STUNNING HOUSE ON WATERFRONT POINT

Rosario House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You can't get any closer to the water than this house which sits on a secluded point with 180º views up and down Eastsound. Originally built as an architect's retirement dream home, it is set on beautiful acreage of forested property full of red-barked Madrona trees and Douglas Firs at the end of a private driveway, the house is located in the popular Rosario Shores area, down a scenic gravel road, about 3/4 miles from Rosario Resort and Marina, about a 1.5 mile walk to Moran Park, and about a 15 minute drive into Eastsound. It has decks on all sides of the house, and from the front, which sits 20 feet above the water, you can watch the otters, seals, cranes, eagles, and occasionally loons. The property sits along a well-traveled deer path, and they can be viewed while you relax in the deck-mounted hot tub. There is stairway beach access to the private (rocky) beach down a short path. The house was built in the 1970's to showcase modern Northwest design of that era, including masterful teak woodwork in the kitchen and master bath areas, and raised covered walkways over a garden courtyard of Japanese Maple and Irises. The interior was renovated by later owners, the latest project including massive picture windows added to open views north and south in nearly every room. The living room is large, comfortable, and bright. Although this house could accommodate more, we have listed it as a maximum of 6 occupants due to a conditional rental permit placed on the house by the County. That means that it can very comfortably sleep 6. The photos tell more about the house as there is too much to list, but it could be said that this is an ideal vacation rental for those who want a very nice Orcas Island vacation experience.

In 1972, when I was just 7, my parents bought a vacation property next door, and I've been coming back here ever since. In 2010, I bought this house (next door) because we wanted to keep the house and adjoining property with the family. The area has been very special for me growing up, and now I have a wife and kids of my own who absolutely love coming here, so I know that this place inspires a special magic for kids and adults alike. I have seen some beautiful and exotic locations around the globe, but inevitably my thoughts gravitate towards this place. It is hard to describe the feeling you get from 'unwinding' on this island, but if you stay here for awhile, you will understand what people mean when they say they can actually feel the stress leaving their body after a few days.

Stunning Home with Breathtaking Views on Beautiful Orcas Island

  • 5 of 5
My family recently traveled from all over the country to Orcas Island to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday and we couldn't have had a more idyllic backdrop for the occasion. This home is exceedingly beautiful and made our trip more memorable than we ever could have imagined! The house is truly a gem and sits right on the water so most of our time was spent gazing at the ocean from the expansive back deck. From watching the harbor seals play in the water and exploring the abundance of sea life in the tide pools (there were more starfish than I have ever seen in one place in addition to fish, crabs, and jellyfish) to enjoying the gorgeous weather while reclining on the deck's chaise lounges (sometimes moody and brisk, other times sunny and gorgeous), spending time at the house was an absolute highlight of our trip.

The house was very well appointed and immaculately clean and each room had something special to offer. The bedrooms were very comfortable, the living areas were warm and inviting, and we took advantage of the brick fireplace every night. The location of this home is also spectacular. Just five minutes or so away from Moran State Park, we spent a few afternoons exploring the beautiful lakes, trails and waterfalls. I'm not one to write online reviews but I was completely unable to resist writing a glowing review of this rental. We loved everything about this place and our experience (the home owner, Tom, was so helpful and accommodating in booking and planning our trip) and we so look forward to going back again.

Amazing rental,

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property over labor day. Words cannot begin to describe how amazing this house is and how great Tom was to work with. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable.

The house is a great getaway location and amazing views. The property had a lot of fun options: exploring the starfish, clams and geoducks on the water, hiking around, dinner in the garden patio and lounging on the deck and soak up the views. We had a great time and hopefully we can make it an annual trip!

Texans at Orcas

  • 5 of 5
We stayed almost a week at this beautifully decorated and architecturally designed home and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Even in the summer with all there was to see, we lingered in the house. We arrived to find fresh flowers on the table and sparkling clean floor to ceiling windows all across the back of the house - the water couldn't have been more beautiful from INSIDE! We had a family of 5 and so the configuration of the house worked perfectly. Grandmother had the master suite on the main floor. Husband and I and 2 teens had the upstairs (2 rooms and loft) with shared bath. Be sure you are comfortable with 3 rooms sharing the same bath. Every detail of the house was thoughtfully considered and no expense spared from the screens to the unbelievably gourmet kitchen. You will want for nothing! We didn't use the bottom floor which is where the washer dryer is. (There is also one in the master suite, but it was such a fancy French (?) kind, we couldn't figure out how to use it.) That room would be good for someone who enjoyed some privacy while still being with the group because it was more isolated from the rest of the open floor plan of the house. The owner was extremely helpful and prompt with the couple of minor problems we did have and had GREAT food recommendations. You could tell he is a foodie. The deck setting was clearly designed by those who love to gaze and enjoy the water. Lounge chairs of the highest quality and benches under a wood structure allow you to leisurely spend time in or out of the sun on the deck. There were the MOST incredible starfish under the deck and deer came to lie in the side yard. We would rent here and from Tom again in a heartbeat!!! Wouldn't consider going anywhere else in Orcas even if it were just my husband and me.

Idyllic get-away

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful setting with breathtaking scenery. Every morning we woke to a full view of the water. The architecture of the house has great fun, modern features, and it's very warm and cozy. You can spend hours just lounging inside with a fireplace, or outside on the deck. Our family travels often and this is one of the most peaceful and beautiful spots we have ever stayed. It's perfect for small kids too- we all felt like pioneers walking through the nearby woods, and climbing over the rocks near the crystal clear water. The hot tub is in a perfect spot- great for romantic evenings or a night with pals. The town is a quick ride, and our host left great recommendations on where to eat and what to do. We look forward to a return visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to submit a review. I'm glad you mentioned that the property is a special place for kids, because it brought many years of joy to me as a kid and now as an adult, watching my kids explore the beach and play in the woods. Glad you had a great time !

We spent an amazing week at this Orcas jewel! The house has amazing views and amenities - cable, wi-fi, hot tub, coffee/espresso makers, board/card games, etc. It is secluded but is a short walk to Rosario and a quick drive to Eastsound. It is very near the state park. We loved the hot tub and fires with the readily available firewood. House was perfect for our relaxing get away with our family. The home could comfortably accommodate sleeping for more adults (probably 10) but the spaciousness was great for the four of us plus two babies. We were the first renters so there were a few kinks to work out - but the owner was incredibly responsive, helpful, and accommodating. Rental process was easy and quick. Would definitely stay here again and again! Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the helpful review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - our ultimate goal ! Because you were the first renters, I also appreciate the feedback you gave me on ways to improve the house for future guests and will strive to update and improve the house whenever possible. This May, for example, the house will be closed for 2 weeks while we add 5 more sets of picture windows. We look forward to seeing you again the future !
