Utter Seclusion on 600 Feet of Waterfront

Friday Harbor San Juan Island

Bit of Heaven on San Juan Island

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to escape the East Coast and its hectic pace. When we arrived at Point Caution and this property, we found a bit of heaven. We loved how nature enveloped us, the sun...the eagles...the channel...the fish. We even saw a double rainbow. It was a spectacular week enjoying all the islands have to offer. This kitchen is the best stocked of any home I have rented. My favorite spot was the fire pit, ready each evening to lead us into dusk and rest. You will be enchanted by the location. Head west to this special getaway.

Cozy and relaxing with a gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home for 3 nights over spring break. We wanted a nice relaxing trip with our 6 year old son and dog. The view alone made the trip amazing! We loved watching the sunrise with our coffee and having a glass of wine in the evening during sunset. The home had all the comforts of home including a fully stocked kitchen, games, dog amenities such as dog bowl and dog bed, a very comfortable bed and loft and a cozy living room to watch movies. The weather was hit and miss while we were there so we relaxed inside when it wasn't raining and explored outside when the sun came out. When the tide was out there was fun tide pool they our 6 year loved exploring. It was an amazing family vacation. We can't wait to plan our next trip back to the San Juan's and we will definitely be staying here!

Beyond beautiful and amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every precious moment at this beautiful home with the breathtaking scenery. The home had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer! We enjoyed a campfire one evening. We also explored the beach at low tide and savored the fresh air during high tide. Myself, husband, 12 year old son & 11 year old daughter loved our stay here & we were so sad to leave. We cannot wait to return. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The views from inside the house and outside are gorgeous. The location to Friday Harbor was so convenient. We went exploring at American and English Camps and shopping in Friday Harbor. We went on two whale watching trips and experienced the amazing orcas and beautiful Pacific White Sided Dolphins!!! Thank you so so much to Kristy and Charles for sharing your amazing home and property !!! We look forward to a return trip!

Comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from our trip to the San Juan Islands. No need to look any further for a place to stay, this vacation home had every thing one could ask for. We really felt at home here! We brought our 2 year old with us and were a little worried about the spiral stair case and loft, so we brought a baby gate and set it up, worked like a charm!
There are too many amenities to list here! Beautiful serene setting close to town, on the east side of the island so the weather wasn't too extreme. Definitely recommend this hidden little gem to young and old alike!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5
This was just what we needed. So private and secluded but close to Friday Harbor. The house and especially the kitchen is so well equipped. Even though it was December we were blessed with nice weather. The stars were amazing! Unfortunately we had high tides so we couldn't walk on the beach but did have a fire in the fire pit. We would definitely come back. This a keeper!

Great views, Firepit, Sounds of Birds and Nature.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this place was splendid. This place is fully equipped with all your kitchen and household needs and has beautiful views of the water. Nothing beats morning coffee on the patio or even meals. We even utilized the fire pit outside to have a camp fire with smores. The Kings Market is close by for all your grocery needs and prices are at par with even big gorcery stores. Great wine selection as well and for some reason even the meats were more tender.
The nights are great under the stars and with access to a fireplace and electrical heating, this place is very cozy indeed. Very well kept and resourceful. We would definitely be back with friends possibly near the XMAS month.

From the Owner

Wonderful seclusion just an hour's ferry ride from Anacortes. San Juan is quaint and a bit yesteryear. Friday Harbor is a small town with just about everything you need except for franchise stores. San Juan gets about a third of the rainy days of Seattle. The main road is only a mile away and it's a calm rural road which is great for running, walking or bike riding. Turning right just before the winery and heading down a tree arched road we fell in love with our 6 acres of paradise. It is perhaps the finest piece of property on the Island.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : San Juan County Airport at 4 Miles Nearest Ferry : at 3 Miles

Wildlife: The property has all kinds of birds and animals passing through that you rarely see on the mainland: Foxes, tiny San Juan deer, eagles, owls, osprey, woodpeckers. Right off shore you'll see seals, otters and an occasional sea lion. There are several whale viewing spots on the Island.
