ORCAS OASIS - MARINE VIEWS PRIVATE SETTING WITH JACUZZI & POOL

Orcas Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, Main House and Guest House

This 14 acre secluded estate on the top of Scott Hill on Orcas Island is truly an oasis. It has over 180 degrees of magnificent marine and mountain views. Enjoy the 3,400 feet of living space on the main level plus the many luxury amenities like our 70-foot lap pool, complete exercise room, and hot tubs-- all with fantastic views. Explore our woods, pick fresh fruits, herbs, and greens in our organic garden, start a campfire and enjoy the westerly views, or just pick your favorite spot to relax. Listen to the birds sing while you relax in the hammock next to the ponds set in a peaceful opening in the Douglas fir forests. Then sit back, at the end of the day, with a drink and your friends and watch the sun set over the Gulf Islands.

As you enter our main house you will be immediately drawn to the expansive ocean views from the many windows of the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The main living area has a large screen TV; a large dining table; a family room; and spacious kitchen with all dishes and utensils needed to cook a gourmet meal. These areas, most bedrooms, the master bathroom, and the sitting area all have vaulted beamed ceilings, stone counters, elegant built-in cabinets, and custom dining tables. The 3 bedrooms (all with queen beds) are in the other end of the house with two bathrooms, a laundry room, and a sitting room with two stained glass windows and space for the convertible beds. The numerous decks add space to enjoy the peaceful views.

Our guest house also has beamed ceilings, stone counters, and elegant built-in cabinets. The design and accommodations are as nice as the main house - just smaller (with 3+ beds). Our guest house is available for rental off-season when the main house is not reserved. Even, when not listed in VRBO rates, please call Owner with any questions about guest house rental.

The lower level of the main house contains a 70-foot indoor lap pool, a 3/4 bath, pool table area with wet bar and refrigerator, and a fully-equipped exercise room. The VRBO Instant Quote does not include access to our spa level. Go to our website's (orcasoasis.com) Reservation page to add access to spa level with hot tub, pool, exercise room, & pool table.

Also available is a picnic area with a fire ring so you can enjoy a campfire with s'mores and beautiful sunsets.

Orcas Oasis also has a lovely meadow with wildflowers, space to run and explore, or play a game of horseshoes or croquet. There are two ponds where you can relax in the hammock and enjoy the sound of the birds splashing in the water.

Bob & Barb moved from Minnesota to be close to the ocean and to sail. We bought a great 40ft racing sailboat and spent much of the last 13 years in competitive racing in the Pacific NW. Before moving we went shopping for land on Orcas and purchased 16 acres on the top of Scott Hill in the Victorian Valley. We built a custom home and guest home designed by renowned local Architect Roy Lundgren.

Barb Brunius purchased this estate in 1998

We built on the Scott Hill location due to its fantastic marine views to the SE, South, West ans NW. We also never tire of the year-round great sunsets. We built on Orcas Island because of its location -- on the water and close enough to the mountains for convenient skiing without living in the snow. We also love the weather. Orcas has short winters without much snow, cherry blossoms in February and March, sunny summers, and generally moderate temperatures.

Privacy with expansive marine and mountain views, bird songs in a peaceful setting, camp fires in the woods, relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the indoor 70-foot lap pool, and exercise facilities so you don't feel too decadent enjoying all the other amenities.

Beautiful Retreat!

We were four couples and fit very comfortably into this lovely home with the most exquisite views, Barb and Bob Brunius have made sure their guests have everything they might need in the kitchen, the entire home was very clean, and the pool perfectly maintained. We went on several great hikes on the island, and had an afternoon kayaking where we saw harbor seals and a bald eagle taking off right overhead. The island has many art oriented stores...great shopping! I recommend Orcas Oasis very wholeheartedly!

Amazing vacation home!!

I don't even know where to start with this review, everything was wonderful! The pictures in the advertisement do not show how amazing it its. The house was fantastic, they had everything we could have needed. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing simple and gourmet meals. The view from every window in the house was breathtaking. There was more than enough space for everyone in our party to stay very comfortably (13 ppl). The patio was covered so even when it rained we were about to enjoy morning coffee and evening dinner outside. Bob and Barb were really great to work with. They were available when needed and there presence went unknown when we didn't need them. They are very down to earth and that made the stay even better. If you are considering renting this place look no further it really is the best!

Outstanding Property for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We found the listing description accurately represented the actual property. The property is fairly represented by the photos but do not adequately reflect the beauty of the property. The setting atop Scott Hill allows fantastic views of sunrise and sunset in addition to the ability to see surrounding islands and the beautiful water. Orcas Oasis is well maintained and equipped and the owners, Barb and Bob, were readily available to answer questions and make recommendations on the surrounding attractions. If hiking is of interest, you will find a climb to the summit of Turtleback Mountain a challenge, the trail around Cascade Lake in Moran State Park to be easier and the trails in Obstruction Pass State Park ranging from easy to difficult. All offer great scenery to enjoy. Our hikers ranged in age from 7 to 74. Other activities we enjoyed included kayaking, whale watching, salmon fishing (caught enough to feed 12 people with leftovers), a visit to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island is a must and if you have time, an auto excursion around the island to see light houses and the lavender farm is a must. Back on Orcas Island a trip to the top of Mount Constitution is a priority and on your return to Orcas Oasis stop in Rosario at the Rosario Resort and Spa for a drink. A concern we had was whether or not to shop for groceries in Anacortes before catching the ferry to Orcas. We waited and found the Island Market in Eastsound to be well stocked and reasonably priced. Back at Orcas Oasis we enjoyed the hot tub, swimming pool, exercise room, horseshoes and just lazily walking the property. What a fabulous place to vacation and being from Texas and southern California we thoroughly enjoyed the cooler August temperatures.

Unforgetable vacation!

We stayed at Orcas Oasis for a week in August 13. The property is extremely well maintained, beautifully designed and and offers stunning views of the sea and the surrounding islands from just about every corner of the main house. For those who are looking for a relaxing tranquil and quiet time this is the place to be. There is so much to do on the island we wished we had more time.
Barb and Bob are great hosts. They are always available for any need but never intrusive.
The wild peacocks were nice surprise!
Thank you Barb and Bob for the immortal memories!

It was fantastic. My 11 year old's comment was best vacation ever. We rented bikes in town and rode the back roads and saw beautiful scenery. We even tried out the driving range at the golf course. On the whale cruise we saw Minke and Orcas, harbor porpoise and seals. From the house we saw numerous bald eagles, and from the front room you can see the fireworks from the different islands (during the 4th) . Everyone loved seeing tree frogs, roasting marshmallows, playing horse shoes, and exploring the property. We hiked Mt. Constitution and saw landscape similar to Lord of the Rings. The entire island is nice, residents were very helpful and pleasant and the entire experience is worth another vacation.

Car: recommended

1 mile from the Orcas Ferry landing. Google Maps (or your car's G.P.S.) should be accurate from ferry landing to Orcas Oasis. But don't count on GPS to find your way around Orcas as the maps often do not show Orcas local roads accurately.

We are 1 miles from a great grocery store, marina, restaurant, kayak tours, tour boats to see Orca whales, and coffee shop. We are 2 miles from Westsound village and about 7 miles from Eastsound.
