PLEASE CHECK THE CALENDAR & RATES ON THIS SITE BEFORE EMAILING THE OWNERS - CALENDAR IS ALWAYS UPDATED, AS WELL AS THE RATES!

IF YOU CAN'T CLIMB STAIRS - THEN PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT THE HOUSE FOR YOU.

We invite you to come and enjoy our beautiful Orcas Island vacation home. Our home was completed in 2006 and is located at the end of a dead-end, private road. There is only 1 house next to ours, but totally private and separate, the other side of us is wilderness. The house is built on a STEEP rock hillside (so no 'yard') and offers unrestricted views of the water and the best sunsets EVER.

You CANNOT access the water from our home, but you are only about a 2 minute drive to several beaches and swimming areas. We are 1 mile from Rosario Marina, and we also recommend Cascade Park which has paddle boats, kids play station, etc. Please see the map that shows you where all these are from the home.

DOWNSTAIRS: All bedrooms are located downstairs, as are the 'one' full bath and bonus/theater room. Two of the three bdrms (the master and queen bdrm) have their own glass patio doors leading to the lower deck areas with the same incredible views! You will be able to view the water when you wake up, while lying in bed. (PLEASE NOTE: the queen bdrm with the patio door is broke and CANNOT be opened any more. This cannot be fixed). All rooms have their own private doors to the hallway. The third bdrm is part of the bonus room, as it is the entire length of the house. In this 'bonus room' , one end is the theater room, the middle is the bdrm portion with two regular queen size beds, and the other end is our version of a workout room with a weight bench, a couple of weights, one elliptical and 2 row machines. There is also a deep freeze for lots of food storage!! It is a huge room! Kids like to 'camp out' in this room. In this bonus room we also store two queen, high-rise aero beds w/electric pumps and two sleeping bags - if needed. Lots of blankets and pillows. There is only one pack-n-play crib (no highchair available - sorry)

The only full bathroom is downstairs and independent of all rooms (has full size tub w/shower).

UPSTAIRS: Living room, utilitity, kitchen, half bath, office. Upstairs living area also has a glass patio door with fantastic water views from the upper deck. There is a small office in which there are two small desks in case you bring your laptop. There is also a printer that can take your camera's memory card and print and/or download to your computer to email to your friends and family immediately. FULLY equiped kitchen. Full size washer/dryer (soap etc not included). We have a crab cage at the house for your use, so if you rent a boat - take it to go crabbing. We have a crab pot at the house to cook your freshly caught crab as well.

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING:
We are approximately 5.8 miles (10 mins) from downtown Eastsound (where all the shopping is located); 20 minutes from the ferry docks; and just around the corner from the most popular spots – Moran State Park (site seeing, hiking, picnicing, etc); Cascade Park (about a 2 minute drive from our house - swimming, water rentals, hiking, picnicing, etc.); Rosario Marina (1 mile from our house - great for watching boats and water planes land and take off, spa, restaurant, etc); and the ever popular restaurant Inn at Ship Bay.

So, if you enjoy wildlife, peace and quite with incredible scenery and sunsets, then you will truly enjoy our home. Guaranteed a great sunset every night, unless Mother Nature clouds the skies, and sometimes -- even then. We look forward to sharing our home with you.

FIRST-COME/FIRST-SERVE: We send out rental applications everyday for the same desired rental dates. So, to be fair, the first person to send theirs back will be in line for approval FIRST. Once approved, you will receive via email an approval letter to sign and return along with a credit card form. Pending your desired rental dates, you will be allowed only two business days to return both forms, in which your deposit and/or full payment will be charged on the card you provided. After two business days, the next rental application in line will receive its chance to grab the dates and rates. Rates are subject to change without notice.

RATES NOTICE: ALL RATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. Renters MUST be 25 yrs or older. The rates you see DO NOT include, the $200 refundable deposit, $180 non-refundable cleaning/inspection fee, taxes, one-time credit card processing fee, or any additional fees that may apply (i.e., more than 4 adults is usually $25 pp/per night.). Background checks will be made and upon approval, a down payment of 50% of the total rental cost will be required immediately to hold your dates AND at the current rates (or 100% pending how close your arrival date is at the time).

NO SMOKING ALLOWED anywhere on or around the premises!!! Also, we are not interested in trades, but thank you.
