SOUTH BEACH COZY COTTAGE - WATERFRONT PERFECTION

Bainbridge Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Sound, Mt. Rainier, & city views

Come and enjoy our Waterfront Beach Cottage.

The cottage is located on Puget Sound with stunning southern views of the water, Mt. Rainier, and Washington State Ferries. It is a great place for a stress-relieving break or more active pursuits.

One of the things we enjoy most about our cozy cottage is watching local wildlife. Bald Eagles are easily seen from the home and deck. Seals, sea lions, cranes, and other critters pass by daily. Orcas played off our beach in June 2013. What a treat!

At low tide, throw on your water shoes and head to the beach to visit tidal pools brimming with colorful starfish and sea anemones. It’s great for anyone with a curious mind and young at heart.

Our location benefits from being situated along a popular maritime route and with Mt. Rainier as a backdrop. The water is studded with ferries, naval ships (including aircraft carriers and submarines), ocean-going ships, sail boats, yachts, kayaks, and even paddleboards. If you like, you can use our 2 kayaks to explore yourself!

Another option is to use our five (5) hybrid/mountain bikes to ride along the largely flat South Beach Drive into Ft Ward and on to Lynwood Center. Lynwood Center has an art house theatre, bakery, restaurants, cafes, boutiques, ice cream, small grocery, and a Sunday farmers' market.

Visit Winslow, the Island's primary shopping district and only a short drive away. You'll find everything you may need including groceries, retail therapy, movies, and many excellent restaurants and pubs.

If you want to play golf there are several in the vicinity.

If gambling is your fun, a casino located just off the north end of the Island. For cycling enthusiasts, Bainbridge Island is a well known bike riding destination.

The Island Also offers numerous trails and walks including one just up Toe Jam Hill Road and others at the foot of Blakely Harbor, as well as numerous others throughout the Island.

The Island is home to several wineries and a distillery if you are interested in tasting some of our local products.

Or, if you are just looking to get a break from it all, you most certainly can find relaxation and a retreat in our cottage all by itself. No need to leave.

All rooms have water views. The cottage features a beautiful and extremely well-equipped Kitchen.

The very comfortable Living and Dining rooms provide captivating views of the comings and goings on the water and the lights from West Seattle. In the evening, the illuminated ferries will remind you of Christmas tree ornaments.

The 2 Bedrooms have queen beds, flat screen TVs, and hummingbird feeders that attract birds from dawn until sunset – year round.

Both Bathrooms have skylights. The Master Bath has a low curb, walk-in shower with a small seat. The Main Bath has a claw foot tub where you can relax, watch the sky and trees above.

The deck enjoys sun during the morning and early afternoon and then shade in the afternoons. Relax on the outdoor furniture, have a sun-filled breakfast or lunch and watch the eagles soar past.

Continue down the steps towards the water for areas where you can sit and enjoy views of Seattle skyline, relax in a two person hammock, enjoy the fire pit, paddle kayaks, or hop down to the beach to explore tide pools and collect shells and cool rocks at low tide.

We split our time between Seattle and Bainbridge Island truncated by attacks of wanderlust. We enjoy sharing what we love about Bainbridge and Seattle.

Deb Fussell purchased this house in 2004

What a view!!! From the moment we walk through the front door , we were stunned by the views of the Mountain and the Sound. Our original plans were to re-build and modernize the cottage, but instead, we improved it and still love it.

We at times since owning the Cottage have lived here and also commuted to work from the island. We have found that the cottage is a fantastic place to 'chill' or 'get jazzed'.

We love being away from it all, but can drive a short distance into Island centers - Winslow or Lynnwood where dining, pubs, entertainment and shopping options are numerous.

Additionally, Seattle is just a short ferry ride away.

This place puts the 'C' in Cozy, the 'FUN' in Functional, and provides a bead on maritime and wild life comings and goings.

Its a great place to enjoy the Pacific Northwest at its best. Whether from the comfort of the cottage, the expansive deck or down by the water, this is the place for you.

The kitchen is well-equipped and provides a good place to closely watch hummingbirds feed right in front of the kitchen sink. Too cool!

The living room is nicely decorated, and comfy. It benefits from large windows that provide a fantastic view. The expansive wrap around deck provides a bird's eye view of the water, the mountain, wildlife and maritime traffic.

HEAVEN ON BAINBRIDGE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Deb's South Beach Cozy Cottage while visiting family on the island. We had an amazing time! The cottage and it's amenities were exactly as described in the VRBO listing. Deb was a joy to work with. She was very responsive to all communications...even as she herself was vacationing with family in Italy!! We arrived weary from our travels and wine, cheese, sausages and a few other much appreciated staples were there to greet us. The cottage and property was immaculate. Our bed was amazingly comfortable with exquisite linens. The bathrooms were stocked with quality shampoo, conditioner, body washes and lotion.
The deck was a perfect place to entertain a small group of family. Even our guests (Bainbridge Island residents) were amazed with the view...especially when a school of porpoises and a breaching whale were viewed. We enjoyed the kayaks and the bikes that were available for our use. We left car keys behind and Stef, housekeeper extraordinaire promptly mailed them to us.
We will return for more wonderful times!!! Thank you Deb for sharing such a gem!

COZY COTTAGE A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
The South Beach Cozy Cottage was exactly as described. The place was clean and very well stocked. The owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome. I didn't want to leave, it was so beautiful and relaxing. Bainbridge Island is a charming place with fun places to eat, see, and shop, but we just wanted to be on that glorious deck soaking up the beauty of the water. We spent 5 nights on the island and chose to spend the last two in Seattle, which was fun. I would recommend staying the whole time on the island and taking the ferry across to see Seattle, we wish we had done that.

SERENE BEACH COTTAGE, STUNNING VIEWS, FANTASTIC STAY!

  • 5 of 5
What can I possible add that hasn't already been written about this gem of a cottage? This collection of stellar reviews is entirely reflective of our stay — including the graciousness of our hosts, the well stocked kitchen, the comfort of the cottage itself, the wide, wrap-around deck for enjoying stunning views, and the deer, seals, hummingbirds, eagles, and tidal pools teaming with life. Our thoughtful host Debbie left plenty of tasty provisions to accommodate our needs well into the next morning so we didn't need to trouble ourselves immediately with a trip to the market. She also made some great suggestions for things to do around the island and places to eat. We felt like well tended guests in her home and we look forward to our next visit!

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE ~ WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The owner provided us with some "welcome" goodies and wine. The kitchen was well stocked with staples for our use. The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable for us and the view unbeatable. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend away. Such an enjoyable stay!

CHARMING BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We were so fortunate to find this gem of a cottage. Our host, Debbie, was very helpful from the time of my inquiry about the cottage till the time we left the island. Much thought was put into our stay by our host and she was very easy to get in contact with, something that is not always easy to do with these rentals. She made some very good suggestions on things to do around the island and places to dine. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It has a bright, warm, airy feeling thanks to the many windows and sky lights. With the 2 bedrooms and the middle room it was just right for our family of 4. The master bedroom was very comfortable, our daughter had the 2nd bedroom. The décor in both bedrooms matched the charm of the cottage. Our 17 year old son was very comfortable on the sofa sleeper in the middle room. We really enjoyed our time here, the deck was a perfect setting for our dinners which were made up of the delicious fresh food we were able to purchase at Pikes Place Market and the Farmers market on Bainbridge Island. There’s nothing more delicious than meat and produce grown locally. The cottage also had a basil and rosemary plant which Deb said we were welcome to use. Fresh produce, fresh pasta, fresh meat, fresh herbs what a feast! We used both the stove & oven as well as the grill to prepare the meals. Kitchen was very well stocked with pots & pans and spices. It was a pleasant surprise to find the little extras such as making for s’mores, fruits, crackers, and jams. We have rented many different vacation rentals which have been nice, this jewel tops them all. We have never stayed at a place that is almost as well stocked as my own home. The location of the cottage is absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed combing the beach for shells with views of Seattle and Mt. Rainier. We spent a lot of time on the deck, we were able to see seals and otters off shore. We also were visited by a Mama doe and her two fawns, what a treat! They hung around for about ½ hour each time. We also had bald eagles flying by the deck on a daily basis. I especially enjoyed watching the antics of the hummingbirds as they vied for the nectar in the feeders. When it got cooler in the evening we were able to sit in the living room and enjoy the view, the ferries going to Bremerton looked so pretty on the water at night. Bainbridge is one of the prettiest places we have vacationed at. Exploring the island was fun. We visited the wineries and beaches.

This home was more than my wife and I expected. We hope to return for a two week stay this fall.
We can not say enough about the property, or property owners. We have found a new "vacation destination". For those who are familiar with and enjoy Marthas Vinyard, Bainbridge is a MUST visit.
