About

With one eye looking out over a west-facing golden colored sea, and your other on the crackling flickers of flame cast by a cozy fireplace, vacation mode is sure to come easily. Relax and watch the flickering flame and sunlight meet and dance around this spectacular waterfront rental. Large windows with a walk-out deck give the home an infinity pool-like feel. This home provides a 180-degree stunning view all the way to the Canadian Coast Range, perfect for gazing out at passing boats, distant islands, and the ever changing landscape. Sunlight permeates this home throughout the entire day, culminating in a tremendous glistening effect near sunset. The home is staged with beautiful décor, art, and high end finishes which only add do the magnificent layout and location of the home.

Upon entering the home, you are greeted with an eminently long hallway that features a variety of art work. The art is well-lit by the opposite wall of French windows and doors. The end of the gallery-like hallway features the reveille of high ceilings, cozy couches and seating in front of a classic red brick fire place with an Ultra HD smart curve TV with 3D and Blu-ray plus 250 satellite channels. The fireplace creates a warm and cozy atmosphere in the evenings. Next, find a locally made artistic log dining room table and counter seating. The back side of the brick fireplace features a spacious kitchen which also takes advantage of the wall of windows and gorgeous views. The patio doors open up to a walk-out deck where most people choose to enjoy their summer meals. For the chefs in your group, consider taking on the challenge of picking your own fruit from one of the property's many fruit trees and baking a pie for dessert.

The master bedroom is equipped with a king-size, four post bed ideal for sleeping in and gazing out over the water. A small hallway leads to a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination and double sink. A second bedroom with queen bed overlooks gardens through French windows. Both rooms offer Ultra HD smart curve TV’s. The third bedroom is perfect for a small family with its king-size bed and single, boat bed. A pull-out in the boat bed creates a second single bed in the room. In between this room and the kitchen is a second full bathroom. Also for your convenience, high speed internet is available throughout the home

Outside, a stairway leads down to the beach area. Tide pools and beach combing are perfect at low tide. There is also a nice deck area for storing your kayak when the tide rolls in. Guests will enjoy kayaking out and around a small island known as Freeman Island located no more than 300 yards off shore of the property, or to Point Doughty, a bit farther away. The home also features its own mooring ball for those that prefer to keep a boat accessible during their stay. President’s Channel is known locally as prime crabbing & fishing grounds and this in turn draws rich bird life. Eagles are everywhere scouring the dramatic shoreline which at low tide is fascinating to explore.

Young kids will enjoy playing among the grassy hillside fruit trees, and adorable play house. Lavender gardens draw constant butterflies and hummingbirds that only add to the magical setting. Located at the end of a dead-end private road, the property has a secure and quiet feel. Eastsound Village is a 10 minute drive.

NOTE: THIS HOME CAN ONLY BE RENTED IN INCREMENTS OF 7 DAYS ONLY WITH CHECK-IN ALLOWED ON SATURDAY ONLY.

The vacation rental was exactly as described with even better views than you could imagine. The sunsets directly west of us we’re fantastic We saw right out our front door see otters, Eagles, seals and deer walking through our yard. The kitchen is very well-equipped. Our agent at San Juan vacation rentals Kyle answered all my questions very quickly. I give the home and the rental agency all five stars. If you are bringing kayaks make sure they aren’t that heavy as it is difficult to carry them down the stairs preferably inflatable’s.

We have stayed at many VRBO homes on the San Juan Islands but Oceanfront SunBright Le reve was hands down the most beautiful home. It was super clean (we like that you have to remove your shoes in the house) and beautifully decorated. And the western views were breathtaking. We saw otters, seals and bald eagles off the back deck. And every morning and evening, deer would come eat in the front yard. If our travels bring us back to Orcas, we would absolutely rent this home again.

Spectacular location, views, and house - just like the photos. We (4 adults, a 2 queried old and a 3 month old) stayed a week and were very happy with the house, location, and Orcas island experience. The best equipped kitchen including glasses, silverware, dishes, spices, pots and pans, etc that we’ve ever experienced in our many rentals. Great nature, hikes, scenery, kayak, whale watch outing, surprisingly good grocery store. Nice fireplace but would only and no gas starter. Good outside propane grill and play house. Cell coverage is spotty on the island Wi-Fi good at the house and in town. Ferries were good and on time

Very comfortable home. Great location with beautiful water view. One complaint is that the back bedroom smelled very musty, almost like urine. Luckily it was warm weather so able to keep window open which helped.

Manager's Response

Karen, Thank you for your review and mentioning what a truly wonderful water view and access this home provides and that you would recommend it to others. Seeing your review about a odor in the back bedroom, we immediately visited the home and went back several additional times to see if we could detect any negative odors. We could not duplicate what you smelled. The furnace in this home had just been replaced and the HVAC contractor had warned that the new system could give of some odor on an extremely short-term basis. This is the only explanation we could come up with. As any potential guest can see, the reviews for Sun Bright have been nothing but stellar. We must believe it was a one-off type of coincidence. No odors before or after.

Sun Bright's 3 bedrooms were a perfect fit for our family get together with daughter and son-in-law from NYC and daughter from Kansas City. Orcas has lots of activities for a family like ours that includes both marathon runners and some whose idea of a perfect vacation is sitting in a chair with a view and a good book. While the more energetic family members did the hikes up Mt. Constitution and Turtleback others enjoyed the fabulous view and wildlife spotting from the deck. We are all foodies and enjoyed a combination of dinners out at fabulous Aelder and Inn at Ships Bay and King Salmon on the grill with local vegi's and fresh bread from Rose's bakery. The kitchen is very well equipped for serious cooks and the view from the dinning table can't be beat.

We had a fabulous time! The home was beautiful, well appointed and so very comfortable. The view was outstanding, we saw eagles, otters, seals, a deer swimming and then running up our hill. We even saw Orcas off in the distance! It was a hike down lots of stairs to the beach, but very doable and good for the legs. Crabbing wad great and we rented kayaks that were delivered to the house. Great having all my kids and spouses in the same house! Hope to rebook soon! The kids said it was even more beautiful than the pics!

We had a terrific stay at the Sunbright house. It's aptly named. There was one small problem, we couldn't find the waffle maker. I think someone missed took a grilled cheese sandwich maker for a waffle maker. We just made pancakes though, not a big deal.

We had a wonderful time from the moment we arrived. We were greeted by the owner who couldn't have been nicer - giving us several suggestions of how to spend our time. We enjoyed our hike up Mt Constitution as well as Kayaking around the point to watch the harbor seals and porpoises feed. The house is spectacular. Great views of the islands , we especially enjoyed having dinner on the deck and then relaxing over sunset. The house is in perfect condition, impeccably clean and fully equipped for fun! Looking forward to our next visit

Our stay was an exceptional experience! I do believe the view from the deck was the most beautiful one that I have ever experienced from any of the places we have stayed in our travels! The home is lovely and elegantly decorated. We have hopes of returning to rent again some time.

This is a nice property with solitude and a beautiful view. Lots of wildlife. The house is cute and well furnished. The inside feels rather small as a lot of the square footage is in one long/wide hallway but it has a lot of outdoor living space. The house is in very good condition. Beds are comfortable with lots of down pillows. The beach is very rocky and you must stay on the beach area just in front of the property. Ther are tons of tiny crabs, anemones, tiny shrimp, snails down there but it is very difficult to explore because you are crushing them all as you walk. Phone rings daily, solicitors or calls for the owner maybe. We had an issue with TV function, not enough towels, and a mouse inside one of the bedrooms, but the management company responded promptly. Overall, I would highly recommend this property as long as you don't mind close quarters.
