Best Place Ever! Best Place Ever!  Well taken care of as if you stayed with family.  Very pleasant and caring, always thinking of your needs.

"We needed an iron for the wedding we were attending and guess what they came through!"

Again, I will highly recommend this place to a couple or even a family.  LOTS to do and Very organized.


Thanks for everything,

Jimmy & Ashley M.

Even better than the pictures! The place was awesome!  The room and view were even better than the pictures!  Rick and Kay were very nice and helpful.  We will be back and will highly recommend this place.

We will be back :)

Extremely Clean! I stayed at Beach Bay Getaway because the hotels in the area were booked & one hotel recommended them.  I came on business & needed a location close to my business destination.  Am I glad I came to beach Bay Getaway!

The owners are friendly & responsive, the room is extremely clean & the water view is beautiful.  I highly recommend this location for your next getaway.

I took a walk along the beach at dusk and couldn't believe how many seashells & sand-dollars there were! The Mariner Room was lovely and comfortable, and I love all the little spaces to enjoy the views - the decks, the little seating area overlooking the waterfall, etc.

I took a walk along the beach at dusk and couldn't believe how many seashells and sand-dollars there were!  Very relaxing and quiet.  And McCormick Forest Park is a wonderful place for a quick hike in an old growth forest, and it's just 5 minutes away!

I'm really glad I took the time to drive down from Seattle and got to have such a relaxing end to my trip!

Jenifer S.

Beach Bay Getaway exceeded our expectations in Every Way! My husband and I were looking for a place to get away for some seriously needed rest and relaxation.

Beach Bay Getaway exceeded our expectations in Every Way!

From breathtaking views, tranquil gardens and the relaxing white sand Beach Area - this place truly is amazing.

The accommodations are hospitality of Rick and Kay are 5 STAR!

I WILL Be a return visitor.  Our weekend has truly been relaxing and amazing.  I simply Love Beach Bay Getaway and would definitely recommend to ALL.

Time seems to stop here.  I can't even think of something to recommend that would make it better.

Thank you very much for a memorable weekend.

Truly 5 STAR -

Laura & Malcolm M.

We will recommend Beach Bay Getaway to our Friends and Family... Thank you so much for your hospitality and Fantastic accommodations.  We had a blast!  We hope to come back in the summer and bring the kids.  The Sea Kayaks got us thinking about warmer months.  Thanks again and we will recommend Beach Bay Getaway to our Friends and Family.

Bill & Elizabeth C.

You won't be disappointed! So beautiful, quiet and peaceful.  Care and attention to details and to their guests.  I would highly recommend this "Getaway".  You won't be disappointed!

Suggestions - absolutely none!

 Best Weekend Ever Jessie and I had the best weekend ever.  Very relaxing, romantic and comfortable.  Rick and Kay's attention to detail shows everywhere.  Love this place.

We are coming back!  Thanks Rick and Kay,

Jessie & Rick

Found this Gem Our daughter found this gem when looking for a place to stay in Gig Harbor.  We enjoyed a lovely view of the bay in our cozy room.  The hosts, Rick and Kay, have amazing creativity in their landscaping and decor.  The "beach", complete with sand, shells, tiki lights, lounge chairs and umbrellas, sits on a level well above the water of the bay.  Unique, to say the least!  The amazing hot tub was enjoyable, and the kayaks available added to the experience.  Rick's attention to detail and friendly and helpful manner were appreciated.  We won't forget our visit here!!!

Vince & Terry B.

So Many Wonderful aspects! Lovely view, linens, well stocked kitchen, wonderful towels!  so many wonderful aspects!

Great beds and shower - Thanks for Kayaks!

We enjoyed meeting you and hope to be back again.

PS  some of us are sensitive to scents ...we loved having candles / beach scent air diffuser but maybe unscented?  <that is definitely something we need to ask guests prior to arrival...just in case>

 Jennifer K.

Absolutely Loved the wonderful customer service We both absolutely loved the wonderful customer service!  Rick was very kind and made us feel very welcomed.  Kay and Rick made sure we had everything we needed to really enjoy our stay.  We would definitely come back and would refer friends here as well.

Thank you Rick and Kay !  :)

PS  The only thing I think you could add that would be a nice small gesture would be to have small clear bags for guests to put their swim suits in.  this way when they leave they don't worry about getting other clothing wet.  <great idea Kacie!!!  we had not thought of that...definitely we will do this - we just put in the hot tub SPA!!!>

Kacie & DJay T.

Very Nice Place was very comfortable!  Beautiful landscaping and quiet!  Very nice bed and very comfortable! 

Jessica & James A.

Lovely Penthouse Suite You were great hosts!  Lovely Penthouse Suite.  Well equipped and very Relaxing.

Attention to detail was superb!

Thank you,


Rick is the consummate host Rick is the consummate host - Beach Bay Inn is everything and more you would want for a perfect stay.  Glorious sunset view, super comfy bed, exquisite linens and the thickest towels I've ever felt!

All the little niceties have been covered - from charming candles to great coffee and ice cubes in the freezer.  Elegant glamorous & charming furnishings.

We'll be back!

Cheers & many thanks!

We loved all the space we had in both the penthouse and mariner rooms Staying at your place was a very nice experience.  You made us feel very comfortable as well as our friends.  We loved all the space we had in both the penthouse & mariner rooms.  We plan on coming back and will highly recommend your place to our friends both local to Washington as well as those far away.

Loved the room Thank you so much for accepting our last minute request to stay overnight!  We appreciated your hospitality and loved the room -

David & Christina M.

The views from our room were second only to our kayak rides Thank you for providing a great relaxing place for us to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.  The home you have created for guests is private, relaxing and beautiful.  The views from our room were second only to our kayak rides and the dozen roses you left in our room to help us celebrate our special day.  We would recommend your home to others and plan on coming back to watch the eagles and sea lions.  Thank you!

Scott & Kristin K.

 The grounds are delightful especially the fountain and the white sandy beach above the natural beach. We enjoyed our stay in your beautifully appointed guest house.  The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable.  The grounds are delightful especially the fountain and the "white sandy beach" above the natural beach.  Thank you for your hospitality and friendliness.

Suggestion:  the directions on the website to your location:  you might want to include instructions from both 16E and 16W as well as the exit numbers.   <we will update this...forthcoming...>


 As we look out at glassy Henderson Bay watching the seals play, it is certain we will return. Rick & Kay were fantastic hosts!  We stayed for our 7th wedding anniversary and couldn't have felt more welcome or relaxed during our stay!  From walking the beach at low tide to relaxing on the "White Sand Beach" to picnicking along the deck.  This was a short stay that will stick with my wife and I.  As we look out at a glassy Henderson Bay watching the seals play, it is certain we will return.    <This is our new Bay View Suite!! and our new white sand beach!>

Jedd & Sarah D.

I will never forget this wonderful experience This property is so beautiful & peaceful.  Rick & Kay work very hard to maintain the gardens & rooms - Kay's decorating is incredible very warm & inviting - Your every need is taken care of plus more.  Thank you Rick & Kay I will never forget this wonderful experience ~

Randy F.

Loved staying here Thank you for all your help and hospitality!  Loved staying here.  Especially enjoyed the view and beach.  Very quiet area with a tremendous amount of wildlife/nature!

Felt like we were in a luxury Hotel! We loved the luxuries provided - The bed was so comfortable and the towels/linens were heavenly.  Love the soaps provided and the small kitchen with the refrigerator, microwave, toaster, etc. <Mariner Suite> Felt like we were in a luxury hotel!  We will definitely come back and stay again!

Great spot on the Bay! Great spot on the Bay!  Rick & Kay are stupendous hosts!  Watch out for the currents with the kayaks by the Purdy Bridge!  The kayaks are very stable, comfortable, and perform well in the current!
<Purdy Bridge is approximately 2 miles away north across Henderson Bay to Purdy ~ for experienced kayakers.  For beginning kayakers, all along the shoreline of Henderson Bay on our "Gig Harbor side" is very mild and easy.  Kayaks launch off of our boat ramp!>

Loved it ! Love it here, is a peaceful place and beautiful.  I was here on a warm, sunny October day, Loved it!

This place was over the top! Rick & Kay,

I have stayed at the most amazing places & I have to say this place was over the top.

Rick & Kay have been the most accommodating for all our needs.  I had the most amazing 50th birthday here!  Thanks for making it memorable!

Paula Rider

Best B&B I have ever been to!  Will be back.  Gracious Hosts!  Thank you, thank you for making my girlfriends 50th the best ever.

Diana Cooper

Most amazing stay! Most amazing stay at a home/B&B ever!  You are the definition of excellence!  So attentive and courteous hosts ever!  Thank you for an amazing experience.

Tracey Ans

Luxurious with a Spa feel! Thank you so much for your warm hospitality.  The two suites were perfect for our family.  Everything was comfortable and well thought out.  The beds were awesome and the sheets were wonderful.  Also, the pillows were so comfortable.  The bathroom towels and shampoo, lotion and conditioner were all luxurious with a Spa feel.

Perhaps the favorite spot, however, was the deck.  The view was terrific and we enjoyed spending time together as a family many mornings and evenings!  Also, the  use of your kayaks was a great amenity - we enjoyed them so much!

We enjoyed our time here immensely.  We felt very well taken care of!

My only suggestion is a lamp in the family room because, at night, having only the overhead lights is not as cozy.

<new side table lamps installed in the family room allows for cozy lighting 2013 ~ > J

Thank you for welcoming us to your "gem" of a place!

Celia & Joe Meholic

Accommodations exceeded our expectations! We were pleasantly surprised immediately upon our arrival that Rick & Kay's accommodations in Gig Harbor exceeded our expectations.  The photos posted on VRBO didn't do justice to the penthouse accommodations & views of the surrounding Puget Sound.  WOW!  For us, this place was perfect as we needed peaceful sleeping arrangements and minimal kitchen facilities as we were spending our days & evenings with family in neighboring Horsehead Bay.  My sister & brother-in-law stayed in the Mariner which is the perfect arrangement as they shared the additional functionality of the Penthouse (kitchenette, washer/dryer, and living area).

Thanks again Rick & Kay...we hope to be back in the summers to come in the Great Northwest.

Dean & Rachel

Miles of oyster & sand dollar beds and clear water! Rick and Kay were friendly and attentive hosts from the moment we arrived (early!) to our departure.  This is the perfect get-a-way if you want seclusion, spectacular views and a gorgeous waterfront location away from crowds!  We went kayaking (using kayaks provided by Rick and Kay) each afternoon, exploring what seemed miles of oyster & sand dollar beds and clear water.  The weather was two days of unbroken sunshine, and two nights of serene, romantic sunsets with cool temps and a silvery moon!!  Making for easy sleeping.

The room is commodious and luxurious and included a large flat screen TV and refrigerator (we used it for our abundant "leftovers" from a wonderful dinner in Gig Harbor) with a sublime bed complete with beautiful linens.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped - the stellar jay sighting was a delightful sight - and included a plethora of comfortable seating/lounging arrangements, including a padded hammock with water views.

A fantastic location!  Thank you Rick & Kay you're doing a great job as hosts.

Loved the kayaking! Very nice room & great view.  Loved the kayaking.  Nice kitchen & TV room.  Beautiful flowers on the property & relaxing fountain.

Rich & Kristi Pitts

Perfect Location! 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...

Our favorite place to stay in Gig Harbor! Gig Harbor Beach Bay Getaway is lovely.  We very much enjoyed our stay.  It is, in fact, our favorite place to stay in Gig Harbor.  We will be back again and again!

Jon, Kate, and I highly recommend it for friends, family and anyone looking for well appointed rooms with the most amazing ironed and lightly starched sheets, a fantastic view of the water, and the nicest host and hostess (innkeepers) ever!

Hummingbirds & squirrels!  Actually looks like a chipmunk - no tail to speak of.

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 , together with the excellent "supplies" added a feeling of luxury.

Evening in the setting sun, on the deck with a drink or coffee, looking out over the inlet, is sublime - calm, restorative.

We shall return!

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!

Melanie, Paul, Hanna, Kenny

Most Serene One of the most serene places I have stayed.  Quiet, peaceful, well equipped.

Host & hostess went out of their way to accommodate our schedule.

 I will be back!

Great Place! Great Place - Clean, Friendly, Wonderful Atmosphere, and everything you need to have a nice relaxing time.

Money well spent.  Will most definitely refer friends & family.

Craig & Leanna

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 J

     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!!  J

M. G. Cati

oh-so-comfortable     WOW!  What a terrific place!  We enjoyed the fantastic view and the oh-so-comfortable suite.  Thank you so much.  We look forward to coming back sometime.

Richard & Julie

PS:  Thanks for printing the forms and faxing them for us!

5 Star It was the most relaxing place to stay.  Rick and Kay are most cordial and friendly.  The room was 5 star!

I will Definitely Return,

Thank you,

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
Seattle, WA.

Major Highlight      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! J

Luxurious      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 you!

Diane & Randy
Palm Beach, FLA.

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!!

5 Star
          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!

Thank you,

Claremore, OK.

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 areas...
< A brand new bistro-set was purchased 8/24/2010 for the Mariner > J

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

Classy Place!      A wonderful place, like being home, only better.  Very! comfy bed,  decor is in excellent taste thru out - lovely sitting bench looking into the garden & fountain.  Oh, spa products smelled wonderful!

Bed & Linens to die for! 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 will
be back, maybe sooner than you think.  Had a wonderful time here & in Gig Harbor - what a special place!

God Bless you both richly,

Barb & Dick

it's all true:

Feel free to use this blurb as you see fit, it's all true:

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 Kay share so naturally.
We enthusiastically recommend Gig Harbor Beach Bay.
You will feel welcomed and at home from the first moment.

True Luxury 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 back -

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 Colorado.

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.

D.O. & S.O.

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!

By 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

Fantastic 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.

Over-the-top 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.

Rick and Kay are great Hosts!

Unexpected Bonus Thank you  for a lovely stay at the Beach Bay Penthouse, which was a very spacious and private accommodation.

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
Bellevue, WA.

Stood Out! 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.

Be blessed!

Fabulous We had a wonderful stay!  Rick & Kay were accommodating.  Their attention to detail was fabulous!  The  Penthouse was beautiful, quiet and relaxing.  We would definitely return and recommend this lovely Bed & breakfast.  Thank you so much for making our stay spectacular!  What a gorgeous view!

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!
