Recent Port Townsend reviews

  • Great location for fun on the water!

    "Our family group of 10 stayed at this home in August and had a great time. Overall, it was a great rental, in a very nice location with lots to do. There were many positives to this rental, however, I can't give the rental five stars for a few of reasons. First, while we paid extra to rent two kayaks, we found that two of the three available were not in good shape. Both were missing seat backs, making paddling for any length of time uncomfortable. My nephew took off his life jacket to lean on because two screws were digging into his back where the seat back had once been attached. For what we paid to rent them, I would expect them to be in good working condition with no missing parts. I was surprised at how steep the trail to the water was. Anyone with mobility issues may not be able to go down to the water. Also, there is some kind of oyster operation (a big boat and many barges) going on in the bay. It wasn't noisy or anything, but kind of detracted from the look of the bay (the boat and barges are NOT visible from the house). The house was nicely decorated and functioned very well for our group of ten and the beds all seemed comfortable. However, there is very little seating in the living room - not enough for all of us to sit down together. So our group was forced to kind of separate - some inside in the living room and some on the deck. More seating would make this home even better for large groups. Overall, we loved the house, the location, and the water, and we all had a very good time visiting this area for the first time. We even went to the waterfall suggested by the owner and spent a few fun hours there. This is a place I would return to!"

  • Oak Bay Get-Away

    "This home was the perfect setting for our family vacation. The view/property is beautiful and the home was immaculate, beds were very comfortable (I am particular), and it was probably the best stocked vacation rental I have been in. David and Kim thought of all their guest's needs and then some! The deck was perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine, the grill was great and we played many evening family board games on the deck , (stocked by David and Kim). We travelled from Michigan so greatly appreciated not having to provision everything. The area is beautiful and the home location is good for touring the ONP. Port Townsend and whale watching, ONP Hurricane Ridge hikes were high on our family list. The home paperwork was very organized and clear. I highly recommend this property."

  • I wanted to stay forever.

    "Just got back from a long girls' weekend at the Big Red Barn, and I couldn't be more pleased. The location was excellent, right along the bluff above the beach. The grounds are so peaceful and relaxing with the sound of the fountain just outside the door. The bed is very comfortable; the bathroom is amazing. Clearly, these folks are interested in their guests' comfort, providing all the little extras from juice and muffins, informative albums about the area, beach towels, etc. Dealing with the reservations, etc. could not have been simpler and more pleasant. The review from four years ago is clearly an error, a review of a different property altogether, not just because I disagree, but this property has no upstairs/downstairs or adjacent neighbors through the walls. This is a stand-alone building, well-maintained and well managed."

  • The photos are spot on but do not do justice to the true beauty of the place.

    "The listing is accurate. The house was very clean and comfortable. Amazing view of the Sound. The yard and gardens around the house are beautiful and well kept. We saw herons and bald eagles– one was in the pine tree not twenty feet from the house. The showers worked great. Plenty of room for four adults and two dogs. Our niece was getting married and the wedding site was just over a mile way so the bride and brides maids got ready at the house on the day of the wedding without people feeling crushed or putout. The house is quite spacious. This place is truly a hidden jewel of a vacation retreat. Can not wait for more vacation time so we can come back!"
