Fantastic lodgings

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous holiday on San Juan Island, no small part of which was this gracious lodging. We loved the ample space, the great windows and field views, the excellent kitchen facilities, the outdoor decks, the comfortable beds, and the proximity to everything. The hosts provided a notebook which was a great resource in planning our days (and dining). The hosts were readily available through email, and by phone when we encountered an internet issue. The weather was spectacular during our visit, biking, orcas, and hiking filled our days.

A suggestion/recommendation: The house listing suggests that eight people can stay, but the living room furniture actually only comfortably accommodates three or four. Since there were just four of us, we worked it out.

Aside from that, this was an amazing stay.

Time in the country

  • 4 of 5

The living/kitchen/dining areas are lovely. As a family of 7, including an infant, we ate dinners there and would have loved an adult sized grater and a better veggie peeler and a few more cups and short glasses. Counter space is large and the kitchen is great.

Having the master bedroom on the second floor with it's own bathroom meant the second bedroom upstairs occupants needed to use the first floor bathroom. If you had small children, this would not be a problem but in our situation (3 adult couples) it was awkward. As noted, there is road repair going on, so it is noisy during the day right now. As our first time on the island, we found the location great for exploring north and south, east and west. The deck area is spacious and has ample furniture for relaxing.

Owner's Response: Hi. It is unfortunate that you didn't call us and tell us what you need since we live 5 minutes away and mention several places around the house and in the pre-trip information that we are close by incase you need anything. We will make sure to take care of this. I am glad you enjoyed staying there. For readers...the island is under road construction for a short amount of time this summer to build new new water pipes. This is short term but the whole island is going to be or has been subject to it at some point over the summer. The worst part of it is over near our house.

Comfortable, clean and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

Home was exactly what was represented. Good location, kitchen was well equipped and rooms were clean and comfortable. Had a nice deck with table and seating outside. No cell service for us but home had landline and wifi.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home and its location was perfect! The house was very well appointed with both basics (blankets, utensils, cooking) and extras (tons of reading material, spices...). Gorgeous home in a peaceful (except some road construction) location.

Great value

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable, well kept, quiet, spacious, new home.

About 15min from Friday Harbor. Centrally located on the island.

3 bedrooms plus inflatable matress. Two bath, the one upstairs is only accessible through one of the bedrooms. Big modern kitchen. Dining table extends.

We would have liked more couches in the living room because there is not enough seating for 6, not to mention 8.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestion. We are in the process of getting new couches...its not easy living on the island to shop but we are in the process of it. We have recently updated the house with a large flat screen TV.

Terrific house in the center of the Island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here in early April 2016. It was the very beginning of the tourist season so the island was nearly empty and many businesses opened for the season on the day we arrived. The weather, which was cold and drizzling for weeks, became wonderful on our first day and stayed that way throughout our 4 day stay.

The location of the house is mostly good bc everywhere you'd want to go on the island is within 15 minutes. The downside is that you don't have views of the ocean if that's important to you. There is a small lake right next to the house but we couldn't access it bc recent rains washed out the path to the lake. Not a big deal though bc there's so much to do on the island. Nothing is in walking distance, so you'd have to drive to get to any restaurants or shops. If walking to destinations is important, I'd recommend staying right in Friday or Roche Harbor. Just know that you'll pay a lot more for anything comparable to this house.

The house is in excellent condition. The kitchen and bathrooms are new with nice modern finishes. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 upstairs and 1 downstairs. All are comfortably furnished. The best thing about the house is that it's very open and airy with lots of natural light. There is a great wrap-around deck with a BBQ grill that we used one night to cook up some delicious steaks. The washer/dryer was convenient. The only negative thing I can say is that the TV is tiny.

Angie is a friendly, responsive and accommodating host. Check in and check out was super simple. She also runs Crystal Seas kayaking and offers a 10% discount. We went on a great family kayak trip with Crystal Seas. I highly recommend both the house and Crystal Seas.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are getting a larger TV the next trip we take off island. That was something we were already planning on doing this spring. Also, our house is a very short drive to Friday Harbor. 6 minutes. Roche Harbor is less than 15 minutes.
