Our arrival on Vashon was the culmination of a search throughout the western United States for an ideal. My wife and I were looking for a relaxed, safe, and community oriented place. We found great schools for our children, and are thrilled to be surrounded by nature at home on the island. The opportunity to appreciate all the benefits of access to a major urban center, Seattle, is realized in a short but spectacular 22 minute ferry crossing.
From forests and farm stands, to hiking and walks on the beach, Vashon/Maury Island is a great place to land if you seek clean air, quiet days and nights, and a friendly atmosphere. Time spent here is an opportunity for reflection and gratitude.
