Interaction with Guests
Depends on guests wishes and how busy we are. We like to visit if we have time and that is what guests want. Can be up to you!
View is spectacular and many restaurants and galleries within walking distance.
Bus line is a street below ours but to get to Tacoma or Seattle its a bit of efffort.
NO SMOKING ANYTHING IN OUR HOUSE. Two guests (double beds in each room) to a room only unless explicit arrangements are made. Street parking is available. Guests are expected to be reasonably quiet after 11 pm.
John was terrific. He showed us the room and the amenities. He then had to take off for a wedding. We had a gorgeous view and a lovely place to spend an evening.
We were most fortunate to spend our days in Gig Harbor at this lovely home. It was very comfortable and, as promised in the description, the view was outstanding. The location afforded easy access to the local restaurants and the harbor area. We walked everywhere we went in town. Our hosts were so welcoming, and gave us great suggestions.
John and Maureen were wonderful. The neighborhood was top notch and the house was amazing.
John & Maureen's home is beautiful and has gorgeous views. There is a separate entrance for the rooms and the space downstairs was quiet.
John & Maureen were very accommodating and gave great recommendations about places to eat and visit around Gig Harbor, as well as hikes around the area. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Lovely home and lovely hosts. The space is even nicer than in the pictures--very clean and comfortable, with a gorgeous view. John kindly accommodated changes in my schedule. I only wish I could have stayed longer.
Thanks John & Maureen for a very nice stay! Four nights in a beautiful setting with a very kind and accommodating hostess/host. Thanks for the warm sunny days, great views, especially from the roof! We look forward to our next visit.
We had a most excellent stay at John's place. The room was very private, very quiet and extremely clean. We really enjoyed having access to the very fine surround sound system while sitting in the comfort of the leather couch. Check in and out times were very generous. 9AM in and 4PM out. John was very helpful but gave us privacy. Thanks John.
