'THE HOMESTEAD' ON EASTSOUND'S WATERFRONT!

Eastsound House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enjoy your vacation in this delightful, lovingly renovated vintage island home! Built by settlers in 1908, it embodies the fascinating history of these beautiful San Juan Islands. The house is centrally located in Orcas Island's Eastsound Village -- called one of the most charming travel destinations in America. Fenced yard with lovely landscaping ensures your privacy, while enjoying proximity to all conveniences. This coastal classic is equally appealing for a romantic get-away, or for a gathering of family and friends.

Stroll to Orcas Island's Farmer's Market and barbeque on your deck, or enjoy a meal in one of Eastsound's heralded restaurants offering world-class cuisine. A bookstore and lattes are just around the corner, and whalewatch tours and/or kayak rentals can be arranged nearby. Walk to the public dock just yards away for boating excursions. Watch sunsets, eagles, and the abundant wildlife around Indian Island. Facing southwest, your view includes the bay, shoreline of picturesque Eastsound, and unmatched island sunsets. Only 10 miles from the ferry landing, and 10 miles from majestic Moran State Park and Mt. Constitution, this location is really the perfect hub for your trip.

Four bedrooms offer lots of privacy, with one bedroom on the ground floor and three upstairs. Master bedroom overlooks the gorgeous view. Fully equipped kitchen with all amenities. Large flatscreen TV's in the living room and downstairs bedroom. Enjoy a drink on the deck and absorb the magic of Orcas Island. We look forward to welcoming you!

(Well-behaved pets welcome).

We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!) so are true islanders. We can suggest not only major travel activites, but little known gems on island backroads. We are raising two daughters here -- no better place in the world!

Susan Gudgell purchased this house in 2006

We have always loved this house as it is an intrinsic architectural element on the charming Eastsound shoreline. We welcomed the opportunity to restore it to its original glory.

Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the deck, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and love the many delicious varied options for an evening out.

Family visit to the Homestead

My husband, kids and I stay on the San Juan Islands fairly often. Eastsound village is the best village on all the islands for shopping, art, and restaurants, while being on a gorgeous bay so we decided to try a house closer in than usual. The Homestead was tucked away down a lane off the main street with amazing views from the back and side and we walked everywhere - only taking the car to explore other parts of the island. The homeowner was incredibly responsive and we so appreciated not being charged an exorbitant cleaning fee. The house is a lovely old craftsman style with reading nooks tucked away in a few places and modern bathrooms with old fashioned features like deep claw-foot tubs with jets. The sun was shining as usual even though it was February. You could easily have 10 people stay here and not feel crowded, yet the 4 of us were also so comfortable. Highly recommend this place.

We came to Orcas to celebrate my mother in law's 60th birthday and run the 25k race. This was a perfect location in Eastsound one block from town. The view was outstanding from the porch. The house was perfect for kids and was a great place to relax and hangout with family. I would recommend this rental to anyone and would love to stay again.

Home away from home

In short, this home is really home away from home. It was clean and well maintained with all household utilities one may need. We were particularly impressed with how child friendly it was (security gates, high chair). It is perfectly located in the town centre, surrounded by nice restaurants and coffee shops, and yet right on the beach and away from any noise. The view from the terrace was amazing and we spent much time barbecuing on the terrace and enjoying the view. The owner was very helpful and flexible to our needs. We will try and stay in the same house next time we come to visit Orcas.

The owner was very helpful with us, providing us two baby cribs and high chairs. She was extremely responsive. The location is excellent right in town, walking distance to a grocery store. Beautiful view of the water. Cozy and cute home. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
