Watch The Whales Go By From This Spacious West Side Home!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 12, 2014
Waterfront, West Side, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Enjoy the amazing views from the deck as you watch the whales swim by and local eagles fish! The great room with wonderful deck and patio access is on our main floor. A large modern kitchen, eating bar, and dining room are open to the living room with TV and video library. Downstairs is the second living area with kitchen and solarium for dining and table games. Another master bedroom is also downstairs. Kids will enjoy the bunk room with 2 beds and an extra full size mattress. A full bath and second washer/dryer combination is also on this level.

It's a short, easy stroll to the nearby resort and marina where whale watch and kayak tours begin. A small store is also open there. Roche Harbor Resort is a short drive from our house, where a larger grocery store and restaurants are open everyday. The Resort is a gateway to international waters as Canada is only a few miles away. Hundreds of weddings take place at Roche and our house is a popular spot for guests to stay. Especially since we're so close and large enough for 9.

*Please note that, while the home owners welcome families, the property sits on a bluff with high-bank waterfront exposure and may not be suitable for small children*

**Prices do NOT include taxes and fees. For full price quote please email owner. **

Beautiful West side Home

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our trip to San Juan Island. We had three couples and each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. All of the beds were comfortable and had nice, clean linens. The home is beautiful and clean. We spent a lot of time on the patio which overlooks the water on the West side of the island. This was perfect because you have beautiful sunsets and a better chance of seeing whales. We saw eagles from the patio several times during our stay. We did not see whales from the patio, BUT we did see Orca whales on two different excursions. It was amazing! We were there in August so the weather was absolutely perfect. The high was in the upper 70's with lows in the 50's. We hiked at Lime Kiln park and enjoyed sunsets there as well. While hiking through this park we saw otter's. It is beautiful!
San Juan Island is small so it is very easy to navigate and learn your way around. This home is very close to Roche Harbor which is beautiful and has amazing restaurants! We also shopped and dinned in Friday Harbor which is equally fun and delicious! We never had a bad meal at any of the dining establishments! The people are friendly. The only downside is the ferry ride to and from Anacortes. You have to be in line for the ferry ride at least two hours before your designated time. If not, you will miss out! I would absolutely stay at this home again and visit the beautiful San Juan Islands!

Great time

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the home. It was perfect for our needs. Two items that could be better

1. For the money I paid, I expected the grill to have propane. After I began to use the grill, I found it only lasted 5 minutes. If I need to buy propane, tell me or remove the grill.

2. The step between the dining and living room is dangerous. I see it mentioned many times in the guest book as well. I suggest you find a solution before someone gets hurt and you are sued.

Other than that, really loved the place! Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi Steve!
We are really glad you enjoyed your time on San Juan Island and at the West Side Whale House.
We strive to make sure our guests needs are met and want to ensure that their stay with us is a memorable vacation - in the very best way possible.
We apologize that the grill ran out of propane while you were barbecuing – we will work to have 2 tanks out there but in the future please feel free give us a call if any issues arise. We would have been happy to run you out a fresh tank.
We really appreciate the feedback about the step down to the living room and will pass the feedback on to the home owner and suggest putting down some reflective tape.
We do hope you come back to visit San Juan Island again soon and hope you will again choose SJI Vacation Rentals.

San Juan Island Gem

  • 5 of 5
This home has views and delight galore as it sits on a hillside overlooking the pristine waters of the Northwest. Our large family slept comfortably and the home was clean and inviting throughout. Meals on the outdoor deck are a treat with the occasional American Bald Eagle soaring overhead! The home is a walk away from Snug Harbor where whale watching and kayaking excursions are fun for all. The beauty of San Juan Island is unprecedented and this house fits right at home on the Island.
Couldn't be happier with our stay and accommodations - a real treat.

Serenity in the San Juan Islands

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a long weekend in May with my family and we had a wonderful time. The views were phenomenal, the house was comfortable, and the island was relaxing. We had a group with boy young children and young adults, and everyone had space in the house and activities during the day.
The house was recently remodeled, and the owner did a fantastic job on both the indoor and outdoor space. Some of our favorite times were dining on the decks.
