Guestbook comments from the owner
We were really impressed with quality of the vacation rental, as well the design and attention to details. The entire stay was really quiet and calming. We enjoyed cuddling up on the sofas after a great walk on the beach. The area is central and convienent to the village nearby. We would recommend this stay.

We have travelled extensively all over the world enjoying unique and connecting experiences thru people, food and cultures.

We look forward to continueing this journey with our daughter showing her the diversity of the world begining with this place we call the great Pacific North West!

Lopez constantly reminds us that the most beautiful things in life are right infront and all around you!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

After visiting most of the San Juan and Gulf Islands for the past 20 years, we have always come back to Lopez because it's one of the friendliest, most community orientated and beautiful of the islands. The views are astounding, the food is amazing, a 25 mi diet is doable, the culture is so laidback and the people: creative, passionate and lovely. What more could one want!

We love being close to the water & beach; walking, running, watching sunsets & moonlight simultaneously, surrounded by lots of natural wildlife, birdsong, peace and silence. We get to enjoy all of these and more at our VistaBay.

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE HOME, EXCELLENT LOCATION, AND GORGEOUS VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
My husband, brother, sister-in-law, and our four small children ages 1-4 stayed in this beautiful home over the 4th of July weekend and had a truly wonderful time. The house is clean, spacious, comfortable, and well-stocked with everything you need. The kitchen had high-quality knives (unusual in a rental house!), plenty of cups and plates, and there were even the handy little essentials like tupperware and plastic bags. There are a lot of dried goods on hand, which made cooking most of our meals at the house really easy.

The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bedrooms are decently sized. Between the two floors and the den, there was plenty of space for the kids to play inside when it rained and it never felt like the house was too crowded. There are a bunch of toys, games, books, and art supplies for kids to play with, which was really handy.

We had a fantastic time and are looking forward to returning for another stay sometime in the future!

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for a five-day break. First off, the house is beautiful and well-maintained. Everything you could want is right there--a well-equipped kitchen and patio grill, a comfortable bed (only tried out one of the four), spotless bathrooms, laundry facilities, EVERYTHING! We made breakfast and dinner every night at the house, eating out only at lunchtime. The listing descriptions and photos are completely accurate.

The views from the house are spectacular, and if you enjoy walking and birdwatching, this is the house for you--if you look at this house on Google Earth, you can see the bald eagle that basically lives in the tree in front of the house. Plus, there are four to five hummingbirds that frequent the feeders--they'll buzz you when you leave the house! While we were here, we watched the sun rise and the sun set daily, and walked the nearby beach daily.

Lopez Island itself is a real treat - not too touristy, and plenty of places to eat and watch the world go by. We really enjoyed the drive over to Agate Beach and spending an afternoon there. The grocery store had everything we needed, and had reasonable prices. Friday Harbor and Orcas Island are only ferry rides away, although you don't need to go to either of them to enjoy your stay at this house.

The owners of this house are definitely house-proud, and I can't blame them--they have a beautiful piece of property that is well-maintained and loved. They answered all of our questions in a timely fashion. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone for a relaxing visit to Lopez Island!

LOPEZ ISLAND HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
Loved staying here! Clean and welcoming home with a great view of the water and a deck to sit out and enjoy it on. We enjoyed the popcorn Harvey left for us and watching a movie from his collection. The house is well set up for kids with lots of games in the den. We woke up to see an eagle perched on top a tree outside the window! So cool. Harvey was most informative and flexible with our travel plans. We enjoyed biking this peaceful island, exploring Shark's Reef Cove, Iceberg Point, and Spence's Spit.

A HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 of 5
This home may look modest from the outside but inside you'll find a lovingly restored gem! The kitchen is airy, spacious and upscale with beautiful hardwood floors throughout the main level, gorgeous tiled bath, wonderful family room with lots of things to keep the kiddos busy on rainy days, a spacious deck overlooking a lovely view of the water. Harvey took care of every possibility that may come up - extra jackets, rain jackets, umbrellas, toys for kids, DVDs, etc. There was even a welcome basket loaded with information and edible goodies! He was super responsive both in emails before our rental and was kind to call us the first night to make sure all was well. The location of the home is wonderful - just a short drive from the village and a short walk down a shared driveway to the narrow spit that runs between the pebbly beach and a tidal mudflat - a perfect place to take leisurely strolls. Lopez Island is a sleepy island loaded with organic farms, great restaurants (Love Dog Cafe is our favorite of the ones we tried), beautiful cedar forest paths that lead to secret coves. We absolutely loved our time in this delightful home on this gorgeous little island. Thanks Harvey, for taking such good care of your guests!

AMAZING HOME IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This home is the best location for a quiet getaway! This was our second trip to Lopez and this home is roomy and in an excellent location. We spent our days walking along the beach and wine tasting in town. We couldn't ask for a better home away from home. Thanks Harvey!!

RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had on Lopez. The house is well appointed and very comfortable. Plenty of everything. (lots of bath towels, blankets to curel up with while reading, dish towels) The little touches (christmas tree and decorations) were a wonderful surprises for our grand daughters. Plenty of room to come together but also enough room to have alone time. The owners are truly gracious host.
