After moving 7 times in 9 years, we settled in Gig Harbor in this beautiful home to allow our two kids to complete their schooling. It's a wonderful community with much to enjoy. Our stay since 2002 is the longest of anywhere, including WI, CA (Southern & Northern), IL, NC, CO and KY. The kids have been gone a few years. We travel for work and pleasure and the empty nest felt like it needed more family laughter. It's been wonderful having families of all sizes stay here for their vacations, wedding events and weekend getaways. We love the notes they leave us of appreciation, along with the reviews they provide here.
As a business consultant, it's fun to have this little side business and to watch how this newer "trust" industry is allowing people to travel, explore and share in ways we might never have considered when we first moved in. We decided to offer our home for rental because we enjoyed staying at other vrbo properties and realized it was a viable option. It's nice to participate in this new adventure with others.
Lisa M. purchased this house in 2002
This home has been a sanctuary for our family and friends since 2002. In the last few years, our rental guests have enjoyed the same tranquility and amenities that make this home a joy to live in. The location is perfect for feeling like you are away from it all, while still being positioned perfectly to enjoy the Pacific Northwest--up to Bellingham and down to Portland in day trips. You can't see a neighbor. Trees and critters are your daily view.
If you love to cook, the well-stocked kitchen will delight you, and everyone can join in the fun without feeling crowded. Rooms are spacious and functional. Every one who comes relaxes immediately. You will too.
Lisa's home was a great place to stay with my sister and her family, who were visiting from the Chicago area. We also brought our dog. There was plenty of room for all, with comfortable places to relax, including the wonderful covered porch with large patio table and chairs. The yard was a great place to walk our dog and for the kids to play. The kids enjoyed the games and TV in the bonus room. We loved cooking in the beautiful and well-stocked kitchen and on the propane grill. Lisa was extremely helpful and gracious in her emails. Would recommend this home.
We spent a wonderful weekend at Lisa’s beautiful home. The property is quiet and peaceful and a perfect place to relax. Lisa was great to deal with and extremely helpful. If you are looking for a great place to get away, I would highly recommend it.
We travelled to Washington for my daughter's wedding in August and were thrilled with our stay at Lisa's beautiful property in Gig Harbor. The house is just lovely and Lisa had it well stocked to meet all of our needs. We slept 10 people comfortably and were able to entertain 40 with ease for a BBQ. Lisa's kitchen has everything you need to prepare any meal that you need and her covered porch and back yard couldn't have worked out better! In fact, the porch was my favorite and I spent time every morning with my coffee and a book (borrowed from her book shelf) before the busy day began. I loved the wooded, secluded location and yet it was just a few miles from Gig Harbor and not far from Tacoma and Seattle area.
We stayed at this rental for a week in August 2014 and it was fabulous! The house is big and very homey - it has a nice comfortable feel. It was clean and had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay. I definitely consider it a home away from home :)
I loved that there was a bedroom for both our kids and were able to take our puppy with us. We all had privacy and quiet and it was very nice not being all crowded into a hotel room together.
The house stays cool on the lower level and there are fans on the higher floor. It has a beautiful huge kitchen and nice area to watch tv and relax. The yard is large and the entire property is surrounded by trees and bushes, so it feels like you are out in the country. It is a bit confusing to find the house at first, but once we got there we set a pin on the map app on our phone and were able to get there and back easily.
The owner is very nice and accommodating, helping with any questions. We would definitely stay here again!
