Located adjacent to Burton Acres & Jensen Point Park, with 68 acres of walking trails in sage, serene beauty. Beach combing, picnicking, biking, swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing & public boat launch are right at your fingertips.

On nearly an acre of land enjoy our private dock with mooring buoy. Inside every room is tastefully decorated and comfortable. sleeps 10. Updated kitchen with a Viking Dual fuel range, warming oven, Bosch dishwasher, microwave, front load washer and dryer. This kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals. If you don't want to cook, you can enjoy the many fine restaurants nearby. Relax on the lower level with the big screen cable TV & surround sound, on the large sectional. Play air hockey, pool and pingpong. Cozy up with a good book next to one of the two gas fireplaces. Barbecue on the patio, or lounge on the comfy lounge chairs and just be mesmerized by the tide working it's way in or out. Set up an easel and paint your inspiration!

About The Owner

Welcome to our home. We hope you enjoy your stay.

The Owner purchased this house in 1960

What makes this house unique

We are never bored when we are here. There is always some fun activity depending upon the time of year, the weather, and your mood. For those of you that don't like to sit still, there is walking, biking, kayaking, or exploring the Island car. Or for those of you that would would rather relax, it is great just sitting on the patio or in the house and watching the everchanging activity on the harbor and at the park next door that we look down to. This is a place where doing nothing is enjoyable.

Only one problem.....

  • 5 of 5

we couldn't stay longer! The house and all amenities were beyond our expectations. The kids (13-7) were in heaven with all the water toys and a fantastic game room. All three boys (grandsons) want to live there! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need from flipping pancakes to BBQs on the patio. Comfortable beds and the bathrooms served 7 adults and three kids just fine. We will definitely go back. Best house we have rented on Vashon.

The perfect setting for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend a vacation with our kids and grandkids. The property was beautiful and the house well supplied with everything we needed for cooking, sleeping and playing! Thanks for sharing your home with us! We will be back next summer!

Wonderful Home - Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was for business, and we needed a place to stay the same night we arrived. George and his wife were MORE than accommodating to our need for a place on such short notice, and their home was truly fantastic! Beautifully decorated, with high end appointments throughout the house, a game room for playing pool, and the perfect view truly helped our team relax while on Vashon for business. I highly recommend booking this property if it's available. You won't be disappointed! Our only complaint was that we didn't have enough time to fully enjoy everything this property offers - water sports (kayaking, boating), nature trails, and just enjoying all of the amenities the owners have provided for their visitors. Would stay here every time I come to Vashon!

Family Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Three generations met to celebrate Great Grandmother's 90th birthday. Everything was as expected, with the added bonus of paddleboards, kayaks, and a rowboat. The home is very comfortable yet informal. The 11- and 9- year old grandsons slept in the lower level suite, which contains a bathroom, bunk beds, huge sofa, chairs, flat screen TV, pool table, foosball and hockey game table. They were in heaven!

Probably the single comment we will most remember is the 11 year old telling his parents that he wants a Vashon house for his birthday! Dream on...

We loved your home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved your home and we hope it isn’t our last stay on your lovely property. We really appreciated the opportunity to cook in your beautiful kitchen, soak in the lovely water view, take a spin in the kayaks, hike in Burton Acres and enjoy a short respite in the peace of your corner of Vashon island. Thank you!
