Recently voted one of the world’s most exciting ferry rides your trip to the San Juan Islands promises beautiful views of mountains, forests and a close connection to the ocean. Glimpses of Orca Whales, Harbor Seals, Porpoises, and Sea Lions are not uncommon. Moderate temperatures make the islands ideal for all kinds of activities such as boating, fishing, kayaking and hiking. There’s no place more beautiful for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the deck of our beautiful home located in the VERY POPULAR Rosario area. Just 1.5 miles finds you at the entrance to Moran State Park with 5 lakes, hiking trails and Mt. Constitution. 2 miles in the other direction and you are at the beach front at Rosario Resort.

The open floor plan, skylights, and southern exposure make this very comfortable and modern home light and airy.

The large master suite boasts a jetted tub and private access to the west facing deck. Step out on the deck and enjoy your morning coffee. With a separate full bath and queen bed in the guest room, this home is perfect for two couples. But a new sleeping sofa in the living room will provide for a larger group.

On your visit to our home on BEAUTIFUL ORCAS ISLAND you can enjoy Directv on our two new High Definition TV's. We also have a well stocked game closet and selection of DVDs as well as an I-Pod Dock for your listening pleasure. High Speed Internet with a WiFi router makes it possible for our guests to access the internet from the comfort of our home or even from the large relaxing deck.

PET FRIENDLY!! Even your family pet will feel welcome! The deck staircase leads to a fenced in area for your dog to have some off leash freedom. Rosario Heights is open to visits for one or two dogs.

With our home located on a quiet private dead end road, this rural area and close proximity to the park often has visits from local deer.

Walk out the front door and in half a mile is the trail that circles Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Rosario Heights is a wonderful place for hikers to hang their hats.

Nearby several trail heads are marked. Some of the park's trails are available to cyclists.

Enjoy a swimming beach not 2 miles away.

You can also hike or drive down the hill to Rosario Resort to find a waterfront beach near Cascade Marina, again not 2 miles from Rosario Heights.

Enjoy dining at the Mansion Restaurant at Rosario. In addition to this world class restaurant, there is an incredible lounge with a separate dining menu. Children are permitted in the lounge but not at the bar itself.

In nearby Eastsound there are wonderful places to enjoy Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Very nicely appointed home

  • 5 of 5

The property is somewhat isolated but only about a 20 minute drive to East Sound Village, the only town of any size on the island. The house is luxurious with a spectacular view. Generally, it is well supplied. A great place to come home to after a long hike.

Beautiful home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend on Orcas. The owner was very accommodating and understanding about our corgi's needs after losing her furry brother one month prior to our visit. The location was great for visiting Moran State Park and spending time in Eastsound. The views off the back deck were fantastic, and we spent time there every evening of our stay. We look forward to our next weekend getaway here!

Great property, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our two teenagers, rented this property for a week. The house was VERY clean upon on arrival. Although we were aware that animals were allowed, we did not find any animal hair during our stay. (We did not bring animals). The wood floor was very clean, and there NO funky smells.

We enjoyed having a master suit with our own bathroom while the girls shared the other bathroom. Although the girls could have shared the queen bed in the second bedroom, one opted to use the pullout couch. That was a nice option to have. Additionally, the house was adequately stocked with clean linens and towels.

This property worked very well for our needs. We shopped at the local grocery store and made most of our own meals. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the basics you'd need to make simple meals. The washer and dryer came in very handy, too.

We loved the location of this property--in a wooded area but with a water view. You will LOVE sitting on the deck with that view! That feature had sold us, and it did not disappoint.

We loved how the home was remote enough to feel like we weren't at a tourist trap but close enough to Eastsound that we didn't feel isolated from civilization. The locals in town were so pleasant and helpful, giving suggestions about how to go about things.

The home's location is perfect for hikers. We explored about five trails, and the entrance to Moran State Park is super close.

Rick was fabulous to work with through his quick responses by email and phone. He accommodated a slight modification to the contract when our plans changed slightly. This was our first experience renting a home online, and we were a little nervous about it. Rick made the experience a good one, and we would not hesitate to recommend him and his property to our friends and family. We would rent again--in a heartbeat!

Charming Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place to stay on Orcas Island. The house has breathtaking views, great location and everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. We barely used the kitchen, but it was stocked with EVERYTHING! I've never seen a rental home with that much stuff in the kitchen. With a nice BBQ and outdoor table on the deck you don't need anything else. Speaking of food, this house is centrally located to the best places to eat. Quick, easy drives (or nice bike rides) to Inn at Ship Bay, Doe Bay Cafe, Rosario Mansion, and Roses Cafe. The house is sandwiched between Moran State Park and Rosario Resort--does it get any better than that?!? The ultimate bonus was being able to bring our beagle Buster. He's a well seasoned traveler and has particular taste for a dog, ha ha! The fully fenced yard and deck, combined with all the deer and bunnies, made him a very happy guest. Only suggestion I have is put a king size bed in the master bedroom. My partner and I are really tall and haven't slept in a queen size bed in ages. That was the only uncomfortable part of our stay. Other than that we had an amazing getaway in the peace, tranquility, beauty and mindblowing food scene of Orcas. Thank you Rick & Alexandra for sharing your lovely home with us! We'll be back!

Comfortable home on a quiet street with wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 6 day stay at this fabulous home. It is located near Rosario on Orcas Island and is a short drive to Moran State Park with a variety of hiking trails to suit all tastes. The home is well maintained (obviously loved by it's owners) and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is in a quiet neighborhood and has a lovely view of the sound. The local deer are abundant and seem comfortable with people. Two were there to greet us on our arrival.

Pets are allowed and there is a fenced area on the side of the home for them to go outside.

The master bedroom is spacious with a comfortable bed, plenty of dresser storage and a walk in closet. The attached bathroom has a jacuzzi tub and separate shower.

Other sleeping options are the second bedroom (mattress not as comfortable) and a pull out sofa in the living room (comfortable) which gives you a spectacular morning view.

We loved our stay and are so grateful to the owners for sharing it with us!!
