Our large, comfortable beach house on Seattle’s tranquil Vashon Island is just the place for a group or family to relax, unwind, and enjoy each others’ company. It sits on Quartermaster Harbor, on the quiet inside of the island, literally on the water at high tide and on the long sand and pebble beach at low tide. Enjoy the view, swim, or explore the harbor by kayak (two single and one double) or rowing/sailing dinghy. Alongside the house are two pleasant sleeping cabins, one with a queen bed, the other with a double bed, both with water views.
Outside stairs lead from the parking area to the garden and from the garden to the main house. The recently remodeled top floor is open with a modern, fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, roomy living area and dining table that seats up to 12. A smaller adjoining room has comfy couches and a large flat screen TV (cable). There is also a full bath. The bottom floor (outside stairs) has a spacious bedroom with a king size bed, a smaller bedroom with a double and two twin beds, a bath with shower and a washer and dryer.
Both floors have decks facing the water and sunsets. There is also a hot tub on the water. If you want to use one of the boats we have plenty of life jackets for children and adults.
If you enjoy our vacation home even half as much as we do you’ll have a wonderful time.

About the owner: I am a retired high school teacher and my husband is a retired physician. We are avid travelers and enjoy our children and grand children. I grew up in Washington and we have lived in Seattle for more than forty years.
Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island: We bought our beach house as a family retreat. The location is perfect for us because it is close to Seattle where we and our family live. The grand children especially love the beach and the water. On the Island we enjoy biking, hiking several trails, long walks on the beach at low tide and the friendly town of Vashon.
The Unique Benefits at this House: There is kayaking and beach combing, walking and biking. August is blackberry season with great picking all around. Then we make pies and ice cream and jam. In winter we light a fire in the stone fireplace, curl up with a book and watch the storms roll in over the water.
