Guest Suite with 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
About Liza Michaelson
As a an educator and writer I travel extensively. When I am home I get the feeling of continued travel by hosting people in my guest suite. I enjoy facilitating guests vacations and helping them get the most out of their time on the island. As a long term resident of San Juan Island I have plenty of suggestions for activities! I raised my family here at Sunny Knoll, and I enjoy hosting families with children and seeing them explore and play around the mountain top.
Liza Michaelson purchased this Apartment in 1987
Why Liza Michaelson chose Friday Harbor
I grew up in Portland, Oregon and up my family would charter sailboats in the islands in the summers. I thought the San Juan Islands were paradise, and I moved here at age 24 to live my dream life. I can't imagine ever moving away from my private mountain paradise. After my children left home I opened the Guest Suite so others could enjoy this special place.
What makes this Apartment unique
Surrounded by pristine beauty and panoramic vistas, with areas to explore; or just relax with a book or in the hot tub watching the sky, trees, wildflowers, deer and birds....Sunny Knoll is a perfect spot for families as well as a romantic getaway for a couple (see specials).

Piece of Paradise
Get ready to have your mind blown when you stay here - the sunsets, the space, the sauna, the hot tub - too many wonderful elements of this Shangri-La to mention.
Two girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay at Sunny Knoll. The location is superb and Liza was welcoming and generous. We can hardly wait to go back.
Thanks Lorraine, I'm so glad you and your friends enjoyed your stay here and I would be thrilled to host you again.. It's pretty clear you ladies take the fun with you wherever you go, so I'm not sure the compliment to me is necessary
Lovely rustic retreat
We loved Sunny Knolls! The property is great for kids to roam around, and there are two great swings attached to the trees, fun even for the adults. The views to the water were nice, and it was even beautiful when the rains and fog rolled in. We also LOVED the hot tub. Kassi was great at showing us around and being responsive when we needed things. We were also so glad to have met and connected with Liza on our final day. Will definitely come again!
Sunni, you have a charming family; everybody so interested in nature.
Thanks for leaving the suite so clean.
Perfect 'Out of City' Location
This location was perfect for 4 lady travelers enjoying hiking, kayaking, exploring in the San Juan Islands. Far enough out of town (with a nice rural road for access) but yet close enough for all that we wanted to do. The home owner was fabulous and very accommodating. Loved the hot tub, stars at night, access to the outside shower and overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I’m glad you had such a great time,
but you ladies clearly take the fun and joy with you wherever you are!!
I am honored you chose Sunny Knoll.
Unbelievable view and solitude. We absolutely loved our stay. Thanks for everything!
