About

Orca Overlook sits perched on a hillside overlooking some of the most Orca traveled waters in Haro Strait and the Salish Sea. A brand new large deck, surrounded by trees, gives one the feeling of being in a tree house. After you watch the sunset over Vancouver Island in the distance, move indoors to the cozy living room to stream Fire TV (no satellite reception). The home features large windows that look out over the sea, so bring your binoculars.

The open loft, living room, and kitchen are ideal for enjoying your family vacation together. There are two private bedrooms, one with a comfortable queen-size bed and the other with a full-size bed. A third room has a pull-out queen sofa bed. There are also two full bathrooms (one with shower & one with tub) on the main floor.

The kids and family will definitely enjoy the loft which is set up to be a game area, complete with a round card table and dart board. Downstairs, the well equipped kitchen is complete with a bar counter and bar stools for staying in touch with whoever is doing the meal preparation. Nearby is a dining table for indoor dinner seating. If it is a nice sunny day you may choose to eat out on the deck where there is additional seating under a beautiful green sun umbrella, where evening sunsets abound.

A short walk down the access road leads to a community beach shared by four homes in the area. This property is also adjacent to the West Side San Juan Island County park with its beach for launching kayaks and having a picnic.

Please note that this home is pet friendly but certain breeds are excluded. Please inquire before booking.

This was a comfortable house with a good kitchen and a large deck. Easy walk next door to San Juan County park and only a few miles drive to Lime Kiln. Bed was comfortable, Kitchen well equipped. Would recommend for 4 people although listing allows 6, but 2 would be on a fold out couch. Overall, we look forward to staying here again, and found the management company communicative and professional. House was clean. Stove is a little tricky to figure out the first time, use google if you need to. WiFi worked well at speeds of 25mbps.

Just as pictured! Very well equipped rental with a fantastic view and porch. On the opposite side of the island from town, but we seemed to get better weather. We were able to arrange a kayak tour that started directly from the county park next door. Great communication and support from the property manager.

Thank you

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review. We agree -- Orca Overlook is just like home -- if your home has a water view, is up in the trees, is especially comfortable, serene and relaxing! We hope to welcome you again in the future to a vacation rental home in the San Juan Islands.

This is a stellar property for a getaway. Home had a beautiful view and large wrap around deck facing the water. It was extremely comfortable and bright and had a well equipped kitchen. We hope to plan a return visit.

Manager's Response

Thank you for such a lovely review of your stay at Orca Overlook. It's a cozy Pacific NW style home with a water view like you are up in the trees (which you are!)... and so close to the county park which has easy kayak access and beautiful sunsets... we hope to welcome you to another visit to a vacation rental home in the San Juan Islands in the future.

Beautiful, spacious house with an absolutely stunning view from whole front room and deck. Completely fenced in and safe for dog. Kids loved the dart board in the games room. Orcas showed up and we viewed them from the deck. County park and beach a couple of minutes walk away. All in a really wonderful place to stay on the island,

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your stellar review of Orca Overlook. We agree, the home has an awesome view. You were so fortunate to see the Orcas, and yes the home is so close to the county park which is also so much fun! We hope to welcome you again to a beautiful home in the San Juan Islands!

The views were spectacular and ever-changing. Home was beautiful, well appointed and had more than adequate supplies to prep meals. Deck added lovely outdoor space for AM coffee and eve meals. Sofa bed was large and moved to a third bedroom, leaving loft for art and crafts, etc. It is exactly as pictured. Very clean. We wish the fireplace had worked and that there had been more lamp light at nighttime. No noise from county park and its close presence made beach access easy. 10 stars!!

Wonderful stay. Beautiful view and place was clean and nicely decorated. Wonderfully stocked kitchen tools and nice BBQ.
The only issue was the limited number of TV channels(3).

Manager's Response

Dear guest,

thank you for your review. This is a delightful rental home in a great location adjacent to the westside San Juan Island County Park. In response to your comment about the limited television, the owner has now installed dish network with 190 channels for our guest's viewing entertainment. The problem has been solved!
We look forward to welcoming to the islands again sometime soon.

Best regards, General Manager

We enjoyed Orca Overlook and it was the perfect location for our trip. Our goal was to spend time whale watching. The San Juan county park is close by and we were able to have a wide view of the straight from there. Lime Kiln was also within a few minutes for spectacular sunset pictures. We took quite a few beautiful sunset pictures right off the balcony of Orca Overlook also! There is a good view of Canada, with sparkling lights for maybe Victoria across the strait. The home had all the amenities and conveniences that we could have asked for. Thanks for the spices and tote bag/ we used it to carry our stuff while we toured the island! Lots of nice touches and very clean. Beds were comfortable and plenty of hot water! Wifi was slow, but usable. Our favorite restaurants were Madrona Bar and Grill, Downriggers and San Juan Island Cheese (really good and unique). San Juan Safaris and San Juan Excursions, both were great whale watching companies - they make every effort to see the whales and we did! Pelindaba Lavender Farm is worth a side trip also! We definitely plan to return! Thanks!

The deck and huge windows looking out into the bay and surrounded by magestic trees make this home the perfect spot to relax. Kitchen has everything you want and need. Linens and beds are comfy and good quality. Gas fireplace is nice, but a little noisy. Would definitely stay again.

Manager's Response

Dear Guest - thank you so much for visiting the Islands and choosing Orca Overlook for your accommodations. We appreciate your comments and are glad you enjoyed the stay so much! Our Best, General Manager

A great spot to watch the lights of Victoria, passing ships and eagles.
The kitchen was so well supplied that we cooked most meals with equipment similar to ours at home.
And the home is clean! It felt good and we will return. Lovely spot.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your review - we are glad you enjoyed your vacation and the home! Best, General Manager

Beautiful house on the remote side of the island. Beautiful views of the sound. Although the house is listed as having internet, it is unusably slow (probably fine if you're checking email - but torture if you have to work). Only cell coverage is for Canadian providers.

So if your goal is to "get away from it all" and Look For Whales, this is the house for you!

Manager's Response

Dear Guest - Thank you for choosing to visit the San Juan Islands and for staying at Orca Overlook. We also really appreciate your feedback here. Internet is available on most of the island but just recently is it getting to the point where it is close to mainland speeds but then only in some circumstances/properties. We apologize that you had this experience. We do hope you will return and contact us in the future - please just let us know if you have to work while here and we can recommend houses with faster internet. Best Regards, General Manager

We rented Orca Overlook for a six-night stay on San Juan Island. We had a wonderful vacation here - the views of Haro Strait are amazing (I even saw a whale spout!), and the house is perfect for an extended stay. The decor is a bit dated (along with the appliances), but you aren't staying here for the decor. The deck is the highlight - we saw some spectacular sunsets while enjoying fresh oysters from Westcott Bay Shellfish (which is just a short drive from the house). We also saw several deer and my husband saw an owl fly overhead. We would definitely stay here again!

We had one request for management - we thought that a screen for the sliding door would be great to allow the breezes to come in, without allowing any insects. A very friendly woman from the company stopped over within the hour and installed a screen flap over the door - we were quite impressed with that level of customer service!

we stayed for a week. The only real problem we had was the water pressure. It was not real strong and got worse as the week went...shoud have called..guess they were working on the lines. Very nicely stocked kitchen and home.

We only stayed at this property for 2 nights because our original reservation was for Friday Harbor
we enjoyed the quiet and the great view form the deck.
The house is dated but clean and private

Manager's Response

Dear Guest, thank you so much for choosing to visit the Islands and for staying with us. We also appreciate your feedback here. Orca Overlook is definitely a property that expresses a classic island feel but it is well equipped, very clean and as you note wonderfully private. We're glad you had a wonderful stay and look forward to your return! Best, General Manager
