San Juan Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME ON SAN JUAN ISLAND

This San Juan Island vacation rental home offers sweeping views across San Juan Channel to Orcas Island and other surrounding islands. Floor to ceiling windows invite the exquisite beauty of nature into your living room, kitchen, and dining areas - the waterfront is so near that it feels like part of the living room! The natural environment surrounding this home provides frequent sightings of deer, eagles, porpoise, seals, sea lions, and on occasion, Orca and Minke Whales. This home is an ideal setting for those who enjoy reading, fishing, cooking, hiking, and just relaxing to the sound of the sea.

The living room opens to the deck and is furnished with wall-to-wall carpeting, leather seating, DVD/CD & i-pod player. Wool Pendleton and fleece blankets are thoughtfully provided to keep you cozy while sitting outside by the fire pit or at the waterside bench. Two queen-sized bedrooms face the water and enjoy their own private decks, reading areas & radios. The master bedroom features a seating area and the master bath offers a walk-in shower. A third bedroom contains a set of bunk beds, a second DVD player and a concealed Maytag washer and dryer.

Gourmet cooking and entertaining are encouraged in this vacation home's well-equipped kitchen that offers a bread machine, ice maker, service for 12, serving dishes, candles, new dishwasher, high-tech induction stove top, seasonings, two ovens, & cookbooks. There is a gas BBQ just outside and sage, thyme, rosemary, chives, mint and other spices growing in containers for your use. A wood stove in the dining room (firewood is provided) adds to a cozy evening environment.

Reach the rocky shoreline on an easy path down 4 steps; you might fish for your dinner as fishing, crabbing, and shrimping gear are provided. Hikers will enjoy discovering the Old Growth Forest Reserve just three blocks away. At Channel House, you can blissfully escape from the world as there is no television reception for distraction - but, there is a new 55" HDTV monitor and BlueRay player with lots of WIFI options and movies.

Channel House is located at the end of a private road, just 2.5 miles from the ferry landing and the Town of Friday Harbor, where you will enjoy many shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions.

SITE ADVISORY: ALTHOUGH ACCESS TO THE SHORE IS VIA A GENTLY SLOPING TRAIL, THIS HOME IS NOT SUITABLE FOR SMALL CHILDREN AS THERE ARE HIGHER SECTIONS OF THE PROPERTY NEAR DEEP WATER. IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT SPECIFIC WATER OR ROADWAY CONDITIONS, PLEASE DISCUSS THEM WITH A RESERVATIONIST BEFORE COMPLETING YOUR BOOKING.

Great spot just 5 minutes to Friday Harbor yet very private setting. Plenty of space to gather as a family or to find that quiet spot of your own. Beautiful views with plenty of wildlife right out your doors.

We have visited San Juan Island several times. This was the first time we have stayed in this home...and plan on booking it again. The view was breathtaking and the home had everything we needed. Very clean, comfortable and roomy. Sunsets looking over the water in the evening were gorgeous! So relaxing to sit by the fire pit in the evening or just enjoying some quiet time on the deck. It's just a few miles outside of Friday Harbor, so getting into town was quick. Although you do have neighbors, this home feels very secluded and private. The only thing I would suggest is not be bring a large SUV...the driveway has a sharp turn and it would be a little tricky getting down to the house. We had a midsize SUV and were able to maneuver it around the corner. I would highly recommend this home!

We just loved the Channel House. The place was spotless, the views were AMAZING and it was very secluded, yet only 8 minutes from Friday Harbor. The property management, VacationRentals, were great to work with. I loved the their automated system and important reminder for ferry reservations. We were so please with the Channel House, we rented it again in September via VRBO as we did before. BUYER BEWARE! I got tagged for $120.35 separate credit card charge for going through VRBO. Apparently this is a new fee, and it wasn't very clearly represented on the web site. I will avoid VRBO for any future vacation rentals.

The Channel House was absolutely amazing! It was very secluded, yet only 8 minutes from Friday Harbor. The house was spotless and the kitchen was load with spices, stainless steel cookware, outdoor WEBER grill. The linens were top notch and the beds were very comfy. The views were amazing from any one of the 3 decks. The property manager (VacationRentals) were so great to work with. We've already booked a return vacation in September.
