About Leslee & Paul

Live in Portland, Oregon. We have been going to the San Juans since college - many years ago.

Leslee & Paul purchased this house in 1998

Why Leslee & Paul chose Orcas Island

One of the unique locations in the world. Located in the San Juan Island banana belt of NW United States. Incredible marine life. Olga is a picture perfect hamlet with an historic post office and the Olga Store (literally on post cards)

What makes this house unique

Grab your favorite refreshment (and company) and hang out on the dock and enjoy the absolutely spectacular view. Watch eagles fly overhead, and the ferries and sailboats in the distance, and be mesmerized by the silence at night.

Great vacation property on a fabulous island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults spent 8 nights at this property and enjoyed every moment. The house is fully equipped with WiFi and 3 TVs with DirectTV if you feel the need to connect with the world since cellular service is spotty. We enjoyed dinners on the deck in the 70 degF evenings which are easily prepared in the fully equipped kitchen and/or propane grill.

The house was clean, well equipped, accurately described and access was simple due to accurate and straightforward instructions the owner provided.

The Island has plenty of activities for those that enjoy the outdoors, kayaking on the sea (<100 yards down the road) or at nearby Cascade Lake (7 minute drive), biking the hilly roads or hiking the many trails in Moran State Park. Nearby Catkin Cafe (5 minute walk) has fabulous breakfast and lunch. A fifteen minute drive to Rosario Bay, Doe Bay or Eastsound to find more food options, shopping and more.

The resident Columbia Black Tail deer make for welcome sight in the mornings and evenings around the house, just be mindful of them when driving. We also saw otter, raccoon and harbor seal in and around Olga Bay.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone

1st time visitors to island but sure to return.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, comfortable house near the water and we certainly got it. The house was very nice, well equipped, and nicely situated for reaching Moran State Park, in particular. We would highly recommend this house to others. It was better supplied than many places we have stayed, the whole house was clean. The owners were very responsive to our comments and needs.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a fantastic stay at Olga House. The house had everything we needed to cook meals, and there were green cleaning products which we really appreciated. It was so quiet and peaceful- we loved watching the deer every evening. Our favorite meal was at the waterfront Doe Bay Cafe. We also picked up delicious food from the deli at the Orcas Food Co-op. My husband left 2 jackets at the house, and the owners kindly shipped them back to us. We will definitely return to Olga House again!

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first stay and there was no question when we planned another visit to Orcas, where we wanted to stay. Leslee & Paul have clearly put a ton of thought into what creature comforts guests might want as well as what someone who is working remotely may require. Highly recommend this beauty in Olga and we will be back for sure!

Beautiful Olga House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this beautiful home, especially it's ideal location to the breathtaking pier and ocean view of Olga. Also just a short drive to Moran State Park and plenty of outdoor adventure choices. The house is well stocked for a perfect relaxing stay, and we enjoyed the fine choices of board games and books provided.
