Property description

Experience everything Gig Harbor has to offer from our 1,400 square foot guest house, centrally located on the Harbor in The Maritime City. While the house is far enough removed from the street for privacy, scenic Harborview Drive is steps from the front door. The Gig Harbor Guest House is a great place to stay while exploring Puget Sound. All Gig Harbor attractions (shopping, restaurants, golf, parks, theater, movies...) and special events (parades, art fairs, farmer's markets, outdoor movies and concerts...) are either within walking distance or a short drive away. House is minutes from Highway 16, connecting guests to Tacoma and Seattle.

The Guest House is open and bright with large windows onto the harbor. House is outfitted to be a home away from home. Spacious kitchen has all appliances including new Keurig coffee/tea/hot chocolate maker, toaster oven and microwave oven. Laundry room has full size washer and dryer. Upstairs loft has a queen size bed, television, a day bed that pulls out to sleep two and ample storage space. Downstairs living room sofa opens to sleep two. Living room also has a television and a workspace. Newly renovated bathroom has a tub/shower and all linens are included. House has satellite television and wi-fi.

Owner info

About the owner: We have so many great memories from when we lived on Harborview - We hope our guests will also have many happy times in this wonderful house! (The photo is Marlene and Rhubarb, mascot of the Tacoma Rainers, not her spouse....!)

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor, WA, USA:
Gig Harbor is a terrific place to live or visit!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house was built in 1993 and recently updated, but the location is full of family history and remains a vibrant part of the community. It is great to be in such a peaceful location that is oriented to enjoy the harbor and also be able to walk out the front door and be near all the shops and restaurants and activities going on in our town's main street.
