Overview

Gig Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). Close to U.S. Open

Just 5 minutes outside the heart of Gig Harbor and 15 minutes from the Narrows Bridge is Sunrise Beach. The view is so beautiful that it takes your breath away! The Sunrise Beach enclave of 22 homes was established at the turn of the century. It was accessable only by boat until 1960.

Originally built in 1924 at the water's edge the home was completely remodeled in 2006. It boasts a beautiful kitchen with large great room all with 180+ degree views of the Puget Sound. The home has slate floors, granite counters and stainless appliances. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds which are un-stackable. Large comfy couch can sleep two and Aerobed inflatable mattress in the closet for larger groups. Large bathroom with two sinks, double headed slate shower and washer and dryer. Detached large two car garage with tv/bonus area in the back. Great getaway for the kids. This garage has no facilities but has two convertible futon couches. The home's large wrap around deck is right on the bulkhead! Full under cover outdoor couch on the deck summer months with infrared heaters to let you enjoy the beautiful view longer.

At low tide there are miles of walking beaches each direction to collect shells and other treasures. At high tide the water gently splashes against the bulkhead. Sunrise Beach county park is a short walk away. The best diving spot in the area with a 30-60 foot deep reef running 200 feet along the shore (Google Sunrise Beach WA Diving). Dive boats drop divers most weekends at the reef - fun to watch or join them. A Buoy for mooring your boat.

Feels like the San Juan Islands (80 miles north by boat)without having to travel and negotiate the ferries. Tacoma waterfront restaurants are 15 minutes away by boat and they have docks. Eagles, seagulls, seals, and the occasional whale travel Colvos passage between the beach home and Vashon Island. Kayaks and big boats travel by constantly. 180+ degree view of it all inside or outside of this beautiful home.

Large new hot tub next to the water to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the beautiful sunset reflecting off of Mt. Rainier and the full moon rising shortly after. Wake up to the increadible sunrise on Sunrise Beach! Email us for more incredible photos. Your stay will be unforgettable.

About John

John and Shelley - we enjoy our beach house as much as our guests! We chose Sunrise Beach because it has it all - Great views, on the water, sandy beach, miles of walking beaches, history, close to everything.

John purchased this house in 2005

Why John chose Gig Harbor

The view was first discovered and documented by Captain Vancouver's 1792 expedition. There is a large historical marker from 1930 on the spot where the expedition made their sketch of Mt. Rainier in the ship's journal. The Tacoma Historical Society in 1930 matched the spot to the sketch. The marker says 'May 26, 1782; John Sykes Vancouver expedition sketched the bay and the mountain from this site. Aug 22, 1853; Theodore Winthrop crossed from the west passage to the Narrows. He saw the reflection of the mountain on the water and wrote: 'The Siwash call it Tacoma''

What makes this house unique

The beach house is so relaxing. It is at the end of Sunrise Beach Drive so there is never any road noise. You are at the waters edge to just sit back and enjoy. The amenities of Costco, Albertson's, and Starbucks are 5 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beach house and cannot thank you enough for your hospitality and graciousness. All the timely help you provided when we needed it remains greatly appreciated. The coziness and warmth of your cottage, especially during the "snowy" nights, were more than we could have imagined.



The overriding theme about this trip that will remain a lasting memory between my wife and I was how close our family united, due in part, to the close yet completely comfortable living and dining spaces. We enjoyed so many things together like playing Monopoly, watching movies or just reading and "scrap booking" in front of the fire. All of these things contributed to an amazingly memorable holiday vacation. A couple of other highlights were our family walks up the hill and teaching my kids the thrill of a "monster-slam" service return at the ping pong table.



We highly recommend your beach house to any family wanting to establish memories and create bonds that will last a long, long time.



Many thanks and warmest regards,



Patrick, Angela, Stephy, Dani

Gig Harbor Visit

  • 5 of 5
Myself, husband and 2 teenage boys loved the Sunrise Beach, Gig Harbor house! Living in Colorado we have some great scenery, but this was amazing. It is all about the view here and the house is set up inside and out to make the most of it! We saw seals, sea lion, deer, and Mt Rainier a few times. We cooked a lot and had everything we needed. The house is stylishly decorated, modern and vibrant and had so many comfy features from the bed to the soft, bright throw blankets, the fireplace, outside heat lamp and couch, to the hot tub. The boys all enjoyed the ping pong, man cave (garage) too. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Best view in Gig Harbor

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at beautiful Gig Harbor was made even better because we chose to stay at the Sunrise Beach House. The place was lovely and well-decorated, and the owner was gracious and accommodating. Although the Beach House was secluded and quiet, Gig Harbor was still just five minutes away. Puget Sound and Mount Rainier views were worth the price of admission alone. When we return to the area, this home will be our choice for lodging.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Gig Harbour by car from Texas, the trip was very scenic, we were very happy that the house at Sunrise Beach looked just like the photos that the owner John had published on the travel website. It was decorated very lovely and had all the accommodations we needed. We used the gas fireplace everyday along with the gas fire pit outside. We are relaxers and beach walkers and this house was perfect for both. We saw seals, birds, and deer just while sitting on the deck. We had mostly good weather, of course there was some fog so we didn't have the clearest view of Mt Rainer but we were able to see it none the less. If we need to make another trip to Washington we will definitely stay and Sunrise Beach.

Wonderful time in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Sunrise Beach house for 10 days. We enjoyed every moment we spent there: the view from the inside of the house is breath taking with a 180 degree view of the bay.
The bay is peaceful and a pleasure to watch from the deck. We were lucky to see a few seals and some porpoise: initially we were thinking they were dolphins but John the owner suggested it was mostly porpoise.
Even during the few moment of rains we had, the place was beautiful: we had the pleasure to see a full rainbow just over the water. We have now some nice pictures!
The house is well equipped and we did enjoy many breakfast, lunch and dinners on the deck.

We will definitely be back when we can.

Owner's Response: Hi Nalyne,

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and saw a pod of Harbor Porpoise. The Seattle Times writes:
"After nearly disappearing from local waters for decades, harbor porpoises are once again a common sight in Puget Sound.

“They are back, big time,” says biologist John Calambokidis with the Cascadia Research Collective in Olympia. “They are probably the most common cetacean in Puget Sound.”

Common in our inland waters through the 1940s and ’50s, harbor porpoises virtually disappeared in Puget Sound south of Admiralty Inlet and Hood Canal by the early 1970s."After nearly disappearing from local waters for decades, harbor porpoises are once again a common sight in Puget Sound.
