About 1 hour up Hwy 16, you'll find Poulsbo, commonly referred to as "Little Norway on the Fjord". This authentic Norwegian community invites you to experience nature's beauty, Scandinavian hospitality and old world charm. While you in that area, be sure to visit the oldest lighthouse on Puget Sound, Point No Point Lighthouse. You'll love the history and the breathtaking views of the Seattle skyline. Continuing up the road, you'll find the city of Port Townsend, known for many Victorian buildings and it's historic charm. For an absolute perfect Northwest experience, be sure to visit Olympic National Park just 2.5 hours away. You'll be inspired by the glacier-capped peaks, valleys of forests, hot springs and rugged Pacific coastline.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Bob and Sam Guinn have lived in Gig Harbor since 2006. With their two children in college, they were encouraged by friends to turn the daylight basement of their home into a vacation rental. Knowing the possibilities of the property, they decided to make the needed renovations to make it the ultimate getaway suite. With its ideal location and Pacific Northwest setting, they knew it would be the perfect addition to someone's travel plans. After staying in several vacation rentals, some good and some not so good, they knew what it would take to make it perfect.
Why the Owner Chose Artondale, WA, USA:
Nestled in the center of Gig Harbor, Washington, it is the perfect location as a base for all of your Pacific Northwest adventures. The Getaway is on a property adorned with lovely landscape, a fish pond, a gazebo with stunning views, and welcoming and helpful hosts to greet you. You'll love seeing the heron on the water, the seagulls dropping clams on the driveway to get their next meal, the eagles perched in the trees and the critters that run wild in the area. (Yes, critters! Although they mostly only come out at night, we do remind you that you are in the PNW and there are critters!)
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Benefits unique to our property are it's beauty, personality, charm, and comfort. You'll love being part of the community as you stroll across the street to the Island View Market, opened in 1941, to meet the locals and experience a store from times long ago. Being small business owners, one thing we have taken to heart is to ‘support local’. We have been so blessed on discovering the incredible talents and successes of Washington companies, it is our pleasure to share them with you so you can enjoy them as well!
