About Lance Gildea

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.

Lance Gildea purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Lance Gildea chose Vashon Island

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 space

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister and I came here for a little overnight getaway, and we had a wonderful time. The cottage is the perfect size for 3-4 people, and it had everything we needed. The views of the water, Mt. Rainier and the ferry path were wonderful. No whale sightings this time, but we saw eagles, seals, and sea otters. I slept on the pullout couch, and it was very comfortable. I recommend getting a fire going in the wood fire stove for extra coziness. I would definitely stay here again or recommend for out of town visitors.

loved the location.

  • 4 of 5

It took me a bit to get past the rustic exterior, rickety deck, and wobbly stairs. But once I did, I fell in love with the place. The inside has been updated. It's small, but was perfect for the two of us. Plenty of windows to enjoy the water and wildlife. I would recommend this house. I am hoping to come back for a winter getaway.

Nice place with a great view

  • 4 of 5

Over all a very nice place to get away for a night. It seems a little rundown - the couch needs to be replaced, the sheets were frayed, leaky faucets, etc. Nothing too bad though, and we would stay again.

Perfect summer memory!

  • 5 of 5

On the water, private, with total view of Mt. Rainier and Tacoma lights at night. Everything inside that you would need. Attention to detail. Deck with seating and bar-b-q., fire pit too. Only con for us is that it had just one Kayak and we had 2 teenage boys. Thanks so much. Loved our stay! Janice
