Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is amazing. There is just so much you can do here and it feels like your home away from home.This is my first time to the San Juan Islands and my uncles 4th time with his puppy. I really needed this and this place really heals broken hearts and mends how you feel. The views from my room are awesome! I always open both shades to get the full effect. I can't speak any higher of this house. Jones's you have a goldmine. Thank you for giving us and those before and after us a slice of heaven. If you want to see something amazing, hike mount grant. I will be back.

The serenity of the setting is un-paralleled! The home is spacious, comfortable and so quiet! A little farther from town than I realized, but close to Roche harbor marina restaurants and shops. Truly a lovely island getaway!

perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this house with our tween kids and my parents. I enjoyed having a space we could all stay in together, and it was a great location to explore the island from. When we were tired of checking out the state and national parks, we relaxed on the beach at the house or on the great porch. Easy drive to Roche Harbor as well, which has a little grocery and a couple of restaurants...and stand up paddle board rentals, but that will have to wait for my next visit.

Bonus: we slept great on the mattresses. And all the kitchen cupboards were labelled, making it easy to find things in an unfamiliar kitchen. I have food allergies, so I always appreciate having a good space for fixing meals when traveling.

Downside: the water pressure was low, so if you are filling the larger tub, the half bath sink upstairs wouldn't work. Not a deal breaker by any means.

Welcome to Paradise ! From lush greenery on hiking trails to incredible wildlife in marine waters, the San Juans continue to make national lists of the best vacation spots. Go fishing,boating, kayaking, golfing and whale watching. Browse the variety of fun shops and art galleries. Enjoy local eateries, which is often based on island-grown ingredients. There are about 80 working farms and many offer tours. You can also find the fruits of their labors at a Farmers Market.

San Juan Island square mileage is 55.3 - population is around 7000.

Friday Harbor is the point for almost any San Juan Island Adventure. Reachable only by Ferry or Plane. Friday Harbor is the Island's commercial core and its cultural epicenter. It is the hub of the Whale Watch fleet as we as home to an airport.

Just a small taste of what the Island has to offer is -

2 National Parks and 1 State Park with county parks as well. The hiking and the views are a dream. Make sure to bring your camera and be ready to take multiple pictures of landscape and wildlife.

If peace and quiet is what you are looking for this is the place !

Jones' Home Away from Home is the PERFECT place for whatever your heart desires.
