HOW TO RESERVE A HOUSE...
Enclosed you will find a list picturing and describing our Orcas vacation homes. To keep our rental prices lower, the homes are on a housekeeping basis – meaning you are responsible for leaving the house and property in the same clean manner as you found it. This includes doing your own sweeping, mopping, dusting, bathroom tub, shower and toilet cleaning, mirrors, vacuuming, doing dishes and putting them away, and laundry. If you do not wish to perform these housekeeping duties, there are maid service fees for our crews to clean and do laundry. To determine the cost for cleaning and laundry at the house of your choice, see the asterisks next to the house description. * = $50/$35 * * = $75/$40 * * * = $125/$50 * * * * = $150/$75
Out of courtesy to those who do not appreciate animals and fleas and have allergies, we do not allow pets on the rental premises.
This also applies to pets of Daily Visitors. Our Eastsound Kennel will be happy to accommodate your “family friend” during your stay.
Family Groups Welcome:
All of our vacation homes are privately owned and may be located in neighborhood settings. Our policy states that Cherie L. Lindholm Real Estate will not rent to high school students, college/fraternity/sorority groups and unchaperoned youth groups. Our rentals may not be used as party houses, for weddings, receptions, group dinners, or activities with tents, campers or RVs in yards. If your visit to Orcas requires anything similar to the above, we’d be happy to guide you to venues better suited.
Any reservation that has been made under false pretense will not be allowed access to the rental property and there will be no refunds of any monies paid.
Please read our Policies and Procedures on our website at www.orcashomes.com.
The season for vacation rentals is from mid-June to September; however, a limited number of rentals are available year-round.
Please call for availability
When house calendars online become active, you may place reservations. Sign up for email notifications.
All homes may be reserved by March 1st.
When you decide on a house:
1. Call us, or visit the office in person, to see if the house you want is available for your dates. If the house you desire is available, we will reserve it verbally. If it’s not, we will work to get you an alternate house.
2. We will only hold the house with the verbal reservation for seven days. During those seven days, you must complete a
“Guest Reservation Application and Agreement” and send us the deposit required. (See below.) If your letter is not postmarked within seven days, we have no obligation to hold the house for you.
Your request to rent a house should include:
a) A completed “Guest Reservation Application and Rental Agreement.” Find the agreement here.
b) Include a check, cashier’s check, or money order for $200.00 security deposit and 1/2 the rent amount. (Security deposits will be returned within 14 days of departure if there in no theft or damage and all housekeeping duties have been performed.) One check combining the security deposit and rent deposit is fine, made payable to: Cherie L. Lindholm Real Estate.
The balance is due fourteen (14) days prior to arrival. Receipts acknowledging your final balance paid will not be mailed, but are provided in your check-in envelope. Payments for the initial deposit or final balance may be made in cash, check, money order, or traveler’s checks. We do not accept credit cards.
Our receipt of your deposit and completed “Guest Reservation Application and Rental Agreement” subsequently signed by us, guarantees that space is reserved for you. In return, you are financially responsible for the entire reservation. Please read the cancellation clause on the enclosed contract.
When we receive your deposit and completed “Guest Reservation Application and Rental Agreement,”
you will promptly receive a written reply which will include a copy of the “Rental Agreement” signed by us.
Accompanying the Agreement will be a cover letter which will include important phone numbers, ferry
schedules, car rental and air flight information, plus island services and activities information.
