Spacious waterfront home with iconic view of Mt. Rainer and Puget Sound. Cozy, unique spaces throughout the house and property. Street level access includes main bedroom, bathroom, spacious kitchen, living room area and large deck. Steps down to large green backyard with space for outdoor activities and access to the beach. Upstairs bedroom located in the apex of the A-frame evokes a sense of being in a tree house.
The large kitchen can become the center of activity with ample counter space, two sinks, and can easily handle preparation of gourmet meals. The breakfast nook has both water and woodland views with large window and built in bench. The adjoining living room has a wood stove and a gathering of comfortable chairs. A collection of games and cable TV available to add to your indoor activities.
The deck has southern exposure and catches sun throughout the day. A hot tub on the lower deck offers privacy while still affording a nice view of the water with passing sailboats or the local ferry. You can do some bird watching from there using the binoculars and book references laid out in the living room. You are likely to spot bald eagles, king fishers and many other birds favoring the mild climate of Pacific Northwest. You may even spot seals, otters or a pod of orcas either from the deck or during a stroll on the beach.
The bathroom tub has a strategically placed window, with outside plantings framing a view of Mt.Rainier. Bathroom also includes a large double headed shower.
The rental offers off street parking. A ten minute walk to the Tahlequah ferry, connecting Vashon with the mainland. 10 minute ride to hamlet of Burton with a grocery store, post office, cafe, farm stand, an antique store and a local marina, where kayaks can be rented. 15 minute ride to a key local gathering place where you'll find the Vashon Art Center, rostaria, health food store, used book store and ice cream parlor. 20 minute ride to the island's main hub, with a number of interesting restaurants, cafes, massage studios, cinema, library and businesses serving the local population of 10,000 residents. The island has a rich cultural life and history, and virtually every day during the summer has some interesting events - like the Sheepdog Trails - Strawberry Festival or Lego building classes at the local library. See for list of events during your planned stay.
For more strenuous activities you can walk or bike Vashon's extensive network of trails or explore the local beaches.

My family and I enjoyed the beach, hot tub and beautiful views at this beautiful location. Great place to get away from it all.
Amazing spot for a relaxing weekeweekend get away!
A really fantastic place to unwind, veiws, hot tub, the peacefulness.
charming, clean and accommodating!
We had a wonderful time in Annettes beach front house! This house is darling, built ins everywhere you look! The kitchen is wonderfully stocked and large enough for multiple people to cook in. The house was very clean and comfortable. Annette was wonderfully accommodation with us and our late arrival as well. The only recommendation I have, is to ask for the hot tub to be preheated (it was turned to luke warm, i assume to save power). Once we turned it up it warmed up to HOT but took the better part of the night to do it. Thanks for allowing us to stay. Such a quiet peaceful retreat. We can't wait to come visit again!
Wonderful getaway weekend!
Sometimes you just need to get away from the big city and CHILL! We had the best weekend at Annette's place. It was clean, private, cozy and relaxing. We really love hot tubs and we were not disappointed. Sunrise and sunset---we enjoyed the tub and relaxing. Ahhh... Highly recommend. We will be back.
Nice view but says it's handicapped accessible not really.
The View was excellent the place is clean except for cobwebs just need a little dusting in some areas. I am handicapped upper leg amputee what's they call AK I have a prosthetic but the land is on a slope. The bathroom entrance is too narrow for a wheelchair no hand bars in the restroom. Okay for the good stuff the view was nice had a great time on the deck even though it's a little slanted you can roll down hill pretty quick in your wheelchair. If you get my drift it shouldn't say handicapped accessible!
Other than the accessibility I believe most people would have a nice stay at this location!
It was a quaint and comfortable little a-frame right on the south shore of Vashon. It was quiet.
The hot tub was great for morning sunrise or evening.
