Rosario House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

ORCAS ISLAND-

The Beautiful San Juan Islands

#2 of Travel Destinations Worldwide 2012

The New York Times

#3 of Best of North American Islands

Travel & Leisure 2013

Recently voted one of the world’s most exciting ferry rides your trip to the San Juan Islands promises beautiful views of mountains, forests and a close connection to the ocean. Glimpses of Orca Whales, Harbor Seals, Porpoises, and Sea Lions are not uncommon. Moderate temperatures make the islands ideal for all kinds of activities such as boating, fishing, kayaking and hiking. There’s no place more beautiful for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the deck of our beautiful home located in the VERY POPULAR Rosario area. Just 1.5 miles finds you at the entrance to Moran State Park with 5 lakes, hiking trails and Mt. Constitution. 2 miles in the other direction and you are at the beach front at Rosario Resort.

The open floor plan, skylights, and southern exposure make this very comfortable and modern home light and airy.

The large master suite boasts a jetted tub and private access to the west facing deck. Step out on the deck and enjoy your morning coffee. With a separate full bath and queen bed in the guest room, this home is perfect for two couples. But a sleeping sofa in the living room will provide for a larger group.

On your visit to our home on BEAUTIFUL ORCAS ISLAND you can enjoy Directv on our two new High Definition TV's. We also have a well stocked game closet and selection of DVDs as well as an I-Pod Dock for your listening pleasure. HIGH SPEED INTERNET with a WiFi router makes it possible for our guests to access the internet from the comfort of our home or even from the relaxing deck.

PET FRIENDLY!! Even your family pet will feel welcome! The deck leads to a fenced in area for your dog to have some off leash freedom. Rosario Heights is open to visits for one or two dogs.

With our home located on a quiet private road, this rural area and close proximity to the park often has visits from local deer.

Not a half mile is the trail that circles Cascade Lake. Rosario Heights is a wonderful place for a hiker to hang his hat. Walk out the door for the five mile circuit around Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Enjoy a swimming beach not 2 miles away.

Nearby several trail heads are marked. These silvan paths lead to the trail that circles Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Some of the parks trails are available to cyclists.

You can also hike or drive down the hill to Rosario Resort to find a waterfront beach near Cascade Marina, again not 2 miles from Rosario Heights.

TRUE RELAXATION!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, his mother, and I stayed a week at Rick's and Alexandra's home on Orcas Island. It is a comfortable, clean home with beautiful views of Eastsound. We were able to bring our 2 dogs who enjoyed looking out from the deck to stare at the deer that would walk by. The house is located about 10 minutes from Eastsound which has many stores, galleries, and restaurants. The kitchen was fully stocked (we cooked most of the nights we stayed there). If we had any questions Rick returned our calls promptly. If we ever return to Orcas Is. we would definitely like to stay here again.

WELL WORTH ALL THE 5 STARS

  • 5 of 5
All the 5 star reviews this home gets are well-deserved! I travel with my dog several times a year using VRBO vacation rentals and this is the best home I’ve ever stayed in. It is exceptionally well-designed, high up on a hill overlooking the ocean and mountains. Views are tremendous! The place was immaculate, with a well-stocked kitchen, rooms are all large and spacious, interior design was comfortably elegant. The owners obviously paid great attention to detail and quality of workmanship when they designed, built and furnished this house. It was a little chilly to use the large outside deck but I’m sure that would be my favorite place in summer. My dog Nikita loved her “outdoor” space in the fenced in yard down the stairs. The location is great – very private & peaceful yet minutes from Moran State Park (lots of hiking trails), Rosario Resort & Spa (nice restaurant overlooking the marina & you can get a day pass for their pool and fitness area), easy 10 minute drive to Eastsound. I will definitely come back to this lovely home! Made my stay on Orcas absolute perfection. One tip – buy gas and groceries (Safeway) in Anacortes before getting on the ferry – these things are super expensive on Orcas.

RELAXING & COMFORTABLE

I don't usually do reviews, but this place deserves one. Thought I'd surprise my wife with a "get away" for our 34th Anniversary- you know, something nice. Well Orcas Island is beautiful and very relaxing and the home was a great choice, even better than the pictures showed.
The location is great- just a couple of minutes from the water's edge at the Rosario Resort and a couple of minutes the other direction to the entrance to Moran State Park with the incredible views from Mt. Constitution.
The owners were very easy to deal with- friendly and very responsive to all our questions. The place is tastefully decorated, and equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. They even provided a nice selection of DVDs, books, and games that made for some fun and relaxing evenings. Not to mention the jetted tub.
What an AMAZING VIEW from both inside the home and the large deck!! We have stayed at a number of vacation rentals, but this place is at the top of our list. We will be back for sure!!

TRULY A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to thank you for our trip, it was amazing and a big part of it, is due to your lovely home. It is truly a home away from home. Everything was perfect! Your attention to details is uncanny.
Also you and your wife could be our friends, your taste in movies and books are so similar to ours, it was funny :) thanks for the French movie selection, I was born in France and enjoy watching film from my country!

Orcas was peaceful and a perfect place to relax. We walked the dog at cascade lake and did the loop there, went up Mt Constitution, hiked Obstruction pass, and shopped in Eastsound. We didn't want to leave! We will be back.
Thank you again for making your home a perfect place for guests.

A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I have been taking two trips a year together since 1987. We have to say that this year’s vacation on Orcas Island is one that will stay in our hearts and on our minds for a long time. The setting is peaceful and laid back, the scenery is gorgeous and the people are friendly, helpful, welcoming. And to top it off, this beautiful home with its breath taking view and warm, cozy floor plan make this trip one of our top vacation places. Anything and everything you could possibly want is provided, the house is immaculate and still very comfortable. It is such a lovely location that one can sit for hours just gazing out the spacious windows, watching the ferries and other activities float from island to island. It is an awesome house in an amazing part of the country. You will enjoy everything about your experience in Orcas!My friend and I have been taking two trips a year together since 1987.

RELAXATION AT ITS BEST!

  • 5 of 5
This home is quite secluded above the East Sound of Orcas Island, yet it was a short 15 minute drive to the town of East Sound, where we found many shops and some wonderful restaurants. The home is clean, modern, well equipped, and comfortable, with an open floor plan that allowed easy conversation. Bedrooms - very nice! The kitchen is much larger that pictures make it seem. Very modern laundry facilities. We also enjoyed feeding the deer that would come into the yard in the evenings. They like red apples better than green ones! We saw deer all over the island. Whale watching was awesome! We used Outer Island out of Smuggler's Cove. They quickly found a pod, which we followed for an hour or more before a couple of Dahl porpoises joined the party! We also saw a couple of bald eagles, harbor seals, and about a dozen huge sea lions. We took a casual drive through Crow Valley over to the West Sound and Deer Harbor. We found a quaint little store in Doe Bay where I found some retro toys for my grandkids. Everywhere we went was beautiful. We had fantastic scallops and filet mignon at the Madrona Grill, enjoyed a quite lunch at Rosario, and shared a burger with a lively crowd at the Lower Tavern. All in all, a fantastic trip to Orcas. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable stay with a beautiful East Sound view.
