What a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. Enjoy the morning sunrise with a cup of coffee on the patio or while taking a soak in the hottub. During the day we played shuffleboard inside in the gaming room and then went out kayaking. Everything we needed was ready and waiting. Kayaks, paddles, even the life jackets. That evening we grilled some burgers on the gas grill and enjoyed the mommy and daddy geese that were walking thier little chick's around the backyard. The beds were very comfortable, plenty of extra linens, blankets and towells. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare a meal of whatever caliber. Enjoy!

This place is very special, this is our third trip here. Love the view, friendly neighbor, great outdoor activities. Will come back again.

My husband and I spent two nights in this lovely little cottage. The view of the water (and easy access to the beach) was so nice. The furniture and amenities in the cottage were very nice: tasteful and pretty. The cottage is close to state parks, Gig Harbor, and Tacoma (Point Defiance Park was a special treat!). It was a perfect balance of convenient location, while also feeling secluded, private, and peaceful. Thank you!

History of Gig Harbor, WA

In the year 1840, Captain Charles Wilkes brought a small boat called the “Captain’s Gig” into this sheltered harbor for protection, and a year later, Gig Harbor was born. The name of both the waterfront city and the bay surrounding it, Gig Harbor is considered a favorite tourist destination by many, with plentiful swimming, museums, parks, hiking trails, and breweries everywhere you go.

Fishing in Gig Harbor, WA

Whether you’re an avid fisherman yourself, or you plan to head down to the harbor and buy a fresh catch from someone who is, Gig Harbor knows its fish! Known as the “Maritime City” by many, lovers of seafood will find some of the freshest catches they’ve ever had, from Dungeness crab to Chinook salmon. If you want to get out on the water yourself, bring your own boat along, or visit Gig Harbor Rent-A-Boat for all kinds of rentals, from power boats to kayaks. 

Things to Do in Gig Harbor, WA

From brunching at the Devoted Kiss Cafe to visiting the annual summer festival at the Blue Willow Lavender Farm, there is plenty to keep even the most seasoned traveler occupied. In the summertime, pack a picnic lunch in your kitchen and have some family fun out on the water on a pedal boat! The Pacific Northwest is temperate in the winter, so if you love the outdoors, don’t let the drizzly weather stop you from your hiking adventure – just bring some sturdy boots and a waterproof jacket along! 

If you would rather stay dry, bring some cozy pajamas and a good novel or two and curl up in the living room of one of our Gig Harbor rental homes (many with their own fireplaces) for wintertime rejuvenation. Later, you can stop by 7 Seas Brewing for a warm, inviting atmosphere and a taste of what locals have named the best brewery in the South Sound.  

Day trips from Gig Harbor, WA

Gig Harbor claims to be “the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula” for a very good reason! Explorers can hike, fish, or even drive all the way to the Pacific Ocean for beachcombing and whale watching. Guests can also reach the southernmost point of Olympic National Park in about 70 miles.

For lots of shops, tourist attractions, and theatre, how about a city adventure? Just about a 45-mile drive from the center of downtown Seattle, guests staying in our Gig Harbor vacation rentals can reach the Emerald City in just under an hour when traffic is light. See the world-premiere of a new musical at the 5th Avenue Theatre or munch on a piroshky at bustling Pike Place Market.  

Only an 11-mile trip to Tacoma, automobile aficionados can visit America’s Car Museum, while fans of Chihuly’s work who can’t make it all the way to the Chihuly Garden and Glass under the Space Needle in Seattle can visit the Museum of Glass in Tacoma!

This corner of the country welcomes guests with a love of nature, a youthful spirit, and a sense of adventure. If you have what it takes, book your next getaway in one of our Gig Harbor vacation rentals today.
