    About this property

    Expansive Water Views, Cozy Fireplace, Bird Watcher's Paradise

    Beachfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
    The Point House overlooks a small cove that faces westward for majestic sunsets. It is a unique and stunning location. The home sleeps four people quite comfortably--there are two private bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed. The great room - two living areas, a dining area, and a kitchen separate the two bedrooms providing maximum privacy. There are two bathrooms--one is off of the great room and kitchen area and offers a step-in shower, and the other, in the master bedroom, has a step-in shower as well as a tub flanked by a window overlooking the bay. Plus - Eagle's Nest - a small loft area, bathed in sunlight (or cloud light) off the great room, with water view. A great reading place. The kitchen is well-equipped, with a full-sized refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. There is also a small refrigerator for beverages or extra refrigerated storage. On the water side of the house, there is a generous, two-level deck with railing and two picnic tables - one covered. A flight of stairs from the deck lands you on the beach for beach-combing, bird-watching and kayaking. Wildlife of all kinds can surprise you-- there are wild bunnies, quail, deer, otters and a wide variety of birds. Seen recently were a doe and her two offspring, ambling up the driveway. There is also another path to the beach with a kayak launch. There is a propane grill for grilling up your favorite meals, and outside tables enable dining al fresco. Please put it back in its original place as the wind can blow it around. There are plenty of comfortable chairs to encourage you to relax and enjoy the view. The house offers WiFi access and cable TV. There is a large, flat-screen TV in the great room for movie nights, and there are flat screen TVs in each bedroom. There are numerous outdoor tables, chairs, lounging areas. The Point House is located across Skagit Bay from the Whidby Island Naval Air Station. The navy/airforce practice formations during the week. Sometimes they are over La Conner, other times they are further south or north and we don't hear them. They do not fly Friday night, Saturday or Sunday. Some folks enjoy the formations, other don't like the noise. We want you to be informed as we never know when, or if, they will be flying (except NOT on weekends.) It is not take off and landing sounds, just a low roar in the distance. Please contact the Owner/Manager regarding pets. Please Note: Children OVER 12 are welcome. WE DO NOT ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN UNDER 12 OR BABIES. We do not allow boats on trailers. Our kayaks are NOT for your use. The Point House is NOT CHILDPROOFED, AND CONTAINS SAFETY HAZARDS TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION. The games we have at the house are adult games (chess, backgammon, Scrabble, etc.). The Point House is NOT A DESTINATION PARTY HOUSE. We are located in a peaceful, quiet community of full-time residents and ask that you observe common rules of consideration regarding noise and late-night activity. In particular, you must observe the 1 mph road sign. A NOTE TO KAYAKERS--The tides and currents are unpredictable at times and the wind can come up quickly, particularly in the late afternoons, creating a heavy chop on the water. Use caution, watch closely and bring life vests suited for the purpose. The kayaks and boats on the property are NOT for your use. You may rent kayaks at in Anacortes.

      Amazing property and view

      Superbly clean residence with incredible natural light and views of the water, with a huge deck and a private beach. We came as a couple for a long weekend but really want to return with friends in the summer. One of our best ever VRBO's.

      5/5 Excellent

        Very special place

        We loved the magical views from the deck over it's own little cove. The sunset was spectacular. We had fun exploring nearby La Conner, but spending time at the house was the best part. The place was very clean and well equipped for cooking.

        5/5 Excellent

          Beautiful view! Well supplied house.

          The place and view were lovely. House had everything you could need and very nice quality furnishings and accessories. We had a great time and would definitely be interested in going back?

          5/5 Excellent

            Peace and quiet

            This is one of the most peaceful, quiet settings we've ever stayed in. (Other than the Navy planes practising, but we enjoy watching them and it's only for a brief period on most days.) The loudest thing around was the shorebirds and the sound of the waves. Three of us had a little mini-vacation to do some scrapbooking and quilting, and it was utterly relaxing. The property manager was just leaving as we arrived, so she showed us around (and showed us how to work the TV setup, which varies from house to house and sometimes we've been unable to figure it out, so this was helpful) and made sure we knew she was available if we had any questions during our stay. The house is very spacious, the furniture and beds comfortable, and we hope to be back again!

            5/5 Excellent

              Exceeded our expectations!

              If you are looking for a relaxing water front cabin, this is the spot for you! The owner takes meticulous care of this rental. It is clean, has nice linens, has a fully stocked kitchen, gorgeous water views, access to little beach cove, BBQ, and a lovely expansive deck. We enjoyed waking up on the water and then exploring the towns of La Connor, Mt. Vernon, and Fairhaven. Would definitely like to come back and enjoy a summer weekend as well!
