1 Bdrm Very Private Premium Beach Suite, Stunning Views & Closest to Downtown

Bedrooms 1
Space 750 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

ENORMOUS BEACH & SUN ALL DAY. STUNNING VIEWS of Mt. Rainier, Olympics, Sound and Eagle Harbor. Five minutes by car or bus (regular morning/evening schedule or order ahead) to ferry and downtown Winslow or short walk/bike ride.

Your suite is approximately 700 sq. ft. and consists of a spacious separate bedroom with a roomy walk-in closet; living room with a sofa group, TV cabinet and a woodstove; a good sized kitchen with a dining table that can sit 6 people and double up as your office table; a full bath. You have a queen bed in the separate bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room for comfortable sleeping of 4 adults. If you need to fit in some children there is also a fold-out full size bed (can even fit inside walk-in closet) and a fold-out baby crib.

Your waterfront beach suite is within the Wing Point Community, which is one of the most established neighborhoods on Bainbridge Island centered around Bainbridge’s only 18 hole golf course. You have a lawn outside your double french doors that has a fantastic view of both Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains, the Sound with ships passing by as far as the eye can see and Eagle Harbor with the ferry and lots of boats jetting in and out.

A 50 step staircase leads to your beach area where you can watch the gorgeous sunset over the Olympics from the comfortable beach furniture while you are enjoying your BBQ meal or borrow our kayaks for a ride. Or you can walk on the large beach for miles at low tide including to the ferry or downtown and play on the beach that goes out over 300 yards to sandy areas at low tide where you can almost touch the ferry when it passes by! After dark you can warm yourself in front or your beach fireplace.

With its South facing exposure you have sun virtually the entire day. It’s a very cozy, high quality, light and secure suite with its own private entrance comprising the entire lower level of a gorgeous house where the owners live off and on and is so very private and soundproof that usually you won't hear us and we won't hear you. You can light up the cozy woodstove, watch any of over 200 channels on a 32' HD flat screen with DirecTV satellite, record any program on your DVR for easy viewing at your own convenience, order your own Pay-Per-View movie, watch a movie on the VCR or DVD, listen to a music CD on the boombox or snuggle up with a good book (we have a good inventory of each item). You can always stay in touch through the wireless fast broadband internet access and nationwide free telephone. Cook a gourmet meal on the gas stove (or the BBQ outside) in the large kitchen.

You can drive in 4 minutes or walk 25 minutes to charming downtown Winslow and the ferry, take a bus to 5 morning ferries and back from 5 evening ferries or call ahead to take a bus to/from anywhere on the island. This is an ideal spot for relaxing, visit with friends and family, explore our beautiful island including use as a stop during boating, live while remodeling or looking for a new house. Or use our suite as a beautiful home base for a Seattle business or social visit since it is within very convenient distance to the ferry like many daily commuters on our island do since they can combine a city work life with great island home life. You can stay for a couple of nights or an extended stay and we have complimentary coffee and tea waiting for you. Small weddings with officiant, witnesses and photographer can be arranged at an extra costs.

It is easy to book on-line, we send a very detailed Confirmation email with transportation tips, very easy access instructions and what to do on the island. Once you arrive in your suite we also have very detailed instructions how to operate everything in your suite and a detailed guide of restaurants, bars and everything else to do in the neighborhood.

About Jenny or Claes Hagstromer

We love this location on Bainbridge Island because it is so close to downtown while still rural, private, great Puget Sound and mountain views and only 50 steps to our beach. We love hiking on any of the over 30 trails on the island. Jenny and Claes

Jenny or Claes Hagstromer purchased this house in 2001

Why Jenny or Claes Hagstromer chose Bainbridge Island

Bainbridge Island is the best location to stay at if you want to be close to downtown Seattle but away from the hustle and bustle downtown and at a better price!

What makes this house unique

Go to sleep to the soothing sound of the waves in the well regarded Wing Point neighborhood with a 18 hole golf course nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay in your vacation space. What a great find! I will always remember the scene from the windows. You should see how many pictures I took of the area. The neighborhood is beautiful. I think I must have awoken every morning and went out to see the ferry and your beautiful gardens.

We will be back when we visit Seattle again. We also fell in love with Bainbridge Island. It was a perfect stay.

Perfect quaint suite for girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

Could not ask for a better location or a better view. My best friend and I celebrated turning 40 with a girls only get-a-way. While the pictures are extremely accurate, we were blown away by the view upon arrival. The most beautiful Seattle sunset with the marina in the distance and ferry slowly cruising by. The suite was quaint and perfectly for the two of us. The bed was super comfortable, could even hear the waves lapping softly in the early morning. While it ended up being a typical wet NW weekend, we enjoyed long walks exploring the golf course, neighborhood wooded trails, nearby housing developments (dreams), and of course the beach. We did not pay attention to the tide and were super fortunate to enjoy a glass of wine (thank you for plastic wine glasses) on the beach during a break from the rain.

Hope to come back again in summer to enjoy the beautiful backyard and kayaks.

Owner's Response: We have upgraded the pictures since your visit to be even more accurate and maybe give future guests an even better picture how magic our location is with the only view on Bainbridge Island of Mt Rainier, the Olympic mountains AND the ferry/boats coming in and out of Eagle Harbor! And still only 4 minutes from downtown Winslow and the ferry dock. So glad you liked the bed since we constantly replace the mattress and provide a deluxe topper that guests can add or delete since everybody has a different taste in beds. And so glad that you appreciate that there is always something fun to to do on our beautiful island all year round with great restaurants, bars, shops downtown or stay home with a comfortable kitchen, crackling woodstove fire indoors or a beach rock fireplace!

Just like the Photos, Cozy, Clean and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in this quiet, relaxing little abode. The bed was deliciously comfortable and warm as was the rest of the unit. Loved the warmth of the sunny yellow walls and the eclectic furnishings. We enjoyed being right on the water and watching the ferries pass. With windows open you can hear the water lapping on shore. Since it was Winter, we built toasty crackling fires each evening. Stairs outside the patio led directly to the beach below and we walked down to watch the sun setting across Eagle Harbor. Owners Jenny and Claes are warm and friendly and were genuinely concerned about our well-being and comfort. I appreciated them reaching out shortly after our arrival to check in that all was okay. A short drive to town offered us many shopping and restaurant options. We loved our time spent here and would absolutely come back and rent again...preferably during warmer months to really enjoy this fabulous location and all it has to offer.

Beautiful space with incredible views. We enjoyed the walk from the ferry & bicycling around town. The owners were very easy to work with. The community is very beautiful. We loved our short stay & wish we could have stayed longer.

A perfect place for relaxation and renewal. Gorgeous location on the harbor with abundant birds, an occational seal sighting with ferries silently gliding in and out of the harbor. Apartment clean, with comfy bed and thoughtful decor. Highly recommended for those who desire a quiet retreat on the water with access to kyaks, walks on the shore and a homey environment. Hosts live upstairs and were immediately available as needed. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Those are the benefits we try hard to offer while being the beach lodging closest to downtown Winslow and the ferry on our island. You can take a bus, a $7 taxi, 4 minute in your own car, walk 20 minute on the roads or 15 minutes along beach!

The views were spectacular day and night, always something to look at.

  • 4 of 5

The landscaping was very relaxing and private. It was very nice to have the table and umbrella on the beach. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Kayaks. Which was the main reason we rented this home.

Owner's Response: Yes, we work hard to be an amazing place and are elated when our valued guests agree! There is no better place to be than on the beach during warm summer days and nights with wildlife all around us. Personally, we also love stormy and rainy winter days with a crackling fire inside, so cozy! And still within 4 minutes by car to fabolous restaurants, bars, coffee stores, bakeries and lots of cultural events. If not enough, Seattle is only 30 minutes by ferry!
