roche Harbor which has good dining and some shopping, but only 15 minutes from Friday Harbor where the ferry lands. We were able to kayak easily from Roche Harbor and saw many seals in the fairly calm waters. Although the island isn't too hilly for biking, the roads are narrow. It's better to take the ferry with bikes to Orcas Island for a day of cycling. But, there are more things to do on San Juan Island than you can pack in in one week anyway. We enjoyed the Alpaca Farm and watching the Orca Whales off Lime Kiln Park.

A repeat visit that we really enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely stocked with supplies, well managed and maintained. The rooms are spacious and the deck is really great. Overall, it is bright and comfortable. We'll happily book it again since it's located near all the things we enjoy about the Roche Harbor area.

Thanks for helping us make a memorable vacation!

Beautiful, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring the San Juan Islands, and the Quarry Point Retreat was the perfect place to stay for our family. The house was clean, well-kept, and very comfortable. Our family of 6 was very well-accommodated. The location is beautiful and peaceful, but also an easy drive to Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor for activities. We especially enjoyed seeing the deer and hummingbirds from the deck!

Wonderful setting in relaxed environment.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent visit for 3 nights. Place was very clean and fully stocked with lots of nice touches. Loved how quiet things were and just sitting on the deck sipping a beverage and listening to nature. Owner very easy to work with and quick to respond. The to go coffee cups for our early check out was a nice touch. We would definitely stay again! Thankyou!!

A Wonderful San Juan Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing stay at this beautiful home on San Juan Island! We were delightfully surprised at the cleanliness and warmth the home had when we arrived. Pictures do not do this property justice!

The large back porch and yard were one of the highlights of our stay! We had a wondeful times outside using the great barbecue to grill, we enjoyed playing catch in the large yard and also loved all the wildlife on the property! We saw deer, bald eagles, and fox!

If you are looking for a home away from home I recommend this property for your vacation! The location is wonderful, being so close to Roche Harbor, and I am delighted to say my family and I have made many wonderful memories here!

A Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at Quarry Point Retreat and had a wonderful time. The home and surrounding property was more than what we expected and we really enjoyed spending time out on the deck, both eating meals and relaxing and playing games. We took walks daily in the surrounding areas and it was absolutely beautiful. The house had everything we needed......all we brought were the clothes we needed and everything else was already there! The views from the deck were beautiful and it was just a great place to relax and unwind. We will absolutely stay here again when we come back to San Juan Island
