The place gives a perfect water view. It was super relaxing to sit outside and just enjoy the view. The house is close to town, but far enough away that we felt secluded. The neighbors, however, were loud and it didn’t take much for their sound to travel. Especially at night. The house itself was in good condition except that there weren’t any extra towels. Luckily, we brought our own. It was also hot and there was little to no airflow. Extra fans would be a good investment for the summer time.

My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary with a trip to the San Juan Islands and Olympic National Park. We stayed a week at Island Myth and pictures cannot capture the magnificence of the stunning view. The decor was lovely--special touches throughout, huge windows, beamed ceilings, comfy bed and furnishings. A well-equipped kitchen enabled us to have several dinners in with the best view on the island! We loved the close proximity to Moran State Park and the amazing views from the top of Mt. Constitution, hiking the trail around Mountain Lake, hiking Turtleback Preserve, and driving around the whole island. A great base to visit the other islands. Tip: Bring as much as you can of non-perishable items (we shopped at Super Walmart in Mt. Vernon) with you as groceries are very expensive on the island. We are vacation-rental owners ourselves and we were impressed with the cleanliness and care of this home.

The photos barely do justice to this lovely vacation rental. We had all the amenities that we wanted, an incredible view, and a location that was very convenient to everything we wanted to do. The only bummer was that we had to leave. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful clean house with amazing views in a good location. However, there were some issues. One of the main reasons we selected this house was because of the outdoor options. The photos show multiple seating areas on the amazing deck and in the yard. There was not a single chair outside for us to sit and enjoy the views. We had to either stand up or sit on the steps when we were outside. Not ideal. I called and was told the chairs were in the locked garage. Sorry! This was a huge disappointment. Next, the thermostat was set to 55 and the house was freezing when we arrived. It took forever for the house to warm up. They knew we were coming but it was not a 'warm welcome'. Also, the instructions were conflicting from getting into the house to the wifi password. One set of documents had different information than the other. After some time we figured it out but it was frustrating after a long day of travel. I don't like to complain but, all of our issues could have been easily remedied and without cost involved. It didn't seem like they were prepared for guests. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house. Perhaps you need to call ahead and let them know if you'd like to sit on the deck though.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your stay with NW Island Escapes. It is unfortunate that your arrival to this home was not what you had hoped for. The outdoor furniture for this home was placed inside the garage due to a storm that included heavy rains and a high wind warning. When you called with the request for the furniture to be placed outside, this was explained to you. it was also explained that the furniture would be placed out as soon as the winds subsided.

We loved the beautiful home base to explore Orcas. It was great to go on hikes or Eastsound. On a particularly rainy day it was great to see out the giant windows while our kids played in this very comfortable and clean cabin. The beds were great and our kids loved the loft!

Manager's Response

Thank you for this wonderful review of Island Myth. It is such a charming home in a beautiful location and we are so glad your family enjoyed the stay! We look forward to welcoming you again to one of our beautiful vacation rental homes in the San Juan Islands.

My wife and I stayed nine nights here. We've stayed at many properties in the islands over the years, and this was the quietest of all. Perfect for two adults and a small child or two. Nice view of the Sound.

We stayed for a week for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful house for the occasion. The deck and huge windows in the living room were the best parts; we had many meals enjoying the incredible views from the property. We did see a few too many spiders in the house for our comfort, but being in such a wooded area this is probably not uncommon. This was a great place to stay on Orcas and I would definitely recommend the home and booking with this company.

This was a perfect vacation property for our family of 4 with 2 small children (ages 6 and 8). The location was really convenient - close to the park, Rosarios and a short drive into town. The house itself is freshly updated, impeccably clean and beautifully furnished. The views are incredible so even when we werent out exploring the island we still got to enjoy the beauty of the island! I highly recommend this property for smaller families (my kids loved having their own little bunk room) or groups. The pictures really didnt do it justice.

This home was hands down exactly what we were looking for! We celebrated our 16th anniversary and this home provided the kind of healing quiet relaxation we were needing. Every morning we woke to a beautiful view from the large open windows in the main space of the home. We sat on the wooden chairs overlooking the bay and saw a whale spout. We made many meals in the kitchen and enjoyed the BBQ and deck space, sun lounging in the reclining chairs. The master bed was very comfortable. The home was clean and the location is perfect. Right next to all the best parts of Orcas Island: Moran State Park, Rosario Resort, where we enjoyed an amazing dinner and booked a massage at their spa. This was a beautiful weekend in a beautiful home.
