About the Property
No longer renting for the season
Newer northwest craftsmen home is charming and spacious. An eastward view from the front porch is of the neighboring wooded area. Located in the heart of Eastsound for an easy stroll to shops, restaurants, and parks.
There is a scenic walking path that winds along the peaceful alder grove where you will find a covered shelter for picnics and campfire use. The pathway continues on to provide access to Eastsound Village and the public Waterfront Park. Enjoy the park for picnics, beach combing, kayaking, or meander out to Indian Island via the low tide exposed land bridge.
A Perfect Spot for Wedding Party Guests to Stay: Orcas Island is a wedding mecca during the busy summer months in fact the San Juan Islands are considered one of the Top Destination Wedding Venues in America. This home is perfect to rent for the many family and friends who will need accommodations. Compare to local hotels and you will find the overall price to be more than competitive. When you have extra time attend a Sunday Night Concert in Eastsound Park, go to the Episcopal Church for the Wednesday Brown Bag Lunch Concert, or in late August attend the famous Chamber Music Festival.
Alder Bungalow is perfect for:
* Wedding Guests
* Family Reunions
* Spiritual Retreats
* All Girls Weekend
* Writer’s Workshop Participants
* Triathlon/Marathon Housing
* Romantic Getaways
* Adventure Retreats
* and more!
All the Comforts of Home: Why not rent a fully equipped house? Have the option of making meals or foraging for a late night snack. Morning coffee is right at your fingertips, additionally, you can make an entire pot rather than two cups at a time. Plenty of room for family to gather in the open kitchen, dining, living areas. Go ahead, relax, take a candlelit bath in the upstairs claw foot tub. All beds are very comfortable memory foam mattresses.

****Most agency vacation rentals do not have these items on hand and expect you to purchase them during your stay. Imagine showing up late on a Friday night and having NO toilet paper. Ugh!
It's hard to find another vacation home rental on Orcas Island that matches Alder Bungalow's value!

For the upcoming season and potentially the following summer we will be sharing our home rather than renting out the entire place. We've been doing this for six years through a popular site that starts with Air and ends with BnB. You can check us out there and save a lot of the fees that are now assessed by VRBO and HomeAway. Or contact us through this site. So, if you are a couple, a group of 4 four, or even a group of 6 we can accommodate you in our three spare bedrooms. NOTE: larger groups 4-6 have to share bathrooms. We can only ONE car for the entire group.
Owner's cancellation policy:
50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.

About the owner: Kari and Jim love living and working on Orcas Island. Everyday we are amazed we were lucky enough to have landed in such a fantastic, beautiful, and giving community. In 2009, we were able to purchase a home for our family and future retirement plans. We reside in this home during the school year and move to our other property during the summer months. This house is now available for rent during the late spring, summer, and early fall.
Why the Owner Chose Eastsound, WA, USA:
Our home is in a perfect location on the island because it is an easy walk to everything in town. The home is modern, cute, and comfortable and will suit occupants from 2 persons up to 9.
