About Bonnie McCallister

My husband and I have been here since 1986. We began by creating our Asian inspired garden and eventually remodeling of the 1910 Craftsman cabin.

We love sharing our home and gardens with friends, family and visitors to Vashon.

Bonnie McCallister purchased this studio in 1986

Why Bonnie McCallister chose Puget Sound

You can’t beat Villa Vashon Suite’s location. It is on the bus line and very close to the northend Washington State Ferry dock. The ferry is a short 15 minutes ride from Seattle. During the weekdays you can also take the passenger water taxi directly to downtown Seattle. There are award-winning restaurants in downtown Vashon or if you don’t feel like going anywherere there is a Mexican restaurant at the end of the ferry dock. Margaritas anyone?

What makes this studio unique

It's like being on a boat. It's close to the water and the sound of the waves ,whales, otters seals, sea lions, eagles and seabirds make for a serene sountrack for a relaxing stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed ourselves immensely during our brief stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Many rentals, and believe me we’ve seen many, are not at all as advertised. Not so with Villa Vashon. I would say Villa Vashon exceeded our expectations, and our expectations are quite high. We look forward to returning for a much longer stay.

Exactly as described. Very clean, quiet and the view is awesome! Would definitely come back again. Only suggestion would be to advise of the parking requirement.

Lush heavenly garden with pooling waterfalls. Plenty of private places to relax and meditate. And most important is the friendly nature of the property owners and people of Vashon only a few minutes away by bus. Seattle is about twenty minutes away by ferry with awesome views of water, forests, mountains, and volcanoes--including Mount Rainier.

A peaceful, romantic getaway away from the world

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Vashon for a few days last week, some much needed romantic getaway time tacked onto the end of a business trip. From the very beginning, Bonnie's emails were informative and friendly, full of great tips for things to do and see. She provided very clear and easy to follow instructions to get to the property. As soon as we walked in I could see the pictures, amazing though they are, didn't do the place justice. I felt grounded and calm as soon as I walked in. Everything was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and had all the amenities you could want are right there. They are very thoughtful hosts and decorators, and each time we came back from exploring, we felt like we were coming home.

Let's start with the view...oh my, the view of the water is delightful, and though I had my doubts, what others had reviewed previously is true. You don't notice the sound of the ferries *at all*. There is something special about being right on the water that just makes stress melt away from you, and the little table for two on the terrace overlooking the water is a great place to drink morning coffee and plan your day's exploration...

On Vashon Island itself, we took Bonnie's recommendation and had reservations at May's, which is a delightful Thai restaurant that had the friendliest waitstaff you can imagine. We also drove all over the island exploring, and found the old lighthouse that is definitely worth going to see towards the south end. But, the treasure, the place we went to *four times in 36 hours* was the Vashon Island Baking Co. Their maple bacon croissants are heaven...heaven! as are the ham and cheese croissants. The people are unbelievably nice...go visit this bakery, they open at 7a daily. And, they make their own syrups for espresso drinks.

We also made a day trip up to Port Angeles, exploring Hurricane Ridge before coming back in the evening. There is no shortage of beautiful scenery in the area. We will definitely be back for a longer stay, and can't recommend this place highly enough!

Wonderful Stay at Villa Vashon

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Villa Vashon. It was wonderful being right on the water. Even though we were just a few feet from the ferry dock, we couldn't hear a thing. The apartment is beautifully appointed with Asian furnishings. Everything is clean and efficiently arranged. The apartment is also just 4 miles from downtown and close to wineries and hiking trails. The owners, Bonnie and Dean, are gracious and helpful. They provided wonderful suggestions for places to go and things to do. Highly recommend!
