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.

what a gem!

  • 5 of 5
Vista Bay rental house is a gem! The location, the views, and the house are all perfect. The house is beautifully arranged and maintained, immaculate and up-to-date, and very family- and children-friendly. Everything is either within walking, or a short drive to other beaches and parks. The house is so comfortable and inviting that we had to motivate ourselves to go explore other parts of Lopez Island. It was a wonderful family retreat at a very special part of the world, Lopez Island.

Amazing home and view!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at this home! It is super clean, warm, fully equipped (kitchen, beach towels and toys, extra blankets and pillows, books, movies, etc.) and perfect for large families or smaller family getaways. The location can't be beat - the view is amazing, it's close to town, and there is plenty of beach walking right out the front door. Harvey, the manager, made sure we had everything we needed, including ideas of activities, and called us to check-in shortly after our arrival. My family is planning on renting this home again - and bringing more family members (including young children) to enjoy this gem!

Great House

  • 5 of 5
Two families with two very young children stayed the weekend in this great house. Harvey was a wonderful host, reaching out to me before our arrival to make sure we knew how to get to the house, how to take the ferry, etc. He even notified us of some island events taking place during our stay, and recommended we attend. He also noted our two small children, and provided extra instructions on sleeping options for the young ones (and plenty of toys!). The house was very clean, very modern, very warm and very cozy. The kitchen is spacious and very well-stocked. The house is in a great spot on Lopez - just far enough away from the Village to be both quiet and convenient. A short drive to some cool hikes and views on the island. The Milky Way from the deck was gorgeous. Highly recommended.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5
The location of this house is superb. We walked the peninsula multiple times a day. The beds were comfy and we were able to pull off an early Thanksgiving dinner in the well stocked kitchen. I highly recommend this rental for families as there are plenty of toys, pack-n-plays and baby monitors provided.

Wonderful House on a Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5
10 of us stayed very comfortably in this lovely house (5 adults, 5 kids). It was clean, well kept, wonderfully full of light and with amazing views, even while not being right on the water (it is very close). We were there for a wedding weekend and we all had such a good time we are considering returning to both the island and the house for an extended vacation. Cannot recommend highly enough... and the people of Lopez are amazing! Our rental car died an hour before the wedding, we were trapped and the next door neighbor was going to lend us his car, not even knowing us, to get there... but he himself managed to fix our car!

From the Owner

After visiting most of the San Juan and Gulf Islands for the past 25 years, we have always come back to Lopez because it's one of the friendliest, most community orientated and beautiful of the San Juan Islands. The views are astounding, the food is amazing, a 15 mi diet is achievable, the culture so engaged yet laidback and the people: creative, passionate and caring. What more could one want!
