GRACIE'S BEACH HOUSE ON TRANQUIL CAMANO ISLAND

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Camano Island - Gracie's Beach House

One-Level House, 4 Bedrooms/3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Do nothing, or everything, here!

Peaceful and private waterfront retreat, perfect for solos and families or other small groups alike. Enjoy the pristine Puget Sound shoreline without having wait in line for a ferry! Camano Island is just 75 minutes north of Seattle, and boasts two State Parks, numerous beaches and hiking trails, gorgeous views and vintage summer experiences. Roast marshmallows in the fire pit or on the beach, go crabbing and clamming when allowed, beachcomb, hunt for antiques in the many funky stores nearby, ride your bikes around the island, explore art galleries, and enjoy quality time with friends and family. How about a round of golf? Camaloch golf course is just minutes away. Or take a day trip to nearby LaConner, Anacortes or the tulip festival in Mt. Vernon. One of my favorite day trips is to the Fairhaven section of Bellingham, less than an hour north.

If you are looking for a party house, please look elsewhere!!

Large (2200 s.f.) one-level home with sweeping water views, large windows and lots of light. Wraparound deck and huge patio, with stairs to private beach. The home sits on a bluff point above the water, providing privacy and great views. Take the stairs down to our privately owned beach, or a short 5 minute walk to the beach using the road. Access to two other private beaches and picnic areas in the Country Club area. Enjoy coffee in the morning sun, and watch the Eagles that often perch in the trees right in front of you. Listen to the waves lap the shore while you read a good book or catch up with friends and family. Comfortable furniture and beds, everything you need to relax and enjoy. King size pillowtop bed in master, Queen in 2nd bedroom, King (two extra-long pillowtop twins side by side) in 3rd bedroom, and bunkbeds (w/crib mattress trundle) in 4th (kids') bedroom. Sleeps 6 adults and 2-3 kids very comfortably. The house is extremely kid friendly, with lots of great toys and space.

Hike the trails at Camano Island State Park on the south end of the island, kayak or crab at Utsalady Bay on the north end, or view eagles and great blue herons. Hummingbirds abound. Small county parks at Utsalady Bay and the nearby Cavalero Beach offer boaters convenient launch sites.

It really is the 'shortest distance to far away'!

Guestbook comments from the owner
"I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful place this past weekend. It was all (and more) than we expected. Everything was just terrific and we found ourselves completely transformed by relaxation and family time...Mom was a little weepy, missing Dad so much...if only he could have lived to see your wonderful home and all the love it holds...thank you for sharing so much with us, we will be back."

I love spending time on Camano and when I can't be there I love knowing that this house is being enjoyed by friends, family, and perhaps you.

Cindy purchased this house in 2006

My home-away-from-home is all about family and friends sharing a special time at the beach. The accessibility of this beautiful retreat and just the general peaceful feel of the place is why I bought here. No ferry lines!!

Gracie's Beach House is easy to get to and yet feels worlds away. I walk in the door and immediately relax. Even just one night is rejuvenating. Enjoy walks on the beach, cooking for friends, relaxing with a good book, going for a long walk, entertaining, and gazing at the view. There are so many beautiful places, neat shops and cozy spots to visit on Camano Island and nearby Stanwood. In the summer, I love to stargaze and enjoy the quiet and warmth of the night.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 out of 5
My family stayed here for a week over the 4th. What a beautiful and relaxing home. On the 4th, fireworks were set off from all around the water and from the deck it was like having your own personal fireworks show. The kitchen is well appointed and all of the bedrooms were very comfortable. There are a lot of steps down to the beach but we didn't mind as we used it to get our exercise! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

GREAT HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week in the home. No complaints at all! Cindy was great to work with. Enjoyed all the amenities of home. Great private setting overlooking the water. The home itself has a spacious feel to it. Plenty of room for all 8 of us. Enjoyed the bald eagles perched out back each morning!

A PERFECT HOME

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful rental home for a family. We had four adults and three children and there was plenty of room for everyone. Two bald eagles watch over you from the treetops above.The view is spectacular and the home is completed updated. We couldn't ask for more.

FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful vacation home. It is beautiful, comfortable, and very relaxing. We certainly had everything we needed. It is an excellent place for family gatherings.....something for everyone. Would definitely recommend it to others and our family wants to visit again. The owner is very helpful and makes you feel right at home.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, SPECTACULAR VIEW, PERFECT FOR FAMILIES TRAVELING TOGETHER!

  • 5 out of 5
As soon as we arrived at Gracie's Beach House, we immediately started planning a return trip. It's an absolutely beautiful home, lots of open space, very nicely furnished with attractive and comfortable furniture, and OH MY GOD the view. Wow. It's hard to beat sitting in the recliners in the sun room looking out over the gorgeous water. Pure relaxation!

This home was totally perfect for our needs. We were two families traveling together, a total of four adults plus three children (two 5-year-old girls and a 2.5-year-old boy). The bunk bed room was perfect for the girls (they especially appreciated the night lights!) and each couple had a comfortable king bedroom. The toddler can't vouch for the comfort of the queen bed as he slept on a blow-up bed on the floor. But it was really nice that he had his own room for naps and bedtime.

We did all our own cooking and found the kitchen and pantry to be fully stocked with all the equipment we needed. Plenty of options for serving platters, bowls, glasses, utensils, etc. and even a full supply of kids cups/glasses/silverware.

The play room was AWESOME and very well stocked with toys, dress-up stuff, a TV/DVD and TONS of videos. All the kids loved the space and the adults loved that the kids had a safe place to keep themselves occupied. (And it was really nice not to have to pack any toys!) The cute little play house in the front yard was also a hit, as was the large grassy area around it.

Even on a chilly, windy spring day, the beach was tons of fun for the kids. (We all really enjoyed our hot cocoa when we got back to the house!) We brought a few sand toys with us and they had a blast. The stairs to the beach were a bit steep in places but the 5-year-olds safely navigated them up and down without any problem.

The owner did an excellent job clearly outlining the rules of the house and how everything works, and we appreciated the step-by-step instructions for using the A/V equipment (we loved that there were two different places to plug in our iPod). No guesswork required, which makes a vacation that much more relaxing.

This was our first visit to Camano Island and we will definitely return! Easy drive from Seattle, took a little more than 90 minutes on a Friday afternoon with a fair amount of traffic. We didn't visit any local shops or restaurants so can't speak to that experience. Gracie's Beach House is so wonderful we didn't want to leave!

Car: necessary

Art galleries abound on Camano Island! The Island is a great spot for birdwatching, and beachcombing for shells, seaglass and driftwood. Act like a local and head to Elger Bay Grocery to buy a fishing license, bait, and ice cream novelties for the kids.
