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 and all around you.…this is Lopez Island!

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!

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us had plenty of room in this very nice house. The kitchen was well outfitted. The decor was attractive. There are three bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs plus a foldout. The soundproofing between the walls on the main floor is not great so if you have someone who gets up earlier than anyone else, have them stay in the basement (where there is a second kitchen) and have the soundest sleepers stay in the upstairs bedroom that is closest to the kitchen--that room is closest to the bathroom plumbing and my sister said she was awakened each time someone flushed the toilet. These are minor items and not intended as criticisms. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Dear Carolyn, Thankyou for your follow up. Im glad your family enjoyed the home and the surrounding area during your time on Lopez Island. Amidst all the migrating bird species, I hope you got see the local hummingbirds buzz around daily- there are 2 species one local and another that migrates fr Mexico. On the one room, I will offer your suggestion if anyone is a light sleeper. Have a great fall & best wishes to your family!
