About the Property

Waterfront Home, Mt Rainier, walk out beach, 3 masters, 4 ba. Wild life, fish

This beautiful Puget Sound WATERFRONT retreat is much more than a house. It was a well known architect’s home who envisioned living on a cruise ship right on the water. Our house, featured in Premier Homes, is one of a kind with over 200 FEET OF NO-BANK WATERFRONT and over 2 miles of very secluded beach for you to explore right from your door. This is the BEST beach of all on Vashon.

(Unfortunately, we cannot have WEDDINGS or large parties on the property.)

This area is part of the Aquatic reserve, the only one designated in Washington State. The Cascade Marine Trail runs through this which brings kayakers from near and far through the islands. You will be able to view all sorts of WILDLIFE, from nearby bald eagles to orcas, sea lions, otters, herons and other numerous birds.

The patio and “indoor” lighthouse will also be grand spots to view the many cargo ships and fishing boats that go by Vashon Island daily. Enjoy BEACH FIRES at night, along with late night beach walks which will be memories that will last a lifetime. Wait until you take a flashlight along the beach at night at low tide and view sea creatures you’ve never seen before!

The home is unique, with VIEWS OF MT. RAINIER FROM EVERY ROOM. Imagine waking up every day with a view of the majestic mountain and the sound of the waves of Puget Sound as your wake up call. The property faces mostly south, on the SUN SIDE OF THE ISLAND, with almost half of the rainfall of nearby areas, including the other side of Vashon. Madrona trees thrive here.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, gas stove, microwave, trash compactor and plenty of storage. You will be able to prepare your meals while enjoying the outside through your picture window. You will love eating in the stunning, ALL WINDOW DINING ROOM while watching the wildlife and ships go by.

You will find this Puget Sound Island home to be perfect for both families and adult couples. There are 3 MASTER BEDROOMS, a den with a pull out, and 4 bathrooms. The bedrooms include the 1000 square foot master with a king size bed, a day bed, a fireplace, sitting area, exercise room and private bath, double walk-in closets and Jacuzzi. Just outside your room, is another outdoor fireplace looking out over Puget Sound.

Another MASTER bedroom on the main level includes a queen bed, fireplace, large walk-in closet, and private bath. The upstairs MASTER bedroom includes a queen bed and twin bed. It has its own bathroom, with double sinks, a deck, and a wonderful view from it’s many windows.

You can gather in the living room for conversation and relaxation or the TV room / den just down the hallway with a pull out sofa. The TV, with satellite reception includes a CD player. This can easily be used as an extra bedroom as the 4th bathroom is conveniently located next to it. A convenience bar with refrigerator and microwave can keep your drinks ready and at your fingertips.

Vashon is a small charming town with many restaurants, art galleries, shopping and local activities for the 11,000 people who inhabit it. It's a quiet and secluded alternative to Whidbey Island. Just a short (20 minute) ferry ride from Seattle on the famous Fauntleroy ferry and you’re in paradise. The island offers a wide variety of activities that will thrill all ages.

Welcome to our getaway, BEACHFRONT home. We provide all the necessities, all you need are beach walking shoes, a swim suit, a fun loving spirit, a desire for the islands, and your dream vacation awaits you.


This is a Puget Sound Islands waterfront home. It has no bank waterfront and is located close to Seattle, south of Bainbridge Island and Whidbey Island.


This home works well for a small business retreat, family reunion, or just a private, relaxing vacation for two, and is close to Seattle. It is perfect for children and only 2 blocks from the Vashon Island Pirate Camp.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are the Carlsens. We live in WA and Ron has a car leasing company and Nancy is retired, but busy constantly with projects, grandchildren, hobbies and activites.

Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island, WA, USA:
My husband and I fell in love with this house a few years ago after we had been looking for 5 years for private waterfront property. There is nothing like it on any of the islands we looked at. It's so private and everyone is very friendly. We have 16 grandchildren and they LOVE coming to the beach. It's perfect for us, since we live in Bellevue and can come out anytime all year long. Everyone who visits tells us they feel they have found a little spot of paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to be able to walk the beach from our home and watch the wildlife, without the noise of the city and the bustle of people. It's a chance to get away, while being very close to activities, if we want them. There are many excellent restaurants on the island, art galleries, garden and lavender tours,and planned activies for all ages. But basically, we like to stay at the house and enjoy the ever changing scenery, whether dining on the patio, or just relaxing on the beach or inside the house. There is no place we'd rather be but here.
