Indianola House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

Discover the BEST sandy beach on Puget Sound! Enjoy an unobstructed, breathtaking view of Seattle, Bainbridge Island, and Mount Rainier from atop a south facing bluff.

Plan your day as the morning tide rolls gently in and out of the bay. Smell the salt air and indulge in the sounds of a beach awakening. Watch as bald eagles soar in clear sight, and herons search for their perfect morning catch. Otters play, dogs fetch and people stroll. Welcome the fresh evening air, as the lights of the Seattle skyline decorate the night sky.

This rural residential area, is just south of Kingston on the part of Puget Sound called Port Madison. It was originally established (in 1916) as a summer community for Seattleites. The Indianola dock, built when the Mosquito Fleet boats supplied the majority of transportation on Puget Sound, was easy access for weekending families. Now this local landmark has been converted for recreational use (shortened to 870 feet), and the center of on-going local activity.


Conveniently located just one hour from downtown Seattle. TAKE THE 30 MINUTE (BAINBRIDGE) FERRY FROM DOWNTOWN SEATTLE AND ANOTHER SHORT 25 MINUTE DRIVE TO PARADISE. JUST MINUTES to Suquamish, Poulsbo, Kingston, Bainbridge Island. You can also take the Edmonds to Kingston Ferry (10 minutes away), or drive around via the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. We're just 7 miles from the popular Clearwater Casino.

Public beach access is adjacent to the property, or if you prefer,down a winding trail directly from the patio.

Bring your own boat and launch it at the public boat ramp (just a few blocks away), or in Suquamish (just a 7 minute drive), and moor it out front on our buoy! Starting in May and through the end of October, we provide a dinghy and 4 (single person) kayaks for your use as well! Yay - fun!

The Indianola Country Store is a must-see stop! It houses a wonderful deli, an accumulation of goodies from local artisans and farmers, Indianola souvenirs, as well as basic staples for a short-term stay. The owner (Rob) will most probably remember your name when you come back! The beach house is a quick 2 minute walk to the store, post office, and community center.

All linens, cooking utensils, full-size appliances, four flat panel TV's with free cable channels, DVD player, WiFi for your portable laptop, gas fireplace, outside gas grill, fire-pit (wood provided) etc. are available to YOU for the perfect Puget Sound experience!!

First level: Entry, custom 3/4 bath with walk-in shower, laundry room with full size washer/dryer, a 'great room' style living area with a gas fireplace, a gourmet kitchen which includes two ovens, full size stainless appliances, maple cabinets, granite counters and a huge center island. The living area spills off to a large 1500 square foot deck/patio area with gas grill, ample seating and firepit...overlooking a breathtaking Puget Sound waterfront view!

Second level: Living/dining area with a sleeper-sofa for two, and another deck with patio seating as well. Down the hall you will find a 'king' bedroom with it's own walk-in closet. Across the hallway is private 'bunk room' (full/twin) that sleeps three more. One full bath.

Third level: Sitting area adjacent to a 'queen' bedroom with walk-in closet...looking out to another spacious, view deck. A separate private (den) can be reached by walking through the bedroom. There you'll find a full-size futon and day bed for more sleeping options! One full bath.

THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN IN OUR FAMILY FOR OVER 90 YEARS, but the house is all new - we'd love to share the view with you!

Keywords: waterfront home, sound view home, luxury view home, luxury rental, mt. rainier view home, south facing, Seattle view, sandy beach, beachfront home, new, PEACEFUL ESCAPE!

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you're looking for a waterfront vacation place not too far from Seattle (but far enough), this is it. The home is located in tiny Indianola and sits on the edge of a bluff which overlooks Bainbridge and Seattle. There are public access stairs to the beach on the east side of the home on the other side of the fence. The home itself is fantastic...three floors, each with a deck. It's brand new, and furnished with everything you would possibly need. Another thing I liked is although you have neighbors, they aren't right on top of you and house is situated so that it's very private. It's about 12 minutes from the Kingston ferry, and 25-30 minutes to the Bainbridge ferry. The owners were great to deal with, and I'm definitely coming back here. Just do your grocery shopping in Kingston or Poulsbo before you arrive, and you'll never need or want to leave. The Indianola Country Store is a three to five minute walk in case you forget something. Great made to order sandwiches!

My family and I (including our little dog) truly enjoyed this home! It was beautiful, relaxing and comfortable. And the views cannot be beat--they look good online, but are insane in person! The owners were lovely, and very helpful. I highly recommend this stunning home!

If there were a poster child for how to run a vacation home rental these owners should write the book!! This beautiful home was so clean! Everything you could possible need in a home was here, even down to tongs to roast marshmallows on, while sitting a a fire pit stocked with logs, EVEN had special fireproof firepit blankets!!! This house made our vacation so much better than I could of imagined!

Owner's Response: Oh ...thank you! What would a beach rental be without a fire-pit and everything one would need to make s'mores, right?! So glad you enjoyed your stay. :)

What a great place

  • 5 of 5

The views are spectacular, the house so well equipped. My wife's parents joined us and constantly remarked about how all they needed was their clothes. We spent each night at the fire-pit making s'mores, telling jokes and enjoying the beauty. None of that would have been possible without the attention to detail that came with the house; from the barbecue to the fire pit blankets, to the kayak so my granddaughter and I could go out on the sound. It is a wonderful property with everything you need-just bring your clothes. Can't wait to go back for more!!!!

Indianola Beach House Exceeds All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our family, rented the beach house for a week during our son's wedding. We saw the pictures online and followed the recommendations of our son and rented the house. When we arrived and walked through the door we were pleasantly surprised, as the house exceeded our expectations! Every room was beautifully decorated and the kitchen fully stocked with everything needed for your stay. In spite of the wedding events we found time to walk on the beach during low tide, play in the water, and enjoy the view! We watched the tide go in and out, caught a few sunsets, gazed at the stars, and watched the steady stream of airplanes come in to SeaTac at night. On our last night we built a bon fire, roasted marshmallows to make s'mores, and launched lanterns across the Sound. Memories were made that will last a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Amazing Views at the Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second stay at this amazing house. The fantastic five became the sensational six as we had another friend join us this year. We have all been friends for over 40 years. The beach house is everything you could dream of for a long weekend get away. The owners are so thoughtful, they have thought of everything you could need or want while on vacation. The house is super clean and decorated so cute. To be honest if the weather is nice you won't spend much time in the house, other than sleeping we spent 90 percent of our time on the deck. We walked for hours on the beach, found an area on the beach with thousands of sand dollars, it was pretty amazing. We went to the Kingston Market which I would recommend, there was a band playing and lots of goodies for sale. Other than the market we never wanted to leave the beach house. I would recommend the beach house to anyone. We have already made reservations for next year and plan to go back every year for our girls weekend. I recommend staying 3 nights, 2 nights is not enough!!!!

Owner's Response: Ahhh thank you!! Agreed, the deck is absolutely everyone's favorite place at the beach house! I have an album on our Facebook page titled "the ever changing view"... just because!


Swim, sail, water-ski, kayak, explore and play off one of the best beaches in the State. In season, you can fish, crab, dig for clams, or just do nothing at all! One of the more interesting things in town is the annual summer festival 'Indianola Days', complete with fun run, amateur sand castle building, salmon bake, occasional talent show, and pet parade!
