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. THE PROPERTY CURRENTLY HAS NO BEACH ACCESS, however, 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.

Please note that if you are bring a pet the damage waiver is not applicable. The full security deposit is required.

Reviewer Comments:

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.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was filthy: had to scour the kitchen sink, water had accumulated under sink, mildewed shower curtains in bathrooms, drawers & cupboards jammed with stuff, accumulated dust and dirt everywhere,just to name a few of the unpleasant discoveries. Small beach at high tide only, but only accessible to "rock climbers" down incredibly steep stairs with large rocks to crawl over at bottom. Mosquitoes & wasps in August render the deck mostly unusable for meals. 60s & 70s architecture: multiple levels with stairs everywhere - senior citizen's (and toddler's) worst nightmare. All that said, we sighted a bald eagle, sea lions, sea otter, bunnies, deer and a large variety of birds. Mosquitoes in the morning & evening made neighborhood walks truly uncomfortable. Bring bug repellent if you come in late summer.

Owner's Response: Our apologies for what sounds like a truly unsatisfactory cleaning job prior to this guest's arrival. As all can see from the normal cleanliness reviews from other guests, this is a very unusual occurrence and we cannot imagine how it happened. We always endeavor to deliver homes that are truly ready for occupancy and clean to our high standards. As to the beach access, because of a slide that has occurred during 2016, the access is being changed dramatically for the better. New stairs are being built to replace the old ones and the slope to the beach is much more gradual. The Bees are an issue everywhere in the San Juan Islands during August each year. They are a natural occurrence and we are unable to eliminate them as pests. The months of June and September are much better if avoiding bees and mosquitos are desired. However, August does provide the best weather each year. Submitted by the Vacation Doorways Team

Reviewer Comments:

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cliffside abode! It was quiet, comfortable and homey with lovely large windows that let in the light and sights of the San Juan's, like eagles, dragon flies, bats and amazing sunsets! The deck was a real treat and we loved the open floor plan which allowed mingling while in the kitchen / living room / dining area etc. It was a happy surprise to get to enjoy the robust vintage science fiction collection as well, my husband really got a kick out of perusing all of these artifacts. Very comfortable with great amenities, and a great guidebook put together by the owners of the property! One suggestion: It would be great to have a small bench or seat inside / near the front door to sit and remove your shoes or perhaps stow them. And I would also point out that there are many stairs in the house, so if this is a problem for anyone in your party I would recommend finding a single level house. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we'd love to come back and stay again! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and we could still get to the hustle and bustle of the main town with ease! Thank you for sharing your fantastic and special home with us!
