About the neighbourhood
Many island rentals are on elevated mid to high bank sloped land that can restrict getting to the water and beach making things less safe for children. Our west-mid-island property is central and easy with lots of flat level beach access & a wide open bay for walking or biking outside, this means less driving hassles to get to a nice beach or walking area. If you are into healthy lifestyle living...ie..farm to kitchen, all organic, slow food, ten mile diet, etc. then Lopez is a real treasure as most every food group can be found through local farms and producers from organic: free range eggs thru to local beef, pork, lamb thru to two on island organic bakeries and more. Unless you have your own bio dynamic farm, this kind of experience is less feasible on the other San Juans islands and makes Lopez all the more unique!
How to get there
Lopez VistaBay House: uniquely situated on the only island area where you can experience 1.5 mi of continuous water front/view road that hugs the south shore of Fisherman Bay directly west from the village. Location= 2 mi west of Lopez Village at the junction where Fisherman Bay meets Otis Perkins Beach[ pictured in the photos]. The property is located aprox 250' back and +8' above level grade from the shoreline and road access that continues onto a spit & peninsula island that's site of a seasonal native salmon fishery and nature reserve. Our 1/2 acre lot is flat and covered with a level grass lawn for kids to play. northwest & looking out from our 45' w deck you have an east to west view of the village, Fisherman Bay, ocean & islands.
