UPSCALE & PRIVATE WATERFRONT VACATION HOME ON SAN JUAN ISLAND

This San Juan Island home is located on 2.3 private acres and offers expansive waterfront views of San Juan Channel that include passing boats and ferries. During the day, you may also see an occasional Orca whale pod, and at night, the clear skies offer a mesmerizing display of twinkling stars and distant evening lights of Canada. Wild life abounds in this area of the island, and you will enjoy watching resident eagles survey their domain while you relax on the extensive wrap-around deck. Haida House is located at the end of a long, private road, so those seeking an upscale, private, and contemplative setting will find it absolutely perfect!

The primary living area is on a single level and includes a double-faced wood burning fireplace (with gas starter) that divides the dining area and the living area. Entertainment amenities include a wide screen TV, stereo/CD player. The kitchen is well equipped with a large island and quality cookware that will satisfy the gourmets in the group. On the deck, you'll find a BBQ, table, and comfortable outdoor lounge furniture.

Also on the main level is the romantic master bedroom suite with fireplace and deck access. A jetted soaking tub and shower, a writing desk, walk-in closet and sumptuous linens are other amenities guests will appreciate. The two additional bedrooms and a shared bath with shower are also located on the main floor.

On the lower level, there's a wonderful game room with wood stove, television, card table, Foosball table, and pull-out double sleeper sofa, as well as a private bath with shower.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay here was wonderful. The view is beyond description. It's out a little from Friday Harbor, but a sweeping 180 degree view of water and islands from the deck that you wouldn't get in town made it well worth the little extra travel. The rental agency was fantastic, and when they weren't sure we'd have a pizza pan at the house, Kyle loaned us her personal pan and even brought it to the house! We only had one issue, and that was trying to get the DVD player to work. Even then, the agent put us in touch with the owner to try to figure it out. The owner was also responsive and helpful. My only suggestion for improvement would be to update the welcome book to contain very detailed instructions about the DVD player. TV operating instructions were fine. Everything was as advertised and the home was comfy and cozy. Make sure you bring your camera because you won't be able to take enough pictures and you won't get tired of the view. Also, we used Becky at Rhodes Taxi to get us around the island and she provided lots of travel commentary as she shuttled us place to place. She was always on time, very upbeat, and seemed to know everything about the island. We'd come back here in a flash.

Overall it was a good experience. The ceilings could use some cobweb removal, but not terrible. Water smelled/tasted of Sulfur but you must know that by now, maybe update the filter? For the price I would think all bedrooms would have full beds minimum, no hide-a-beds (we had no children). 10:00 checkout time should be moved to 11:00.

Haida House is a beautiful home with beautiful views. The water views were even more beautiful than the pictures -- even in cloudy weather! The location was just right -- close to amenities but far enough for quiet and privacy. The house was so clean and comfortable that my family and I hated to leave. Haida House is an amazing place.

This home is a lovely retreat with a gorgeous view. the large kitchen is wonderfully equipped with even a Vita Mix!! We enjoyed every minute watching the ferries. And, we were able to view the Deer Harbor 4th fireworks from our deck!! A couple minor issues were handled promptly by the management company. Thank you.

Reviewer Comments:

The best part of Haida house is the incredible view from the expansive deck. The resident bald eagle was wonderful to view daily. We also got to see orcas from a very far distance (could see fins with binoculars). We were also treated to deer and a black fox, which visited the property. The downside to the house includes the following: a disappointingly stocked kitchen for the price (no working blender, mixer, food processor), and very limited kitchen utensils; wall to wall carpet in the master bathroom around the toilet (how is it possible to keep that clean and sanitary?); and a non-working fireplace in the master bedroom. The well water had a sulfuric smell to it (had to purchase bottled water for drinking and coffee), additionally it was very "soft" making it particularly slippery in the ceramic tile shower. I did call immediately to report the water issue believing it was a matter of adjusting the water treatment system, but I did not hear back from the company responsible for the rental.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you found the view at Haida House to be wonderful. And we are sorry that you had several items that did not meet your expectations. Because of your review we became aware of the blender malfunctioning and it has been replaced with a new unit. We have also reviewed the kitchen utensils present and are having a little trouble understanding your concern in this regard, as the home has so many different items that we have actually removed some from the kitchen so that it could be better organized. As to the carpet in the bathroom, it is shampooed on a periodic basis to ensure it is as clean as possible. The owner who inherited the home with this circumstance intends to pull the carpet and have it replaced sometime in the reasonably near future. The fireplace was non-functional during your visit due to safety concerns with the chimney system discovered during a routine cleaning that occurred just before your visit. This has since been fixed and the fireplace is once again able to be used. As to a sulfur smell in the water, this home and many others in the San Juan Islands are on wells that do omit a bit of an odor if not used continuously. This minor issue is unfortunately beyond our control. We do sincerely appreciate guest feedback if positive and/or if expressing concerns, as it allows us to respond and make any necessary corrections. Your feedback is the only way we know of issues in our inventory of homes. We do believe that the corrections effected will provide Haida House's future guests with a fully wonderful stay. The folks at Vacation Doorways
