Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Port Orchard - Bay Street Vacation Rental

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-6)

We own a literally over the beach cozy 1 bdrm apt. that is attached to our house, perfect for quiet getaways. Within walking distance to old Downtown Port Orchard, located between both Foot Ferries to the Bremerton ferry terminal, catch the ferry to Seattle downtown leave your car and traffic behind! We are closer to the Olympic Peninsula so you can drive to the Pacific Ocean or Forks rain forests etc. Savvy travelers have used us as a base to all of Western Washington and have said two weeks was not enough then came back the next year. We have vaulted living room ceilings with skylights, private covered deck on the water for those morning coffees or evening wine for the sunsets over the Olympic Mountains, even being in the kitchen feels like a boat!

T.D.Y.'s Welcome!

You'll be right across the bay from Bremerton's P.S.N.S., 5 minute walk to the foot ferry! You won't even need a car!

Just a couple minutes walk to the Annapolis foot ferry which runs during commute times, early morning and afternoon, then another couple minute walk to the main gate at the shipyard. Wonderful view of the ships from the deck. UPDATE FOR REPEAT CLIENTS. We have put in 2 flat screen tv's, you can plug your laptop or computer into them. We have put on a covered overhang over the back deck, and put in 3 glass panels under the railing for a better veiw of the water. Cast fishing from the beach or the deck. Do you like Calamari? Learn to jig for squid from the house or the nearby foot ferry dock. Can't get any fresher!

This vacation rental is not a Holiday Inn, it is so much better! You will find that Randy and Frank have thought of everything and are very accommodating. The house is located on the water with the best view especially at sunset. Because it is centrally located, we were easily able to explore and enjoy the Seattle area and it's many attractions. I would highly recommend this rental as it far exceeded our expectations.

Just wanted everyone to know this place is a jem. The house is cozy the view is I can't even put into words it is AMAZING!! ! The owners are wonderful and very accomadating. Its been over a year since we have been back.and Iam planning a trip back very soon. We have stayed there twice and wouldn't even consider staying any where else I would replan my whole itenary just so I would be able to stay there. It is one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed . You would have to be crazy to not want to rent this place. Dig for clams, private beach, all kinds of really cool wild life, fishing, close to shops and bars. Thank you Randy for sharing your house and letting us tay in one of the most coolest places I have ever seen. Oh I almost forgot you can hear the ocean under the house when the tide is in how cool is that!!!!!

Loved the birds

  • 4 of 5

Randy must have ordered the perfect perfect weather for us for our stay in his little cottage over the water. Relaxing on the deck looking at the water and the boats was so enjoyable. The close proximity to all the activities was great also plus the big screen televisions. Randy was really helpful even suggesting a place to eat vegetarian. 1 recommendation put another mirror in the bedroom next to the TV because it's too hard for two women to get ready at the same time with one mirror. Teehee

Port Orchard Waterfront

  • 4 of 5

Randy was attentive, but gave us our privacy. The key was in a lock box and made check in/out easy. Comfortable beds and cozy living room. Nice to be able to cook our own meals and a barbeque grill outside if needed. We had our own with us and cooked outside one night. Wonderful to hear the water at high tide lapping underneath us as we drifted off to sleep. I like that we could lock our bikes up on the entryway decking safely. Clean, cozy and comfortable.

AN awsome place to kick back and relax.

  • 5 of 5

This place has its own personality, the guys were great hosts, it was clean and comfortable. Despite the weather in February, we woke up to the sound of the water under the house at high tide, a great view of the Cascades and just the peacefulness of being on the water. We had our wedding ceremony there and it was beautiful. This is a place to come back to over and over. Next time it will be in the warmer weather so we can go fishing and crabbing.

Port Orchard is a great little town with a lot of potential but they want to knock down several homes on the waterfront to put a bike path. This home being one of them. It would be a great loss if this were to occur for all the homeowners involved.

This is an awesome vacation getaway.
