Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We are Linda & Dave, long time Washington residents with four grown children and five grandkids. We travel a majority of the year, mainly to Arizona and Alaska.

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor:
Linda was born in the area and we have family here. We enjoy the island's country style living that is 15 minutes from Gig Harbor, yet far enough away to easily forget the hustle and bustle.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our kids loved island life and enjoyed the water so this was the perfect spot for them; its small, safe and friendly. We are within walking distance of a playground at Nichols Community Center. Access to the island is by a bridge for convenience, yet ferries are close by that service other islands and Seattle.
