Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for everything! We love your Beach house. I can't think of a thing I'd do different if I were you. Your special touches and perfect decorating made us feel right at home. Thank you too for the nice bottle of wine. We enjoyed it! We had some awesome fillet mignon, drank wine and watched a beautiful sunset over the water. We got some well needed relaxation together without interruption of everyday real life stuff! Thanks again!

Wow! What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect fit for our family of 4, including two kids, 9 and 11. The view is beyond words! I could sit all day in the coffee nook and soak it in. We arrived to a tray of freshly baked cinnamon rolls and breakfast muffins and couldn't have been more delighted. The house is thoughtfully decorated, comfortable, very clean, and has a nicely stocked kitchen. It is also a kayaker's dream! We came with 4 kayaks, and entry into the water was simple. We explored Case Inlet, Vaughn Bay, and Rocky Bay, and the kids were really able to hone their skills. The wildlife was fantastic. The yard and beach kept the kids occupied for hours. I would highly recommend this rental for an adventure or just a quiet getaway. I look forward to coming back.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas break here at the cottage while visiting our family nearby. The cottage was absolutely perfect in every way! The views were spectacular, from sunrise to sunset! Even on the day it snowed. The cottage was clean and well stocked with everything a vacationer would need, and more. Our favorite part was the coffee nook where we spent every morning enjoying watching the sun come up and the birds flying over the water. Julia could not have been more gracious and provided for our every need. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in staying here and look forward to being able to return ourselves!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this house. Perfectly secluded, but close enough to stores and restaurants. The house was immaculately clean, the beach is beautiful, it surpassed our expectations!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for our family.

Comfortable for 4 adults, a 13yo and our 2 dogs.

The location made us feel like we were in our own little world and was perfect for our family down time! We brought our paddle boards and paddled everyday! We dug for clams, picked blackberries off the bushes surrounding the property and the next door neighbors shared crabs they caught. Even though our dogs could do without the water they enjoyed the front lawn to play/lounge and the daily walks around the neighborhood. From the porch we enjoyed the views of the bay/beach, amazing sunsets and watching the tide come and go.

The bungalow was clean, comfortable and well kept. It had all the modern conveniences along with their supplies and the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room was well stocked. The photos are accurate.

Julia went above and beyond to help us out when needed and we truly appreciate her kindness, thank you Julia!

We would definitely recommend this property and we will definitely be back!

Just what we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

This property was a wonderful place for us to stay. It was very clean and well maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed the setting and the sunsets especially. We have stayed at a couple other rental homes in the past but they could not compare to this one. The owners were very helpful. We highly recommend it!! We hope to be back soon.

Utopian Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune of discovering this wonderful cabin and sight-unseen, rented it for one month. What a find!! It was even better than expected and we were so sorry to leave. It was everything we could have hoped for and much more. Beautiful area and beautiful view. Spotlessly clean inside and out. All necessary conveniences in goood working order. The dog next door was great company for our little dog. The porch was comfortable for views of the unbeatable scenery and sealife. Looking forward to going back many years to come. Mike and Julia were always available to help with any questions or concerns. The Roadhouse Restaurant in nearby Key Center was very good and easy to find. The Market there is a good place to find almost anything you might need. And Costco, Target , etc, etc is an easy 20 Minutes. For years we have stayed in a Gig Harbor hotel but not anymore.
