About Stella

We are a semi-retired couple very active in the community. We have one small 14 year old geriatric dog - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named KC. We are avid travelers, walkers and cyclists. We work part time at a nearby equestrian facility.

Stella purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Stella chose Bainbridge Island

This is our family home of 4000 square feet and we added the apartment in 2011 to share our wonderful view and neighborhood and to have a place for a caretaker when we are too old to maintain our home that we love! For now, we enjoy meeting new friends and sharing this beautiful space in which we live.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy spectacular sunrises almost everyday and the scenery and view is constantly changing from sail boat races, shipping traffic, divers in front of our home to sea birds, eagles, osprey, deer, raccoons etc. We have even seen whales from our home on occasion. Our neighborhood is extremely quiet, safe and beautiful. Walking trails begin just beyond our driveway.

Everything We Hoped for and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

Len and Stella's apartment was perfect! It was very clean (and I am super picky) and was even nicer than the pictures. The apartment was beautifully decorated and the landscaping and foliage were gorgeous. The best part for us was the spectacular view of Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. We met Len the first night and he was very personable and helpful in recommendations for our visit.

We could have stayed a lot longer! No stress at all staying here. We have stayed at several VRBO houses and there was always a list of things to do before you leave, not here. If we ever go back to Seattle, we will stay here again. Absolutely fantastic!!!

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the front deck of the property of the Seattle skyline would be enough to totally recommend this unit. On top of the amazing view you also get a wonderfully equipped and comfortable apartment. The bed was comfortable, there were plenty of towels and the kitchen had everything you would need to cook a meal in style.My husband had work to do and the reliable wifi connection was an added bonus. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. The view and the scenery are exceptional. Stella was so helpful prior to our arrival, with ideas for restaurants and explanations on how to get to and from the ferry. Once we arrived, Len was a warm and gracious host. The only downside was returning to the reality of winter when Seattle and the island showed us such lovely sunshine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future and stay longer.

Most Excellent Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month here. SO Great!

Face: Stella & Len are perfect hosts: considerate, warm, gracious, knowledgeable, interesting, servant-hearted, generous people. They went out of their way to make sure every aspect of our stay was beyond perfect from sharing the bounty of their garden & crab pots, to sharing their love of Bainbridge and all it offers.

Place: a world-class view, Seattle sits like a jeweled crown across the Sound. Hedged by greenery. Waves gently, audibly lapping on the shore below lull you into tranquility. Sailboats & ferries drift by. Wonderful walks nearby. Day trips to hike the Olympic Peninsula, Mt Rainier, explore the San Juan Islands, and Seattle weave a varied fabric of wonderful of activities both urban & remote.

Space: the apartment is homey, pretty, well designed space, offers everything you can ever imagine needing, clean, quiet, restful, private, romantic. The deck is amazing.

Honestly cannot imagine a better experience!

Owner's Response: It was so great to meet you and your family. Thank you for being such generous and considerate guests. You are the champs at exploring the region and taking advantage of the beauty of the Pacific NW. You are also a fine cook and baker!! Thank you for the apple tart which thankfully Len devoured before I got too much!!!. We hope to see you again. Grateful regards!

You Won't Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful days and nights in early June at this beautiful Bainbridge Island retreat. As far as we are concerned, the only drawback is the fact that we did have to eventually leave and return to reality. Stella and Len are considerate, personable hosts who have taken great care in creating a comfortable accommodation. While there's plenty of good restaurants for dining on the island, we were happy to stop at the Town and Country Market (thanks for the recommendation, Stella!) and pick up food to prepare ourselves in the well-equipped kitchen -- and the view is more spectacular than any restaurant! And after a day of exploring the island and enjoying the view of the Seattle skyline across the Sound, we slept soundly in the very comfy bed. We could go on and on, but suffice to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will hope to return again.
