Property description

Just 5 minutes outside the heart of Gig Harbor and 15 minutes from the Narrows Bridge is Sunrise Beach. The view is so beautiful that it takes your breath away! The Sunrise Beach enclave of 22 homes was established at the turn of the century. It was accessible only by boat until 1960. Eight homes still use the path from the old ferry landing to their land locked waterfront.

Originally built in 1924 at the water's edge the home was completely remodeled in 2007. It boasts a beautiful kitchen with large great room all with 180+ degree views of the Puget Sound. The home has slate floors, granite counters and stainless appliances. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has queen bed. Large comfy couch can sleep two if needed. Large bathroom with two sinks, slate shower and washer and dryer. Detached large two car garage with tv/bonus area in the back. Great getaway for the kids. This garage has no facilities but has two convertible futon couches. The home's large wrap around deck is right on the bulkhead! Full under cover outdoor couch on the deck with a table top heater to let you enjoy the beautiful view longer into the evenings. If you want to enjoy the seating on the deck in winter let us know so we can have it available.

At low tide there are miles of walking beaches each direction to collect shells and other treasures. At high tide the water gently splashes against the bulkhead. Sunrise Beach county park is a short walk away. The best diving spot in the area with a 30-60 foot deep reef running 200 feet along the shore (Google Sunrise Beach WA Diving). Dive boats drop divers most weekends at the reef - fun to watch or join them. A Buoy for mooring your boat is out front.

Feels like the San Juan Islands (80 miles north by boat) without being locked on a small island with no amenities. Tacoma waterfront restaurants are 15 minutes away by boat and they have docks. Eagles, seagulls, seals, sea lions, and the occasional whale travel Colvos passage between the beach home and Vashon Island. Kayaks and big boats travel by constantly. 180+ degree view of it all inside or outside of this beautiful home.

Large hot tub next to the water to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the beautiful sunset reflecting off of Mt. Rainier and the full moon rising shortly after. Wake up to the increadible sunrise on Sunrise Beach! Email us for more incredible photos. Your stay will be unforgettable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: John and Shelley - we enjoy our beach house as much as our guests! We chose Sunrise Beach because it has it all - Great views, on the water, sandy beach, miles of walking beaches, history, close to everything.

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor:
The view was first discovered and documented by Captain Vancouver's 1792 expedition. There is a large historical marker from 1930 on the spot where the expedition made their sketch of Mt. Rainier in the ship's journal. The Tacoma Historical Society in 1930 matched the spot to the sketch. The marker says 'May 26, 1782; John Sykes Vancouver expedition sketched the bay and the mountain from this site. Aug 22, 1853; Theodore Winthrop crossed from the west passage to the Narrows. He saw the reflection of the mountain on the water and wrote: 'The Siwash call it Tacoma''

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach house is svery relaxing. It is at the end of Sunrise Beach Drive so there is never any road noise. You are at the waters edge to just sit back and enjoy. The amenities of Costco, Albertson's, and Starbucks are 5 miles away.
