Vashon Island cottage description

Vashon Cottage Rental!

Enjoy beautiful sunsets, watch a bald eagle fly by or the otters playing in the water from this peaceful 2 story 1+ Bedroom Cottage, plus 1 bedroom 1bath guest house on the Sandy Beach of Paradise Cove.

Just a ferry boat ride from Seattle or Tacoma Washington to Vashon Island. A 10 minute drive from the Tacoma Ferry and 20 minute drive from West Seattle Ferry to our home. House is less than a 5 minute walk from the parking lot. A very easy and scenic walk that is along a wide and level on a path behind the bulkheads of the homes on the beach.

Great place to visit all year long!

Great recently remodeled open kitchen, dining area, living room, and full bath located on the main floor with incredible scenes from everywhere you sit.

Relax (or sleep) in one of the 2 fabulous twin size window seats. Not only are they great for looking out at the sound, reading a good book, but make great single beds for kids at night (great for watching winter storms and summer sunsets).

Bottom floor includes a Queen size bed and two double loft bed, look out every window to see the sound in front of you and a doorway out onto the lower deck.

Guest romantic cottage is our latest addition with a King size bed and it's own bath, nestled up on the hillside with the scenic sound all around you.

Due to the size of the house, septic and hot water tank we have limited our home to 4 adults max with 2 children. If your party contains more than 4 adults you may want to look for a bigger home.

Look for Cottage Paradise on Facebook for more photo's.

A very romantic get-away!

Car: Necessary

Walk the miles of sandy beaches on Paradise Cove, or kayak, hike, read, watch boat traffic, relax,...

It's patchwork of pastoral and natural settings make it a refreshing Northwest getaway. Miles of lightly traveled, pine edged country roads make bicycling and walking popular activities. There is something special and magical about being on an island, the pace is slower, the people friendly, the attitudes relaxed. Whether you are petting a Llama, slowing for deer crossing the road or watching eagles soar, you're sure to love Vashon.

The island is approximately 12 miles long by 8 miles at the widest point. The only way on and off the island is a breathtakingly beautiful ferry boat ride, with views of other islands as well as the Cascade and Olympic Mountains. The auto/passenger ferry boat (bicycles to 18 wheelers) loads from Fauntleroy Ferry dock in West Seattle and takes 15 minutes, it's a 10 minute ferry ride from the Point Defiance Ferry dock in Tacoma, and 10 minutes from the Southworth dock (if you are coming from the Olympic Peninsula) and, a 35 minute crossing by 'passenger only' ferry from downtown Seattle.

Our 'passenger only'' ferry takes you to the waterfront shops, and just a few blocks up the hill you will run into Seattle's famous Pioneer Square or you can walk or jump on one of our (free in the downtown area) buses to the equally famous Pike Place Farmer's Market where you can purchase everything from fish to fresh fruit and veggies to clothes and souvenirs. But don't forget we have our own mini-farmers market right here on Vashon on Saturdays during nice weather.

You can get to and around on the island by public transportation, it is however, preferable to have a car since the buses stop running at about 7pm each evening and do not run at all on Sundays. Also the passenger only ferry is in service Monday thru Saturday only.

Vashon-Maury Island is home to many painters, potters, jewelers, stained glass artists, musicians, writers and organic farmers.
