Enjoy a relaxing waterfront experience at beautiful Dilworth Point (only a 15 min. ferry ride from Seattle) in a quiet, cozy home nestled only 20' from the beach.This home was updated in 2001.

Entertain yourself, family and friends on the spacious decks with unobstructed 180 degree views of Puget Sound all the way to Seattle. Watch the eagles and blue herons swoop and fish around the boat ramp or say hello to the deer who occasionally wander through the nearly 2.5 acre property.

Entertain in style: Choose to have a casual BBQ on the deck at waters edge while eating outside or cook a full meal in the sunny, spacious kitchen (two tables seating 10 & 5 respectfully) - you'll have great views and a great time.

About J. Nark

We are two families who have enjoyed many weekends and summers water skiing, bonfires, clamming and just relaxing on Vashon.

J. Nark purchased this house in 1984

Why J. Nark chose Puget Sound

Being only 15 min. via ferry to Seattle the commute from our homes to the island is under a 1/2 hr.

What makes this house unique

Our greatest joys have been listening to the Puget Sound lull you to sleep. Waking up to beautiful sunrises on the stillest of mornings. Beach combing. Watching the kids play in the water from morning to dusk.

A wonderful place for a wonderful occasion!!

  • 5 of 5

My brother was getting married on Vashon Island and our family wanted a place to stay all together to enjoy each other's company. This house fit the bill perfectly! The setting could not have been more lovely and we had unusually hot weather during the day, making the evenings absolutely perfect for sitting outside enjoying the waves and the gorgeous full moon. My daughters and my sister-in-law loved "The Nest" - the boat house that literally could have slept 4 or 5 more people! The kitchen was stocked with cooking items, the washer/dryer was fantastic, we had a ton of towels, sheets, pillows, etc. We played the available board games, used the kayaks and the inner tubes and my daughter and husband found a tiny baby octopus in the tide pool during low tide - it was amazing!

The drive down the steep, winding driveway (would have liked to have known about that before getting there in the dark) was so worth the location and the serenity of feeling away from it all. It was just a short ride into town, which is lovely, and the ferry was easy to catch.

Thank you for the use of your wonderful house!!

Beautiful home and bunkhouse

  • 5 of 5

This is the ultimate place right next to the water. The Kayaks gave us plenty of fun to explore the whole area. They were so fun we never had time to explore the trails and town hot spots. The homes were clean and neat, with plenty of labels and instructions on using everything. The owner provided everything we needed to find it and feel at home. He even called while we were there to see how things were going!

Best weekend getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again soooo much for our annual trip to your Vashon home, for our ladies 30/50 weekend!!!! We had an amazing weekend getaway as usual! The weather on Saturday was absolutely breath taking! We love how big the table is, we did crafts all weekend, we made dream catchers, leather braclets and so much more. We even got to comb the beach and make sand candles. We were either at the beach or all together in the kitchen, making food, playing board games or crafts. It is the perfect place to rejuvenate and make amazing memories. Can't wait for next year.Such an amazing experience. None of us wanted to leave as always. This is by far our favorite getaway every year.

Great for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house, and the attached bunkhouse, were perfect for our long weekend getaway with friends! Our kids spent hours playing in or on the water (the included kayaks were part of why we chose this property, and it was a good choice for us) and they really enjoyed having the bunkhouse area as their own space to hang out in when they weren't outdoors. We adults enjoyed a lot of peace, quiet and a fabulous water view, both from the deck and from inside the comfortable house (and we also enjoyed some time in the kayaks, lots of life vests provided) . The two dining tables were great to have and the furnishings overall were comfortable and pleasant. The kitchen was well-stocked (lots of dishes and silverware) and easy to cook in. It seemed clear that the owners treasure this property and the times they've enjoyed there, and we could certainly understand that as we felt kinda attached after just a few days! We hope to return for another visit in the future.

Terrific Family Vacation Spot for People Who Appreciate the Outdoors

  • 5 of 5

We can't really add to the positive comments of previous reviewers, except to say that our extended family of 8 was extremely comfortable, that we deeply enjoyed all the amenities, and in particular the privacy and fantastically expansive view with every changing sky. We plan to return.

Wonderful waterfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for extended family gathering and reconnection, from the spacious main house to the bunkhouse to the availability of multiple kayaks for all of us to use, great grill and fire pit, terrific board game selection, and many more amenities. We particularly appreciated the well-stocked beer fridge and its gentle admonition to replace what we drank with "quality products". Would definitely recommend this to anyone wishing to have a quiet place to connect with family and friends.

Owner's Response: I am glad you took it as a "gentle admonition".......That was actually put up about 15yrs ago when my partner's kids were in their early 20's. I was not about to supply them with craft brews and have them leave "Mickey Big Mouth Malt Liquor". The honor system has worked very well over the years!
