Recent Bainbridge Island reviews

  • Something different, in a good way

    "We stayed at this Japanese-style bed-and-breakfast ryokan for two nights. It was the perfect start to our trip to the US, and particularly appropriate as the reason for our coming was for my wife to expand her knowledge of Japanese braiding at an international conference in Tacoma. If you like all things Japanese, or just want to experience a traditional Japanese lifestyle without having to travel to Japan then you will enjoy staying here. It was quite straightforward getting to Bainbridge Island from Seatac, although the ferry was quite busy when we arrived at the Ferry Dock in Seattle, so we had to wait 40 minutes for the next ferry. When you arrive at Fuurin-Oka you walk through a small bamboo grove to the house, and in Japanese style remove you shoes at the entrance. I needn't describe the interior of the house as the website shows how it is. We enjoyed sitting and looking at the Japanese garden, which looks as though it was planted decades ago. A highlight is the bathroom, and there are clear instructions about what you need to do. All the accessories, bodywash, shampoo, buckets, etc are genuine Japanese products. We loved it. The futons were very comfortable. Renee provides a wonderful Japanese breakfast in the morning. It was "ooishi". She is clearly an enthusiastic cook, using ingredients from her own garden. There are plenty of places to eat within 10-15 minutes of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and, if you want to experience something out of the ordinary, you will love it too. Given the chance we would return in a heartbeat."

  • The property is spacious, modern and ideal for a visit to Bainbridge.

    "We were able to walk to the restaurants by the waterfront and enjoy the restaurants, even with a late check-in. Walking distance to the ferry and to the main street in Bainbridge with many shops and art galleries. The owner was super friendly and helpful. We were able to use their kayaks and launch right at their backyard. Very private and much larger than it appears in the pictures. We were welcomed with the most amazing fudge, what a nice surprise! We will definitely encourage others to stay here."

  • The house is everything that was presented in the pictures on line.

    "We spent 6 nights at The Beach House and hated to leave. The home is well equipped and beds are very comfortable. The view is worth every penny! Very peaceful surroundings and loved staying there. The owner did supply us with fresh oysters and they were amazing...would go back again for sure. 8/26/16"
