About the property

A Clean And Fun Vacation Rental Near Town, Shopping, Beaches And State Parks

Come explore all that Orcas Island has to offer - and then relax in a clean, comfortable and affordable property at Orcas Island Getaway!

"This is a house we could actually live in as a permanent home!"

- Karen & Rich C., July 2017

Enjoy the property located on a 3/4 acre parcel surrounded by towering native cedar and douglas fir trees. Our 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath home was manufactured in 2001 was completely remodeled in 2014/2015 with custom finishes for the discerning traveler and the open design and high ceilings take advantage of the 1,300 square feet, providing a spacious home for you to relax in.

You'll enjoy spending time relaxing outside as the home has two large decks with morning sun in the front and afternoon sun in the back. The rear deck overlooks the back yard with landscape lighting at night, features a Patio table with 4 chairs, a Stainless Steel propane BBQ grill and leads to the private Hot Tub for even more relaxation. Inside there's a propane fireplace to keep you warm during the fall and winter evenings.

“This house is amazing. It is completely updated with all the amenities you need to enjoy a spectacular and relaxing trip to Orcas Island.”

— Michael Z., April 2015

.:: RELAX IN A CLEAN & COMFORTABLE HOME ::.

Relax and enjoy the many amenities the home affords its guests. While the Island begs you to get out and enjoy nature, sometimes it's nice just hang out and relax.

In the living room, you'll find a very comfortable leather & microfiber sectional sofa which provides the relaxing atmosphere you're looking for after a day of exploring Orcas Island and its many gems.

The theme of 'Modern Rustic' is carried throughout the home in its furnishings and decor, and a neutral palette of earthy tones provide a tranquil environment for you to unwind.

For longer stays, the home also includes a full-sized washer and dryer (with complimentary detergent) should you wish to wash clothes/linens during your visit.

“The entertainment amenities were amazing great quality. I would recommend this place to friends and family! We will be staying next time we’re on the island.”

— Sale' S., March 2015

.:: BOSE Entertainment System ::.

Sometimes sitting back and relaxing with a movie or music is just what you're looking for. If this is the case, you'll be able to enjoy the Home Entertainment Center, which includes the following easy-to-use components for your enjoyment:

- 48' Vizio HDTV with 1080p quality

- BOSE 3-2-1 System, featuring:

- DVD, AM/FM & CD Player

- Auxiliary cable for your own music from phones/tablets

- Amazon Fire TV System with complimentary access to Amazon Prime, Netflix and HuluPlus programming.

- DVD library of over 2 dozen movies (mostly action, adventure, with some comedy & children's mixed in)

Note: The home does not have cable or satellite television service, only streaming services listed above.

“We’re big on cooking in, and the kitchen was well stocked - we didn’t need a thing.”

- David J., December 2015

.:: A COMPLETE KITCHEN WILL ALLOW YOUR CULINARY CREATIVITY TO SHINE ::.

Of course there are literally hundreds of amazing dishes being served by the local restaurants in Eastsound and surrounding communities, so don't spend all your time in the kitchen. But if you enjoy cooking at home as much as we do, then you'll appreciate a fully stocked kitchen to help you with all the things needed to create your own mouthwatering masterpieces.

Fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat from local farmers and ranchers allow you to use the freshest of ingredients if you're preparing your own meals. We also have a small herb selection in a planter on the back deck for you to enjoy during growing seasons.

“It has two bedrooms with nice beds- king in the master slept just great.”

— Jennifer U., June, 2015

.:: A MASTER SUITE THAT IS SPACIOUS & WELL APPOINTED ::.

The roomy Master Suite offers a quality King sized bedroom set with a firm and comfortable Dynasty 12' CoolBreeze Gel memory foam mattress. Between the walk-in-closet, two nightstands and a full-sized dresser, you should have plenty of space for your belongings upon arrival.

The remodeled master bath features a deep corner soaking tub and a beautiful travertine shower and floors as well as a dual sink vanity.

.:: GUEST BEDROOM ::.

The guest bedroom features a Dania bedroom set with a Serta Perfect Sleeper Davis Eurotop premium quality Queen-sized mattress set.

There's a full sized armoire, as well as a single nightstand and lamp next to the bed. The guest bedroom has immediate access to the remodeled Guest Bathroom just up the hall.

The guest bath features a large remodeled shower with full length rolling door, and modern porcelain tiles in the shower and floor. The guest bathroom is one of the features we receive a lot of positive comments on for design.

“The house was everything we expected and more. We immediately felt at home and didn’t want to leave! I honestly can’t think of anything I would change!

— Kelly T., September 2015

“...loved having wifi available and a big screen TV.”

— Barbara D., July 2015

.:: CONNECTED, IF NEEDED ::.

In today's connected world, even if you're trying to get away from it all, it's nice to be able to connect if you need to. With the varied topography of Orcas Island, you'll find many parts of the island do not have any cell reception at all. Fortunately, we receive a good cell signal for the major wireless carriers (we use both AT&T and Verizon with no issues) in and around Orcas Island Getaway.

Additionally, for those that want (or need) to stay connected, we offer complimentary high-speed internet through the Wi-Fi network with reliable service provided by CenturyLink.

You'll also enjoy access to the third bedroom that was converted into an office if you need to get any work done while staying at the home.

- Printer, Scanner, Copier

- 27" LCD Display (with HDMI cable to connect your laptop

- General office supplies

- Office Chair and Cabinet w/ Desk

“...the baths were fantastic and the hot tub put the icing on the cake.”

— Nat C., September 2015

.:: RELAXING COULDN'T BE EASIER ::.

Out on the back deck you'll find a peaceful escape from everything. Hearing birds singing in the trees and frogs from a nearby pond are a great reprise from the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life. The outdoor Hot Tub is located just around the corner from the deck and is sure to help you unwind.

Near dusk, you will often see deer making their way through the back side of the property as they head to other surrounding areas in search of tasty treats (yes, usually our flowering plants).

“The property was great with a lovely wooded setting in back with the hot tub, deck and firepit... felt very private...”

— Bonnie S., June 2015

The large deck overlooks the landscaping and outdoor mood lighting- making for a favorite spot you'll spend relaxing day or night.

.:: ENJOY THE OUTDOORS, BOTH ON ORCAS ISLAND AND AT THE HOME ::.

Although the property is surrounded by enormous Cedars, Douglas Firs and other native trees, you'll find the home is showered with sunlight throughout the day. Lounge in the morning/early afternoon sun on the front deck with comfortable adirondack chairs and on the afternoon/evening on the rear deck with patio set and stainless BBQ grill.

“The back deck and fire ring were our favorite places to hang out. With the perfect summer temperature and no bugs, we enjoyed the grill nearly every night! “

— Coast Traveler, August 2015

Take a short stroll on the trails through the property. One trail continues and leads you to Crescent Beach Drive, where just a few blocks away, you could continue on a short walk to Crescent Beach and the Crescent Beach Preserve where you'll find a 1.5 mile round trip flat trail to enjoy.

Be sure to follow Orcas Island Getaway on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

“The house was just as promised, very clean with lots of amenities to make our stay comfortable.”

About Todd & Lori D.

Hi! We're Todd & Lori, owners of Orcas Island Getaway. We fell in love with Orcas Island in the late 90's after a weekend getaway, and we were drawn to its magical charm ever since.

Having a vacation rental property on Orcas Island has been a dream come true. The ability to not only have a place we can call 'home away from home' but also share with others through vacation rental is rewarding and fulfilling. We truly love seeing reviews and getting notes from guests that have an opportunity to explore the many gems Orcas Island has to offer.

Todd & Lori D. purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd & Lori D. chose Orcas Island

We love the location of Orcas Island Getaway because it's just a few blocks from Crescent Beach, a mile from town (Eastsound) and just over 3 miles to Moran State Park, which makes this location a great starting point for just about all activities on the island.

We made a few to trips to Orcas Island over the course of a year, trying to find the right place to buy. The size of the home and property was perfect for what we were looking for, and our vision of what the home 'could be' with some sweat equity was readily apparent.

We closed on the home on Valentines Day 2014, and we spent the better part of 6 months remodeling and updating everything in the home, including all new flooring and paint, granite counters in the kitchen, updated lighting and completely remodeled both bathrooms with more contemporary tastes.

We're proud of the hard work we put into making the house a home. It's described as a 'warm and cozy' setting with plenty of space to relax. We hope you enjoy staying at the property as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The home offers proximity to everything, while having a lot of privacy at the same time. The home is surrounded by towering old-growth cedars, firs and other evergreen trees. It's a fairly natural landscape and changes with the seasons as such.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Note: Original review from our Yelp review



We had a girls weekend here last weekend and had the best time!!



The house is real quite close to everything, there's a gas station convenience store within walking distance that has a lot of stuff and just a bit further from that is the water with a small beach with gorgeous views. It's also really close to the town.



The house itself was great!! I loved all the little touches like the tiling in the shower and the decor is so beautiful. It was very clean and it was like they had thought of everything we would need in the kitchen (gotta have that blender to make girls weekend margaritas)



The house was really clean and there were plenty of towels for all 6 of us. We definitely enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of hiking and kayaking in the sound.



The whole process of booking, checking in and checking out was so smooth!! Todd sent me a personalized login for their website where I had access to everything I needed including awesome touches like ideas on where to eat and hike. He had a great book put together to walk us through everything we needed to do at the end of the trip. He also checked in with me during the trip to make sure all was going smoothly. Great customer service!!



All of the girls loved this place and we will definitely be planning another trip here in the future!

Super nice, great location, clean, comfy and cozy!!!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 granddaughters (9 & 11) my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely home. Our daughter & hubby from Seattle booked another location and upon visiting us here they obviously had accommodations envy and remorse. I definitely expect they will also make use of this listing in the future. We loved the whale watching tour with Orcas Outfitters. Had a beautiful sunset tour & awesome sightings of Orcas, bald eagles, sea lions, deer & light house. Also visited Moran State Park and the Summit - unbelievable. Rosario concert was unique. Crescent Beach was fun to search for sea shells and the shops in town were terrific. Ate at the Island Skillet and that was very good. Roses Cafe is a MUST! Be sure to eat at the Inn at Ship Bay, delicious! We love Orcas Island and we will be back for a longer stay sooner than later. Definitely want to book this place when we do. It was immaculately clean, super comfortable and had everything we could ask for. Love the decor - plan to copy some of the ideas for our house. We made smores in the fire pit, used the hot tub, the grands explored the walking trails on the property, we did laundry, etc. We all enjoyed the sweet and friendly outdoor kitty. Always love to have a vacation pet. Bravo for creating the perfect atmosphere for a delightful stay whether it be for romance or entertaining family and friends. The granddaughters didn't want to leave. (Neither did I). Booking this listing was an awesome choice! We felt right at home. Thank you so much Todd and Lori!

Well equipped, nicely furnished home

  • 4 of 5

We felt lucky that so nice and clean a place was dog friendly! Pet dishes (even an elevated one), beds, toys, a fenced deck, a trolley line. The location was as noted, close to town via an easy-access beach; alas, we ended up driving to and from Eastsound because the stretch of road had no shoulder for pedestrians, and the cars traveled fast. Happily, the dog park (new ones not yet open) became our first stop of the day so the dogs could play and run before we began our explorations of the island. It was mowed, clean, and frequented by locals, which allowed socialization for canines and humans alike. Moran State Park with its lakes and trails was close; the welcome book in the house had maps and suggestions for other places of interest. Orcas has so much variety, topographically and otherwise.

As for the house, you folks thought of just about every convenience, from sharp knives in the kitchen to hair dryers to marshmallow-toasting implements. We had a ridiculously difficult time operating the tv, but then who comes on vacation to watch the news? Beds were fine, and we particularly appreciated the carpeting in the bedrooms (to silence the click-clicking of dog toenails on the bare floor). One suggestion: a brighter lamp or two for reading and knitting when you can't just go outside!.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a house we could actually live in as a permanent home! It is very modern, clean, and up to date. The rooms are quite spacious and the lay out is nice with the 2 bedrooms on opposite sides of the house. The owners are meticulous and have taken very good care of the house and property. They have also thought of many extra details that make a stay very easy and comfortable. The hot tub and fire pit are also fun to have. The location was extremely convenient and it was quick and easy to get to all of the activities we wanted to do. We would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Karen and Rich, thanks so much for sharing a review of your stay and glad to hear you all had a great time during on your visit. You all were fantastic at communication so we could help with your situation - appreciate that. The fire pit and hot tub are definitely a couple of favorite amenities from guests and we're glad you all were able to take advantage as well! We hope you all have a chance to return again in the future. Best, Todd & Lori

Could have been 5 stars but ...

  • 4 of 5

House was very well equipped but our impression declined as we saw some dog hair stuck in the bathtub and previous client's left over female hygiene items etc in the basket. Only one toilet paper in each bathroom as housekeeper apparently forgot to supply extra. Ended up buying our own. Owner responded immediately to this issue. Sorry to drop your rating....

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize for missing the mark on your stay as we pride ourselves on offering an extremely clean home that is well stocked. One point of clarification, the feminine hygiene products in the baskets in each bathroom cabinet are actually provided by us, meant for any guest in case of emergency for their convenience and not leftover products from previous guests. Thanks for the feedback and we've addressed the concerns with our team.
