VASHON WATERFRONT BEACHHOUSE NEXT TO YACHT CLUB

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 bd, 2 bath Inner Harbor, sleeps 8

Located on the prime Quartermaster Inner Harbor, with the best views on the Island.

Our beachhouse, with huge deck and Greatroom layout, is perfectly suited for summer enjoyment and relaxation. There are four bedrooms (three with king/queen beds and one with bunkbeds), two baths and a rec room downstairs with a ping pong table.

An open-concept kitchen, spacious and with views from every window, allows for lots of group cooking and entertaining.

Dining table accomodates 10 for dinner. The piano in the room ensures everyone is entertained!

The massive deck is the best of the house. Watch the boats parade to and from the Quartermaster Yacht Club, as well as the Marina, all day long. Surrounded by towering 200' trees, eagles and cormorants are amazing to watch. Very private, you cannot see neighbors and have your own private beach, dock and walkway. A gas grill is provided for your use.

A state-of-the-art eight (8!) person Hot Springs Hot tub overlooks the harbor as well. Using silver-ion technology, it relies on minimum chlorine, for those with sensitivites. It features a color-lightshow option for evening fun.

Vashon is rural country, but you can walk to the best General Store left in the county, Harbor Mercantile (The Burton Store), a gorgous 10 minutes walk. The Burton Coffee Stand is across the street. The Burton Loop, with it's renowned Kayaking Center, parks and summer camp, are also a walk away. You can flag-stop Metro buses at the front gate of the house, for a ride into Vashon, the ferry, or Seattle. If you're driving, there is room for 4 cars.

The Fourth of July Vashon Fireworks display, which rivals Seattle's, is shot from a barge anchored in the inner harbor, directly in front of our deck. Definitely the best place for the 4th.

In July and August, Blackberries rule the island, and the sweetest and fattest come from this part of the island, everywahere you look. Recipes for ice cream, preserves, pie and sauces are in the cupboard. The sweet fragrance permeates the island!

Bill and Suzanne Anderson have enjoyed every summer here with their three kids. They joke it's the easiest weight-loss there is, to come to the Island and have 10 lbs lifted off your shoulders!

Suzanne is a painter, yet has never painted the view from the house or deck. 'It changes every 10 minutes, there's no way to capture it!'. Or do it justice.

Suzanne Anderson purchased this house in 1997

It's the Inner Harbor! The Yacht Club is wonderful to watch, the animal sea life is amazing, and kids can row everywhere. Our heritage trees keep our deck private, and we're a walk from Burton and its charms. And it's the perfect height from the beach: Low enough to get to easily, but high enough for a killer view.

The only private dock allowed in the innerharbor because it's grandfathered in. Motorcraft under 40' can load/offload guests right at the dock. Or folks can use our rowboat. Or bring their canoes or kayaks!

On July 4th, the island comes to our doorstep. The fireworks are shot from a barge moored in front of our deck. Fire up the BBQ and jump in the hot tub, it's the best place in town.

BEAUTIFUL VIEW

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for ourselves and our adult children while visiting another adult child and grandkids living nearby. It was a great house for our family and for day and overnight visits with our grandkids, with multiple activities nearby and plenty of room for all. The house has a beautiful 180 degree water view with a large deck on which to sit and enjoy it as well as a great, private hot tub.

SO RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week and we loved it! Very comfortable, lots of room. Great views! Loved watching boats, otters, and harbor seals from the deck and the hot tub. Navigation around the island is really easy. I liked how the ferries and buses synched up so well. Lots of cute shops in town and a number of good restaurants. My kids had fun searching the beach for shells and walking to the general store (about 15 minutes) for ice cream and penny candies. I liked walking to the local coffee/tea place. Very quiet and peaceful. A perfect relaxing vacation for us.

LOVELY HARBOR VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed all this home had to offer, especially the large hot tub and beautiful views from the living room and kitchen! The weather was perfect for strolling he beach, taking the rowboat out, visiting the local Vashon pool, and making dinner on the large deck. It was easy to get to the house from Kitsap or downtown Seattle. We had a fun and relaxing vacation with our 4 young children!

WONDERFUL RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful stay this summer at the Vashon Beachhouse. The house is truly lovely, roomy but somehow still cozy and has all the amenities a family could want in a vacation house and more (comfortable rooms with character, balcony overlooking the bay, a dock with rowboat, piano, ping pong table, hot tub, a full stock of games, books, and videos, wifi, a full kitchen with all appliances, full utility room with W/D), and everything is in very good condition. It is also perfectly situated on the island, within easy walking distance of a quaint store and a nature park, but not in a busy or noisy area. There is also plenty to do on the island - we went hiking, biking, running, kayaking, berry picking, shopping, and wine tasting. The owner was also very helpful throughout the whole process. Everyone in our family loved their stay from our youngest daughter to Grandma - we all wished we could have stayed longer and look forward to coming back!

VASHON AT ITS BEST!!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Vashon Beach house. Situated just above the yacht club, we could sit on the deck (or in the hot tub) and watch the harbor activities. The home is totally equipped, private and comfortable. Within walking distance to the tiny town of Burton (with a great coffee stand) and the peninsula "Loop" walk. There are plenty of hikes and boating activities nearby. We made most of our meals at home (there is also great BBQ on the deck), but there are some cute restaurants in Vashon town. The home owner, Susan, was most helpful and welcoming.
We would recommend this property.

The houses is located in the protected Inner Harbor, next to the Yacht Club. The sea is calm; seals visit. Watch a parade of boats from the deck, all day during Summer. Walk to the Burton Coffee Stand in the morning and chat up the locals; the Harbor Mercantile General Store has everything you need, including decent wines! The town of Vashon is 7 minutes away by car or bus, which stops at your gate.

Activities include walking and exploring, beachcombing, kayaking (avail. 5 minutes away), shopping the eclectic stores and renowned art galleries, biking, or take the foot ferry directly into downtown Seattle for the day. Come home with your fish and veggies from Pike Market, and grill them on the deck with a chilled glass of wine. Life rarely gets better that that.
