Recent San Juan Islands reviews
Wonderful house, amenities and location
"We stayed for five nights in September 2015 and were highly satisfied with the experience. A hotel room gets relatively cramped with four adults; for a better price this 3-bed + airbed, 2-bath cottage provides complete and wonderful comfort. The owners built it themselves in 2007 and their pride shows in excellent management and elegant furnishings. (They also own/operate Crystal Seas Kayaking and San Juan Excursions, and offer 10% discounts to guests here.) The house is fresh and luxurious, a perfect rental home, and as clean as can be.
The central location near key roads on the island is most convenient, and lovely too: the eight minute drive from Friday Harbor is full of pastoral beauty along the San Juan Valley Road (Beaverton is less scenic). Lake Margo is not visible but a short walk away on a well-maintained path (cute sign at the front; fall colors visible; bit steep at the end). Note that campfires are not allowed on the grounds.
For us, there could not have been a better choice of lodging. We give our highest recommendation."

"We stayed here for the first half of our amazing trip to Lopez. This end of the island is quiet even by Lopez standards because hardly anybody lives this far out. The property itself, as can be seen from the pictures, is amazing. We wanted to stay here for the whole week, but it was only available for the first half of the week. The owner then suggested we move to his other property on the other end of the island (which is also amazing...see my other review for it), but Nowak House is our favorite."

"This house was perfect for our family with two small kids. It was very clean and well taken care of, the area was very quiet, and the short walk down to the Marina was fun and useful. Our whole family loved staying there. We appreciated the games and movies that were there! Tom was very clear in his directions and communications."

"We were a party of eight with three children. The bunk beds were perfect for our two nine year olds. They had a "suite " with their bunk beds adjoining their favorite aunt from New York. They had slumber parties and a "dust bunny make-up party." The water was soothing and the wrap around deck was wonderful. There is a closet full of board games. The kitchen was highly functional. Over the years we have rented many properties on Orcas and this one was one of the best."
