Lovely home and location! With one negative surprise.

  • 4 of 5

This house and property were really lovely! The location was spectacular! The owners did a wonderful job of incorporating good quality & beautiful furnishings (A table made from a solid piece of wood) as well as smart and whimsical objects in the yard (a chairlift as a swing, a rain barrel recovery system, etc.). We thoroughly enjoyed our time there! We also appreciated the opportunity to bring our pup on the vacation with us, and were fastidious in cleaning up after him so it would be just as lovely for the next person. There is only 1 neighbor, with the Oyster farm on the other side (which was closed for the season when we were there), so it was very private.

Although we were there during a rainy patch, we were able to use the adjacent trails which run all the way from the Oyster farm (next door) to the British Camp. They are lovely, well maintained trails which are perfect for walking dogs. This location is a gem!

The property does not have Wifi, which we loved for our vacation. The TV offerings (satellite?) were sufficient, and we brought lots of games to play together (there were a few there, also). Cell phone coverage was fine.

The one negative surprise that we encountered was a $50 charge for not emptying the dishwasher before we departed. There was confusing signage between the "house rules" and a sign on the refrigerator, so we felt this charge was rather steep, unexpected, and not like anything that we had encountered at any other rental (you generally just have to start the dishwasher before leaving). After two iterations with the owners (they refused at first), they refunded our deposit. We sincerely hope that they will update either their house rules or their cleaning process so that others aren't unpleasantly surprised as we were. We could have also used a few more & fresher washcloths. Three washcloths were supplied for 3 people for 3 days.

Overall, i would recommend it, and would also be happy to go back!

Quiet, Clean & Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The location is very good; out of town and end of road privacy. Our stay was during the off season so we did not get to enjoy the Oyster Company next door. That looked like it might be fun. We found the distillery across the bay - that was a fun surprise! Lime Kiln State Park was close by and a beautiful hike. Find Reuben Tarte Memorial Park - COOL SPOT!!

Never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay here! The view from the house were breath taking! I have some incredible photos of the sunset. I could cook every night staring out those windows! I couldn't have found a better place for my mini family reunion.

It was great that pets were allowed and the house itself was spacious and super clean. It was also very quiet at night!

The trail to English camp was right there and provided a great little hike with the babies.

I would definitely go back again!

Thanks Deb! It was perfect!!

Lovely Home In A Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! Everything about our stay was wonderful. Mouth-open grounds overlooking the bay ....just steps away. Starting with the beautifully decorated home. The extras: Kayaks, fire pit, bikes, grill, crab pot, ...the list goes on. Perfect for a couple wanted "a little extra" space. We didn't use the extra house -- a small detached sleeping cabin. It looked so lovely. Would be perfect for teens/kids - who want their "own space".

We would most definitely recommend !!!

More than meets the eye

  • 5 of 5

We could not have dreamed of a better place to stay on San Juan Island. Right on the water but far enough back to feel safe with our little one running around the expansive yard. Everything was serene and beautiful. We couldn't get enough of just staring at the view. Normally places look better online than they do in real life, but this was the opposite! The house completely blew away our expectations with how clean, comfortable, updated, and well equipped it was. We will be dreaming of the day we can come back!
