Beautiful setting with a dead deer.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was somewhat unhelpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
A great cabin with a beautiful view, wonderful garden and deck. The only problem was the dead deer just outside the fence. We called to inform the management company and were told that WE should call the road dept./public works to have it removed. Why should I have to deal with it? Would I have to fix a busted water heater, broken pipes, or clogged drain? Or would I have to call the plumber? NO! That's why I paid $300 per night to stay there on my honeymoon no less.
Property management means THEY manage these things. Management knew it was there for over a week, but never bothered to cart it off or cover it. The cabin and garden were great, we just couldn't enjoy all the property because of the horrific stench.

Hi David, we are sorry you experienced these unpleasant conditions! Although we cherish the abundance of deer and other wildlife on the San Juan's, witnessing their cycle of life can be disconcerting. Unfortunately, there are no animal control resources on Orcas Island (a member of our staff gave you erroneous information) and the local manager had presumed the situation would be resolved by the eagles in short order. We regret that we were not proactive in offering other accomodation.
