THE TOWER HOUSE AT AGATE BEACH

Lopez Island House Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to the Tower House at Agate Beach. A landmark on the South End of Lopez Island.

This custom built three bedroom, two and a half bath home features a three story observation tower from which you will enjoy gorgeous views of the boats in MacKaye Harbor to the North, stunning sunsets over the twinkling lights of Victoria to the West and the Olympic Peninsula across the Staits of Juan De Fuca.

We have stayed in many vacation rentals ourselves and know what we have liked and what we have loved. So at the Tower House we have distilled all the positives into one relaxing, romantic, and fun place. Plush beds in clean comfortable rooms and a well appointed kitchen with a door leading to a seasonal organic herb and vegetable garden for your dining pleasure. This house offers plenty of soft seating in an open floor plan. For a little quiet time you may choose to lounge in the reading room or sip wine in the leather armchairs up in the tower. You will find lots of indoor and outdoor games, puzzles and books for all ages. On the decks there are plenty of chairs, flowers and a gas BBQ. We have covered storage for your bikes and kayaks too.

Our unique location between two picturesque bays offers varied opportunities for beach combing shells, building driftwood houses, watching shore birds, eagles, owls, otters, seals, tide pools, and so much more! We are a short walk to the dramatic headlands of Iceberg Point where you can spot anything from whales to native cactus growing along the bluffs (we get a fraction of the rain Seattle does.) Your shared private Agate Beach is just across the road and the boat launch is near by for fantastic fishing.

You will find several hikes and picnic destinations just a bike ride away, as well as the South End General Store and Restaurant that can supply you with a great selection of local produce and products, and has a world class selection of wine and beers.

Visit in the sweater season to enjoy the in-floor heat and the thrilling storms (we get seaweed in the yard)

all at off season rates.

Come stay, relax and create life long memories. You are welcome here at the Tower House.

We started building the Tower House in 1996 and finish a few years later. We have loved and continue to love our wonderful home. We moved to San Juan Island for our daughters education and hope in time to move back to the Tower House.

We purchased this piece of land because it was such an amazing property. The views, the wild life. It also is close to my husbands parents, and we wanted our daughter to be close to her grandparents.

With the Straits of Juan de Fuca on one side and the protected MacKaye Harbor on the other side we feel we have the best of both views.

Fabulous House

Starting with our emails to the owner ending with our seeing a bald eagle on our way to the ferry coming home, it was a magical weekend. The house is spacious, yet also has nooks and crannies that afford privacy and solitude, even with 4 adults, a 9 and a 13 yr old. The kitchen was fun to cook in, and we had wonderful meals at home. Two terrific beaches for shell seekers, and good trails nearby. This is definitely a place we'd like to come back to!

The proprietor was responsive and friendly and the Tower House was lovely. Our group had a fantastic New Year's Holiday. Every aspect of the experience was positive. A great place to visit for quiet splendor.

Girls Weekend Dream House!!!

I cannot even describe how much the 4 of us LOVED this house! Actually, I can - it was hard for us to leave on Sunday without commenting "Make sure to leave Kirstie (owner) a note, and tell her we will be booking this house in another six months!" Speaking of Kirstie...she is amazing to work with. From the booking, to information on ferrys, and just island information in general, she was informative and so helpful! Plus she met us at the door with homemade cookies! The pictures depict this house perfectly as far as beauty - what it doesn't capture is the hominess. Immaculately clean, and comfy, we felt completely at home, and comfortable at the Tower House. The sitting room is great; complete with couches and other seating. Gorgeous gas range and oven in the kitchen, which is completely stocked with appliances, cutlery, and dishes. We could not get over the heated concrete floors! And they are gorgeous! Bedrooms are big and the beds are AMAZING. And of course the Tower lookout and reading rooms are awesome to relax/hang out in. Beaches,hikes, and sunsets are close at hand, and beach access is right around the corner from the house.. I would highly recommend the Tower House to friends and relatives - even though I would love to keep it my little hiding place in the Islands.

Weekend on Lopez island

Lovely home near Agate Pass. Six adults had enough room to sleep, eat and recreate. Kitchen nicely furnished. Ants in kitchen, but they are endemic to island. Very nice vegetable garden. Large fenced area for children to play. Outside steps are difficult to see in fog and rain. Could use a way to mark the edges. Stairs in house are curved and uneven, but very manageable for older adults with no mobility problems. Main bedroom with private bath on first flood. 2 other bedrooms share a bath on the second floor. Twin beds are a mattress on a wood frame, so are very firm. Tower would be fun on a sunny day to be able to get a water view. Walk to small, pretty beach. Nice hike up road and into woods to beautiful lookout - Iceberg Point. Can see seals, sometimes whales, birds. Good spot to start a bike trip around Island. Small well stocked grocery store near by. Take car or ride bike to small village 11 miles away for restaurants, larger food market, great book store, art galleries, and crafts stores. Small farmers market on Saturdays.

We happened upon an article in the August edition of Seattle Magazine ( http://www.seattlemag.com/gallery/island-getaways ) that mentioned Tower House so checked out the location and prior reviews and quickly decided to try to rent the place for a few days. We stayed at Tower House for the only two nights that were still available in August and filled the days on either end of the visit, but could have definitely enjoyed more days & nights if we had had them. Kirstie, one of the owners, cheerfully greeted us upon arrival and immediately made us feel very welcome in her spotless and spacious home. A folder with useful island information, freshly baked cookies, wi-fi, and a room stocked with games made the group feel right at home. The photos from the VRBO site depict the place quite well, but the airy openness of the place can not be seen in the images. High ceilings and lots of large windows and doors are nice features of the place. The kitchen appliances are new and the kitchen is open-separated by a counter-to the dining and sitting rooms. There are steps from the kitchen into the back kitchen garden full of herbs and vegetables (depending upon the season) that the owner encouraged us to harvest (we did-yum!). The bedrooms were nicely furnished with comfortable mattresses upon high bed frames. There were plenty of towels for the beach and the bath, as well as pristine sheets and pillows.The first floor master bedroom with attached bathroom was perfect for one of our group for whom stairs are a challenge. Because of the location of the home on a gravel lane just off Agate Beach, there are views from the tower of both Outer Bay and Barlow Bay as well as gardens, and fields (and bounding deer). The lovely pebble strewn private beach is just around the corner a short walk away. We enjoyed the little peaceful driftwood edged cove that is Agate beach. Low tide allowed us to walk out a short ways to and clamber about on a tiny island. Besides spending time on Agate Beach, we also took walks along the road past Barlow Bay and easy walks along paths that weave about Iceberg Point. We loved the majestic views along the bluffs (we were happy to have binoculars to better view seals and birds) and the cool lushness of the green woods. We were sad to have to leave so soon the peaceful walks, the almost empty beach that was especially beautiful at sunset, and the airy, comfortable, mermaid-guarded Tower House. Next time we visit we will bring bikes.
