Overview

West Sound House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8) Waterfront Home With Incredible Gardens.

This vacation destination on beautiful Orcas Island is a dose of therapeutic tranquility. Arrive by ferry and wind through the majestic San Juan Islands or by seaplane with breath taking aerial views of the Island gems. The seaplane dock at the West Sound Marina is just a stroll from the house and only a couple miles drive from the ferry landing. There is also a private mooring buoy for those who wish to arrive by private boat.

Nestled on White Beach Bay cove, this waterfront home overlooks Picnic Island and the West Sound of Orcas Island. The deck and stone patios are perched on a medium bank allowing for relaxing meditative views. A gate and stairs take you down to the beach for some of the best wildlife viewing in the Pacific Northwest. View the eagles that perch daily on the Douglas fir snags of Picnic Island, harbor seals and otters catching fish and crab, Blue Herons, Osprey, Kingfishers and a host of other migrating water fowl. You will not be disappointed! The house is surrounded by a decades old well maintained Japanese garden.

Orcas Island itself has been deemed the 'Gem of the Pacific Northwest'. There is something for everyone on the Island. Stroll through the quaint East Sound Village with restaurants to satisfy nearly every palate, artwork galleries galore, weekly Saturday Farmer's market and other continuous events, parades, music and theater. Drive up to Mt.Constitution and view one of the top two marine views in the world that stretches from glacier covered volcanoes to the Island studded Puget Sound. There are miles and miles of hiking and mountain biking in Moran state park, lakes for picnicking, , fishing, swimming and boat rentals. The Island is popular for street bikers as well, with roads that weave through miles of farm land and rocky shores. The sea kayaking is particularly magnificent. There are fishing charters for salmon, halibut, bottom fish, and whale watching tours with the headliner local Orca whale pod.

Whether you are coming here for relaxation and healing, dining and shopping, outdoor adventure, or to write that book you always dreamed you would have the opportunity - This is the place!

True tranquility

  • 5 of 5
Well traveled life but found true tranquility in this phenomenal property. Lush oriental gardens and paths to walk, to contemplate and appreciate life. Very well appointed and spacious accommodations for a family or couples to share. Set up for wireless but put it away and just become renewed and refreshed by the beauty of surroundings; watched 2 hummingbirds darting in and out amongst beautiful flowers and saw a soaring eagle. Very quiet and private, have own beach where you can readily find oysters and clams. Just a short walk from docks where float plane lands and slips for boats. Will return to this special place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write and share your wonderful experiences with us. This is such a beautiful home with gardens that I am glad you made time to take in all the surroundings. And probably the item that was most important was that you "unplugged" while here. I wish all of our guests would leave the cell phones and internet behind like you did and reconnect with this beauty of Orcas Island. Property Manager KJKS
