My husband and I handle all of our own properties and do business under the name of Vacation Holdings. We are a trusted member of the Vacation Rental Industry and a member of the Professional Vacation Rental Association. We have been in business for over 10 years and have the highest integrity. We are not a management company these are all of our own properties. This enables us to describe the home in great detail. I am an interior designer so all of our homes have been designer decorated. In addition all of our vacation homes are maintained by a caretaker so that the property is well cared for and our guests are given individual attention. I respond to inquiries within 10 minutes of submission or give us a call as we are super easy to reach. It is always our goal to exceeded your expectations!

Lisa Strauss - Headland House purchased this estate in 2007

One of the major benefits in renting from us is we have a legal vacation rental permit and proudly list our permit number on all of the listing sites. Guests can be reassured by renting from us that you will not have the worry of losing your lodging and your vacation spoiled by renting from an owner that is operating an illegal rental.

We have owned Timber Lodge another vacation rental home on Orcas Island for a number of years and found that everyone that visited Orcas Island had wonderful things to say about it and it has fast become our most popular vacation property in our portfolio. When we made the decision to purchase a second vacation home we had seriously considered buying a property on San Juan Island but Orcas Island felt more comfortable especially since we had our entire infrastructure already in place. We considered a waterfront home but the views were actually more spectacular from a distance than up close. The main factor was all that Headland House really needed was some interior design touches to make it a truly special home. The water views and eight acres of privacy makes Headland House is one of the best attributes along with having a totally separate guest house that has the same quality construction as the main house. The Guest house is a miniature version of the main house. The architect created the most gorgeous skylight in the kitchen that is actually more beautiful than the one in the main house. I would say the decking and patio areas attached to every bedroom is another super nice feature and best yet we are walking distance to our own private beach and have dock privileges. Oh..yes and everyone loves the projection TV in the great room!

Headland House sits at the end of a point which is why the home has spectacular views. One of the nicest features of the property is that the main house and guest house face in opposite directions and have parking at both locations so each home has really nice privacy.

Exceptional

  • Submitted: Dec 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Exceptional Place to get away from it all. Tastefully decorated with art & Comfortable Furnishings, the Comfort Level of the Beds was a 10+ Rain or Shine, the Property has so much to offer. Privacy, Panoramic Views, and too many Games & High Tech Tv's to even think of leaving the Property looking for activities. A Nice Hike to the Beach, and a Peaceful Setting. The Kitchen is stocked with so many items that we had to try a few of them out. Without a doubt, even the most pickiest of people would have a hard time trying to find a flaw in anything about the Home. The Pool Room, Guest House, Hot Tub, and all of the rooms are exceptional in every way. Even when it poured rain, our Grand Children had too much to keep them occupied with the Games, Hot Tub, Tv's, Dvd's and the list goes on. The adults enjoyed every moment as well. Without a doubt, we will be back there next Year, what a wonderful place to start a Family Tradition on Orcas Island. Highly recommend.

Most amazing Vacation Ever...

  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
If you want your vacation to be steeped in luxury, surrounded by breathtaking views, in a wonderfully comfortable and elegant private retreat, with every amenity you could ever dream of, all on a beautiful island with loads of outdoor activities to take part in, then Headland House is for you! We celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary in this beautiful house and knew from the website that Headland House would be nice, but our stay there exceeded our expectations! It was beautifully decorated; the space was perfect for our family reunion, which included children, young adults and mature adults; the setting was incredible--very private, but with the most stunning views of mountains, water and islands; the accommodations were extremely comfortable and luxurious; it was pristine, with top-of-the-line appliances and amenities; it was stocked with every imaginable spice and small appliance, and best of all, the owners were super welcoming, accommodating and kind! Our entire group loved our vacation at Headland House, and my parents felt celebrated, spoiled and very, very lucky! All in all, it was the perfect vacation!

The amazing Stay - Private, Luxurious and Easy

  • Submitted: May 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We simply adored Headland House. The home layout worked well for our family, 2 adults and two children ages 6 and 8 and our old golden retriever We all loved the views, private beach, hot tub, fireplace and large projector screen. The kids really liked exploring the woods around the house and playing pool. Adults loved the comfortable beds, the 'has everything' kitchen, and homey feel.

The home is off the beaten path which makes it special and the hosts really know how to make you feel at home. Movie night was complemented by popcorn and treats and we loved making donuts in the mornings. (The hosts provided us with some nice surprises!) Orcas Island is a charming place and the Deer Harbor location is breath taking. Madrone trees and water views are a unique west coast treat and Headland House has them in spades.

Great "feels like home" home with an amazing view!

Great "feels like home" home with an amazing view!
  • Submitted: May 2, 2013

Fantastic property...on eight acres. The home was meticulously clean with every detail thought through. From the arrival goodies that including cupcake mix with the milk and eggs waiting in the refrigerator to every pot and pan conceivable. Huge projector screen for the teenager and Dad to watch the Ncaa Basketball tournament as well as "movie" night. The only sound we heard each morning was the breeze passing through the trees and the birds chirping. The hot tub was hot and ready when we arrived, as well. When we couldn't keep the kids from confusing the admittingly a bit confusing receiver/TV/radio the owner even came over to fix it and walk us through the process. We didn't use the guest house, but I could see where two families could live and relax comfortably. Awesome stay for us!

What a beautiful house, and nice view!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 9, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
The Asian and African themed decor in this house....wow! We got a lot of decorating ideas for our own home. :) Nicely done. Spacious, clean, well-maintained home with a view to the mountains on the mainland east of the island as well as a peek-a-boo view of the Olympics. In addition, a view of Deer Harbor and a bit of a view of the waterway between islands, so we could see the ferry coming and going. We even got the thrill of watching a float plane take off from the harbor several times! The owners went above and beyond on what they provided for kitchen amenities/appliances. Good selection of cookbooks, spices, breadmaker (with some of the ingredients provided -- thank you), coffee/espresso/tea, all sorts of utensils and cooking vessels and appliances and gadgets. If you're a cook, you're going to love this kitchen with the large, beautiful countertops, big double sink, nice stove and double oven, etc. <-- with emphasis on the etc. You'll just have to see it. Really modern, large washer and dryer. Awesome master bedroom, bath, walk-in closet, and big French doors out onto the big deck with patio chairs and BBQ. Pool table and games in the basement. Roomy, warm hot tub we enjoyed by moonlight. There's even emergency equipment and lanterns in one of the cabinets. Coolers in the coat closet. The owners thought of everything. Music, tv, good speed Internet, hall bathroom, bridge approach to front door, nice drive in. Great place!
