Vashon Island is a 30 minute ferry ride from the metropolitan area of Seattle and offers the breath of nature needed after sleepless nights in the city!
The home is nestled in a wild forested wetland preserve, and the community nestles against Camp Sealth, named for Chief Sealth (née Seattle),. Colvos passage offers breathtaking scenery, rolling sands that stretch out for miles, with occasional sightings of Eagles, Herons and other wildlife. The waters are gentle, a perfect setting for Kayaking, swimming, fishing, hiking or, simply loll about the beach... Your own perfect slice of Paradise!
Elsewhere on the island, Local roaster ides, breweries, cafés, restaurants, pubs, art and craft workshops, historic theater all vie for your time! There's lots to do here in this friendly, islander community!
The Island boasts incredible farming culture, with dozens of small farms speckled across the land. Visit all the farm stands to see what's fresh, then come home to your full kitchen to see what creative meals happens! There is also a dense population of artists so you don't have to go far for galleries and every first Friday of the month is an art-walk night.
Starving Artistis Workshop, Pure - an earth
Friendly cafe, Zombie Burgers and the Coffee roasterie are some of our favorite haunts!
If you're visiting Puget Sound, let alone Vashon, a car is a must! How else would you take in the breathtaking beauty the many islands have to offer!
Vashon is unique in that it boasts two ferries, to three destinations! Fauntleroy (W. Seattle), Southworth, and Tahlequah are all a mere ferry ride away with lots of places to simply, go off the grid and hike, climb, swim. Or, take in the art scene, museums, and cultural monuments of an ancient frontier! Other attractions in the region include Gig Harbor, Bainbridge, Kingston, Anacortes, Tacoma, and of course, Seattle!

Vashon - Gateway to the Puget Sound!
There are three points of departure from Vashon: North Ferry to West Seattle, to Southworth, and south ferry to Point Defiance, Tacoma. Typically the travel time from our home to North Ferry terminal is 20 minutes and ferry time is another 22 minutes. The WSDOT ferry website is an excellent resource for ferry timings and wait times. Here is a link to their website: (website hidden). So far we have not had to wait for longer than 15-30 minutes. Once you reach Fauntleroy in West Seattle, downtown is just a 15-20 minute drive.
To Southworth: A 10 minute ferry ride from the north terminal, it is the gateway to the Kitsap peninsula and more - Port Orchard, Bremerton, Poulsbo, Bainbridge, Kingston, Hood canal, Port Townsend and the Olympic National Forest, are all accessible from Southworth.
The south ferry is closer to our home, about 7 minutes drive and runs to Point Defiance in Tacoma. The ferry run time is 15 minutes and once again WSDOT Ferries website is the best guide for wait times. Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington is a large urban park (702 acres) and includes Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, the Rose Garden, Rhododendron Garden, beaches, trails, a boardwalk, a boathouse, Fort Nisqually, an off-leash dog park, and most notably a stand of old-growth forest.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I'm an independent artist and call the beautiful Puget Sound my home! My husband and I have been scouting the islands for many years, until we finally landed a gorgeous beach house on Vashon-Maury Island to call our (vacation) home! We're so taken in by the raw, natural beauty of the place that we've decided to share it with others when we're not around! So go ahead, take a plunge!
Why the Owner Chose Other Seattle Properties:
We honed in on Paradise Cove after a search spanning over a half dozen years! Our parameters were simple: 1. Gorgeous beach house with breathtaking views! Check. 2. Sandy beaches that we can walk on barefoot, and our dogs can dash about madly. Check. 3. Privacy. The community must be small, and yet friendly when you need company. A mix of locals and vacationers would be ideal. Check. 4. Full sized bedrooms, with ample storage for all our gear (gosh! how much stuff do teenagers need!!) 5. Connectivity to Seattle, and all major Hiking, Historic sights, Museums, Parks, Trails, Kayaking, Boating, Art scenes, Theater, Wine Tasting, Fab Restaurants and more! Check, Check, Check and Check!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home was built by a Seattle Engineer, who moved in to Vashon full time in the 70s. The originally bought house #2 and built a small beach shack for weekend stays. When it was time for him to retire, his wife reneged until he built a house, not a shack! The Engineer relented, and purchased the next door lot and built what is now house #1 where they lived for over 30 years. The place is a charming, delightfully eclectic home we hope will be in our family for generations to come, and keep alive the esprit de jeune ever alive! The house is really a second home for us, and we visit every chance we get! It's a place to relax, contemplate, be together as a family, take long walks, visit local restaurants, art walks, watch performances at the local theater and... breathe in the cool, clean air! That Vashon is a mere 30 minutes from Seattle downtown makes it incredibly accessible. This was super important to us, as we live in Seattle - Eastside and didn't want to spend any more of our precious weekends on the road than we needed to. Olympic mountains, Gig Harbor, Hood Canal, Point Deception Park are all easily accessible and...there's so much to see, and take in! Vashon keep us coming back again, and yet again, and there's always something new each time!
