Overview

About the property

Waterfront House, 3 Bedrooms + Bedroom/Living Room, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

It's beautiful here!

Our three story, fully updated 3BR, 1.5 BA beach home was built in 1904, and is located right on the waterfront at the very end of Hake Road. The house is built into a hillside and there are about 30 stairs from the parking area to the house.

Incredible views from anywhere you sit and beautiful sunsets. You can anchor your boat at our buoy.

TOP FLOOR:

Master Bedroom queen bed, full closet, widow's walk.

MAIN FLOOR:

Small bedroom with a twin bunk bed, Half-Bath, Full Kitchen, and Living Room/Dining Room with double sleeper sofa. French Doors open out onto covered porch with a hammock and a porch swing.

GROUND FLOOR:

Queen Bedroom with flat screen TV. Full bathroom, mini bar with refrigerator/microwave. French doors open onto deck with hot tub.

YARD:

Off the ground floor deck there is a small lawn which leads to a dock over the water. There are also stairs from the lawn to the beach. At some higher tides, the water comes right up to the seawall so there is limited beach access.

Due to the size of the house, and septic system, we have limited our home to 6 people max. If your party contains more than 6 people, you may want to look for a larger property.

About Eric Rucker

We're a family of four from Seattle that loves spending time together and enjoying nature.

Eric Rucker purchased this house in 2012

Why Eric Rucker chose Puget Sound

We've been looking for the perfect Vashon beachfront home for years. Vashon is a special place with a vibrant arts community and extensive natural beauty. We wanted a place that was as sunny as possible - it had to be west facing. Our home has direct sun exposure from about 10:30 in the morning until sunset. We also wanted a place that had a very natural view with exposure to lots of wildlife. We regularly enjoy seeing eagles, deer, fish, seals, otters, various waterfowl and lots of sea creatures along the beach.

What makes this house unique

A fully updated 1904 Beach House. Three decks to hang out on! A full size hot tub! Beautiful views of Quartermaster harbor from every deck. And about an hour drive/ferry to downtown Seattle. Did we mention that it's really beautiful here?

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely family weekend here! Our toddler LOVED all the new toys and books to discover and they kept her busy a whole rainy day. The hot tub is great, the kitchen compact but fully stocked including tons of herbs and spices. Hope to book again.

Great waterfront property on Vashon

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this waterfront cabin on Vashon. It's a charming cabin with great common space both on the main floor and in the basement. The covered porch and the lower deck with the hot tub look west over the water. Added bonus was the well-kept history and photos detailing the life of the cabin. Definitely recommended!

Great view and well kept

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this cabin for a relaxing New Year's Eve of cooking, playing games and relaxation. It's situated in a great location, right on the water with a beautiful view especially if you're in the hot tub. Kitchen had everything we needed and there's ample room for 6. Cabin is well kept and clean with enough towels and blankets for everyone.

Even in the winter

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely...the hot tub was amazing and so welcome when it was cold. There are expansive views of Puget Sound and we saw a bald eagle right outside the window. Everything was clean and well maintained. As awesome as it was, i would really like to stay there in the summer.

Great Stay on Vashon Island

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 nights over Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful time! The cottage was well equipped, clean and great for the three of us.

Nicely appointed house on a quite part of the island. I would recommend it to others in a heartbeat.
