Overview

About the property

Waterfront home 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 Lopez Island

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.

Great View! No BBQ

  • 4 of 5

The house and view was amazing. We truly enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Clean, nice amenities.

Given that, We did have an issue at the house and the contact information was not updated in the book. Everything was resolved...but it took some time to try and get a hold of someone

Lastly, the BBQ is broken and looks like it has been broken for some time. They should not list it in the description.

Lovely views

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, comfortable and nicely updated home. The owner was very helpful and had good suggestions about what to see and do on the Island. A fan or two would be a nice addition to the home. We really want to visit Lopez and stay here again. We would also recommend going whale watching. The boat was small and the captain was very knowledgeable.

Great view and location

  • 4 of 5

Great spot on Lopez with plenty of space to call your own. House was clean and provided adequate amenities for a long weekend.

We did have the water heater go down during our stay, to which the owner fixed in a timely manner. The challenge was reaching the owner as his cell phone service is spotty on the island. Once reached he was responsive and helpful.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and more (the provided laundry detergent was an added bonus!) and the views were spectacular. The yard was amazing to let the dogs run and play as well. Highly recommend!
