Bainbridge Island, Washington
Surrounded by spectacular views of the Agate Pass and lush, tranquil forest, this incredible Bainbridge Island vacation rental home is the essence of peace and serenity. This alluring 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom residence offers enough space to comfortably sleep 7-9 guests, making it the ultimate retreat for your next family vacation. And the residence sits mere steps above the water with direct beach access, so you'll get to fully experience the beauty of the Washington coast.
The moment you arrive, you'll immediately become enchanted by this phenomenal setting - towering pine trees, lush greenery, and gorgeous views of Agate Passage surround the property, creating a picturesque backdrop for your stay. There's an eagle's nest on the property, and otter and deer occasionally pass through, so may spot some incredible wildlife while you take in the scenery! A staircase leads directly from the house to a sandy beach below, so you can easily spend your days on the water. On those brisk winter days, you'll appreciate how seamlessly the outdoors flow with the warm interior. Expansive windows throughout offer fantastic waterfront views from every room in the house!
Start your vacation mornings by sipping a hot cup of coffee on the deck extending off the living room, while you watch the boats glide over the glassy water. After an eventful day in the great outdoors, come home to unwind in the spacious living room, where you can watch movies on the flat screen TV with DVD player, while you cozy up by the brick fireplace. You may also choose to relax by taking a soak in the double Jacuzzi tub or curling up by the wood burning stove with a good book. For some unique entertainment, challenge your companions to a game of pool. You'll love preparing your favorite home-cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the necessary appliances and cooking tools. On nights when you'd prefer the smoky barbecue flavor, fire up the gas grill and enjoy a cookout on the deck. For dessert, gather around the fire pit and toast marshmallows, while you gaze up at the starry night sky. Once the evening finally comes to a close, you'll be happy to retire to one of the inviting bedrooms, each complete with comfortable sleeping arrangements and a private deck.
This house is only steps from the beach and the Agate Pass, so you'll likely want to spend all your time swimming, kayaking, and fishing. One of your favorite pastimes will become strolling through the forest looking for fresh blackberries. Explore the area further by visiting Bloedel Reserve, as 150-acre forest garden located just around the corner from the house. Additionally, you'll be within easy reach of magnificent state parks, as well as terrific island wineries and breweries. You may also choose to spend the day golfing at one of the pristine golf courses nearby. The kids are sure to love a day spent at the Bainbridge Indoor Aquatic Park. Clearwater Casino and Spa is across the bridge from the house, while downtown Bainbridge is an easy 10-minute drive away and offers movie theatres, fitness centers, great restaurants, and kayak and bike rental shops. While you're here, make sure to venture 10 minutes to downtown Poulsbo, locally known as Danish Town, where you'll find quaint art galleries, specialty shops, and renowned bakeries. Plus, you'll be a convenient 20-minute drive from a shopping mall, Costco, Trader Joes, Best Buy, Bella Bella Cupcakes, and much more within Downtown Silverdale. No matter how you choose to spend time during your stay, this impressive Bainbridge Island vacation rental house will quickly become a place you love returning to at the end of the day!

Great Visit, Beautiful Setting
The house is situated at the end of Bainbridge Island and it is a spectacular location. The property has been in the owner's family since the early 1900's and it is very spacious, homey, and good for kids. There is an amazing grocery store 15 minutes away so we ate all our meals at the house. We had a wonderful stay.
Large Home that Needs Upkeep
Overall this was a great place for a large family gathering. On the beach property.
Ares for improvement
1. Directions. Common complaint and we had to call because we got lost
2. Need whole house water filtration. The water smelled awful due to high sulfur. Could only withstand 2 showers. Couldn't drink the water. Wouldn't do laundry
3. They need to invest about $10k in onetime upkeep. Some kitchenware needs replacement. Outdated furniture. Outdoor safety concerns. One of the kids fell when chair fell apart and they could have been hurt from rusty nail. Life jackets for boat. Cleanup around property is necessary.
Overall it was fine but we spent a lot to stay here and not being able to shower daily was a huge problem.
Thank you very much for the 4-star review, Kedma!
Here are some updates and clarifications regarding the points made in the review:
1. We have revised the directions provided to travelers in order to ensure guests arrive without difficulty
2. A new water filtration system has been installed
3. We have new dining room chairs and new patio furniture. The rowboat is not intended for rental use--this is why no life jackets are provided.
Should anyone have any further questions or concerns regarding the property, please make an inquiry and we will be sure to help you out.

Great location, very well stocked kitchen, fire pit, Jacuzzi tub in master suite, plenty of room.
Great place for a three family vacation. Everything you need is on site.
Great vacation spot for families
The house, beach and view were amazing! We absolutely loved our stay here and would definitely come back.
Cozy place, great for a big group. Incredible views. Equipped with games. The perfect place to unplug and unwind. We had a wonderful time!
Great house for family holiday
Great location and view. Nice areas for eating and socializing. Kids loved having a pool table in the living area! It was perfect for Thanksgiving. Kitchen had everything we needed. On the downside: it was hard to find (directions need updating); code to the door was incorrect and we were locked out for a bit; property manager changes during our stay and was unresponsive; not thoroughly cleaned (moldy coffee maker, dirty carpet); needs some updates/repairs (upstairs shower doesn't work, some shades are broken and don't provide privacy), some new beds were super comfy and others really need new mattresses.
Although this sounds like a lot - we would stay there again. House has tons of charm and was easy to live in. Clearly someone's cherished family vacation spot.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We apologize for the unresponsiveness of the property manager. The homeowner is making necessary changes to avoid any future communication problems. We appreciate your feedback regarding the mattresses, shower, and several cleanliness issues. The homeowner will be replacing old mattresses and immediately addressing the shower. They are also alerting their cleaning crew of the certain items that need attending to. We are glad that you enjoyed your overall stay at this property. We hope you have you travel with us again in the future!
