Why Erika chose Puget Sound

If you're looking for a place to fit family, extended family and/or friends, groups, etc; this is it! Comfortable, quiet but close to downtown Gig Harbor, Uptown Gig Harbor, Gig Harbor North and minutes to Tacoma and Bremerton.

What makes this house unique

Our unique features include great big bedrooms that have room for your whole group to roam comfortably. Although we sit on 2 1/2 acres of prestine seclusion, we are less than 5 minutes to the town of Gig Harbor, Gig Harbor North, Olalla and the beaches.

What a perfect gathering spot for my family to connect. Quiet and serene location. Gorgeous forest surround the property. Home is large and spacious . Family flying in from Romania were quite impressed as well. Would definitely stay in this area again to see the sights of Seattle and surrounding islands. Erika was very accommodating! We all thank you!

A place to make memories with your loved ones!!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we have a family reunion and this year we stayed at the Erika and Jay's Gig Harbor house. Immediately when you get there you feel like you are in an enchanted place - the beautiful tree lined yard to run around in, the fire pit, the cozy covered grill area, the jacuzzi....not to mention REALLY comfortable beds. And a piano for sing-a-longs.

Erika was so easy to schedule with and we are so grateful we found this home. Thank you!

Prepare to be Amazed

  • 5 of 5

First of all let me start by giving credit where credit is due... The owners, Erika and Jay. from the start they were available to answer any question or concerns I had which helped us tremendously with the planning and logistics while using VRBO for the first time and let me tell you, that experience was well worth the time, effort and cost.

The occasion, my daughters graduation party which she was kinda sorta expecting us to have for her but... not in this fashion or expectation! We needed the perfect location and Gig Harbor or more precisely, the Del Mar Chateau provided the perfect backdrop to a surprise gathering of family and friends that have been apart for over 10 years. This beautiful home is nestled amongst the hillside surrounded by immense pines and clean air, which does have a calming effect on all those able to experience this wonderful setting. The location is quiet and serene whether day or night with the occasional callout from the local wildlife letting you know they're in the area as well. Stores and shops are all within minutes of the property which is nice for those out-of-towners that don't like to travel too far from places unknown. The drive around the area is pleasant offering beautiful views and limited traffic.

Okay, as I mentioned in my review title "Prepare to be amazed", well yes... The unanimous consensus amongst everyone was "The pictures don't do it justice." Everyone, and I mean everyone who entered this home was in for a surprise and you will be too. Needless to say, this home provided my immediate family a place we could all relax, rekindle old memories and catch up on present into the future. If you are looking for the perfect setting for a quiet getaway that offers everything one would need to host a large family, this is your place. The furnishing is ample and provides for every occasion whether it be entertaining large groups or just your immediate family.

Erika and Jay, My Ohana and I would like to thank you very much for everything... You both went above and beyond!

Came to Gig Harbor with three generations for a wedding, and this house was perfect. Beautiful inside and out with a ton of space. Great beds, private, enjoyed the hot tub and the gazebo. Very good location. Planning to return soon.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently rented the Del Mar Chateau for a family reunion and the home was everything as advertised. The home was very spacious offering 3 floors of living space, huge patio and yard for everyone to enjoy. The 6 bedrooms were all large, spacious and comfortable. Our kids enjoyed the play structure in the backyard, exploring the woods, and running around. The adults enjoyed the hot tub and large patio. Erika was always very responsive to my questions and she made everything run smoothly. I would highly recommend the home if you have a large family or get together in the Gig Harbor/Olalla area. It's a nice perk that the home is located within a few minutes from shopping , Highway 16 and ferry routes.
