About the property

Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Cozy furnished studio apartment with an amazing water view up the Georgia Straight and memorable sunsets. Kitchen, full bathroom, Queen size bed & TV. Deck, private entrance. Located in woods up steep, gravel road. Apartment is attached to our home.

A wonderful, rustic hideaway on a magical island.

Charming, studio apartment with large deck, breath-taking views of the shipping lanes and Canada. The views don't stop at night--we have star gazing galore on a clear nite. And you can see the lights of Vancouver from the deck.

About Owner / Property Manager Vicki Leimback

I love hiking, gardening, decorating with an extra passion for vintage lamps. Dan and I own the local bicycle shop on Orcas called Wildlife Cycles.

We love our home and it's a real pleasure to share this special spot with others. We have been so fortunate to host wonderful people here over the past year.

Owner / Property Manager Vicki Leimback purchased this studio in 2014

Why Owner / Property Manager Vicki Leimback chose Orcas Island

We looked for six years and fell in love with this home immediately!. It has big timbers, stained glass, tall ceilings and an amazing view! Was extra perfect since it had a fully functional apartment attached to the house. We are about 400' up the side of Buck Mountain. It's very private here. Love the birds, the deer and occasional raccoon.

The view never gets tiring.

What makes this studio unique

Sitting on the deck is so relaxing. And from the bed in the studio you can enjoy the water view. We are on a little over 9 acres. and although private, we are just 1 1/2 miles from town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were thrilled to host this couple on their very special day! They were wonderful to have here and we hope they return to celebrate in the future.

Home away from home, long or short stay is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Vicki and Dan are great hosts. Very quiet, private and beautiful setting with Vicki's artistic touches. We saw soaring eagles and a magnificent sunset right from the bed. Excellent cookware, condiments and lots of spices provided as well as everything you need to do laundry right in the unit. We highly recommend this unit.

very pretty view and comfy room

  • 3 of 5

if you want to be away from people this is the place to go. very quiet, peaceful. your less than 5 min. from town. the only reason I gave it a 3 star is because of the steep narrow gravel road you have to use to get there. no cell phone service

Owner's Response: Rick, this is somewhat disappointing as we do advise on the listing about the steep gravel road and that internet service is iffy. We are on a remote island and have no control over the cell service.

Perfect for Two

  • 5 of 5

This cute cottage-like rental was perfect for my husband and me. We spent most of our time there on the deck, enjoying the morning fresh air or the spectacularly beautiful sunsets. Whether we were drinking coffee, tea, or a spirited beverage, the adirondack chairs were the right fit. As most people have stated, Vicki was extremely pleasant in introducing us to the island, providing us with cinnamon bread, which I made into French Toast with the cream and eggs she gave us. We visited several of her favorite restaurants and were not disappointed. The only improvement that I would recommend is a firmer mattress, as my husband felt as though he was rolling into the center of the bed. Other than that, I would definitely recommend a stay at Robin Song Retreat.

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights in this lovely, secluded retreat. I appreciated that it had it's own private entrance and deck, washer and dryer, flower pots galore with blooming flowers and large windows with an incredible view. The furnishings and artistic decor create a comfy and calming ambiance that I wish I could repeat in my own home. Great hosts who were very responsive concerning any needs and obviously work hard to keep the place scrupulously clean. We had a wonderful stay and hope to be back!

Heaven on Orcas!

  • 5 of 5

The best kept secret on the island! Everything about our stay was amazing. The property is spectacular and Vicki does an incredible job taking care of your every need. I cannot imagine going back to Orcas Island and staying anywhere else. Thanks, Vicki, for sharing your little slice of Heaven. We're sorry we couldn't stay longer!
