About Linda Culley

I grew up in this neighborhood and on this beach. It is truly a special place. I love having guests who can enjoy the cottage and doing whatever possible to make your stay comfortable. I am recently retired from a 42 year career in Public Administration and I am looking forward to managing Sinclair Beach Cottage as my main hobby!

Linda Culley purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Linda Culley chose Puget Sound

This home has been passed down through my family and I am keeping the tradition alive. I grew up in the house next door to the cottage and my grandmother and grandfather lived in the cottage while I was growing up. Then my sister lived in the cottage for about 30 years. I purchased the property in 2014 and renovated the cottage into a vacation rental.

What makes this cottage unique

This property sits on one of the most pristine beaches in Kitsap County. It is low bank waterfront with direct access to the beach. The waterfront deck provides a 180 degree view of Sinclair Inlet, looking towards Port Orchard, Bremerton, Manette, Agate Pass, Bainbridge Island and Rich Passage. The ferries pass every 30 minutes. The beach is great for exploring for sea glass and sea shells and exploring sea life at low tide. There is a large lawn area, great for Croquet or Yard Darts (both provided). The water is great for kayaking and canoeing. (Please bring your own).

Exceeded our expectations in every sense. Lovely, warm, cozy home - exactly as described (maybe even better). Communication was clear and easy. Saw a bald eagle and lots of other wildlife. Highly recommended. One tip if you are local and planning to cook a bunch: bring your own sharp knife (I'm just used to my own knives, perhaps; many knives are provided here, though).

My husband and I stayed at The Sinclair Cottage for 4 nights it was fabulous. We loved it ...It was clean ,cozy and the view was amazing .We actually saw 4 deer a little way down the road and a US Naval aircraft carrier on the Puget Sound,....

Linda had the cottage all decorated with Christmas decorations and a beautiful Christmas tree down with a seashell theme ..

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay we will definitely be back here,....

Thank you Linda

Omgee..we loved this cottage. The view is breath taking. The beach has more see shells and sea glass than i have ever seen even in the actual ocean. We were there 3 days and next time it will be 7 or more. Want to move to port orchard now and working on plans to do so. Thank you Linda and thank you Home Away!

The cottage was quant and serene, just what we wanted! The beach was beautiful with all the sand, rocks, shells, and sea glass. The bed was comfortable and the neighbors were quiet. All but food and personal items were provided for. Clean and beautiful!

Beautiful views!

Beautiful location! The cottage is very comfortable and well stocked. The driveway can be a little tricky to find especially in the dark and rain. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit!
