Recent Vashon Island reviews

  • Summertime on Vashon

    "We had a great stay at your cozy cabin! The view from your deck was the perfect Vashon Island summertime view. We played on the beach everyday and picked blackberries--the kids want to buy kayaks now. We were glad to be able to use the cabin as a homebase for visiting family and friends. Perfect location. We were so busy we hardly had time to read on the deck! And the dogs loved it, too. Thanks!"

  • So happy and comfortable it was hard to leave

    "We are so happy and comfortable in this cottage that I don't think we will be able to leave. We have stayed at a lot of rentals in the U.S. (including two pleasant rentals on Vashon) and in France, where our work has taken us. We have never been happier or more comfortable than we have been here. The house is so welcoming. Paris and the great forests of Provence have their charms, but this feels like home. We wake up early in the morning, cuddle up on the window seat and watch the light change on the water and the ferry glide back and forth. Yesterday we saw two bald eagles playing their tricks. These two were quarreling over a fish, which they carried off over the house. The hummingbirds seldom leave; they are so close that we've been able to show our grandchildren the minute working of their throats as they get their tongues through their beaks into the feeder flowers, the difference in male and female markings and the territorial behaviors of the males. It's like being in a bird blind, except it's warm and cozy and we don't have to wear waders. The owners have obviously made so many ingenious (and labor-intensive!) modifications to the house, without changing its wonderful historic cabin charm. We have everything we could possibly need and everything works well. Thanks so much for all of the hard work. We're having such a happy and relaxing time. This home has given us a wonderful holiday."

  • Perfect

    "My family has a long history on the island but does not currently own property there. This cottage was perfect; it had everything one could want. It was spotless, well equipped, and, best of all, smack dab on the beach. One morning I watched a deer forage at the edge of the water while the tide was high. Views are outstanding. I will be returning!"

  • Of all our many vacation rentals, this is our very favorite!

    "My husband and I have been coming to Cottage Paradise for over 8 or 9 years, since before owners Rita and Carl remodeled the kitchen and bathroom. We loved it even back then when both rooms were tiny and there was no wireless. Because i don't like to fly my husband and I travel to many, many cabins and vacation rentals around the Northwest from Washington to Oregon to Montana, and this has always been our favorite place to stay...the one we keep coming back to. (We feel almost possessive of the place!...And actually some of the photos on the site were taken by my husband who was/is a professional photographer. ) And it's not just 180 sunset view, though that is pretty awesome. (In wintertime when you are sitting in one of those window seats that looks out over the Puget Sound, you almost feel like you are outside.) It's also the charm and comfort of the whole place. Even the lighting invites warmth and a cozy feeling. I've been in many VRBO places and you can tell when the owners love their place and also actually vacation there themselves. Because it makes a difference in how great the kitchen is, how comfortable the bed is (love that it is king sized too!), how soft the towels and linens are, the comfortable sofas and chairs. (How many times i have rented a place where the place looked fabulous but the furniture was so uncomfortable!) I love the eclectic decor, the new roomy bathroom with heated tile floors. All of these things are important to me when on vacation and Cottage Paradise delivers. To me, this is just as important as the beautiful view. Also i can't say enough about how incredible the owners are. I feel like Rita and i have been friends all of this time that i forget we haven't quite actually met! I hope that my husband i will be renting Cottage Paradise for years to come even as we get older. I hope Rita and Carl will continue to rent this fabulous place!"
