Bright, sunny, southern exposure with public dock and long, sandy beach!
Enjoy unobstructed views down Rosario Strait, watch passing ferries, seals and otters playing just off the huge front deck! Eat dinner outside and enjoy a drink under the stars in the wood-fired hot tub. There is a kayak rental shop (Orcas Island Kayaks) 200 yards away for exploring the bay or around the point to Obstruction Pass State Park. If kayaking is too much effort it's just a few steps to stroll along the flat, sandy beach. The huge, grassy lawn is perfect for croquet, frisbee, tossing the ball or letting the kids run around. Given the San Juans enjoy an average of 247 sunny days a year, relaxing in the sun is always a good option. Our Beachhouse is a comfortable, somewhat kitschy, four-bedroom, two-bath home that sleeps 8, plus a full-size crib. Our place comes fully equipped with firewood, all linens, kitchen utensils and basic cooking ingredients. This is our special, family retreat, but we make it available to others on a limited basis.
Our home includes all amenities and appliances needed plus a full size laundry room. Other features:
- wood-fired hot tub on the deck overlooking the water
- charcoal and gas BBQs
- Moran State Park for swimming (Cascade Lake) and hiking are a few miles away
- Obstruction Pass State Park is one mile away with excellent hiking and tide-pool exploring
- Doe Bay Resort for soaking tubs and a delicious restaurant
- Rosario Resort for fine dining and cocktails
- Buck Bay Shellfish Farm for the freshest seafood around

I honestly couldn't ask for anything more in a house on Orcas. The location was incredible - a close drive to Moran State Park and Doe Bay but not too far from Eastsound and the property was stunning.
It had everything that we could've asked for, the deck was fantastic, the rooms were great, the washer and dryer were handy, etc. I could go on and on. Not to mention the wood-heated hot tub which was awesome.
I couldn't have had a better weekend here and hope to return someday. Thanks Onie!
We enjoyed a fantastic week at this spot. Eagles, heron, otters, seals, tide pools during the day and bioluminescence at night. Very comfortable house, well outfitted. Outdoor space was ideal. Both adults and kids delighted with accommodations. Onie was very responsive. We hope to return!
