"We are four girlfriends (all 60+) of 50 years who travel together once or twice a year; this Day Island Cottage by the water was absolutely marvelous for our needs: great view out a huge picture window overlooking the sound and the Olympic Mountains, spotlessly clean, great kitchen with all appliances and gadgets, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. The very gracious owner was there when we arrived with a plate of freshly baked cookies and a smile - she was very helpful with information.
We had a car to visit local attractions and we rode the ferry from Bremerton to Seattle, but the neighborhood is very secure and ideal for strolling in the evenings. We were fortunate to have extraordinary weather while there and used the outdoor table and chairs for our evening cocktails at sunset and watched the seals and geese and boats pass by - lovely.
The only concern for older travelers or families with very young children, is the spiral staircase which is the only access to the third bedroom and there is no bathroom. But, for older children who are more fearless and flexible it would be an ideal quiet place for them to hang-out and/or play.
I highly recommend this property and my girlfriends all agreed that we would be back!!"

"Our family of five was in Olympia for our Granddaughters Masters Degree graduation. This beautiful 4 BR home was perfect for us - each BR had it own bath, the whole house was spacious and superbly decorated. Large open kitchen with a large deck overlooking Olympia and Mt. Rainer - excellent for relaxing with an evening drink. The location as perfect - 15 min almost to anything local.
The owners were very gracious and accommodating - they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable an at home. We had the most gorgeous weather but Ed and Margaret cannot guarantee this !!!
SUPERB RENTAL PROPERTY"

"We stayed in Gig Harbor at this amazing property while visiting family in Tacoma. Once you drive up to the property, you will not want to leave. In fact, my husband, who never sits still, said, " I will be right here in this chair overlooking the bay and the view of the mountain all weekend!" And that's exactly what we all did. It was so relaxing. The house is very well stocked with all you need for cooking and bbq'ing with nice, top of the line equipment. The bedrooms are clean, with nice, soft linens and comfortable beds. The house sits directly on the water and when the tide is out, the beach is perfect for searching for shells and "treasures".
It is a bit of a drive from the freeway exit, but not too far and well, well worth it once you arrive. Only about a 7-10 minute drive to downtown gig harbor where there are Great restaurants, shops, kayak and paddle boar d rentals.
John was so easy to work with and extremely responsive.
We look forward to staying here again. It is a special property!"
