About

RIGHT IN THE HEART OF FRIDAY HARBOR ON SAN JUAN ISLAND.
ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL FERRY LANDING SUITE WITH TWO BEDROOMS, DECK, PARKING.

You will feel like you’re living in a postcard when you stay at The Ferry Landing Suites! The Elwha Suite is a delightful two bedroom condo located on the center level of a landmark building just a few steps from the heart of historic Friday Harbor. There is no accommodation more convenient for walking from the ferry landing or seaplane dock should you choose to leave the car behind on the mainland. _When you do bring the car, there’s a coveted on-site parking space reserved just for you._

You will find all the attractions and activities that Friday Harbor has to offer within a short stroll, including whale watching excursions, kayak adventures, local shops, fine galleries, theater, and an eclectic selection of restaurants. As an added bonus, there’s a coffee shop on the lower level where you can sip your morning latte, enjoy fresh baked goods, or enjoy a fresh fruit smoothie. During the summer, perch up on your balcony above the bustling street to enjoying watching the ferries glide in and out of the harbor. During the fall and winter months, you will find the Yakima a wonderful place to snuggle up indoors and enjoy the quiet, reflective atmosphere cherished by the locals.

The Elwha Suite is beautifully furnished, featuring two equal bedrooms, both with queen-sized beds. The living area is spacious offering a sleeper sofa, full kitchen, and dining table. A perfect choice for two couples or small family.

Interim cleaning is available on request.

We enjoyed the weekend in this lovely condo. Location is perfect for walking everywhere and it is spotless.
It is a bit noisy in the morning if you are looking to sleep in, there is a small coffee shop downstairs that opens early and you can hear the noise.
We didn't mind, we were up and out early. it was a really nice stay in great accommodations.

Thank you for making our first trip to Friday Harbor a fantastic one! The accommodations were bigger than expected! Both couples were very comfortable! Checking in was easy and instructions were easy to understand! Location is the best! Convenient and close to all of Friday Harbor and the ferry! Although there was a parking spot available, we opted to walk on the ferry because the condo was so close! I highly recommend either one of the suites here!

Lovely - just get it and go. A couple of quibbles: 1) there's nothing to cook in the oven - ie, no cookie sheet, broiler pan, or cast iron skillet. We had to put our chicken tenders directly on the oven rack. Messy. 2) Wifi is s-low. Don't count on doing a lot of internet-y things (work, games) while you're here.
So, pack a cast iron skillet, top off your cell data plan, and get this suite.

Amazing view!

Have stayed in various vacation properties this would rank with the best of them. It was better than the photos online. Located in the heart of the downtown area. The activity of the ferry and the water view added to the island experience. I would warn travelers who want isolation or quiet mornings however, the grandkids and my wife and I decided we could live here in a minute.

Excellent location for those interested in watching the harbor/ferry activity. However, along with that comes the hustle and bustle of cars & people. Area grows peaceful and quiet around 8pm until the coffee shop below the middle Elwha unit lights up around 7am !! The bedroom with the skylight is always somewhat bright even at night. All & all it's a great experience if you want to be near all the activity. Access to float planes, whale watching. The excellent King Market store is great and the unit has excellent appliances and room for everyone including the private deck.(

BTW... don't even ask for a late checkout even if no one else is booked..one contract says 10am the other 11am but they enforce the 10am)

Amazing location. You look out your window at the ferry dock just below you. For us non-islanders it feels like being at the heart of the activity while still at home. And you have two coffee places and 3 restaurants within 100 feet of your door, but you're also a couple floors up, so it's not off-putting, quiet and private.

The only disappointment in our stay was that the wireless was down the whole time, Friday to Tuesday. There had been a problem throughout the island the day before with a cable cut at Anacortes, but as our stay wore on, everybody else had Internet, we didn't. Management became responsive only after several complaints, and the problem was still there when we left.

Excellent!

The location is perfect immediately in front of the ferry. Beautiful windows where we sat and watched the busy activity of the port. Close to all restaurants. Reserved parking. Very clean and comfy robes were a great touch. The only issue we had is the internet was inoperable for the entire trip and was never repaired even after reporting the issue.

This property is all about the location. Literally steps from the ferry landing, you're in the middle of it all with the best views of the harbor. Furniture is dated and not the most comfortable (the new blue couch is awful), but certainly doable. Has all the basic kitchenware you need for simple meals.

You just can't get more convenient than this condo. It is right off of the ferry, right downtown. The balcony is our favorite place to sit and play cards and watch people come and go on the fairies. There is a bakery and coffee shop right below. Unfortunately, the baker enjoys loud music early in the morning... we switched rooms with the children and that seemed to work :-) We love this location and will definitely be back again.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest - thank you for choosing to visit the San Juan Islands and thank you so much for your kind comments here. We really enjoy the Elwha Suite as well - it definitely provides a slice of island life rarely seen unless you sit on a bench and watch it all go by (or in this case on the balcony!). We look forward to your return and appreciate your repeat patronage. If there is anything special we can do for your next visit please do not hesitate to reach out to our staff at the office. Best Regards, General Manager

First time to visit San Juan island. Traveled with a one year old... very clean unit. Across the street from the Ferry. Super convenient, close to restaurants and lots of interesting people watching. Overlooks the water, enjoyed it very much. Not secluded but a great unit for convenience. Up a flight of stairs so need to be mobile.

The problem was the traffic lining up early in the morning to load the ferry. It was right outside our bedroom window. Just too noisy. I wouldn't stay here again.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us in the San Juan Islands. We also appreciate your feedback here. You are correct that these suites are in a very urban setting right above the ferry landing. Some guests love the activity and sites and sounds. For others, it is not the setting they were thinking of when they thought of visiting. We hope you will return soon and give us an opportunity to show you a different experience in the Islands. Best Regards, General Manager

The location and view are great and the unit was comfortable, but it was noisy. The house sits on a corner with the ferry landing across the street to the front and a parking lot across the street to the side. Cars cue up for the ferry in that parking lot. That was noisy early in the morning. We slept in the quieter bedroom, but we woke each morning by 6:30 to a garbage truck as it made its rounds. As much as we enjoyed the unit, we wouldn't stay there again just because we like to sleep longer in the morning when on vacation.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to visit the Islands and for your comments here. As noted in other reviews and review responses the Suites are located in downtown Friday Harbor right above the Ferry Landing. For some this provides a wonderful setting for a fabulous vacation experience. But we certainly understand that different guests will appreciate different aspects of a given property. We highly encourage guests to contact us before booking so we can ensure that you are booking the property that will provide the experience you are looking for. We sincerely hope you will decide to return and give us an opportunity to find you a property better suited to your needs. Best Regards, General Manager

After parking our car in Anacortes, we took our bikes on the ferry to Friday Harbor. Rolling off the ferry and right up to our condo, was a luxury! The Elwha suite has the best view, and is located in the heart of Friday Harbor. My two children enjoyed watching the fairies come and go. We played games out on the deck, wow people watching all the tourists. We visited the ice cream shop across the street several times. Each day we did a different bike ride, each day a new adventure, each day returning to our comfortable and convenient lodgings. We felt a bit special staying in this perfect locale. We will definitely be back!

We have been coming to the Ferry Landing Suites for 10 years now. Most of the time we bring another couple (1st timers) with us and book the 2 bedroom unit. Sometimes we have a 3rd couple come and they take the top floor and we just all gather in the second floor. We love the bay window and "people watch" for hours and loved to run down stairs for great coffee and breakfast. Also loved the desserts we could get late night. BUT, now there is a new owner?? The Doctor's Office Coffee/Deli is gone and the new place is hardly open. But even worse is the new big coffee shop sign that blocks the view out of the bay window. It blocks the whole sidewalk from our viewing. Please have this sign moved or we will not be back. I won't pay the high price to look at the backside of an ugly sign that blocks my view. Who the **** ok'd that sign??! The all white paint on the outside is a disappointment as well. It used to be a beautiful house with lots of colors and now it is just...blah. I hope it gets some trim work to make her beautiful again. It's not the place we loved anymore, most of it can be fixed if the new owner cares. We did not mind the noise from below at all. We loved the view and the good food we could get at all hours and those two things are gone. I'm afraid we are too if they don't get fixed. You have lost a ten year repeat customer because of a stupid coffee shop sign.

Five sisters 59to73yrs loved our stay. We could walk everywhere in town & had our own parking spot guaranteed if we took the car out. The restaurants around us closed early enough for night sleeping but close the windows if you don't want 4:30am Ferry vehicle line up to keep you awake. Great location & plenty of action to watch from 2nd story bay windows. We liked The Far North Caf for quick breakfast & espresso coffee drinks.

We really enjoyed our stay. Great location and lots to see. I was not too impressed with the cleanliness of the bathroom. Mostly the shower. There was orange mold on the walls and black mold on the floor. I feel like if you are going to charge as much as you did for the rental you better make sure it's in tip top shape. Also the beds were very hard as were the pillows. Oh also you should let renters know that they can store their luggage in the property office. Thanks to John we were able to do that. Great balcony and liked the layout.

I go to Friday Harbor yearly. I have typically stayed at a bed and breakfast place or one of the hotels. Since 3 of us were traveling together this time, I booked the 2 bedroom condo with a view and was very happy. The condo is so conveniently located and the private balcony was just what we needed after a long day of running around everywhere. Sipping wine, watching the ferries and just enjoying the view with friends. We had a great weekend escape.

There were 5 of us travelling together and we all loved the Elwha Suite! The decor was great, 2 nice sized bedrooms, a big bathroom, spacious living and kitchen area. Lots of light and windows. And the views - GREAT! We were lucky and had nice cool to warm, sunny weather. We all enjoyed spending time watching the ferries and all the hustle and bustle of Friday Harbor. The bathroom was well stocked with plenty of soap, shampoo, and towels. My only suggestion to the owners is the kitchen really needs more pots, pan, dishes, and silverware. But, I really can't express how much we all loved this place. None of us wanted to leave. There is no doubt we would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

We loved the location. Our two boys, ages 10 & 7 enjoyed waking early and car/bird watching from the wonderful window seat in the Living area. Everything was perfect, minus 2 minor complaints. 1st - we would really love to see more gourmet cooking/baking equipment (there wasn't even a skillet, just 3 Teflon coated pots - and we prefer stainless uncoated). 2nd - our in-laws were upstairs from us, and wake several hours earlier than us, unfortunately the upstairs bathroom is set right above the bedroom we slept in. We heard every flush. We wouldn't let that deter us from future visits though, because we can expect a change in architectural layout. :-) It was a fantastic stay, and we felt very at home, but with less obligation and much more fun! Also, the proximity to everything shopping and eating is so perfect! Terrific Sushi and Thai right out the door!

What a perfect place to stay in Friday Harbor! We walked right off of the fairy, walked one block and we were here. The place is magical. We especially loved the gorgeous private outdoor patio where you can enjoy a bottle of wine and watch the Sea Planes land. One thing that isn't merchandised too well in the photos is the gorgeous bay window that looks out onto the harbor. The perfect place to enjoy some morning coffee from the coffee shop right downstairs. You may be able to spend a little less and stay at hotel a half a mile away, but trust me - spend the extra money and enjoy the perfect place in Friday Harbor!

We rented both the apartments in this building: the 2nd floor with 2 bedrooms for my parents and sister and the 3rd floor studio for my husband, daughter and me. It was perfect! We had all the space we needed with privacy for everyone and the convenience of being all together. Linda, the rental agent was wonderfully helpful both before and during our stay. The apartments were clean and well appointed - just as described in the listing. The beds were very comfortable - even the sleeper sofa in the 3rd floor apartment. There were plenty of towels available in the bathroom and most everything we needed in the kitchen. We could have used a couple more bowls for breakfast and/or for snacks on the 3rd floor. The other additions that would be helpful would be a blanket for the sleeper sofa and recycling containers. We left our recycling bagged and in the apartment when we left because we didn't have any other place for it.

We loved the location in the middle of everything. We watched the ferry loading and unloading and all of the boats coming and going. I was concerned that it might be noisy but it wasn't. When the ferry was loading there was some noise for a brief period but not disturbing. We loved being able to walk to the apartment from our boat coming in and then walk to shops, restaurants and the whale museum in town... then we were right there to get to the dock for a wonderful whale watch! There are other properties that would be better if you are looking for away and secluded. This is in the harbor area - and fun!

The apartments were wonderful rented together for our group of 6 people but would also be great rented separately for fewer people. The 2 bedroom 2nd floor apartment certainly has more space and the fully appointed kitchen but the 3rd floor apartment is also lovely and was very comfortable for 2 adults and our 19 year old daughter.

We are looking forward to staying there again!

As such we saw all the action as ferries arrived and left throughout the day and evening. The suite was very clean and comfortable. Restaurants and shops were steps away.

As noted in other reviews, it is a loud and active location, with daily ferry noises, trash trucks, semi trucks, and even one morning at 0600 the street cleaner. Best for early risers!

Three of us shared this wonderful apartment and loved being so close to everything! It couldn't have been more conveniently located. The deck was a great place to enjoy a morning coffee and muffin(from right downstairs) or an afternoon glass of wine, while watching the world go by. The rooms were very comfortable, except for the fact there were few opening windows with screens, which would not have been a problem, if we had not been there during a "heat wave". Rooms were stuffy during the day and did not cool off until late in the evening. Despite that, we'd definitely stay there again. We also rented a car and toured the rest of the island which I highly recommend. Roche Harbor is small, but delightful, and the drive provides lots of opportunity for scenic stops, as well as a lavender farm, alpaca farm, and winery.

Great view of the ferry and Friday Harbor, I loved its location in the heart of town. The suite is very attractive, comfortable, clean and well-kept. If you plan on being organized and initiating your own check-in arrangements and don't rely on the management to take care of everything for you, your stay will probably begin much more smoothly than ours. The room is so wonderful though, I would absolutely stay there again.

Manager's Response

We are VERY sorry about the difficulty you experienced with your check-in instructions. Your stay coincided with a most unusual event - the underwater fiber optic cable connecting the San Juan Islands to "the world" was severed, resulting in no telephone, internet, or cell phone communications for a several days. (Wow - do we all depend on them to do any business!) Services were gradually and intermittently returned through a variety of emergency repairs and utilities, but unfortunately the situation impacted our ability to provide directions and customary guest information for a period of time. Glad that you enjoyed your stay in other respects!

We originally had reserved the Yakima room, but because of water damage we were upgraded to the Elwha suite. We didn't need the extra bedroom, but I was very pleased with the suite. It has a bay window, complete with cushions, looking right at the ferry landing. What a beautiful view. A great place to sit and have coffee in the a.m., and even better place to sit with a glass of wine in the p.m.. Also it had a small patio which was awesome to go out and have dinner. I would recommend this rental to anyone staying in Friday Harbor. It doesn't get any better than that!!!!!

It couldn't be a more fun place to stay that is even more valuable with its full kitchen you can chow down on the stylish wicker chair/table private deck overlooking all the fabulous activity. Every seafood cafe and restaurant we went to was terrible, so I'd recommend bringing your own food. Friday Harbor needs to improve on their eateries which was a costly disappointment. The dining at Roche Harbor on the other hand IS Fabulous... Also, the property management people for Elwha are wonderful - Thank you for everything ! The convenience as well as it's a cute place with the most excellent location makes The Elwha the very best choice with two bedrooms... FANTASTIC!

My first time at this location and I must say, it was nice. The unit had a beautiful view with comfortable interior. I'm not much of a morning person, so the coffee below (that prepped for opening around 6am) was not working in my favor. There was a small spider problem, but no biggie. May be more of a concerned to those traveling with children.

I always have a great time visiting friends and family in Friday Harbor and I'll return soon, for sure. I'll definitely recommend this place to others (I actually did so, during my visit). I may not recommend it to friends of mine, though.. We all work long hours and wake up pretty early in the daily grind, so we enjoy having the option to sleep in a bit while on holiday.

Once again, "Great place for the Early Bird".

The photos and description do not do this place justice. There is a private and locked deck where we stored bikes, the view is phenomenal. There is no street noise which was shocking given how close to the ferry it is. The only 2 issues were that the cookware was scant making it hard to make dinner, and the kitchen noise from the cafe below was quite loud in the one bedroom--early in the morning.
