Recent Friday Harbor reviews
A special place on a special island
"The glowing reviews about this home are all true. My husband and I stayed here for over a month in January and fell in love with the house, the VIEW, the wood stove, the walks, the eagles and otters and foxes and more. Karen and Norris were excellent hosts - available but never intrusive. Any issues we encountered were immediately remedied - newspaper/kindling for the wood stove was provided, a shelf in the fridge missing a railing was quickly ordered and replaced. Honestly, nothing was missing from this home and we would have loved to have stayed indefinitely. January was a great month to go. It's quiet yet restaurants and stores are still open. Beaches and hills are your own to walk. Animals are easy to find with so few people about. We miss the peace and quiet already. Thank you Karen and Norris!"

"I was on a business trip to Seattle and decided to visit the San Juan Islands. I stayed at this absolutely charming getaway. The entire property was like a garden. My favorite was sitting by the pond and enjoying the tranquil quiet and beautiful views. I will being going back with my family soon!"

"My wife and I stayed at Etta's Place for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We rented the apartment with the kitchen which was perfectly stocked with all of the right cooking utensils. The location is perfect in that you can walk anywhere within the downtown area and are close to restaurants and shopping. The apartment was clean and charming and Carol was extremely helpful in supplying directions and information.
We would definitely stay there again when we next visit Friday Harbor."

"We LOVED this home on the 1st Fairway. We had 4 adults and 3 children ages 17, 15 and 11. The home is beautiful and very clean with a well stocked kitchen. We also used the grill for our nightly dinners. The beds were super comfy and offered a quiet environment. Our family enjoyed the 2nd level entertainment area, playing cards and watching The Sherlock Holmes Series. The guys played golf 2 days. My 15 year old is a dog lover and enjoyed daily visits with Porshe and Piper. The home is 5 min from Friday Harbor which offers grocery shopping, fun stores and restaurants. It's very convenient to the Ferry, Zip Line tours, and bike and scooter rentals. You can rent a bike or scooter to get around the island. We saw a pod of Orca Whales an visited the Lavender farm. A car is not needed for an enjoyable island experience. We spent 5 days in busy Seattle and then headed to San Juan Island. This home was the perfect ending to our Washington vacation. Thank you!"
