Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Friday Harbor - Haro Haiku

House, 2 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5 max)

HARO HAIKU is located on the West side of beautiful San Juan Island.

The house is nestled just below the ridge line - with 180 degree views of the Olympic mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca beyond,and Haro Straits immediately below. Approaching the house, you pass by our Japanese-inspired garden with a 62 year old Bonsai black pine center piece.

BE SURE TO VIEW THE PHOTOS OF THE NEW, COMPLETELY REMODELED KITCHEN !!

Inside Haro Haiku you'll find a contemporary blend of eastern and western style and decor with a decidedly Asian attitude. The interior lets the outside in through an ingenious use of sky lights and widow placements in the exterior and interior walls.

The views are spectacular!!

From South Vancouver island, across the straits to the Olympic Mountains, Pt Townsend, Mt Rainier, and Whidbey Island it never fails to inspire and delight. Sunrises, sunsets, ship and boat traffic, the lights of Victoria, and the Olympic Peninsula, clear starry nights, cloud formations, combined with the sound of Orca whales and surf below. Truly awesome!!!

Serenity and repose on San Juan Island

About Stephanie

We have lived on San Juan Island for 23 years. We owned and operated Lakedale Resort for 18 of those.We are very knowledgeable about what to do, where to eat, and out of the way places to hike, beach or ? We can help you with reservations for activities, dining or self guided tours of the islands.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2005

Why Stephanie chose Friday Harbor

The location of Haro Haiku is the main reason we chose to purchase it; Located on the WEST SIDE of San Juan Island with its spectacular vistas of Haro Straits, the Olympic Mountains, easy access to Lime Kiln State Park (Whale Watch Park), Serenity of the neighborhood (None to close, but not to far), and convenient to Friday Harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hello,

I haven't had a chance to write you until now, but i just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your lovely home. It was beyond all our expectations and we couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it was. (both the house and the location) our stay was glorious and much (or most) of that can be attributed to the haro haiku house. Thank you for your contribution to a wonderful weekend!

-Holly S.

p.s. i saw orcas from your deck!!

p.p.s. tom (my husband) requests that you contact us should you ever want to sell your home!"

Lovely, peaceful getaway on the quiet west side of San Juan Island

Can't recommend Haro Haiku enough. It's a clean, well-appointed home with an amazing view. Lime Kiln Point State Park is just up the road and it's an easy drive into Friday Harbor or (slightly longer) Roche Harbor. If you're looking for tranquility, this is the place for you.

Perfection! Views, setting & house

My husband & I, along with our 3 children spent 5 days in July at this beautiful house. Upon arrival, we walked into the house & literally gasped at the scenery! You see a wide open view of the ocean immediately as you walk in! We sat on the deck & saw orcas every day - along with Eagles & deer right from the house! The house was immaculate, beautiful & very well equipped. The owners were wonderful & quickly responded to every question we had. There was a beach just a few minutes away where we saw starfish, crabs & every other sea life we could imagine. SO fun to take the kids down to the beach & explore. Its a 15 minute drive into town - for fun restaurants, shopping & boat/kayak rentals. We did a little of everything & yet felt so relaxed at the same time.

We had an incredible week & definitely hope to be back. It exceeded our expectations!

Definitely recommend!

peaceful retreat

  • 5 out of 5
I had searched for many weeks for the perfect vacation rental on San Juan Island where I could see, hear and enjoy the southern resident orca. When I discovered Haro Haiku I knew my search was over. The reviewers said orca could be seen just about everyday...that was my hook. When my family and I entered the house and saw the large expanse of windows and deck that overlook the Haro Strait, my heart skipped a beat. I've never felt such an attachment to a setting before in my life.
Immediately, we spotted orca, and did so every single day we were there. Haro Haiku is in the perfect spot for reaching Lime Klin or the State Park for prime orca viewing, if that is what you are interested, as we were. I wished that we could have met Stephanie and her husband, but we just never crossed paths. We were too busy chasing orca ;-)
It was a truly an amazing experience. Watching the stars from the comfort of a large king size bed was magical. We will return...cause I know I left a piece of soul behind. It was that perfect.

Something for Everyone

  • 5 out of 5
This was my second stay at this lovely Haro Straight home. This time I brought my husband and my adult son, who happens to have Down syndrome and who is not normally easily persuaded to go hiking or sightseeing. All three of us agreed that this was a wonderful vacation. The panoramic views of the ocean, with regular Orca sightings, from the kitchen, living room, dining room, and bedroom made daily activities, including meal prep in the new well equipped kitchen, delightful. The proximity to Lime Kiln Park, my son's favorite destination, was a huge advantage. It was easy to visit all the wonderful attractions on San Juan Island and to catch the ferry to Orcas Island and to Sydney, B.C. The fellows even enjoyed a day of sea kayaking. I have never enjoyed a vacation home that was so quiet, comfortable, and user friendly as this, which is why I will hopefully get to return often. It is well worth the rental amount.

We spent four nights here with our son and his wife. We had a marvelous time. As we walked in and looked out we were immediately greated with the orcas frolicking in the water below. Not a day went by that we did not see 50 or more of the wonderful beasts. The home is perfect with a fabulous master suite and a very comfortable guest suite. Views and over the top and the property is well equipped.

What a Wonderful Place!

  • 5 out of 5
Hairo Haiku was exactly as advertised and then some! The home is warm and the view is one of a kind! I found myself constantly looking out the windows for wildlife. We were graced by Orca whales, deer, fox, eagles and numerous other birds. The woodburning stove is a great way to end or begin the day. I can't say enough about the home or the island. We spent a whole week here and explored every inch of the island. Not only can you watch the whales from the deck, but you can hear them as well! And thanks for the binoculars Stephanie and Jack because we left ours at home. I can't wait to plan other visit!!!!!
