About Julie Shatzel

Journaling and reading are my favorite past times. I spent most of my youth in California, and later headed to the east coast to attend graduate school. Having lived in cities and towns from California, to Michigan, Iowa and Washington D.C. I find Bainbridge island living the most moderate paced. It is a sweet blend of Seattle city culture when you wish, alongside the privacy of country and small town living. I enjoy that this location is a quite place to spend with family and friends, on the sunny side of the island.

Julie Shatzel purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Shatzel chose Bainbridge Island

This private community sits atop one of the higher elevations on the island. As far as the eye can see, there are ocean and city skyline views. The views are enhanced by the floor to ceiling windows that dominate the living room and master bedroom. Awaken to spectacular sunlight reflecting off the rippling ocean currents, and relax as you watch the lull of sailboats and natural ocean life that speckle the the expanse of the glassy sea. You will spend most of your time on the deck and by the fire at night enjoying the changing hues of the sky over Puget Sound.

What makes this house unique

This home is the perfect place for family gatherings, outdoor enthusiasts, or a couples getaway. It brings families together, puts us in awe of nature's beauty and calms the spirit. It is situated within walking distance to Manitou Beach by walking Manitou Beach drive and a second beach access is accessible to Gertie Johnson Road to reach Roling Bay.

Morning coffee is within a 10 minute walk to Rolling Bay Cafe, which serves sublime coffee and wonderful breakfast pastries. Via Rosa is also within walking distance, you'll find daily fresh made pasta and sauces and chat with Pino, this is not to be missed, the pasta is amazing.

Stunning views, wonderful central location on the island and very comfortable inside and out. I would (and will) return. Bonus: the owner ordered 4 days out of 5 of sun!!!

JK - just kidding on the owners ordering the sun, though it was that sunny.

The view of Puget Sound, downtown Seattle and Mount Baker was phenomenal!

  • 4 of 5

Amazing property on a bluff overlooking the amazing water view. The owner was very responsive. One suggestion is to install window treatments on the upper tier of windows in the master bedroom since the sun rises at 5:15 am.

Owner's Response: Appreciate the suggestion...we had thought about window treatments for the upper section windows, but decided it would partially block the ocean & sky view in the masterbedroom. Many of our past guests have particularly enjoyed the sunrise over the water view from the bedroom

Amazing!!!!! Can’t wait to go back.

I almost don’t want to gush so much, so we can just keep it all to ourselves! ;) But we really loved this home, it exceeded our exceptions. The view is amazing, just perfect and so peaceful, we spend the majority of our time sitting outside by the firepit. The house is a lovely size, there were four of us, two couples, and we all had plenty of space and privacy. I could image a family with older kids would do well here as well. The location was also great, there is the adorable town of rolling hills about a 5 minute walk away, where you can grab essentials at the farm store, breakfast/coffee at the little coffee shop and there is even a quik mart and Italian restaurant/deli, but we didn’t get a chance to try it. The neighborhood is perfect for exploring, we went on long walks, morning and evening, to admire all the houses, and of course the immeculate gardens that the island is so well known for. We cooked in one of the nights, and although the kitchen in a little small when more than one person is in there, we totally made it work. Lastly, the owner of the home Julie, was really wonderful, we actually ended up extending our stay one extra night because we loved it that much, and she was beyond accommodating - it was the cherry on top of a great experience. Can not wait for our return visit!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and had a chance to explore the island. Fresh local farm items are certainly easily accessible with the Bay Hay and Feed in the neighborhood. Great to hear that you were able to do so much walking on the island, we enjoy that as well.
