Del Mar Cottage is the charming 1920's Air Conditioned 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'.
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.
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!

Why Warren Knapp (Del Mar Cottage) 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.

Clean, Charming, KING BED, Nicely Decorated,
We booked this house for a short family trip to celebrate my husbands birthday. When we arrived we were so pleased with the location and the view. The home is beautifully decorated and it has a rare find: a KING sized bed. We felt right at home and the location is close to the ferry with easy access to the city. The home is charming with tons of flowers and a beautiful view of the water all the way from the Master bedroom. The kitchen is updated, clean and well appointed. Our host was kind and his property was spotless. Thank you again for hosting us abt Del Mar Cottage!
Charming Little Cottage
What a charming little cottage. Everything we needed for a relaxing get away was provided for - even a welcoming bottle of wine! Wouldn't change a thing. Had a delightful time reading, cooking, and doing puzzles. The hot tub in the evening, provided a wonderfully relaxing bonus. Nearby Port Orchard has some quaint antique shops to browse through for those who like to treasure hunt. All in all, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to book again. Thank you Warren.
The small touches made all the difference!
From the moment my husband & I walked in we felt so very welcome! The home was perfectly lit, a note was there for us, there was clear and concise information on the table along with a delicious bottle of wine for us! Our 17 yr. old son even stated that this place was "sick" anyone who has teenagers know that this means something good! :) The beds were SO comfortable! The house was clean with lots of the comforts of staying in your own "home away from home"
The weekend was extremely relaxing and we would love to stay here again someday!
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cottage with us!
My daughter, grandson, our pup and I spent a long Thanksgiving weekend at the lovely cottage. This a a nice place to just kick back and relax. The beds were very comfy and it is nicely decorated. There is a trail out front to walk along beach and plenty of space to stretch your dogs legs. Great hot tub but beware the deck was slippery when wet. Overall great time!
Had everything we needed!
Nice getaway from our home in Seattle. Well stocked with everything we needed. Instructions for network and other amenities were easy to find and understand. The bottle of wine waiting for us was a nice touch. Warm and cozy weekend!
Charming little cottage with every amenity you could ask for. Quiet and peaceful. The hot tub and the deer in the backyard were an added bonus.
