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.

Beautiful, spacious house overlooking the water

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay at Gracie's Beach House over the weekend. The house is really beautiful and a lot more spacious than the pictures make it seem - large living room and dining room, big bedrooms, enormous front lawn and a great back deck and fire pit area. Everything was super clean and comfortable. Waking up in the morning to the view of the beautiful sunrise over the water and mountains was amazing. I only wish there were a hot tub!

Lovely home!

  • 5 out of 5
We met our family here at Gracie's beach house for a week and had a wonderful time! Our group of eight people had plenty of room to spread out, everybody had a comfortable bed and there were lots of comfy chairs and couches for our group of avid readers! The kitchen was well equipped for cooking at home, which we would recommend since it's quite a drive to get to any sort of restaurant. We loved having access to the beach, we brought our paddle boards and left them at the bottom of the staircase. The bay was perfect for paddling and we enjoyed some great morning and evening paddles. This is a great place for a relaxing getaway. It's very quite on this island. The state parks we visited had nice walking trails, not strenuous at all, in fact you would probably have to leave the island for challenging hikes and activities. Thanks for sharing your property with us, we really enjoyed ourselves and the eagles did not disappoint! They were there promptly every morning and evening!!

Family wedding

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gracie's Beach House. The beds were comfortable, the kitchenware well stocked, the house nicely appointed. The easy access to the beach, outdoor tables and fire pit made for a great outdoor experience. Camano Island is a charming place to relax and Gracie's Beach House the perfect place to do that! Thank you!

Excellent House

  • 5 out of 5
We have this house hosted 8 college mates as a reunion for three nights. Some of us have not seen each other for about 30 years. In the group, we have people coming all the way from Niagara Falls, New York, Chicago, Los Angels and Vancouver B.C. The house provides us comfortable beds, full equipped kitchen. Best of all is its spectacular viewing of sunrise. We enjoyed the many steps of stairway to the beach.
The owner is very helpful with all the questions answered and with detailed information and directions provided. The house is very clean and well maintained. We have our damage deposit returned in a speedy way.
We highly recommended this house to our friends right away after our vacation. It is really a nice house to spend a short summer vacation for any event. Kathy is really a nice owner to work with. We are looking forward to coming back in the future.

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!

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.
