Family Celebration in Gig Harbor
This was my first experience using VRBO and it could not have gone better. The house was exactly what we needed and the amazing views of Mt. Rainer and the water were icing on the cake. Due to my mother’s specific needs, we required a main level living space and this delivered. Master bedroom and full bath and all the main rooms were accessible for her. The owner was proactive on all communications and responsive to any inquiries from me including returning the deposit ahead of schedule. The house gave us the space to spend time together as a family celebrating two graduations and seeing our extended family that lives in the area. Definitely would rent again when we are back in Gig Harbor.
Lovely location, fiendly homeowner and well-maintained house
Oxana was very responsive from the get-go. She responded to all my queries over text very promptly. We knew well in advance about getting the key and the wifi password etc. She even sent us a video on how to use the TV and snapshots on the exact location of the beacjh access key etc.
Coming to the use, it was super clean and we could see that it was well kept-up. The bath fittings, blinds etc all looked new and contrary to most rental homes, this one had areally good Smart TV and fire TV to boot. The home itself has a pretty good view. From the deck on a sunny day you could see Mt. Rainier. There is plently of backyard and the kids had a good time there. The only problem really was that the noise insulation wasnt great. Every tiny pin drop on the uppoer floor could be heard from donwnstairs. So we could not really sleep if the kids were upstairs. The community also has a private breach - we paid three visits to that beach. It's super nice and we had fun flying kites and relaxing in the Cabana there while the kids were playing in the beach. The surrounding area in general, is also very pretty. We did a 1.2 mile hike to Sunset Beach Park which was nearby and that felt good.
Most of the time, we'd have one major issue with our vvacation homes - like the kitchen was not well stocked or the TV was outdated, but this one had none.
After the stay, Oxana was very prompt in refuncding all of the $1000 security deposit back to us.
Overall I would highly recommend the house, the location (specially their private community beach) and the prompt and super-friendly owner.
BEWARE: Take pictures so you don't get scammed out of your deposit
The owner kept our entire deposit and falsely claimed our dogs destroyed her home with feces. It's hard to put in words how infuriating and disappointing this is after a mediocre stay. Her carpets were dirty and dingy when we arrived but we wouldn't have complained if she didn't try to make such an outlandish claim about us. We even tried vacuuming the carpet when we arrived but none of her vacuums in the house work. We also only used one bathroom and one bedroom our entire stay but she claimed all of her bathroom/bedroom carpets had poop on them. Our dogs NEVER pooped in the house. Even if a dog had an accident in the home, who would just leave it there? Let alone, who would even live in a home and leave poop everywhere during their stay?? I asked for proof and she of course couldn't provide any. She sent pictures of her carpets and duvet in her RECYLCE BIN. No pictures of poop anywhere. If they did have poop on them (which they clearly didn't) then why are they in the recycle bin? She also sent a video of the stained carpets she put outside. Well, they were dirty when we got there and after a month long stay it was impossible to make them any cleaner, especially without a working vacuum! Our dog did chew one of her remotes which we take total blame but that shouldn't cost us our ENTIRE deposit. We swept and cleaned the entire place before we left, so we would've noticed if there was some mystery poop accident. We even shaked out her carpet outside to compensate for the lack of a vaccuum. We also picked up all our dog poop in the yard before we left, even though there were tons of old dog poop from her dogs all over the yard. I was able to reach her buy phone and explained all of this to which she replied she'd give 1/2 of our deposit back. I told her 1/2 was still a lot of money and not right since her claims were totally false! Even so I never received 1/2 of our deposit, instead the entire deposit is gone. I assume she knew it was time for new furnishings and due to our long stay we ended up the perfect victims to place the blame on. My advice is to steer clear, but if you do risk staying here make sure to take plenty of before and after pictures. Also bring a mattress topper for the uncomfortable old box spring mattress.
I returned $1,000 which is half. You placed my blankets on the floor for your dogs to go poop on and many other carpets i had throughout the house. I sent you videos and pictures. I am not going to wash it and let next guest use it!!! I hope you will never do that at someone else's house again! Very disrespectful!
Beautiful view, very responsive and attentive owner, very well stocked home!
The owner has a very well stocked home which has all the necessities and then some! She was very thoughtful, accommodating, and responds quickly. Home was comfortable and well taken care of. The home has a beautiful view that is just breathtaking at times when driving up and there are views of Mt Rainier from the back porch. The house had everything we needed to help accommodate our family!
A perfect fit for our family!
This house was exactly what we needed - cozy, clean, and comfortable. We are already looking at the calendar to see when we can come back!
Having the master bedroom upstairs and the guest beds downstairs was nice - it allowed the adults to stay up and chat while the kiddo slept. The house was in a lovely, quiet neighborhood that had the convenience of only being 10 minutes away from downtown Gig Harbor. The owner of the property was very attentive and available to answer questions.
Beautiful home with plenty of room located in a place of jaw-dropping beauty. Wonderful, kind owner!
We absolutely loved the house and Gig Harbor! We spent the days exploring the area - it is only an hour to Seattle and about 2 hours to Mount Rainier National Park. So many little parks everywhere to hike and bike! We also loved sitting on the beautiful deck with a glass of wine enjoying the view of the Sound and Mt. Rainier in the evenings. With two boys (one in college and other in high school) everyone had plenty of room to spread out. The owner of the house was incredibly kind and thoughtful! She made sure we had everything we needed but was never intrusive. This was our first time using VRBO and our experience in this beautiful house in Gig Harbor made us want to use it again.
