|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Find some time to get away from it all by booking this bright and open Lopez Island vacation home, with windows big enough to enjoy beach views. With three spacious bedrooms and cathedral ceilings, you and your family may never want to leave this island paradise.
If you've never been to Lopez Island, the Swifts Bay Beach House with mooring is the perfect way to experience it, as you'll be close to the ferry and the village. Popular for cyclists, the island is a great place to find adventure on two wheels. You can rent kayaks, bikes, and paddleboards in town or you may just decide to visit one of the charming cafes where you can spend the day reading your favorite book in the afternoon sun. For even more fun, catch the ferry and take a day trip to Orcas Island, Sidney, or British Columbia.
Though you may want to relax all day on the massive deck overlooking the water - perhaps while cooking up some burgers on the grill - the cozy interior is certainly the place to be on chilly nights. Gather around the dining table to play cards or enjoy a big family meal. The open kitchen is right next to the dining room and has everything you'd need to cook pancakes for breakfast or homemade pizza for dinner - including stainless steel appliances and lots of counter space.
In the living room, you can watch a DVD on the flat screen TV with a bowl of popcorn. When it's time to turn in for the night, you'll have three bedrooms plus a loft, making this home perfect for up to six guests. Two bedrooms are downstairs, one with a full-sized bed and the second with a queen-sized bed. Head upstairs to find one bedroom equipped with a queen and the loft area with a full-sized bed as well as a twin-over-full bunk bed. In addition, this home has two full bathrooms, a laundry room, and WiFi.
When needing to pull the family away from their busy schedules for a few days, this home will provide the ideal gathering space where you can reconnect with each other and with nature. No need to rush anywhere while staying here, as you'll enjoy a slower pace of life. Of course, you can still hop on a paddleboard or a kayak when you're looking for some fun!
Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.
Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.
Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
We only made our coffee, had no plans to stay inside much. Very convenient location near ferry. All the islands are grand, L.I. is more "rural".
The house was perfect for four adults. The views were gorgeous. Ease of getting to ferry and around the island very easy. Being there "out of season" limited our access to the park and activities.
The cabin is quite large and has a nice wood-burning fireplace. There are kayaks to use and the beach is right at your doorstep. There is a beautiful Northeast facing view of the ocean and nearby islands. You don't quite get morning or evening sun but it's a great location nonetheless.
The beds are comfortable and it can sleep a LOT of people if required. Shops and restaurants are only a 10-minute drive and all are very nice.
We would stay here again and recommend it to couples and families.
The property was very clean and in a nice quiet area of the beach. The wood-burning stove was a big feature for us city-dwellers. Also, the grocery stores and restaurants are conveniently located only about 10 minutes away. The management company was very helpful with directions and staying in contact.
We come to the San Juan islands each year and usually stay in Friday Harbor and then take the ferry to other island to bike. This year we decided to stay in Lopez because it had been our favorite island in the past and we were so happy with the decision! This island is so friendly and the biking is incredible. A car doesn't pass without waving and they give you space on your bike. This house was amazing, the view, the ability to walk out the door and kayak was amazing. Lopez is the only island we will stay on in the future and just visit the others.
We've vacationed on Lopez Island for close to 20 years, in different locations. We liked this location the best for its proximity to Spencer Spit and the village. Beautiful house in a beautiful spot, and the kayaks were a definite plus.
