About Lisa Strauss - Headland House

My husband and I live on Orcas island and manage our own vacation homes so this enables us to respond to our guests needs quickly. You will find that we provide over the top amenities that are not typically found in most vacation homes.

Lisa Strauss - Headland House purchased this house in 2007

Why Lisa Strauss - Headland House chose Orcas Island

We have owned Timber Lodge another vacation rental on Orcas Island for a number of years and found that everyone that visited Orcas Island had wonderful things to say about it and it has fast become our most popular vacation property in our portfolio. When we made the decision to purchase a second vacation home we had seriously considered buying a property on San Juan Island but Orcas Island felt more comfortable especially since we had our entire infrastructure already in place. We considered a waterfront home but the views were actually more spectacular from a distance as Headland House sits on a point. The main factor was all that Headland House really needed was some interior design touches to make it a truly special home. The water views and eight acres of privacy makes Headland House is one of the best attributes along with having a totally separate guest house that has the same quality construction as the main house. The Guest house is a miniature version of the main house. The architect created the most gorgeous skylight in the kitchen that is actually more beautiful than the one in the main house. I would say the decking and patio areas attached to every bedroom is another super nice feature and best yet we are walking distance to our own private beach and have dock privileges. and everyone loves the projection TV in the great room!

What makes this house unique

This charming Guest house had spectacular marine views and is perfect for a quick getaway to the islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything about Lisa's house was welcoming. The furnishings were beautiful, the amenities everything we needed, and the popcorn awaiting us was a special touch. We loved everything about our experience and are looking forward to returning to the amazing views and the quiet. Thank you, Lisa for making our stay on Orcas Island a holiday to remember.
