About the Property

Romantic Suite for a quiet get-a-way and time away with your favorite friend.

This suite is so sweet! I love the space that has been created. I can see this for a couple's get away. Or, with your favorite friend to relax and soak up the island life. It is located 2.5 miles out of town, just enough to feel what it is like to live on this island. From here you can take day road trips by car or bike around the whole island. Down Madden Lane from the house you can visit the local cemetery which is lovely to walk through during the golden hour of the evening. I feel the scenery reminds me a lot of Ireland. The sunrises are incredible! I have provided everything I can think of to make your stay enjoyable, and if not, please let me know because I want you to fully enjoy yourself! Unplug and experience San Juan Island!
Feel free to talk with me about special places, hikes, beaches to visit and places to eat. You are welcome to use the bar-b-que and deck.
I recycle and do not use chemicals on my property.

Car: Recommended

Car drives or bike rides all over the island are so beautiful, especially at the golden hour before sunset. It is magic to see the colors come out just before the sun sets!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a people person. I love entertaining and making people comfortable and enjoy life. I have two beautiful daughters that I love so much. They are grown and on their own. They have chosen partners that add to their lives which I could not ask for more because they are so happy. I had a full career as owner and manager of Moka Joe Coffee. You might find me roasting small batches in my garage. I am proud of this company that we created. It is now thriving as a company that continues to give back to communities they get their coffee from and the communities that buy it. It is now in Anacortes, Wa owned by The Mendum Family. I live as sustainably and environmentally friendly as I possibly can. Less is More!

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
I bought this house as my healing home. I lost my husband to cancer in 2012, this island is where we both were going to retire. I sold everything and my life changed as I knew it. I came to San Juan as I had heard for years, this is a healing place. It is absolutely true. After loosing my husband, selling my business, loosing my mother. . . . . I got breast cancer as soon as I moved here. I have gone through treatment involving lumpectomy, chemotherapy, radiation and am now where I am supposed to be at the right time. This property gave me hope for a new future. My home is an adorable cottage built in 1935. I added the suite to supplement my income as this island is a tourist island and the population that visits would surely help support my rental. I live a life of gratitude and am grateful that you will come visit and feel the same simple life. Less is More! The beauty that surrounds me here sustains me spiritually. Life is good! I am proof that you can live through devastating events and start life again.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
I think the unique benefits of this property is that you can immediately feel what it is like to live on this island. You are in a private suite surrounded by beautiful views with easy access to the whole island. The suite is in light green color and changes colors throughout the day to match the sunlight. Colors surrounding the rooms change from light green to grey to blue to white. You literally could sit on the couch and watch the day change around you with all the atmosphere changes. Mesmerizing! The most incredible views of the stars and sky from the couch or the deck!
