Fish from the deck at high tide! Two charming cabins at the water's edge in beautiful Tramp Harbor on Vashon Island. Beautiful south facing Sound and Mountain views . Main cabin has eat-in kitchen, living room, bedroom that sleeps two and bathroom with shower. Secondary cabin is a bunk room that sleeps six with a half bath. Large deck area with jacuzzi, fire pit and built in picnic table.
My wife and I needed to stay on Vashon for a friend's wedding, and decided to make a long weekend out of it. We are extremely happy that we chose this place! Even though on a clear day you can see Seattle waterfront neighborhoods like SeaTac and Des Moines off in the distance, you truly feel like you're on an island vacation far from big city reality. Sitting in the hot tub on a deck that's basically IN the Puget Sound, while watching the sun come up and taking in the view of Mt Rainier's majesty to the south, was breathtaking. Lanette was a pleasure to communicate with, and this place had more than enough of everything we could need. Highly recommended for anyone who loves to be close to the water while vacationing... because you couldn't be closer than this place unless you vacationed on a boat. (Speaking of which: there is a very sturdy row boat you can use at this rental!). This is a great getaway that's a bargain, and just a short ferry ride from Seattle. Lastly, the bunk house was an unexpected surprise: It has two full beds, a set of bunk beds, a TV with cable, and a cute half-bathroom. If you bring the kids, they'll love it.
We had an outstanding time! The views from the cabin are incredible! Every morning we awoke to Mt Rainier and 2 bald eagles outside. Awesome! If you want 5 star facilities and fancy toiletries and such, this isn't for you. It's an older cabin and not everything works perfectly. However, everything you need is provided. Not to mention, there is a Thriftway grocery store 5 minutes away. Be advised a ferry ride is required and it was $30 round trip for our car and 3 people. Lanette was very nice and great to work with. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be back!
Lots of nice amentities, good kitchen, wood burning fireplce, and hot tub. We loved the view from the outdoor deck especially from the hot tub! This location is perfect for kayakers as you are literally on the waters edge from the deck. I wish there were kayaks supplies but we had fun exploring in the row boat. This place would be good for a couple or smaller family not for big gatherings. My only qualms were the small things needing repair but these were very minor concerns. We would definitely come back to stay here again.
My family really enjoyed the cabins. We loved being right on the beach, fishing and combing for sea shells. The cabins were clean, fully stocked with all needed kitchenware, towels, bedding and new appliances. A great time had by all. Thank you for sharing this sweet spot on the shore. We will be back.
We attended our cousin's wedding on Vashon and had the pleasure of staying at the cabins. We had a lovely time. The cabins are convenient to the ferry and town. Four of us stayed at the cabins, they are quite comfortable and with the deck space, spacious. We hung outside on the decks a lot. We even had a great family bbq one evening complete with smores out by the firepit! Thank you so much for sharing your family's getaway with our family!
Tip for new travelers to Vashon, take a map! It is very easier to get turned around and lost!
Our family of five had a wonderful time staying here and exploring Vashon Island! The property is located directly on the water with great views of Mount Rainier. Highly recommend visiting Seattle in late July - the weather was absolutely perfect - sparkling sunshine and temps in the 70s & 80s.
This property is a perfect getaway for families - our kids loved the separate bunk house! Both the main house and bunk house were spotless with lots of recent updates - very nice. We loved the classic beach decor. We had a great time fishing off the deck at high tide, and enjoyed campfires at night. A highlight of our stay was the visits from a falcon, who would circle high in the air around the cove in front of the house and divebomb for fish dinner - the falcon caught many more fish than we did! Definitely a rare and amazing sight.
We enjoyed exploring the island - Vashon is a very pretty place, with lots of nice places to walk on rocky Puget Sound beaches, beautiful forested land, and a quaint downtown with neat shops and good restaurants.
Highly recommend this property and Vashon Island for a vacation!
