    Absolutely perfect stay. We started a fire before we even unloaded our bags -the view from the fire put was stunning. Ships, boats and ferries going by and Saw a humpback whale on the fist night! Property was beautiful and kitchen was adequate for cooking. We wished there had been more nights available and we hope to return if our schedule allows! Thank you!

    a guest from Eugene, OR recommends this vacation rental

    Elephant house has real soul and is in such a breathtakingly beautiful location I'm so happy to have rented it. I was a little concerned about the 70's look of it on line and carpeting in the bathroom, but the property is so well managed and everything was so clean that my funkiness concerns evaporated the minute we walked in. The view from the upstairs bed is pretty magical, and with the sunset lasting so long (dark at 10:00) it was fun to watch the light still changing from up there and to wake up and look out.

    Janet R from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We were surprised to have such terrific weather for our mid-October visit to San Juan Island. Each morning and each night the sun reflected fall pastel colors through the large water-view windows. We saw sea otters and porpoises from the living room, grilled each night on the comfortable deck, appreciating the built in bench, and put the kitchen to full use. We ran a 3 mile loop each morning through Roche Harbor, and enjoyed hiking both British and American Camps. We explored and picnicked at the lighthouse, bought gorgeous items at the Alpaca Farm, and even went to Friday Harbor for the film fest (but got distracted by the football game showing in family-friendly restaurant comfort).
    EH isn't a fancy place, but simple and clean, and well-lived in. The kitchen faucet is mentioned elsewhere, and seemed so trite until each of us took turns cursing it, and the unneeded showers we kept taking from it's erupting spray! That's my only complaint. My 85 yo uncle, 9 yo daughter, husband and I enjoyed our stay at Elephant House.

    WE absolutely loved the location of this property. We could not have asked for a more beautiful view! We enjoyed the houses lay-out but it was a little dated. The deck was fabulous but also needed some repair as the railing was broken. But all in all we loved it and it was the most relaxing vacation I have had in years!

    Maura M from Meadowbrook, PA recommends this vacation rental

    We needed a place for our family of six to stay while attending a wedding at Roche Harbor. Although cozy, this cottage was the perfect place for us. The views are unparalleled and the daily gymnastics of the seals right off the deck were always entertaining. From this spot, we were able to go for a day sail (highly recommend Captain Howard, see his website), explore Lime Kiln State Park (no whales), visit the Mausaleaum, hike, and explore Friday Harbor. The loft and 1 BR were perfect for us; the kitchen/bath/laundry were appropriately stocked. The kids say it was the best vacation we've ever had. We want a little cottage of our own now on the same island. Thank you so much for sharing a piece of heaven with us.

    We had a wonderful three night stay in this funky two bedroom cabin. Even though it was quite cold outside (we stayed through New Years)it was warm and cozy inside. The cabin had everything we needed and then some! The view was amazing! We plan on going back during the summer when it is warmer and we can sit out on the deck and have a BBQ! Thank you for sharing this relaxing get away with us.

    Barbara S from Kirkland, WA recommends this vacation rental

    San Juan Property Mgmt was an extremely easy company to work with. The property was exactly as described, their booking was easy and when we called with a question it was answered promptly. I highly recommend them as a company.
    The property itself is wonderful. The location is perfect. We loved not having a TV or internet. The view was entertainment enough. The house is delightful, clean, cute, quiet and well-stocked. You really dont need to bring anything.
    About the only thing that is a problem with the house is that the upstairs floor squeaks quite loudly. Not a big deal.
    We cant wait to go back!

    This is not a luxury property, but it is very clean, well-stocked, and most importantly super well located! The home has the most important attributes: a great location RIGHT on the water, a wonderful deck and big windows from which to enjoy it. We spent most of our time outside cooking on the gas grill, sitting around talking and enjoying the view (including using the 3 pairs of binoculars provided). We had fabulous weather in early September which helped a lot too. Nice 1.6 mile walk to Roche Harbor and really nowhere on the island is too far a drive. The Elephant House was a great, cozy, beautiful setting and home base for our vacation.

    Perfectly located on a quiet waterfront stretch about a 20 minute drive from Friday Harbor. Could stand to have a little more light (up in the loft, particularly), and the sound on the television/DVD player didn't work when we tried it. That said, it was a wonderful place to get away from it all and the shortcomings only encourage greater peacefulness.

    Very quiet and relaxing time at the Elephant House. Great spot if you don't require beach access, you can find that down the street. Didn't use the TV for movies, couldn't get any sound to work, 29 year old TV. We spent a couple hours watching the Orca Whales from our boat, always fun to see. Sunny weather and beautiful sunsets.
