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.

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!

This is our third year here and it's the most relaxing and fun place to stay. It's perfect for a small family or just two people. Great beach access. Perfect for swimming too.

Extreme relaxation and amazing beauty!

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the openness of the inside of the cottage. Very clean, and a view of the water was amazing! The bed was very comfortable. The reason for one less star is due to the main road right behind the cottage, but traffic was fairly minimal. Truly a couple retreat worth booking! Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven!

Very relaxing

  • 4 of 5

What a view! We had a few sunny days and took full use of the deck. The water really is at your feet at high tide. I can only imagine how fun it would be in the summertime. Almost everything you need in a rental was provided. Cutlery, cozy robes, coffee, back up lanterns, etc.The bed was very comfortable as well. A great overall use of space. Really only wished for a soaking tub, but understand space restrictions. There are so many little parks right on the water that were fun to "discover". The Burton forest lands were a great walk from the cabin. Vashon also has a pretty decent amount of dining options , we loved Mays. Great cider and spirits made on the island too. Everything is within a pretty short driving distance. We would definitely recommend the Burton beach house.

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 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.
