Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 adults and had more than enough space. We all enjoyed going for morning runs/walks/bike rides out on the spit. We had everything we needed to cook all of our meals and appreciated all of the books that were available to read. We are an active group and made it to four locations around the island for some excellent sightseeing and light hiking. The location was perfect and Harvey was very accommodating.

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.

About Mgr Harvey

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!

Mgr Harvey purchased this house in 2008

Why Mgr Harvey chose Lopez Island

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!

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.

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.
