Description of the Vashon Island vacation home rental
Escape to the Island on a serene ferry ride less than 15 miles from Seattle (Fountleroy), Tacoma (Pt. Defiance), or Southworth terminals to Vashon Island, the Nantucket of the West Coast, where another world awaits you - a place for relaxation, entertainment, friendly people and nature.

Discover Summerhurst Retreat, a 3,000 sq. ft. custom-built Lindal cedar luxury entertainment home with beautiful and expansive views of Puget Sound (ocean), the Cascades (mountains), alongside modern design custom amenities! SR is a new rental listing as of 2015, and we pride ourselves in cleanliness, quality, modern spa-like design, and entertainment. We've personally stayed in many vacation homes, and researched what would make an exceptional rental home.

HOLIDAY SPECIAL: From Thanksgiving through December, Summerhurst Retreat will have "A White, Silver and Gold Holiday" display so you can have hassle-free, stylish celebrations with your friends and family. Enjoy the 10' tall tree, secular ornaments and decorations, lit garland and mantel with 6 stockings to stuff! Enjoy the festivities, relax around the fire, drink hot chocolate and savor the memories.

The home is spacious with 3 floors, 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with vaulted ceilings and classic North-West architecture. The central feature in the home is a 22-foot soaring cathedral ceiling encompassing the main room and upstairs loft. Unwind in the master bedroom (king bed) with a spa-like, modern bathroom (2 sinks, a 2-person shower and indulgent soaker tub) with warming towel bars. Relax in the comfortable guest bedroom (queen bed) and have the kids in the loft (4 twin beds), each room with its own en suite bathroom. Downstairs, there is an office with desk, computer, printer and twin bed. All beds have comfortable memory foam mattresses, with high-thread count cotton linens and high-quality towels throughout. The house comfortably sleeps 9, however, we can accommodate up to 12 (with high-quality SoundAsleep Dream Series air beds - 2 queen and 2 twin). A serene color palette of white walls, fir and maple wood, exposed wood beams, and black slate tile will remind you of relaxation in a high-end massage studio.

The ground floor has the garage, the main foyer entrance, a small office / bedroom, a powder bathroom (.5), the guest bedroom, and the guest bathroom w/ shower tub. The second floor has the kitchen, dining area, living area, main room, master bedroom, master bath, and wrap around deck. The third floor has a loft bedroom and bath.

Kitchen and Dining: Prepare gourmet meals for a group and host your events in our modern, well-equipped, and spacious gourmet kitchen and dining areas (serves 12). It truly is a chef's delight! The kitchen has four large workstations, quartz surfaces, quality cooking accessories and loads of brand new stainless steel appliances (Subzero refrigerator/freezer w/ ice, Subzero 100+ bottle wine fridge, Dacor electric double ovens, microwave and warming drawer, Miele 5-burner induction range with exceptional hood and a roomy Miele dishwasher). Enjoy the oversized farm house style sink with industrial faucet sprayer, restaurant-style open shelving look, and all the necessary table-top accessories and appliances. We've spared no luxury, from including a professional Kitchen-Aid stand mixer to Reed and Barton silverware for a modern, elegant table setting. We have a 2-burner propane BBQ. The formal Saarinen marble table seats 6, a kitchen banquette table seats 4, a small table can sit 2-3, and the huge island has 4 tall bar stools. Enjoy the food and the view as your guests will be impressed and well catered in this restaurant-like dining experience.

Entertainment features: The property has loads of entertainment features, including: a brand new 6-person premium Sundance hot tub overlooking Puget sound, a large deck with chairs, an indoor gas fireplace, an outdoor wood burning fireplace and seating area, wireless Dish satellite internet (Wi-Fi), two 32-inch flat screen TVs, one 50" flat screen TV with Nintendo Wii system (4 controllers and lots of games), 200+ channels (Dish), board games and cards, a bocce ball court, horse shoes, a dart board, a thorough collection of books for your reading enjoyment. For those who enjoy gardening or taking walks, take in the Japanese-inspired gardens with maple, pine and magnolia trees, flowering shrubs and plants. Enjoy the fireplace by the trees and share drinks and stories with friends. Inside or outdoors, there is plenty of room for entertaining or just relaxing and getting away from it all.

Whether you want to sleep or find a chair and relax, you can find seating in the main room (accommodates up to 12) or enjoy the fireplace, Noguchi table, leather sofa seating and reclining Ekornes stress-less reclining chairs with ottomans. Accent chairs are conveniently located throughout the home, deck and outdoor fireplace area to pull together people for enjoyable conversations.

Enjoy the divine heated floor tiles in the kitchen, dining room, and master bathroom. The home is filled with hardwood and slate tile flooring, vaulted ceilings, skylights, wood doors and moldings, and well-appointed, complete furnishings throughout. We decorated the home to have a peaceful, inviting, low-allergen, Zen-like retreat setting.

Lots of sun and light: Enjoy the amazing views of the Puget Sound and feel the warmth of the sunlight (South East facing) from the expansive 2-story cathedral main room, the many windows and skylights in the dining area, foyer, and bedrooms. Use the amazing loft for a yoga retreat or meditation space overlooking the ocean as you watch the sunrise each morning. We have upgraded the home to dimmable soft-white LED lighting, so you will surely find the ambiance relaxing as you can set a custom mood.

The home is on 0.75 acres in a quiet, private area of Vashon, so you will have restful experiences here. Bald eagles, deer, and many small songbirds make the outdoor space here peaceful and serene, as you enjoy watching the ships and sailboats pass through the shipping lane. This is a great chance to limit your use of technology and enjoy the time with your family, friends, a yummy home-cooked meal, or a good book. This home was designed to be a welcoming oasis, for those wanting the complete designer-home experience, so pick up some delicious gourmet groceries from Vashon Thriftway or your fresh fruit and vegetables from the Saturday Farmer Market, and come stay for a while!

For those wishing to escape the city, there is nothing better than Vashon. Since it is only traveled by ferry, it has a truly island experience with a friendly local culture. It definitely has a small-town community spirit. The island of Vashon is just 15 minutes ferry ride away from major cities, but feels like you are on a relaxing island getaway. It offers a gourmet grocery with excellent wine offerings, specialty shops, bookstores, fine restaurants, art galleries, bakeries, a movie theater and more. Please strike up a conversation with the locals as many people are sociable here.

Adventures: If you are into cycling, Vashon is a great getaway to log in miles of road-based wilderness or coastline. If you enjoy watersports, you can paddle around the island (Kayak rentals available at store) or enjoy fishing or crabbing on the pier. There are many hikes to enjoy and many birds and animals to see. Several accessible beaches are within driving distance. The best sand beach (KVI beach) that has parking is about a 12 minute drive. Take a day trip to downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park and Mount Saint Helens, or the many museums in the general region. The home guide contains many activities to do, so simply bring some clothing layers and appropriate shoes and you should find many activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Wildlife: Abundant wildlife, including small birds, hawks, bald eagles, deer, raccoons and the friendly neighborhood dogs visit the property and area. You truly feel like you are retreating in nature. If you are a gardener, you will enjoy almost year-round flowers from the property.

It is time to unwind, pamper yourself, reconnect with nature and each other and truly experience what a vacation should be. You deserve to have a relaxing, breathtaking, and luxurious vacation rental experience, and so we hope that you book with us!
