MODERN HOME OVERLOOKING THE SEA - THE ABSOLUTE BEST VIEWS ON BAINBRIDGE ISLAND

Bainbridge Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 6 - 8 Sleeps

This luxury modern home is nestled in the upscale community of Rolling Bay on Bainbridge Island. This particular location, situated on a bluff overlooking the Sound, is noted by many locals as one of the most encompassing views of the Sea and Sound. The home lies along one of the local hiking paths featured in 'Walks on Bainbridge Island' where one can stop to take in the 'best views on the island'. The surrounding scenery from the front yard deck and living room floor to ceiling windows of the home opens to the expanse of the natural beauty of the surrounding blue sea. From any of the bedrooms or out on the slate deck, see ocean waves rolling in on the beach, the ships as they leisurely make their way across the Puget sound, or the twinkling lights of the Seattle skyline.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed

Journaling and reading are my favorite past times. I spent most of my youth in California, and later headed to the east coast to attend graduate school. I also spent some years living in the mid west, and grew to appreciate the different cultures within just our own country. Having lived in cities and towns from California, to Michigan, Iowa and Washington D.C. I find Bainbridge island living the most moderate paced. It is a sweet blend of Seattle city culture when you wish, alongside the privacy of country and small town living. A perfect inspirational setting for those aspiring storytellers.

Julie Shatzel purchased this house in 2012

This private community sits atop one of the higher elevations on the island. As far as the eye can see, there are ocean and city skyline views. The views are enhanced by the floor to ceiling windows that dominate the living room and master bedroom. Awaken to spectacular sunlight reflecting off the rippling ocean currents, and relax as you watch the lull of sailboats and natural ocean life that speckle the the expanse of the glassy sea.

This home is the perfect place for family gatherings, outdoor enthusiasts, or a couples getaway. It brings families together, puts us in awe of nature's beauty and calms the spirit. It is situated within walking distance of Rolling Bay Cafe, which serves sublime coffee and wonderful breakfast pastries. Pino's pasta is also within walking distance, you'll find daily fresh made pasta and sauces and meet Pino. There are a myriad of plants on the island that offer their wonderful variety of green foliage as the splendor of the plants and flowers nourished by the community residents.

WONDERFUL HOME WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week in this beautiful home on Bainbridge Island with my 2 children and my mother. The house is lovely and the views are truly breathtaking. The owner was wonderful, very kind and extremely accommodating. The house is lovely; very clean, spacious, bright and airy. The house is well stocked and we spent most days sitting in the garden enjoying the views, cooking or going for walks. Very convenient location too, a few minutes walk to some little shops. One of our best rental experiences to date!
Thank you to the owners!

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a corporate retreat. Everything was as described, the owner was responsive, the property manager was responsive (and brought us treats from a local bakery), the views were fantastic, and the house was well-stocked. Highly recommended, would stay there again.

THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
Many vacationers with young children will swear that Disney World is the Happiest Place on Earth, but let me assure you that Mickey and friends have nothing on this wonderful retreat on Bainbridge Island. My husband and our two kids were privileged enough to spend a week at this wonderful property. We had previously lived in Seattle for six years and returned for a long overdue visit to catch up with friends and relax. The house and its views are simply stunning. It's location is absolutely perfect--convenient to the many quaint little towns we had grown to love during our time in the Pacific NW--Poulsbo (don't miss JJ's Fish House), Port Gamble, Port Townsend, and Winslow (make sure you a crepe at Bainbridge Crepes--they are fabulous and the owner is super-sweet). Our son says the hot chocolate at the Rolling Bay Cafe is the best in Seattle and, trust me, he drank a lot of hot chocolate during his visit so he should know. We were a short jaunt from the ferry terminal and were able to ride the ferry to downtown and be tourists...and then return to our wonderfully quiet house to regroup as a family. Another not to be missed activity--The Bloedel Reserve, a short ten minute ride from the house. The spectacular gardens are simply amazing. The weather for our stay was a bit on the chilly side but the rain held off for the majority of our visit and we were treated to unbelievably beautiful views each day. The owner, Julie, is extremely accommodating and communicative; thank you, Julie! We can't wait to come back!

BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH STUNNING VIEWS.

  • 5 of 5
This was one of our favorite rental properties we have ever visited. We are a family of 5 with two adults and three children. We had plenty of room to spread out. The views are stunning yet the property is very private. The home is clean, updated and everything was in working order with a well equipped kitchen. This is a quick drive to the Seattle ferry or centrally located to hop over to Kingston or Poulsbo which has some cute shops and restaurants. We ate at the Loft in Poulsbo, delicious, and right on the Marina. The Tree House and Main Street Diner on Bainbridge were both great too. It's a quick walk down to the beach or a quick walk up the hill to a coffee shop and Italian take out restaurant. Overall, this is a great place for a peaceful respite yet you're not far from great amenities.

WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful - as nice as the pictures! We only stayed 2 nights, and rain was forecasted for both days, but we ended up with a surprising amount of sun, which just made it better. Would definitely stay again!

WORTH EVERY PENNY

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip as a family to the Bainbridge Island and it was fantastic! The island is so special...quaint and very welcoming. It offers many great attractions from hiking, biking, shopping and just sight seeing. The short ferry ride to Seattle is a plus! We have stayed in many property rentals from Hawaii, Santa Cruz and South Carolina and I must say this house ranks right at the top! The home is so relaxing with such a welcoming feel to it. It was very clean and spacious with top of the line decor, bedding & kitchen appliances. The grounds are beautiful and the views are spectacular! We loved walking down the street to the Bay Hay & Feed store, which was like walking back in time. It was so quaint and the people were lovely! Julie (the property owner) is very helpful and quite accommodating. You will not be disappointed with this property!
