Perfect description of the Artist Suite, thank you!
My daughter and I had a wonderful time in this charming place. We were in walking distance to town and the ferry. We were comfortable and had everything we needed. Lovely.
Pleasant stay on San Juan Islands
The accommodations were perfect. Just perfect for a couple. Less than 2/10's of a mile from the harbour. Walking distance to all shopping.
Unit was very new in decor and a separate room with all windows opened the place. Thanks
Small but clean in a safe area just 2 blocks from downtown
Only a few blocks from the ferry. Good parking. clean and comfortable. The wifi is sketchy but this isn't the fault of the property. The property managment did their best to help Friday Harbor only has wifi available from CentryStink. We weren't visiting the islands for the wifi. Groceries are about 3 blocks away. Good restaurants all within a few minutes walk and the studio is quite in the evening.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
The property was in a nice location; very easy to get around town. In general, it was fine. However, the property was not cleaned well. The sheets on the bed were wrinkled and looked as though they were not changed from previous occupant/s stay, which was most evident by the random hairs in the sheets found upon pulling back the covers. In addition, there were large spiders and spider webs inside. I relocated no less than 3 spiders to outside using a cup in a 2 day stay. The webs on the wall and dead spider in the corner next to the coat tree indicate that not much thought or effort went into cleaning the unit prior to our arrival.
We are disappointed you did not enjoy your stay at the Argyle Suites-Artist's Suite. The Suite is most definitely cleaned before and after each guest, without a doubt the sheets are always washed and changed between guests. We are sorry if some items were overlooked.
First Time Visit to Friday Harbor
We enjoyed our visit and were very happy withe the Artist's suite. It was very comfortable and the location is excellent. We noted that water was an issue on the island and tried to take heed of the request to use water carefully. It was therefore rather surprising to find that the kitchen sink didn't have a plug. You might also want to check the plug in the bathroom sink, which doesn't seal properly.
I guess the only downside was the cost. The rate of $164/night is reasonable but when you add in the cleaning fee plus a non-refundable damage fee (I am not sure what this is about - I have never come across this before) and a service fee the total cost including taxes comes in at $274 per night, which is excessive. I believe you need to be upfront and and include all costs in the nightly rate rather than the rather misleading number quoted on the website.
