John and Gail were absolutely wonderful! They were so helpful and their home was so cozy and the views were amazing!! Wonderful people!!! Highly recommend, we will be back!
Great location. Cozy in the rain with the fireplace.
A lovely and well appointed cottage, with a fabulous garden and in a great location.
Arranging this cottage from Australia was easy. Communicating with the owner was easy. Perfect location in a great place that is Gig Harbor. Highly recommended.
Beautifully restored/updated 1900 home.
We loved the front porch for morning coffee & a glass of wine in the evening. Walk to everything in the historic downtown.
The place was amazing and was exactly what we were looking for. We'll definitely stay here again!
A lovely home
A nice home in a great location close to everything in downtown Gig Harbor. Refurbished and appointed well. Our only challenge with the property - BR's are upstairs and all running water is downstairs. I recently had knee surgery which made navigating the steep stairwell to use the restroom a challenge. Probably uneconomical to do, but a half bath upstairs would have made this property perfect for us. The owners are awesome!
Enjoy all that Gig Harbor has to offer. Summer festivals, Holiday lights and endless activities on the water are all at your door stop.
