Spacious bayfront home boasts easy beach access and a private sauna!
Looking to get away from it all with your friends and family? Look no further than this one-of-a-kind slice of Northern Washington beauty featured in Seattle Homes Magazine! Gorgeous waterfront views, nearby beach access, and modern comforts like a private sauna make this custom designer spacious home an incredible option for those looking for peace and quiet near the San Juan Islands without taking a ferry.
Just under seven miles south of Anacortes and a 75 minute drive from downtown Seattle, this home for six has the tranquility and solitude of being surrounded by nature with none of the drawbacks. Start your mornings right with a stay in the private sauna before you step onto the patio and take in a breathtaking view! View eagles and herons on no-bank sandy beach waterfront overlooking Skagit Island, Hope Island, and Deception Pass State Parks. Enjoy the evening admiring the driftwood wash ashore on the beach.
The atmosphere inside makes you feel even closer to nature, thanks to the wooden ceiling beams above you and ocean views from almost every room. Shining tile floors and sleek, modern furnishings let you have the best of both worlds. You even have internet access.
All that separates the living room from the 180 degree stunning ocean view outside is a wall of windows and glass doors, so feel free to step outside from time to time, or admire the view from indoors! A cushy couch, along with two comfy armchairs, let you stay nice and warm by the fireplace on rainy days. Have a movie night in with your family and friends thanks to the cable flatscreen TV!
There's a grill for barbecues right on the patio, but indoor meals are just as fun thanks to the high-end gourmet kitchen. Plenty of space, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances make cooking fun. Take in your food at the massive wooden table for 10 (along with breakfast bar seating for three) before loading your dishes into the dishwasher.
Three bedrooms and baths comfortably accommodate six guests, but the living room's couch - combined with a couch in a playroom by the study - let up to 7 guests total stay in this home. The master bedroom offers you and your special someone a luxurious king-size bed, along with armchairs, an en suite bath, and patio access. The remaining rooms have have one queen and one king bed and a shared full bathroom.
While the master bathroom offers ultimate comfort thanks to a window-side tub and walk-in double shower, each of the baths are bright, clean, and ready to accommodate. Dry off and put on some clothes fresh from the washer/dryer and get ready to explore!
Why not take advantage of your location and explore Fidalgo Island's natural wonders? Try your hand at fishing at Lake Campbell four miles north, and grill your catch for dinner back at home! Meanwhile, Deception Pass State Park lets you share breathtaking ocean views with the people that matters most, from vantage points by Deception Pass Bridge to the sands of Rosario Beach. It's all just four and a half miles away!
Of course, no visit to Fidalgo Island would be complete without exploring the charming town of Anacortes! Unique stores like The Business for vinyl records and restaurants like A'Town Bistro will make your visit memorable. There's also easy access to the ferry landing just four miles west of town. From here, some of the most beautiful destinations in the Pacific Northwest are right at your fingertips, from the world-famous San Juan Islands to the bustling Canadian city of Victoria (via a ferry stop in Sidney, B.C.).
Make your trip to northern Washington one you'll always remember. Place your reservation today!

A custom home with excellent views, high quality fittings and appliances. Convenient for Anacortes, quiet location but very steep driveway.
Sandy W.Sep 2019
location was terrific, home is well equipped and beautiful
Julie B.Aug 2019
Loved the layout of this home with its central gathering space and endless water views. The kitchen was well-equiped and the yard beautiful. The bathrooms very nice and clean. We saw deer and bunnies enjoying the fruit trees. The BBQ could use a refresh but everything else was lovely.
Joy P.Jul 2019
The house was beautiful and great for large dinners. The view was amazing from everywhere in the house and the back patio and fire pit were perfect day and night. The location was great-close enough to get to all the top spots but quiet and secluded.
Estela M.Jul 2019
House is beautiful as pictured, and quite comfortable with cozy beds, fluffy towels, well appointed kitchen, board games, outdoor fire pit. Gorgeous water views from expansive property and easy access to water. Internet is available if you want it. Loved that cell service was iffy at best. Made it so easy to stay blissfully unplugged. Only (non)issue was problem with outdoor grill. We couldn’t get it to light but aren’t used to using gas grills, so could have been due to our inexperience. Just cooked inside instead.

Have you ever been to one of those places where you feel just right? So right, you don’t want to leave? This was the one. The attention to architecture, patio layout, guest house and sauna along with lovely landscaping was also just right. We had text access to a person who made our text exchanges sound cheery as details were tended to efficiently. Plus we got a little Vacasa gift of cards and bottle opener. We would love to return again. Thank you.
Gaurav S.Apr 2019
Great place to hangout with family.
Laura R.Mar 2019
Beautiful view, well appointed home, wonderful grounds. FYI - The doors and some of the cupboards could use a little grease but the home and property seem well taken care of. Thanks for sharing your space with us.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Laura! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at this wonderful view home. We will pass your suggestions onto our management team so that we can make these simple improvements- we can't wait to have you back again!
Anne K.Feb 2019
Our family had a fabulous week -- despite the snow, overcast skies, and rain. The warm tile floors kept us cozy and the fully equipped kitchen kept us cooking and baking. The views of the bay, islands, eagles, and robins added to our enjoyment. Special shout out to the helpful caretakers who shoveled the driveway clear of snow. And of course, the sauna was especially nice during this cold February week. Our granddaughter said, "Can we live here?" We'll definitely come again.
Fiona P.Feb 2019
A beautiful property with stunning views. A wonderful place to find some peace and quiet.
Hannah M.Oct 2018
The house, settings and grounds are all incredible. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend.
Melinda S.Sep 2018
House was great. And couldn’t beat the view. Would have been nice to have more outdoor seating.
Susan M.Sep 2018
Beautiful view and so peaceful. Easy to find but you feel you are in the woods. Lots to do and see in the area. Kitchen well equipped.
Judith K.Aug 2018
The house and location were terrific. There were a few bumps at the start. The house had not been cleaned when we checked in, and we had no hot water. Once we cut beyond that rough start, it was smooth sailing.
Nicole L.Jul 2018
Great views, beautiful location, comfortable and welcoming house.
Vickie G.Jul 2018
Wonderful kitchen and beautiful view. Plenty of room inside the house and even outdoor with fire pit that we sat around every night after gathering driftwood off the beach. The big grassy area between the house and the beach was perfect for bocce ball. Also, we felt we had the beach to ourselves. I don't think we saw anyone while we were there.
Kelsey H.Jul 2018
We really enjoyed our stay at this Fidalgo beach home. The home was beautiful and well kept. The yard was perfect for lawn games, and we were pleased to have a fire pit for once the sun went down. Look forward to visiting again.
Mae N.Jul 2018
Wonderful getaway for our family during the Fourth of July week. Gorgeous setting and so close to Anacortes if needed.
Clarence C.Jul 2018
I don't think it's normal but we saw 2 bald eagles, 2 deer, and saw orcas during our stay. The house was really nice.
Sara L.Jun 2018
House was beautiful! Had a great stay. Although, it was asked that we start a load of laundry and dishes upon leaving but there wasn’t detergent for either. Otherwise, great property
Alisa T.Jun 2018
Love the property. Comfortable spacious beautiful views. We had rented the house only knowing that there was an available guest house. The first day/ night was great until the cleaners showed up the next day to prepare the guest house for renters. It was disruptive to our relaxation seeing people walking across the property back and forth and the renters also “sharing” the property which should have been private. Minor but not enough glasses.
We apologize if our guest was unaware the outdoor space is shared between the two units. We have added this clarification to the home description. Thank you!
Alan R.Jun 2018
We had a lovely stay at this very beautiful home. The windows in the master bedroom, kitchen and family room allow stunning views of the beautifully landscaped back yard and beach. We were visited by deer, rabbits and an Eagle. This is a wonderful property.
Laura T.May 2018
Gorgeous views and well maintained grounds come as a package with this lovely 3 bedroom l shaped beach house. We have a toddler and he was happy to play in the grass, on the beach, or indoors. We've stayed both in the guest house and the main house and I have to say we probably prefer the guest house by a smidgen. There was no wine bottle opener when we went so visitors bring your own :)
Sarah B.Apr 2018
Stunning view to wake up to every morning! Has a amazingly stock kitchen with everything you could need. Parking is kind of hard if you have a larger vehicle but the property and view was well worth it!

We loved the location of this home. We were able to explore Anacortes, Oak Harbor, and La Conner on our trip as the home is only about 20 minute drive to each. We also went to Deception Pass State Park. Our kids loved playing on the beach at the home. It has a great beach and yard. With all the finishes in the home being so nice, the only thing we were disappointed in were the beds. They were platform style beds, low to the ground and without a box spring. We have sore backs from just two nights there unfortunately. There is also another smaller home on the property that is rented separately. There was another family staying there so the yard and the beach are shared with those renters and that took away from the privacy that we expected.
Randy M.Apr 2018
The pictures don't tell the whole story. Everything was great!. Just as described.
Anita R.Apr 2018
Lovely view, wonderful bird viewing. Lots to do close by the location.
Kristen M.Feb 2018
Nice place to stay, right on the water! Beautiful kitchen and lots of space.
Cheryl C.Jan 2018
This is the second year we have stayed at this property and we love it. The house is well laid out in an L form with the 3 bedrooms and baths down a hallway on the short side, giving each of us quiet and good spaces to retire to for rest. The long side of the L is the well appointed kitchen and dining area which is designed for cooking as a group or socializing (and support) as someone takes charge of the menu. The living room is open and easy for conversation or reading and the open concept of this part of the house really support socializing. We used the little media room, which has internet and cable and it would be a great room for adults and kids on a rainy day, which we had. We've come in January both times and the house has heated floors and despite the floor to ceiling windows is quite toasty and its wonderful to watch the weather from almost any room in the house. The master bedroom is windows on two side and has a wonderful view and a great master bath. We didn't use the sauna, but it is there for guests. Both visits there were guests in the other VACASCA house on this very property, architecturally designed to be compatible with the 3 bedroom, and we didn't know the other guests were there except for their car. This is to say that the property is large. I think it would be another great experience to rent in the summer when the outdoor patio and the beach would add another aspect to the stay.
Martin E.Nov 2017
My fiance and I had a great stay there. Great view wonderful home. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
JERRIE M.Oct 2017
This home is so wonderful. you feel as though you can just relax and enjoy the afternoon away. No worries about anything. The scene is the best. There was deer in the yard playing, a rabbit visiting and many geese down on the beach area. We truly enjoyed our beach getaway. Thanks for giving us a break from the daily monotony.
Maida C.Sep 2017
Great house, very well stocked. Pristine lot with fabulous waterfront. Quiet. Great place to recharge!
Phil S.Sep 2017
Very good experience!

Hello My husband wants to know who is the architect. Is he/she local? Marge
Aditya A.Jul 2017
This really is an incredible house. We went with one other family, so totaled 4 adults and 3 children. The kids had a blast - the property is amazing with an expansive field and beach access and deer that come up right to the property. The kids pretty much played outside the whole time, while we cooked food and enjoyed some cocktails overlooking the amazing view.
The house had some very minor updates needed (blinds, broken drawer, fire alarms), but nothing that spoiled the experience. In fact, the house is really well appointed with great appliances, utensils and an overall kitchen that is a joy to cook in. The other family staying with us was family from the East Coast and they were stunned. Great spot!
The parts for the custom blinds have arrived and will be installed by the end of the month. The smoke detector batteries have been replaced, and the drawer has been repaired. We are glad to see this guest enjoyed their stay!
Peter S.Jul 2017
We arrived to this beautiful home a little after checkin and it was obvious the cleaning crew had never come. After speaking to four different customer service representative's the cleaning crew finally came at 11 PM. This might be a one off case, but I feel it necessary to explain so that future guests know what to experience from management. Besides that, the home is very beautiful and in a amazing location. The hot water is very good and we very much enjoyed the fire pit though we had to go out and get our own wood. On our second night the fire alarms beeped the entire time, which was quite annoying. After inspecting them we found they were cheap fire alarms that were being set off by simple steam from the bathrooms. Overall, I recommend staying at this home but warn you that there will be surprises. It's location is very stunning.
We sincerely apologize for this mix-up and want to assure our guests that missed cleans such as this are very rare. We are sorry that it took such a long time to address in this case as well. We appreciate the guest's patience in the matter. Thank you!
Carolyn P.Jul 2017
What we loved most about this property is the grounds and the view. The grounds are lovely and well maintained as the view is beautiful and peaceful. Loved watching rabbits and birds feasting on the grounds as well as a doe and her fawns fed on leaves on the property next door. The home is very nice and the kitchen is well stocked. There are some maintenance issues that need to be dealt with to have a 5 star rating.
Cameron F.Jun 2017
The house was perfectly clean and looked as good as it does in the photos!
We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this house if you're looking for a place right on the water with lots of space and an amazing kitchen!
Jenna B.May 2017
Spent 3 nights here with our 5 year old son. He had fun exploring the beach, while we sat and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The house was fabulous.
Jil P.May 2017
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house and setting.
There is a long sandy beach right out front to enjoy.
It is easy to travel to Anacortes, La Conner, and Whidbey Island from this location.
Everything was top quality and lovely! I would like to return here for another vacation.
The only issue we had was the see through fireplace became smoky after it burned awhile.
Judy And Walt G.Apr 2017
Great views of the the bay. Very comfortable
Alexa M.Apr 2017
Great house for groups. Wonderful views from most rooms. Close enough to town. We didn't want to leave.
Sierra V.Apr 2017
The view made it worth it. Property was well maintained and super comfy!
Domenica R.Apr 2017
Beautiful view, close to Deception Pass and Anacortes. Comfortable beds and very relaxed check-out. Perfect spot for a family get-together. Lots to explore on the beach (depending on the tide). Sauna and deep soaking tub were a lovely bonus!
Lisa L.Mar 2017
The views from this beautiful home make you feel like you're floating on the water! Rain or shine you will enjoy a unique perspective of the water and surrounding islands. The home itself is spacious and warm, with colorful decor. The kitchen has all the equipment you'll need if you're cooking and although we didn't grill outdoors, it has all that too. The beachfront is nice to walk along and has plenty of colorful rocks if you are a collector. This home is situated conveniently to explore Anacortes, La Connor and access to the San Juan Islands. We loved it!
Miriam H.Mar 2017
I visited this home with a few friends and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The views from the home are stunning and the layout of the home is great. We enjoyed exploring the beach and getting out into Anacortes. One highlight was during an attempt to find an ice cream parlor, we stumbled upon Lopez Island Creamery which gave us free pints of ice cream! One thing to note is that if you visit with the maximum 8 people, someone will need to sleep on the couch (there are 3 beds). We will definitely be planning on coming back to visit again!
Todd W.Feb 2017
Perfect location with alot to do. The house was beautiful with a gourmet kitchen. House was right on the water. Had a great time, we will be back!
Jason B.Feb 2017
Loved my stay at this gorgeous home. Modern but cozy spaces with tons of light and amazing views. Staying here during a stretch of wintry weather was a treat - the fireplace and the sauna were perfect for warming up. I hope to return with my family during the summer to take advantage of the great outdoor space and comfortable indoor spaces.
Brandon M.Jan 2017
We show much enjoyed the morning drinking coffee and watching the sun rise! Such a beautiful area.
Jenelle M.Jan 2017
This is going to be a very hard place to top in the future. It was an amazing vacation rental. We will be back for sure! Thanks!
Brad T.Jan 2017
We spent New Years here with the kids. The views were great and we loved the kitchen area for family meals and board games
JERRIE M.Nov 2016
This is a lovely home. Very comfortable and relaxing. Will definitely book this again.
Stanyslav M.Nov 2016
The cabin it self has a very modern style and has a lot of windows, giving it a ton of natural light. It has heated floors which is pretty awesome. Top quality appliances and double oven. Master bedroom and bathroom has prime views on the water which makes it so awesome to wake up to. Superb location, less than 10 min to deception pass.
Janell K.Nov 2016
This is the place to visit if you just want to relax! We barely left the house! The gourmet kitchen was a dream and the beds were comfortable, if a bit squeaky. Views of the water entertained us and the wood burning fireplace gave warmth and ambiance. We did hope for more of a walkable beach but that could have been due to weird tide timing. The den off the living room was acceptable for a kid's sleeping space but it is the only place there is a television, and no DVD player. We had planned on exploring Deception Pass and Mt. Erie but the typical rainy Washington weather called for food, games, cozy fires and good company!
