vacation rental description

Discover island lifestyle in this artistically renovated, contemporary farmhouse property. Convenient mid-isle location, and only 3 miles from Vashon town center. A five minute walk reaches a rare wetland tidal salt marsh that opens onto to KVI beach, one of Vashon's best sandy beaches (about 1 mile in length). Birders will enjoy the wide variety of both migrating and 'local island' fowl who live in this water system. From the home, expect sunrise views and soaring bald eagles and red-tailed hawks over the expansive views of Puget Sound from any of the 3 east-facing decks. Take advantage of the large covered front porch in case of rain. The half-acre gardens have been enthusiastically landscaped to reflect a variety of outdoor 'rooms.'

Two en-suite bedrooms occupy the second floor -- the large master suite offers a vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan, king sized bed, large 4 piece bath with shower and soaker tub. Both rooms in the master suite offer views of Puget Sound. The second west-facing bedroom offers queen bed, private bath with shower. Main floor features an open entertaining area: kitchen, dining and family room. A large deck opens off the dining room. Smaller deck with propane BBQ opens off the lounge. Contemporary kitchen is updated with high end appliances and gas cook top. First floor also offers a separate library/media room which includes a large window seat and wood fireplace. Powder room and laundry room are also conveniently located on the first floor. A separate studio/guest room with private entrance includes a double-sized window seat/bed. The space can accommodate a personal practice for yoga, pilates or dance, or just a quiet 'away' space for reading or meditating. Includes powder room with toilet and sink. Most of the artistic architectural features of the house are from the hands of local Vashon artists. This special home offers both a quiet retreat and a central place to explore Vashon Island and Puget Sound.

traveler reviews for this vashon island house rental

A wonderful week in a NW paradise!

Review submitted: July 16, 2014   Date of arrival: July 11, 2014

This house is just wonderful. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful and hot week on Vashon in a house which exceeded all of our expectations. It is spotlessly clean, sunny, bright and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and everything is brand new or perfectly vintage. Easy access to everything Vashon has to offer.

I highly recommend this house to fellow Pirate Camp-ers, Seattle vacationers and everyone else. You will be so happy to land here.

Owners response: Thanks, Helen! I'm so glad you had a great stay.

Like a private resort

Review submitted: July 15, 2014   Date of arrival: June 18, 2014

We found Tramp Harbour House to be a wonderful vacation spot for myself, my husband, our two grown daughters, and the oldest boyfriend. My younger daughter slept in the separate yoga studio where a woodpecker visited her one morning!

The kitchen, living room and dining room were comfortable and we used them well. The kitchen is well-stocked and we were able to use the fresh produce from local farm stands to real advantage. We made some use of the media room, but the owners dogs clearly use that room alot so my husband, who is very allergic, wasn't able to use it. The rest of the house was fine, and the owners have an extensive video collection.

I really enjoyed having my breakfast outside on the back deck. The view was wonderful and peaceful. The landscaping was special as well.

The master bedroom was high end and the large bathroom was spa-like. I really enjoyed soaking in the tub after a long day. The bed was very comfortable.

The area had lots to offer: the kids went kayaking every day; we toured the farmstands; went on a local garden tour (which was fantastic), and went shopping in downtown Seattle one day. Getting on and off the island was less of an issue than we had expected.

Cindy was very communicative throughout our stay and even offered to mail back the kayak lock we had left wrapped around a tree in the front yard.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place for a family looking to spend some time together.

Owners response: So glad the property worked for your family! It's important for all guests to note that this home is dog friendly (when we visit, we bring our two hypo-allergenic pooches), but is professionally cleaned after every stay.

Thanks for taking the time to write.
Cindy
