Overview

Gig Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom On The Beach

Welcome! This beautiful waterfront property is located on Horsehead Bay in Gig Harbor, WA. A tranquil setting between Tacoma and Bremerton and just 8 miles to downtown Gig Harbor, it is a perfect place for those looking for both comfort and relaxation at home, or adventures in and around town. Strike out on a wide variety of outings-from boutique shopping and fine dining to paddling and kayaking. Historic downtown Gig Harbor is a quaint town and home to Kelly’s Restaurant, Harbor History Museum, the Tides Tavern, Uptown Gig Harbor shopping center, and an active waterfront with seasonal festivals.

Horsehead Bay is a dream location. Walk on the dock, hop in a kayak right here for a paddle around Horsehead Bay and views of the Olympics and Mt. Rainier. Built in 2005, the property has living quarters with spacious accommodations that are flexible and loaded with amenities.

The 3-bedroom home offers a kitchen, living room, bedroom, ¾ bath, laundry room and an outdoor shower on the main floor. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms and a full bath. The beautiful yard offers waterfront access for kayaking and a beach for relaxation. Kayaks, paddleboat and great views of the bay from chairs at the beach! This is one of the only sandy beaches on the bay. Experience the tides coming in and out of the bay and the magnificent bird watching. There is also a play set for children located in the front yard. You can spread out in the spacious interior accommodations and get comfortable here. Also located on the bay, ½ mile down the beach is an all tides boat ramp if you wish to bring your boat. The local neighborhood market, the Arletta Store, is conveniently located less than 2 miles up the street. Selling groceries, gas, ice, and more. It even has milk crates full of tennis balls, baseballs, bats and mitts on loan for the neighborhood kids who use them across the street at the small ball field and tennis courts.

We are located in a rural residential neighborhood and we are committed to preserving the tranquility and property rights of those that live in the area. As such, we prefer longer-term rental agreements, but we accommodate shorter-term rentals with a signed rental agreement that ensures respect for nearby property and privacy. We are a good fit if you enjoy tranquility, and are respectful of persons, property and peaceful living.

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week's stay here this past August. We barely walked through the front door for the first time and our girls (10 and 12) were off to try out the paddle boards and meet the harbor seals. The layout of the house was great. Great deck, great views, great paddleboards and kayaks. We would definitely come back to this home again!

Fantastic property on secluded bay with every detail considered

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent property in a unique location. Our family of five stayed here for 4 nights in early spring, and wished we could have stayed longer. We've stayed in vacation rentals all over the world, and this was one of our top experiences.
The owners are great to work with, very friendly and helpful. They left a welcome basket for us with coffee, and instructions on everything were easy to read and complete. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck, and taking kayaks out on the bay. It's a beautiful home inside too, with great beds and sofas.

Beach house review

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful beach house . We found it very comfortable and cozy and really appreciated that we could have our two beloved dogs with us. The location was magical right on Gig Harbor surrounded by nature and wildlife and we even saw seals resting on the dock! Couldn't have asked for a better stay.

Horsehead Bay Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation at the Horsehead Bay rental property was wonderful! The house was well apportioned, spacious, and extremely well designed for family vacations. It was easy to see that efforts had been taken by the owners to enhance vacationers' experience, right down to staples stocked in the kitchen, and fluffy oversized beach towels. The house is much more beautiful than it looks on the internet, and the beach below affords lots of space for exploring at low tide. The private dock was a huge plus. The deer grazing outside added to everyone's enjoyment. We definitely plan on returning.

Perfect waterfront family home

  • 5 of 5
This house has all the amenities you could need for a fun relaxing stay. Our group consisted of my parents, my two teenagers and myself. The neighborhood is very quiet for reading and sleeping, while there is plenty to explore with the kayaks, SUP boards and paddleboat. The owners are not too far away for anything that you might request, and they are very kind and accommodating. Our stay was just too short, but we were able to have other family members come visit. All agreed that the location was wonderful for soaking up the sun, and enjoying meals together. Kitchen is well stocked... Upstairs bedrooms are spacious... downstairs bedroom has a slider that opens up to the deck (cool) ... appliances are new... fireplace is great.... wildlife is abundant (sea lions, deer, birds). The nearest stores/ movie theater/ restaurants are about 15 minutes away with traffic, the Narrows Bridge, just a bit more, but the home is far enough out that you feel you've gotten away from the hussle bustle. I would certainly rent this home again and recommend it to a friend. Thank you Chris and Mary!
