About Joe or Caroline

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments in the handwritten guestbook have been great. Here are some excerpts...



"It was very relaxing and fun walking on the beach..just what we needed. The cabin itself was great.. very well equipped and comfortable. I'm sure we'll be back!"D,M&O O

"WOW! Where do we begin? Our week on Vashon Island in this cabin was a vacation never to be forgotten! The beautiful harbor, boats, and changing leaves provided a backdrop for restfullness and dreaming.... We hope to return again!"M&L Oklahoma

"The cabin was way above our expectations! The pictures & description on the internet do not give it justice. (We)lucked out when we found your beautiful treasure. We will definitely be back soon!"



Year 'round comments include so many great stories of beach walking and kayaking. There were even some good fish caught from just off the beach. A five year old got up for the first time on water skis and many a kid enjoyed kayaking around the shore.



Everyone has been happy and we continue to enjoy hearing what people have liked best. Repeat customers are becoming the standard saying that they'll be back every year.

2008 is just beginning but inquiries have been brisk with many people trying to plan for weddings and other summer events.



Hope to see you as a guest soon.

Summertime on Vashon

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at your cozy cabin! The view from your deck was the perfect Vashon Island summertime view. We played on the beach everyday and picked blackberries--the kids want to buy kayaks now. We were glad to be able to use the cabin as a homebase for visiting family and friends. Perfect location. We were so busy we hardly had time to read on the deck! And the dogs loved it, too. Thanks!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We chose this location as it was right on the water and allows pets. We live close by in West Seattle but wanted a weekend away to relax and get away from the grind. Everything was what we expected, and the views were breathtaking. Owners left clear directions on the cabin and suggestions on local tips.
The weather took a turn for the worst the say we arrived so we spent a lot of time indoors watching movies or checking out the local areas and trying restaurants they recommended. The Hardware Store was wonderful! The property is stocked with anything you may need or have forgotten. It's definitely a cabin feel, and alot of property down on the beach. We love Vashon and would definitely be back. The local folks and vibe is amazing and very refreshing and definitely more our style.

Nice Place, but Evidence of Rodents

  • 3 of 5
This was a nice little house but alas there seemed to be rats in the basement. Once they get that taken care of, it will be a great place.

Owner's Response: We did have a problem back in November, which we took care of. We have multiple electronic traps placed to keep this from being a problem. Traps get checked before each visit

Title is accurate.

  • 4 of 5
This cottage had an exceptional view, right on the water. It did not feel homey or cozy. The basement was not finished. They offered a washer and dryer but the washer was difficult to start and there were no directions or 'hints'.
The kitchen was adequate with cooking equipment. There was a gas 'pot belly' stove but no explanation that it would heat the whole place. Bed and linens were nice.

Owner's Response: When you arrive at our cabin you will find a welcome booklet that covers some things you need to know, including setting the thermostats to your comfort level. We have a primary gas heat stove in the basement that heats the whole house. We also installed a gas stove in the living room so folks can run that as they wish for some additional heat/ambiance as desired.

We offer our whole house for the rental but the "living area" is clearly the upstairs with the kitchen, bedroom, living room and bathroom. All fully equipped and very comfortable. The basement is not a space that we offer as part of the rental, however the laundry room is in the basement which we are in the process of completing so that there can be additional bunk space. We often get requests to have more than two guests stay at the cabin so we do let people know that they can have "extras" "crash" in the basement on the futon if that helps them out. The cabin is best for a couple or a small family. However, plenty of families enjoy the waterfront experience and grilling out together and just relaxing so we accept more than two guests and if the guests let us know that they are in fact bringing more than two people we fully explain the set up so that when they opt for using the basement they know what they are signing up for.

We have never had a question on the washer and we give all guests several phone numbers to reach us as needed if they have any questions during their stay.

We want all guests to enjoy their stay and we do as much as possible to ensure they have a good experience. If you want to be on the water enjoying fantastic views and relaxing this is a great spot to do it.

Best mini-vacation close to home!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best relaxation that close to home. All the other reviews talk about the wonderful views, accommodations and amenities.... The owners of this rental are gems! Caring and conscientious owners that want their renters to enjoy their stay, not just collect the income! They took great care of us and went BEYOND the call of responsibility and took care of us like we were family! I highly recommend their "home" and will to all my friends!

We he had a fantastic stay on Vashon Island for my son's wedding. The house was just as advertised, maybe better than we expected. We never saw the owner, we paid on Paypal and the key was left on the table when we arrived. The house was clean, there was plenty of towels. There is an awesome double decker deck for awesome viewing of Quartermaster harbor. There was plenty of parking, which was good for us(we had plenty of company). It is about 4 or 5 miles into the town of Vashon. It was very quiet,(we were probably the noisiest). I would recommend this house in a minute. There is a futon in the basement that we used, but no bathroom down there. I would go back.
