"This is a truly special get-away! We enjoyed sharing this comfortable home and its amenities with family while visiting from Texas. The landscaping and grounds are beautiful and have a secluded feeling. The view of the inlet is breath-taking. The home itself is roomy, updated, comfortable, and efficient. I highly recommend this property and will most definitely stay there again while visiting our son who lives in Seattle! Great experience!"

"My husband surprised me for my 50th birthday and booked this amazing house for my girlfriends and I to enjoy my birthday weekend. We were surprised all right! The home was amazing with amazing views and on the most incredible beach on Vashon Island. The accommodations were very comfortable and the master bedroom was unbelievable. An exercise or yoga room in the master bedroom was perfect as well. We enjoyed cooking in the well-appointed kitchen and even grilling our Alaskan King crabs on the BBQ. My friends surprised me by having a local chef come in Saturday night to prepare an amazing 6-course meal using local ingredients. At this point I felt as if I was in heaven! The location, the house, the beach, the amazing meals, we even watched two eagles soar around the property.
The owner, Nancy Carlsen, was delightful to work with and easy to communicate with. They have put a lot of love, thought and detail into their incredible home. I would stay there again and I would encourage anyone looking for the perfect home on Vashon Island to consider this one of a kind property, you will not be disappointed."

Our family made happy Christmas memories in this special home
"We spent a memorable, week-long family Christmas here. It's a brief drive from the Telequah ferry and a short drive from downtown. With only a couple of steps from the walk, we found access safe and easy for family members from 4 to 80. Quartermaster Harbor views from living and dining rooms, kitchen and master bedroom are an outstanding feature. At night we turned off lights and enjoyed Christmas lights decorating ships docked at the marina. By day, we watched waterfowl and followed gentle trails on woodland paths. The large, well-tended lawn is perfect for kids' play and a gentle walk down to the water. Indoors, the thoughtful layout of the house allowed 7 adults and 2 kids to have Christmas dinner without feeling crowded. The kitchen is equipped for preparing a Christmas feast and at least 2 people can work side-by-side easily. The layout provides surprising privacy for each bedroom and bath, and no sound from media room/playroom reaches upstairs. The master suite is especially inviting. Muted colors add to the spacious feeling. Soft, recessed lighting and luxurious bedding make this a good place to relax. Overhead, a skylight let us watch clouds and blue sky by day and listen to rain at night. Around the house, we had many choices of areas to sit and visit - in front of the fireplace, watching a foosball match - as well as quiet nooks for a retreat with a good book. Although tempted to linger in the large, comfy beds, a couple of us enjoyed a very short walk down a country road to a coffee stand popular with locals for a latte and morning paper. The pine paneling in the original part of the house gave it warmth and coziness and the carpet was nice to sit on while playing games. Toys, games, books and DVDs kept both kids and adults busy. The foosball table was a hit! The owners provided everything from maps, menus, walking tours, field guides and local history books to batteries and a first aid kit. The decor is a pleasant, understated mix of local memorabilia and Latin American textiles. We've rented everything from homes to houseboats in Europe and the US. Good communication can make such a vacation terrific or nightmarish. Sue's prompt and warm responses to all our needs made us feel at home. We made good memories. Thank you, Sue."

"If you are seeking a quiet place to listen to the tide ebb and flow, watch seals romp with their young and de-compress, this is the place for you. The owners make you welcome and take good care of you. The rental was perfect for our stay. I would highly recommend it. If you want more adventure, town is only a short drive away and there are lots of places to hike, swim and enjoy."
