Lopez Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This unique, three bedroom Lopez Island vacation rental is a special place, a pocket of beauty tucked away among the many inlets and islets that punctuate the San Juan Islands. Stand on the big deck and look past the beach to the clear, blue waters of Swifts Bay - you'll see why it's totally worth the ferry ride to get here. The beach is right out the front door, Spencer Spit State Park is around the corner and within walking distance.
The island is 15 miles long, with over 60 miles of shoreline and 2,500 year-round residents. Lopez Island is the third largest of the San Juan Islands and is accessible only by boat or plane. In general, it is also a popular place for cyclists. This house is close to the ferry and the village - you may even decide to ride off the ferry directly to the house. Bikes, kayaks, and paddleboards can be rented at a couple different shops in town so you can spend the day cycling around this scenic island, visiting shops, and just enjoying the afternoon.
This is the perfect laid back home for quiet, yet adventurous, family vacations. The living room, between the paneled wood cathedral ceiling and the bank of water-facing windows is filled with the kind of comfortable furniture and artwork that makes the space feel special and inviting. A large TV and DVD player is set up for movie nights, or you can just gaze out and get lost in the incredible views from the living room's large windows. There are a lot of open spaces, and the home's warm and friendly atmosphere is made even more so by the fire in the wood stove that will warm you on those cold island mornings and evenings. It would be a great space for couples, families, groups of friends.
This home has three bedrooms plus a loft- making it comfortable for up to six guests to get a good night's rest. There are two bedrooms downstairs, one with a full-sized bed and the other with a queen. Upstairs you'll find one more bedroom with a queen and a loft area with a full-sized bed, plus a twin-over-full bunk bed - a space the kids will love to call their own! In addition, there is a small bath with a shower upstairs and a full bath with tub downstairs.
You also have a beautiful, fully stocked kitchen right at your fingertips. In addition to a big refrigerator, an electric stove, plenty of cookware, and shelves of spices, you'll also have a microwave to heat up a quick snack and a dishwasher for easy clean-up. The nearby dining room table seats eight, with plenty of seating on the large deck for eating outside. For your convenience, you'll also have washer and dryer for keeping clothes clean and dry, and free WiFi in case you need to keep in touch with work.
The beach itself is low bank and sandy, uncommon on Lopez. There is a firepit with benches, kayaks, and a rowboat. A great feature of this property is the mooring buoy that comes with the house - it allows boaters to travel directly to the house and tie up close by. If you can tear yourself away from the beach right out your door, head up island in the morning to Cafe la Boheme, a European-style coffeehouse for coffee drinks and pastries, then stroll around the village taking in the sights and browsing galleries and shops. For a unique day trip, you can catch a ferry on the north end of the island to Friday Harbor, Orcas Island, or even Sidney, British Columbia, on Victoria Island.
