                      San Juan Island is the best area to actually see Orca whales in the wild easily during the summer months. Fall and Spring it is a birders paradise with many species passing through en route to their winter home or summer breeding grounds. Many birds reside here in the winter, most beautiful are the Trumpeter Swans and the Great Blue Heron, plus the largest population of Bald Eagles outside of Alaska, reside in the San Juan Islands. We have 3 National Parks on our small beautiful island so there are a lot of opportunities for hiking on the well marked trails.

                      This is the first secure 2nd floor Loft type apartments built in Friday Harbor. They were designed to creatively utilize the unused open space of the upstairs of the Ace Hardware building. The original tenant of Unit D, was a world class faux artist and this Loft was her portfolio. Plus, this unit has a wonderful balcony for viewing the water, watching the activity of downtown and the farmers market.
