Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Eastsound - Orcas Island, Overlook at Rosario #243

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

WONDERFUL SUNSETS AND MORNING LIGHT WITH AMAZING VIEWS OVER CASCADE BAY AND ROSARIO RESORT

When visitors arrive at Rosario Resort and Marina, they gaze up toward the exclusive homes set upon the eastern hillside with an envious eye. That is because these ridge line residences focus toward one of the most dramatic views in all of the San Juan Islands. You too can now enjoy this lofty perspective.

You will enter the grounds through a gated garden and wander down terraced steps that lead to the front door. From the entry, your eye will be drawn through the formal living room toward the sweeping views of East Sound, Mt. Woollard, Rosario Mansion and Marina, and the neighboring island and waterways. After you settle in, you’ll find the paneled living room with contemporary seating and a rugged rock-faced fireplace a lovely location for conversation and watching the sunset.

This custom home is exceptionally spacious, with floor to ceiling windows that expand the view into all major rooms. Around the corner from the living room, you’ll find a dining room with antique table. Beyond, a seating area and gas fireplace enhances the kitchen area. Cooks will find the kitchen very well equipped with amenities that include a gas cook top, double oven, and island with stools. The family room, around another corner, features a large TV, DVD player, and sound system. The bedroom wing is on the opposite end of the home. The master bedroom offers a king bed and a lovely en-suite bathroom with glamorous tub and stall shower. There is a second bathroom with shower in the hall that is shared by the two additional bedrooms, both rooms offering queen beds.

You’ll probably spend pleasant hours lounging on the two decks where you can soak up the sunshine, drink in the view, and enjoy a BBQ. All in all, The Overlook at Rosario is the perfect home base for your summer vacation!

_Do note that the hillside on the waterside is fairly steep. Children will require adult supervision when on that side of the home, on the garden side of the home, and when using the child’s playhouse. _

Reviewer Comments:

The Overlook at Rosario boasts a wonderful location, close to Moran State Park and Rosario resort, with gorgeous views of Mt. Wollard, Turtleback Mountain, and East Sound (the body of water, not the town). 2 huge decks span the width of this very large home, so there is tons of space to soak in the view. The property itself has beautiful madrona trees that frame your view, and it's nice to walk in the backyard, though mind the steep drop offs if you have young children. I'm guessing the house was built around 1980, and there are some signs of age and needs of updating. The bathrooms are great - recently updated. The kitchen, however: the microwave oven didn't work during our stay in August 2016. And the gas or electric double oven never worked, either. My wife and I cook a lot of meals when we're on Orcas, so this was a bit of a bummer, but we made do with the 4 burner range + the propane grill on the deck. The management company sent someone out, but they were unable to fix the 2 ovens. After our trip, Windermere made it right by giving us a credit. We have used Windermere/Vacation Doorways for several years, and this was the only time we've had an issue, and they resolved it to our satisfaction. I would recommend this home to a friend, but with the caveat that (assuming you plan to cook a fair amount), you check with the management company prior to make sure these issues have been fixed. The house is very spacious, and for our family of four it was almost too big. I think they say the max occupancy is 6, but even with 6, there would be plenty of room to spread out. Big living room, big den, plus 2 decks. Great spot to enjoy the trails and lakes of Moran State Park, and just 10 min drive to Eastsound.

Everything about this house was perfect. It is an absolutely gorgeous home, which is very beautifully decorated. It has stunning views of Rosario, and the surrounding waters. We loved watching the sea planes take off and land and all of the eagles, which flew by. We loved every minute of our stay!

We had a great time at the house with 6 adults. The views are incredible, the outdoor space is nice, kitchen is great for cooking with a large group, ample living space and nicely updated baths. We really loved being close to Moraine State Park & Rosario so the location was perfect for us.

Reviewer Comments:

We spent 4 glorious days on Orcas Island and The Overlook at Rosario was our “home away from home”. The location was perfect, the house lovely, and the view spectacular. The home is large, comfortable, warm, and had all the amenities we could have hoped for. Though we were hesitant to rent this home because this was the first year the home was available for rental and there weren’t any reviews, our hesitancy was for naught. So…worry not…this house is terrific and a perfect Orcas Island choice. We had a wonderful family reunion at The Overlook at Rosario and hope to return when next we make Orcas Island our destination.
