CONTEMPORARY WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL ON ORCAS ISLAND La Maison by the Sea is a lovely new home tucked into an incredible waterfront location. It's just what you visualize when dreaming of a romantic island getaway or solo retreat, a place to sit at the shoreline in the summer sun or snuggle by the fire on a blustery day. Located on a scenic point with dramatic views stretching down East Sound and toward the eastern hills, La Maison provides an elemental environment, yet it's also conveniently located within a short walk of the shops and restaurants in Eastsound Village. If you're the lucky one to reserve the popular 4th of July week, you'll enjoy front row seats for an exceptional fireworks display, usually launched from a barge moored right in front of the home. You'll also be able to avoid traffic and walk to the Eastsound parade and holiday events - participating in the celebrations of this close-knit community is a joyful and touching experience that's well worth a small premium! Outdoors, this little gem is wrapped up with nature, but the interior has a contemporary European flavor. The décor is spare, light, and accented with vivid colors including red lacquer cabinetry in the kitchen. There's a wood burning fireplace upstairs, and a "line of fire" to enjoy in the lower family room where the television is located. The master bedroom is on the main level and features a queen size bed; the master bath offers an elegant slipper tub with overhead shower. Downstairs, you'll find a second bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bathroom with shower, a den with flat screen TV for viewing movies with BluRay DVD, and laundry room. There's a wonderful deck with BBQ and seating off the upper dining area; the lower level patio and paths are of flagstone. This is a "shoes off" home with raw wood floors and delicate furnishings best enjoyed by adult guests only. Please note that there is a flight of stairs leading down to the front entry and that parking is limited to two small autos, or one SUV type vehicle. This home does not allow guests 6 years or under.
