NOW BOOKING 2018!! Rockaway Beach is one of the most exclusive locations on Bainbridge Island. Known for its amazing water front views of the “Emerald City.” This custom built, adult oriented home has more than 5,000 square feet for you to enjoy. The large open floor plan was custom built to maximize the water and city views. Observe whales, seals, sea otters, bald eagles, geese, deer and many other birds and animals. Explore the beach and tide pools to see firsthand why Jacques Cousteau called the Puget Sound the most marine rich body of water in the world. Fish for Coho salmon, Chinook salmon, Sockeye salmon and Dungeness crab from the beach (when in season of course). And if all that sounds like too much work then, you can just relax on the deck and take in the view.

Bainbridge Island

A scenic 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island has rustic charm with quiet country roads and lovely gardens making this a favorite destination. Known for its arts community, Bainbridge has its own Performing Arts Center and Arts & Crafts Gallery featuring regional artists. Enjoy shopping in historic Winslow with its trendy cafes and one of a kind island shops where you can find unusual gifts from the Northwest and beyond. Outdoor enthusiast will enjoy a walk through the Bloedel Reserve, and nature lover's paradise. Other fun outdoor activities include hiking, biking, equestrian trails, golf and tennis. From Bainbridge Island you can cross the Agate Pass Bridge to the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula.

Rockaway Beach

Getting to Rockaway Beach is half the fun. About half way across the Sound, the ferry will turn towards Eagle Harbor. Look for the home with the white fence five houses down from the left. This is where you will be staying. At the end of the scenic drive around Eagle Harbor the road becomes Rockaway Beach the Emerald City will take your breath away. Fight the urge to stop because this is the view waiting for you at The Beach House. As you drive down the tree lined street of Rockaway Beach you will discover why the street is so well known on Bainbridge Island. Drive slowly, look at the amazing properties on the street and keep an eye out for the local residence like deer, raccoons, fox and humans. You are almost home.

The Beach House

When entering the front door, the Seattle skyline sets the tone for this home. Every window, door and mirror is oriented to maximize this unique location. Watch the city change throughout the day. From the morning sun rises to the fiery reflections of the sunsets. The views are constantly changing and there is always something new and different to observe during the day and night. No expense was spared to ensure your comfort inside this home. Professionally decorated, gourmet appointed kitchen, master bath with Jacuzzi and lush 500 tread count linens are just a few features that will make your stay feel like that of a world case spa. There is also a finished basement with Atari cocktail video arcade with 60 Atari games like Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger. There is also a pool table/ping pong table TV and entertainment.

Please be courteous of the neighbors. This is a very quiet street and this is not a party house. You may be on vacation. However, the neighbors are not. All beaches are private property and must be respected.

About David Clemson

I have been a real estate broker for more than twenty five years. Rarely do I come across a property as incredible as this one. We knew this was the home for us the moment we open the front door and saw the Seattle skyline. This property is our second home and it is not your typical rental. With that being said, this property is not for everyone. We thoroughly screen our guests to maintain our pride of ownership and to assure our guests the best experience possible.

David Clemson purchased this house in 2006

Why David Clemson chose Puget Sound

There is no other place like The Beach House. Read the reviews to understand its magic from the perspective of the guests who have lived here. If you are a neat freak then this is the place for you.

What makes this house unique

When you are sitting in the living room taking in the view, it feels like you are on a boat looking out at the water.

Great location and property

  • 4 of 5

Second visit to the Beach House and still very impressed with the location and quality of the immensities. Very spacious property with everything you would want for a family visit including a games room in the basement. The views back to Seattle are amazing and we spent many happy hours with a glass of wine sitting on the back deck.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Beach House over Labor Day Weekend and it was spectacular in every way. From Davids attentiveness to delivering an impeccably clean home and easy arrival to the breathtaking views of Puget Sound and greater Seattle, it was perfect. It is close to town, but far from everything in the perfect balance. If you are looking for a gorgeous escape with a fantastic host, this is your destination.

Meant to use Bainbridge as a starting point for exploring Seattle but ended up not leaving the island and instead staying at the amazing house with a view back to Seattle and exploring the local area. Seattle can wait for another day.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike: You are the first of 52 reviews to not give a 5 star rating. Was there something missing? Was the home lacking something? Did I not respond immediately to all your requests and questions? How could I have made this a better experience for you and your family? Sounds like you had an amazing time. I am always looking to improve. Please tell me why you gave The Beach House 4 stars and not 5 stars. I strive to knock it out of the park for everyone visiting us and I would really like to know where I fell short.

the benchmark of future stays

  • 5 of 5

This as our third year at The Beach House, and we stayed two weeks this year. The home is truly a home: incredible view back to the city of Seattle, right on the water with views of Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainer on clear days, large expansive living and sleeping spaces, great chefs kitchen incredibly equipped with every utensil, pot, pan, serving disk and most spices/oils you might want. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly maintained, and for our family, comes with three large bedrooms that accommodated our grown children and grandchildren comfortably. There is NOTHING in want of repair, and if you need something, owner David is incredibly responsive and prompt, as is his local housekeeper Stephanie. This is the mark by which we judge other VRBO rentals--forever!

Incredible View. Beautiful and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible home with an even more impressive view. Very relaxing. The beds were extremely comfortable. House was immaculate. David (Owner) was great. Very accommodating. Had a great time exploring the island and other towns nearby. You won't go wrong with the house.
