About Lorraine Heng
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
Why Lorraine Heng chose Port Orchard
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Wonderful, quiet and very clean and well kept
We had a great visit to Port Orchard and the house was perfect! Although we were busy sightseeing and did not get to spend a lot of time at the house we certainly did enjoy it while we were there. Loved the location and we had everything we needed.
Very clean and cozy
We really enjoyed our stay at this cute little home while in Port Orchard. It was close to everything, yet quiet and away from city chaos. It was nice being able to cook our own meals and just have a place to chill out. We ventured out to Bremerton and toured the Naval Museum and the Turner Joy while in town. Thanks Lorraine for making our stay seamless and easy. We prefer a vacation rental over a hotel anyday.
We absolutely loved this property. My husband and I came to visit our son who recently moved to Port Orchard . This charming home had everything we needed and we would definitely stay again.
