Property description

FABULOUS Mt Rainier/Harbor/Town/Puget Sound/Valley/Crescent Ridgeline Views! Beautifully restored, classic cottage. Tiny; only 450 square feet, but amazing! Newly decorated (just removed /replaced all ceilings to put in custom lighting), paint (taupe with white trim), taupe carpeting, new ceramic bath with glass corner shower, nearly-new, white kitchen appliances with new, 'oak' laminate floor, decks with outdoor furniture on 3 sides, all with views. Deer graze in the valley off the back deck and may walk through the yard to get there!

Yardwork (lawns and garden) maintained by professional gardener. Just above the Harbor...spotlessly clean and well-maintained. You will love this property! Furnished with new furniture (including a fullsize hide-a-bed couch, queen pillow-top mattress bed, deck furniture on 3 sides, classic leather barrel swivel chair). Designer linens, dishes, cookware & small appliances...EVERYTHING you could want for a fun and/or relaxed stay. Perfect one person retreat or romantic couple get-away ....a classic honeymoon cottage. You may want to come alone for a quiet escape; still with plenty to do nearby. This is the place to read a book or to write one!

Also notice VRBO listing #188445 - 'Above Gig Harbor'. This is an adjoining property (just across a large lawn). The two together could accomodate a very large group!

Either or both of these properties would be the perfect 2015 U.S. Open Golf Tournament accomodations! Very close to Chambers Bay Golf Course and a wonderful place to return to at the end of each day. Call me if you're looking for a place to stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: A long-time residential rental property owner, getting to design and furnish the large view home ('Above Gig Harbor' - VRBO 188445) was so much fun, I decided to also restore and decorate the adjoining cottage as a vacation rental. I am single, faculty at a small college in Tacoma, sail, hike, ski, a quilter, knitter, hand-weaver. I'm a concierge-style owner and love to meet and chat with guests (and potential guests) and answer questions or requests to facilitate your memorable stay here. I look forward to meeting you.

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor:
I live just 4 miles from the cottage. Come to Gig Harbor and see for yourself why folks live/vacation here!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The sun, the views, the gardens, the privacy...it's a great retreat spot.
