A great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
This is a spacious, very comfortable house in a dramatic setting -- surrounded by tall Douglas fir trees and an arm of Puget Sound. The best thing about it, however, is its accessibility to everything that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. It's within easy driving distance of two of the nation's most spectacularly beautiful national parks -- Mount Rainier and Olympic. The mountain views and old growth forests alone are worth a stay here. The Sound is calm and picturesque, but open-ocean beaches on the Olympic Peninsula are relative close if you want to see pounding surf and wide sandy beaches. Gig Harbor itself is a cute village with an active fishing fleet, boat rentals, great views of Rainier and numerous restaurants. Nearby Tacoma is an underrated city with several good museums, seafood restaurants and Hello Cupcake, our favorite bakery. Seattle is also a convenient drive...it's the kind of vibrant city that has the best of everything in its region, including the best baguettes, seafood, pastry and produce at the public market. Seattle is a one-hour drive up the I-5, but we found it more relaxing to take the shorter trip north on Highway 16 to Southworth and then catch the ferry to West Seattle. We stayed there for several months and found everything we needed for longer-term housekeeping, including an adequately equipped kitchen. Owners Lynette and Steve were personable and helpful. In short, this is a great place for a weekend stay or longer.

This piece of property is by far, the greatest location in the area. Beautiful water views, interesting marine traffic, and wonderful wildlife to watch. It is close to all shopping and downtown Gig Harbor.

Fabulous Beach House - Perfect for Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at the Beach House over the 4th of July Weekend! This was a perfect family vacation for my husband and our 4 girls. Having grown up in Gig Harbor on Wollochet Bay, I am very picky about the beaches and only rent low bank on a calm bay, etc. and this was absolutely perfect!! We also had gorgeous weather all week - which most people from the NW know - it always rains on the 4th of July, but it didn't - we must have brought our sunny AZ weather with us!
We loved the rustic feeling of the beach house but be aware that many things are still original to the house (60's)- stove/cook-top was a bit scary to use (timer doesn't work) and I would be very nervous to use the cook top with small children around. We were outside so much enjoying the beautiful property that the interior was not much of an issue for us. The set up with one bedroom set up with dual bunk beds worked perfect for us - but be warned, they squeak a lot and if the person on the top bed moves the whole bed shakes. The Beach House has everything you need for outside fun - brand new BBQ grill was much appreciated as was the volleyball and other games.
The only drawback I could see was if the Guest Cottage was rented out at the same time as the Beach House as was the case over the 4th of July weekend. The couple that rented the Guest Cottage was very nice and came out and watched the fireworks with us, but I could see how that would be awkward if you had no idea that there was someone renting the Guest Cottage separately and they just showed up in the front yard. We had an absolutely fabulous time and we are planning our visit for next summer!

My family and I had a wonderful time breathing in all Mother Nature had to offer. The view was amazing & refreshing. Cherished family time was well achieved due to the comfortable style and setting of the beach. Also, Thank you for making it so convenient to contact you with any problems that may arise.

August Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at your beach house! Pictures do not really do it justice, the beach and backyard were so beautiful it looked like a postcard every day. My two small children absolutely loved playing outside, collecting shells, and watching the boats come and go. The house worked great for kids as well. The open floor plan was perfect. We are still talking about our amazing vacation in the pacific northwest and definitely plan to return to your beach house. Thanks!
