About Sam Guinn

Bob and Sam Guinn have lived in Gig Harbor since 2006. With their two children in college, they were encouraged by friends to turn the daylight basement of their home into a vacation rental. Knowing the possibilities of the property, they decided to make the needed renovations to make it the ultimate getaway suite. With its ideal location and Pacific Northwest setting, they knew it would be the perfect addition to someone's travel plans. After staying in several vacation rentals, some good and some not so good, they knew what it would take to make it perfect.

Sam Guinn purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sam Guinn chose Puget Sound South

Nestled in the center of Gig Harbor, Washington, it is the perfect location as a base for all of your Pacific Northwest adventures. The Getaway is on a property adorned with lovely landscape, a fish pond, a gazebo with stunning views, and welcoming and helpful hosts to greet you. You'll love seeing the heron on the water, the seagulls dropping clams on the driveway to get their next meal, the eagles perched in the trees and the critters that run wild in the area. (Yes, critters! Although they mostly only come out at night, we do remind you that you are in the PNW and there are critters!)

What makes this apartment unique

Benefits unique to our property are it's beauty, personality, charm, and comfort. You'll love being part of the community as you stroll across the street to the Island View Market, opened in 1941, to meet the locals and experience a store from times long ago. Being small business owners, one thing we have taken to heart is to ‘support local’. We have been so blessed on discovering the incredible talents and successes of Washington companies, it is our pleasure to share them with you so you can enjoy them as well!

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay! The view was incredible, and the grounds were so amazing! It was clean and cozy. The brownies were amazing and loved that they provided yogurt, bottled water, and juices! Our hosts were very sweet, but not intrusive. The little market/tavern at the end of the driveway was perfect! The owners were very nice and welcoming. Would highly recommend! Oh, and Hannah and her trusty sidekick were adorable! We love dogs, and have two of our own, so they gave us our doggie fix! Thanks for having us!

I spent a quiet weekend tucked into this cozy little apartment. Very nice!

Sam was incredibly flexible and responsive. She brought me a folding table to spread out the project I was there to work on! Thank You, Sam!

Great location and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Although disappointed we couldn't use the hot tub due to insurance issues; we greatly enjoyed making s'mores in the fire pit, and the kids loved the games and their beds. We really enjoyed all of the extra touches that really made the stay so easy and comfortable. Would loved to have had a microwave, but otherwise, we had just about everything one could imagine they'd need! Can't wait to stay again!

Private, quiet, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay with some really nice people who respected my privacy. The place was cozy and quiet not to mention CLEAN with great coffee, and snacks. The bed was awesome! It was perfect for me, felt so at home, this place is far better than staying at a expensive hotel. Will stay again when I return to the area! Thank you Sam and Bob. Christine

Fun B&B. nice neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Pleasant, quiet but be prepared for the dog to scamper and bark up above occasionally. If that doesn't bother the renter, everything should be okay.

TV is great and they keep the fridge stocked with yummy munchies and juice/water/excellent coffee. Very thoughtful.

Girls Night Out In Gig Harbor

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time there. The place was totally cute and very comfy. There was a burn ban so we couldn't have a fire so that was a little disappointment. The owners were very nice, friendly & helpful. Thank you for making our one night away from home so relaxing & wonderful!

In relation to desired local locations in our area, we are 25 minutes from Chamber’s Bay Golf Course, 3 minutes from Kopachuck State Park and 10 minutes from lovely downtown Gig Harbor, waterfront shopping and delicious dining. If you're staying with us for the U.S Open, be sure to check out all the extras we are providing free as part of your stay. About 1 hour up Hwy 16, you'll find Poulsbo, commonly referred to as "Little Norway on the Fjord". This authentic Norwegian community invites you to experience nature's beauty, Scandinavian hospitality and old world charm. While you in that area, be sure to visit the oldest lighthouse on Puget Sound, Point No Point Lighthouse. You'll love the history and the breathtaking views of the Seattle skyline. Continuing up the road, you'll find the city of Port Townsend, known for many Victorian buildings and it's historic charm. For an absolute perfect Northwest experience, be sure to visit Olympic National Park just 2.5 hours away. You'll be inspired by the glacier-capped peaks, valleys of forests, hot springs and rugged Pacific coastline.

If you're looking to head North from Gig Harbor, be sure to stop by Stadium High School in Tacoma on your way to Seattle. From the school, you can take I-705 for stunning views of the Tacoma waterfront and hop in I-5 North to Seattle. We are 45 minutes from Safeco and Centurylink Fields and downtown Seattle. Be sure to check out the "Our Favorite Things' guide we have published for you in the Getaway suite.
