About

CUSTOM ORCAS ISLAND WATERFRONT HOME WITH HOT TUB, 3+ BEDROOMS, 4 BATHS, NEAR EASTSOUND.

This appropriately named vacation home faces northwestern skies that become a brilliant spectacle of gold, orange, and purple at days’ end. This glorious panorama is yours to behold when you stay at Sunsets over the Salish Sea. From the vantage point of the seaside hot tub or dining terrace, sundown can be a very special event indeed!

But this beautiful home has much more to offer than the lovely water view. As you enter the property through a gated drive and lushly landscaped grounds, the substance becomes apparent. Sunsets was designed by a premier local architect and the quality of construction is superb. Completely furnished top to toe with new high end products, this property will satisfy the most discriminating guests.

The interiors are customized with quality woodwork and cabinetry, a dramatic stone fireplace that stretches across a wall, and signature window seats tucked into cozy bedroom nooks. On the main level, the great room features gorgeous hardwood floors, gleaming wood ceilings, and an open kitchen with granite counters, bar seating, and stainless steel appliances. A small den with a TV separates the living room from the master bedroom. For guest audiophiles, a sound system with a wonderful set of speakers and a variety of music options is also available.

The master bedroom features a desk, second rock fireplace, king size bed, and window seat that might serve as a sleeping space for a child. The en-suite bath is accented with slate tile and offers a large dressing area, dual vanities, private facilities, and walk-in shower. On the opposite side of the main level, the hall leads to a washer/dryer, a guest bathroom with stall shower, and to a bedroom set up with TV and deluxe sleeper sofa with a pop-up section that creates a full-size queen bed. This room also offers a separate exterior entry from the courtyard.

Two additional guest rooms are upstairs, each with their own en-suite bathroom with tub/shower. One of the rooms offers a queen size bed, the second bedroom has a trundle bed with pull out twin bed. Both of these rooms also feature twin-bed size window seats for extra sleeping versatility.

Outdoors on the waterside, you’ll find the propane BBQ, the hot tub, a flagstone terrace, a fire pit, and a stepdown deck area with lounge chairs and a dining table. The home is also enviably located within an easy bike ride of Eastsound Village, shops and restaurants.

Waterfront, 3+ bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, hot tub, new furnishings, plus located near town - Sunsets over the Salish Sea has everything that vacation guests are looking for!

This was our second year staying at Sunsets over the Salish Sea. The second time was even better than the first. We couldn't get enough of the gorgeous sunsets on the lovely deck and porch! Our children loved making s'mores in the outdoor fire pit while we watched a bald eagle land in the tree overhead. What an experience!

We loved the house, which was comfortable and well-appointed, but it's a little misleading--we really thought we had rented a home with water access. It is hard to find water access nearby--the beach down the street is very small.

This house is majestic inside and out and we wish we were still there ! Sunrises and sunsets every day, fireplace and outdoor fire pit every evening
The hot tub has the best view ever , eagles flying overhead on the deck .
We had stellar dinners with local oysters and seafood and the music system was perfect. We loved being back on Orcas Island with our best friends and would recommend this home and location to everyone ! Thank you for having us in your magical spot.

Great house, property and location....fabulous views out of alll windows, nice walk to Eastsound, great kitchen, decks and space.
ONLY complaint is a couple of mattresses could be improved on...but our time there was so filled, that we all collapsed once we hit the beds.
Stunning house and fabulous stay.

We rented this home for a family reunion to celebrate my wife's birthday. The home was perfect! The location is outstanding. The home was very clean, well cared for, fully equipped and met all our expectations. We had a catered birthday dinner for 10 on the deck looking out over the Salish. The kitchen worked well for the catering crew. It was a perfect evening.

We were a family of six persons - Grandma, Grandpa, our daughter, her husband, and their two kids ages 9 and 11. We all loved having separate bedrooms and bathrooms, outdoor sitting and dining areas, and the hot tub. Sunsets and sunrises were amazing. The view from the living room and kitchen were mesmerizing. Kitchen was stocked well with cooking gear. The gas BBQ was wonderful. Saw a bald eagle and a woodpecker by the house. The best family vacation we have ever had.

We had a terrific stay at Salish Sea. The house is spacious and nicely equipped. We were particularly impressed with the kitchen, as we're not used to good gadgets, knives, small electrics, etc. when we've rented vacation houses in the past. The house's best feature is its proximity and views to the water. We enjoyed all of our evenings eating on the deck, watching bees dart in and out of the lavender, and marveling at the beauty of the water.

We asked for views and got so much more. A beautiful home with beautiful gardens. This is a great place a group of friends or families with adult children as the bedrooms have private bathrooms. The home is very well maintained and pretty close to town. We rented bikes for the week it was an easy ride to most places.

We had a wonderful stay in this Waterfront home. Beautiful views and property. We took advantage of the hot tub and were so impressed with the beautiful landscaping around the house. The interior craftsmanship is impressive. We had one issue with a need for more bedding for the fold out couch which was taken care of quickly by the property management. This is a fabulous spot to visit with friends and family or just sit by ones-self and contemplate the beautiful world in front and around you.

This was the best vacation rental experinece our family has ever had and we have had many, including our own wonderful vacation home on a fine Minnesota lake. We appreciated the many details of design and landscape that made this place exceptional. We have a chef in our family and he enjoyed the kitchen, as we enjoyed his cooking! The deck was the icing on the cake. My fmily vacation home is just 3 doors down so it felt like coming home only better! The weather was cool but cooperative- out of the southern prevailing winds.THANKS FOR SHARING THIS HOME!

We had really high hopes for this house and our family vacation on Orcas. From the minute we drove in on the first day and saw the view from the house, we said "Wow, this is going to be incredible!" The house is very thoughtfully appointed with high quality choices throughout. It also feels like a home without being cluttered. It's location was also perfect - close enough to activities to be a short drive, and far enough away to feel remote and in nature. If we return to Orcas, we will book this house.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest - Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your visit to the Islands. We also appreciate the review but are concerned that maybe you intended to click 5's instead of 1's? Your review overall seems very positive.

We hope you will return again and give us an opportunity to show you other properties that may offer more of what you are looking to experience.

Best,

We traveled to Orcas Island for a week in June with our two kids, ages 9 and 13, plus both sets of grandparents. This property was perfect for us!

Pros:
space for 4 bedrooms with their own bathrooms for privacy and good sleep
The deck has the most gorgeous view
Sap not an issue as we read in previous reviews, fell tree actually opens view
Master site a true sanctuary
Hot tub a relaxing extra
Quiet road with easy access to east sound and activities on both sides of the island

Cons:
Kitchens such a beautiful space and such fun to cook in! However, it needs an overhaul in terms of how space is used and what cooking utensils are available and in good form.
4th bedroom with foldout tight for two people unless they're kids

Manager's Response

Dear Guest - thank you for visiting the Islands and staying with us. We also appreciate you taking the time to post this review, which overall is very positive. We take to heart your input on the house, cooking utensils, etc. While it is true we can't adjust the layout of a house, we can make sure that our properties are well equipped and we are doing so. We hope you will return and spend another marvelous vacation with us in the Islands. Best Regards, General Manager

This home is well equipped and beautifully decorated. You can tell the owners really care about this property and the management company handled all teansactions well. My only suggestion is that renters be warned about the pine sap. The trees drip on everything and if it gets on clothes it doesn't wash out.

This home was absolutely beautiful and the views were incredible. We would definitely stay here again.

The location of the home was perfect - quiet and secluded but close enough to Eastsound that you could walk.

The kitchen was stocked with so many staples for cooking - salt, pepper, etc. We have stayed in homes on Orcas Island before that had nothing in the kitchen so this was a pleasant surprise. It really felt like a home. There were so many great books to read in the house - unfortunately, we didn't have time to read!

There were a lot of bugs in the house (and we didn't leave the doors open, etc). We had flies (and I couldn't find a fly swatter), gnats, spiders in the house all week. There was so much tree sap on the deck by the outside dining table that we never enjoyed a meal outside.

The hot tub outside was great and was in the perfect location. Do wish it had been a little cleaner, though.

All in all, this is definitely the nicest house we have stayed in while on Orcas and we would love to stay here again.

Beautiful views and spacious home for family vacation.

We were very happy with the home and location overall. The major disappointment was that the upstairs air conditioning did not work. New ac was on order. The nights were cool enough that with windows opened we were comfortable. We have family members with allergies and it would have been nice to have advance notice that the ac was not working upstairs.

Home was clean but noticed cobwebs on the kitchen countertop/cabinets and kitchen floor needed to be swept. Only one washcloth in master bath.

Loved the well-equipped kitchen. Hot tub was great!

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for choosing the Islands and for staying with us. We also appreciate your feedback here and are disappointed that we weren't able to get the AC in quickly enough for your visit. The issue of course has been remedied at this point. We do hope you will consider visiting the Islands again and contacting us to assist you in your vacation needs. Best Regards, General Manager

We just returned from spending a glorious week at this property. The home is in wonderful shape and has amazing views. The only drawback is the amount of sap that drips from the large middle tree. Guests should be warned. We got sap on our shoes, clothes and bodies. It made sitting outdoors not as pleasant.

We had a fantastic vacation week and rental experience. The house location could not have been better, quiet, secure, and right on the water to take advantage of seeing eagles right in our own tree, sea otters, and beautiful sunsets. The house was clean and comfortable for the five of us. We used the deck several times, the barbeque, and the hot tub a couple times. We all loved the collection of books and made us wonder what the career is of the homeowners! Two small issues, after searching,we actually found the binoculars on our last evening; they were in a black case, sitting on the black counter!!! We would have loved to have those earlier in the week, even two sets. Second, the TV room seemed to have many spiders and odd bugs - - we did not spend much time in there!

This is our second time renting this lovely vacation home and again we were extremely pleased with the location, the layout (which is perfect for two families) and the fact that you are able to take a long, safe walk into town. Disappointed that once again there wasn't any comfortable laying out and reading deck furniture or an umbrella to protect oneself from the sun.

The home is beautifully furnished with a wonderful layout, is clean and in a great location. We had a wonderful time and also enjoyed the hot tub. It would enhance the view even more if the shrubbery obscuring the view could be cut back, if possible. I would also place a couple of lounge chairs on the back deck. There is no place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view, other than a straight-backed dining chair. We had an issue with working the grill on the first night, so the management company sent someone right out, which was great.

The property was well located and clean.
Apparently there had been a storm several days before our arrival, and the exterior had a lot of debris,downed tree and branches. The Hot Tub was locked for the 1st 4 days of our arrival. The do not use signs in the living spaces was a little disarming.( example: DO NOT REMOVE THE TABLE CLOTH IN THE DINING ROOM BECAUSE THIS IS A VERY EXPENSIVE TABLE, DO NOT USE THE FIRE PLACE IN THE BEDROOM,ETC.).
The kitchen was poorly equipped for any serious cooking (NO BLENDER,FOOD PROCESSOR OR JUICER),There was an iron..but of very poor quality and difficult to use. We enjoy a clean space and would have appreciated having a vacuum. I believe we left the property cleaner and in better shape than when we arrived and should have the entire cleaning deposit refunded.

We had an extraordinary experience! The kids squealed with glee when they entered, and my mom whimpered just a few hours later, "I don't want to leave!" The house was gorgeous and impeccably designed. We wanted the floorplan to see if we could ever build a house like it. Our favorite was the deck, yard, hot tub, and of course the majestic views. Flawless cleanliness and amenities. A truly fancy experience. Thank you for a great vacation!

This home and the surrounding grounds/view was absolutely beautiful! The house is on a very secluded street and very quiet but close enough to Eastsound to walk if you want. Our family very much enjoyed our stay at the house and are looking forward to (planning) returning again in the future. We loved Orcas Island and our stay at Sunsets Over Salish.
