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.
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.
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

Perfect for a Classy Getaway
This house was gorgeous - that VIEW! It's perfect for a group gathering: just about 12 minutes from the ferry so it was very convenient for everyone and we could easily pop over to Winslow for shopping or eating out. The house is very spacious and incredibly well appointed. The kitchen had everything we could need and more and we enjoyed cooking during our stay. Each room is very tastefully decorated and spacious. Beds were comfortable, linens and the house overall were all impeccably cared for and very clean. I would absolutely stay here again!
Beautiful house, amazing view, living the island life
We had a great time with our adult children and four grandchildren in this beautiful home with spectacular views. Elegant and clean but also warm and comfortable, room for everyone. The game room was a huge hit with kids and adults alike and it was great to pull out with the kayaks at any spontaneous moment. The rocks and tidal pools at low tide were super, great birdwatching, sunrises and an ever-changing view of the water, sky and Seattle cityscape. A couple of minor unexpected issues were immediately addressed by the owner and, as a result, did not slow us down one bit in fully enjoying our vacation. He is indeed extremely responsive as others have noted. Recommend the nearby rock climbing place in Coppertop complex, the kayak rental Exotic Aquatic who deliver onsite and a visit to the lovely Bloedel Reserve. Lots of good eateries in the area. The house was easy to drive to from the efficient ferry system. My last thought is that the interior space is so well designed that we felt like we were fully engaged with everyone and yet enjoying private space at the same time... and always...the million dollar view!
Beautiful holiday weekend at a perfect location
Well stocked gourmet kitchen, comfortable beds, gorgeous views, lovely hikes nearby, convenient ferry from Seattle. Loved it all!
Amazing views & luxury packed home
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!
Just as nice the second time!
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!
Wonderful home...amazing property and views!
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 Seattle...you won’t regret staying at this vacation home!
