About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Baths With Roomy Great Room, Wrap-Around Deck, And Water Views.
Launch your island explorations from the Bungalow in West Sound! Totally refurbished, this shoreline home is comfortable, fresh and charming, in a style we call "beachy elegance." Gorgeous views across Deer Harbor Road to the waters of West Sound. Southern outlooks include the boat masts in the harbor, sunsets to the west, and bucolic orchard. Dock/beach/mooring buoy are just a short stroll down the street for boat moorage, beach combing, clamming, and sailing. Within walking distance of Kenmore Air's landing dock at West Sound Marina. Orcas Island Yacht Club is next door, and the charming West Sound Cafe (for summer dinner service) is around the corner. Summer sailing lessons available in the harbor too. Dine on the roomy deck or lounge in the Adirondack chairs with the the soothing sounds of the creek next door as it tumbles into the sea. Relax in the cool evening air enjoying the charming ambiance of the propane fire pit. Plus, brand new, four person hot tub! Families will love playing in the large level yard, observing abundant wildlife including families of deer, perhaps an otter, mink or raccoon, and a plethora of birds. Cozy and secluded for a couple or small family, yet with sleeping quarters and dining areas for eight or more. Two bedrooms with queen beds downstairs, plus large loft room with an additional two queens. Loft also serves as a rec room, with roomy TV viewing area, games and game/project table. Well-appointed kitchen with new propane range and hood, and new barbecue just outside. Great room is a terrific gathering place year around, and a panel of windows across the space frames the picture-perfect view. Coffee/tea service is provided, all bathroom amenities, and laundry room products. Pet friendly too! Our reviews on the Bungalow and our six other vacation rentals speak to our efforts to provide our guests with the best possible experience during their island stay. As life-long islanders, we enjoy welcoming visitors to our beautiful corner of the world, and can lead you to island backroads as well as beautiful and more well-travelled trails. We look forward to hosting you!

Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: We are long time Orcas Islanders -- Wally grew up on Orcas and Susan was drawn here because of summers with her grandparents on nearby Samish Island. The natural beauty was our initial attraction in building a life here, but the wonderful community of eclectic neighbors have kept us here. It has been a great place to raise our family.
Why the Owner Chose Eastsound, WA, USA:
The West Sound Hamlet has always held a special place in our hearts. We have a dock there, and Wally spent part of his childhood years living in the neighborhood. In fact, his family used to have Thanksgiving with the family who owned the Bungalow at the time. We hope someday to relocate there, and were thrilled when this wonderful home became available.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The Bungalow is unique, as it has access to all that West Sound offers -- beautiful views, marina, dock, public beach, sailing, a cafe -- yet is tucked privately on a large lot surrounded by lush vegetation. The large level yard is promising as a future garden, and the home's floor plan is cozy and easy to navigate, yet has plenty of room for a family or group. What really topped it off for us is the stream and salt-water estuary on the property's boundary, offering a lullaby of sound day and night.
