About the property

Home Away from Home Surrounded by Nature

Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature of the Puget Sound, yet be close to the amenities of larger cities. Make this charming Port Orchard house your home base while you take care of legal matters, visit family and friends, go house hunting, and/or transition to a new job. You’ll love it!

Centrally located for both work and play, the house is about an hour from Seattle by ferry or freeway. It's located within two blocks of the Kitsap County Administrative Offices and Court House and is a fifteen-minute drive or ferry ride from Bremerton. Well behaved children and dogs are most welcome.

The views from every room of this three bedroom 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 wildlife and is a convenient place to barbeque.

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 family style kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, dishes, flatware, toaster, coffee pot, microwave, stove, dishwasher, and a kitchen table for four with a view! The dining room table will easily accommodate six. China, candles, and stem-ware are available for special occasions. The living room is in the center of the house; it has a comfy leather sofa, recliner, and side chairs, plus an electric fireplace and HDTV.

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. Mc Cormick 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 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 monorail, to check out the view of Puget Sound from the Space Needle. Additional day trip destinations include the Olympic Rain Forest, Ocean Shores and/or Mt. Rainier or Mt St. Helen’s. The Kitsap Transit and the WA State Ferry System can take you on the scenic journey to The San Juan Islands, and British Columbia.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lorraine's place was a peaceful stay for our vacation. It's at the end of a very quiet, private dead-end street. I have trouble sleeping when away from home but slept so well there! The house was very clean, ample space for all 4 members of my family and had everything we needed. The wifi worked great - most important to my two teenage daughters. The house is located well in Port Orchard. The house is just under an hour drive from the Seatac airport, a 5 minute drive from the Port Orchard ferry landing which connects you to the Bremerton ferry on over to Seattle waterfront, very convenient. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
