LUXURIOUSLY FURNISHED 4 BEDROOM VASHON ISLAND HOUSE

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

4BR, 2 bath, sleeps 8 Luxurious Vacation Rental Vashon Island, WA USA

Sojourn House is a one-level, 1,550 square-foot house with a large private back garden with patio. Well built in 1958, it has high ceilings, hardwood floors, and two bathrooms. Special features include Oriental rugs, two large comfy sofas in the living room, original art on the walls, some interesting antique furniture, luxurious 100% cotton bed linens, and down-filled comforters. The master bedroom has its own cable TV and en suite bath. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, full-sized stove/oven, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, and coffee grinder. The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes, glasses, cooking pots, and utensils you could need. You can walk 1/3 mile into Vashon town to restaurants or a movie, or catch a Metro bus into Seattle. NEW! Free Wireless Internet. Sojourn House is one-level and wheel-chair accessible, (with the only hitch being a 27 inch door width into the bathrooms).

Accessible only by ferry boat, the island is a step back in time from the hustle and bustle of the big cities nearby. Visit the lighthouse, or go beach- combing (the closest public beach is just two miles away). Enjoy kayaking (rentals are available), fishing, or diving. Enjoy biking on our hilly roads. Play golf. Or walk half a mile to a restaurant or movie in the village.

This is a great equestrian island, with lots of trails. Horse rentals are available.

Enjoy shopping for antiques, art, and local crafts.

As Sojourn House guests, you can use the Vashon Island Golf and Country Club for swimming, dining, tennis, and golf.

West Seattle is a 15 minute ferry ride away via the car ferries. During commuter hours there is a 30 minute passenger-only ferry service into downtown Seattle. You can catch a Metro Bus into Seattle if you'd like to leave your car at the house.

The excellent Point Defiance Zoo (in Tacoma) is within walking distance of the 'South End' ferry, and a 10 minute ferry ride. Our 4th ferry accessible destination is a 10 minute ride to Southworth on the Olympic Peninsula.

Day trips are possible to three ski areas: Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Stevens Pass, and Snoqualmie Pass. Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helen's, the Olympic Mountains, Hurricane Ridge, and the Hoh Rainforest are all great day trips. Explore Seattle. Go to the opera or a sports event. Fabulous theater and music. One family even went to Victoria, British Columbia on Vancouver Island in one day; but that is a pretty long day!

Guestbook comments from the owner
A wonderful weekend in the perfect place. We are 8 women with a passion for Mah Jong. The 2 tables you set up for us worked great! Good beds, comfortable and charming house.

My husband, Neil, is a retired Boeing engineer, and I'm an antiques dealer. I had 'Owen's Antiques', an antiques shop on Vashon Island for 24 years, but now sell exclusively on the internet. We golf, and play duplicate bridge. We are theater and concert enthusiasts, and enjoy traveling in Europe. Neil skis, and has climbed Mt. Rainier twice. We lived in Teheran & Isphahan, Iran for 2 years. I sing in the 80 voice Vashon Chorale. I enjoy decorating and choosing the furniture, art and accessories at Sojourn House. Neil is active in Vashon's Rotary Club, and is on the board of the island Food Bank. He also helps coach the High School Golf Team.

Gay Jungemann purchased this house in 1993

We live on Maury Island, which is connected to Vashon Island. We live in a 2-story house on acreage. We bought Sojourn House to be our down-sizing retirement home. Sojourn House is all on one level, which is a big plus! It is very centrally located near the small town of Vashon, so we'll be able to walk to the stores, and flag down the bus just across the street. Although the lawn is big, it's flat and much smaller than our current property.

Because we plan to live at Sojourn House someday, we are constantly upgrading and maintaining this attractive and well-built 1950's period 'ranch-style' house.

GREAT SPOT

  • 4 of 5
Our family stayed here during a family reunion/birthday party visit. We found the house very comfortable and convenient. We enjoyed the period decor and found everything we needed. We especially liked being within walking distance of town, so we could easily pick up groceries or go to the farmer's market without having to drive. We would definitely return.

SPACIOUS, CONVENIENT, CLEAN, CLOSE TO VASHON CITY.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time on Vashon. Sojourner house provided a convenient location for all of our family to attend ours daughter's wedding at Triplebrook farm. The house easily accommodated 7 adults, was very clean and had all required kitchen appliances and conveniences. The short walk to Vashon town with its restaurants and shops was especially convenient for us as we didn't always have to make sure a car was available for guests at the house.

GEODUCKING VACATION

  • 4 of 5
The Sojourn house was a great spot for our family to gather for a long weekend. The home is well maintained and all the amenities are covered. We were unable to connect to wireless internet with our computer however. The deck out back with a large yard provided a nice place to eat and relax while the kids played. We couldn't find a large pitcher to mix up powdered drinks but one was brought over the next day. An electric fry pan or something with higher edges would have been nice also. Cooking scrambled eggs for our group was a challenge.

It was nice to be able to walk to town to check out the stores. This location also provided a nice location to be able to go geoducking at Point Robinson and fishing from the Tramp Harbor dock.

Owner's Response: Wish we had been called about the internet problem. We weren't aware that the router had gone bad. It's been replaced, and the free WI-FI system is up and running again!

VERY COMFORTABLE AND WELL APPOINTED HOME.

  • 5 of 5
We were here for my son's graduation from University of Puget Sound. We found the house to be perfect for our family, with comfortable furniture and beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and a very helpful hostess in Gay. Only wish we could have stayed longer. The village with its charming little shops and restaurants is only a short walk away.

WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Sojourn House for a month, and it truly was a wonderful "home away from home." The owners pay careful attention to detail and it shows. The house is beautifully furnished, the beds supremely comfortable, and the kitchen well-equipped. I especially enjoyed the cozy gas fireplace! It was nice to be able to stay in such a wonderful home, and so close to town too! I highly recommend Sojourn House.

Imagine a island the size of Manhattan, but with only 10,000 residents. Imagine 250 miles of paved road with only three 4-way stops, and no other traffic lights. Don't expect souvenir shops or glitz. Vashon Island is upscale rural with a large arts community. There is live music in several venues every week-end. We boast a challenging 9 hole golf course. Vashon has 4 excellent restaurants. No shopping malls. You can get here by ferry, private boat or small plane. But there are no taxis or car rentals. No hotels or motels. Ferrying to, and driving around the Island gives you great views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. Sojourn House is about 1/3 mile from the center of the village. The closest beach is about 2 miles away. Come and experience the unique character of Vashon Island!

Other Activities: Kayaking

Golf: Vashon Golf & Swim Club on the island, plus many good courses nearby but off the Island.
