The refinished wooden walls give it a warm, rustic, retreat atmosphere. You can enjoy the view from the inside of the house or comfortably sit on the west and north facing wrap around deck. The beautiful westward water view is relaxing and breathtaking. You may experience colorful sunsets, glistening calm or whitecap and windy stormy waters.

Best Vashon Island property
My kids asked me when we can come back if that tells you anything. They didn’t want to leave the property as they were having so much fun on the private beach. The property is so clean, absolutely gorgeous, and MaryAnn is so easy to communicate with. We will absolutely be back. I’m already thinking of more trips here with girlfriends and family friends as well. Thank you so much! It was such a great spring break for us!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful stay
We had a great time at the Driftwood. It was spotless and the house was stocked with amenities. We had a wonderful time and I hope to stay again sometime!

5/5 Excellent

This cottage on the beach is probably the nicest place I have ever stayed. Maryann and Warren were exceptionally gracious. They handled any questions or problems immediately. The entire place was spotless and everything was anticipated. I didn’t figure how to use the microwave. It might be a good idea to leave the manual on the kitchen counter. We invited two couples to visit and dine with us and they were overwhelmed at the cottage and the views. I took pictures almost every day. All I can say is thanks for the best part of my stay on Vashon Island

5/5 Excellent

Spotless, Relaxing, Ideal Getaway
Lovely location for a weekend getaway. Spotless - and I mean, truly spotless. By far the cleanest vacation rental I've ever stayed at, which is especially appreciated during the pandemic. Incredibly private due to the location - nothing but beach to the left and right, and water views from every spot in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Large lovely porch for enjoying the views even when it's raining. Comfortable beds. Closets and drawers in each room to unpack, and thoughtful details throughout (lavender sachets in drawers! tea, coffee, and hot chocolate in the kitchen!). Would definitely return.

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely perfect!
We had a wonderful time at the Driftwood beach house! The views and access to the beach are incredible and Mary Ann is an outstanding host. By far, the best vacation rental I have been to. She has thought of all the details and makes you feel right at home. I highly recommend and can’t wait to visit in the summer!
