Reviewer Comments:

We had a great stay, the cottage was perfect for kids - they loved the fish and toys in the bunkroom! There were plenty of towels and sheets. The shower water pressure was low but we're used to that on the island. Also we would've liked a kitchen cupboard/pantry to put food. We'd like to come back though!

Reviewer Comments:

The Cottage is in a quiet location near Roche Harbor Resort and a short drive to downtown Fri. Harbor. The interior space was OK for 2 couples and 2 young children, but a glaring deficiency was that only 2 windows in the whole house were operable, 1 in bathroom and 1 in laundry room, with the rest fixed shut. Operable windows were sorely needed in 2 BRs, kids' bunk room, and downstairs living room. Leaving the three outside doors open during the day helped bring fresh air into the house, but wasn't an option overnight when fresh air was most needed. There were fans provided, but these were barely tolerable and very noisy. An added problem was that only 1 BR had a closet with the other BR only having homemade wooden cubbies that held underwear and socks, but were useless for slacks, shirts and sport jacket. The wooden decks were badly weathered resulting in splinters to the adults and children. Interior furniture was basic and uncomfortable (i.e. homemade wood seating with thin foam pads, similar wood cubbies, storage and tables) and the appliances were old, but working (except for finicky oven controls). San Juan Property Mngt. was very professional and helpful and quickly repaired a broken shower while we were there. We would rent from them again, but not this house.

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage was very clean and in good condition. It felt very remote and peaceful, yet still easily accessible from Friday Harbor. The kids loved the bunk beds and yard. The kitchen was well-equiped, although we could have used more silverware. The lack of curtains on the windows and inability to open most of the windows was unfortunate, and the lack of screens on the doors allowed bugs to get in. I would give it 5 stars if they installed curtains or blinds, at least in the bedrooms, a lock on the bathroom door, and screens on the doors. Wifi would also be nice.

Great place. Beautiful house and location. One think to improve: 1 bathroom that can't be locked was not enough for a party of 8.

What a great house! Very quiet. It needs a non-stick frying pan, dish towels, bbq tools, tongs, and a comfy couch.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house and it was perfect for our family getaway. We did a day hike right from the house to the top of Mt Young followed by fresh oysters from Westcott Bay - delicious. The house was generally well equipped but a kettle for boiling water for tea and some wine glasses would have been appreciated.
