About

WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME ON SAN JUAN ISLAND NEAR ROCHE HARBOR WITH PRIVATE DOCK!

This delightful vacation home near Roche Harbor offers all the essentials to make your vacation memorable - a waterfront exposure, superb location, comfortable furnishings, wood-burning fireplace, communication and entertainment electronics - and a feel-good, unpretentious atmosphere that defines the classic Island lifestyle. This three bedroom home faces south with a view across pristine Neil Bay, and features a great room with floor to ceiling windows that open onto a large bi-level deck. This is where you'll likely spend time catching the sun, enjoying morning coffee, dining on long summer evenings, and watching the eagle, geese, and other bird life explore the nearby salt-water lagoons.

This home is located in a desirable neighborhood on the NW side of San Juan Island, about a 20 minute drive from Friday Harbor and the ferry. You can walk to nearby Roche Harbor within 20 minutes, where you'll find an airstrip, kid's pool, post office, marina, market, artists kiosks, shops, and three restaurants.

If you plan to tour the islands by boat, you'll appreciate the convenience of tying it up to the 40 foot dock. But, do be aware that Neil Bay can go very shallow - tide charts must always be consulted before arrival and departures by private boat.

A doe and her fawn were resting next to the house when we drove up on our first day. Didn't budge an inch until we got our suitcases out of the card and started rolling toward the door. Their casual attitude told us we really on island time now! We saw deer almost daily, along with bald eagles and seals in the bay. The house was spotless when we arrived and had everything needed to make our stay relaxing and stress free. Beds and other furniture was very comfortable and the view of bay from the living area windows added to the relaxation. Most of our party of Texans had never seen tidal flows which raised/lowered the water level by 6 to 10 feet every day. Fascinating! The dock for the house always had good water, but lots of new sea life was revealed as the water came and went. In addition to other activities, while we were on the island we attended a wedding at the Roche Harbor Resort which was only minutes away. Overall, it was a great place to stay and we will check to see if it's available the next we're in the area.

My family really liked this rental property. The layout is nice and there is good outdoor space. In warm/hot weather the deck stays shady and cool. Lack of sun could be an issue for some. One of the steps to the dock needs to be repaired and there is not enough light in the kitchen. Other than that, it is a great place!

This was such a lovely home on Neil Bay. The views were terrific, the cabin had everything you could want to prepare meals and enjoy them inside or out. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean, well maintained and fully furnished with towels and guest toiletries. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend stay.

The directions were perfect. The location was just as described. The house was lovely. Unforunately, the flowers were from the previous week. We threw out the dead flowers and made one bouquet. No flowers would have been better. When we went to go to bed we found one bed had been made with no top sheet. It was too late to call but when I called in the morning a sheet was delivered to the house.

Manager's Response

I want to thank these guests for what is a generally positive review. Obviously, the flowers had been left for an occupancy that was anticipated prior to this guest visit. It should have been cleared and replaced or left with no perishable flowers. We are truly sorry you bed had not been made with a top sheet. I personally know how frustrating that can be. My apology. Please give us another chance to provide you with the perfect vacation rental on San Juan Island.

Amazing! This is our favorite place to stay on San Juan Island. Being boat owners, we love the dock. My family had a wonderful time fishing and crabbing, and enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. We can’t wait to come back next year!

The location was fabulous. The home was well apponted however I think it would benefit from some editing and updating. Getting rid of old tired fake plants and other dated artwork and getting some new lamps, etc. would be nice to have a few lounge chairs to better enjoy relaxing outside.

Spent a wonderful week along a quiet, secluded salt water bay which allowed for casual kayaking, deck lounging and wildlife watching. Very convenient to Roaches Harbor and only a short drive into Friday Harbor. A very enjoyable spot for a family of 4 adults.

This house was very clean and comfortable. The view was wonderful and serene. My kids loved climbing down the steps of the dock and walking around by the water every morning while the tide was out. However, I have two complaints: one, the mattress in the master bedroom should be replaced. It's time. Every time you get out of bed or roll over, the old springs make a horrible noise. I mean, it is LOUD. A peaceful night's rest for the amount of money we paid a night isn't too much to ask. The second complaint - upkeep outside. There were dead potted plants and various yard art scattered about the property. It was a little depressing, actually. Yes, the view is wonderful, the location is awesome -- but again, for the money we paid a night -- a little upkeep would've gone a long way. That said, we had a lovely time. Would we stay there again? Probably not.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, thank you for choosing to visit the San Juan Islands and for your review here. We appreciate your feedback on the house. I have forwarded your comments to our San Juan Island Manager and we are in communication with the owners to address these concerns. We sincerely appreciate your visit and hope you will return again soon. Best Regards, General Manager

Everything was fine, except that the mattress

I took the time to write in the physical guestbook so will be shorter here. The house is located in an amazing part of the island if you like peace and quiet, which is what we were looking for. We traveled from California and obviously did not have a boat but, when not on the property, spent the entire time gazing at the water, changing wildlife, water aspects, light. The kitchen is very well equipped: the best we've ever had in many years of rentals. Most homeowners will throw in their chipped items for renters but this house had good-quality items (not top of line obviously but not chipped or mismatched). Not important to all but it is to us. This is an expensive rental in high season, so we very much appreciated that level of courtesy. The only "child" we brought was 18 years old and adored it. The main complaint was the bed in the master BR, hard as a rock and, weirdly, lets out a deafening "creak" only when the person on the left side gets up. We could nitpick (wish there were kayak/bikes along with the rental) but the rest is minor and cannot offset the wonderful time we had. Granted, we were outdoors and not interested/in need of indoor amenities. Would definitely go back!

Nice quiet location, close to Roche. Layout was perfect for 2 couples. Interior was clean and we'll provisioned. Only negative was the well trained raccoons getting into the garbage. Time to build an enclosure for trash. Trash all over in the am is not the way to start the day. Deck needs some new boards....kinda at their end of life.

I will start with the Refrigerator, door does not close all the the way so hard to keep everything cold.
The owner needs to talk to the the neighbor about working on (cars) at 2,3,4:00 in the morning.The same neighbor lets his (BARKING) dog out about 5:00 am so you can see not easy to get any sleep. I will tell you the home is very nice.Having the dock out front is really convenient.The home is minutes away from Roche Harbor (great fireworks)! Over all had a nice time. I will rent here again, but will bring
ear plugs next time.

Great house in a great location. It needs some attention to cleanliness and updating but overall pretty good. Less than one mile to Roche Harbor and a great walk. Very well equipped for all your needs.
Regarding cleanliness....we moved twin beds together and found the walls and space around beds to be dirty. The worst part was when we removed bedding per instructions, one pillow had blood stains on it....nasty!

The property was beautiful! Well maintained and immaculate. Stocked with everything we could possibly need to enjoy lovely meals with our perfect water view. The kids loved seeing the otter that came to fish with each high tide. When our week was over, none of us wanted to leave.

Fantastic home to stay in while we indulge in the great shrimp opener off Spieden Island. The home only lacks one thing which is a bigger freezer! The shrimping was off the charts and ran out of freezer space! Thank you for a great home to rent!

Good location near Roech Harbor. Neil Bay was wonderful for wildlife viewing of types including a bald eagle and local seal. Kids had fun digging for crabs and shells at low tide. House was a great set up for a family of four. My only complaints are that the master bed was hard as a rock and it would have fun to have a sandy beach area nearby.

Actually, it was our two daughters and their families who resided in the house, but they seemed to be happy with our choice. There were two "bad" issues: # 1, the lock box is dreadful. It is very difficult to open (when leaving I actually took the keys to your office, as I couldn't open the box after 6-10 tries, AND the instructions are poorly written. (I provided some words that might be easier, more explanatory). # 2, the heating system. The book of instructions only says the temperature to which the guest should adjust the system. It doesn't explain HOW to change the system. Our "tall" son-in-law, with 2 graduate degrees, finally got it working. I, with only one graduate degree, was unable to reverse the system to the way it was when we entered. When do you press "set," when "hold," when "run"?

Oh, yes! Garbage was strewn all around the wood shed. Either the previous tenants didn't secure the bungie strap or the bungie strap doesn't work. My husband, Ed Greub, picked up all the garbage on Friday night, 10/10/14. I have no idea what the animals did after our departure.

We didn't want to leave...

This was better than we expected. The house is perfect. Great location, comfy, well appointed kitchen, lots of towels, quiet neighborhood. The only complaint (and I'm reluctant to say so was the bed in the master bedroom. The mattress has seen better days.. And the pillows should be upgraded a bit). The only other complaint is that it's not ours!! We truly hope to return in the near future. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home.

Loved the location. Wood floors were not clean. Bedroom carpet had stains as well as sofa in bedroom. Dish washer soap dispenser didn't work. Had to run twice to get dishes clean. Also there is a leak under the kitchen stink.
Bathrooms were nice and clean as well as towels and linens.

We enjoyed this home beyond measure. The management provided excellent directions and gave instructions on how to get in - everything worked great. One of the electrical circuit breakers was tripped, but we reset it. But the cleaning staff had reported it to the Management and they sent someone there, just in case. All the bedrooms are large and comfy. The kitchen, dining room and family room had an open concept and we loved being able to talk while fixing meals. And it had a well equipped kitchen. The deck had a gas BBQ, table& chairs, lots of room. We had a friend swing by on their sailboat and used the dock - but you do have to be careful of low tides. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we would like to spend time here again.

Very darling home in the woods and on Neil bay. Lots of woodland creature - fox, deer and fisher off the dock. Old school vibe and not at all fancy if you are truly looking for a relaxed woodsy retreat. The only issue was that the house was dark - disappointing as the photos showed a bright home. As the crow flies, close to Roche but if you have a boat you must go all around Davidson head. All in all, a great week and home suites our families very well!

This house was a perfect spot to let the summer time begin! Great for relaxing, taking in the breathtaking views and enjoying an evening stroll. the kids loved the swing over the bay @ the end of the road. Adults...wine on the dock is quite heavenly! The walk was a bit far to Roche harbor to make with the family for boccee ball, dinner, or kayaking, but doable if you entice with an ice-cream ;)

Only issue was that the lock-bock was a little sticky so it took about 4 tries (by different people) before we were able to "crack it". Once opened the 1st time it was OK, so maybe just corrosion? Also, a little tricky to turn in the driveway (relocating a couple of large rocks would really help).

We stayed for a week with our 1-year-old and 3-year-old at this house. We had so much fun playing in the water near the house. We also brought a canoe and the calm waters of Neil Bay were perfect. Proximity to Roche Harbor was really nice. We never did make it there by walking (a little too far and a few too many hills for the kids - or for us to push the stroller!), but the drive was short and easy. Highly recommend this house for families!

We had a great week at this home, especially enjoyed the small town activities with our grandchildren on the 4th of July. Nearby lake great for boating & swimming with kids. The furniture and deck are tired; living rm end tables in the bedroom made it difficult to get in/out of bed. Nice ambience in the home, plenty of room, nice dock but minimal beach even at low tide.

The expansive space incorporating the living room, dining room and kitchen was perfect for family togetherness. The kitchen was so well-equiped, we found it very easy to prepare most meals in the house. The neighborhood was quiet and wonderful for taking
after dinner strolls. The view of peaceful water with the convenience of a private dock was perfect for kayaking. And yet, the close proximity of Roche Harbor offered us easy access to this historic harbor and its wonderful restaurants and shops.

We had a great time. The location was perfect and the weather cooperated. The house was lovely with lots of homey touches. The owners clearly thought about guest comfort when they outfitted the house, and the management company does an excellent job of
maintaining it. I would stay there again, and recommend to anyone with no concern. I wish all my vacation rentals could go this smoothly.

Neil Bay #8 offers the perfect vacation location - very private and serene, while close to Roche Harbor. Our boys loved exploring the shoreline and catching rock crabs at low tide, and casting off the dock to catch/release some interesting fish at high tide. One night, a sea otter even swam by our dock. The hardwood floors and open floor plan in the home created a comfortable living experience. I would definitely stay at this home again.
