Booking 2017 now!! 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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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.
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.
We spent 6 nights at The Beach House and hated to leave. The home is well equipped and beds are very comfortable. The view is worth every penny! Very peaceful surroundings and loved staying there. The owner did supply us with fresh oysters and they were amazing...would go back again for sure. 8/26/16
This was our second time renting The Beach House, and it was like coming home. The view is spectacular,, location private and quiet, you're right on the beach, oysters for the asking, sound of waves all night long. The house is spotless and beautifully decorated, great attention to detail and amenities throughout in every way, from quality bedding to bath amenities, there is nothing missing. As gourmet cooks this is the finest kitchen we have ever seen equipped in a VRBO house, from knives to utensils for anything and oils, spices, etc. Each of our three families has a private space with ample room, baths, laundry etc so grandchildren can take naps and adults can too. Great game room in the lower level. Our family walked in and said, 'this is a great place." So VRBD (vacation rentals by dad) booked it for TWO weeks next year. That's how much we love this place.
This house is truly home away from home!!! The views are spectacular and the amenities are top notch. We've been coming to this house for years and when we walk through the front door and see the view, it's unbelievable and like our first time all over again. The island is a special place and when you're staying at this house, it's like the world stops and you're in a slice of heaven... I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway that wants a breathtaking view from any corner of this rental house.
We've been lucky enough to stay at the Beach House numerous times and it never disappoints! The views are unbelievable and the property is well maintained. The amenities are upscale and current. Everything in the house is well thought out and comfortable. A short ferry ride to Seattle and we were able to enjoy Pike's Place, the Aquarium, and 5 star dining. The owner recommended dining and activities on the island were helpful in making our stay memorable. The oysters at Hitchcock's are a must and lunch at New Rise Cafe is always delicious! We feel blessed to have vacationed at the Beach House and can't wait to come back. We would recommend the Beach House in a heartbeat!
Our stay at the Beach House was unbelievable!!! To begin with the location is just spectacular as the description says. To wake up to a sunrise over the Cascade Range with the Seattle skyline is unforgettable. All day long looking out the spacious windows at the ferry and Puget Sound is both captivating and relaxing.
The property has everything you would ever need for your convenience. It seems the owners have really thought out every detail to make a lasting memorable experience. The decorating style and numerous amenities makes you feel comfortable and right at home.
We feel very fortunate to have been able to stay at the Beach House and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone wishing to have a luxurious vacation. Thank you to David for making a wonderful vacation possible!!!
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)!

Every room has been furnished to maximize your comfort and to take in the views. The large master suite in complete with a cozy fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and shower for two.
