Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Bainbridge Island - Abode On The Sea

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

ENORMOUS BEACH & SUN ALL DAY. STUNNING VIEWS of Mt. Rainier, Olympics, Sound and Eagle Harbor. Five minutes by car or bus to ferry and downtown Winslow or a short walk/bike ride.

Your suite is approximately 700 sq. ft. and consists of a spacious separate bedroom with a roomy walk-in closet; living room with a sofa group, TV cabinet and a woodstove; a good sized kitchen with a dining table that can sit 6 people and double up as your office table; a full bath. You have a queen bed in the separate bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room for comfortable sleeping of 4 adults. If you need to fit in some children there is also a fold-out full size bed and a fold-out baby crib.

Your waterfront beach suite is within the Wing Point Community, which is one of the most established neighborhoods on Bainbridge Island centered around Bainbridge’s only 18 hole golf course. You have a lawn outside your double french doors that has a fantastic view of both Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains, the Sound with ships passing by as far as the eye can see and Eagle Harbor with the ferry and lots of boats jetting in and out.

A 50 step staircase leads to your beach area where you can watch the gorgeous sunset over the Olympics from the comfortable beach furniture while you are enjoying your BBQ meal or borrow our kayaks for a ride. Or you can walk on the large beach for miles at low tide including to the ferry or downtown and play on the beach that goes out over 300 yards to sandy areas at low tide where you can almost touch the ferry when it passes by! After dark you can warm yourself in front or your beach fireplace.

With its South facing exposure you have sun virtually the entire day. It’s a very cozy, high quality, light and secure suite with its own private entrance comprising the entire lower level of a gorgeous house where the owners live off and on and is so very private and soundproof that usually you won't hear us and we won't hear you. You can light up the cozy woodstove, watch any of over 200 channels on a 32' HD flat screen with DirecTV satellite, record any program on your DVR for easy viewing at your own convenience, order your own Pay-Per-View movie, watch a movie on the VCR or DVD, listen to a music CD on the boombox or snuggle up with a good book (we have a good inventory of each item). You can always stay in touch through the wireless fast broadband internet access and nationwide free telephone. Cook a gourmet meal on the gas stove (or the BBQ outside) in the large kitchen.

You can drive in 4 minutes or walk 25 minutes to charming downtown Winslow and the ferry, take a bus to 5 morning ferries and back from 5 evening ferries or call ahead to take a bus to/from anywhere on the island. This is an ideal spot for relaxing, visit with friends and family, explore our beautiful island including use as a stop during boating, live while remodeling or looking for a new house. Or use our suite as a beautiful home base for a Seattle business or social visit since it is within very convenient distance to the ferry like many daily commuters on our island do since they can combine a city work life with great island home life. You can stay for a couple of nights or an extended stay and we have complimentary coffee and tea waiting for you. Small weddings with officiant, witnesses and photographer can be arranged at an extra costs.

It is easy to book on-line, we send a very detailed Confirmation email with transportation tips, very easy access instructions and what to do on the island. Once you arrive in your suite we also have very detailed instructions how to operate everything in your suite and a detailed guide of restaurants, bars and everything else to do in the neighborhood.

About Jenny or Claes Hagstromer

We love this location on Bainbridge Island because it is so close to downtown while still rural, private, great Puget Sound and mountain views and only 50 steps to our beach. We love hiking on any of the over 30 trails on the island. Jenny and Claes

Jenny or Claes Hagstromer purchased this house in 2001

Why Jenny or Claes Hagstromer chose Puget Sound

Bainbridge Island is the best location to stay at if you want to be close to downtown Seattle but away from the hustle and bustle downtown and at a better price!

What makes this house unique

Go to sleep to the soothing sound of the waves in the well regarded Wing Point neighborhood with a 18 hole golf course nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay in your vacation space. What a great find! I will always remember the scene from the windows. You should see how many pictures I took of the area. The neighborhood is beautiful. I think I must have awoken every morning and went out to see the ferry and your beautiful gardens.

We will be back when we visit Seattle again. We also fell in love with Bainbridge Island. It was a perfect stay.

Wonderful location, beautiful view. Charming cottage that needs some updating.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks and really enjoyed it. Their location, with the magnificent view of Eagle Harbor and the ferry, as well as closeness to downtown Winslow, is outstanding. The charm of the cottage was appreciated, however there are areas that could stand some upgrading, such as carpeting in the bedroom; the flooring in the living room, bathroom, and kitchen; the bathroom sink and tub; and a garbage disposal in the kitchen. Also need a new refrigerator, which cycles loudly. The owners upstairs were very friendly and accommodating. Given all the above, we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: We are actually upgrading the fridge now, since we also noticed that it has just gotten louder and also gradually upgrading most of the other items you mentioned except the garbage disposal. Our sewer lines are very sensitive and the city will apparently add organic recycle in the future which is more environmental. Glad that you want to stay with us again.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the three days that were spent in this place. The outside has a gorgeous view and is super relaxing to sit out there. I don't think you could spend enough time watching the ferries, and seeing the inlet that this suite is located next to. This is certainly recommended.

A good experience with a little bit of draw-back.

  • 4 of 5

The whole experience was pretty good. A beautiful view, swings and fireplace on the beach... The place is quiet and clean enough for our taste.

The bathroom door was making loud, squeaky sounds, which I know most people don't notice. But I, irritatingly, always do. We ended up just tried to use the bathroom without touching the door too much, which is no big deal.

The only other draw-back was the sleeping situation. I am a light sleeper. We usually ask for a king or 2 twin beds when traveling. In this case, I chose to sleep on the couch knowing that the bed was smaller than a queen size.

I was waking up at night by the noise from the fridge every 2 hours, even with ear-plugs on. Did not realize where the noise from until the next morning.

If I could do it all over again, I should have slept on the floor in the bedroom because there were plenty of blankets that I could've used to make myself a "bed."

If you are someone who is spoiled by 4/5 star high-end hotels with beds that have big and new mattresses, this might not be for you.

Both my husband and I would love to return if they have two twin beds in the bedroom.

Owner's Response: Glad you want to come back and we will make sure your experience in the sleeper sofa will be without any noise from the fridge since we are replacing it with a super quiet fridge. Too bad you did not tell us about the squeaky bath door since we could have fixed this very easily! Welcome back anytime.

Beautiful view! Needs a few fixes.

  • 4 of 5

The views from the property were wonderful - the apartment was nice but could use some updates. The sofa bed was not comfortable and the bathroom sink ran slow and the door wouldn't close easily at all. The towels supplied needed airing out. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and condiments. The tables outside were nice to use to enjoy the views which were amazing. It was nice to watch the ferry go by each half hour or so.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and wish you had told us up front (as we ask for in CAPS on the front page of our instructions) about the bed and slow drain since we could have shown you how our instructions already tell you how both these situations could be fixed very easily. We have extra mattress covers for the sofa bed to cater to every taste in bed firmness and we sometimes need to clean the drain after heavy usage. Don't know what door is not closing properly but will check them all and fix ASAP. Welcome back anytime.

Cozy and quaint

  • 5 of 5

A great, comfortable place in an amazing location. The Abode offered numerous outdoor sitting areas to enjoy majestic views and watch the ferries rolling in. We loved to explore the beach and appreciated the chance to use their kayaks. We grilled out and made the most of the kitchen (which provided all the basics). There are lots of steps to the beach, which was hard on my mother-in-law who visited us from Seattle. The owners offered a pack-n-play, which was great but I would say it's not ideal for toddlers. None the less, we loved the location and the accommodations. We would certainly stay again!

Relaxing Sunny Delightful Abode

  • 5 of 5

Despite being a walk out basement, this "abode" is light and airy. There is a fantastic view from every room but the bathroom. It is a near-perfect location for Bainbridge. The unit itself is clean and has all that you need. The host and hostess are very quiet and if you do see them they are very nice and helpful. Lovely watching the ferries go to and fro and yet away from all the hustle and bustle. This place truly met our desire to escape the crowds and the busy-ness of metro-life but yet so very close to the quaint downtown with it's restaurants, wine tasting, and shops. Although hidden away, it is still very easy to get to just about anywhere on the island and to the ferry that will take you back to Seattle. The abode is located with direct access to the beach. There are steps that lead down to the beach where you have access to a dining and cooking area as well as lounge chairs. The owners also provide a couple of kayaks. Our days were full of things to do but we would have been happy just staying and sipping wine or coffee on the covered patio. We enjoyed this delightful place both in the rain and shine...
