House was clean and looked exactly like the photos
Megan A. Sep 2021
We had a wonderful stay at this home! We have stayed at a handful of vacation rentals and this one was hands down the best. Clean, inviting, cozy, nicely decorated, well-stocked kitchen, beautiful views and close to the cute East Sound town. We would absolutely recommend highly and stay here again.

We had an amazing stay in this home. It was very clean and was decorated beautifully. The local manager sent an email prior to check-in and was available to us the entire time.

This is our second time staying here and we can't rave enough. Fantastic spot for a family vacation. The house has all the amenities and a great water view.
Terri W. Jul 2021
Beautiful home with beautiful view!
Jeremy R. Jul 2021
This place is amazing. The owner has thought of everything. The backyard is amazingly relaxing. You’re able to hang out with bald eagles and watch a hummingbird at the same time. The river otters swimming out front put the icing on the cake. The design of the house is perfect and if it were possible I would give this house 10 stars. Orcas Island as a whole is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.
Beth K. Apr 2021
This home is beautiful. It's set on the water where we watched the most gorgeous sunset. Fully stocked kitchen, meticulously clean, nicely decorated- it couldn't have been better.

Orcas beach cottage is a beautiful home with fantastic views. The home is just as pictured and very clean with an extremely well-equipped kitchen. It's a great location and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at the cottage house for a few days. The check-in process was super easy. When we walked in, we were blown away with the impressive view of the water as well as the beautiful of the living room. It felt more like a fully furnished home than a cottage. As far as amenities go, this place surpassed our expectations. We didn’t have to search for towels or toiletries; they were in laid out for us. The fireplace provided warmth and ambience. We were plenty warm on a cold Christmas morning.

What stands out from other rentals was management. I emailed them Christmas Eve not expecting a response until the next day. I was surprised at how quickly they responded.

The home is incredibly close to town. It was incredibly easy to order from one of the restaurants and drive to town to pick it up. Did I mention the views? Water and mountains greet you in the morning and stay with you as night falls.

Overall, this home made our Christmas memorable.

We had an amazing stay in this home. It was very clean and was decorated beautifully. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to make delicious meals. We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace, playing card games during the day, and sitting outside around the fire pit at night. Very lovely home with nice details. We'll definitely stay there again.

This house is very well maintained and very clean. It has a beautiful view and is close to Eastsound. Beds were very comfortable. Only exception was that the living room furniture is not comfortable.
Nimrod V. Sep 2020
As the title of this review suggests this vacation rental is a perfect gateway home.

The internal and external design is examplery in practically, comfort and beauty.

We will return for sure!

This Orcas Beach cottage was just what was needed as a reprieve from the daily grind getting through the COVID-19 pandemic. So many spaces to relax both indoor and outdoors (had both sunny and shady spots for good variety). The sunsets were amazing every night, and the kitchen was great for cooking up favorite meals, and the bedrooms were calm and restful (comfortable beds!).

I appreciated the starter "basics" that met our needs (paper towels, dish soap, toiletries in the bathrooms) as well as plenty of towels for bathrooms, and beach towels (we used on the outdoor furniture). They had all the necessary needs for the kitchen, and the extra touches of decor made us feel like we were at a beach cottage.

The location is close to Eastsound, for easy convenience to the market, restaurants (some take out only, or outdoor seating). Really enjoyed Rosario Resort (Cascades bar and grill) for the halibut fish and chips, Madrona Bar and Grill (crab bisque), Brown Bear Baking (sandwiches were amazing) as well as Pizzeria Portofino (wow, great crust on that pizza!)

I would highly recommend coming here, and we will keep on our list to come back again in the future.

Love every minute there. Checkin and checkout are so easy. The house is spacious and simply beautiful. We especially enjoyed the spacious living room and the lovely fireplace.
Kelly L. Sep 2019
This rental was beyond our expectations. The location was perfect, just minutes from the downtown Eastsound. The decor was darling and the home was immaculate and well stocked for cooking. The private beach and setting was magical. We definitely highly recommend this rental.
Stephanie K. Aug 2019
We could not have been more pleased with this home. It was the perfect getaway for our first visit to Orcas Island. We were traveling with our 4 young adult children. Plenty of room to spread out. The home was beautiful and came complete with everything needed. We so enjoyed the view from the back sitting area and wish we had a few more days to soak it in.
Hope to come back!! Cannot say enough about how beautiful it is.
Jeffrey B. Jun 2019
Home was well-appointed with everything we needed and tastefully decorated. The location was perfect for us - incredible views from the back and peaceful, but easy drive into town. We’d absolutely stay here again.
Tana B. Nov 2018
The house is compact but very nice. However, there is no real beach access as the bottom of the stairs are washed out; the stairs down to the beach that do still exist are very slippery - my sister fell quite hard while walking on them. We had no internet for our stay, despite calling Vacasa for help. Got a response to unplug the router...which didn't work and we didn't get any follow up when we contacted the local Vacasa manager to say as much. The heat was super slow to warm up - only wall units, and only one to warm the kitchen/living room/dining room. Also, the house doesn't really sleep 9 - 9 is only if you were to use the very uncomfortable low futon and the baby pack and play.
Manager response:
We are glad this guest enjoyed this nice beachside home. We apologize for being unable to address the internet connectivity issues during their stay. The service provider was experiencing technical difficulties that were not resolved until after this guest's stay. We do hope they enjoyed their stay and look forward to hosting them again!

Orcas beach cottage is an absolutely beautiful home & getaway. The pictures and description are 100% accurate. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. The kitchen even has a slow cooker, kettle, french press and more. The yard was in full bloom, even in late September. It's obvious that the owners love their home & yard and they keep it very well maintained. It would be nice if the stairs that were wiped out could be replaced, as you could then easily access the private beach during low tide. We will definitely return to Orcas Beach Cottage in the future!
Max A. Sep 2018
This rental was well beyond our expectations. This lovely home has unobstructed views of the water and the beautiful scenery of Orcas Island. The gorgeous family room and kitchen are well-equipped. The four bedrooms (two are en-suite) also have lovely furnishings and the bathrooms are wonderful. Additional bonuses are the laundry room and small office. The house is well-prepared for children and infants. I cannot think of how this house could have been more wonderful for our family and our vacation.
Judith T. Aug 2018
This was one of two houses we rented for a family reunion. It was a beautiful, airy, well stocked house that had plenty of space for privacy and a comfortable living room for relaxing and visiting. The view was gorgeous, and the whole experience was relaxing and peaceful. We were just 2 minutes walk from the “ big house” down the street where the rest of the family was staying. We could walk to town, admire the garden or read in the back garden while watching the sunset. We were totally happy with this place.
Janet H. Jul 2018
This house is gorgeous ! The view is breathtaking, I could sit out back all day long. Everything looks brand new and Beautiful . The only draw back for us was there is NO AC and NO cable or satellite TV, the day was really hot and the house was hot inside as well, we turned the TV on to watch the Mariners and it does come with cable or satellite , so we couldn't watch during our stay! The high end quality of this house should have those amenities !! (pillows are not comfortable either) Next time I would just pack my own pillow...
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest taking the time to provide us with this feedback! Please be assured we will pass these comments along to the homeowner for their consideration. None of our homes in this area have air conditinoing; in fact, very few homes on Orcas Island have air conditioning. Most homes are set up with basic Roku TV service with Netflix and others apps. We suggest guests please read the advertised amenities carefully to ensure they are getting everything they want on their vacation. Thank you!
Karen W. Jul 2018
We loved our stay at this wonderful house on North beach. The house looks exactly like the photos. It was spotless, has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and an amazing view. The master and downstairs bedrooms have queen beds. The other two bedrooms with bunk beds and a pull out bed that can be a twin or pull out to a king give you lots of flexibility for guests. We hope to be back again!
Chalene T. Jul 2018
This is my favorite house we’ve stayed at on orcas! Close to town, waterfront access, and the house itself was amazing! The views were to die for! We will definitely be staying here again.
Angela A. Feb 2018
We had a very relaxing time. It's got a lot of wireless stuff in terms of entertainment but we didn't use any of it. Read a good book out loud instead.
Akasha W. Jan 2018
Beautiful spot. It was January but watching the storms roll in was amazing. Super relaxing.
Stephanie O. Jan 2018
We loved this house. Beautiful views and location! Was great for two families with children!
Pat K. Jul 2017
This beautiful home is a delight to stay in. Very new and well designed. The furnishings are in top condition. All the kitchen items and cookware are ready for you. The views are terrific, being on the water. Enjoyed traveling around the island. No signals, just stop signs. Went Orca whale watching out of Deer Harbor. Saw many pods. So exciting. Wish we could have rented it for a longer stay.
Harry B. May 2017
The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This home is beyond perfect. It is brand new and every detail has thought and warmth behind it. It looks like it's out of a magazine. The owners have thought of everything from laundry needs to picnic gears. It was perfect for a family of 5 and grandparents getaway. We will definitely be back.
Deborah B. Jan 2017
The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The perfect home and location to spend a quiet weekend away from the hustle and bustle. The cottage is a dream and we really enjoyed cooking several meals in the fully stocked kitchen. I even enjoyed doing dishes since the view from the sink is breathtaking. We would love to come back for a summer stay.
