This place is serene!
Beautiful, quiet location! It was as described, close to hiking, there were deer in the yard. Immaculate and had what we needed!
Loved our stay!
We loved staying in this beautiful home! Located near Snug Harbor in a very quiet wooded area and away from crowds, just what we were looking for. I would love to come back.
My friend and I spent several days at this lovely site. It is very nicely furnished, the kitchen is well stocked for cooking, beds are very comfortable and it is full of light. The location, a few miles from Friday Harbor, is beautiful, very peaceful, and is a great base for exploring the island.
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.
The pictures are not reflecting the beauty of the house, definitely deserves 5-star.
Beautiful property but unreasonable check out expectations
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.
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.
