Property description

Stay over the tides. Watch the sun rise across the water. Explore your private beach. Fish, crab, paddle or swim off the deck into Puget Sound. Hike off the property into old-growth Burton Woods. Bike the Burton loop. Walk 0.2 mile to Jensen’s Point for watercraft rentals. This is your off-the-road and over-the-ocean northwest island paradise.

Our Oceanfront Eco Cottage is a rare solar-powered home on pilings located on a private beach in Quartermaster Harbor on the Burton peninsula. A short walk down to the wrap-around deck will find you nestled in views and surrounded by wildlife.

Hear the water under you during high tide and beach comb the bounty of the Salish Sea during low tide. You will enjoy a large bay window with skylight over the water to the east, French doors that open onto the deck to the north, and a garden window to the south. The cottage sleeps up to four and features an organic mattress and linens. Chaise couch pulls out to a full size mattress in addition to the queen-size bed. The kitchen is fully equipped. We have a flat screen tv for use with dvd player, broadband wi-fi for high-speed internet access.

Our Oceanfront Eco Cottage is located on Vashon Island, where rural lifestyles (we don’t have any stop lights!) and natural wonders coexist a short ferry ride from urban pleasures in Seattle and Tacoma. Vashon Island hosts a vibrant arts community and many delights for the foodie (including May’s Kitchen, the best Thai in the region) and farm-fresh crowd. Vashon also has three vineyards, the historic Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie, and destination Lavender Hill Farm. Vashon’s downtown is a few miles from the cottage, though our Burton neighborhood market and excellent espresso stand are within biking or walking distance.

Beyond relaxing on the deck and playing in the water, you can enjoy the Island’s extensive nature trails and bird watching (Quartermaster Harbor is an Audubon hot spot), a local cinema and a plethora of artist studios, live theater and live music.

Car: Recommended

Jensen Point Park in Quartermaster Harbor is around the corner. Enjoy this 4.0 acre shoreline activity park located on the east shore of Burton Peninsula off Harbor Drive.

Jensen Point provides one of two island boat launch and parking areas for motorized craft and a put-in access for hand carry kayaks and canoes. A small grassy area and picnic tables have been installed along the sand and cobblestone beach, which, due to the shallow water depth, is relatively warm for Puget Sound waters during the summer months.

The boathouse is home to Vashon Watersports, a kayak rental center, and to Vashon Island Rowing Club. It is also host to the Vashon Jr. Crew rowing program, operated in cooperation with the local rowing club and providing permanent instruction and operating space. Vashon Island Rowing Club is a year round adult rowing program, and Junior Crew is for boys and girls age 13 - 18. Juniors have a 12 week Fall season starting the last week of August and a 16 week Spring season starting the end of January in addition to summer camps.

Kayak and rowing classes are available for all ages. Vashon Watersports offers kayak rental and instruction out of the boathouse.
