"We (two couples) stayed in this lovely house on the bay for a week. It's perfectly situated just a short walk from "downtown" Eastsound on the bay, right next to a kayak rental and bordering a wetlands, which afforded us regular heron sightings. The house is well-appointed, and we enjoyed everything from early morning coffee on the beach right across the street to a quick sauna after kayaking (in a bit of rain and wind). We recommend staying here absolutely (and hope to come back ourselves again!) with the caveat that the layout (the 2nd bedroom is a separate cottage across the deck, facing the bedroom in the house) is probably ideal for a group that is comfortable with a certain degree of intimacy (the most direct route into the main house from the cottage is through the 1st bedroom, and while you can draw curtains in either bedroom for privacy, it seemed a shame to miss out on the wetlands view, so we left ours open)."

"We loved every single thing about this property. It is so beautiful - even the photos with the description don't (can't!) do it justice. The house itself is cozy and the owners friendly, but it also feels luxurious. I really liked the house's layout - the loft bedroom was a beautiful and comfortable place to sleep, and it allowed you to see the heart-stopping view 24 hours a day. We spent hours on the deck working, sipping coffee, doing yoga...it's all very private and peaceful. And all of the fun and delicious food on Orcas is a short drive away.
This truly was a wonderful and easy get-away, thanks to the organized, helpful, and welcoming owners. We were making plans to come back as soon as we stepped on to the ferry to leave the island!"

"Ah....honestly, we have not stopped talking about our wonderful stay at Delongview. We had four glorious days and nights over mid-winter break at this special getaway. We were blessed with the mild winter days, which also led to starlit nights we were able to enjoy from the comfort of the sofa while gazing out the enormous skylight. Nearly everything you could need is in the house, and if you cannot find it it 1) you have not looked hard enough or, 2) you will find something else that will be a fine substitute. The only exception is if you are traveling with small children, you will want to bring your own equipment and entertainment for them. The movie, game, and book selection is definitely geared for adults, but we were prepared and brought what we needed. As it turns out, the kids ended up chasing each other around in circles in the large great room and kept themselves entertained for many hours doing so! It was a great set up because we could keep an eye on them while still relaxing or while making our meals. The slate floors were definitely very efficient at heating the house - as some have stated almost too efficient, but it also enabled us to just open the doors and let in the fresh air. I have debated whether to suggest an upgrade to the electronics as the TV, while indeed has a flat screen, is not a flat screen TV, and is rather dated. However, the point of spending time at a home like this is that you get away from the electronics. Instead we listened to music on the CD player - had dance parties, and enjoyed our time together without everyone staring at the TV. The wi-fi worked great There was a good selection of books and puzzles for adults. The house was nearly immaculate and I felt comfortable just settling right in without worry that the house needed cleaning. The trees have grown some since the photos were taken, so the water views were not as expansive as the photos seem to indicate, but this did not inhibit the magnificent sunrises from every room in the house. My only complaint is actually my own fault in that I waited until our second night to try out the tub, thus delaying by a day my full relaxation. All I can say is ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! Now I want one too! Caution though - all you need is one or two squirts of the bath gel for MORE than an ample amount of bubbles! Many thanks to Donna for sharing her wonderful home with all it's comforts and special touches. We hope to return sometime soon!"
