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!

Loved Everything About This Property, Under New Management, we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is inviting, relaxing, and a delight to the senses. The new manager, Karen, did a great job communicating with us and we noticed the house has some beautiful new changes, too. It was so comfortable and spacious - and we totally got into vacation mode with the perfect beach house decor. We had complete peace and privacy - just loved every minute we were there. Our kids really liked seeing the deer come through the backyard every day, plus they saw seals, bald eagles, and a raccoon family! My husband caught a huge salmon, and we all got to see a resident pod of orca whales during our stay. That was thrilling! We went to Roche Harbor almost every day for the addicting donuts and Bocci ball, plus my husband and I enjoyed a super romantic dinner one evening at the beachfront restaurant. We plan to come back next summer when the swimming pool is open. Can't wait! The weather was beautiful almost every moment so we enjoyed a ton of outdoor time at the house and over at English Camp too, but even the one day it rained, there were plenty of toys and games to keep everyone happy, and the wildlife still came by the windows so we still got to soak up the beauty and excitement even when we were indoors. When you stay here, you will not want to leave! We seriously wish we could have stayed longer.

The new owners have just done such a great job of making this the perfect beach house vacation spot. We made memories that will last a lifetime and we definitely plan to come back every year. This property was everything we hoped for our San Juan Island get away.

Roche Harbor Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was amazing....and then there was the view from the living room! There were six of us....4 adults & 2 children....plenty of room for all. We used the fire pit 2 nights.....had to share with the deer that came to check us out....and we saw a fox in the yard. The only drawback was the cleaning policy.....a cleaning fee was not included in the rental....and I didn't understand the options. So be sure you understand that before you book. I would definitely stay there again....Thank You for a wonderful experience on San Juan Island.

Easy and enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Karen's communication leading up to (& after) our stay was really impressive and appreciated. We were coming to San Juan to put on a race, so didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the property, but the house was well-kept, in a beautiful location and made for a great homebase for our team.

Wonderful place, exactly as billed.

  • 5 of 5

We can't say anything better than the other reviews and property details provide--we had a wonderful long weekend at this private, serene retreat! We are 2 families with young kids. We had immediate access to hiking and mountain biking trails; took the cooking class which, 2+ months later, we are STILL raving about; and explored Roche Harbor, Friday Harbor, and Lime Kiln. We could see little details where the owners had taken care to implement feedback from other travelers (i.e., there are toys outside for kids now, etc.). Very thoughtful. All in all, a perfect mini vacation, thanks in great part to our warm hosts!!

Great property on Garrison Bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay - comfortable home and great location on Garrison Bay. We used the fire pit every evening and had our kayak in the water each day. Susan provided an early morning treat each day and they were always delicious.
