"We stayed at the absolutely fabulous house to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday! We were there with our son and daughter in law. They live in Seattle and we in Texas. I cannot say enough nice things about this house! The location was very private and calming. We had planned on doing some sightseeing, but the house was so incredible we stayed there most of the time! We had already planned several meals out, but when I saw how well equipped the kitchen was, I wished I had planned to cook.
The only thing that we found to be a little out of line of our expectations, was the lack of the little things- like no tissues, toilet paper at the end of the rolls, no soft soap for washing hands or showering. We found an almost empty container soap in one of the bathrooms and used that. Bought toilet tissue and tissues the next day.
We found the owner extremely easy to deal with. I always like to talk to the people I rent from. She was very prompt with the paperwork!
We have dreams of returning to this very SPECIAL home in the near future"

"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."

"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."

"The pictures don't really do the property justice. It is very nicely finished and has very broad views over the island and surrounding water. Having a pool and hottub is great and there's a large field as well if you have kids that want to run around. We stayed here for a 70th birthday and very much enjoyed the experience it worked well for 2 families and the grandparents."
