About the Property

House, 3-4 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This wonderful house is Vashon Island's ONLY VRBO PROPERTY offering a pristine sandy beach on the warm, sunny Puget Sound east side of the Island and within easy distance from the Seattle ferry. It's 180-degree view soars over an 11-mile expanse of water towards majestic snow-capped Mt. Rainier. While only 4 minutes by car from the Seattle Ferry dock, it enjoys perfect quiet due to the protection of Dolphin Point. Augmenting this exclusiveness is its “Residents-Only” access road. The house is located on over two miles of open beach from the Vashon Ferry Dock to the Muckelshoot Shellfish Reserve. It includes Winghaven, your neighborhood park, which is a little-frequented kayaking destination with walk/paddle-only accessibility and which has an area for frisbee or croquet (provided). The only thing left to do is read Betty McDonald's 'Onions in the Stew', written about this beach from her house nearby.

Imagine an evening soak in the Tiger River deluxe spa, stars overhead and city lights in the distance! Its Freshwater ozone filtration system requires only minute chlorine for freshness. Enjoy the hydromassage jets or just soak in the quiet of the waves on the beach.


Enjoy views from every room. Prepare meals while virtually floating over Puget Sound with the music of the waves on the beach 8 feet from your house. Morning coffee or an evening cocktail from one of the lanais, privacy for two while the others do the dishes? BBQ at the Waterfront? Dine at the deck’s picnic table or at the dinner table for 8 in the expansive living area? Relax on leather couches. Private bedrooms feature comfortable plush beds (no 'hide-a-beds' in the living room!). The game room downstairs features X Box, Nintendo, board games, kids books, and toys. Enjoy beachcombing, beachglass gathering, and low tide wildlife viewing (guidebooks provided).

Walk the beach. Walk 20 minutes to the Ferry Dock's restaurant for dinner or drinks in their waterfront bar. The latte stand there is open for early risers. Our newly famous May's Kitchen, one of Bon Appetit's top ten Thai restaurants in the nation, graces Vashon town. Or, stroll onto the West Seattle Ferry for a fun ride to Endolyne Joe's Eatery for a variety of menu items and Northwest brews on tap. The Passenger-Only boat will transport you to fabulous Elliot Bay and downtown Seattle and back in the afternoon (cheap cruise).

Walking south, pass Winghaven Park to the huge tract of land owned by the Mukleshoot Indians. The tribe has a small oyster and gooey duck clam hatchery on its beach. The town of Vashon is 6 just miles away by car. It offers a gourmet grocery with excellent wine offerings, open-air Saturday farmer’s market, specialty shops, bookstores, fine restaurants, art galleries, bakeries, movie theater and more.

Please note: House is not suitible for parties or large family gatherings. We have an 8 person maximum occupancy at any one time, day or night. Parking is limited to 2 standard size cars.

Car: Recommended

Sand toys and life jackets for the kids provided. BBQ. There are two parks down the beach which are accessed only by the waterfront. They have lovely, wooded trails, extensive property and are located in a southerly direction from the house. Walk on beach to the north and round Dolphin Point where you can dine at a Mexican bar/restaurant. You may want to rent kayaks for the week of your stay. They are available and can be delivered to you. Collect beach glass which you will find in profusion. The neighbors are friendly but few. On the 4th of July you are welcome to set off fireworks on the beach, carefully of course. There is a beautiful but narrow paved private road to house. It is a switchback and runs through a beautiful forest with some mammoth Douglas firs. Vashon has many Land Trust/Parks trails. Maps provided. Dockton Park has a swim float, many fellow bathers, warm showers for you as you exit the water. Saturday Market is a marvelous place to shop, mix, listen to music, view Vashon crafts, weavings, sample baked goods, including fire baked pizza. There are many Concerts in the Park during the summer. Check Vashon Park District website for details. Strawberry Festival, mostly music, not mostly strawberries, happens in July. The Lavender Festival. Other Vashon events change annually. However, these are remote from the pristine privacy of the house and are easily avoidable if desired.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are sailors and ardent water/wildlive lovers.

Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island, WA, USA:
We searched for years to find the 'perfect' waterfront property. We finally gave up. The very next day, we found IT. Read whatever philosophy into this you like, but it is truly a 'dream house' in every way for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With an acre of land behind it, long sandy beaches, big tides, large tracts of land nearby, the house is so serene!. We love beachcombing or trail hiking, our boat out in front for day sails. We glean firewood from logs afloat and mushroom hunt in the cooler seasons.
