About J. Nark

We are two families who have enjoyed many weekends and summers water skiing, bonfires, clamming and just relaxing on Vashon.

J. Nark purchased this house in 1984

Why J. Nark chose Vashon Island

Being only 15 min. via ferry to Seattle the commute from our homes to the island is under a 1/2 hr.

What makes this house unique

Our greatest joys have been listening to the Puget Sound lull you to sleep. Waking up to beautiful sunrises on the stillest of mornings. Beach combing. Watching the kids play in the water from morning to dusk.

Relaxing, Peaceful, Everything Someone Could Ask For!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. Peaceful sounds, beautiful view and relaxing. The owner, Joel was very good to work with. From our welcome call to our call at the end of the week to make sure all went well, Joel is top notch. The home itself had plenty of space and lots of sleeping arrangements. The kitchen was perfectly set up for our family and allowed all of our meals to be enjoyed by all at the same time. This setting is perfect for a large family or reunion. Many memories were made and this is a time we won't forget. Thanks Joel, It was awesome.

Soul Refreshing!

  • 5 of 5

From the first moment we walked in, this house had a warm, welcoming feeling, like we were visiting family that had gone to great lengths to get ready for our visit. The owners have taken such care to provide everything you might need down to phone chargers and extra toothbrushes. I'm not sure they actually provided the bald eagles landing on the beach in front of the house but if they did-nice touch! And the view! Sunrise over Puget Sound is stunning, then the lights of Seattle at night-gorgeous. Then falling asleep to the sound of the water lapping on the beach, nothing better. We spent our time beach combing, kayaking, boating, crabbing (who knew it was possible to get tired of crab?!?), and relaxing on the deck watching the ferries go back and forth. We did manage to explore the island; Seattle Distillery, Dragonhead Cider House, Vashon Coffee Roasters, Quartermaster Harbor. By far our favorite times were relaxing at the house. The beer fridge was a big hit with my family. We all went home and ordered one for our own houses! Hands down the best vacation rental I have ever seen! J, I'm not sure why you don't live there, but I'm glad that you don't so that I can stay there!!

My favorite getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth year in a row at this beautiful getaway on Vashon!! Every year there are new additions. The owners truly put a lot of thought into making this a home away from home. They have chargers for cell phones (both Iphone and droid) in the bedrooms, soundscapes you can listen to while your sleeping, a brand new sauna, and what seems like every thing possible you may need in the kitchen (even a crock pot). We did crafts, played games, laughed, told stories, made meals and broke bread on the amazing table in the kitchen. We walked the beach in search of shells, beach glass and rocks. Staring out at the beach is one of my favorite parts of the trip! That view is truly breathtaking, whether it's sunny, grey or raining. I truly can't wait for next year!!
