About Patricia A. LeBlanc

I truly enjoy being a concierge-style owner...meeting and greeting guests and making their stay here successful.

Faculty at a small college in Tacoma, I, too, love to travel, sail alot (weekly crew a J-109), ski, knit and quilt, and in the few moments remaining, try to occasionally bike, hike, weave and spin.

Patricia A. LeBlanc purchased this house in 1993

Why Patricia A. LeBlanc chose Gig Harbor

Come stay here and you'll see why!

What makes this house unique

I actually live just 4 miles away, but still enjoy time at 'Above Gig Harbor' for all the reasons described in the listing....primarily the hot tub, barbeque, workout room, the view, the gardens...and it's a great place to have a party.

Spectacular view of the harbor and snowcapped Mt. Rainer

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed and comfortable home with multiple outdoor living areas. Well stocked pantry with a number of coffee makers including French press as well as condiments and canned goods. House comes with board games, workout equipment and bicycles. Situated close to Gig Harbor's shopping, restaurants and bars as well as just a short drive to the interstate. Black tail deer will be munching on wild blackberries just a few feet away as you enjoy a cocktail in the hot tub at sunset.

Family Gathering for Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home, it was quite and the view was very calming as we were preparing for our daughters wedding and had lots of room for our family. Pat was awesome and easy to work with from the start to the finish of our stay. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to feel like they are at home. I am in the hospitality business and this was one of my best experiences. We will always rent a home instead of hotel rooms when we have a family gathering. Gig Harbor is beautiful and everything you need is very close. Thank you Pat for a wonderful stay in a beautiful home.

Fabulous Home with Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We rented this vacation home for the Oct. 8th Parents' Weekend at UPS. Pat met us at the house and walked us through all the wonderful amenities. The house is fully stocked and the linens were very cozy!

We hosted a BBQ for our son and his friends along with their families. The house is perfectly set up for a large gathering. Costco and Albertsons are close by in an upscale shopping area near the home. The highlight of the stay was the hot tub on the patio with a view of the harbor. We highly recommend this vacation property and look forward to future visits.

Working Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I found this property through a search of vacation homes in the Gig Harbor area to house a group of co-workers for a working weekend. In the past, we had stayed at a local hotel which proved expensive and did nothing for the casual evening banter that we enjoy after working as instructors a local fire department training event. Pat, the owner, was available throughout the weekend to answer any questions about the property and the house was absolutely perfect. Plenty of parking for our group of six and plenty of sleeping options for all. The living room, back deck area, and kitchen was the perfect gathering spot and there was more than enough seating even for additional visitors. Thank you Pat, we will be back again next year.

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic and exactly as described. We

chose this house initially for the view ( which is

superb). What we found when we arrived was that

as well as a spectacular view, the house was

superb. It had everything we could possibly have

wanted from great decor to comfortable furnishings

and a plethora of cooking utensils.

Allied to this there is the friendly owner Pat. She

was there to give us a guided tour when we arrived

and was always on hand should we have any

questions about the house or the surrounding area.

Her tips proved invaluable.

We had a wonderful time and hope to be back


Thanks for everything Pat

Great place to enjoy Gig Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed this vacation home. The kids loved the hot tub, the games provided, and the cool ladder up to their loft. The owner was very helpful. The view of the water from the back yard is beautiful. This house is unique and truly a home, not a sterile hotel room. With Costco, target and Albertson's within 10 minutes, it was easy to make meals here. There are lots of one and two step levels in the home, so would not be an easy place for a crawling baby or unsteady toddler, but our youngest was 5 and she loved it.

We would definitely recommend this home!
