SPACIOUS FAMILY HOME OVERLOOKING DEER HARBOR

Deer Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Orcas Getaway is a 2550 SF, 4 bedroom (one king and three queen beds), 2 bath house with a spacious deck and water view, located in the beautiful hamlet of Deer Harbor on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. A quiet, peaceful private retreat with a commanding view of Deer Harbor and Cayou Cuay marinas. Uniquely situated so that most of the rooms and bedrooms have a water view. It is available for year round rental for an extended weekend stay, or weeklong stays.

Whale watching and kayaking tours, sailing charters, rental boats and bicycles, even a bird sanctuary are located within walking distance of your private retreat, as is a restaurant, and convenience market.

Farther afield explore the pristine forests of Moran State Park with its many hiking and biking trails as well as Mount Constitution, which offers what many consider the most magnificent water views in North America. Hike the beautiful 1500 acre Turtleback Mountain Preserve with its grasslands, wildflowers and magnificent Garry Oaks. The views are incredible. The villages on Orcas and the many artists' studios and galleries offer great opportunities for exploration as well. Make your own pottery at The Right Place Pottery. You will never lack for things to do on Orcas Island!

I have been in the building construction industry for 28 years in particular designing major hospitals. Aside from my work, I enjoy my wife and two beautiful daughters. I love to bicycle, hike, sail and watch wildlife.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We love this property at Orcas as it is so peaceful and allows you to 'disconnect' from the hectic pace of life. We chose this location because of the quiet and laid back atmosphere and proximity to the beach at Deer Harbor. It has such a great family feel. What is nice is that it is 12 miles from the main town of Eastsound which is a quaint town full of wonderful shops and activities. You truly get the best of both worlds of relaxation and engagement.

Relaxation with a good book, watching beautiful sunsets, looking at the surrounding landscape, whale watching, watching the deer stroll through the property, long walks on the beach.

BEST STAY

  • 5 of 5
I usually am reluctant to rent private homes but this was a very pleasant surprise. The very best rental we have stayed in! Very very spacious and very clean. Fresh linens and very modern amenities. The owner answered any questions I had and gave very detailed info about use of the house. Great view of Deer Harbor Marina and within walking distance. This is a must stay.... Well worth the money spent!

BETTER THAN ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
We just spent our summer "getaway" in this great family house which we felt looked better in person, than advertised. Great location for us, the older children and adults loved being close to the marina and the house offered plenty of space for the baby to play. We love to cook so the kitchen was fabulous, even better stocked than mine at home with dishes, utensils, accessories, etc. The weather was "Picture Perfect" so we ate every meal out on the deck, including breakfast! The Client's Guide from the owner was very complete and the Suggestion Packet of what to see and do very helpful. We loved the Farmers Market on Saturday and found great fresh produce, oysters and fish along with many other specialty items local to the island. Also appreciated having computer and Wi--Fi Access. Deer Harbor is appropriately named as we saw many wandering around the property . Highly recommend this home.

AWESOME ORCAS GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with friends this weekend (August 26-28, 2011). It all started with the Zozi coupon special for "sailing for 6 in the San Juans". I bought the coupon deal and then began the search for a rental home. One of the gals recommended "vrbo". I found this place as it fit the needs of our group (3 couples, at least 2 baths, etc). I liked the picture of the kitchen. The rest is history as they say. We arrived Friday afternoon and it turns out the house sits directly above the Deer Harbor marina which is where our sailing adventure began on Saturday. All we had to do was walk down the hill to the dock! It was perfect (and I didn't realize this when I booked). The owner, Tom, made the booking process easy. We communicated mainly by email and a little by phone.

The home was well maintained and had everything we needed. It was comfortable and clean. The online pictures were dead on! I would highly recommend this property for families.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect getaway location for our family. Quiet and peaceful location with great view of Deer Harbor, walking distance to the Deer Harbor Marina, nestled in woodlands with lots of nature around. The house was spacious, comfortable and clean and included everything we needed for a great retreat, including board games for the kids and cozy bedrooms. Recommend!

TITLE WAS ACCURATE

  • 5 of 5
Property was clean,well-maintained, spacious, with lovely view of Deer Harbor off the deck. Owner had a complete list of things to do in the area. Kitchen was very well-stocked. It felt like a family home--very comfortable. Both Turtleback Mountain and Mt Constitution have terrific views, are fun to hike, bike or drive. Saturday Farmer's Market is a lot of fun. There's lots to explore on Orcas.

RELAXING SPOT TO HANG OUT AND VISIT THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
We spent three nights in this well-equipped house. There was plenty of room for the seven of us, and since we like to cook, we were pleased that the kitchen was so well equipped.The house was also conveniently located close to the ferry and to East Sound. There was a large deck with a view of the Harbor, and since the weather was great, when we didn't feel like going out, we sat outside and read.

The only drawback was that there were four bedrooms, but only one master bedroom, and the other bedrooms were small, so we flipped a coin to see who would get the larger room.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house to anyone visiting the island.
