North Beach Cottage is awesome: cozy, quiet, sunny, very clean, fully equipped. Backyard is lovely. Kitchen and bath supplies were more than enough. It is conveniently located to Eastsound. Two minutes walking from the Outer Island Excursions office (amazing whale watching tour!). Easy drive to Moran State Park. It took a while to find it as it is completely hidden by the trees and the sign with the indication is not that visible while driving, in particular during the night. Overall, excellent stay.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your wonderful review of North Beach Cottage. We agree, it's a great home, clean, in a lovely setting while still very close to Eastsound and the beach, making it very conveniently located for so many fun island activities. Thank you for pointing out the difficulty in reading the sign as well. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again to a vacation rental home in the San Juan Islands.

We visited Orcas Island for a short family vacation and the North Beach Cottage was ideal abode away from home. Comfortable, with amenities beyond expected (toiletries were a nice touch), conveniently located (walking distance to North Beach and Eastsound town center), yet secluded in the tall tree growth. Wonderful!

We were super happy with this rental. The house is very nice (I thought nicer than what I had expected from the pictures). Great open floor space. Great well equipped kitchen (we baked and made marmelade!), big garden for kids to play. We picked lots of great blackberries in the garden. Twice at the end of the afternoon a deer came in the garden, the kids were so excited. We walked to Eastsound (20 min walk) and to the small beach (5 min walk), as well as to our whale watching excursion boat (5 min). So convenient!!

The owners description of near the airport was exactly right! We leaned after the first night to sleep with the windows closed, the first planes start landing early, but that airport is not too busy! We would easily stay here again. The house has plenty of room and other than planes landing in the back yard, it is the perfect location!

The house was very clean when we arrived and convenient to Eastsound Village where we ate out a few times and were able to conveniently get groceries. We did walk to the beach a couple of times. So beautiful! We also enjoyed activities on Orcas such as kayaking and whale watching and didn't even have to leave the island! The layout of the house worked perfectly for our family of 5.

Great house, had all the kitchen and bath supplies you would need. About a 1 mile walk into Eastsound, had a path the whole way so it's a nice walk. Easy drive to Moran State Park. Very clean, quiet (even though it's next to the airport, that really wasn't a problem!)

This was the best rental location for us, only a short walk to the rest of our group. The house was very clean, perfect for our small group, a very large kitchen, that allowed several to prepare the evening meals. The living room was large enough for get togethers each night. Only complaint, no garbage bags for garbage or recycling, and no lid for the outside garbage can; bought bags, found a lid that worked. I would stay here again, in a heartbeat,

Nestled away in the north end of Eastsound, the house has all of the necessary elements - a full kitchen (gas range, HUGE fridge, dishwasher), two full bathrooms (one of which is a spacious double shower) and enough beds to sleep four children comfortably and a sofa-bed in case it's needed. There's also an on-site washer and dryer in case you want to do a load of laundry before you go, so as to reduce the amount of dirty clothes you're packing.

The property is a short drive (you could walk. but it's a relatively busy road with no sidewalks) to town and a few blocks walk from the beach, so if spending time in and around Eastsound is part of your plan, it's great.

But you may end up staying put. As long as the weather is nice, the backyard is cozy. Deer (bucks and does and fawns) passed through to graze while we were there, which was a treat.

Overall this was a great house. Very clean and updated. You can't beat the location. We were so pleased with the path out front that took us to either the beach or into town. We even walked down the driveway to a whale watching boat.

My only complaint about the house was the management company's stinginess on supplies. I re-read the contract after arriving and noted the terminology about what they would leave you was very carefully worded "a few napkins, some dishwasher tablets, etc". We got 7 napkins, 2 tiny rolls of paper towels, and enough dishwasher detergent to run the dishwasher twice. I was not happy to have to go into town to buy all these supplies at double what I would have paid at home. We've stayed in vacation homes before and never had excessive supplies of staples but always had enough for our stay. So great house, but bring extra supplies!

Another note- the listed DVD player is actually a Blu-Ray player. We left our Blu-Ray disks all at home and were disappointed when we arrived. Also the review earlier about bad kitchen knives seems to be rectified as they have a big block with lots of sharp knives now.

We enjoyed our stay in the Northbeach cottage. The house felt very new, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the 15-20 minute walk into Eastsound and the stroll to the sound a few blocks in the other direction. There is a large grassy backyard and we enjoyed sitting in the Adirondack chairs on the back porch and relaxing.

The kitchen has a great set of pans, but bring your own knives if you're a serious cook. Dish ware was a bit sparse--Corelle plates (yuck) and little in the way of serving dishes, etc. we had fun cooking anyway. The oven/stove is very nice. Bring your own coffee grinder!

The airport is very close and you can hear airplanes (little Cessna type planes) but the noise didn't bother us. Other than the airport it was quiet.

Two of the bedrooms are fine--Room with queen & private bath, another room with two twin beds, but the last with an odd bunk bed (queen below, twin above which I hit my head on several times) and a rollaway . . . There is also a sofa bed in the living room--why so many extra beds? You can actually sleep more people than the maximum number allowed! Other than the plethora of beds, it was also a perfectly useable room.

All that said, I'd stay here again. Clean, easy nice & new feeling, a relaxing place.

Eastsound is charming (we liked Roses & the Loft restaurants, bookstore & art gallery), the scenery is BEAUTIFUL, Orcas a Island Pottery and the top of Mount Constitution were worth the drive, and we enjoyed the 4 mile hike around Mountain lake in Moran State park.

We are definitely coming back.

We stayed in August and would love to return to this location. The house is located just a short distance north of Eastsound. We were able to walk or bike to town with ease even with small kids since there is a walking path the whole way.

The house was bright and airy and just as in the pictures. The area is quiet and even though it is close to the airport the noise was not distracting. The home was in great condition, had plenty of amenities and was very clean on arrival making for a comfortable stay.
