Overview

About the property

Be a Keeper at the Pt. Robinson Light Station on Vashon Island

The island's own lighthouse station offers weekend and week-long stays in the two renovated keepers' quarters. The two residences share the beach with the lighthouse and other features of the historic light station. Both residences are available for weekly rental through the year and offer groups of up to six adults a wonderful way to enjoy the beach, the Sound and the islands of Vashon and Maury.

The Keepers' Quarters A at Point Robinson Light Station is a modest three bedroom, two-bath, two-story bungalow perched near the lighthouse on the shore of Puget Sound. It offers a wondrous porch looking out over the Sound and at Mount Rainier.

Why Eric Wyatt chose Vashon Island

Point Robinson - what a special gift this property is to the people of Vashon. There are not a lot of places in the world where you can witness whales breaching an arm length away, giant ships steaming by in the night or watch Great Blue Herons fish in front of a lighthouse. So, on behalf of our Island and the Vashon Park District, welcome to Point Robinson Lighthouse. You're going to love it.

Near and yet so far away

  • 5 of 5

Point Robinson is just a short ferry ride from a busy metropolis and yet it is a world away from the hustle and bustle. Keeper Quarters A is a wonderful way to spend time away from the bustle of every day life. The view from the porch is priceless. The serenity of the beach is so relaxing.....We have visited here the last 5 years in April and have always looked forward to our return.

Had a great time and the facility is wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

Only complaint is the two twin beds are very uncomfortable. My friend and I always get the twin beds and we never get a good nights sleep.

Perfect long weekend getaway i in any weather!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both keepers quarters for a long weekend in Mid October. Though for the first couple of days it was rainy and windy, we were very comfortable in the cozy houses, and enjoyed watching the power of nature around us. Very well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Great spot!

Fabulous family gathering spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the two houses near the lighthouse this month, for our eldest son's wedding. We had family from several states gathering together to share these treasures! The location was ideal and the view from the rocking chairs on the front porch - unmatchable! These homes are not fancy but they are comfortable. We look forward to when we can meet here again because our experience was a full five stars!

Our stay was perfect in every way -- weather, accommodations, accouterments, welcoming staff, thanks

  • 5 of 5

It has been a long time since leaving a house, a location a destination made me so reluctant and sad. It was everything i had hoped for our stay (minus no fireplace or beach fires). Nearly every imaginable creature comfort were already in place, whether it be the appointments in the kitchen, the bedrooms, the dining room, the rocking chairs on the porch, the views of the shipping lane, Mt. Rainier, the beach, the wildlife, the air, the staff, and should it have been foul weather, there were books, games galore, puzzles, CD's, music, and much more. Please let time and circumstances allow me and mine to return to this little niche of Paradise, so close and yet so far away. Thank you all.
