PRIVATE BEACH, HOT TUB, VIEW OF MOUNT BAKER, CLOSE TO GOLF COURSE, TENNIS COURSE & FRIDAY HARBOR

Before San Juan Island was discovered as a travel destination, Friday Harbor was a cluster of modest houses on a few central streets. When the commercial area began to expand, two of the vintage homes were preserved by moving them south of town and onto a beautiful stretch of Griffin Bay waterfront. Creatively connected by a new central living space, these historic structures now form the opposing wings of a delightful island residence.

The property is located behind a gated entry, so it’s extremely private, however THE GOLF CLUB AND TENNIS COURTS (OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND YOU CAN USE OUR RACKETS) ARE JUST ACROSS THE ROAD and town amenities are within a few miles. The landscape surrounding the home is simply gorgeous, offering 8 sunny acres of garden, grassy clearings with a badminton set you can use, ponds to explore, and a hot tub under the starlit sky. And then there is the beach. Just wander down a pathway at the shoreline to find your own sheltered pebbled cove, complete with driftwood logs, tide pools, and a dead-ahead view of Mount Baker. This is where you will likely spend many hours in quiet contemplation and enjoying picnics. This beautiful waterfront is also a great spot for launching kayaks and there’s even a buoy for your use. _Confirm size of boat prior to arrival._

Those seeking to relive carefree childhood summers will love this vacation home. The older sections of the residence create a sensation of remembrance. One wing rambles through a small office into a master bedroom with king size bed, en-suite bathroom, and walk-in closet. Above the office is a semi-open loft with two twin beds where children and teens can snuggle up. _Note that there are low ceilings and non-conforming stairs & railings._ The kitchen with breakfast nook and the laundry room are on the main level of the second wing.

Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed plus futon, and the second with one double bed and one twin bed. A second bathroom with tub/shower is on the upper level as well. The two older wings are separated by the dining room and living room. Satellite TV & WiFi are provided as well. The waterside windows frame an incredible view of the bay, glorious sunrises, and Mount Baker. Stretching across the front of the home is an inviting deck containing lounge and dining furniture plus a propane BBQ.

The home is comfortable, attractive, and unpretentious. The atmosphere is a small step back in time, a place that children of all ages will cherish as they run barefoot in the yard, wade at the shore, play games and laugh. Come make your own Island memories at Griffin Bay Beach; we expect you will want to return year after year.

Beautiful view, private beach, hot tub, plenty of room for me and 8 of my friends. What more could I ask! This was exactly what I was looking for. The house had major character and it was so nice being on such a large piece of property. The private beach was my personal favorite part. Also, very conveniently located to Friday Harbor.

Excellent location, setting and view. Wonderful cove to enjoy. The kids loved exploring the treasures at the cove and searching for snails. I will remember the view from the living room and kitchen for the rest of my life. The management company was so helpful and professional -- as a frequent vacation renter, they were the best I've ever worked with.

Wonderful stay! This was a perfect home for our multi- generatial family. The home has bedrooms on both ends of the house with large living areas in the middle. The expansive lawn with beautiful landscaping and beach provide a great play area as well as privacy. It was a very convenient location as well. I hope I have the opportunity to return to this lovely property.

The house was better than expected. Beautiful gardens and very functional living space. I stayed here with my husband, two kids (3 years and 9 mo) and my MIL and FIL. We had plenty of room. The private access beach was one of my favorite parts of the trip. Would love to stay here again.

Lovely location very close to town. Grounds were amazing & private beach access was the icing on the cake. We loved sitting on the deck with coffee looking out at the view.
