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 to prepare and serve beautiful family meals. 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:

From the moment we arrived, all of us relaxed and soaked in the spectacular scenary from Haida House. We were particulary pleased with how private and secluded it felt. Loved listening to all the bird chatter from the deck and watching the resident eagle doing morning/evening rounds. The house was well laid out and accomodated us nicely. There is a lovely Pacific Northwest charm that comes with the beautiful artwork. Kitchen was adequately appointed but not gourmet. Instructions were clear and the property management company was excellent with their communication and service. Our only complaint is a common one among rentals and that is tired beds and mattresses. The two king mattresses need updating and the hide-a-bed can only accomodate one adult comfortably. We enjoyed many activities including hikes at American Camp and Lime Kiln, lunch in Roche Harbor, and lots of fun in Friday Harbor. I would definately recommend Haida House to friends and look forward to returning someday soon.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in your stay in the islands. We know there are many options you have, other places you might choose to visit, or other property managers you may choose to work with so we greatly appreciate your business. As you noted in your review, Haida House is located in a beautiful setting on the island. The trees and the proximity to the water create a magical experience that is hard to replicate anywhere else. That noted, we appreciate your feedback on the kitchen and the mattresses in the bedrooms. The kitchen, as well as much of the rest of the house has a wonderful classic island feel which lends itself to creating a very homey, cozy island experience. All pans, cookware and appliances are above average. The mattresses, while very comfortable to many, may be more firm than one has at home. These are being addressed with the owners as we speak, who are just as committed as we are to providing an exceptional experience for all their guests. Thank you again for your five-star review. We hope you will return again and give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations! Best, General Manager

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.

Reviewer Comments:

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in your stay in the islands. We know there are many options you have, other places you might choose to visit, or other property managers you may choose to work with so we greatly appreciate your business. Thank you also for your feedback on the house. We, the team at Vacation Doorways, try very hard to meet and exceed our guest expectations but where we, or the property have missed the mark, we very much appreciate the feedback. The cobwebs have been addressed since this review. The issue with the water smell/taste was actually something not unique to this house, but something the rest of the islands experienced last summer due to an unusually hot, dry summer. This is not common. All 3 bedrooms of the house have either queen or king size beds. It’s only the rec room that has a sleeper sofa. Last, the reason for the 10 o' clock departure time is the time needed to turn a house during the summer season. The islands occupy a large geographical area and travel times are slow making a rapid turn challenging. We hope you will contact us next time for your vacation needs so we might have another opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations. Best, General Manager

Reviewer Comments:

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.
