    Lawrence H from Spokane Valley, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Because of three different floors and a little cabin outside the home we were all able to have our own space to chill without seeing any body until you wanted to.The 8 place dinning table was nice so we all could sit around and share our meals at same time, and great times we had for the day. Great view of ocean form most locations on the home & property. It was a fun week for all 8 of us. Would recommend to you all.

    Kent B from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    This is a terrific vacation house. Three couples shared it, one stayed in the guest house. The big bedroom downstairs is without a door. Not a problem for us, but might be for some. Very clean and comfortable. The kitchen lacked some items: wine glasses and salad bowls, and the faucet needs repair. The pads to the patio furniture need replacing or cleaning. All in all, a good choice for a fair price.

    Briony W from Chaska, MN recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Alba Vista for a week over the fourth of July. The home and guest house were perfect for our group. It was a multigenerational trip, so my in laws were able to have their own space in the guest house, and my husband, 3 kids and I were in the main house. This worked out perfectly. We loved the patio that overlooked the water and spent time on it each day- watching the sunrise with some coffee was a treat! Our elementary age children LOVED that we could go down to the beach and explore. In our week there, we saw jellyfish, crab, a harbor seal, a starfish, eagles, and plenty of other birds- all from the Alba Vista property. We saw plenty of other amazing wildlife as we explored the San Juan Islands. The home was very clean and pretty, and was equipped with anything we might have needed. All and all we had an amazing trip and Alba Vista was wonderful!

    a guest from Austin, TX recommends this vacation rental

    This property allowed three generations of our family plenty of privacy as well as opportunities for sharing. We appreciated being out from Friday Harbor while also only a brief ride from town. The view was so beautiful. The amenities were exceptional, including responsive AC/heat, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor seating area, & small private beach. The management company was professional, informative, & friendly. We hope to return.

    a guest from Scarsdale, NY recommends this vacation rental

    Alba Vista is a *beautiful* home in a tranquil, relaxing area not far from Friday Harbor, with a great view of the ocean. There's access to a small pebble beach that's practically private. The home was well appointed, very nicely decorated, and clean everywhere. It had practically everything we needed/looked for. We particularly liked that one bedroom is basically its own little cottage, even with its own coffee maker, microwave, and TV.

    The only time we had to call the office was when we locked ourselves out of the separate unit, but one person from the management team came out fairly quickly to let us in, even though it was past 10:30PM on a Saturday night. That's superb service.

    Just a few minor nitpicks:
    *The queen-bed room downstairs has no door (so you might hear the laundry machines running across the hall) and no shade over a door to the outside (not a huge deal, as there's basically no one around, and you can hardly see the neighboring house, if at all).
    *There was a minor vinegar-like smell in the air at the beginning. One or two others in our party might have noticed, but it didn't bother anyone and it went away in a day or so.

    All in all, we couldn't have expected more. The place anchored our fantastic time together on the island.

Excellent view of Griffin Bay and Mt Rainier (occasionally). Quality equipped, supplied. Beds very comfortable. Convenient to Friday Harbor. Minor comments available on request.

    Cynthia L from Somerset, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    This was an extremely nice, clean and well appointed home to vacation in. We had six people, but it easily fits eight. There are three levels and a separate guest house, so everyone had more than enough space to spread out. The main level, living room, dining room kitchen is open and very comfortable to congregate together. Linens, and towels were provided and enough. The kitchen cookware was good and the stocked pantry with spices, sugar, tea, and much more, made us feel very welcome. I have rented other homes before and had to bring my own salt and pepper, but all of these things were there. We replaced what we used up and I think that is the way others may have done it also. There were also a lot of books to read and games to play. The view of the bay from the living room window was just spectacular and we did spend some time exploring the beach. I would stay there again. Close to town, far enough away from noise.

    Nancy L from Lincoln, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This home is very spacious. It sits on Griffin bay with beautiful views. There was space for each family to have their own space. The outdoor deck was comfortable to sit on in the late afternoon. We like to cook and planned to have most meals at the house. The old pots and pans made that quite a challenge. The bed in the cottage sagged in the middle. And the downstairs door to the outside did not have a curtain for privacy. But despite these items we really enjoyed the home and property.

    We spent Christmas here on a whim and it was magical. The dining room & living area look directly upon the water. The view is spectacular. On Christmas morning we watched an Eagle catch a fish and eat out on the beach, all from our living room! The mother-in-law unit was nice, but quite cold. One of the downstairs bedrooms had very little privacy (no door between bedroom & interior hallway & no covering for the exterior French door). Excellent master bath. Beautiful, maintained property. We would stay here again.

    It's great experience for the whole process. The property management company just handle every steps smoothly. The house cleaned professionally like a hotel. It offers 1 master suite at top level, 1 bedroom and recreation room in lower level, and 1 cottage with it's own bath and fireplace. Every room has great views. When I found 2 little minor defects when move in and email the property manager, they called early morning to follow up.

    I would recommend this vacation home to all my friends.

    Sarah G from Huntsville, AL recommends this vacation rental

    The home was perfect for our family. We had 6 adults and 2 toddlers and there was privacy for everyone but a large enough family room and kitchen to all be together. The kitchen was very well equipped. There were toys for the children and puzzles and games for the adults. There are beautiful views from every room. It's very quiet, almost secluded, but just a short ride to Friday Harbor. The only problem we had was when the smoke alarms went off in the middle of the day for no reason. I called the property manager and they were there within 15 minutes and replaced all the smoke detectors. Very professional and nice.

    a guest from Sacramento, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Alba Vista was a great house and location. Better than expected and the website photos suggested. Right on the water with great views. Guest cottage was also very nice with a great view. Well appointed. We had two couples and two college age daughters and all were very comfortable.

    The property manager was very responsive to a couple of questions we had during our stay.

    One issue that did not bother us, but could be an issue for a larger group was the lack of privacy for the third bedroom in the main house. It appears to be a converted game room and has no door or window coverings. The sun rises VERY early in the summer and the room is bright. If you like to sleep a little later and need a dark room, this will be a problem. Since that was not an issue for our group, we'd recommend it for groups of 6 or less and we'd stay there again.

    8 of us (4 adults, 4 kids) stayed there over a weekend. The house is clean and has everything you need and a great view of Mt. Baker and the water. It's location is good, but a car or bicycle is necessary to get to town. The only issue we had is with the coffee maker: after it has brewed about half the amount of water you put in, it sputters and steams endlessly with no additional coffee brewed. The solution is to add about 4 more cups of water than you really need.

    All amenities and location were great. Everything was fine as far as cleanliness, view, interior, etc. The floor plan left something to be desired. It wasn't condusive to open, easy family gatherings around the dinner table or to the deck. The photos indicated this so we weren't necessariy disappointed we just wouldn't choose the property again. For others, the formal dining room and lack of informal eating area, or the deck a little out of the way, maybe wouldn't be a problem.
