Quaint Beachfront Cottage Minutes from Seattle
Bud and Joan welcome you to their private, no bank waterfront, two-bedroom, two bath, home, located on the first bay on rural Camano Island, Washington, USA; a nice drive, about 60 minutes north of Seattle. No ferry, no lines. Relax the moment you arrive.
Enjoy the Outdoors Every Waking Moment
Enjoy a pleasant beachside landscaping that blends into the sand and driftwood, complete with a cutting herb garden for your culinary experiments. Besides the kitchen there is a large briquette barbeque plus a private bonfire pit on the beach for roasting marshmallows. Beautiful sherbet sunsets at dusk make way to stars that light up a dark sky. It’s captivating.
A Beach Experience Right Outside. A few strides across the lawn and you’re at the beach. You can simply sit and sip your favorite beverage on the viewing deck or be more adventurous and launch the paddle board, swim to the raft, or try one of our “floaty” things in water that is often unbelievably bathtub warm. For birds, the bay is an important, food rich stopover, estuary in Puget Sound: owned by the Nature Conservancy. You can use our high quality “glasses” to spot birds and then identify them in our bird book library. (Well over 100 different species have been seen from the beach.) The thrill of walking among many of the smaller migrating birds, as you stroll the flats at low tide, brings a new meaning to communing with nature.
