By the Seashore with Beach Access and Panoramic Sound View

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 25, 2014
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Step into the living room of The Beachside Retreat. Relax and feast your eyes on the panoramic view of Puget Sound, the Seattle skyline, and the Cascade Mountains. Binoculars are by the window. Look past the porch of the neighbor's 1900s home and you might see Mount Rainier in all its glory. You have a good view of the fishing pier, the boat launch, and the picnic tables at the park.

In the living room you can either sit or stretch out on the hide-a-bed. Also in the living room are a large and a small over-stuffed chair. You might watch television or read. The coffee table by the couch is one that raises. This table gives you a convenient place for playing board games, card games,or putting a puzzle together. A puzzle, cards and some games are stored under the table More board games are available from the manager. Coasters are there for your beverages.Two of the six kitchen chairs are usually used in the living room. You will find lamps, end tables, a desk and office chair. Look in the desk for a map and a tour book. A few office tools like stapler, staple remover, scissors, and pens are available in the desk.

By the entrance you will also see umbrellas in an umbrella stand, a step stool, and a trash container. The garbage can and recycle container are located by the driveway. Early Thursday the garbage truck empties the garbage can. The recycle truck comes every other week. If you would enjoy reading the paper the manager will recycle The Kitsap Sun and the Seattle Times to your porch. The library also has a copy of the papers. Most days the library opens at 1 p.m. There are also some activities in the community room of the library at different times on different days.

You'll find a fully equipped kitchen with oven and range and pans for baking, roasting, or broiling. Use the grinder, the coffeemaker or the waffle iron. Blend up a smoothie in the blender. Use the popcorn maker. If you don't feel like cooking, walk over to the Manchester Grill and let someone else cook and clean up for you. Under the sink are the dish soap, rack, scrubbers, sponges, brushes. The pans are in the next cupboard. Broiler pan is below the oven. Many small tools, silverware, and kitchen items are in the drawers. Cutting boards

knife holder, banana hook, paper towel holder, and toaster are on the counter. Dishes, serving bowls, mugs, pitchers, cream and sugar, napkin holder, spoon holder and more are found in the cupboards.

The barbeque is outside, and so is a round, glass-top picnic table that seats four. If you want to use the table umbrella, request it. In the summer some fruit or vegetable may be growing in the garden. The Farmer's Market is held on Saturdays from May to October in a park on the waterfront. Just south of Fred Meyer is a produce stand.

Dress up the dining table with placemats and use the vase for flowers. Two extra table leaves are stored in a space near the microwave, so the table can seat up to six with the addition of two more wooden chairs. Ask the manager if a booster seat or children's toys or games would be helpful. Let the manager know if you plan to invite others to the rental. We keep track of both parking and cars using the private lane.. Overnight guests must be approved ahead of time.

In the bathroom shower you may notice having the extra space a curved hotel style rod provides. Take a bath if you prefer. Reach under the counter and you'll find the hair dryer.There is cabinet space below the sink. You'll also find extra paper towels and toilet paper stored here.The mini sewing kit is just behind the mirrored mini sliding door. Cleaning supplies, and both beach towels and bath towels, hand towels, and wash clothes are found in the tall bathroom cabinet. A toilet higher than standard height is easier to use, especially for senior citizens. We hope that little conveniences like night lights, room deodorizer, shampoo and soap will make you feel at home.

Check the linen closet in the hall for dish towels, dish rags, placemats, light bulbs and a second set of sheets and pillow cases.. It is next to the thermostat. Turn the thermostat to the temperature you like. The furnace is electric.

The bedroom wall is completely used up by the double bed and night stands on each side of the bed, A large chest of drawers is opposite the bed and on it is an extra television that is used for watching videos. The closet spans the west side of the room. It has plenty of clothes hangers as well as the broom, dustpan, vacuum cleaner, ironing board, fan and an extra pillow. A foam topper that can be placed on the hide-a-bed is also stored here. Extra blankets revolve from linen closet, bedroom closet, and under-bed storage, depending on the time of year.

Beauty inside and out is important. With this in mind, pictures decorate each room and the hall. Two silk flower arrangements are located between the living room and kitchen and dining room. The shrub growing under the large window in the living room is a rhododendron, our state flower.

About the Owner

Every day I wake up and check what is happening on the beach. Every night I see the lights of downtown Seattle. I watch the ducks and geese swim, hear the sandpipers calling, the crows and gulls flying and landing in the nearby trees. A herron might be perching on one leg. The flowers bloom and fade, and the garden could always use more care. I have always enjoyed reading, music, gardening, baking, learning, and teaching. I worked in college as a secretary and receptionist. I taught public school. I raised a family and did volunteer work. I worked as a bookkeeper and customer service representative at a violin shop. I play violin. I play for the church's holiday cantatas. I sometimes sing in the choir. Both my husband and I are retired. We have enjoyed traveling in the USA and to foreign countries, and we enjoyed two cruises with my mother and others in the family. We have wonderful, supportive friends.

A view and a beach!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! In case you're seeing this as just a house trailer, you'll want to take another look. We would have happily stayed in a tent to get the incredible view and beach that this rental offers, but we didn't need to. This place is very tidy and efficient and had everything we needed and more, besides boasting a very gracious hostess. We loved that the beach was just below us, that Yukon Harbor filled the picture window day and night, and that we could see Seattle across the way any time. Great: The rental price is comparable to local motels but with the benefit of kitchen and indoor/outdoor living. Since we have family in the area, we hope to rent this place again.

A fantastic two weeks

  • 5 of 5
My wife and i wanted to stay near our grandchildren for a couple of weeks. I found this rental on line. I booked it sight unseen. What a wonderful place! Great views of Seattle and Mt. Rainier across the sound. Just a block from a store, resteraunt, post office, and bar. Not to mention the beach and boat docks.

The trailer, although not big, was perfect for our stay. Covered patio/car port, nice kitchen, comfortable living room and large bathroom. The bed was small but as big as you could get in the room.

I had the most relaxing vacation I've had in many years.

I'd like to thank owner Peggy Warren for her hospitality during our stay.

Location

From the Owner

The mobile home was set in place for a dear relative and her husband. They lived there for quite a while. Another relative also used the home. They took good care of it. I am sentimentally attached to the family home and have fond memories of visiting the people here. I hope others will enjoy the same sights and sounds, make good memories, and have a relaxing vacation.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : SEATAC at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Manchester Pub at 0.2 Miles Nearest Ferry : Fauntleroy-Southworth at 6 Miles Nearest Golf : Village Green Golf Course at 5 Miles Nearest Train : Seattle (by ferry) or Tacoma (by car) at 30 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 16 at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Manchester Grill at 0.2 Miles Nearest Beach : In front of house Car: necessary

Relax and listen to the waves. Make a sandcastle. Identify shells. Wade in the water. The beach is just a walk down the steps or a stroll down a no-steps path by the home next door.

Have a barbeque. Watch videos. Listen to music. Take photos. Play croquet. Enjoy the view. The coffee table lifts up, so its easy to reach the puzzle pieces, or to play board games or cards. If you bring your own computer there is Wi-Fi available. Feel like a short walk? Walk to the Manchester Library to buy books and to use a computer. The post office, hair salon, restaurant, and pub are within a block of each other. Manchester Community Church is a 4 or 5 minute drive up the hill. The choir starts the worship service at 10:25 on Sunday mornings. The service ends with cookies and beverages at noon.

A tour guide and a map is in the desk, for your travel planning.Want to see the sights? Walk or drive two miles to Manchester State Park. Check out Port Orchard, Bremerton, Seattle, Tacoma, Gig Harbor, Poulsbo, or other places around the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas. Take a ferry ride. Southworth ferry dock is about six miles away, so allow at least fifteen minutes to drive there.. Your ride will take you to Fauntleroy dock, usually with a stop at Vashon Island. Watch out for Seahawk football days - the boats are packed with fans, so you may have to wait for another ferry.

The drive into Port Orchard is about 15 minutes. This is the closest place If you need a laundromat, bank, medical services, movie theater, golf course, bowling alley, tennis court, fitness center, shops, churches, tea house, specialty restaurants, museum, or art gallery.
