Get to Know this Neighborhood

Located across a bridge and about a 20 minute drive from Gig Harbor and about 30-40 minutes from Downtown Tacoma- life on Fox Island is the best of both worlds!

Why this Neighborhood is so Great

Fox Island is quintessential northwest living. Many homes on the outer edges of the island have incredible views of Mt Rainier or the Olympics as well as the water, while homes on the inner part of the island have privacy, property, and a rural feeling. No matter where you live on the island, access to fishing, boating, or a walk on the water is available to everyone.

What to do in this Neighborhood

Locals love fishing, kayaking, boating (Fox Island Yacht Club is located on the island) and much more. There's a secret pub in the back of the local grocery store, but other than that- if you're looking for restaurants and nightlife you're going to have to leave the island!


Fox Island is home to a large variety of architecture with many types of architecture represented.

What the Neighbors are Saying

It's one thing to form an opinion based on your first impressions of a neighborhood, but it's another to hear from the people who call it home.

Awesome place to raise a family! Great schools, small town feel but lots of shopping and restaurants (more on the way!), beautiful beaches, state parks, and lots of options for living (acreage, waterfront, to urban style)!


Although its not nearly as much of a small town these days, Gig Harbor is still appreciated for its beautiful scenery, and larger, wooded parcels of land. In recent years many restaurants have opened and improvements have been made to the public spaces and parks.
