Overview

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms / 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to our magical home on Vashon Island, the Nantucket of the west coast. A 15 minute ferry ride from either Seattle or Tacoma makes Vashon Island one of the most accessible yet rural spots located in the heart of Puget Sound. Quietly nestled on the Burton Peninsula, this luxury waterfront Panabode log home, with dock and buoy, is just a 20 minute drive from either ferry dock. Located adjacent to Burton Acres & Jensen Point Park, with 68 acres of walking trails in serene beauty. Beach combing, picnicking, biking, swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing & public boat launch are right at your fingertips.

On nearly an acre of land, enjoy our serene setting, luxury home, private dock and mooring buoy. Inside every room is tastefully decorated and comfortable. Sleeps 8-10. Updated kitchen with a Viking Dual fuel range, warming oven, Bosch dishwasher, microwave, granite counters, washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals or use gas grill for outdoor entertaining. If you don't want to cook, you can enjoy the many fine restaurants nearby. Relax on the lower level with the big screen cable TV. Cozy up with a good book next to one of the two gas fireplaces. Lounge on the comfy chairs and be mesmerized by the tide working it's way in or out. Enjoy roasting yummy S'mores at waters edge in the large fire pit. Set up an easel and paint your inspiration!

About George Spano

Welcome to our home. We hope you enjoy your stay.

What makes this house unique

We are never bored when we are here. There is always some fun activity depending upon the time of year, the weather, and your mood. For those of you that don't like to sit still, there is walking, biking, kayaking, or exploring the Island car. Or for those of you that would would rather relax, it is great just sitting on the patio or in the house and watching the everchanging activity on the harbor and at the park next door that we look down to. This is a place where doing nothing is enjoyable.

What an incredible time we had!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't express enough how amazing our time at this property was. Long story short, we had originally booked another rental down the way from this one. However, due to plumbing issues, our reservation there was cancelled 2 weeks before 13 of us were arriving from all over the country. I panicked. But within 24 hours, George contacted me to say that his property was available for our dates. All I can say is I think the stars were aligned, as we think we hit the jackpot with this property. It truly could not have been more perfect for our family reunion....from the youngest 2 year old to the oldest Grandpa at 78! Fun was had by all. We took full advantage of the water crafts, went crabbing just off the property, roasted s'mores every night in the fire pit and spent almost every moment of our time on Vashon at the property...it was too good to leave. The house is beautiful and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need! The beds were extremely comfortable. The location is magnificent. It truly was a magical time and we cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you, thank you, George and family!! The Hughes/Keegan/Deison Family

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend with a large crew in this comfortable, clean, well supplied, well positioned house. Everyone had great fun lounging on the back patio, on the back lawn, and playing in kayaks and boats off the dock. Superb location, quiet but close to amenities. Owners were wonderful to work with. Everyone in our group agreed we would happily rent again.

Only one problem.....

  • 5 of 5

we couldn't stay longer! The house and all amenities were beyond our expectations. The kids (13-7) were in heaven with all the water toys and a fantastic game room. All three boys (grandsons) want to live there! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need from flipping pancakes to BBQs on the patio. Comfortable beds and the bathrooms served 7 adults and three kids just fine. We will definitely go back. Best house we have rented on Vashon.

The perfect setting for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend a vacation with our kids and grandkids. The property was beautiful and the house well supplied with everything we needed for cooking, sleeping and playing! Thanks for sharing your home with us! We will be back next summer!

Wonderful Home - Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was for business, and we needed a place to stay the same night we arrived. George and his wife were MORE than accommodating to our need for a place on such short notice, and their home was truly fantastic! Beautifully decorated, with high end appointments throughout the house, a game room for playing pool, and the perfect view truly helped our team relax while on Vashon for business. I highly recommend booking this property if it's available. You won't be disappointed! Our only complaint was that we didn't have enough time to fully enjoy everything this property offers - water sports (kayaking, boating), nature trails, and just enjoying all of the amenities the owners have provided for their visitors. Would stay here every time I come to Vashon!

Family Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Three generations met to celebrate Great Grandmother's 90th birthday. Everything was as expected, with the added bonus of paddleboards, kayaks, and a rowboat. The home is very comfortable yet informal. The 11- and 9- year old grandsons slept in the lower level suite, which contains a bathroom, bunk beds, huge sofa, chairs, flat screen TV, pool table, foosball and hockey game table. They were in heaven!

Probably the single comment we will most remember is the 11 year old telling his parents that he wants a Vashon house for his birthday! Dream on...
