Another great stay
We’ve stayed in this home several times. A very tranquil setting. Totally relaxing. We had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay.
Idyllic getaway on the water!
Very comfortably appointed and perfectly tucked away off a quiet road, the Pear Point location feels like you're completely alone with the sunrise and the harbor seals. In fact, it's just down the road from a surprisingly well-supplied grocery, a very good bookstore, and most important, the San Juan Island bakery. We went daily; sometimes twice.
The house was fully equipped for folks who like to cook, and the decks in back provide dozens of spots to relax with coffee and a book. A cozy fire in the wood stove at night, and there's not much more one could ask!
Overall, we had a great stay....But,
Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at this nice residence located in Friday Harbor about 8-10mns from the town itself. We enjoyed the sunrise every morning there with beautiful views on the water. The house is well secluded and private. Evrything was clean. We had a full kitchen + washer/dryer.
We would, however, suggest the following:
1) Make sure the entrance to the residence is way better marked and well-lit. When we came in, it was late in the evening and we had a vry hard time finding the netrance to the driveway to the residence. The house is tucked in all the way inside, as thre is a very long driveway to get there. Need better lighting and better signs to indicate the location of the residence to guide you to get in the driveway itself then to the residence.
2) The furnitures in the home are way too old and obsolete. No real entertainment, since the TV has very limited programming, if you decide to stay in to chill out 1 day or so, before heading out on your journey in Friday Harbor. For the cost of renting this place for a week or so, we think that the furniture altogether needs major update/upgrade. TV is very small. A nice flat screen with major programming is necessary.
3) Cell phone reception is not stable, if you have Verizon wireless. Better reception with T-Mobile. Weird, since Verizon is supposed to be the "jewel of the crown" when it comes to cell service.
All in All, we had a nice stay in the San Juans, as we were able to visit all 3 islands with our base in Friday Harbor: Had great time in Orcas and Lopez Island as well.
Well worth visiting.
Another beautiful anniversary get away
This is second time my husband and I have rented this wonderful home. It is also the second time we have spent our anniversary here.
You can tell this home is one filled with love.
And the views are amazing! We hope to keep returning. We hope to celebrate many anniversaries in this beautiful home.
Thank you again for all your warm hospitality Sandra and family.
5 DAYS NOT LONG ENOUGH
BEAUTIFUL LOCATION AND HOUSE IS FULLY FURNISHED LIKE A PRIVATE HOME. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING AND WILDLIFE VIEWING FROM DECK IS SPECTACULAR.
We spent a week at this beautiful home, and everyone loved the private, woodsy location and amenities. The house is very well designed with a central kitchen (fully equipped) and bedrooms off to each side. The sunny living room has breathtaking views of the water. The photos don't do justice to the location...the deck is just a stone's throw from the water, and you can see 180 degrees in either direction. We loved watching the kayakers, ferry boats, sail boats, bald eagles, seals, and dolphins. The hardest decision was just figuring out where to sit and put your feet up! We plan on returning next summer as there's so much to do on the island. And we will certainly stay at this lovely property again.
