"A lot of love has gone into this home. Built by the owners, it is hand crafting at its best. Even the furniture is built by hand.
Everything we could need has been thought of. The kitchen had every possible convenience, there were even some special goodies awaiting us!
Firewood was stacked outside for the fire pit, and hammocks strung. VERY PEACEFUL!"

"This was the best vacation I have ever had. This home is so beautiful, it feels magical. I especially noticed the Zen feeling of calmness while I was sitting on the deck enjoying the magnificent ocean view. I heard only the sounds of the gentle waves hitting the shore, while birds flew and sang all around me.
This is a gorgeous home decorated with a nautical theme that really blends into its natural surroundings. I felt as if I was sailing on a ship. I especially loved dimming the nautical lights at night while enjoying the warm glow of the fireplace. This is the perfect romantic getaway. The lighted crab is darling, too!!!
This home is on the water with the most spectacular sunset views I have ever seen. Every night we enjoyed breathtaking sunsets displaying vibrant colors found in a rainbow. Orcas Island is a treasure. The wild life is abundant. We saw many bald eagles, deer, birds, wild turkeys, and otters. From the deck we watched a family of River Otters eat fish. It was fascinating. Seeing Minks from the deck was a special treat. First, I caught a glimpse of a small animal with bright brown fur run along the path below. Then another ran along the grassy area before disappearing into the brush. A short while later, we saw the Minks swimming and playing in the water and along the shore. They were so cute to watch. I was amazed at how many Bald Eagles I saw soaring above hunting for fish. One Bald Eagle perched itself on a tree branch close to the deck.
I highly recommend this vacation rental. Don't forget to bring your binoculars!"

"As I am hiding in my bedroom back in Texas, listening to a house full of shrieking teenagers, I am transporting myself back in time (one month) to the Waterhouse. My husband and I stayed for three nights. We holed up at the Waterhouse except for a few excursions into town to shop at King's Market (we did stop there right off the ferry but needed to add a little to our groceries once we decided we were definitely staying put), antique and used book shopping, our Christmas ornament for our travel tree, and finding Joe to make my beautiful meat and cheese boards (which is a whole 'nother story). We had all the windows open the first day due to our luggage unloading and unpacking but quickly cranked them back down and had the fireplace going, which quickly got lit every morning for coffee and was great to have on at night with wine. We were able to prepare wonderful meals due to all the utensils available and that wickedly cool propane cookstove! At our daily treks to the cove, we found starfish, sea glass, awesome driftwood, and beautiful rocks. Oh, and the grass around the property was such a lovely emerald green! Eagles, ducks, sea lions (at least that's what my husband thinks he saw), and deer came to visit us, too. The house is situated on the property so that all of the rooms have a great view of the ocean right outside the windows. It was great to wake up and look out the window first thing laying in bed to see the water. I only wish we could have experienced an awesome lightning storm and/or whales. I already feel relaxed just picturing all of this again. Suzanne was awesome!! Thank you so much for being so trusting with your property to allow people to visit and enjoy it! We will be back."
