Why Bette Cantrell chose San Juan Island

I bought my home in 2002 from a local builder on the island. What attracted me to this home was it's location near town, it's casual open style and beautiful south west water views. It has a reverse floor plan with living room, dining and kitchen up stairs to take advantage of the water views.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy sitting on my deck watching the water change colors as the sun sets and occasional dear or fox crossing the property. It's an area where you can sit back and enjoy the quiet beauty of island living with a glass of wine overlooking Griffin Bay, Dinner Island, Lopez Island and beyond to the Olympic Mountains or you can participate in the many activities that our island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bette, you have a wonderful place here. We have enjoyed our stay so much. And - your hospitality is pervasive, even when you are not here. That's quite an accomplishment!

Again thank you for creating a perfect retreat. Blessings!

Perfect! Wonderful home, luxury with comfort, and a wonderful view.

Everything we could have possibly needed was there.

The owner always communicated promptly and provided specific information and recommendations.

The home was spacious and spotlessly clean.

The beds were VERY comfortable.

San Juan is a terrific island, wish we could stay.

We highly recommend!

Very charming. Will return.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint house is in a residential neighborhood on high ground that overlooks Griffin Bay. Beautiful water views from the living room and the outdoor deck. The house is very well equipped with high end things like quality towels and nice linens. It is spotlessly clean. The owner is a local real estate broker who is anxious to see that you have an enjoyable time and that everything is in order for your visit. Downtown Friday Harbor---with the ferry terminal, many nice restaurants, a movie theater, etc----is a couple of minutes drive. San Juan island is very scenic and this house is the perfect base from which to explore it. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

93 Pelican Way on San Juan Island was the most wonderful vrbo in which we have stayed! The home is absolutely exquisite and inviting. The pictures only hint at this beautifully decorated and maintained home. We loved the open floor plan layout, abundance of windows for natural light, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and special amenities. The bay view from the deck was delightful.

Bette was a most gracious owner who went above-and-beyond to answer any questions, make sure we were settled, graced us with a bottle of San Juan Island Vinyard wine, and even provided extra jackets for us to use on a whale watching excursion. We would highly recommend this location to our family and friends, as it was a perfect place for two couples to relax and enjoy the island.
