About Paul and Leslee

Live in Portland, Oregon. We have been going to the San Juans since college - many years ago.

Paul and Leslee purchased this house in 1998

Why Paul and Leslee chose Orcas Island

One of the unique locations in the world. Located in the San Juan Island banana belt of NW United States. Incredible marine life. Olga is a picture perfect hamlet with an historic post office and the Olga Store (literally on post cards)

What makes this house unique

Grab your favorite refreshment (and company) and hang out on the dock and enjoy the absolutely spectacular view. Watch eagles fly overhead, and the ferries and sailboats in the distance, and be mesmerized by the silence at night.

This place was absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

This place is updated and newly modeled. Everything is new inside the house. The outside has a small deck where you can enjoy a glass of wine or coffee. The internet works really well. The Wi-Fi had some issues but me being a computer guy was easily able to fix the internet.

The kitchen was absolutely beautiful. Lots of Windows which is really nice. You're very close to the water and surrounding areas in town.

This place is also for sale. If we didn't have college tuition to pay for I would have strongly considered making an offer on having a second home on the island. We met the owners when we arrived and they were super nice. I highly recommend this place.

Lovely Olga House on Orcas Island

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our first trip to Orcas Island Aug 14 - Aug 17, 2017. The Olga House was a clean, comfortable, and relaxing retreat. Our adult kids and grandchildren camped at nearby Moran State Park. The Olga House was just a few minutes drive from the Park and a convenient place to gather for meals. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with all the necessary tools for meal preparation; and so many extra touches like fresh flowers on the kitchen table, and lots of games for the kids and interesting books to read. We felt like we were staying at the home of friends who had thought of everything to make our stay pleasant.

Idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with partial water views just a short 1/2 block to the Olga dock. Excellent kayaking and boating. Walk to get oysters and great fish, breakfast and lunch at the cafe down the road, and to a short hiking trail. Quiet, friendly village (including many deer). House is beautifully equipped for cooking and grilling, listening to music and watching wildlife. Short drive to Moran State Park with Cascade Lake swimming and plenty of hiking.

There can't be a better place to stay. I totally loved the place

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect .. I didn't exactly know what to expect before I arrived but once I did, I was totally impressed and knew I made the right choice. The Olga house was so much better than I could have imagined and extremely relaxing with a great location. In the future it will always be my first choice.

Pilot your boat from the mainland (Bellingham, Anacortes, Seattle...) directly to Olga House. Private buoy guarantees moorage if Olga Dock is full. You can fish, crab, bird watch, and kayak right off of Olga Dock.
