Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is amazing. There is just so much you can do here and it feels like your home away from home.This is my first time to the San Juan Islands and my uncles 4th time with his puppy. I really needed this and this place really heals broken hearts and mends how you feel. The views from my room are awesome! I always open both shades to get the full effect. I can't speak any higher of this house. Jones's you have a goldmine. Thank you for giving us and those before and after us a slice of heaven. If you want to see something amazing, hike mount grant. I will be back.

Beautiful Home with Art in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, bright, elegant in simplicity home with surprise native american art in every room. Well supplied kitchen with everything in it's marked place. We had a day of rain and drizzle and not a chance to enjoy the firepit and picnic bayside but second day of sunshine we saw a whale at Lime Kiln Light House and a seal too. Ours was a reunion and birthday for six from Florida, Lake Stevens, and Victoria. We slept well, ate more than well and kept cozy and comfortable around the woodstove! Two days is not long enough!

Everything we hoped for!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had longed planned a family reunion and could not have asked a better place to enjoy it. The house instantly felt like a home and we were amazed at how we were accommodated and the ease that we fell into the island lifestyle. We had absolutely no complaints. Loved it!

Great house, quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the house - it was clean, had a well-equipped kitchen, the beds were great, and the surroundings are quiet and beautiful. The manager/caretaker was super responsive, and this was the perfect base from which to explore the island. I would be very happy to come back and stay again another time!

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this house. You will especially love it if you are above average height as most of the cabinets in the bathrooms and the kitchen are taller than normal. We were able to do all the hikes we wanted and come home and prepare a nice meal. You can go down to the beach right in front of the house and enjoy a little water view or drive just a bit to get into Roche Harbor.

Welcome to Paradise ! From lush greenery on hiking trails to incredible wildlife in marine waters, the San Juans continue to make national lists of the best vacation spots. Go fishing,boating, kayaking, golfing and whale watching. Browse the variety of fun shops and art galleries. Enjoy local eateries, which is often based on island-grown ingredients. There are about 80 working farms and many offer tours. You can also find the fruits of their labors at a Farmers Market.

San Juan Island square mileage is 55.3 - population is around 7000.

Friday Harbor is the point for almost any San Juan Island Adventure. Reachable only by Ferry or Plane. Friday Harbor is the Island's commercial core and its cultural epicenter. It is the hub of the Whale Watch fleet as we as home to an airport.

Just a small taste of what the Island has to offer is -

2 National Parks and 1 State Park with county parks as well. The hiking and the views are a dream. Make sure to bring your camera and be ready to take multiple pictures of landscape and wildlife.

If peace and quiet is what you are looking for this is the place !

Jones' Home Away from Home is the PERFECT place for whatever your heart desires.
