Also check out our other Gig Harbor vacation rental: http://www.vrbo.com/preview/384260

We have finished a full remodel/renovation of this historic home within walking distance of everything Gig Harbor has to offer. It used to be a bus depot in the 20's and a fire station in the 60's!

Our home is located right in the center of it all. Looking directly at Gig Harbor Bay and Mt. Rainier. The view is picturesque! This home's central location makes it a perfect rental for your next stay in Gig Harbor. It is located right on Gig Harbor's main walking path and next to several restaurants; Anthony's, award winning JW's restaurant, Morso Wine Bar, Devoted Kiss breakfast and lunch, Marketplace Grille, and Finholms Deli. Within a quarter mile are kayak, paddle board and boat rentals, Donkey Creek park, the city park and boat launch, and the Gig Harbor History Museum. There is also a small marketplace a few doors down. The location is perfect and you could easily walk to everything.

The house is within one mile is the local Gig Harbor public dock and park where summer concerts and events are held. Also, the world famous Tides Tavern and Green Turtle waterfront fine dining.

The house has been fully renovated. Everything is brand new inside with high quality linens and beds and free WiFi. The decor has a retro vibe and embraces the home's age and unique architecture. The house was a bus barn in the 1920-30's.

The main living area has a huge kitchen with a retro kitchen table for four. It is fully equipped and if you find something you need please let us know and we will provide it! There is a glass dining room with six chairs that looks right at the amazing view. An adjacent living room has lots of seating and above the fireplace is a new 50' TV with cable and a DVD player.

There is a full bath on the main and three bedrooms. The largest has a California King and is adjacent to the bathroom. The vintage bathroom has been refurbished including the pink fixtures and existing chandelier to embrace the homes roots.

The other bedroom includes a queen bed and ample storage. The third bedroom on the main level has a lofted double bed with a twin bed underneath.

On the bottom floor we have a King bed and another TV/family room area and table and chairs. There is another full bathroom downstairs.

The view at the house is senstational but it also means the majority of the living space is on the 2nd level. The entry is through the outside stairs and there are interior (steep) stairs as well. For more questions email me!

There are some parking limitations for this property so please contact the owner with the number and size of vehicles for your stay.

There is a small grassy yard behind the house and a patio right off the kitchen. All facing the incredible view this home has to offer.

About Krista Philbrick

My husband is a commercial fisherman and we have 4 yr old boy girl twins and a young baby. We started renting our house in Gig Harbor during a slow fishing season and found a need for more vacation rentals. We renovated this home with the intention of renting it to all those people who enjoy what Gig Harbor has to offer!

Krista Philbrick purchased this house in 2013

Why Krista Philbrick chose Gig Harbor

The property is central, it's new, offers excellent views and its funky and fun! Where else do you find a chandelier in your pink bathroom!?

What makes this house unique

Close to everything, large space, amazing view, near parks and restuarants, history museum. Local gym across the street, marketplace within one block, large kitchen, large living room, new 50' flatscreen. Free high speed wifi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Krista,

I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home and space. That place was so beautiful and amazing. Honestly, I didn't really want to leave! Also, thanks for the hook up with your babysitters, they all seem great. The toy closet was also a hit.

Thank you,

Lauren

What a view!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Harbor Home for 10 days and it was a great experience. The house itself is comfortable and friendly, and had all the basics necessary as our base of operations for a family wedding. Perhaps our favorite aspect of the house was the deck -- the view of Mt. Rainier framed by Gig Harbor was amazing. The location of the house was ideal as well -- we walked into town almost every day, and took advantage of the boat rentals just a block away.
Kristi was attentive and accommodating, and her design skills were very apparent in the decor she chose throughout the house. All in all, a great house, great location, and a really great view.

Had such a great time! Small maintenance issue and the owners responded IMMEDIATELY!!!! Cutest house ever. They are fabulous decorators and I would highly recommend renting this house. I think I'll plan to check out their other Gig Harbor location next summer!

Harborview House

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the house for our oldest son's wedding weekend, and it was the perfect setting! Rather than spread our family out over four hotel rooms, we chose this house and couldn't have been happier! Everyone had a cozy sleeping space, yet there was plenty of room to hang out together in comfort. The decor was fab, the house was well stocked, and the weather was AMAZING for January in the Northwest and the picture window in front was like a postcard, with the harbor and the mountain as the backdrop. The owner was considerate, responsive, and a pleasure to deal with, and the home's history as a former firehouse was so neat! We can't wait for another opportunity to spend time in Gig Harbor - would definitely rent this property again!

Great hosts with easy interaction from start to finish. The home is perfectly located with a view of Gig Harbor. When the clouds clear, there is a great view of Mt Rainier. The home is comfortable with old time charm. It has plenty of space for a large family or a few couples. The home is conveniently located to golf courses which was the reason for our visit. Will return!

Harbor View House & Owner: Above & Beyond!

Harbor View House & Owner: Above & Beyond!

My husband, three children (then, age 9 weeks, 2 years, and 4 years), and I rented this house for a week-long vacation last September. We were traveling to WA from Old Town Alexandria, VA (just outside of D.C.) for a family wedding in Tacoma. After perusing available rental homes in the WA, my husband discovered Harbor View and proposed that we stay in WA for a week. I am so glad he found this house and I am so glad we went for it (I mean, traveling cross-country with three kids under the age of 5? Yikes).

The house: It is perfect. It is impeccably decorated. No detail, big or small, is overlooked. We immediately felt at home. My four-year old asked if we could stay "forever" and opined that this house had "prettier things" in it than our house. It was child friendly, well-equipped (we needed nothing - there were even condiments! Saran Wrap! Soap! TP!). The view was awesome. The location, for our purposes, great.

The owner: She is amazing. She let us into the house as early as she could on check-in day. She left a vibrating chair for our infant. She left art supplies and activities for our older girls. She checked in with us to make sure we were happy. She responded quickly to our inquiries/questions.

We enjoyed the local restaurants. We drove easily to state/local parks. We also enjoyed ferry rides to Seattle and managed a trip to the WA State Fair.

I want to return to this house. I will recommend this house to others. It was just what we were looking for in a vacation home: comfortable, convenient, pretty, and memorable.

Honestly, I could go on and on (but I have three children and, um, time simply isn't permitting). Just trust these words (and I swear I am neither previously acquainted w/ or related to the owner - this review is totally on my own non-biased volition!). The home and its owner is lovely. It made for a perfect vacation. We were sorry to leave and really hope we have an opportunity to rent this home again.

Excellent location to explore the Pacific Northwest.

  • 5 out of 5
A unique location overlooking the harbor and view at Mt. Rainier. From here we explored Tacoma, Mt. Rainier, Olympic Mountains and Seattle in a wedek. Gig Harbor caters well to (not too many) visitors with a museum, quaint shops and good restaurants. After getting used to the coded doorlock, we found the house well equiped and comfortable. The owners care about their property and guests.

There are paddle board, kayak, and boat rentals across the street. You a few hundred feet from several restaurants (Anthony's, Morso Wine Bar, Devoted Kiss, Marketplace Grille, and Finholms Deli) and a market.
