Comfy private bedroom with closing door and private bath plus a large room with a gorgeous water view to sprawl out in. Wifi, large screen TV and privacy.
Much as we like children ( we have two), we are not set up to accommodate children.
The bedroom has a small refrigerator and microwave tucked in the closet.
The downstairs space is closed off by a sliding door so our guests enjoy privacy.
Our house is on a small road and is very private.
Our privacy, water view and central location to the town of Vashon makes this ideal for visitors to the Island. However, if you are interested in exploring Seattle and Tacoma, we are an easy ferry ride away from both these cities. We do recommend bringing a car or at least a bike as public transportation is quite limited.
As longtime Vashonites who enjoy outdoor activities as well as inveterate travelers we are a welcoming spot and hope to make you feel comfortable. The spot is ideal for one or two. However, we do discourage children. It is not as if we don't like children (we have 2) we just find they may take up more space than we are comfortable with. While there is a good chance we will be sharing the house with you, we see your stay as a launching spot for your own excursions or a spot to lay your head while visiting family and friends on Vashon. We have two cats which come and go in the house. We can keep them outside during your stay if this is an issue. A sliding door downstairs provides privacy between the upstairs space and our space downstairs.
You are welcome to use the kitchen as needed or hang out on the porches in good weather. We have a BBQ you are welcome to use.
We are happy to point you in the direction for sightseeing and recreating. Otherwise, you are free to do your own thing. We are often gone during our guests' stay so there are times when you have the entire house to yourself. When we are in residence, we are in and out.
As your space is up a flight of stairs as well as stairs from the parking area up into the house, we are not set up unfortunately for folks who have difficulty navigating stairs.
We also appreciate no shoes in the Airbnb space. Slippers of course, are fine.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets and children.
I am originally from the East Coast however I have lived in the Seattle area for the past 35 years. My husband and I have raised a family on Vashon Island which is in Puget Sound off of Seattle. We have lived in our spot for over 20 years. We love the privacy, beach access and view. Vashon is a wonderful, friendly spot where we have raised a family and it appears we intend to stay. I work for a winemaker and love to travel whether for work or pleasure.
