BEACHFRONT, LUXURY HOME WITH AMAZING PANORAMIC VIEW.

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This jewel of an island is located a quick 20 minute ferry boat ride from Seattle but is a paradise getaway from the bustle of life. The house, comfortable but elegant, has a truly breathtaking panoramic view of the Puget Sound and a private deck where you can sit back and watch the sun rise or set.

A private hot tub is located in a garden with a view of the water. Follow the 50 stairs down to the beach where a gazebo and charcoal grill are the perfect place for an outdoor meal and bird watching. Take the kayak out into the Sound as dusk settles on the water. A two acre garden is filled with trees and plants that thrill the most ardent gardeners.

Identified as one of the top summer vacation spots, Vashon Island has fishing, biking, kayaking, horse back riding and hiking for the athletes and art galleries, book stores, free concerts and a movie house. Hunt for shells on your beach walks or just sit back and enjoy the quiet, the solitude, the view of water and sunsets. This island is a hidden secret that will have you coming back year after year...

My parents loved to garden. We lived in Yakima, Washington but as my Dad neared retirement, he and mom wanted a place where they could garden year round and where plenty of rain made growing easier. They bought 2 and 1/2 acres in 1976, built a lovely small house that looks out over the water and created magnificent gardens. We live in Denver but came to Vashon every summer for family reunions and vacations. I see my parents' love for gardens from every room in the house. My brother said that the new kitchen (2010) brought my parent's gardens indoors.

The Owner purchased this house in 1976

My parents are gone now but they have created a place that is unique in its beauty. We love sharing this magical place with renters who like to watch the sun setting from the deck at night, explore the beach, have morning coffee in the hot tub, roam the gardens and pick vases of roses or curl up in the living room with a fire and a good book on a rainy day. A gourmet kitchen fully stocked with utensils, appliances, spices and everything any cook could need was added in 2010.

This is a very private home with a spectacular view of the Puget Sound. A perfect place for rest, retreat and restoration.

BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
The photos don't do justice to this beautiful house. Set in the midst of gardens (wish I could have seen them all in bloom) with views of the water, this house is a wonderful vacation getaway. The house was very clean and filled with light. Because of the surrounding gardens, it felt secluded and peaceful. My two adult sons had a great time cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. I could have stayed on the deck and relaxed the whole time, but since the owner thoughtfully provided lots on brochures with information on things to do on Vashon, and in Seattle, Tacoma and the Olympic Peninsula, we went exploring instead. Working with Madie was a pleasure and very easy, especially considering the short notice we gave her. This is possible the best vacation house I've ever stayed in!

BIRTHDAY GET-A-WAY

  • 5 of 5
The water view captures you as soon as you step inside! We were so fortunate to have a location that was an easy drive for all three of us - from Olympia, Granite Falls and Ferndale and what a wonderful house and grounds to celebrate my birthday with friends. We so enjoyed walking on the beach, watching an eagle in a tree close by, exploring the island, and the super hot tub at the end of the day. The beds are very comfy and the kitchen is a dream to cook in. I also loved the fact that any questions you would ask are provided for you in hard copy - it so worked to have the answers available when you needed them! We look forward to returning.

WHAT A GEM!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first trip to Vashon Island and I wasn't disappointed. The island was totally quaint however my problem was after arriving at this gorgeous house it was hard to leave! What a beautiful and well appointed home. This owner really goes the extra mile with all the little extras and thought to detail. The kitchen was amazing and had everything you could ever want and I mean everything. The views were outstanding, you could sit and watch that view forever. Great for bird watching and I am not even a bird watcher but I spotted some really cool birds. The beds were super comfy with their excellent sheets and comforters. There is nothing that hasn't been thought of in this lovely home. I just returned yesterday and already planning my next trip for a summertime visit. If your thinking of renting a home in Vashon look no further, this home has lots of room to spread out and just relax. Oh I can't forget to mention the hot tub, huge bonus, such a pretty garden setting even in winter I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the spring and summer when everything is blooming. The wood fireplace was really nice and cozy with wood supplied. This home may have been built in the 70's but there isn't a dated feeling about this house very updated but the bones of the house are classic. One of my favorite features were the beautiful hanging Ceiling lamps over the stairwell, talk about creating an ambience! I could go on and on but just want anyone that is looking at this house to really consider it, you won't be disappointed.

BEACHFRONT, LUXURY HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here the last two Christmas weeks. We throughly enjoyed the entire home with all the wonderful upgrades and many outstanding features such as beautiful view of Puget Sound, hot tub, gourmet kitchen, large decks, spacious rooms, fireplace, etc. Having bedrooms on two floors offers privacy. The owner, Madie, is very responsive and delightful to work with.

We thoroughly enjoyed our times there and would fully recommend it. It felt like home
away from home.

WEEKEND IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
The home beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need.
The view gorgeous & covered balcony a big plus.
Location private and seems like no neighbors are close by.
Beach is a little hard to get to if you don't like a lot of stairs.
You have to go down to the beach when the tide is way out if you want to get a walk in.
Bed in den not that great but not bad either. I slept well.
I would suggest removing personal pictures.
I would definitely recommend to friends, in fact, already have!

GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls weekend at this wonderful property. What a beautiful view!! There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room. The kitchen was well stocked - it had everything we needed to prepare great meals. The house was very clean and the owner was very helpful and promptly responded to any questions.
I would recommend this property to anyone.

Vashon Island is a secret jewel - a rural island, home to an active artists' community, an outdoor lover's paradise (biking, kayaking, fishing, beach walking, horseback riding, hiking, birding) - close to Seattle and a 2 hour drive to Mt. Rainier (great hiking), Port Townsend (artist haven) or 4 hour drive to the Olympic National Park. You can take a foot ferry into downtown Seattle for a day at Pike Street Market, museums or Seattle's world class library. The beaches tend to be rocky but full of many wonderful surprises and the swimming is for those who are hardy, but the sun on the water is beautiful any time of day and the sunrises and sunsets are pure magic.

Other Activities: 2 kayaks at the beach for paddling in the Puget Sound
