Vashon Island was a great place to stay when we wanted to visit Seattle. Sleeping on the Bluebird made the whole experience even more beautiful! It might be smaller than a house/appartment, but the fresh air, sunsets, stars and beach make up for it. Mary was supersweet and explained everything there is to know. Definitely a recommendation!

The host was really nice and welcoming. She made sure we were comfortable in the space we were staying. She made up an extra bed just so I would be comfortable. It was a beautiful place to stay and a good experience.

Mary did a great job making my dad feel at home. The dockton park area was a lovely setting for a week long visit to Vashon, very scenic and filled with wildlife. Mary made a fresh breakfast each morning with hot coffee and brought it out to the boat. Great service. Very comfortable fit for one person. Thanks!

Mary and Don were very helpful and accommodating! They were careful to explain the intricacies of their boat and how things work. Her breakfast and drinks left for us were very much appreciated as well! People who need lots of space might be a bit claustrophobic but it IS a boat which made for unique, fun lodging on a quiet dock with beautiful sunrises and sunsets!

This was the best! Mary was a fantastic host and her boat was perfect. The breakfast and coffee every morning just added to an already great experience. Falling asleep under the stars every night and waking up to seals splashing around made me seriously consider moving to a boat. The surrounding area is beautiful with hiking, kayaking and plenty of exploring to do. I would highly recommend this boat to anyone looking for a unique getaway.

Mary made us feel very welcome. She brought us breakfasts and was rxtremely helpful. The location of the boat was wonderful--mother seal and her pup included. My husband felt a little claustrophobic the first night but Mary helped by suggesting a different location in the boat. Even though it is an island we tooh ferries off and on with no difficulty.
