Camano Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4+ With Mountain, Water And Sunset View

Welcome to my Camano island vacation home! You are invited to spend some relaxing moments just looking out at the water, doing puzzles or playing chess on the table by the window, playing ping pong in the lower level rec room, walking the short block to the community beach and checking out the sea life and birds, or exploring the island.

Our kitchen is well stocked with new stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator, coffee maker, blender, and toaster, as well as utensils (including a wine bottle opener), pots and pans, dishes and glassware, and a picnic basket ready to go with all the necessities!

The dining table can be set with linens and candles or more casual fare, the propane fireplace provides ambiance as well as quick heat for that cozy feeling, and a couple of rocking chairs are just what is needed to snuggle in with a good book.

There is a television in the living room with dvd and tape player attached, a small collection of dvd's mainly geared to the kids (or the kid in the adult!), wi-fi for your computer, and a cd/radio player.

Master bedroom has a queen sized comfy bed and the master bath has a jetted tub as well as a stall shower. The guest room has a twin and a double, and the guest bath has a stall shower. A laundry room is also available.

The lower level is reached by an outside door and along with the ping pong table you will find space for craft projects such as drift wood pictures, etc.

It has a two car garage, a large deck with table and chairs, and two fenced yards. The front yard includes a patio with fire pit and benches for sitting around the fire. (Marshmallow roasting sticks are in the kitchen!)

About Linda McRea

My main residence is in Des Moines, WA where I live with my small dog. I will eventually retire to my Camano home, but am presently spending time near my father and the rest of my family.

Linda McRea purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda McRea chose Puget Sound

I fell in love with the house, yard, community and the view of the Sound. Definitely looking forward to spending more time up there eventually, but want to share it with others for now.

What makes this house unique

The chance to enjoy the view, especially when there is a wonderful sunset, and just relax in a much less hurried atmosphere is the 'calling' of this home. The jetted tub in the master bath can also add to the relaxation factor!

The house was clean and spacious plenty of room for a family to move about.

  • 5 of 5

The neighborhood is quite and relaxing. The water is maybe a two block walk you can see it from the back deck. The back deck is a great spot for your morning coffee or tea in my case! The yard has plenty of room to run around and there is a really nice fire pit . There is game room on the bottom of the house that I wished I 'd had more time to visit. Overall while my trip was short the house was perfect and we found a nice little breakfast cafe (the Crow's Nest) only maybe 10 mins away.

Looking for a total get-away? a great water view complete with a gorgeous sunset over the water? a home with everything you need? Linda's house on Camano Island is just the ticket. In our case, it was a getaway weekend and we have a fabulous stay. Linda's house is comfortable, well-appointed, easy to find, has a great front yard and garden, complete with a fire-pit. Linda is a great owner as well, and is attentive to guest guest needs. Certainly a place you will visit more than once.

Thanks, Linda, for a great experience.

Perfect beach house for our weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfully decorated beach home that has the most amazing view. Linda has everything right there for you and missed nothing to help adults and kids have a great time. The beds were comfy, kitchen fully equipped, fire pit with wood in the yard and ping pong in the basement was a huge hit. Thanks so much for opening your home!

Mother Daughter Island Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful beach home for a week while we visited family on the island and in Seattle. The breath taking sunset views each day were amazing! The home is so comfy, cozy, and well stocked with everything you need! The outside space is inviting and boasts views of the beautiful ocean. It is a very short walk down to the beach to practice skipping rocks! We enjoyed several evenings of playing card games around the kitchen table. The very thoughtful owner left easy to follow instructions for all of the electronics and kitchen appliances. The wifi worked excellently. We are picky about our drinking water, and it was fabulous straight from the tap. The master bed was very comfortable. The neighbor was very nice and helpful, too! My daughter and I felt so at home during our stay.

From the home, we saw whales swimming by and watched as the many humming birds enjoyed the beautiful flowers on the property. I hope to stay here again! Thank you so much, Mrs. Linda, for a fabulous vacation home.

Wifi/Internet Does Not Work - Owner not responsive enough

  • 2 of 5

We chose this location for our 3 night stay based on the description of the amenities. Home was clean and accomodating for most of what we needed. Close to the beach, great view and quiet.

Wifi/Internet was listed, but never got it to work. We needed it for our son in the evenings (instead of tv), for me to keep in touch with my small business, and my wife to catch up on a class. I ended up spending about 4 hours trying to get a resolution. Owner was out of the country and didn't really know what to do, suggested we play ping pong instead. I filed a complaint with VRBO and finally the owner got the cable company to come out the last night we were there to fix it ( but it still never worked).

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the internet problem was an issue for you. I believe I did make the proper calls to set you up with a working internet, but the final result was the fault of the internet company whose technicians failed to fix the issue.

Camano Island is across a bridge (instead of a ferry ride) and approximately a 90 minute drive up I 5 north from Seattle. There are two state parks on the island (requires Discover Pass or $10 day fee), several antique and thrift stores, and dozens of weekend estate and garage sales. You can find elegant dining at the Camano Island Inn as well as casual dining choices on the island and close by in the town of Stanwood. Golf can be found at Camaloch Golf Course on the east side of the island and a zip line attraction is another adventure. Lavender fields, locally grown organic foods, and many other local events are listed in the Crab Cracker, our local free publication which is published twice a month.
