About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rockaway Beach is one of the most exclusive locations on Bainbridge Island. Known for its amazing water front views of the “Emerald City.” This custom built, adult oriented home has more than 5,000 square feet for you to enjoy. The large open floor plan was custom built to maximize the water and city views. Observe whales, seals, sea otters, bald eagles, geese, deer and many other birds and animals. Explore the beach and tide pools to see firsthand why Jacques Cousteau called the Puget Sound the most marine rich body of water in the world. Fish for Coho salmon, Chinook salmon, Sockeye salmon and Dungeness crab from the beach (when in season of course). And if all that sounds like too much work then, you can just relax on the deck and take in the view.

Bainbridge Island

A scenic 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island has rustic charm with quiet country roads and lovely gardens making this a favorite destination. Known for its arts community, Bainbridge has its own Performing Arts Center and Arts & Crafts Gallery featuring regional artists. Enjoy shopping in historic Winslow with its trendy cafes and one of a kind island shops where you can find unusual gifts from the Northwest and beyond. Outdoor enthusiast will enjoy a walk through the Bloedel Reserve, and nature lover's paradise. Other fun outdoor activities include hiking, biking, equestrian trails, golf and tennis. From Bainbridge Island you can cross the Agate Pass Bridge to the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula.

Rockaway Beach

Getting to Rockaway Beach is half the fun. About half way across the Sound, the ferry will turn towards Eagle Harbor. Look for the home with the white fence five houses down from the left. This is where you will be staying. At the end of the scenic drive around Eagle Harbor the road becomes Rockaway Beach the Emerald City will take your breath away. Fight the urge to stop because this is the view waiting for you at The Beach House. As you drive down the tree lined street of Rockaway Beach you will discover why the street is so well known on Bainbridge Island. Drive slowly, look at the amazing properties on the street and keep an eye out for the local residence like deer, raccoons, fox and humans. You are almost home.

The Beach House

When entering the front door, the Seattle skyline sets the tone for this home. Every window, door and mirror is oriented to maximize this unique location. Watch the city change throughout the day. From the morning sun rises to the fiery reflections of the sunsets. The views are constantly changing and there is always something new and different to observe during the day and night. No expense was spared to ensure your comfort inside this home. Professionally decorated, gourmet appointed kitchen, master bath with Jacuzzi and lush 500 tread count linens are just a few features that will make your stay feel like that of a world case spa. There is also a finished basement with Atari cocktail video arcade with 60 Atari games like Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger. There is also a pool table/ping pong table TV and entertainment.

Please be courteous of the neighbors. This is a very quiet street and this is not a party house. You may be on vacation. However, the neighbors are not. All beaches are private property and must be respected.

About David Clemson

I have been a real estate broker for more than 30 years. Rarely do I come across a property as incredible as this one. We knew this was the home for us the moment we open the front door and saw the Seattle skyline. This property is our second home and it is not your typical rental. With that being said, this property is not for everyone. We thoroughly screen our guests to maintain our pride of ownership and to assure our guests the best experience possible.

David Clemson purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

When you are sitting in the living room taking in the view, it feels like you are on a boat looking out at the water.

Just as nice the second time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we stayed at the beach house for our annual family gathering. Another great weekend with all the amenities you could hope for—big well-supplied kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, game room—and always the incredible VIEW! We shall return!

Amazing views & luxury packed home

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property located minutes from Bainbridge’s downtown, nestled at the end of The exclusive Rockaway Beach. Sweeping views of Seattle’s downtown and surrounding mountain ranges while overlooking Puget Sound. Even saw a pod of whales on our last morning. What a memorable stay!

Wonderful vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation home we have rented in years. Frequent VRBO vacation family, we rated this as the BEST vacation rental ever. Beatifull home situated directly on the water. Beautiful rooms and very comfortable. Beds we large and fluffy. There were 2 families that met here in total were 4 adults & 2 children. There was plenty of space to have privacy. However, we enjoyed sitting on the porch the most enjoying the view. The weather was perfect. There is so much to do and plenty to keep us occupied. There is a pool table in basement that was used alot.

The owner was available when we had questions. The kitchen was stocked nicely. we were able to cook our meals and did visit local restaurants too.

Cannot rate this home high enough. You will be very happy here. We were!

Wonderful home...amazing property and views!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we wanted for a family girls getaway. There were 7 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities and amazing views. The beds were very comfortable and the home was decorated beautifully. While we had a lot of rain while being there, we didn’t mind...we sipped our wine while enjoying the fireplace, view, and putting puzzles together. The small town of Winslow, which is close by, was the perfect place to shop, eat and take walks.

The owner, David, was great to talk to and text...the perfect host! Bainbridge is a beautiful island just a short ferry ride from won’t regret staying at this vacation home!

The Beach House on Bainbridge Island, Wa.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you first walk in you are in awe. The sight from the living room across the Puget sound is everlasting. This will be a vacation you will remember forever. The house is very accommodating with all the essentials you will need to enjoy your stay from dining to entertaining. It is very relaxing to read a good book outside on the deck or inside by the fire. There is a nice game room downstairs equipped w/ a pool table which converts into a ping pong table also. Puzzles, board games and video games to be enjoyed by little ones to older adults. The beds are very comfortable and warming and don't forget the beautiful view from the Master bedroom. Many places to visit on the island, hikes in the Grand forest, downtown Winslow for window shopping as well as gourmet dining. Seattle trips are quick and easy via ferry. Highly recommended!

Rockaway Beach is the crown jewel of Bainbridge Island known for its incredible views of Seattle. This amazing custom built waterfront home is just steps from the water. Explore the tide pools, comb the beach, fish for salmon, kayak or scuba diving from the backyard. If all that sounds like too much work, then you can just relax on the deck and watch the ferry’s and sail boats pass buy. Observe otters, seals, eagles, deer, geese, Orca and pilot whales when in season. No expense was spared inside this home either. Every room has been furnished to maximize your comfort and to take in the views. The large master suite in complete with a cozy fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and shower for two. This romantic Rockaway Beach Getaway will keep you coming back for years to come.
