About Andy Garrett
Originally from rural South Dakota, I've been a resident of the Puget Sound area since 1977 where I've owned and operated an industrial business for 20 years. My home is in nearby Steilacoom.
Andy Garrett purchased this House in 2006
Why Andy Garrett chose Port Orchard
I love the location of this home, with the daily cycle of foot ferry running from Port Orchard to the Bremerton terminal and the big ferry going to and from Seattle. Open the window or step outside and you'll hear the gulls and see the flocks of ducks on the water. You will often hear sea lions from across the bay and always the scent of salt water.
What makes this House unique
I enjoy bicycling and this house sits right on one of my favorite routes. Indeed, it is a popular year-round biking destination because of local waterfront and rural paved roads. The location makes the house a great hub for day trips. The local foot ferry is about a mile and a half away and it travels all day Monday through Saturday to the Bremerton ferry terminal. There's live music on weekends just a couple blocks away at the Blue Goose and good restaurants within walking distance.

No directions on how to use it! Plus very limited channel selection. The house was very clean.
This house is perfect! The location can't be beat. It is steps from a wonderful sidewalk that takes you along the bay into town. You also can get right down on the beach to look for shells in just minutes!
The house itself is a great setup! It has everything you need to make meals, do laundry, and be comfortable. I appreciated the fans, as we sleep with fans running.
We hope to return!
Andy keeps his property very clean and well stocked. My husband and I enjoyed our week here as a jump off point for day trips. We enjoyed our stay here and loved the daily sunsets.
Great house by the water, clean and comfortable!
Enjoyed our stay at Port Orchard
Easy access to A ferry into Seattle and Victoria, Canada. The place we stayed was clean and comfortable and well maintained . Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Enjoyed the location right on Puget Sound. The owner was accommodating; he allowed early entry due to our early arrival into SeaTac
Water view without the fuss
Fun property with an amazing view of the local marine traffic. Comfortable and cozy with quiet neighbors.
Exceptional area for waterfront biking. Just 40 minutes by bike to Manchester Park with stunning views all the way. The local foot ferry delivers you to the Bremerton/Seattle ferry (drive on or walk aboard), which travels to downtown Seattle just two blocks from Pike Street Market, downtown shopping, Seattle Art Museum, Benaroya Hall, theater. If you kayak or surf try Crescent Beach just a couple hours away on the Hood Canal. For stunning mountain views drive 90 minutes to Hurrican Ridge and relax at the visitor center or do an easy hike.
