After having spent several summer vacations on a different island in the San Juans, we were curious about trying a new island. Our decision to rent this house in Lopez Village was well-rewarded. The location was outstanding, the town fully walkable and friendly, and the entire island a true biker’s paradise. Not to mention that the house itself was clean, comfortable, cozy, and fully prepared for our 10-day stay. It is a 60s era home and some of the decor will have you imagining that you might be on a set of Mad Men.
Tammy, the owner, ensured that we were comfortable as soon as we arrived and had great recommendations for must-see beaches, walks, and restaurants. She was only a phone call or an email away, as well, if we had any questions.
We did plenty of biking on the scenic roads of Lopez and always seemed to enjoy a friendly wave from the locals. The beaches were spectacular, no matter which side of the island we visited. Each day would end with a leisurely but spectacular sunset viewed either from the upper deck, the back porch, or inside the home that has enormous picture windows to frame every glorious view. It was a great way to slow down and just relax.
We enjoyed a truly outstanding meal at the Bay Cafe, just a few steps away from the home. In addition, ice cream, fudge, Holly B’s bakery, Isabel’s Espresso were all close. The full-service grocery store is a five minute walk.
If true relaxation is what you crave, this home on Lopez Island provides it. As soon as we arrived, the Lopez Effect took hold, and it lasted until we drove onto the ferry to head home.
This house has it all. Fantastic view. Village location and yet is private. Watch seals, eagles, loons, ducks from any seat inside/outside. Oh, and the boats coming/going aimed right at you. Take stairs down to the beach. Have a fire, either inside or in the pit. And the house itself is an interesting 1950's style. Everything is "retro" and works great. You could pay way more to stay in a new cabin 2 lots over, but it is smaller and has every Village tourist right outside your door/windows.
Thank you Tammy, for making a very pleasant stay for our anniversary.

Islands View House felt like home the instant we walked in the door. My mother, sister and I stayed for 3 nights in the off season, and couldn't have had a better visit. Perfect location in Lopez Village within easy walking distance for coffee, shopping and restaurants, yet still felt very private, since the living areas are on the water side of the house. Comfortably and charmingly furnished inside, and the owner has provided everything you might need for your stay - inside and outside. Amazing view from both the downstairs and upstairs deck. If I lived in this house (and I wish I did!) I'd never get anything done because I'd be staring at the view all the time. The owner was easy to work with and very helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat on the island.
We could have parked ourselves inside, looking out the big picture window, or outside on the deck, just watching the water and the boat traffic all weekend long. The view was amazing and so very relaxing. Our host was super gracious, even bringing freshly caught crab to us! The kitchen was well stocked, nothing was missing. The beds were comfy. It was so nice to be close to the village. It was a fabulous weekend!
Our family has been spending several days at the Islands View Village House for the past few years and we have loved every minute of it. The house has three good sized bedrooms on two floors, with plenty of space for six adults and two children. There is a “great room” which includes seating for six in front of a huge fireplace and a dining area which seats eight. (Highchair and port-a-crib are available on request.) There is a gorgeous view of the water and the other islands to the west from almost every room in the house and from the pleasant covered patio and yard. The location is perfect: from the street side of the house, it is just a block to the market and the other stores and restaurants in Lopez Village. Tammy, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating and the house is always spotless when we check in. I would highly recommend this house for a family or group of adults.
Everything positive in this listing is accurate. This home is a perfect setting for a vacation with family or friends, lending itself to as much activity or relaxation as you would like. It is excellently equipped, including an excellent outdoor grill and fire pit as well as some pantry basics, making it easy to prepare meals. The setting is outstanding, with beautiful sea and sunset vistas and a very short walk to the few stores and restaurants on this scenic, lovely island. Tammy is a warm, caring hostess who is rightfully proud of this gem of a home.
