A Rare Gem

  • 5 of 5

It is rare to find a gem like this, a place to gather with family and friends, to share a meal, to sit a gaze at a lovely view. Our stay was perfect in every way, the warmth of the woodwork, the art, the jazz. We love to cook and the home was well equipped to cook everything from a BBQ, to Coho Salmon, to Prime Rib. We were in town for our sons wedding, the home was perfect for hosting those we love. Thanks Bruce for tending to this house with care, it is a special place with a fabulous view of the bay,

Our Relaxing Stay in Port Townsend

  • 5 of 5

The Discovery Bay home is very elegant and exceeded our expectations. Bruce provides many extra touches to ensure his guests feel welcomed. These include multiple vases of fresh flowers, candy dishes, a gourmet stocked kitchen and cold drinks in the refrigerator, to name a few. The water view is outstanding with many bird feeders placed around the home to make bird watching fun. We highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the Port Townsend area.

Beautiful, Peaceful and Fun

  • 5 of 5

We love the location (close to both Sequim and Port Townsend), the breathtaking view, and the amount of fun there is to be had in this welcoming location. We grilled out dinner and ate outside under a canopy, watched the sun set from the gazebo, then roasted marshmallows over the small stove in gazebo. Later that evening we listened to jazz. This house has countless small luxuries not mentioned in the description.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

The highlight is the view, but everything else is charming, too. All the kitchen utensils and some condiments. Comfortable furniture. telescope! Bald eagles! vegetables in the garden! One little glitch, no TV in the living room...had to watch movies in the bedroom, which isn't easy if have 5 people staying...

Would stay there again.

Wonderful house and beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. We've rented many houses over the years and this is one of the top (or perhaps the best). The house is well appointed and Bruce really made us feel welcomed! Thanks so much!

Absolutely Gorgeous Home and Property

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home!! The host, Bruce, met us at the house and made sure we had everything we needed. The view of the sound from this home is outstanding. The home is surrounded by beautiful grounds, including a pick-it-yourself salad garden and berry bushes. A charming gazebo with a "s'mores stove" was the star of the yard.

Three good-size bedrooms and two full baths made it very comfortable for our party of 6.The home is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We can't recommend this stunning property highly enough!
