This cozy a-frame getaway is perfect for a couple's getaway or especially for an extended stay in the area. It is 2000 square feet 2 bedroom +, 2 bathroom home, with a full washer and dryer. It is near historic downtown Gig Harbor, within walking distance (if you like hills) to great restaurants, marinas, wine bars, yoga studios, shopping, coffee shops, and parks. Our Gig Harbor home comes with everything you need for a great getaway; wireless internet, flat screen TV with cable, dvds, and so much more. Nice parking on the quiet street in front of our home and a short walk up the scenic driveway and you can feel right at home. The home has an awesome deck to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We fell in love with Gig Harbor, and our home will be the perfect place for others who wish to explore the community.
It is located 0.7 miles from the harbor and Anthony's restaurant, Devoted Kiss breakfast and lunch, Marketplace grille, and Finholms deli. Within a mile are kayak rentals, paddle board and boat rentals, Donkey Creek Park and the Gig Harbor history museum. You will want to walk to everything, especially if you like hills. The Gig Harbor summer concerts and events and the world famous Tides Tavern and Green Turtle waterfront fine dining are less than two miles away. Several great golf courses nearby including Chambers Bay, which was the site for the 2015 U.S. Open.
The unique benefits at this house: Close to everything, large space, amazing deck, near parks, walking paths, shopping and restaurants, history museum. This home gives you the real feel of the pacific northwest along with all the amenities of Gig Harbor. Free high speed wifi, cable TV, washer/dryer, air conditioning, and everything else you need for a week or a month of enjoyment.
There is plenty of fun to be had nearby, should you wish to go exploring. Tacoma is a 20 minute drive away. The Tacoma Art Museum and Chihuly's Glass Museum are nearby. Explore the quaint towns of Poulsbo and Port Orchard or take the ferry from Bremerton to Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. Gig Harbor is an excellent location for exploring the Olympic Peninsula and the many islands of the area.
'We enjoyed so much staying in your cabin. The location here in Gig Harbor is ideal and the setting amongst the trees feels like we are in a tree house! Thank you for helping us have a beautiful vacation, and spend time with our family here in Washington!'
-Guest quote (May 2013)
'Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Gig Harbor is the perfect location for a family vacation. We easily visited remote locations on the Olympic Peninsula as well as the mountains, shops, and restaurants in Seattle and Tacoma. The Gig Harbor community itself is welcoming and friendly.
We loved our time in the Pacific Northwest and are grateful for the opportunity to experience your beautiful home. Hope to return next year!'

About Tammy & Mike Zeller
We purchased this property as a get-away when we found out our oldest son and his wife were having a baby (they live in Seattle). We are active and love to hike, walk, and golf. Find this to be a truly relaxing getaway.
Tammy & Mike Zeller purchased this House in 2012
Why Tammy & Mike Zeller chose Gig Harbor
We saw this house and instantly fell in love with the cozy feel of the space, as well as the entire village of Gig Harbor.
What makes this House unique
This house is truly unique due to the proximity of the heart of Gig Harbor, as well as the true Pacific Northwest feel of the view of the fir trees from the A-Frame Home. We'd be happy to have you enjoy this home as your own for a week or a month or a season.

Best place we’ve stayed anywhere!
Third time and still perfect in every way.
Great Place to stay
This was a gem. We felt that we were in the middle of the woods but just down the hill was Gig Harbor. I would recommend this place to anyone - well maintained and a wonderful place to stay!
Everything you need
Great location, close to everything, but still feels like you are in the country. Peaceful and well equipped property with everything you need. Large home with lots of beds for a family to stay and the loft would be a nice place for the kids to hang out. Owners are very responsive and helpful.
Cozy, comfortable, beautifully decorated house in very quiet neighborhood.
This is our second stay in what we now call our "home" in Gig Harbor when visiting our son and his family. We all love this beautiful secluded property close to "everything Gig Harbor"! We will be back.
Wonderful hub for seeing family in the area
Both my parents and extended family members are spread out over the state of Washington. Most vacations I divide my time between my mom's house and my dad's house and never really have time to see other family members. Gig Harbor was the perfect central location to spend a little time with everyone. Close enough to Tacoma for a day trip in to see my Aunt and a fun location for other family members to come and visit me for a change ;)
The house is extremely well kept and on a quiet wooded street. The master bedroom has a wall of windows and it's just wonderful to wake up to that view everyday. It's a little far to walk into town, primarily because it's all uphill on the way back. We had really great meals at The Tides, Susanne's (for baked goods and coffee), and the Devoted Kiss has fantastic breakfasts and lunch. I would definitely stay here again. Maybe next time in the summer so I could spend a bit more time enjoying the waterfront and walking trails.
great property reasonable price
Roomy, good location, pretty natural surroundings, well stocked with everything you could want.
Info on how to control heat, checkout procedures, dos and don'ts clear.
One of their rules that you can't drive your car on the driveway was annoying. But I can see the landlords point of view: deep ditches on each side without any railing--if they didn't have that rule there would clearly be liability issues for them. Just be aware that you carry everything from the car to the house a fair distance. At night you need a flash night. Some of path lights weren't functioning. To be fair not every visitor has 20 boxes to carry in as we did.
All in all a wonderful property and the most affordable property with a lot of space available.
This is a perfect location for someone who wants to sample the many things offered in the Gig Harbor area, and maybe even considering having their own home in Gig Harbor.
