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.
