our usual place was booked so I was searching for another spot. the first thing I look for is "pet friendly," which this place certainly is. there's even a fenced-in area off the deck for your pup. some pet-friendly rentals can be rustic. this home is beautiful, spotless and quiet with many amenities.
I liked it so much I was inspired to write my first haiku:
the very best place to stay
on Orcas Island =)
Orcas Island is a magical place, and this is a lovely home.
Set on the outermost tip of Samish Island (peninsula), this exclusive estate delivers ultimate privacy and an exclusive perspective of the San Juan Islands. 6 acres, over 1200 ft of private oceanfront, along with outdoor fireplace and professionally maintained swimming pool and...

The allure of this charming home is evident the moment you drive up to it. I had to take a minute to drink in the view before even getting out of the car. I can honestly say that this is the first time I rented a vacation home where I truly didn't have to bring the usual extras. I even felt comfortable using the spices and olive oils as they were fresh and plentiful. The attention to detail was impeccable! The owners of this home truly take care of their guests. Although our family's objective was to "disconnect to reconnect", this home is wired for everything you may need. The little store down the road doesn't have much, but does have what you need most of the time and its employees were very nice island folk! And that goes the same for the two cafe's on the island too. Delicious and Friendly. Should you happen to get island fever while you are there, the easy peasy ferry system makes it a nice quick trip to buzz over to the mainland to find more things to do. I however, was perfectly content cozied up by the fire with my book, a glass of wine or cup of tea, and those distracting views that are absolutely stunning, especially in the early morning hours! Be warned that you will have chores when you stay here however, as it will be your duty to feed the local deer who pretty much come to the sliding glass doors to say that they are ready for their dinner, but don't worry, the owners have thought of that too, and have special deer food provided for you to put in their own food bowls located in the yard. :) This is no doubt that I will return with my family to this home for future escapes. We have nothing but love for the Lummi way of life. Thank you so much for allowing my family much needed decompression time and the chance to exhale for a little while! This trip left a warm wonderful impression for all of us. Thank you!
If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing place to stay while enjoying the San Juan Islands- look no further
Two story home is nestled among large Cedar trees which give some privacy but allow plenty of natural light in as well. Nice water view of San Juan Channel looking into...
The location was great for us. Felt remote, quiet and private but close to center. We loved the wildlife and the local deer. Orca viewing was amazing. Decor is dated but clean and well kept. Brick oven was soo much fun to cook in--now I 'need' one! Adequate space for our family of 5 with three young adults. Kitchen and house well equipped with all one needs.
