Holiday Rental House
Get away from it all in this luxuriantly appointed, beautiful 4-bedroom home with spectacular water and territorial views. So quiet all you can hear is the swish of birds' wings. Samadhi House is perched atop Mt. Dallas, the highest point on San Juan Island in Washington state. It boasts spectacular views of Haro Strait (separates the US from Canada), the Canadian Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island, and forested mountains. Surrounded by the glories of NW nature, you can't see a single house. But you will watch as cruise liners silently head towards Alaska and eagles and hawks soar overhead. You may even spot the occasional whale breaching in the Strait. At night, you'll see the distant lights of Victoria and Sydney B.C. The perfect private retreat! Samadhi House features: • 4 bedrooms; sleeps...Get away from it all in this luxuriantly appointed, beautiful 4-bedroom home with spectacular water and territorial views.

We just returned from our daughter’s wedding on San Juan Island. She got married at Lime Kiln Lighthouse and the house was very close to that. I had read prior reviews about the horrible, treacherous, and scary road leading to the house. We had no problems whatsoever. Yes there is a steep hill but it was no big deal so I really can’t understand all the drama about that. The layout was fine for us. We had a mix of elderly, middle aged, young adults, and small children and everything was very doable. The upstairs bedroom is ENORMOUS and we simply made pallets on the floor for some of the children to sleep. The basement was perfect for the younger adults but bear in mind there is no door directly from inside the house to the basement...one must enter the basement via an outside door. Again, no worries. Now.... for the best part... THE KILLER VIEW! Oh my word. Awesome! Each morning while the kids slept us adults would go on the deck to sip coffee and just relish the beauty. Oh and we saw deer walking below the deck!!!! It was so beautiful! So, to wrap this up, it was a perfect, calming place to stay as we celebrated our daughters wedding!

Samadhi house is on the quiet west side of San Juan Island, about a 20 minute drive from Friday Harbor, with beautiful vistas along the way. The gravel driveway is fairly steep, and was a challenge for our Acura, but that is a minor inconvenience. The house is beautiful, with 2 bedrooms on the main level (one with bathroom), master upstairs, and private downstairs with multiple single beds and bathroom. The master bedroom is very comfortable, with beautiful bathroom and separate toilet room. Kitchen has everything we needed to prepare multiple meals, and had ample spices available. Living areas are very comfortable, with great dining table conducive to game and card playing. By far the best part of the house is the wonderful deck, with its view to Haro Strait and Vancouver Island. We had the most spectacular sunsets imaginable. Ajayan has been great to deal with, extremely responsive and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to friends and family, and look forward to another great stay in the future.
