What Past Guests Are Saying
Peace and Quiet
We enjoyed staying at your lovely home so much. Rosario Heights offers beautiful views and is close to Moran State Park, Mt. Constitution, Kayaking facilities and just plain going on a walk a bout. You can also just enjoy staying indoors as we did because it was a bit rainy while we were there. The views out of the many windows throughout the home are beautiful. The home is spacious and airy and warm and cozy all at the same time. We had everything we needed as the home is so well equipped. I mostly enjoyed the peace and quiet that just takes you away to a good place and promotes wonderful sleep. We hope to come back again and again.
Fabulous and relaxing.
I stayed at Rosario Heights with my husband and parents. It is a clean, spacious, beautiful place with a wonderful water view from the deck. The house has absolutely everything that you need for a self catering holiday. It was lovely to have the dogs with us, the dog run was very handy.
The house is very close to Moran State Park and The Rosario Resort so if you like hiking or going to the spa they're both nearby:) And you really can feed the deer from your hand right outside the front door.
The ad mentioned new furnishings but the living area furniture was not new, and the large comfy arm chair was worn through. For us, this did not detract from the stay at all as the chair and sofa were clean and very comfortable. I suppose it depends on how picky a traveler you are but overall the rental is fantastic and feels like a home

Hi Caron, Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to let us know you had a great time!! And YES we are aware of that arm chair. We actually bought a new replacement chair last month and we will finally be back there in two weeks to deliver it. Thanks again!! Rick & Alexandra
Beautiful home! Very open and lovely views! Open concept which was easy to get my daughters wheelchair around with no problems.
Very tastefully decorated and everything you will need is provided!
The owners were a pleasure to work with and the rental process was easy! Would highly recommend for about any occasion! Thank you very much for opening up your home to us!

Hello Tracy and Jena,
Thank you so much for your very nice comments. We are VERY HAPPY you had a great time and hope you will come back and visit beautiful Orcas Island in the near future. Rick & Alexandra
Beautiful home in a gorgeous setting
This house is everything the website claims, and more! We were amazed at how clean and welcoming it is, and the view really is wonderful. Despite being "dog friendly" there was absolutely no pet odor. Our dachshund loved the private dog yard off the deck, and we loved not having to leash him to let him outside. Moran Park is very close (walking distance) and the drive to Mt. Constitution was short and pleasant. (We did have to walk the last mile due to snow, but it was a beautiful walk.) The kitchen really is fully equipped, unlike some other vacation rentals we're stayed in. All in all, one of the best vacation rentals ever. Thank you so much for letting us stay!

We are very happy you enjoyed yourself at our vacation home!! We appreciate you taking the time to let us know and hope you will stay with us again. Thanks again, Rick and Alexandra
Our second stay was as great as the first!
My husband, dog and I stayed here last year for our honeymoon. We loved it and vowed to come back. We did--for our first anniversary--and we intend to make an annual tradition out of it. I'm writing this on our last afternoon here and I'm sad that we're leaving tomorrow. The view is amazing, regardless of weather. We've watched storms roll in from the coziness of inside and bald eagles, sunsets and deer from the deck. The house is clean and stocked with anything you could need. Our dog loves it too and it's so nice to have the convenience of a fenced area for him. There are games, puzzles, movies and music at the house so you don't have to pack all that with you. There's plenty to keep you entertained but we spend time just looking out at the water, sipping wine and relaxing unless we're hiking. The hiking in nearby Moran State Park (and elsewhere on the island) is great with a variety of easily accessible trails. If that's not your thing, Eastsound is just 10 minutes away with restaurants, little shops and a full grocery store. The owners have been very easy to deal with and have obviously done a lot to make their home welcoming. We can't wait until we return next year!
a beautiful, peaceful retreat
My family (2 adults, 9-year-old, and dog) spent 4 very happy days here in late December. For us, the house was perfect! The gorgeous view sets the tone - but in addition, a wonderful layout, generously-stocked kitchen, enclosed dog run, and fantastic selection of movies, puzzles etc made us all feel welcome, and enabled us to fully relax and recharge. The proximity to Moran State Park is also fantastic! We enjoyed several spectacular hikes, easily accessible from the house. The owners were wonderful to deal with, even following through to locate and return a small and seemingly-insignificant item we had left. The house is perfectly clean and well-maintained. Overall, this place is a gem!

THANK YOU for taking the time to provide a review of your vacation experience. We are very happy your family had a great time and hope to hear from you again!!

Our stay in this home was comfortable, relaxing, and quiet - exactly what we had been looking for. The home is beautiful and very clean, with a view of the sound that's out of this world. Several deer and a bald eagle highlighted our visits to the yard and deck, and we loved watching the ferries, sailboats, and water planes come and go in the distance. The owners are extremely nice, and even granted us a special request that made our stay an even better experience. I would recommend a getaway to this home to anyone!

Hello Gail- THANK YOU for your kind words. We are happy you had a nice relaxing time and look forward to hearing from you again. Enjoy the rest of your Summer. Thanks again, Rick and Alexandra
St. Helens, Or
Heaven on Earth
First off I have to agree with all the reviews that state "the pictures do not do this home justice". My wife and I rented this home with my brother and his wife for just a weekend get away. We were all so pleasantly surprised how spacious, cozy and beautiful this home is. The home has wi-fi, phone, and satellite tv, all amenities we chose not to use, but rather enjoy the quiet and the expansive views. Our Chow Chow Milo loved sitting on the porch and taking in the sounds of the wildlife and the feeling the cool breeze. The owners are completely down to earth and quite possibly the easiest and kindest I have dealt with in the many years of vacation rentals. I highly recommend taking advantage of this truly hidden gem on Orcas Island.

Hello Jeremy and Rita,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND WORDS!!
We are very happy you enjoyed your vacation and that your dog Milo enjoyed his time up there as well. We try our best to make our house a comfortable vacation home and we look forward to your possibly staying again. Rick & Alexandra
This house is wonderful! The house does not come off as a rental house. It comes across as a home lived in by friends who have let you use their home for a week. The kitchen is well stocked with just about anything you could possibly want in order to cook. We typically ate two meals a day at "home" and never needed anything in order to cook that wasn't in the kitchen. The house is nicely furnished, and it's stocked with books, movies, and games. The deck overlooking East Sound has a table and chairs and a gas grill. The view is gorgeous (as is witnessed by the number of pictures I have of ferries crossing East Sound in the sun, fog, rain, and all times of day)!
The master suite has a wonderful whirlpool-style tub that easily fits two people. This was a wonderful way to finish a day of hiking and kayaking.
The house is ideal for dogs. Out the side door, down a flight of stairs, and they're in a side yard that is fully fenced. There are even spare dog dishes in case you forgot to bring yours.
The house is located just up the road from the Rosario Beach Resort, about a mile from the entrance to Moran State Park, and approximately a mile from hikes around Cascade Lake.
I highly recommend staying in this house for a vacation, and I look forward to staying there again.

Beautiful and Comfortable Home!!
My wife and I have been planning to go to the San Juans for the longest time. Finally we went and it was incredible. The views are fantastic. This home was so well decorated, very warm and friendly. My kids couldn't believe the deer would come right up to the front door to eat! Very clean and comfortable inside. The island offered hikes, sightseeing, but overall just a great place to relax and unwind. And if we wanted to stay connected to the "outside world" there was always high speed WIFI and Directv.
WONDERFUL PLACE!! WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK.
We could not have been more thrilled when we walked in the front door. The home is beautiful and extremely comfortable. You can't begin to prepare yourself for the amazing view that awaits you from the living room, dining room and back deck. We had so much fun visiting the many nearby sites like Cascade Lake, Mt. Constitution and much more! We had so much fun hanging out in the home, playing games & watching movies- we loved it! Everything you could possibly need was there....games, movies, books, soft linens, dishes, cookware. Truly, what a wonderful place to spend a vacation. We can't wait to come back!
