Bainbridge Island Beach Cottage With Spectacular Sound, Mountain & Sunset Views

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Located on a half acre beach-front estate, this charming two-level cottage is the perfect beach retreat for a couple or small family. Use it as a base to kayak Bainbridge Island's rugged coastline, explore the harbor, walk the beaches, or visit some of our local farms and vineyards. Then come home and relax as you watch the sun sink over the snow-capped Olympic Mountains in a swirl of oranges, pinks, and purples that mark the end of another excellent day in our little slice of paradise.

The cottage is located on a woodsy dead-end country lane that sees more neighbors walking their dogs than vehicle traffic. The downstairs features a bedroom with a cozy antique double bed, large closet, full bathroom, and washer/dryer. Upstairs is a comfortable living room with a queen sofa-bed, a well-stocked kitchen, and two more closets. On the side of the cottage is a small patio with table, chairs, and a gas grill where you can watch the sunset and enjoy our warm summer evenings. Parking is in front of the cottage and public transportation just two blocks away.

Two houses down you'll find public access to a trail and stairs down to our secluded beach, where you can enjoy picnics, beach-combing, or just watching the eagles soar and the otters frolic.

We have a single and a tandem kayak that you are welcome to use with advance notice.

About Tamar Lowell

We are a family of four that loves to travel. We often use VRBO for our own adventures, including recent trips to Costa Rica, Greece and Thailand. We live in the main house on the property and are available to help you with anything you might need.

Tamar Lowell purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Tamar Lowell chose Puget Sound North

We fell in love with Bainbridge Island the first time we visited, and bought this property just four months later. We love being on the water with sunset views, boats sailing by, and wildlife all around.

What makes this cottage unique

We especially love this part of the island because it faces west and you get the sunsets over the snow-capped Olympic mountains and Puget Sound. Boats sail by year-round, and if you're on the beach and you look to the south you can see the ferry crossing from Seattle to Bermerton. Deer and raccoon visit regularly to munch on the blackberries, otters play in the water, and eagles and geese fly by daily. The beach is secluded and peaceful, and chances are you will be the only one on it!

Nice view, small bed and low ceilings

  • 3 of 5

We were frustrated by the tiny bed and uncomfortable sofa bed option. I am 6' tall and kept bumping my head on the low ceiling. It would be nice to have somewhere to sit other than the sofa bed. Great kitchen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for visiting our cottage. I'm glad you enjoyed the beautiful view and the well-stocked kitchen. I'm so sorry about your frustration. Most of our guests have found the cottage and our furniture to be very comfortable, especially the bed, the sofa, and the fun double armchair downstairs. You are quite right that the bed is not big. The antique double bed has loads of charm, but those wishing for a queen or king sized bed might be more comfortable elsewhere. Although it is listed in the cottage profile as a double bed, I will see if there is any way to make that more clear for future guests. The ceiling height is a legacy of 1940s construction. The upstairs ceiling is 8 feet high, and the downstairs ceiling is 6' 9" high. There is a single beam that is 6 feet high. I'm sorry to hear that you bumped your head on it! Thank you again for your feedback. I wish you all the best on your next visit to Bainbridge Island.

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to find that the pictures did not exaggerate this wonderful location. We thought we would sit outside more, but the view from the couch just couldn't be beat! This is a great location, 10-15 from the ferry to Seattle and the town of Bainbridge.

The owner, Tamar, gave us a sheet of information on things to do in the area. We tried several of the restaurants, we especially liked the Harbor Pub and of course, Mora Ice Cream!

We used the kayaks available at the house and also took a sealife kayak tour of Blakely Harbor with Exoctic Aqautics Kayaking and Scuba.

We found that some trips to Seattle were easier if we left our car on Bainbridge instead of taking it on the ferry. It's very easy to just walk into downtown Seattle.

The peace and quiet of this location was wonderful! It was very hard to leave.

Thank you Tamar!

Wonderful view of the water, very quiet. The beach is right down the street and the cottage is great

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental. In addition to the nice views, the furniture was new and clean. It is solely a rental, so you don't feel like you are staying in someone's house. The kitchen was fully stocked (other stays with vrbo have not included olive oil and basalmic vinegar in the cabinets, those type of amenities improved my stay).

I would give it 6 stars if there was a hot tub

Scenic Views and Great Cottage Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We has such an enjoyable stay on Bainbridge Island! Tamar and her family are tremendous hosts, going out of their way to accommodate us after a small booking hiccup. We were greeted personally by Tamar, and were provided loads of great advice ranging from the best tourist visits, and restaurants to grocery stores and beaches. They even loaned us kayaks for a remarkable paddle around the area! The roomy cottage is very comfortable for a family of four, with well stocked kitchen amenities, new appliances, comfy beds and a private patio. We would highly recommend a visit to this property.
