Great 180 degree Views of Southern Puget Sound from Southern Vashon Island. Tacoma city and Commencement Bay night light views and during the day includes views of Mount Rainer and Point Defiance.
I am Lance Gildea. My wife Deanna and I, so much enjoy sharing this piece of paradise with our guests. Everyone just wows at the view and just loves what we have done with this little water side cabin that we like to call a cottage. We are getting closer to having an empty nest. Our Daughter is in Denver studying to become a pastry chef and our Son is in the middle of his High School years.
Lance Gildea purchased this cottage in 2004
Just love the views and southern exposure to the sun. Mostly because this southern location had the most amount of sun that could be found on the island. We are always in the sun here on Vashon Island. You can only get here by boat. Just the first of so many special things about Vashon. Check it out for yourself. Do a search on Vashon Island.
Beautiful location-great views and a short walk to the ferry. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
This is a nice little cottage on the south shore of Vashon Island. It is close to the ferry and easy to get to. Owner provided very good information in advance of our arrival. We met several very friendly residents and found the island to be very enjoyable and easy to get around. The cottage has a nice deck on the side and we enjoyed sitting outside looking at the city lights of Tacoma across the sound. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and a full size sleeper sofa in the main room. The enjoyed the breezes in the evening. We were amazed that there were no bugs, even in the middle of the summer!
My kids and I had an amazing couple of days at this sweet cottage right on the water. The cottage is the perfect blend of nice enough to feel like a retreat but also very comfortable for kids (no fancy breakable decorations, for example!), so I really felt that my kids could just be themselves in the cottage, and we all loved the water being RIGHT there. I would love to go back.
This is the perfect rental if you're looking for a quiet escape with easy access to restaurants and stores. It is easily reached from the airport and we did not face traffic at any point in time. We had visitors the likes of otters and seals which was a welcome site. This was a wonderful trip. We will be back
Well equipped cabin, amazing views, abundant wildlife! We loved it.
The pictures posted online are gorgeous, but do not do this darling cottage justice. The views from every room in the house are amazing, even the shower! The cottage is equipped with everything you would ever need....just like home. The location is perfect as well. At first I was concerned that being a stones throw away from the ferry would be disruptive, but it was the opposite. Our 4 year old son loved watching the ferry, and all of the other sail boats, come and go. The beach was full of treasures! Cool rocks, & neat shells. We even had an otter come right up onto shore! It was a charming, relaxing, amazing weekend, and we cannot wait to go back!
