Descrição casa por Temporada Friday Harbor

Garrison Bay Estates is a haven providing the ultimate Waterfront family vacation rental home and Italian Culinary Retreat.

This newer 3 bedroom 2 bath San Juan Island waterfront paradise will provide all the comforts of a luxury resort with all the conveniences of home.

We created this special place for people looking for comfort without pretense; friendliness and respect for privacy; a place to cook, drink, eat and explore.

If you would like to enjoy your holiday in stylish ambient which is comfortable and inviting in the most beautiful area of San Juan Island then come join us.


These four words describe what a culinary vacation is all about. We are constantly laughing together and having fun. Our Hands On COOKING CLASSES will take a couple of hours and the eating might take just as long.

Italians are justifiably

famous for keeping culinary traditions alive and in a corner of San Juan Island you will find the best example of all that is great about Italian food at Garrison Bay Estates.

Our cooking classes will take place in our beautiful country kitchen, using my grandmother’s recipes. All true ITALIAN HOME COOKING. Of course, everything is done by hand, from scratch, in the old fashioned way Italians have been doing for centuries.

You will be involved 100%. Be ready to put that apron on and sink your hands in dough as we explore the art of Italian Cooking.

Arriving at this waterfront 3 bedroom, 2bath home, you will be greeted with a complimentary WELCOME BASKET. Your Basket will include a bottle of wine (in which to dip your assortment of Italian Biscotti) gourmet coffee, tea, olive oil & vinegar and non-alcoholic Sparkling Apple Cider .

You will enjoy the bright open

interior with contemporary furnishings in each room. Take advantage of striking bay views from large over-sized windows.

A luxury sized master bedroom offers a King bed and private deck to enjoy your morning coffee and freshly made biscotti or muffins. Every detail is exceptional with plush spa towels and high thread count cotton sheets.

Master bath has twin sinks, full walk in shower and soaking tub. The second bedroom with queen feather bed has a delightful garden view and the third bedroom has two double beds, feather beds, extra pillows and garden view.

A twin size roll-away bed is available as well as Baby gear, crib and booster seat at no extra charge.

Kitchen is more than fully equipped and includes Waffle Maker, Panini Grill, French Coffee Press, Bigoletti Espresso Maker.

All the 'must have' items including wine glasses and blender. Even cook books.


Large great room with 60" Satellite TV & CD/DVD player, has french doors to expansive deck. Large lawn area for play. Toy chest for children. Games, cards and more. Washer & Dryer available.

From the beach you can see British Camp National Park with its great hiking trails . It is only 5 minutes away.!

Near by is San Juan Golf and Country club for golf and tennis plus clubhouse dining.

Bring your own bike or rent from the bike shop downtown. Launch your kayak in your front yard into Garrison Bay. No kayak - no problem, Crystal Seas Kayaking offers tours and rentals. Bird watchers and naturalist will enjoy viewing the bays abundant wildlife from canoe, kayak or beach. Soak in sun all day while you enjoy the panoramic views and BBQ in your own park like yard steps from the bay.

The expansive lawn rolls to waters edge and is perfect for family games of volleyball, badminton, croquet and Bocce. Equipment provided.

Bring your Camera!

Reserve your escape to the #1

Easy and enjoyable

  • 4 de 5

Karen's communication leading up to (& after) our stay was really impressive and appreciated. We were coming to San Juan to put on a race, so didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the property, but the house was well-kept, in a beautiful location and made for a great homebase for our team.

Wonderful place, exactly as billed.

  • 5 de 5

We can't say anything better than the other reviews and property details provide--we had a wonderful long weekend at this private, serene retreat! We are 2 families with young kids. We had immediate access to hiking and mountain biking trails; took the cooking class which, 2+ months later, we are STILL raving about; and explored Roche Harbor, Friday Harbor, and Lime Kiln. We could see little details where the owners had taken care to implement feedback from other travelers (i.e., there are toys outside for kids now, etc.). Very thoughtful. All in all, a perfect mini vacation, thanks in great part to our warm hosts!!

Great property on Garrison Bay

  • 5 de 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay - comfortable home and great location on Garrison Bay. We used the fire pit every evening and had our kayak in the water each day. Susan provided an early morning treat each day and they were always delicious.

Amazing little paradise on the island

  • 5 de 5

The location of this property gave me the best escape ever had on vacation. Located on a quiet area on the west side of the island surrounded by waters and English Camp national park you can see the water and wild animals right out of the windows. It's just like a little heaven on earth. I don't mind at all the fact that it's 9 miles from the Friday harbor where most of the shops and restaurants are. There are some houses around here but very quiet and low traffic that my son and I had good time riding our bike. In fact we attempted to extend our stay another night but it wasn't available. So I can't wait to come back here for a longer stay on my next vacation.

Resposta do proprietário: I totally agree with you Garrison Bay is a comfortable, quiet, relaxing locating with amazing nature, wildlife and views to offer. We also do not mind the ride to town since there are only two stop signs and max 45 mph. Thank you so much for your lovely review. We do hope to see you again soon. Ciao, Susan

Clean, well stocked, roomy, NO Privacy!

  • 3 de 5

CONS: In our opinion the cons out way the pros because we paid thousands for supposedly a PRIVATE cottage/house. Let's reveal that the owners live next door and do NOT understand what "absolutely do not come over here" means! Owner Susan thinks bringing over a small plate of desserts entitles her to come over unannounced in early am walking on decking and looking in every window! There are NO blinds or window covering on living room and dining room areas which give no privacy day or night! The only way to get air in main part of house is to open double doors to backyard, there are no screen sliders to keep out bugs. Only one tv it's in living room. Mattresses in bedrooms in our opinion are not comfortable and some squeak. Be very careful while using tub in hallway bathroom and shower unit in master bathroom no skid mats or stop skid on bottom of surfaces. The fire pit is in open view of owner's sitting in yard, on deck or house, again no privacy. The dock in pictures is not for renters use.

PROS: Cottage/house is very clean, well supplied kitchen and bathroom towels, large dining room and sofa area. We enjoyed seeing the deer in yard around house.

We left day early due to Owner Susan's intrusions!

Resposta do proprietário: Should a guest notify us with a concern or problem we address that issue immediately. We do hope any problems are brought to our attention quickly and not on Day 6 of a 7 Day stay. As a responsible owner who receives an upsetting phone call from a guest in residence, it is necessary to visit the property and confirm guest safety. Italiani Dolci, fresh baked Italian Breakfast Treats are complimentary and optional. The size of the plate of sweets is determined by the number of guests staying in the home. Each dish is specially packaged and set on the railing at the side door; unless a guest is outside, in which case a dish of sweets is handed to that guest. Should a guest choose not to receive these morning treats, we would hope the guest will notify us of their wishes at the beginning of their stay and not the day before their stay is over. For home entry, there is a side door, a front door and the double French doors leading to the Bay. We have not had a need to screen these double doors as most guests enjoy the openness. There are no draperies on the French doors, to do so would block the amazing view. All other opening windows are screened and have either blinds or draperies or both. Non-skid in tub and shower was applied by manufacturer and has been checked for safety. We do not provide rubber mats due to hygienic reasons. The vacation home sits on a tree lined one acre parcel with an open beach area. Yes, the owners, my husband and I, live next door. Due to the abundance of trees, homes in the area, owners included, cannot be seen from inside the home, or deck area. From owners home the rental home or driveway is not visible. From the beach you can see the shoreline of the Bay, several other homes, as well as English Camp National Park across the Bay. You will also see folks enjoying their kayaks on Garrison Bay and boats of all sorts that come to anchor. The listing information on VRBO and HomeAway clearly mentions No Dock Access from this home. It is mentioned on our web site as well as in the Rental Agreement all guests acknowledge prior to completing a reservation. Any photo of the Bay taken from the vacation rental property will show docks. All of the photos on our web site as well as HomeAway and VRBO are accurate. Susan
