ABOUT THE HOME
Orcas Island Getaway is the perfect escape for your next trip to the San Juan Islands. Located on a 3/4 acre parcel surrounded by towering native evergreen trees, this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath home manufactured in 2001 was completely remodeled in 2014/2015 and offers great privacy despite being just minutes to town.
The open layout and high ceilings take advantage of the 1,300 square feet, providing a very spacious feel in the home, and bedrooms on opposite sides allow privacy for couples and families.
You'll enjoy relaxing outside on the rear deck, overlooking the large backyard with landscape lighting during the evenings. The deck features a patio table with six chairs, a Stainless Steel propane BBQ grill and leads to the outdoor Hot Tub to end the day in relaxation.

THE LIVING AREA
Space to relax in comfort or to be entertained... your choice.
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 to just hang out and relax.
In the living room, you'll find a very comfortable leather sofa & love seat 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 with the details on 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 stay.
Wi-Fi Access? Yes, and always complimentary for our guests
We also 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, which includes the use of our printer/scanner/copier and office supplies, also complimentary. There's a dedicated workspace and even a 27" LCD monitor for hooking in your laptop (HDMI and Thunderbolt).
On-island, but still connected
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 most parts of the island do not have any cell reception at all. Fortunately, we receive cell signal for the major wireless carriers in and around Orcas Island Getaway.

THE KITCHEN & DINING AREA
Allow your culinary creativity to shine
Amazing dishes are being served by the local restaurants in Eastsound and surrounding communities, so don't spend all your time in the kitchen. However, if you enjoy cooking at home as much as we do, then you'll appreciate a fully equipped, and well stocked kitchen to enjoy dining at home.
Enjoy fresh fruits & vegetables from local farmers and the seasonal farmers market. You'll find several farm stands throughout the island year-round, offering the freshest ingredients possible. We also have a small fresh herb selection in our planters on the rear deck for you to enjoy during the growing season.
Orcas Island Getaway Tip: have some cash handy when visiting local farm stands. Many operate on the honor system by paying for what you take with a cash drop box.
Spacious and well-appointed with quality furnishings
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.

Enjoy the outdoors, both on the Island and at the home
Although the property is surrounded by enormous evergreen trees, you'll find the home is showered with sunlight throughout the day.
Lounge in the morning/early afternoon sun on the front deck and afternoon/evening on the rear deck with, BBQ grill and patio set and string lighting for ambiance during the evening.
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 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 between Crescent Beach Drive and Mt. Baker Road.
Location, location, location.
The home is just 1 mile from the vibrant community of Eastsound, the main village Orcas Island, and only two blocks to the beautiful Crescent Beach and the Crescent Beach Preserve.
For outdoor enthusiasts, we're a close 3.5 miles from Moran State Park where you'll find Mt. Constitution with over 30 miles of hiking trails, mountain biking, canoeing & kayaking as well as several freshwater lakes.
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 Hot Tub is located just around the corner from the deck and is sure to help you unwind and is a perfect size for 2-4 adults.
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 (unfortunately it's usually our flowering plants). The large deck overlooks the landscaping and outdoor mood lighting - making for a favorite spot you'll spend relaxing day or night.

San Juan County Vacation Rental Permit
Hi! We're Todd & Lori, owners of Orcas Island Getaway.
Our Orcas Island story
We fell in love with Orcas Island many years ago after a weekend getaway and had been drawn to its magical charm ever since.
We made a few to trips to Orcas Island over the course of a year, trying to find the right place for a place we could escape the 'city life'. The size of the home coupled with the privacy of the property and convenience to town and Moran State Park 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 Valentine's Day 2014, and we spent the better part of 6 months remodeling and updating everything in the home over long weekends and vacation days. From all new flooring and paint, granite counters in the kitchen, updated lighting and completely remodeled both bathrooms, our goals was to create a comfortable environment with more contemporary tastes.
Our move to full-time islanders:
Having a vacation rental property on Orcas Island has been a dream come true. Having a home that we could 'escape' to as well as sharing with others was fulfilling. We enjoyed visiting Orcas Island so much in that first year that we quickly realized we wanted to live on the island full-time. In the summer of 2015, we sold our home in the Seattle area, purchased another property on Orcas Island and now live on the island year-round while offering Orcas Island Getaway as a vacation rental for others to continue to enjoy.
What we think you'll love about the home:
We pride ourselves in offering an extremely clean, well maintained and user-friendly rental. They also 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 ideal for exploring the island.
We hope you enjoy staying at the property as much as we have!
