Guestbook comments from the manager

Sue & Ed:

We all just wanted to say thank you so much for your hospitality. We were thrilled when we walked into your lovely home ----the care you put into making sure your guests are comfortable is very clear. We loved the cooking class & can't wait to 'wow' our friends back home with our new culinary skills!

The firewood was very appreciated too -- Aaron couldn't wait to get out there and get it started last night.

So----thank you again for making our stay on San Juan so memorable/comfortable/special.

P.S. we saw about 2 dozen whales yesterday, we tracked them for about 3 hours!

Awesome trip -- this place is great!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying at this home and it was absolutely wonderful! We have a toddler and newborn so it was great having a big mud room/laundry room for all of our gear (car seat, stroller, coats, boots, etc.). The decor was super cute and we appreciated how clean it was. Karen, the property manager, was easy to get a hold of and she made sure our stay was perfect! There is even a binder that has information about nearby stores and restaurants. We love how friendly the locals are and how many activities there are to do.

The San Juans are known for great vacations in the summer, but this rental hit a home-run for a winter getaway. We enjoyed sunshine for most of the days as we explored Roche and Friday Harbor. The one day we stayed inside we got snow which was really fun for our son, but also so gorgeous to see. We also saw deer and a fox while we were eating breakfast!

We are already planning our next trip back and I may even plan a trip with just my girlfriends! This place is wonderful!

Wonderful home on San Juan Island

  • 5 of 5

My family and sister arrived when dark but there is a motion activated light outside and entry into the home was very easy. It was nice to see a welcome sign with my name on it taped to the front door. Everything in the home is very clean, up to date and functioned well. The beds were big and comfortable. My kids and I enjoyed the puzzles and games in the home. The weather was too wet while we were there to take advantage of the pretty outdoor space but in the summer I'm sure we would have enjoyed it more. One of the big reasons I rented this home was there was not a huge cleaning fee like many of the other homes on San Juan Island. We woke up late on our check out date so I didn't get to clean up as much as I wanted but there still was a minimal cleaning fee charged and our deposit was refunded to us quickly. I am very happy with our stay here and hope to return in the future.

Wonderful relaxing home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving here and loved every minute. There was ample space, it was tranquil and clean. We had issues with the wifi not working but Karen was quick to help us resolve the problem. The location was perfect, remote and right by the water, and only a short 15-20 minute drive to town, which was exactly what we were hoping for. We would definitely stay here again!

Loved Everything About This Property, Under New Management, we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is inviting, relaxing, and a delight to the senses. The new manager, Karen, did a great job communicating with us and we noticed the house has some beautiful new changes, too. It was so comfortable and spacious - and we totally got into vacation mode with the perfect beach house decor. We had complete peace and privacy - just loved every minute we were there. Our kids really liked seeing the deer come through the backyard every day, plus they saw seals, bald eagles, and a raccoon family! My husband caught a huge salmon, and we all got to see a resident pod of orca whales during our stay. That was thrilling! We went to Roche Harbor almost every day for the addicting donuts and Bocci ball, plus my husband and I enjoyed a super romantic dinner one evening at the beachfront restaurant. We plan to come back next summer when the swimming pool is open. Can't wait! The weather was beautiful almost every moment so we enjoyed a ton of outdoor time at the house and over at English Camp too, but even the one day it rained, there were plenty of toys and games to keep everyone happy, and the wildlife still came by the windows so we still got to soak up the beauty and excitement even when we were indoors. When you stay here, you will not want to leave! We seriously wish we could have stayed longer.

The new owners have just done such a great job of making this the perfect beach house vacation spot. We made memories that will last a lifetime and we definitely plan to come back every year. This property was everything we hoped for our San Juan Island get away.

Roche Harbor Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was amazing....and then there was the view from the living room! There were six of us....4 adults & 2 children....plenty of room for all. We used the fire pit 2 nights.....had to share with the deer that came to check us out....and we saw a fox in the yard. The only drawback was the cleaning policy.....a cleaning fee was not included in the rental....and I didn't understand the options. So be sure you understand that before you book. I would definitely stay there again....Thank You for a wonderful experience on San Juan Island.

Easy and enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Karen's communication leading up to (& after) our stay was really impressive and appreciated. We were coming to San Juan to put on a race, so didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the property, but the house was well-kept, in a beautiful location and made for a great homebase for our team.
