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.

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.
