I found Orcas Island, WA. in 1990. I had never been to Washington State, let alone the San Juan Islands. I knew I had found home within 15 minutes of driving off the ferry. This place feeds my artistic spirit and creative side. I have worked toward my goal of buying property on Orcas Island and building my own place since then. I started building in 2003. I was my own General Manager of this project. The professionals put in the parts that are controlled by building requirements to met code, like power, water, framing the house, etc. After that is when the hands-on part of the job was all mine. I put in all the slate flooring, wood trim, siding, painting, cupboards, sinks, tubs, slate shower hall, stone patio, etc. I could write a book with all that took place. The house turned out lovely if I do say so myself, and you can't beat the views. I have not had one negative piece of feedback about the house since I started renting it. I want you to enjoy this piece of paradise as much as I do. Thank you for your interest. Donna Delong Delongview

Why Owner chose Eastsound
This Island offered the clean air and lush green landscape that has always been important to my comfort in a place. I need tall trees, natural settings, wild animals and birds as part of my daily life. The ocean being near-by and viewable daily, around nearly every corner I turn or hill I drive over, is a blessing I don't take for-granted. The views of the awesome mountains were a plus, and now I can't think of life without them to gaze at. The fact that there are no traffic jambs or stop lights have to be listed as a plus too.
What makes this House unique
The peace and serenity you feel sitting on the patio with the sight of the Cascade Mountains and the Georgia Strait right there. Flowers blooming all around and birds to watch as their songs fill the air. The quiet of living on a 3 acre piece of paradise, on a private road, with no through traffic or city noises. Not another house in sight. If the weather is overcast or if it has snowed and all is covered, it still feels bright in the Great Room, due to the huge ski-lite over the peak of the roof. The heated slate floors with rich, bold colors feel warm to my bare feet in the winter, and cool when I take feet out of my hot shoes in the summer. So many things like this are what makes my home special to me, and to you too if you want.

Excellent property, view and amenities!
Donna has a very well-equipped house with an outstanding view. She’s a great host! We couldn’t have asked for better weather! We hope to be back!
Beautiful property that is well furnished
We had a blast on the Islands and this property was a great place to stay. Beautiful views with a great deck. We had everything we needed. Thanks much.
Comfortable house near East Sound
The king bed was very comfortable and the windows had dark curtains for sleeping in. I enjoyed the bath tub. The other bedroom has a comfortable bed but white curtains so you can't sleep in.
I have never had a complaint about the brightness in the second bedroom.
Some guests have slept with the curtains open so they could wake up to the view. I guess most people travel with a sleeping mask if they like to sleep in. I know I do. Guests may pick up a sleeping mask at one of our stores.
Beautiful spot on a beautiful island. There is nothing you could want in this house that isn't already there. Clean, comfortable and gorgeous. We loved it!
Long Weekend Getaway
Donna’s property is quiet and secluded but still very close to Eastsound. The house was immaculate and the kitchen well stocked. We were there for a long weekend and her place served as a great base camp from which to explore Orcas Island.
Lovely home with a lovely view
Very comfortable house with well-equipped kitchen.
