About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Main Floor Living and Just a Half Mile to Town

This delightful new home located in Eastsound on Orcas Island is coming up on it's third-year anniversary. Modern, clean and full of light, it features main floor living with the master bedroom (king-size bed) and bath on the same floor as the living room, dining room and kitchen. It's just two steps up to the front porch from the level driveway. On the lower floor you'll find a TV room, with a queen-size sleeper sofa, a second bedroom with two twin beds a comfy window seat plus a full bath. There's even two fold-up futons for smaller guests that you might want sleeping near by. The separation from the main floor to the lower level is very accommodating for people who want a little privacy from other guests. Or just some quiet time to themselves. All rooms have a water view, including the bathroom if you leave the door open. :-)

About Tina Grace

My son Reed and I built this home in 2013/2014. It's a labor of love and a dream come true for me. A long time visitor to the island since 1998 when I was married at Rosario Resort. After visiting several times a year since then I got an opportunity to own a little place of our own here on this beautiful island.

I wanted it to feel like a getaway and be completely different from our home in Bellingham, hence the modern design and bright colors. It's fun and always puts a smile on my face. I also wanted to capture the amazing view and have a whole wall of windows facing south to the inlet of Eastsound. Having all the window focused on just one wall also provides an amazing amount of privacy. You can't help but stare out the window where you can see eagles soaring and the occasional small plane flying into town.

Tina Grace purchased this house in 2014

Wonderful space to relax in

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home in a fabulous location with a superb host. The views are amazing, and they come with a variety of birds and birdsong. You can walk to Eastsound in just a few minutes (but be sure to pack extra lung capacity for the walk back up the hill), and the central location is great for driving to any other location on the island. Access to Moran State Park is very convenient, and be sure to take advantage of this! If nothing else, drive up to the top of Mt. Constitution to get the only view on the island better than the one you have from your living room and deck at The Lookout. The layout of the home is excellent for lounging and for having a few friends over for a meal. The kitchen is well designed and well stocked. This is a place that wants you to settle in, enjoy it, and feel at home. Also, Tina is a great host, with excellent practical tips and of course great suggestions for local restaurants. If you like beer, don't miss the Island Hoppin' Brewery, which is a great example of the small edge-of-town breweries that have popped up all over the country.

A modern escape with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

An exceptional HomeAway experience begins with prompt and professional communication from the owner. We knew this one with shaping up to be a winner right from the start as Tina engaged with us on all matters involving the property and nearby activities. The property itself is truly spectacular. It is hard to put into words the first impression one gets when entering through the front door and making the right turn to look out of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. As much as we looked forward to exploring Orcas Island, we were equally excited to return to the home knowing that the views of the water would be waiting. The house is new, modern and clean and Tina has everything you could imagine arranged and organized in her "house book". The kitchen contains new stainless appliances and is very easy to work in. There is a Keurig machine so remember to bring your K-Cups! The house is quiet and feels tucked away on the hillside, though just a short walk down the private drive gets you to Main St. where you can find shopping and food. A first-class property with a first-class owner communication experience. Without question one of our best HomeAway stays.

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time here! The home is truly in the most fantastic location. From the moment we walked in, we spent the entire weekend plotting how we could pool our resources and try to buy this home! What a gem! Thank you, Tina, for opening your beautiful home to us. We can't wait to return!

Remarkable World-Class View, Modern Well-Considered Design, 5 Minutes from town (sort of)

  • 5 of 5

The pictures (and other reviews) of The Lookout are accurate. Read them. The view IS unparalleled. The place is one of the most well-considered VRBOs that we have ever seen. Every possible circumstance has been considered and planned for. The house is on the top of a ridge that faces Eastsound but you cannot see the town at all from up here. To go to town you descend the hill - it only takes about 4 -5 minutes to get there - perhaps less but you cannot hear the town at all nor can you see any trace of it from your perch. A few hints: We had a great meal at A New Leaf and at The Mansion and several good meals at Brown Bear Baking. Brown Bear Baking is VERY POPULAR. Go there early if you plan to buy a loaf of bread. They sell out right away. You need to check opening hours here of all the businesses - especially the restaurants. Most close far earlier than you'd expect. Or are not open on weekends, etc. If you find a place that interests you, immediately find their hours and plan accordingly. Don't miss the music program at The Mansion - they have an entire room filled with a huge, vintage pipe organ. Do not miss an opportunity to hear it being played. While all the hikes have something to recommend them we found the best to be Turtleback. Don't miss it.
