  • Great stay on San Juan!

    "We stayed in this incredible home for four nights at the end of July. Everything was very clean and comfortable, but the view was outrageous! We had a little difficulty finding the house when we arrived after dark, but once we got in the door, we knew we had arrived! It's a little 80's, but quite luxurious. It was the perfect location for exploring the island. It's located in a beautiful quiet neighborhood where we saw black-tailed deer. There are orange-barked madrona trees lining the shore. The living area and kitchen (and the master bedroom) look out over the water and the sunsets are fabulous. The first morning we were there, we saw a mother and baby Orca out in front of the house. The house is walking distance to Snug Harbor where we went whale watching with Maya's Legacy (and saw two humpback whales!). We spent one day in Roche Harbor and another on Orcas enjoying Moran State Park and the Farmers' Market, before returning to this comfortable home. We had my birthday dinner (my Sweet Sixtieth!) of Dungeness Crab and prawns at the house. We were a little surprised at all the cleaning we were expected to do before leaving, including washing, drying, and folding all the towels and sheets, vacuuming, sanitizing the shower, etc.. There was a checklist, with an explanation that whatever the cleaning crew had to do , beyond one (or two?) hours of work, would be taken out of the deposit. Maybe if we hadn't done all of it (and we cleaned like crazy!), only a $50 fee would have been taken out, but maybe more (???) Karen was very helpful when I left a camera charger there; she mailed it back to Texas for me within a day of finding it. Overall, we would definitely recommend this wonderful place!"

  • Perfection!

    "Stayed for a very quick two night getaway. I have rented many homes and this home is everything I love in a vacation rental. Immaculate, comfortable and amazing views. I love to be able to get to a home and feel comfortable right away. The outdoor living space is spectacular. The bald eagles and the deer were amazing to watch. Marcie was so easy to deal with from the start. I Had a very small problem when we got there and she was available by phone immediately and we had it solved right away. I just wish I didn't live so far away so I could spend more time at this fabulous place!!"

  • Very pleasant and peaceful.

    "The owner's are exceptional and live right next door if we had any questions etc.. The property is located in what was a perfect location for us, a few minutes from Friday Harbor and very near the road to Roche Harbor. The home is incredibly spacious and one was the only property we were able to locate with much needed air conditioning. We stayed for six of the hottest days of the summer and needed the air to sleep at night. We couldn't recommend the owner's, Ken and Bonnie more highly. Wonderful people!"

  • We LOVED it!

    "The five of us (ages 2 to 68) were in absolute heaven. On day two of a visit a huge Orca whale almost joined us for coffee on the rocks directly behind the house. It was incredible. Five of the seven days we stayed here the Orcas (and a humpback) cruised back and forth behind the house making it really hard to care about going anywhere else or do anything but watch them. When the Orcas did give us a break we walked up the driveway picking blackberries for a pie, visited nearby beaches (where a fox decided to crash our picnic), and went for runs on the trails....all of which was wonderful...but the best was getting back to our San Juan Island "home." The house, the yard, and rocks behind the house were are favorite spots. Complete privacy with the perfect view. I'm keeping this review short as others have said it all so well - but, I did want to say ....after seeing the island and other spots to stay .....we could not have been happier with our choice to stay here and were sad to leave, Enjoy! Caveat : obviously, depending on the time of year you go and luck....I can't promise you Orcas watching like we experienced"
