3 Bdrm Furn House Near Seattle/Port Orchard Waterfront Child/Pet Friendly

The views from every room of this three bedroom, Port Orchard house are enhanced by the beauty of nature, creating a sense of serenity: The Olympic Mountains, the water, the surrounding, a lush green belt in the private canyon behind the house. For your added comfort, the house has a huge patio with outdoor seating, and an expansive lawn. A deck off the kitchen enhances quiet observation of wild life. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature of the Puget Sound, yet be close to the amenities of larger cities. This could be your home-away-from home!

Centrally located for both work and play, this three bedroom Port Orchard single family home is perfect for temporary housing needs. It is about an hour from Seattle by ferry or freeway, and it’s located within two blocks of the Kitsap County Administrative Offices and Court House. The house is a fifteen minute drive or ferry ride from Bremerton. It makes a great home base while you take care of legal business, explore Puget Sound, visit family and friends, go house hunting, and/or transition to a new job.

The house is completely furnished and loaded with extras, including high speed internet, HDTV. All utilities including sewer/water, waste management are provided at no extra cost. Terms and length of occupancy are flexible.

The house has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a double size bed with a walk-in closet in the second bedroom. The third has a twin size bed plus a desk so the room can also be used as an office. Wi-Fi is provided. The beds are freshly made and towels are included for your convenience.

Grocery stores, salons, gyms, restaurants, movie and live theaters and even a 24 hour Urgent Care are located with two miles of the house so you don’t have to go far for anything you might need. McCormick Woods Golf Course, Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club, and the Gold Mountain Golf Course are all within a six mile radius.

Enjoy a meal, entertainment, or wedding reception at the McCormick Woods Clubhouse Restaurant and Bar, or drive down to the Port Orchard waterfront for dinner at the Light House or Amy’s on the Bay. Live theater at the Western Center for Fine Arts, located near the Marina is fun, as well as the local Farmer’s Market and Antique stores. Be sure to take a scenic ferry ride to Seattle for a day of shopping, Pike’s Market, and/or ride the mono-rail, to check out the view of Puget Sound from the Space Needle.

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 Puget Sound

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely property! All of the comforts of home.

I was pleasantly surprised when we came to the home late at night. I felt like I was visiting family. The house had all of the comforts of home in a great location. My kids loved the yard and the visiting deer, and I enjoyed the fact that we had space to breathe on our 3 week vacation. The owners were very accommodating and responsive to any questions. The home is within walking distance to downtown where you can eat, site see and shop. It's not a modern or new home, but very functional. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a literal "homeaway" on their upcoming vacation in the area. Thanks again!

Very nice! Would recommend to others!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! The beds were comfortable and the house had everything we needed. The landlord kept the yard looking very pretty. We especially like the smart TV in the living room where you can watch Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video among other things. We were also very happy to find such a nice place that allowed us to have our dog with us.

The house is in a great location. We enjoyed walking down the hill to town and going to the public market. Our favorite was Carter's Chocolates in the market. The foot ferry is also right at the bottom of the hill and that was very convenient.

The views from the large windows in the house are very pretty. The back yard reminds me of a rainforest. There were several times we saw a family of deer grazing in the yard.

Thank you again for sharing this beautiful home with us. It was perfect for our 3 month stay while shopping for a sailboat.

Excellent short term housing for families

  • 5 of 5

We are a military family who needed housing for about 2 months while we waited to move into our home. This place fit our needs perfectly. It is well stocked and very spacious. The owners are helpful and quick to respond. It is located on a quiet street with very little traffic, yet close to downtown and 2 miles from Walmart and other shopping. Our kids enjoyed watching the deer and other wildlife from the back deck. We would recommend this to families or anyone else needing temporary housing.

Owner's Response: If you want a scenic, fun filled day of adventure: Walk down the hill to the foot ferry and cross the inlet to Bremerton. Transfer to the WA State Ferry to Seattle. In Seattle, you can easily walk to Pike's Market, shopping outlets, or catch Rail to the Space Needle. (All without having to deal with traffic and parking) Then come back to the comforts of home.
