I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Our family of four (parents, two older teens) stayed at Madrona House from Sunday to Thursday (arriving after a family wedding on Orcas Island). It was the perfect retreat for our family to unwind after much celebration and excitement at a family gathering. The house is spacious and has a perfect open floor plan for the living, dining, kitchen and tv room, is very nicely decorated (some nice modernist and funky touches), was clean and easily accommodated a family of four (two bathrooms, wonderful master suite facing water). West side location is perfect -- feels private and away from hustle and bustle of Friday Harbor -- but an easy 20 minute drive back in if you want to do the shops, grocery store etc. Incredible water views from west side of home -- we saw whales twice -- once while at the house, and another while kayaking in the same area. Loved the proximity to Roche Harbor and Snug Harbor. Barbecued dinner twice and felt very at home staying in and relaxing. Only hiccup was a coffee pot that didn't work that well so on last day I gave up and drove to Snug Harbor for delicious coffee! We hiked in the American Camp; took a 3-hour Kayak Tour with Crystal Seas; and ate dinner twice at Madrona Bar & Grill in Roche Harbor (nice service, yummy fish tacos!); lunch at Lime Cafe at Roche Harbor (good; loved the clam chowder); and best lunch ever in Friday Harbor on day we arrived at The Doctor's Office -- delicious salad and kids raved about sandwiches. If you are lucky enough to get the porch you have direct view of ferries coming in. Also went to the Lavender Farm -- fun and beautiful but not an all day adventure. All in all a special place to relax and enjoy San Juan Island! (PS: only reason I gave 4 stars for "property's general condition" was because of coffee pot and I think they could add a club chair of some sort next to LR couch for reading, and I think the mattresses could be updated. Oh yea -- and they need a measuring cup!)
