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.

Family Reunion Fun

  • 5 of 5
There were 12 of us who stayed at this well appointed, beautiful home. It was great having enough space for all of us to sleep and have some private space.
The house is well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and plenty of bath towels for showers. The views from the back porch were beautiful and the house is in a great location to take morning or evening walks or to play some yard games in the back.
The owner was extremely helpful not only with questions about the house, but with knowledge about the entire island from things to do to places to go/eat. The house is close to restaurants and to town. We would go back to this house for sure!

Great Home for a laid back vacation

  • 5 of 5
Harvy treated us great throughout the week and had the home set up perfectly. We loved the location and the home. The kitchen is great and full of modern touches. The deck is perfect for evening sunset watching(if the mosquitos leave you alone but nothing you can do about that). Not one complaint. Amazing place and location, would love to come back.

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!

Owner's Response: Dear Amy,

Thank you, the pleasure was all ours to host you during your island explorations. Yes the migrating hummingbirds are a yearly feat, Im glad they were there to greet you daily. Your warm appreciation honors the diversity of the islands unique ecosystems. Till next time, Lopez will await your return. All the very best, Harvey


From the Owner

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!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : at 2 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : at 5 Miles Nearest Golf : at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 1 Miles

We are located in one of the best areas of Lopez island. Mid island, West side, low bank easy access, 2 miles from the village along a picturesque waterfront, water view drive full of marine and bird life. Water views and bay views from the house.
