Welcome to our "Pleasant Beach Belle Villa" on the Gold Coast of Bainbridge Island. A stunning
Pleasant Beach setting, just steps to the sandy beach, lively shops and restaurants with four
bedrooms (including three master suites)!
Our home is west-facing and just literally steps to the sandy Puget Sound beach. Summer in Seattle
is generally quite spectacular, with long days of sunshine, warm temperatures and little or no
rain. Our home is located right on the water with the beach literally at your feet. In contrast to
the east side of Bainbridge, the west side of the Island is drenched in abundant summertime
sunshine and is sheltered from the prevailing afternoon winds.
Sit on our deck with a drink in hand and marvel at the tranquility, the beauty and the ever-
changing waterfront scenery as boats and wildlife pass by. Go for a beach walk, where you might
spot deer on the beach, eagles diving for fish, harbor seals and even sea lions. Swim, fish, wade
or snorkel in the shallow waters. Use our two kayaks to explore the coastline - or, try our Stand
Up Paddle-boards (SUPs) . Enjoy a dessert wine by the evening campfire of our beach-side fire pit
watching the stars twinkling overhead and the moonbeams dancing off the water. Of course you can
always enjoy a water-side barbecue or relax anytime on our large deck. Every luxury, need and
convenience is found at our Pleasant Beach Belle Villa!
If you want to get out of the house, we are located just a short stroll next to the lively and
quaint Lynwood Center. At Lynwood Center you will find five restaurants, one of the Islands most
popular pubs with local micro-brews on tap, a movie theater, a frozen yogurt shop, a wine bar
featuring many European wines, a massage/spa facility, a hairstylist, a bakery with daily fresh
selections, a grocery store, a music and guitar shop and other shopping experiences.
Enjoy cooking in our gourmet kitchen and eating outside (weather permitting), or not. Everything
from a morning latte, fresh bread and rolls, full breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner is a
just a short stroll away. If there's a better location on the Island, we haven't found it yet!
The Pleasant Beach Belle Villa was constructed in 2011 and is built just steps from the water. At
night you can lay awake in bed in any of the three waterside bedrooms with the fully-screened
windows open and listen to the waves lapping the beach. Or, if it’s a chilly night, snuggle up to
the fireplace in the master bedroom.
The double eight foot entry French doors open to a Carrara marble foyer with a striking view all
the way to the water. The open floor plan carries you past the formal dining room, the gourmet
kitchen and the breakfast/lunch nook into the living room with its soaring, 18-foot, boxed beam
ceiling and 18-foot slate stone fireplace. Extensive amounts of hardwood, including Brazilian
cherry, plus marble and slate cover the floors. The main floor also includes a utility room which
contains a washer and dryer and granite-covered counter tops.
Completing the downstairs main floor is one guest bedroom with a queen-size bed, its own double
French door access to the deck and its own en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The bathroom

The house also has central air conditioning and central heat. While it is a rare day in Seattle
when A/C is needed, it is very nice to have for the two or three weeks of hot weather that we can
get every summer!
All en suite bathrooms have heated tile floors and a hot water re-circulation loop that delivers
instant hot water to every faucet. There is a 56” television in the living room. Of course the
house has WI-Fi throughout, plus most rooms are hard-wired with Cat-5 Ethernet cable for even
The upstairs floor contains the master bedroom furnished with a king-size bed and with its own en

located on the second floor at the opposite end of the house for maximal privacy. Bedroom #3

Our guide book details the many restaurants, wineries, the local brewery and distillery, hikes,
parks, shops and other fun and interesting things to do on Bainbridge and nearby. The house is in
a residential beach-side community about 7 minutes by car to the ferry terminal. As Bainbridge
Island is an actual island, all trips into Seattle are by ferry, which is a 35 minute ride. The
ferries accommodate vehicles and walk-on passengers, so a car can also be driven onto the ferry.
Washington State operates the largest ferry system in the US. Traveling by ferry is a unique and
wonderful experience and a great way to see the surroundings from the water. When leaving the
Island to go to Seattle, you arrive at the ferry terminal in the heart of Seattle's waterfront,
so it is very convenient to ride the ferry to Seattle and walk to the shops, restaurants, sports
stadiums, theaters, etc.
The Pleasant Beach Belle Villa is furnished with extensive art work and is warm and inviting. We
are confident that there is no chance you will be disappointed with either the location, the
setting or the house! Bainbridge Island was rated the number two most desirable city in the US by
Money Magazine several years ago. There is always the risk that you will fall in love with
Bainbridge and want to move here yourself, like so many of us have done!
Please note that the house is offered strictly as a vacation rental and not a party or event
house. If you are visiting Bainbridge Island and you looking for a beautiful, relaxing, tranquil
waterfront setting, this is the place for you. Also, as noted above, the house has three bedrooms
with en-suite bathrooms (one with king bed and two with queen beds, plus a fourth bedroom with a
queen bed, so the house comfortably accommodates four couples.
