About Allyson Ericksen

I am a long time islander and my family and I have been enjoying the beach house for over 60 years!

Allyson Ericksen purchased this house in 1957

What makes this house unique

You can get out and enjoy all that Vashon has to offer or you can sit on the porch and watch the water gently roll by. I can get lost in the beauty that surrounds us here in this tiny paradise.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed two nights and absolutely loved it. Instead of going out to eat, we made full use of the kitchen and ate outside on the deck as much as we could. We even made use of the fire pit a couple times and looked at the stars. The house has everything you could possibly need.. and you can't beat the view! It's such a quiet and peaceful spot. We would love to visit again.

Relaxing and Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend on Vashon. The house's proximity to the water was a great excuse to lounge and do nothing! It was great for the two of us, and would probably be good if you had 1-2 kids as well. The house is close to a somewhat busy road, but that didn't bother us. The sound of the water was louder than the road. Waking up to sunrise streaming through a wall of windows overlooking the water -- you just can't put a price on that. Tip: Explore the trials through the woods on the Burton peninsula nearby.

Lovely cottage on the water

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the cottage on Vashon; we had great weather, rented a kayak, and found the cottage clean and comfortable. Well-stocked kitchen. We'd rent it again!

The Perfect Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Burton Waterfront Beach House. We are West Seattleites who pop over to spend 2-3 days of quality family time on Vashon each summer. It is the perfect place to relax, unwind, play, and just breathe the gorgeous beach air before returning to our busy lives. Our children love staying right on the water, watching the tide change, swimming, and collecting shells. The house is perfect for grilling and eating outside. The kitchen is spacious and airy and there is a gas grill and large patio table. We enjoyed the most incredible sunsets while eating! We hope to return for many more annual visits!

A family weekend on the island filled with sunshine and blackberry pie

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful location and a well organized home! We were on the island for a big wedding and it was the perfect place for the kiddos to meet up and play in the water, search for shells and even pick wild blackberries for a few pies! The new washer and dryer were perfect for coming home without dirty laundry. We slept 4 people in the house one night and 5 people the next, it was very easy and comfortable for all! I'll never forget sitting in the Adirondack chairs snuggled up in a blanket from the house sipping morning coffee with my dad. Thanks for the beautiful memories!

Nice and Relaxed at the Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was my wife and I's first experience in Washington, and I have to say the bar has been set pretty high! Vashon was a fun and relaxing place, something we very much needed! We loved getting to take the ferry ride back and forth, and experiencing a lot of things we don't get to do back in the mid-west. The home was a very cozy and quaint little place. Home was clean, and well taken care of. We had everything we needed, and enjoyed the view every morning. Allyson did a wonderful job, going above and beyond with advice about the island, transportation, etc. The island has a few pretty tasty restaurants (we really liked May Kitchen!), and a handful of shops and sights worth stopping to see as well. If you're looking for a simple, no nonsense, relaxing place to stay, this is your spot!
