About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom and a queen sofa bed, 1 full Bath, washer/dryer

This cozy apartment is right in the town of Gig Harbor, WA. Walk to the Harbor or just enjoy spending time inside. Landscape lighting to indoor mood lighting, it's romantic and warm. We're located in a safe neighborhood where you can walk to anything, or take the bus.

The apartment is well stocked with everything you will need to stay a day, week or month, from silverware to linens. Cook up a batch of cookies on one of our rainy days or explore our mountain ranges on a sunny day hike.

Perfect for a single or couple at rates half of the local hotels with pure comfort and privacy. A full bath and laundry room. Plenty of storage. A new DVD library and iphone speaker charging station, we've got it all. If you need the apartment for one or two nights and I have a opening between renters, give me a call or contact me, it may be available for short stays.

We are 1 mile from St. Anthony's new hospital and the YMCA. Just minutes from the freeway to Seattle, Tacoma or Olympia.

The Harbor offers a full day of antiquing, picnicking or just watch the fishing boats come in.

About Barbara Graham

Hi, I'm Barbara and a gardener at heart. I'm a graphic designer and work from home. We love the trails in the neighborhood and the summers here in Washington just can't be beat. Come visit us in Gig Harbor, you'll experience lots of green.

Barbara Graham purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Barbara Graham chose Gig Harbor

Gig Harbor is quickly growing and I saw the need for a fully furnished and completely supplied apartment for professionals moving here. A lot of visitors come for a few days or a week to see if they like the area, then come back and rent for a few months to settle in.

What makes this apartment unique

The best thing about this apartment is that it is quiet and very private. Nestled in a safe neighborhood in the trees yet minutes to everything going on in Gig Harbor. All the lighting is dimmed for a unique ambiance at night and the tile work is custom, it's just beautiful to be here. All you need is your suitcase, everything else is supplied from sheets to silverware. If you are looking for a long term (3 months or more) all utilities are paid.

Clean, quiet neighborhood and close to all activities and shopping.

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Home was beautiful. The furniture was fit the home for comfort and sufficient to accommodate the entire family and guests. The location was perfect for our purposes. Easy access to the shopping center that has many stores for food and items you may have forgotten. The owner has taken the time to provide items that guests may need from spices and other dry goods to laundry items.

Quiet centrally located and in a nice setting

  • 5 of 5

The place was very comfortable and private. It is a great place for a couple. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and the private patio with a BBQ was a real plus. Barbara was a gracious host and very flexible as we awaited the birth of our granddaughter.

We stayed for eight nights in this charming, tucked away apartment and were very pleased. It was a quiet getaway and the bedroom, kitchen, and bath amenities were thoughtful and comfortable. Barbara was pleasant and available for a couple of questions but otherwise, we had a private spot for our short vacation. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We had a lovely stay in the garden home apartment. It was the perfect getaway and base camp to explore the area. The home was quiet, secluded, and very comfortable. Thanks Barb!

Cozy Cottage Garden Charmer

  • 5 of 5

Lush landscaping lead the way to our cozy cottage. The unit had everything we fix our own meals, to be entertained, to relax, or to put a puzzle together. Cozy and charmingly decorated, we felt quite comfortable. We also enjoyed walking through the lovely, quiet neighborhood. We were well situated to take bus # 100 to downtown Gig Harbor , Purdy park-and-ride ( from which we took the Kit-sap airport shuttle; also to TCC where we caught a bus to Tacoma to see the Chihuly Glass Museum, & other museums ((closed Mondays)). We had a GREAT time. The owner supplies renters with explicit directions on line of how to get there, use of washer & dryer, lists of what is supplied and available. We will be back. Enjoy!
