Overview

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.

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'!

About Cindy

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

Why Cindy chose Camano Island

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!!

What makes this house unique

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.

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."

Beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect weekend! Glorious weather and an inviting house. Really, the view and deck are what make this place. The house is great for a large group. The living areas are open and inviting which make it perfect for visiting. We loved watching the eagles! Couldn't believe they were right there. Get ready for lots of stairs to go down to the beach; this wasn't a problem for our group, but could present difficulty for some. Loved collecting rocks on the almost-private beach. The bunk room is perfect for kids--but we had all adults. My 20-something son LOVED the pink frilly comforters. :) Remember you have to pack your garbage out.

Another amazing weekend at Gracie's Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Gracie's Beach House was once again the perfect getaway. This was our second visit and we plan to come back every year. It has a lovely layout with plenty of room for our group of four adults and three kids. The home is equipped with everything you could need need, especially for families with young kids. Between the play room stocked with toys, the little play house outside, the large lawn area, and the beach down below, the kids were totally entertained all weekend. And for the grown-ups, the beautiful sun room with gas stove, comfy recliners and breathtaking water view is the perfect place to relax. Love this home and can't wait to come back every year!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pictured and represented. Super comfy and cozy. Their "pet" eagles showed up every morning in the tree right at the edge of the patio. Such an amazing sight! We saw two adults and two immature juveniles. They put on an aerial display one afternoon. The beach is lovely and secluded.

The house is well appointed with pots,pans, and appliances to make cooking a pleasure. The living room and family room are perfect for snuggling in and visiting, playing games or watching tv. Great selection of DVDs too. I'll bring grandkids next time.

Gracie's Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Gracie's Beach House is a very private setting. Purched on a cliff directly above the Pudget Sound with an Eastern exposure and incredible views of the Sound, snow capped Mt. Baker and the Cascade Mountains. The house was well equipped and plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We could hear the waves hitting the shoreline while watching for the countless Bald Eagle sightings. We will most definitely be back.

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The best Christmas ever at Gracie's Beach House included baking turkey and the trimmings for Christmas Dinner; the kid's playroom packed full of dolls, toys, costumes, movies and Lincoln Logs keeping two toddlers busy exploring and playing while the adults loved watching the busy eagles in the tree-tops just outside our window! Cindy's directions and her attention to detail made everyone feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside and made this the perfect family retreat even more special for making memories. We enjoyed hiking, walking to the beach, doing puzzles and legos, eating at the restaurant at the golf course, and driving to La Connor on the back roads for shopping and lunch. The snow geese and wild swans were stunning--thousands of them in the wet fields looking for good roots to eat. We hope to return soon. And, loved that we did not need to take the ferry to stay on this lovely island!

Lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5

Gracie's Beach House is absolutely beautiful! It's not a long drive from Seattle, but feels remote and tucked away. The house is spacious with a great kitchen and spectacular views. I went with a group of girlfriends, but it would be a wonderful place for families, as there is a playhouse outside as well as a play room. I hope to return soon!
