The space

1917 bungalow right on the water-- at high tide, it feels a bit like a houseboat. Private setting on a lovely beach. The house looks east to sunrises, city lights, the shipping lanes (freighters come by regularly) and a spectacular view of Mt. Rainier.
Because the house is right on the water, and the car park area is above the house, there is a path from the parking down to the house. The path/ walk way has a few steps but is mostly sloping dirt and a board walk. Guests must be able to walk the path, down and up.

This place is amazing-- a huge huge view of sea and sky and Mt. Rainer!

Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully equipped, very comfortable, kayaks and canoe are available. Vashon has lots to offer-- lots of beaches to explore, good hiking, a vibrant town core with nice shops and restaurants, and lots of art studios and events.

The setting is amazing. Views of Mount Rainier, daily sightings of sea lions and otters as well as fish jumping and clams spitting. There's a spectacular view from every room and a front porch to relax on. The private beach is awesome and kayaks, canoes are provided. The house could certainly use some updating. But sadly, Kitchen was really dirty, there was actual food smeared on dishes/pots/silverware etc. I suspect this is because the dishwasher doesn't work well. We had to scrub everything prior to use. The towels provided were old and smelled of mildew and stained (needed to wash prior to using). Linens just old and need to be replaced. Rings of dirt in toilet and a stained bathtub. Hand soap in bathrooms would've been nice. Lots of cobwebs. I understand bugs will be in a home so open and on the water but this just seemed like it hadn't been cleaned. Lots of dust and furniture has clearly been well loved. This house has so much potential and Vashon is an incredible place but if you're at all squeamish in not so clean places this home is not for you. I couldn't wait to get home shower and wash everything I brought with me. My kids had a blast and we still had fun, just wish house was clean.

A delightful and surprisingly roomy beach house with spectacular views. The access to boats was a particularly nice touch. Access to the house from the driveway involves a bit of a walk down a short path. We stayed only briefly but enjoyed the place immensely.

Excellent beach front property. We were able to row the boat in the relaxing afternoon. Our family had a great time here. Thank you!

We had a great stay over two nights in August. The house is in a great location right on the water. As others have said, the path down to the house is a bit tricky, but is manageable.

Great spot, quiet on the water. Classic cottage with a wonderful family feel and a deck on the sound with sweeping views second to none. Kayaking in the morning was so refreshing. Lynn was very easy to communicate with and helpful during our stay. While a little off the beaten path, it's well worth the drive and walk down to the waterfront...after all, you are on Vashon and everything feels secluded as it should.

This is a truly special place - quiet and peaceful. We had a beautiful, restorative visit with friends. It's more private and secluded than we expected and that worked great for us.

Beautiful view. The walk down to the home is tricky but manageable and scenic. The island is quiet, quaint, and perfect for relaxing. Overall the home is worth the price. The location is great and the home met our needs. Owner was responsive and provided clear directions to the location. Clean up was straight forward and easy to comply with. We did find dust, cob webs, and a number of spiders although this is somewhat expected given the location. The furnishings are old and dingy and the pillows were flat and smelled. However, we traveled the island and stayed outside most days. Pictures and description are accurate.

Response from Lynn:
Hmmm about furniture. It's only 3 years old, from Crate & Barrel. Not "old and dingy." Maybe not his style? Glad he enjoyed his stay-

We live on Vashon Island and work in Seattle. We rent out a family beach house-- it's not where we live. We can give suggestions on things to do during your island visit. Vashon is terrific; it's rural and quiet but so close to Seattle and Tacoma.
