This beach front home is available September 2018 through June of 2019 and comes partially furnished.
Looking south at the water from this three-bedroom, one and a half-bath home on Quartermaster Harbor, you can experience the grandeur and the tranquility that have made this island environment a favorite for decades. Located five miles from the southern end of Vashon Island and the ferry to Tacoma, and ten miles from the northern tip of the island and ferries to Seattle and the Kitsap Peninsula, the "Burton Beach" is a prime location for a relaxed, or active lifestyle.
The privately owned, long sand beach on a naturally protected harbor is just steps from the front door. It invites activities of all kinds, including beachcombing strolls and wildlife viewing. Daily Bald Eagle sightings will give you an awesome excuse to keep the TV off. Frequent seal sightings remind you that it is possible to have the convenience of modern living without loosing site of nature. Maybe a good book and a comfortable chair is more your style? Only a short walk is required to reach the village of Burton, where you can find groceries, a cozy B&B, an art gallery, a lavender farm, a mechanic, a coffee kiosk, and a post office. Need more? A five-mile drive north on the Island Highway brings you to the town of Vashon, with a full range of shopping and services.
The home features three bedrooms (1 king, one queen and one with twin bunkbeds) and a den. A large vaulted great room with cozy seating, fireplace, dining area and television/VCR is oriented toward the bay with abundant views. In fair weather, the deck provides a perfect waterfront vantage point for reading or conversation. The kitchen is separated from the great room's dining area by an eating bar. Kitchen appliances include a double oven range with built-in griddle for morning pancakes, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, and microwave. A washer and dryer are located in a utility room on the lower level of the house. Also on that level are the two secondary bedrooms and half bath.
Covered parking is available in the carport. There's enough room to store driftwood to keep the fire going all winter long as well.
The home also features a ductless mini-split heating and cooling system for optimal efficiency & comfort.
Utilities can be payed by the owner with an adjustment to the rental price. First, last & a damage deposit of 1 month rent are due upon signing.
This is a ten (10) month lease, but Zillow does not have that option. We use a screening service that serves as the application also. That cost is paid directly to the service. We ask for 1st, last, and a damage deposit.
At $2,700, this listing is priced $505 more than the current market rate for a 3 bedroom home in Vashon.
