(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.
...about the location & the commute...there is a boutique grocery store to fill in all your cooking needs & an amazing Burton Coffee Stand located less than a mile from the house (in Burton) with regular ferries & buses (this home is on the bus line) to West Seattle (Fauntleroy terminal on the North end of the Island, 13 min. drive) and to Tacoma (Tahlequah terminal on the South end, 10 minute drive). Monday through Friday (morning & evening) there is also a walk-on ferry to the heart of downtown Seattle.
