About the property

Waterfront cabin featuring 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms with scenic views

Welcome to this Sweet Sanctuary overlooking water, islands, eagles, and a ferry or two.

'The Sunrise Cliff House is absolutely wonderful. There has been much thought put into making the sure home is fully stocked with anything you may need during your stay.' - Recent Guest

While outside is magical, inside is furnished to perfection for upscale comfort and function. You will feel well cared for here, in your island sanctuary.

It sits above the waterfront for lovely water views. A sizeable deck wraps the house on the waterside where you can enjoy a BBQ evening.

On a misty night, you may choose to stay indoors, gathered around the glow of a Wood Stove. After conversation and contemplation, sit back and enjoy the cable television - complete with all the movie channels, provided in both the living room. WIFI internet and telephone are also available.

Meal preparation is a joy in this kitchen equipped with an island, maple cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. Slate and tile are widely used, including in the attractive bathroom where the radiant floors will keep your toes warm.

At the end of the day, there's a comfortable king-size bed in the upper level master bedroom with amazing views. A second bedroom contains a queen bed and there are two twin beds in the third. The home is built on high-bank waterfront and the beach below is a private beach for the Sunrise Community.

Recently remodeled, it is wonderfully fresh and new.

Fully furnished.

About Matthew T. Murray

I am a long-time traveler and property manager originally from California. I came to the San Juan Islands in the early 2000's to enjoy the abundance of nature, fishing, scenery and community lifestyle that are unique to the San Juan's. I love getting to know my guests and helping them explore all the wonderful places and events I have come to know as home.

Matthew T. Murray purchased this house in 2005

Why Matthew T. Murray chose San Juan Islands

There is something magical about the San Juan's, and Lopez Island in particular. People say Lopez is stuck in time, and we like it that way. Step back in time in this oasis from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Enjoy the sunrise with a coffee on the deck, and keep your eyes peeled for eagles, whales, otters and seals. Or use my home as a jumping off point for world-class fishing, clamming, crabbing, whale-watching, hiking or simply further exploring the beauty of the San Juan Islands.

What makes this house unique

Watch eagles fly by while in bed, wake up to a sunrise, catch crab, and clams and eat the same night, feel and see the islands wild with no development in view. Watch sailboats and the ferry go by, watch otters play, roast marshmallows in the fire pit, play musical instruments provided, meditate on the beauty.

R&R at Sunrise Cliff House

  • 5 of 5

We loved the solitude and beauty of the island and the house. Fabulous, water's edge views of picturesque Lopez Sound from the home's great room and master bedroom inspire spells of quiet contemplation. Comfortable and clean, with a wood burning stove we came to cherish! We've already booked our next stay . . .

Thanks for recommending the hiking on Iceberg Point, Matthew. It was a perfect way to spend Christmas day.

This was our second trip to Lopez and to the Sunrise Cliff House. We have been to Orcas, San Juan and Shaw islands as well. Lopez is definitely our favorite island and the Cliff House is our favorite place to stay. It cannot be beat for comfort, solitude, views and general relaxation. The sunrise on clear mornings was breathtaking and we love seeing the ferries go by, especially at night when they are all lit-up.

We spend 8 days reading, hiking, doing puzzles and catching up with family that lives elsewhere. We never lacked new places to explore, which made it tough to balance that with just kicking back and enjoying the cabin. Thank you for providing such a beautiful, comfortable and well equipped home. We felt like we were home!

We are still waving at people as we drive the streets at home. We loved that about the Lopez experience, but people here look at us like we are crazy... We will be back!

Peace and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house very much. Matt was available for any questions and even brought by some wonderful organic veggies! Walked down the little trail to the water, and there were 5 baby otters frolicking on the rocks...so beautiful and unexpected! Many things to do on Lopez Island, and we enjoyed many of them. The house suited our needs and we enjoyed the tranquility. Only negative was not knowing there was no bathroom on upper floor.

Not really a big issue though. Thanks Matt for sharing your house with us!

What a great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent a week at the Sunrise Cliff House. We were so tired when we first got there, and the first couple of days were so relaxing and rejuvenating. We had a bonfire and had s'mores one day. Once we were rested, our days were filled with activities - farmers market, shopping, hiking the many trails that Matt told us about. (We loved the trail along the cliffs above the ocean!) The locals are very friendly and waved as they passed us. We couldn't believe how much there was to do on a 29.5 square mile island! We had such a good time we are already planning a 10 night stay next year, so we will have time for inter-island travel.

Spectacular Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing week at the beautiful Sunrise Cliff house. This house has the greatest views with lots of wildlife and is very peaceful. It is clean and equipped with everything you might need. Matt told us about many great hikes with more incredible views which we enjoyed. We also went to several of the farms on the island for fresh produce and fish. Everyone we met in town were so helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this house and this island. We intend to be back later this year.....

Amazing Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a girls getaway. It was clean and cozy with amazing views! Matt was very friendly and had many suggestions for things to do and sights to see. We were able to use the row boat, hike and visit the winery. We had a great time. Thank you Matt!
