This is not the 4 Seasons, but is pretty unique and sure to make a memory. 4 Seasons isn’t noted for eagles and an amazing forest setting and Puget Sound view, but this place sure is.
It's a 2 bedroom yurt and trailer combination in a nice wooded area with a water view in the distance . Less than 2 miles away from Vashon town. Perfect for a nice walk, bike ride, or a morning run. The trailer is a 2010 Casita Liberty. It contains a bathroom/shower combination with its own sink. It also has heating and air conditioning, a king sized bed with a mattress, hot and cold water, and a small kitchen with a propane stove and refrigerator. The yurt is 200 square feet inside with wooded floor, fold out futon bed and a single bed. If you are a glam-camper, this combination is for you! Most guests prefer to use the trailer as a dining / bathroom / shower / chill area, and the yurt for sleeping and relaxing.
Our family lives on the lower down on our property. About 300 feet from the Yurt and Trailer (far enough to way to have you feeling like you are away from us, and we keep to ourselves).
You will have access to the Casita and Yurt. The lower property is a private residence, so off limits to visitors. Any questions or concerns should be handled by text and calls with the host Bruce.
This rental is for the trailer and yurt, and dedicated parking spot for 1 car only. All amenities down below are part of our own home and not part of this rental.
I prefer calls and texting to make sure your needs are being met.
1. You will be on a wooded property facing SeaTac from across the Puget Sound. 2. Uptown Vashon and all its great amenities is just 1.5 miles away. 3. KVI beach, one of the best walking areas, is ~ 1 mile away.
The Casita and Yurt come with a dedicated parking spot for 1 vehicle.
Other things to note
Pets are not welcome unfortunately. We have a small dog on the lower property, and want to ensure no harmful incident. Bruce is very glad to talk about Vashon Island features and ideas for outings and great places to eat.
- Smoking, non-paying Guests and Parties - strictly not allowed in the Yurt or Casita
+ As this is "glamping," we are providing eye shades and ear plugs if that might improve your sleeping experience.
- For Vashon walks (our favorites):
+ KVI beach is fantastic - about 1 mile away.
+ Fisher Pond is also a lovely wooded forest walk. About 2.5 miles away.
+ Point Robinson is another winner...an old coast guard station and lighthouse are neat features.
- For Vashon restaurants:
+ Hardware store is a great, consistent restaurant with beautiful art adorning the walls. American food.
+ May's Kitchen is a Thai restaurant that's just as good as any you will find. Very popular place. Call to make a reservation.
+ Snap Dragon is a local favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner - has vegan options.
+ Zamorana's is the best Mexican food by far. Owner actually was featured with Martha Stewart on the wall. Reasonably priced fresh food.
+ Thriftway has very good salad bar, burrito bar and hot food bar if you want to take your food to go.
+ Pure plant Kitchen and Organic Juicery - serves raw, organic and glutton-free cuisine for the ultra-health conscious.
+ Gravy is another winning dinner restaurant run by a noted chef. Can be popular...and not too many tables.
+ Cafe Luna is great for coffee, snacks and WiFi.
+ Minglement is the old "Stewart Brothers Coffee" roasterie that became SBC (Seattle's Best Coffee). It's a quaint little place for a huge array of tea selections and locally roasted coffee. It also has organic grocery items, herbs and supplements. They also have amazing ice cream! The building itself is a historical treasure. Sitting outside on the porch couldn't be a better way to pass time and people-watch like in the good old days.
- For ice cream:
+ ZuZu's at Minglements is probably our favorite
+ Glass Bottle Creamery is right in the middle of town - same side of street as the Vashon Theatre
+ Thriftway has very good ice cream and drinks to go
- For water sports:
+ Jensen Point has a kayak / sup board rental shop that's part of the boathouse. Nice park area for lounging / eating at a picnic table.
