Puget Sound House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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.

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.

Beautiful House - Fantastic Host

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House is absolutely beautiful. Better than the pictures in the listing can convey and in such a lovely location on the beach. We had a wonderful time!

Every interaction with the owner assured us both that we were staying in a home that is very special to him and that he sincerely cared about the quality of our experience there. By way of example, my daughters and I took my husband out for a birthday dinner while staying at The Beach House. The restaurant we selected was recommended by the owner so he knew when we were out to dinner. Imagine our surprise and delight when, upon finishing our meal, we were told that the bill for the evening had been taken care of by the owner of The Beach House! Such a kind and thoughtful gesture.

I would highly recommend this property (and this host)!

Stunning Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I was planning a girls weekend and wanted something special that everyone would enjoy. This house was amazing! The views are breathtaking and the house is exceptionally furnished. The owner was so nice and informative. We should have stayed longer than a weekend - as it was we never left the house!

Fabulous Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was beautifully appointed and decorated and had a stunning view - especially at night - of the Seattle skyline. The owners take great care of their property and it is clearly set up for an organized and pleasant rental. The beds were THE MOST comfortable I'd ever slept on. Really. Bring water shoes because the beach is quite rocky. It was so fun to watch the ferry go by and see other action in the water. I'd highly recommend it!

A great place!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was the best vacation rental we have ever done. With a breathtaking view of Seattle, on the water, quiet, beautifully decorated and furnished, our family had a great week and have already booked a return for 2016. We like to cook, and found the kitchen incredibly well-equipped with every utensil, pot and pan you would want, along with a full range of cooking spices, olive oils etc. The bed and bath linens were first class, many nice touches throughout the house from bath soaps to wonderful laundry room, this is a classy place that met the needs of our family well. It's big enough that people can find their own space to be alone, go down by the water, use one of the huge bedrooms, or be together on the deck or great room/kitchen. A 5 star rental.

Phenomenal House! Amazing Views! You won't want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to David! We were a family of 5 staying in his spectacular house last week. From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were home. We loved the house. The amenities were fantastic. The views were amazing. The house was impeccably furnished & he thought of everything. The whole stay was very well organized. From the entry code at the front door, to the manual with directions for everything in the house, to the menus for Bainbridge Island restaurants he thought of everything. Thank you again to David we look forward to staying in your beautiful house again.

Gorgeous Beach House on Bainbridge Island with a breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beach House was just PERFECT! The house is beautiful, amazing decor, comfy, clean, has everything you need, which makes it hard to leave and enjoy Bainbridge Island and Seattle. We arrived to the house on a Friday night and the moment we walked into the house we were taken away! The view of the city at night is just breathtaking. The owner David, was very informative and provided us with everything we needed for our stay prior to arrival, including a list of great restaurants and things to do. We had a wonderful trip even though it was short, We highly recommend "The Beach House"- Thank you David!
