Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Puget Sound - 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.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We used the Abode by the Sea as our final stop after visiting Seattle and Vancouver. The suite was cozy and private with lovely views. It was just what we needed after a busy vacation before heading back to our lives. Bainbridge is lovely with biking and hiking for active folks if you don't mind the hills and plenty of good restaurants such as Bene Pizza and Harbour Public House to choose if you do not desire to cook for yourself. Definitely take the ferry and you can see the Abode's property and enjoy the views of the Seattle skyline and Mt. Rainier.

An amazing location for watching the ferry come and go from Seattle, bald eagles fish, and hummingbirds on the bank. Nice beach below for a cool swim. The property is slightly dated with it's furnishings, but very clean and cozy. The access walkway is a little challenging to get in the unit if you have any disabilities. Wish it had laundry facilities, but otherwise a nice private hide-away, and amazingly serene.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved our location that we never cease to admire ourselves with the views, the ferries and all the sea life. The eagles and hummingbirds are frequent guests and also herons on the beach, lots of geese flying by in the fall, etc.. Sorry you found some furniture slightly dated since all the new furniture we have is less than 5 years old and the rest of the furniture is actually antiques to keep our cozy atmosphere. Yes, the brick access walkway is slightly sloping for about 20' with 5 small steps with a railing and we show a photo of it so our guests know what to expect. We actually have had guests with wheelchairs find them relatively easy to navigate and many of our guests are above 70 years old so it should only be a problem for severely handicapped people we hope. We hope to add a washer/dryer in the near future but have plenty of bed linen and towels in the closets for changing. For guests staying more than one week we actually provide laundry when our guests require it and for other guests we refer to the nearby laundry service if needed. Hope to see you again.

How could my wife and I have asked for anything more!! Jenny and Claes's Bainbridge Island home is simply perfect. Jenny and Claes were wonderful hosts. The view from their beautiful home is simply stunning.....and calming. Perfect location. 30 minute walk into the heart of town. We could have stayed forever........

What a view! Beautiful and peaceful retreat.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Abode by The Sea and loved it. Wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and has everything you need. Nice sized bedroom, living room, eat-in kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor dining area. All the furniture and kitchen appliances are in great shape. The best is the view! The location is totally quiet with a view to the ocean. You can hear the waves from the balcony area. A great place to stay!

Great location and view

  • 5 of 5

Locations was great, the space was a good size for me and my friend and was a great addition to our girls weekend trip away to Seattle! We are thinking of coming back and making this an annual trip! Quick to respond when we had questions about the kayaks and the fire had a good amount of wood ready to use. Definitely would come back, we could not locate the coffee though but there was a good supply of tea.

We had a wonderful time

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property with a great view of the ferries coming in and out and very good access to the beach. Internet access was good but a book of tide tables would have been handy. It was wonderful to have good dry firewood available - thanks so much for providing it. The kitchen is really tiny, as might be expected, so it would be really tight to cook for 4 people; the table is really too small for 4 people although one can always make do. We only found one frying pan and it would be nice to have a second instead of using a pot to saute our vegetables. I would definitely return; it is a wonderful hideaway for a couple with great access to the island community of shops, restaurants, museums, a beautiful outdoor labyrinth, and lovely walking trails! Thanks for the hospitality and excellent instructions on how to get to the property. :-)

Owner's Response: When you come back you will see our upgraded superfast internet since we just upgraded to a an eero.com amplifier system and a second frying pan. The instructions how to find the tide table on-line and how to fold out the dining table to sit 6 people are actually part of our red Guideline ring binder. So welcome back anytime to enjoy our cozy woodstove (dry firewood provided), the great views and the beach.
