Échanges avec les voyageurs
Guests can arrive at anytime after 3. We try to meet all of our guests,
but sometimes miss meeting since both our home and the guest
house are separate with separate entries and on different levels.
I do socialize with our guest who wish to.
Our street borders the bay and has bubbling creeks on either side. Surrounding our island is the beautiful Puget Sound Bay and Vantage Points can be found in a variety of places. We give our guests a list of our
favorite beaches in "Our Introduction Booklet " found inside our guest house. There are eagles flying overhead, an array of different kinds of
birds in the most beautiful of colors and songs (Blue Jays, Hummingbirds, Robin Red Breasts). There are deer, racoons, seals and we have seen orca whales swimming by once. There's also an array of international ships and national ships going by day and night. Seattle and Tacoma, Washington are just a short ferry ride away.
Every activity can be found to do such as canoeing, boating, hiking, biking, camping, swimming, tubing to water skiing. There is casual
dining to fine dining. There are an array of venues or shows to go to.
The island is child friendly, all one has to do is to go to the local park
or join a children's activity. Check the bullitan board out at Cafe Luna, "one" local coffee shop for happenings about town. The Red Bike and Snap Dragaon usually have some form of music playing throughout the week/month. The Red Rock Pizza has great ambiance. Or if you are in a rush, Saucy Sister's Pizza is quick. We also have Zombies (great for kids) and we have a local Subway. Our main store has a great hot food such as chicken, potato salad, fabulous soups, and a burrito that you can make your way. IGA grocery, open one hour later until 10 p.m. has a fast food pizza etc, right next store. So ..there are plenty of restuarants in town and those are in the literature inside the guest house. Or you can ask us.
Then we have 2 local Mexican Restuarants: La Playa at the northend ferry and Casa Bonita (our family's favorite with great prices. The portions are also large and meals can split). Every visitor needs to stop in at our famous trademark Hardware Restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food is great and fairly priced. The ambiance is unforgettable. We also have a Chinese food Restuarant and a Tai food Restuarant. Tell us
what you are in the mood for and we will refer you. Do remember our
Restuarants close up early during the week, except for Sportys. Also,
on the first Friday of the month all the stores are open and there is cheese, wine and other snacks put out for patrons. It's a really great
night of the month where Vashon steps out to socialize.
We provide local magazines, pamphlets, newspapers and literature
inside the guest house which advertises all of our restaurants in town.
The Vashon Island Chamber of Commerce Website is also a great site to find local food, activities and vacation ideas.
There is a beautiful view of Puget sound. You can see the ferry boat to the left, see the ships going by and sail boats, etc. Presently, the wild life are energized since Spring has arrived. We have eagles nearby, blue jays, red robins, woodpeckers, sea gulls, squirrels, and racoons, Morning and towards evening, the deer will come right into our yard.
Uber has arrived! We ARE TOO FAR A WALK FROM THE FERRY. We have a local bus, bike rentals, car rental, taxi, walking, passenger and regular ferry. There is a bike rental place in town has pretty turquoise bikes. The car rental place on the island is called, "Rick's Rentals" ($40 a day) , but again no rentals on Sunday, so you have to set this up ahead of arriving on Vashon Island. Text and ask me for the car rental number. My suggestion to our guests is to rent a car off island. You really want to have a car to see the spectacular sights. But if you are hiking person, the opposite may be true. You may want to rough it with walking to the main road which has public transit. It is a 45 minute walk from the main road to our guest house or to walk back to the main road. *Note: There is no public transit on Sundays.
* $10 pet fee for one night, $20 at max for 2 or more nights.
(Please make sure your dog has been recently shampood)

1 load of sheets or towels in the washer and start the dishwasher.
