Why Jodie L Ausmus chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

My family has owned and vacationed in this area since the mid-1900s. When we are not at Élan Vital, I dream of listening to the ocean and feeling the wind against me.

What makes this house unique

Relax, enjoy the view and each moment.

Perfect place for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to agree that the pictures did not do this place justice - we were amazed! We had three generations in our group - 6 adults, and 3 children aged 4, 2 and 6 months. This home met all of our needs. The three floors allowed separation with multiple places for quiet time to read, watch TV or just kick back to watch the ocean churn. We rarely saw others when we were at the beach making it seem like it was ours. Ocean Shores and Seabrook are both nearby. Lastly, dealing with Jodie was a huge plus. She responded quickly to our messages, helped us work though the dates we needed, she had the place clean and stocked, and returned our cleaning deposit far quicker than I completed this review. We hope to go back!

Wonderful Place to Stay with All the Comforts of Home and More!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our trip to Copalis Beach and the opportunity to stay at this well-stocked beach cabin. The cabin was more beautiful than we expected.

The living room was spacious as well as the kitchen, all with a view of the ocean from the main floor. The master suite upstairs was gorgeous and beautifully decorated, with sweeping views of the ocean. The downstairs suite was very private and outside the windows, deer could be seen at different times of the day to the delight of children as well as the adults.

It was a great size for the 10 of us, 6 adults and 4 children as well as our sweet dog.

The cabin was very clean and nicely decorated. We all felt very much at home. The kids just loved it and wished they could live there!

The beach was absolutely lovely and so private, hardly saw anyone else, while the kids flew kites, built sand castles and jumped the waves.

An added plus was huckleberry picking, which allowed us to enjoy huckleberry pancakes and huckleberry milkshakes.

We will be back.

Thanks Jo for sharing your lovely home with us.

5th Time is a Charm!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, we've been back 5 times now to Elan Vital. It's our home away from home! This home has it all. Three floors so you can get away when needed. Beautiful views from the decks on 2nd and 3rd floor. Kitchen is a gathering place on floor 2, and is well stocked. The 10 minute walk to the beach is peaceful thru your own private trail system. You'll see plenty of wildlife, especially deer. This time we even saw a couple of folks float by riding motorized parachutes. Jo and Eric pride themselves on always doing what they can to make sure the home is up to date. This time, they upgraded two of the TV's to flat screens, added a brand new mattress in the 1st floor bedroom, and a new reclining chair on the 2nd floor. My idea of vacation is taking a nap everyday with the sound of the ocean. My wife and kids love to hang out, but like to go to town for coffee and some shopping, with Ocean Shores shops only 7 minutes away. We had a great time, with the only issue being we didn't book it for a longer stay! We can't wait to come back.

First Time to WA Coast and Loved It!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a absolutely wonderful time during our stay and believe it or not, this was actually our first trip to the WA coast - yes really :). The home is very comfortable and lends itself to just hanging out and taking in the great views. We ran into one day of rain and easily found enough to do inside with the games that we brought and the ones that the home is stocked with. They also have a large DVD library with two DVD players just in case you get tired of playing games and/or need some time for the kiddos to wind down. When the rain subsided, the short 10 minute walk to the beach through the beach grass and over the bridge wasn't at all bad and we had a lot of fun playing hide and seek in the grass too.

The only 2 things that have kept us from giving our trip a 5 Star Rating are: Even though the kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies, we constantly ran out of plates to use - very minor if you ask me, but I took the groups opinion. The biggest thing is the bed in the first floor bedroom. We had some good friends of ours spend the first two nights with us and the bed downstairs could not support the both of them. It has a serious middle dip in it and constantly squeaks every time someone moves. In our opinion, the bed should be replaced.

But again, this home is very comfortable and was a great place for us to spend our Spring Break. We want to thank Ausmus family for allowing us to rent their home, we had a wonderful time with lots of great memories!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the review and suggestions. Our home is for groups no larger then 10 people, and we encourage no more than 8 for maximum comfort. We have added dishes, which now allows up to 16 place settings. We have also replaced the 1st floor queen bed and other furniture items that were worn. I strongly encourage our guests to call me directly with any concerns, so that we can address them immediately. All the best for your family! We hope you can stay with us again. Jo
