About Elizabeth at Winterbrook Realty

Welcome to our home! This is where our large family comes together to reconnect, relax, and laugh. We would love to share our home's unique beauty with you.

Elizabeth at Winterbrook Realty purchased this house in 1974

Why Elizabeth at Winterbrook Realty chose Vashon Island

Our dad designed and built this incredible house. It is open, yet comfortable, and has an expansive view of Inner Quartermaster Harbor. This spot is ideal for large groups, or a romantic retreat for two. We have decided to discontinue renting the property the end of June 2017.

What makes this house unique

Situated right on the beach, you will have access to clam digging tools, rocks for skipping, and wild blackberries for picking. Kayak and paddle board rental nearby. Bald eagles, harbor seals and seagulls will keep you company. It is the perfect place to unwind.

First-Rate Family House

  • 5 of 5

Parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers and graduates gathered here this May to relax and enjoy together, Campbell's is the perfect place. The light-filled house is very well-situated, comfortable, and welcoming, not at all like a rental. The kitchen is stocked for entertaining, and we enjoyed having enough pots, pans and dishes for every meal. There is privacy, peace and quiet, a very tranquil experience for each of us. We like to cook, so would have liked sharp knives in the kitchen, and we like to feel like kings while we sleep, so would have liked good-quality sheets, but these things are expensive details that few rentals provide. The rental rate of this house is so very reasonable and the experience was so satisfactory for all, that we recommend Campbell's to anyone thinking about staying on Vashon. Our functions were in Seattle and Tacoma - we found waiting for the ferry much nicer than sitting in traffic.

Gorgeous View But Not Much Else

  • 2 of 5

The view from this property is absolutely stunning and it does offer a large gathering area. However, the kitchen is quite small and rather outdated. The heat in one of the upstairs bathrooms didn't work, which made for some frigid mornings as the temperature was below freezing. The beds were not particularly comfortable--the house's furnishings could use a lot of updating, not just for style, but for comfort. Finally, the wifi was very spotty/slow. If consistent wifi (especially for streaming) is important to you, skip this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. In our years of renting, we've never had anyone recommend updated furnishings! It is certainly something to consider. The current furnishings are true to the era of the home. We appreciate you letting us know about the heat issue; we were unaware, and it has been resolved. Unfortunately, wifi is often is a little slow on the island, as a whole. Hopefully this will be improving. Thank you for your input.

Cozy and great for any getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought in the new year with a group of friends, and this property was perfect. Open living space so we could all visit and play games. Unique architecture was awesome and provided beautiful views. We had a great time and would rent this again!
