Newly built tiny house finished in June 2015. Master loft sleeps 2 on the memory foam Queen mattress. Small loft has a foldout single-sleeper foam pad that fits a shorter-sized adult which we make up into a bed upon request, otherwise it remains a reading/lounge area with no sheets. Kitchen has a large toaster oven, (can fit a pizza) 2 burner cook top, all cooking utensils you'll need, small fridge, eating nook, couch, bathroom, TV w/Netflix, outdoor patio, fire pit, bbq & more!
Queen memory foam mattress is located in main loft, and there is a single sleeper foam pad in the smaller reading-nook loft. This single sleeping spot will only be made up into a bed with sheets for a rental of two people IF REQUESTED beforehand. Otherwise it will be set up for lounging and reading during your stay, as we will assume the 2 guests are sharing queen bed. Kitchen has a mini fridge with a freezer, 2 burner stove top, toaster oven, coffee maker, french press and all the plates, pots & pans, silverware and mugs needed to make and enjoy your meals. We also have some spices, condiments and cooking extras in the kitchen that you are free to use. Couch and small dining area for two also located on main floor with kitchen. Propane BBQ, picnic table and fire pit on patio outside. Four different bikes are available to use during your stay, if you want to explore and walk or pedal around the island, and they are located in the Rubbermaid shed near the tiny house. *Want to visit the tiny house, but need more than 3 places to sleep? During the summer months we offer setting up our pop-up tent camper right next to the tiny house. This camper has 2 new foam mattress double beds, new flooring, new couch cushions, upholstery, and tent canvas. We provide the bed top sheet and pillows, you bring your own sleeping bags. Check out the camper photo towards the end of our listings pictures for details and send us a message if you'd like us to add it to your stay for an extra $65. a night. Please note, there is no bathroom in the camper, just the 2 beds and a sitting couch, but we'll set it up right near the tiny house to keep you close enough for any late night bathroom visits.
On island food options: The main island store at the ferry landing is currently open Seven days a week, and serves food, beer and wine, and sells limited grocery items. The store is a fun place to sit at the bar and chat with local islanders, or sit outside in the beer garden on sunny days and watch the boats go by.
There is also a small store at the Guemes Island Resort on the North tip of the island, that sells beer, wine, and alcohol, and limited food items (like frozen pizzas!) It is open daily from 9 - 7pm and is a 15 minute drive from the Tiny house.

Hello! I am an Illustrator for my screen printing company living & working on Guemes Island with my husband Carson who is a woodworker. We both have our studios on the property and work from home. We are easy going people who love to build and make things in our spare time and really enjoy meeting new people. We just recently had a new baby girl, (Nov. 2015) and we're pretty darn excited. Our tiny house is located in the woods on our 5.5 acre property, so we are readily available to help with any questions you may have, but far enough away to provide you with a stay that's all your own. We have a pet pig named Walter who sleeps all day, and a black lab named Marley, who may wander down to welcome you during your stay. She just can't help herself, she's loves people, so please let us know if you aren't a dog person, and we'll keep her out of your hair.
