About Barbara Graham

I love my home and would like to share it with others new to this area. Everything grows here in the rain and so I learned to garden. Then the garden grew to a masterpiece supported by hard work and wine. I've had a few weddings in the backyard, good memories. Right now, I'm renting out my home so I can travel.

Barbara Graham purchased this House in 2003

Why Barbara Graham chose Gig Harbor

The property is in a safe neighborhood close to all activities of a small town. I have another separate apartment connected to the house with private parking and access. Rarely do I every see the apartment renters. http://www.vrbo.com/233504

                                                                  The back yard was a dream come true with big trees and a beautiful fountain with lights at night. The house was just the right size for Christmas with family from the area. The master bedroom was cozy and the electric fireplace just right on a cold, winter night. There was lots of seating for everyone even at the dining table. The kitchen/family room was perfect for visiting while preparing a meal. The furnishings and decor were fun and the tile work amazing. The only suggestion would be to purchase new pots and pans and dishes. My son had to fix the frying pan when the handle fell off! Thank you for providing such a lovely place that our little dog could enjoy, too.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I'm so glad you enjoyed the home, it really is a comfortable place for a family especially around Christmas. I also appreciate the information about the pots and pans, I had no idea that they were getting old, so good... a little shopping trip. Please come back when you're in town.

                                                                  Wonderful !!!

                                                                  This property was perfect for my needs and the owner couldn't have been more accommodating. The house is well cared for and well stocked with supplies. A small refrigerator leak was taken care of with my schedule and time preference in mind. I would certainly stay here again and have already recommended it to friends. Completely positive experience. Kudos and many, many thanks to Barbara for all her kind help during my stay.

                                                                  Cozy getaway!

                                                                  Gig Harbor is known for it's Scandinavian fishing history, the fleet is still blessed every year. A beautiful downtown with lots of places to view the islands and ocean. The house is a straight one mile walk to the Harbor and located within minutes to shops and freeway access. It's a quick walk to the Cushman trail that leads 8 miles to the Narrows Bridge. The Tides Tavern and Anthonys Restaurant are a few places for a great happy hour, fresh seafood, and Harbor viewing. We have a new brewery, Seven Seas and dining from quick to full course finest. Any sport you enjoy is within an hour drive, from skiing to clam digging. We have year round glaciers on Mt. Rainier and they still toss Salmon at the Pikes Place market in Seattle. If your sport is shopping, Uptown has great style and people watching... then there is Costco and Grocery shopping just minutes away. Take a ferry to Vashon Island to experience a very slow and relaxed way of life. So close you can watch the ferry from Gig Harbor or keep driving North to Seattle. The airport (SEATAC) is 45 minutes north or a private air field is here in Gig Harbor by the Narrows Bridge.
