The perfect place on San Juan

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful setting with an awesome studio apartment and wonderful hosts. Only stayed three nights - a couple of more would have been better. The owners, Bill and Maryann are super nice - wish we had more time to visit with them. Our trip was planned last minute so most hotels were full and/or really expensive. Went to VRBO and found this gem. Great value, roomy, clean, looks almost new. When we go back to San Juan, this will be the first place we will check. I cannot imagine a better place to stay for a couple or a single traveler. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this place justice - it is the most well cared for property on the island! You can tell Maryann and Bill take great pride in their home and garden! Apartment was private, comfortable and very clean and had everything we needed. Just minutes away from the Friday Harbor crowd. I wish we had stayed longer and had the opportunity to get to know the owners better - very nice people! Can't wait to come back - highly recommend!

Only thing we missed: no Wifi and phone coverage was bad. Nice if you want to detach but my husband needed to check into work from time to time - had to find wifi in town for that.

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

I looked high and low for a place to stay in Friday Harbor during the high season with no luck. Finally, after checking with VRBO we found this wonderful studio apartment. It completely exceeded our expectations. It was clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. It's a quick 5 minute drive into town. We were able to buy groceries and fix our breakfast and lunches in the kitchen to take on our daily adventures around the island.

The owners live on the property and were so friendly and helpful with any questions we had and recommendations on things to do. They made us feel like family.

We loved our stay so much that we may make it an annual trip.

Don't pass up this wonderful rental for your Friday Harbor visit!!!!!

Great accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Beautiful Island Studio over the 4th of July weekend. Mary Ann and Bill were so hospitible and accomodating. The studio was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. There was a fire pit every night and we even got to use their kayaks! We are definitely looking forward to visiting again! Worth every penny!

San Juan Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful place to stay while visiting the island! MaryAnn and Bill were super hosts. The unit is like a hotel, complete with a welcoming basket of local fruit(Rainer cherries were in season!) and a bottle of wine, only much better. They were very informative about the island and were gracious enough to invite us to a Salmon cookout - caught fresh! Bill even went out at low tide to get fresh oysters, which he then prepared on the grill - I'm a convert!

You would need a car when staying here to get around the island, but it is worth it.

We saw bald eagles when we hiked up Young Hill (their suggestion), pods of Orca whales at Lime Kiln State Park and nesting Ospry w/young at the British Camp.

Thanks for such a memorable vacation and for opening your house to us!

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in this studio. It is quiet, clean and relaxing. The place is bright, comfortable and cozy, way better than the pictures suggest. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful but let you have your peace and quiet at the same time. They have thought of everything you might need and included it. The studio is located on a large beautiful piece of property. We found it to be the perfect distance from Friday Harbor. You get the quiet of being out of town but it's a quick 3-4 minute drive to get to town/ferry. We will be back.
