I was happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was more than helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The Captain's Cottage is on the north side of San Juan Island, near Roche Harbor. It's about 20 minutes from Friday Harbor, the island's main hub. Roche Harbor is a resort with a nice little general store and a couple of good restaurants.
The cottage is not much to look out from the outside. When we drove up, I was a little concerned. The inside, however, is immaculate: updated, clean, and comfortable. The owners have tried hard to think of little things that will make their guests comfortable.
On the downside, the property isn't right on the water, though the water is visible through the trees. It's generally private and quiet - although one night we were awakened at 2:30 AM by the sound of thumping music and people yelling, which was a little disconcerting when you're that far from city services.
We were also given only one partial roll of toilet paper for a three night stay, which forced us to be a little creative. I assume this was a one-off unusual occurance, since lots of other details were obviously well thought out.
We had a great time and would happily return. Thanks!
