Waterfront Beach House (850 square feet with a full kitchen and a huge deck) with magnificent views of Mt. Rainier to the South and the Olympic Mountains to the North. Have a fire on the beach (158 feet of low bank waterfront) and play on the sandy beach. Bring your boat, the crabbing is great! Launch it from the private, concrete boat ramp and tie it up to the buoy. Bring your tennis racquets and play tennis on the all-weather court. A croquet set is available to enjoy on the lawn by the beach.
There is 1 bedroom upstairs with a King Size bed and a Queen Size sleeper sofa (very comfortable) in the Living Area downstairs.
Respectful of property and neighbors. Children on the beach at high tide must wear life jackets. All large gatherings (over 12 people) must be approved in advance.
Great! Great! Love the view! Needed a quite place to rejuvenate. Walked in the water found seashells, claybabies, agates. Place had everything you needed to cook & plenty of towels, etc....
Can't wait to go here again. Wish we could stay longer! Take eye sleep mask if you wake easily to morning sun & don't want to!
When we arrived at the Beach House, Bill was out front to greet us. He oriented us to the house, the grounds, Fox Island and Gig Harbor and made us feel welcomed.
The house itself exceeded our expectations. It is so close to the water it almost has the feel of a houseboat. There's a 180 degree view of the harbor with an eastern exposure. The sun greeted us every morning as did the harbor seals. I can whole-heartedly recommend this home and the its hosts to anyone hoping to stay on Fox Island.
About the Host, Sue And Bill
Sue and Bill love History and gardening. The Beach House is part of a 13-acre compound with over 350' of waterfront, which includes a century old home, one of the original houses on Fox Island. Stroll through the lovely cottage gardens, which were featured on both the Gig Harbor and Fox Island Garden Tours. The Beach House is 10 miles from Gig Harbor with all it has to offer ... an authentic, working fishing village with restaurants, art galleries, museums, movies, parks, shopping, etc. It is 13 miles from Tacoma, WA.
