"Such a great weekend getaway house. Far enough to feel like you are away from city life, but close enough for those quick after dinner ice cream runs to DQ. :) My family came here to celebrate family birthdays and had such a great time. We loved using the 2 kayaks and canoe that the owners have on the property and explored the surrounding areas, especially when it was high tide. Views are breathtaking, especially on a sunny day. House is right on the water, just steps away from the beach and there is a nice grass yard where you can play games. Owners were very accommodating and friendly, making sure that you have everything you need and even offering more than normal. We loved that they are pet friendly and enjoyed visits from the neighbor dog who we fondly referred to as "Bear." :) Such a great location for family reunions and can accommodate large groups of people easily. Thank you for sharing your lovely cabin!"

"We stayed in Gig Harbor at this amazing property while visiting family in Tacoma. Once you drive up to the property, you will not want to leave. In fact, my husband, who never sits still, said, " I will be right here in this chair overlooking the bay and the view of the mountain all weekend!" And that's exactly what we all did. It was so relaxing. The house is very well stocked with all you need for cooking and bbq'ing with nice, top of the line equipment. The bedrooms are clean, with nice, soft linens and comfortable beds. The house sits directly on the water and when the tide is out, the beach is perfect for searching for shells and "treasures".
It is a bit of a drive from the freeway exit, but not too far and well, well worth it once you arrive. Only about a 7-10 minute drive to downtown gig harbor where there are Great restaurants, shops, kayak and paddle boar d rentals.
John was so easy to work with and extremely responsive.
We look forward to staying here again. It is a special property!"

"My husband and I needed to be in the Tacoma area for work and could not have chosen a lovelier place to spend the month of June. The owners, Laura and Marty, are gracious and quite fun! I enjoy cooking and was never in need of anything while preparing a meal- the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. When I did not want to cook, it was easy to choose a restaurant from the many within walking distance. Walk a block to Fireman’s Park or just a bit further to Dock Street to enjoy not only water views, but also a picturesque view of Mt. Rainier. The bed is big and comfortable- a comfortable bed is important! Though a car is not necessary, Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Gig Harbor, and many wineries and breweries are easy to access with one. We live over 2,000 miles way and look forward to our next visit!"

"The house sits at the bottom of a hill right on the edge of the Puget Sound with no neighboring houses. There is something soothing about watching the tide current coming and going. My son and I enjoyed using the canoe several times and walking the beach. This huge house is well laid out with multiple places where you can get away by yourself or enjoy a group game or meal at the large table. While Shelton is nearby for shopping or a meal out, this is not a place for tourism seekers. Come with food because once you are there you won't want to leave this retreat."
