LOVED the Round House!
"my family and i had an amazingly fun time staying at the round house right before the new year. we have two small children which the house was perfect for! not only is the house round but it's very modern, clean, and simple in a good way (which i was thankful for having small children). the kitchen was well stocked with cooking needs - great cookware, knives, gas stove (i like to cook, can you tell?). there was plenty of movies and music to choose from. the property was quiet, peaceful, and beautiful (even in the winter). my kids loved the hottub with outdoor speakers and exploring the rocks on the beach during low tide. we had a fabulous time and will be back for sure!"

"We were excited when we booked this property because of its proximity to prime whale watching locations. It did not disappoint. The first night we sat on the deck and watched the Orcas in the straight. We also had the company of a deer and a fox.
We loved the location because it was far enough away from the town that we did not have to deal with crowds but close enough that a run into the grocery store was easy peasy. It was also a perfect distance from the many areas we liked to frequent.
The house was exactly as portrayed in the pictures. The kitchen was well-stocked and he rooms were comfortable. We enjoyed making use of the porch and the grill. The house was plenty big enough to accommodate the three couples that stayed.
We also appreciated the owners looking out for us and letting us know when the whales were spotted near our location.
It was a wonderful place and we look forward to returning."

"Just enjoyed 3 nights in this very comfortable nicely appointed 1 bedroom cottage, located a block from the ferry and downtown Friday Harbor. For those of you who will be a "walk on" on the ferry and not have a car, it's a perfect location. Right below the cottage is a bakery (although unfortunately it was closed for the winter) and immediately adjacent is a restaurant called the Coho (rated quite high on TripAdvisor/Yelp). The San Juan Island Cheese Company, serving artisan cheeses, wines and breads) is directly across the street (we had some fabulous smoked gouda there), and King's Market is a block away. The cottage was very clean and management has provided everything you'd ever need to live comfortably, including complimentary roasted coffee (not in those little packets you get in hotels which make brown water--not coffee) with more than enough for our 3 day stay, purified water in the refrigerator, dishes, pots, pans, barbeque equipment, washer dryer and soaps, dish racks, wine bottle openers, you name it they have it for you. There was an abundance of plush towels, bedding was clean and warm and plenty of extra pillows. Games, books and cards are on hand and comfortable enough seating. The only caveat to all of these positive remarks is that we could hear road noise in the morning. as the street is a main street to drive down to the ferry line. While winter is fairly quiet, town does bustle in the summer time and it may be much noisier during tourist season which may or may not be a problem for others. Overall, this little cottage is priced really well and we do not hesitate to recommend it to others."

"We just returned from a week-long stay at Serenity Pond, and had a perfect vacation. My 2 young kids loved playing in the yard. They found tiny frogs, slugs, dragon flies, and saw deer and foxes on a daily basis. The house was amazingly clean and organized. Sylvia, the owner, was very responsive and helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in the area, how to catch the ferry, etc. Very charming stay! Thank you and we hope to be back again for another visit!"
