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!
We loved it !!!
Beautiful home and lovely garden ! Enjoyed every moment there . Great location. John was very helpful and available. Could not have been more comfortable or more pleased !
Outstanding ... home was beautiful and a perfect location
As former residents of the area, we knew what to expect in terms of life style and amenities... the surprise was our experience in this home. It is located right where you would want it to be for conveniences, views and relishing the “Harbor life”. The home is well maintained and the owners were proactive in reaching it to ensure we were well prepared and accommodated to enjoy our visit. Whether sitting on the front porch watching the boats or in the backyard with an amazing water feature ... relaxation was inevitable.
Excellent Property in the heart of Gig Harbor!
We stayed at this lovely home on July 3rd and 4th. John was kind enough to allow an early check in for us since the home was ready when we arrived in the area The home is beautifully taken care of and the location can’t be beat. Everything in the Gig Harbor city center is within walking distance. The backyard is so pretty and tranquil with the waterfall running through it. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. The kitchen was clean and modern. We will come back to visit again!
The time spent here in June was just perfect! With the beautiful landscaping, hot tub and waterfall, the backyard was a perfect spot for relaxing. It was hard to choose between spending time there or on the front porch watching the activity in the harbor and along the street.
Inside there is a very complete kitchen with most anything you could want or need. There are multiple ways to brew coffee. The lure of all the great places to eat along Harborview Dr kept the kitchen from getting too much of a workout. In one of the upstairs bedrooms there is a portable air conditioner that was good to have on the 3 hot days we had.
This is the best location in Gig Harbor. Across the street from Suzanne’s Bakery, on the trolley line, not far from the park with a weekly farmer’s market, excellent walks in either direction.
Hoping to stay there again!
Enjoy all that Gig Harbor has to offer. Summer festivals, Holiday lights and endless activities on the water are all at your door stop.
