About

WONDERFUL WATERFRONT GUEST HOME AT DEER HARBOR ON ORCAS ISLAND. HOT TUB & PET FRIENDLY!

With spectacular views of Deer Harbor and the Olympic Mountains to the south, this Orcas Island cottage is just steps from the water and offers easy access for beach combing. The gentle surrounding waters are perfect for kayaking, and there is a dock available to launch kayaks and canoes at high tide - or just carry them down the path and set off from your private beach.

Marina View is a spacious one-bedroom guest house, with queen bed, a fully equipped kitchen and large living area with vaulted ceiling. Both the living area and dining nook offer south and west views of the water.

Three and a half acres offers ample room for play and there is a large level lawn that is conducive to croquet or badminton. The guest cottage shares the family's vacation compound, but landscaping provides privacy for both parties if the owner should also be in residence.

Marina View is within walking distance of Deer Harbor Marina, a convenience market and post office. It's a great location, within 20 minutes of the ferry landing and the amenities of Eastsound. It is also a wonderful vantage point for Deer Harbor fireworks if you are the lucky ones to book this cottage over the 4th of July!

Dog friendly, too! Please note that if you are bring a pet the damage waiver is not applicable. The full security deposit is required. Please note that this home is pet friendly but certain breeds are excluded. Please inquire before booking.

The house was super cute. The hot was great to have just relax and take in the beautiful scenery. We had everything we needed. It was so great that we got to bring our fur kids to enjoy the trip with us. We will defiantly be returning.

It was a lovely secluded property on the water. We enjoyed the hot tub very much, especially after a day of fabulous orca whale watching cruise out of Deer Harbor. The bed was very comfortable, the heaters worked well. Deer Harbor is very tiny - only two dinner restaurants but luckily they were both great!

Fantastic cottage, the perfect size for a couple and a dog. Everything you would need was provided. The cottage was clean and in very good shape. The couches are comfortable and the outdoor seating is well planned. Our only complaint would be the lackluster pillows on the bed. We will definitely book this for future trips to Orcas Island.

My husband and I visited Marina View to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. Typically, he and I bring along some upgraded necessities to ensure we have everything (binoculars, small speaker, and an outdoor cord for our dog). We did not need literally anything we brought as the house already had it! (Which is not commonly provided) Needless to say, this place was pretty darn close to perfect. We will definitely be returning in years to come.

My husband and I spent a long weekend at Marina View and loved every minute. Quiet part of Deer Harbor had us enjoying dining outside and watching seal pups play. Low bank waterfront with room for kayak storage on the grass or directly on the beach clear of high tide. Overall stars would be 5 but dogs can't stay alone in home so not really pet friendly for those who like to go kayaking, go on longer day hiking/biking excursions or eating out, etc. Absolutely wonderful place/location!

Best equipped kitchen ever!
Pruning the trees to improve the view of the marina and the lagoon would be a big plus!

We came up to the Cottage to celebrate our 19th anniversary. The house is Dog friendly so wwe got to bring our four legged-child with us. There's a HUGE Soren grass field where he got to play on after going down to the beach for a swim. We enjoyed the hot tub after going out for an great dinner. House has everything you need including big comfy couches perfect for that afternooon nap after playing in the sun. It was such a fabulous place we decided to just enjoy it instead of revisiting the islands attractions.

Cottage was well appointed with a spacious "great room" and plenty of kitchen supplies for basic cooking needs. Appreciated the dog stake so the little buddy could hang out with us while we used the hot tub or lounged outside. Plenty of lawn for yard games but it was unclear if we could use the bikes stored by the cottage. On arriving, we missed the weather-worn driveway sign and ended up at the neighbors just beyond. She wasn't too pleased to see us so keep a sharp eye out for the proper sign. Bathtub could use a facelift. Otherwise we and the dog enjoyed our escape from the big city.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your Island excursion! We appreciate the review you have left and the feedback you have provided. In fact the sign has been fixed and things spruced up generally. We hope you will pick us to stay with on your next Island getaway! Best Regards, General Manager

The on-line descrption of this property is misleading, at best. First, we were very disappointed that it was not spelled out that this property is actually a guest house located a mere 20 yards from the owner's residence. While the owners were not overly intrusive we did feel abit like being in a fish bowl. Second, no reference or mention of the availability of kayaks was ever made even though there were two kayaks located on the owner's dock. Third, despite the descrption stating how much Fido will enjoy the wide open lawn, the information booklet located in the unit requires that dogs be on a leash when outdoors. Overall we were very disappointed with this rental unit and would not recommend it to a friend.

We really enjoyed everything about the property! The location was perfect, the living room was huge, the fireplace added to the romance, and the grill was perfect for ending the day with a good meal. One of the things that I found exceptional was that the kitchen was well stocked with the basics that everyone needs but are rarely present in a vacation cottage. There was olive oil, vinegar, flour, a full range of spices, ziplock bags, etc. I highly recommend this place!

The cottage is located on a beautiful, serene section of the river that leads into Deer Harbor, the views are amazing, there is plenty of outdoor seating areas to enjoy the views, there is even beach access to launch a kayak or enjoy a small fire. The kitchen pantry is stocked w/ spices and olive oil for cooking. The living room is comfortable (great couch and fire place for reading a book) as is the bed. The place was not spotless but is clean w/ plenty of extra pillows and blankets. It would have been great if they had a docking station stereo for an iPod/iPhone to enjoy music. There is a DVD player (not many channgls available on TV) and the BBQ is gas which is not listed on the rental amenities. Oracs Island is charming, there are limited places to dine which was fine since we enjoyed cooking and eating while enjoying the views. I would definitely go back.

We spent 3 nights on Orcas Island. We used VRBO's many times because we have more space, can make meals, more privacy and quieter than a hotel or B&B. #201 was like being in a Sunset Magazine article. We enjoyed looking at the Marina and walked to it for Classic Day Sailing. The wireless coverage was the best of any VRBO we've ever stayed in and having in and out calls and an answering machine was a huge benefit because we had no cell phone coverage and cell coverage on the island is poor. Great having a truly full kitchen because limited restaurants outside of East Sound. Deer Harbor Inn amazing dinners though and you can walk. Only negatives that can be fixed: more than 3 wine glasses. My cousin and her husband joined us one evening and we only had 3, having to use a water glass as we enjoyed the evening view outside. And the hot tub needs servicing. It was overfilled and murky- we still used it though on our last night I would have called the management company if it would have been our first. :) We have one at home and the water should be clear and not overflow when you get in, which is easily corrected. Loved seeing the bunnies and deer running around at night. I still would highly recommend a visit!

Our only concern with the rental was that we would be held responsible for the "minor damage" already evident at the vacation home when we arrived. We called the property management company about a couple of items and they were very polite and professional. We left the home in good condition, as required in the rental agreement and in the end was reimbursed our full deposit in less than ten days. The rental provides a quiet and private retreat and is a good location for kayaking and hiking.

We will be back--Deer Harbor was a great location, our cottage was adorable and comfortable and Vacation Doorways couldn't have been more helpful.

The view alone is worth it!

Location: Awesome. Beautiful view from windowns. Also great animal watching (river otter, bald eagles, rabbits, etc.)

We had dinner one night at West Sound Cafe, which is only about a 10 minute drive and the food was delicious.

Eastsound only 15-20 minutes away. Ferry also about 15 minutes away. If you want to spend more time at Moran State Park, then staying on the other side of the island might be better. We only went one day, so the distance was fine for us.

House: spacious living room and generally child proof... so it was great to let our infant son crawl around without much worry. Decor is a little dated, but it's not a big deal. The sliding glass door is really difficult to open... you have to really put your whole body into it. The hot tub was great both during the day and night... very relaxing. There are no curtains in the living room, so if someone is going to sleep on the sleeper sofa there, they need to be someone that is an early riser.

Overall, I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Overall we were very happy. It was fun to watch the heron fishing at low tide and the occasional otter when the tide was in. Other than a few problems with the washing machine which would switch off in the middle of the wash cycle and the hot tub being lukewarm by the end of or stay, everything worked well and we really enjoyed our stay.

Manager's Response

You'll be happy to hear that the owners have recently upgraded Marina View - inlcuding living room furnishings plus the washer, dryer, and the hot tub! Come back and enjoy them!

Our seven days at Marina View #201 on Orcas Island reminded us of our very first home together--forty years ago--on a lovely estate in a small New England town. In other words, it was idyllic: great views day and night, clean and comfortable, quiet and
peaceful, romantic and relaxed, fun walks and vigorous hikes, delicious food and a wonderful yoga studio in nearby Eastsound. A fair price for a touch of the divine, and with Internet access too!

The view of picturesque Deer Harbor from the kitchen and the "great room" made cooking in so wonderful. I love to cook and was happy to find the kitchen well-equipped. A beautiful remote location to just relax, but not too far from exploring other areas of the island or taking the ferry to another island (although why would you want to...) To save ourselves "sticker shock," we stocked up on fish at Pike's Market in Seattle and other grocery items in Anacortes before catching the ferry to Orcas. Also, not sure if the property description indicates this, but there is a washer and dryer. When traveling with our Lab, we find that is a necessity...All in all, a wonderful property to stay!

This is a really charming small home on the quiet side of the island. It is tastefully decorated and well-maintained. It has a pleasant view of part of Deer Harbor and a marina, and is really nicely equipped. For a couple, or a family with one child, it would be a very, very nice getaway. Remember, though, that most shopping/dining are in Eastsound, about a 15 minute drive away. But that is a plus if quiet is what you're looking for. The people who own this home have really tried to make guests comfortable; and not just with a nice kitchen and a hot tub. There's easy access to sailing and kayaking from this home as well; but if you'd rather just sit on the porch, admire the view and read, you couldn't find a better place.
