About Jihan and Luke Anderson Deryckx

We are a young family who love to split our time between Seattle and Coeur d'Alene. He grew up in Western Washington and She grew up just across the street here in Coeur d'Alene. We're thrilled to be able to share our family's connection to this wonderful neighborhood and community with you.

Jihan and Luke Anderson Deryckx purchased this house in 2003

Why Jihan and Luke Anderson Deryckx chose Coeur d'Alene

The location! Just a short walk to all our favorite things in Coeur d’Alene: downtown, boat docks, beaches, Tubbs Hill, and many great bike paths. Not to mention the great view of the lake and mountains, with the peacefulness of the park leading to Tubbs Hill on one side of the property, it is just a great place to live and vacation.

What makes this house unique

Sandwiched between Tubbs Hill and Sander’s Beach on the quiet side of downtown, it is a little oasis in the middle of everything. With a bubbling Jacuzzi overlooking Tubbs Hill park and a view of the water, you’ll find yourself quickly warmed and relaxed after a day full of activities.

Wonderful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This home is a wonderful home away from home. The location was perfect, the deck and hot tub were a favorite place, as was the living room seating overlooking the window and the lake. Loved the books and games available, the spacious indoor areas, and the neighborhood that gave us beautiful walking paths. The home was very comfortable for the 5 of us. We appreciated finding this gem and will hopefully return to it during our next Coeur d'Alene visit.

So much more than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation home. You cannot beat the location. The cottage — just fabulous! Much bigger than described with so many “little things” ... so much more than just a hotel room. Everybody had a special place to hang out to refresh, rejuvenate, or just take some down time. The picture window, however, became everyone’s morning coffee hangout! Simply stunning! Our host family was also great— checking up on us at check in and then reaching out and responding to questions during our stay. Definitely a favorite on our list and one to which we intend to utilize again!

Peaceful, cozy and great location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the cottage for a long weekend and had such a nice time. Waking up with views of the lake every day was so peaceful, and the location is awesome as it's close to so much: hikes on Tubbs Hill, restaurants, coffee shops, downtown and of course the lake. We'll definitely be back.

The best vacation rental we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and hope we can return someday. They've somehow struck a balance between having the little things that visitors might need (e.g. nightlights) without the place feeling "junked up". Clean, tidy, welcoming. We felt relaxed and at home. A pleasure. :-)

Wonderful cottage- terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the cottage by the lake in August of 2017. Our visit was for the Sunset version of the 140.6 Ironman in Couer D'Alene. My family of 6 was very comfortable. We used the BBQ and jacuzzi on the patio 3-4 times during our stay. Great view of the lake and stars at night. We walked to lake for daily swims and rode bikes to town daily as well. Very close to bike paths and restaurants.

We would highly recommend this cottage! We hope to come back soon!

Thank you Jihan and Luke for sharing your home by the lake

5 Star location, close to Tubbs, the beach, and a short walk to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had such a great time at this house. Walking Tubbs hill every morning, coming back to enjoy the beach in the afternoon, then on to the night life in downtown Couer d'alene. Finally ending the night in the hot tub. It couldn't be located in a more perfect spot. I highly recommend this property for a memory making vacation!
