About

BEACHFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME ON ORCAS ISLAND. MOORING BUOY & DOG FRIENDLY

Your family can wade in the island waters, launch kayaks from the beach, play board games by the fire, and make memories that last a lifetime in “A Sailor’s Rest.” A boat mooring buoy may be open for guest use but you will need to confirm suitability for your boat and availability when making your reservation.

This charming Orcas Island vacation rental home has been remodeled and updated for comfort, yet it retains a classic island feel. While the house itself is delightful and cozy, you will likely spend a lot of time outside breathing the clean sea air, dining on the deck, and soaking in the hot tub. Located right on the beach, there is a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains, neighboring islands, and the passing boat traffic. This is what vacationing in the San Juan Islands is all about.

The configuration of queen and twin beds will accommodate a variety of guests and age groups. The master bedroom has its own pot-belly stove and private tiled bath with a whirlpool tub. The kitchen is equipped with the basics, but you might consider bringing specialty cookware if you will be preparing a special meal.

A Sailor’s Rest is located in a neighborhood of similar beach front homes in Olga. Your beach is posted as private property and a public day-use dock and boat ramp are nearby.

Driving from the ferry landing it is about 40 minutes to A Sailor’s Rest, during which you will drive through Eastsound Village and the forested hiking trails of Moran State Park. In addition to the shops and dining options in Eastsound, there are also several restaurants and shops in nearby Olga, Rosario, and Doe Bay.

The house needs a refresh but is comfortable for a group. Nice location. No ice maker and for the price it should all be top notch. Checkout time is very early (10am instead of noon) and the yard man and hot tub maintainence guy showed up early on our checkout day. We could not use the hot tub. No flexibility from the management company. The house was not rented before our arrival so I asked if we could drop off cold food to put in the fridge. Was told it could not be done because the house needed to be cleaned. Surely the house did not sit dirty for a week before our arrival. Just little stuff but for the price I expect better.

We loved our stay at Sailors Rest on Orcas. We loved that it had a sandy beach and our son loved to play in the sand. It is about 20 minutes from town but we did not find that to far away. It was actually very close to Moran State Park and beautiful hikes to waterfalls. The Hot Tub with ocean view was a favorite for our family and we spent many nights relaxing in it. The bay was lovely. There is a public boat ramp and there was some traffic with big boats, barges, and small ferries dropping off construction trucks but it wasn't noisy and our son loved watching it all and provided a lot of entertainment. The house was clean and we had everything we needed. It is not fancy but really lovely. Our only problem was that during our stay a breaker got tripped and we couldn't get the the power box because it was in the garage which was locked and we didn't have access to it. The breaker that tripped controlled the refrigerator and other kitchen appliances. It was at night and we called the rental company after hours number but there was nothing they could do until someone could be sent out the next day but that means we lost the food in the refrigerator that went bad overnight and were without several appliances. We were just grateful it wasn't the heater since we have small kiddos and it was cold. I think for safety purposes, guests should be able to access the fuse box. Also there was not cell phone service and the two numbers that were given to us for the house phone did not work. So while we gave them to our families so they could call us, they could not. We mentioned this when someone came to fix the tripped breaker and they said they were going to get it fixed but we never heard back from them. Again, for safety purposes I think there should be a working phone number.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your extensive review of your recent stay at A Sailor's Rest, a comfortable waterfront home with beautiful sandy beach on Orcas Island. That home is indeed very well located, close to many outdoor activities and has a wonderful hot tub. We appreciate your comments about the breaker, which our maintenance person was able to correct the next day after it was reported to our after-hours operator. Cell phone service is sometimes spotty on our rural island; and we contacted the home owner immediately after learning the landline phone wasn't working property. That has now been fixed. Again, thank you for your helpful comments, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay overall, and we hope to welcome you again to one of our vacation rental homes in the beautiful San Juan Islands.

The home was very well appointed and comfortable. It has an interesting layout, in that the 4 BRs and 3 BAs are split into two sets of BR/BA groups. But this turned out to be just perfect for the two families that were staying there. The hot tub had an issue during our stay and there was someone there to take a look within a day and they were able to fix it.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your nice comments about your recent stay at A Sailor's Rest. It is indeed a beautiful and comfortable home in such a great location. We appreciate your attention to our quick response to your hot tub issue; we are proud of our response team and are always ready to help promptly with any guest issues. We do look forward to welcoming you again to one of our lovely vacation homes in the San Juan Islands!

'Sailor's Rest' in Olga was a wonderful place to make our homebase on Orcas. We had 3 generations sharing the home for a week and the layout was such that we all had our own space and were very comfortable - the little one was able to go to bed early and have a quiet space while the adults could stay up late and enjoy the amazing view and hot tub. We would definitely return for another vacation.

Second year with 3 generations enjoying this great house over Memorial Day weekend. Perfectly set up with bedrooms in two wings. Love sitting on the big deck watching kids play on the lawn or beach w beautiful views. Unusual rental in that there is plenty of room at the dining table and enough chairs on deck for all to enjoy together. And the dog was in 7th heaven! Well be back next year if still available (property is for sale).

Visit to Orcas Island and the house were great. My only criticism/suggestion would be the extremely squeaky bed in the bedroom facing the water. It is bad enough that it prevents a good night's sleep and should be fixed.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, thank you for visiting the Islands and for staying at a Sailor's Rest. I also appreciate the information about the bed in that room; it has been forwarded on to our island manager who will be assessing the need for a new bed and notifying the owner if one needs to be purchased. We hope you had a great rest of your stay and will return soon to see us again. Best Regards, JR

We were at A Sailor's Rest for a family birthday celebration with 3 generations and loved it. The house is as far away from anything as you can get on Orcas...but still only 15- 20 minutes from Eastsound. Great for us but might not work well if guest wants to go out to dinner, hang in shops etc. Nothing in the least bit fancy but completely comfortable inside and out. Bedrooms are separated two and two off living room with doors to each "wing.". Although next to the county dock, even over a long weekend there was not much activity and we felt relatively private. Great place for kids and a dog with large deck, good sized lawn and beach. Only complaint was lack of any decent knives and small dining table for 6 (we squeezed 8 as two were kids).

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, We appreciate you choosing to stay with us in the Islands on your vacation getaway! We agree with you about this property; it is in a very special location near the far tip on one end of the Island. It is an extremely relaxed setting; slow paced and quiet as can be. We also appreciate you taking the time to leave this review and include the feedback you provided. It has been forwarded to our staff to be addressed and we hope future guests will not have the same issues. We hope you will return to the Islands and give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations. Best Regards, General Manager

We had a very nice time sharing this house with some good friends. The location is great. We arrived by boat and used the county dock daily to pick up people with our boat that we moored overnight on the mooring bouy. The house is spacious and the deck is sunny and warm. Boating, bike riding, hiking, and wildlife viewing were just some of our activities.

We were delighted to spend 4 days at Sailor's Rest--wish it could have been longer. We were there with our kids and grandkids for our 50th wedding anniversary. What a great house! Spacious, two bedroom wings gave us privacy, jacuzzi was a hit, walking right down to the beach with our paddleboards was so convenient. The kitchen had every gadget we could have wanted, too. Loved everything!!

This place was absolutely amazing!! The view was stunning!! Upon arrival, I was a little worried about privacy due to the fact that there is a marina literally right next door but I have to say for the most part, we felt very private. Sitting in the hot tub or lying in the hammock, we were all very relaxed. I loved that this property allowed dogs as my two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers absolutely loved that they could swim and then chill in the grass as they dried off. Our family of 4 adults and 4 kids all felt comfortable here.....we will definitely be back!! 4 nights here was just not enough!!

My one and only complaint is the bed in the bedroom with a view & patio. A new frame or something is needed....you can't even turn over in bed without a huge creaking sound. I have to say that after spending 4 nights on this bed, at no point in time did I get a good nights sleep. (This is the only reason I gave 4 stars for quality of furniture). Because of this, there may have been a nap or two in the hammock LOL.

Lovely!

This home was spacious for 7 guests and due to the distances from restraurants having a large and well-equipped kitchen was great. The home was clean, it is stocked minimally with paper-goods (a little skimpy for the price we paid) but other amenities and beach towels were appreciated. Best of all, it is right on the water with a small pier next door so lots to watch but quiet. The hot tub was clean and worked well, a hit with the kids and grandparents. I took a private half day sailing lesson at Orcas Island Sailing, with Ben, and had an amazing experience.

We brought our boat and enjoyed beautiful weather, a spacious house and fantastic views. We gathered at the large dining table for games and meals and on the on the deck for drinks and scenery. You won't need to bring much if you stay here. Just outside games/toys and food. Everything else was provided.

What a delightful place to get away and rest! The view and the peace and quiet were incredible. The full moon shining on the water at night was like God's spotlight on the water. We ended up cooking most of our own meals as the kitchen was so well equipped and with the view, why leave?

We had a heavenly time staying at the Sailor's rest. The view is divine and the kids loved running on the beach. The house itself is spacious & comfortable. Location on Orcas island is terrific: very close to Moran State Park (which had wonderful swimming lakes, trails, playground, Mt Constitution) and not too far from Eastsound.

We hope to return!

We took our two grandsons and their parents and had a great time! Mornings we sat on the beach to watch to boys play. Took a picnic to the lake for afternoon swimming. Hiked, biked... the hot tub was a terrific way to end the day. Great view!
The staff had to bring us a few things and the windows needed washing, but we were very happy.

Beautiful home, clean, open but private layout. Great boat and dock access. Everything we could possibly want was there....from utensils, to wading boots to towels. Deers and hummingbirds abound. Can't wait to come back!

A birthday celebration with 2 generations of family - 7 people and 1 dog. We had the perfect week. Together time, alone time, hikes, saunas, walks, beach, and meals on the deck facing the beautiful sound. We brought our own kayak which was used constantly in the mornings and evenings as the beach was easily accessible, and the waters calm (if you didn't go too far). A morning stop at Buck's Bay Shelfish and we were set for dinner. The weather was perfect - six days of sunshine, which the locals told us was not that common.

This house is very well appointed. We were 2 families and it was nice to have the bedrooms on seperate sides of the home. The view and waterfront access are devine! We brought our boat and found the public dock and mooring buoy to be quite handy. The home is quite a drive from any local stores or restaurants so bring your supplies! We would love to come & stay again sometime.

The online photos, as good as they are, don't convey the beauty of the location or the high quality of the home. The view of Obstruction Pass/Obstruction Island is among the best in the San Juans. Of all the vacation rental homes where we've stayed, this was the best equipped, with everything we needed in the kitchen and a great grill. The WiFi is poor, and Verizon cell service isn't available, but that may be just what you want when you're on vacation.

Loved the house. Our 3 year old's favorite thing to do was to walk to where the barges came in and see them loading and offloading cargo. The only reason I only gave it 4 of 5 stars on the location was that it was a little futher from the grocery store than I would have liked. On the other hand, I think many would have appreciated that remoteness.

Overall, a great place to stay. My in laws want to know when we our booking our next trip.

Sailor's Rest is a fantastic vacation getaway. There are gorgeous views from the deck and the house itself is very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking supplies and there's a nice gas BBQ. The hot tub on the
deck is fantastic for an early morning soak or a late night viewing of the stars. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the only reason we didn't give 5 stars for cleanliness is that we had to clean up a spill in the fridge that left a fishy smell. The
management was very apologetic and gave us some vouchers at the local bakery.

This is a great place to stay, an amazing view, lots of comfortable rooms. The kitchen was out of dishwash gel so we had to drive into town our 2nd day but staff was helpful solving that, and also helping us in other ways during our stay.

Good location to the water and access to our boat.

However, the house itself needs some good cleaning, when we arrived the floors were sticky and dishes were not very clean, all the doors in the home did not shut properly, house was very dusty and dirty we had to wash the sheets on the beds because they all smelled like they had not been used for a long time. Also when we did take the sheets off the beds the mattress pads were very dirty too. Overall the home needs a throughly cleanly. Also Wi-Fi should be included in the house.

Manager's Response

An unusual circumstance impacted our ability to complete spring cleaning for this home and that issue is being addressed with the homeowner. We refunded a portion of this rental to compensate for the guest inconvenience. WIFI is also now provided at no charge.

This is a great location with all of the amenities you could want. The buoy for the boat was greatly appreciated, although a private dock would be ideal. Orcas Island has too much to offer for just a one week visit, so we will be returning next summer.

We took family to this fantastic home in a delightful location. It had everything we needed including a fantastic view of the harbor, Obstruction Pass, kayak rentals next door, Bald Eagle sitings, and deer on the lawn! The house itself is beautiful with a nice open kitchen/living room layout. Perfect for entertaining. There's a nice large deck with a hammock and hot tub. We enjoyed congregating there for coffee in the morning and cocktail hour in the evening. The hot tub was touchy with the controls but the Owner came right over to help fix it. I highly recommend this rental!
