waterfront beach studio home
About Allyson Ericksen
I am a long time islander and my family and I have been enjoying the beach house for over 65 years! My Partner and I truly enjoy sharing our happy place as a vacation rental with our quests. We love hearing the stories of the memories families make on the beach and adventures they have had while exploring Vashon.
Allyson Ericksen purchased this House in 1952

You can get out and enjoy all that Vashon has to offer or you can sit on the porch and watch the water gently roll by. I can get lost in the beauty that surrounds us here in this tiny paradise.

I'll be back!
The beach house was exactly as advertised and a pleasure to stay in for 5 days. Our daughter and her husband live just five minutes away, which was the main reason I selected the house initially. But now, I'll be staying there again not only for its proximity but for its peacefulness, cleanliness, comfortable bed, waterfront views and access to the beach. And it's only a 5-minute walk to a local grocery store and coffee stand, which really came in handy since I didn't want to rent a car. This beach house gets a 5- star rating from me!
Perfect for a long weekend
Even though I live a short ferry ride away, Vashon Island was like a different world. The beach house was perfect for my solo getaway. It had everything I needed. If you feel like cooking, the kitchen is fully stocked. If not, there are plenty of restaurants a short drive away.
The house is just as it looks in the photos. The furnishings were very comfortable, especially the bed. I would highly recommend this beach house for a single traveler, couple or small family.
I definitely want to return and explore more of what the island has to offer. I hope to stay here again when I do.
Great property on an absolutely beautiful location overlooking Quartermaster Bay.
Super easy and friendly!
I've stayed at the beach house a couple of times and absolutely love the location and accommodations. It's quaint, easy to get to, has a fire pit for smores, lots of beach toys, and a deck you don't want to leave. It was perfect for a small family.
What a place!
Very clean, had all amenities and more. Being in the water was exactly what we wanted. A little noisy due to close proximity to road but easily ignored by sound if water. Loved this house. So fun.
This is our first time in 4 years staying at a new place on Vashon (the previous place stopped renting out their property on VRBO) and I have to say it was a pretty amazing place to stay. It is very easy to find, it was super quiet, and everything was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed being so close to the water, by close I mean you walk down a few steps and you are in the water, the wife and I could sit on the deck and relax while our daughter played down on the beach and the water. There are plenty of seashells and sand dollars to find along the beach in the mornings while the tide is out. At night you can gather around the fire pit to roast marshmallows and watch the ocean. Everything you could need it really provided other than any groceries you may want. We went to the Farmer's market on Saturday to pick up fresh veggies and fruits then chopped across the street to the Thriftway to purchase some fish and steaks then we went back to the beach house to grill and eat our dinner outside. Overall this was an amazing trip!
The Beach House is located on the south end of Vashon Island, in the town of Burton. Our cozy little town has a small grocery store that can meet your basic needs and a great coffee shop within walking distance of the house. Eclectic shops and a post office are just down the road, as well as a place to rent kayaks and enjoy being out on the gentle waters of Quartermaster Harbor.
