The House: Del Mar Beach House is a contemporary Nantucket inspired home with 165 feet of private sandy beach. The open floor plan all on one level looks out to your spectacular Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier Views. You'll enjoy the views of the water, just outside the windows of the chef inspired kitchen. Two bathrooms, three bedrooms complete this waterfront private getaway.

The beach house has parking for 4 with a level walkway to the front entrance.

The Garden: Between the house and the Puget Sound is 20 feet of level stone patio pavers for entertaining and lawn/landscaping. This waterfront has amazing views of Mt. Rainier on a clear day, Vashon Island and Point Defiance Park. You will undoubtedly see the 'Del Mar Seal' swimming by the property, along with boats and kayakers.

It's fun to watch the car/passenger ferry crossing the bay from Pt. Defiance Park to Vashon Island.

The Neighborhood: Del Mar Beach House is located just over the hill and through the woods from Downtown Gig Harbor's quaint shops, restaurants and the new Maritime Museum. Tacoma is just a 15 minute drive from Del Mar Beach House. SeaTac airport is 40 minutes away, and Downtown Seattle about an hour.

Perfect get-a-way for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and location with plenty of outdoor space for lounging. The Puget Sound with its boating and sea life was spectacular. The six of us sat out side on sunny days and had our meals. The boys parked the four Adirondack chairs on the lawn and played cards and greeted Kayakers as they paddled by. Breathtaking drive to the beach house, like driving through an enchanted forest. Mount Rainier views are amazing. We miss this place already…..

Not Much Beach, High Sea Wall, Difficult Driving Location

  • 2 of 5

The pictures and description in the advertising for this property fail to inform you of the numerous "issues" in store for your stay. The narrow, winding road down a hill with no street lights to arrive starts things off on a bad note. Once in the home you'l discover two doorway areas where the floor is a toe stubbing nightmare. It's raised just about 2" so anyone with kids or someone who doesn't like to stare at the floor the entire time you're walking around the home - probably not the place to stay. There is ONE small TV in the entire home! It seemed to just have the basic service pkg, not even ESPN. There are numerous TV outlets where the owner could/should install TV's in the bedrooms/den/other area with murphy bed, but instead they cover everything with art. There is an abundance of art by Warren Knapp, aka the property manager. The beach - lots of rocks ... we were lucky to see a sliver of it a few hours out of the day because during the majority of the days/nights we were there the ocean was literally several feet up on the sea wall (which is the backyard area) and the stairs down to the beach are literally covered half way up to the home in the ocean! The view was great, you're practically living in the ocean. The lawn area is really where the septic field is and it smells. The internet modem is located in the kitchen area, so if you want to use the internet you'll need to sit by the kitchen countertop or it's very slow running. There is no garage, probably because the home has been remodeled so much that an area that was once a garage you're now in as the open space with the murphy bed, which also happens to be the area you need to walk thru to get to the other bedroom... very weird setup. There's only (1) full bathroom and a very small hall bath with a pedestal sink, so there's no counter space or storage, where do you set your things to take a shower? The patio furniture has a lot of rust on it and should be replaced, we didn't touch it, it was that bad looking. The outdoor gates/fencing need repairs. The instruction book at the property informs you as a guest that it's YOUR responsibility to remove all the trash from the home AND take the trash cans down the street and up the hill to get picked up!

Awesome Getaway Close to Home

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about Warren's beach house. My wife and I recently married on Valentine's day and had a small ceremony with our immediate loved ones. The house is well appointed, awesome dead end location on the beach, terrific view, nice atmoshphere, and very comfortable. We are glad we chose this location and it is one of the few places we have stayed that we declared that we will repeat in the years to come.

Unbeatable special occasion getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to do something special but low stress for our anniversary so we looked for a beach house to rent for a long weekend. We struck gold with the Del Mar Beach House! The house is beautifully situated with sandy beachfront - perfect for our eight year old daughter who had a blast. The house itself is sleek and modern with magnificent views but also cozy and comfortable. We had friends over for brunch and everything we needed was there. This house is a gem! THANK YOU Warren for a fantastic getaway!!

Gig Harbor getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family with three children stayed for 4 days at this wonderful property at the end of the dead-end street on the sound, near the mouth of the harbor. Seals and sea lions daily swim very near The fenced in patio on the seawall. The kitchen has all the bells and whistles's. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, we are in football watching family, and my brother sits on the Seahawks fan advisory Council, so dinner was taking second place to watching football. The unfortunate part is this property's DirecTV was out during our entire stay with three children and a sibling who dedicates have a lot of money and effort to being a football fan. Thanksgiving plans had to be altered as a result of the fact we have no television. But the home itself and the views are wonderful in a word. Very comfortable, very clean.
