Eastsound house description

Northern Lights is a northwest contemporary home built on a knoll in the Raccoon Point area on the north side of Orcas Island. It's named 'Northern Lights, because on a clear night you can see the twinkling lights of Vancouver BC - and possibly even a rare aurora borrealis when the conditions are right! But during the day, you'll always see a beautiful panorama of blue water, neighboring islands, and passing boats. There's also a community beach within a 1/2 mile that guests may visit.

It's a home focused toward the view, with an comfortable open floor plan that encourages everyone to chat while meals are being prepared. A patio runs along the view side of the home, so it's also pleasant to dine outside on a warm summer night while the sun goes down and then come indoors to play games at the dining table! The home has been recently updated with stylish furnishings, finishes, and fixtures that include a new electric range with ceramic cooktop, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave.

The master bedroom is off the living room, with sliding doors that provide access to the front patio. In this bedroom, there's a queen size bed, and an en-suite bathroom with a tub. The second bedroom, also on the main level, has a double bed and connects to a second bathroom with stall shower. (This bathroom also opens to a hallway.)

Upstairs is an open loft with a television (this is for movies only) and a futon that can provide a sleeping area for additional guests. (Note also that there is a wired DSL connection as WIFI is not currently available in this part of the Island. )

Northern Lights is conveniently located within a ten minute drive of the Village of Eastsound where there are plenty of good shops, stores, and restaurants.

This home is cared for by a local rental manager and their staff is on call if you need help. They handle all reservations and payment details as well.

                My husband and I just returned from a week in the San Juan Islands. Our first three nights were spent on Orcas Island. Although it was rainy for most of the three days we were here, it was beautiful, tranquil and relaxing. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay while on Orcas. If you want seclusion and relaxation, this is the place! The night before our departure, it cleared enough to see the beautiful views atop Mount Constitution, which is an absolute must do. Also, the morning we are to leave, we were awoken to a beautiful sunrise...it was absolutely spectacular. We hadn't pulled the blinds the night before on account of all the overcast condition, and we are so glad we were able to view the sunrise. The vacation home was just wonderful. What we liked about the rental is WiFi availability to do research on what to do on the island. The neighbor 's home was far enough away that we felt secluded. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals at the rental. The views were spectacular. The ambiance and tranquility was perfect. Something to note: you will want all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive to get up the driveway. We are glad that we brought our 4x4 truck.

                Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, sightseeing.

                Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Enjoyed our stay, the house was lovely with a great view and location. Two things keep this from being a 4 to 5 star review. Overall the house was clean except it was dusty. At these prices ( especially with a $150.00 cleaning fee) I'd like the house to be very clean and tidy. Secondly, we were disappointed with the condition of the kitchen. Poorly stocked with basics and stove and dishwasher were low quality equipment. If we had liked the kitchen, again I'd say 4 to 5 star review.

                We so enjoyed our stay in this home - we've been coming to Orcas for 25 years and have always stayed in the Buckhorn area, which is so convenient to Eastsound. This home is really well layed out, with an open floor plan that takes full advantage of the gorgeous view of the sound, and is very comfortable to be in as well.Especially nice was the chaise lounge sofa (sp?) next to the window that everyone took turns relaxing in. The kitchen was comfortable and well equipped. The master bath was light and lovely - and has a wonderful soaking tub, but no shower...which was a little inconvenient but workable. The only difficulty we found was the driveway - which was fairly steep, and had been heavily graveled at the bottom which made it very difficult to get up. Overall, we thought it was a wonderful house - and would definitely stay there again in the future. Original review posted on management company website, Vacation Doorways.

                Northern Lights was one of the loveliest vacation rentals I've ever experienced. Clean, light, private, fantastic views, comfortable accommodations, great location. It so peaceful there. We could read on the sofa while looking out the big picture window for eagles or whales. The patio out front was ideal for doing the same and would have been for meals if it had been warmer. My kids loved it too. A few more games (even cards) might be good if it will be rented to families. We wished we could have stayed longer and hope to return before too long.

                This home was ideal for my family of four! We absolutely loved the location, hidden away on the side of the mountain with breathtaking views of the water. I'll always remember the mornings sipping coffee on the patio, enjoying the sunshine, and listening to the waves. The house had everything we needed, particularly the fully stocked kitchen. I loved the local art that was sprinkled throughout the home. If we are lucky enough to go back to the San Juan Islands, we'll look to stay at Northern Lights first! I've already recommended it to friends. Original review on management company website, Vacation Doorways.

                The pictures don't do it justice. Great house with a great view. Very convenient to shopping, yet secluded enough to feel like a real island vacation. I would definitely rent here again! Original review on management company website, Vacation Doorways.

                Wonderful house! clean, organized, great floor plan for a group of people. Only one suggestion: there is a rock wall with a significant drop off in front of the house. I would like to see some sort of fence to make it more kid/adults after a few beverages, friendly. Otherwise we loved the house! Orignal review on management company website, Vacation Doorways.
