The view and home were so great we didn't really ever want to leave, or need to. We had wonderful weather which made the stay even better.
The house is on Raft Island, a 15 minute drive from old Gig Harbor and the commercial area. I wanted to say closer so I could walk, but the different driving routes to old town were interesting. We stayed while it was a bit cold, so wasn't able to enjoy the waterfront amenities, like the canoe, kayak and paddleboards and seating on the emassive deck facing the water. But we were able to enjoy the views from inside the house from the kitchen/dining, living, and master on the first floor, and one of the bedrooms on the bottom floor. Great wireless internet and they have a smart tv so you can cast from your phone / tablet if you can't figure out how the TV works :) Would love to visit in the summertime! And bring the family since there's tons of room.
