Waterfront Home on Puget Sound w/ Stunning Mount Rainier View, Deck, & Bunkhouse

This waterfront beach house is a great escape. Breathe in the fresh air of the forest to the back of the house and the Puget Sound to the front. Listen to the waves splash onto the shore or the water trickle down the forested hillside. You are sure to love this beach house!

The views are absolutely amazing. You see views from every room: Mt. Rainier, Point Defiance, the south end of Vashon Island, the Vashon-Tacoma ferry route, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, and Commencement Bay. The home is located on the south end of Colvos Passage, just an easy five-minute drive from Gig Harbor’s downtown and marina. Gig Harbor is a perfectly charming town with several parks and a historic waterfront that includes boutiques, coffee shops, dining, and a marina.

This 1925 beach house has all the charm of a cabin with the comforts of home. Step right out the front door onto the huge deck equipped with chairs, benches, and a barbecue. Relax with a cocktail or book, watch maritime traffic, or keep a lookout for seals, birds, otters, sea lions, and even whales. The stairs from the deck lead directly to the sand and the small rock beach below. At high tide, the water meets the bulkhead below the deck and you feel like you are on a houseboat. At low tide, you are able to walk the beach to collect shells and rocks.

The house is within walking distance from Sunrise Beach Park, which is said to be one of the best shore dives in Puget Sound. The main feature of this site is a 25-foot high rock wall that runs parallel to the shoreline. The top of the wall starts at about 35 fsw with the base at about 60 fsw. The wall is full of cracks, crevices, fissures, and holes which are hiding places for a plethora of curious critters.

There is an open living room, dining area, and kitchen which makes it feel spacious and comfortable. One bedroom with a queen bed is in the main house. There is also a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room that is easy to assemble. The second bedroom, which holds a full-size bed and twin trundle bed, is across the path from the house in the “bunkhouse”. The bunkhouse is tucked directly behind the main house, and too has a water view, however, does not have a bathroom. The bunkhouse is probably not the right place for younger children to sleep without an adult, however, would be comfortable and safe for adults and older children.

Please note that this home requires a short walk from the parking area. The secluded Sunrise Beach neighborhood, which consists of about 20 waterfront homes, was originally only reached by boat/ferry. Today there is a road and path that brings you to the homes. To reach our house you park on the road above and walk on a waterfront pathway about the length of one city block. It is worth the walk!
The bunkhouse does not have a bathroom and is not suitable for younger children to sleep without an adult. However, it is comfortable and safe for adults and older children.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

We had a wonderful time staying here! It was exactly as advertised, and the little community is just adorable.

We really enjoyed our week long stay in this beautiful house. You can't beat the view, with a wrap around deck right on the water! The house was wonderfully supplied and a nice gift basket was included. The only "complaint" we really had was that the outside deck lights didn't seem to work. If they were working, we just never found the appropriate switch, nor was it marked. There are a couple of things the potential renter should keep in mind:

- There is no car access to this house. You can drop off your stuff within about a city block distance, but you're going to have to haul all your luggage the rest of the way on foot (so many don't bring much). The place you park your car is about two city blocks from the house. I would recommend the owners think about storing a wheelbarrow or other cart at the house that renters can use to more easily carry their luggage.

- The WiFi is fine within the house but almost non-existent outside. We couldn't get a suitable connection even on the deck, nor the bunkhouse behind the main house. Would recommend the owners look at relocating the router or maybe upgrading.

- Most of the houses on the walk back to the parking area have lights that come on at night, but some don't and some don't always work. If you think you'll be going to/from the house at night it's important you bring a flashlight. We found a few in the house but none had batteries.

All in all a really wonderful stay in a beautiful house. We would definitely return!

It was a beautiful spot right on the water. Lovely neighbors were on both sides. If you are bringing items, it is quit a hike to get to the house.
