“Outstanding Views & So Relaxing”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My husband and I have only been here a few days and already it feels like home. The home is beautiful and has everything you need provided. I am very picky about rentals being cleaned well and I was so happy to see the place was immaculate. The beds are very comfortable and each room has individual climate control. Susan and Charles are great hosts who want to make sure your stay is memorable. The view from the kitchen, living room, upstairs bedroom, and both decks are outstanding. Very close to Moran State Park and Eastsound shops. We are so lucky that we don't have to leave for 8 more days. We will be back.

“Just what we needed”
Reviewed 11 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Spent nearly a week here with wife and family (two girls 17 and 12). It was a very relaxing and comfortable "home base" for us to explore Orcas. We loved the spaciousness and the views of the sound. Everything was in clean, working order and we were able to set a relaxing "summer pace" during our stay. Lots to do and explore in the area. From Moran Park, to Deer Harbor we experienced a little bit most every day and got a real feel for island life. It was just perfect for our needs.

“Too much personal stuff and rules”
Reviewed 11 July 2012 for a stay in April 2011

Beautiful house and views, clean and comfortably furnished. Downstairs area seperate enough to suit teens with adults upstairs. Drawback was all the (very) personal items belonging to owners in many drawers and cupboards. Felt like we were intruding in their house. Lots of signs ("keep out") and instructions, felt like a lot of rules. No deck furniture was out. Accessibility to Rosario not as easy as listing implies, owner said kids could use pool there, not so. Difficulty reaching property manager with questions (re tv & pellet stove)upon arrival.

We appreciate all guest reviews. We do have some kitchen cabinets and drawers labeled "Owner's Storage" and also reserve the upper shelves of 2 of the large closets and some drawer space for our personal belongings. There are no signs in this home that say "Keep Out". Fortunately the home has ample storage left for our guests both in the kitchen and bedroom closets. Typically we have a very positive response to our instructive signs. During the low season (these guests visited in early April 2011) we do keep our teak deck furniture covered, but in future will make sure deck furniture is easily accessible for our low season guests. Rosario Resort is a 10 minute walk or a 5 minute drive. The outdoor pool is available for guests from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a fee, as stated in our listing. The Spa at Rosario has an indoor pool and offers day passes year round. In the event the Manager cannot be reached, all guests are welcome to call us on our home or cell phones.
