Port Orchard house description

Locally Managed by Del Mar Vacation.

See US Open 2015 rates below.

The Cottage:
Del Mar Cottage is the charming 1920's little cottage by the sea you've been dreaming about. The character of this cottage, from traditional architectural details like crystal door knobs and elegant crown molding with beautiful easy open windows to let the cool sea breeze in, make this get a way a 'must stay'.

The Garden:
Relax on the garden's porch swing while reading and sipping your favorite lemonaid. Later enjoy some stargazing from your luxurious outdoor spa while planning the next day's ferry ride, antiquing or golf game.

The Neighborhood:
Just 15 minutes north of Gig harbor is Del Mar Cottage's tiny neighborhood of South Colby, nestled between Port Orchard, just 5 minutes to the West, or the Southworth ferry dock to Seattle, just 4 minutes the East. This charming cottage seems to have guarded the bay for many, many decades. Make Del Mar Cottage part of your next get away. You'll want to come back every year!

Walks & Dog Lovers: There are several wonderful walks to take your dog on for an adventure. Del Mar Cottage is one house back from the beach, but there is a quiet, single lane frontage road that is directly on the beach, great for walks and viewing all that the beach has to offer. The frontage road (SE Cornell) is just west of the Del Mar Cottage gate.

Then, just 1/8 of a mile east from the cottage is Harper Pier, overlooking Puget Sound. Continue your walk another 1/8 of a mile to the park just past SE Scatterwood Lane; great for letting the dog run in the fenced little league base ball area.

Across from the park is a natural boat and kayak launch, great for letting the dog play in the water!

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We were lucky enough to find Del Mar Cottage years ago. The home has been beautifully maintained since the 1920’s and we thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to share its beauty with travelers worldwide.

                  Why the Owner Chose Port Orchard:
                  We have enjoyed this location because of the water views and the short 40-minute trip into Seattle via the nearby Southworth Ferry.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Listening to the waves against the shore in the evening, and waking up to the sounds of the morning brings a peaceful start to your day at Del Mar Cottage. Save some time for beach combing or strolling to nearby Harper’s Pier.
