We hope you enjoy your stay and love Camano Island as much as we do.
Thank you for being our guests!
I have lived on Camano for 19 years , commuting to Seattle, where I worked until recently as a nurse. I love feeling like I'm on vacation when I'm at home and enjoy my time here with my grandkids and other family and friends as well as my peaceful time to myself. Time at the beach anytime of year is something I am very grateful for. I also love to travel and look forward to staying at other airbnbs in the future.
