Beautiful house in an amazing location. Very private and serene, yet close to town. Tom & Meredith were very responsive and provided plenty of information about the house and the island. Ken met us when we arrived and gave us a walkthrough of the house. He left his phone number in case we needed anything. We didn't have any questions, so we didn't see him until it was time to check out. We really enjoyed our stay and will try to stay here again, if/when we come back.

Utterly wonderful property, a perfect escape for my family for the long weekend. Tom was incredibly helpful and communicative, providing us with a long list of how to navigate the island, what to do and see, and extremely valuable advice about the importance and urgency of getting a ferry reservation - and how early in advance to get one! The property is spacious, and the view is spectacular. It is silent and serene, yet within minutes of busy Friday Harbor, and secluded state parks.

We stayed in Tom and Meredith's lovely home for one week with another couple. It was the perfect location, just a couple miles from town. The caretaker is a real bonus since he lives on property and is available if needed. When we travel I'm always concerned about the comfort of the beds. No worries here. 2 very comfortable king beds. The iron smell in the water was very strong but the fridge had a filter for drinking water. We saw deer most every day and one brief bald eagle sighting. A beautiful spot to stay while visiting the islands.

Our family just got back from 3 nights on San Juan Island staying at Tom & Meredith's house. #1 thing... the view does not disappoint! Sitting on the deck overlooking the water was awesome. We also really enjoyed the rocky beach easily accessible from the house. They have a fire pit, so we were able to enjoy a nice fire and s'mores one night. The kitchen had any basics you could want which worked well for us for breakfast & lunch. It was vacation though, so I didn't cook dinner (although they have an outdoor grill which we probably would have used if we'd stayed longer). Tom recommended a number of restaurants in town and was really helpful with any info we needed. We actually got a chance to meet Tom & Meredith on our way over (they were on the same ferry) which was fun. You don't often get to meet the owners when you rent (and they obviously don't often get the meet the renters) so I think we all enjoyed that opportunity. They are a nice couple. They have a caretaker for the property who lives in a smaller house behind the main house. His name is Ken and he is really nice. He let us in and showed us around and was there if we had any questions etc. He even brought us some kindling when we asked about it for making a fire in the fire pit. The house itself is good sized. Large living room and bedrooms. The beds were comfortable (2 king beds which worked great for the 4 of us). The downstairs shower (next to the guest room) leaves a bit to be desired, but it was nice to have a bathroom down there and the kids simply used the shower in the master bathroom instead of that one. The house faces east, and while there are blinds downstairs, they mellow vs. take away the light. No blinds in the master bedroom. Can't complain about the beautiful sunrises though. We'd stay there again.

What a great Airbnb! GREAT location! Great house! Tom & Meredith communicated wonderfully from their acceptance to our arrival. Ken, who is the housekeeper, lives right behind the house and was wonderful walking us through when we arrived. Can't say enough about the house! If you are going to Friday Harbor, this is a true jem!

Great house and beautiful location. The view from the deck can't be beat! The caretaker Ken was lovely and helpful with all our needs. Definitely worth a visit!
