There is a table that seats 4 with 2 more seats that can be added as well as a patio table on the spacious deck. Eat out on the deck and watch the sun set and then watch the stars come out in all their glory.

Hi, my name is Sandra and I am a transplant from Florida who has come to fully appreciate the incredible beauty of this area of the country. I have been privileged to be a full-time homemaker for 17 years now and this is my first venture into a business that enables me to continue to take care of my family's needs.

Sandra purchased this house in 2012

If you stay at Foxview you will see a newspaper article about my father who was a fisherman in the panhandle of Florida. I have many fond memories of days out on the shrimp boat with him. This place sort of brings my two worlds together - it reminds me of my upbringing and many happy days in the Florida sun in the midst of this beautiful setting of this amazing little town of Gig Harbor with its fishing industry background. We actually live on the Tacoma side of the bridge, but come over almost daily with my kids' kayak team involvement. I never grow tired of the beautiful drive across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge or the many interesting sights along the waterfront. When we gave thought to purchasing a vacation rental to rent out and use ourselves, Gig Harbor was the first place we thought of and looked.

We liked this home because it is a pretty little home, but even more than that, with the many windows and large deck it actually becomes almost more like a frame you look through and see the incredible beauty of the water and evergreen trees before you.

FAMILY GET AWAY

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed several days at this upstairs duplex. The view is very good and the deck very large and nice. The house is comfortable with a well appointed kitchen. The trundle beds are not comfortable for adults, but smaller children may not care. The mattresses are so soft the springs can be felt through them. Otherwise its a great stay. Its a pleasant drive into Gig Harbor and far enough to be very peaceful and quiet. The restaurants are quite good and there is shopping and a movie theater close by.

WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPIER!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Fox View was very quiet and relaxing. The home was very clean and comfortable. The appliances were new and all in working order. The furniture is very comfortable and you feel at home from the minute you arrive. The owners are very helpful and easy to work with. We highly recommend this rental!

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect. The view from the deck was beautiful looking out onto the fox island bridge and the water. I couldn't have asked for more. The house was also very well maintained and comfortable. Tthe owner is very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend the property to anyone visiting the Gig Harbor area and recommend visiting the Tides, Anthony's, 7 Seas brewery and renting Kayaks. We also visited the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park which is definitely worth visiting and less than an hour away. The Bremerton Ferry is also less than an hour away and takes you right into Seattle for touring and sight-seeing in the big city.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our young family. The kids had a great time eating dinner on the deck and watching some fun Netflix shows. The house was close enough to everything you need, but felt like you were away from it all. We will definitly be returning next year for another fun weekend.

We were totally pleased with our time there. It is quiet and a great alternative to Seattle which we found crowded. We will be back in the future.

This is such a unique, beautiful area of our country. Its easy to see why Gig Harbor was named the 5th best small town in America. The harbor area has so many activities, a museum, weekly summer concerts, quaint shops and restaurants, the national championship kayak/canoe racing team of which two of my kids are members :-) ..., and then the Uptown shopping area with its many stores and movie theater. Foxview is located on the west side of the peninsula overlooking Fox Island, 12 minutes from the harbor and 8 minutes from Uptown. It is in a private, quiet area in the midst of towering fir trees and a partial view of the bridge and the Puget Sound. Of course it is also an easy day trip to Tacoma, Seattle, Mount Rainer, skiing, ocean... each with their own huge list of attractions.
