Looking for Orcas Island beachfront, spectacular views, 4+ bedrooms, 3+ baths, and a location within walking distance of town? Not many vacation homes meet this criteria, but North Shore Reef offers all these attributes and more. This spacious and attractive home is simply the perfect choice for family vacations and couples traveling together.

The property is conveniently located only one mile north of Eastsound Village, offering an easy walk to shops and restaurants via a public pathway. When you open the front door, a startling vista of sky, sea, and mountains will greet you through the large picture windows on the waterside of the home. Straight ahead, there is a view of Sucia Island and, in the distance, the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Cascade range can be seen rising above neighboring islands. When the tide is high you may see whales and dolphins as they pass by in the deep water channel, and when the tide is low, the sandy offshore reef emerges from the sea to attract a variety of marine life, including birds, eagles, and otters.

The 3200 square foot residence is designed for casual and comfortable living. The entry, living room, and dining room are oriented toward the waterfront as is the terrace, where you will lounge, BBQ , dine alfresco, and bask in glorious sunsets. A partially fenced lawn with fire pit is on the western side of the property. From the bluff, a stairway connects to the pebble beach where the elements of nature can be appreciated at the shoreline.
Indoors, there is plenty of space for the entire group to cook, dine, and enjoy their time together. Meal preparation takes place in a large, well-stocked kitchen that features contemporary appliances, a work island, and a breakfast nook. The dining room offers seating around an expandable table and you will find a bedroom with a king bed just down the hall on the main level. Adjacent to this master bedroom is a bathroom with shower as well as an office/den equipped with a convertible sofa that is suitable for a child or extra guest. For flexibility, there is a door that enables you to enclose these three rooms into a private suite. A laundry room with extra toilet and sink are also located just off the kitchen on the main level.

Upstairs, overlooking the living room, is a loft with a sectional sofa and TV for watching television or movies. The loft separates two upper bedroom wings. One wing contains a bathroom with tub/shower and bedroom large enough to contain both a queen sized bed and twin/trundle. The additional two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the loft and share a third bathroom with tub/shower. The larger bedroom also contains both a queen sized bed plus a twin/trundle; the smaller offers a queen size bed.

Please note that when more than 10 guests are accepted, an additional fee of $50 per guest per night will apply. We’re sorry that the fireplace is not available for guest use.

"Wonderful Family Reunion~ This property in in a beautiful location on the north shore of Orcas Island. The views are stunning, the rooms are very large, our extended family ranging form 8 months to 67 years all loved our stay and were able to spread out comfortably. There is a big TV/lounge room on the second floor which allowed for different activities to not conflict. My favorite feature was a big double-ended, open sided couch in front of the big north facing window where one could sit side-by-side or facing to read or chat and enjoy the view of the water and islands. A small complaint I had was handled very fairly and amicably by the rental agency. The restaurant “Roses” in towns is a wonderful and delicious spot that accommodated the 8 of us (2 babies) without fuss. Loved this place!!" —Guest from Chico, CA

"A wonderful week! A perfect location for a family gathering. Walking distance to kayaking and whale watching adventures. A pretty easy 1.5 mile walk to "downtown" Eastsound for dining and shopping. It was more pricy that what we typically pay for our family gathering at various west coast locations but could not beat the view, there was plenty of room to spread out and the house was well equipped including a yummy welcoming home-made quick bread." —Guest from Elk Grove, CA

The Perfect Spot

My family of 4 spent 5 days here with another family of 4 and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. The location is fantastic, close to Eastsound and right on the water. We had deer come through the yard, watched otters playing while we ate dinner and saw bald eagles. The house has everything we needed and the layout of rooms was perfect. I highly recommend this place! —Guest, SANTA BARBARA, California

Adak Reunion

This was the second of our houses. We loved the spaciousness and the ability for the eleven of us to eat our dinners together. The deck was perfect for sitting and reminiscing in the evening before dinner. The people who stayed in this house lived it. Access to this house is great. It’s equipped to accommodate a large group and it dies so easily. The view is perfect. We got a total feel for the Island. Great vacation. Thanks to Sarah fro Isla Vida Group for helping us organize fun excursions for each day. Loved it —Guest, Tequesta, FL
