About Stephanie

We are a retired Navy family that still love the sea and all the adventures life can hold. Members of our family are still active Military, and we honor those who serve. We are pleased to share our home with those who share our interests in enjoying life.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2009

Why Stephanie chose Fidalgo Island

This is one of the most beautiful places in the Northwest. It is peaceful, serene, and majestic. The waters surrounding the islands invite you to explore each new day, the peaceful sunsets over them give you time to reflect, and the sunrises invite you to do it all over again.

What makes this house unique

Staying at the Quarterdeck House allows you to visit the Islands by day, and relax by night. The surrounding towns, state parks, and local communities offer such a wide variety of things to do it's hard know what to do first. Which is why our guests come back year after year. We invite you to explore and return again too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful stay in your beautiful home! I loved kayaking around Allen Island, it was really challenging, but I enjoyed every second and the views of the mountains were breathtaking. Lucy loved being able to go to the beach every day - I think she could spend all day in the water. Thank you again, and I hope we can come back next year.

Great roomy home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your beautiful place, which was in a nice central location. Lots of extra touches and room provided a great home base for our stay on the Island. We can't wait to go again :) !

Beautiful home - owners optimized home for those of us lucky to visit!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this stay was ideal.

We throughly enjoyed our five night stay and are ready to return! Anacortes was a great home base for us as we explored the area. We loved getting "home" for dinner overlooking the marina and the mountains and the sunsets! We appreciated the many, many things the owners did to make the stay pleasant and easy. It's not as though we stayed at their house but rather we stayed in a beautiful house prepared just for us. Many vacation rentals we have stayed in felt as though we were borrowing a house from owners that would be back any minute. Not this one.

The neighborhood was very pleasant and quiet. We would be happy to return.

Quiet and Sparkling Clean

  • 5 of 5

I will add my voice to the chorus of positive reviews. Our family of three stayed in Stephanie and Mel's delightful 3-bedroom house in Anacortes for five days. This place is so clean and well-maintained it could set the standard for all VRBO rentals, and the owners are very helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had. We had a great time in this lovely town, going whale-watching with Island Adventures (lots of orcas and seals), visiting the friendly downtown area, strolling along the Guemes Channel Trail, hiking in Washington Park (its entrance is a pleasant 17-minute walk from the house), and visiting Deception Pass State Park. I would've loved to to have visited one of the islands but we just didn't make it; we'll have to come back! The last evening at the house, a mother and baby deer visited the backyard, and we picked apples from the owner's apple tree. Memorable and restful visit.

Impressively decorated, maintained and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spectacularly decorated, and ABUNDANTLY supplied with all manner of appliances, conveniences, even a collection of toys. It sports a fine

view of the harbor and Burrows Channel, and the sunsets are magnificent from the back deck. Not just clean, but pristine. Owners are easily available for questions, though instructions on appliance, TV, awning, etc use are comprehensive. A totally marvelous way to visit Anacortes!
