About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 9 Sleeps Center Of It All With Stunning Views

Harbor Home Vacation Rentals Exclusive: 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.There are slightly steep stairs that go down to the bottom floor.

The view at the house is sensational 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 8 yr old boy girl twins and a 3 yr old. 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 Puget Sound

The property is central, it's newly remodeled, 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 restaurants, history museum. Local 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

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The photos are deceiving, the house is old and needs lots of repair and updating. Views are excellent with a good location, though it is located on a busy street across from the harbor , not right on the harbor as seems to be indicated from the pictures. There are very steep stairs going up to the house and also going down to the lower bedroom, which I am sure are not up to code. Outdoor furniture is old and dirty and we were unable to use it.There is no emergency exit from the basement bedroom as the doors are padlocked shut!! Overall disappointing.👎�

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The views out the front windows are beautiful. The house is convenient to shops and easy to find with on site parking. It was comfortable for our family and very spacious. We would stay here again during our next visit if the house is available.

Beautiful home in Gig Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Gig Harbor home so much. It was a lovely space with a spacious deck with outside seating that we enjoyed mornings and evenings. Inside, the space was enough for all parties to find individual time as well as great group space in the den and dining areas. Kitchen accommodated our breakfast needs and the wifi and TV was awesome. The views cannot be beat! We would definitely want to stay in this lovely home within walking distance to all the fun Gig Harbor has to offer again.

Fantastic property!

We had a wonderful time at this property. Perfect location and lots of room. Walking distance to the entire harbor and a view worth its weight in gold. Decorated to perfection. Everything you need and more. Can't wait to go back!

Great vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, gorgeous view and easy drive to downtown Gig Harbor. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is due to a few minor maintenance items that needed taken care of. The beds were very comfy and the house quiet even though it sits close to the street. The house is decorated Art Deco- very fun! It would have been nice to have a a bit more comfortable furniture for book reading on a rainy day... All in all, great vacation rental!!

Perfect retro home

  • 5 of 5

My crew and I were out in Gig Harbor for my wedding. The Robot House was absolutely perfect. The location was right in the middle of town. We were able to have coffee in the morning and look out a window at the bay and Mt. Rainier. The home was warm and well stocked with everything we needed.

Our home looks directly at Gig Harbor Bay to Mt Rainier. You can see all the commercial fishing vessels and watch the sail boat races. 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. This is on Gig Harbors main walking path and is a very short walk into town with more restaurants and all the shops. Enjoy people watching and the exceptional view from the best downtown Gig Harbor location available.
