About the property

Not available for weddings, large events or one-night bookings.

This property does not have air conditioning. Because Del Mar Harbor View is located a block up from the harbor, many times the cool breeze reaches the wrap around decks and open windows.

Because of the tight knit neighborhood, a maximum of twelve (12) people are allowed at this property at any given time, this includes overnight and daytime guests/visitors.

The House:

Del Mar Harbor View is a beautiful two story home, with breathtaking views of Gig Harbor's marina and Mt. Rainer.

The main floor has an open concept, well equipped chef's kitchen. The kitchen currently has a double oven, where the bottom oven is inoperable. For the top oven, temps between 275º-375º are accurate. Temps outside of that range are inaccurate. Enjoy meals at the breakfast bar or at the bright kitchen dining area. Outside of the kitchen, sit and relax on the spectacular outdoor dining/living deck, great for alfresco entertaining and planning the next day's events.

The main floor has a comfortable living room with soaring 20' ceilings, cozy fire place and those dramatic harbor views. The formal dining room seats eight, perfect for that special dinner or setting up Sunday brunch.

The cozy junior master suite, with full bathroom and queen bed is also located on the main floor.

A handy washer/dryer mud room and half bath are off of the kitchen. Enjoy a game of ping-pong in the home's garage.

Walk up the stair case from the entry hall, to the second floor landing. Off of the landing is the sleeping loft with two full beds and direct access to an outside deck.

The master suite is next, with a king bed and private deck, over looking the harbors's shopping village and Mt. Rainer. The large master bathroom has a soaking tub, shower, see-through fireplace and double sink vanity.

The second floor also has two additional bedrooms that share the hall bathroom. Each of these bedrooms has a queen bed, window seats and walk in closets.

The Garden:

The garden is spacious, level and lovely. A charming white picket fence surrounds the landscape, making Del Mar Harbor View your own private oasis. Stroll through the garden or sit on the deck overlooking the Harbor's yachts and fishing boats.

The Neighborhood:

Del Mar Harbor View is located in an established neighborhood, one block up the hill from downtown Gig Harbor. A five minute walk from the house brings you to at least eight appetizing restaurants, wine bars and gourmet sandwich eateries. You'll want to explore the historic Gig Harbor Maritime museum, only two blocks away.

Kayak and boat rentals are two blocks from the house, ready for your water front exploration or morning work out.

Make time to explore the Beach Basket and other quaint shops, all close by and walkable.

great house for a girl's weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Easy walk into town if the weather permits. Views from house are amazing! We had some electrical issues while there, that the managers Warren and Erik had resolved immediately with an Electrician. They also provided more cooking implements at our request! The oven needs repairs, and they ordered parts while we were there. The house has a number of paintings done by the manager that are beautiful, and We Will be back next girls weekend! Thank you again, Warren!!

Loved the House and the Location!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Gig Harbor and wanted to spend my 60th with my close group of 9 Girl Friends in my home town. The house was just the right size with wonderful Linens for each Bedroom. The location was perfect for walking to all the shops and wonderful resturants. The exterior needs a bit of clean up but is still very charming. Definitely would stay here again!! Thanks for the wonderful weekend Memories!!

Beautiful views from the home; great location; easy access & parking

  • 4 of 5

This house is nice, with very beautiful views. The high ceilings accent that. There was ample space for our family to spread out, and a separate dining room where we did a puzzle. Otherwise we ate in the kitchen dining area, which was large enough for 8 of us with the high chair. There is plenty of prep space in the kitchen, but there were some shortcomings: Only 1 oven works. I had seen two in the pictures but one was DOA. That would have been good to know, especially for a holiday meal for 8; Not enough pots/pans/baking sheets. The sauce pans are small and pretty worn out/no larger cookie sheets-just one tiny one; luckily we brought 2 large pots (boiling potatoes for mashed for 8 is alot of potatoes), a large cookie sheet, and 2 - 9x13 pans for baking things in (casserole and veggies)...we would have been out of luck if we hadnt brought them-so definitely bring your own.; no bottle opener and sub standard wine corkscrew/small details but important; and the coffee pot takes 22 minutes to make a pot of coffee. We timed it twice. With all coffee drinkers, that was a bummer.

There are a couple large stains on some carpet areas which detract from the home's charm. Oh, and it says in the book they have there, that the BBQ is only to be used in the summer. We did not use it, but if you were planning to grill your food, that won't happen in the winter. Lastly, the ping pong table is in the garage, and there was no heat out there; too cold to play. A patio heater would have made the space usable and there is ample ventilation for one.

We wished it had been nice enough to sit on the porch and take in that view. It is stunning.

Warren was a pleasure to deal with and answered questions promptly. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

lovely, spacious home with beautiful view of marina

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved staying at this awesome home in Gig Harbor. The house is large with a beautiful view of the marina from the front. There are six beds and four bathrooms! The kitchen is perfect and includes everything one might need. The living room has vaulted ceilings and a fireplace. Mr. Knapp's grand paintings adorn the walls. There is plenty of room to park cars, and it's only a short walk to restaurants and sights. The home is very clean and stocked with everything you need. There's even a hammock on the porch. I highly recommend this home.
