WATERFRONT DREAM HOME WITH HOT TUB ON DECK

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This wonderful house is Vashon Island's ONLY VRBO PROPERTY offering a pristine sandy beach on the warm, sunny Puget Sound east side of the Island and within easy distance from the Seattle ferry. It's 180-degree view soars over an 11-mile expanse of water towards majestic snow-capped Mt. Rainier. While only 4 minutes by car from the Seattle Ferry dock, it enjoys perfect quiet due to the protection of Dolphin Point. Augmenting this exclusiveness is its “Residents-Only” access road. The house is located on over two miles of open beach from the Vashon Ferry Dock to the Muckelshoot Shellfish Reserve. It includes Winghaven, your neighborhood park, which is a little-frequented kayaking destination with walk/paddle-only accessibility and which has an area for frisbee or croquet (provided). The only thing left to do is read Betty McDonald's 'Onions in the Stew', written about this beach from her house nearby.

Imagine an evening soak in the Tiger River deluxe spa, stars overhead and city lights in the distance! Its Freshwater ozone filtration system requires only minute chlorine for freshness. Enjoy the hydromassage jets or just soak in the quiet of the waves on the beach.

Enjoy views from every room. Prepare meals while virtually floating over Puget Sound with the music of the waves on the beach 8 feet from your house. Morning coffee or an evening cocktail from one of the lanais, privacy for two while the others do the dishes? BBQ at the Waterfront? Dine at the deck’s picnic table or at the dinner table for 8 in the expansive living area? Relax on leather couches. Private bedrooms feature comfortable plush beds (no 'hide-a-beds' in the living room!). The game room downstairs features X Box, Nintendo, board games, kids books, and toys. Enjoy beachcombing, beachglass gathering, and low tide wildlife viewing (guidebooks provided).

Paddle the house canoe, walk the beach, walk 20 minutes to the Ferry Dock's restaurant for dinner or drinks in their waterfront bar. The latte stand there is open for early risers. Our newly famous La Boucherie, a farm-to-restaurant, reservations only, gem graces Vashon town. Or, stroll onto the West Seattle Ferry for a fun ride to Endolyne Joe's Eatery for a variety of menu items and Northwest brews on tap. The Passenger-Only boat will transport you to fabulous Elliot Bay and downtown Seattle and back in the afternoon (cheap cruise).

Walking south, pass Winghaven Park to the huge tract of land owned by the Mukleshoot Indians. The tribe has a small oyster and gooey duck clam hatchery on its beach. The town of Vashon is 6 just miles away by car. It offers a gourmet grocery with excellent wine offerings, open-air Saturday farmer’s market, specialty shops, bookstores, fine restaurants, art galleries, bakeries, movie theater and more.

Please note: House is not suitible for parties or large family gatherings. We have an 8 person maximum occupancy at any one time, day or night. Parking is limited to 2 standard size cars.

We are sailors and ardent water/wildlive lovers.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We searched for years to find the 'perfect' waterfront property. We finally gave up. The very next day, we found IT. Read whatever philosophy into this you like, but it is truly a 'dream house' in every way for us.

With an acre of land behind it, long sandy beaches, big tides, large tracts of land nearby, the house is so serene!. We love beachcombing or trail hiking, our boat out in front for day sails. We glean firewood from logs afloat and mushroom hunt in the cooler seasons.

PEACE AND QUIET WITH AN INCREDIBLE VIEW

  • 5 of 5
My daughter moved to West Seattle from west Texas with her husband and my grandson (now 11) a year and a half ago and I had not seen them since, so I decided to come to Washington to see them. I'm so glad I chose this house for us to stay in! It was very clean and spacious. The trail/stairs down to the house is long and steep - but well worth it. The view is spectacular to put it mildly. We were blessed with some sunny days so we could see Rainier. Even on cloudy days, the view is so beautiful. We had such a wonderful, relaxing time! My grandson spent an entire day throwing rocks into the water. We saw otters, bald eagles, a loon (love that call) and even Orcas one morning (about 3 we thought). We never even left the island until I had to get to the airport. We loved exploring Vashon. The house was a great place to spend time with my family after so, so long! Christine and Jim greeted us when we arrived and were very kind and accomodating.

SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved our stay here! The scenery is so beautiful, the house was immaculate and well-kept, beds comfortable, privacy wonderful. We love to stay in a home, versus hotel, so we can spread out and feel comfortable while enjoying the area. This location is so unique and gorgeous. The night moon shining on the water was just awesome...not to mention the gorgeous views of Mt. Ranier. The steep drive down - is initially intimidating...but was no problem at all once we got used to it. Be aware that as the owners describe.....there are numerous steps down into the home, so getting back to the parking pad can be challenging, if you have any health issues, disabilities, or are out of shape! BUT... so worth the effort!!!!

Owner's Response: We so much enjoy providing the house to "women's retreats"! The ladies love the view and being so close to the water without even having to leave the house , especially in winter, if they don't want to. On deck hot tub is next fav. with terry robes right there. The new kitchen with EVERYTHING is next so yummy cooking happens. We personally appreciate our visitor's the enthusiasm for the place, which we share. Thanks for the great post!

A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed her over the New Year"s holiday with another couple and what can I say yes the stairs are challenging, but worth it when you reach the house and look at the amazing view. This house has everything you could need. On New Year's eve we where in the hot tub and at midnight when the fireworks started it was incredible. It is better then what it shows. Jim and Christine thank you so much for allowing us into your little piece of heaven. Carlos, Maria, Rosanna and Frank.

Owner's Response: We have great visitors! House attracts people who really love natural beauty and who can walk down the short trail to get to the waterfront. The house is not suitable for folks with troubles walking, so sorry, and we cannot welcome pets. Dolphins, otters, eagles, seals and an occasional orca can substitute for pets . I left out seagulls, deer and racoons. They come too.

GREAT PLACE FOR A REUNION!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I hosted three other couples at this Vashon Island location for a 35-year high school reunion. One couple wanted to watch the Giants in post-season baseball on TV. One couple wanted to go stand-up paddling on Puget Sound. Another wanted to walk in the many Vashon waterfront parks. Another wanted to enjoy the local Vashon culture. All of us enjoyed fresh food from the local Thrifway and gourmet meals in the well-appointed kitchen. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed everything about this house; lots of space, clean rooms, hot tub, lots of hot water, the wood stove, the views of Puget Sound, local birds, the walk along to the beach to the Ferry terminal, picking local apples, meeting the neighbors... The owners are also exceptionally nice and love the area themselves. You can tell. I sincerely recommend this house for just about any event I can think of. We had a great time. Finally, the listing was very accurate as I had never seen the location before staying there - I was very impressed. The owners also gave a thorough tour of all the features available.

Canoe provided. Sand toys and floats for the kids. BBQ. There are two parks down the beach which are accessed only by the waterfront. They have lovely, wooded trails, extensive property and are located in a southerly direction from the house. Walk on beach to the north and round Dolphin Point where you can dine at a Mexican bar/restaurant. You may want to rent kayaks for the week of your stay. They are available and can be delivered to you. Collect beach glass which you will find in profusion. The neighbors are friendly but few. On the 4th of July you are welcome to set off fireworks on the beach, carefully of course. There is a beautiful but narrow paved private road to house. It is a switchback and runs through a beautiful forest with some mammoth Douglas firs. Vashon has many Land Trust/Parks trails. Maps provided. Dockton Park has a swim float, many fellow bathers, warm showers for you as you exit the water. Saturday Market is a marvelous place to shop, mix, listen to music, view Vashon crafts, weavings, sample baked goods, including fire baked pizza. There are many Concerts in the Park during the summer. Check Vashon Park District website for details. Strawberry Festival, mostly music, not mostly strawberries, happens in July. The Lavender Festival. Other Vashon events change annually. However, these are remote from the pristine privacy of the house and are easily avoidable if desired.
