traveler reviews for this friday harbor house rental

Kayaking Mecca ~ Paddle right from the house!!

Review submitted: October 9, 2013   Date of arrival: September 29, 2013

Six of us stayed in this beautiful home right on Garrison Bay. My husband and I stayed in the Master Suite. The bed was firmer than we're used to (maybe a pillow top could be added), but the room was comfy and quite large, as was the master bath. The other four adults shared the remaining beds and the twin roll away since no one wanted to share. The bed setup here would be best suited for couples or singles (2 kings, 1 Queen, 1 Double) with a kid on the Twin roll away in the Master. The house was stocked with everything we needed and the daily treats from Susan each morning around 8:30am were delicious! She even had an extra key made for us, since we had three vehicles. We paddled directly from the house to Garrison Bay, Westcott Bay and then thru Mosquito Pass and down to Deadman's Bay which is about 6 miles. We saw eagles, Osprey, harbor seals and jelly fish. The house is very secluded and private, and about 15-20 minutes from Friday Harbor. We rode bikes from the house to Roche Harbor and to Sculpture park, making this a nice starting point for those bringing their bikes. The Cask and Schooner was the best place we found to eat. The most popular chair in the house was right in front of the glass doors overlooking the back lawn and water. We were greeted by deer each morning and evening too. The washer and dryer came in handy since it was raining for a few days and it allowed us to go home with dry clothing :) I'd certianly recommend this home to anyone wishing to explore the Islands. Susan was a great host!

Exceeds Expectations

Review submitted: July 9, 2013   Date of arrival: July 3, 2013

I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful stay. My family and I had the best time and we are overwhelmed with the excitement to return soon! The house was perfect for our family. The boys loved running around the backyard and Nathan woke up asking when we could return! You had everything a young family needs and more.

The cooking class was above and beyond as well. The hospitality you, Ed and John showed us was just perfect! We can be an overwhelming bunch and you took us in stride and we truly enjoyed your company. I cannot wait to take your pizza class next time we visit!

Most importantly, my mom said the time on the island exceeded all her expectations. This was my plan! Thank you SO much for making my mom's birthday trip a success. We will be back soon.

Review submitted: July 2, 2013   Date of arrival: June 23, 2013

My family, in laws, and brother in law stayed here last week. It was a gorgeous home with absolutely gorgeous views! Susan was very nice, and I especially loved her treats she brought to us the next morning! Could you please email me how you made that toast with the jelly? The house was very clean, there were 7 of us, and although it was a little cramped, the outdoors was just gorgeous so we spent a lot of the time outside! Direct walk to the beach, my kids loved! Very quiet, and the owners were very respectful towards us! The only bad thing I have to say is,(and its really not a bad thing) in the pics it showed people using kayaks, and boats off their beach, so we thought that those things were there. But we were told that we'd have to rent them if we wanted to kayak..Which we didn't have time for anyways, too busy enjoying the island! :) The beds were very comfy, and the house was very clean! We all loved it there!! I would stay there again, and would recommend this to other people! P.S. Susan I would've loved to have had fresh pasta lol!! Thank you for having us! Meghan Brady

Owners response: Your right, your time on island was too brief! There is so much to see and do which explains why we have so many families returning year after year to Garrison Bay. Hopefully next time you can stay longer.
Garrison Bay is a haven for boaters, kayaking and fishing. Since the Bay has open anchorage for traveling yachts you will see many different types of boats coming and going. Kayaking is easy to do from our private beach. No rocks to climb up and over as happens with other locations. Many of our guests bring an inflatable boat to play about the waters with. Good to use while fishing too.
Several kayak guides are close by with rentals available. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and will show you places you'd not discover on your own unless you cruise these waters on a regular basis.

Our guest response to our Italiani Dolci Breakfast Treats has been amazing. I will send you the Almond Butter Toast Recipe via email. We are having so many requests for recipes we are designing our new web site that will include all of our breakfast recipes.
For the Italian Suppers, recipes are available at each class. Maybe next Time!!!!
Come visit again soon, Fall colors will be here before you know it!
