    David H from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We booked this just a few days before our arrival. The property manager was very prompt in getting us all the check in information and details about the rental. The apartment is above an office building, which we liked because it was very quiet and private during the weekend. Parking was easy. The location is great too, just a two minute walk to the center of town and there was a large grassy park on the water right in front of the rental. It worked perfectly for our group of 6!

    We stayed in this condo for a weekend wedding on Orcas a few weeks ago. We had 2 couples staying 2 nights. What a great place! Everything was provided that we could need and the location was great! We walked to town for breakfast Saturday morning and the views from the unit were stunning! I would definitely rent this place again and recommend it to friends and family!

    Loved our stay here. More than comfortable and perfectly located to walk into town. There had been complaints about the kitchen not being well equipped. That has been remedied and the kitchen is perfect. Cooked dinner for friends and it was like being in my own kitchen. Beautiful artwork on the walls. Quite an upgrade from many VRBOs we have rented. I could live here very easily and happily.

    We loved our stay here . Plenty of room for us to have our 3 grandkids over to play and have dinner with the whole family. Beautiful views of the sound. Short walk to the village of Eastsound. Was clean and comfortable. Would totally stay again. Would recommend extra outside trash bins and recycling bin. We ran out of room to put trash and recycling in.

    Sarah E from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, the stay was enjoyable - the location is perfect and the interior amenities are great. Beds were cozy. But as some have suggested, for $300/night some things definitely need to be upgraded. Cleaner and better cookware and baking sheets, more regular size glasses. And the windows definitely need to be cleaned on the outside. The draw of this place is the windows and some were so dirty, you couldn't enjoy the view. Or couldn't open the windows as some wouldn't stay up or lacked screens. It needs a good pressure washing everywhere!

    This is truly a wonderful house positioned right in the village of Eastsound. We loved the great views of the bay, wraparound patio and large windows in every direction. We will stay here again. We did find a few small items that that would further enhance the experience at Blue Otter. More complete equipping of the kitchen (Wine glasses, measuring cups, etc, and more thorough cleaning of the ceiling light lenses. Only other feedback is to leave the heating a little higher in the winter. Due to the radiant heating it took 6 hours to get the house to a comfortable 68 degrees. Thank you for the nice basket of goodies. It was a nice touch

    • Manager Responded on 2/13/2018

      Dear Guest - thank you so much for coming to stay with us in the Islands and for this review. We are so glad you enjoyed the Penthouse and appreciate your feedback - it has been communicated to our local Island Manager as well as the Owners so we can get some additional supplies in the unit. We do hope you return to the Islands soon and give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations! Best Regards, General Manager

    • Manager Responded on 2/13/2018

      Dear Guest - Blue Otter is indeed a special property and one we are so lucky to be able to represent. Its location at the edge of town is unbeatable with all the restaurants and shops in easy walking distance, yet still far enough that right across from it is one of the most beautiful parks right on the water. The finishes inside, the art work, and the beautiful furniture also lend a warmth to it that is amazing. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return! Best, General Manager

    Blue Otter was a beautiful and very clean place. It was roomy and inviting. There was a great view of the water and Indian Island. The deck was a great place for watching the world go by. We loved it! The only downside was that it was loud in the front bedroom because it was on Main St. Also, it took some getting used to for figuring out how to lock the doors. Overall it was a great place.

    James R from Bellevue, WA recommends this vacation rental

    The cell phone app was recommended, but it was actually required. Without it I wouldn't even have know how to get into the unit (a key lockbox similar to what realtors use). Also, there was no mention of a manual for the unit, and I only found it stuffed in a cupboard near the end of our stay. The description of how to use the door's nonstandard deadbolt mechanism was unclear and could have been much simpler. In fact, I'd say it was misleading and I would've figured it out sooner had it not been there. Also, the garbage cans were secured with no way to unlock them, yet the manual says we were required to dispose of our garbage and recycling before leaving. I left it on the floor inside the entryway, worried that I was going to be charged for it. Similarly, there was an outdoor storage closet with the door wide open, and it was hard to tell if it had been broken into, and I was also worried that whatever may have been in there might get charged to me. One window would not open properly. Not having seen the manual, I was unsure of the HVAC operations (fortunately, the weather did not require any--opening the windows/doors sufficed). The patio tables were very dirty and we had to clean them a lot before eating outside. All that negative feedback aside, it was a nice unit and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    • Manager Responded on 7/26/2017

      Dear James, We always welcome guest responses and take constructive comments/recommendations to heart. We thank you for the positive things you said. To the negatives, this spring we introduced a helpful cell phone app for delivering directions, entry codes and many helpful tips about the guest's visit. Since introduction, we have added as a safeguard, email instructions to eliminate your concern about not using the app. Each guest now receives two methods for obtaining this information. We have addressed all of your other negative items mentioned, and do apologize for any inconvenience these might have caused during your visit. Blue Otter is one of our more popular rentals on Orcas Island and our guests seem very pleased with this luxury rooftop condominium. It truly provides a wonderful location in charming Eastsound Village. Best Regards, General Manager

    Bonnie B from Seattle, Washington recommends this vacation rental

    We really had a lovely time at Blue Otter. Location is terrific with two exceptions. This place is right on the flight path for the airport and it is right by a very noisy intersection. It does have a slight noise problem especially when you want to sit on the lovely deck. The space is excellent and has a terrific layout. Bedrooms and bathrooms are outstanding. Also, there are a few things that would be nice to have: ice cube trays, grill tongs and cleaners, a whisk, more plates, kitchen tongs, serving spoons-plates-bowls, pot holders, a blender, and a second key.

    • Manager Responded on 7/24/2017

      Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting the Islands and for choosing to stay with us. We understand your feedback and take your comments to heart. As noted in other review responses the location of the property is in town so some noise should be expected with passing traffic, etc. We also understand your feedback with respect to the equipment of the unit and this has been addressed. We hope you will return to the Islands and choose to stay with us again! Best Regards, General Manager

    This is a very clean, modern condo in a great location in Eastsound. The layout is great and separate for two couples. The deck and grill are a nice feature. We were a little disappointed in the kitchen appointments. We thought that there would be some basic spices, oil, etc., but there was hardly anything. We left several items for future guests. Outside of this minor issue, it's a great place to stay and we would return.
