About David Hyde

We love Orcas

David Hyde purchased this house in 2013

Why David Hyde chose Eastsound

We fell in love with Orcas Island the first time we visited

What makes this house unique

This house gives you the best of both worlds: the natural beauty of Orcas Island and a secluded feel, but also convenient and close to everything on the island including Eastsound and Moran State park.

Magical views and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several times in this beautiful retreat and absolutely love our time spent there. The location is amazing, right on the water with a great beach, and the place feels very private and isolated from the neighboring houses. The views from the deck, living/dining room and two of the bedrooms cannot be beat. Walking through the door we felt surrounded by the water and mountains and instantly relaxed.

The house itself is a comfortable and cozy summer cottage. It is not super fancy but everything you need is provided with a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and linens and plenty of towels. The home can easily accommodate two families and sleeps 8 people very comfortably. Two bedrooms have gorgeous water views and I loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves hitting the beach. The hot tub overlooking the Sound is an additional lovely perk.

Although the house feels incredibly private, it is an easy 5 minute walk into East Sound. (About 1 minute of that walk is along a busy road so you should be careful with young kids) We loved walking to the Brown Bear bakery for coffee and treats in the morning and spent lots of time in the local book store.

The hosts were friendly and accommodating and very responsive. I could tell that they wanted us to enjoy their home as much as they do. I highly recommend this home as home base to enjoy all the magic that Orcas Island offers.

Wonderful home in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely waterfront vacation home. The property is quiet and secluded with the convenience of being a couple minutes from town. We loved the open floor plan centered around the amazing view. The hot tub was a perfect spot to relax and take in the view. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and the heated towel rack and floors in the basement bathroom were an added bonus. Beds were comfortable and there were several games and puzzles to enjoy. I will suggest to make sure to bring sturdy waterproof sandals and be cautious on the trip down to the beach, the deck is a bit rough and the steps leading to the beach are caving making them somewhat treacherous. The beach is very rocky as is typical all over the island, but we found plenty of sea stars hanging out there. My kids loved it!

Beautiful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend to anyone! Rented the house with a few girlfriends for the weekend. There was a pretty bad windstorm and the giant windows overlooking the water made it fun to watch. The house was very clean and had an overall welcoming feel! Would stay here again :)

Fantastic location and home

  • 5 of 5

Love this place. The view is better than the pictures. The kitchen has everything. Downstairs seem updated much more recently so a bit nicer than the upstairs. There's a nice path from the hot tub down to the beach. Beach is rocky with lots of driftwood. Didn’t want to leave and we will be back.

Great place to stay in Eastsound

  • 3 of 5

The house is beautiful, homey and well stocked. Our family liked it. Location is walkable to the shops and restaurants.

Why 3-stars? We paid $250 for cleaning, knew it upfront and were OK with it. But $250 cleaning charge does not include trash! We had to haul the trash ourselves to the dump. Beware that dump does open till 10 am and you have to checkout by 10. You pack up your family, luggage and trash at the same time. Hope this is a fair review.

Great location & view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our three night stay at this home. The location was perfect - about a 5 minute walk from the great shops and restaurants in Eastsound. The view is simply amazing as you relax on the deck. As others have said, use caution as you walk down to the beach, but it doesn't take away from this beautiful home. We'll be back!
