older house but some of the best views you could ever find
lots of room in this spacious 3 bedroom house. extra loft with futon bed for sleeping or viewing or sitting on the deck. binoculars furnished to look at the sound and nearby islands and boats and such. Well stocked kitchen - only negative here is that there was one old sponge for use with dishes and counters - it had been used a lot by previous renters. These should be changed out with each renter. plenty of kitchen towels .
Lots of bath towels in the 2 full baths, and there is also a half bath for use. 4 TVs in the house which was awesome with full cable.
House was 70's style and some of the red carpet on the stairs and also the old carpet in the master bath need replacement.
Wonderful location in Anacortes and 15 min drive from the heart of town and also deception pass, 30 min drive from LaConner.
One drawback was the $100 cleaning fee, with us as renters expected to wash and dry all towels and clean kitchen and run dishwasher and also empty all garbages. I understand the garbage requirement but for a $100 cleaning fee, I question the towel cleaning a bit. Nice that there was a washer/dryer in the house.
I would visit this place again for sure.
Carole, I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay. I understand your concerns about sponges which is why we also provide dish clothes. We do not require you to wash and dry all towels, we only ask that you start a load of laundry if it is convenient for you. It is a huge help to the cleaning ladies when we have a back to back cleaning. We also do not ask for you to clean the kitchen. We ask for you to put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start it. Again, this helps in back to back cleanings. These requests are listed in the policies and procedures that you signed and initialed and returned if you would like to refer back to it.
We welcome your suggestions so that we may do a better job next time. Thank you so much for staying at Captain Jim's.
SAUNA! Sunsets! Beautiful, Comfortable, Very Good Value
Had a wonderful stay in this home for work. Lots of space to spread out and have privacy. I think this may be overlooked by many, but Captain Jim's has a great sauna accessible on the backyard deck. Being able to enjoy a sauna at the flip of a switch was something that sealed my experience here. Elisabeth was easy to work with, had no issues whatsoever. Beds were comfy. Beautiful sunsets every night! All in all a great experience.
LOCATION: Be sure you understand that this home is not located in downtown Anacortes, it is closer to the ferry terminal, west side of the island. Merts Taxi helped us get to a fro, just call ahead so you don't have to wait around for too long.
It was perfect
Great, great views.
We are so happy that you had such a great time. Thank you for choosing Captain Jim's for your vacation.
Perfect for our family reunion
Beautiful, well-appointed home that met our needs perfectly. We had a group of four couples and found the house to be quite comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes/pots & pans/glassware to make cooking for a crowd easy. Loads of left over spices and staples that should be looked at before hitting the grocery store! Stunning views from common living areas and large deck. Lovely, quiet neighborhood in which we enjoyed several pleasant walks with our two small dogs. Great jumping off point for exploration of San Juan Islands.
Thank you so much for staying with us. We are so happy that you had a great time. We hope to see you again soon.
Very nice home with a beautiful view. Would definitely seek this property again when visiting the Anacortes/San Juan Islands area.
We are so happy that you had a great time at Captain Jim's. We really enjoyed having you stay.
We really enjoyed our week at "CaptainJim's". The house was well stocked. Our coffee pot didn't work the first morning and they promptly brought us a brand new one. There are windows everywhere and the views are amazing. Only one negative. The carpets are dated and dirty. Surprised to see carpet in the bathrooms in a rental.
We are so happy that you had such a great time at Captain Jim's. We appreciate you staying with us and for your understanding about the coffee pot. We hope that you think of us for your next visit to Anacortes.
