You have a great view of the harbor from the deck and hottub.

What started off as a misunderstanding and bad experience, turned into a great time all due to Dillon. When we arrived at our place, we realized it was really only a “hotel room.” we were expecting a small place, but with a kitchen. We had already bought some food and was hoping to cook dinner. There was no “front desk” so we could not talk to anyone directly. I found the number for Vacasa and left a voicemail, which I did get a response to the next day. I had also been contacted by the manager who welcomed me and gave me the contact info for Dillon, who would be able to help if I needed anything. Dillon went above and beyond in getting what we needed. He asked for a list of items I would need for cooking (the unit only had a microwave and a small fridge) and he delivered them the next morning. We did not even have coffee or a coffee maker in the room when we arrived. Dillon even offered to pick up coffee for us from a local bakery in town. Like I said, he went above and beyond. As for the room itself, although it was small, it had a great view and a nice big bathroom. The shower pressure is very weak, although the tub is great. We also had trouble locking our door. Basically, it didn’t work. Not very comforting, even though we didn’t have any valuables to worry about. Also, there was another family across the way and we shared a main door. That door did work, but you had to make sure you locked it. We talked to the family next door so they would be sure to lock that door. We were on the first floor next to the ice machine, which was great. The property itself is kinda confusing as it is shared with the hotel, but nothing at the hotel (pool, etc) is accessible for the “condo” guests. Also, it is very hilly. Steep hills. But we did visit the museum at the hotel and walk around. They also have live music in the evenings. It’s worth checking out.

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.

How to Get to Orcas Island

Like its neighbor Lopez Island, Orcas Island is accessible only by boat or plane. If you're not flying in, the Washington Sate Ferry system travels between Anacortes and all four islands that make up the San Juans, with the ferry trip itself producing quite a few lovely photo opportunities before you even reach your destination.

Things to Do on Orcas Island

Located to the north, right in center of the island, the picturesque downtown area of Eastsound is a hubbub of activity, with many opportunities for exploring the small shops, bookstores, cafes, and museums that make this island so special. History buffs will delight in the historic homes and buildings that make up the quiet neighborhoods of Eastsound, some of the structures dating back to the late 1800s.

The island is also a haven for artisans. Sculptors, painters, potters, photographers and more all show their creations in galleries throughout the island, with a concentration in Eastsound. Be sure to stop by Orcas Island Pottery, the oldest pottery studio in the Pacific Northwest. After you work up an appetite browsing all the handmade vases, bowls, and other pieces, dining out around town also offers an eclectic mix of options - from Smoked Salmon Benedict at the New Leaf Cafe to Thai Hot and Sour Soup and Potstickers at The Kitchen.

Outdoor Activities on Orcas Island

From your Orcas Island beach rental there are numerous outdoor activities to consider. Will it be an afternoon of golfing at the Orcas Island Golf Course? Maybe a morning spent biking the rolling island hills or a lazy Saturday spent on the water, taking part in one of the many whale watching expeditions based right on the island.

Expansive Moran State Park on the east side of the island has almost 40 miles of trails to explore over 5,000 acres of forest. Right on Cascade Lake, it is also a popular destination for swimming, boating, fishing, and picnicking - you'll never run out of things to do here. For an amazing panoramic view, hike the up to the 2,000-foot summit of Mount Constitution and gaze out over both the US and Canada - you will definitely be rewarded for making this challenging, altitude-gaining hike with an amazing, one-of-a-kind vista.

A peaceful stay at a charming Orcas Island vacation rental will allow you to explore all the amazing dining, outdoor activities, and sightseeing options that this beautiful and unique spot has to offer!
