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 Puget Sound North

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

My two sisters, niece & nephew arrived yesterday & I arrived tonight. It's wonderful Lorraine! We all love it. You've done a great job with this charming home!

Nice place to spend a few days in!

The property was nicely located on a quiet street but near everything. I especially appreciated the ease of entry for my elderly parents who were traveling with us.

Lovely property! All of the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised when we came to the home late at night. I felt like I was visiting family. The house had all of the comforts of home in a great location. My kids loved the yard and the visiting deer, and I enjoyed the fact that we had space to breathe on our 3 week vacation. The owners were very accommodating and responsive to any questions. The home is within walking distance to downtown where you can eat, site see and shop. It's not a modern or new home, but very functional. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a literal "homeaway" on their upcoming vacation in the area. Thanks again!
