3 Reasons to Love Scenic Raft Island, A Pacific Northwest Treasure
April 25, 2017
Nestled on the Puget Sound and just 10 minutes away from Gig Harbor, Raft Island offers Pacific Northwest living at its very best! Below, REALTOR® Janet Lee shares a few reasons why she loves this special island oasis:
Raft Island offers a nature lover’s paradise in a beautiful, private setting. “I have a client who grew up on Raft Island and it is a Huck Finn lifestyle!” shares REALTOR® Janet Lee. “Children are able to explore and run free much more so than in an urban environment.” This small community includes only 243 lots in the neighborhood.
There are so many wonderful outdoor amenities to take advantage of! A few of the offerings include 2 community beaches, a boat launch, tennis courts, and a park to enjoy. Plus, there are many safe opportunities for walking and riding bikes.
Enjoy the beach lifestyle while still being close to city amenities. “Almost everywhere you turn you can see the water,” shares Janet. Raft Island offers residents the unique opportunity to enjoy a beautiful seaside lifestyle that will allow you to feel like you’re on vacation all year long! Plus, you’re just a 10-minute drive to Gig Harbor (and just a 15-minute drive to Downtown Gig Harbor). Shopping, dining, and services are all within reach, and conveniently, a brand new bridge to the island was completed in 2012.
