Why diane kurzontkowski chose Puget Sound

we found these cottages and the location reminiscent of cape cod where we grew up - "sweep out" cottages, great for a romantic get-away or piling the whole family in. We love the location, warm in the summer protected from the northern winds, southwestern exposure for lovely sunsets. We like being able to walk 1 block to the movie theatre, bakery/deli, morning latte, 3 restaurants and a small grocery store. Our favorite activities include hiking and biking from the cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

We love to walk out the door and hike around fort ward or bike on the south end of the island.

Quaint cottage with beautiful view and within walking distance to good restaurants and coffee shops

Enjoyed walking on beach. The BI bus made getting around island very easy. Loved the afternoon at the Bloedel Reserve. Can't wait to come back and spend more time.

Everything we imagined it would be. A great vacation in beautiful quite location.

  • 5 of 5

It was everything a vacation should be. Quite and relaxing with all the comforts of home. We loved the cute little cottage in the most amazing location watching the tide roll in, the majestic sunsets, and the lush green forest. The cottage had everything we needed. The bed and bedding were soft, luxurious and very comfortable, the best sleep I've had in a long time. Loved the short walk to restaurants and the Beach House Bar had the most amazing food. A very easy short ride to the ferry. Thanks for everything....

Small, Quaint, Clean

  • 5 of 5

To be honest...

I was in a whirlwind of planning and suspense. I was sent to this vrbo listing to help me compliment the trip I planned to propose...

This place met and exceeded all expectations. I am hesitant to post this review only because I would hate to hinder my own ability to book it again.

Julie keeps the beach cottage immaculate and organized. It is tastefully decorated and kept simple. We spent countless hours looking over the water in the rocking chairs on the patio. Serenity. Biggest thing for me is cleanliness and it was kept immaculate.

Only feedback would be to place curtains over the kitchen sink window to improve privacy(a must), update the TV to a current model within 5 years(do not stay if your point is to watch TV...practically impossible), and to supply some sort of refreshments within the fridge comparable to the rate.

We will be back, that is for certain, hopefully on an annual basis. The beach cottage provided everything needed to make my proposal magic. It will be, forever, a special place for myself and my newly wife to be.

We loved the Beach Cottage. We will definitely come again.

The cottage was very charming, needs a little updating. Bathroom sink was a little wobbly and cracked. Needs to be replaced, however, overall the place was wonderful.

Charming and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The most positive thing I could say is that I would definitely recommend this cottage to my friends and family for a stay on Bainbridge Island. The property is well cared for and has everything you need. The cottage is tastefully furnished with a comfortable bed and nice linens which is an important feature for me. It's an easy walk to Lynwood Center which has everything you need. The bus system works wonderfully if you don't have a car; but we actually rented a car on the island so we could drive up to Port Townsend. There's so much to see, every vista is more beautiful than the one before. This is a beautiful part of the US, not to be missed.

Cute & rustic cottage with nice view of water

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cottage in walking distance to a great little village. Nice sunset views and beautiful hikes nearby in Fort Ward. Be aware that the cottage is right next to a fairly busy road and there is constant traffic noise. Having screens on all of the windows would have been nice. Overall, a cute little getaway cottage. Thanks again Julie!

Walk one block to Historic Lynwood Center and Pleasant Beach Village. Dine at one of three restaurants, enjoy your morning latte and pastry, listen to live music at The Treehouse Cafe, watch a movie at The Historic Lynwood Theatre, get a massage, enjoy happy hour at Suzanne Maurice Wine Bar or bring back a bottle of wine and cheese from Walt's Neighborhood Market!

Some of the best hiking and biking is right out the front door on the south end of the island!
