Love the location of this house
This is the second time we have stayed at this house. We love being able to walk to nearby restaurants and the hot tub!
Wow, what a wonderful stay!
This property is just beautiful. We found it prettier in person than depicted in the pictures! The house is immaculate inside and out, and we found tons of towels, kitchen utensils, wine openers, toilet paper... all of things that many owners don’t often consider for vacationers. The landscaping is gorgeous without a weed in sight (we were jealous!). The shower is awesome with a dozen shower heads you can adjust to your liking. The location is perfect - right across the street from Susanne’s bakery with their fresh pastries and killer breakfast and lunch sandwiches, and a short walk to the all of the shops, kayak rentals, and other restaurants. We’d recommend a stay here to anyone. Hot Tip: check out Tides Tavern and the Sockeye salmon fish and chips with a mojito with a bunch of fresh mint eaten outside on the deck on a beautiful sunny day... perfect!
Wonderful place, charming, comfortable, great location. Highest review possible!
Beautiful, charming home, in a lovely location. Beautifuly appointed with old charm and modern comforts. Great location with a fantastic back garden oasis & view of Harbor. I only wish we had found Harborview Cottage earlier in our years with a college student nearby - we would have stayed here every visit!! Highly recommend staying here.
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
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.
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!
Enjoy all that Gig Harbor has to offer. Summer festivals, Holiday lights and endless activities on the water are all at your door stop.
