About the property

Comfortable 3 Bed/2 Bath home with beautiful sea views

Aurora House is a wonderful Pacific Northwest style cedar home with soaring ceiling and a wall of windows. End of a country road privacy guarantees a quiet, relaxing vacation. A huge deck with a gas BBQ and 6 person hot tub look out over the ocean. The deck is also a great spot to view deer, otter, seals, sea lions and eagles. One lot away you will find a serene park with a trail and steps leading to a peaceful cove beach.

The downstairs bedroom and the loft master suite have queen beds and a stunning water view. The third bedroom features a bunk bed with double and single beds.

We offer wi-fi for your laptop, satellite TV, and plenty of movies, books, and board games. We also supply a playpen for the youngsters.

We are 4.5 miles from Eastsound and 8.3 miles from Moran State Park with its many trails, lakes and Mount Constitution. Both Cascade Lake and Mountain Lake offer fishermen the opportunity for catching rainbow and cutthroat trout, kokane and bass. You can also book an ocean charter for silver salmon fishing. Favorite activities are kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and scenic drives. Be sure to take a whale watching trip or board the inter-island ferry to the charming town of Friday Harbor or one of the other nearby islands. Another ferry can take you to Vancouver Island where you can catch a bus to the lovely and historic city of Victoria BC.

Bike and kayak rentals are available in the village or at the ferry landing. Well marked and scenic island hikes range from easy loop trails to all day strenuous mountain climbs. The village offers shopping, movies, a playhouse, bookstore, coffee shops, bakeries, and many fine restaurants.

Just bring your clothes and groceries; everything else is provided for you. Spend your holidays in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. We know you will have a great time!

Very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Large beautiful home overlooking the water. Very spacious and had ample supplies and very well stocked with anything and everything that we may have needed. If I could change anything it would be to have a king bed in master, plenty of room for it. Entry to home was a breeze and google maps got us there with no problem. The private community beach was spectacular and I recommend visiting it often. Highly recommend this rental!

Tranquil Setting in the San Juan Islands

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent our 25th wedding anniversary week here, so peaceful & quiet, what a wonderful setting! Although there are many activities to do on Orcas Island there was nothing better than sitting in the property's brand new spa soothing our bodies as we looked out over the distant islands listening to the various wildlife above and around us. We tried a couple of restaurants, highly recommend Madrona Pub with their pan fried oysters or seared scallops and a Mai Tai while sitting on the deck overlooking Eastsound. The burger selection & quality at the Lower Tavern was excellent. We had our anniversary dinner at Rosario Resort, the head chef came to our table, wished us a happy anniversary, and proceeded to give us a surprise dessert using his own handcrafted ice cream. We Q'd it up a couple times over the week and used the new crock pot as well to whip up one of our favorite dishes. Amazing location, great owner, quiet neighbors, who we respected by returning the favor. And don't forget to drive to the top of Mount Constitution, the views are incredible!

Cozy, beautiful views and well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated that this vacation rental was exactly as depicted on HomeAway. The tranquility of this spot was exactly what we hoped for, many hours spent in the hottub, watching boats and wildlife. Deer frequently stroll through the yard, and we were happy with the stocked firewood for rainy day hours we spent reading in front of the indoor wood stove.

There are ample towels, warm blankets, a nice kitchen and outdoor bbq. Although secluded, we could be at Island restaurants and the grocery store in ten minutes.

Hope to visit Orcas again and would definitely recommend staying here! Happy travels.

Orcas Island's peaceful, laid back vibe is nicely balanced by a thriving arts community, award-winning restaurants, boutiques, cafes, galleries, and a history museum. The abundant outdoor activities combined with a backdrop of stunning natural beauty and temperate climate make this Pacific Northwest island a very special place.
