Recent Friday Harbor property reviews

  • Vibrant, tranquil property!

    "This place was exactly as billed from the reviews! The house is in wonderful condition with vibrant, fun decor; excellent kitchen amenities (including sharpened knives in great condition!); and comfortable furniture. The only "missing item" we wished for (and didn't see mentioned in reviews) was a bathtub in which to throw our delighted and dirty young kids after long days of endless entertainment in the play house and yard. The showers are walk-in only (and located in very nice bathrooms with concrete counter tops that we particularly envied). The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed being able to go jogging and bike riding from the house with quick access to quiet roads that hugged the perimeter of the island. Our last morning we were visited by 4 deer, including 3 young males. We had daily sightings of deer and the resident fox. The best things that stood out for us: easy and friendly reservations process; great communication with owners; house in impeccable condition; spacious and cozy rooms; bountiful linens; the most imaginative and creative play house for the kids stocked with so many playthings we did not need to bring our own toys; and large DVD and book collections with movies you'd actually want to watch/books you'd want to read. This rental was a tiny bit more expensive than others we considered and we are so glad we went for it--worth every penny!"

  • Comfortable and convenient!

    "This condo is very well kept, clean, quiet and incredibly RELAXING! The pictures don't really do it justice, it's actually so spacious and light and big! Views over town of Friday Harbor. It's an easy 2 minute walk from ferry dock, shops, restaurants, coffee, rentals, harbor and market. 10 minute easy walk to airport. This is a perfect home base for an island vacation. Can't wait to return! Our kids loved staying here, too!"

  • Peaceful family retreat

    "What a find! This property was perfect for our two families. We found the lawn a great place to play games and savor the sunshine, while the beach provided hours of entertainment, great views and a front row seat to crabbing, seal-play and eagles. The regular visits by deer delighted the little ones. Both houses were well-stocked for home-cooked meals, inside or out, and great sleeping. The roads to Roche Harbor were scenic, friendly and great for running. We would love to come back!"

    "I've been to Friday Harbor many times in my boat and have always loved it as a boater. For my recent trip without a boat, I wanted to give my girlfriend as close to a boater's experience as possible. That's when we found Otter Magic. This review will detail how it exceeded my expectations in every way. Accommodations: Otter Maginc is a "float home" which means it is a not a boat, but rather a compact apartment floating in a slip next to other boats in a marina. This pictures are accurate, the "bow" (front) of the home features a sitting room (seats 4-6) with lots of windows and views of the ferry and the main marina. Mid-ship is the galley (kitchen) and head (bathroom) with jacuzzi tub/shower combo, and to the stern (rear) is a TV room with a sofabed. Up the ladder/stairs (not typical stairs) is a queen bed and a sitting room. My favorite part of the float home were the outdoor areas: the bow has patio chars perfect for enjoying the outside while watching the incredible view, and the stern has a barbeque where I did all of my cooking. Everythng you could possibly need is already on board, so your provisioning should be limited to main food items. There is a stereo system on board that I connected an iPod to for background music when we wearn't listening to sounds of the marina. The bed was super-comfortable and there are windows and doors that you can use to regulate air flow pretty easily. Location: Otter Magic is in a perfect spot for vacationers who want privacy but also want the marina experience (readers who are boaters know what I am talking about). Nestled into the closest slip to the shore, the port (left) side of the home is mostly lush vegetation; the starboard side faces the dock in such a way that the stiing area and patio are almost completely private. You can draw shades on the windows for complete privacy if wanted. The cost for this privacy is a ten minute walk into town. What I liked about Otter Magic: NO BUGS! We stayed in mid-August and kept the windows and doors open most of the time. It has "barn-style" (upper and lower half) doors on the main and upper levels and provide great ventilation. ITS A BOAT. I liked the varnished wood throughout, and although we didn't use it this trip, the pot-bellied stove/fireplace in the sitting room looked really inviting. PRIVACY: You don't have the boom boxes or drunken sailors that I always seem to get assigned next to in standard marinas. Cons: We had to leave. Otter Magic was magical."
