Property description

Rent for 30 days or more and pay no sales tax!
This cozy a-frame getaway is perfect for a couple's getaway or especially for an extended stay in the area. It is 2000 square feet 2 bedroom +, 2 bathroom home, with a full washer and dryer. It is near historic downtown Gig Harbor, within walking distance (if you like hills) to great restaurants, marinas, wine bars, yoga studios, shopping, coffee shops, and parks. Our Gig Harbor home comes with everything you need for a great getaway; wireless internet, flat screen TV with cable, dvds, and so much more. Nice parking on the quiet street in front of our home and a short walk up the scenic driveway and you can feel right at home. The home has an awesome deck to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We fell in love with Gig Harbor, and our home will be the perfect place for others who wish to explore the community.
It is located 0.7 miles from the harbor and Anthony's restaurant, Devoted Kiss breakfast and lunch, Marketplace grille, and Finholms deli. Within a mile are kayak rentals, paddle board and boat rentals, Donkey Creek Park and the Gig Harbor history museum. You will want to walk to everything, especially if you like hills. The Gig Harbor summer concerts and events and the world famous Tides Tavern and Green Turtle waterfront fine dining are less than two miles away. Several great golf courses nearby including Chambers Bay, which will be the site for the 2015 U.S. Open.

Sound/bay fishing
Fly fishing
Fitness center

The unique benefits at this house: Close to everything, large space, amazing deck, near parks, walking paths, shopping and restaurants, history museum. This home gives you the real feel of the pacific northwest along with all the amenities of Gig Harbor. Free high speed wifi, cable TV, washer/dryer, air conditioning, and everything else you need for a week or a month of enjoyment.

There is plenty of fun to be had nearby, should you wish to go exploring. Tacoma is a 20 minute drive away. The Tacoma Art Museum and Chihuly's Glass Museum are nearby. Explore the quaint towns of Poulsbo and Port Orchard or take the ferry from Bremerton to Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. Gig Harbor is an excellent location for exploring the Olympic Peninsula and the many islands of the area.

'We enjoyed so much staying in your cabin. The location here in Gig Harbor is ideal and the setting amongst the trees feels like we are in a tree house! Thank you for helping us have a beautiful vacation, and spend time with our family here in Washington!'
-Guest quote (May 2013)

'Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Gig Harbor is the perfect location for a family vacation. We easily visited remote locations on the Olympic Peninsula as well as the mountains, shops, and restaurants in Seattle and Tacoma. The Gig Harbor community itself is welcoming and friendly.

We loved our time in the Pacific Northwest and are grateful for the opportunity to experience your beautiful home. Hope to return next year!'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We purchased this property as a get-away when we found out our oldest son and his wife were having a baby (they live in Seattle). We are active and love to hike, walk, and golf. Find this to be a truly relaxing getaway.

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor:
We saw this house and instantly fell in love with the cozy feel of the space, as well as the entire village of Gig Harbor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is truly unique due to the proximity of the heart of Gig Harbor, as well as the true Pacific Northwest feel of the view of the fir trees from the A-Frame Home. We'd be happy to have you enjoy this home as your own for a week or a month or a season.
