About this listing
Hi , It is an older house, but cozy! It is on Puget Sound on Colvos Passage in Gig Harbor. Water front hot tub, about 250 ft of waterfront, but there is about 3 miles of beach to walk on without seeing any houses.
There are two bathrooms, one upstairs without a shower , and a full bathroom w/ tub/shower downstairs. Full kitchen that you are welcome to use. The house has one main "master" bedroom facing the sound with King size bed, and another bedroom with a Queen size bed. The house has two loft spaces that are accessed via ladders, one loft has a single futon and the other a queen size futon. There is also a large couch and two smaller ones. This house is a bit dated as it is a fixer upper that we purchased and are in the process of a DIY remodel, a slow go and this airbnb thing helps out! Do not expect a four star hotel here, or a high end "vacation rental", this is a house that is lived in, with pictures of us on the wall, and a few stains on the older carpet... but regardless of that pretty sweet place in a great location. We own three lots here so about 250 feel of waterfront. Beyond that to the North, there is about 2-3 miles of beach without homes, so great area to hang out. There is one neighbor, a quiet lady who keeps to herself. We have a nice hot tub, and laundry, dishwasher, that you are also free to use. Property has a very Steep drive so it is not very good for rear wheel drive or motorcycle access, however there is a large landing that those sorts of vehicles can park. It's about 5 min outside of downtown (old town) Gig Harbor WA. KIDS LOVE THIS HOUSE, and we have fishing rods for you and them to use! ** If you plan to stay with small children please consider the potential of them getting hurt , as the bulkhead is a potential fall hazard as is the ladders going to the lofts, not to mention the wood stoves or hot tub. We do require a signed liability release if you plan on having children under the age of 18 years old. Good luck in your search and we are hear to answer any questions you might have. Larry & Camilla
PS: There are 4 kayaks and life-jackets here for your use. Kayaking can be dangerous, so we do require a release of liability to use them.
You can use entire house, aside from two storage rooms and the office in the house that have the doors shut. Key will be provide as well as a detailed document explaining how to get to property.
Interaction with Guests
We are not home during stays, however we are within an hour if need be. We have a house in Seattle that we stay at when this house is rented out.
It is very quiet, about a half mile drive from the road to get to property.
Easy access to old town Gig Harbor. The house is about 45 min to Seattle in good traffic, and about 25 min to downtown Tacoma in good traffic. There is a bridge that is a toll bridge that costs $5 to cross.
