a very special stay with benefits

Review submitted: July 5, 2014   Date of arrival: June 1, 2014

We were blown away by the fabulous view, upon arriving and driving down the drive,
where the grassy, extensive, beautifully-landscaped back yard opens up to gorgeous views of the Sound and Mount Rainier!

Our host was so helpful, friendly and accommodating that we instantly felt right at home. She had many brochures & booklets on the area in the unit, so we could easily learn all there was to see & do & it made planning easy.

The unit was so homey and pleasant- large, clean bedrooms, a well stocked kitchen, and my favorite: light and bright with many large windows and of course sea views!

Added Benefits: I am an animal adorer and to be greeted by dog Hannah each day, made it really special, as she is so loving and friendly and then there was Montana the horse that I had to, of ,course feed apples each day - such a beautiful creature and so fun to see her any time of the day, grazing and coming up to greet us.

There is absolutely nothing I would change - everything was perfect, comfie, fab views and close to town as well. We loved driving through the meandering, forested roads into town - living in the desert SW, what a special thing to be in the cool, cool verdant green forests & beneath massive,100 foot+ trees!

We would love to stay again and I highly recommend Seacliff Guest House to anyone coming to the area. Being able to unwind at the end of a busy day, and sit on the adirondack chairs, high above the sea with views of Vashon Island and most days, Mt. Rainier....what could be more delightful!

Thanks so much for the stay.....we hope to visit again real soon : )

Excellent stay

Review submitted: February 26, 2014   Date of arrival: December 21, 2013

We had the opportunity to spend two weeks at the Seacliff Guest House and the accommodations could not have been better. We loved the gorgeous location, the clean and comfortable bedrooms, the wood fire and the well stocked kitchen. The owner was wonderful, meeting every possible need! Thank you!!!!

We will be back! WIR KOMMEN WIEDER!

Review submitted: October 3, 2013   Date of arrival: September 25, 2013

We arrived after a long flight from Munich, Germany.
Tired and bleary eyed we drove up to the house and were blown away by the night time view of Puget Sound and the lights of Tacoma in the distance.
We were greeted by a crackling fire, a bowl of fruit and a nice welcome note.
We slept like babies under the down comforter and found all the breakfast makings, even for our Müsle, in the full kitchen the next morning.
The apartment is spacious and comfortabel, impeccable clean and well appointed.
Outside the window you see the boats go by and the snow capped mountains in the distance. It is quiet and peaceful here, deer and coyote cross the lawn and Montana the horse is never far away.(In case you happen to have an apple in your pocket)
We spent several days here and enjoyed every minute of it.
What a great place to get over jetlag. It is everything it promises and then some. Debbie is never far away and very helpful, born and raised in Gig Harbor she has lots of information.
Vielen Dank Debbie, es war sehr schön.

An Excellent Place to Stay

Review submitted: September 24, 2013   Date of arrival: September 16, 2013

This is truly an excellent place to stay. The view from our suite was better than the pictures show. There was no traffic noise and no neighbor noise, only silence. Debbie made sure everything was prepared for us each evening when we got "home". She even had a fire started in the wood stove on the cool evenings.

If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful home away from home this is it. You will not be disappointed.

Gem in the woods!

Review submitted: August 15, 2013   Date of arrival: August 9, 2013

Views are stunning! Debbie is awesome! Everything is just great! One of the best vacations we've ever had!

We stayed at the Seacliff Guest House which is basically the first floor of the house the owner, Debbie lives in. She is on the 2nd floor. Separate entrance to the 1st floor makes it feel like you have your own house. Debbie however just adds to the great experience. What a nice lady!

Everything in the house was great. The place was spotless! Kitchen looked renovated and had everything we needed. We didn't see washer and drier but our visit was only 5 days, we didn't really need/miss them. Might be challenging for longer stays though.
There is a TV in the house but the cable is very basic. However the wireless internet allows you to stream movies or games on your laptop/tablet if you like to stare at the screen on vacation.
The views and the yard... I don't even know where to begin! I will just call everything "stunning" and leave it there! You have to see it to believe it!
We saw a doe and fawn and a buck in our front yard. Such an incredible experience! Miss Montana, Debbie's horse, made our little one very happy! She fed her an apple.
Hanna (Debbie's dog) is the friendliest dog on the planet and made us feel even more at home! Her welcoming kisses made us feel like we were coming back home to our dog! Loved every lick and grunt of it!

We LOVED the place and highly recommend it! What a great vacation!
Thank you, Debbie! We'll be back some day!

Owners response: My goal is to make every guest feel right at home the minute they walk in the door. Guests are welcome to the washer and dryer upstairs. I will be adding an additional private washer/dryer to the view suite by next year.

Fabulous View

Review submitted: July 27, 2012   Date of arrival: July 21, 2012

The property met and exceeded our expectations! The view of the sound, with the sun shimmering on Mt. Rainier is breathtaking. The yaghts, fishing boats and ferries just add to the ambiance. Be sure to bring bonoculars to view the sound and the wildlife. Debbie is a gracious host, who makes you feel like you are the prperty owners. She is a long time Gig Harbor resident who is one of the most interesting people you will ever meet. She has commercial fished this area and Alaska single handedly, captained boats up to 100 feet, worked the oil boom in Alaska, helped clean up the gulf oil spill, just to mention a few of her adventures. We hope to return and see more of Debbie on our future visits to Gig Harbor. Ron and Lavon, Jupiter, Fl.

Separate guest cottage is great, too!

Review submitted: August 9, 2011   Date of arrival: April 27, 2011

My husband and I needed a furnished, comfortable place for a short term stay in the Gig Harbor area. It was our good fortune to find Seacliff and its hospitable owner. The two bedroom guest house was rented at the time we inquired, but the separate, one bedroom "cottage" had just become available. It fit our needs perfectly! The homeowner, a lifelong resident of the area, was attentive and sincerely wanted us to enjoy our stay. She suggested places to discover and had some stories to tell of growing up on the Peninsula before so many people lived there. We were welcome to walk about the property and enjoy the expansive views. We thought we'd probably stay for one month or so, but ended up staying for three! I especially liked walks along the Gig Harbor waterfront, trying out its many restaurants, and listening to music in the park on Tuesday nights. --Marsha

Seacliff Guest House

Review submitted: August 8, 2011   Date of arrival: July 20, 2011

We loved our visit at the Seacliff Guest House, it was roomy and we felt right at home. The view of the sound and Mt. Rainer is so beautiful, it is the best in all of Gig Harbor. Many times we would just relax and watch all the happenings on the water and be fully entertained. Every night we saw friendly deer roaming in the yard. We loved feeding Montana the horse carrots and apples. It is a very special place.

Beautiful Seacliff Guest House

Review submitted: July 11, 2011   Date of arrival: June 28, 2011

Our experience at the Seacliff Guest House far exceeded our expectations. You just have to see it to believe it. The two bedroom home is incredibly comfortable and I think I could just have moved in indefinitely. The view, the landscaping and spacious surroundings are not to be believed. We were surrounded by nature - birds, deer, open sky, stars and beautiful trees, Mt. Rainier in all its grandeur. And even a friendly frisky horse to feed carrots and apples! My grandkids were so happy! Thanks for a wonderful visit.

Corporate Housing

Review submitted: November 24, 2010   Date of arrival: January 16, 2010

This property is amazing! Unbelievable views of the Puget Sound, Vashon Island, and Port of Tacoma. Full kitchen with plenty of room to spread out. I stayed here for four months due to a relocation and couldn't have been happier. Close to town and very well maintained. The owner is top notch and will go out of the way to ensure you have everything you need. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to experience the Pacific Northwest!
