About Kristy & Charles Herrick

Charles and Kristy Herrick live in Issaquah, Washington just east of Seattle in the foothills. Charles does relief work in Africa, India and Afghanistan as well as executive work in the IT industry. He is an author and several of his books are available for reading and a complimentary copy of his book Breath of Kenya is given to our guests as a way of saying thank you. Kristy is an avid gardener. She raises llamas and a bulldog named Bullard. She weaves, spins and knits. Bullard does nothing.

Kristy & Charles Herrick purchased this house in 1997

Why Kristy & Charles Herrick chose Friday Harbor

Wonderful seclusion just an hour's ferry ride from Anacortes. San Juan is quaint and a bit yesteryear. Friday Harbor is a small town with just about everything you need except for franchise stores. San Juan gets about a third of the rainy days of Seattle. The main road is only a mile away and it's a calm rural road which is great for running, walking or bike riding. Turning right just before the winery and heading down a tree arched road we fell in love with our 6 acres of paradise. It is perhaps the finest piece of property on the Island.

What makes this house unique

Seclusion. Fishing, crabbing, and tide pool viewing. Unparalleled bird and wildlife viewing. Waterfront cookouts. Water, wonderful view of other islands and Mt. Baker.

Beyond beautiful and amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every precious moment at this beautiful home with the breathtaking scenery. The home had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer! We enjoyed a campfire one evening. We also explored the beach at low tide and savored the fresh air during high tide. Myself, husband, 12 year old son & 11 year old daughter loved our stay here & we were so sad to leave. We cannot wait to return. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The views from inside the house and outside are gorgeous. The location to Friday Harbor was so convenient. We went exploring at American and English Camps and shopping in Friday Harbor. We went on two whale watching trips and experienced the amazing orcas and beautiful Pacific White Sided Dolphins!!! Thank you so so much to Kristy and Charles for sharing your amazing home and property !!! We look forward to a return trip!

Comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from our trip to the San Juan Islands. No need to look any further for a place to stay, this vacation home had every thing one could ask for. We really felt at home here! We brought our 2 year old with us and were a little worried about the spiral stair case and loft, so we brought a baby gate and set it up, worked like a charm!
There are too many amenities to list here! Beautiful serene setting close to town, on the east side of the island so the weather wasn't too extreme. Definitely recommend this hidden little gem to young and old alike!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5
This was just what we needed. So private and secluded but close to Friday Harbor. The house and especially the kitchen is so well equipped. Even though it was December we were blessed with nice weather. The stars were amazing! Unfortunately we had high tides so we couldn't walk on the beach but did have a fire in the fire pit. We would definitely come back. This a keeper!

Great views, Firepit, Sounds of Birds and Nature.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this place was splendid. This place is fully equipped with all your kitchen and household needs and has beautiful views of the water. Nothing beats morning coffee on the patio or even meals. We even utilized the fire pit outside to have a camp fire with smores. The Kings Market is close by for all your grocery needs and prices are at par with even big gorcery stores. Great wine selection as well and for some reason even the meats were more tender.
The nights are great under the stars and with access to a fireplace and electrical heating, this place is very cozy indeed. Very well kept and resourceful. We would definitely be back with friends possibly near the XMAS month.

Perfect for baby and dog

  • 5 of 5
We came here for our first family vacation with our 4 months old daughter and this house was perfect. The house is very clean and it is well stocked. It had everything we needed for cooking and BBQing.The view of the water is beautiful from sunrise to sunset. We love that it was only a short drive into town to pickup groceries and movies. We can't wait to come back.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
Great stay! We all loved it! Our family of two adults, two kids (9 and 11) and our dog had a wonderful time. Great views from the house, nice little beach close by, lots to do on the island and a great place to relax. We saw deer outside the house every day. Easy drive to Friday harbor for shopping and restaurants. I will recommend this property to any friend or relative.
