Eastsound House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Aurora House is a wonderful northwest style solid cedar home with soaring ceiling and a wall of windows. End of a country road privacy guarantees a quiet, relaxing vacation. A huge deck with a gas BBQ and 8 person hot tub look out over the ocean. The deck is also a great spot to view deer, otter, sea lions and eagles. One lot away you will find a serene park with a trail and steps leading to a peaceful cove beach.

Both the downstairs bedroom and the loft master bedroom have queen beds and a stunning water view. The third bedroom features a bunk bed with double and single beds. We offer free wi-fi for your laptop and plenty of movies and books. We also provide a playpen, toys and videos for the youngsters. Pets are considered with an additional deposit.

We are 4.5 miles from Eastsound and 8.3 miles from Moran State Park with its many trails, lakes and Mount Constitution. Mountain Lake and Cascade Lake offer fishermen the opportunity for catching rainbow and cutthroat trout, kokane and bass. You can also book an ocean charter for silver salmon fishing. Favorite activities are kayaking, biking, hiking and golf. Be sure to take a whale watching trip or board the inter-island ferry to the scenic and historic town of Friday Harbor or one of the other nearby islands. Another ferry can take you to Vancouver Island where you can catch a bus to the charming city of Victoria.

Bike and kayak rentals are available in the village or at the ferry landing. Well marked and scenic island hikes range from easy loop trails to all day strenuous mountain climbs. The village offers shopping, movies, a playhouse, and many fine restaurants.

Vacation on Orcas Island

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful inside and out from the largfe windows in the living area overlooking the sound to the deer and alpaca viewed on the road into town. We cooked all breakfasts at the house, packed sandwiches and snacks for our daily hikes in the Park or day trip to San Juan, returned for a drink in the hot tub to sooth aching muscles, then prepared dinner and ate on the deck watching the boats coming in. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms clean (the shower had excellent pressure). I liked the varied music cd's that were provided and the children enjoyed the movies. My favorite experience was the first morning when I awoke at sunrise, made coffee and sipped it in the hottub as the birds and animals were awakening and one lone sailboat was in view on the Sound.. It was very peaceful.

Great Puget Sound Property - Stunning Views, Great Accomodation, Great Locaiton.

  • 5 of 5
My Wife, her folks and our 4-month old baby stayed at the Aurora in Early august and had an amazing week there. This is a great VRBO property. First, the views form the deck are amazing since you look out directly onto the Puget sound. We saw a terrific sunrise one morning where the sky and water turned a fiery orange. Even though, the house looks east, the sunsets were also awesome, as the sky, water, and mountains would also turn into fantastic colors, and many nights Mt. Baker would light up pink. The view from the living room is also equally impressive and my wife’s parents spent a considerable amount of time just reading books and gazing out into the sound looking at the sail boats, barges, sea lions and otters, eagles and other amazing creatures that can be seen from the house.

The house itself is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals and it was filled with a lot of basics when we arrived, oil, vinegar, coffee, filters, paper towels, spices, ect, so you did not have to waste a lot of money on basics. The BBQ was also great, we cooked many dinners on the gas grill. The living room had plenty of comfortable furniture and the 3 bed rooms were spacious with clean bedding and crib sheets. There is also a great selection of music, we really enjoyed the jazz, classical and latin American CDs.

The location of the house is in a remote area, there is much privacy and it is about a 10 minute drive to east sound. Also, great was the nearby beach which was less than a 5 minute walk. I went there every morning to check out the tide pools, which were some of the best I have ever seen, as I saw many starfish, sea otters (even one walking on the beach), raccoons, eagles, an octopus, jelly fish and other stranded marine life.

Also, the owner is great. She was in constant contact with us if we needed anything and I forgot a camera remote and she graciously sent it back to me.

Last, the best part of Orcas Island is the Moran state Park – about a 20 minute drive. The hikes, lakes and views are all amazing there.

Longing to Return

  • 5 of 5
I rented this wonderful home with my boyfriend for a 4-night Memorial Day weekend. The house had a perfect balance of modern amenities while also having the cabin feel we love (gorgeous cedar walls). We felt nicely tucked away from civilization while still having easy access to everything on the island. The neighbors never felt intrusive and we were more likely to see a passing deer than a passing car on the road to and from the house. The view perched up on the hillside never got old whether watching it from the hot tub, deck, living room or master bedroom. More than once we were drawn down the short path to the neighborhood beach a block away since it was as rarely used making it almost a private beach for us. We fully intended to leave the house more but found ourselves wanting to stay in and enjoy the place – BBQing, enjoying a glass of wine on the deck, etc. I can see where the layout (loft master bedroom without door) might not work for everyone but for the two of us there was no issue. Finally, Anita generously allowed us to bring our pups with us for the stay. We are very respectful dog owners but recognize this is quite a leap of faith for property owners. We were even made aware of gates we could put up to confine dogs on part of deck – perfect for the dog who is happiest when she can keep a visual on us when we were out in the hot tub. We couldn’t help but find ourselves contemplating a return trip.

Nice House; poor use of space

  • 4 of 5
Since we rely upon reviews in making our choices, we thought we should contribute one. This house is close to the descriptions on the site and that of other guests. Our grandson enjoyed the toys, games and video. The house was clean. The owners were easy to deal with, but pay pal or credit cards would have been an easier way to make payment.
There is a water view, but trees would need to be cut for a Mt. Baker view (which is implied by the photo). It was a bit further from Eastsound and the rest of the island that we would have wished.
The biggest problem is the floor plan. The loft bedroom is the master and is large(also not obvious from the photos). The children's and guest bedrooms are down stairs and are very small. If you want a big bedroom, you have to climb the stairs to use it. It is completely open to the rest of the house due to the A frame design. The only private spaces are the two smallest bedrooms which have doors. The rest of the house is completely open and you can hear all sound from all rooms. They ask that you not move furniture so we basically were restricted to the use of the DR table for a desk and the small sitting room (with no view) for video/tv which you could hear from everywhere.
I suppose this would all work for some families, but it didn't work for us for the reasons stated. VRBO should provide basic floor plans and any restrictions the owners are applying to use.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing a review. Ours is a Lindal prow home with an open floor plan that takes full advantage of the big ocean views and we think our photos reflect this. We try to be as accurate as we can in our description and so we would like to clarify the points our guests brought up. The home is 4.5 miles from town and at the end of the road. The loft is open, with a desk area in front and bedroom behind. Although you can not see into the bedroom from downstairs, you can hear noise. It is such a drop dead view that we don't have the heart to close it off. Mt. Baker can not be seen from inside the house and we have no plans to cut trees down. The Mt. Baker photo was taken from the yard where we drive in. We regret that our description was not as clear as it could be. Hope this helps our future guests!

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, comfortable, spacious home in an ideal location. If you are looking for seclusion, tranquility, and beauty, this is the place. This home looks out over the water, and offers an ever-changing visual feast with beautiful sunrises every morning. The home is clean, well maintained, very spacious, comfortably furnished with modern features, and many nice touches. It is architecturally enchanting with wood features, vaulted ceilings, and lots of big windows facing the water. The deck, BBQ, and especially the spa are very special features. The close-by park, and sea overlook is serene and enchanting. Orcas Island has many activities to offer and locations to visit. Eastsound is only minutes away by car where you find grocery stores, restaurants, and other shops. Anita and Conrad were very easy to work with, and were very responsive by email and over the phone. We had a great time in these accommodations, and only wish we could have stayed longer.

Restful Week on the island

  • 5 of 5
My parents met my husband and I for the week of 8/22-29. Our daughter flew into the little Eastsound airport mid-week. The house was beautiful. All we wanted to do was sit and look at the view. It was AMAZING!!! We saw all kinds of wildlife including 3 whales. The kitchen had just about everything I needed to cook all our meals. The hot tub was great. The rocky beach was a short steep downhill walk away. It was too beautiful! It was convenient to the state park and Eastsound. There were movies, music, games and books if you could tear your eyes away from the view. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The rest of our family is now begging us to reserve it for next year.
