Overview

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 3 bedrooms + convertible bed, 3 baths, (Sleeps 6-8). Easy access to beach.

This contemporary three level home was designed by a Portland architect to capitalize on the spectacular view. The spacious open floor plan, outside decks and grounds can accommodate many people comfortably. This is a perfect house for a wedding party, family reunion or retreat.

Choose to relax on the deck as you watch the birds, read a book, watch the sunset, or walk on the beach at low tide. The home is situated on the southeastern tip of Vashon Island with magnificent views of Mt Ranier and Puget Sound. The small country road deadends in a half mile at Manzanitta Beach making this location a very peaceful place.

The beach is at your doorstep. The bulkhead has a seating area, firepit and ramp to the beach. If you have a kayak, it is a perfect place to launch. The beach seems endless allowing for long walks, beach combing or bird watching with bald eagles, herons, cormorants, ospreys and many species of ducks to name a few.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with all the things necessary to prepare your favorite meals. There are also a variety of restaurants in the town of Vashon a short 15-20 minute drive away.

The master bedroom with a king bed and bathroom are on the main level as well as another full bathroom. The kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry and two car garage are also on this level. The upper level has a spacious bedroom with a queen bed and couch that could be used for a child to sleep. A loft is also on this level with a couch. In the daylight basement, there is a bedroom with a queen bed, a full bathroom and a spacious family room with a hide-a-bed. There is also two trifold pads to sleep on as well as a blow-up mattress.

During the summer, Vashon holds several special events including the Strawberry Festival, the Lavender Festival, and weekly farmers markets to name a few. Shopping in some of Vashon's unique shops or wine tasting is also fun.

Vashon Island is a short ferry ride from the Faultneroy dock ( southwest Seattle) or Pt Defiance in northwest Tacoma.

Plan a short or long trip to Vashon Island and book our beautiful home on the beach. It is a very special place.

About Lynn Morris

In 1964, my parents bought an old beach cabin and property. In 1977, my dad, a Portland architect, designed this house. It has been carefully maintained and upgraded through the years and enjoyed by our entire family. My family has enjoyed many vacations here through the years. My two sisters have enjoyed the new and old cabins for a life time as well as some of their kids and grandkids. After my father passed away last year, my mother and I decided that we wanted to do vacation rentals. This is our first summer at doing this. We have a local person on the island who will be available to take care of all the immediate needs since we live off the island. It is a wonderful place and I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy it.

Why Lynn Morris chose Vashon Island

The location of this house was chosen because of the ideal location. It has gorgeous views, southern exposure, away from the traffic, and is located on the beach. It is the 'banana belt' of Vashon Island.

What makes this house unique

This unique location enables you to really experience the beauty and excitement of nature in Puget Sound. There is always some animal to observe, and the sparkling water is breathtaking.

Our Labor Day Family Weekend was a hit!

  • 5 of 5
Our four days Lynn's Family Home went exactly as promised. The setting on South Maury Island was terrific and allowed for walks down to Manzanita Beach, kayaking off the bulkhead, and boating from Dockton Marina. We had a mix of beautiful and crummy weather, what a treat to finally see Mt. Rainier jump out on our 3rd day. The accommodations, while not a high end resort, were very nice and reflects the love and care this family has given this home for several generations.
I found it best to introduce myself to the close-in neighbors on both sides and were welcomed by them and they helped us best negotiate the tight shared parking.
Sure there were things I might have wanted differently (like being able to watch the Mariners Channel), but our whole group of parents and adult children were just so very pleased to have a comfortable and stunning setting for our 'family fest'. I found Lynn to be conscientious and responsive owner. This place is worth considering.

Great view, good accommodations

  • 4 of 5
A nice place for friends to stay. We'll-stocked and comfortable. But only the master bedroom had a good bed. The other two mattresses are kind of old. While the bathrooms were nice and clean, the kitchen cabinets could use a good cleaning. And the furniture should be moved when vacuuming to get all crumbs and dust under the couch.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the constructive comments from the reviewer. We have worked on increasing the comfort of the beds and have just purchased a memory foam addition to one bed and plan on getting another.
I have a great cleaning crew, but they must have missed some under the couch. I will address that issue with them. The dark splatters on the lower kitchen cabinets are unfortunately from floor stain. We have all tried to get rid of them, but can't without destroying the laminate surface. A remodel of the cabinet surfaces is in the future.
Each time we go to our family beach home, we make many improvements and repairs. I think our renters have been very happy with the accommodations and we look forward to providing a wonderful place for many more people to vacation.
Thank you!

Great place for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for our family get together. The views were spectacular, esp. The two bald eagles outside the living room window. We had three families so each family had their own sleeping areas and plenty of room to visit or be alone. Good walking beach with tons of starfish for our Grandson to examine. We picked blackberries for a fresh cobbler as we walked home from Dockton, a sweet historic town to explore. We also enjoyed the public pool in Vashon. The house was very clean and well maintained. Well stocked kitchen with a great barbecue on the large deck. We will return!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
This is such a great place!! We had a mini-family reunion with our kids and grandkids. The house worked so well for us. It is very roomy and comfortable with all the amenities a person could want or need. We spent a lot of time on the deck and enjoying the views of Mt Rainier and the Puget Sound.
The house was clean and well maintained. The gift of coffee and wine was a very nice treat. Lynn, the owner was very helpful and very nice to work with.
Vashon Island felt like we were a long way from a big city, however, Seattle and Tacoma are just across the Sound. And the SeaTac airport is close enough to a ferry for those who need to fly to the area-so our son was able to get here easily.
I would highly recommend this property. We hope to stay here again.

Great location and view!

  • 5 of 5
Five of us stayed at this delightful house for almost a week. The house is located right at the southern tip of Vashon Island, with a stunning view of Mt. Rainier, Tacoma and Puget Sound. A bald eagle and a blue heron were regular early morning visitors. At low tide the beach is walkable, and the roads are also little traveled and make for good walks. Kitchen, beds and other amenities are all fine. The house is at the farthest possible point from the Vashon Ferry (1/2 hr drive), so getting to Seattle requires some planning, but the ferries run frequently and are easy to use. If you're going to arrive after nightfall, definitely have a GPS, as the driveway is not obvious and the house is down a short hill. Vashon Island has plenty to do (kayaking, biking, beaches, forest trails) and several good restaurants, though we cooked most meals on the gas grill. We would definitely stay here again!
