About Melanie Tucker
*****This is our SECOND home to own on Orcas. We have been with VRBO for 4 years and sold our starter home/rental because our family is getting bigger everyday.***** We have 5 ( yes, F-I-V-E) kids ranging from 8 to teens. We are transplants from Texas and simply love the beauty that surrounds us in the PNW. The San Juan Islands are just magical and Orcas offers a lot of families to seek out. We travel extensively and want our home to feel like "home" the minute you walk in the doors. Pop the cork, pour a glass of wine and just sit and enjoy the view. Kids will enjoy the adventures they can find on our 5 acres property. Where else will you find a full size tepee?!

Why Melanie Tucker chose Eastsound
This is a one of kind property that you won't find anywhere else on the island. Close to town (1 mile) but secluded when you are wanting to get away from it all. It is comfortable, luxurious and just a place to gather with your loved ones. It is also a great way to team build with your company!! We want you to love it as much as we do. This is our home away from home. We are looking forward to retiring to the island and this was "THE ONE" for us. The craftsmanship of this home is amazing. Just look at the fireplace!! No detail left out.

Amazing Home on Orcas Island
Absolutely beautiful home on Orcas Island. Perfect for a family of 4 and beyond (if use bunkhouse). We would definitely stay here again. Views were incredible.
Thank you for staying with us, Seth. It was a delight to host you and your family. We're so glad you had plenty of room for everyone!
You are welcome back anytime!
Perfect Family or Friend Retreat
This beautiful property sits atop a perfect overlook of the island. You could easily just stay here and never go exploring but the location makes running into town a quick jaunt. We will definitely return!
Thank you for the great review! It is hard to leave that deck when you are out there , you get so relaxed.
Please come back and visit us
It is a wonderful home with every amenity . Our family enjoyed our time and the marvelous views!
Thank you for staying with us!! We are so glad you enjoyed the property. Remember us if you ever come back to Orcas Island—- the door is always open!
The perfect retreat
This property could not be more stunning. The owners clearly have put a lot of thought and care into it. The appliances are high-quality, and they have everything you need to really feel at home there. Better than home! The location could not be better because town is just a short drive down the road.
The house manager, Sherri, was extremely helpful with the one drawback--the yellow jackets! Everyone worked hard to try to get them under control.
Even with the yellow jackets, we spent as much time as we could on the spectacular deck. Sunrise and sunset were just unbelievable from this home. And the firepit and hot tub were used daily.
I just really love this house. I can't wait to return.
Thank you for your kind words! We strive to make our home an oasis from the “rat race”!
Spring brought a LOT of rain and I guess some yellow jackets! We are treating them aggressively and apologize for any annoyance!
We hope you will come back. Pleas know our door is always open.
Amazingly beautiful property!
This was the perfect place for our family to spend time combining east and west coast cousins for quality time together and to meet the newest (10 weeks old) member of our family. The view is so unbelievably gorgeous that upon arrival we cancelled some inside dinner reservations in favor of sitting at the long table on the deck overlooking the beautiful San Juan Islands. We were mesmerized by the changes in light and color as the sun set.
The owners have truly thought of everything and are incredibly generous with their special home full of art and beauty. Everything anyone could need was provided. The beds were comfortable, the linens were high quality, and the spaces were well thought-out. We especially appreciated the baby books and Pack and Play crib.
The hot tub on the deck was a nice touch, the swing overlooking the garden was restful, the koi pond was lovely, and the teepee was fun to check out; we feel we had only just begun to explore all this home had to offer before we had to leave after 4 nights.
The long tables and large open spaces were perfect for reconnecting with our family. We created memories in this magical place that will last a lifetime.
I have stayed at many rental homes in very nice places and this home ranks at the top for all it offers.
It makes us so very happy to hear that your family visit was amazing! It is our goal to provide an environment that offers a place for relaxation and fun. We have a large family and knew the moment we saw this property we could offer others a place to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Please come back — The door is always open!
