About the property

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.

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.

Waterfront Beach House with Breathtaking Seattle Views

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our recent family weekend-possibly the best we've ever rented. The kitchen was remarkably well stocked and suitable for preparing a feast (double ovens!) The view was fabulous all day long, the bedrooms were lovely and the game room was a huge hit, especially on the one rainy day. We look forward to coming again !

This is by far my favorite vacation home! It truly is magnificent! It's our home away from home and we look forward to coming back every time we have to leave. The view never gets old and the amenities are top notch. The house is beautiful and comfortable. Pictures don't do it have to see it to believe it! Can't wait to book our next stay!!

The house is everything that was presented in the pictures on line.

  • 5 of 5

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

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Can't wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

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!
