About

WESTSIDE ORCAS ISLAND WATERFRONT HOME WITH A GREAT VIEW AND POCKET BEACH Located past Deer Harbor, on the west side of the island facing Sidney, British Columbia in the distance, you'll find this wonderful vacation rental home. Imagine sun sparkling on the waters just outside the windows, amazing sunsets, views of neighboring islands, both near and far, the activity of boats and ships heading north and south, the call of seabirds, sightings of seals or possibly even a passing Orca…that’s the atmosphere you’ll enjoy when you stay at Sunset Cove This home has a true Island feel – it’s not pretentious, just tasteful, comfortable, and cozy. The kitchen and bathrooms have been attractively upgraded, and there’s a large deck where you can dine and unwind listening to the soothing sounds of the waves.

On the main level, there's a well-stocked kitchen with Viking cooktop, Sub-Zero fridge, and an oven with convection cooking. Also on this main level are the master bedroom with a lovely king bed and a second bedroom with a full bed and single trundle below. The two main level bedrooms share a large bathroom with dual vanities. Down a flight of stairs off the living room is a second bathroom and another bedroom with a queen memory foam mattress sleeper sofa and the laundry room which has an extra fold-up twin trundle bed. In this lower area there’s also a desk, and large screen TV with DVD, and the laundry. With a private entrance, this lower area can become a second master suite or provide a private retreat for a teenager.

The beautiful pocket beach just below the home is accessed with a steep ladder-type stairway built into the bank. As there is a significant drop from the top of the bank to the beach below, recommend children are supervised if outside.

The house exceeded all our expectations. We were astonished and delighted at the view. The directions provided were accurate and the house was very clean and well furnished. We appreciated all of the thoughtful courtesy items provided so we did not have to rush out and get supplies. We had local visitors everyday - river otters, harbor seals, bald eagles, and humming birds. We had a great time and would definitely return.

My friends and I had a wonderfully relaxing weekend on Orcas Island. After full days of exploring the Island's beauty, we barbecued and ate on the deck while watching the sunset. We ventured onto the beach to explore tide pools and hiked turtleback mountain.

Some friends and I wanted a bit of a getaway. We had a lovely time relaxing, enjoying beautiful views, and watching sealife from the windows!

We had a fantastic few days at Sunset Cove. The house is very comfortable for five people and well equipped. We carried our kayak down the steep staircase to the private beach and went exploring over to Jones Island, and were followed by seals and saw porpoises. The February weather was fairly cold, with snow here and there and blocking the road to Mt Constitution but we had rain only 1 day out of 5, and at times the sun made it feel quite warm. We recommend the hikes to Ship Rock and Turtle Head for the beautiful views. In the house, the downstairs room was a good den for the kids. It was nice to have Netflix. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and clean. The reservations team communicated well and warned us about possible snow which was nice. Overall a great week and welcome change of pace.

Manager's Response

Thank you for this positive and thorough review of your stay at Sunset Cove. We did indeed have an unusual snowy and cold February, and we are so happy you took advantage of the beautiful natural setting and enjoyed your kayak and hikes. We look forward to welcoming you again to the San Juan Islands!

Marginal. We made the best of a bad situation. As storm hit the area the night before. Tree branches were strewn along the road and the property's 4-wheel required driveway. There were no lights to identify the house as we came in at night. The property had a light pole that did not work. I notified the property managers that we had to clear the drive way to get inside. They said, "sorry" and did nothing more.
So, we made the best of our Christmas despite the useless property managers, their incessant warning signs around the house, and the added fees.

Manager's Response

The day before this guest arrived, winds in excess of 60MPH hit the Islands along with severe rain. The guest let us know that there were tree limbs down on arrival. He had dealt with them and did not request any assistance for this or any other problem. He simply wanted us to know the condition on arrival. We provided our apology for the storm damage and any inconvenience this caused. He indicated the house was functioning normally when I spoke with him. The driveway to this home completely passable with 2 wheel drive vehicles. It is possible the severe rain compromised the roadway, but our housekeeping staff that serviced the home after guest departure, used two-wheel drive vehicle with no reported problem. This home is located in a rural area where no street lights exist. The guest did not indicate any issue finding the home which has address numbers at the entry to the driveway. It is possible that the front door light may have been off, which would be our error because we leave them on for arriving guests. There was no further request for services from the guest. Warning signs are about conserving water, or instructions on how to operate appliances or home components. I am sorry the guest found them obtrusive. I would ask potential future guests to take this review in context with the five other perfect reviews for this property and our services. The only fees on this reservation were a 3% credit card charge, departure cleaning, and a purchased damage waiver. VRBO adds their own charges to reservation originated through their website. Book direct and save these charges. General Manager.

We enjoyed our short visit. The house had everything we needed. The Island is beautiful. Only one thing stood out in our minds as needing attention. The white rug is lovely but it was raining and muddy outside and we did everything we could to not leave any tracked mud into the house; we always wipe Sophie's feet before she comes in. Still....hmmm. Anyway it was a beautiful location, the view and the Sea Otters - !!! loved it.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your lovely review of Sunset Cove during your recent stay. We certainly understand your challenges with that light carpet! We do appreciate your remarks about the beauty of the location, the view which is superb, and we are glad you got to see Sea Otters! We would love to welcome you again to a vacation rental home in the San Juan Islands!

This rental is ideal for those who want an idyllic Island retreat. The expansive ocean views are truly breathtaking, get ready to see an impressive assortment of sea animals and stunning sunsets. The gourmet kitchen is well stocked and a dream to use, there is also a barbecue on the deck if you feel like grilling with a stunning backdrop. The basement is ideal for older kids and they absolutely loved the smart tv and PlayStation. This is an inviting, spacious, perfectly stocked with great attention to detail, nicely maintained rental. Highly recommended! Would book again in a heartbeat.

This home had great views of the water and many other islands. The westerly view provided amazing sunset views every night. The location is very private and remote, which we loved. 10-15 minutes to the ferry terminal and about 20 minutes to Eastsound. The beach access was by a steep ladder and was fun climbing down to the rock beach. Otters and sea lions visited every day. We had 5 people and we were very comfortable. Plenty of room. The place felt very new and was clean. Great hiking nearby at Turtleback Mountain. We can’t wait to go back and stay at the same location.

overall, it's a good place to stay with nice view, but do found several issues:

we planned for 3 bed rooms, but it turns out only have 2 bed rooms with one sofa bed downstairs. and heater on first floor not working, also dishwasher not working and we got notice when we arrived not when we book this property.

it has wifi but no internet or cable.

the stairs to access the beach is completely not maintained, "you are on you own risk to use it"
