LOVELY BEACH HOME ON BAINBRIDGE ISLAND'S INCOMPARABLE PT. MONROE

Bainbridge Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Welcome to June's Place- a sunny beach home with a soul located on the exquisite and tranquil Pt. Monroe. Discover the front beach footsteps away from your door or relax on the spectacular natural Ipe wood back deck on the lagoon. Tastefully appointed interior incorporating a blend of contemporary and 100 year-old antique furnishings. High-quality, well-maintained home with natural bamboo flooring throughout. The main living area with views to the beach surrounds a natural wood burning stove for warm conversation. Relax in the sitting room with a good book, watch a movie or the wildlife in the lagoon. Create a meal in the fully equipped kitchen and dine on the back deck over the lagoon or inside at the hand-carved antique dining table with views to the front beach. Enjoy a beach fire or have a picnic! Play a game of croquet or savor a stroll along the beach. Slow down, experience the exquisite surroundings, rich wildlife and changing of the tides

Birdwatching: For those of you who are birdwatchers, you will be thrilled with what you might “spot” during your visit. The autumn, winter, and spring months bring extraordinary, migratory visitors to both the salt water estuary, and deep waters of Agate Pass. Amongst the confirmed spots: Black Oystercatcher, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Harlequin Duck, Long Tailed Duck, Surf Scoter, Common and Barrow’s Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Red Breasted Merganser, Double Crested Cormorant, Pigeon Guillemot, American Wigeon, Common Murre, Horned Grebe, Western Grebe, Surfbird, Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Black Turnstone, Sanderling, Western Sandpiper. During the summer months, the resident Great Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, and Mallard Ducks will entertain you down by the water. Just take a short walk to nearby Fay Bainbridge State Park, and listen to and look at the trees. Early morning and just before sunset are the best times for woodland birding.

Beachcombing: Test your beachcombing skills to find sand, seashells, stones and driftwood, along with gems of green, blue, red and orange sea glass. For the discerning comber, look for the agates, mostly orange, with the sun to their back, on the lowest of tides, right at the line between the large rocks, and the sand...

Misc. fun: Have you ever tried beach crocquet?....

My property was purchased by my late parents in the 70's, originally a small cabin which was totally rebuilt in 1992 to become a year-round home for my mother, June. I have many fabulous memories of spending glorious summers here as a child and still to this day it is a place that warms my heart and soothes the soul.

My nephew married a young lady from Bainbridge Island. We were there for the festivities and stayed for a week to enjoy the area. June's Place was a highlight of our trip...such a unique and beautiful setting. Leslie, the owner, has thought of everything and then some! We were four adults, but we still made s'mores over campfires on our private beach. I loved sitting on the lagoon-side deck for reading and, during low tide, watching the sea gulls pick up clams and drop them on the roof next door to crack them open. We hiked and biked and won $450 at the casino! Our favorite spot for walking was the Bloedel Reserve. I would love to visit Bainbridge Island again and would definitely book June's Place for my stay.

Magical Journey at June's Place

Peaceful, tranquil, joyful, rejuvenating – all gifts that await you at June’s Place, a magical beach house at the northern tip of Bainbridge Island. The heart of this home is Leslie, a most fabulous host. Quick to respond, she supplied us with a thorough list of recommendations for things to do and places to see during our stay. June’s Place is perfect for just about everyone. The elegant and cozy front living room is extremely comfortable with a view of the Sound through windows which run the length of the house. In fact, there are views from every single window, upstairs and down, at June’s. The sea and the beach are literally outside the front door. Listen to classical music or jazz in the evening while watching the glow of the wood stove, or enjoy the sitting room in the back of the house, which overlooks the lagoon. This room is perfect for watching a movie or reading quietly while others enjoy the front room. The kitchen has everything you’ll need. It was so well-equipped and inviting that we cooked dinner at the house most evenings, instead of dining out. Hard to believe we’d skip that pleasure, but a nice piece of salmon and the view were too hard to pass up. The upstairs bedrooms are beautifully appointed and spacious, and the soaking tub in the master bath is divine.

Enjoy a walk down the beach toward Fay Bainbridge State Park. At high tide, just walk up the road along the spit and cut over to the park. Or, walk around the beach (with a view of the Olympic Mountains) toward the lagoon to find all sorts of treasures and wildlife. A Bald Eagle swooped over the front of the house one morning while we watched two otters play in the waters beyond the beach. The life around us seemed to continuously change in its own cycle and rhythm.

For comfort, views, location, value, amenities, and more, June’s Place is THE place!

Wonderful place to stay!

My husband, sister and brother in law stayed for a long two-night weekend and had a terrific stay. The view from both sides of the house is amazing and the house is cozy, very comfortable, and well taken care of. We relaxed! Leslie is great to communicate with and made our stay that much more enjoyable. We visited Bloedel Reserve (a must!), walked the spit and the state park and its beach, enjoyed gorgeous sunsets and sunrises, saw herons and otters, and explore Winslow, eating at one of Leslie's suggestions. I highly recommend a stay at June's Place!

Romantic Getaway from the City

  • 5 of 5

Our romantic weekend began even before we left Seattle. June's Place owner Lesley Carey sent us an email with recommendations for dining, shopping, and a tip on the beautiful Bloedel Reserve, which I'm embarrassed to say I didn't even know about. We took her up on both of her dining recommendations and she was spot on!

When we arrived, we found an immaculately kept beach house on a quiet, private lagoon that balances the warmth and comforts of home with the amenities and cleanliness of an upscale hotel. She stocks everything you could need for a home cooked meal, there is an extensive and eclectic library for those lazy days staring at the beach in front of the window, and when we wanted to enjoy the fresh air, the sand was steps from our front door.

While there were just the two of us, the house easily accommodates more than one couple or a family. There are two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a perfectly placed dining room table looking out onto the beach, plenty of cooking and serving dishes, tons of games, a TV room with a movie library, cable, wifi, a back deck situated on the lagoon complete with an outdoor dining table (perfect for morning coffee), and an unlimited supply of shells for the little ones to discover.

In terms of customer service, I can't rate the owner highly enough. In addition to the helpful recommendations, she went out of her way to help us out of a small jam. We wrote down an incorrect address and got lost on the way in. We called her and she coached us in via phone in the pitch dark. It was nearing 11pm but she would not let us off the phone until she knew we were in safely.

My husband almost never stops. During our stay at June's Place, he slept in, spent hours just sitting on the beach tossing rocks and shells, and meandered around charming Winslow shops and eateries. Our overgrown lawn and weeding could not have been further from his mind and I could not have asked for more.

We will recommend this property to our friends, both for the space itself, for the stellar service, and for a lovely relaxing atmosphere just a ferry ride away. THANK YOU!!!

We had a great time at June's Place! The setting was incredible and the house was immaculate. The beach in front was so beautiful and a perfect place to skip rocks or roast marshmallows. The back deck was perfect for morning coffee and bird watching. We hope to be back!
