About the property

4 Br, 4.5 Ba, 4000 Sq Ft, Huge Deck, Steps To Sandy Beach, All Day Sunshine

A stunning Pleasant Beach setting, just steps to the sandy beach, lively shops and restaurants with four bedrooms (including three master suites)!

Welcome to the “Gold Coast” of Bainbridge Island. Our home is west-facing and just literally steps to the sandy Puget Sound beach. Summer in Seattle is generally quite spectacular, with long days of sunshine, warm temperatures and little or no rain. Our home is located right on the water with the beach literally at your feet. In contrast to the east side of Bainbridge, the west side of the Island is drenched in abundant summertime sunshine and is sheltered from the prevailing afternoon winds.

Sit on our deck with a drink in hand and marvel at the tranquility, the beauty and the ever-changing waterfront scenery as boats and wildlife pass by. Go for a beach walk, where you might spot deer on the beach, eagles diving for fish, harbor seals and even sea lions. Swim, fish, wade or snorkel in the shallow waters. Use our two kayaks to explore the coastline - or, try our Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) . Enjoy a dessert wine by the evening campfire of our beach-side fire pit watching the stars twinkling overhead and the moonbeams dancing off the water. Of course you can always enjoy a water-side barbecue or relax anytime on our large deck. Every luxury, need and convenience is found at our Pleasant Beach Villa!

If you want to get out of the house, we are located just a short stroll next to the lively and quaint Lynwood Center. At Lynwood Center you will find five restaurants, one of the Islands most popular pubs with local micro-brews on tap, a movie theater, a frozen yogurt shop, a wine bar featuring many European wines, a massage/spa facility, a hairstylist, a bakery with daily fresh selections, a grocery store, a music and guitar shop and other shopping experiences.

Enjoy cooking in our gourmet kitchen and eating outside (weather permitting), or not. Everything from a morning latte, fresh bread and rolls, full breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner is a just a short stroll away. If there's a better location on the Island, we haven't found it yet!

Our Pleasant Beach Villa was constructed in 2011 and is built just steps from the water. At night you can lay awake in bed in any of the three waterside bedrooms with the fully-screened windows open and listen to the waves lapping the beach. Or, if it’s a chilly night, snuggle up to the fireplace in the master bedroom.

The double eight foot entry French doors open to a Carrara marble foyer with a striking view all the way to the water. The open floor plan carries you past the formal dining room, the gourmet kitchen and the breakfast/lunch nook into the living room with its soaring, 18-foot, boxed beam ceiling and 18-foot slate stone fireplace. Extensive amounts of hardwood, including Brazilian cherry, plus marble and slate cover the floors. The main floor also includes a utility room which contains a washer and dryer and granite-covered counter tops.

Completing the downstairs main floor is one guest bedroom with a queen-size bed, its own double French door access to the deck and its own en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The bathroom includes a dual shower-head shower, floor-to-ceiling marble and granite shower walls and a double sink, marble vanity. The kitchen is modern, with granite counter tops a kitchen island and all-stainless steel appliances. Furnished appliances include juice squeezer, espresso machine, coffee maker, double-oven, microwave, gas cook top, dishwasher, instant-hot water dispenser, garbage disposal and reverse osmosis drinking water system. With our reverse osmosis system, you are assured copious amounts of sweet, pure drinking water to drink directly or fill your water bottles.

The house also has central air conditioning and central heat. While it is a rare day in Seattle when A/C is needed, it is very nice to have for the two or three weeks of hot weather that we can get every summer!

All en suite bathrooms have heated tile floors and a hot water re-circulation loop that delivers instant hot water to every faucet. There is a 56” television in the living room. Of course the house has WI-Fi throughout, plus most rooms are hard-wired with Cat-5 Ethernet cable for even faster speeds.

The upstairs floor contains the master bedroom furnished with a king-size bed and with its own en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The master bedroom has double French doors that open to its own spacious balcony overlooking the water and a private gas fireplace. The master bathroom is finished in marble and includes a two-person shower and jetted tub. There are two other bedrooms located on the second floor at the opposite end of the house for maximal privacy. Bedroom #3 comes with a queen-size bed and its own en suite bathroom with dual vanities, a walk-in closet and double French door access to its own private balcony. Bedroom #4 has a queen size bed and its own private bathroom with a tub. All bathrooms in the house are finished in marble, granite and/or limestone. Completing the upper floor is the piano room, another utility room with a second washer and dryer and a workout room furnished with a Soloflex, dumbbells and an elliptical machine.

Our guide book details the many restaurants, wineries, the local brewery and distillery, hikes, parks, shops and other fun and interesting things to do on Bainbridge and nearby. The house is in a residential beach-side community about 7 minutes by car to the ferry terminal. As Bainbridge Island is an actual island, all trips into Seattle are by ferry, which is a 35 minute ride. The ferries accommodate vehicles and walk-on passengers, so a car can also be driven onto the ferry. Washington State operates the largest ferry system in the US. Traveling by ferry is a unique and wonderful experience and a great way to see the surroundings from the water. When leaving the Island to go to Seattle, you arrive at the ferry terminal in the heart of Seattle's waterfront, so it is very convenient to ride the ferry to Seattle and walk to the shops, restaurants, sports stadiums, theaters, etc.

The house is furnished with extensive art work and is warm and inviting. There is absolutely no way you will be disappointed with either the location, the setting or the house! Bainbridge Island was rated the number two most desirable city in the US by Money Magazine several years ago. There is always the risk that you will fall in love with Bainbridge and want to move here yourself, like so many of us have done!

Please note that the house is offered strictly as a vacation rental and not a party or event house. If you are visiting Bainbridge Island and you looking for a beautiful, relaxing, tranquil waterfront setting, this is the place for you. Also, as noted above, the house has three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (one with king bed and two with queen beds, plus a fourth bedroom with a queen bed, so the house comfortably accommodates four couples.

*** NOTE *** We have a strict limit of eight people (adults plus children) maximum, so if your group size exceeds eight, this house is not suitable. When booking please make sure you download the RENTAL AGREEMENT using the link shown in the booking form. You are required to execute the the Rental Agreement in order to rent this property.

If you are visiting Bainbridge Island for a wedding, our home is conveniently across the street from the Manor House and a five minute drive to IslandWood, which are popular for wedding venues.

Thank you,

- Jill and Henry

About Henry Warner

Jill and Henry are retired and enjoy boating and traveling. We spend the winters in Arizona and the summers on our live-aboard boat.

Henry Warner purchased this house in 2011

Why Henry Warner chose Bainbridge Island

Gorgeous setting, peaceful, tranquil. Close to everything. We custom-built this house in 2011, so it is rather new and furnished with many conveniences. We especially like the instant-hot water feature. There is never any waiting for the shower water to heat up!

What makes this house unique

One never gets tired of the waterfront views and activities! Old Chinese proverb: He who lives on the water lives twice.

The property was hands down the best house we have ever rented. Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful house in a fantastic location. Fully furnished, especially the kitchen with everything you could need to have a relaxing vacation. Added bonus for us was nice weather and we were able to kayak on 2 evenings in mid Oct

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jesse and Diane, for your gracious words! We are, of course, delighted to hear that the house worked so well for you and your family. You timed the weather well for an October visit. Two days after you left we had quite a little storm that knocked power out for half the day. We were especially appreciative of the care and effort you made to leave the house in such good condition - thank you! - Jill and Henry

Gorgeous Home with Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

In all the years we have rented homes this is by far the nicest home and with the most fantastic views of Puget Sound and every single amenity you can possibly think of. I was looking for some BBQ tools and found an oyster shucking knife and a glove to go with it! I brought my own, but it was indicitive of the detail Henry and Jill provide to make sure their guests are not left wanting anything. And that was certainly the case here.

The separate bedroom suites for our group was perfect for everyone along with laundry facilities top and bottom. The BBQ got a good work out as did the nice comfortable deck furniture. And we had a mild heat wave ( 90 degrees!) while we were there so the paddle boards and kayaks got quite a workout until 9pm because it stays light for so long. And then watching the tides go in and out and exploring the tide pools was fun for the kids and adults as well.

The house location makes visiting Seattle by ferry ( why would you go any other way?) very nice as well. Just can't get enough Ferris Wheel rides for the young ones. And you can walk up to the little village and enjoy the food and drink offered there as well.

So if you are looking for a fantastic water home in the Pacific North West, with every amenity imaginable, then look no further- this is your place that is being graciously shared by Henry and Jill.

This is a beautiful home.The view out on the water was lovely and it was great fun to watch the birds especially the kingfisher! We were a group of seven and there was plenty of space to gather together or find solitude. There were many amenities. Extremely comfortable.

Ideal Waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious home conveniently located with excellent view of Puget Sound and Seattle in the distance. So enjoyable to watch the wildlife and the ferries coming in and out!The house is well designed and appointed with 4 bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, an attached deck with table/chairs and a separate beachfront patio with firepit right in the water. A great feature is that the house is located within walking distance to a small town with stores, bakery, coffee shop and restaurants. A fifteen minute drive to the Seattle ferry and downtown Bainbridge with numerous attractions. Would highly recommend .

Amazing home for groups or families!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home situated right on the water, walking distance to Lynwood and a short drive to the ferry suited our group's needs perfectly! The home's lovely deck and outdoor space was an added bonus. We were a group of 7 with plenty of beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and dining space for all of us. Our host was attentive to our group's needs and provided all the local info we needed on the area. I would highly recommend this home for a group or family of 7-8 people. We had a great week on Bainbridge Island and renting this particular home was ideal.
