About Jessica

We (Mark & Jessica) married and bought the Kingfisher Cabin in the same year. It was a crazy time but we wouldn't change a thing. We love being able to share our beach hideaway and introduce others to Vashon.

Jessica purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Jessica chose Puget Sound North

Jessica's mom grew up on Vashon Island and that is where her parents met. She spent many summers visiting relatives and exploring the island and is happy that her family gets to continue the tradition in their own beach cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

The Kingfisher Cabin is located on a quiet beach and is surrounded by trees. We almost named it the tree house. The view from inside the cabin or out on the newly expanded deck is beautiful. No matter the weather - the water makes it better.

Kingfisher Cabin - Vashon Island

  • 5 of 5

My guests thoroughly enjoyed their weekend stay at your waterfront cabin feeling rested and rejuvenated. They are originally from New Zealand and reminisced about the similar climate (gray, drizzly) and water views.

Thank you providing a comfortable space!

Mom and Me Getaway at the Kingfisher cabin

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a nice and relaxing spot for my mother and I to go and enjoy each other's company. We found it in this beautiful place. Gorgeous views, easy to find, quiet and laid back, totally equipped for reading, listening to music, playing games, just looking at the water. It was a rainy two days but we felt warm and comfortable in the cabin. We made sure to build a fire in the wood stove when we arrived and the house was warm in a short time. We ate in Vashon, checked out the new Arts Center, took drives to see what was new on the island. We had a family cabin in Dockton for 42 years about 1/2 mile away so we know this area well and love it!!!

If you want to get away from the city or even just go someplace to soak up some incredible views, this is the spot. We are already planning our next visit and I want to bring my husband for a couple of nights too.

Peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée & I love to visit Vashon for little weekend getaways, and this was our first time staying at Kingfisher Cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed this cozy cabin! The wood burning stove really kept the place heated, and the kitchen was stocked with all the necessary utensils & staples to get us through the weekend. The panoramic water view from the deck & front sitting area is so peaceful. We will definitely be back!

Awesome Cabin with Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

I took my 2 daughters 12 & 6 and spent a week at this cabin. We had the best summer vacation ever. The cabin is fantastic, it has all the amenities that one could ask for. The views are breath taking, the sunsets are amazing. We saw seals, raccoons, and deer while staying here. The beachfront is perfect for collecting shells. It is so peaceful there, sitting out on the deck at night listening to the waves was very relaxing. Highly recommend and would love to visit here again.

A Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Kingfisher Cabin was the perfect place to stay for three days while we attended a wedding on Maury Island. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. The open living area and kitchen were bright and cheerful with sunlight, the bedrooms were cozy, and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals. The bathroom wasn’t clean, but it was stocked with soft towels and other useful items. Kingfisher Cabin is in a very peaceful location, and is within easy driving distance of various sites, such as Point Robinson and the main business area on Vashon Island. When we weren’t checking out the sites, we spent as much time as we could on the huge deck enjoying the amazing view of Quartermaster Harbor. The cool sea breeze was a lifesaver when the weekend temperatures climbed up into the eighties. We enjoyed staying at this rental and definitely want to stay again in the future!

Kingfisher Cabin is a hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

Excellent view! Lovely cozy cabin from which to watch the storms blow by. Easy access to the beach. Saw three deer , a bald eagle, and many shore birds. The beds and living room furniture were all comfy - making us feel very much at home.

Vashon Island is just a short ferry ride from Seattle, Tacoma or Southworth but feels a world away. This pastoral island is home to many artisans and small farms. Explore the many beaches, trails, farmstands and artist studios.
