About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible sofa bed, 1 full Bath, washer/dryer-Sleeps 4

This cozy apartment is right in the town of Gig Harbor, WA. Walk to the Harbor or just enjoy spending time inside. Landscape lighting to indoor mood lighting, it's romantic and warm. We're located in a safe neighborhood where you can walk to anything, or take the bus.

The apartment is well stocked with everything you will need to stay a day, week or month, from silverware to linens. Cook up a batch of cookies on one of our rainy days or explore our mountain ranges on a sunny day hike.

Perfect for a single or couple at rates half of the local hotels with pure comfort and privacy. A full bath and laundry room. Plenty of storage. A new DVD library and iphone speaker charging station, we've got it all. If you need the apartment for one or two nights and I have a opening between renters, give me a call or contact me, it may be available for short stays.

We are 1 mile from St. Anthony's new hospital and the YMCA. Just minutes from the freeway to Seattle, Tacoma or Olympia.

The Harbor offers a full day of antiquing, picnicking or just watch the fishing boats come in.

About Barbara Graham

Hi, I'm Barbara and a gardener at heart. I'm a graphic designer and work from home. We love the trails in the neighborhood and the summers here in Washington just can't be beat. Come visit us in Gig Harbor, you'll experience lots of green.

Barbara Graham purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Barbara Graham chose Puget Sound

Gig Harbor is quickly growing and I saw the need for a fully furnished and completely supplied apartment for professionals moving here. A lot of visitors come for a few days or a week to see if they like the area, then come back and rent for a few months to settle in.

What makes this apartment unique

The best thing about this apartment is that it is quiet and very private. Nestled in a safe neighborhood in the trees yet minutes to everything going on in Gig Harbor. All the lighting is dimmed for a unique ambiance at night and the tile work is custom, it's just beautiful to be here. All you need is your suitcase, everything else is supplied from sheets to silverware. If you are looking for a long term (3 months or more) all utilities are paid.

Cozy get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three nights, while I was enjoying a reunion at UPS. The apartment has absolutely everything - from an extremely well stocked kitchen to fast Internet. The bed was most comfortable. The apt. is attached to a rental home - surrounded by beautiful landscaping, nestled in a lovely quiet neighborhood.

The only negative is that while we were there, the attached house was hosting young guests, whose footsteps were quite audible. Otherwise, I would highly recommend staying here. Although I didn't meet Barb, she was but minutes away via phone or e-mail. She was very helpful with anything question we had.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, it really helps to see where we can improve our place. After you two left we added a thick, wall to wall carpet in the main house hall to stop any noise. I can tell a big difference right away. Hope you come back soon. Barb.

Convenient location in Gig Haror

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cottage for four days and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage is ideal for two people and was nicely equipped. Although attached to the main house it is very quiet and private and the garden and trees added extra privacy. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay and the bed was comfortable. Although historic Gig Harbor is fairly close I would recommend having a vehicle as it is rather hilly and would not be a pleasant walk/ride in inclement weather. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and loved Gig Harbor itself. I would recommend this cottage for single travelers or a couple.

Garden Home in Gig Harbor, WA

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 days and found everything very much to our liking. This apartment size home, while attached to a main house, presents itself as very private and somewhat secluded yet is within a very short drive (or a pleasant walk/bike) from all the dining, shopping and sightseeing activities Gig Harbor has to offer. Easy access to the nearby "Interstate" makes for easy connection to the Tacoma/Seattle/Bremerton metro areas. The home is properly described as a Garden Home as it is surrounded by lush greenery and landscaping even including a small fenced area with barbecue and furniture. The interior is very comfortable and very clean. Every amenity , from extra bedding to a blender to an electric fireplace, seems to have been thought of and provided. The owner responded quickly every time to any questions we had prior to arrival and upon arrival we found the provided tenants info booklet fully stocked with all the information we needed to make for an enjoyable stay.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Usually we stay at a hotel when we are visiting relatives in the area, but this year decided to rent this cottage. We were so pleased that we did. The cottage is well laid out and fully stocked with everything you need (especially the kitchen), in a very pretty and quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is open to the living room, which has an electric fireplace to warm up the home. The bed was very comfortable, there was plenty of room to move around, and having the washer and dryer for our laundry was very handy. I can't say enough about how accommodating the owner was; we had a few questions when we arrived and she returned our emails immediately. Our security deposit was also refunded in a very timely manner. The only minor thing is that one bedroom wall is shared with the main house, which is also rented. We heard voices one night, but not enough to bother us, and no more than you would hear from an adjacent room if you were staying at a hotel.

I would highly recommend this home.
