About the property

Sunset Beach Paradise House

Sunset Beach Paradise is located on Vashon Island, on Puget Sound, in the small private beachfront community of Sylvan Beach. Just a short 15 minute ferry boat ride from Seattle, and a 10 minute ferry boat ride from Tacoma. The house is only 1.7 miles from the North end ferry dock which takes you to Seattle.

It is a wonderful Northwest contemporary waterfront beach home built in 1975, with western exposure, zero bank, a 180° view of Colvos Passage and a sandy, flat beach.

The house is built on four levels that includes a basement, a main level, a middle level 'bonus room', and a top level master bedroom. The main level consists of a combination living room/kitchen, full bathroom and a large closet. The basement consists of two small rooms, one with a double bunk bed, and the other room with a double bed. The middle level consists of a sitting room, and just off this room are two smaller bedrooms, one with a double bunk bed and the other with a double bed. The large master bedroom has a king size bed and a very nice bathroom with an oversized shower and double sinks. Most all of the furniture throughout the house is built-in.

Everything you need is here in our clean and comfortable beach home. There is a freestanding gas fireplace, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer (available for weekly guests), a BBQ, dishes, bedding, towels, three televisions, cable TV, VCR, DVD and complimentary wireless internet. Bring your boat since we do have a mooring buoy for the house.

Enjoy beach walking, fishing, boating, watching blue herons fish, and eagles soar. Listen to the lapping of the waves, see the sunset behind the Olympic Mountains and the moon reflecting on the water. It is a feast for the senses. Sit back, relax, enjoy!

Don't forget to bring an old pair of shoes for beach walking.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Sunset Beach Paradise several times per year for more than 12 years when we come to visit family on the island. The house is roomy and always clean. The hosts are warm and friendly. You can't beat the view of the sound from the deck and also from inside the house if the weather drives you inside.

Beautiful spot, quintessential NW cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful location, with a beautiful and quintessential feeling NW water house. It's relaxing, and you feel so far from the hustle and bustle. Our family loved this spot. The owners are kind, and helpful, and great to work with!

Look no farther...

  • 5 of 5

If your travels take you to the Seattle area and you want to spend a few days relaxing and enjoying life, look no farther. This property is located right on the water with stunning views of the Colvos Passage, Blake Island, and across to the Olympic peninsula. Getting there couldn't be easier -- just a 15 minute ferry ride from Fauntleroy (in West Seattle) and a 5 minute drive from the ferry terminal to the house. As noted by other reviewers, the house is comfortable, well equipped, immaculate, private, and very quiet. It's only a 10 minute drive to downtown Vashon should you need to purchase supplies, enjoy lunch or dinner, or do some shopping. During our four day visit, we explored the Island from Vashon Point to Maury Island, went to a winery (Andrew Will) and a cidery (Dragon's Head), and enjoyed dining at the Hardware Store, Casa Bonita, and May Kitchen. We also took the ferry to Southworth and drove up to Port Townsend, which is an easy and worthwhile day trip. However, we spent most of our time walking on the beach in front of the house and relaxing. The views from the house are truly beautiful with ever changing light, clouds, tides and breeze. You won't be disappointed! Finally, the owners were wonderful. They answered all our questions, made recommendations for places to visit and see while on the island, and gave us a call as we left Vashon Island to wish us a safe trip home. We highly recommend Sunset Beach Paradise House!

Unique, Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are still talking about our stay here. It was probably the best vacation spot we've ever been to and we are so pleased to have been able to give our 13 year old son this memory of the Puget Sound area. The view alone is stunning and the architectural design of the home is unique. From inside, it feels like being on a house boat because you are so close to the water. The property was clean, equipped with all the comforts of home and located in a quiet, nice neighborhood. We loved exploring the beach after the tide went out and sitting on the deck in the evening to watch the sunset. The owners were very responsive, kind and caring. Thank you for sharing your Sunset Paradise with us!

Anniversary at Sunset Paradise

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent a great week at Sunset Beach Paradise. This is a very nice property with an absolutely fantastic view of the western sky. We really enjoyed watching the Ferry boats run between Vashon and Southworth. The kitchen was very well equipped for most any task one would want to take on while on a vacation, Vashon has a good selection of dining choices if you prefer not to cook. We did not have need for the additional sleeping quarters though there were many additional bunks and full beds available for families. The area does get busier on a weekend, though we enjoyed the quiet during the week.

There is a lot of outdoor seating to enjoy the breeze coming off the water as well as the beautiful sunsets.

Vashon Island is wonderful place to explore with great shops and it offers a great scenic driving opportunity.

The property owners were on site when we arrived and returned at weeks end. They are kind and eager to tend to your needs but equally considerate to your privacy.

There are many properties listed as high bank which will give you a lengthy flight of stairs to access the beach, this property is at beach level, you will however be parking your car up the hill on the access road a short walk down the beach. This works well for those who intend to spend their time on the beach rather than driving around.

I strongly suggest getting to the property and looking around then making a list of needs prior to heading into town to make purchases. There is pantry of spices, oils etc that are available to use and to be replenished by the next visitors.

I cannot overstate how absolutely beautiful the sunset views are from this property. Be sure to check the tide tables and sunset times to know the best times for walks on the beach and your photo ops.

Owner's Response: Hello Richard and thank you for your review posting. It always puts a smile on our faces when our visitors enjoy our “piece of paradise” as much as we do. It was a pleasure to meet both you and Colleen and share some conversation. We don’t always get the opportunity to meet our guests and after getting to know folks through e-mail and phone calls it is always nice to meet our visitors in person. We thank you for your visit and hope that we might see you again. Our very best wishes, Marianna and Fiore

Wonderful place to get away from everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for four days and we wish we could have stayed for longer. The location is wonderful, the loudest sound is the lapping of the water on the beach. But it's only a 5 minute drive into the town of Vashon. We live in Seattle, just a quick 20 minute ferry ride away but we felt a 1000 miles away from the city. The house faces west so we could watch lovely sunsets. The house has everything you could need and we liked that we could make our own meals and not have to eat out every day.

The house was very clean and the owner checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. She is very helpful and friendly. We'd recommend this rental to family and friends and will definitely be going back.
