SUNRISE BEACH GIG HARBOR BEACH FRONT HOME WITH MT RAINIER VIEW

Gig Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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.

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

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

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''

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.

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.

COMFORTABLE AND BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for just 2 nights, not long enough! The home is so beautiful and the view is beyond words! We definitely want to come back when the weather is a little nicer but even in the cloudy/partly rainy days we had it was amazing. The home is supplied with everything you need and is in good working order. A beautiful modern touch to a cozy beach-style home. We can't wait to come back!

GREAT BEACH LOCATION IN GIG HARBOR!

  • 5 of 5
This house is the perfect Gig Harbor get away! Well appointed, with breath taking views of the Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier. Abundant wild life-deer, seals, otters, eagles. Private beach is nice for walking at low tide. Location is close enough to enjoy Gig Harbor shops and restaurants, while still quiet and away from crowds. John is responsive and easy to work with. Will definitely stay here again on our next visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you Michele - hope to have you back soon! Spring is upon us and the animals are all coming out. It is amazing how many birds flock in the Puget Sound in front of Sunrise Beach.

FANTASTIC RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautiful, a warm winter retreat - we enjoyed the beachfront hot tub (104F). It has every creature comfort and a beautiful kitchen and bath. The sound lapped up against the bulkhead peacefully and we had a little rain, but that was no problem as the deck has a covered section so you can still stay quite warm if you prefer to be outside. It is close to great restaurants in Gig Harbor. We'd love to come back in the Summer too!

SUNRISE BEACH BEAUTY!

  • 5 of 5
The moment we opened the door, we knew we wanted to stay longer than the short weekend we had planned. The house was wonderful - very well set up and comfy. The situation of the house on the water, the decks, access to the beach, and the view - Mt Rainier! - were just fabulous. We love Gig Harbor and have visited a few times. And this house was by far our very favorite place to stay. Can't wait to come back again!

INCREDIBLE VRBO

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was short (2 nights) and we just did not want to leave. Every time we looked out at the water it was like looking at an alive painting that changed constantly depending on the time of day. Excellent house as well, very modern remodel. Close to town so that we could get ingredients for cooking or a pizza for take out. Will definitely book again for a longer stay
