Perfect location. Close enough of a drive but far
enough away to feel like you're getting away.
Beautiful view, comfortable room and close to nice
restaurants. We particularly enjoyed kayaking to see
the eagle's nest and watching the stars while relaxing in
the hammock. We got exactly what we were hoping for.
We honestly can't think of any way it could be better...

Feeling of luxury
A perfect end to our three-month "around-the-world"
trip, which included Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand
and the west of the U.S.A.
The unobtrusive, warm-hearted
hospitality of Rick and Kay makes them the perfect B&B
hosts. Their attention to detail, their help and good
advice enhanced the time we had here.
The quality and style of decor in the rooms and apartment

Absolutely the Best
Absolutely the best place we've stayed at! The
hospitality, warmth & friendliness of our hosts was very
touching. It felt like friends opened up their home to
us and made sure we were well taken care of.
The suite was
everything we hoped for and more!
We absolutely loved the view from our room and the
private deck area. All amenities were luxurious and we
also enjoyed the beautiful gardens, patios and watching the
birds and squirrels around our room.
Thank you Rick & Kay
P.S. We are blessed to have found this place.

Views were breathtaking
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views were
breathtaking and Rick and Kay were wonderful hosts.
The Penthouse and Mariner Suites were perfect accommodations
for our family to celebrate our daughter's graduation from
UPS and provided respite with helping her pack up her
apartment to move home.
Thank you for the fabulous stay!

Million Dollar View
We needed a place to spend the New
Year's weekend and your B&B was perfect - secluded &
private. The penthouse suite had the comfort of your
own place with the living and cooking area. Spacious
and the ambience is beyond words - We loved the luxury
linens & beddings and the million dollar view
Last but not least, we loved the
hosts, Kay & Rick - very warm and welcoming. thank you
for your introduction to B&B - it's my first experience and
it's memorable and pleasant. Will definitely return!!

are most cordial and friendly. The room was 5 star!
I will Definitely Return,
Another Wonderful Stay...
Rick & Kay,
Thank you for so much
for yet another wonderful stay at your B&B. The
Wine Tasting was great. Diana's (of The Wine
Studio) choice of wines was superb. She really seems
to know her grapes. Our friends mentioned to us at
dinner how much your hospitality was appreciated.
Thank you again for making our stay memorable.
We look forward to our next visit,
Rick & Antonia
We had such a great time here!
Sitting on the deck sipping wine (at the wine tasting) was a
major highlight. It was amazing being on the deck with
the heat-lamp! The rooms
are wonderful. The bed and sheets are super
comfortable. The bagels and fresh fruit delivered in
the morning was sure a pleasant way to start the day.
The owners were very friendly, generous, and
always willing to do whatever to improve our stay.
We will definitely recommend this B&B
to our friends and we would love to come back again!
Thanks for a wonderful time!
PS. Even the shower towel was awesome!
Ellie & Dennis
Very nice, peaceful, quiet &
comfortable. Bed, linens & towels were luxurious.
Great Breakfast! Thank you for the gift set of
toiletries! Thanks for everything - Enjoyed meeting

Better By Far
The Penthouse Suite where we stayed
was as nice in accommodations as it was in Style and High
End materials in it's furnishings. Rick and Kay
are naturals in running a B&B. They seem to have
thought of everything a five star resort would offer you,
IE: A heater on the deck overlooking the bay,
beautifully selected wine glasses, linens, soaps, dishes.
The suite was first rate but with a comfortable homey feel -
not like a hotel at all. Better By Far.
The place is located in an
upscale neighborhood on a waterfront street with 180 Degree
views of the Bay & Peninsula across the Bay. It
doesn't get much better than these Vistas and Sunsets!
It's Extremely quiet, serene and private and it smells
Heavenly. The grounds are lushly planted and mother
nature helps out here with wonderful soft rains.
Rick and Kay are eager to help
with any need, bright, pleasant, warm and down to earth.
A pleasure to share the property with.
Thank You for the Wonderful
Gilchrist & Soames toiletries!!
Jim & Julianna
You and your wife had
made it so enjoyable for all of us. We have been taken
care of like family. The accommodations are first
class - 5 star. The Best Bed & Breakfast
we have stayed! I would recommend it to everyone.
If and when we are back
in this area, this will be where we stay!

Sublime & Luxurious
Idyllic setting combined with a restful
ambience beckoned us to stay longer than planned. Your
attention to detail, the sublime evening on the deck, and
the luxurious feel of the linens and decor make your bed and
breakfast a special place to stay.
The breakfast was
generous. Beautiful outdoor sitting areas!
Our suggestion is the possible addition (in the
Mariner) of folding chairs for eating inside in case the
weather prohibits the use of your beautiful outdoor sitting
< A brand new bistro-set was purchased

We've enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your hospitality and great advice for what to
do and where to go in Gig Harbor.

Dear Rick & Kay,
Thank you for
making us feel so very welcome & comfortable. What a
beautiful place - inside and out. The room was
gorgeous! The bed & linens - to die for! Felt
like we were at a 5-star rated hotel - yet very cozy.
Thank you for the spa gift you left us in the room.
We enjoyed time spent talking
with you and the amazing view from the deck. You are
so very blessed to live here - thank you for sharing it with
others. We love everything about this place. We
be back, maybe sooner than you think. Had a
wonderful time here & in Gig Harbor - what a special place!
God Bless you both richly,

Staying with Rick and Kay in Gig Harbor was as warm and
inviting as any Bed and Breakfast could be.

The house, the landscaping, and the waterfront, all
complimented the genuine care and hospitality that Rick and

Nothing could make my stay here more wonderful! The
accommodations are true luxury. The furnishings
lovely, the bay view magnificent, and of course Rick and Kay
could not have done more to meet and exceed my every
need. I will definitely recommend Beach Bay to all my
friends. Thank for a lovely week.
Have to give you 5 stars
Rick & Kay,
Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. I
have to give you 5 stars. First of all the
accommodations are amazing, beautiful view of the sound,
immaculate rooms, over the top as far as meeting our needs -
and fun, sweet friendly proprietors - Definitely will come

Everything was wonderful!
Everything was wonderful! We really enjoyed our stay.
You have created a beautiful home and property with so much
attention and love. We loved the room, gardens, (rock
& flower), deck etc. The finer touches were lovely as
well (towels, sheets, candles, throw blankets etc.)
Breakfast in bed was great & delicious! Of course your
hospitality was what made our stay even better.
You were so welcoming and helpful and have great energy and
love that transmits onto your guests. We will
definitely recommend you to other UPS families from
B. & E.
Have to get one of these
What we enjoyed the most was the view (Honeymoon suite), the
comfy bed and the relaxing Jacuzzi soft tub (have to get one
of these). The hospitality and the attention to detail
was great too. It was convenient to be able to eat
breakfast in bed while looking at the view.

Quiet, Peaceful, Charming
Quiet, peaceful, and charming - we had a great time!
The Penthouse is beautifully done, and the fireplace in the
bedroom is a great touch.
We awoke refreshed and were met
by a wonderful breakfast of fruit and pastries all left for
us by our precious hosts Rick & Kay.
We'll be back!
J. & C.
Far the Best
Thanks Rick & Kay
I have stayed at quite a few Bed &
Breakfasts over the years. I can honestly say this was
by far the best. From the moment I spoke with Rick
about last minute reservations in their Honeymoon Suite,
'till the time we left, I have never had hosts go so far out
of their way to accommodate us. The room's decor is
very tastefully done. The view from our plush bed was
amazing! Breakfast was served when we wanted it and
was one of the best we've had!
Can't leave out the wonderful soft tub! We had a
wonderful stay and will definitely return.
Rick & Antonia
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay with Rick & Kay!
It was our first time we've stayed here & it won't be our
last! Everything was wonderful...the newness & luxury
of the rooms (loved that!), the view from every room, the
comfortable bed & pillows, the TV w/selection of DVDs, the
scotch (which my husband loved!) the coffee in the morning,
the terrific breakfast - where did you buy those bagels???
FANTASTIC and a late check-out to enjoy it all! Thank
you for a wonderful experience!
Thank you so much Rick &
Kay! We will see you in the summer.

Dear Rick & Kay
Thank you for making my husband's birthday
weekend special. We love the Mariner room; the view of
the water and the lovely settings . Comfy bed and
bedding. "Over the Top" decorations! Good Job Kay!
The feel of the rooms is pure luxury. (Thank you for
our Spa gift - how thoughtful!) Last night we so
enjoyed the 2nd floor courtyard patio sheltered from the
wind, private and romantic as we enjoyed our own wine &
cheese & chocolates - that we didn't leave to go elsewhere
for dinner! We could not have picked a better spot for
a much needed getaway.
Thank you for making us feel pampered and welcome.
Your business will succeed because of all the "right
touches" and because of your gracious hospitality.
J & D.
The Mariner Room was beautifully decorated and very
comfortable; Bed Linens were luxurious and made-up

Thank you for a lovely stay at the Beach Bay
Penthouse, which was a very spacious and private
The decor was cozy and inviting and the view of Henderson
Bay was fabulous. Waking up to the sound of the
waterfall and wind chimes was an unexpected bonus!
You both were very friendly and welcoming and made us
feel more like special guests than just patrons at your B&B.
We will definitely recommend your place to anyone heading
in this direction for the weekend.
W. & Susan
Thank you it was a lovely and very comfortable stay.
The Honeymoon Suite with the great scenic view of the
oceanfront was gorgeous. What made this stay the best
and stood-out from any Hotel, Resort, or even B&B stay (for
me and my husband) was the Hospitality.
It was warm &
personal. Rick and Kay attended to our every need.
To all that come you will not want to leave! Just
being around Kay and Rick will make you want to enjoy their
establishment even more.
Ti & Art
We had a wonderful stay! Rick & Kay were

|Kay and Rick,
We're long overdue in thanking you for your fine
hospitality during our stay at Gig Harbor Beach Bay.
Simply said, it was Great!
From our very first
inquiry into staying there and right up until our
vacation time was over the whole experience couldn't
have been better. You are friendly, gracious
hosts and the setting there is beautiful.
Your accommodations, the separate Marine suite
and the Penthouse were perfect for us. For our
friend, Kim, from nearby Medina, it was an easy
3-day getaway close to home. For us, escaping
the heat of Southern California, it was a week of
memorable vacation fun and exploring all that is
picturesque and quaint in Gig Harbor. As you
know, it was a special occasion reunion for us and
we are fortunate to have discovered your waterfront
hideaway to enjoy it.
Thanks again for all,
R. and D.

|We had a great time at
the Gig Harbor Beach Bay Bed & Breakfast. Rick and
Kay truly went out of their way to make sure we all
had an enjoyable time. The penthouse suite was
spotless and very tastefully decorated. Walking down
to the beachfront was very relaxing and lounging on
the deck/patio in the evening to enjoy the beautiful
sunset was great. We would highly recommend this B&B
to anyone looking to get away and enjoy a weekend
away. Thanks again - everything was great!
