Whidbey Island Beach Front Vacation Home

Can I have the name of the builder of this awesome beach house please !

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough of good things about this wonderful beach house for my family of 6, including our elderly mother of 83, and our 2 year old girl. We chose this house after reading all the rave reviews, but the words don't describe just how truely woderful this home really is.

Quality workmanship of the entire house from every corner is top notch. Only the top quality materials were used to build this home, and is very well kept up. Three good sized bedrooms upstairs, and 3 total bathrooms all have top quality materials. All three bedrooms are practically sound proof, and spread apart for privacy. If this beach house was not situated in the most scenic South Whidbey Island, one would think the interior of the house was from the most expensive high rise condo in the middle of Manhattan. There was a LOL put into building this special home, not to mention the dedication to every little details.

Our family is little picky when it comes to picking and staying at a vacation home rental, but at the Ella's Beach House we couldn't have made a better decision. Thank you once again Ror for sharing your home with our family. We leave Whidbey Island with lasting memories of beach camp fires, fresh sea breeze, and the warmth of your home.

Perfect getaway on Whidbey Island.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on Whidbey Island at Ella's Beach house and can't say enough about the house, the location, the owners and the care we received while staying at Ella's Beach house. The house is located on a quiet dead end road with lovely and friendly neighbors on both sides. The house is waterfront along a beautiful tide beach. We enjoyed walking way out during low tides searching for wildlife and watching birds. We enjoyed learning how to crab, which was a delightful adventure for our teenage boys. Ror was exceptionally helpful at guiding us along through this process. I can't say enough about the home. This home does not feel like a rental home, it feels like you are staying at your best friends house. The beds, furniture, art, towels and linens are of very high quality and kept in excellent condition. The house is very well maintained and has everything you will need for a great vacation. The outdoor furniture is of very high quality, the cushions were very clean and very comfortable and the house had a supply of high quality wool throws for chilly mornings. The kitchen was very functional and very well equipped, it has pots and pans that were all very high quality, plenty of dishes, silverware, cooking and baking supplies and the appliances are all very high quality. The kitchen was well stocked with olive oil, salt, pepper, flour, sugar, cooking spray, ziplocks, foil, cling wrap, spices, tea, etc. The kitchen feels like working in your own kitchen and not that of a rental. The house was filled with games that our family played throughout our stay. The living room has a very comfortable set up for the entire family to gather to talk or to watch a game or a movie. The grounds were very well maintained with fresh flowers in the pots and a landscaper that arrived during our stay. The house feels very remote, yet is close enough to the ferry and the cute town of Langley to make for a charming vacation. Our family will definitely return, we'd like to make Ella's beach house a tradition for our family.

Where Amazing Memories Are Made

  • 5 of 5

Honestly. I CANNOT BELIEVE how lucky we were to have found Ella's Beach House. It delivered on every level...the scenery, the accommodations, the Whidbey beach experience (complete with clams and a canoe!)...everything you could need or want was so thoughtfully considered in advance and provided! The photos of the home are wonderful and even they don't do it justice, the home is THAT gorgeous. All of the home's finishings, from the building materials (like the fantastic front door, log pillars and ironwood decking) to the incredible collection of art work that adorns every room in the house, are WONDERFUL and just add to the home's already incredible charm. The layout and size was absolutely perfect for a gathering of our three families. Grandma and Grandpa took the master suite where they thoroughly enjoyed (and shared!) their jetted bath tub and walk in spa shower and private deck. My brother, his wife and their three children (10, 5, and 2) were all perfectly comfortable in the bedroom over the garage (commonly referred to as their "wing") with a bathroom accessible from the main hallway. My husband and I and our son (2) took the middle bedroom. The finished dormer spaces between the rooms were perfect playing/hideaway spots for all the kids when we were upstairs. And I should also say that the downstairs noise was hardly noticeable from the bedrooms and vice versa...nice if some folks get up earlier than others ;) Downstairs provides plenty of space (indoors and out) for everyone to spread out and not be "on top of each other". The furniture was all so comfortable and I even found lovely vases to put fresh cut dahlias and sunflowers from the farmers market in :) There were plenty of rubber boots for adults and kids alike, a super useful mud room equip with washer/dryer and utility sink so you don't trash the house coming in and out from the beach. The grounds are so well kept and so kid/dog friendly (we had our two dogs with us too), landscaping that just elevates this place to another level of quality in a rental property. At the end of our stay, we just felt so privileged to share in this amazing beach house experience and cannot thank Ror and Lori enough for their hospitality (from afar), their generosity in opening such a magical home to families like ours, and their thoughtfulness to ensure that every person who stays there feels like they are "home". It was unanimous, we would have never left if we didn't have to :)
