Could have been 5 stars, but...
— Jo/Akiko S., August 2017

"House was very well equipped but our impression declined as we saw some dog hair stuck in the bathtub and previous client's left over female hygiene items etc in the basket. Only one toilet paper in each bathroom as housekeeper apparently forgot to supply extra. Ended up buying our own. Owner responded immediately to this issue. Sorry to drop your rating...."

July 2017

Charming home - wonderful hosts.
— Deborah L., July 2017

"Our 2nd year to stay here--superior to our previous 3 rentals in so many ways. The home is clean, nicely furnished, and well equipped plus the proximity to all Orcas can't be beat. Beds are super comfortable, and both bathrooms are equal to 4 star hotels. The kitchen is well stocked and makes preparing snacks or complete meals a breeze. Grilling on the deck, relaxing in the hot tub, and watching deer, rabbits, birds and kids at play make this a great getaway for couples or families. Hosts have been awesome and go above and beyond to make guests welcome!"

Perfect Island Getaway
— Christi C., July 2017

"The location is amazing - close to the charming town of Eastsound and Moran State Park. Loved the amenities from relaxing in the Hot tub after a long hike to eating smores from the fire pit. It was perfect for our family getaway."

Great home base for exploring the San Juan’s!
— Olivia H., July 2017

"We stayed at this property for four nights over 4th of July weekend and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Very well equipped on every front from pots and pans to board games to lawn chairs. Also super comfortable and homey while being close to town. We made use of the grill and outdoor dining area, the fire pit and the hot tub, and all were in great working order with a nice atmosphere. The only thing we really didn't try was the fancy latte machine...we were thankful that there was a regular coffee pot too :) Would stay at this property again in a heartbeat - thank you so much!"

Excellent find!
— Gary and Vicki F., June 2017

"I wish that we could give this property ten stars!!! We have rented several properties from VRBO and this lovely home is by far the best one yet! Clean, very quite, has everything that you need, close to everything. It was so much fun to have a hot tub and fire pit! If you are going to go to Orcas this property is a must stay!"

MAY 2017

Weekend get-away to our favorite vacation place
— Peg P., May 2017

"Our second visit to this lovely vacation home! And, once again we were not disappointed. This is the coziest and CLEANEST vacation home we have ever rented on Orcas Island! Exceptionally well maintained and very well appointed . . . the owners have considered everything for the comfort and needs of their guests. We prepared several meals and took advantage of the fresh herbs grown near the house. The gas grill works extremely well as does the electric range top and oven. The location is ideally located near Eastsound village so that the two ladies in our group of four could drop off the men for a fishing and prawning charter, and we could go shopping. A perfect place to stay for a perfect weekend, thanks to Todd and Lori, the owners!"

Very clean, very nice amenities
— Mandy W., May 2017

"We stayed at this cute place for two nights during our stay on Orcas Island with our two dogs. It was very clean, very nice finishes and had all the amenities we would need. The back yard is spacious, which was nice for the dogs to explore (on leashes - it is not fenced in) and for us to relax in. We even saw deer in the yard twice! Todd and Lori have a very robust and professional check in and guide book with thorough instructions for your stay. The process was a breeze and we would recommend staying here!"

Awesome vacation home
— Jennifer K., May 2017

"We come to the island because my son in law grew up on orcas . Our daughter and him with their 3 beautiful children live on orcas. So we come to visit 1 to 2 times a year . We love the natural beauty of the island. Your home was perfect for us to enjoy our precious visit with our grandkids . The home was nice and clean, the only thing is I'm very sensitive to chemicals so the airfreshers i had to unplug or put outside, you may want to consider using natural essential oils as a clean safe way to freshen the air. We would diffinetly stay here again 5 stars."

APRIL 2017

perfect family getaway
— Nicole A., April 2017

"We had a great stay. Todd and Lori were super responsive and organized, and they run their rental extremely smoothly and professionally. The house was beautiful and updated. It was the most well-stocked rental we have ever stayed in. Some rentals don't even give you a spare roll of toilet paper, but this rental had everything you could need: condiments, spices, pantry staples, laundry detergent, dishwasher pods, even Bandaids! The kids loved roasting marshmallows in the firepit, soaking in the hot tub, and having movie nights courtesy of the included Netflix streaming. I definitely recommend this rental without reservations."

Nice place, great for families and dogs
— Stacy L., April 2017

"We really enjoyed the hot tub, grill, and fenced in patio. The kitchen was very well stocked with supplies. The location was perfect for us to easily go explore the island. The even provided dog bed, toys, and dishes."

Clean, comfortable, well appointed. Location wasn’t right for us.
— Cora A., April 2017

"This home is clean, very nicely furnished and stocked with whatever you may need for a very comfortable vacation. The beds were very comfortable, the hot tub clean and ready to use. There was a really cool Bluetooth shower head and a soaker tub in the master bath. Plenty of towels were provided. I am not giving 5 stars due to the location. The home is located in a sort of informal cul-de-sac behind a Chevron station. The other mobile homes and houses are pretty run down and you can see the gas station from the hot tub. There are trees someone blocking the gas station view but we could still see it and we didn't like that aspect of this property. If we had traveled with children, I think this home would have been perfect as it has a big yard. We were hoping for the ability to walk to Eastsound and this property was too far for that - our misjudgement. Not the owners misrepresentation. All and all, this property is very clean and comfortable. The owners have done a great job appointing this home."

Clean, comfortable and clear communication
— Krista M., March 2027

"We loved this house! Todd was very pleasant to deal with and we enjoyed all the information that the hosts provided about fun things to do in the area and details about the house. The house was very clean, had everything we needed and the location was peaceful and close to the beach and nearby stores. Would definitely recommend this place."

"What a great home and great location on Orcas. Super clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all the necessities. They even had a cute little welcome snack bag for us! It was so nice to have a clean hot tub to climb into after a full day of hiking. We will be back and have already recommended this home to someone for their trip."

Perfect Getaway
— busybeemom96, January 2017

"Our expectations were met at this wonderful home! Yes, we can call it home because it truly felt like it. I am very selective when it comes to cleanliness, comfort, style, and this place satisfied all these areas, plus it's pet friendly! I love the modern contemporary décor, and all the high-end touches in the bathrooms and all throughout the house. Beds are super comfy and towels plush! Found everything we needed in the kitchen (complete with utensils, dishes, pots/pans, etc. -- they even provide the sponges for washing dishes!). All my questions were answered promptly before and during our stay and there was regular communication from the owners. We will definitely be back! Thanks Todd and Lori for this beautiful and well-maintained home ... Love it!"

...looking forward to another visit.
— Donna F., January 2017

"We were in need of a restorative and quiet getaway. Orcas Island offseason is ideal for a quiet & restful time, yet we wanted warmth & comfort of home with all the amenities. We considered other sites that were cabin-like, rural and/or rustic. In the end we chose this simple yet well-stocked & super clean home. It is close to Eastsound, an easy drive to the parks and trails, and for me, a drive to Doe Bay for sauna day use. We enjoyed having the full kitchen, shower stalls, lovely landscaped yard, & hot tub. The bed is huge, firm, & comfy. A comfy dog bed was provided, which our guy enjoyed. Owners were responsive quickly when we needed help getting the tub started. We made good use of the leash lead for our dog. Neighbors are nearby yet we had privacy and plenty of parking. The owners provide plenty of materials to learn to use the home electronics. We're looking forward to another visit in warm weather to grill on the deck."
