This was a great spot, very comfortable accommodations with beautiful view of the water. Carport very very tight even for our small VW and there is zero lighting down steep driveway to house. Otherwise great stay.

How lucky were we to spot three open nights at Little Tides in Gig Harbor just as we needed a getaway? This little house was perfect: comfy bed, cozy linens, kitchenette for coffee and small bites. We soaked in the views, combed the pebbly beach both high tide and low, and did some low-key exploration and recreation nearby by bike, car, and kayak. We're almost always looking for a new spot to explore, but Little Tides will definitely be on our list for a second visit. (Special hooray to the management who quickly responded and saved us from certain death by delivering the coffee that must have walked away to enjoy the gorgeous views itself.)

A very quiet and cozy little place. The bed, bedding and towels were luxurious and very comfortable; They looked brand new. Place was immaculate and charming with its retro appliances. If sensitive to smells, it has an old house smell and bathroom has a sewer gas smell. Nothing we couldn’t live with though for the short amount of time we were there. Shower is tiny so if your a bigger size keep that in mind. My husband is a slim 6’ and kept hitting his elbows on the shower door trying to wash up. The house was freezing cold upon arrival but that would be an easy remedy to have house cleaner turn heat on. Appreciate there was a fan in the bedroom as I am used to having one going when I sleep! We were disappointed there was no beach to speak of, water was high. Had looked forward to strolling on it. So keep that in mind if it’s a big reason your looking for something along the water. I wouldn’t especially stay there unless the beach was guaranteed to be available. Otherwise it’s just staying in a glamified garage a long drive from Seattle.

I enjoyed my stay at Little Tides this summer. The location is beautiful. You have waterfront and country side. The place was nicely done, funky and quaint. Perfect idea of a beach house. I enjoyed the private backyard patio area with grill, walks and shell collecting on the beach and wildlife around the property. It’s easy to pop in a kayak. Waking up to water views and going to sleep with water sounds was lovely. It’s a truly peaceful and beautiful get away. I’m planning on returning next summer.
