We have been fans of Bainbridge Island for a very long time and when the opportunity to acquire this home arose, we couldn't resist. We have spent over three decades managing award winning hotels saw this house as a great chance to marry our professional experience with a love for the island.

Both of us are avid cyclists, sailors, and dog lovers which are just some of the many outdoor activities that you can enjoy on Bainbridge.

We hope you have the opportunity to stay with us and enjoy all that our location has to offer.

Pat McShane purchased this house in 2012

We fell in love with this house because of the stunning view of Seattle and Puget Sound from every room in the house. The other advantages are its low traffic south island location, great cycling, kayaking, diving and wonderful light filled rooms.

This is a great house for activities such as sipping coffee while watching the sun come up over Seattle and the cascades, sitting on the beach with a campfire or just walking the dog to Halls Hill Overlook.

For those wanting more physical activities the south island location is convenient to cycling over to Lynnwood for a morning pastry, jumping on one of the hiking trails close by or kayaking to Blakely harbor.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week at this Rockaway Beach home. Pat and Carla were great to work with, and their vacation home was even better than advertised. The home was clean, comfortable, attractive, and well-equipped with whatever you might need for your stay. The king bed was extremely comfortable, and we loved listening to the waves lap the shore as we fell asleep at night and awakened in the morning. We also enjoyed the gas fireplace downstairs on cool mornings and evenings. The view of the Sound and of Seattle and the Cascades (which is visable from almost anywhere on the property) is absolutely stunning, and the light and colors seem to be ever-changing. The home was a perfect base for us as we explored the region. Seattle is only a short and lovely ferry ride away. Our favorite finds in the city were the Chihuly Gardens and Glass exhibit at Seattle Center, Pike Place Market, and Ivars Seafood (very good fish and chips). Bainbridge Island is charming and lovely, and we are so glad we chose to stay there instead of in the city. Winslow and Lynwood Center have lots of fun shops and restaurants, and there are lots of parks, gardens and neighborhoods to explore throughout the island. The little community park just up the hill from the house is a jewell--so pretty and thoughtfully done! Treetops in Lynwood Center and Madison Diner in Winslow were good, casual places to eat, and Mora's Ice Cream in Winslow was awesome. If you enjoy history (as we do), the Japanese American Exclusion Memorial and the Bainbridge Island History Museum are interesting and well done. We also enjoyed a day trip to Port Townsend (about an hour away)--lots of fun shops and restaurants and some wonderful old Victorian homes and buildings. What we most enjoyed about the area is the beautiful outdoors that surround you wherever you go. Mt. Rainier is an awesome sight to see. Sunrises and sunsets over the Sound from the house are gorgeous. Olympic National Park is a treasure. Though it's a two-hour drive to get to entrance to the park in Port Angeles, our day on Hurricane Ridge was what we enjoyed most about our entire trip. Make sure you go on a clear day, but don't miss this stunning place. The drive up and down the ridge is full of natural wonders, and the wildlife and view from the top are amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our Washington vacation and our stay at the Rockaway Beach house was great. I highly recommend this vacation rental.

YES, PACK AND GO!

  • 5 of 5
With thanks for opening your beautiful home to strangers & appreciated good communication! Home tastefully decorated, tranquil, stocked nicely with all the extra's, indoor-outdoor living, plenty of room, quiet neighborhood and lots more! The pixs do not do the home or outdoor space justice. We loved the outdoor fireplace. Abundant animals in the sound & around us including eagles. Shells to collect. I've traveled internationally & domestically numerous times for business/pleasure and this trip to Bainbridge Island exceeded our expectations & by far, is one of my favorite places journeyed too.
Enjoy, its so' worth the time and effort ... try to stay 3 nights at least. Easy to take the ferry from Seattle. Loved the outdoor farmers markets. Besides exploring Winslow and all the cool shops and restaurants be sure to find Lynnwood Center, newly deleloped. Again, thanks for the opportunity to escape reality for a few days.

PEACEFUL, IDYLLIC HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay in this lovely home. The views are spectacular and the neighborhood incredibly quiet. The home has been decorated with such care. It's beautiful and very comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled beautifully. We love the special touches provided by the owners. We do plan on staying there again, I always come home so refreshed!

FAVORITE BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Rockaway Beach house is such a special place. The beach is absolutely beautiful with stunning views of the Seattle skyline from living room, kitchen, bedroom and spacious decks. I loved the short peaceful ferry ride into the heart of Seattle, with easy access to all the events, stores and restaurants that make Seattle a destination spot. The short picturesque drive from the ferry to Rockaway Beach house sets the stage for a wonderful retreat. The amenities are superb with luxurious linens and towels, a fully equipped kitchen, elegant decorating, and the comfort of outdoor living on Puget Sound.
I cannot wait to spend many more days at Rockaway Beach.

DELICIOUS VIEWS FROM EVERY WINDOW

  • 5 of 5
The Rockaway Beach home far surpassed my expectations. Not only was it comfortable and beautifully furnished with a 180 degree view of both Puget Sound and Seattle but it was also quiet. At night, we watched the city lights sparkle on and off as the fog rolled in and during the day, we watched porpoises, seals, otters and an array of wintering ducks in the bay right outside the front window. A short walk up the hill, we found a community park with exquisite landscaping, a sculpted prayer wheel, a covered swing from which to sit and watch the eagles and a labyrinth still in the process of being built. We will definitely return again and I have already recommended this place to several friends.

LAST MINUTE GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
What a relaxing couple of days we had at the Rockaway Beach house...instead of staying in Seattle we decided to branch out and stay on Bainbridge Island, which was a delight. Our view from the house looked directly across the sound at the city and the ferries passing by all day and night long. Pat was so accommodating, helping us with renting a kayak for my teenage son and making his trip! The house has been remodeled inside and has all the comforts of home and more. I would highly recommend staying here and we will definately be back!

Rockaway Beach Road is one of most sought after locations on the island because of its outstanding views and quiet south island location. The south end of the island is the quieter location and does not have the traffic of 305 to contend with.
