WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME NEAR FRIDAY HARBOR ON SAN JUAN ISLAND

This vacation home on San Juan Island perches right over the sea. Amazing views of the water set the stage for a classic Island vacation - in fact there's so much blue water right out front of the windows that you sometimes feel like you're on a boat! To enhance that sensation, the decor has a distinctive nautical theme!

Just imagine the serenity of sitting on the spacious deck looking over deep blue waters, taking in the wide open views of neighboring islands and passing boats. The same elemental view is also framed in the vaulted windows of the living room when you come indoors.

The styling is casual, warmed by rich colors in every room, a blend of European chalet and northwestern cabin that make for a very cozy environment. The chalet has a three level floor plan. From the parking level, you come down two flights of stairs to enter the home on the mid-level. The living/dining areas face the water. The living room has a new TV and a pellet stove for extra warmth. The kitchen is very well provided and guest cooks will love the commercial-style propane range. There's also a little bistro table at one end of the kitchen that is a wonderful spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine before dinner. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are located on this main level as well.

The upper loft functions as the master bedroom because it has a sitting area, desk, and private bath. It's open to the living room so that the water view can be enjoyed through the windows that extend up two stories in the living room. The lower level has been recently updated with new paint and a larger second TV and sofa in this area. In addition, this level of the home offers a third bathroom with shower, laundry room, and an entry onto a lower deck as well.

Washington Way Chalet is only a five minute drive from Friday Harbor and the ferry landing, where you'll find the community theaters, art galleries, lots of restaurants, grocery stores, and fun shopping!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations, location for beautiful scenery, and overall more than satisfied with the entire experience. We had not been to the San Juan Island before and when we return (which we plan that it will be soon) we will again rent this particular property. Property management arranging for the rental was very helpful and gave us information regarding ferry schedules, etc., that we wouldn't have known otherwise. We were so pleased with everything and wished our time could have been extended. Original review on mgt. co. website, Vacation Doorways.

Reviewer Comments:

The Chalet was comfortable and had a stunning view. Unfortunately our stay was impacted by the smoke from distant BC fires. Unlike some vacation rentals we've visited, the kitchen was well equipped and most everything worked. The location is close enough to Friday Harbor that it provided easy access to activities and supplies and far enough to be out of the bustle of the tourist crowd. The water supply is a shortcoming. The pressure is low and if someone is showering on the lower levels the upstairs shower is without water. Lighting was a minor issue. In one bedroom there was only one lamp with a 20w bulb and the ceiling light in the great room did not work so reading was limited to dining and kitchen areas. If a person is challenged by stairs this location could be a problem as there are stairs leading from the garage/parking and stairs to access the three levels of the chalet. For us the plusses outweighed the stair climbing.

Reviewer Comments:

I absolutely love this place and could have stayed there forever. Just sitting on the deck we saw a bald eagle fly by plus a family of five River otters below. Beautiful quiet setting. This home is lovely and very spacious. Great washer and dryer. Perfect location, close to town but far enough away so you so it's tranquil and quiet.

Reviewer Comments:

The view was spectacular and made the stay in this house worth while! There was a mildew smell in washing machine that permeated throughout basement. We didn't use the it for that reason. This was concerning as well as smell of prior tenants that may have cooked crab as we detected that in the kitchen.
