                            This was a three day girls trip in August. The house is on a large lot, very peaceful setting, but only minutes away from the ferry and city center. It is clean, beautiful and the kitchen is well stocked (the bar as well) if you want to cook yourself. The owner has a Thai restaurant on the Island, so why cook yourself when you can have wonderful Thai food catered to you in the beautiful garden that's part of the rental. Boy the garden is beautiful this time of the year, I wish this site allows for photo upload. If you are doing any hiking on the island, make sure to bring your "After Bite".

                            I am terribly busy since my San Juan vacation but my wife and I loved this place so much, I have to find some time to leave my review (even that means I need to work overtime tonight). We arrived late because we missed the 5pm Ferry, got there around 10pm. We cannot believe how beautiful the garden was, even in the dark. We were absolutely exciting to tour the house with the owner Avon, who was waiting for us. We really appreciate the indoor decoration. All kinds of things, from fruits and rice to laundry baskets in each room, were thoughtfully provided. It was really relaxing staying there. I spent one afternoon having a cup of tea and reading a book in the well-maintained and beautifully blossoming garden, it was really relax. If you lucky like me, you got chance to see humming bird right by you. Avon told me there were different kinds of birds visiting the garden all the time. Now I need to mention some other features this place offers: A large open area in front of the house which was great for family with little ones, Wi-Fi connection, a PC with guest account, One big TV in the living room with cable and a smaller one in the master bedroom. And as a bonus point, the owner of this place also owns a great Thai restaurant and you can call them and get the food delivered to the place. Avon prepared a lot of fresh fruit (Mango, orange, apples…) and candies in the house too. The kitchen is well equipped which will satisfy most if not all of your cooking needs. Based on our previous experience with vacation rental, we brought rice and many cooking material. Here had it all. To be clear, this is the best vacation rental place we had since we start using vacation rental 5 years ago using Homeway and VRBO. This place does not have ocean view, but if you don’t have problem with that, then this is very great place to stay in San Juan Island. We will recommend this place to any of our friend who plans to go to San Juan and we will definitely try to book there again in the future. Yes, after one month, my wife still talks about the beautiful garden?. Thank you Avon for a great stay!

                            This house was great! It was decorated in a Thai décor, It was roomy, the kitchen had a ton of amenities. The host was extremely gracious and catered 2 dinners for us, which was extremely delicious. Overall, if you are looking for a great place to stay in Friday Harbor. I would serious consider this one. The outside gazebo was great to hang out and talk, and as an added bonus there was a massage chair that I took advantage of! I would definitely stay there again! Thanks Avon for being such a gracious hostess.

                            We had a fabulous time. The owner was very hospitable. Avon also owns a Thai restaurant so, of course, we took advantage of it. We order some items that were not on the menu but Avon did a fantastic job. The house was big and comfortable for the five of us. The garden was not pictured but it was gorgeous with all the blooms in full. The garden deserves a spot in the House and Garden magazine. We would definitely rent again when we visit Friday Harbor. Thank you, Avon.

                            Our experience at The Blue House was wonderful. The gardens were in full bloom and so peaceful to enjoy all the beauty around us. We had a car and bicycles to explore the island. We actually didn't need a car. The location is ideal-easy bike ride to Friday Harbor, close to the San Juan winery and Duck Soup Inn. It is a great house for a family reunion. The kitchen is well equipped and perfect for entertaining! We liked the Asian decor. All rooms were cozy, comfortable, and very clean. We will be back!
