Located on Vashon Island situated directly on the water - overlooking the calm waters of Inner Quartermaster Harbor on Maury Island - not far from Portage area. Picture wonderful beach walks, sand dollar collecting, or kayaking. Whether you're coming from near or far - this is a GREAT getaway and convenient to the city of Seattle and for day excursions around the sound.
You can enjoy the local public swim pool, tennis courts, and use the bikes & kayaks that are provided at the cabin.
Enjoy the outdoors and the direct access to the beach.
1 bedroom(Queen bed, plus lots of sleeping space and stocked with sleeping bags and inflatable beds(2 twin). Fully equipped kitchen and pantry with most essentials. Gas grill on porch (fully plumbed in - no need for propane tank). Fabulous outdoor spaces to enjoy as well. Sunrise reflections shimmer across the water and the sunsets are amazing!
Equipped with 3 kayaks, 2 beach cruiser bikes. It is possible to anchor in the harbor.
The cabin was my home for years and continues to be a family treasure. We hope to live there again some day (soon - so don't delay your stay).

Family, water, views, simplicity, and relaxation.
Direct access waterfront with incredible west facing views.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
