Open-Concept Waterfront Getaway with Stunning Views of the Salish Sea and WiFi

Experience a beautiful Pacific Northwest island adventure when you escape to this incredibly positioned Anacortes vacation rental! Offering a wonderful open-concept living space, majestic waterfront views, and plenty of room for eight guests, this four-bedroom home is perfect for a family reunion, a peaceful getaway with friends, or even a small company retreat.

Facing southward toward the stunning Olympic Mountains, this home provides wondrous mountain views on clear days. But even when it's cloudy, you'll still be treated to gorgeous views of the sparkling Salish Sea, framed by the rugged, evergreen-lined Fidalgo Island.

You won't believe your eyes when you first gaze out the floor-to-ceiling living room windows. Spacious and lovely, this room is where you'll be tempted to spend all of your vacation, settled on one of two plush couches, reading a book, or watching a movie on the TV and Blu-ray player (with Netflix streaming for guests who have their own account). A gas fireplace lends a cozy warmth on chilly evenings. For any aspiring astronomers in the group, a telescope is set up by the window so you can gaze at the stars, or even just look out at the beautiful water.

Walk into the adjacent, incredibly well organized kitchen, where you'll be greeted by bright red walls, every culinary tool you could want or need, and appliances that include a refrigerator, a stove, an oven, a microwave, and a coffee maker. Don't worry about washing your dishes by hand, because a dishwasher makes everything easy. There's even a waffle iron for those lazy weekend mornings.

Sit around the eight-person dining room table and chat about your day while you eat a delicious meal. The dining room has a chandelier, great wall art, and access to the deck via a sliding glass door. There are even Apple Airport speakers throughout the downstairs (with detailed instructions on how to use them), so plug your phone in and enjoy some music alongside your meal.

This wonderful home sleeps up to eight guests. There are three bedrooms with a queen-size bed apiece, and one bedroom with a queen and two twins. Two-and-a-half bathrooms, complete with hair dryers, will keep everyone comfortable, refreshed, and looking their best! This home also has WiFi for your convenience.

Step out through the sliding glass doors to your very own private deck overlooking the water and sit around the idyllic wooden picnic bench, sipping tea and talking about what you're going to do with the beautiful day ahead of you. In the evening, have someone in your group cook up some burgers on the outdoor grill on the patio as you stand by the railing and watch the beautiful colors of the sunset reflect over the water.

There is plenty to do in the nearby town of Anacortes (about 14 miles away), from shopping to dining to as many outdoor adventures as you can imagine. You also will be ideally located to visit Deception Pass State Park (only three miles away), where 4,134 acres of ancient forest will bring you back in time. Go hiking on 38 miles of lovely trails for a variety of skill levels, or simply marvel at the stunning view from Deception Pass Bridge.

This wonderful home also puts aspiring international travelers in a perfect position to have a Canadian adventure. From Anacortes, you can hop straight on the ferry to Sidney, British Columbia. From there, it's only a 16-mile drive to the beautiful city of Victoria, where you can have high tea at the Empress Hotel or visit the famously blooming Butchart Gardens.

Whether you go on a Canadian day trip or mostly enjoy beautiful views of the Salish Sea from home, there's a definite chance you're going to fall in love with this San Juan Island vacation rental and never, ever want to leave.

We loved the magnificent view and the clean, spacious house. Three couples were all very comfortable here! We didn’t want to leave.
Carmen J. Jun 2021
Lovely home that is outfitted for everything - comfort, cooking and more.
Joe G. Apr 2021
The house layout is odd, but the view is absolutely breathtaking.
Kaye O. Apr 2021
This little slice of heaven provided a peaceful place to escape for a few days with spectacular views in all directions. The house was spotless and the VACASA management team kept us well informed every step of the way. Thank you for such an amazing stay!
Kalli N. Oct 2020
The house was beautiful, and had everything we needed. the view was breathtaking. We seen bald eagles, and harbor porpoise, minky whales, deer, see otters and seals. All at the house. We will be retuning, thank you for sharing your home with us.
Nancy B. Oct 2020
This house is unbelievable! The views are breath taking. Each evening the sunsets were better than the night before.
The house has everything you need. The kitchen was better equipped than mine at home. Right down to an electric grille to do pancakes and French toast on!
Beds were very comfortable. House is in a great location as there are many things to do and see fairly close!
Jon S. Sep 2020
I try to make sure and stay at the seascape every year! This is a great place!
Janine W. Aug 2020
What we loved about this place was the location and the way the house took full advantage of the western view. You walk in and just amazed at the wrap around view, and then the sunsets every night!

The kitchen was incredibly organized and had everything you needed, including labeling so you knew where to find things and where to put them back.
The front room was open concept so you have these impressive windows, and had these great little social spots (watch TV at night, chairs right up front to see nature, the couches for socializing (or taking a nap), the quick table to eat dinner and not miss the sunset etc. We also worked a few days while there, and the large dining table worked as a work space during the day.

It was very quiet there, and was what we were looking for to recharge. The neighborhood was friendly when walking or driving to the market, and appreciated the support for equality, and human rights in the yard signs of the neighbors.

We also enjoyed watching the quail, and the baby quail running across the grasses (they blend in so it was really hard to spot them).

The outdoor picnic table wasn't not great for sitting much more than a quick meal if you like eating outdoor, but I would recommend having an option that is more shaded for those that have more sun sensitivity, maybe with more comfortable seating.

I would highly recommend this vacation home especially if you enjoy looking at incredible water views and sunsets.

We loved it
Fay C. Jul 2020
Came here for a family get away and expectations were exceeded. The posted pictures do not do the panoramic views justice. Everything we could have possibly needed, from cooking to toiletry supplies, were provided. Great location for hiking and boating!
Carol E. Jul 2020
The house is wonderful. Windows, space, views galore. Loved the proximity to Deception Pass State Park.
Daniel R. May 2020
This house was incredible. Seeping views of the sound throughout. Feels like you're perched right over the water.
Every where you look, you see beautiful views.
Spent the weekend watching eagles, seals, porpoises and other wild life from the living room and kitchen.
Andrew M. Feb 2020
Lots of room, great for families, exceptional view.
dietrich a. Dec 2019
Secluded, but 15 mins from stores and restaurants. Unbelievable nature watching. Kitchen has pretty much everything you'll need, even for major cooking projects. The shared spaces were plentiful - somewhere for everyone to hang out. Bedrooms are decent sized, and have windows, etc. Great spot, would stay again.
Jon S. Sep 2019
We stay here every year and look forward to it every year! The place has almost a 360 view. Always clean! Can't say enough positives!
Michael D. Sep 2019
Panoramic views and comfy for 7 as was our group size. Well furnished, clean, good communications. We were close enough to town where we attended a wedding. Also close enough to other venues for other activities including a day trip to Canada...Thank you!!
Johnna C. Aug 2019
Clean and nicely furnished. View and surrounding wildlife were amazing
John A. Aug 2019
Clean easy to use
Marlene H. Aug 2019
Everything was perfect. The house is beautifully provisioned. The scenery and setting were rcwuidiye’
Bradley N. Jul 2019
The pictures don't begin to describe the beauty of this home. Views are breathtaking and the home was clean as a whistle. Also like how things are organized to make living there easy (especially the labelling of the kitchen drawers/cabinets as to their contents). Great location, too.
Amy T. Jun 2019
Loved looking out over the water. Wonderful stay.
Maria W. Jun 2019
Our family loved the Seascape Panorama House! The home was well equipped, and very organized! The location is close to many outdoor adventures. The views from inside this home are spectacular! I can't imagine asking for anything more!
AMESHEER L. Apr 2019
I cannot say enough how the beautiful water view did wonders for my spirit. The view of the water was amazing! The home was clean, functional and equipped with EVERYTHING! Thank you for labeling the drawers (so organized), the layout was great, and it felt like home away from home.
Deanna S. Apr 2019
Beautiful home with lots of windows to enjoy the view. They had everything you could possibly want or need. We will go there again.
Jagdeep T. Jan 2019
Had a very pleasant stay.
Kimberly F. Nov 2018
We had plenty of space and kitchen items. We saw dolphins, seals, sea lions, bald eagles and several other birds. Enough spaces that all could have private time.
Jon S. Oct 2018
Bet place I have found to rent on the coast!
Julie H. Aug 2018
On the clear days the views of the water, marine life and sunsets are phenomenal. The negatives were that it felt a bit dated in terms of furnishings and bathrooms, and it wasn't a cozy "curl up with a book" atmosphere due to tile throughout. Parents of young children will need to keep an eye out at all times outdoors due to cliff.
We however had 7 adults from 19 to 87 yrs and really enjoyed the property. There was a huge dining room table where we played board games. We took many excursions to the San Juan Islands, Deception Pass Park, and a whale watching tour that dis not dissapoint. Anacortes has some grear gastro pubs and cocktail bars. Cute town. This was a good location to use as HQ.
Don B. Jul 2018
Three families met for a long weekend. The views are absolutely stunning! Everything we needed was provided. We couldn’t have been more pleased. We will definitely book again!
christin and bjorn c. Jun 2018
I cannot say enough good things about this property. Perfectly clean and prepared when we arrived at 4:00. The property manager answered her phone instantly when we called to confirm. The lock is a cinch to figure out. The four separate bedrooms allowed our family of six such privacy and comfort (important with three teenagers and a twenty-something). There are two separate bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and second with three beds (two twins and a double); there are two separate bedrooms downstairs, each with a queen bed. Our boys were able to sleep late in their separate bedrooms and our daughters talked late into the night in their large upstairs room (with three beds!) Mom could putter around the kitchen and have my tea in the big window room with no fear of waking anyone up. My husband and I slept in the large bedroom on the main floor and were delighted and grateful for the Temperpedic mattress topper. I SLEPT, like, REALLY SLEPT, on vacation, in a strange bed! It was awesome.

In the bay below we saw Orcas! and seals (three of them playing with each other, SO cute) and once a pod of what looked like porpoise. In the air above we saw eagles and hummingbirds and beautiful birds of many stipes, and then several groups of fighter jets flew overhead and made my husband's vacation complete.

The kitchen is the best equipped I've ever enjoyed on vacation. A double oven. A massive and up-to-date refrigerator. They have everything you could want in equipment from the coffee grinder to the gorgeous plates to cookie sheets and beautiful glass salad bowls and knives that actually cut. Every cupboard is clearly labeled to make finding what you need a breeze.

The ART in this place was an added bonus of happy. I could just sit in the large windowed room out front and stare and the huge oil canvas of kelly greens and royal blues for an hour; so beautiful. The kitchen table easily sat our family of six for dinner and could have accommodated ten. The picnic table on the deck is similarly oversized. We opened the windows all over the home for a breath of sea air that cools the house down in two minutes. You'll love to hear the sea just outside, just as we did. So calming.

It's a twenty minute drive to the ferry in Anacortes for the trip to the San Juans. A four hour drive to Rainier (FABULOUS hikes). An hour and a half to the Chihuly museum or the airport. My husband says this is the nicest property we've ever stayed at and that's saying something. (I loved the 18th century farmhouse in Southern France, but this property as a whole is my second favorite and this kitchen is by far the best.)

The photos on the site just do not do justice to this amazing and gorgeous home. The neighborhood is upscale, clean and quiet. The bay is beyond beautiful. The property is spectacular. Go. Enjoy. Tell the silver seals in the bay that we say hello.
Steven B. Jun 2018
It was wonderful waking up each morning watching the eagles, seals, dolphins, sea otter, rabbits and squirrels all from this wonderful home. It provided the perfect hub for visiting the San Juan Islands, Deception Pass and Diablo Dam. Everything we needed was just a few miles away. My daughters will remember this for a lifetime. We will be returning soon.
Mary Lou C. Apr 2018
This house is not new but what it lacks in that department it more than makes up for in the most incredible view, spaciousness in every room, and a well-stocked large kitchen. I rented the house to give my granddaughter and her 2 teenage girls an experience they would not forget and the girls were walking around the house with their cell phones "showing" their friends how amazing the place and the view is. There are beds to sleep 10 comfortably and room for 10 at the dining table. The TV was easy to figure out. I left several decks of cards there because there weren't any but there were lots of games to choose from. This house would NOT be suitable for small children unless you kept them on a bungie cord outside. The house is literally right at the top of the cliff at Biz Point. We went out on a friend's boat later on and the girls could see, yes, we were staying in the house that was the furthest out on the Point. We saw quite a few eagles and little dolphins. The telescope made it fun to look at various boats going by. The location was super handy for going to Anacortes or out to see the tulips. (We just made sure to avoid the new traffic circle construction area happening in April 2018 over on Hwy. 20 that runs down to Whidbey Island.) I was amazed that the house was listed at only $190 per night, which was a STEAL, but once the cleaning fee, rental company fee, and sales tax were added I think it cost me $1,400 for 4 nights so that's $350 per night. If you had 10 people I expect it would be more. It was a huge splurge but it was worth it. :-)

Excellent property, beautiful floor plan, quiet secluded location, spectacular view!
Claude C. Oct 2017
such a place of respite and solace ... we were so content
JJ M. Sep 2017
Amazing house with exceptional views.
Enjoyed all aspects of the location immensely.
Martin H. Aug 2017
wonderfull views from marvelous house
Fawn A. Aug 2017
We had a wonderful time in this house. The views were tremendous, the house was a perfect fit for our family. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibly want.
Mary D. Aug 2017
I would highly recommend this house but I was was very disappointed by the lack of response from the Vacasa property manager.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not experience better customer service as we strive for excellence. We will look into the matter for improvement. Thank you!
Henry H. Jul 2017
The vista from the house immediately grabbed our attention as we walked in. The views from the balcony and deck were better than the pictures. We saw dolphins, orcas, seals, and bald eagles from the house. The house was clean and the kitchen very well stocked. House was also very well wired for entertainment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house and this neighborhood.
Jason M. Jul 2017
Beautiful location! Perfect for my family to gather and explore the surrounding area. Highly recommended!
Wendy F. Jul 2017
We can't say enough about the gorgeous location of this home. The view is breathtaking and the location is private yet close enough to where you want to go. The beds were comfortable and the house was impeccably clean. The private beach and exploring on the rocks was our favorite time spent. Eagles, Hummingbirds, seals, starfish and bunnies were our neighbors. We hope for a happy return.
Deanne H. May 2017
This beautiful home is done exactly right. Come with high expectations and have them exceeded. Windows all around. Four all good bedrooms one for four with queen and two twins. Seals in bay. Dolphins visit. Bunnies on lawn. Can't think of anything missing for a wonderful private seaside vacation in a well designed and cared gor house. Only your wallet will complain but you can share that with 10 friends or family. This house is worth what they charge.
Abdel M. May 2017
Good location, great views, nice and spacious property.
William B. Jan 2017
From the minute we stepped through the front door of this fabulous home, we knew it was the right place to enjoy the several days of relaxation.
The home was well equipped for our needs but the VIEW was perfect. Every room in the house provided a view of the water.
We saw so much variety of wildlife from sea otters to bald eagles and so much more just relaxing in the living room. Great escape for the winter to watch storms blow through and never need to step outside.
So glad the owners of this property are able to share it with others.
Kathleen T. Oct 2016
This lovely home worked beautifully for our 8-member book club. We spent three nights there. We shopped like crazy in both Anacortes and LaConner, especially in the antique stores. The early October weather was perfect.
Pamela K. Oct 2016
Anacortes is a charming little town with very friendly people and quaint shops. The property is close enough to enjoy, while allowing absolute privacy and pristine views of the water. Very comfortable beds. Spacious, light and clean.
Amye T. Sep 2016
Senior citizens and small children alike loved the house and it's view.
My family has rented several vacation homes over the past years.
This was our FAVORITE!
The only appliance we looked for that we did not locate was a crock pot.
Best furnished kitchen, EVER!!
Gene C. Aug 2016
Amazing view, convenient location!
Cindy S. Jul 2016
We were very comfortable staying in this clean, beautiful house, and loved observing the wildlife (bald eagles, dolphins, harbor seals, great blue herons, quail, cormorants, etc.) from the deck, and even from inside. The kitchen and large dining room meant that we could create great meals on those nights we didn't go out for dinner. Be forewarned that the washer and dryer, listed as available on the listing, are NOT to be used by renters, at least not when we stayed! This is an issue for those of us traveling by plane and needing to pack more clothes, given that we can't clean them during our stay.
Manager response:
We apologize for any confusion regarding the washer and dryer; they are an advertised amenity and are for guest use.
David V. Jul 2016
The house is amazing. The views! And the whole place is perfect, clean, and in greate shape! I want tonspend a whole summer there!

Loved it!
Susan H. Jul 2016
We booked this home to facilitate our visit during our Navy son's Change of Command ceremony and festivities. The location was wonderful, home spectacular and views truly incredible. It is a comfortable home possessing all the things visitors need.
Unfortunately, I did not read the fine print prohibiting any additional visitors or dinner guests as well as the fact the washer/dryer was not available for use during our week long stay. We have rented homes throughout the world and never have experienced like these. The rules stated we could ask for special permission to have additional people visit and this was denied. Extremely disappointing during this very special time .
Joseph T. Jul 2016
We saw harbor porpoises, river otters, harbor sea lions and 2 bald eagles from the property. Our kids found hermit crabs in the rocks on shore. Pictures don't do this place justice.
CHRISTI L. Jun 2016
We had 3 couples (family), all senior citizens. The home has the most amazing views! We enjoyed watching dolphins, seals, and a wide assortment of birds -- including bald eagles -- frolicking outside the large windows overlooking the bay. In the yard we saw several bunnies and a family of quail. The home is near Deception Pass bridge, Mt. Erie and other beautiful spots to explore. Anacortes is the perfect location for ferrying to other islands. We took a short drive to LaConner for some great shopping and had an unforgettable lunch at the Calico Cupboard Cafe and Bakery. (There's one in Anacortes, too!) We were very pleased with the convenience, cleanliness and well-stocked status of the home. The price is well worth the advantage of staying in a home-away-from-home instead of a stuffy and cramped hotel. Returning to the 95-degree heat in Texas made us want to re-board a flight back to the Pacific Northwest, where the weather was perfect during our stay.
Joann R. Jun 2016
Knockout views and creature comforts make this the perfect place for your next Anacortes adventure! Sit back, relax and enjoy all this lovely home offers!
Katherine M. May 2016
My husband and I took our adult children and their spouses on a family vacation. We picked the perfect place with everything you can possibly ask for in a vacation rental. The view was breathtaking and we spent many hours looking through the binoculars (unfortunately the telescope was no longer there) at all the wildlife in the area. We saw seals, dolphins, bald and golden eagles, many types of birds and even a coyote attacking a bee hive in the ground. The home was clean, had everything necessary to cook your meals, there were many board games to choose from and wifi. Although we spent time visiting places nearby, we couldn't wait to get back to the house to look out onto the water and watch the sun set. The only complaint I have is that we didn't stay there long enough!
Amanda B. Feb 2016
This house is situated on a rock overlooking the ocean. There are clear views of ocean and it's wildlife -- otters, seals, dolphins and bald eagles. The telescope in the living room brought joy to our vacation. It was wonderful watching the eagles perching in the nearby tree and watching the otters up close on the rocks. Also, the comfortable and eclectic décor of the home was great. I particularly liked the full-size totem pole in the entry way, and of course the windows throughout the house providing breathtaking panoramic views made staying at the house a fantastic way to spend a relaxing vacation.
Victor & Kimi J. Jan 2016
My boyfriend and I rented this property as a surprise for my best friend for her birthday weekend. Her boyfriend was good for keeping the secret. They picked us up from the airport and she thought we were going out to dinner and a fancy hotel but when we pulled up to the house she cried!! We took turns cooking dinner and breakfast watched beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The doorbell rang at 1030 I'm assuming a reminder for checkout which was fine. We left behind some wine and spices and breakfast items strawberries and ice our contribution to the house. Outside if the dust in some corners we were extremely satisfied and would like to bring our kids in the summer!!
