Not much for property. There's no land to hike on. The whale watching beach is a short distance away

Beautiful place to stay. Very quiet & clean.

My family loved it & it's an easy drive to Friday harbor.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying, we are picky! House was great. All of the rooms had plenty of space, were decorated nicely, and well kept. We did not use the kitchen as we enjoyed all of our meals out but it did appear to be well stocked and in nice shape. House is very bright. Visiting from Houston we were not used to seeing the sun at 5:15 in the morning but it was a nice change! The weather was warm the days we were on the island but we found the house to stay comfortable (with all of the windows) and did not need to run an air conditioner.

We enjoyed being away from Friday Harbor though it is just a short car ride into town. We were nearby Maya's Whale Watching @ Snug Harbor and really enjoyed their tour. We were just a short drive to Lime Kiln Point Park (beautiful), Roche Harbor, walked through the English Camp, visited the Whale Museum, and enjoyed great meals at Friday Harbor.

The only slightly awkward part is the chair lift up the stairs. It does make the stairway a bit tight but we generally used the steps up the side to the deck (especially when loading and unloading luggage.

All in all the house is a beautiful as the pictures, bathrooms are nicely done and spacious, house is bright and welcoming, large windows give great views, and the beds were very comfortable.

Highly recommend this house!

Beautiful property but unreasonable check out expectations

  • 3 of 5

This property is beautiful- newly renovated and fully stocked with everything you need. It's upstairs from the owner's sister who was friendly and had a small dog. The owner was very responsive prior to our arrival. There's a big deck with a partial view of the water that we spent evenings on. It's over in Snug Harbor so in the quieter section of the islands but just a short 20min or so into Friday Harbor.

The reason for the 3 stars is the check out procedures. We found a checklist in the binder outlining what was expected and it went way beyond the norm. We have stayed in many rental places over the years and have never been requested to do more than strip beds & start the dishwashers. But here, the owner expected us to do a full cleaning, including scrub the toilets! Apparently we did not clean appropriately because I just got an email asking to deduct the additional cleaning fee from the security deposit. When I asked further about it, she said it was because we ended up having more than the expected # of people with us and therefore the place required more cleaning. The # of people is true- my 13yr old nephew ended up joining- so we had 5(ish) adults instead of 4 (us and my elderly inlaws) plus our 18month old daughter & dog (which we got approval on prior to bringing him and very willingly paid the pet fee for). It wasn't exactly a wild party and we didn't even cook in the kitchen. When we left, we followed the checked list and vaccuumed the full place, wiped down both bath tubs (only 1 was used) & all sinks, cleaned the toilets, wiped all stainless appliances, wiped the slider & windows in the living room, etc. Admittedly we ran out of time to finish the laundry before heading to our ferry reservation. Maybe that was the issue? Regardless, renter beware, it's a great place but you have to clean your own toilets.

Owner's Response: We do not charge in advance for cleaning like most vacation rentals. SELF CLEANING IS OPTIONAL, you can choose to let us any time it takes over 2 hours You may choose to self-clean, including washing/drying linens, we will make the beds & hang the towels. 1st-2 hours incl. in your rent. If additional cleaning is required, the actual cost will be deducted from your security deposit at small fee. In your case only 1 hour additional was necessary, thus a small fee was charged. Much less expensive than most rentals upfront cleaning fees. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Glad you enjoyed your vacation. Karen

Snug Harbor Beauty

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property on the west side of San Juan Island five minutes from Snug Harbor.

The interior appointments were very high end (luxurious) with a nice filtered view of Snug Harbor.

Large garage can easily store bikes or allow wet dogs to dry off before coming into the house.

A perfect size to accommodate two adult couples or a family of four. Ten minute drive to Roche

Harbor. Our two sixty pound wire haired pointing griffons had plenty of room to relax and enjoy

the fenced wrap around deck. For the interior quality of the house, bathrooms, and furnishings,

a very reasonably priced rental. Excellent wifi and satellite TV for those who want to keep in contact

with politics and sports!

Upscale retreat living surrounded by nature's beauty

  • 5 of 5

This rental home is unlike any other we have stayed on within the San Juan's. Normally, for this price, you do not get gleaming wood floors, a kitchen that puts my home to shame, and custom tile bathrooms. The heated floor in the master bath was a nice touch! On top of all of this, you get a landlord who is incredibly timely in her response, friendly, and you can bring your dog! Take a walk down to Snug Harbor and have a latte at the resort or sit by the fire pit. Don't miss Maya's Whale Watching and Wildlife tour, seriously. They are amazing! This home makes a great base for exploring the island. You are away from the "tourist" areas of Friday Harbor, yet close enough to enjoy them, the winery, Roche Harbor...the list goes on and on! Or just go off the grid and watch the eagles soar on the horizon.
