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."

"I looked high and low for a place to stay in Friday Harbor during the high season with no luck. Finally, after checking with VRBO we found this wonderful studio apartment. It completely exceeded our expectations. It was clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. It's a quick 5 minute drive into town. We were able to buy groceries and fix our breakfast and lunches in the kitchen to take on our daily adventures around the island.
The owners live on the property and were so friendly and helpful with any questions we had and recommendations on things to do. They made us feel like family.
We loved our stay so much that we may make it an annual trip.
Don't pass up this wonderful rental for your Friday Harbor visit!!!!!"

"We used to live on San Juan Island. Courtyard Suites was an excellent choice for us coming back to see friends for a couple of reasons. It has a designated parking spot. We were allowed to bring our pampered pooch and found "cookies" for her, as well as places that are okay for dogs on the island. It is at the heart of the town, overlooking the Saturday market which is always a fun event. It is between a bakery and a lunch deli, both with excellent food. Most important to me, the bed is comfortable - as good as our mattress at home, there was plenty of air - both many openable windows and a quiet little fan, if you are a fresh air freak like I am. I slept like the proverbial baby, something I don't do well in unfamiliar settings. In conclusion, if there were more than 5 stars, I would give them; definitely a come-back place."

"This Vacation Rental is under construction but has another available house to rent which is incredible. It is not listed here but totally worth the rent. The house overlooks San Juan Channel and has the most amazing views; Orcas Island (Turtle Back and gorgeous sunrises) with fishing right in front of the house!! My family caught a 22lb King Salmon right out front, near Rocky Bay and we caught our quota of Spot Prawns nearby!! This house also has it's own hottub in a solarium, it is a two story house with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Laundry facilities available. The property under construction which is available to use with the rental has a private pool and a dock to dock a boat, also a beach to walk on and kayaks and a row boat to use. They also have two resident pygmy goats that our kids absolutely loved and got to feed. The staff there is very helpful and friendly and will offer the use of their crab pots. My wife and i like to Scuba dive and the manager at Yacht Haven is a Master Diver and was very helpful with a basic refresher course for my wife and myself.
We loved the properties and the helpful staff and have already booked our next stay for our 2015 family reunion.
Thank You Jeff for the wonderful time and the Scuba diving in the pool!! We can't wait to see you next year!!"
