  • Heaven on Earth

    "This is my favorite VRBO home we have ever stayed in. Orcas Island is such a magical place, and this house felt like home from the moment we walked in. The pictures don't do it justice. You can tell this house is well loved - the beautiful rugs and furniture, the books - it all feels so modern and comfortable without the kitsch of many other rental houses. Andy is the most friendly and helpful host we have ever dealt with. My kids loved playing outside and were delighted watching deer, bunnies and chickens while we reveled in the gorgeous views and sunsets. Even the neighbors were delightful. We plan to go back to this home again and again and felt truly grateful that we were able to stay there. I would highly, highly recommend!"

  • A Great Place for visiting family members

    "When my uncle and two cousins told us about visiting BI this year, we worried we would have no place for them to stay. We searched out hotel rooms and that just didn't seem comfortable for the length of their stay. We eventually found "Abode By The Sea". What a great find!! Such a beautiful location! As it was their first time to the Pacific Northwest, the views of Mount Rainier and beach access were ideal. Between sight seeing adventures, they were able to relax on the patio and just watch the ferries go by. The one-bedroom apartment was comfortable and homey. My uncle particularly loved the kayaks that were available for use. These Australian relatives have traveled all over the world and they said that "Abode By The Sea" was one of the best accommodations they have ever had. We loved it since it was close to our BI home yet offered privacy and independence to our visiting family. Jenny & Claes were very helpful and great to work with when we were booking this stay. I would definitely recommend "Abode By The Sea" to anyone looking to stay on Bainbridge."

    "My husband and I stayed at the Sea Spray Cottage for 5 days. As we write this , one can only think of hearing the surf rolling up on the pristine beach next to our cottage. We even saw eagles flying by! Lopez Island is wonderful , and staying at the south end of this island is perfect, no crowds. You have the place to yourself. Perfect place for couples. All of the pictures are true. Very, Very CLEAN! The gardens are wonderful too. This property is very well maintained. If peace and quiet is what you desire, Sea Spray is the place. We love you guys and will be back! Hugs, Chris and Kathy"

  • Perfect!

    "My family stayed at the cottage for a week and had an amazing time! The house was clean and comfortable with anything that you could need. We really enjoyed the location being in the country but still close enough to everything that we wanted to do. Beautiful little home and we look forward to staying there again."

Southeast Travel Tips

Traveling to Southeast Washington Vacation Rentals

Most people are familiar with Seattle as being the main entry point into Washington State. Indeed if you are traveling from the East Coast, Canada or another part of the world, Seattle will be your first point of entry into the state. The Seattle Tacoma International airport has good air links with most major cities in North America and the Far East. There are regularly scheduled flights on most major North American airlines. From Seattle, it is possible to drive to the southeast region of Washington but it is a fair distance that will take several hours. If your travel budget allows, one of the better options would be to get a domestic flight to Spokane. Spokane is a regional airport located in the far eastern region of Washington and provides easy access for travelers to that part of the state. The main metropolitan area is around Richland, Kennewick and Pasco. This is approximately 100 miles south of Spokane. Once again, if flying in, you will need to rent a car upon arrival to get to your destination.
