Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, full bath, sleeps two

HARO HAIKU is located on the West side of beautiful San Juan Island. New photos are being added to our page as the staging and decorating is completed.

The house is nestled just below the ridge line - with 180 degree views of the Olympic mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca beyond,and Haro Straits immediately below.

Inside Haro Haiku you'll find a contemporary blend of furnishings. The interior lets the outside in through widow placements and large sliding doors out to a full length deck.

The views are spectacular!!

Across the straits to the Olympic Mountains, Pt Townsend, Mt Rainier, and Whidbey Island it never fails to inspire and delight. Sunrises, sunsets, ship and boat traffic, the lights of Victoria, and the Olympic Peninsula, clear starry nights, cloud formations, combined with the sound of Orca whales and surf below. Truly awesome!!!

Serenity and repose on San Juan Island

About Stephanie

We have lived on San Juan Island for 26 years. We owned and operated Lakedale Resort for 18 of those. We are very knowledgeable about what to do, where to eat, and out of the way places to hike, beach or..? We can help you with reservations for activities, dining or self guided tours of the islands. Always available and close by for any assistance necessary.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2005

Why Stephanie chose Friday Harbor

The location of Haro Haiku is the main reason we chose to purchase it; Located on the WEST SIDE of San Juan Island with its spectacular vistas of Haro Straits, the Olympic Mountains, easy access to Lime Kiln State Park (Whale Watch Park), Serenity of the neighborhood (None to close, but not to far), and convenient to Friday Harbor.

Property is 3 acres with lots of privacy and views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hello,

I haven't had a chance to write you until now, but i just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your lovely home. It was beyond all our expectations and we couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it was. (both the house and the location) our stay was glorious and much (or most) of that can be attributed to the haro haiku house. Thank you for your contribution to a wonderful weekend!

-Holly S.

Amazing house with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house on the west coast of the island. The reviews of the deck were stunning and we would sit on the deck for hours watching the strait. The house had everything you need ,Just bring yourself and leave you worries back on the man land.

Beautiful Home With An Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay at this house and would highly recommend it. It was the best rental house we've ever stayed in and everything is top-notch including the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. The view from the deck is stunning. We spent hours out there reading and just relaxing. It's a 15-20 minute drive into downtown Friday Harbor with lots of restaurants. We preferred staying on the west side of the island as it provides more seclusion and the best views. We hope to return to San Juan Island and stay here again.

Too many issues with the water.

  • 1 of 5

The house was beautiful and the views were excellent. One day we had no power for 3 hrs. The next we had no water. The next we had water but no hot water. Not good!

Owner's Response: Dear Serena, Living on an island certainly has it's challenges. The email I forwarded to you about the planned power outage by OPALCO, our local power utility, arrived the same day I forwarded it to you. Our water company is very reliable but unfortunately they did not re-prime the well water pump, which caused the lack of water. Had you notified us that there was a problem with the hot water we would have sent our plumber to the home. We have never had any complaints about a lack of hot water with past guests or the guests who are currently in the home. We would like you to be a repeat guest. What can we do to have you back? Jack and I sincerely apologize for the water problem you experienced. We believe it all stemmed from the power outage. Plans have been set in place to avoid this from happening to another guest. Thank you for selecting our home and we hope you will enjoy the rest of your summer. Kind regards, Stephanie
