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.

Beautiful Home for Large /extended families

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at your home in Gig Harbor. It was even nicer than the photos show.

The rooms are all large and spacious, and it was so much more enjoyable for large family gatherings than numerous hotel rooms would have been. Most bedrooms were so large they even had their own sofa/ or sitting chairs.

All the bedrooms are larger than the typical hotel room.

And the house was better equipped than any home I have rented in the past, having everything you need for an enjoyable vacation.

The front porch, deck, BBQ, hot tub, and gazebo for outdoor times were terrific.

I would recommend this home for anyone needing to stay in the University Place/ Tacoma/Gig harbor area, especially for large families.

There are eight of us guys that attend our annual golf trip and this home works perfect for us.the space is great the rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are along with the rest of the house is very clean.

The location is a little drive away from the golf course but comforts are worth the extra drive,the hot tub is a big hit after playing two rounds of golf,and the kitchen space is great we will be booking again as long has we are golfing in this area.

Thank you Erika for sharing your home with us.

The property was beautiful. It was on a private road and was stunning and peaceful, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. We rented the house for family and groomsmen for my son's wedding. There was more than enough room. The groomsmen didn't want to share beds but there were plenty of couches and beds in the large bedrooms so no one ended up on the floor. The kitchen was large, the family room had plenty of space - it was great!!!!

We also enjoyed the hot tub, bbq area, patio, and fire pit outside. The play structure looked fun too but we didn't have any little ones staying with us.

The owners were more than helpful, providing sleeping bags and extra blankets for the groomsmen. They were even willing to add propane to the bbq if we ran out.

We are hoping to return for a family reunion next year. I would highly recommend this rental. Everything was perfect, even better than the photos! I would rate 10 stars if I could. :)

Thank you so much!

Spacious, well designed with large individual rooms and nicely decorated home.

  • 5 of 5

With our large group, I was concerned about parking. Upon arrival, it was apparent that was by no means a problem. Parking is plentiful. Since our group has retreats annually, we have seen several types of accommodations. Almost always, there is the problem of who gets the small room or the odd room. The design of this home is well suited to groups as all the bedrooms are large and well appointed. As described by the owners, the very top room is complete with a ping-pong table. Kids would love that room, I think. The dining, kitchen and family rooms are in an open concept and very well suited to large groups like ours. There is a small, comfy room just inside the entrance that is perfect for a small group to meet or get away quietly. The property is privately situated, so outdoor activities remain private. I appreciated this as I dipped into the hot tub. There is a large outdoor area that is covered and for those who enjoy a campfire, there is a fire pit. All in all, this property pretty much perfectly suited our ten person adult group.

Spacious and comfortable amidst the greenery

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of group of 11 adults, and found the home quite roomy- more so than the pictures convey. Erika supplied a folding table (complete with table cloth) which allowed us all to sit down to dinner together and not be clashing elbows- there was plenty of room to leave the table in place. Bedrooms were all nicely decorated, beds comfy and linens good quality. Wifi worked well. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit out back, and even had some lawn games. The house feels very private and in the woods, but really a quick trip to charming Gig Harbor, or Bremerton for the ferry to Seattle. We even did a day trip to the Olympic National Park, which was spectacular and snowy. Highly recommend this rental, thanks Erika!

Massive, Secluded, Perfect for large getaways

  • 5 of 5

We had a golf weekend with 10 guys. This place was perfect. Spacious house with plenty of sleeping space. A large kitchen. Lots of parking. Close to some great golf. It is also a very private location, tucked away in the woods. Commercial areas are about 10 minutes away, which is convenient.

We couldn't have asked for anything more. The owner is extremely helpful and very communicative. All of our needs were met. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat.
