Gig Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

If you want to be on the beach and in a large traditional Northwest home this is your place. It is clean and well lit with lots of windows. There are decks on every floor and on both sides of the building so you get morning and afternoon sun.

But the best part is by far the beach. Just walk the short flat path and you find yourself on a gravelly beach with wonderful West facing views. Take a stroll down to the beach and sit down with a good book to watch the tides come in and out.

The bay is shallow and, unlike many salt water locations, the water gets warm enough to swim in. In fact, the owners do it for hours. Or bring your boat. You can actually beach it right up by the sitting area at high tide.

Inside, the home is immaculately decorated with all the modern convinces. There are three bedrooms and two baths and the home sleeps up to 12. The kitchen is modern with all features and fully stocked with pots, pans, dinner ware and anything else you need. Be sure to bring briquettes for the charcoal BBQ.

There is a ton to do in Gig Harbor, like exploring the many Art Galleries, Boutiques and fine restaurants, or taking a harbor tour.

Nearby Allyn boasts a PGA golf course at Lakeland Village, and Kayak and boat rentals are available in Allyn or Belfair, both about seven miles from the home. Port Orchard, just 15 minutes away, is a Mecca for those interested in antiques and treasure hunting.

The downtown waterfront offers shopping, museums, entertainment, galleries and dining, with ferry access from Bremerton and Seattle

This location is like being in the Garden of Eden with mature fir, cedar trees, a terraced garden full of native plants and even a vibrant waterfall, and all of it just minutes from all the fun you could imagine.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was incredible. Everything in the house was super cleaned up. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We all want to thank you for such a well kept place and making us feel welcome. I would definitely look into this property again should a scenario come up where we need to stay in the area. Thanks!

This is a beautiful house in a lovely location which we very much enjoyed staying in. There are a few maintenance issues which can be easily sorted out by the manager but these did not diminish our enjoyment of our stay.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

The setting is beautiful but home was actually 28 minutes from the town of Gig Harbor. There were so many things that seemed to need fixing like one of the kitchen cupboard doors fell off when my husband went to get a pan out. The bannister on the stairs is about to fall over. The carpets were dirty. There was a refrigerator downstairs that had food that smelled like it was rotting. Half the lights don't work. The BBQ is not useable and they said there was a burn ban in effect. Fireplace doesn't work, downstairs or master bedroom. Although it says they have satellite TV I was told that they have not had it in years. The beds were the worst beds I have ever slept in you can hear and feel springs every time you move. They have rules posted everywhere and fees for everything. The contract is full of threats so many rules and fees and everything is in their favor like if anything is broken or doesn't work when you arrive. Not their fault! The actual booking was started on this website and as I found out two days before when we had not gotten any info I was booked through a different company. So I actually booked through another site unknowingly not related to homeaway. and there was no evidence that I booked with anyone at homeaway. It took me at least ten calls on the thurs before our departure to get the info to get in emailed to me. They said sometimes it gets blocked or into my spam folder which was not the case. Oh my favorite rule/fee is there is a non emergency fee if called during non business hours. So if anything that isn't already broken breaks too bad. You can only call if it is water or essential repairs like flooding. But if you don't call them when something is broken you can be charged a fee. I took video before and after of this place just for this purpose. The worst part is it's a beautiful location and house it just needs to be fixed up. I have never had a problem in the 10 plus years I have been renting vacation homes with VRBO and Homeaway. Sorry to say this was a stinker. Needs work!
