We had a wonderful time and the surroundings couldn't have been more beautiful! You have a perfect getaway. The house was even better than we had hoped and you had everything we needed. Absolutely no complaints here. :) We can't wait to come and visit again!

Paradise found. This cozy modern cottage over the water was peaceful, relaxing and everything we were looking for on our getaway weekend. Everything was clean and comfortable. So many highlights, from the private beach at low tide, to the amazing steam shower, comfy bed and couch, and water views that I could stare at for hours. If it were only a bit warmer outside, I never would have left the deck. It was the perfect size for my husband and I. Can't wait to come back!

We enjoyed our stay here. We were coming in from Seattle so it was a quick getaway for my husband and I without having to go too far away. :) And Lee was totally right in his description - even though you are so close to the city, it feels like you have transported yourself to a different place completely. We knew we were in for a treat when we got off the paved road and started on the gravel road towards the water. It was secluded yet just a quick drive to the nearest grocery store and downtown. We fell in love with the place, stainless appliances in the kitchen stocked with all of the cooking supplies you would need to cook a nice dinner. The place was open and spacious yet cozy and don't even get me started on the bathroom. The shower was amazing and with all of the windows, you got so much natural light during the day and at night, you could see the lights from the mainland - very romantic! We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone considering this place- yet at the same time, selfishly want to keep it a secret so we can book it and stay whenever we want!

We stayed at this house for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday - it was perfect. Amazing view, quiet and secluded setting, yet conveniently close to town. The steam shower is amazing! We would definitely recommend to friends and would love to come back again.

My wife and I decided to take a trip to Vashon over Christmas. We have several friends that live on the island but we wanted to have our own space so we started hunting for some cool lodgings. This home is literally as good and as cool as it gets. You can tell the owner is a modern architecture enthusiast - clean lines and all the modern amenities you could ever want. At the rate they are charging, you feel like you're ripping them off. Everything is top of the line, super stylish and very clean. We've never experienced a steam shower before and I am now saving for one. If you go, turn on the steam, let it fill the shower and then turn the shower head to cold - it's the bomb.
As you can tell the house was amazing but the the piece of property and the view put it to shame. I really can't describe in words how beautiful it was. During the day you're looking over the sound on what feels like a private cliff with mountains on the horizon and the occasional vessel floating by. At night, the moon lights up the sound and you feel like the only house on the island. There is also a well maintained walkway down to a private beach - a major plus - especially in the summer.
Lee, the house manager, was great. So accommodating and friendly. He even stocked the kitchen with some amazing, fresh coffee and all the accompaniments.
It was a fantastic trip to a fantastic island. We'll be back and we'll be renting here again - if it's available.
