Overview

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...

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Vashon Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly special get-away! We enjoyed sharing this comfortable home and its amenities with family while visiting from Texas. The landscaping and grounds are beautiful and have a secluded feeling. The view of the inlet is breath-taking. The home itself is roomy, updated, comfortable, and efficient. I highly recommend this property and will most definitely stay there again while visiting our son who lives in Seattle! Great experience!

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Madie for sharing your home! We happen to live on this beautiful island, but at that time we were renovating our home and needed to be out for the week. So it was great to have a place to go to that was not only lovely but very calm. Just what we needed. It's a place well worth to rent. Still close to everything on the island but very private.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

I came here for the weekend with a few of my girlfriends for a relaxing weekend away from our mom and work duties. The home was very well maintained, clean, spacious, and well equipped. We cooked, we walked on the beach, we relaxed and read books with a gorgeous view of the water. I highly recommend this home for group gatherings, and would imagine that it is also very kid-friendly as it comes with a baby gate for the stairs and a pack and play (though I was happy to not have a kid to see for sure :) ). I can imagine returning, though, with my kids and bringing along 1-2 other families as well (there is a LOT of sleeping space!).

Exquisite home on Vashon Island

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I stayed at this exquisite home for a weekend retreat. I say "home" because it feels warm and inviting. Beautiful gardens surround the home, with something to pique our interest from every angle. In fact, out the kitchen window is a breathtaking view -- a small maple that, even in the middle of winter, captivated us with it's coloring and shape. We could have stayed for days more, strolling the beach, cooking sumptuous meals in a state-of-the-art kitchen, reading, and just relaxing. We will most definitely return.

delightful

  • 5 of 5

...a charming cross between a bungalow and an art studio...comfortable,light and airy but tucked amongst tall trees in a lush setting, with an in-your-face waterfront view...

...where lovely framed paintings/prints and art work are not displayed on walls there

are large, uncluttered windows that frame views of trees, garden, or water...

...this cozy retreat seems to reflect the escapist theme of the island itself...distant from

the city life, which is a mere ferry ride away, but welcoming with friendly folks...

...there are gentle hints of the property's history in photos and books that give a respectful appreciation of the renovations that are tastefully being done...

...addl island suggestions: the Farmer's Market (in season)as unique as the island; the mouth-watering Snapdragon bakery & café; the Vashon Country Club conveniently located less than a mile from the house & now open to the public for dining

....hopefully a bridge will never be built to Vashon that would encourage busloads of tourists, traffic, and big box stores

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!

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
