                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I am Lance Gildea. My wife Deanna and I, so much enjoy sharing this piece of paradise with our guests. Everyone just wows at the view and just loves what we have done with this little water side cabin that we like to call a cottage. We are getting closer to having an empty nest. Our Daughter is in Denver studying to become a pastry chef and our Son is in the middle of his High School years.

                      Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island:
                      Just love the views and southern exposure to the sun. Mostly because this southern location had the most amount of sun that could be found on the island. We are always in the sun here on Vashon Island. You can only get here by boat. Just the first of so many special things about Vashon. Check it out for yourself. Do a search on Vashon Island.
