After weeks of searching for housing, I'm hoping the good people of SJI can help my partner and I find a long-term rental on San Juan Island. We're relocating from Cape Cod next month because I got a job as San Juan County's Marine Mammal Stranding Network Coordinator (in association with The Whale Museum & FHL) and my partner will be working as an EMT on-island. We are by no means new to the island, we've spent the last 3 years there and left due to relocation. We plan to be on the island for at least a couple years so we're interested in a long-term rental. We're more than comfortable with "unique" housing opportunities (tiny houses, boats, cabins, etc.) and are happy to live in small spaces! If you'd like rental references, we have a plethora of previous landlords that would be happy to provide glowing recommendations. So, if you or someone you know happens to know of an opportunity please call or text me at (425) 418 - 1998. We have a very realistic understanding of rental prices on the island, so we'd be happy to talk. Cheers! Alyssa & Rachael posted 07/19

Hello, my name is Nick and I’m currently seeking a room to rent somewhere on San Juan Island year-round. I’ve lived and worked on San Juan Island for years and am looking to change up my living situation. I’ve lived with roommates before so I have experience in sharing living spaces. I really just need a room or a studio in a house with access to the bathroom and kitchen. Also the house must have internet. I have a small dog that has never done any damage to my residences. I can provide references for both myself and the dog. My budget for rent would be around $650-800 per month. I have a history of being an excellent tenant and I always pay rent on time. If you have anything available that could fit my needs please text me at 360-998-9165 or email me at posted 07/19

Hi all! My husband and I are full time and long term islanders looking for a new and improved spot to call home. We both have full time, year round employment and have been at our current rental for 3 years now. We have amazing personal/professional references as well as renters insurance. Here’s the kicker *gasp* we have two adorable dogs (3&2yrs old) that are simply not negotiable because they are our family/children. Both have lived happily at our current rental their entire lives and both also have amazing personal references themselves (we raised them to be responsible citizens!) If any of you have any leads on something $1350 or less in or out of town (no apartments/condos) or somewhere long term we can put a trailer with hook-ups give me a shout, I’d love to chat. Cheers! 360-296-3576 (call or text) posted 07/03

Do you have a spare room, guest cottage, or studio (or a plot of land on which a tent could be set up)? Are you looking for a reliable, clean, organized, thoughtful person to inhabit that space? Hi! My name is Kate and I recently graduated from college where I studied the sociology of stand up comedy! I moved to San Juan Island a couple weeks ago and have been desperately trying to find housing ever since. I work for a kayaking company and am looking for housing through the summer, possibly until October (but ending date negotiable!). I like to sing, dance, hike, read, meet new people, and learn new things; I just want a stable place to plop my busy head at night that is not my car. Price range: less than $1000 + I am also open to doing errands, chores, house sitting etc. for you in exchange! Feel free to text me at: 415 755 7555, or email me at:  posted 06/28

Home on San Juan Island Wanted

Searching for a home on SJI to purchase within the next 3 months (or so). Specifically, am interested in Portland Fair, Cape San Juan or Eagle Cove (the least likely). Small is beautiful; 2 bdrs. ideal , flatish lot or even small amount of acreage, plenty of sunlight non-negotiable. I am open to possibilities. Does not have to be updated necessarily, could need some "work"...but nothing structural. Garage or not...very close to the beach? That would be incredible. Financial requirements: I have a maximum I can go, but please respond to discuss that. I am selling a home in Skagit - therefore, if something comes up soon, it will have to be contingent on the sale. Cash purchase only. Rent/purchase with that in mind? I am a past islander..believe me, it's a much better life there(!!). Thank you for your response. No realtors, please. or 360-399-1085 posted 10/05
