About Brad Augustine
Summers on San Juan Island have been a part of our lives for 25 years. We summer at our amazing property with the exception of a few rare weeks when we rent it out for others to enjoy.
Brad Augustine purchased this House in 2005
Why Brad Augustine chose Roche Harbor
We finished construction of our waterfront house in July 2015. It is very luxurious and beautifully appointed. The moon and stars at night are amazing. Westcott Bay is a protected salt water Bay and the views of Mt Young National Park (British Camp) and Yacht Haven (Garrison Bay) are stunning both day and night.
What makes this House unique
Beautifully appointed homes. Stone Countertops throughout. Wet Bar in the dining room for easy entertaining to the Living room as well as the Al Fresca on the front patio. Master Bath Shower is also a steam bath. Master Bedroom door leads to our deck with a Salt Water Hot Tub. All rooms in the waterfront home have speakers and SONOS music system controllable by a smart phone to play Pandora, Play lists or Spotify in each room.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
May be the Best Vacation Home on San Juan Island
My family and I very much enjoyed spending 10 days in August in this Roche Harbor waterfront. It is clear that the owners take great pride in this home, and want their guests to have the best of experiences.
The house itself is lovely....well designed, tastefully decorated, and well appointed. The layout was perfect for our small family and guests in that we enjoyed the 2 bedroom main house, while our guests occupied the 2 bedroom guest house.
This design afforded privacy, while at the same time allowed for the entire group comfortably assembling in the living room/dining room/kitchen area or the large deck area. We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen, as well as, using the grill, and congregating around the fire pit or using the hot tube in the evenings.
The bedrooms have fine bedding. There is nothing better than sleeping with the windows open and a cool sea breeze flowing through while under thick down comforters.
The location was perfect for our needs...close enough to everything to be convenient, but far enough away to feel removed. Roche Harbor is only a few minute drive should you need to pick up something at the grocery or lunch at the Madrona Harbor Grill. Two of our favorite places are around 5 or less minutes away.....the Duck Soup Inn and the Westcott Bay Shellfish Company. Neither should be missed on a visit to San Juan Island. And Friday Harbor is about a 20 minute drive through beautiful scenary regardless of the route you take.
I should also mention that all of our interactions with Brad Augustine were very positive and professional. He made the entire rental process very easy and straightforward.
We highly recommend this property.
A beautiful home right on the water with great views of boats going by along with some wildlofe.
The house is comfortable and spacious enough for an extended family of eight to enjoy pleasantly. The whole house is nicely built with top of the line materials and appliances. Preparing meals in the kitchen was a joy with almost all the tools we desired being provided. We all loved the big yard with plenty of space for play. We were able to explore the area on our walks to Roche Harbor and by water on our kayaks. The owners were great about contacting us ahead of time with directions, instructions and information about the house. We were so thankful to them for accomodating us when our planned lodging sold the house we had rented shortly before our trip. This location was so much better as it turned out, so we again were pleased to be able to stay here. They have reaffirmed our faith in vacation homes by owners! It is a very nice house.
Westcott Bay perfection
This house is amazing you will not be disappointed. We have been coming to San Juan Island for years and this house is amazing. The owners are very accommodating and make you feel at home. Steps from the water with spectacular views, hot tub, beautiful deck, unbelievable.
OUR NEW FAVORITE PLACE
I was a bit surprised to read the review regarding the Owner's sensitivity to damage. With my family and me, the Owners (a husband and wife) were nothing but understanding, welcoming and extremely nice. We absolutely loved our time at the Waterfront Cottage Chic property and hope to come back this summer. The main house just recently finished new construction, and it is nothing but amazing. All details were thought of - whether it be the steam shower in the master bedroom, the elegant yet livable decorating, the coziest sectional ever, or the top of the line kitchen appliances and tools. We felt right at home and had a hard time saying goodbye!
AMAZING GETAWAY HOME !!!
We stayed with our two young children in this amazing property and can't wait to come back! The views from the property are outstanding, and the home is a combination of a cozy cottage and a five star hotel. The kitchen is open and full of everything you would possibly ever need, and the home feels very welcoming. The views are beyond compare, and the special touches make you feel right at home. We enjoyed short walks to the nearby resort, exploring the waterfront, and cozy nights by the fire. I can't imagine every staying anywhere else on San Juan again!
Peace and Quiet and Open Air
This home is the perfect blend of sophistication and cozy. It has everything you need to be comfortable and entertained during your stay. Westcott Bay views present themselves from almost every room.
While we were there, we walked to Roche Harbor, kayaked in the bay, sat in the hot tub, enjoyed the outdoor fireplace, made use of the gourmet kitchen, combed the beach, laid in the hammocks, and played a rousing game of giant Jenga on the deck. We felt secluded, as the landscape is fully grown and the neighbors are quite a distance away. The adults stayed in the main house, while the teenagers claimed the carriage house - a perfect set up for our group. I am looking forward to visiting this wonderful house again.
