Rockaway Beach is one of the most exclusive locations on Bainbridge Island. Known for its amazing water front views of the “Emerald City.” This custom built, adult oriented home has more than 5,000 square feet for you to enjoy. The large open floor plan was custom built to maximize the water and city views. Observe whales, seals, sea otters, bald eagles, geese, deer and many other birds and animals. Explore the beach and tide pools to see firsthand why Jacques Cousteau called the Puget Sound the most marine rich body of water in the world. Fish for Coho salmon, Chinook salmon, Sockeye salmon and Dungeness crab from the beach (when in season of course). And if all that sounds like too much work then, you can just relax on the deck and take in the view.
A scenic 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island has rustic charm with quiet country roads and lovely gardens making this a favorite destination. Known for its arts community, Bainbridge has its own Performing Arts Center and Arts & Crafts Gallery featuring regional artists. Enjoy shopping in historic Winslow with its trendy cafes and one of a kind island shops where you can find unusual gifts from the Northwest and beyond. Outdoor enthusiast will enjoy a walk through the Bloedel Reserve, and nature lover's paradise. Other fun outdoor activities include hiking, biking, equestrian trails, golf and tennis. From Bainbridge Island you can cross the Agate Pass Bridge to the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula.
Getting to Rockaway Beach is half the fun. About half way across the Sound, the ferry will turn towards Eagle Harbor. Look for the home with the white fence five houses down from the left. This is where you will be staying. At the end of the scenic drive around Eagle Harbor the road becomes Rockaway Beach the Emerald City will take your breath away. Fight the urge to stop because this is the view waiting for you at The Beach House. As you drive down the tree lined street of Rockaway Beach you will discover why the street is so well known on Bainbridge Island. Drive slowly, look at the amazing properties on the street and keep an eye out for the local residence like deer, raccoons, fox and humans. You are almost home.

I have been a real estate broker for more than twenty five years. Rarely do I come across a property as incredible as this one. We knew this was the home for us the moment we open the front door and saw the Seattle skyline. This property is our second home and it is not your typical rental. With that being said, this property is not for everyone. We thoroughly screen our guests to maintain our pride of ownership and to assure our guests the best experience possible.
David Clemson purchased this house in 2006
There is no other place like The Beach House. Read the reviews to understand its magic from the perspective of the guests who have lived here. If you are a neat freak then this is the place for you.
When you are sitting in the living room taking in the view, it feels like you are on a boat looking out at the water.
It is a beautiful home, maintained with exquisite care. The house was spotlessly clean, fully stocked, with much attention to detail. Of course, the best part is the view -- it is expansive, varied, it changes by the minute, it is different depending on the weather, you could really spend an entire vacation in the yard or living room just looking at the view, and not be bored. David the owner is great, very nice, professional, responsive. The island itself is very interesting, and well-located to get to the Olympic Peninsula --- it is only 75 minutes to the top of Hurricane Ridge. All in all this is a wonderful place and we can't wait to go back.
My husband and I stayed there June 19th, through June 25th, 2014. When you first walk into the house, you can't help but just stop in your tracks and stare at the most gorgeous view of Seattle! Then your sights turn to the house itself, and it is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever been in. It is decorated so professionally ~ I was taking pictures with my iphone of all the special touches throughout, to get ideas for my own home! The home and outside landscaping is immaculate! It seemed like we were the first ones to ever stay there! The owner could not have been more helpful! He was so pleasant to talk with and very accessible if you had questions about anything. He sent me a manual before we left, which I printed out and took with us, not only telling things about the house that we should know about, but things to do on Bainbridge, recommended restaurants, etc. He was most thorough!
I would definitely recommend this property and we hope to stay again!
We rented this house for my husbands 50th Birthday. This house was perfect and has a beautiful view. I highly recommend this place.
We have traveled and stayed all over the world and have very high standards. This house does not disappoint! It is beautifully furnished and decorated with an elegant yet comfortable feel. It has all of the comforts of home and then some. My husband had to work and there is a very nice office/sitting area on the first floor, so he had a cozy spot to set up his laptop and work. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want, although I don't cook on vacation!The owner had great recommendations for restaurants and other things to do, which was very helpful. You can walk right out the back door onto a beautiful deck, nice big yard with great views of Seattle and a wonderful beach to walk. The basement is great fun with the pool table, ping pong table and the Atari games. My kids and I had a blast! Overall, this was a wonderful property, very clean, fabulous amenities, great location and we look forward to our next visit.
The online description doesn't prepare you well enough for how fabulous the views are from the property!!!
The house is very well maintained and luxurious in every way. We enjoyed Fresh Oysters from the property.... Amazing!
The trip into Bainbridge and also across to Seattle is charming and not at all difficult.
The owner is just how I would prefer... helpful, full of information and support but respectful of privacy.
The Beach House is truly amazing! We had the best vacation ever. We had a blast playing PAC Man on your video arcade & playing pool, ping pong & darts! The owners have thought of everything, right down to the comfy sheets & luxurious towels. Of course the views of Seattle are unbelievable, it was such a treat to watch the candles come on every night, creating a warm & romantic ambience. David, all of your recommendations for dining, shopping & things to do were spot on. I can't thank you enough for taking our calls & communicating as much as you did with us. It was a personal touch that we have never experienced before. Thank you.
