We had a great time at the elephant house. The view cannot be beat. House does need a few minor repairs. Board on front porch loose and screen door sticks.

Reviewer Comments:

The setting for the property is absolutely perfect and beautiful! Extremely quiet and peaceful location to watch sailboats and the world go by! The property was clean with some exemptions. Cooking pans were put away unclean and greasy from previous guests. The carpeting is extremely tired and in need of replacement. Oddly enough the same tired carpet is also covering the bathroom floor, with it being dampened by the shower and adjacent washing machine, the carpet holds the moisture making for an unfavorable musty smell. The views are unbeatable! The property itself was very nice but it could use some TLC and some updates.

Owner's Response: We apologize that the cooking pans were not cleaned to our standards for your stay. We are happy to hear that issue did not dampen your stay. The views and location of Elephant House are hard to beat when it comes to relaxing, water-view cabin's on San Juan Island. The owner has been updating their home over the past year and while the carpets do get professionally cleaned multiple times year, the replacement of the carpet has not been fully addressed as of yet. We hope you return to Elephant House again in the future and enjoy the sites and sounds of the North side!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a FANTASTIC time at this rental! Seriously, for the price, it is a steal. Every year my husband, myself, and two other married couples do a weekend getaway so we split the cost three ways and it was an amazing deal. The view is BREATH TAKING. We so 7 sealions at one time and the house is super cool too! The only bummer is having to check out so early in the monring. Aside from that, we'd do it again in a heart beat!

This was the perfect getaway. It barely misses 5 stars because the towels were probably put away slightly damp and had a hint of mildew smell. The shower is also very dark and quite old. Otherwise amazing and fantastic cabin. We would stay again.
