AN ADORABLE WATERFRONT BUNGALOW WITH BEACH & INCREDIBLE SUNSETS

The term quintessential is often over-applied to the descriptions of romantic lodging in the San Juan Islands, but when it comes to Tranquility Base, it is simply appropriate. When you imagine a solitary retreat, time away with a special someone, or a small family vacation, this wood-shingled bungalow is likely just what you have in mind.

Tranquility Base is tucked away on the quiet south end of Lopez Island, perched over a cobalt blue bay. The setting is quite private, naturally landscaped, and focused on the gorgeous expanse of water that opens to the channel in the distance and the setting sun as it drops over the island. There is beach access from the property and alternate beach access is available by continuing down Sperry Road approximately three tenths of a mile to a public boat launch area.

The home was recently remodeled and the rich new wall colors and contemporary furnishings are a compliment to its essential;y cabin character.. The tasteful styling also has touches of personal design whimsy that will be a delightful surprise when you arrive. The rooms are placed on multiple levels with the kitchen, living, and dining areas on the main level. The kitchen is well equipped, opens to the newly expanded deck, and offers a breakfast bar overlooking the living room. The dining area is across the living room and also opens to the deck. A bathroom with shower is located on this main level as well.

On the middle level, there are two cozy bedrooms, each with a new queen size bed. Each bedroom opens to a shared bathroom with a tub/shower. One might also restrict use to one of the bedrooms to create an en-suite master bath. A small loft with low dormer ceilings on the third level contains a comfy full size/full height aerobed that would be suitable for a teen or single adult. The stair railings and other construction elements within the home make this property unsuitable for children under 8 years of age.

Fans of film and audiophiles will not feel adrift in this cabin by the beach because there is a BluRay DVD system, ROKU for streaming HBO-GO, Amazon Prime, Netflix, and an iPod input to the TV sound system. Those less technology inclined may also enjoy the retro phonograph/CD/Radio.

Come, relax and explore Tranquility Base. You’ll feel you’ve left the world behind. A small dog may be considered. Click HERE to see a video of the property.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a great house with spectacular views and eclectic decor that we really enjoyed. One of the best we've stayed in during our several decades of visiting Lopez. However, we asked about boat moorage and were told there was a buoy we could use. There was, and we did, but if you leave a boat on a mooring buoy the assumption is that you'll have a way to get to and from shore. In order to access the worst beach we've ever had in the islands, you have to creep down the steep slide that happened in 2016 and climb down over tumbled tree trunks and boulders. We managed to create a tiny spot that we could carry our inflatable dinghy to after removing the motor, crab bucket, etc. Every time we launched it was the same procedure - empty everything from the boat, carry it past sharp, barnacle encrusted boulders on the usual slippery muddy beach, launch it, track the mud all over the boat on the buoy, go pick up guests at the Hunter's Bay dock since the women couldn't get to the beach and one was in a shoulder sling from recent surgery. Repeat this every time you want to use your boat. Do not rent this place if you're planning to bring a boat, unless you arrange dock space somewhere on the island. The owner's response to a complaint about beach access states that due to the 2016 slide 'the access is being dramatically changed for the better. New stairs are being built...' There are no stairs, and no sign of any being built in the near future.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest - thank you for choosing to visit us in the Islands and for choosing one of our most unique, and special properties in Tranquility Base. We also appreciate your feedback. Tranquility Base does offer a mooring buoy and the beach is accessible to zodiac style boats. But depending on tidal conditions the access may be better or worse than it is at other times. We recommend if you are using the mooring buoy and depend on regular access to the beach to please consult tidal charts and determine the best times and locations to commute back and forth. In terms of the difficult access from the house to the beach this is the circumstance the owner is in process on fixing with a series of steps and stairs to make the arrival and departure from the beach much easier. The issue in this circumstance (and this is being rectified now), is that once we knew work was planned to correct the situation, the note was put in the house book to that effect. The mistake we made was not updating that note when the work did not happen as planned (contractor issue which is sort of standard in the Islands). We apologize for this; it is never our intention to state things as anything other than what they are in reality. We do very much appreciate your candid feedback and we do hope you decide to return to the Islands. If you do, please contact us ahead of time so we might find just the right property fit for your vacation needs. Best Regards, General Manager

This is a beautifully designed house with lots of great touches and a great peaceful view. Good for solo travelers looking for R&R or couples (or a family). Out of the way but close to the Southend Store, which has good provisions and a surprisingly good restaurant.

Reviewer Comments:

We just returned from a 4 night stay at Tranquility Base #321 and couldn't be happier. The house itself was wonderful, a real piece of art, with a wonderful feel and layout. The owners supplied much more than what was needed, especially in the kitchen. The view from the house and numerous decks were fabulous, especially at sunset. The house is located in southeast Lopez Island, which is quite beautiful and very private. We loved kayaking in the protected bay in front of the house. We saw lots of wildlife in the bay, including otters, harbor seals, eagles and osprey. We have rented numerous vacation homes in the past. This house is our favorite.

The cabin and its location was an amazing home away from home. From the breathtaking views in the morning to the beautiful sunsets, to everything one would need to be more than comfortable, there was no need to go anywhere on the island.
