Nice place on the water to enhance our family vacation. Swimming and kayaks and a great view from the deck. A hot tub in the evening as a bonus.
Heather S. Jun 2022
The house was very clean and fully loaded. There was everything that we needed plus more! We loved exploring low tide as well as kayaking at our door step! We will definitively be staying later this summer. The owner was very responsive, if we had any questions.
Thank you.

The deck, the view, the beach access, the hot tub … we could not have asked for more! This was exactly the weekend getaway we’d hoped for. The owner is kind and accommodating. The home is thoughtfully and comfortably furnished - great beds! Shopping and dining in cute downtown Gig Harbor was fantastic. We can’t wait to come back!

We loved the view to the water. The open floor plan and large windows. All the little things our hosts provided. It was wonderful .....we will be back to enjoy again!

The 4 of us stayed 4 nights at Heron Reach in July. The home is wonderfully appointed with everything you might need (spices, condiments, toiletries, boots, kayaks, toys etc.) The AC in the main room worked well to cool the common areas. We spent quite a lot of time on the back deck just watching the water and many birds (hummingbirds, finches, nut hatches, eagles, and of course herons). The hot tub was sparkling clean with a clear tent- which would be great if the weather doesn't cooperate. We had fantastic weather and explored the area- Gig Harbor and too many walking trails to remember. The pathway down to the water was an easy minute walk. At the bottom is Sandpiper lagoon, which transformed with the 16' tide change. We enjoyed the kayaks and corn hole as well. I would definitely recommend this VRBO for couples or families!

One of the best places we have ever stayed

This is our new favorite place. Beautiful, quiet location with great views. The house was spotless and spacious with comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen. Friendly, generous owners (fresh eggs in the fridge from their chickens!) that give you your privacy, but are readily available if you need anything. The interior of the house is all on one level which my 84-year-old mom appreciated. I can't say enough positive things about this place. We just loved it. Can't wait to return.

We loved our stay at this home! It was clean, well stocked and comfortable. The hot tub was clean and inviting. Beautiful views. The owners added little touches that enhanced our stay, like providing wine, snacks and eggs from their chickens! They’ve thought of everything like providing mud boots for the beach. The owners are super friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. Great communication. Would love to stay here again!

We had a small girl trip here, it was clean, loved the view, so cozy and so much more. I’ve stayed at a few places and these owners pride themselves in great customer service. It feels like home when you walk in.

We are already planning our next trip back :)

Wonderful hosts- every little thing we needed was there and then some. A warm welcome with wine, kid treats, great instructions for the heater and wonderful resources for restaurants and local things to do. It was too windy to kayak, but we loved that they were available, Hot tub was lovely and the views are breathtaking. Highly recommend!

Clean, cozy, great get-away
Kari S. Aug 2020
Great relaxation and adventure combo! Beautiful water views, quiet, wildlife, binoculars, 5 kayaks, life jackets, hot tub, comfy/clean home, 20 mins from a cute town on the waterfront. Nice owner! Full package! Enjoy.
Stephanie T. Aug 2020
We absolutely loved this home! It was well-cleaned and exactly as advertised making for a wonderful week with our grandchildren! Its charming décor, beautiful views and complete amenities were perfect for our beach retreat. We had the opportunity to meet the owners, Ron and Sue, upon our arrival and they were so warm, inviting and responsive to our needs. Once checked in, Ron and Sue provided us with fresh eggs from their nine chickens and a bottle of Chardonnay from a Columbia Valley winery...both a wonderful surprise! With this level of hospitality and commitment from the owners, we will definitely book this property, again!

Enjoyed Pugent Sound Getaway - kayaked, hiked, grilled, chilled, viewed wildlife (Herons, seals, dolphins, whale blow hole, bio-luminescent water)! Nice home, well stocked, and clean.
Shirley C. Jul 2020
well stocked for a couple night stay, including boots for the beach, games, and movies! Would stay here again
Adriana C. Jun 2020
The pictures don’t make justice to this place. It’s a spacious one floor, 3 large bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms, gorgeous kitchen, deck, fire pit and hot tub. There are plenty of rain boots and jackets for a low tide walk which is gorgeous. Attention to detail and a nautical theme in this house make it cozy and adorable for a weekend away.
Pam H. Mar 2020
There was nothing missing and the owners were amazing. It is great for families, couples, kids. So much to do and pure relaxation.
Carol H. Dec 2019
The waterfront location was wonderful, the home was beautiful, immaculate, and the best organized of any home I have rented previously. The owners made sure that EVERYTHING needed for an enjoyable vacation was included. Their attention to the "details" were obvious in every room. It was a perfect vacation and looking forward to returning!
