  • Excellent!

    "We stayed in the deluxe town home with 8 people. It was very comfortable and a ton of fun. We loved hanging out on the outdoor deck, which offers plenty of seating for everyone. We enjoyed hanging out at the fire pit, pool and hot tub. We are looking forward to many more trips to Smugglers Villa. Thanks for a wonderful stay and beautiful memories."

  • Lovely family vacation

    "We enjoyed a beautiful 5 night stay at this lovely property. Our only complaint is that we didn't book it for longer! We had 6 in our party - 3 children (ages 7-12) and 3 adults. The house is a well-kept old farmhouse with so much charm and ample room for us all. The location is amazing. Seriously, less than a 5 minute walk into town (Brown Bear Baking pastries and lattes for breakfast!) but back at the house, we felt completely secluded. (Faint traffic noise from nearby road but the trees and natural shape of the bay keep it minimal.) Even more amazing is the big lawn and beach front. The kids spent hours roaming the shores for shells. We dug up clams at low tide and made clam chowder. (You can walk all the way around the bay then!) Even if you hardly pull any clams out of the sand, just looking for the holes and "spirts" is an adventure in itself. This is a perfect property for kids of all ages - even toddlers. Loads of space to wander around safely while adults can sit and keep watch. Every evening we had a special guest for our dinner out on the porch: a bald eagle (who we named "Sam") sat high in a nearby tree. Easy drive (20min?) to Moran State Park with hiking and swimming in the lakes. We had sunny, warm weather while we were there, but even if it had been cloudy and colder, the house and location are perfect for sitting and reading (partially covered porch,) playing games, walking on the beach etc. ( Oh! And the hot tub! - cannot forget the hot tub.) The one thing to know in advance is that since this is a turn of the century farmhouse, the bedrooms (all upstairs) do not open up into a central hallway. This is a classic design for its time and I'm glad the owners didn't remodel it but it is quite different from modern home design. This means that the bedrooms open up into each other in a circle. So the bunk bed room opens onto the hallway and into the queen bedroom. Then the queen bed room opens up into the upstairs 1/2 bath which then opens up into the king bedroom which opens up again into the hallway. If you are turned around by that description, it just means that to get to the queen bed room or bathroom you have to go through another bedroom (king or bunk bed.) Not a problem for us at all as we just shuffled around who slept where for the best privacy. My husband is from the Seattle area and spent his summers on Orcas growing up. He loved it and we will definitely return next summer for a full week!"

  • An amazing place to explore the wonders of Orcas!

    "The Gnome House is such an incredibly unique and amazing place. What Meg and Bob have created on their property is so wonderful. We went with our young (10 and 9 years old) niece and nephew. The Gnome House itself is fantastic. Just the attention to detail with the building construction is incredible. It's not a fancy place (think more cabin-like than fancy resort), but it has everything you need and is quite comfortable. But the real charm of this place is the property. The kids spent every day down at the pond on the property catching frogs and even swimming. There's a playset with the most amazing view of Deer Harbor. There are acres and acres of trails to explore, pick blackberries. And even a permaculture garden! In the evenings it was roasting smores in the fire pit or sitting in the hot tub under the stars. And Bob was so kind, teaching the kids how to catch frogs and making sure they were having a fantastic time. Really, it was a vacation to remember and we'll definitely be back."

  • Beautiful view from a very comfortable house

    "We are a family of four and we spent a very enjoyable six nights recently at this Orcas home and came back home thoroughly well rested & energized. The house is super comfortable with all the amenities, the kitchen is well provided for and the view of the ocean from the entire house is fabulous. We could hear & see the whales go by from the deck and the scenery is breathtaking. The folks at the management company made it very easy for us to book the house and were very prompt in communicating with us. I would totally recommend anyone to book this house for a nice getaway. It is close to the beautiful parks, waterfront & beaches. The village of Eastsound is an easy 20 minute drive from the house and Mt. Constitution is about 10 mins away."
