We moved to the island in 1999 after several years of cruising and boating in these calm waters.
Our last visit, we just did not want to go home, which then was Southern California.
We live the island life style, growing as much of our vegetables as possible and cooking from scratch
We love to share our wonderful food, recipes and beautiful Garrison Bay on San Juan Island with travelers.

Had a great time. Everything was great.
You have a wonderful place.
My family and our close friends stayed together in this lovely home over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Gorgeous treats greeted us in the kitchen which all the adults and kids appreciated after a long day travelling in from Seattle. This property is nested between trees and has plenty of surrounding space which makes you feel you are all alone with no neighbors close by. The house is very clean, comfortable, warm and fully equipped with everything two families need to enjoy a weekend away from home. The location is perfect for accessing different parts of the island. I would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking the above. Susan was extremely welcoming, and even though we were out of the property a lot and missed meeting each other, she sent a couple of emails just to check in and to make sure everything was as we expected.
Will definitely rent this property again.
Had a wonderful time enjoying island activities and playing at Garrison Bay. The children Loved the deer who visited daily as well as the toys in the toy chest. Indoor and outdoor toys were available, saved me from packing toys.
The home itself is extremely comfy. Very and I do mean Very clean. We cooked most nights and appreciated the kitchen being so well stocked. Even spices.
The front lawn is massive, great space for all of us to enjoy. It lead directly to the beach where we not only played in the water at the shore, but easy to use our inflatable we brought along.
The fire pit was used almost daily. Thank you Susan for the s'mores kit. Loved the s'mores for the adults too. Italian style and spiked.
We booked an Italian Night and it was amazing. Susan and Ed showed us so many helpful hints on cooking down home Italian food. Not like restaurant fare for sure, so much better and lots easier.
Can't think of any Cons other than the water was chilly, if Susan and Ed could control that, they would!
Definitely plan to return. Great location for a romantic weekend, family gathering or any kind of visit. We were two families with children. Best vacation ever.
We had a great time on San Juan island and did a ton of things during the week we were there. I'd highly recommend taking a whale watching tour with San Juan Whale and Wildlife tours. It is a great boat, can hold up to 6 people and Captain Hobbs is very knowledgable about the orcas and very respectful of them and their habitat. We also went zip lining with Zip Tours and visited the Whale Museum, the National Parks, Roche Harbor etc. The House was lovely and comfortable and had everything we needed to make the stay enjoyable. We really enjoyed the cooking class with took with Susan and Ed too, another highlight of our stay! Thanks for a great vacation!
Our group, all gals, visits San Juan Island every opportunity and always try different homes as we are prefer not to stay in hotel or B & B. We like to cook so needed a good kitchen which this house has.
We Hiked on various well marked trails and arrived home to a private massage that Susan had set up for us. What a treat.
We were extremely comfy, home is very well maintained and immaculate. We started each morning with either Espresso or Cappuccino (machine available) and homemade Italian Biscotti from Susan's Kitchen or should I say Cucina? What a marvelous way to start the day.
We truly hated to leave, but we all agree, we will return soon and definitely try out the Private Italian Suppers and Cooking Classes.
This was our 2nd visit to Friday Harbor. This home backs out into Garrison Bay which is always calm and inviting and is an excellent place to kayak without having to deal with strong currents or fast moving boats. We were welcomed with a "smores kit" which was pretty thoughtful of our hosts. It's also very close Roche Harbor and English Camp so it's a quick drive for shopping, dining, sight seeing, and hiking. Be prepared to welcome deer on the property early in the morning or later in the day as they prepare to graze.
This was a great escape from the hot/dry/concrete jungle of Southern California. There were a lot of deer around which was a sight for the kids. The island has a lot to do (Roche Harbor / Friday Harbor) as well as visiting the parks (English Camp and American Camp). The place was nice/clean/and had almost everything (jacuzzi would have been great).
