About the property

Directly across from downtown Gig Harbor, 2 BR 2 Bath waterfront home

Romantically situated on the water directly across from downtown Gig Harbor, lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath home. Covered deck off the kitchen with gas barbeque and sitting area.

Sit on the deck and enjoy the sunset and a glass of wine and watch the sail boat races on Thursdays, listen to music in the park on Tuesdays or enjoy the movies in the park on Saturdays.

Gig Harbor was listed as one of the top 20 Best Small Towns in America of 2012.

Home has a large deck with panoramic views of the harbor, a hot tub to relax in and a shared dock to kayak from. Two kayaks are available for your use. Just a 1.5 mile walk to many restaurants, Morso Wine Bar, Market Grill, Anthony's and Devoted Kiss. A 2 mile walk to the main area of down town and a 3 mile walk to The Tides Tavern.

Take the Trolley to Uptown, visit Gig Harbors new spirits distillery, Heritage Distillery. Back on the harbor enjoy a Destiny Harbor boat tour.

You can paint your own pottery at Java and Clay cafe in downtown or sit and relax as boat traffic moves in and out of the harbor at Skansie Brothers Park in downtown. The Maritime Gig Festival is the first full weekend in June beginning with a parade on Saturday morning and ending with the Blessing of the Fleet in Skansie Brothers park on Sunday.

Your stay will end with lasting memories of the many activities you enjoyed or the relaxing moments sitting over the harbor.

Walking in the door and seeing the beautiful view of the harbor was a perfect way to start the weekend! Thank you Dianne for all the extras that you provided, from the spice bread, wine and flowers. Definitely would stay here again!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay and cannot imagine anything nicer. The new decks are gorgeous and all the hanging baskets of flowers (plus little arrangements thru the house) are so pretty. Thank you Diane, for all you do to make things special

Heads up to Gig Harbor visitors. Read the Trip Advisor reviews for The Green Turtle before dining there. Lovely setting, everything else amazingly awful!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Dianne's home was lovely, and we had a fabulous weekend get-away. The property was clean, well-equipped, and with a view that was worth every penny of the rental fee. The deck was gorgeous, with comfortable furniture and a clean and modern hot-tub. Additionally, Dianne went out of her way to be helpful from first contact to our last text -- giving us privacy, but quick to respond to questions in a friendly and helpful manner.
