About Rebecca Morris-Chatta
We are long time Washingtonians who have been taken to New York for work. We come back to stay on our beloved Vashon "farm" as often as we can, several times a year. We have a large extended family, who love Vashon and the "farm" as much as we do.
Rebecca Morris-Chatta purchased this House in 2012
Why Rebecca Morris-Chatta chose Vashon Island
The Orchard House is close to Vashon's activities and amenities, yet away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It's very easy to live in as a family, with flexible sleeping arrangements, lots of recreation space, and a super kitchen for preparing family meals.
What makes this House unique
There is a guest house also for rent on the property if you have a really large crowd, or if you are planning an event. Perfect for weddings (Our daughter got married at Orchard House!) and reunions.

Lovely house on a beautiful property!
Orchard house is so pretty! We stayed here for my sisters birthday with some friends. The backyard is lovely and big! The kitchen is well stocked and a great size when cooking for a lot of people. House was clean and easy to navigate! I was little worried when we got there to find out that there is also a cottage on the property since we had specifically asked if it was ok that we play music at night before renting. We didn't want to disturb them, but it worked out just fine. I think the house is very well insulated because you could barely hear anything from outside the house! The fireplace was also wonderful.
We loved that is a short drive from downtown Vashon so grocery runs were a snap. We would definitely go back!
We weren't happy, but it's our own fault....
For a large group of single people, this might be a good fit. We would have preferred a king sized bed and a larger bathroom, but chose this property because our dog would have a safe place to go out, and for that, it was great. Also, we had booked for 10 days and only ended up needing to stay there a couple of days, and even with two days' notice we couldn't get any money back. I didn't read the cancellation policy so that's on me. Also, the couches in the living room are extremely uncomfortable. Also, I wouldn't consider staying here unless you really want to STAY on Vashon. The ferries are not very close, and of course you are ferry dependent on an island.
I’m truly sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay! We do show photos and describe the beds, so I’m not sure why you chose us if you were looking for a king size experience. In addition, we describe the commute experience and how long it takes to get places off island in our guest information. As you say, it might be your fault that you chose Vashon...You are also the first guest to say that our couches are “extremely uncomfortable”.
I’m sensing a little resentment that your last minute change of plans was not met with a full refund as you requested. Perhaps you can understand that we are not a hotel, that we cannot turn over the house at a moments notice to new guests, and that our property is booked weeks and months in advance. We would like to accommodate all reasonable requests and do understand when unavoidable situations arise. Yours was simply a personal choice to cut short your stay. We are sorry you didn’t enjoy Vashon or the couches. I’m refunding you $200 for your sore bums. Please don’t book with us again.

We loved our stay!
Sherry was very friendly, and helped me with all the questions about the house I had. The house was perfect for my family of nine plus two little labs. I would highly recommend this stay!
Very quiet peaceful stay
It rained the whole weekend which was a bummer, but we ended up not minding at all. We enjoyed family and there were tons of games we ended up playing all weekend, and the local restaurants had wonderful food and service! The property is very large and gated. We brought our puppy and he got to run around and play when the rain took a break. The upstairs loft was a big hit with the kids!
Relaxing, cozy home
We had a lovely time on Vashon Island. The home was clean,comfortable and quiet.
fun weekend retreat
The house is spacious and the yard huge and good for dogs. Close to town and KVI beach. The fireplace makes it nice and cozy.
