About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 6

This stunning, recently updated rental offers privacy, the conveniences of home, and a unique location on the southern part of Lopez Island. Accessible via Washington State Ferry, private boat, or plane, this pet-friendly rental promises a memorable vacation for up to six lucky guests.

Part of the San Juan Islands, Lopez Island is 15 miles long and has over 60 miles of shoreline. With an airport and a number of public and private boat docks, this seemingly-isolated island is surprisingly accessible! From beautiful beaches to scenic trails for biking and hiking, you can spend an entire day admiring the beauty all around you. For those seeking urban comforts, there are a variety of small cafes, interesting galleries, and boutiques.

This beautiful home has incredible ocean views, entertainment options like a TV and DVD player, and a wood-burning fireplace to keep you warm on chilly evenings! And although there is no Internet service, the beautiful surroundings provide a welcome escape from technology!

The decor throughout this rental is bright and welcoming, incorporating a traditional style with some contemporary accents. The newly renovated and fully-stocked kitchen has stainless appliances and granite counters.

One of the bedrooms has a queen bed, and two of them have a comfortable full bed. There is a single full bathroom with tasteful decor and a shower. This home's single level layout offers comfortable accommodations for up to six guests.

Dogs are welcome to join you during your stay, although please note that there is an additional nightly fee.

Leave your work and worries at home and come stay at the beautiful Lopez Island Agate Beach Waterfront Home! With a peaceful location and plenty to keep you active and entertained during your stay, you'll never want to leave this island oasis.

**Please be aware that cell phone coverage can be spotty in this area and you may need to drive to a nearby town for cell service.

About Vacasa, WA - San Juans / Puget Sound Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife���s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great location and view, not so clean home.

  • 3 of 5

POSITIVES:

Great location, waterfront view, friendly, approachable neighbors, new kitchen and nice appliances, fairly well supplied with cooking equipment

Vacasa was a vacation saver! Can not say enough about the service Vacasa gave us. If it wasn't for Vacasa we probably would have left and demanded a refund.

NEGATIVES:

Not clean, by any standard, strange layout/use of space, nowhere to hang bath or kitchen towels, broken/disconnected exhaust fan in the bathroom, almost every set of window coverings is either missing or broken, which is no surprise given how heavy and clunky the shades that do exist are. Some inexpensive aluminum blinds would be a perfect option. No phone in case of an emergency (no cell service at this location either), no cable, satellite or even a functioning antenna and no internet.

Half of the house is abandoned due to flood damage, showing how little the owners care about this home. No washer/dryer, very tired, dirty furniture.

Every single thing in the home that wasn't provided by Vacasa needs cleaning, i.e. the rugs, the furniture, the bedding, the blinds. Deep cleaning needs to be done, badly.

A vacation property like this will never be truly great without owner involvement. This home could be so much more inviting and would command higher rent if the owners cared even a little bit about the house and its guests. This is a nearly abandoned property, apparently used only for extra income. The owners clearly care very little for the home, which is truly odd and sad as it is the home in which they grew up.

With a few touches such as new (and hopefully less heavy) blinds that work, some new furniture or (at a bare minimum) some slip covers for the old, tired and dirty couches and chairs, removal of all the easily dirtied, trip hazard rugs and proper placement of furniture this house would be so much more inviting and would feel much more homey and comfortable. Some new paint is badly needed as well. Not paying for at least some phone service and internet is just plain cheap and short sighted on the owners' part. If we had an emergency while at the property we would have had no way to call 911 as there is no cell connectivity there either, which is a safety issue.

Cleaning crews only clean up after guests, they don't do deep cleaning. This home needs an owner that actually uses the home and keeps it truly clean. This house clearly is never deep cleaned and it shows.

Vacasa provides clean sheets, but the bedding (owner responsibility again), like the furniture is tired and in desperate need of being washed. If there had been a washer and dryer available to us in the house we probably would have washed all of the bedding. I'm guessing it is never laundered, ever. Gross!

Concerning the washer and dryer issue, we have found, by talking with neighbors, that there is another level to this home where there is a (broken) washer and dryer. However, that part of the home experienced some flood damage. Again, the absentee homeowner decided to just abandon that part of the home rather than repair it and continue renting it out. It freaked me out a bit when I realized we were staying in a partially abandoned home!

Forgetting the abandoned portion of the home, it could rent for substantially more money if the owners simply cared for their childhood home a bit. A few thousand dollars for paint, slipcovers, new bedding and blinds would do wonders, not to mention periodic deep cleaning. However, if the owners plan to remain absent, nothing will help in the end. They would do better to both the home and the community to sell it to someone who will care for it and bring it back to life rather than to just let it sink slowly into disrepair and abandonment as it appears it is.

Mixed Review

  • 2 of 5

The owners apparently scheduled roofing work to be done on the day we were to check out. The roofers dropped off supplies (and left staples and nails in the grass) on Friday evening after disturbing us. The house then had a faint chemical smell all night from the supplies they dropped off. The roofers said they were scheduled to begin work on Saturday. I asked what time and they said 7am (I said that was not going to work). We agreed they could come at 8am and the foreman promised they would be quiet and just cut up the tarpaper and not use any hammers. The showed up at 8am with a crew of 6-8 men and proceeded to stomp on the roof and use blowers to clean the roof so we were basically chased out well before checkout. I didn't appreciate the owners of the house putting us in this position. The Roof Doctor foreman said there were 4 owners of the house and they'd been given permission to start roofing. We will stay elsewhere next time we visit Lopez Island.

Comfortable house in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is nothing espectacular, but it is nice and comfortable. That said, it is located in a beautiful place. Cross the street and you are on the beach. Walk 110 yds and you are in Iceberg Point Park. The house faces right into the sunset, so the afternoons are very nice. The location is somewhat isolated from the rest of the island, but that is not a big problems since the island is so small that you are never more than 15-20 minutes away from everywhere.

Amazing Location......The House Was Just OK

  • 3 of 5

The pictures on the website of this house are deceiving as they are taken from the back of the house with the bay behind making it seem that the house is directly on the water. It actually sits across a small frontage road from the water, which was completely fine as you just walked across the quiet lane to a very nice pebbled beach with room for chairs, blankets, etc. The house is located a few miles from the ferry dock and the small Lopez Village, so you do have to drive a bit anytime you want to head to the village to shop or dine in the main hub of the island. There is a small grocery about a mile from the house that has a small Mexican food cafe in the back. The house has a fairly large living space with open kitchen, three bedrooms all good sized, and one decent sized bathroom. The house is obviously older and could use some minor updates/repairs. There were plenty of towels, pillows and bedding. One bed was hard as a rock and the other two were a wee bit softer. The furnishings are a mis-mash of different pieces with two small couches in the living area, coffee tables and two chairs, the dining room has a large table with seating for 6-8, fireplace and organ, the kitchen is fully stocked with essential cookware, toaster and coffee pot with an eat in table. The ice maker on the fridge doesn't work, the kitchen faucet was barely functional, leaks and needs to be replaced. The bathroom is done in vintage pink tiles and has a newer shower enclosure. Overall, the location and view out of this house was absolutely amazing and if you don't mind the few things that are a bit rundown then I would recommend this vacation rental.

Owner's Response: The owner is taking care of the windows, the faucet has been replaced, and the ice maker is in the repair process. We appreciate receiving this feedback.
