  • We can't wait to return next year!!

    "First time every renting a cabin...anywhere. So happy we did! Susan was so quick to respond and answer my questions, and she kept in touch during the time of our reservation to the actual trip. My 10 and 9 yr old girls loved the downstairs bedroom suite because it was "their space". My husband loved the pellet stove...kept us very warm and toasty during wet days. My favorite place was the deck (when weather was warm) and the recliner because it faced the deck. I appreciated all the instructions posted around the home....I didn't want to ruin the house or the next visitors. The kitchen was spacious and I had no issues w/cooking all our meals. The only cons I had were: the stairs are steep so you have to be able bodied to bring your luggage up; the kitchen knives weren't sharp enough (and I missed my knives), and that driveway was steep. That being said, everything else about the house was considered a pro. We were seriously very comfortable and happy. And the location was so perfect...spent a lot of time at Moran State Park. A week stay at Dancing Deer and we only saw 50% of the island. We rolled our deposit over and booked for 2017 at a warmer part of the year so we could go whale watching and go to the farmers market. We can't wait to return here!"

  • Stunning views in this beautiful cottage that has it all!

    "Thank you Mary and Jeffrey for allowing my lady and me to stay in your beautiful cottage. It truly felt like a home away from home. The location is perfect and couldn't have been more convenient for us when we arrived on the sea plane in West Sound. The views were amazing no matter where we were on the property. Between the boat parades in and out of the harbor and the wildlife and nature views we couldn't have asked for more! We lucked out with the weather - sunny every day we were there! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Looking forward to returning soon!"

  • Beautiful views / Wonderful family memories

    "This was our first experience renting a house on Orcas Island and we weren't sure what to expect. When we arrived on April 5, 2016 we were very pleasantly surprised by the wonderful water views from this house. The pictures from the Home Away website don't even do it justice! The house and property were cozy and inviting and we were in awe of the large windows looking out to the picturesque views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. Our kids (10, 6 & 4) really enjoyed playing in the yard while my wife and I relaxed. The room layout was perfect for our family of five. Our two sons really enjoyed staying in the 2nd bedroom (two beds) and our 4 year old daughter loved staying in the master bedroom with my wife and I (two beds in the master). The house was clean and had all the necessary bathroom towels/floormats and the kitchen had plenty of pots/pans/utensils etc... The living room, dining room and kitchen all felt very open (partly due to the layout and partly due to the large windows in each of these areas). With children, I will say that you do have to be cautious when walking down to the water from the stairs off the yard. Not an issue if you are being a watchful parent. The property was about 25 + minutes from the main town (Eastsound, WA) on the island, which made the house feel quiet and secluded. Our family would enjoy the waterfront in the late morning, explore the island during the day, then relax together at the house for a quiet evening. We spent three wonderful nights at this house and we were all sad to have to leave and come back to our regular lives. Our kids immediately asked when we would be able to return for another stay! The owner (Melinda) was helpful with information and quick to answer questions we had before our arrival, which made the experience much easier for us. We were very happy that Melinda allowed us to create spectacular memories at her house for our children!"
