For BETTER RATES/ SHORTER STAYS/ less notice, please contact me thru my listing on Vacation Rentals By Owner - (usa>washington state> puget sound > gig harbor > the gig harbor guest house- best downtown on the water) We are able to accept Visa, Mastercard & Discovery Card. Thanks- Marlene

Please note: Gig Harbor is across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge from Tacoma. Lots of great things to see and do in both Gig Harbor & Tacoma (I've got a long list of recommendations). It takes about 45 minutes to drive from Tacoma to Seattle, you can also take the ferry from the peninsula to Seattle. If the main focus of your trip is taking in the sights in Seattle, unless you LOVE driving, the Guest House is probably not ideal. The listing, for some unknown reason, lists the neighborhood as "Ruston" - Ruston is actually across the bridge from Gig Harbor. Neighborhood should read "Gig Harbor".
