There are many reasons to move to Camano Island: the relaxed island atmosphere, friendly neighbors, and beautiful scenery right in your backyard. If you’ve dreamed of living on an island, you should definitely consider Camano Island.
We understand that not everyone is excited about moving to an island. There are often drawbacks to living in a beautiful place far away from the business of everyday life. This is why Camano Island is so special. We have beaches, state parks, a golf course, and a winery. Your neighbors go boating in the summers and fresh crab is an island staple. While other islands can boast similar things, we can proudly say that we’re also twenty minutes away from the urban centers of Smokey Point, Mount Vernon, and Burlington. If you’re ready to go out after a long, sleepy day on the beach, look no further than the bustling I5 corridor directly accessible via highway 532. The Seattle gridlock often ends in Marysville, so feel free to head out for a day of shopping at any time! Plan your day around you, not around rush-hour.
If you don’t feel like driving for twenty minutes to pick up a few groceries, that’s ok! Camano Island and Stanwood have several options for home necessities, including QFC, Mod Pizza, Starbucks, Rite Aid Pharmacy and more!
Looking for a place to grab a drink with a friend? Check out either of our two craft breweries or any one of our three artisanal coffee shops. If hiking and adventuring is more your style, look no further than Cama Beach State Park, or Camano Island State Park; located less than twenty minutes from anywhere on the island.
There’s also no need to worry about finding a gas station, either. In Stanwood and on Camano Island, take your pick of the six (competing!) fueling locations available.
Camano Island gives you the opportunity to experience life on vacation while still enjoying the convenience of living near a major urban center. Take a walk on the beach in the morning, then take a five-minute drive to Stanwood to do your afternoon shopping. Living “away from it all” doesn’t mean having to give up your access to civilization! Own a home on the beach and get your Starbucks fix every morning. Watch beautiful sunrises, and visit local boutiques and department stores.
When you live on Camano Island, we believe you can have it all.
