Love the nature, wild life, serenity, peace, incredible beauty, openness, harmony and love in nature..

Kimmie and Donald purchased this house in 2005

Surrounded by all above, fresh air, and the mystifying Blue Pacific!

All above yet close enough to civilization if you want to be.

This home is definately not a place for a loud drinking party people. This home is perfect for a small, intimate family/freinds gathering to share love, and enjoy the peace and harmony in nature...

A BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I was very surprised to find this beautiful charming home in Ocean Shores for just to get away. Movie theater, soda fountain to entertain myself and my friend. Peaceful setting, All fun activities to chose from and a very convenient location. Walked to the golf course. I loved every moment! I will definitely come back.

DIRTY AND MESSY. LAWN NOT CARED FOR OR MOWED.

  • 1 of 5
My son stayed there for a week and planned on getting married there. The house was a pig pen. Junk everywhere in the house. The lawn was a joke. It took about 20 people to come over and clean it up. Couldn't even get into the garage because there was crap everywhere. Then on top of that the owner of the house illegally went into his bank account and withdrew money without asking him first. This cost him alot to fix that. Then the owner of the house showed up at the wedding ceremony and started taking all these pictures that she wanted to use on the advertising of this house. She was trying to show everyone what a great place it was to get married in. After 3 days of cleaning and fixing things we made it presentable for the wedding, and she wants you all to think that is how it is. WELL, IT IS NOT. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. Go somewhere, anywhere else.

Owner's Response: We find that “ It is impossible to please everyone, we try very hard and do our best. Most of all our guests( 99%) have had a wonderful experience, and we are sure you will too. The party stayed at this beautiful home for three days before they made the decision to get married here.. We were there to help clearing the entire garage(2 boats, 1 kayak , 2 bikes and extra furniture, and many seasonal decorative items),clear the garden paths for 3 tents( rainy day) and even took down the year long 'Tivoli- Christmas room', for the 'special wedding ceremony'. The card number did not clear the first time, nor the second ... After all, the bridegroom and the remaining family were so very glad to see the extra ordinarily beautiful photos I took for them on that special day!I was very glad to be asked to be a part of the sweet moments and celebrate the moments with them. I was so excited to see the beautiful photos turn out to be and was able to give them a forever lasting memories of their beautiful wedding!
The bride was an absolute beauty on that dock getting off the boat! The ceremony was exceptional also! Please call us for any questions or for a reservation. We are very nice people to work with. Thank you.

NOT SO MUCH

  • 1 of 5
This place may function well as a bed and breakfast, but as a rental home, it sucks. There is no proper place for people to lounge as a group, except maybe in the movie theater with its stiff-backed chairs and ancient audio/visual equipment. Our bedroom had nothing but horrible florescent lighting, and I had to pass through a communal bathroom (!) and another bedroom to get to it. The soda fountain is only to look at, not functional, and half of the laser disc videos won't make sound with the system. Boooo.

Owner's Response: Need some imagination here ;12 seats and 4 tables in the dining room, A round table and 5 chairs, 3 benches in adjacent sunroom and the hallway. Put three dinner tables in a row and we had a banquet for 12! Old fashioned
exact replica theater chairs and Retro settings are actually one of our main attractions for its uniqueness and for its artistic value. It is fit for average sized people. Gibson Island room always has 2-4 lamps ( extras in
garage) and why people remove them? G. Island room and the keeper’s room is a separate “Mother in Law” suite with a private entrance and a full bath room and a half bath. It is for a close family /friends. There is a lock
for the privacy for that unit. Soda fountain is fully functional and you call the soda company to fill up the soda tanks at your own expanses, or bring your own soda/ice cream and use the funky cafeteria there. We encourage
you to use plastic/ disposable utensils rather than the novelty items in display on the cup board please..
Laser discs are older model and need to be handled with a kid’s glove. We choose one person out of the group and show how to operate the system. We encourage people to leave the system to the designated operator only and
not to play with these equipments on your own please. Some serious damage can occur and it can be very costly! “Function knob” is the key word here.
For more details and policies please contact me. Thank you.
Kimmie.

MY STAY AT THE GIBSON'S BED AND BREAKFAST

My Stay at the Gibson's Bed and Breakfast
  • 5 of 5
I loved it! It is so unique, cozy, homey, and pleasant. I have never stayed at a place like this! It was a great getaway stay, and I really enjoyed the way the house is built as well as the decorations and the design. I liked everything about it, and I want to go back when I next get the chance. The movie theater was one of my favorite things. I have never been in an in-built movie theater inside a house! It was a wonderful experience being in there watching my favorite movie on a big screen. I definitely recommend staying there to anyone who appreciates value, a great bargain, and who is looking to have a one-of-a-kind experience unlike any other! :)
