We rented one room through Airbnb.com. Kari has a beautiful home within walking distance to sites, restaurants and the farmer's market. We enjoyed all of those things and made time to see the orcas with Deer Harbor Charters. Kari made us a delicious cake which we enjoyed on the ferry ride back to the mainland. We would definitely stay with Kari again!
Kari and Jim love living and working on Orcas Island. Everyday we are amazed we were lucky enough to have landed in such a fantastic, beautiful, and giving community.
