Incredible location! It would have to be a houseboat to be
closer to the water! Plenty of room. Well stocked with
cards and games.
Librado T. Jun 2021
Excellent view in a peaceful community. The home had all the amenities needed to enjoy time spent there. The view of the city lights as a backdrop for the ocean we truly amazing! Open floor plan which added greatly to our family enjoying our stay. We would definitely stay again and recommend to our friends and family.
Regine H. Jun 2021
House itself is a gem! The best part is the panoramic view of the ocean, we also love watching the night sky while lying in a hammock! Would love to go back;)
Lance C. May 2021
From the moment we pulled into the driveway, to taking in the view one last time, our family felt a sense of ease and wonder during our stay at this perfect vacation home. Every detail felt like an added benefit with a few highlights being the well-stocked kitchen, guest rooms with toys, modern bathrooms, and of course, an amazing array of ways to enjoy the natural surroundings. Our only complaint was having to leave (and the record player needing a needle). We plan on making this an annual trip and look forward to many more years at Home Port.
Anita R. Apr 2021
Beautiful view, felt like we had our own private art gallery with all the art displayed. Very relaxing.
Caitlin H. Jan 2021
This place was set up so well for kids, and we had an amazing time watching the seals and the freighters go by. The view is beautiful (as pictured) and we were pleased with the cleanliness.
Erin J. Nov 2020
Clearly from the photos of the property, you are paying for the water front and view, which are both lovely. The house however needs some serious cleaning and updating. The microwave, counters, floor, and coffee maker were all pretty dirty when we checked in and there was a very musty smell through the whole house. It very much felt like we were staying in someone elses house and not in a vacation rentral property. If this house got some updates to the furniture, the fixtures, and was thoroughly cleaned, it could be great!
Manager response:
Hi, Erin! We have done a deep clean at this home and checked all appliances. A new washer and dryer have been delivered to the home. Thank you!
Dany L. Sep 2020
Great house, the only issue was the water flow in the kitchen sink. Hard to wash the dishes. We only stayed 2 nights so didn’t think it was necessary to report it. Other than that it’s a great place.
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed the home, Dany! Thank you for letting us know about the water flow in the kitchen sink. The local staff has been made aware of this so that we are able to address the issues. We hope to host you again soon!
Beverly W. Sep 2020
The rooms are spread out and common areas are large so perfect for social distancing. Would have liked to have found tea or coffee, and basic hospitality items (sugar, salt, pepper, honey, creamer) in the kitchen but only filters were provided.
Julia T. Sep 2020
The back deck of this home is so wonderful! We really enjoyed the beautiful view of the water and the ample seating outside. The kitchen was really well stocked as well. The furniture inside was not as clean as we would have liked.
Tiffany S. Aug 2020
This house is in a beautiful location. It has amazing views of the puget sound. The deck and fire pit area were wonderful and my kids loved playing out there. It also needs maintenance overall for general upkeep like working lightbulbs in all fixtures, outdoor trash emptied before arrival, towel bars rehung as they kept falling off and an ant problem in the kitchen. We called about the lightbulbs the first day and there was a prompt response, however not all bulbs got replaced. Nonetheless we would stay there again.
Jill L. Aug 2020
The view from this home is gorgeous and we enjoyed sitting on the deck and the fire pit and relaxing in the living room with the big windows.

The home has pretty much everything you’d need. Could use some minor updates. The dishwasher could use some maintenance. And there’s a lot of personal family decor up that made it feel a little less like a guest house and more like you were in someone else’s space. But overall, it’s a comfortable home, easy to get to from Seattle, and was a relaxing getaway. Would stay again.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing to stay with Vacasa! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and are sorry the home didn't quite meet your expectations upon arrival. The dishwasher has been maintained so it is working well. We hope to see you again, Jill!
Katherine D. Aug 2020
Loved the stunning view of Puget Sound, the outdoor deck, BBQ and fire pit. The 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths were great for our party of 6 adults and baby. Spacious, one level home with awesome view inside and out of the main living and dining area.

The house is desperate for a deep cleaning and some very basic maintenance. The floors had a film on them that made them dangerously slippery. We spent 30 minutes wiping them down with our own disinfectant wipes. Appliances need repair (dishwasher, washing machine and second fridge), water pressure at sink is just a trickle, and please leave NEW cleaning supplies. There were used old sponges under the kitchen sink and 2 dishtowels for 7 people and 5 days with no way to wash them. We used bath towels. Those are basics and especially important during COVID.

With a day's investment in maintenance, a deep clean and a few items replaced and restocked this house we be a 5 star gem.
Manager response:
Katherine, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We apologize that the home was not in better condition for your stay. We do appreciate you bringing these items to our attention and I have made sure to pass these on to the local management and housekeeping so that they can be addressed. Please know this is not our standard grade of cleanliness and presentation. The comfort and satisfaction of our guests is our priority and the experience you had is certainly not commonplace. Vacasa does provide guests with starter packs of laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. If these items are not present on your arrival, we are happy to bring these items to you. Overall, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you bringing these matters to our attention and allowing us the opportunity to remedy the situation on your behalf. We hope you give us another chance to prove our exceptional service in the future!
Timothy B. Jul 2020
The home was clean and comfortable, but I spent most of my time out on the deck and playing on the water with my family. The fire pit kept us entertained during the evening hours. Definitely will be coming back to the spot.
Tatiana R. Jun 2020
I absolutely love this place, this is the second year in a row we spent time at this house. The view is something that you can’t describe with words, you have to see it for yourself. House itself is very spacious and comfortable, however for the second time being there we noticed house can use a deep cleaning. We are looking forward to coming back next time!
Sara B. May 2020
A lovely spacious get away. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the views from the deck and comfortable living room. Home owner provides all the amenities you could possibly want.
Martha M. Dec 2019
The home is nice and spacious with beautiful views of the sound. However, it was very dirty and not cleaned and ready for our stay. A sewer smell kept popping up in the guest suite which made it difficult to be comfortable in that room. The water pressure in the kitchen was at times non-existent but we learned just to be patient. Again, it is a nice home but it needs a major deep cleaning.
Manager response:
We apologize for any cleanliness issues you encountered during your visit. The island is working on the water pressure, and we have followed-up with housekeeping regarding the pet hair. We were unable to locate any unpleasant odors but have purchased air fresheners for guest use. Thank you for staying with us!
Duncan H. Nov 2019
Our family very much enjoyed our visit to Vashon Island. The house and grounds were wonderful with lots of room for the grandkids to play and the rest of us enjoy our time together. The location of the house on the water looking across the sound with all the sea birds and boats was fantastic. Halloween was certainly exciting for my grandkids at the downtown Vashon event. My wife enjoyed touring all the shops and we had a fun brewery tour. As the house is only a mile from the light house, it allowed for an enjoyable hike. Wonderful Visit
Megan Renae P. Sep 2019
Would definitely rent again. My family had an amazing time and loved seeing all the wildlife swim by!
Jimmy H. Sep 2019
Don’t miss walking down to the lighthouse for a magnificent view of Mt Rainier.
Anastasiya M. Sep 2019
Great location with direct access to water. Plenty of space for 3 couples and one single. We did some kayaking in town and paddle boarded around the house. House is a bit older, but functional. Kitchen has plenty pots/pans, and utensils, but things like knives were very old with dull blades so very hard and dangerous to use. Water pressure was quite weak, had to time showers, dishes, and laundry. But overall, would stay again.
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed the home and the access to water! Paddleboarding and kayaking are always fun activities to do at this home! We are sorry that you found the knives to be dull. We will mention this to our local property managers so they can be sharpened or replaced. We are also mentioning the water pressure to see if we can get that fixed as well. Thank you for your feedback, and we would love to host you again soon!
Alysia V. Aug 2019
Spectacular views, great outdoor seating area/decking with plenty of seats - including benches that stretch across the length of the house. Calm area of the island with very little car traffic and great little windy road to walk along. The ocean was our TV channel for our entire visit. Two fridges to chill your soda, beer, and bevvies; kitchen has all the equipment you'll need.
Angela S. Aug 2019
Great views, spacious layout, and beautiful décor. My family had a blast.
Kenneth G. Jul 2019
The home is very nicely appointed! Every imaginable kitchen device, utensil and pot or pan is there. There was more than enough towels and linen. Finally, the home is clean and perfectly located on the leeward side of the island with a beautiful view of the ocean and mainland.
Ann Marie A. Apr 2019
This home was PERFECT for a girls weekend! Would love to go back!
Peter S. Mar 2019
Amazing views literally right on the Sound. Would definitely stay again. Make sure to stop at the grocery store on the way in - there's not much on Maury Island - which was a benefit to us! Quiet and relaxing.
Carolyn K. Aug 2018
Loved the privacy of the deck and home overlooking a spectacular view of the sound a few feet from the deck.
The lovely property was in desperate need of weeding (knee high overgrowth). It had obviously not been cleaned under the beds/furniture in a very long time, the oven had burnt food chunks all over and had to be cleaned before we could use it, there was 1 dishwasher detergent pod for a 5 night stay, so had to go back to the grocery and purchase a bag or else wash dishes to use them, there was a quarter roll of paper towels, a light was burned out, a bathroom sink plugged up, a screen door torn, and the garbage cans were nearly full. The manager did phone me back the next day after I called Vacasa (being on hold for 15 minutes) but she said she was 2 and a half hours away and sounded frazzled, so I couldn't bear to make her come "fix" things because we could live with it and loved the place so much!
Manager response:
We did offer to bring this guest more supplies, but they declined. We have followed-up with our housekeeper about properly stocking and cleaning the home. Thank you!
Brian & Cindy S. Jul 2018
Lovely property but was not well stocked with cleaning products such as garbage bags, dish cloths, dishwasher soap, laundry soap etc.
Don J. Jun 2018
Kitchen is stocked for a Chef!!!! Bring back the weber grill.
Ashley T. Jun 2018
This home was so comfortable and relaxing. The eclectic, homey decor felt lived in and welcoming. The beach front property had everything our family our family needed... kids room, pack-and-play, toys, and lots of relaxation. Vashon Island is just a stones throw and a ferry to the big city but this secluded retreat also offers a place to kick back and watch the tide roll in. Our family enjoyed beach combing, visiting the lighthouse and exploring downtown Vashon. While much of the island is rural with beautiful farms and quaint cottages, there isn't a lack of things to do. But if relaxation is your goal...this is the place!
Liz V. May 2018
The place was great, with views to die for. I did move the rugs and my grandma and her cane kept getting caught on them. The place was well stocked with the amenities and the fire pit outside was great.
Susan C. May 2018
We saw a seal and an otter from our waterfront deck. An eagle flew over too.
Lisa B. Apr 2018
We simply loved this Vashon gem. We'll be back!
PEGGY B. Apr 2018
This beautiful large home is in a quiet neighborhood. All the amenities of home are awaiting your arrival. The accommodations are extremely comfortable and plentiful. This was an easy reservation process at a reasonable rate. An overall fantastic getaway.
Barbara B. Mar 2018
This house is fantastic and has a great view! Whether lounging inside or out on the expansive deck, it's the place to relax. Comfortable bedrooms, all the kitchen amenities you could want, and a variety of games and puzzles as well. The fenced "backyard" is a nice bonus if you bring along your dog.
Cindy B. Jan 2018
Loved the panoramic views of Puget and coastal areas. Nice home layout. Open floor plan and kitchen/dining area. Roomy bedrooms. Chairs in living room could use upgrade. Advertised as kid/dog friendly but night sensor lights were nonfunctional and gate wouldn't latch. No working fireplace was a disappointment as it looked so inviting. Otherwise nice property and comfortable accommodations.
Laura R. Jan 2018
Awesome place to relax and watch the seals swim by. Great place for kids (we had 3 kids - 4, 5, and 6 years old staying with us) with toys in the house and lots of rocks to throw in the water from the beach. Comfortable but disappointing that the hot tub and fireplace didn't work. Definitely NOT for someone with dander allergies since it's a dog friendly house, and you notice it.
Nou S. Jan 2018
We stayed here with another family of four and it was absolutely perfect for us. Our four girls (ages 10, 10, 12 and 12) enjoyed all of the games the house had to offer and the open space to play.
We adults loved the view and the space to spread out. The house is well appointed with everything you need to entertain for the holiday. We enjoyed a walk down to the nearby lighthouse and even spotted a bald eagle that landed on a nearby tree enjoying it's fish snack.

The house was the perfect setting for a relaxing time with good friends. We would highly recommend staying here and will be back!
Lynn S. Dec 2017
Nice spot right on the water with plenty of room
Kathryn C. Nov 2017
This was a fantastic and relaxing weekend getaway for our group. We could see seals swim by and greatly enjoyed the hot tub. We would definitely stay here again!
Meredith S. Nov 2017
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway. Any utensil or pan you could think of was in the kitchen. Having meals looking out at the water, followed by jacuzzi soaking nights were dreamy.
I would recommend to anyone.
Carol L. Oct 2017
This beautiful family home was the perfect location. We enjoyed kayaking, relaxing and playing games. The kitchen was well equipped with anything and everything we needed. The owner has wonderful decorating taste and we kept discovering beautiful little finds throughout the house. Vashon is a great place to shop, hike and kayak. We will be back.
Casey A. Oct 2017
This was the perfect location for two families traveling together with kids. We had separate spaces, but great common areas for hanging out together. The view can't be beat and the beds were very comfortable.
Karey R. Oct 2017
Great location. To relax and take in nature. Vashon is charming and has lots of day activities. The home was spacious and had many amenities. For families or friend groups, great spot. Good location and home is open to having pets.
Teresa B. Aug 2017
This was a lovely house , large front room with beautiful displays of art and sculptures . A fully stocked kitchen on top of the wonderful view of the sound. A great place to get away.
A little additional cleaning would make this a 5 star.
I will come back again.
Teresa B. Aug 2017
This is a lovely home with a spectacular view of the Puget Sound.
Elizabeth T. Jul 2017
The home is beautiful, comfortable and perfectly located. We had everything we needed for a long weekend. Was disappointed that we could not use the hot tub. Couldn't find chemicals or test strips anywhere. Called Vacasa for help, but got lost some where. Otherwise, the very best stay I've had in Seattle!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not receive our message left about their hot tub inquiries. The hot tub is in need of maintenance at this time and is no longer listed as an amenity. We apologize for any disappointments this may have caused.
Jonathan S. Jul 2017
This house is great for young families of 4. Three bedrooms are co-located so you can sleep near your little ones. Fourth bed is seperated from rest of house. Might be awkward for others but worked perfect for our au pair. Only problem was the hot tub was not working. A slight bummer in an otherwise perfect stay.
Jerry P. Jun 2017
This property was very well equipped from the kitchen to the bedrooms & also had tons of toys for the kids not to mention very pet friendly! Very clean house, very well kept.
Jessica K. Jun 2017
This place reminded me why we live in the northwest. Amazing views and right on the water. The beach was great for exploring!
Gregg G. May 2017
My family and another family, four adults and four young kids, stayed at Home Port over the long holiday weekend and had a blast. There were plenty of amenities on the property and lots to do nearby. We hope to have an opportunity to stay again soon!
Juha S. May 2017
We enjoyed the property tremendously and were positively surprised by all the toys & games available for kids. We had brought stuff for our kids, but ended up putting them back into the car as our kids loved playing with all the toys/games.

My and my wife would sit outside and enjoy listening to the waves in comfy chairs. The property was perfect for us with fully equipped kitchen to cook for the whole family. Definitely worth the trip and highly recommend!
