Overview

Lopez Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

The house has everything you need to enjoy your time on Lopez. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, pans, dishes etc...all you need is the food!

The wrap around deck offers great views of the village, bay and surrounding islands. Relax in the spacious family room. Curl up with a good book in the loft. Warm up near the wood-burning stove. You will feel comfortable and at home here.

The Island.

The island is the first stop on the Washington Ferry from Anacortes, a pleasant and beautiful 45 minute ride from the mainland. Approximately 15 miles long and eight miles wide, Lopez is home to about 2,200 permanent residents. Despite its small size, you'll find a mix of farmland, forest, coastline and state parks, with many recreational opportunities. You can take a long hike, a bike ride among the rolling hills, visit the local winery, or simply find a quiet spot to read a book. Bicycle rentals are available in town (a short walk) and at the marina about two miles from the house.

Local things

The San Juans are renown as a kayak heaven--you can find yourself in the midst of curious seals or even orcas while bald eagles fly overhead. There are several great tour companies on the island (see our links.) You can take a lesson, rent a kayak or join a small group for a three hour tour.

If you visit between May and September, you won't want to miss the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, just down the hill from Sunset View House. You may find local produce and meat, handmade soaps, jewelry and assorted arts and crafts.

Neil's Mall

Also called Take it or Leave it, there is an area to drop off your used treasures for someone else's use. You have two choices...take it or leave it. It is a local gathering.

Note. Base rates listed in the rate sections are for house use up to 4 guests. Guests 5-9 are charged at $20 per person per night.

About Tony

I love the island. It has a magical pull to it that draws me close. I hope you can experience some of this during your stay!!

Tony purchased this house in 2002

Why Tony chose Lopez Island

The original owners were lovely people. When I first saw the house, it seemed like they built it for me!! It called to me. The open nature, the wood and stone...all things that made it an easy decision have for my family.

What makes this house unique

Secluded and close to the Village at the same time. Modern and quaint.

Wonderful House on Wonderful Island

  • 5 of 5
We have been returning almost annually to Lopez Island since 1998 and to Sunset View House with our kids since about 2006. We sort of think of it as "our" special place even though it's not actually our house. The house is clean, well-maintained, well-stocked, nicely finished, well-designed/laid-out, and awesomely situated on a large piece of property (aahhhh, quiet privacy) within easy walking distance to Lopez Village. When we are there in the summer, looking over the sea of tall golden grass between the house and the Village, with the water and other islands in the distance (great views!), a feeling of happiness and peace just washes over us.

We shop at the farms stands and the local stores. We make meals in the well-appointed kitchen. With the doors and windows open, we eat meals at the kitchen table big enough for our 5-6 people (many other vacation rentals have tiny kitchen tables). We hike, kayak, read, bike, and go to the beaches and library. We play croquet and whiffle ball in our PJs on the front lawn at noon. We just chill at the lovely house. Deer come for a visit. Every year we check out the growth of the two cherry trees in the front yard, and enjoy the flowers in the front beds. The parcel of land, flowers, house, big front porch, front lawn and the un-mowed field feature prominently in many of our best family photographs over the years. To change things up, we take the ferry to other islands for a day-trip or hire a boat (captain Marty Mead of North Shore Charters) to take us to smaller islands and go exploring and hiking.

The house's proximity to the Village is key for us. We can send the kids on foot to the market to get some milk knowing they will be safe. If we don't feel like cooking, we walk to the Village to eat, shop, go to the skate-board park, the community center, Holly B's, Bucky's, Love Dog, Blossom Grocery, Vita's, Vortex, Lopez Village Market. We've visited to the health clinic and even the dentist on Lopez. Everyone is always very friendly.

Since we fly in from out-of-state, we don't pack much--everything you could need is easy to get, despite being on a small island. Commerce happens differently on Lopez than in Houston, and it is really nice to expose our kids to a different approach: eggs sold on the honor system; Take It or Leave It at the recycling center; bread baked fresh daily by the people who sell it to you. We really enjoy mellow Lopez Island and this wonderful house.

Fantastic House and Location -- Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience at the Sunset View House. We had 6 adults and it was totally comfortable and there was definitely room for more. The house has a great flow and feel to it. The open kitchen, dining, living room area is fantastic for hanging out and cooking. The house is stocked with games and has a cozy wood fireplace. At first we weren't sure about being so close to town but actually it was fantastic. With the big field in front you feel far enough away while still being able to quickly pop into town for coffee or forgotten groceries. We hope to come back for another visit soon!

Highly Recommended. Perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect spot for our family vacation. We had two couples plus a fifth adult. We all had very comfortable sleeping accommodations, and loved the roomy and well equipped kitchen and dining area. The deck was a very nice spot to hang out for morning coffee or evening drinks with a nice view to the west of the village and shoreline - and on two occasions had great views of osprey flying by!

This place was just about perfect for our 2 families - 8 all together (4 adults, 4 kids). Stone's throw from the village but still very private. Blackberry bushes galore at the entrance. Deer and birds all around. Incredibly well-stocked house in the kitchen and for sleeping accessories. Warm, open feel. Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone visiting Lopez.
