The yard, the deck, the access to the water…

I booked this stay in December 2021 for our April 2022 trip, only to be concerned about a negative review that came in after I booked it. When we arrived, though, all was well and we were thrilled with our accommodations. The windows at the back of the house gave a relaxing view that I enjoyed every morning as I sipped my coffee. It looks out on the water and, beyond that, the houses on Raft Island. If you step out on the spacious deck, you can see the waters off the state park. The house was tastefully furnished. Binoculars were supplied--and we used them--to view wildlife in Carr Inlet. One thing to keep in mind about the lovely windows at the back of the house is that there were no window coverings (except in the bedroom), so if privacy is important to you, that might be a problem. I had no idea how much I would love the Jukebox--both the look and the sound--and the CD selection also matched our musical tastes. The landscaping at the house was well-maintained and beautiful. The house was clean when we arrived. I was surprised that cleaning supplies were not available to use, as I would think that they would WANT us to clean as we go along. We purchased some supplies to use, as well as paper towels, finding one roll of cheap paper towels to be inadequate. For our 6-night stay, there were just a few dishwasher pods supplied, so we bought more of those, too. I found using the kitchen a bit frustrating. While it was large, it was not well organized, so finding things was a challenge, with stuff strewn about randomly in the many cabinets. We never found a coffee grinder. I found measuring cups and spoons only after I had already bought some to use. Significant road construction and numerous traffic circles in Gig Harbor made accessing a regular grocery store challenging, but doable. Downtown Gig Harbor, on the other hand, was easy to get to. Be aware that if you have children, family-friendly restaurants are harder to come by downtown. If you enjoy long beach walks, as we do, I did not find a good location for that near Gig Harbor due to the number of private beaches that you are not supposed to traverse. While the private beach at the Tides was nice to explore, it was small. There is a state park nearby (Kopachuck). Overall, we had a lovely stay at the Tides and I hope to return again.

Beautiful house and landscaping but could use some upkeep, maintenance, and attention to detail. Working with Vacasa was easy and communication is good, so it was a pleasant experience relaying direct feedback on cleanliness and maintenance issues. Disappointed to see the place falling short of expectations and some things in disrepair.

We were a family with 3 adult children staying while we had some work done to our house. What a joy it is to wake up each morning and see the beautiful view. The house was plenty big for all 5 of us. We took walks over to Raft Island and our son took out our kayaks as well. We would definitely stay again!

Perfect home for our family getaway. Big, spacious rooms for our young kids to spread out. Very clean and inviting. Safe, quiet, isolated area. Our kids loved the yard and low tide beach area. Would definitely recommend!

Lovely home with spectacular view. Even though it was cold and a bit rainy, it was so nice to be able to enjoy the Sound, the autumn leaves, and when it cleared up, the mountains.

We had a great time at this lovely vacation home. Felt like we had an acre of land to ourselves.

The home is beautiful. The view is amazing. We stayed here because our home was being remodeled. Our house is just about 2 miles from this home but felt like a vacation. We didn't want to leave but the home was rented out to someone else. I have my fishing license so we picked oysters out on the beach and bbq them and made some lovely pasta to go with it but really the best oysters I have ever had. If you were to get them in a restaurant you would pay $40 for the dinner. But we also eat them with butter and garlic. We will be back even though we live down the way.
