Welcome to Jozy's Place! This private room is in a 2-bed/2-bath home on 5+ acres, located ~5.5 miles north of Friday Harbor in the middle of the island (having a car to get around is highly recommended!). Bedroom is in quiet corner of the house. Great place to base yourself for multi-island explorations!
Although this room is on the smaller size - ~10' x 10' - it is bright and cheery, painted in yellow, green and white. It has a double bed with a comfortable memory foam mattress and is located on the second floor of the home in the corner. The room has two windows so when we do get warmer weather in the summer, you can sometimes get a nice cross-breeze blowing through the room at night. Directly adjacent to this bedroom is a bathroom with a shower and will be the one you use during your stay at my home.
Although the house sits atop a hill, cellphone reception can be spotty. Usually the WiFi is pretty reliable and there is a landline phone available for you to make any local calls if you're not getting a signal on your cell.
As a guest at my house, I want you to feel comfortable and make yourself at home. If you need something, please ask.
The layout of the house is a bit backwards. The main floor houses the living room. On one side is of this room is a large bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower and on the other side the larger of the two guest bedrooms. Upstairs is the kitchen, sunroom with access to outside balcony, second bedroom and bath with shower.
In the morning, come on up to the kitchen. Here you're more than welcome to brew a pot of coffee or have cup of tea, make some toast, and enjoy it out on the sunny balcony! There are also the normal kitchen appliances you're welcome to use like microwave, toaster oven, blender, refrigerator, stove, etc. To help save you some $$ during your visit to the islands, please feel free to make small meals in the kitchen (please, no full-on 3-course meals!).
The primary bathroom for your use is the one on the second floor next to your bedroom. You should consider this as a semi-private bath as, if the second bedroom is also booked, the owner will be using one of the two bathrooms in the home.
There is a nice deck and patio off the larger bedroom on the main floor which you are also welcome to use. There is a porch swing on the patio and comfortable loungers on the deck. There are also chairs on the second-floor balcony. Both are great places to enjoy the stars and listen to the tree frogs at night!
Laundry service can be provided at a small extra fee - just ask!

Living on a tourist-dependent island, I tend to work a lot in the summer (when the work is available!). I always try to be at the home when you arrive, but can't guarantee it. As such, if you have any questions before your arrival, please feel free to email me. And, when home, I'll be available to answer any questions you may have and help you plan activities if you wish. I'm full of helpful information!

Who is Jozy? Jozy is my 11-year old silver dapple dachshund and this truly is her place which she rules with an iron paw! Her #1 job here is to patrol the grounds, keeping out all intruders be it deer, fox, neighborhood dogs (heaven forbid any of them try and cross the property line!), and all strangers. As such, expect to be barked at enthusiastically upon your arrival! It may seem a bit menacing but when she realizes you are nice people, she'll likely run and get a toy or try to weasel her way into your room so she can check out what you've brought along! She quickly accepts your presence and is a real sweetie-pie. But she has a very large presence and if you're not a "small dog" person, this likely isn't going to be an ideal situation for you!
About the owner - Amy. I've lived on San Juan Island over 20 years and am very nature-oriented. Anything you want to know about great places to hike, bird, have a nice picnic, etc. just ask! I'm very knowledgeable about the local wildlife, especially the whales (I worked at The Whale Museum for over 14 years).
I also travel a lot myself and am always trying to find inexpensive places to stay that are both clean and quiet. And this is exactly what I'm trying to provide for my guests.
- I want my guests to feel comfortable and make themselves at home. However, out of respect for my neighbors and me, quiet time is between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am. No parties or overnight guests are allowed No smoking or drugs are permitted on the property and, although having a glass (or 2) of wine or beer is certainly fine, excessive drinking is not cool!
- We are also a shoe-free home so I'd appreciate you removing your shoes and leaving them on the landing by the door.
- One more thing - most homes outside of the town limits are on wells - some good, some bad. I share a mediocre well with a neighbor so we do practice water conservation here. Meaning? When shaving or brushing your teeth, don't let the water run. And limit showers to ~5 mins if possible. Thanks!
