Orcas Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

BEST FAMILY VACATION HOME ON ORCAS ISLAND

Looking for Orcas Island beachfront, spectacular views, 4+ bedrooms, 3+ baths, and a location within walking distance of town? Not many vacation homes meet this criteria, but North Shore Reef offers all these attributes and more. This spacious and attractive home is simply the perfect choice for family vacations and couples traveling together.

The property is conveniently located only one mile north of Eastsound Village, offering an easy walk to shops and restaurants via a public pathway. When you open the front door, a startling vista of sky, sea, and mountains will greet you through the large picture windows on the waterside of the home. Straight ahead, there is a view of Sucia Island and, in the distance, the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Cascade range can be seen rising above neighboring islands. When the tide is high you may see whales and dolphins as they pass by in the deep water channel, and when the tide is low, the sandy offshore reef emerges from the sea to attract a variety of marine life, including birds, eagles, and otters.

The 3200 square foot residence is designed for casual and comfortable living. The entry, living room, and dining room are oriented toward the waterfront as is the terrace, where you will lounge, BBQ , dine alfresco, and bask in glorious sunsets. A partially fenced lawn with fire pit is on the western side of the property. From the bluff, a stairway connects to the pebble beach where the elements of nature can be appreciated at the shoreline.

Indoors, there is plenty of space for the entire group to cook, dine, and enjoy their time together. Meal preparation takes place in a large, well-stocked kitchen that features contemporary appliances, a work island, and a breakfast nook. The dining room offers seating around an expandable table and you will find a bedroom with a king bed just down the hall on the main level. Adjacent to this master bedroom is a bathroom with shower as well as an office/den equipped with a convertible sofa that is suitable for a child or extra guest. For flexibility, there is a door that enables you to enclose these three rooms into a private suite. A laundry room with extra toilet and sink are also located just off the kitchen on the main level.

Upstairs, overlooking the living room, is a loft with a sectional sofa and TV for watching television or movies. The loft separates two upper bedroom wings. One wing contains a bathroom with tub/shower and bedroom large enough to contain both a queen sized bed and twin/trundle. The additional two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the loft and share a third bathroom with tub/shower. The larger bedroom also contains both a queen sized bed plus a twin/trundle; the smaller offers a queen size bed.

Please note that when more than 10 guests are accepted, an additional fee of $50 per guest per night will apply. We’re sorry that the fireplace is not available for guest use. A small, well-behaved dog will be considered, subject to additional fees and the owner’s specific approval.

Reviewer Comments:

Great rental property. Excellent location on Orcas Island. Convenient to Eastsound for restaurants, shops, etc., but far enough away for peaceful days and sunsets. The home is well appointed and the kitchen has about every cooking tool known to mankind. We experienced no significant problems with the property other than some inconsiderate renters before us who left the property late and delayed our time of getting into the home. We will come again.

Reviewer Comments:

The home was perfect for a family reunion consisting of 6 adults. It was spacious, clean and had plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans for our use. It was nice that there was a bathroom for each of the three couples, too. It was great that there were basic supplies like paper towels, toilet tissue, detergent and a clean sponge upon arrival. All the beds were comfortable. And we all enjoyed playing Taboo during our stay. Proximity to Eastsound was convenient for walking, also. The one downside was that our stay was only 4 nights! Suggestions to owner: It would be helpful if there were more hooks or towel bars in the master bath and additional hand and bath towels. And it would have been nice to know exactly what land masses we could see from the living room and deck - perhaps a hand drawn map with the identifying names. Thank you for sharing your home.

This was a family get-together in May. The size of the house was perfect for 8 of us. The conditional & cleanliness of the house was very good. We loved the location & being right on the water. Everyone loved it & had a comfortable & relaxing time. The kitchen was very well equipped, & large enough for several people to move around. If I came back with the same size group, I would definitely stay there again & would recommend it to my friends.

We loved our stay at #238! We spotted a family of otters to the north of the house one evening and loved watching them through the "scope" as they ate fish on the shoreline. The kitchen is amazing with everything we needed to prepare meals for our family reunion. We loved walking and biking to Eastsound and hiking in Moran State Park and Turtleback. Wonderful home for our celebration week!

The location was perfect. Enjoyed sitting on the deck with the view. Very roomy, never felt crowded with 4 couples. Orcas island has so much to do, we kept busy. Would go back again!

The view and beach access were excellent. The layout of the house was perfect for our family of 8. Large kitchen was a bonus. Great family times on the beach, by the fire pit or just enjoying the view from the deck. Many adventures on Orcas Island including great hiking and kayaking. We will be back!
