Why Jerry Gundersen chose Bainbridge Island

Our beach at Point White Guest House is perfectly situated with a view of Puget Sound, Blake Island and the one and only Mount Rainier. It's a quiet place for reading, writing and dreaming, and a fun place for active sports, too.

What makes this cottage unique

Spectacular scenery, wonderful walks, nearby shopping, eating and entertainment, including a historic movie theater from 1936. If you would like to arrive by boat, we can tie you up to our mooring buoy in front of the house. Pleasant Beach Village offers free live music on Summer Tuesdays featuring local artists.

So peaceful and unique!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED how the rental was designed. I mean seriously, how cool is it to have a bed hidden inside a wall?! Almost directly on a beautiful beach, with just a short path separating it. So private and peaceful, and such an easy drive to “downtown”. Communication with the owners was always so quick. They even provided a wonderful gift basket!

Family trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. It was clean and welcoming. The kids loved the bunk beds. Beach was super fun for the kids. We found lots of local places to explore. The only thing we couldn't figure out was getting hot water in the shower but that could have just been user error. 😊

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for visiting and for taking the time to comment. We hope to see you again one day--maybe the sun will make an appearance! Feel free to contact us about specials for repeat guests. The shower control directions are in the welcome booklet, but we should also post them in the bathroom. Doing that now--we appreciate the input.

Beautiful quiet property

  • 5 of 5

I went to Bainbridge Island with my daughter and grandson to visit my son who lives in Seattle. Though we went at the end of March, it still was nice to stay on the island. The home was clean and cozy. It was a studio apartment set up, but since we were family it was fine! We were able to cook with the toaster oven and a hot plate, and there was a small mini fridge. We had a nice TV and access to Netflix and Amazon movies. It was nice to have a washer and dryer available. Communication with owners was prompt. We'd stay there again. I'd love to go in the summer and enjoy the beach area more.

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property had stunning beach access. It was very close to Lynnwood Center for great dining options. It was about 4 or 5 miles from the main Bainbridge Ferry terminal.

The house was well kept and cared for by the owners. We loved the heated floors! There was a gritle to cook on, which was a bonus! The bunk beds were very clean. In addition, the house was very organized and well-laid out!

The owners were super easy to work with throughout the process. They emailed entrance instructions, house information, and island recommendation well ahead of time so I could distribute the information to the other party attending.

Overall, I highly recommend this rental to anyone seeking a relaxing getaway on Bainbridge Island!
