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 as to breeds and associated pet fees.

"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." —Guest from Portland

"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!" —Lori E from Milwaukee, WI

Peaceful and beautiful retreat

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. —Recent Guest, Olympia, WA

Beautiful house with nice kitchen and a great deck.

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. —Lachlan C., Seattle, WA
