The Coulter House provides a getaway, beachfront opportunity for you and your family. Nestled on 100 ft of waterfront along the east side of beautiful Quartermaster Harbor, the home has magnificent sunsets and views of the Olympic Mountains from the large deck, master bedroom and living areas. The charming, vintage island home has the original knotty pine interior and a roaring fireplace to create an atmosphere of warmth and relaxation. You can do some beach combing in Quartermaster Harbor or visit some other close by beaches at the Point Robinson light house or Ellisport. 2 canoes are available for paddling around the Harbor. This home is completely furnished and ready to go for a great relaxing vacation. The deck has a wonderful view of the water and of the sunset. Additional Photos are available by email upon request.
We spent three night in this beautiful home on Vashon Island and it definitely was not enough. The home is very clean, well stocked and was comfortable and inviting. The owner is very nice to deal with. It is an easy Ferry ride from West Seattle which is close to the airport and downtown. We took the Ferry to Seattle and went to the Pike PLace Market one day and really enjoyed it but we had a hard time deciding to go as we hated to leave the house. We had a nice fire one night and two beautiful sunsets. It was also fun to walk on the beach and pick up shells and sand dollars. We will be back. This was our 7th annual family girls weekend. We had my 85 year old aunt down to my 35 year old daughter. Everyone was comfortable and had a great time. Larry, Thank You for opening your home so that we can enjoy such an amazing place. Diane and family
The Coulter House was an absolutely wonderful vacation home for our family get-together! We loved our stay at this house, and our group had kids, parents and grandparents. The house was clean, very well-equipped and had plenty of space. The beach access was fantastic and the kids spent most of their time at the beach and in the canoe and kayak, which were so great. The view from the deck is just beautiful. We had thought we would spend more time out and about in the area, but the house was so fun and welcoming, we could hardly come up with a reason to leave! We'd definitely recommend it for other renters - it was just great.
We stayed 10 days and it was hardly enough. My whole family came together on Vashon in June, coming from Seattle, Sun Valley and California. We loved spending our time together at the Coulter house. There was room for everyone: the layout of the house allows gatherings in the living room, or the separate family room or out on the deck. The sleeping arrangements were great with really comfy beds and everyone found their spot. The kids played games on the grass next to the water every night; and they were in the canoe constantly. There are actually two large decks. One right on the water with a firepit (which we used every night) and the second one off the living room and looking over the harbor.
I can't say enough good things about this vacation. My grand daughter, Callie, says it was her favorite vacation ever. We'll be back. The Bourgettes.
This was an amazing home for our family to get together for our son's wedding. Spacious living quarters, for the family, beautiful views, plenty of grills for the outdoor cooking, and very clean accomodations. So the luxury of being in a "HOME" away from home was the closeness we were seeking and received. The island is beautiful, the people very friendly and the neighbors were wonderful in assisting our questions. We never encountered any problems, which was a blessing, for the beautiful home is well worth visiting and staying for any extended length of time. If our travels take us back to Seattle, this is exactly where I want to be. Beautiful memories from a beautiful place. We highly recommend this home.
We loved our summer stay at this house with our extended family, with 10 people including two sets of parents, four young children, and two grandparents. And we'd definitely recommend it for other renters.
The house was spacious, clean and very well-equipped. The bedrooms were comfortable and quiet. And the location is ideal for Vashon Island, right above the beach and with a decent-sized lawn for the kids to play on during high tide.
My "extended" family and I came from across the U.S. to enjoy the Vashon Island wedding experience of my eldest brother. This wonderful and well-equipped house served as a central gathering place for not only my family staying at the house, but for friends and family from both sides attending the wedding. The accomodations were spacious. The house came with everything we could need. The Friday night barbeque we had on the landing by the beach was beautiful. The day following the wedding allowed us to host an 80th birthday party with fun in the sun, relaxation, and plenty of space to unwind. Vashon Island is fabulous and this is a must stay in vacation spot. We appreciate the home-feel of the place which allowed us to celebrate family style away from home!
The owners and I corresponded by phone and e-mail over the course of several months. They also checked-in to make sure everything was ok both on our first day and our last. It was an easy drive into the town or to the ferry. The house was clean, as pictured, and directions for clean up at the end of the week were clear! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone wishing to relax and truly enjoy Vashon!
