Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This little cottage was wonderful! We had such a rejuvenating weekend away here. It all started with relaxing music playing as we entered our adorable home away from home. Our hosts Barbara and Dick were so kind to provide a continental breakfast and some snacks (OOooo Easter candy!). They were even so gracious as to give us some mayo when we had forgotten to bring any condiments for our lunch sandwiches. They also told us about a shipwreck we could kayak to! It had all sorts of sea creatures living on it. It was quite a site! They had enough cookware that we were able to grill up a wonderful feast for ourselves after our epic kayaking excursion. The hammock was large enough to fit the both of us for a little post-meal romantic swing. It was just what I needed. We'll definitely be back!!

    Happy honeymooning! The pleasure was ours.

  • Loved this little cottage! It was a great place to catch up with an old friend. The kitchen had everything we needed and the property was very peaceful and lovely. The cottage is truly magical and peaceful. Everything was very straight forward and we were welcomed with a nice little note, clear instructions for everything and a wonderful loaf of pumpkin bread!

  • Great location for exploring the area. The adjacent Tolmie State Park is an added bonus. In the cottage, Barbara and Dick have thought of everything. The property is well-maintained and very pretty. A great set-up overall.

    Hi Barb and thank you for the lovely review. We look forward to your return.

  • This cottage was just fabulous. We enjoyed every moment. The location was unbeatable and the views were amazing. Barbara and Dick thought of everything. It was so cozy and comfortable from the homemade pumpkin bread to the knitted booties, we were pampered completely. On our last night, we were delighted to come back to a yard full of pink flamingos! It was just magical. I'm sure we'll be back and we would certainly recommend this vacation hideaway to anyone wanted to escape to someplace peaceful and idyllic.

    Thank you Edna. It was a pleasure and a privilege to host you and Knute. We hope to see each of you again.

  • The hosts had the cottage all neat, tidy and warm for my arrival along with simple, beautiful food available in case I didn't know where to get it. I came from 85 degree weather to 27 degree Washington State. The hosts were friendly yet also allowed for privacy and solitude. The accommodations were perfect for giving me some quiet time just 15 minutes away from my 5 grandchildren and their parents. Thanksgiving was lovely. My grandchildren loved hiking the short, steep trail to the beach and found treasures immediately. I value nature and noted that they do too! Thank you so much Barbara and Dick Yunker!

    Hi Shair---Thank you so much! It was a privilege to host you, and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay here, and your visit with your family. We hope you will make Puget View your home-away-from-Aloha :) Look forward to your return. Happy Holidays, Barb and Dick

  • As first time airbnb's, we were so fortunate to have Barbara and Dick as our hosts. This was an unexpected reservation, booked only a couple of days before our arrival, and Barbara and Dick were so prompt and inviting with all of their correspondence to us. Their cottage is magical. From home-baked cookies upon our arrival to that unbelievable view of Puget Sound from the cottage deck, we could just feel any stress melt away with the quiet and beauty of our surroundings. We highly recommend the cottage and Barbara and Dick as hosts, for any airbnb travelers.

Welcome to Puget View! We live in the log house that shares the property with the cottage and Brittany's Bayside Bungalow, also listed on this site. (We're Brittany's parents :) We love this special, beautiful place and look forward to sharing it with you. We've hosted many wonderful guests over the years, but are new to Airbnb. Barb's happy when she's expressing her inner artist. Dick, an OSU forester, will help you identify any tree you have a question about. Together, our interests are outdoor-adventure oriented---whether it's bicycling across the country, summiting a NW peak, Kili, or Fuji. Over the last two years we've done a lot of walking/long distance hiking in Great Britain, Europe, Africa, Nepal, Asia. Recuperating now from 250 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail/John Muir Trail in High Sierras---and home to stay. Yay! We look forward to meeting you and providing a beautiful, inspiring place for you to enjoy.
