Great place, close to Deer Harbor. Well equipped kitchen. Cozy and nice...

  • 4 of 5

Don't let the previous, somewhat negative, review scare you off. NOTHING was inconvenient for us with the keys and garbage. The procedure for both is clearly explained before arrival. The house is nice. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. You can get anywhere on the island in a short time (in a car) on decent country roads. Very well described in the listing. Would do it again. Two couple shared the home and it had everything we needed. Cell, TV and internet service is spotty but who cares...

We have been very experienced renters all over the world, and have NEVER had to drive 25+ minutes ( or anywhere else) to pick up and return house keys. What about a lock box?? Also, we have never had to pay to have garbage removed, take it to the dump ourselves, or TAKE IT WITH US (as we ended up having to do). Reaching the island late at night (due to a ferry issue) with 2 little kids, it was very inconvenient to have to find the real estate office in the dark, and then find the rental (another 25 min.) in the dark. The rental itself was adequate; and the fire pit was lovely. The view pictured was to the left of the cottage. There was no view in front of the cottage, as it is completely blocked by trees. The loft bedroom had a partial curtain, but no real privacy. Good price, but a bit out of the way.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We do make arrangements with guests who ask if they may leave the keys at the rental. I'm sorry you didn't contact us about such options before expressing displeasure. We are easy to work with, really! Come see us again. Karen

Great place on Orcas Island!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean and had all the amenities one would expect to find in a vacation house. It was also incredibly affordable. It's a little off the beaten path, but the reality on an island of this size is that you can get anywhere within a half an hour and most places within 15 minutes. Also, the fire pit in the back yard is a nice touch, you just have to buy wood in town.

We had two couples, and the bedrooms provided plenty of privacy. For the price, this is a great option on Orcas.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review and visiting Orcas with us! We feel it's important that not every accommodation cost and arm and a leg, so we are pleased you appreciated the stay in our house. There are so few fire pits due to the constant fire danger, that we're glad you enjoyed the one at this house. It is pretty special and neat! Come see us again. Karen Cherie L. Lindholm RE
