Come and go swimming or boating in the water. A boat launch is close by. Enjoy a campfire or a walk on the beach. We are located close to other parks with many trails for hikes.
Historic Gig Harbor is just 20 minutes away. Tacoma is a half hour away and Seattle is an hour drive or ferry ride away. You can take a day trip to Mt. Rainier or the Olympic Peninsula. We are close to restaurants and great shopping too.
Great place. Spacious, tastefully decorated, comfortable beds. Brought inflatable kayaks and kayaked with the local sea lions. They were curious and just hung out with us. Lynne's place is high beach waterfront, with steps to the water. So lovely.
Fantastic view and hosts - they are so friendly and accomodating. There's a lot of space, the rooms were spotless and tastefully decorated, and the home itself is beautiful and well constructed. The bathroom is huge and a two-room affair (toilet/bath in a second door-enclosed space), and the furniture is comfortable. Lots of pillows, big windows, and great backyard with access to their private beach. They have a nice dog who roams the property but caused no problems for our own dog (who doesn't like other dogs).
The only thing that would make this vacation spot better is if there were kitchen facilities in the ground floor suite being rented - we knew going in from their description there wasn't any, but with the remote location, lack of dining options nearby, only having a bar fridge and microwave can be a bit limiting. That said, Lynne and Dale took care of us - Lynne lent us their hot water boiler and every morning there were fruits and breakfast style cakes. There's also coffee for yo brew, and various goodies left in the bar fridge to help yourself to.
Also note that while you have an entire floor including an awesome huge deck, there is no door on the stairway inside to upstairs, so those who want ultra privacy might not like that.
We loved our stay and highly recommend this as your weekend getaway vacation spot. Just awesome!
Had an incredible time while staying here. My friend and I spent as much time as possible sitting outside our lodgings and taking in what can only be described as awe-inspiring view of Mt. Rainier, while watching the waves gently lap just yards away from our lodging. The location is simply incredible. Walked along the beach when the tide rolled out and encountered sand dollars up and down the shore. Incredible! Gig Harbor is a short drive away-with excellent restaurants and bars. Anyone looking for an exquisite and quiet getaway will definitely enjoy.
This was our first experience with AirBNB and we can't wait to try it again. Lynn and Dale were superb hosts and their location was just perfect for us. We were able to hike in Mount Rainier National park, enjoy Gig Harbor, spend time walking along the beach, geocaching, and just sitting to enjoy the beautiful view. The rooms were better than being home - the antiques were so enjoyable and the beds were comfy. We were sorry to leave after only two nights and would highly recommend Lynn and Dale's place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway with relatively easy access to activities of the area or just to kick back and relax.
Booked Lynne's place to host two guests of my wedding party, they had a blast, and enjoyed the place so I look forward to checking it out myself soon! Lynne was really gracious and easy to work with on coordinating check-in across our different parties, it was a relief to have that one less thing to worry about during my wedding. Thanks Lynne!
