About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). Close to U.S. Open
Originally built in 1924 at the water's edge the home was recently updated. It boasts a beautiful kitchen with large great room all with 180+ degree views of the Puget Sound. The home has slate floors, granite counters and stainless appliances. The master and second bedrooms have a queen size beds. We list the beach house as sleeps 4 but the large comfy couch can sleep one if needed. The detached garage has futons but not for sleeping. Large bathroom with two sinks, slate double headed shower and washer and dryer. Detached large two car garage with tv/bonus area. Great getaway for the kids. The detached garage has no bathroom facilities but has futon couches, an LCD TV and XBox. The home's large wrap around deck is right on the water! A separate pier extends over the water. Two outdoor covered seating areas. One covered outdoor wraparound couch right on the waters edge to enjoy the 180 degree view. The other covered outdoor couch is tucked alongside the house next to the hot tub with a view of the water and mountain. There are heated throw blankets to let you enjoy the beautiful views longer into the evenings.
At low tide there are miles of walking beaches each direction - North and South - to collect shells and other treasures. At high tide the water splashes against the bulkhead - no beach at high tide. There is an up to 15 foot tidal exchange in the Puget Sound - much more than the 6 foot tidal exchange of San Francisco Bay for example. The Puget Sound is the Salish Sea with clear 57 degree salt water teaming with wildlife. Sunrise Beach county park is a short walk (.15 Miles) where you can take your dog off leash. The best scuba diving spot in the South Salish Sea with a 30-60 foot deep reef running 200 feet along the shore (Google search Sunrise Beach Park WA Diving). Dive boats drop divers most weekends at the reef 7 houses down - fun to watch or join.
Sunrise Beach seems like it is part of the San Juan Islands (80 miles north by boat) without being locked on a small island with no amenities (like a coffee shop and wine bar). Tacoma waterfront restaurants are 10 minutes away by boat and 25 minutes by car. There are many great restaurants in Gig Harbor just 5-15 minutes away. Eagles, seagulls, seals, sea lions, harbor porpoise, sea otter, and the occasional orca, humpback and grey whale and white sided dolphin travel Colvos passage between the beach home and Vashon Island. Kayaks and boats travel by constantly. 180+ degree view of it all inside or outside of this beautiful home.
Large hot tub next to the water to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the beautiful sunset reflecting off of Mt. Rainier and the full moon rising shortly after. Wake up to the increadible sunrise on Sunrise Beach! Email us for more incredible photos. Your stay will be unforgettable.

About the owner: John and Shelley - we enjoy our beach house as much as our guests! We chose Sunrise Beach because it has it all - Great views, on the water, sandy beach, miles of walking beaches, history, close to everything.
Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor, WA, USA:
The view was first documented by Captain Vancouver's 1792 expedition. There is a large historical marker from 1930 on the spot where the expedition made their sketch of Mt. Rainier in the ship's journal. The Tacoma Historical Society in 1930 matched the spot to the sketch. The marker says 'May 26, 1782; John Sykes Vancouver expedition sketched the bay and the mountain from this site. Aug 22, 1853; Theodore Winthrop crossed from the west passage to the Narrows. He saw the reflection of the mountain on the water and wrote: 'The Siwash call it Tacoma''
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach house is very relaxing. It is at the end of Sunrise Beach Drive so there is never any road noise. You are at the waters edge to just sit back and enjoy. The amenities of Costco, Albertson's, and Starbucks are just 5 miles away.
