This place was awesome, Pictures don't do it justice. Perfect for families, laid-back easygoing, great views. Huge fire-pit. Lots of amenities, pool, tennis courts, basketball court. Great whale watching leaves from the marina right out front. Lot's of repeat guests that make you feel like family. Lot's of kids, may not be a honeymoon spot but if you have kids,... More

My family of 4 stayed here over the 4th of July holiday weekend. Also included was extended family; my mother (who had her own villa) and my adult daughter & family (they too, had their own villa). All the villa's were great. I don't think I could say one was better then the other; they are all different. It was... More

Had a blast for the second year in a row at smugglers! Orcas Island is a beautiful place to vacation and smugglers is a great option for families, like us, who need things like a washer & dryer, full kitchen and plenty of space for the kiddo to run and play! We plan on staying here again and would recommend... More

I highly recommend staying at Smugglers Villa. We've spent a lot of time in the San Juan's and this is clearly one of the best family oriented resorts. We found it by accident in 1999 and have been going up every year since. I thought it was great with our young kids, given all the activities and set up, but... More

My son & I stayed there, recently, & really enjoyed the sunsets. You have a great view of Canada & the incoming/outgoing flights of the small airstrip adjacent to the property. Whale watching boats left from the docks in front of the property. Very comfortable rooms with full kitchen! No maid service, but it has a washer & dryer---I'd definitely... More

Booked this place last minute after cancelling Chelan trip due to fires! Great family spot clean and comfortable! Not exactly a resort as no maid service and no restaurants or food services, but bbq and deck and front lawns made it nice for walks and game! No nightly bonfires due to burn ban and it was too cold and rainy... More

We stayed at Smuggler's Villa Resort over Labor Day weekend for 4 nights. After reading the reviews, I was a little apprehensive, but we got a great deal and I knew it was in a good location. Hopefully you know going in that this isn't a luxury resort, but it is a great value for the price. We stayed in... More

We spent 3 nights at Smuggler's and will be coming back as often as we can. We stayed in one of the townhouses. The buildings are a bit dated, but that just added to the beach house vibe. It reminded us of places we used to stay in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Also it's homey enough we didn't... More

Stayed last week. Pool was NOT heated only saw kids brave enough to tolerate the very cool water. The inside hot tub was dirty. No way would we go on. The playground area has landscaping bark!!! Actually hurt the kids when they fell into the splintery mess. Please get playground rated filling. Only way to stop the irritation was to... More
