About the property

Only want to rent one room with bath at a time - no children.

Large home on 5 acres, two miles from Narrows Bridge. Easy to access Narrows Bridge The bridge is a toll bridge so if you do not have a Good to Go Pass, it costs $6.50 or you can go back through the toll booth and it costs around $5. Bridge goes to Tacoma, Seattle, etc. Large deck, patios, open floor plan. Share kitchen, laundry. Just want to rent one room at a time for one person or a couple. No animals please. Bedrooms have queen beds and large closet space. Have your own bathroom, bedrooms have small TV but you are welcome to share large one in LR. I have two refrigerators; guests can have most of one.

Staying with Nancy and her little dog Tico was an experience we will cherish forever. And we will hope there will be room for us every time we return to Gig Harbor.

Good Value for a month stay for a job and needing a bed to crash at night and a shower to wash up!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed one month for a relocation job. Would stay again.

Pretty location and property and convenient to freeway and shopping. Very clean older home, 50 years old. The host told me that her Dad built it for her! The host was there the whole time hanging out In her living room watching TV for almost whole time I was there, except for one day and night. She was gone for one day. So for one day and actually it was my funnest day there. I was off work, and I got to hang out the whole day by myself in the house and watch TV in the living room and eat in the kitchen. I am sure you can do that on the other days but it feels like you're in somebody else's home and invading someone's space but that might just be a part of the deal of renting a room in someone else's house. This was my first time ever doing it. Cute small guard dog that lets you know when someone drives up or when he hears sounds. Which was helpful as I was alone once in the house overnight and that dog really made me feel safe because he barked at any sound. It woke me up at 3 am and I was able to see it was probably an raccoon or other animal outside. Host has cute chickens cock-a-doodle-doo every morning around 4am to 6am. I was always worried I would not wake up in time for work off my cell phone alarm but the chickens made sure I woke up! Good size bedroom with a comfortable bed, and cable TV in the room. Able to use Washer and dryer and detergent was provided! Has wifi. Trustworthy Host. No privacy lock on bedroom or bathroom door, but could easily put a door rubber stop. Host likes to watch TV late and early, so we got along. I was able to keep my TV on in my room late and early as well!Good value for the money for a month stay!

Owner's Response: Told the renter that whole house was available to her at any time. I don't have a TV in my bedroom but all the other bedrooms have one, so I have to watch TV in the living room. Anyone is welcome to share the LR with me, but have to watch what i am watching. She chose to hibernate in her room every second she was here if I was home. I am almost always home except in the winter when I travel.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $300

Rates are for one guest or one bedroom. While I have lots of space and bedrooms, I prefer to only have one or two people here at a time. could lower monthly rate for long term rental. Extra guest is $25 per night.

I rent the property for wedding venues or special parties but limit it to the grounds. Rates vary from $1,000-$2500 depending on how many people. It is a 3 day rental for preparation, party and clean up. Also porta potties are needed.
