Harborview Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with a beautiful yard and views of the harbor.

Kitchen and living areas were spacious and comfortable. Bedrooms are upstairs and were perfect for the four of us with comfy beds, nice linens and closet space. Bathroom was huge and the shower my son called a car wash it had so many jets! We enjoyed our stay very much in this comfortable, clean and well equipped little house.

I would not recommend to anyone who has difficulty with stairs. They are steep and the bedrooms and bathroom are not on the same floor.

Convenient Cottage in Gig Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is super-convenient to the harbor area and easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and views. The kitchen is well equipped and the whole place is very comfortable. The back garden is beautifully landscaped and very inviting. One tip - the stairs to the bedrooms are steep, so this wouldn't be the best choice for people with movement limitations.

Magical weekend

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful place. From the clean smell when you arrive, to the very comfy bed and the amazing shower! Perfect getaway! Too cold to use the hot tub, but it gives us something to look forward to when we return!
