  • Comfort in Paradise

    "We spent 3 wonderful days and nights in this Puget Sound Paradise. It felt like we were on a houseboat when out on the deck with the waters of the Sound gently lapping the beach below us! The home is modern, well-equipped and comfortable. The owners are gracious, professional and helpful. The home and property are well-maintained. The privacy, quiet and peace we experienced while staying here were magical as many others have commented. The kayaks, bikes, large portable fire pit, propane grill, grassy lawn area, many books and games and ever-changing tides were all a bonus. Since both COSTCO and Trader Joe's are less than 15 minutes away, we shopped there before beginning our stay. After that - we never left! No need to as all our wishes were accommodated on site. This property is a gem and we hope to be able to return and enjoy it again!!!!"

  • The Wedding Crashers

    "We went to a wedding near by at Pine River Ranch and this could not have been a better location, we even walked to and from the venue. This is a great cabin that is easy to get too. Great restaurants nearby and Leavenworth is a still close 15 mile drive. The hot tub was great sitting under the stars and was enjoyed by all (comfortable for 5 to 6) .There are plenty of outdoor activities to do and hiking nearby. My only recommendations would be more chest of drawers (only in 1 bedroom) to put your things in and more closet access (we had formal wear that needed to be hung up and there was no closet or bureau in the upstairs bedroom). We had a great time and would come back in a heartbeat."

  • Excellent All-Around!

    "My wife and I stayed at the Gig Harbor Guest House for 12 days. It was a most enjoyable and pleasant stay. Without hesitation, we highly recommend the Guest House. The house is as close to the water as one can be, very close to the historic downtown, quiet, modern, and just a superb place to stay and kick back. Marlene is an excellent hostess. She provides everything that a guest would expect and wish to have to make a stay comfortable. And before you leave take a look at the name of the dock and the pictures of the fishing boats on the walls - there is a fascinating connection with local history and heritage! Great place - highly recommended."

  • Beautiful and well-maintained home away from home

    "I have rented many homes from VRBO, but this home is my favorite. The house is well-stocked with all essentials. I am also quite particular about cleanliness and this house was very clean. There is a great basement level for children. The location is excellent! Just be warned that Queen Anne is very hilly, so if you are headed towards the Space Needle, you'll have to walk uphill on the way home. Or if you head to the top of Queen Anne, the walk up is fairly steep. No problem for our family, but the topography is hilly. The views from the home were also quite nice. Overall, I love this home, and hope to return again the next time we visit Seattle."
