Spacious, beautiful house - perfect location!
"Stayed here with 3 couples total and 2 kids. Plenty of room and pictures are completely accurate. Extremely clean house and great wrap-around deck for happy hour before grilling outside. Spacious open floor plan kitchen/living room. Would stay here again!"

"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."

"The owners went out of their way to answer our questions and meet our needs of 8 adults, 1 toddler, and 2 babies. The house is so charming and spacious, with a great kitchen dining areas. It is close to Friday Harbor town and ferry and a lovely ride to Roche Harbor, the two Camps, and Lime Kiln State Park (where we did see the orcas!). The property itself is home to numerous species of birds: pileated woodpecker, olive-sided flycatcher, black-headed grosbeak, red-shafted flicker, and many many more -- including a merganser and a great blue heron that flew into one of the two ponds! I recommend this place for its beautiful nature surroundings, its lovely interior and deck, and its proximity to the rest of the island."

"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!!"
