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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The review I am posting is from an email I received after the guests were there a couple of days. This is just what they needed:



"OMG! We spent the first hour, speechless. The pix on the website DO NOT do the cottage justice. We peeked around the corner when we arrived and My Sweetie kept saying “are you sure this is it?!” When the code opened the door, it felt like a magic trick.



This is the nicest, most beautifully appointed place we have ever stayed. EVER.



You have really thought of every imaginable creature comfort and your attention to the little pleasurable things is off the charts. Orchids? Q-tips? Half and half? Kosher salt? Check check check check. The way light floods every room is genius planning. A-plus girl.







We have not even left the property yet. Not once.



Our children are calling and texting. We are using a rock/paper/scissors system to decide which one of us returns those calls. We do not miss them. We are sending them pictures of the vista of the deck and laughing at their misfortune. We were not this cruel when we left Texas. But we haven’t had this much sleep in a long time.





My big plans for the day are a haircut and ice cream at Mora’s. My wife is wearing the bathrobe you provided as a uniform. I don’t know why she bothered to pack other clothes. I can’t go more than an hour without thinking a nap sounds good. My current schedule is: snack, nap, freshen drink……hmm….sleepy…… repeat. You might as well block this week off for us every year. We are now family. "

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.

Addicted to Bainbridge

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time on Bainbridge Island. The cozy cottage is exactly that! We were so depressed to leave. Almost feeling like we were leaving our beautiful home! The pictures on the website depict the cottage perfectly, but that first time you walk in and see that view it's
just WOW!! Sitting every morning with a cup of coffee ( that I made in the cozy kitchen ) on the deck looking at Mt. Rainer and the gentle rippling of the water was the BEST feeling. Having the kayaks and bicycles were an extra bonus. Once we did get the hang of traveling
around the island it was easy. The road that lead to the cottage was a bit challenging but of course was well worth it! ( The road was very narrow ). Everything is nearby, food shopping at the nearest Safeway was easy. There are some very good restuarants on the island too, such as Doc's and Four Sparrows. I personally have an issue with my joints...there is an aquatic center nearby for anyone who needs or enjoys swimming. I would definitely recommend this property...actually I would like to keep it a secret!!! My family looks forward to going back next year and enjoying the beauty of the island, the sites, the views and especially relaxing in the South Beach Cozy Cottage.

This cozy cottage is very comfortable and well appointed with a fantastic view of the sound.
Ideal for those who want to get away from it all and enjoy the natural beauty of the island.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Deb was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was very accommodating, helpful, and the cottage is charming and comfortable. You cannot beat the location and view! Our family of four fit very comfortably, and the kids loved exploring on the beach...so much to see and find! Downtown Bainbridge was close enough to run into for necessities, and the shopping and activities were perfect! I would definitely recommend staying here...cannot beat the price for a cottage like this!

Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5
I really liked staying at the beach cottage for a girls' weekend with my mom and aunt. The home and hostess offered lots of unexpected amenities (cozy bathrobes, restaurant suggestions) that made it particularly pleasant. But the show-stopper was the unbelievable view of surrounding communities, Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier. The deck was large with lots of sitting areas -- a perfect place to read and enjoy the view while listening to waves lapping at the shore. Lovely!

Lovely Bainbridge Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful cottage all around - beautifully updated interior, warm atmosphere, adventurous equipment (e.g., bikes, kayaks), breathtaking view of Mt. Rainer and the water, easy location. Renter was incredibly friendly and helpful. It was hard to leave. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Bainbridge.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights in July and it was such a great experience. The owner of the cottage had truly thought of everything ... every amenity from home was there! She put together a welcome kit for us (cheese, wine, etc.) until we could make it to the store, had restaurant suggestions laid out, bikes for us to use, kayaks, etc. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, cookware, etc. We truly wanted for nothing while we stayed there! It was like a home away from home. The decor is very cozy and charming. We'll definitely be back!
