The space

Room "J" has a queen bed a view over Quartermaster Harbor. There are 4 other rooms available.

On the waterfront of outer quartermaster harbor, and built before there were roads on the island Marjesira was once an inn, general store, post office, and one of the Mosquito Fleet steamship stops. Now its main access is a short shell strewn trail past the garden, and a flight of 63 stairs (please take note of this if stairs are a challenge for you). To come down the trail, stairs, and walk through the doors of Marjesira, is to step back in time. Over a hundred years old, it maintains a charm and rustic elegance in a craftsman style. You will see the remnants of a time before; fixtures from the gas settling lamps still adorn the walls. Its east facing covered porch is a favorite place to watch the birds, otters, or the early morning sunlight dancing on the water. The top of Mt Rainer peeks up over Maury island on the other side of the harbor.
There are two rooms available with Queen beds, The two bathrooms are shared by the quests (one has a large claw-foot tub, the other a shower.) A well equipped kitchen and extra refrigerators are available for guests to use. Other common spaces: the Great Room has a large table that extends for many, and a sitting area with rockers for all.... the parlor has an extensive library, a piano, many musical instruments, and a wood stove to cozy up around when the temperature is cooler. There is a wrap around porch with lots of seating, a hammock, and views. Decks off of the kitchen and the upstairs, and a dock out front, offer more lounging space. Miles of beach are just out the front door when tides allow.
Located about a mile south of Burton, 4 miles North of the Talequah Ferry, 5 miles south of Vashon town, 10 miles South of the North end ferry to Fauntleroy and Southworth, Marjesira is on the 118 bus line. You could come stay down on Magnolia beach the whole time, or use Marjesira as a base to explore the Island, Tacoma, Seattle, or the extended beauty of the Pacific Northwest mountains and waterways. It is a great place for pre / post hiking ,biking, or kayaking adventures.
All five rooms can be rented for a week at a time, which is great for family and groups. Alternatively, individual rooms are rented for one night to a month. The hostess , her dog and outdoor cat live on the premises.

Jacqui’s home was cozy, warm, and inviting. While we only stayed one night, it was an overall good experience. We had a good nights sleep and woke up to a beautiful, sunny day and enjoyed our coffee on the beach before departing. It’s a charming location and we thoroughly enjoyed…

Nice, quiet getaway with very pleasant and helpful long-term houseguests. Nice kitchen with space for cooking. Good way to meet some people and get out of town!

We love the Marjisera. Always cool. Always quiet. Always clean and comfortable. Great waking up to ducks, egrets and the lapping of the waves.
