About Mr. Johnson

Rick & Kay Johnson - we were married on our beach in 2008

Mr. Johnson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mr. Johnson chose Puget Sound South

location location location :) We are less than 5 minutes from close to everything yet it is so quiet out here you can hear a pin drop. You can hear the ocean at night or in the morning if you open the window or door and it is just an amazing place. The feeling is very remote but the actuality is it right by downtown. Shops, stores, fine restaurants and taverns are just a hop skip and a jump away. NO noise except the ocean wildlife.

What makes this apartment unique

Infinity Edge Hoy Tub Spa on waterfront deck for all guest use. Wonderful white sand beech for relaxing with view of the waterfront. Kayaks - no charge for guests staying in our suites. Our bay is so clean you can see all the way to the bottom and watch schools of fish on occasion. When fingerlings (fish) are released into the bay - for a period of about 2 weeks there are schools of large fish, osprey, bald eagles (5-6), seals and yes seagulls, diving and fishing - it is quite an experience. We took a movie of it and will put it on our website soon. During spring - in the early are jumping out the water catching insects on the bay, oysters and clams.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rick and Kay were the perfect host! So welcoming and gave us the low down on everything we needed to know. The views are incredible... quiet and beautiful. We loved the deck and the landscaping. The hot tub and kayaking were some of our favorite experiences. VERY CLEAN and perfect attention to details in our rooms and bathroom. Beautiful getaway and we will tell everyone to come here!! Thank you for being so welcoming and kind. Rick and Kay, We loved your Gig Harbor Beach Bay Getaway!!

PS The towels and linens were the nicest we have ever used!

Our family had a great time here. This was our first visit to Washington and it will not be the last. We were warmly welcomed and loved the comfortable feeling we experienced the whole time. Rick and Kay are extremely accommodating. I only plan on staying here next time. The view is amazing I'm going to miss our nightly sunsets on their deck. Thank you both for such a nice home away from home and making our first trip here a good one!

Kay and Rick,

We're long overdue in thanking you for your fine hospitality during our stay at Gig Harbor Beach Bay. Simply said, it was Great!

From our very first inquiry into staying there and right up until our vacation time was over the whole experience couldn't have been better. You are friendly, gracious hosts and the setting there is beautiful.

Your accommodations, the separate Marine suite and the Penthouse were perfect for us. For our friend, Kim, from nearby Medina, it was an easy 3-day getaway close to home. For us, escaping the heat of Southern California, it was a week of memorable vacation fun and exploring all that is picturesque and quaint in Gig Harbor. As you know, it was a special occasion reunion for us and we are fortunate to have discovered your waterfront hideaway to enjoy it.

Thanks again for all,

We had a great time at the Gig Harbor Beach Bay Bed & Breakfast. Rick and Kay truly went out of their way to make sure we all had an enjoyable time. The penthouse suite was spotless and very tastefully decorated. Walking down to the beachfront was very relaxing and lounging on the deck/patio in the evening to enjoy the beautiful sunset was great. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to get away and enjoy a weekend away. Thanks again - everything was great!

Many thanks for sharing your beautiful home and setting. You are gracious hosts! The décor of your new Mariner room is lovely. The bed linens and towels are very nice! Cotton sheets are like SILK! Comfy bed! You served a perfect banana. I’ve stayed in many B&B’s and they were always serving way over-ripe bananas. Your grapes were fine & fresh! Again – Beach Bay is special! Thanks…
