Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My 25 years in design, construction and property mgt is the result of 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 the Owner Chose Lopez Island, WA, USA:
After visiting most of the San Juan and Gulf Islands for the past 30 years, our family has 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 15 mi diet is achievable, the local culture is truly engaged yet laidback and the people: creative, passionate and caring. What more could one want!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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. Enjoy all of these and more at VistaBay!
