Friday Harbor house description

Robinson's Cove-'Thanks for letting us share this awesome place. Decided not to leave, hope you don't mind!' This sentiment entered in our guestbook is echoed time and again by those who stay at Robinson's Cove. For good reason, this is one of our most popular vacation rental homes - you'll need to book this perfect slice of paradise early!

This vacation home on San Juan Island has spectacular 180 degree views of blue waterways, neighboring islands, and the Cascade Range, including Mt. Baker. In addition to the superb natural surroundings, the setting is also an attraction as the property is located in the desirable NE corner of San Juan Island - a wonderful base for walking, riding bikes, and there's even a path that leads from the property to a neighborhood park where you can picnic and kayak in the cove. In addition, there's a great wrap-around deck and a hot tub privately perched onto the hillside.

The home offers attractive furnishings, a nicely equipped kitchen, and the contemporary conveniences of WIFI and satellite TV. The floor plan will please both families and couples traveling together. On the main level, you'll find the kitchen, dining areas, and a living room with window seats just perfect for lounging to embrace the view and cozy up to a fire. The master bedroom is also on this level, with a king-size bed and private bath. On the lower level there are two guest bedrooms and a shared bath. One of these bedrooms offers a second king size bed, waterview, and patio. The other has a queen bed and access to the hot tub and sauna. Also downstairs is the family room with computer desk, wood stove, deluxe queen-size sofabed, laundry room, and a Foosball table to enjoy.

Kids will love the trails and play areas on this 1.5 acre property, but you'll have to pay attention to children and dogs because the property edge over the water is fairly steep.

Robinson’s Cove is a 15 minute drive from Friday Harbor and only a 5 minute drive from Roche Harbor's dining options, post office, airport, marina, spa, & grocery.

Robinson's Cove is cared for by Vacation Doorways, a local property management company, to make sure your stay goes smoothly!

The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Lovely hone with great views. From the advertisement it looked like beach access was closer than it was in reality. A short, very steep walk was necessary. Not everyone ventured the climb. The main bedroom was lovely, but the other two are located on the lower level and feel rather like a basement. It was very comfortable, spacious and clean, but a little pricey given the aforementioned items.

Reviewer Comments: I'm ashamed to say that we've lived in Washington for over 45 years, but that this is our first extended stay in the islands. What a treat! Robinson's Cove is a great location, lots to see, close to almost everything, and we and our extended family had a blast. Nana & Grandpa even got a little "us" time at the end of the stay. We'll be back!

I do have to say that the carpet was filthy and the master bed comforter smelled pretty bad. The living room's TV could have easier instruction then the ones they have, those are more complicated than need be, just turn on amplifier and put on the right channel, then turn on the TV and the cable boxes. Everything else was fine, clean bathrooms, kitchen was a little dirty but not disgusting. I would go back because of the beautiful location and with hopes that they get better at getting it cleaned.

Beautiful property, plenty of room, clearly marked instructions and all the privacy we could have wanted. Also an incredible view. Loved the hot tub and the walk to the water's edge. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Reviewer Comments: We very easily could have filled two weeks, or even a full month in this area, to hike, paddle board, kayak, whale watch, dine out, visit nearby islands...and when back 'home', to gawk at passing boats , sip in the hot tub, skip rocks at the neighboring beach, prepare crab straight from the pier and simply to welcome each sunrise with a cup of coffee.....we savored each moment of these beautiful islands from the comforts of this amazing home!

The shore below the house was wonderful for the kids to explore. A few things such as sunrise facing blinds, hot tub water, dishwasher,ice dispenser,a bathroom sink stopper and bike chain were in need of replacement/repair but many other aspect were lovely and well kept. I was impressed with the number of things that were there for our use. We were very pleased with our choice. Weather was perfect!
