Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
The spacious studio comfortably shelters 1-5 people. Filled with light, the spacious studio is a cozy get-away or easy base camp for exploring. Enjoy a walk to Rolling Bay neighborhood shops, wine tasting, beaches and trails. Outdoor garden seating is available, with a fire pit just in case a marshmallow roast is in order.
We will consider well-behaved pets with their responsible owners, as most are, for a $25/animal fee. Dogs must not be left alone unless happily crated.
The second-floor studio is a comfortable retreat for an individual, and yet roomy enough for a group. With a living room area around the gas-burning stove, a window seat with bookshelf, loft, and counter + stools, there is space for everyone to relax or play. Books, puzzles, coffee, tea, hot chocolate are stocked up for all ages.
The open kitchen consists of a toaster oven, 2-burner infrared cooktop, electric kettle, coffee maker, microwave, and under-counter refrigerator centered around the large concrete-counter island with stools. A full size freezer, washer & dryer (w/detergent, dryer sheets, $4) is available. Basic cooking supplies are provided for those wanting to prepare meals in while enjoying the forested view. Please see photo captions for complete descriptions of the beds available.
Guests have room to store bicycles and gear in the downstairs studio entry. Yoga mats, reusable shopping bags, and umbrellas are also available.
We live in the adjacent house and will be available if any questions or problems should arise. We are always happy to supply local maps and information, but do want to let guests have their peace and time to themselves.
The neighborhood is wonderful for walking and exploring, with the beach and Ted Olson Nature Preserve nearby. Even closer, Bay Hay & Feed, the post office, a coffee shop, mini-mart, fresh pasta shop, auto repair, and the district court make up an active neighborhood center. Connections to island trails for more extensive hiking, mountain biking or running are 1-3 miles away. Fay Bainbridge Park is 3 miles north by beach walk or Sunrise Drive.
We are about 3 miles from the Bainbridge ferry dock, from which taxi cabs and public transit depart. The Kitsap Transit bus stop, at Valley Road and Sunrise Drive, is a short walk from our studio. There is easy, on-site parking for one vehicle.
Guests have room to store bicycles and gear in the downstairs studio entry (secure and dry). Your private entry is accessed with a key and deadbolt.
