Beautiful, secluded home w/ bay views - watch the sunset from your deck

Take a tranquil vacation in the San Juan Islands with this spacious and gorgeously designed home. Featuring a huge, west-facing deck and an impressive wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that gaze out to the sound, this exquisite rental surrounds you with the spectacular beauty of the Pacific Northwest at every turn.

This home is located on the horseshoe-shaped Orcas Island, the largest of the remote San Juan Islands. You'll be three miles from the village of Eastsound, whose historic streets are lined with charming cafes and art galleries, along with a scenic harbor where you can sign up for a sea kayak tour or whale watching expedition. If you prefer to stay on dry land, Moran State Park boasts 38 miles of hiking trails and a sweeping view of the entire archipelago from the summit of Mt. Constitution.

When you're not out exploring 'the Gem of the San Juans,' kick back and relax in the comfort of this elegant home. If you're here in the summer, head out to the enormous deck, where you can grill some burgers on the BBQ and bask in the peaceful views of East Sound as the sun sets in the west. When the weather turns cold, curl up inside in front of the wood stove with a good book or a board game, or use the free WiFi to stream a movie on your laptop.

No matter what time of year you visit, this lovely rental is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Book your reservation today!

*Please note that four-wheel drive is required to reach this home at all times.

The view across the sound is beautiful throughout the day through the almost floor to ceiling windows in the living room and the large kitchen window. Sunset is spectacular! The kitchen is so well equipped from vegetable peeler to stock pot to baking pans! Each room was decorated with style making it feel just like home! Lovely!

Beautiful home. Outstanding view. Clean and comfortable. Private, very quiet. Road to it is not to bad if you have all wheel drive.
Mark F. Aug 2022
The owner obviously has great taste and the home was very well decorated and well kept. It was very clean. The sunsets each evening of our three day stay were different but beautiful.

I would suggest adding miniblinds to the west facing windows as the warm weather did lead to some warm times in the living room and MBR, but this was manageable. Overall we would definitely recommend Sunsets Over Water as a great place to get away from the bustle of the city.

The house has plenty of room for six. It’s beautiful. The view from the deck and from inside through the wall of windows is just spectacular. Would definitely stay again.

Breathtaking views. A remote, peaceful location with a 5-10 min drive to Eastsound. Very good appliances.
A holiday home with a lot of personal memorabilia left by the owners. Bring an eye mask - no curtains for 2 of the 3 bedrooms. Nothing to shade from the sunlight during the day, which made eating dinner unbearable. Would benefit from updated visitor book (recycling?), more cutlery, glasses and mugs.
Manager response:
Hi, Lucy! Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are updating the information in all homes and tidying up the binders. Hopefully we get to host you again!

My family and I had a great time at Sunsets Over Water! The view was spectacular, and the location was close to everything on Orcas Island (while being super quiet and secluded at the same time!). I typically get very scared on uphill gravel drives, but this one wasn't bad. Definitely have an AWD while staying here. We utilized all the games, puzzles, and additional amenities this cabin had to offer. I worked from home a few days during our stay and the wifi was great! Would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Orcas.
Camille H. Jun 2022
We loved this cabin. It was clean and had everything we needed. The view was spectacular. The secret garden and paths behind the home were so charming. We hope to visit again next year!
Linda M. Jun 2022
This cabin was in a perfect secluded getaway area with a great view of the other islands. The area is very quiet. The cabin itself is so cute and well done. The washer and dryer was a godsend for a family with two kids!

The location of the cabin is very close to the Eastsound “downtown” , so it allowed for the ability for a breakfast or dinner if you didn’t want to cook.
Roslan S. Jun 2022
Doesn’t get better in terms of peace and quiet. Views are amazing from deck, living room and one of downstairs bedrooms. Nice to have a sauna. Very comfortable bed. Well stocked kitchen. Limited toiletries. The drive up is narrow and AWD does provide more confidence, but can be done with a 2WD vehicle.
Wendy B. May 2022
The house was very accommodating and comfortable! We didn't see a TV or screen to stream so we read or explored Eastsound and Doe Bay and Mt Constitution. Everything was close by or not far so travel was minimal. The restaurants were excellent! As long as you have all wheel drive, you can make the drive to the house, even the driveway. Bring your own matches or lighter for the fireplace and the trick to keeping that burning was to leave the door ajar about an inch; otherwise, without a damper, the fire goes out. Also - the garbage disposal does not work. We would stay here again! Loved it!
Manager response:
We appreciate you choosing to stay with us, Wendy. Maintenance is taking care of the fireplace and garbage disposal. We appreciate you letting us know about these problems so we can address them. Hopefully we get to host you again someday!
JOE M. Jul 2021
The house was very private and peaceful. Some of the reviews said the road was 4 wheel drive only but not true. You just need to be a good driver that knows how to use momentum to get up the driveway. The view is fantastic and it is so quiet.
I highly recommend this home.
Chris B. Jul 2021
We really enjoyed staying here. It's big and comfortable, up the hill in the woods, and just minutes from town. The living room area can get pretty warm in the afternoon, but you can open up all the windows and doors to let the breeze through. The road was totally manageable, it was really that last little turn up the driveway where the AWD was needed. The location is great and I'm sure we'll come back again.
Steve B. Jun 2021
Sunsets Over Water was a beautiful setting. The steep roads to get there were not made clear. The unit itself was lovely. However there is no broadcast television. There is a TV and video play. They did have internet. The kitchen was way short on drinking glasses, but everything else was pretty much as advertised.
Manager response:
Hi Steve, thank you for your feedback! We apologize for any inconveniences caused due to the steep roads. For this home, in particular, we do require a four-wheel drive all year round. We have reached out to our listings team to ensure this information is listed for future guests to be aware of the road conditions. Thank you again for your review, we are happy to know your enjoyed your stay!
Liane A. May 2021
The view from this peaceful spot is truly special. The home is quite comfortable and the drive up is on a well-maintained gravelled road. It is very steep and narrow in places but really not difficult to manage. Someone said the beds were hard. I don’t know why. We found the main bedroom very comfortable. The kitchen supplies are in need of an upgrade, however they were sufficient for cooking. We also really enjoyed the sauna. Altogether a wonderful place to stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Liane. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement. We will pass your comments to the owner for consideration, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Sue D. May 2021
This home is lovely, quiet, and I'd like to live there full time. Perfect wind-down place. All we needed was to bring food. WiFi connection is better than my own home.
Francesca R. Jan 2021
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was cozy with the fire and beautiful view.
If you plan to cook, I recommend bringing some kitchen essentials like a cast iron pan and some sharp knives. There were a few things I wish I had from my kitchen.
The house was very clean and the wifi worked great!
Jessica D. Dec 2020
Loved the house and the view, but was some of the most uncomfortable furniture.

View is amazing, house is adorable and the lot is very private. Lovely place to relax
Jesse T. Sep 2020
This is a lovely home to relax and take in the island landscape. The sauna was such a wonderful luxury during quarantine. I highly recommend this home for travelers.
Daniel R. Jul 2020
This cabin was very cool. Good amenities, very clean, and exceptionally well maintained. While there is a TV on premises we found ourselves more interested the beautiful view— we saw Canada in the distance, which was bittersweet given their decision to shut down the border. The town of Olga was a pretty big disappointment however. It didn’t feel safe. Next time I hope that they have that issue resolved. Would definitely book again!
Pat S. Aug 2019
Enthralled with the view from this well kept, well equipped home! Rating would be 5 star + if the beds were more comfortable.
Adam C. Aug 2019
The property was nice enough and had a great view. But it was very difficult to find, the beds were hard as a rock, and there’s no air conditioning, which is challenging in August. Not worth the nightly expense and additional fees.
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed your time at this cabin, Adam. All of our fees are disclosed at the time of booking and we encourage guests to call into our 24/7 Guest Service line with any questions about the cost of their reservation. We hope to impress you in the future.

The view
Michael D. Apr 2019
Best place to stay for a romantic get away or you and your family. Very peaceful and private location. Wish I would of stayed a few extra days.
Jean J. Nov 2018
We loved the location! It was 30 mins from the ferry and secluded so a great get away but close enough to get on a ferry and do some day trips to different islands. The place was very clean and comfortable. We made a fire every night. Used the bbq for dinner one night. Would come back again.
Jaremy R. Oct 2018
We enjoyed our stay here and had beautiful sunsets every night.

The road was a little rough getting up, per other reviews, but not too bad, honestly. Just a one way dirt road at times.
Joan C. Oct 2018
This view was wonderful. The home was outstanding. The stars at night were amazing and we did the entire island by trails and car.... Will be back!!!
Ellyn M. Sep 2018
The home is very clean and contained everything we needed for cooking breakfasts and dinners. The view is incredible. The deck and gas grill were much appreciated. Bathrooms are large and modern. It’s a very comfortable accommodation for 6 adults. Would definitely stay here again!
Brian K. Aug 2018
If you want to be close (15 minute drive) to town and Moran State Park (5 minutes) but in the middle of the woods overnight and in the morning for coffee on the deck this is the place!
Jacqueline S. Aug 2018
Very quiet and roomy. Well equipped. Sunsets were great.
Angie S. Jul 2018
It was very relaxing to come back and just look out the window at the views. We were lucky enough to enjoy a sunset. House met our needs for our trip.
Anne D. Jun 2018
I'm glad we had 4-wheel drive to get to the house but the road is in good condition and the view was absolutely amazing. So relaxing to be there and Orcas Island is beautiful.
Karen M. May 2018
The house was perfect in every way. Comfortable, cozy, well stocked, lots of comfy sleeping options, and close but not too close to town. And the view was magical.
Kimberly K. Apr 2018
We had such a great time at this vacation home! There were endless opportunities to explore in the woods and enjoy this home. The view was stunning and the evening light was beautiful as we could watch the sun set. Would definitely recommend this. You will want to make sure your car can get up to this home though-we have a van and almost didn't make it up-four wheel drive would be ideal. We had a van and almost didn't make it up the first event when the roads were damp.
The views are worth the price. I'd like to return in the fall if it's available.
Leah F. Mar 2018
Thank you for sharing your comfortable home with beautiful view.
