Overview

About the property

4 bd, 2 bath Inner Harbor, sleeps 8

Located on the prime Quartermaster Inner Harbor, overlooking the Yacht Club, with the best views on the Island.

Our beachhouse, with huge deck and Greatroom layout, is perfectly suited for summer enjoyment and relaxation. There are four bedrooms (three with king/queen beds and one with bunkbeds), two baths and a rec room downstairs with a ping pong table.

An open-concept kitchen, spacious and with views from every window, allows for lots of group cooking and entertaining.

Dining table accomodates 10 for dinner. The piano in the room ensures everyone is entertained!

The massive deck is the best of the house. Watch the boats parade to and from the Quartermaster Yacht Club, as well as the Marina, all day long. Surrounded by towering 200' trees, eagles and cormorants are amazing to watch. Very private, you cannot see neighbors and have your own private beach, dock and walkway. A gas grill is provided for your use.

A state-of-the-art eight (8!) person Hot Springs Hot tub overlooks the harbor as well. Using silver-ion technology, it relies on minimum chlorine, for those with sensitivites. It features a color-lightshow option for evening fun.

The Inner Harbor is calm and full of areas to explore. Two marinas, a Kayak Center, boat launch and park are all nearby. We offer a rowboat and two stand-up paddle boards, as well as all sizes of life vests. Seals, herons, cormorants and a huge variety of crabs and clams are all there to observe and enjoy.

Vashon is rural country, but you can walk to the best General Store left in the county, Harbor Mercantile (The Burton Store), a gorgeous 10 minutes walk. The Burton Coffee Stand is across the street. The Burton Loop, with it's renowned Kayaking Center, parks and summer camp, are also a walk away. You can flag-stop Metro buses at the front gate of the house, for a ride into Vashon, the ferry, Seattle or Tacoma. If you're driving, there is room for 4 cars.

The Fourth of July Vashon Fireworks display, which rivals Seattle's, is shot from a barge anchored in the inner harbor, directly in front of our deck. Definitely the best place for the 4th.

In July and August, Blackberries rule the island, and the sweetest and fattest come from this part of the island, everywhere you look. Recipes for ice cream, preserves, pie and sauces are in the cupboard. The sweet fragrance permeates the island!

About Suzanne Anderson

Bill and Suzanne Anderson have enjoyed every summer here with their three kids. They joke it's the easiest weight-loss there is, to come to the Island and have 10 lbs lifted off your shoulders!

Suzanne Anderson purchased this house in 1997

Why Suzanne Anderson chose Puget Sound North

It's the Inner Harbor! The Yacht Club is wonderful to watch, the animal sea life is amazing, and kids can row everywhere. Our heritage trees keep our deck private, and we're a walk from Burton and its charms. And the house is the perfect height from the beach: Low enough to get to easily, but high enough for a killer view.

What makes this house unique

The only private dock allowed in the Inner Harbor because it's grandfathered in. Motorcraft under 40' can load/offload guests right at the dock. Or folks can use our rowboat. Or bring their canoes or kayaks!

On July 4th, the island comes to our doorstep. The fireworks are shot from a barge moored in front of our deck. Fire up the BBQ and jump in the hot tub, it's the best place in town.

Wonderful Vacation in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in Seattle and loved staying at this rental on Vashon Island. After a fun filled day in the city it was so nice to take the ferry back to this paradise on the bay. The place is as beautiful as the photos suggest. The owners have done a great job updating the main living area and making the place so comfortable with a great hot tub, fabulous deck with a gas grill and lots of flowers and outdoor seating.

The kitchen is well equipped with most anything one might need. Suzanne the owner was very accommodating and we appreciated the special touch of fresh cut flowers, bottle of wine and fresh tomatoes from the garden.

It is an older home and there is no air conditioning but the breeze coming off the bay helped when the temps got into the high 80s.

There is a great grocery store (Thrifty) just 2 miles away that has everything you might need. Be sure to stop at the coffee shop a mile away for wonderful coffee and goodies and enjoy wine tasting at Vashon winery.

I would highly recommend this rental for anyone wanting an escape from the city and a fabulous view. It was by far one of our family vacation favorites.

Wonderful location, great time, definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

Suzanne's home is comfortable, spacious, scenic, convenient and well thought out. Everyone enjoyed the very large deck facing Quartermaster, the pristine hot tub, a hot outdoor shower, paddle boards and row boat. The ping pong table and drawing easel were also popular with the young (and young at heart) in our group.

Arrival and departure instructions were brief and straightforward. They were appreciated and added to a relaxing stay.

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Quartermaster Beach House did not disappoint! My family, which consisted of my husband and myself, our two children and their spouses and our 14 month old grandchild, had a wonderful time on Vashon Island. The house was perfect for us, giving us plenty of room to spread out. The views from the deck were amazing with the sunrise, the sea otters and the bald eagles soaring in front of us. The deck was great for meals and just relaxing, and the hot tub was a great place to relax both morning and evening! We enjoyed exploring both Vashon and adjoining Maury Island, including the old light house. Seattle was easy to get to on the ferry, you just need to plan ahead and leave plenty of time to reach your destination. Suzanne went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, giving us tips on activities and leaving fresh cut flowers in the rooms! We very much enjoyed our time here, and I would not hesitate to rent this house again. Suzanne, thank you for the help in obtaining a playpen for our grand baby, it was exactly what we needed. And thanks for sharing your lovely home with us. We will be back!!

This was a FABULOUS house on Vashon Island

  • 5 of 5

This house was a very comfortable and warm place to be

on the Island over Memorial Day weekend for our daughter's wedding. Suzanne was very helpful and accommodating during our stay. All of our family and friends who came for the wedding said that our house had the best view on the Island. It contained all of the essentials needed from bath needs to kitchen necessities. I would truly recommend this rental and give it 5 stars!!!

Car: recommended

The houses is located in the protected Inner Harbor, next to the Yacht Club. The sea is calm; seals visit. Watch a parade of boats from the deck, all day during Summer. Walk to the Burton Coffee Stand in the morning and chat up the locals; the Harbor Mercantile General Store has everything you need, including decent wines! The town of Vashon is 7 minutes away by car or bus, which stops at your gate.

Activities include walking and exploring, beachcombing, kayaking (avail. 5 minutes away), shopping the eclectic stores and renowned art galleries, biking, or take the foot ferry directly into downtown Seattle for the day. Come home with your fish and veggies from Pike Market, and grill them on the deck with a chilled glass of wine. Life rarely gets better that that.
