A classic waterfront home on Seattle’s one and only Vashon Island.

The space
Welcome to the quintessential island waterfront experience. Known as Governors Row, your week here will be a cherished memory as it has been since the 1960’s for the rest of family.

This is a creaky, well lived in cottage featuring hardwood floors and classic, retro finishes you can expect from a legacy beachhouse. It also happens to host a world class collection of artworks, artifacts and accessories with particular focus on Asian and Great Northwest Native American cultures.

We offer kayaks. However, waivers will be signed before these can be enjoyed.

Sure you can stay in downtown Seattle and have a great experience. But the extra hour getting on and off this island is the real Seattle experience indeed.

Other things to note
I apologize in advance. This is not going to be a fast hotelesque online booking request with limited information and spare introduction. This home is our pride and joy. Therefore careful vetting and arrangement will be made with no exceptions.

Guestcount is limited to two and it will be strictly enforced.

Appointment will be necessary for check-in. I will be meeting with you personally.

Traveler. Last of cafe society. Former music Industry marketer (Pink, Lauryn Hill, Britney Spears, Wu Tang, Arrested Development, Big Pun, etc. etc.) Former food/beverage FOH flack & micro investor (Ba Bar Seattle). @GeneDexter @VacationRenter A prolific Sharing Economy participant since 2009. My global team's viewpoint is simple - sharing affordable five star environments and/or personal experiences.. We happily share Seattle, Palm Desert, Las Vegas, Detroit, Lansing, Lake Chelan and Phuket/Thailand with you. My future homes will try to include Kauai, Vieques, Coastal Florida. And yes, I am always available to consult others as to the management and maintenance of your own homes. The schedule is ridiculous but whenever possible I am happy to sit down and talk, very occasionally opening a bottle of wine when we do. Mostly, I am on the run throughout the world. Independent and busy people understand me best. This is why there is so much written detail about my homes and how to happily stay in them. I prefer guests who are of the world and who know how to travel within it - maturely, efficiently, accurately, without alot of fuss or hand holding... 99.5% of my homes offer self service check-in. Text or call my team (each manager is noted in your house manual - itinerary) for questions or emergency needs, unless otherwise noted where I personally am available. We are always, always online! I’m Gene Dexter. You are invited in.
