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!> J

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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!!

First Class
5 Star
     Rick,
          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,

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.

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.

Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

Warmly,
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!
Ti & Art

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!

Great
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.

Great
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!
