I found Orcas Island,WA. in 1990. I had never been to Washington State, let alone the San Juan Islands. I knew I had found home with in 15 minutes of driving off the ferry. This place feeds my artistic spirit and creative side.

I have worked toward my goal of buying property on Orcas Island and building my own place since then.

I started building in 2003. I was my own General Manager of this project. The professionals put in the parts that are controlled by building requirements to met code, like power, water, framing the house, etc.

After that is when the hands on part of the job was all mine. I put in all the slate flooring, wood trim, siding, painting, cupboards, sinks, tubs, slate shower hall, stone patio, etc. I could write a book with all that took place.

The house turned out lovely, if I do say so myself, and you can't beat the views.

I have not had one negative piece of feed-back about the house since I started renting it.

I want you to enjoy this piece of paradise as much as I do.

Thank you for your interest.

Donna Delong

Delongview

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

This Island offered the clean air and lush green landscape that has always been important to my comfort in a place. I need tall trees, natural settings, wild animals and birds as part of my daily life. The ocean being near-by and viewable daily, around nearly every corner I turn or hill I drive over, is a blessing I don't take for-granted. The views of the awesome mountains were a plus, and now I can't think of life without them to gaze at.

The fact that there are no traffic jambs or stop lights have to be listed as a plus too.

The peace and serenity you feel sitting on the patio with the sight of the Cascade Mountains and the Georgia Strait right there. Flowers blooming all around and birds to watch as their songs fill the air. The quiet of living on a 3 acre piece of paradise, on a private road, with no through traffic or city noises. Not another house in sight.

If the weather is overcast or if it has snowed and all is covered, it still feels bright in the Great Room, due to the huge ski-lite over the peak of the roof. The heated slate floors with rich, bold colors feel warm to my bare feet in the winter, and cool when I take feet out of my hot shoes in the summer.

So many things like this are what makes my home special to me, and to you too if you want.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AND SETTING

  • 4 of 5
This is a beautiful, clean house in a lovely, quiet setting. It is very tastefully decorated and filled with amenities, such as the fully-stocked kitchen. Wonderful patio. Good king-size bed. Only reasons for 4 stars (would have given 4-1/2) is that the temperature of the heated floors is regulated by the owner and was much too hot, especially for sleeping. We had to keep the French doors open. Also, we had problems with the VCR and stereo and the owner took two days to respond. Once she did, she came over and tried to correct the problems. All in all, recommended.

Owner's Response: I am always pleased when guests enjoy my house. I keep the in floor heat at 68 degrees and most visitors are happy with it. I provide a fan in each bedroom and one in the great room too.
The weather during this guests stay was quite warm for Orcas Island.
The very next guest that stayed in my house used a extra blanket on the bed. I keep a couple of extra blankets available for this.
I was off island and could not get to the house to help straiten out the use of the VCR/sound system. I was told it was not a big problem and these guests were able to use the TV/VCR in the master bedroom. I did discover that the CD player was not working correctly and I appreciate being told about it so I can repair or replace something not working correctly.
As always, I strive to make my home user friendly so your stay can be as peaceful and satisfying.
Namaste.

ISLAND PARADISE....

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was wonderful from the very beginning when I contacted the owner, Donna, to reserve a few nights for our stay here. She was so helpful telling me about the home, the island, and even sent us a schedule and told us how the Ferry worked (being from Texas, we were not familiar with this at all). We were traveling with two adult couples. We arrived at the house and found it even more beautiful than pictures. It is away from other homes, and the road does not have much traffic. The house is lovely and up to date. The kitchen had all the comforts of home, and we were told to feel free to use anything there.
The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. When sitting in the den, you felt like you were outside with the large windows, and huge skylight. So much natural light.
The back porch was a favorite place morning and night. This is not "on the water", but we knew that already. We couldn't see the large mountains across the water that show in the picture (maybe too foggy?) but loved the tall trees, the water, and quietness of the area. We enjoyed the fire pit, and grilled steaks one night. (The grill was having a hard time heating so had to finish it inside. We forgot to mention this to the owner so it's not her fault if she doesn't know.) The stars were like diamonds in the clear night sky.
On the island we did a little shopping, went to the State Park, and hiked a little. It was all wonderful and very relaxing.
I would highly recommend this home to anyone coming to the island that is looking to relax. Just wish we lived closer so I could spend weekends there.
Thank you so much Donna for all you did to make our trip so memorable.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME IN SPECTACULAR SETTING

  • 5 of 5
We joined another couple for a week at this lovely home, which they had rented from Donna. It was everything advertised, and more (though the pictures of the view are zooms--still, the view is great). The house comes with everything you need--beautiful bedroom accommodations, fully-stocked gourmet kitchen where we cooked fabulous salmon, an outdoor patio overlooking Rosario sound with barbecue and firepit (we made 'smores on two occasions). The locations is tranquil, and about 15 minutes from Eastsound. This is a special get-away home ideal for couples.

WONDERFUL HOUSE! GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Donna's house over the Memorial Weekend. The house was fully stocked with everything one would need. The radiant heating in the floors made the house nice and warm, which was especially nice on the cold stormy nights that sometimes occur on the islands. The patio was delightful, especially with the portable firepit and lounge chairs. The mountain views and privacy were everything we hoped for, and the house was less than 10 minutes away from town. All in all, a solid 5-star experience.

A BEAUTIFUL "LONG VIEW!"

A beautiful "long view!"
  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. All the amenities of home. Spices and condiments, pots and pans, appliances, utensils....everything one needs for cooking fun. Comfy, big bed with French doors that open up onto the view from the hand-laid stone patio. This homeowner did a bunch of the work on this beautiful place herself, and we're impressed! In-floor radiant heat kept the stone floors comfortable. Really pretty master bathroom. Two desks so no haggling with a partner over which one gets the desk. :) We hope to stay again sometime. Great CD collection to play on the stereo, too. Thank you for the hassle-free, fun place to stay.

HEAVEN ON EARTH !!!!

  • 5 of 5
"DeLong View" exceeded our expectations !!! The house & property were absolutely beautiful and we were beyond comfortable and felt so at home. The deck & view were priceless and we spent a lot of time out there. We had perfect weather so the view of Mount Baker was most always there for us. And the deer were a delight to watch. Donna, you did a tremendous job !!! And, it was great to have met you. When the grandchildren get older we would definately move to Orcas Island ..... unless we can get our son-in-law to transfer to Redmond sooner !!!! Thanks for making your beautiful home available for others to enjoy !!!
