Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Welcome to June's Place- a sunny beach home with a soul located on the exquisite and tranquil Pt. Monroe. Discover the front beach footsteps away from your door or relax on the spectacular natural Ipe wood back deck on the lagoon. Tastefully appointed interior incorporating a blend of contemporary and 100 year-old antique furnishings. High-quality, well-maintained home with natural bamboo flooring throughout. The main living area with views to the beach surrounds a natural wood burning stove for warm conversation. Relax in the sitting room with a good book, watch a movie or the wildlife in the lagoon. Create a meal in the fully equipped kitchen and dine on the back deck over the lagoon or inside with views to the front beach. Enjoy a beach fire or have a picnic! Play a game of croquet or savor a stroll along the beach. Slow down, experience the exquisite surroundings, rich wildlife and changing of the tides

Birdwatching: For those of you who are birdwatchers, you will be thrilled with what you might “spot” during your visit. The autumn, winter, and spring months bring extraordinary, migratory visitors to both the salt water estuary, and deep waters of Agate Pass. Amongst the confirmed spots: Black Oystercatcher, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Harlequin Duck, Long Tailed Duck, Surf Scoter, Common and Barrow’s Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, Common Merganser, Red Breasted Merganser, Double Crested Cormorant, Pigeon Guillemot, American Wigeon, Common Murre, Horned Grebe, Western Grebe, Surfbird, Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Black Turnstone, Sanderling, Western Sandpiper. During the summer months, the resident Great Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, and Mallard Ducks will entertain you down by the water. Just take a short walk to nearby Fay Bainbridge State Park, and listen to and look at the trees. Early morning and just before sunset are the best times for woodland birding.

Test your beachcombing skills to find sand, seashells, stones and driftwood, along with gems of green, blue, red and orange sea glass. For the discerning comber, look for the agates, mostly orange, with the sun to their back, on the lowest of tides, right at the line between the large rocks, and the sand...

Why Leslie Carey chose Puget Sound

My property was purchased by my late parents in the 70's, originally a small cabin which was totally rebuilt in 1992 to become a year-round home for my mother, June. I have many fabulous memories of spending glorious summers here as a child and still to this day it is a place that warms my heart and soothes the soul.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Lake Isle of Innisfree

William Butler Yeats



I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,

And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;

Nine beans rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,

And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow….

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; I hear it in my deep heart’s core.



June’s Place reminds me of Yeats’ poem, and staying here cures most ills and heartaches - I find there is no “cure” for leaving, except perhaps to return again and again. Thanks Leslie for making it all possible.

Excellent location with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

What a serene and relaxing getaway! The house is located in a very quiet area with water on two sides of the property. You can enjoy a fire on the beach or sit on the beautiful deck. The house was exceptionally clean and well furnished. It's the perfect place to unwind and just enjoy the scenery. We highly recommend this property for your time on beautiful Bainbridge Island.

Senic views, clean, tranquil, friendly neighbors

  • 5 of 5

We were there over the fourth of July. Even with fireworks it was the most peaceful and restful place we stayed on vacation. We also got spectacular views of people setting fireworks off all along the shore.

The kitchen was well provisioned. Wish we could have taken advantage of the beach fire pit while we were there, that was also well provisioned. The house was clean, well maintained, it was a lovely area, and the neighbors were very nice. Would definitely go back!

We had a really great time on the spit and much of it was because of the great location, very comfortable and nicely appointed rooms, and great back deck and ocean side beach front. Lovely, lovely lovely.

Going Back to June's Place for Sure!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, but something is always going on in Puget Sound: sailboat races and boats bringing in their crab pots! If you walk to the Faye Bainbridge Park (about a block-and-a-half walk), you come smack-dab into Mt Rainier, it seems like you could "touch it".

All that beauty is out front of the house. Out back on the deck is the Lagoon, which is full when the tide is IN and almost empty when OUT. There are all kinds of creatures stirring about: lots of birds, herons eagles and ducks - you can clam dig if you bring your boots.

The Sandspit is the most unique and peaceful place to BE - they have wonderful restaurants and a great Bakery and an even greater bookstore. Oh, great biking too - if you like HILLS!

Really lovely place to stay. I would stay there again when in Seattle area.

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this home is a lovely welcoming person. She has created a warm, inviting home on a very unique piece of property. You have water views out the front and the back of the house. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. Most are not even home. There is a lovely park just at the end of the street for kids to run around and make some noise if needed. The house has a great TV room, a breakfast room with a great views and 2 comfy bedrooms and bathrooms. I loved this place and would like to visit again. The beds are comfy but just queen size. There are steep stairs to climb to get to both bedrooms, so this needs to be considered before going. One of the bathrooms is downstairs and the other is located in the Master bedroom upstairs. This worked fine for us but may not work for everyone. The kitchen is VERY WELL STOCKED. The owner even left us a welcoming bottle of wine. I recommend this place to anyone who can handle stairs and a queens size bed, but only if you want a relaxing, quiet place to stay where you can watch the tide come in ;). The pictures do not show just how great it is. I highly recommend this house!
