WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL HOME ON LOPEZ ISLAND, BUOY AVAILABLE.

Looking for the quintessential Island setting? You will find it in Cedars by the Sea. This lovely waterfront home offers a private beach, fenced grassy lawn, beautiful gardens, spectacular water views, and the convenience of a buoy that is available for guest use.

Indoors there are comfortable furnishings in the great room that invite you to snuggle up by the fireplace with large windows that frame the views. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The master bedroom opens to the deck and features a bench swing. A third sleeping area is an alcove in the hallway that contains a set of bunks, offering a cozy little space for the younger set.

You will likely spend much of your time outdoors on the spacious deck overlooking the water, or exploring the sand and gravel beach. If you bring a boat, inquire about the tie-up conditions for the buoy. This home is situated between the Lopez ferry landing and Odlin County Park, beach, boat launch and dock.

We had an awesome stay at this rental property. The beach is wonderful and the house is very comfortable. We had a bald eagle sitting in the tree you can see in the picture. The pans need updating and we couldn't find any lids! Also, the propane ran out and there was only one dishwasher soap. The property manager reponded quickly for the propane issue.

Looking forward to coming back!

This house and the beach below was exactly what we needed. We kept a small fishing boat at the marina ten minutes away. Caught shrimp, went clamming, came home to look for tiny crabs on our beach at low tide. The house feels comfortable like your grandma's house. The only thing I'd recommend is that they replace the dishwasher. It doesn't really do a dang thing which was obvious by the dishes in the cabinets. The house could do with a deep clean - just dust bunnies and spider webs. But these things did not take away from our thorough enjoyment. The ferry traffic was especially fun to watch coming and going.

Beautiful View but...

We had no trouble finding the place but after retrieving the key we noticed the deck had not been swept in a long time. As we explored the deck we ran into lots of spider webs (yuk). The house was nice and looked clean but there was left over food in the freezer and some old shoes and clothes in the closets. I would have still given a good review if it weren't for the tub in the main bathroom. I had booked this place because it had a large tub but when I tried to use it there was only enough warm water for about 5 inches. Just enough to cover the jets but no way to have a relaxing bath. We had a great time on Lopez but these problems need to be fixed.

amazing views!

We stayed at Cedars by the Sea for a week in early September and had a wonderful time. The home is well-stocked and comfortable with expansive views from the main living area and deck. The home is perfect for a couple or perhaps family, but because the only full bath is a "Jack and Jill" style between 2 bedrooms not as conducive for more than 1 couple. We loved watching the ferries, bald eagle, and sea otters from the deck. We also cooked quite a few meals in and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. The home feels very secluded, but can be a little tricky to find especially if coming in when it is dark. All in all a lovely home and would definitely stay here again.

This view is written from the perspective of San Juan Islands cruisers who needed a place to stay on land for a bit to accommodate family (who don't fit on the boat)

The house is on Shoal Bay, which is a sheltered anchorage. There is a new mooring buoy with plenty of depth and an easy dingy ride to shore. Given the tides, you have to tie off and haul your dingy up the beach. If you have more than one boat coming, this is an easy anchorage with depths less than 30'and a mud/sand bottom.

The house is up a flight of stairs from the beach and affords a great view of Shoal Bay and your boat. This convenience was wonderful and resulted in lots of cool pictures of the boat on its mooring.

The crabbing in the bay is excellent, as is the kayaking. The beach is modest in size and gravelly, but nice to hang out on. And the location is great for popping over to Orca Island, or over to Friday or Roche Harbor to eat and mess around.

Lopez Island is the sleepy San Juan Island with very little to do. Which is good if you boat into this house because there is nothing withing walking distance. For groceries, you are better off taking the boat to Friday Harbor.

The house is quirky and nice. Clearly lived in by its owners who have decorated it in their own personal style. It was spotless with a nice kitchen (although almost no spices or oils--plan accordingly). The laundry was a godsend after two weeks on the water. It is not a great place for multiple couples because you have to share the only full bath and it opens into both rooms. If that doesn't bother you, then no worries.

When we are cruising (usually a month) we always spend around a week on land and in a house. This was a great choice and we will be back. Boating in to a house if fun and a nice break from living in a small space!

I want to live here.

It was so good- the location is way better than the pictures. The beach is nice and the backyard is so good- we just sat in the backyard for the entire day one of the days.

The tub was super gross- the jets are black inside them and nobody would actually use it. And theres only one shower. But it worked for us.

Had a great time at this location with my family. We stayed for 5 days and the location was perfect for getting around and to and from the ferry.

The home was clean and very functional. The view and beach were outstanding. We had an eagle that would perch above the deck and several seals in the harbor just outside. The beach was easy to access.

The home had all the necessary amenities and was very comfortable.

We'd stay here again for sure!

We will be back!

Wonderful house and location! My ONLY negative comment is that the neighbor told us that the private beach advertised was, actually, HIS private beach even though it is directly below our house. Also, the buoy supposed to be for our boat turned out to belong to the neighbor. He let us use it for a few days but then he wanted it for his boat. We had to keep our boat in the driveway and find places to put it. Having our own buoy and beach was a HUGE draw for us to this house and that was very disappointing.

It was a great trip - my wife, her parents and myself - mostly because of the location and amenities offered by this property. From its own private beach on a beautiful, fun and actively-crabbed bay, as well as the level of comfort the property provided with the nice side yard for outdoor activites, a nice deck and all sorts of other nooks and crannies that were interesting. The weather was great, the place was great and we wouldn't have wanted anytime more. Thank you!

the location and view were as advertised, if not better. fantastic deck and yard both with amazing views.

there are two things that could be improved. first, it was noted the there were some basic cooking items such as olive oil, dried spices etc. however, these were dated from 2011 - 3 years out of date. if noting that these things are available, please make sure they are not 3 years past their use by date.
second, there were a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed. i would say 1/3 of the lights were burnt out. there is a leak under the kitchen sink. and the door knob/lock on the side door was loose

We have stayed on Lopez Island several times over the course of ten years. We were soo happy to have our rental experience come off without a hitch. The location was literally minutes from the ferry. We had no problem getting into the house and relieved to have it look and feel just like described. We have had some less than stellar experiences in the past and pleased this one was so easy. We look forward to staying again.

I recently stayed at the Cedars by the Sea with 3 of my friends, and was disappointed overall. On the bright side, the views of the Sound and ferries were amazing, especially at sunset/sunrise...the cabin's location was perfect, the grounds were well-tended and beautiful. We saw bald eagles and otters! However, there was a strong, pervasive smell of mildew/mold throughout the home - a huge issue for one guest with allergies. The carpet and area rugs actually felt damp underfoot. The smell in one side room (with bunkbeds) was so strong it was uninhabitable (and the Renuzit air freshener inside did little to help). Having carpet in the main bathroom compounded the issue, not to mention it felt unsanitary. Screens on the doors/windows might help guests to air out at night (and prevent critters wandering in), as would a de-humidifier. We used both the fireplace and the wood stove at night to help dry things out and warm up the house, but with little relief. It's such a beautiful property and in an ideal location, but the cold, damp, moldy smell/issues will likely not have us returning again.

The house had a good location and great view and was basically clean. Unfortunately, everyone in my family experienced respiratory issues while there. Maybe there is a mold or mildew hidden lurking somewhere, but all of us experienced some combination of congestion, sore throat and runny nose. Out of the house we were better and all fully recovered after a day or 2 back at our own house. We have rented waterfront properties before without these symptoms, but we won't rent this one again. It definitely put a damper on our vacation.

The setting of this house is lovely - the eagle watching was spectacular. The house itself had some issues - loose tiles in the kitchen, shower too small, not as clean as we would have wished. The beds were cozy and comfy, as was the seating in the living area. Overall, the experience of being on the island in such a private setting with great views and an overwhelming sense of peace overcame all. We would certainly visit Lopez Island again.
