Why The Owner chose Orcas Island

Years ago we discovered Orcas Island and feel very lucky to own a "piece of the rock".

We know you will enjoy the island as we do.

The deer, birds, and raccoons visit often and when you see an Orca whale you'll be thrilled every time.

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

We went with 6 teen boys to celebrate a birthday. The house is perfect for people having their own space. The pictures don't do it justice at all! It's relaxing and peaceful. The only major drawback was not having WiFi, which was hard with teens. Overall a great experience! Highly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your Orcas visit with us. This is a spacious house in a setting without really close neighbors, so we're glad you were able to enjoy it with your larger group. One of the ways the owners are able to keep costs down to the guest is fewer frill amenities, but we do understand that technology is difficult for the younger ones to do without! We'll pass along your thoughts to the owners. Thanks very much and come see us again soon! Karen - Cherie L. Lindholm Real Estate

Buyer Beware

  • 2 of 5

My family has been renting VRBO houses consistently for five years and and have always had excellent experiences, but this was unfortunately our first unpleasant rental experience due to the property manager. During the rental process, we elected to pay to have our house cleaned and as such, left the house uncleaned. I came home from vacation to a list written by the cleaning lady complaining about cleaning and doing laundry (her job.) In the same letter, we also received a note from the property manager stating that she was, "surprised to find the house in its condition as you did not pre-pay for cleaning/laundry service per contract terms" because she did not do her job and add the cleaning charge when we paid (after we had to remind her that our payment was due.) And even though the house is right at the ferry stop, the property manager required us to pick up and drop off the keys 20 minutes away rather than having a lockbox as every other rentals provide.

If you are looking for a large house and do not mind the drawbacks I have mentioned, then this may be the place for you. The house itself is good - dealing with the people who run it - not good.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The guest is asked to begin the rental process by sending in the Rental Application. When the guest does not fill in the financials, I do, but I did not go back to look at your email to see that you did request cleaning/laundry service. Therefore you were not charged those fees and those services were not listed on your contract, which apparently neither of us noticed. My apologies. When

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous views! We loved that the master and an additional bedroom had their own private decks In addition to the large shared deck off the main living space. The location was perfect, very private yet walking distance to the ferry, grocery store and restaurants. We enjoyed it so much we would like to return and stay longer!

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous views on multiple large decks. Great location, and well equipped kitchen. Some quirky bathroom arrangements - but we had a wonderful time and will come back here.
