CONTRACT PENIDING!!!! Vendovi Island is a private 216 +/- acre island in the San Juan archipelago which lies across Samish Bay from mainland Skagit County and seven miles north of Anacortes, Washington.

This is a rare opportunity to own a private island in the beautiful San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington. The 216+/- acre paradise has been used as a family getaway for the past 43 years, but is ideal for constructing a secluded retreat for corporate or personal ventures. Just seven miles north of Anacortes in the San Juan archipelago, Vendovi Island is located across Samish Bay from mainland Skagit County. With varied topography ranging from sea level to 338+/- feet, the land use designation is Rural Reserve (RRv).


Boasting 13,000+/- feet of shoreline with six beaches, the island is one of the premier private islands in the area and has numerous dramatic vistas as well as gorgeous natural scenery. Long used as a seasonal residence, the island includes a caretaker/owner’s home as well as various outbuildings and structures. The cozy home is complimented by picnic and fireplace structures, garage, workshop, wood shed, oil shed, generator building with 400-gallon fuel tank, sawmill building, and treehouse.


Utilities are provided privately and onsite and include a hand-dug well, 19,000-gallon water tower/tank, four generators, septic tank, 500-gallon fuel trailer tank, two 500-gallon fuel storage tanks, a 500-gallon and 100-gallon propane tank.


Accessible by private boat or floatplane, Vendovi Island has a protected harbor with a rock breakwater* and a 52’x8’ pier with a 40’x4’ metal ramp and an 84’x7.5’ floating dock. The float is currently owned by the US Coast Guard and a reciprocal lease agreement provides the float may be used in exchange for keeping it maintained and extending minimal moorage privileges to the Coast Guard.


*A 30-year renewable aquatic land lease is in place (expiring 4/1/2037) with the State of Washington for the sole purpose of the 200+/- foot rock breakwater.


The San Juan Islands has long been a tourist destination with sea kayaking and Orca whale watching as primary attractions. The serenity, beauty, and lifestyle associated with these islands continually draw many looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Owning a private island with this desirable setting is rare and affords a range of possibility and uses. From multiple beaches to spectacular views, Vendovi Island is a 216+/- acre paradise with unspoiled beauty and incredible potential.


With various structures and private onsite utilities, the island is a world in and of itself in the heart of this beautiful region along the San Juan archipelago.
