My husband and I went to deer harbor this past weekend and the place had several issues.
1. The hot tub- the lid was left off and water level was low when we arrived. Someone came and filled the tub but in 24 hours it went from 92 to 99 degrees. It looks like the hot tub is a problem in multiple reviews and since there are so many problems with it, why is it still listed? We chose this place based solely off the hot tub and we couldn’t go in it. I have a photo of the brown foam floating in it as well.

2. The fireplace rattles. This was also mentioned in reviews as a problem yet it still exists. It is what I determined the heat source. We woke up this morning and it was 56 degrees in the place because we couldn’t sleep with the rattle of the fireplace. How can this not be in the info for the place as opposed to an amenity but a nuisance.

3. The bed creaks. Anytime there is a slight movement in the bed, it creaks something horrible.

4. The WiFi was 1 or 2 bars the entire time.

5. The fire stick didn’t work. Unable to stream with our own fire stick because the WiFi was so weak.

This place is one of the more expensive STUDIO on orcas island and was so much of a let down. Nothing was as advertised and after all the Vacasa fees, it came out to $300 a night. I can not believe after being made aware of all the issues with this place you still rent it out and screw people out of the relaxing weekend they think they are paying for.
Manager response:
Ashley, thanks for staying with us. We apologize for the multiple issues you experienced during your stay. We are disappointed to hear that we dropped the ball this time, as this is not the high standard of guest satisfaction and cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. Our local team has been able to resolve multiple issues since your stay. We have put a new bed in the room and put a new fireplace in as well. We have worked to improve the wifi single, although because of being on a remote island wifi can be problematic for all on the island. We hope to impress you on a future stay!

Lovely location. It was peaceful with pleasant views of the landscape. The hot tub was clean and hot. The beds are comfortable and the space is clean. It was disappointing that the heating unit in the main room rattled and that we were only given two towels for three people. Luckily we brought our own.

We enjoyed the hot tub and the TV and fireplace. It was a cozy cabin and the location is very good. The top bedding was not clean and the floors were not swept. Also the bed was very, VERY creaky. We wouldn't stay here again. We were disappointed especially given the price.

Pleasant room with beautiful view. Matthew's restaurant next door has good dinner options if you like BBQ. Quiet, relaxing environment. Wi-Fi was good. Nice TV with Netflix.

My husband and I stayed in this cabin for 4 nights. Check in was self explanatory. We loved this cabin. It was the perfect size for us. We loved the private hot tub and the BBQ grill on the patio. The view was beautiful and we saw several deer in the area. The only thing I wish the company provided was instructions on how to use the hot tub. We were very confused on how to turn on the jets. The jets eventually turned on by themselves, but it would be nice if there was something to let us know how the hot tub worked. Otherwise, this cabin was perfect for us for a romantic getaway.
Manager response:

A beautiful place for family to gather and enjoy a slower pace.. We really appreciated the Barbque restaurant next door, the kitchen amenities, and the hot tubs. Our grandchildren and pups couldn't have been happier. The small bedroom, without a closet, could benefit from a few hooks for hanging clothes and a mirror not hung over bed where it currently resides. Minimally eight to ten plates, glasses, cups, etc makes sense for the lovely long table which a group can gather around.

All in all it was pretty good.
Hot tub had issues the entire time.
Only 1 roll of TP for 4 days. Had to stop at market.
Other than those 2 mild issues it was relaxing, quiet and had great views.

The view, the hot tub. Did I mention the view? Had a nice time

This is a great spot in Deer Harbor. There is a smokehouse restaurant right next to it and activities such as horseshoes and corn hole on the grounds. The cabin provides basic needs and has AC which was really nice. The wrap around deck was perfect. Small view of the harbor and multiple places to sit and relax. The hot tub was very clean, relaxing in the hot tub and staring up at the stars was the best way to unwind in the evenings. Recommend and will consider again for future trips to the island.

Very sweet mother-in-law unit. Very beautiful views all around from Sunset Cottage only issue was hearing sounds from occupants in neighbor cottage but expected for a unit this nearby. Just know it's not a solo unit, otherwise the hot tub is a great retreat from city life and right in with the wildlife of Orcas.

Came here with my daughter for a quick spring break trip. The cottage was perfect for us both. Will book again!

This property was super clean, the hot tub hot and the prop manager was welcoming and attentive.

I can never say enough about staying here. The location is the best. The cabins are always perfect. We have stayed in 3 separate ones over the years and always happy. We were a little disappointed that the restaurant ran out of prime rib because we were pretty excited for that. But totally understandable considering the situation.
We stay here every time we come to the island

The wife and I stayed in the Sunset View Cabin and really enjoyed our stay. The hot tub took a while to heat up but was really nice and offers some great vistas of the sounds and surrounding hills. Room was clean, comfy and the customer services was prompt and friendly. Orcas Island is now our favorite island in the San Juans. We will be back for sure this summer!

Lovely location and set-up. Spent more of the chilly days in the hottub which was perfect for 2 people. Also, the mattress was crazy comfortable! Thanks for a perfect little cozy winter getaway.
