Recent Orcas Island reviews
A slice of heaven.
"As the description says, it is at the end of the road. Though there are neighbors, the cottage is very remote. We, my husband, my daughters aged 11 & 13 and my mom-in-law were all quite taken with the idea of 'nothing & everything to do' at the same time. The cottage was very well equipped and accommodated our needs. We played cards, put together puzzles and became totally obsessed with looking for eagles and Orcas. We spotted the local Eagles but unfortunately we're not visited by Orcas. We had sunshine most of the time. Even the occasional marine layer did not put a damper on our get away. The cottage is clean, has a nice layout and has comfortable beds. If you are looking for a place to hangout inside and out with amazing views of the San Juans and off the beaten path then this is your place. Not to be missed, Melinda was very helpful and communicative."

"My husband and I along with our daughter spent two nights in this house for a quick getaway while visiting Seattle. The television did not work and a quick call to the owner left me with the impression that she knew about the problem before our arrival. If you plan to do any serious cooking, the kitchen is barely big enough for one person. Also, bring you own skillets because the ones provided need to be replaced. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, oils, and condiments. The water view was not what I expected after seeing the photos but Orcas is beautiful no matter where you stay. All in all we had a great time. The hot tub was an added bonus and very much enjoyed in the evenings while sipping a glass of wine. Also, very comfy beds. Perfect for a short getaway."

"We booked this beautiful home and guest house for our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. My grandson called it a "mansion" when we walked through the door! The owners were very attentive and helpful and always close by if we needed anything. What a perfect vacation from the working world. The pool table saw many contests, and the lap pool and hot tub were used daily by all. The sunsets were amazing. The grounds spacious with lots of open areas for the kids to explore. Beautiful views from various seating areas on the decks. Very convenient to the ferry landing too. So happy we found Orcas Oasis. Thank you Barb and Bob for a wonderful time."

"This beautiful home was perfect for us - one week with two couples, and another with our kids and grandchild. We drank in the glorious views, relaxed in the hot tub, forayed down to the private beach, and explored the island. Amenities in the house are surprisingly complete. We just added food. Basics and spices, appliances, even a bread maker were at our disposal. Plentiful videos, toys, and books kept our grand daughter busy in the evenings.
You are secluded here, very private, not close to town. Neighbors on one side, never visible behind a curtain of thick trees, were nonetheless ready to help with directions, and cleared the beach path when a tree broke and blocked it. Quiet folks up across the road came to notify us about a temporary power outage. The landlords, Anita and Conrad, were always available by phone and helpful if needed.
This house was our little piece of heaven!"
