Property Details

Updated: May 25, 2015
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

San Juan Island is whale watching paradise and Crest View is an ideal vacation home. Crest View is a large, recently constructed quality custom home which has water views from all rooms except baths, a gourmet kitchen, new furnishings and accommodates up to 9 persons. It is in a wooded, secluded setting with a sunny eastern side that overlooks San Juan Channel.

The drive to Friday Harbor takes about 4 minutes. Renters have access to a neighborhood private beach for launching kayaks/canoes. Famous Roche Harbor Resort and Spa is approx 5 miles.

Crest View is an ideal home base for island activities; its forested acres are a haven for deer, eagles, fox, and other animals; a sunny playground for picnicking, and playing horse shoes, ping pong, crochet and bocce ball; a quiet place to read or watch boats passing through the San Juan Channel.

Children are welcome, pets may be welcome, smokers are not.

About the Owner

Crest View was built by me and my husband, Sammy Long in 2006. We live on the west side of San Juan Island where we look across Haro Strait to Vancouver Island. Sammy is a sculptor specializing in bronze busts and figures. I specialize in making furniture I design and wood carving. We have our Spirit Bear studio here on the island. I do volunteer work for the UW Friday Harbor Marine Labs and Sammy does community service.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
This home was an outstanding place to stay during our week in Friday Harbour. It's well maintained and simply beautiful. The owners have taken the time to ensure that you are never bored while there. Between the board games, DVD'S, ping pong table, or just sitting on the back deck drinking a glass of wine, you'll never be bored. Oh and there are frequent visits from the local deer. We'll definitely stay here again.

The house was nicer than the pictures suggest and meticulously clean! The ping pong table in the garage was a big hit for us! The owners are very helpful and a delight to work with. There is something negative to note though. There were no blinds on the bedroom windows, except for the master bedroom, so when the sun came up it was bright. The owners have indicated that they will be added, but if that would be an issue for you, check to make sure it has been done. We recommend this property to families who appreciate cleanliness, spaciousness, and are comfortable maintaining the owner's high standards.

Owner's Response: Our cleaning team attempts to keep Crest View in top shape for the enjoyment of our renters and appreciates it so much when they get feed back. The window coverings in the upstairs bedrooms have been installed.

Beautiful spacious home with view from every room

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay. This house has a large kitchen and was very comfortable for 9 of us. We loved the deck on the back and grilled every night. The ping pong table in the garage was a huge bonus. The views from every room were spectacular. Huge walk in closets were like having extra rooms for privacy.

You walk less then 5 minutes to a private beach where we enjoyed each evening after dinner. It's a 5 minute drive to both Friday and Roche Habour. Highly recommend this house!

Island Retreat (perfect for a family) - great view!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property with another family and it was just was just right. We had a fabulous time! The home is really great and offers a great layout for those who intend to be in the "common areas" most of the time. It's a great distance from Friday Harbor and away from the Ferry or sea plane noise. It's also a quick drive to any of the island activities.

The owners were wonderfully engaged, nice and responsive. They really care about this property and are keen that its residents enjoy their stay.

It's really a better fit for 8 people (as the bed for the 9th person is a daybed), but, with smaller children it works just fine. We would love to return and would absolutely look to stay here!

From the Owner

The San Juan Islands are one of the most beautiful locations in this world. We are within 90 miles of Seattle, Victoria BC and Vancouver BC - three stunning cities. The climate is mild, the wild life is abundant, the scenery is too beautiful to believe, the orcas are astounding - it is heaven. Friday Harbor is a charming town with good stores, art galleries, excellent restaurants, high quality community theater, and an excellent rural hospital.
