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. A perfect inspirational setting for those aspiring storytellers.

Julie Shatzel purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Shatzel chose Puget Sound

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.

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 of Rolling Bay Cafe, which serves sublime coffee and wonderful breakfast pastries. Pino's pasta is also within walking distance, you'll find daily fresh made pasta and sauces and meet Pino. There are a myriad of plants on the island that offer their wonderful variety of green foliage as the splendor of the plants and flowers nourished by the community residents.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my sister's family and a friend to stay in over a long graduation weekend. We found the house very clean and comfortable. Everyone loved their stay. The property is on a high bluff and overlooks the water. It even has a view of Seattle. There is no water access that I know of. The master bedroom is upstairs and has the most spectacular view. Downstairs one bedroom has a porch and a view of the water. One bedroom has no view or porch. The house has a lovely deck that is the nicest place to sit in the morning with coffee.

Finally, the owner and the agent who rents the house are both very responsive.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying! I'm sorry you missed the path to the beach, there are 2 beaches that are within walking distance from the house, both about a 10 minute walk. Manitou Beach is down the path to the left of the house and to the right of the house around the corner is Rolling Bay Walk beach path.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This sweet house has amazing water and Seattle city skyline views. With floor-to-ceiling windows, upstairs and down, and cozy fireplaces/gas stoves, this was a perfect place for our family to celebrate Thanksgiving together. We loved being right on the water and watching the ferries go by. Gorgeous views of snow-capped mountains, too. And the moon on the water, coupled with the lights of Seattle, was breathtaking at night. Clean and well-stocked rooms with en suite baths and a nice entertaining flow. Plenty of space for six people to relax.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This home is outstanding in every way. Kitchen stocked well enough to cook and bake almost anything you want. Well furnished with linens to spare. Even without the view it is worth every penny in rent. The view is over the top. My wife mentioned that a lone pine that stood (off the property) between the fire pit seats and the view of downtown, looked as if it was trimmed to make the perfect frame for the scene.

Perhaps the best rental on the island

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here- great property and lots of privacy. The views are fantastic and make sure to walk down to the beach. The blackberries were in full swing too and it was so fun to pick them everywhere! We adored being able to keep the doors open at all hours and having no bugs flying around. The gardens are pretty and it's quite peaceful here. Thank you!

Idyllic Island Oasis Overlooking the Puget Sound

  • 5 of 5

For my 40th birthday, we had the absolute pleasure of extending a weekend at this beautiful vacation home. To welcome us, we were greeted with a bouquet of lilies and box full of treats from the local bakery. This was our first visit to Bainbridge Island and it was perfect! The house sits overlooking the Puget Sound with sweeping views of the Seattle landscape. There are windows in every room, offering an unobstructed view of the landscape. Boasting with modern touches, this house offers a cozy yet sophisticated feel for both the tech savvy and simplistic home body. The home is privately tucked away at the end of the street, with access to the waterfront and several hiking trails. The landscape surrounding the island is lush and bountiful. We were just a few minutes walking distance from the local coffee shop and a short drive from the main town. This is great weekend escape for friends, or a fun filled family vacation. We will most certainly be back.
