'We enjoyed so much staying in your cabin. The location here in Gig Harbor is ideal and the setting amongst the trees feels like we are in a tree house! Thank you for helping us have a beautiful vacation, and spend time with our family here in Washington!'

-Guest quote (May 2013)

'Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Gig Harbor is the perfect location for a family vacation. We easily visited remote locations on the Olympic Peninsula as well as the mountains, shops, and restaurants in Seattle and Tacoma. The Gig Harbor community itself is welcoming and friendly.

We loved our time in the Pacific Northwest and are grateful for the opportunity to experience your beautiful home. Hope to return next year!'

We purchased this property as a get-away when we found out our oldest son and his wife were having a baby (they live in Seattle). We are active and love to hike, walk, and golf. Find this to be a truly relaxing getaway.

Katie & Mike Zeller purchased this house in 2012

We saw this house and instantly fell in love with the cozy feel of the space, as well as the entire village of Gig Harbor.

This house is truly unique due to the proximity of the heart of Gig Harbor, as well as the true Pacific Northwest feel of the view of the fir trees from the A-Frame Home. We'd be happy to have you enjoy this home as your own for a week or a month or a season.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Located on a heavily wooded lot, this home is quiet, relaxing and comfortable. Soaring ceilings and large rooms with everything you could want in a vacation home, including a wrap around deck with grill. Great location for visiting Seattle or National Parks or just stay in Gig Harbor with plenty to do and good variety of restaurants. We plan on returning!

BEAUTIFUL RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
"Tree House" in the woods is perfect home away from home! We stayed for a week due to my surgery in Gig Harbor with a specialist. We were so comfortable in the "tree house" especially me, recovering from surgery! Thanks for everything! We would do it all over again!

LOVELY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
A relaxing retreat in the woods, yet just a walk to downtown Gig Harbor, with a beautiful wrap around deck and windows galore, providing a view of the majestic spruce and cedar trees that surround the A-frame.

CENTRALLY LOCATED GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Zeller's place in Gig Harbor 8/28 thru 9/2. We loved the quiet, wooded lot and the aromas emanating from the woodchips. The house is easy to get to, but on a quiet dead end street. 5 minutes to '16' freeway. We really enjoyed the large deck and bbq in the late evenings. The harbor and town are within reasonable walking distance and my wife utilized that while I fished and played golf. Overall the house was very comfortable, clean, neat, and had all the amenities listed on VRBO. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Two items that may interest some: For sports fans - the cable package does not currently include ESPN or ROOT, but I understand the Zeller's are looking into this. Also - the house is in constant shade and the temperature stays in the low 70's, even in the record Seattle-area summer. Being from Dallas, we enjoyed living without A/C and using the provided fans!

A couple of really cool things about the house -1) if you get a rainy day (and there will be quite a few Oct-March), stay in the master bedroom and listen to and watch the rainfall. 2) Check out the squirrels residing in the trees - they are so fun to watch. 3) Don't miss out on the chance to barbecue on the grill and chill outside with a beer or some wine. 4) 10+ really good golf courses within 30-40 minutes - including the site of the 2015 US Open. 5) The owners are VERY responsive to texts or emails while you are staying.

Overall we had a great time in Washington. Wish we could have stayed longer. Don't miss out on this gem of a house in Gig Harbor.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
In planning our recent trip to WA state, we were fortunate enough to come across this listing. The house was amazing! Nestled among the trees, this A-frame has so much charm and is located in such a friendly neighborhood. There are so many active people, walking their dogs or running, and all smile and acknowledge passers by. The house itself came stocked with all the conveniences of home such as towels, appliances, dishes, etc. The Zeller's were very communicative and provided detailed information on our accommodations every step of the way. We really appreciated the brochures and take-out menus from local eateries that they provided. We were able to use them to find great things to do in Gig Harbor. Our family really can't say enough great things about this stay. We will definitly look them up again the next time we take a trip to WA state. Thank you, Zeller's!

PERFECT HOME IN GIG HARBOR!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing place! The home is like what you see in the pictures, except better! The place is hidden on a dead end road with great privacy and amazing natural surroundings. The home is only about 45 to 50 minutes away from Seattle, just 20 minutes from Tacoma, and about 50 minutes from Olympia, so it is in a great centralized location. The home was very clean and well maintained for. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. I had a party of six and there was plenty of space for all of us. Tammy and Mike were a delight to deal with: great communication (email or cell), fast responses, and good recommendations. I stay in hotels every month (work related), but I absolutely recommend renting this house instead as it provides an intimacy, serenity, space, and relaxation you will not find in your typical hotel. The home offers great value considering the area, the price, the space, and the surroundings. My family and I had an incredible time and we recommend this house!
