About the property

Two bedroom, two and half bathrooms, lovely deck, house with Water views.

Our creek side home is perched on medium high bank waterfront overlooking Judd Creek and Inner Quartermaster Harbor. The house is warm and light with one master bedroom ensuite (attached bathroom) with comfy queen bed, and a second bedroom and full shared bathroom on the second floor. An additional half bath is located on the first floor.

The kitchen is fitted with the essentials for meal preparation and casual dinning and leads out to a covered kitchen deck with gas barbeque that overlooks a small fenced kitchen garden. The dining room table seats six comfortably. The living room has comfortable seating, a wood burning stove, TV, basic cable and DVD and a great view of Quartermaster Harbor. The water view deck table seats four and is a great place to enjoy all meals throughout the warm months of summer. Enjoy the changing view of the creek and the harbor, from the deck chairs, or from the cozy living room in front of the wood burning stove when the weather turns cold.

We are ideally located in the middle of the island just off of the main Vashon Hwy with the local bus looping by about once an hour. The bus does not run on Sundays. Check the schedule. Because of the remoteness of some of the hikes and activities around the island it is best to bring a car. We have parking for three cars in the driveway. Spend your days at one of the islands many festivals, tours or entertainments. Biking, hiking, kayaking. The island has a movie theatre, movie rental, restaurants, bakery, two grocery stores, pharmacy, ice creamery, bookstore, art galleries, eclectic shops, garden nursery, winery, distillery and many concerts, performances and gatherings to keep you as active as you like.

About Elsa Croonquist

I am a native of the Seattle area born and raised in the Northwest and have lived on Vashon for 18 years.

I hope to be traveling more, and wanted to share my home with guests when I'm away.

I'm very happy with hosting and hope guests will enjoy my home, the views and the great central location as much as I do.

Elsa Croonquist purchased this house in 2010

Why Elsa Croonquist chose Vashon Island

Why this property? It's the view, it's magical.

And the house is a casual, relaxing sanctuary.

What makes this house unique

The minute I walked into this house I was drawn to the living room and the view of the creek and the harbor. It's mesmerizing and very relaxing to sit out on the deck or in the living room and watch the view.

Can't wait to return!

Elsa met us upon our arrival to show us around the house. It's a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, not far from everywhere we wanted to go. The views from every window were wonderful. Judd Creek goes out into Quartermaster Bay just below the house location-wonderful watching the tide changes. Everything we needed was available. Wonderful decks to sit outside and enjoy the wildlife and water views. We can't wait for our next visit!
