Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

39 easy steps from the large parking area brings you right to breathtaking views of the water and private beach. French doors open out to the deck from the living room giving you further access to the beach.

Enjoy dining, fishing, swimming or boating right from the deck. Low tide gives you many enjoyable hours exploring the beach.

Easy to bring your boat. There is a boat launch on the peninsula and we have a buoy for you to hook up to.

Our home is located on the well-known Burton Peninsula. Burton offers a easy hike in the interior or just a nice walk around the loop. We have included many details in the rooms and kitchen for everyone to be comfortable and to feel at home.

About Erin Lemons

My family and I have be been vacationing to this beautiful area since 1964. I've had the great opportunity to share the experience with my children and now my grandchildren. All are addicted to the beach life as I am. I hope everyone who visits walks away with their own wonderful memories and experiences.

Erin Lemons purchased this house in 2005

Why Erin Lemons chose Puget Sound

My aunt and uncle bought the cabin as a summer get away where I spent many wonderful summers and with the beach as my playground. Later it was sold to my parents then my husband and I had the opportunity to purchase it. It has been wonderful for me to share the unique experiences with my guests that the beach house has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Hop in the kayak or row boat and site-see from the water. In the evening dine on the deck and enjoy the water all around you. You might even enjoy fishing from the deck. In the day the tide is out so you can go out to the waters edge and find all kinds of beach life. It is a always changing landscape with plenty to enjoy.

Magical Beach House with All the Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

Wish we could have stayed longer!

This beach cabin had everything we hoped for when visiting Vashon. The location is convenient while also being private and peaceful. The interior is fully equipped and furnishing are both comfortable and beautiful. The expansive exterior deck has a view of the harbor activity and there is easy access to the water for those who want to join in (kayaks and paddle board included in the rental).

Erin communicated with us every step of the way and had the beach cabin clean and ready for our arrival...including fresh flowers and treats in the kitchen.

This is truly a perfect beach get-away; we would change nothing!

Hope to return!

Spectactular Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special little cottage. We have stayed here the last two summers and just love the place. Being right on the water is amazing. Kayaking, paddle boarding, hunting for sea shells, dinner on the deck, late night drinks watching the moon rise over the bay. Very special. We had six adults stay this last week and were able to make it work just fine (four is better as every couple gets their own bedroom). Erin is a great landlord and everything you need is accessible. Book your time a year in advance as next summer is already close to booked (very popular).

Amazing propert, inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin with unbelievable views. Almost like a house boat when the tide is all the way in. Full use of kayaks, life jackets, small dingy. Comfy beds, plush towels, well stocked kitchen basics. Walk a few hundred yards up the driveway and across the road and there's trail head access to multiple hikes (kids loved the fairy trail that had glitter and little treasure boxes along the way!). I've stayed at dozens of VRBO rentals and this is my first review. We will definitely be coming back!

wonderful spring break stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our stay immensely. Great fishing straight from the deck, great beach exploring right outside the house. One of my pet peeves is uncomfortable beds in vacation homes, not the case here, rivaled my bed at home!

Kitchen was very well appointed, I couldn't think of a thing we were missing. We'll be back!

This place has everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautifully appointed, and in a great location. The kitchen was well stocked, everything was thoughtfully located and easy to find. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with throughout the entire process. Our family was very comfortable, it rained most of the time and we didn't spend much time outside, no one cared. Thank you for everything, staying in your home made it very special.

Best place on Vashon!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 years (Feb 2014) ago on Valentine's Day weekend. It was absolutely amazing! The cottage is so cozy and despite the bad weather (which was to be expected that time of year) we had a great weekend away. We had 2 couples plus our dogs stay and the cottage had more than enough room. Being from Seattle, it's nice to know that a waterfront cottage is so close to home but feels like you're in a different world all together.
