Check out our video! It will appear as the 3rd image as you scroll through the pictures. (Turn up the volume!)

This beautiful waterfront home was built in 2003. It is a 2,900 sq. foot, two story home which easily accommodates 4 couples and allows each couple their own large, private bedroom. The addition of the separate apartment ($75 per night) lets a fifth couple join the fun.

The top floor has a large bedroom with a queen Sleep Number bed and private balcony with beautiful views. A large bath/dressing room separates this bedroom from the water side of the home. Here you will find a lovely living room with a private balcony overlooking the yard, pond, and bay. It has a gas fireplace and large wall-mounted TV. A queen Murphy bed allows this room to be used as a large, separate bedroom. Also on this floor is a fully equipped kitchenette.

The main floor has a fireplace, 2 queen bedrooms, large bathroom with jetted tub, 1/2 bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with two bar areas and an eat-in area. The living room has huge windows looking out over the koi pond, yard, mountains and bay. There is a 70" wall- mounted HD Sharp TV in this room.

The large dining area seats 10.

This property easily accommodates 5 couples, giving privacy to all.

This home sits on over 2 landscaped acres of land on a bluff above Long Beach on Camano Island. It is accessed via a bridge just 13 miles west of I-5. (No ferry boat!) Enjoy stunning views of Port Susan Bay, the Cascade Mountains, and Mt. Rainier. The sun and moon rising over the mountains and water will take your breath away! Sit at the bar or in the gazebo and watch the boaters and swimmers enjoying the warm water, sandy beach, and beautiful driftwood shore.

The Asian inspired landscaping is a work of art. Stroll through the various gardens and discover unsurpassed beauty in the trees and plantings. Pick a fresh pear, apple, or plum. Watch the koi swim in the large pond while hummingbirds and goldfinches dart in and out of the waterfalls. Look up and see bald eagles and blue heron landing on top of old growth fir and madronna trees.

Come prepared to play! Practice your golf swing in the game area or play volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, tetherball or croquet. Comb the beach for treasures. Swim or wade in the warm, clear water. Bird watch at Iverson Spit. Walk through the trails of the 132 acres of Nature Conservancy property of Barnum Point which abuts our property. The little ones will love discovering the Secret Kids Club next to the house.

When darkness falls, the lights of Stanwood, Warm Beach, Everett, and the Boeing Plant sparkle off the bay. Sit under cover in the salt-water hot tub and gaze at the stars. Or build a fire in the fire pit & toast marshmallows.

If you need extra room, there is a separate guest apartment available. It has 1 queen bed, a kitchenette, TV, and bathroom w/shower. It is $75 per night and will only be rented out to guests renting the main house in order to insure their privacy.

This property is only 15 minutes from I-5 and only 5 minutes from Stanwood. It is only 2 miles from Camaloch Golf Course; a large IGA grocery store; Sub Way sandwich shop; Ace Hardware; 5 restaurants/bars; gas station and more.

About Jackie O'Brien

We bought a cabin on Camano Island in 1988 and spent our summers there. After we retired we began living on Camano permanently in 2008.

Jackie & Mike O'Brien

Jackie O'Brien purchased this house in 2008

Why Jackie O'Brien chose Camano Island

In 2008 we purchased this property and furnished it with every detail for our dad to live in but an accident prevented him from ever moving in. Our friends urged us to share this home with others, so we listed it on VRBO.

It has become our labor of love.

We live nearby and we maintain the house and property with the help of our son, Alex.

What makes this house unique

This property is very special in every way. It is unique as a vacation rental because it allows everyone to have large, private spaces with spectacular views and easy access to our private sandy, beach.

Its close proximity to I-5; restaurants; grocery stores;

entertainment; and more, makes it the best location on Camano.

It has become a joy for us when we meet our guests and hear their impressions of this beautiful home and property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This note was written in the guest book that we have at the house by a darling little girl who stayed this weekend. Here it is exactly the way she wrote it:

"Note from Alli March 8th, 2014

This is one of our favorite reviews ever!

Thanks, Alli!

Relaxing Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We adore Patty's Place and come every year for an annual Girls' Weekend. It has absolutely every little thing you could need or want for a great vacation. The hot tub is great! It's covered in case of rain so you can use it and soak in the view year round. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook, lots of pots and pans, dishes and serving wear galore, even a crock pot! There are lots of games, books, puzzles and DVDs to keep you occupied indoors as the fireplace warms the living room. There are comfy seats for everyone in the cozy living room, as well as so many places to spread out and relax. We always come in the winter, but we'd love to come in the summer to enjoy all that Patty's Place has to offer. There is a lit up gazebo for afternoon tea or late night chats, a koi pond, lots of other activities. Jackie takes good care of guests, is a great communicator, there are tons of extra pillows, blankets etc to ensure you have a very comfortable and relaxing stay. I cannot say enough good things about Patty's Place!

The property is indeed stunning, and much more.

  • 5 of 5

The beauty begins as you make the last turn to the house, with amazing wood and metal sculptures leading to the driveway. The well thought through ramp, is wildly convenient with bright happy red wagon to make the move-in and move-out easy. Windows and more windows, colors soothing, furniture cozy and inviting, large dining table with comfortable chairs. The windows out to the gardens and water are everywhere. The large pristine hot tub, more sculptures, fire pit, gazebo and spectacular landscaping, large pond with beautiful fish, all lead to the vast expanse of water. The interiors are perfect, especially the jacuzzi tub on the first floor, three baths, spacious kitchen with every utensil or tool for cooking imaginable. Next to the kitchen is another room with large sink, great for flower arranging etc., and a second refrigerator. Upstairs, more beauty, views, comfortable everything. And if you like television, there could easily be five of them throughout the house, tastefully placed. The owners are as special as the house, over the top, caring, thoughtful, fully committed to providing everything imaginable for the most enjoyable stay possible. I forgot to mention all the toys, games. bikes, sports equipment for all age levels. Have fun. 🎈?

One Particular Harbor--Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Patti's Place was once again the perfect setting for our gathering. This is our 2nd year in a row staying in the place and it worked perfectly for our annual event. The weather gave us spectacular Sunrise and a great evening of a spectacular view of the sound.

The house has all the accommodations of what you would expect your house to be furnished with and more. We enjoyed ourselves out on the lawn relaxing after a hard day of play. The grounds are gorgeous.

Owner Jackie has this house set up perfectly. There is plenty of sleeping arrangements and fit our crowd perfectly. The Murphy bed is to die for!!!! We will definitely return. A must stay!!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Lance, Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your stay this past weekend. We appreciate your kind words. It was flattering that your film group ('Too Many Cooks') chose to return to Patty's Place to create your entry for the Tacoma Theater's amateur filmmakers' contest. We enjoyed getting to preview the final project and are confident that your film will take 1st Place! Good luck! Jackie, Mike & Alex

Perfect for any group

  • 5 of 5

So my husband and I have rented this home with our kids and grandkids. Perfect! I have rented it with my sister and two girlfriends. Perfect! This time we rented it with an elderly couple and it was perfect again. They loved just sitting in the living room watching the water, the eagles and the local raccoon. The downstairs bedroom and ADA bathroom were just right for them. My husband and I loved the privacy and view from the upstairs. I could easily cook gourmet meals three times a day as this kitchen has everything I needed. A new Grocery Outlet in Stanwood was just what I needed as well for groceries. I love shopping the "Second Chance" Thrift Store on the island that benefits the seniors there. Great bargains and even found an extra suitcase to bring treasures home in. I also loved the fact that I could walk to the beautiful quiet beach when I needed a break and found agates, sea glass, shells and driftwood , all of which I brought home. The neighborhood is beautiful to easily walk. The owners are Fabulous Folks! Can't wait to go back in June with family.

Best Rest Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Did you ever go home from a vacation exhausted when you should have been rejuvenated? I promise you this will not happen to you in this home. Grandparents had perfect quiet bedroom and private bathroom downstairs while kids and grandkids had two bedrooms (which sleep 4 in one with two Q's and 2 in the other Q) and Jack and Jill full bath between them. We took great day trips and yet relaxed on the over 2 acres with bocce ball, badminton, tetherball, volleyball and riding bikes and yet later sipping wine while watching the eagles fly over head. It is the quietest home we have ever rented and will be back!

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie & Jack. Thank you for taking the time to write a great review. We really enjoyed having your family at Patty's Place. You had great weather for eight out of your nine day stay which gave the kiddos plenty of time to dig clams and use the beach and the property to its fullest extent. We are looking forward to seeing the girls group in October. Don't forget to include me in your 'junking' day! Jackie & Mike
