Orcas House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Karemar Cove-Welcome to Grandma's House on beautiful Orcas Island! It's a warm and cozy home filled with family pictures, collectables, books, and furnishings from an era past, and OH - what a setting!

If you anticipate luxury furnishings or contemporary design this home won't be for you, but for those seeking a memorable family experience and close connection with nature, this spectacular Orcas Island waterfront property offers peaceful tranquility and private beach access.

Karemar Cove - 50 acres of designated forest land and a pristine waterfront property- features the Orcas Island setting that everyone imagines, yet so few properties offer. Here, you can enjoy beautiful views, including Mt. Baker on a clear day, stroll through the woods, wander to a nearby pebble cove to sit on a log, listen to the lapping waves, unwind completely, and savor the sights and sounds of nature.

The owner will likely drop by to provide directions that may enhance your enjoyment of this park-like property. The campfire-picnic area and beach is shared with other family homes, but you family will have plenty of room to roam - and so will Rover. There's even an outdoor kennel.

An extensive collection of eclectic and spiritual decor items in this home reflects the owner's personal tastes and the broad canvas of her life's experiences. The rustic atmosphere will get you in touch with nature and many books, movies and albums are provided for indoor activities.

Reviewer Comments:
While the on-line description explained that this was a cottage without frills, we nevertheless were disappointed. It was clean and generally "as advertised", but the location was remote portion of the island, trees and brush on property were a bit overgrown, lighting in the house could have been enhanced, and so forth. Might work well for some people - - just not a good fit for us.

This property is beautiful but, the inside is a little dated and dirty feeling. When we walked in it smelled like wet dog. The private cove is great and if you are not having to spend much time inside it's a great location.

Reviewer Comments:
My family of 4 which includes two children under four years old and my mother stayed for four nights. The location, view, size and layout of home were fantastic! The property is older and the decor reflects that(which I knew) they also allow dogs which I also knew. But the home was not just old and dated(which is what we wanted) it was dirty. The shag carpet which smelt horrible and grossed me out to watch my kids play on should be replaced with a vinyl or laminit if you allow animals. The pillow in the kids room had mold on it, the blanket and pillow had what we think was old tooth paste with hair on it! The bathroom had carpet and smelt like urine! The carpet was not secured and my husband who has a disability slipt and jolted his body on it which was very painful for him. It's a hazord and should be removed. The basement smelt of mold(very strong). The kitchen cooking utenzles seemed to be as old has the home and dirty and or rusty. The home was far too personal to be a vacation rental. I have never rented a property that seemed as if they lived there but just removed their clothing. Family photos and religious decor made you feel uncomfortable. We made the best of it because we spent so much on our only family vacation of the year, the location and view were so amazing, but paying so much for cleaning and feeling like it has never been cleaned made use feel ripped off:(. We were disappointed.

Reviewer Comments:
We were very happy with our stay at Karemar Cove. Joan (the homeowner who stays next door) is wonderful to talk to. She made us feel so welcome and our dogs as well. The home itself felt like going to visit my grandparents - lots of history on the walls and a comfortable, cozy living room with dog friendly carpet. Other reviews have said the house smelled musty, we didn't notice that at all (and I have a sensitive nose.) Very peaceful and quiet - lots of room for kids and dogs to roam. I relished in the rare luxury of a beach all to myself on Orcas Island. We will be back!
