The House: One story, air conditioned house on a level lot (no steps), Del Mar Pointe is a waterfront getaway on a tiny natural saltwater lagoon off Washington State's Puget Sound. The water views from every room showcase the ebb and flow of the tide from high to low! From the central flag-stoned foyer, your house abounds with views of the small saltwater lagoon. In season, watch the salmon swim past Del Mar Pointe from your living room and kitchen/dining room. The comfortable bedrooms, stone fireplaces in the great room and the kitchen/family room, make Del Mar Pointe a must-stay.
The Neighborhood: Del Mar Pointe stands at the end of a tree lined country lane. The inlet just off the property's lagoon is home to a variety of salmon, seals, bald eagles and a variety of other sea life. Across the lagoon is convenient Purdy Drive, leading you to Hwy 16 and eventually Gig Harbor, Tacoma and Seattle. Del Mar Point is located just about eight minutes from the city limites of Gig Harbor to the south, and 15 minutes to Port Orchard/Bremerton to the north. Seattle's downtown is located just 60 minutes away. Del Mar Pointe sits across the inlet from a small village, named Purdy, established in 1885. While visiting this village, pick up fresh crab, seafood and the catch of the day. The shops are indoor/outdoor with colorful signage that is clearly seen from Del Mar Pointe. Save room for a mouthwatering selection at the local fruit stand. A variety of restaurants are minutes away. The Pointe also has a front row view of a rustic and historic oyster farm with oyster shed architecture established in the 1920's.
The Garden: The landscape has plenty of level lawn area and an intimate patio with a propane BBQ, perfect for outdoor entertaining and play. The lawn slopes on the property's two sides down to the water's edge. Launch your canoe or kayak from Del Mar Pointe, or travel to the half mile long natural sand bar for boating, fishing, swimming and some of Washington State's best wind surfing. Del Mar Pointe is front and center to the hustle and bustle and yes, the weekday afternoon traffic, of Purdy Drive. The shopping village is nearby, with quick access to the Gig Harbor peninsula and beyond; you'll want to visit every year.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you, Warren, for the return of our deposit on Del Mar Pointe which we so enjoyed. Many things....... the space worked so well for us, our 13 year old granddaughter spent much time on the piano which thrilled me. The grandsons-9 and 7 years-had a ball on the water, the family played croquet, the laundry room!!!! My goodness! The weather on wedding day was perfect, also on Thursday for the beach party. What touched me greatly were your paintings, you obviously love sky as I do and I did spend time just looking, beautiful colors, etc. Thank you for sharing these with us. And your books.
