Orcas House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms

Topaz on San Juan Island-Dock, Pool, Private Beach and 1200 ‘ of Exquisite San Juan Island Waterfront! This premier home was just listed and is now available for 2014 summer bookings!

Nestled between a sapphire sea and ten acres of emerald green forest, Topaz sparkles like a jewel. At the shoreline, a 180 degree vista captures Shaw and Orcas Islands, deep blue waters, and the snow-capped peak of Mt. Baker, directly ahead. The incomparable outlook also includes a private beach, passing sailboats and yachts, ferries headed to Victoria, sea lions, seals, and even the occasional whale. The spectacular views will beckon guests to BBQ, dine, and lounge outdoors on generous wrap-around decking. You’ll also want to spend time exploring the shoreline where there are picnic spots on a pebbled beach rimmed with drift logs and rocky ledges.

There’s a glistening lap pool that will be appreciated on warm days (there is an additional $300 charge if you wish it heated during your stay.) Guests may also utilize the dock to tie up kayaks, canoes, dinghies, and smaller boats, however, the channel can be rough so boats exceeding 25’ are not advised at the dock.

Families of all ages will find Topaz a fabulous vacation destination, but as the home offers 4 bedrooms with 4 private baths, it’s also perfect for couples traveling together. The ambience is casual and relaxed inside, and the wood-paneled interiors are filled with light and volume. Whimsical objects and paintings line the walls, many collected from local artists, and there's an abundant supply of books and games to enjoy while in residence. The dining table seats ten and there is also a game table for four in the living room alcove. The kitchen is expansive, well equipped for meal preparation, and features a large work island, counter seating, and a sun-filled breakfast nook. (The window seat in the nook can also provide a sleeping space for an overflow guest.)

Three bedrooms are on the main level. The master bedroom opens onto a private deck and offers a king size bed and ensuite bathroom with dual vanities, jetted tub, and walk in shower. A second bedroom offers a queen size bed, private bath with shower, and wood burning fireplace. The spacious third bedroom features a wall of shelving and desk that can double as an office. In this room, a queen size murphy bed pulls easily from the wall and there’s also an over-size window-seat that can provide another comfortable sleeping space. The second, smaller window seat might also be used as a bed for a small child. A bath with shower and the laundry are privately located in the hallway leading to this room. The fourth bedroom, located upstairs, offers two twin beds and a private bath with shower.

The custom home is capped by a steeple salvaged from a racetrack and the entry doors were transported from a country church in France (or so the rumor goes.)

Topaz is conveniently located less than five miles of the Town of Friday Harbor at the end of an unpaved, private, road. Those wishing to vacation in a classic San Juan Island setting will find Topaz a true gem.

This home is cared for by a local property manager to make your stay go smoothly. They will help with your reservation, too.

We rented Topaz for the 1st week in August. Our extended family of 8, including 6 adults & 2 small grandchildren, enjoyed the splendid location & generous amenities of the home enormously. We would recommend it heartily to anyone wishing to enjoy a beautiful spot close to restaurants & other attractions, but with wonderful privacy.

Reviewer Comments:
One of the rare times in life when the house and its location is some much better than pictures and descriptions. We had a family reunion (10 people) at Topaz and had plenty of room, enough seating for all indoors and on the deck. The view is outstanding, looking across the water to islands and Mt. Baker. The kitchen is well stocked with gadgets and equipment for the chef in the family. The directions were very clear and well detailed. Also, there is a notebook that is very thorough on any and all components of the house. The house is so enchanting, many family members didn't leave. While others went to Friday Harbor to eat, Cask & Schooner (pretty good), the Whale Museum (small and well worth it), Roche Harbor (very quaint, must see), Lime Kiln to see Orcas (we saw 9!) and the lavender farm in full bloom (end of July). The adults enjoyed the winery, which is very close to Road into Topaz. This is the place to stay on San Juan Island! It doesn't get any better. Well worth the cost.

Reviewer Comments:
Went on a 5-day getaway in July. Location of this home is INCREDIBLE -- isolated on a 10-acre lot, very private, with 280o views of the ocean and the remainder of the view is private woods. About 15 min drive to town for groceries, restaurants, ferry, etc. Kitchen is incredibly well stocked though very disorganized/cluttered -- could use a clean-out. Living room and dining room are quite spacious and there's a nice game table in one corner with lots of cards, puzzles, and board games for use. Plenty of space for 10 adults with 4 couples (8 people) on beds and two people on couches, 4 bathrooms each with a shower, plenty of towels and working washer/dryer. Pool is clean and well taken care of -- worth paying to heat it during your stay! There's also a private dock with space for kayaks or whatever, also a fantastic view.

Our only complaint during our stay was that, despite the rental agreement stating we would receive 2 hour notice prior to any owner or management persons visiting the property (except in case of an emergency, of course), a women came by to inspect the pool 3 times during our stay with no notice -- twice quite early in the morning while we were all still in our pajamas enjoying coffee on the deck, and two of those times being after we sent the management company an e-mail reminding them that we deserve notice prior to them coming by if for no other reason than to let us be in proper clothes and also confident that the visitor is actually someone who is supposed to be there and not a stranger! Having stayed at many VRBO properties before, this is definitely unusual and frankly was uncomfortable (pajamas -- remember?) and rude. We did send them another e-mail about this at the conclusion of our trip so hopefully they rectify this issue.

Other than that, though -- beautiful home and great location for privacy, peace, and a spectacular view/experience of the island!

Reviewer Comments:
One of the most interesting things about this house is that it feels like the owners just left leaving everything as it was when they lived there. It has a really great kitchen, great views, remote and extremely quiet. It could be better if the deck were blown off with each rental and more exterior house maintenance.

What a wonderful break from the heat of hurry of Texas! Outstanding property with pebble beach and rocky outcroppings. Couldn't ask for a better view. Absolutely loved all of the artwork by the owners. Lots of open space inside and great ability to just leave the doors open and hear the sounds of nature. You should definitely book this place!
