  • Magical!

    "After 18 years together we finally tied the knot, and we chose the Haro Haiku for our honeymoon getaway. We could not have been more pleased and feel that 5 stars may not be quite enough to express how much we loved this property! After a year of planning and executing a large and elaborate wedding we needed to recharge our batteries and recenter ourselves. This location was exactly what we needed! The home is beautiful and peaceful and the location is magical. After a meandering drive off the main coastal road you reach the driveway that winds down to the house which is tucked away from the world in the heart of the west coast of the island. We spent our mornings sipping coffee listening to and watching the birds, and then twice we were able to listen to and watch the whales from the deck for hours at a time. Yep, just sitting in comfy chairs in our PJs watching whales in their natural habitat without disturbing or disrupting them. We were also able to watch whales at the Wildlife Preserve just up the coast. We ate breakfast at the table on the deck, and had glorious seafood feasts at the bar in the kitchen. We spent the majority of our days beach combing, visiting lighthouses, watching wildlife around the island and going on excursions. We gratefully returned to the Haro Haiku each night feeling lucky to have such a beautiful place to call home during our visit. In the evenings we played games found in the entry closet at the dining room table with a view of the night time ocean, and woke up each morning to the peaceful view of the Olympic mountains and Haro straight. The beds are fantastic, and I may be buying a new mattress after sleeping on the Tuft & Needle in the master bedroom! Before making the reservation I had hesitations about the property owner being on site, but it was a complete non-issue. I met Stephanie one morning at her residence and she was delightful. She and her husband are nearby if you need them, but while at the property you do not feel as though you are being supervised in any way. I can not wait to return to this property to enjoy the island again with my family. My husband wrote a haiku in honor of our stay... The serenity Days and nights filled with beauty Our souls have been cleansed"

  • Wonderful Stay

    "Myself along with other friends are nurse who take a retreat once a year to get away from it all and relax. This year we decided to go to the San Juan Islands. The owners were so easy to work with and nice. Their housekeeper Jennifer left a nice note with her number in case we needed her. The property is amazing. The house was stocked with everything you need and is very private. We would rent there again next year but we will have too many people (10-14). We are keeping it in mind for other years though with fewer people."

  • Excellent

    "I can only echo everything that has been said so far regarding this studio apartment. We had a wonderful time and used many of the suggestions of places to go from the owner. Would recommend this place to anyone."

  • Great place, beautiful location!

    "Sawmill is great for 2 people, beautiful grounds, birds, fox, very quiet cabin but close to everything. Phebe & Victor were very helpful. Look no further, stay at this wonderful property when visiting San Juan Island!"
