The San Juan Islands in Washington State are known for being peaceful, scenic, and full of exotic wildlife. There is a distinct lack of urban, metropolitan areas that are bustling with activity. Instead, the closest thing the islands have to a central hub is Friday Harbor, a town only one square mile in length with a population around 2,400.

Fittingly, there are many vacation homes for rental in the vicinity of Friday Harbor and other popular vacation spots in the islands. There are several reasons why you should consider choosing one of these homes over renting a hotel room.

The first reason is pricing. Vacation homes tend to be much more affordable than traditional hotels, especially when you consider the extra fees hotels usually come with. Hotels tend to charge extra for food, parking, laundry or Wi-Fi access. If you rent a vacation home, the price you see is what you have to pay for.

The second reason is comfort. Vacation houses were made for residential living, so you’ll feel all the comfort of being in your own home. You’ll have lots of space to move freely, and all the amenities you need to live, such as kitchen appliances, laundry machines, and a home kitchen for making your own meals. Furthermore, many vacation homes are pet-friendly, so you won’t need to worry about leaving your pet at home.

The third reason is availability. There is a wide array of vacation rentals available in multiple locations, many of which provide waterfront views and easy access to popular tourist locations. The chances are high that you’ll find a vacation house that caters to your specific needs.
