PORT ORCHARD WA, 3 BDRM HOME AWAY FROM HOME ENHANCED BY NATURE, DOG FRIENDLY

Port Orchard House Rental Photos and Description

Furnished 3 Bdrm Home Near Port Orchard Water Front, Pet Friendly

Centrally located for both work and play, this three bedroom Port Orchard house is perfect for temporary housing needs. The views from every room are enhanced by the beauty of nature, creating a sense of serenity: The Olympic Mountains, the water, the surrounding, a lush green belt in the private canyon behind the house. For your added comfort, the house has a huge patio with outdoor seating, and an expansive lawn. A deck off the kitchen enhances quiet observation of wild life and is a convenient place to barbeque. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature of the Puget Sound, yet be close to the amenities of larger cities.

The house is about an hour from Seattle by ferry or freeway. It's located within two blocks of the Kitsap County Administrative Offices and Court House; and it’s a fifteen minute drive or ferry ride from Bremerton. It makes a great home base while you take care of legal matters, explore Puget Sound, visit family and friends, go house hunting, and/or transition to a new job. Well behaved children and dogs are most welcome.

The family style kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, dishes, flatware, toaster, coffee pot, microwave, stove, dishwasher, and a kitchen table for four with a view! The dining room table will easily accommodate six. China, stem ware, and candles are available for special occasions.

The living room is in the center of the house; it has a comfy leather sofa, recliner, and side chairs, plus a fireplace and HDTV.

The house has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a double size bed with a walk-in closet in the second bedroom. The third has a twin size bed plus a desk so the room can also be used as an office. Wi-Fi is provided. The beds are freshly made and towels are included for your convenience.

Grocery stores, salons, gyms, restaurants, movie and live theaters and even a 24 hour Urgent Care are located with two miles of the house so you don’t have to go far for anything you might need. McCormick Woods Golf Course, Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club, and the Gold Mountain Golf Course are all within a six mile radius.

Enjoy a meal, entertainment, or wedding reception at the McCormick Woods Clubhouse Restaurant and Bar, or drive down the Port Orchard waterfront for dinner at the Light House or Amy’s on the Bay. Live theater at the Western Center for Fine Arts, located near the Marina is fun, as well as the local Farmer’s Market and Antique stores.

Be sure to take a scenic ferry ride to Seattle for a day of shopping, Pike’s Market, and/or ride the mono-rail, to check out the view of Puget Sound from the Space Needle. Additional day trip destinations include the Olympic Rain Forest, Ocean Shores and/or Mt. Rainier or Mt St. Helen’s. The Kitsap Transit and the WA State Ferry System can take you on scenic journey to The San Jaun Islands, and British Columbia.

After teaching for thirty four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longer, we have retired to a life of creating 'home'(s)along the west coast and sharing with others. Our Port Orchard home is a keeper! When we are not working on a home, in a yard, or on the computer, we are enjoying grandchildren, traveling, reading,walking with friends or 'workng out' at the YMCA.

Lorraine Heng purchased this house in 1986

We love the ambience, especially the fresh air, forests, clear skies and the natural beauty of the Puget Sound area. It is a great place to take a deep breath, relax,enjoy nature, and explore the wealth of outdoor activities. Being removed from the huslte and bustle of major cities, yet still having easy access to Seattle and other favorites like Gig Harbor, Silverspring, Tacoma, and British Columbia has been an important consideration for us.

One chief advantage of staying here is the price: It is very inexpensive for what you get. Also, access to downtown Seattle via the ferry is simple, yet pleasurable with fantasstic scenery along the way. Best of all the house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and very peaceful.

Nice peaceful clean home

  • 4 of 5
Lovely house – spacious, warm, inviting and comfortable. As other reviewers noted – peaceful yet only 5 minutes to downtown Port Orchard so conveniently located. There is only one bathroom but it is large and well-stocked with plenty of plush good quality linens. For those of us who like to cook the kitchen could be better stocked (e.g. missing some basics like measuring stuff, grater, baking pans, etc) but it’s functional. A little short on the wine glasses but lots of coffee cups!

One of the best things about this house is the deck out back which is very private and exceptionally peaceful. From the deck you overlook a greenbelt area with gigantic beautiful trees (we live in Montana but don’t often see trees this tall), lots of birds that sing and chirp, and deer. You can also see this view from windows in the kitchen and breakfast nook area.

TV is wonderful – huge, modern flat screen with good selection of channels including local (we like watching the local news channels when we travel, informative). Owner needs to leave instructions on how to operate the TV remotes. There were 4 of them – a little confusing but we finally got it figured out.

I downgraded this by one star because the internet in the house does not work well at all. Owner needs to upgrade the router and the service. If you’re using phone or IPAD to access internet this is a non-issue but for people like me who travel with their laptops & sometimes need to do work research on the internet we need strong, reliable, fast internet in the home. That’s not the case with this house. It was so excruciatingly slow (felt like the old days of “dial up”) that it was impossible to load most sites such as google maps, weather channel, trip advisor, etc. Took 10 minutes just for the Yahoo mail sign in page to come up, another 5 to sign in and finally get to my Yahoo mail but unable to ever get any emails sent. I gave up and went to the Starbuck’s at Safeway a couple miles away, ordered a coffee, and sat there for a couple hours every day to get my work and travel research done.

Overall except for the internet situation this is a very good VRBO property, photos and description accurately match reality and it was REALLY CLEAN and that is always extremely important to me when I stay at these types of homes. This was probably the cleanest home I’ve ever stayed in. Owners are responsive and refund of deposit was right on time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback regarding the internet. We well see that it is upgraded. The kitchen supplies have been replenished with new wine glasses, measuring cup, graters and baking pans. We even upgraded the mattress cover! Thanks again for your suggestions.

VERY CUTE HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
This was a perfect home for our mini vacation. Perfect size home for us and the 2 kids. May get a bit tight if you have older kids, but was perfect for our 2 teens. Conveniently located close to town and in a very quiet neighborhood. Neighbors were very nice and friendly. Great location for an early morning walk to start the day, and if you are up for the challenge, great exercise climbing the hill from town.
The house itself is quite cute. All the necessities are already there, just grab a few groceries and all else is already in the home.
We took our dog with us and appreciate finding a pet friendly home to stay. Only issue with traveling with a pet here is the lack of a fenced in yard. Not a big issue with us, but if your pet needs to be outside and unattended, it will need to be tied in the front. Other than that, very accommodating home in all aspects. Would recommend it for anyone coming to the area.

A cozy hideaway surrounded by green

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four and our tiny dog stayed in this lovely, well-kept home for two nights. The floors are wood throughout, the furnishings tasteful and refined, and the location was ideal. The property is tucked into a quiet cul-de-sac, so although everything is nearby, one feels as if they are in the forest, surrounded by trees. There is one bathroom to share, but it is large, and in addition to the comfy breakfast nook (with an AMAZING view through it's picture window), there is a big formal dining room with stately chairs suitable for a birthday toast or a Thanksgiving feast. The kitchen was roomy and easy-to-love. All facilities were in good working order; the yard was meticulously kept, and the neighborhood was quiet. Additionally, the property was all on one level, so no tricky stairs to navigate for those with limited mobility. Our host was so sweet and helpful; it was a pleasure. Such a lovely treat in tiny Port Orchard.

Great House in Port Orchard

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here during the holiday season. The house was immaculate. It had all the necessities we needed. It felt like home. The neighborhood is quiet and just a short ferry ride to Seattle. Looking forward to staying here again on our next trip to Seattle.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5
Three adults and our young grandaughter stayed here this summer for 6 nights. It is evident that the owner makes a huge effort to provide all the comforts and necessities to make her house convenient and comfortable for her guests. We were close to everything we needed and just up the BIG hill from the pier. Thanks Lorraine for a nice stay.

My opinion

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at your vacation rental. The house was very clean and very inviting. The scenery of the Greenbelt was beautiful. Everything about the house was great. Also appreciated that the house was pet friendly. My personal opinion of anyone taking a dog to a vacation rental is that the dog should be crated at night or when people are gone from the house. That I did. The owners were very nice and very accommodating. The location made you feel as if you were in the middle of nowhere, but in reality you were only a few blocks from local businesses. Loved the off leash park nearby.
