  • Everything we hoped for

    "We had a fabulous stay at Tranquil Cove. The directions and instructions provided in advance were extremely helpful, and the house was well outfitted for our needs. We did a good amount of food prep at the house and all the implements we needed were available. And what a view. We were greeted on arrival by a mother otter swimming in the bay, and spotted one of her babies later in the week. A heron spent every evening fishing in the bay. Several bald eagles, including a young one, were frequently perched in the trees. And to the delight of all we watched orcas from the deck on three out of the seven days. In the evenings we watched 300+ meter cargo vessels coming towards us from the Straits -- and turning north to Port Robert. We used the iPhone MarineTraffic app to identify them: ships from Denmark, South Korea, Japan, and the UK. It was difficult to motivate ourselves to explore the island when we had such a fantastic vantage point just sitting on the deck with a glass of wine."

  • Love At First Sight!

    "We fell in love with the property on sight. The deck afforded us the most amazing views and the wildlife, OMG!! Whales morning, noon and night every day the first week and almost daily the second week, they were probably there but we couldn't find them because of low cloud cover. There was a harbor seal on the rocks just below the deck, a resident Eagle that devoured his morning catch of rock cod each morning and so much more. The entire island is a paradise. Karen and Norman were exceptional hosts. We hated leaving!"

  • Stayed here twice, and will stay again!

    "What a spectacular summer! We drove up and heard: "just leave everything in the car and come see the whales!" So we did, and all across the horizon were orcas, jumping, splashing, playing. You could hear the "thwack" from their tails across the water. Later, when it was quieter, you could hear the "whoosh" as they breathed out. And EVERY SINGLE DAY after that, they came back to visit. As did the eagles, flying fast, then swooping into the nearby trees. A juvenile bald eagle came real close, just watching us, as we watched him. So quiet here, you could hear the kayakers, out for the sunset paddle, down in the water just below the deck. They waved at us; we waved back. It's a big house, three levels, including a separate (and cool) basement deck that wraps around the house). Beautifully furnished, with some whimsical and some spectacular paintings. And you won't believe the kitchen. A super-fancy gas stove with burners so precise they turn on and off by themselves to keep an even heat. And absolutely everything you could want in kitchen equipment, even a pair of spare beaters for the hand mixer (in case one paid gets lost, I guess). Very quiet dishwasher. Hard to find the first time, but easy once you've been there once, so get directions. Adds to the quiet. Such a wonderful time. We've done it before, and we'll do it again."

  • Truly Amazing 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!!"
