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.

North Shore Reef, was the perfect setting for our family vacation. The house was amazing the views and sunsets are breathtaking. We had 12 people in the house and there was plenty of space for everyone. We were sad to go and looking forward to when we can come back.

Amazing location, views, backyard, and deck. This place was the perfect fit and the layout of the house was ideal for a big group. The views and serenity of the backyard/deck are unparalleled, with herons, sea lions, and bald eagles regularly making appearances.

Reviewer Comments:

We were three adult couples who stayed at North Shore Reef #238 in early October. The property is incredibly comfortable and well equipped in a beautiful location. It was even better than pictured in the rental literature. We had plenty of room to spend time together or separately, watch DVDs, work a jigsaw puzzle on the breakfast table while eating our meals in the dining room. It's a really fine property which I would recommend to anyone.

Reviewer Comments:

The home was perfect for this group of 11 women. The description accurately noted the location and layout and amenities. It was clean, and had only minor maintenance issues, such as a step that needed securing. We had a WIFI outage and were able to contact someone, although we handled it ourselves. It would have have been helpful to know where the equipment for WIFI was to reset it. I would definitely recommend this property to others. The location was perfect, with water front and nice views. We hiked Mt Constitution and on the South End of Island. Olga Cafe had great food. The ferry service was efficient.

Reviewer Comments:

Lovely house, easily fit 10 people in it. Amazing view of sunsets from the comfortable deck. Saw a family of sea otters every night. Beach access was great. The house seemed to have everything thought of, was a pleasure to cook and grill there. Easy bike to town along a separated path.
