Overview

Bainbridge Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description) 3.5 Baths-Sleeps 6 adults & 2 child

Wonderful low-bank, west facing waterfront home.

This stately 3 Bedroom/3.5 Bath home is surrounded by expansive lawns on three sides and sits upon a private 1 acre+ lot with 150’ of low-bank waterfront. A lighted sport court and serene reflection pond enhance this property, with a 2- person kayak and mooring buoy available for great shoreline activities and exploring.

Why do people who know Bainbridge Island seek out the west side? In one word-sun! When it’s cold and getting dark in most other locations, enjoy the full afternoon sun and late sunsets afforded by staying on the west side. This means more time on the beach or kayaking up and down the shoreline.

Five viewing decks give you many choices for indoor/outdoor living. A spacious covered deck off of the living room is perfect for outdoor dining, game playing, reading or watching the eagles, heron and abundant waterfowl around you.

Gourmet kitchen, specialty slab granite, 6 burner Viking range, prep space with an unbeatable garden and water view. Mahogany island and walk-in pantry. Dishes and flat wear for 12, blender, toaster, microwave and coffee maker.

The beds are outfitted with new mattresses and fine linens. Upper level bathrooms boast marble showers, tub surrounds and floors with in-floor heat.

Just over the hill discover the most dynamic new area of the island-Lynwood Center! Pleasant Beach Village brings elegant shops and dining at the Manor House, with the historic Lynwood Theatre, a small French bakery and yoghurt shop. Also, the Treehouse Café is the best island spot for family dining and offers live music.

You will be surrounded by serene beauty and peacefulness in our home. Fall asleep listening to the gentle lapping of the water beneath your room. Nearby you may enjoy a hike to Gazzam Lake or walks through the Grand Forest or Fort Ward State Park , and just 10 minutes from the main town! A short 35 minute ferry ride delivers you to Seattle and all it offers: Pike Place market, the Seattle Center with Space Needle and Chihuly Exhibit ,the Aquarium and Zoo and much more. It's all here waiting for you!

Please note: Check-in is 4 pm and check-out 10 am. Thank you!

About Joe and Ana Richards

We are both full time Real Estate Brokers with the best company on the Island - Windermere!

Once Bainbridge has captured you, we will be honored to help you find your home to begin living the island lifestyle!

Joe and Ana Richards purchased this house in 2005

Why Joe and Ana Richards chose Puget Sound

The property has over 150' of private waterfront, over an acre of land and the most beautiful setting to watch the sunsets turn into a sky that Maxfield Parrish dreamt of!

What makes this house unique

This property has a magical feel, which we felt when we first visited. The home is sited south by southwest and sits out on a slight promontory allowing views up and down the shoreline. The lovely side yard is accented by a reflection pond and graceful weeping willow tree overlooking the beach.

The 'Starlight Lounge' sits as the upper-most deck - watch the sky move through beautiful shades of blue through twilight into the deep star-studded night.

This is a perfect location offering beauty, nature and privacy.

Exemplary property, great amenities and considerate hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the property and hope to visit again soon! We enjoyed everything about the trip except having to go back to our 100 degree Texas summer at the end. The kitchen had everything needed for preparing meals at home for the family or you can go into town to eat and bring back a bottle of wine to enjoy with the setting sun. Linens, Internet access, shampo etc I can't think of one thing that was missing and if there was... the market in town easily filled any gaps with a seenic 25 min round drive. The available kayak was nice for a relaxing evening row or as exercise (you can row a cross and back in less than an hour). Thank you Ana for sharing your home with us.

Excellent place for a family

  • 5 of 5

Great house with scenic views from almost everywhere and easy access to the water. Almost everyone in the family had their own deck or balcony to use. One thing that was undersold is the basketball court. My 12-year old loved having a place to shoot around while on vacation. Highly recommend the house and the island.

Such a beautiful secluded property.

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The beautiful sunsets and lush flora gave a wonderful sense of northwest paradise.

The only suggestion I would make is that the intensity of the late afternoon sun is such that some windows shades would have come in handy at times.

Outside of tha,t a fabulous time for us. Thank you.

Fabulous house and view

  • 5 of 5

House was immaculate. Comfortable beds. High end appliances. Incredible view. Extended family of 7 stayed 8 days. We all wished we were staying a month. We enjoyed the large bedrooms. I highly recommend this property and hope to return.

Fabulous vacation headquarters

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Ana were the perfect hosts and their gorgeous house the perfect location for our sizable family 4th of July reunion.

Perched above the west-side waterway on Bainbridge Island, the home is literally at the end of the road - lushly green, private and quiet. Yet with easy access to town.

Looking forward to a return visit as soon as possible.

Exceptional - First class all the way

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at 2-3 VRBO rentals a year for several years now. This property is easily the best we've experienced: location, construction, landscaping, layout/amenities/materials/decoration, price, management. Joe and Ana are very unobtrusive, but extremely responsive if you need something. For a good dinner, try the little Thai place at Lynwood Center.
