This cozy a-frame getaway is perfect for a couple's getaway or especially for an extended stay in the area. It is 2000 square feet 2 bedroom +, 2 bathroom home, with a full washer and dryer. It is near historic downtown Gig Harbor, within walking distance (if you like hills) to great restaurants, marinas, wine bars, yoga studios, shopping, coffee shops, and parks. Our Gig Harbor home comes with everything you need for a great getaway; wireless internet, flat screen TV with cable, dvds, and so much more.

We fell in love with Gig Harbor, and our home will be the perfect place for others who wish to explore the community.

Within a mile are kayak rentals, paddle board and boat rentals, Donkey Creek Park and the Gig Harbor history museum. You will want to walk to everything, especially if you like hills.

'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!'

About Katie & Mike Zeller

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

Why Katie & Mike Zeller chose Gig Harbor

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Comfortable, spacious home.

  • 4 of 5

Open, spacious, comfortable home with lots of natural light. It feels like a forest setting though it is very close to downtown Gig Harbor, in a quiet and pleasant neighborhood. Furnished with 3 queen beds, (excellent quality beds), 1 twin bed, 2 futon beds; owner says sleeps 5. Kitchen was outfitted for light cooking, (no skillets or dutch ovens), plenty of dishes and appliances. The house is convenient to downtown Gig Harbor, though if you intend to walk be sure you can manage the quite steep hills on the way back "home". The on-site washer and dryer are a plus, especially if you plan to stay a long time.

The house itself was very clean and fairly well maintained, but the windows were due for some TLC; we cleaned the sky-lights with the long handled squeegee from the garage so we could see out of the bedroom windows. We also replaced several burned-out light bulbs.

Note that the owner does not allow guests to use the drive-way, (not obvious why not). The door to the house is on the side at the middle of the house, and you are required to park at the front of the lot. This is quite inconvenient since it leaves a moderate distance to carry your luggage and groceries uphill to the front door. (We stayed for 6 weeks and we got mighty tired of "schlepping" up the hill.) For this reason I would not recommend the property to anyone with mobility limitations. It would have been much more pleasant if use of the driveway had been allowed.

With the exception of the driveway issue, we enjoyed out stay here and recommend the home to others. The owners are easy to contact, extremely responsive to questions, and quick to issue refunds.

Owner's Response: Due to storms in the Pacific Northwest during the winter season, we do have some issues with keeping needles off of skylights. We will be sure and contact our maintenance/cleaning staff to check for this issue in the future. We will also make sure they check the lights when preparing the house for the next guests. We also leave light bulbs in the main pantry for your convenience. The driveway has some twists and turns that are very narrow and hard for many vehicles to maneuver. For liability reasons we suggest not to use it but to park on the quiet street. We do inform our guests ahead of time about the use of the driveway and the slight incline. If a guest has a small vehicle they can use the driveway. Skillets and frying pans are available in the cupboard next to the stove. I will be happy to stock a Dutch oven.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had been to Gig Harbor a few years before to tour the area and look into the prospects of buying a second home. This time we brought our two teenage daughters and one of their friends with us. This house was a perfect fit for our group of five.

The house was clean, beautifully decorated and very nicely supplied. The kitchen cabinets were well-stocked with even some pantry items available for our use. We enjoy preparing our own meals, and this kitchen made it easy to do.

Washington's scenery is simply amazing! We had arrived at night when there was a heavy fog, so it was sheer delight to see the majestic trees out the front glass the next morning! During our stay we took the girls hiking through old-growth forests and drove into Seattle to tour Pike Street Market (and of course, The Original Starbucks!) and the Space Needle. We had checked the weather forecast before we left Southern California, and seeing that Snoqualmie Summit (90 minutes away) had snow, we brought warm ski outfits with us for snow tubing! Seattle Seahawk football fever was everywhere as the team was entering into the one of the season's final playoff games while we were there. We wanted to make sure the girls got to experience a ferry ride, so we took the Southworth ferry over to Faulteroy on our way to the airport on the last day.

The owners made the reservation process very easy. We were adequately informed about the property prior to our arrival The owners had a notebook available with information about the amenities in the house and the surrounding community.

We had such a good time! None of us wanted to leave!

Holiday on the Harbor

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate enough to spend the Fourth of July at this lovely home in Gig Harbor. My highlight of the trip was coming home to dinners on the tree lined deck after day trip adventures (including whale watching at the San Juan islands!)

The home was spacious, yet cozy. I would highly recommend staying here and experiencing all that gig harbor as well as Washington have to offer!

Practically perfect

  • 5 of 5

A very nice, comfortable house close enough to Gig Harbor to walk (10 minutes to north harbor) but far away enough for very quiet evenings. A minor glitch was dealt with efficiently by the owner, and our stay was very enjoyable.

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!
