About Michelle Linquist

The view of Seattle and Mt. Rainier stole our hearts during our dating years and we just never tire of the area. It's heaven on earth for nature lovers! We hope to someday retire on BI and spend every minute here! In the meantime, we enjoy sharing this wonderful peaceful home with fellow vacationers.

Michelle Linquist purchased this House in 2015

Why Michelle Linquist chose Bainbridge Island

Secluded enough to provide a peaceful and rejuvenating vacation yet with the conveniences of being only minutes from downtown BI and the Seattle ferry you won't be disappointed. The view is unforgettable!

What makes this House unique

Sitting on over an acre, the Beach House has plenty of room for outdoor play and exercise for little ones or you can just enjoy each other's company or the company of friends lounging on the outdoor deck while enjoying the view of the Seattle skyline, Puget Sound traffic, the Cascades and Mt. Rainier. If you're lucky, you'll even see the whales passing through!

                                                              Our first night we stayed in, turned out all the lights and took in the views of waterfront/downtown Seattle. The house was architecturally one of a kind and flawlessly comfortable down to the last detail. I wish the weather had been better so we could have enjoyed the gardens more. Stellar, even in winter. Wondering when we should go back.hummm...

                                                              The house is beautiful and the views are breathtaking (provided the weather is clear).

                                                              A View You'll Want to Take Home With You

                                                              The view of the Seattle Skyline took our breath away the minute we walked into this house. Mount Rainier is visible on clear days and adds to the panoramic view. The house is very comfortable with a large living room, game room, and kitchen. The dining room table and chairs are made of beautifully carved wood. Even though the Seahawks lost, we enjoyed watching the game on the large screen TV in the downstairs area. Our family of 8 found the house very livable and comfortable. It is ideally located just over a mile from the ferry, yet secluded in a quiet neighborhood. Michelle was wonderful to work with. She answered our questions promptly and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely rent this house again for our next family gathering.

                                                              Great house for family vacation

                                                              We spent Thanksgiving 2017 at the Beach House and loved the house and its amenities. There were a couple of minor issues with visiting pests, which was not alarming to us as we are former Bainbridge Island residents and understand what it means to live in the woods. Michelle addressed our problems as well as possible during our stay. We would definitely return.

                                                              Delightful stay!

                                                              Bainbridge Island has become one of our favorite destinations and we enjoyed returning with friends this time. We have had several rentals on our visits, but this is the grandest property so far!

                                                              Michelle and Todd were very easy to deal with and everything went well. The house, the decor, the property and the view were all outstanding! We were lucky enough to have beautiful sunshiny days so trips to Bloedel Reserve, Olympic National Park, and ferry trips to explore Seattle were all perfect. We truly had a delightful stay and look forward to returning in the near future. We would highly recommend this property.

                                                              Perfect house

                                                              Clean and comfortable. Spectacular views. Great island.


                                                              Bainbridge Island, WA, USA

                                                              Enjoy a peaceful walk down madrona drive (featured in 'Walks on Bainbridge' by Dave and Alice Shorett!) or take in the breathtaking water and mountain views from the 2nd story deck, the Beach House provides a peaceful and rejuvenating get away for couples or families. Just minutes from the Bainbridge ferry and downtown Bainbridge, fine dinners, shopping, outings with little ones to the park or water are endless. Heart and Soul, a wonderful pottery shop that provides endless fun times of pottery painting or fusing glass with little ones, also provides a parent's night out opportunity on select Saturdays. Our favorite restaurants include Cafe Nola, Hitchcock's and Streamliner Cafe. Westside Pizza is great for a pizza night delivery!
