Bay Manor, in Redondo, a handsome turn of the century three story red brick house, stands on an acre of land, with superb bay and mountain views. Breakfast is served on the deck, where freighters, sail and fishing boats pass by, and seagulls and Eagles frequent visitors. It is well maintained, with an informal and friendly ambience. Redondo, a small waterfront community, has a boardwalk, fishing dock, general store/postoffice, and Salty's famous waterfront restaurant. Easy access to all points of interest. Seattle is a 20 minute drive away, and the freeway, one and a third miles. Come visit soon.

Quaint, peaceful - a delight

4.6 on February 26, 2014

Elsie makes the stay at her B&B a delightful experience. Peaceful and private, and the hospitality is wonderful. The Redondo area is quaint, busy & bustling but quiet & peaceful on the beautiful Puget Sound. I will be back!

A taste of the past

Elsie's London accent remains after a half century living in the US. Her sense of humor and vast experience of B&B's makes a night stay worth while.
