Krista's house is a beautiful oasis in Gig Harbor. She kindly let us check in early which we very much appreciated. There was a welcoming bottle of wine and we had such fun hanging and cooking in the well-stocked kitchen and open living room space.
The view from the house is amazing...right on the water and harbor of this lovely town. We had a problem with the outside deck area and Krista's husband was immediately responsive and came right over and even brought us a bevy of amazing seafood to compensate for any inconvenience we experienced.
The mattresses were most comfortable and all of us past 50-year old visitors appreciated that greatly. It is a wonderful neighborhood and we took a number of long walks including into town where we discovered the terrific Devoted Kiss Cafe. It was a great spot to celebrate our shared birthdays. Thank you for making that opportunity available to us.
The house itself was very beautiful and quite comfortable. Not to mention the calming water views that can be seen from all around the house. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to Gig Harbor.
Lovely place in Gig Harbor - we can't wait to return sometime in summer! Watching the sunset in the hot tub was a great way to end 2014, and we enjoyed the first day of 2015 catching up on movies on the ridiculously comfy couch downstairs. Thanks again.

Beautiful home in a fabulous location. Amazing water view! Hostess was lovely.
Krista was a perfect host! Not only was the home absolutely stunning and very clean. Krista was very quick in response to any questions we had and very thorough in helping us find our way around Gig Harbor. The location, home and experience were absolutely perfect. Will definitely try and stay again in one of Krista's properties if we return to the south Puget Sound.
