About Kimberly Fackrell
My husband and I have been coming to Orcas Island for over 25 years. We have always dreamed of having a house on the Island and spending more time exploring all there is to see. We love the hiking, kayaking, food and friendly people! The stars finally aligned for us and we found this lovely house. Now, we get to visit as often as we want and we can share our home with our guests.
Kimberly Fackrell purchased this House in 2017
Why Kimberly Fackrell chose Eastsound
We love the location of the North Beach Outlook. We can walk to North Beach Public Access, Island Hoppin' Brewery or into town. There is a relatively flat walking path all the way into Eastsound. With Eastsound being the center of the Island, we have a short drive to our favorite places like Moran State Park, Doe Bay, Deer Harbor, the San Juan Open Spaces hikes and a quick drive to the ferry landing. We also love the view from the house. Sunsets have been fantastic! We can see a couple of Islands from the great room and master bedroom. We watch deer, birds, boats, ships and airplanes go by. It is peaceful and relaxing.
What makes this House unique
The sunsets and star gazing from the cottage can be spectacular. There is very little light pollution (compared to dity living). On rainy days, you can watch the weather roll in and when the sun peeks out again, we often get rainbows.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Perfect for the 4th!
Perfect house and location just out of Eastsound (about a mile and a half if you like walking like we do). The house was wonderful for our family and we had a great time. Comfy beds, good stock of supplies/gear, awesome laundry room and an amazing deck with views of all the deer! And and gobblers for the wine that was consumed out on the deck- totally magical place to read, relax and enjoy the sunset. Also perfect for the 4th of July- close to town for the fireworks show but almost no one setting them off in the neighborhood is a win in my book. Check in was easy and Kimberly was a great host! Already scheming for our next trip out.
Cozy home with great views
Plenty of room & great common spaces to enjoy the beautiful view.
Great location & easy communication with owner. Thank you we had a great visit.
Great property on Orcas
We had a great time at Kim's property on Orcas island. The property has great views and amenities. I would recommend this property and come back and stay there again.
You will love this outlook tower!
The North Beach Outlook is a gorgeous place to stay. The house is 20 years old, but looks like it was wrapped in bubble wrap and never used until Kim opened it up - all the finishes, walls, etc are in perfect condition. This is a beautiful custom built house, designed for the site.
The property has easy parking. The yard has lovely paths and plantings, but you will tend to spend most of your time upstairs on the balcony.
The entry floor is the practical floor. You stop just inside the door, take off your street shoes, and continue in socks (we recommend packing slippers along). The entry floor has two good sized bedrooms, one with twin beds, the other with a queen. A large laundry/mud room, and a full bathroom with tub.
The middle floor shows off the beauty of the construction and the scenery. 10ft high beamed ceilings, pristine wood floors, and a huge wall of windows out to the view. You are drawn out to the huge balcony (it is over the carport). A comfortable and vibrant living room area allows you to soak in the view. The spacious dining area and open concept kitchen allow great family interaction. The kitchen is well stocked with all cooking utensils and gadgets, including delicious coffee.
The upper level is the master suite, and takes up a whole top floor. High cathedral ceilings with exposed cross beams. It also has a large window wall to the view, with handy top down blinds for privacy. The suite includes a spacious 3/4 bath.
The entire house is very clean, in excellent condition, and Kim has thought of all the details to make your stay comfortable. The WIFI is excellent.
And just in case, this beautiful outlook tower is fortified with a whole house generator. Just as I was preparing to take a shower the lights flickered. And immediately the backyard generator started up. During a power outage I was able to have lights, heat, lots of hot water, and then use a hair dryer. Wow.
The quiet neighbors are mostly locals. And every night at dusk we were treated to more locals - 6-8 deer could be seen across the street. The neighbor feeds them grains every evening, and you can watch them from the balcony.
The location is excellent. 4 blocks to a small public beach.
A 5 minute drive straight into downtown for shopping, restaurants, etc.
We highly recommend Roses for a European style bakery, deli, and cafe.
The North Beach Outlook is a warm, relaxing place to stay, and centrally located.
Michelle, thank you for taking the time to write this review! Your description of the property is so eloquent.
All of our neighbors are full time locals in our eclectic neighborhood. Artists, working folk, retirees and black tail deer.
I hope you and your family can visit again. I appreciate that you took care of our house as if it were your own.
Beautiful, clean, convenient. Kimberly was great to work with.
Loved it would stay again for sure.
We loved our getaway.
Very nice digs. We enjoyed oir stay. It’s central to everything we needed in Eastsound.
The San Juan Islands are a world wide destination and for good reason. These are some of the most beautiful, pristine islands in the world. Orcas Island has some of the best hiking and activities with a laid back vibe and happy people. Moran State Park is the largest state park in Washington State with over 30 miles of hiking and biking trails. Come for a visit!
