Camano Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Ahhhh...Island time

Come experience relaxing comfort at this cozy Waterfront cottage, sitting on a high bank above protected Port Susan Bay, on Camano Islands' East side.

You’ll be greeted by an uninterrupted, panoramic view of ocean and Majestic snowcapped Mount Baker and Cascade Mountains.

Welcome to ‘Island time’.

Now that you’ve reached that Ahhh moment, you’ll be comfortably accommodated by a 1000 square foot home with casual furnishings and a neutral palette to keep your mood relaxed and comfortable.

Inside has 2 bedrooms, 1 ¾ baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and a living & dining area. The living room features a cozy wood burning Fireplace, Sofa, a matching 'couple' chair, plus 2 more chairs, a Smart TV, Blu-ray/DVD player and a CD stereo with iPod Doc. The 2 bedrooms - each with comfy queens, comforters or quilts and extra pillows and linens if needed. You can also use the 'Bernhardt Taylor' sofa, in living room, as a single sleeper if needed.

The main bath has a tub with shower and other bath includes shower.

The whole house has been newly updated, on 1 level and easy to get around.

Outside, the deck includes a propane Barbeque, dining set, 2 chaise lounges and Adirondack chairs. A generous yard invites lawn games or stories and roasted marshmallows around the built-in Fire Pit watching the Moonrise. And for you crabbing, fishing and clamming hobbyists, there’s an outdoor ‘Crab Kitchen’ and room for your boat on trailer.

Early risers? - mornings call for coffee and your Adirondack chair bank side to welcome Sunrise Serenity and Eagles above.

This all-season location promises a refreshing getaway with a memory you’ll want to create.


Although my property is waterfront, it has no direct beach access because of the high bank. But just a short 5 minute stroll down our quiet waterfront road, you will find access to over 3 miles of private, community beach for plenty of beach combing. The trade off for the privacy is worth it. :)

About Jama

Dad grew up in the Skagit Valley area and came back again to retire. I fell in love with Camano during my endless outings with Mom & Dad.

I started looking, along with an agent, for the perfect little beach property. I knew I wanted to be on the Eastside. One morning, checking my e-mail before leaving town on a trip, I received information and 3 photos of a 'new waterfront listing' . I called my agent as soon as I got to the airport and asked her to look into it. The next thing I knew, I was coming home to my new Beach House. I had bought it sight unseen! Besides trusting my agent, and knowing a bit about the area, it just Felt Good. I'll never forget the 1st time I drove up and saw it... I just sat in the car with tears of Happiness.

I spent a few months updating my new home and the past few years creating wonderful memories with family and friends.

I am currently working on a new project and wish to share my Beach House with you Making Wonderful Memories with yours!

Jama purchased this house in 2005

Why Jama chose Puget Sound


Less rain / lots of sun,

Protected Bay,

The Quiet and privacy of a high bank yet just a short walk to the beach.

I'm on 'Island time', away from the tourists.

Just an hour to Seattle, with no ferry, if I do need a 'city fix'.

My plants/flowers are happier here...

Comfortable, clean, good location and lovely view.

  • 4 of 5

Seven of us spend a week in Camano each summer visiting. We've been friends since 1985 and try to get together at least once a year. Three of us stayed at Jama's house this year - early August. It is in a nice location with wonderful views. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed the house when we weren't out visiting wineries, goat farms, parks and beaches. We didn't really do any cooking at the house but it was nice to come back at night and sit and have a glass of wine outside. Morning coffee and toast at the outdoor table were always nice - before we hurried out to meet friends and start the day. The house is very comfortable and clean with nice amenities. Thumbs up from all of us.

Wonderful cottage on Camano

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful stay. Thank you Jama for the kind, and tasty, welcome. The house was exactly as described. It was very warm and cozy. There is a comfortable deck overlooking the sound and the Cascades. We reviewed lots of properties and made the absolute correct choice with Jama's place. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Perfect little cottage with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jama for sharing your beautiful home with us! We had the pleasure of meeting the hostess and Jama was so gracious, showing us everything about the home and the area.

The cottage is perfectly beachy and simple - has everything you could need - but the draw is the beautiful view! There is a small, very well-designed garden where birds come every morning to feed, the occasional bald eagle flies by, and there are 180 degree views of water.... We had coffee on the back porch every morning. And one evening we had a bonfire in the fire pit.

If you are heading to Camano Island, this home is the perfect peaceful retreat!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Jama's cottage has all the conveniences of home (except I don't keep delicious chocolate chip cookies around) with the added bonus of a wonderful view in a spectacular location. And Jama was very helpful and responsive to questions and concerns. My husband, daughter and I stayed there during our son's wedding on the island and our only regret is that we spent too little time at the cottage. Our one endulgence was sitting in the living room for about 1/2 hr watching all of the hummingbirds and looking out on the beautiful water. We will return for sure when we have time to relax and enjoy it.

Nearest Train
10 Miles

For you crabbing, Fishing and Clamming hobbyist, there is Cavalero boat launch 1/2 mile up the road or if you prefer the State park launch, within 10 minutes on the West side. Great place to launch if you want to zip across to Whidbey Island.

Bring your catch home and enjoy cleaning in our outdoor Crab Kitchen area.
