ORCAS ISLAND VACATION RENTAL HOME AT FERRY LANDING, WATERVIEW

Orcas Hill House is a bright two-bedroom vacation rental home with king-size beds, fine linens, and a wood-burning fireplace. It has a refined yet comfortable feel, furnished with original retro furnishings and in nature’s autumn colors. Located near the top of Orcas Hill, the house sits on a rocky overlook with expansive south-to-western views over the water with the Olympic Mountains in the distance. You will enjoy golden sunrises and sunsets from the deck, which wraps around three sides of the house as well as a view of the San Juan Islands ferries coming and leaving the Island.

Located above the ferry landing, this vacation home offers a convenient location near a quality grocery and small eateries including the dining room and bar at the historic Orcas Hotel. From here you can also set out on a whale-watch cruise, rent a moped, or catch a ferry to a neighboring island. Eastsound Village is an easy 15 minute drive with Moran State Park about 25 minutes away.

Dogs under 30 lbs. will be considered on an exception basis subject to being confined in the kitchen (baby gate provided) or on the decks so that they do not have access to the soft hardwood floors. Firewood not provided.

    Christopher G from San Rafael, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The Orcas Hill House property was a perfect sanctuary to end our long Pacific Northwest vacation. After a few weeks of dodging the BC fires we ended our time off with clear skies in the San Juan's and spent a few days re-exploring Orcas Island. The home had all of the amenities we needed to enjoy a few nights of BBQs and cocktails.
    We hope to return soon.

    Elizabeth "Betsy" D from Bozeman, MT recommends this vacation rental

    My husband, brother and sister-in-law recently stayed at the Orcas Hill House. The setting and location are wonderful, close to the ferry and high on a hill with a terrific view. The place is a little on the campy/cabiny side and could use some updates for sure (or a discount in price), but we enjoyed the house, it was comfy, relaxing and quiet. A second shower should be a major priority as it was awkward with 4 adults using one shower indeed! Overall, though, we had a great time and got a lot of use out of the huge balcony!

    It is a beautiful house looking out over the ferry area. It is very peaceful. Easy walk down to the grocery store for the little things we needed. We stayed 5 days and were comfortable the whole time.

    a guest from Kirkland, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Beautiful view, but a serious uphill walk from the ferry terminal. Part of the road is not paved so you will be walking through mud. Much easier to find the house in the day time so try to be at the house before dark. House is decorated ala 1950's with lots of olds books for reading. The house seemed too made for really short people so anyone tall may have to duck when showering and the “john” is quiet short, only one shower in the house in the master bedroom so keep that in mind. The TV is old school and small, our technology did not work with it. They do have some VHS tapes and Direct TV but we could only get 5 channels to work, only one TV available. Code for the wireless is on the bottom of the router not the one in the book. Only had one roll of TP for a 5 days stay so bring some with you. Very quiet and peaceful, cell phone had no service at the house but did at the bottom of the hill. The temp of the house varies a lot. Windows are single pane so the sun really heats up the house but when the sun went down it cooled down very fast. Not really a yard to play in moss covered slopes so no game of touch football here if that is what you were looking for. Master bed was very comfortable and cozy.
    They are serious about the check out time being at 10 am. The house cleaners showed up a day early due to miscommunication and woke us up and were promptly back the next day at 9:55 am. Do not doddle when leaving.

    We loved staying at this home! The only things that weren't perfect was the dishwasher seemed to be on the blitz, and the internet did not work. Otherwise - perfect!!

    Barbara M from Whittier, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed at this location many times over a period of 20 years. Our first impression on this trip was that the house looked fresh and neat. It had been painted and had new furniture on the front porch. I loved the linens on the bed in the master. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom and kitchen. A new toaster would improve the kitchen a lot for a small cost. The view from the decks is a magnet - you have to keep looking and a full moon didn't hurt. Looks like this was our last trip to Orcas Island but it was a grand finale.

  • Thank you for a very enjoyable weekend. We felt very relaxed and comfortable and would highly recommend the property!

    Please let me know about the boy's bathing suit we left in the dryer. I gave the address for it to be sent to in Redmond. We will be happy to pay postage. Also - you need to know about the carpenter ant droppings I left in the paper cup...they were on the table when we arrived.

      Suit was sent! And have dealt with those pesky ants.

    This charming house was in absolutely perfect condition, well equipped, in a convenient location, and has a priceless view. We LOVED it, and would recommend it without hesitation. If you haven't visited Orcas island, you must. And when you do, make sure you stay here!

      Thanks for compliments, we'll see you next time!

    We had a nice time and enjoyed the home. Only problem was that there were quite a lot of ants inside the home. Please notify the owner that they may have a carpenter ant problem. Thanks.

    We Loved the House. The location was a bit remote for my Husband,It was great for my Daughter son -in-law and me.We loved the views.The only down side was the half bath rather than a second full bath. Everything else was perfect.We fell in-love with the San JUan Islands and the people.Everyone was friendly and helpful especially the agents at Windemere.

    a guest from Huntersville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    This cottage is a great location being a very short distance from the ferry terminal; however, if you do not have transportation you walk up a rather steep hill to get to the house. even w/luggage on wheels we struggled (we're in relatively good shape, mid 40's). highly recommend renting a car at the time you arrive for 24 hours - this will get you to the house much easier and it's a great way to get around Orcas for 1 day. bus transp. is nice, but $6/pp/each way. renting a car for 1 day gives you flexibility to see all you want to see on Orcas. car rental is just up street from ferry terminal.
