Why Bette Cantrell chose Friday Harbor

I bought my home in 2002 from a local builder on the island. What attracted me to this home was it's location near town, it's casual open style and beautiful south west water views. It has a reverse floor plan with living room, dining and kitchen up stairs to take advantage of the water views.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy sitting on my deck watching the water change colors as the sun sets and occasional dear or fox crossing the property. It's an area where you can sit back and enjoy the quiet beauty of island living with a glass of wine overlooking Griffin Bay, Dinner Island, Lopez Island and beyond to the Olympic Mountains or you can participate in the many activities that our island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bette, you have a wonderful place here. We have enjoyed our stay so much. And - your hospitality is pervasive, even when you are not here. That's quite an accomplishment!

Again thank you for creating a perfect retreat. Blessings!

This beautiful home was better then we expected, the pictures do not do this beautiful vacation home justice... Short distance from the Ferry and town. Extra clean and comfortable. This dream getaway is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook a home meal or enjoy family time playing games, watching a great selection of videos, books and much more .. The view is breathtaking !! We are definitely coming back next year... Bette the owner was wonderful and very accommodating.. First class vacation rental !!!!

Clean and comfy

  • 5 of 5

This place was spotless and so homey. It was also in a great spot in town. Far enough away from town to not hear traffic but close enough to be convenient. The star gazing at night from the deck was amazing! There is some air traffic noise from small planes at the airport but nothing that bothered us. Tons of windows so if you leave enough of them open, the breeze is so nice. Bette was super nice, had wine for us at arrival, and her info notebook was awesome with things to do, restaurants, menus, flyers, etc. We had a 2 yr old and 4 yr old and the house was perfect for them. AND THE VIEW...WOW! We’d definitely stay again.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with wonderful views and everything you need for a great vacation.

The kitchen is very well equipped. The location is perfect, near Friday Harbors shops and restaurants and close to the ferry. The owner, Bette, was very responsive and helpful before and during our stay. The house is beautifully decorated and welcoming. Thanks Bette, we really enjoyed our stay and hope to see you again next year!

You Will Thoroughly Enjoy This Property

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at numerous VRBO and Home Away properties. This one is by far one of the finest we have enjoyed. Bette, the owner, was an excellent communicator from the time of our first inquiry about renting this property though our entire stay. She was a pleasure to work with and a great host.

We were struck by the cleanliness and organization of the property from the moment we walked through the door. We could tell that this property is highly regarded, respected and cared for by the owner. Every inch of the property was thoroughly cleaned. The kitchen was well stocked. The furnishing were comfortable. Everything was in good working order.

A wonderful and detailed notebook included virtually every possible option a visitor to San Juan Island might want to consider during a stay. We found valuable information about shopping, dining, hiking, biking, coves and beaches that made our stay even more pleasant.

This property is clearly a sanctuary with great views. We enjoyed watching the sunset on Dinner Island, the ebb and flow of the tides, kayakers and boaters passing by, the changes in the texture and color of the water of Griffin Bay, the Milky Way at night, and even a shooting star. The deck has comfortable rocking chairs and a very nice BBQ grill that we used on several occasions.

The property is located close enough to Friday Harbor that a morning walk to get a latte or a stroll to one of Friday Harbor's fine restaurants became part of our routine. This is a great place to relax and enjoy island life. It's not in downtown so you don't have the hustle and bustle of tourists and cars.

Thank you for a truly enjoyable stay.

Paul and Kris
