Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at Alba Vista for a week over the fourth of July. The home and guest house were perfect for our group. It was a multigenerational trip, so my in laws were able to have their own space in the guest house, and my husband, 3 kids and I were in the main house. This worked out perfectly. We loved the patio that overlooked the water and spent time on it each day- watching the sunrise with some coffee was a treat! Our elementary age children LOVED that we could go down to the beach and explore. In our week there, we saw jellyfish, crab, a harbor seal, a starfish, eagles, and plenty of other birds- all from the Alba Vista property. We saw plenty of other amazing wildlife as we explored the San Juan Islands. The home was very clean and pretty, and was equipped with anything we might have needed. All and all we had an amazing trip and Alba Vista was wonderful!

Reviewer Comments:

This property allowed three generations of our family plenty of privacy as well as opportunities for sharing. We appreciated being out from Friday Harbor while also only a brief ride from town. The view was so beautiful. The amenities were exceptional, including responsive AC/heat, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor seating area, & small private beach. The management company was professional, informative, & friendly. We hope to return.

Reviewer Comments:

Alba Vista is a *beautiful* home in a tranquil, relaxing area not far from Friday Harbor, with a great view of the ocean. There's access to a small pebble beach that's practically private. The home was well appointed, very nicely decorated, and clean everywhere. It had practically everything we needed/looked for. We particularly liked that one bedroom is basically its own little cottage, even with its own coffee maker, microwave, and TV. The only time we had to call the office was when we locked ourselves out of the separate unit, but one person from the management team came out fairly quickly to let us in, even though it was past 10:30PM on a Saturday night. That's superb service. Just a few minor nitpicks: *The queen-bed room downstairs has no door (so you might hear the laundry machines running across the hall) and no shade over a door to the outside (not a huge deal, as there's basically no one around, and you can hardly see the neighboring house, if at all). *There was a minor vinegar-like smell in the air at the beginning. One or two others in our party might have noticed, but it didn't bother anyone and it went away in a day or so. All in all, we couldn't have expected more. The place anchored our fantastic time together on the island.

Always nervous if rentals are represented, managed and maintained as we hoped. San Juan Management was very informative, honest and responsive! Spacious rental with 3 separated sleeping areas! Excellent view of Griffin Bay and Mt Rainier (occasionally). Quality equipped, supplied. Beds very comfortable. Convenient to Friday Harbor. Minor comments available on request.

Reviewer Comments:

Plenty of space for two couples with their grown daughters. Cottage provided privacy & a place for other couple to retreat. Views of Griffen Bay were amazing throughout the home. General impression of property was it needed some attention. Kitchen faucet was very wobbly & needed to be repaired as it was very unsteady while moving the lever for water temperature. Needed a few more pots to cook for a group. Few pots had loose handles & some were missing or broken. Lacked a bottle opener to open wine. No bath mats were provided & condition of towels were stained. Furniture slip covers were stained. Otherwise the home is lovely.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a nice time at this lovely waterfront house. After your stay we went through the house and addressed all of your concerns. We fixed the kitchen faucet and the house now has new cookware... as well as a bottle opener which is essential for enjoying a nice glass of wine while the sunset lights up the amazing view of Mt Baker in the distance. We searched through all the towels and also checked the furniture slip covers and could find no We hope you will come stay with us again sometime.
