Overview

Port Orchard House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom with queen bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)

Locally Managed by Del Mar Vacation.

See US Open 2015 rates below.

The Cottage:

Del Mar Cottage is the charming 1920's little cottage by the sea you've been dreaming about. The character of this cottage, from traditional architectural details like crystal door knobs and elegant crown molding with beautiful easy open windows to let the cool sea breeze in, make this get a way a 'must stay'.

The Garden:

Relax on the garden's porch swing while reading and sipping your favorite lemonaid. Later enjoy some stargazing from your luxurious outdoor spa while planning the next day's ferry ride, antiquing or golf game.

The Neighborhood:

Just 15 minutes north of Gig harbor is Del Mar Cottage's tiny neighborhood of South Colby, nestled between Port Orchard, just 5 minutes to the West, or the Southworth ferry dock to Seattle, just 4 minutes the East. This charming cottage seems to have guarded the bay for many, many decades. Make Del Mar Cottage part of your next get away. You'll want to come back every year!

Walks & Dog Lovers: There are several wonderful walks to take your dog on for an adventure. Del Mar Cottage is one house back from the beach, but there is a quiet, single lane frontage road that is directly on the beach, great for walks and viewing all that the beach has to offer. The frontage road (SE Cornell) is just west of the Del Mar Cottage gate.

Then, just 1/8 of a mile east from the cottage is Harper Pier, overlooking Puget Sound. Continue your walk another 1/8 of a mile to the park just past SE Scatterwood Lane; great for letting the dog run in the fenced little league base ball area.

Across from the park is a natural boat and kayak launch, great for letting the dog play in the water!

About Warren Knapp (Cottage)

We were lucky enough to find Del Mar Cottage years ago. The home has been beautifully maintained since the 1920’s and we thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to share its beauty with travelers worldwide.

Warren Knapp (Cottage) purchased this house in 2007

Why Warren Knapp (Cottage) chose Port Orchard

We have enjoyed this location because of the water views and the short 40-minute trip into Seattle via the nearby Southworth Ferry.

What makes this house unique

Listening to the waves against the shore in the evening, and waking up to the sounds of the morning brings a peaceful start to your day at Del Mar Cottage. Save some time for beach combing or strolling to nearby Harper’s Pier.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can not say enough how wonderful Del Mar Cottage was. It was so perfect for our graduation celebration and then just to relax for some vacation time. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and out on the BBQ grill. I want your cookbooks! We so enjoyed having the hot tub! My dogs thought the yard was fantastic. We had almost made friends with Coco by the time we left. My little old dog was our vacation diva! She had a blast and surprised us all at how fiesty vacation made her :) Your art work was beautiful! We love Port Orchard and the surrounding area and hope we can come back soon! Thank you again for sharing your wonderful vacation home.

Relaxing Escape

We had another wonderful time at DelMar cottage. We loved our week here soaking up the October sun in the yard. Loved hearing the birds in the morning sipping my coffee. Then at night star gazing as we enjoyed the hot tub. Enjoyed the kitchen again creating new recipes. Thanks again and we look forward to coming back to do some more relaxing and exploring in this great area!!!!
All the best

Charming indeed!

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week at the cottage while visiting family. The location is perfect. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, maps and brochures for things to do locally and beyond. The bed in the master (the only bedroom used) was very comfortable. We usually have trouble sleeping away from home, but not this time. We had family over for dinner a couple of nights, and everyone raved about the place, especially the living room sofa. We sat 8 comfortably at the dining room table. The kitchen is well equipped for the average home cook. The grounds are so nice, little seating nooks everywhere. There is a view of the sound, obstructed slightly by another house. We loved looking out from the dining and living rooms, as well as the back yard at the water, we even saw some eagles. It's a five minute walk to the water's edge. Every morning was begun with bird watching and the sounds of the ocean. Heaven! The cottage is ideal for a couple or a couple with kids. Although small, it feels roomy. It has only one small bathroom, which could pose a problem for a larger family or multiple couples. We loved it and would definitely stay here again!

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I spent a wonderful week in Port Orchard at this great cottage. The photos were quite accurate and we found the property clean and well maintained. We were warmly welcomed with dimmed lights, music playing and a bottle of wine with glasses. There were a number of special ammenities like spa robes, toiletries, coffee pods that made us feel pampered. The cottage is a 1920's style but has been upgraded inside with a casual elegance but still keeping to the early decor and details. Sleeping areas are a nice size and very comfortable. Although the bathroom is narrow and does not have a tub, the shower is large and glorious. Kitchen has new appliances, the dining room easily seats 6-8 and the living room has lots of comfortable seating for watching TV. But the best part is the patio, deck and hot tub. We spent a lot of time eating, reading and relaxing at the table under an umbrella or in the hot tub. Although there is a house between the cottage and the shoreline, there is still a lovely view. Lots of trees, plants and shrubs which were not only beautiful but also gave a lot of privacy and quiet. We had deer in the garden just below the patio on four mornings! Gig Harbor, Poulsbo and Port Townsend are an easy 30-60 minutes away. On the waterfront in Port Orchard is a great restaurant Amy's on the Bay, summer concerts on Thursdays and a delightful Farmers Market on Saturdays. The Manchester Grill in Manchester (about five miles from the cottage) offers a great view of the Seattle skyline and if you are very lucky a view of Mt. Rainier! We decided to take the Fauntelroy to Southworth car ferry instead of driving from SEA/TAC down to Tacoma and up the pennisula (about 1-2 hours depending on traffic) and it was not only fun but great views of Puget Sound surroundings. It is only about 8 miles north of SEA/TAC, just a forty minute crossing and Southworth Ferry Terminal is only about five nimutes from the cottage. The owner is only a phone call away and very helpful if needed. We would definitely recommend this lovely cottage and just may return one day!

Cozy and well equipped Cottage in a laid back neighborhood

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 6 stayed here for a week to attend a family celebration of life and memorial service in the area. We loved the place the minute we walked in; beautifully decorated and furnished tastefully. (Didn't hurt that a nice bottle of welcome wine was waiting for us with glasses and a corkscrew right on the table!) The dining room has a HUGE table and we utilized just about all of the 10 dining room chairs on more than one occasion. My 84 year old handicapped mother attended an evening meal there one night and she had no problem at all maneuvering around the cottage. The living room sofa is super comfy and in a pinch could make a fine bed as well! The hot tub was by far the favorite amenity of my granddaughter and our 20-something children. I had a girls night with my sisters one evening and we had a marvelous time in the tub too. The tub had been filled with fresh water the morning before we checked in...super clean and it was 101F. Perfect!

Lots of plates, glasses, cups, silverware, pots, pans; most any kitchen utensil or cooking device you need. It is equipped with a Jenn-aire cooktop and a wall oven. There is a BBQ grill out on the deck that we didn't use, but sure did look inviting! The laundry facilities are very nice, high end front load washer and dryer. Lots of towels and sheets available in a HUGE linen closet (where we also scored some nice robes to wear out to the hot tub!).

There is a peek-a-boo view of the water from the cottage and the ferry's were visible on their routes to and from Seattle. There is a tall, broad house immediately in front of the cottage so the view is blocked except on either side of the house in front. Didn't really matter to us though. I took a nice run one morning along the low traffic road the cottage is on. Ran along the water in some places, over a small bridge, up and down some small single lane roads. Quite wonderful!

Because the cottage doesn't have but one bathroom and no bathtub it might not be a good fit for everyone. We managed tho with 6 people!
All in all this was a really fun place to stay. I look forward to another visit sometime soon!
