Description of the San Juan Islands vacation home rental

Join us in a spectacular corner of Washington State, and make your next family getaway an extraordinary beachfront home . . . one that offers a stunning view of the waters of Hale's Passage, the Bellingham city lights twinkling in the distance at night, and the magic of a sunrise over majestic Mount Baker to the east.

This upscale and dramatic residence offers you a private hot tub, wood-burning fireplace, heated floors, fully equipped kitchen, and fine linens, including down comforters and pillows. Surround yourself in luxury, and the knowledge that we pride ourselves in providing the HIGHEST STANDARDS IN CLEANLINESS and tasteful furnishings. Sound System, Cable TV, DVD player and free long distance phone service will add to the feeling that you have really found your "home away from home."

An EXAMPLE OF 5 ISLAND WATERFRONT HOMES. Please ASK US FOR DETAILS on your OTHER CHOICES!

Lummi Island, a true secret of the San Juan's, is a tranquil and friendly community accessed by the "Whatcom Chief," a small, twenty-car ferry that makes the eight minute crossing to the mainland daily from early morning to midnight. The ACCESSIBLE San Juan Island--ONLY 8 MINUTES BY VEHICLE FERRY! The mainland ferry dock is less than two hours from the cosmopolitan cities of Vancouver, British Columbia and Seattle, and is only about twenty-five minutes from Bellingham, a small, waterfront city very reminiscent of a "mini-San Francisco."

The pristine beauty of sea and mountains blends with our temperate, year- round climate to make our island the perfect place to create memories for a lifetime. MANY POSSIBLE DAY TRIPS! Enjoy a day of culture and shopping in the big city, an adventure through local waters in search of Orca whales, a trip along world famous Chuckanut Drive, or a day of hiking in the mountains---each is an easy day trip ---and you will arrive back at your "home port" on the island in time to marvel at the drama of the northwest sun slowly disappearing behind the silhouette of the magnificent San Juan Archipelago in the distance.

So exquisite, you won't want to leave. I didn't.

The allure of this charming home is evident the moment you drive up to it. I had to take a minute to drink in the view before even getting out of the car. I can honestly say that this is the first time I rented a vacation home where I truly didn't have to bring the usual extras. I even felt comfortable using the spices and olive oils as they were fresh and plentiful. The attention to detail was impeccable! The owners of this home truly take care of their guests. Although our family's objective was to "disconnect to reconnect", this home is wired for everything you may need. The little store down the road doesn't have much, but does have what you need most of the time and its employees were very nice island folk! And that goes the same for the two cafe's on the island too. Delicious and Friendly. Should you happen to get island fever while you are there, the easy peasy ferry system makes it a nice quick trip to buzz over to the mainland to find more things to do. I however, was perfectly content cozied up by the fire with my book, a glass of wine or cup of tea, and those distracting views that are absolutely stunning, especially in the early morning hours! Be warned that you will have chores when you stay here however, as it will be your duty to feed the local deer who pretty much come to the sliding glass doors to say that they are ready for their dinner, but don't worry, the owners have thought of that too, and have special deer food provided for you to put in their own food bowls located in the yard. :) This is no doubt that I will return with my family to this home for future escapes. We have nothing but love for the Lummi way of life. Thank you so much for allowing my family much needed decompression time and the chance to exhale for a little while! This trip left a warm wonderful impression for all of us. Thank you!

It's been two years since we last visited. We didn't know if we could ever mach the wonderful experience we had before, but your beautiful home and property (and the gorgeous weather) helped make this a very special Mothers' day weekend! The deer visited daily and that was a real treat. We explored the beach with our dogs, enjoyed the hot tub each night, read out in the sun and played card games around the kitchen table. The bonus is our teenagers are as happy here as we are. Thank you for sharing your home, we look forward visiting again! Blessings,

My best friend and I came to Beachwood with my dog to spend a couple days, and each one of us had an incredible time. The property is beautiful, with nice landscaping. Lots of places to explore, and an easy walk down to the beach. The home is cozy and comfortable. One of the best treats of our visit was the daily visits from the deer. We highly recommend this lovely and easy to get to vacation site.

We had an amazing time here. There was such a breath taking view! We loved feeding the deers and the hot tub! The sunset Beach here is so beautiful. Rock (the dog) loved swimming there! The bikes were so much fun to ride. My Dad and I attempting to ride the two person bike, was an adventure. Lastly the campfire was amazing. Roasting marsh-mellows and hot dogs was great! The house is beautiful and we had a great family time doing games and puzzles!

OMG! Paradise!!! We had a wonderful time here at Beachwood on Lummi Island. Thank you to Gudrun & Wayne for their excellent care and management of this amazing "retreat from city life." We were in awe of how many deer come to the gardens. They are beautiful creatures, and a doe w/ two fawns, too. Bald eagles, great blue heron, a mourning dove, nuthatches, towhees and pine siskins galore. Oh, and the stellar jays and seagulls! Bird watching was superb! Thank you again - we look forward to our next visit!

The house and view are absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed the various wildlife, soaking in the hot tub and frolicking with the purple starfish and stand crabs. Using the cone valve as a fire-pit was a genius idea and we made smores every-night. We could definitely get used to Island life.

Beyond our expectations. Everything was so perfect. Four bucks fed nearby while does and fawns lingered on the lawn. Mt Baker was visible every day and the beds were entirely comfortable. We saw the Quickdraw String Band at the cookoff on Saturday. I wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent setting for a relaxing vacation.

So relaxed I think it's August instead of July. Thank you for a wonderful week. The house is superb - so comfortable and well appointed and the view is spectacular.

We all had an absolutely wonderful vacation, thank you so much for making your lovely home available. My boys are already begging to come back! We had a great time sitting around the fire at night and watching the wild (and not so wild!) life around the yard and down at the beach. Rob and I got in miles and miles of riding our tandem around Lummi and the Bellingham area. Now its back to Iowa and corn and wind and humidity!

June 2013

We loved it. The house is so beautiful and cozy. We loved spending evenings outside around the fire pit and watching the deer. It was fun biking around the island. One day we went Kayaking with Moon Dance. Charmin was an excellent guide. We left from Larrabee State Park. the day started out overcast and windy but by lunch time it was sunny and beautiful. We stopped at Barleans in Bellingham several times to get seafood for dinner. The only we didn't like was the Willows. It was extremely expensive for little tastings! The food was good but not worth $425 for two! We are leaving today and really wish we had a couple more days to enjoy the beautiful place! Thanks so much!

1st Day: it is currently 5:47 pm and we arrived at approximately 5:00. As soon as we got here, I jumped in the tub with my parents. It was lovely!

2nd Day: Just enjoyed a magnificent day. Woke up early in search of dear; But, unfortunately we had no luck. Instead, I enjoyed the bikes and the swing. I walked all the paths (a definite must) and then down to the beach. We toured the island in our car. After poor weather arrived we laughed while playing canasta and enjoying treats. Thank you this really is luxurious!

Next Day: Thank you! We had a lovely time the view was amazing, and your house welcoming.

Thank you!

(Friday) Immediately, this house brings a calm to a stressful life and back memories of wonderful times. Surrounded by loved ones, it is times like these that truly allow you to appreciate the best moments in life.

(Saturday) Today is my birthday! What I thought was going to be low key, non-eventful birthday has turned into a soul warming enriching experience. We rode the bicycles to the Farmer's Market. Although we hoped for more vendors, we found exactly what we needed. We walked to the water, laid in the sun, read novels, played cards and had a wonderful day. I feel spoiled to witness such beauty on my birthday. More importantly, I am learning to calm down, let go and not seat the small stuff... comes with wisdom.

(Sunday) Today is my mother's birthday. Another beautiful day although a little overcast. This has been a truly beautiful weekend filled with love, laughter and peace. A much needed break from the stresses of life.

We leave the Beachwood tomorrow. Thank you for a lovely stay!

This was a wonderful place to have our family together. We loved the hot tub, the excellent furnishings, the swing on the edge of the property, the beach, and walks to the store and restaurant. We had a wonderfully clear weather week where we saw Mount Baker every day. We had a romantic dinner at the Willows and several at the Oyster Bar. The fire-pit was great and the property is beautifully landscaped. A most relaxing 12 days here. We will be back!

What a delight taking our first step on to the property. The Garden of Eden, so welcoming and so beautiful. We loved watching the wind dance with the flowers and trees.

The house is so complete with beauty and charm! The flower arrangement was a welcome touch. The beds were so inviting.

We were eating dinner outside gazing on the beauty of Mt. Baker when a buck came up the stairs of the garden. What a surprise!

This place brought Psalm 23 to mind. What a blessing to stay in your home.

Many thanks,

We are a family of five from Houston Texas. This has been a very special Family vacation for us. We logged in many hours researching where we would go this year and it most definitely paid off! We had some unexpected "challenges" this week but we got thru them, as a family in this beautiful paradise. Every morning and night the deer came to visit (we fed them very well!). We had campfires every evening, we explored, we played games (we even left one called Apple to Apples for Beachwood visitors to enjoy). Two fishing trips were canceled but we were able to go white water rafting in Gold Bar, we rode bikes, we drove to Whatcom Falls, drove to Deception Pass Park (saw Eagles), had the Best breakfast in Bellingham at Mount Bakery (Benedict and Crepes!), drove Chuckanut scenic route, Catamaran sunset ride... Fireworks every night??!! Last night lightening "storm" was spectacular! As I write this journal four of our deer Friends are enjoying breakfast!!!!

We feel truly blessed to have had this time in this special place. We created memories that will last a lifetime!

We spent two weeks here, so we got very comfortable with Lummi Island and the Beachhouse. The weather has been typical late spring--50's and 60's with some sun breaks. We visited family and friends in Bellingham and Anacortes. We hiked the 3.4 mile ridge hike up to the overlook (the trail-head is just down the street). The view of the San Juans is stunning--worth the 20% grade. We biked around the 7-mile loop twice--saw bald eagles, seals, many large barges, the small cemetery. It's pretty easy to get back and forth on the ferry (once we adjusted our thinking), but the cost mounts up. We spent a day in Vancouver, stopped in Fairhaven, etc. From the house, we saw a zillion deer, mountain pigeons, etc. (thank goodness for the bird book). This was a lovely peaceful time.

We came to celebrate our 30th birthdays which we will have in August this year. We have been friends for more than ten years, and we all share the same birthday week. The house was beautiful and cozy. The view was incredible. We saw many deer, a raccoon and lovely hummingbirds. We also spent time collecting mussels on the beach and cooked them as part of our seafood feast. This weekend was certainly a blessing, and a time away to celebrate friendships, birthdays, and the past and future. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Was So Great, We Stayed An Extra Night!

Feb 2012

Had a terrific time to celebrate my best friend's 40th birthday! I have a high stress job, and every now and then I feel the need to get away, so this was a perfect thing for all of us. It was very comfortable for me and my friend's family. We appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was compared to other places we've been. The kids enjoyed the trucks to play with outside and we had a couple evenings around the fire outside while we drank tea. Even though it was rainy much of the time we were there, getting away for a few days was a great way to relax. We baked cookies, a cake, and had some gourmet meals while we were there. The scenary was great and the grounds were well taken care of. What was the icing on the cake was the opportunity to hand feed a herd (yes and entire herd) of deer!! It was such a magical moment that I will probably never forget it. My only recommendation is to be careful with the banisters. We had to warn the kids that they weren't very secure. My friend and I are thinking about coming back for a girlfriend retreat with a few others sometime. Communication with the owner was fantastic and much appreciated. In fact, she was extremely kind when my friend forgot her soup pot and it magically appeared on her doorstep one day. That spoke volumes to us and was a huge blessing. We'll definitely call on her again in the future for another reservation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The outdoor fire and feeding the deer were the BEST! I was fascinated with the flooring inside the house. I had never seen stone floor like that on the INSIDE of a home. We just wish we could have stayed a whole week. (isn't that what everyone says? Vacation is never long enough!)

Thank you for providing the most wonderful house and setting for a delightful 50th birthday weekend celebration! One day was gloriously sunny with Mt Baker in full view and featuring a snow cap; the next was overcast and so we cuddled inside.

The hike up the Baker trail (just down the road a bit on your right) was quite a workout but worth the effort. We travel to the San Juans frequently from our home in Port Townsend but the home and setting here will be a wonderful memory.

Grilled up lots of wonderful food including fresh caught whole side of Halibut from Barlean's - the nicest, most helpful people we met!

People on the island were all very friendly-- nice bonus. :)

Enjoyed our stay. Our favorite days were the ones we stand on the Island. Enjoyed the "Common Area". Saw an Eagle sitting in the tree above the swing! Also enjoyed workshop and the local church. The people here are delightful. We did have some trouble sleeping... no used to the long days and short nights.

Thank you sharing you Island with us.

After Ralph and Zach rode their bikes over 1000 miles from Modesto to the Northwest Indian College, they were ready for a little R&R. Thank you for the wonderful stay. Your Lummi Island house is beautiful and it was the perfect place for Ralph and family to relax after the incredible emotions of meeting his Lummi Family after being adopted out at birth. They are an incredible tribe and we are excited to connect with new family. We are proud of the noble gesture of raising over $17,000 for a scholarship fund in the name of his deceased birth mother Kristin. The view is unforgettable.

Love, Michele, Ralph and Family

I was unprepared for how incredibly beautiful this place is... the photos did not do it justice!

The home and grounds are so beautiful. Lummi is now our favorite island. It is so peaceful and everyone we met was so happy and friendly.

We will be back for annual trips!

We spent a bit of time in Bellingham searching for eye masks after our first morning. :) z-z-z-z Thank you SO much for allow our pug to stay here. It was fun watching her navigate around the grates at the front doors.

THANK YOU!!!

What a wonderful stay. Thank you for all the help in making our honeymoon, vow renewal so very special. The house was amazing as were the grounds! My husband the firefighter enjoyed the many chances to have a fire in the fireplace and firepits! Our wedding was so beautiful and there were so many places for great pictures. We look forward to coming back again. We already have a family trip planned.

We had a wonderful Spring break. Relaxing and restful. Enjoyed hiking Baker Preserve and relaxing in the hot tub afterward.

The house and gardens very beautifully and tastefully decorated. We wanted somewhere with a lovely view and we had wonderful views from every room! Everything was excellent!

The house was beautiful. I loved the deer and it was nice to see them on my first day here! The rooms were exquisite and the chairs were really comfy too.

Lovely, peaceful and oh, so picturesque. We were delighted by the view in all weather; the daily bald eagle fly-bys, deer in the evening and such understated plantings in the terraces. Very nicely done. We will be back, I'm sure

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. This is the kind of place that is great for unplugging from the crazy pace of city life. We needed this break! The grounds are fabulous and the scenery is unmatched. We hope to be back again.

Thanks.

This place is very cool. It was very fun to feed the deer. The views are amazing at night. It was fun going to the waters edge. Everything is great.

What a beautiful home you have! Thank you for sharing it with us. The deer were a treat to have around. We look forward to seeing them every day. It is so quiet and peaceful and . The only complaint is that it was hot here. We are from Sacramento and we were trying to escape the heat.

This place is truly the reflection of Gudrun and Wayne's love of nature and interior design. Everywhere I looked there was something beautiful to discover. Thank you both for sharing!

We were here during record high temperatures in the area. There was always a cool spot on the yard or house. What a treat to be here during berry season.

It was great. I don't know where to start. I guess I'll start with the deer. I loved them. I gave them all names. The nicest deer was Prince. The rest are King, Ryan, Phillip, Andrew, Juliet and Jane. thides were great. We saw lots of starfish, small and big wing crabs. The hot tub was so cool!! The beds were so comfy and soft. The deers like birdseed and apples from the tree, so don't use it all in one day. There is a swing in the commons. face toward the ocean not the other way. I loved making smores.

Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous home with us! It was a refreshing break from everyday life that my family and I needed desperately. When we first arrived, we ran around the house and gardens squeeling with delight as we discovered the beautiful views and the trails and nooks and crannies of the grounds. I had never been to the San Juan Islands before this vacation and I love it! I know that as soon as we leave I'll be itching to come back. I had never seen a bald Eagle before or fed Deer and I know that these previously untried experiences will stay with me for the rest of my life. The deer were so sweet and let us pet them. I had no idea their antlers were so soft! We roamed the beach at low tide and my little brother and I saw tons of starfish and crabs.

Also, this past week that we were here, I turned 18! I can't think of a better place to spend my 18th birthday. The Beachwood has just been absolutely awesome and we can't wait to come back!!

What an amazing place to stay! We made a fire and played guitar around it, and it was so much fun! We also biked around the island each day. It's simply beautiful here. Each day here there seemed to be a new group of wildlife greeting us; including deer, raccoons, bunnies, birds and the list could go on.

Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!
