About Dave and Sue Ambrose
We purchased the property in 2015 and began construction June of 2016. We worked through the winter finishing the interior of the house with Sue doing the tile work, stone work and painting. Dave mostly drank beer and watched golf matches :-p We completed the finishing work in October and are proud to offer the house as a brand new residence.
Dave and Sue Ambrose purchased this House in 2015
Why Dave and Sue Ambrose chose Friday Harbor
This property was irresistible to us mostly because of the beach, the island, and access to the ocean for water activities. We hope you will use the two kayaks and the paddle board to explore Westcott Bay and maybe catch a few dungeness crab in the process. This is the second house we have built together and had so much fun on the first one, that we decided to do it all over again.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful sunrises, abundant wildlife and magnificent views across and down the length of Westcott Bay. Walking distance (3 min to Roche Harbor's dog park and 5 minutes to Roche Harbor Marina. Also, immediate access to a nationally recognized trail system. Don't miss the view from the top of Mount Young.

You can tell the place was updated. Was in great condition. Very clean and very roomy. Location was great. We had a wonderful time.
The owners were very nice and accommodating.
We would highly recommend this place.
The owners were wonderful and very helpful. I would love to bring my kids back there
The home was amazing. It was so beautiful in the morning to sit on the back deck and enjoy the view of the water while the deer ate bushes literally right in front of you! The kayaks were so much fun to take out into the water!
A perfect family getaway
We had a wonderful five-day stay at Heron House in mid-April. My family from California came up to visit and we wanted to show them the beauty of the San Juan Islands, which we had only experienced once before ourselves. There were 10 of us (5 adults and 3 kids and 2 dogs), and so we wanted a comfortable place to use as home-base while we explored the island. Heron House was perfect.
The whole house is set up for comfort - spacious, well-appointed and with many extra touches like muck boots for clamming, a smart TV, a grill on the deck and even dog treats for our dogs.
Heron House is situated right on Westcott Bay, so not only do get to enjoy the tranquility that water-front property affords (beautiful views peppered with occasional local wildlife), but the boys were able to play along the beach for hours, building forts out of driftwood and safely exploring a new place while the adults were close enough in case they needed us but far enough away to allow the kids to fully engage with a new environment.
Roche Harbor itself is quaint and only a short walk away. We ate multiple times at the wonderful Lime Kiln Cafe - their breakfasts are amazing, and their "famous" donuts are definitely delicious.
I can't recommend Heron House enough. Dave and Sue are wonderful hosts - they greeted us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We hope to make it back someday.
Great location, beautiful home
Perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of the San Juan’s. Home is well stocked and comfortable. I’ll be back!
Really lovely home!
We had a wonderful time staying at the Heron House. Dave and Sue were really pleasant hosts, who met us at the house upon arrival to make sure we knew how to use all the amenities, and answer any questions.
Not a bad room in the house! Every bedroom is unique and very comfortable, and bathrooms are immaculate :)
We really enjoyed the open concept living room/dinner room/kitchen area, as our group of 6 adults, 2 dogs and 1 toddler love to have space to cook, hang out and play games.
It was perfect walking distance to Roche Harbor, the mausoleum, and other lovely trails.
We absolutely would stay again!
Beautiful in side and out!
Such a beautiful home. We loved it and can't wait to go back. Great location and great walks in the area. Perfect!
