About Julie Shatzel

Journaling and reading are my favorite past times. I spent most of my youth in California, and later headed to the east coast to attend graduate school. Having lived in cities and towns from California, to Michigan, Iowa and Washington D.C. I find Bainbridge island living the most moderate paced. It is a sweet blend of Seattle city culture when you wish, alongside the privacy of country and small town living. I enjoy that this location is a quite place to spend with family and friends, on the sunny side of the island.

Julie Shatzel purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Shatzel chose Bainbridge Island

This private community sits atop one of the higher elevations on the island. As far as the eye can see, there are ocean and city skyline views. The views are enhanced by the floor to ceiling windows that dominate the living room and master bedroom. Awaken to spectacular sunlight reflecting off the rippling ocean currents, and relax as you watch the lull of sailboats and natural ocean life that speckle the the expanse of the glassy sea. You will spend most of your time on the deck and by the fire at night enjoying the changing hues of the sky over Puget Sound.

What makes this house unique

This home is the perfect place for family gatherings, outdoor enthusiasts, or a couples getaway. It brings families together, puts us in awe of nature's beauty and calms the spirit. It is situated within walking distance to Manitou Beach by walking Manitou Beach drive and a second beach access is accessible to Gertie Johnson Road to reach Roling Bay.

Morning coffee is within a 10 minute walk to Rolling Bay Cafe, which serves sublime coffee and wonderful breakfast pastries. Via Rosa is also within walking distance, you'll find daily fresh made pasta and sauces and chat with Pino, this is not to be missed, the pasta is amazing.

The pictures don't really do this place justice. The morning view from the master bedroom on a clear day is breathtaking. We had bald eagles "wrestling" in the air over the patio, which was 10 degrees warmer than every place else on the island for some reason. The property feels very private, and is walking distance to one of the few commerce hubs on the island.

While you can technically sleep more than 6 in this house, the layout really only works for up to 3 couples. We were frequently outwitted by the pretty propane stoves. But both those issues are on us, and the hosts were very accommodating. Highly recommend.

Stunning views, wonderful central location on the island and very comfortable inside and out. I would (and will) return. Bonus: the owner ordered 4 days out of 5 of sun!!!

JK - just kidding on the owners ordering the sun, though it was that sunny.

The view of Puget Sound, downtown Seattle and Mount Baker was phenomenal!

  • 4 of 5

Amazing property on a bluff overlooking the amazing water view. The owner was very responsive. One suggestion is to install window treatments on the upper tier of windows in the master bedroom since the sun rises at 5:15 am.

Owner's Response: Appreciate the suggestion...we had thought about window treatments for the upper section windows, but decided it would partially block the ocean & sky view in the masterbedroom. Many of our past guests have particularly enjoyed the sunrise over the water view from the bedroom
