About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 3/4 Bath, (Sleeps up to 5)

We own a literally over the beach cozy 1 bdrm apt. that is attached to our house, perfect for quiet getaways. Within walking distance to old Downtown Port Orchard, located between both Foot Ferries to the Bremerton ferry terminal, catch the ferry to Seattle downtown leave your car and traffic behind! We are closer to the Olympic Peninsula so you can drive to the Pacific Ocean or Forks rain forests etc. Savvy travelers have used us as a base to all of Western Washington and have said two weeks was not enough then came back the next year. We have vaulted living room ceilings with skylights, private covered deck on the water for those morning coffees or evening wine for the sunsets over the Olympic Mountains, even being in the kitchen feels like a boat!

T.D.Y.'s Welcome!

You'll be right across the bay from Bremerton's P.S.N.S., 5 minute walk to the foot ferry! You won't even need a car!

Just a couple minutes walk to the Annapolis foot ferry which runs during commute times, early morning and afternoon, then another couple minute walk to the main gate at the shipyard. Wonderful view of the ships from the deck. UPDATE FOR REPEAT CLIENTS. We have put in 2 flat screen tv's, you can plug your laptop or computer into them. We have put on a covered overhang over the back deck, and put in 3 glass panels under the railing for a better veiw of the water. Cast fishing from the beach or the deck. Do you like Calamari? Learn to jig for squid from the house or the nearby foot ferry dock. Can't get any fresher!

Great for what I needed

  • 4 of 5

I stayed for the last 2 days of my vacation while visiting my son stationed at Bremerton. It's not a huge place but big enough for myself and 2 sons. The views of the shipyard was perfect which is what I wanted. The house has all the basic necessities. It's not a Marriot or Hilton, but it worked. The owners were very accommodating. We were able to check in a little earlier to save our purchased refrigerated items. And they called us when my son forgot his boots. They really are nice guys!

Romantic Ramshackle Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A small ramshackle duplex sandwiched between the road and the tide. And we loved it. It was clean and comfortable and walkable to two ferrys and several restaurants. My favorite meal was at the Homemade Cafe. The ever changing tide slapped against the poles holding up the house and it was like sleeping on a boat. Randy was a helpful and easy going host. I would love to spend a month here.

It's perfect. That is about all I can say. My husband, daughter and myself stayed for a long weekend and thoroughly being so close to the water. Location is perfect! Will definitely be booking again. Thanks, Randy!

Shack with a pretty view

  • 1 of 5

Pros: The view! So pretty to be over the water. Easy check in/out.

Cons: This shack had a makeshift feel to it. The master bedroom had an area carpet stapled to the wall to cover a window that was directly outside our oarkibpng spot. The parking spot was inches from a busy road near a crazy turn. If we would have had another option for parking, I probably would have taken it because it was that sketchy. The floors were slanted and creaked, the furniture was somewhat clean but were due for a steam cleaning Overall it felt like our family was staying in a frat house.

I don't see what others are seeing? We usually stay in basic hotels but this was not even close. In fact I waited 7 months to complete this review because I felt I had to see what the lasting impression was after some time. The comments above clearly stood out enough to comment on them. Very disappointed.

Nice and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We rated in Mr. Jones's rental on 12/26, the day after Maria, who asked for one night in return in a note she had left shown to by the landlord. They didn't let Mr. Jones know that they left, an we wanted it for the week.

It's much nicer then a hotel. The bathroom and kitchen are small but clean and had full sized appliances.

What a view!!

It was plenty warm, and yes there is a baseboard heater in the bedroom.

I think she wanted only one night from the start and was cheating the nice landlord.

Cold and Uncomfortable

  • 1 of 5

If you are desperate only consider this rental. The cottage was freezing and heated primarily with a portable heater; we didn't run it as we were frightened about a potential issues during the night. The shower is small and extremely cold I would wish this place on anyone. Not sure what they mean about Randy being accommodating he turned the heater on when we arrived didn't have the key in the outside lock so we had to call him; only time we saw him.

Owner's Response: The key wasn't in the outside lock box because this guest showed up at 11 AM when check in is at 1:30 PM and it only took me one minute to open the door for them. I let them in 2 1/2 hours early and after she looked around she said it looked great. The bedroom is a normal electric baseboard heater (not portable) and the living room is a quartz zone heater. My current tenants laughed at this review. The sad part is the current tenants wanted the whole week. This guest skipped on the second night but didn't call or try to get a hold of me at all. Instead she left a note for me to find when I showed up for cleaning.
