About Anna Maria de Freitas

.Both Anna Maria and Dave are no strangers to hospitality. For the past 10 years, we have owned the Harrison House Suites and Tucker House Inn, two award-winning distinctive properties down the street from the Sunshine Suite on beautiful San Juan Island.

Before moving to the Islands in 2005, Dave worked as a software engineer and Anna Maria in public broadcasting. They worked and played hard. What drew them to the Island is the rural community and active outdoor life style.

Both Anna Maria and Dave are certified scuba instructors and enjoy many other outdoor activities including golfing, hiking, gardening and downhill skiing. Anna Maria is a classically trained flutist. Dave is a pilot. He puts his hobby to good use year round by flying off island regularly to provision the Inns and the Sunshine Suite vacation rental

Anna Maria de Freitas purchased this condo in 2010

Just right

  • 5 of 5

The location of the facility is great and is within walking distance of the ferry and a bunch of places to eat. Clean facility with washer dryer inside. This is on the 2nd floor of a building but never heard any noise from the outside. With the island so beautiful, who wants to stay indoors anyway.

Owner's Response: Anand, Thank you for your detailed review. The Sunshine Suite is such a great value in the heart of Friday Harbor. During late spring and summer Saturdays, the island's food producers and artisans bring their wares to the farmer's market, located just next door to the suite. We hope you can come again for a longer stay! Warmest regards, Shelley & The San Juan Island Inn Collection Team

Cute, Clean & Conveniently located in town

  • 5 of 5

The Sunshine Suite was a perfect solution for our six friends & family that needed a place to lay their heads after joining us for New Years. They reported that all three beds, even the hide-a-bed, were very comfortable. The unit is laid out and decorated very nicely to match the charm of the building architecture - well done!. Thank you for being accommodating.

Friday Harbor is located on beautiful San Juan Island, Washington located in an archipelago of 170 islands in the Salish Sea between Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria. Friday Harbor, is a picture-perfect historic seaport surrounded by spectacular mountain and marine views. With a natural grandeur that combines salty breezes, vibrant blue water, pebbled beaches and fragrant woods, it is a rare, unspoiled retreat ideal for outdoor adventurers, wildlife enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

Friday Harbor, an antidote to city life, is a small, well-preserved community. It’s a year-round destination, accessible only by ferry or seaplane, where visitors can easily get around on foot to indulge in the eclectic collection of art galleries, coffeehouses, boutiques and eateries. Nestled in the center of a “rain shadow” cast by the mountains on the Olympic Peninsula, Friday Harbor enjoys nearly 250 days of sunshine each year and only half the annual rainfall of nearby Seattle, making it a place where kayaking, biking and walking are as common as driving. It is one square mile of walkable seaside activity, recreation and culture, known for its picturesque streetscape of turn of the century wood frame buildings and popular harbor.

Friday Harbor boasts no stop lights, billboards or look-alike big-box retail stores. Instead, the hamlet offers authentic small-town atmosphere, rich with culture, and a landscape of pastoral countryside and marine views.
