About Ed West

We love to sail, bike and volunteer our time, and we intend to pursue our passions in the Anacortes area when we retire. In the mean time, we are raising our family in La Crosse Wisconsin.

Ed West purchased this house in 2010

Why Ed West chose Fidalgo Island

Mary Ellen and I have been vacationing in the area for 25 years and have decided that we want to live in Anacortes when we retire. In the meantime, we will share our home with others so they too can enjoy this beautiful area of the country

What makes this house unique

Anacortes is an especially great place to do some biking, go whale watching, Kyaking and visits to the San Juan Islands and Victoria via the Washington Ferrys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was perfect! We could get used to this view. It was so nice to be able to spread out a bit in the comfort of your house! We will be checking the calendar to see when we can come back."....Swim family from Snohomish

This was a wonderful home-away-from-home; couldn't have asked for better!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a great location! The home accommodated our group perfectly. It's in a quiet neighborhood...and what a view from the back deck!!! Everything we needed was there, and any questions we had were promptly answered - communication from the owners was excellent. We would stay there again & highly recommend it to others!

This home is large and comfortable with a great view. The neighborhood is quiet and easy to get to.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying here! We have a large family and we're thrilled to find a place to accommodate all of us at a reasonable price. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies (except for a pizza cutter?) and there was plenty of towels and bedding. We really appreciated that there was a washer and dryer available as well. The extra refrigerator in the basement was a bonus since we had a lot of groceries. The only (tiny) glitch was that the binder with home's additional notes was missing pages- most notably the WiFi information. I called the owner, Ed, and he returned my call promptly with the needed WiFi and password. We would definitely stay here again! If you have a big family, you'll love this place!

Big, Beautiful, Well Stocked Home Near Ferry Dock in Anacortes

  • 4 of 5

This home is perfect for a multi-family stay. It is spacious, clean, and incredibly well stocked with everything from shampoo/conditioner to laundry detergent! Highly recommend this home if you have a large group and don't mind being a short drive from downtown Anacortes.

Wonderful Vacation Home with awesome sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a spectacular week in this lovely home in Anacortes. What a beautiful "homebase" to take off to the San Juan Islands and Canada, as well as exploring all Anacortes has to offer! The home is very well situated and equipped and very comfortable. All the arrangements were super easy and the owner extremely helpful with tips, etc. The sunsets off the back deck will take your breath away!! Highly recommend this home ~

We had a great weekend stay. The house was very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen is well stocked for making meals at home. Very clean. There's a nice deck with scenic view of water and spectacular sunsets. We'd come back again!

Wonderful wedding weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect space for us during the days leading up to our wedding. The kitchen was very well stocked and the bedrooms were all adorable and comfortable. A bath in the jet tub in the master suite was just the ticket for relaxing amidst all the lead up stress.

We enjoyed the view from the porch at sunrise and for star gazing at night. The morning of our wedding I sat at the kitchen table with my coffee and felt grateful for the peaceful space to prepare in. I would recommend this home to families and friends of various ages, it's got a little something for everyone!

Thanks again Ed!
