About Mgr Harvey

25 years of design construction management, traveling all over the world and connecting experiences thru people, food and cultures.

I look forward to continuing this journey with our daughter showing her the diversity of the world begining with these island spaces in the great Pacific North West!

Lopez Island will remind you that the most beautiful things in life are often right in front of you and beside you, above you, below you and all around you…this is Lopez!

Why Mgr Harvey chose Lopez Island

After visiting most of the San Juan and Gulf Islands for over 30 years, our families have always returned 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 quality is amazing, a 10 mile diet is achievable, the local culture is truly engaged yet laidback and the people: creative, passionate and caring. In renting this lovely home by the month you will see and feel what Lopez is a really all about, what more could one want!

What makes this house unique

We love being close to the water & beach; walking, running, watching sunsets & moonlight simultaneously, surrounded by lots of natural wildlife, daily birdsong, peace and silence. Your long term visits will fly by as you watch the seasons unfold. Enjoy all of these and more at VistaBay!

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 just loved this house! The owners spent so much time and care filling it with everywe might need

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and well stocked. The house is very family friendly with a great collection of toys and books for all ages . We loved the layout of rooms and the garden suite worked well for our family . The location could not be better! It is just a short walk to the lovely spit and we could see the sunset from the beach and we took at least two walks each day. I hope we go back next year! A plus is the property manager Harvey who was very accessible and helpful sending lots of suggestions and excellent check in and check out rules we could easily understand. The kitchen is fantastic and there are even rain boots and a pair of roller skates!

Loved 1st time Lopez from Texas

  • 5 of 5

Visited the San Juan Islands with 5 other for first time.

Had heard alot about the area but amazed by the landscapes, variety and views, including the extremely well stock, well laid out location of this vacation property.

Most every need or want has been anticipated even switches ,drawers, instructions labeled.

Great views of the water, islands fr early morning before the sun rises thru till the sun sets fr many rooms. Walk along the spit out front w beach and water on both sides watching shorebirds use the tidal estuary...was amazing as eagles perched, saw resident herons...6, plus ospreys and kingfisher's.

Came back 1st evening and 2 deer were sitting on the lawn watching the sun set as they and 3 white tailed rabbits scurried out of our cars way.

This property and the location> a strong recommend! Thank you

Great Location, Beautiful View, Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great find for us. We went as three families. The house had plenty of room and space for adults and kids. The view from the house was incredible. It was a perfect location to stage different trips to Lopez Village or to the various parks and sites around the island. I would definitely recommend it.
