This is the view of the logging yard and ships in the harbor from the large picture window in the dining room.
Sharon was a wonderful host. My only regret is not staying with her for additional time. Prior to arriving at Sharon's, I had hiked the coast and was very tired (and I'm sure my clothes didn't smell great). Sharon let me wash my things (laundry is not included in rent, so I was very thankful for that) and then left me to relax in her beautiful front yard. Her view is fantastic and she even mowed the lawn for me.
Sharon is what Airbnb was built for. Airbnb should learn 'best practices' from her and then pass those along to their other owners. She clearly understands how to run her business. You will also be able to tell from her million other positive review.
When I return to Port Angeles, I hope that I will be able to stay with Sharon again!
This spectacular overlook of the working bay is unrivaled. Her turn of the country home is near the downtown restaurants and shops. The bedroom is large with a lovely sitting room and private bath. Sharon is a wonderfully friendly and accommodating host. I loved my visit!
Excellent stay! Beautiful old home with a beautiful view over the water. Sharon was a gracious host and made me an unexpected breakfast and coffee, as well as a ride! Thanks again, Sharon
For my husband and I, privacy is key. I know that kind of goes against airbnb but we just want to have our own space to get away. At Sharon's we had the entire second floor to ourselves which was perfect, plus the access to the downstairs if we wanted. Sharon's house was clean, with lovely and interesting furnishings throughout and views that kept my husband mesmerized. Sharon was the most hospitable host we met on our trip and made us feel very comfortable. Her breakfast was delicious too. Next time we're in Port Angeles we will definitely go back to see her. Also a great bargain compared to other places we stayed on our week long trip to the NW. Wish we could have stayed more than one night.
We have very much enjoyed our stay with Sharon. She is a very special person. Her house is charming, the view is fantastic. Sharon made us very good, elegant breakfasts. We were sad when leaving her. In Port Angeles we enjoyed visiting the Camaraderie Cellars. Also Sharon told us to go visit beautiful Lake Crescent and its lodge. We went hiking in the rain forest and also visited the Sol duc warm springs.
Sharon est une personne delicieuse. Sa maison est authentique avec une vue qui rappelle la Bretagne. Port Angeles a une atmosphere a la Steinbeck. La region de la "olympic Peninsula" est fantastique: Sources chaudes de Sol duc, Lac Crescent. Nous n'avons pas pu en faire le tour ("drive the loop) par manque de temps.
I would like to start by saying; How absolutely wonderful this place is. The pictures are accurate, my hostess went above and beyond what was needed for accommodations. I would recommend this hostess to anyone.
Port Angles is a quaint little town that is perfect for exploring. Any nature enthusiast will be in for a treat, a short drive and your surrounded by deep woodlands.
The claw foot bathtub, will melt the days activities away, highly recommended as a retreat.
