Friday Harbor Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Suite

Book here for our 1 Bedroom Suite, VRBO listing (90188). For pictures and booking our smaller Studio Suite go to our VRBO listing (721821).

For SAVINGS you may also find us on the web by googling our name "Courtyard Suites in Friday Harbor."" where you can see pictures of both suites and book a reservation. Being small with only 2 units we closely manage Courtyard Suites and you will often find quick cancellation specials and substantial savings by booking on our website.

The two Suites are often booked by groups of friends or families. They do not have adjoining walls but share a large sunny deck which is great for visiting. We have found that grandparents especially love this arrangement. They are also a great choice for wedding parties or guests.

Both of our Suites have cathedral ceilings with plenty of windows for natural light and views. They are comforably and tastefully furnished with fully equipped kitchens, queen size beds, plus convertible sleepers, cable TV, DVD, and wireless Internet. The deck is provided with a charcoal grill and patio furniture for each unit.

The location within easy walking distance of all the shopping (including grocery store), theatres, museums, Farmer's Market and the fun of Friday Harbor is always a delight to our guests. Within our cluster of historical cottages you will find a bakery next door for your morning coffee and pastries, a wonderful used bookstore, the farmer's market, an award winning restaurant, and a massage studio.

Our aim is to provide you with a place to relax after a day of biking, kayaking, hiking, or wildlife and whale watch excursions. Not that ambitious? Then let the others 'do their thing while you stay home and explore the antique store and the wonderful used bookstore, order lunch at the deli and take it home to eat on the deck while reading a book. All within steps of your suite!

About Kirsten Daniel

Courtyard Suites is owned and managed by Kirsten and Philip Daniel.with the help of Tika our dog (who actually manages a great deal of our lives.). Thus we are always listed as dog friendly. We are long time residents of San Juan Island after many years of fishing in Alaska and wandering the world.

We personally manage Courtyard Suites with the help of our wonderful housekeeper Sabira who keeps them sparkling clean.

Happy Travels, Philip and Kirsten Daniel

Kirsten Daniel purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Kirsten Daniel chose San Juan Island

We chose this property for our business because when we viewed the Suites we wanted to settle in and stay. Living in town with everything right outside the doorstep appealed to our imagination.

Excellent Stay. Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very pleased with our stay. The condo is close to everything and has a beautiful view. The bed is very comfortable and this is a condo to stay at if you want a relaxing trip. Also, use Maya Whale Watching tour. This came highly recommended and we really enjoyed it.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice comfortable place in the center of Friday Harbor within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal and shops and restaurants. The owner was very easy to work with. My only complaints were of the low-flow shower head, which was awful, and the early morning traffic noises which made it difficult to sleep past 5 am. I would stay here again, however.

Owner's Response: Thanks for leaving a note in the Suite about the shower head. We had just replaced a broken one and you were the first gueats (and the last) to experience it. We always appreciate our guests' that let us know when something is not working properly so that we can deal with it immediately. We appreciate your taking the time to write a review and it is nice to know that even though you had some problems during your stay you would choose to stay with us again. Kirsten

We LOVED this place!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely impressed with the rental. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the harbor, a block from the grocery store, shops and restaurants. The apartment was immaculate, but also very well equipped with nearly everything we needed. Supplying essentials really made it easier for us. Thank you! Working with Kirsten was easy, and she is so nice. We would stay again any time! A wonderful experience!

Everything in the apartment was clean and fresh. Great location for walking about town. Especially the bakery next store. We would stay there again if we ever get back to Friday Harbor.

Great Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have an annual tradition of going away for a few days right after Christmas as our gift to each other, and we usually endeavor to find a new location each year. This was our first visit to San Juan Island and we tremendously enjoyed the comfort and convenience of this great 1 bedroom suite. Our primary agenda was to do as little as possible and this was a cozy spot to hunker down and enjoy the tranquil charm of Friday Harbor in the winter. The suite is well appointed, clean, and comfortable, and the location was ideal for leaving our car parked for the entire four days we were on the island. We took daily strolls through town and to the market and were quite content to stay put. Kirsten is extremely responsive to inquiries and we did not want for a thing. The added bonus to this location was I got to enjoy a delightful massage at a business just downstairs from our unit. We highly recommend this property for a winter retreat.

Very cozy, comfortable and bright apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment. It was a home away from home in an excellent location on the island. Kirsten was very easy to work with. The apartment is alittle noisy of your not use to in town living but the location makes it worth it. You are after all in walking distance from the town proper and the ferry. Thank you for sharing your place and would definitely recommend staying here.
