Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay and were comfortable! For the most part, we found everything as described, but the sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable so we ended up making a pallet on the ground to use instead. The cabin was definitely clean, but the rafters in the downstairs bedroom were loaded with dust and cobwebs, so the house probably needs to be deep cleaned soon. Those are our only complaints!

Reviewer Comments:

Best feature of the Elephant house is location and view from a nice deck. We called it our million dollar view! House is rustic and old, plenty of kitchen items including an oyster shucker! This rental has a lot of owners personal items, decorations,etc. My suggestion would be to remove the elephant decor; it distracts from the beautiful scenery. An expensive improvement would be to replace the shower and repair the bathroom fan. Never put carpeting in a bathroom. Overall our stay was great but I think priced a little high. I gave two stars on 'clean' because of funky bathroom that needs fixing up.

Reviewer Comments:

The home was a great size for the 3 of us; two adults and two children would work (fairly open loft, so perhaps not young children. Up-to-date oven/range, washer/dryer, fridge, and gas grill. No Wi-Fi or cable/satellite TV. Good phone reception. No access to sea. We enjoyed lunches at Friday Harbor Crab House and Friday Harbor Cheese; fresh clams and mussels from Westcott Farm that we cooked at the house. The drive to Cattle Point is beautiful and a must--great views of Mt. Rainer. Enjoyed Spirit of Orca whale boat, saw transient orcas, seals, eagles. House needs some attention to window (loft), front screen door (slow closer) and patio slider screen (works poorly). Home was clean. Some coffee, tea, salt/pepper available, otherwise provide own spices, condiments, cooking oil, etc. There are 2 beach chairs available in closet; also small cooler under kitchen sink. Saw passing orcas and eagles from the deck!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we loved this property! Here are our thoughts: PROS: Fantastic location and views. We spent a lot of time on the deck, watching the deer, otters and the animals on Speiden. The views made this property for us! Quiet neighborhood Kitchen well-stocked with essentials Washer-dryer SUPER comfortable beds and bedding CONS There were a few bugs and spiders inside. One HUGE spider that caused some hysteria. Recommend spraying. Oven cooks very unevenly. Things came out burned and overdone on one side and hardly cooked on the other. It ruined both things we cooked in it. Not enough toilet paper provided! We ran out a couple days before checkout and couldn't find any more in the house. Interior decor functional but not very nice or attractive. Anyway, the few things we didnt like were greatly outweighed by the things we did like. We would definitely stay in this cottage again and we would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a small and basic cottage with beautiful views.
