Waterhouse, Take Me Away.........
"As I am hiding in my bedroom back in Texas, listening to a house full of shrieking teenagers, I am transporting myself back in time (one month) to the Waterhouse. My husband and I stayed for three nights. We holed up at the Waterhouse except for a few excursions into town to shop at King's Market (we did stop there right off the ferry but needed to add a little to our groceries once we decided we were definitely staying put), antique and used book shopping, our Christmas ornament for our travel tree, and finding Joe to make my beautiful meat and cheese boards (which is a whole 'nother story). We had all the windows open the first day due to our luggage unloading and unpacking but quickly cranked them back down and had the fireplace going, which quickly got lit every morning for coffee and was great to have on at night with wine. We were able to prepare wonderful meals due to all the utensils available and that wickedly cool propane cookstove! At our daily treks to the cove, we found starfish, sea glass, awesome driftwood, and beautiful rocks. Oh, and the grass around the property was such a lovely emerald green! Eagles, ducks, sea lions (at least that's what my husband thinks he saw), and deer came to visit us, too. The house is situated on the property so that all of the rooms have a great view of the ocean right outside the windows. It was great to wake up and look out the window first thing laying in bed to see the water. I only wish we could have experienced an awesome lightning storm and/or whales. I already feel relaxed just picturing all of this again. Suzanne was awesome!! Thank you so much for being so trusting with your property to allow people to visit and enjoy it! We will be back."

"My husband and I just returned from an anniversary vacation to San Juan Island where we were fortunate enough to stay at Haro Haiku. The photos do not adequately portray just how beautiful and serene this home is. And the views alone will take your breath away! The kitchen was well-stocked, the furnishings were attractive and comfortable, the master bathroom was gorgeous, and did I mention the views! You can see the Haro Strait from the kitchen, dining area, living area and master bedroom. Stunning! We chose the west side of the island to hopefully catch some views of Orcas, and were greeted by them about an hour after we arrived and then every day thereafter. Haro Haiku is also conveniently located near all of the main attractions on San Juan Island. There is great hiking at Lime Kiln Park, Mount Grant and American Camp. Roche and Friday Harbor are not far away if you seek restaurants, museums, kayak/boat rentals, or whale watching tours. Overall a wonderful anniversary. Thank you Stephanie!"

"Our favorite couple and ourselves spent a wonderful long weekend at this property earlier this month. We had a GREAT time ! The house is beautiful, secluded, quiet and extremely comfortable. I'm lucky enough to be friends with the owner, so that personal connection was very helpful. Yet, even without that connection, the guide book on the dining room table explains all the features, as well as the dos and donts. Kitchen is well appointed and the photos, while accurate, don't do the place justice ! Highly recommend this property and this location. Thanks very much, Sue and Jim"

"I had the wonderful experience of staying at Tranquil Cove with a group of dear friends. We literally didn't have to leave because the house and surroundings provided us with a great, relaxing weekend retreat. The house was spacious, airy, comfortable and had beautiful views from both floors. The kitchen was well-equipped and there was plenty of room to spread out and relax. We will definitely return! Thank you!!"
