Enjoy the small community living here with around 200 homes on this quaint 160 acre island in Gig Harbor just off the mouth of Horsehead Bay. It’s easy living here with beachy, modest, flip flop wearing vibes, as hitting up the beach in the summer is where it’s at!

There are picturesque water views from a multitude of windows on the backside of this home, perfect for enjoying serene, sunny days or chilly winters by the fire watching storms roll in, while feeling secluded inside the enormous trees that surround this home.

Relish one of the 3 decks for sipping wine (now’s the time to sign up for a wine club to fill your cellar!) and watching spectacular sunsets, lounging, hosting friends or family for dinner, drinking your morning coffee or soaking it up in the hot tub watching the night sky and being captivated by the moon’s light.

If being on the water is a hobby, then we’ll just sign you up! The community dock that’s just down the hill from this home makes it easy to launch your boat and putter around the Carr Inlet, McNeil Island, Fox Island and even dock in Tacoma at Narrows Marina. Or spend the day taking it around to the other side of Gig Harbor - go under the Narrows Bridge, past Point Defiance and dock at Tides Tavern for fish & chips, enjoying the view of the Gig Harbor Lighthouse. Living on Raft Island means you don’t have to worry about any rules about storing your boat either. Park it in the driveway if you’d like!


On the corner of Kopachuck Drive NW and Ray Nash Drive Northwest is the Island View Public House and Market, where you can enjoy a cold pint of beer or a glass of wine with friends, snack on a cheese plate and enjoy the incredible view. They also have a gas station and a small grocery store that carries some locally made items and has been serving this community for over 50 years.

Kopachuck State Park is beautiful throughout all the seasons we experience in the Pacific Northwest, but the best time of year is in the summer, when that cool breeze blows in from the Carr Inlet and you dig your toes into the warm sand along the beach. This 109 -acre marine and camping park has 5,600 feet of saltwater shoreline, and provides scenic views of sunsets, the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound.

Other activities and features include boating, clamming, crabbing, diving (Kopachuck Underwater Park), saltwater fishing, oyster harvesting, bird watching and wildlife viewing.

Rosedale Market is a mile and a half away and is a quaint place to grab a breakfast sandwich, an espresso, smoothie or tea, and made to order deli sandwiches.

If you’re in need of groceries or medical care, Uptown Gig Harbor is 7 miles away. Here you can find an abundance of dining and shopping like, Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant, which is currently offering takeout at this time. And not just any ‘ol takeout, they’ve been offering different margaritas of the week, so you’ll never miss happy hour! You’ll also find Blazing Onion Burger, Pizzeria Fondi, Cutters Point Coffee, and Blue Agave Mexican Grill , Ben & Jerry’s, and Panera. There’s plenty of shops like Marshall’s, Talbots, Kohl’s, Michael’s, HomeGoods. Fred Meyer, Harbor Greens and Safeway are open for essentials. If you need to see a doctor there’s a Franciscan Prompt Care and the MultiCare Urgent Care.
