About Scott VandeZande or Jan Place

My husband and I bought our beach home because we love being on the water. We are sailors, and have a sailboat that we bring to our property, and park on our bouy which is right in front of our home, when we are there, during the summer moths. We decided to share our home with VRBO renters after a very successful experience with our West Seattle VRBO RENTERS. We have 24 reviews, and all 5 star. Please refer to listing number 399739 to get reviews from our recent vacationers at West Seattle. Since we have just listed our Longbranch home, we hope these reviews will give you an idea of how we maintain our homes, as well as our character. We do strive for our vacationers to have a memorable private, and enjoyable family vacation.

Scott VandeZande or Jan Place purchased this house in 2010

Why Scott VandeZande or Jan Place chose Gig Harbor

The sense of peacefulness, quiet, and beauty of the northwest surrounds us while staying at our home. The incredible sunrises, as well as when the sunsets, bring a warm orange cast on the snow capped Mount Rainier throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

Our home has been completely remodeled, so all appliances are new, including remodeled baths, new carpet, and a beautifully decorated, comfortable home, that most would not consider a beach home, but instead, a beautiful home at the beach. The wall to wall windows provide an incredible view from nearly every room. For summertime, there is a large deck with gas grill, as well as a fire pit for roasting marsh mellows. Just steps away to the beach for kayaking, and swimming.

A wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This home is an ideal vacation home from which to experience the full beauty of the Key Penninsula. It has all of the amenities and with spectacular views of Mt. Ranier and the Puget Sound from the master bedroom, the deck, and the back yard. It is very quiet and peaceful and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time in this house and would go back again in a minute! Thank you to the owners for the great preparation of this home.

Does it get any better than this?

  • 5 of 5
There are so many wonderful things to say about our experience here. First rate service and communication from the owners Jan & Scott would top the list. Everything was just as we would have hoped for and all of the comforts of home were in place. Add to that an unbeatable view, a serene and quiet atmosphere, and easy access to the many adventures the Puget Sound has to offer. Our children discovered starfish , oysters, moon snails, clams, and crabs within 50 yards of the private beach access. A harbor seal came nearly every night at sunset and hung out at the floating dock in front of the property. We got to watch the full moon rise over Mt Rainier from the spacious deck as the weather was clear & warm almost every day. Take advantage of the canoe/kayak provided during your stay for a quick row down the shoreline to take in the many exquisite homes and sights dotting the area. This is a boaters paradise to be sure. If you are looking for an alternative to the same old hotel suite tucked into the hustle & bustle of the latest tourist trap then you've come to the right place. We hope to return again and thank you so much Scott & Jan for making your home available and our first vrbo vacation a great one! - Shawn, Jenn, Jack & Cora

Really Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5
My brother, father and I spent the July 4th weekend and had a fantastic time. The weather was great and so were the views. We used the gourmet kitchen each night and ate on the deck overlooking the water. We used the fire pit each night as well. The fireworks show by the neighbors and others across the bay was the best I've ever seen. Our time was relaxing and perfect for our get together. We drove in to Gig Harbor one day for lunch and the drive was not bad. This is a very nice house with a great location and view.

Well-Rested visitors from Nebraska

  • 5 of 5
This place has great Karma. My family and our little dog all had a relaxing time here. The house itself is very tastefully decorated. There are lots of soothing colors, crisp fabrics, lots of tile and all the modern conveniences. A bright red door welcomed us amid attractive landscaping. There is a large back deck and easy access to the beach. We spent lots of hours in the mild temperature watching the water and the skies. Just when we though nothing could be more beautiful, the water would move, the clouds would lift and Mount Rainier was visible in all its splendor. The kitchen is very user friendly and well-stocked. The very large table allows a great place for family meals or puzzle assembly. Although we did not partake, we thought it nice that local wines were available for purchase in the pantry. Pat also provided lots of tourist info pamphlets that helped us find fun places to visit in the area. There is a nice pottery shop where I bought a clever microwave egg cooker, and we bought a lavender plant at the lavender farm near by. There are a few grocery stores and restaurants to take advantage of but the property is certainly a place one can get away from the busyness of the city.
I and my family give this lovely vacation home 5 stars. The ambiance, ease of booking, cooperative nature of the owners, the truly "pet-friendly" nature of the place made ours, a most enjoyable "get-away"!

personal oasis from family reunion

  • 5 of 5
As a former travel agent, I really wish I could give this experience 10 stars! Just beautiful, from the gorgeous view, peaceful surroundings, lovely interior, beautiful glass pieces, wonderful fire pit, to the very comfy beds. It was my first experience with VRBO, and Jan is such a delight to work with. Any and all of my questions and concerns were answered promptly.
We were attending a family reunion in Tacoma, and it was so nice to slip away at night to a place of our own. We were also traveling with a toddler, so a hotel wasn't much of an option--long story short, this was the perfect spot for myself, husband, 2 daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. The grocery store in Key Center, had everything we needed to make lunches to take on our adventures in and around Key Pennisula. The kids enjoyed canoeing, hiking in the nearby state parks. The moon rising over the sound is spectacular! If you believe in karma, you will definitely find it here.
Note: Know in advance that every time you go to Tacoma the toll is $5.25, we knew that so it was no
surprise. Also there is a State Salmon Hatchery nearby that is very interesting and the fresh and smoked oysters from Minter Creek are absolutely to die for..
This trip went from a must do family reunion, to a beautiful retreat the minute we entered the property.
Thank you Jan and Scott for sharing your beautiful home! Shelley

Owner's Response: Thank you Shelly for your stellar review! It is my goal to have things just right for my vacationers. All the beds are new, and very comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped, and the view of Mount Rainier is truly spectacular, which makes our home a great VRBO.
Thank you for leaving the house as clean as you left it. You were a great
Guest, and I hope you can return some day.

Just steps to our beach, and minutes from our home is a boat launch. We have a bouy in front of our home, where you can tie your boat. Or if you prefer, there is a Marina in Fulicy bay, just a mile from our waterfront home. Penrose State park is minutes away. There is a local winery for those that enjoy wine tastings. Side trips to Olympic National Park, Hood Canal, Mount Rainier, Mount Saint Helens, Port Townsend, Olympia , Seattle, Bremerton, and Gig Harbor are all points of interest. During the summer there are many local festivals. During the month of August we have delicious blackberries, pears, and plums growing on our property.
