About

BEAUTIFUL & UPSCALE WATERFRONT HOME WITH FANTASTIC VIEWS & A GOURMET KITCHEN

Picture phenomenal sunrises, five acres of lushly wooded hillsides and moss-covered slopes, a seasonal stream, the call of sea birds, and 300 feet of rocky shoreline. This is the beauty of nature that surrounds this northwest contemporary vacation home on Orcas Island.

You will find Seaside at the end of a winding drive through a magical forest setting. This home is a well built and well cared for home offering sweeping views over East Sound and toward Mount Constitution and Rosario Resort.

The upper level living room features vaulted beamed ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, and a propane fireplace. With soapstone counters, Sub Zero refrigerator, Viking range, and a large prep island, the kitchen is equipped to please the most discriminating chef. The laundry room and a queen bedroom is on this upper level as is a bathroom with shower. The living, dining, and bedrooms open onto spacious decking that will invite you to embrace the great outdoors when you dine.

Downstairs you’ll find the master bedroom suite featuring a king bed. The master bathroom is gracious, offering dual vanities, a large open shower, and a soaking tub with a view. Down the hall is a third bedroom that offers a full size bed, desk, and sofa bed. The lower level also offers a large sauna, a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by river rock, TV, DVD player, and music system.

Dogs under 12 pounds may be accepted with prior owner approval. _Do note that due to the high-bank and deck exposure, children and animals will require strict adult supervision._

Seaside is located about 15 minutes from the Orcas ferry landing and about 15 minutes from the village of Eastsound.

Nice place..great living spaces. Only suggestion: bedroom downstairs near sauna had NO END TABLE/LAMPS for guests to use. The room was very bare compared to the other rooms. We did move a couple of pieces of furniture to create a place for guests to use as end table (and returned to original place on exit).

The 1/4 mile long drive way was blocked by a locked gate. We couldn't get our vehicle to the house. Had to walk.

Manager's Response

General Manager - The guest is correct that there is a gate across the entry driveway to this home. However, the guest is provided the code to the gate lock in their arrival directions. We also have a 24 on-call person to assist any guest with access issues, who could have provided the gate code when needed. It is possible this guest did not bring their arrival directions with them. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience they experienced. We note this guest used Airbnb to book, which utilizes a system of isolating communications between guests and our property management team. Normally we can overcome this inconvenience for the guest, but may have not had that option for this guest. Please note that the cleanliness, location, and property condition are all rated as 5 out of 5.

Our family really enjoyed this home. A very comfortable floor plan, spacious and nicely furnished - just like the pictures portray it. Lots of window and huge deck to enjoy views of the water. Enjoyed using the grill and the gourmet kitchen although its inventory didn't match its appearance, and master bath would benefit from more bath linens. Overall, it was great - we would stay here again.

Stayed here as part of a small group of 2 families-4 adults and 3 kids. Views are phenomenal, and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. We had more than enough space to spread out as needed, and the hot tub was a great way to spend the evenings. We did have a toddler with us-will mention that parents with small kids may want to be extra cautious given the cliffs, but we made it work. Highly recommended.

We couldn't believe how many times we said that the Seaside was the perfect house for us. There were 7 of us, one child of 8 and the rest adults. The kitchen was centralized, large, well stocked and had a grand view which is perfect for a vacation house - lots of good happenings there. The view was spectacular, the hot tub and sauna got used daily with much joy. There was enough space for all of us, the master was just lovely. We recommend it highly.

They enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the sea planes land and take off from across the bay at Rosario Resort. Soaking in the jacuzzi and playing ping pong and basketball were highlights. Thank you for sharing your house!

Wonderful place to stay. All aspects of the home were as advertised or better. This home is well suited for adults and older children. We especially enjoyed the remote location for its peace and tranquility. However, the home is still within a 15 minute drive to restaurants and the town of Eastsound.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly stay there again. The house was very clean, well furnished and very comfortable. We only had two issues (small in the overall scheme of things). (1) The BBQ grill was a mess. We scraped and soaked the grates for several hours to get them clean before using the BBQ - drippings had been baked onto the grates. We did get them clean. (2) There were not many hangars in the closets. Also, the ones available were just wire shirt hangars from a cleaners. Some inexpensive plastic hangars for pants and skirts would be nice. Otherwise, we were quite pleased with the rental.

I am a frequent renter of vacation homes on Orcas and San Juan Island and this house was truly the best home I've ever rented. The views are spectacular. The location is so peaceful and serene. And, the house has been so thoughtfully outfitted, by the owners, with everything one might possibly need. The kitchen was a dream to cook in and the downstairs tv room was a lovely place to end the day. We would love to return to the house ver soon.

Lovely home and very clean and well-maintained. There was an issue with the upper oven not working but Becky, the property manager went over and beyond to find someone to fix it and she prevailed! Kitchen had only the very basics so if you have a particular pan or utensil you must have, bring it along! I would strongly suggest that the guest keylock be outfitted with numbers that you can see. We arrived in the dark and even with a flashlight the numbers were exceedingly difficult to read. We are looking forward to our return!

Our family of 5, three teenage children and my husband and i. the view of this unit is incredible, all windows, every angle is full of beauty in many dimensions. We had room in the house to be alone or together. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen with the top dollar appliances. we used the grill also for a night of local clams and steaks. we enjoyed the walks on the property as well as all the sites on property to journal or read a book. We used the jot tub every-night weather we were relaxing after a hike or chilled after kayaking. The location was close to town and yet felt away from it all. We had the vacation of a lifetime!

The home is secluded, yet not terribly far from conveniences. The views are unbeatable from every single room and of course, the gorgeous deck! The house is well-stocked, and information is clearly provided. Our only issue was that the housecleaner had done a half-hearted job before we arrived, and it showed. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This was our second stay at Seaside. This year mother nature co-operated and the weather during our stay was fantastic. So we were able to enjoy sitting on the deck and enjoy the view as we had champagne brunches and sundown dinners. We enjoyed watching the seaplanes go hand out of Rosario.

What also made our stay so special was that our cousins who have lived in the Seattle area for 17 years were able to join us for part of our visit. It was their first time in the San Juan Islands. They enjoyed the house and incredible views so much that once we arrived at the house, they simply did not want to leave until they absolutely had to do so.

Everything about Seaside is wonderful from the hot tub and fireplaces to the furnishings and comfortable beds. The only suggestion we would have is to inventory the kitchen utensils as a number of things that were in the house during our previous stay were not there this time like a colander, cutting boards, measuring cups and spoons. Also a set of champagne flutes would be a nice addition.

We stayed at the house for a week and had a great time. The kitchen is large and easily accommodated meal prep for two families. Views off the back deck were great and access to all the island activities was easy.

This home and location are exquisite. We shared the home with family & it was wonderful. The road to get there was "rustic", but well worth the drive. The view was incredible, and we spent many hours on the deck taking it in. A dream vacation for sure, we hope to go back.

We enjoyed our stay so much we want to come back every year. This rental way exceeded our expectations. The views were breath taking. The home and the amenities in the home were unbelievable. We really enjoyed our stay as well as the location. Our children loved exploring the grounds and the walkway to the ocean. We made s'mores in the fire pit. We took advantage of the games, grill, sauna and hot tub. We went sea kayaking, visited East Sound, hiked the parks, and loved watching all the wildlife. The drive down the property to the home could have been our favorite part of the stay! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home.

The house was perfect for our family with teens and adult children. The views are incredible, you can just sit on the decks all day and watch the sky and water change, the sea planes land, and when you are very lucky a bald eagle will perch nearby.

We explored the long driveway and the shore at low tide. The firepit, sauna and hot tub were gathering places as well as the kitchen table where we played games and had puzzle sessions.

The kitchen was well-laid out for multiple cooks making family meals. We loved eating on the deck, even when it rained you could hide out under the overhang. Eastsound was about 7 minutes away by car so we could grocery shop and loved the Saturday farmer's market. Moran State Park is about 15 minutes away and great for hiking, lake swimming and admiring the view from Mt. Constitution.

Just a few small issues that could use attention. According to the young adults, the WiFi could use updating. The kitchen drawers and the contents could use attention from the cleaning staff. And the second bedroom down stairs should be brightened up with linens and decor to match the quality of the rest of the home. And it would be great to have use of the family room gas fireplace, we had no method to turn it on.

What a wonderful place! Went for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and could not asked for anything better. The home and all its furnishings were perfect. Overlooking Rosario Resort and the bay made for wonderful moments on the deck. Two Bald Eagles were sitting in trees and flying right next to the deck almost every day. Sleeping arrangements were wonderful. Having both a hot tub and a sauna made the trip extra special. A real fireplace allowed for wonderful evenings of relaxing when it cooled down. I recommend 100%.

Thank you for these kind comments. Hope to see you on a return visit soon!

While our stay at Seaside was during a period of high wind and record rain fall, we really did not mind as the house was a great place to weather the storm, so to speak. To quote my husband, "If we have to be stuck inside, what a great place to be "stuck" in." We enjoyed the warmth of the gas fireplace in the mornings and that of the wood burning one in the evening. The wonderful kitchen afforded us with all we needed to cook champagne brunches and gourmet dinners. When there were breaks in the weather we were able to enjoy the hot tub and the view it affords. The master bedroom and bath were wonderful . . . loved the view from the tub! When the weather lifted, we enjoyed the wonderful view and watching the seaplanes and bald eagles.

We would suggest to anyone renting the property in the future to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle as the road is rough in spots.

Also, a special thanks to the Windermere staff for helping us when we could not find the instructions for the gas fireplace and when the satellite TV went out.

Great house, nice quiet secluded location. Main floor is well set up and kitchen has good range of equipment which was handy. Sadly housekeeping was lacking, sheets were stained/ripped, dresser was broken, fosset did not work in one bathroom and generally felt like it was in need of some care and attention. Also in the second bedroom on the lower level there is a handy sofa bed but be aware that when it is extended for use it hits the bed in the room making it impossible to walk round either bed - not great. Could be a great house with some more tlc - the agency say they are on it so hopefully it will improve

This is a beautiful, well-equipped house with a wonderful view. We enjoyed cooking steaks and fresh salmon out on the deck, seeing deer in the yard, and starfish near the shore. We used the hot tub and the games, took a hike, wandered through the town and had a great dinner at Allium. We would LOVE to come again! Thanks.

The view was fantastic, the location was very private but not too far from westsound where we enjoyed great restraunts and art gallery's. The house was clean and neat and well appointed without personal clutter. We enjoyed ourselves for 8 gorgous days. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Great house, Windermere is great to work with.

The master bedroom could use a comfortable chair and a dresser. For movie nights and sports, the only TV in the house is old and has poor picture quality. The dusty/oily condition of Dolphin Bay Road, while not under the owner's control, is an issue.

Manager's Response

You are right that it was time for an update! When you return, you'll now find a chair in the master bedroom and a new 40" flatscreen TV.

Great house for relaxing (or finishing your book, Phd thesis, etc.). 20 minutes by car to Eastsound, 45 minutes to Olga. Beautifully finished interior, so if your pet make messes or tears things up, you'll want to stay elsewhere. We brought blankets & put them over the couches, just in case our dog tried to jump up on them.

the only problem was there was not the
sleeping arrangement I read there would be; so 2 of us had to sleep on couches
when we believed we would each have a bed to sleep on.

Manager's Response

So sorry that the beds were not as you expected. We will be in contact to make amends.
