This contemporary three level home was designed by a Portland architect to capitalize on the spectacular view. The spacious open floor plan, outside decks and grounds can accommodate many people comfortably. This is a perfect house for a wedding party, family reunion or retreat. Choose to relax on the deck as you watch the birds, read a book, watch the sunset, or walk on the beach at low tide. The home is situated on the southeastern tip of Vashon Island with magnificent views of Mt Ranier and Puget Sound. The small country road deadends in a half mile at Manzanitta Beach making this location a very peaceful place. The beach is at your doorstep. The bulkhead has a seating area, firepit and ramp to the beach. If you have a kayak, it is a perfect place to launch. The beach seems endless allowing for long walks, beach combing or bird watching with bald eagles, herons, cormorants, ospreys and many species of ducks to name a few. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with all the things necessary to prepare your favorite meals. There are also a variety of restaurants in the town of Vashon a short 15-20 minute drive away. The master bedroom with a king bed and bathroom are on the main level as well as another full bathroom. The kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry and two car garage are also on this level. The upper level has a spacious bedroom with a queen bed and couch that could be used for a child to sleep. A loft is also on this level with a couch. In the daylight basement, there is a bedroom with a queen bed, a full bathroom and a spacious family room with a hide-a-bed. There is also two trifold pads to sleep on as well as a blow-up mattress. During the summer, Vashon holds several special events including the Strawberry Festival, the Lavender Festival, and weekly farmers markets to name a few. Shopping in some of Vashon's unique shops or wine tasting is also fun. Vashon Island is a short ferry ride from the Faultneroy dock ( southwest Seattle) or Pt Defiance in northwest Tacoma. Plan a short or long trip to Vashon Island and book our beautiful home on the beach. It is a very special place.

About: In 1964, my parents bought an old beach cabin and property. In 1977, my dad, a Portland architect, designed this house. It has been carefully maintained and upgraded through the years and enjoyed by our entire family. My family has enjoyed many vacations here through the years. My two sisters have enjoyed the new and old cabins for a life time as well as some of their kids and grandkids. After my father passed away last year, my mother and I decided that we wanted to do vacation rentals. This is our first summer at doing this. We have a local person on the island who will be available to take care of all the immediate needs since we live off the island. It is a wonderful place and I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy it.
Why Vashon Island: The location of this house was chosen because of the ideal location. It has gorgeous views, southern exposure, away from the traffic, and is located on the beach. It is the 'banana belt' of Vashon Island.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This unique location enables you to really experience the beauty and excitement of nature in Puget Sound. There is always some animal to observe, and the sparkling water is breathtaking.
