2 families vacationing together with nearby units. We all loved the location, views, pool, rocky beach, play structure, and general layout of the units. Great for little kids, and just what was advertised -- well-used, not deluxe, great views. Unfortunately, both units were filthy -- food bits on the floor, tables and chairs; cobwebs, dirt and grime everywhere; gummy food... More

Beautiful views of the San Juan Islands land and sea scapes, close to shops and activities, all combine to make this a charming spot from which to explore Orcas Island. The units are reasonably well equipped, especially for those of us who prefer to do some of our own cooking. I think this small resort is especially well suited to... More

Thank you Mike , it is a great place ...the villa is fantastic. Great place to take pictures from wild life to water and great sunsets. It is side by side with Outer Island Expeditions and a great way to see whales. Check them out.

location on island is great, on the water, rooms are comfortable and clean. Place for kids to play on grass, pool, hot tub, and views that are wonderful. At the fire pit you can see Mt. Baker to the right, other islands all the way to the ski area above Vancouver B.C. way off in the distance at night. You... More

Had a great stay at Smuggler's! Mike was very helpful upon check in and very knowledgeable about the island. Perfect location to explore the island. We loved the beach and the fire pit at sunset. Amazing sunsets!! We would definitely stay here again!!

Before I begin, a disclaimer. I get that this place is probably a better fit for summer time, high-traffic families with kids running in and out. From the beginning. We were asked to stay here by a Bride for her wedding so as to relive parking pressure at the event elsewhere on the island. Normally when visiting Orcas we will... More

On short notice, for a short stay, we were merely making arrangements to accomodate a Whale Watching commitment (the boat is moored next to the Villas). The owners were so helpful and hospitable. The villa was sparkly clean and welcoming, well equipped, and the inlet was sparkly and welcoming in the morning!! We realized too late that we should have... More

This was a great family place. Small playground with a slide and swings. A couple of sandboxes with toys. Large grass area to run around in - and several other kids for ours to make friends with. The nightly fire pit and smores (bring your own!) was fun and helped the various vacationers get to know each other. Yes, there... More

This place is great for families and in great proximity for all that Orcas Island has to offer. We had a great time during our recent stay. We rented 2 units since we were a large family vacationing together. The townhouse has a half bath/laundry room that the single story units don't have. The single story still have washer/dryer but...
