Step outside your door and enjoy direct access to a pebbly beach when you retreat to this guesthouse in Gig Harbor. Beautifully positioned on the shores of the Carr Inlet (on a property that it shares with a separate main house), this 650-square-foot home features a communal yard where you can soak in the summer sunshine, access to a gas grill and a patio table, and wonderful views of the water, the Olympic Mountains, and incredible sunsets.
This property sits right alongside the beach on Carr Inlet, five miles west of downtown Gig Harbor's restaurants, shops, and charming streets. Take your kayak out on the water for a morning paddle, drive the surrounding country roads and take in the coastal scenery, and enjoy a day trip or two to Vashon Island (the Point Defiance Ferry is 14 miles east), Tacoma (16 miles southeast), Port Orchard (19 miles north), or Seattle (35 miles northeast).
