Guestbook comments from the manager

Sue & Ed:

We all just wanted to say thank you so much for your hospitality. We were thrilled when we walked into your lovely home ----the care you put into making sure your guests are comfortable is very clear. We loved the cooking class & can't wait to 'wow' our friends back home with our new culinary skills!

The firewood was very appreciated too -- Aaron couldn't wait to get out there and get it started last night.

So----thank you again for making our stay on San Juan so memorable/comfortable/special.

P.S. we saw about 2 dozen whales yesterday, we tracked them for about 3 hours!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again. I've stayed in the town before, and it is a little to hustle and bustle for my taste. This location truly captures what the peace and relaxing nature of the island---to the point where we'd just whisper by the campfire to not disturb the tranquility and enjoy the natural surroundings. Dozens of deer came through the lawn each day, as well as red fox and a curious little raccoon.

English Camp is literally right across the bay, and it was fun to see them raise the flag in the morning. We also loved watching the tide go in and out with the clams putting on their little fountain shows.

For our family, we couldn't have designed a better location! Thanks Karen for sharing this with visitors!

Nice property with everything you would need

  • 5 of 5

Pros: We enjoyed our 2 night stay, used the fire pit and everything the home has to offer and we loved it! Everything was in good condition, enough light and warmth in the house, comfortable beds and lots of pillows for the kids to fight with. We even found a stack of wood to start the fire. There is also a room/closet with games to play if it's rainy.

Cons: Being spring and after a few days of rain, the grass area between the house and the water was soaking wet so kids came back muddy. Also, the dishwasher was rusty and we did not feel like using it, maybe it's time to get it replaced.

Overall a very nice experience, we would come back anytime and recommend it to friends, especially for summer time.

Thanks for having us!

Awesome trip -- this place is great!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying at this home and it was absolutely wonderful! We have a toddler and newborn so it was great having a big mud room/laundry room for all of our gear (car seat, stroller, coats, boots, etc.). The decor was super cute and we appreciated how clean it was. Karen, the property manager, was easy to get a hold of and she made sure our stay was perfect! There is even a binder that has information about nearby stores and restaurants. We love how friendly the locals are and how many activities there are to do.

The San Juans are known for great vacations in the summer, but this rental hit a home-run for a winter getaway. We enjoyed sunshine for most of the days as we explored Roche and Friday Harbor. The one day we stayed inside we got snow which was really fun for our son, but also so gorgeous to see. We also saw deer and a fox while we were eating breakfast!

We are already planning our next trip back and I may even plan a trip with just my girlfriends! This place is wonderful!

Wonderful home on San Juan Island

  • 5 of 5

My family and sister arrived when dark but there is a motion activated light outside and entry into the home was very easy. It was nice to see a welcome sign with my name on it taped to the front door. Everything in the home is very clean, up to date and functioned well. The beds were big and comfortable. My kids and I enjoyed the puzzles and games in the home. The weather was too wet while we were there to take advantage of the pretty outdoor space but in the summer I'm sure we would have enjoyed it more. One of the big reasons I rented this home was there was not a huge cleaning fee like many of the other homes on San Juan Island. We woke up late on our check out date so I didn't get to clean up as much as I wanted but there still was a minimal cleaning fee charged and our deposit was refunded to us quickly. I am very happy with our stay here and hope to return in the future.

Wonderful relaxing home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving here and loved every minute. There was ample space, it was tranquil and clean. We had issues with the wifi not working but Karen was quick to help us resolve the problem. The location was perfect, remote and right by the water, and only a short 15-20 minute drive to town, which was exactly what we were hoping for. We would definitely stay here again!
