A great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, very comfortable house in a dramatic setting -- surrounded by tall Douglas fir trees and an arm of Puget Sound. The best thing about it, however, is its accessibility to everything that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. It's within easy driving distance of two of the nation's most spectacularly beautiful national parks -- Mount Rainier and Olympic. The mountain views and old growth forests alone are worth a stay here. The Sound is calm and picturesque, but open-ocean beaches on the Olympic Peninsula are relative close if you want to see pounding surf and wide sandy beaches. Gig Harbor itself is a cute village with an active fishing fleet, boat rentals, great views of Rainier and numerous restaurants. Nearby Tacoma is an underrated city with several good museums, seafood restaurants and Hello Cupcake, our favorite bakery. Seattle is also a convenient's the kind of vibrant city that has the best of everything in its region, including the best baguettes, seafood, pastry and produce at the public market. Seattle is a one-hour drive up the I-5, but we found it more relaxing to take the shorter trip north on Highway 16 to Southworth and then catch the ferry to West Seattle. We stayed there for several months and found everything we needed for longer-term housekeeping, including an adequately equipped kitchen. Owners Lynette and Steve were personable and helpful. In short, this is a great place for a weekend stay or longer.

beautiful location

  • 3 of 5

The setting is a spectacular waterfront property. The lawn and woods are beautiful. The house itself has a nice layout with views from the family-kitchen-dining area. The house itself is functional, but it has a lot of deferred maintenance.

Beautiful setting and comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

This beach house was perfect for our family of 6. The location is stunning, far enough from town to feel away from it all but not to far to run into town for supplies. The house is very comfortable and the view from the tall Windows is spectacular. All of the rooms were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The only challenge was trying to cook with the 50's era oven and stove, we had planned on cooking all of our meals at the house and that was tricky. The BBQ was great though and the outdoor furniture was perfect for eating outdoors. The fire pit on the beach was another great gathering spot in the evenings, beautiful!

Owner's Response: the views are amazing! so glad to hear you and your family had a wonderful time. Plenty of room outdoors for games and enjoying the view and indoors is comfortable and spacious for families. The beach house built in 1964 is a Frank Lloyd Wright style and the built -in 1960's Thermador stove is unique but fully functional. the house has a cabin and comfy feel to it.

Comfortable home with spectacular setting and view.

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable two bedroom home. The entire front of the home is glass with spectacular view of the beach area and water. The patio and yard are great for entertaining and relaxing. The living area is open concept. The kitchen is well equipped but dated. The Master has a queen sized bed and the other bedroom has two bunks with queen bottoms and single tops. The owner was responsive to the few questions that we had during our visit. The four of us were comfortable and enjoyed our stay here. We will definitely consider coming back.

We enjoyed the water view and relaxing atmosphere here at this house. It was a great location and the front yard was just yards away from the beach.

Lovely view, good place for an elderly dad,

  • 4 of 5

Brought my 98 year Dad out for a change of scenery. The view is beach level and will not disappoint. Accessible shower with seat and grab bars was very helpful. Kitchen is well stocked. I have no problem with the vintage oven - as I see others have been wary of it. It's an art piece and functions just fine. Easy to get to Gig Harbor and nice and quiet.

Owner's Response: The house works great for those with disabilities because it does not have stairs to enter or exit the house. One bathroom was built to accommodate a wheelchair for an average size person. The vintage stove is original but maintained. The beach house was built in 1964 and has been maintained in its original form except for some modern updates.
