We invite you to come and enjoy our beautiful Orcas Island vacation home. Our home was completed in 2006 and is located at the end of a dead-end, private road. There is only 1 house next to ours, but totally private and separate, the other side of us is wilderness. The house is built on a STEEP rock hillside (so no 'yard') and offers unrestricted views of the water and the best sunsets EVER.

You CANNOT access the water from our home, but you are only about a 2 minute drive to several beaches and swimming areas. We are 1 mile from Rosario Marina, and we also recommend Cascade Park which has paddle boats, kids play station, etc. Please see the map that shows you where all these are from the home.

DOWNSTAIRS: All bedrooms are located downstairs, as are the 'one' full bath (shower/bath combo) and bonus/theater room. Two of the three bdrms (the master and queen bdrm) have their own glass patio doors leading to the lower deck areas with the same incredible views! You will be able to view the water when you wake up, while lying in bed. (PLEASE NOTE: the queen bdrm with the patio door is broke and CANNOT be opened any more. This cannot be fixed). All rooms have their own private doors to the hallway. The third bdrm is part of the bonus room, as it is the entire length of the house. In this 'bonus room' , one end is the theater room, the middle is the bdrm portion with two regular queen size beds, and the other end is our version of a workout room with a weight bench, a couple of weights, one elliptical and 2 row machines. There is also a deep freeze for lots of food storage!! It is a huge room! Kids like to 'camp out' in this room. In this bonus room we also store two queen, high-rise aero beds w/electric pumps and two sleeping bags - if needed. Lots of blankets and pillows. There is only one pack-n-play crib (no highchair available yet - sorry)

SIDE NOTE - 2016 - IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION THAT THE BONUS ROOM PROJECTOR MAY BE ACTING UP. THIS WILL BE LOOKED AT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - BUT WILL TAKE TIME DUE TO BEING ON AN ISLAND.

The only full bathroom is downstairs and independent of all rooms (has full size tub/shower combo).

UPSTAIRS: Living room, utilitity, kitchen, half bath (no shower or tub), office. Upstairs living area also has a glass patio door with fantastic water views from the upper deck. There is a small office in which there are two small desks in case you bring your laptop. There is also a printer that can take your camera's memory card and print and/or download to your computer to email to your friends and family immediately. FULLY equiped kitchen. Full size washer/dryer (soap etc not included). We have a crab cage at the house for your use, so if you rent a boat - take it to go crabbing. We have a crab pot at the house to cook your freshly caught crab as well.

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING:

We are approximately 5.8 miles (10 mins) from downtown Eastsound (where all the shopping is located); 20 minutes from the ferry docks; and just around the corner from the most popular spots – Moran State Park (site seeing, hiking, picnicing, etc); Cascade Park (about a 2 minute drive from our house - swimming, water rentals, hiking, picnicing, etc.); Rosario Marina (1 mile from our house - great for watching boats and water planes land and take off, spa, restaurant, etc); and the ever popular restaurant Inn at Ship Bay.

So, if you enjoy wildlife, peace and quite with incredible scenery and sunsets, then you will truly enjoy our home. Guaranteed a great sunset every night, unless Mother Nature clouds the skies, and sometimes -- even then. We look forward to sharing our home with you.

Debbie Grover purchased this house in 2006

Why Debbie Grover chose Orcas Island

Several reasons, but it's the sunsets and privacy that we love, along with the unrestricted water view from the decks.

What makes this house unique

Peace and Quiet........and did we mention the sunsets? ;-)

Beautiful view, relaxing, great location

  • 5 of 5

The view from the balcony and the living room was stunning! Very good location - close to town, resort, and park. Well stocked with plenty of kitchen utensils, DVDs, outdoor propane grill, and wood for the fire pit. We enjoyed our stay on Orcas and will definitely be back!

The perfect island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three friends and we had the BEST time!! Our friends live in Bellingham and it was only a quick drive to the ferry and then to the house; we were there in no time! The house was absolutely stunning. It sits right on the sound and is so, so peaceful. When we arrived and stepped out of the car I was amazed at how serene and quiet it was. We spent our time in Orcas Island hiking and exploring Moran State Park, walking through adorable shops downtown, and just soaking up the spectacular view from the balcony. Our weekend was absolutely magical and we cannot wait for our next trip to the islands!

Great space in a secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed for three nights in July. The home is quite spacious and well equipped. The kitchen has every modern convenience you might need and the downstairs rec-room made us wish we had been able to bring more family or friends. The feature that made our decision to stay here - the view - was not disappointing. The views of the sound from the decks make for great relaxing time after spending a day visiting all the wonderful activities the island has to offer. The only thing that would have made for a more convenient stay would have been a shower in the second bathroom. But, as we were all family, the sharing was not an issue. Hope we are able to make it up here agin.

Epic vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a fantastic week at this house over the fourth of July weekend. It was truly magical! There was plenty of adventure and relaxing things to do on the island during the day. At night, we were all just captivated by the fantastic views from the upper deck. We spent so many evenings out there around the fire and it never got old! On the last night, I don't think anyone slept inside, instead just falling asleep under the stars!

The inside is fantastic too... spacious, well kept and perfect for a large group (we had eight adults at the peak). The decks and view, though, are what makes this property a perfect ten!

Relaxing trip to Orcas Island.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a peaceful and relaxing stay at this beautiful vacation home. From the decks, the views of the sound are spectacular. The kids enjoyed our evening ritual of roasting marshmallows over the fire pit and then watching a movie on the projector in the movie room. The house is well equipped with everything you might need. We brought our bikes along an biked around Mountain Lake in Moran State Park and also hopped on the ferry to Lopez Island for a bike riding day trip. There were no surprises as everything about the home was disclosed and spelled out on the website. All directions regarding use of the home and instructions upon leaving were clear. Thanks to the owners for a delightful stay in their beautiful property. Our only disappointment was that Favre, the "pet deer", never came to visit.
