About Marlene

We have so many great memories from when we lived on Harborview -

We hope our guests will also have many happy times in this wonderful house!

(The photo is Marlene and Rhubarb, mascot of the Tacoma Rainers, not her spouse....!)

Why Marlene chose Gig Harbor

Gig Harbor is a terrific place to live or visit!

What makes this house unique

The house was built in 1993 and recently updated, but the location is full of family history and remains a vibrant part of the community. It is great to be in such a peaceful location that is oriented to enjoy the harbor and also be able to walk out the front door and be near all the shops and restaurants and activities going on in our town's main street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for helping to make our Christmas & New Year such a special one. The house is really a gem with its incredible view of the harbor. We loved watching the boats go by, both at night with their seasonal lights & during the day with the bright white hulls against the dark bay....

The history of this little spot on the harbour really enchanted us. The family momentos & photos are charming.

We enjoyed the lovely basket with holiday treats and the Zoolight tix! The bubbly was perfect for New Year & the snowmen made the holiday bright.

Looking forward to staying with you again! Happy New Year!

Excellent All-Around!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Gig Harbor Guest House for 12 days. It was a most enjoyable and pleasant stay. Without hesitation, we highly recommend the Guest House. The house is as close to the water as one can be, very close to the historic downtown, quiet, modern, and just a superb place to stay and kick back. Marlene is an excellent hostess. She provides everything that a guest would expect and wish to have to make a stay comfortable. And before you leave take a look at the name of the dock and the pictures of the fishing boats on the walls - there is a fascinating connection with local history and heritage! Great place - highly recommended.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Perfection is the word to describe our 3 week stay at the Gig Harbor Guest House this past summer!

The owner was very helpful with making the arrangements and providing all the needed information. The Guest House was just so wonderfully amazing it’s hard to know where to start.

OK. The view! Sheer joy to wake up to it each morning. The Gig Harbor Tourist Magazine for Summer 2013 had THE EXACT SAME VIEW on its cover—just to give you an idea of how good it is.

The Guest House itself was spacious, bright, and immaculately clean and had everything we needed and more. All kinds of cooking utensils, appliances, dishes, glassware, nice linens and an entire drawer of Trader Joe’s spices were provided. There were lots of books, magazines, and children’s items. The house was decorated with pictures of fishing boats. The modern house sits just above one of the historic net sheds and belongs to a descendant of one of the original Croatian fishermen who settled there. The pictures are all of family boats. There was a huge basket of yummy Trader Joe’s goodies on the counter to welcome us.

My husband was weak from cancer treatments and then broke his leg after we made reservations. So, we slept on the sofa bed downstairs the whole time. Thankfully, it was completely comfortable and felt like a normal bed.

Our son, DIL and 5 granddaughters live in Gig Harbor. So, the grands got to have sleep-overs with us and do fun harbor activities. They all said having us there was like being on vacation in their own town. The location could not be better! A wonderful bakery/deli is practically next door. From there you can walk (and I did it pushing hubby in a wheelchair) in either direction to both ends of Harbor View Drive. Lots of good restaurants, candy store, gift shops, a wonderful boat house, etc. PLUS, in the summer there is a concert in the nearby park each week, a Farmer’s Market in the park twice a week, and a Trolley Stop just in front of the Guest House where a cute red trolley gets you to most any place you would want to go in Gig Harbor for shopping or entertainment.

Stay in Gig Harbor

  • 5 of 5
I can only say my wife and I would highly recommend staying in Gig Harbor and you would not be disappointed with this property. Great ammenities, beautiful view and so much to see and do in the Puget Sound area. The property was clean and inviting and ready to just put down your bags and enjoy a relaxing vacation. Happy hour at the Tides on the water was quite a treat and and an easy stroll down the wonderful harbor area to get to and there are many other attracions along the way. We found numerous restaurants, shops and grocery stores in what is know as "Up Town" in Gig Harbor, not as scenic as the harbor, but very good and convienient. Go here, rent here and have a great time here, our family sure did.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5
Perfect Gig Harbor location, right downtown overlooking the water with a million dollar view. Very nicely outfitted; owners have thought of everything to make you feel right at home, including a welcome basket overflowing with goodies. Perfect for a couple or small family. Sofa bed is very comfortable, as is the bed in the loft.

Fabulous Getaway in Gig Harbor

  • 5 of 5
I am sadly packing my bags after my 8 week stay at this wonderful home away from home. The purpose of my visit was to spend some quality time with my son and his family. I arrived to a perfectly set up vacation home complete with a beautiful appointed welcome basket. The home was very clean, and well decorated. The pictures are accurate, but don't begin to convey the homey atmosphere of this house. Everything you would need is provided, so you really dont have to bring anything, not even a toothbrush! The view is incredible. It was so much fun to watch all the activity on the water. The description was accurate; it is right in the middle of everything, and yet, it is so private. One of my favorite memories of my stay here will be waking up every morning to the incredible view of the harbor. I only had to contact the owner one time, and she responded quickly to my need. If all goes well, I hope to return next year.
