About Allyson Ericksen

I am a long time islander and my family and I have been enjoying the beach house for over 65 years! My Partner and I truly enjoy sharing our happy place as a vacation rental with our quests. We love hearing the stories of the memories families make on the beach and adventures they have had while exploring Vashon.

Allyson Ericksen purchased this house in 1952

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.

Fantastic Beach Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Once again, our family enjoyed every minute at Allyson's Burton Beach House. Staying here has become an annual tradition that our kids count down the days to. They love collecting sand dollars and paddling around on the "tippy, but very fun" little kayak. We enjoy grilling and sharing meals together at the picnic table, and then gathering around the fire pit for evening s'mores. The countdown until next summer has already begun!

Wonderful getaway. Beautiful location and immaculately maintained.

  • 4 of 5

My only minor critique is the mattress for the pullout is past its time. Other than that, this place was perfect and exactly what we needed.

Thanksgiving on Vashon

  • 5 of 5

Darling and comfortable. We didn’t cook because we were hanging out with family but we could have done any cooking we wanted because the kitchen had everything. So fun being right on top of the water. Lovely to hear and amazing sunrises to wake us up.

Cottage with a view!

  • 3 of 5

Vashon Island is a great place to visit. Hiking, biking, boating and good local restaurants are all available. The view from the Burton Waterfront was amazing! If all you were going to do was stay on the deck, this is the perfect place to be. The house, while spacious for a couple (and maybe one small child), is not a place we would want to bring a larger number of people to stay. It is obviously a place that the owners come to stay and, while it might be ideal for an owner, it leaves something to be desired for someone paying $200.00 per night. Our first impression was that the cottage was eclectic. The one room is large with an older dining room table to the left as you come in; a rattan chair and a poppasan chair (remember those from the 70's) in the far left corner; and a queen size bed in the right corner along with two metal fold out beds attached to the wall. The bathroom is to the right of the foot of the bed and the kitchen is in the right hand corner. A sleep sofa sits in the middle of the room facing a 32" smart tv which is on a table against the wall between the two chairs and the bed.

The kitchen is the most modern part of the unit and is very well stocked. Based on all the condiments in the kitchen, it appears that the owners leave their leftovers at the house between visits or don't remove condiments left by other guests. The main problem (besides sanitation) is that some of these things are very old (like ketchup with a year old use by date and Twinkies with a July 2017 expiration). Everything else in the kitchen was fine.

The bathroom was clean and modern but very small. Two people cannot fit at the same time unless one is in the shower. There are all kinds of old shampoos and conditioners and body washes, I assume these are from past guests or the owners. They are not new. There is no place to hang towels.

While the bed was comfortable, the sofa is not. It is in serious need of replacement. There is not a comfortable chair inside the house.

The view outside is the highpoint of the property. DO NOT lean on the rail over the water as it needs to be repaired! The furniture on the deck is okay but could also use updating. The grill is very small and is in need of cleaning. You do hear the road noise starting at 6:30 in the morning.

This is a very nice unit for the family who owns it. We would love to return if it were updated. It is not the standard we expect from this type and priced unit.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you did not feel the house was up to your standards. I do try my best to keep the house updated and fully stocked for guests. The shampoo and other shower supplies are not always brand new, but I do have a full box of hotel sized products in the bathroom if the large ones provided are not desired. I actually live a mile away and don't get to spend much time at the house other than to clean it and turn it over for our renters, and I do leave condiments and basic kitchen staples to be used during the stay, however, I will be more diligent on checking dates and making sure the products are sanitary. Our large BBQ recently broke and I did my best to supply a BBQ quickly, so I have since replaced it and I again am sorry it was not up to parr. I will take your input on my furniture and will work on finding more comfortable and modern pieces to meet a level of excellence that I would like to provide for our guests. I was trying to keep the authentic "beachy eclectic vibe" that suits the house and its island location but I will update the items and try to modernize the house. My aim is always to make our renters feel comfortable and like they are in a home away from home!

Right on the water with the tides coming up to the house was very cool! A cute, quaint cottage with everything we needed.

The Beach House is located on the south end of Vashon Island, in the town of Burton. Our cozy little town has a small grocery store that can meet your basic needs and a great coffee shop and restaurant within walking distance of the house. Eclectic shops and a post office are just down the road, as well as a place to rent kayaks and enjoy being out on the gentle waters of Quartermaster Harbor.
