Why The Owner chose Orcas

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 location. Clean, adequately stocked. Quiet. Large enough to allow alone time easily. Highly recommend. Would be nice to have access without having to drive into Eastsound.

Great find

  • 5 of 5

We made the reservation for this house in part due to not being able to find other accommodations (hotels). What a lucky find! We were greeted with spectacular views of the water and the setting sun. The house itself had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Highly recommend this property.

The back balcony view is amazing!

  • 4 of 5

We had 2 families of 4 with kids from 5-8. We could have sat on the large back patio for our whole stay and been perfectly happy - it's a gorgeous view of the water and nearby islands through a cleared space of forest. The house fit our needs perfectly and had lots of room. The kids were able to have fun playing in the yard and the shops/restaurants near the orcas ferry terminal is a short walk away. The house is multi level with a lot of stairs so if you have small children under 3 it may be tough to watch over. If we visit again, we would certainly consider the owl house again - we would probably add the option to have it cleaned after we left instead of laboring on our last few hours of our stay to knock out the chore list.

Funky and Fun- Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of ten. There is a suite upstairs for a couple, two suites on the main floor for two couples, and a family space down stairs for up to six but limit for rental is ten. The house is a bit funky but perfect for a group and the view from the deck is awesom.

it is a steep but short walk to the wonderful grocery store and the ferry.

We had a wonderful 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
