Gig Harbor house description
If you want to be on the beach and in a large traditional Northwest home this is your place. It is clean and well lit with lots of windows. There are decks on every floor and on both sides of the building so you get morning and afternoon sun.
But the best part is by far the beach. Just walk the short flat path and you find yourself on a gravelly beach with wonderful West facing views. There is an old covered beach sitting area where you can sit down with a good book and watch the tides come in and out.
Inside, the home is immaculately decorated with all the modern convinces. There are three bedrooms and two baths and the home sleeps up to 12. The kitchen is modern with all features and fully stocked with pots, pans, dinner ware and anything else you need.
There is a ton to do in Gig Harbor, like exploring the many Art Galleries, Boutiques and fine restaurants, or taking a harbor tour. Nearby Allyn boasts a PGA golf course at Lakeland Village, and Kayak and boat rentals are available in Allyn or Belfair, both about seven miles from the home. Port Orchard, just 15 minutes away, is a Mecca for those interested in antiques and treasure hunting. The downtown waterfront offers shopping, museums, entertainment, galleries and dining, with ferry access from Bremerton and Seattle
This location is like being in the Garden of Eden with mature fir, cedar trees, a terraced garden full of native plants and even a vibrant waterfall, and all of it just minutes from all the fun you could imagine.

We arrived and there were dirty dishes in the dishwasher along with broken glass. The grill was not cleaned and in horrible shape. The DVD player did not work. The worst part was the house alarm that decided to go off at 3am on the 2nd night of our stay. We were not given any instructions as to the alarm ever being armed and there were no instructions to turn it off. We called the number the booking agency gave us if there were any problems. We were directed to a voicemail. No response. After checkout, I informed the booking agency of all these problems via email. I received a reply that they will pass on my email to "customer service". I did not hear anything back. 7 months later my credit card was charged for $131 for a broken light fixture and replacing 2 sheets. The email informed me to contact the Manager if I wished to dispute the charge. I am disputing the charge. There was no contact info for a Manager on the email or the bill. I contacted IStay which would not give me any contact info for the Manager and instead forwarded me onto the voicemail for "customer service". I also was informed that in order to dispute this they will have to get an affidavit from the cleaning company and they will then inform me of their findings. None of this was included in the notice of the bill. Only reference to contact the Manager. Meanwhile, I'm out $131 while IStay "processes this dispute". Other than that, nice view.

The photos accurately reflect the property, the views were beautiful and relaxing. The house was spacious and accommodated our family very well. We enjoyed watching the playoffs in the family room, which provided adequate room for everyone to sit comfortably. There were four things that were not up to par, the doors on the backside of the house did not lock well and it left us feeling unsecured. The lock was on the screen doors not the french doors which meant easy access, we are from S. Florida where the doors are locked every night. The house had multiple entrances even from the attic and the doors did not seem to lock, I was afraid to leave valuables (laptop, etc) while we visited the Tacoma and Seattle areas. The neighbor had two sheep dogs that met you on the path to the lake, one would growl and the other ran away. The owner of the dogs apologized but my parents were afraid to walk down the path after at least two encounters with the dogs. Some of the appliances were not cleaned to my satisfaction, the coffee pot had mildew and the waffle maker was greasy. We did not walk around the house with shoes, however there were a few stains in the carpet that lead me to believe that the previous guests did not follow the no shoe rule. Those small discrepancies were minor compared to the space we had in the house verses a hotel room.
