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. 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.

Light, bright comfortable location for larger group

  • 5 of 5

Wish we could have stayed longer! Delightful location and unbeatable view, particularly on a clear day where the large windows of the home bring Rainier practically into the living room! The interior is light and cheerful, with original artwork by a local artist gracing the walls. The yard and gardens are lovely!

The home's layout makes it an exceptionally comfortable gathering place for a larger group, with places suitable for enjoying time together, but also opportunity to spread out and have some quiet individual time, if desired. There is a ping pong table in the garage for a little fun competition, and a hammock on the porch for lounging. It's an easy walk to the harbor/tourist area, where my husband and the teens enjoyed some paddleboarding (kayaks were also available for rent.)

The beds were comfortable. I was concerned about the absence of air conditioning in the home with 80+ degree temps the weekend of our visit (and we are from a cool climate state), but we found that the breezes off the water kept the place quite comfortable with open windows for circulation.

We had a couple of special needs/requests, and Mr. Knapp was both prompt in his response to questions and concerns and accommodating.

A potential renter should know that the house is a little dated as far as appliances and decor, and could use a bit of TLC. There were a few minor maintenance and housekeeping issues, though nothing that impacted our enjoyment or comfort significantly. I will not take off a star for that because it really is a great place, and priced right, even taking into consideration the small imperfections.

We would come back! Thanks for having us.

We would definitely stay here again!

Went for a wedding and stayed longer for a mini-vacation. The location was great, scenery beautiful. Walked to the harbor and shops. The house itself was beautiful. Every morning sitting on the balcony watching the fog roll out and sipping my coffee was really nice. Love the fenced yard for the kids and the dog to play without worrying about traffic!

Forget renting it. If I lived in Gig Harbor, I'd buy this place!

Amazing House, Incredible View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harbor View in Gig Harbor! The house was immaculate, well appointed, and quiet even though it was close to the harbor. It was such a treat to watch the boats in the harbor and see magnificent Mount Rainier in the distance. Warren was a wonderful host, always available to answer questions and providing great service. Gig Harbor is a fun little town and we enjoyed exploring the many restaurants, shops, and walking along the harbor. We would definitely stay there again!

We recently stayed in the Quintessential Harbor View home for a week.

We traveled to the area to celebrate our daughters wedding. The house is beautiful, clean, and well stocked. Warren was great he was available to answer any questions we had. The house provided us with a great location to visit and enjoy family before the big day. We had an amazing time and hope to go back someday. Awesome location!!

Thank you,

Keri Weiss and Family
