Kanaka Bay Cottage

Guest Rating:

Sleeps 6, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Friday Harbor, WA 98250 United States

Nantucket Style with peak-a-boo water view.
This newly listed 2 bedroom (plus a futon room), 2.5 bathroom house located close to Kanaka Bay is a perfect getaway to relax and rejuvenate on San Juan Island.

This charming house features a fully stocked kitchen, two outdoor decks and a 0.25-acre lawn. A gas BBQ is available to cook Westcott Bay oysters while watching the sunset from this west-facing house. Enjoy the lovely view with your morning cup of coffee, and possibly spot some whales from the private primary bedroom porch.

The living room offers a simple and cozy arrangement to relax together after a day of exploring! An array of books is provided, or the comfortable seating is perfect to curl up as a family with a movie.

The layout of the two bedrooms upstairs makes it feel as though there are two primaries with separate bathrooms attached. This makes it ideal for two couples with a possible younger traveler as well. The top of the landing opens up to a small office area, and just past that is the futon room. (Privacy offered with a curtain partition.) The primary queen bedroom with en-suite bath is to your right, while the other primary king bedroom with en suite bath is to your left. Both offer beautiful views through the picture windows.

This home is perfectly situated down a very private road just a few miles from downtown Friday Harbor. The rest of this 1.5 acre property is covered with lush, naturally growing vegetation, which adds to the feeling of privacy. Bring your bikes to travel from the property out to the famous Westside Preserve and Lime Kiln Lighthouse, which is a great spot for a sunset cocktail with a chance of seeing some whales, porpoise, Harbor Seals, sea lions and bald eagles!!

Please be advised, yard maintenance may occur during your stay.

    We loved our stay on San Juan Island! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Very comfortable stay for our group of four adults. The house is secluded but with the size of the island, it is easy access to everything.

    a guest from Berwyn, Pennsylvania recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful week at Kanaka Bay Cottage with our 20-something kids. It's a great launching spot to explore the islands...down a winding road, quiet and private. Clean, good location, nicely appointed. Only drawback - the water view is pretty small and from the second floor (stated in listing). Overall we recommend this house!

    a guest from Bridgeport, CT recommends this vacation rental

    I’m tempted to tell the world that this vacation rental is a horrid shack and infested with gremlins, just so that we never have trouble booking the house ourselves! In reality, this charming home is just perfect! Large, clean, well-thought out. We loved that the multiple porches allowed us to find or avoid the sun, depending on our moods.

    We can’t wait to go back and stay longer!

    William M from ANTIOCH, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Very clean. Every item you might need is there for you. Super comfortable bed and the bathroom situation is perfect for the sleeping arrangements. If you are looking to sleep in late this may not be the best place. The windows in the bedrooms lack any coverings. I really think the owner should possibly think about providing some blinds. Minor complaint. We used the kitchen for all of our meals and it is well put together. BTW fantastic towels. Quit and with lost of wildlife. Enjoyed the nightly visits with the foxes. Enjoyed our stay and would do so again if we visit this area another time.

    • Manager Responded on 3/10/2023

      Thanks for the wonderful review of the Kanaka Bay Cottage! We’re sorry to hear you were bothered by lack of blinds in the bedrooms. This home tries to focus on the lovely views surrounding the area. The sunrise timing is really dependent on the season, but we’re sorry to hear your stay was right in that time of year for the sunrise to come up by the bedroom windows.

    We stayed here (two couples with a 9 yo, 7 yo, and 9 month old infant) and were very comfortable. We found the house and amenities (linens, dishware, etc.) to be in very good condition and the management company was super communicative and responsive. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again! Thank you!

    One word comes to mind when I think of this location, Outstanding. I would like to personally thank Rhiannon for recommending the Kanaka Bay Cottage Rental. Everything she described was to perfection. If it were not for her we would have probably stayed at another location. I and my family enjoyed our stay immensely. I will highly recommend this location to other family members and friends.
    Please thank Rhiannon for me. She deserves full credit and a promotion. Thank you once again.

    Vanessa S from Arlington , VA recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed our stay. The house was modern and well equipped and very spacious for 2 couples. While not directly on waterfront, it was not a long walk to some beach areas and the location was very secluded. We saw deer, rabbits and a brief glimpse of a silver fox during our visit! Nothing on the island was very far to drive and we enjoyed the hiking, historical sites, and great restaurants in Friday Harbor. Definitely on the list to visit again.

    Sandra B from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    The house was great. It was very comfortable, clean and nice location. We loved returning each night to prepare our own meals and enjoy the privacy of the cottage. I would suggest sleeping for 4 or 5. But sharing the den futon is best for one person. The dishes, pots and pans were very adequate and well stocked to prepare a variety of types of meals. The view from the upper rooms is just enough of the ocean. Do know that when you turn onto Kananka Rd, you will drive on the dirt road for a good distance until you reach Bayshore Road. Do Enjoy!

    a guest from Edinburgh, XX recommends this vacation rental

    Lovely bright, well equipped home - though no kettle/tea pot - we like our tea! The accommodation was spacious with good facilities in a beautiful peaceful location close to a quiet beach with an abundance of sea and wildlife from: seals, deer, foxes, raccoons, bald eagles, hummingbirds and many bird species. We were lucky to see Orca whales on a boat trip from Friday Harbour - a highlight of our stay apart for spotting a female otter and cub walk nonchalantly across the driveway! Highly recommend this relaxing home and location.
