Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

Amazing ocean view home with 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths (3,000 sq ft). Has everything

Escape to the Island on a serene ferry ride less than 15 miles from Seattle (Fountleroy), Tacoma (Pt. Defiance), or Southworth terminals to Vashon Island, the Nantucket of the West Coast, where another world awaits you – a place for relaxation, entertainment, friendly people and nature.

Discover Summerhurst Retreat, a 3,000 sq. ft. custom-built Lindal cedar luxury entertainment home with beautiful and expansive views of Puget Sound (ocean), the Cascades (mountains), alongside modern design custom amenities!

At Summerhurst Retreat, we pride ourselves in cleanliness, quality, modern spa-like design, and entertainment. We’ve personally stayed in many vacation homes, and researched what would make an exceptional rental home.

The home is spacious with 3 floors, 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with vaulted ceilings and classic North-West architecture. The central feature in the home is a 22-foot soaring cathedral ceiling encompassing the main room and upstairs loft. Unwind in the master bedroom (king bed) with a spa-like, modern bathroom (2 sinks, a 2-person shower and indulgent soaker tub) with warming towel bars. Relax in the comfortable guest bedroom (queen bed) and have the kids in the loft (4 twin beds), each room with its own en suite bathroom. Downstairs, there is an office with desk, computer, printer and twin bed. All beds have comfortable memory foam mattresses, with high-thread count cotton linens and high-quality towels throughout. The house comfortably sleeps 9, however, we can accommodate up to 12 (with high-quality SoundAsleep Dream Series air beds - 2 queen and 2 twin). A serene color palette of white walls, fir and maple wood, exposed wood beams, and black slate tile will remind you of relaxation in a high-end massage studio.

The ground floor has the garage, the main foyer entrance, a small office / bedroom, a powder bathroom (.5), the guest bedroom, and the guest bathroom w/ shower tub. The second floor has the kitchen, dining area, living area, main room, master bedroom, master bath, and wrap around deck. The third floor has a loft bedroom and bath.

Kitchen and Dining: Prepare gourmet meals for a group and host your events in our modern, well-equipped, and spacious gourmet kitchen and dining areas (serves 12). It truly is a chef’s delight! The kitchen has four large workstations, quartz surfaces, quality cooking accessories and loads of brand new stainless steel appliances (Subzero refrigerator/freezer w/ ice, Subzero 100+ bottle wine fridge, Dacor electric double ovens, microwave and warming drawer, Miele 5-burner induction range with exceptional hood and a roomy Miele dishwasher). Enjoy the oversized farm house style sink with industrial faucet sprayer, restaurant-style open shelving look, and all the necessary table-top accessories and appliances. We’ve spared no luxury, from including a professional Kitchen-Aid stand mixer to Reed and Barton silverware for a modern, elegant table setting. We have a 2-burner propane BBQ (during dry months: approx. May through October). The formal Saarinen marble table seats 6, a kitchen banquette table seats 4, a small table can sit 2-3, and the huge island has 4 tall bar stools. Enjoy the food and the view as your guests will be impressed and well catered in this restaurant-like dining experience.

Entertainment features: The property has many entertainment features, including: a brand new 6-person premium Sundance hot tub overlooking Puget sound, a large deck with chairs, an indoor gas fireplace, an outdoor wood burning fireplace and seating area, wireless Dish satellite internet (Wi-Fi), two 32-inch flat screen TVs, one 50" flat screen TV with Nintendo Wii system (4 controllers and lots of games), 200+ channels (Dish), board games and cards, a bocce ball court, horse shoes, a dart board, a thorough collection of books for your reading enjoyment. For those who enjoy gardening or taking walks, take in the Japanese-inspired gardens with maple, pine and magnolia trees, flowering shrubs and plants. Enjoy the fireplace by the trees and share drinks and stories with friends. Inside or outdoors, there is plenty of room for entertaining or just relaxing and getting away from it all.

Gather together for enjoyable conversations. We have many areas to share memories together, including the main dining table, bar and dining areas, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, as well as luxurious seating conveniently located throughout the home.

Enjoy the divine heated floor tiles in the kitchen, dining room, and master bathroom. The home is filled with hardwood and slate tile flooring, vaulted ceilings, skylights, wood doors and moldings, and well-appointed, complete furnishings throughout. We decorated the home to have a peaceful, inviting, low-allergen, Zen-like retreat setting.

Lots of sun and light: Enjoy the amazing views of the Puget Sound and feel the warmth of the sunlight (South East facing) from the expansive 2-story cathedral main room, the many windows and skylights in the dining area, foyer, and bedrooms. Use the amazing loft for yoga or meditation space overlooking the ocean as you watch the sunrise each morning. We have upgraded the home to dimmable soft-white LED lighting, so you will surely find the ambiance relaxing as you can set a custom mood.

The home is on 0.75 acres in a quiet, private area of Vashon, so you will have restful experiences here. Bald eagles, deer, and many small songbirds make the outdoor space here peaceful and serene, as you enjoy watching the ships and sailboats pass through the shipping lane. This is a great chance to limit your use of technology and enjoy the time with your family, friends, a yummy home-cooked meal, or a good book. This home was designed to be a welcoming oasis, for those wanting the complete designer-home experience, so pick up some delicious gourmet groceries from Vashon Thriftway or your fresh fruit and vegetables from the Saturday Farmer Market, and come stay for a while!

For those wishing to escape the city, there is nothing better than Vashon. Since it is only traveled by ferry, it has a truly island experience with a friendly local culture. It definitely has a small-town community spirit. The island of Vashon is just 15 minutes ferry ride away from major cities, but feels like you are on a relaxing island getaway. It offers a gourmet grocery with excellent wine offerings, specialty shops, bookstores, fine restaurants, art galleries, bakeries, a movie theater and more. Please strike up a conversation with the locals as many people are sociable here.

Adventures: If you are into cycling, Vashon is a great getaway to log in miles of road-based wilderness or coastline. If you enjoy watersports, you can paddle around the island (Kayak rentals available at store) or enjoy fishing or crabbing on the pier. There are many hikes to enjoy and many birds and animals to see. Several accessible beaches are within driving distance. The best sand beach (KVI beach) that has parking is about a 12 minute drive. Take a day trip to downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park and Mount Saint Helens, or the many museums in the general region. The home guide contains many activities to do, so simply bring some clothing layers and appropriate shoes and you should find many activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Wildlife: Abundant wildlife, including small birds, hawks, bald eagles, deer, raccoons and the friendly neighborhood dogs visit the property and area. You truly feel like you are retreating in nature. If you are a gardener, you will enjoy almost year-round flowers from the property.

It is time to unwind, pamper yourself, reconnect with nature and each other and truly experience what a vacation should be. You deserve to have a relaxing, breathtaking, and luxurious vacation rental experience, and so we hope that you book with us!

Why Summerhurst Retreat chose Puget Sound North

Once you step foot on the property and inside the home, you will immediately understand the magic of the place. The home has a wonderful energy, expansiveness, and spirit. Once we found the home, we immediately fell in love.

What makes this house unique

This home is one of the few custom-designed Lindal cedar homes in the area. This type of home perfectly complements the North-West territory and views. The view here is amazing and the number one reason we purchased the property. However, there are so many exceptional qualities about the house that it is too long to list. Please read over the description to feel the experience at Summerhurst Retreat. You will not be disappointed with this home as everyone who visits wants to stay.

Restorative getaway surrounded by simple elegance

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly the experience my weary soul needed. Bald eagles out the front window, rainbows over the water from my seat in the hot tub, a sea lion rolling in the sand on a sunny day. Forever long views of green, moss and ferns, with winding roads and trails. On the flip side, plenty to do with others...quaint town for shopping, restaurants, massage. The house itself had all we needed and then some. Jeff was exemplary as a host. He made himself available to any and all questions but did not require anything of us. As promised, the house was equipped with every modern convenience and creature comfort without being cluttered. I think I'm ready to tackle life at home again after rebooting here at Summerhurst. Thank you!

Luxury and comfort with a stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Labor Day weekend with a family of 10 at Summerhurst Retreat this year and found the house to be perfect! There was more than enough space for everyone in this beautiful home. The open floor plan allows plenty of space to move around. Just about everyplace in the house has a awesome view of Puget Sound. The kitchen and master bath with heated floors was especially nice. There is a hot tub and wood burning fireplace outside that we did not get to enjoy as we were busy with other activities and plan to do so next time! I was hoping for comfortable beds and was not disappointed. The beds were VERY comfortable which allowed for a most restful sleep. The cool climate allows for very relaxing time on the deck while sipping just about any hot beverage. The availability of a computer was very convenient to check emails and even do some work if necessary. The home was exceptionally clean and with all modern appliances. If you like cooking, relaxing outside and inside with panoramic ocean views, sleeping comfortably and just living in luxury, this place will make you happy!!

Tranquil setting & all ingredients for a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get-together to celebrate a big anniversary & a couple birthdays. This was planned for 2 years in advance, so we wanted everything to be just right. Summerhurst didn't disappoint. Plenty of room, and all as described. Easy communication via text & email as we added last minute guests and had questions. Jeff always got back to us within an hour or so. A bit pricey, as we rented during peak time (mid-August), but well worth it. Some cool mornings one of us would get up and watch the sun rise while sitting in the hot tub. Two evenings we sat on the deck watching meteors streak across the sky (OK, that may not happen every visit!). Games were played, hikes were taken ... it was just a wonderful and comfortable setting. Yep, we'd do it again!

Fabulous vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Summerhurst is one of the best properties we've stayed in worldwide. It is very comfortable from the wood floors, well-equipped kitchen, beautiful bathrooms to cozy beds. Every detail is perfect. The view is spectacular. The property manager was excellent. Readily available by text to answer questions. I highly recommend this property and look forward to coming back.

DETAILS:

Since my daughter decided to get married on Vashon our family needed a place to call home for a week. The Summerhurst Retreat property was the perfect match for us. During the week we had to accommodate 4 to 8 adults on a given night. All the beds (including the bunk beds) were extremely comfortable! Along with being spacious, well stocked, and esthetically pleasing the bedrooms with their adjoining bathrooms provided convenience and privacy. The kitchen layout and appliances were more than ample for our daughter, who is a pastry chef, to make her wedding cake. There was adequate refrigerator and pantry space to store food and supplies for a week stay. The general living area allowed plenty of room for everyone to relax without feeling cramped. The morning of the wedding the dining room made the ideal place for the beautician and the make-up artist to perform their magic on the bride and attendants without interfering with the others getting ready. A big plus was even when the washer and dishwasher were on the bathrooms’ always had hot water and great water pressure. Those of us who stayed several days after the wedding enjoyed relaxing on the deck with the gorgeous water view. We all had good intentions on using the outside fire area and hot tub, but ran out of time and/or energy before taking advantage of either one.

To the owner(s):

Two thumbs up to the detail given to the house manual. It came in handy when I needed help on how to work the kitchen appliances, especially error codes.

What is the brand of flatware in the kitchen? We really liked the weight and design of the flatware.

Loved the bar in the kitchen, but I need to grow longer legs to get on and off the bar stools.

The property is great! The upgrades are nice. The overall feel of the house when you walk through for the first time is breath taking.

Beautiful modern and perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this gorgeous property for my soon-to-be, and now officially, in-laws for our wedding week! They absolutely adored the home and it was the perfect place for their family to get together and connect while preparing for the festivities on the island. Summerhurst is a beautiful home with amazing views of Puget Sound from the wrap around deck, and the views at night are spectacular. The home is spotless and the gourmet kitchen made us all envious to have something similar in our own homes. There was absolutely everything you may want in the kitchen to prepare lovely meals. The beds were very comfortable and the linens beautiful. Having several lovely bathrooms was wonderful when it was time for all of our family to get ready for the wedding. It was our first experience staying at a VRBO and it was perfect! Thank you for making our stay on Vashon absolutely wonderful!
