FAMILY FRIENDLY PRIVATE VIEW HOME NEAR MORAN STATE PARK

Rosario House Rental Photos and Description

Our 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, house (described by realtors when we bought it as 'Hilltop Haven') is located on the largest, hilliest, and we think the most beautiful of the San Juan Islands, Orcas Island. It is located at an elevation of 500 feet on the western side of Rosario Hill, has great westerly water and island views, and a perfect deck to watch spectacular sunsets from. The house is located on 4 acres in a private, quiet and wooded neighborhood. While neighbors are close by, you do not see other houses from our home, but you are likely to see plenty of wildlife!

We are located just 10 minutes drive from the quaint town of Eastsound where you will find all the amenities you will need including groceries, shopping, art galleries, restaurants, cafes, library, bank, skate park, tennis, playgrounds airport, etc. We are just a 2 minute drive (or 10 min walk) from Moran State Park, the 3rd largest state park in Washington, where you will find miles of hiking, boating, swimming, fishing and camping, as well as Mt. Constitution, from where you will find unbeatable views of the surrounding islands.

The home is located just a 20 minute drive from the ferry landing, so you can easily hop on an inter-island ferry and explore the other islands to your hearts content. Use our home as a base to explore all the fun the islands bring - sailing, kayaking, whale watching, visiting farms, exploring other towns, etc.

Our home was built in 1992 and has a Pacific Northwest style. Downstairs you will find an open floor format with a well equipped kitchen, dining room that seats 8 adults, living room with fireplace and TV, sunroom with seating, library with plenty of books and music as well as toys and games for the kids, and a half bath. Upstairs you will find a master bedroom with full bath and walk in closet, two additional bedrooms, and a second full bath and laundry room. The house sleeps a maximum of 8 adults and 1 toddler. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, one has a double bed and a toddler bed and there are two twin fold out beds in the downstairs library.

We have wireless internet, music throughout the home, telvision with DVD that has access to streaming from the internet if you bring your laptop, but no cable.

Outside the home has 3 decks, one of which is large and has spectacular sunsets looking over East Sound, Turtleback mountain and the Canadian Gulf Islands. A second deck is off the kitchen and has an outdoor grill. The third deck is off the master bedroom. There is plenty of room for the kids to play outside and we have swings, hammock, and even a little tipi for the kids to play in.

My name is Jan and I have two wonderful little girls, Hana (13) and Camille (10). We live in Seattle and travel to our home on Orcas Island as much as possible, all year long. It is a very special place to us. We love to hike, boat and swim on Orcas Island, we love our town, and we love to explore all that the islands have to offer. We have a dog named Max who loves the island too!

Jan Neutz purchased this house in 1999

When I first came to visit the San Juan islands in the early 1990's, I was struck by the beauty of Orcas Island and just kept coming back. I knew that eventually I wanted to own a piece of this island and in 1999 that dream came true when our family purchased this wonderful home. We love the combination of recreational activities that we can do here - on the ocean as well as at the Moran State Park and we enjoy all that the picturesque town of Eastsound brings - all the amenities as well as well a strong sense of community. We also love exploring the other San Juan islands when we get the chance.

When we saw this home in 1999 we instantly fell in love with it.

The Pacific NW open design, custom architecture, and all the wood in the house felt very warm and unique. We loved the large deck and amazing westerly sunset views of Turtleback Mountain and the Islands. We loved the easy floor plan. We loved the private, quiet feeling of the neighborhood and that there would be a place for kids to play. We loved the location - both the proximity to the park and all the recreational activities that would bring for us, and the short drive to town.

Such a beautiful house and location!

This house was everything we could have wanted. The kitchen is huge and the dining table is nearby, so it's perfect for family get-togethers. If anything, the photos understate how beautiful this house is. The setting is serene and it's enhanced by the decor and the artwork. The property was clean, well-equipped and very well-maintained. I would recommend this house to anyone, and I'm hoping that we can return next year!

We arrived for a long weekend over Easter and we were happy to see everything in such good shape and waiting for us. Plenty of room and relaxing space for everyone (4 adults and 2 small kids) to really enjoy the house. The area is beautiful and the owner allowed our dog up as well, so she had a great time exploring some of the immediate area around the house. The view is just as beautiful as the pictures shown. We were lucky when we were there, because the weather was amazing which can be sometimes iffy in the San Juans this time of year. My mother in law was able to bake and cook up a storm and mentioned that she was impressed (oddly) that the house came with oven mitts. She travels a lot and said usually this is a forgotten item. Overall, the trip was great and we left very happy with our time spent in the house.

Enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving. It was our first time to Orcas Island and we couldn't have asked for a better location for our visit. The home is spacious and comfortable with fantastic views. The heated floors were really nice too! Only a stones throw away from scenic Moran State Park which has an excellent network of trails. Highly recommended.

Our group of 9 had a relaxing and enjoyable vacation at the Hilltop Haven. The home is very spacious and well stocked with toys and games, a great kitchen, lots of privacy and wonderful views. We would definately recommend this home for families as there is lots of room outside for the kids to run around and enjoy nature.

Nice owner. Wonderful convenient location. Beautiful house with charming artwork and lovely housewares. We had a mini family reunion there with 3 generations and everyone from 75 to 4 months had a grand time. Gorgeous views, well-equipped kitchen led us to cook and eat in even more than we had planned. We'd picked blackberries while waiting for the ferry in Anacortes, and even had an amazing blackberry pie!

Already dreaming about a return visit next summer!
