CHARMING 1920'S ENGLISH COTTAGE WITH PUGET SOUND VIEWS. PET FRIENDLY. 3 BDS

Port Orchard House Rental Photos and Description

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

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 to antique glass windows that swing out 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!

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

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

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.

Ah yes, Del Mar Cottage....what can I say? My family and I have been coming to this cottage every fall and will for many years to come. I grew up on the east coast, where my family rented the same house at the shore every year. I want my family to have those same type of americana, cottage by the sea, Ralph Lauren meets Pottery Barn, experience. We get that at the cottage. Plus, the owner is some major interior decorator, and every year my family and I marvel at all the new furnishings, art, etc. Oh, and to whomever is reading this, when you're sitting at the table, grab a seat with your back to the built in hutch, so you're seated looking across the table and out the window. With this view, every couple of hours, the ferry coming from Seattle heading to Bremerton and the ferry coming from Bremerton heading to Seattle, actually sail right past each other, with Bainbridge island and the Olympic mountain range in the distance...who ever sees this first, yells out "The boats are crossing" even if someone is in the middle of a conversation:). Stupid right? Tell that to my family! And my wife says, thanks always for the nice bottle of wine, which she and I share, a few days in, relaxing on that porch swing...

Not my dream vacation home...

This was our second VRBO rental experience; this first was a cabin in North Carolina. We booked the cottage for 6 nights and the pictures are spot on. Unfortunately, you can’t tell how small this place is though (I bumped my elbows and toes on furniture so many times I lost count). It is decorated very nicely and the couch in insanely comfortable. It was nice to have the Apple TV and computer, as well as the Hot Tub! The Hot Tub is the best part of this rental. However, we were disappointed. We were there in the middle of August, mid 70’s most days, BUT there are only a few windows that open in the home, most are permanently shut. There is NO air conditioning, which we overlooked. So it did get hot and stuffy in the cottage and despite the ceiling fans in the dining/living rooms, it did not get cool enough for us to be comfortable. The TV’s in the bedrooms are not widescreen/HD and do not function well with the TIVO, no HBO or Showtime. There is only one bathroom, with no lock on the door and no tub for our toddler to take baths in. Things we overlooked I guess. The only view of the sound is the little peek you get between two houses in front of the cottage. I did ask the owner before booking if there were views of the sound from any of the windows in the cottage and he assured me you could see the sound from the dining room. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case. There was a mildew smell in the house so bad that the first thing we did when we got there was drive to Albertsons to buy some scented candles which helped a little. Two of the mornings we woke up to find the front gate was open (and yes we closed it behind us) a little weird but we figured it was just a signal from someone else’s opener. Then when we got back to the cottage on Monday night the garbage can was taken to the curb and the gate was open again. There’s no mention of anyone taking care of the place, and in the guide they ask that you take the garbage to the curb on Monday nights. One of the days the neighbor decided to get a bulldozer (literally) and clear his very large backyard, so it sounded like a construction zone the whole day. Lastly, this place has a TON of spiders all over! My daughter woke up with a giant one in her bed. I called the owner about the construction noise and the air conditioning and asked if we could leave a day early with the price for that day refunded. Unfortunately, he could not accommodate my request. We left a day early and lost the cost of the day anyway.
Owner's Response: I was shocked and saddened at Mr. C’s review of Del Mar Cottage. I work very hard at making Del Mar Cottage a beautiful and comfortable getaway. I encourage all of you to read our list of amenities on my VRBO listing and familiarize yourself with all that Del Mar Cottage has to offer. I invite you to read on and enjoy the Cottage’s 40 five-star reviews.

AMAZING RENTAL WITH ALL THE AMENITIES

We were privileged to stay a week in this beautiful cottage, which has tons of personality. I and my three daughters came to spend time together and for relaxation. We had a wonderful time! We loved coming "home", being able to sprawl out on the HUGE comfy sectional sofa, relaxing after a long day of sightseeing, watching a movie on the apple t.v. or sitting in the hot tub. WiFi access in the cottage was great and easy to access, and we used it! Cooking and doing laundry was quick and painless. We had packed light knowing that we would have laundry facilities, and it was really nice. The kitchen is beautiful!!! We found the Southworth Ferry extremely close and easy to access to get into Seattle, especially with GPS. Grocery stores, restaurants, movies are all within about a 15-20 minute drive to pick up groceries or get take out. We loved staying in this little beauty and will definitely do so again, should we find ourselves in this neck of the woods again!
Thanks Warren!
