Why diane kurzontkowski chose Bainbridge Island
we found these cottages and the location reminiscent of cape cod where we grew up - "sweep out" cottages, great for a romantic get-away or piling the whole family in. We love the location, warm in the summer protected from the northern winds, southwestern exposure for lovely sunsets. We like being able to walk 1 block to the movie theatre, bakery/deli, morning latte, 3 restaurants and a small grocery store. Our favorite activities include hiking and biking from the cottages.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottages are so close to Seattle, a 35 minute ferry ride, but a world apart. Step back in time to your own classic cottages!

Comfortable! Clean with beautiful view!
The Most adorable CLEAN cabin ! We loved it!!
Gorgeous views, comfy beds, quality bedding, well-stocked kitchen, extra towels, perfect location -- walking distance from a cool, old movie theatre and some very good restaurants...and did I say, gorgeous views?! You can tell that this property is loved and well-cared for -- exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, and very functional throughout. What a relaxing and fun place to be!
Could not have been closer to what i hoped for! The beach, the porch, the beds, the space, the location, the fire pit......all perfect!
Pleasant Beach Cottages are beyond pleasant. This beautifully appointed space is simple, functional and lovely, with a view of the water that can't be beat. Love it.
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here. We feel like nature does most of the work for us - and glad you were able to appreciate the beachfront location and simplicity of the cottage. Come back again soon!

Beautiful piece of waterfront property with well-maintained lawn that slopes gently to the water. Great photo opportunities each day as the Seattle- Bremerton ferry sails by almost hourly. The house is a cute place, clean, nicely decorated, and has an adequately-equipped kitchen. The bed in the main bedroom was extremely comfortable. The house seems to be poorly insulated, though, and is quite drafty, so it is not so good for a winter-time rental. I was able to stay warm while I was there by keeping the thermostat turned up, but the furnace ran almost continually. The antique claw-foot tub in the bathroom looks cute, but special care must be taken climbing in and out for showering as there are no hand-holds or grab bars - so renters who are in the "senior" age bracket should just be aware of this potential hazard. Despite these criticisms, I would highly recommend this place as a summer rental for anyone who enjoys a gorgeous spot on the water.
So glad you enjoyed our waterfront cottage and the comforts within! As you may have noticed, we have several new windows (in the kitchen and dining room) and will continue to replace more for better insulation. In the meantime, cozy down comforters and a good heating system will hopefully do the job. Hope to have you back in the summer or any time !
Perfect Girlfriend Retreat
Our girls trip was made even more special by staying in the Pleasant Beach Cottage. The views are spectacular, gorgeous grounds, the cottage is clean and cozy, and it's location perfect and so quiet! Never tired of watching the ferry.
Diane, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and very personable. We appreciated the list of things in town....just a short walk away.
Definitely looking forward to booking again! Thanks for sharing your amazing property, Diane!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! It does indeed make a great girls get away. I always figure almost anything that works for a couple can work for a couple of gilfriends: wine bar, beach walks, shopping (maybe better for the girls get away!). We've even had working mini-retreats here. We look forward to your visiting Pleasant Beach Cottages again.
Bainbridge Island is rich in the arts, has fantastic restaurants and wineries and great biking and hiking right outside the door of the cottages. Bainbridge Island is located a short 35 minute ferry ride from Downtown Seattle.
