Escape to Vashon and have a real Island experience with just a 15 minute ferry ride from West Seattle or Tacoma. It has been said that Vashon Island is a place you can B-R-E-A-T-H-E! Our little Asian style sanctuary with a view from every room, is just the place to do this. Just two minutes from the ferry dock, atop a hill for breathtaking views of the Puget Sound. Enjoy your morning coffee in the company of local wildlife like deer, eagles and raccoons. Or perhaps a glass of evening wine on the deck, seasoned with a glorious sunset over the Puget Sound. Watch cruise ships leaving Elliot Bay for Canada and Alaska, international cargo ships heading to Tacoma, sailboats regattas, and ferry’s crossing from Vashon and beyond. You have everything you need including a fully equipped kitchen and barbeque, for cooking and dining. Should you not desire to cook, Vashon has a variety of restaurants, bakeries, market deli’s, café’s, and coffee or tea shops, where you will find many locals love to congregate.
When you’re ready to get out and explore, it won’t take you long to find a beach to swim, picnic or beach comb, a trail to hike or bird watch, a quiet road to bike, or rent a kayak and float the many coves and bays surrounding the island. There is always something going on in Vashon whether it is a first Friday art show, a new movie at the theater, a speaker at the book store, festivals, Saturday Market, a music concert and on and on. Several local wineries’ offer tastings including one in our neighborhood. If you need a little pampering, a massage studio is right across the street! Should you decide to venture into Seattle for a day of sightseeing, a weekday water taxi is just 2 minutes away to whisk you to downtown Seattle where you can visit Pike Place Market, dine at waterside seafood restaurants and explore historic Seattle.
