Sundin Beach Cottage

Sundin Beach Cottage

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 21, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Quaint Beachfront Cottage Minutes from Seattle

Bud and Joan welcome you to their private two-bedroom, two bath, home away from home, located on the first bay on rural Camano Island, Washington, USA; just a short 60 minutes north of Seattle. No ferry, no lines. Relax the moment you arrive.

Enjoy the Outdoors Every Waking Moment

Savor a professionally maintained yard, complete with a cutting herb garden for your culinary experiments. Besides the kitchen there is a large briquette barbeque plus a bonfire pit on the beach for roasting marshmallows. Beautiful sherbet sunsets at dusk make way to stars that light up the night sky. It’s captivating.

A Beach Experience Right Outside

A few strides across the lawn and you’re at the waters edge. 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 amongst many of the smaller migrating birds as you stroll the flats at low tide, brings a new meaning to communing with nature.

Generous Soothing Space Sleeps Six

Open space for gathering, eating and relaxing together with two private bedrooms, it’s perfect for families or couples. Each bedroom sleeps two with a convertible couch for another two. It’s decorated in a comfortable and cozy style,

You can also relax in a library alcove with a thoughtful selection of books, bask in the sunroom or relish the view in a most comfortable rocking armchair next to the wood stove.

A Kitchen for the Weekend Gourmand

Efficiently fitted out with all the usual and then some. From a chain mail oyster shucking glove to a bag of tea candles for romantic dining. We’ve tried to think of everything you will need to enhance your stay. Nearby local farm markets stock everything from farm fresh organic vegetables, boutique cheese, grass fed beef and much more. We have developed a shopping map for all our favorite specialty food stores, stalls and farms nearby and it’s waiting for your exploration.

Rest and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
The most relaxing time ever. We usually vacationed with family, never just enjoying each other in such an atmosphere.
Everything you need is there, never having to make do with any kitchen items. Organic farms with veggie stands close by and other shopping nearby.
Would reccommend to anyone wanting some R&R.

Great Start to Summer

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was a great recharge family getaway. The cabin was clean, well supplied and a cute seaside decor with plenty to do right on the beach, nice decks to relax on, plenty of local reading material. We found everything we needed within a 5 min. drive and more withing 20 mins. of some good shopping centres. We will be back again and maybe back for a girls getaway. The location was nice and secluded and very quiet. Even with no TV, we found plenty to do and had some quiet family time. There are some great shops and restaurants and antiquing close by in Stanwood, WA. Thanks Bud and Joan for an excellent stay!

Location

From the Owner

We first choose Camano Island because accessing without a ferry made perfect sense. Then it became a puzzle to find the neighborhood that fitted in with our ideals. Those ideals were honed over many years living on the beach in small old fashioned, dead end road, beach communities. We spent weeks looking at every beach on Camano and when we found Sundin Beach it took us literally 2 seconds to decide to buy The Cottage.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Small plane aitport on Camano Island at 2 Miles Nearest Barpub : Terry's Corner at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : Ferry to the San Juans at 18 Miles Nearest Golf : Camano Island at 3 Miles Nearest Train : Stanwood has a new AmTrack depot at 6 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Terry's Corner at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Sundin Beach Car: necessary

Some guests are content to hang out under the umbrella on the viewing deck and watch the beach unfold. Others are all over the beach experience which is almost unlimited. Great beach walks, agates, shells and surprises at every new tide line. The water is often very warm after coming in across the heated beach and even grandparents have been known to swim to the raft. There is a paddle board and numerous; floaty things to play with. If you bring your own kayak launch right there and explore some very interesting and remote areas within the bay only reachable by small boat. The beach has a gentle slope and is kid freindly. Thankfully no one has a jet ski at our beach so we avoid the distracting commotion so common elsewhere. There is excellent birding opportunity right from the viewing deck; glasses and books are provided.

Nearby Stanwood has all the benefits of a small town. Camano Island is noted for its artisans, many of which have open studios and Chihuly former school, Pilchuck Glass is nearby. There is one winery as of this writing and a great wine shop. Golf, boat rental, hiking, biking and sightseeing are all enjoyed nearby. Slightly further a field are the towns of Conway and LaConner with some fabulous restaurants, boutique shopping, antiquing and the famous North West Museum of Modern Art. We have a map and listing of all these locations and more. We have arrangements with some for a discount for our guests.

Amenities

From the Owner

The Cottage was originally a summer 'camp' for a Everett business man: kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, (the boys slept outside in tents) Later the bedroom wing was added with the second bathroom in between giving each bedroom privacy. Both bedrooms were thoughtfully given outside doors so early risers could go for a walk without disturbing others. The Cottage is small, about 1200 square feet, but nicely divided into small gathering areas: sun porch, library, living room and large old library 'dining' table. These small gathering spaces make it seem much more spacious. Likewise, outside there are numerous places to gather and enjoy the view and each other. Sundin Beach is on Livingston Bay, a estuary, and important feeding stop for migrating birds. As you can imagine, the birding can be good to outstanding. The 12 foot tides cause the estuary to run dry at low tide which on its return makes for amazingly warm water on hot summer days. Our favorite time is late fall and winter when we can go up and enjoy each other and the near empty beach, there are only six full time residents. Come back from a brisk beach walk to a blazing wood stove, good book...well you get the picture.
