About Pat McShane

We have been fans of Bainbridge Island for a very long time and when the opportunity to acquire this home arose, we couldn't resist. We have spent over three decades managing award winning hotels and saw this house as a great chance to blend our professional experience with a love for the island.

Both of us are avid cyclists, and kayakers which are some of the many outdoor activities that you can enjoy on Bainbridge.

We hope you have the opportunity to stay with us and enjoy all that our location has to offer.

Pat McShane purchased this house in 2012

Why Pat McShane chose Puget Sound

We fell in love with this house because of the stunning view of Seattle and Puget Sound from every room in the house. The other advantages are its low traffic south island location, great cycling, kayaking, diving and wonderful light filled rooms.

What makes this house unique

This is a great house for activities such as sipping coffee while watching the sun come up over Seattle and the cascades, sitting on the beach with a campfire or just walking the dog to Halls Hill Overlook.

For those wanting more physical activities the south island location is convenient to cycling over to Lynnwood for a morning pastry, jumping on one of the hiking trails close by or kayaking to Blakely harbor.

Exceeded our expections....wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this home. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. The home is immaculate and the views are unbelievable. We especially enjoyed the master bedroom, falling asleep to the sound of the crashing waves and the view of the Seattle lights. Very private, we didn't see one neighbor during our entire stay. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a first class vacation rental. We will be back and hope to stay longer during our next visit.

Fantastic View of Seattle Skyline

  • 5 of 5

The view was even better then pictures show!! You have your own beachfront to watch the Ferries go by. Landscaping was was nice too. We found the house very clean and I am picky!! Inside the house the views are awesome as well, even from the Master bedroom. Kitchen is well stocked with quality items. If I had to think of a negative it would be that we could of use another comfortable loungy type chair in the living room besides the sofa but there was plenty of seating.

Also, owners were great to work with and very helpful!

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a winter week in this very nice home. The location is ideal and the views were outstanding. We spent lots of time watching the ferries, the weather, and the twinkling lights of Seattle. The house was very comfortable; well furnished and well equipped. The fireplace perfectly warmed the cool evenings. And the fire pit by the beach made it great fun to enjoy an evening glass of wine watching the ferries and listening to the waves. The owners, Pat and Carla were super to deal with and made the rental process very easy. We wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect couple of days away from the hustle and bustle of Seattle. The house is perfectly appointed in an amazing waterfront location. Imagine watching the sunrise and ferry crossings from bed! We had a blast...from watching deer frolic through the yard to searching for sea glass on the beach to a family game of Apples to Apples. Thanks for sharing your home! We'll be back.

Rockaway Beach Road is one of most sought after locations on the island because of its outstanding views and quiet south island location. The south end of the island is the quieter location and does not have the traffic of 305 to contend with.
