This is San Juan Island vacation lodging and rental at its best. Windance Cottage is one of the few premier waterfront/whale watching vacation rentals on the sunny west side of the island.

This charming guest cottage is nestled on a five acre estate. The cottage is situated behind the main estate home and located approximately 100 yards from the cottage, offering its own privacy to the cottage and its guests (we suggest you view the property on “Google Earth” for a better understanding of how the property is laid out) . The grounds feature a pond, private cove, tennis court equipped with two basketball hoops, fruit trees, and rolling lawns. Our beautiful cottage was custom built with much attention to detail, including French doors, vaulted ceilings, wood floors, a fireplace and a full kitchen.

There are magnificent views of the Olympic Mountains, the shoreline of Vancouver Island, the lights of Victoria common and spectacular sunsets over the Strait of Juan De Fuca. Premier whale watching awaits you right on the front lawn or from the picnic table above the water’s edge. The south facing exposure provides plenty of sunshine all day long.

There’s plenty to do on the property. Relax underneath the deck umbrella while bird watching. Play a game of tennis, basketball or lawn croquet. Go down to the cove to explore the tidal pools, have a picnic or launch your kayak.

When you’re ready to venture out, Deadman’s Bay Beach is a short walk or bike ride away. Lime Kiln State Park is also within walking distance and features hiking trails, prime whale watching and a view of the lighthouse.
