(We) Mike & Hillary live on Vashon Island, WA. We have been in the vacation rental business for the past 10 years. During the past decade, we have honed the craft of setting up cozy spaces for 'on-the-go' people needing a short term respite. We are also travelers, so we know how significant it is to settle into a home-away-from home while living a transitory existence. We believe that providing a place to stay is an act of hospitality, so we do everything we can to help you feel invited, settled, and restful~ We have hosted many traveling medical & military professionals in our Deluxe, Downtown Tacoma & Seattle Condos. We just added our Vashon Beach Front Apartment to the mix with our recent move to Vashon Island (a magical get-a-way) for a day, a week, or a month. Come relax on an island while being a short ferry ride from downtown Seattle.

Hillary purchased this apartment in 2012

Vashon Island is magical. We've heard this phrase more times than we can count. If you do a Google search of Vashon plus New York Times you will come across an article titled: A Trip Across Water, and Time, from Seattle which captures the essence of the island~ Pure Magic.

The Beach Front Apartment is right on the BEACH and the WATER. We fell in love with this home because it feels like you are on a boat...the sunrises and the Harbor Tide and Bird Activity are added bonuses to a relaxing vacation on the water. Never a dull moment, truly.

ENJOYED THE QUIET BEAUTY OF BRIGHT BEACH FRONT

  • 4 of 5
The 24/7 view from Bright Beach Front was majestic and breathtaking. The peaceful stillness of the boats moored in this quaint harbor lulled me into the much needed respite. I was pleasantly surprised by the quiet tranquility within the apartment. A tidy, cozy place to recharge while enjoying the view.
Hillary was the perfect host and helpful in every way. Her restaurant recommendations were great. Thank you for the certificate to Cafe Luna. They have the best bagels and smoked salmon on the planet. The Hardware Store served us a marvelous breakfast in a charming contemporary atmosphere. Don't forget to add a bowl of the famous Clam Chowder. Yes, it was the best ever. Oh, and the donuts... don't go near them, they are... well just say indescribably delicious.
My time at Bright Beach Front exceeded all my expectations. I will enjoy the hot tub on the next go around.
Thank you Hillary.

LOVELY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This beach rental had a fantastic, central location and a lovely, accommodating host. My son loved looking for crabs on the beach (there are many to find) and found a good selection of shells as well. He loved the "mini bathtub" too. Charming vacation rental and we would stay again!

LOVELY CONTEMPLATION BASE

  • 5 of 5
I spent nine months in the waterside apartment, enjoying the view out over the quiet of Quartermaster Harbor. Breathing in the pattern of this tidal harbor watching eagles, geese and heron. Enjoying the changing play of light throughout the day and the seasons.

The apartment felt cozy yet provided a lot of natural light, with all the amenities I needed.
Mike and Hillary were friendly and accommodating host and hostess. Communicative, amenable, supportive and responsive when necessary.
They also easily and readily honored my privacy and boundaries. Something I am particular about.

This is a great place for contemplation and relaxation. Yet I was close enough to the city to get to events, galleries, festivals, etc. and then back to another world, the island world.

Vashon itself has great food, people and options too.
I'd be back if life wasn't bringing me to another island!

Owner's Response: Thanks Thomas for the great description of your nine-month stay in the Vashon Beach Front Apartment.

We appreciate your artistic energy...including the hand-painted rocks decorating the beach front...which you kindly "left behind" for all to enjoy.

Thank you!

& Enjoy your next Island experience~ (Hillary & Mike)
