Del Mar Cottage is the charming 1920's Air Conditioned 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'.
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.
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 (Del Mar 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.
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.
We spent a wonderful week at the Del Mar English Cottage. The furnishings, books, and artwork are lovely and we especially enjoyed the view of the water and mountains. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. We look forward to returning to this beautiful property!
We'd like to thank you for allowing us to stay at your property. It exceeded anything we could have imagined. You thought of everything we could possibly need. The hot tub was the "icing on the cake". We enjoyed our vacation and allowed us to visit with our adult children and our first grandchild. Look forward to staying in cottage later to visit family again.
Beautiful house, all the details were thought of. And the hot tub is glorious! Very quick response time from the owner. Definitely would stay again!
We had a wonderful time & having rented other cabins ( this was a cottage & lived up to the title) this cottage was not only beautiful but well sup plied. We were looking for peace & quiet, comfort & natures beauty & we got all of that. Clean, neat & more. Thank you for a great stay, Katie & Gordon
The house is perfect! Upon entry I was greeted with a spotless house, music playing, and a bottle of wine. I had a couple people over for dinner there and it was so well appointed - I didn't need to bring anything but groceries! The hot tub was awesome, but you are pretty close to the neighbors so I did feel like we had to watch our noise level closely. The master bed is so comfortable. I had a wonderful two nights at this property and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
This was the first time we rented a property instead of staying at a hotel/motel on our vacation to Port Orchard to visit relatives.
The feeling we had right from the beginning was that we were home, even if for only several days, and immediately felt the freedom and
relaxation of being in our own place. Everything we needed, except food, was provided in ample supply. The hot tub was especially nice and
was the perfect touch to a long day. The beds were very comfortable, as was the living room furniture to sit and visit or watch TV.
We enjoyed the large dining room table which accomadated everyone with plenty of elbow room. The water view from the back deck is something we are not use to and was very picturesque. The ferry terminal at Southworth was very close and made the to and from the airport
that much easier. We found it easy to get to other locations during our stay with plenty of restaurant choices to choose from.
All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit.
