Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Puget Sound Escape. 5 comfortable bedrooms for us to spread out - plus 2 separate living spaces. The kitchen is very well stocked with the most breathtaking view of the sound and Seattle. The little town of Manchester is very quaint but with close access to all of the amenities of Port Orchard. I highly recommend this property and the property owner, Jaida, was very responsive and helpful!

Spacious and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Just a few days before my wedding, the rental I'd lined up for my East coast family (my two parents, aunt, and cousin) decided to cancel without warning. After a frantic 24 hour search for replacement lodging, I found Puget Sound Escape and Jaida...both were a lovely breath of fresh air! Jaida was extremely friendly, accommodating, and communicative throughout their stay. The huge deck has a wonderful view of Seattle across Puget Sound and Elliot Bay, and the house itself is tucked away on a quiet street but still very accessible by ferry and car. In fact, being carless (I'd loaned it to my folks), I was able to take the Fauntleroy Ferry over after work and get on a Kitsap County bus that dropped me off within easy walking distance of the house. My family also made the quick drive up to Bremerton to take that ferry to downtown Seattle...all very convenient.

The house is clean and big, with two different living rooms, both equipped with TVs (good for when people had different Netflix-ing inclinations). The beds were all very comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with cooking equipment. The yard below the deck was also great...fully fenced if you're bringing a pup!

One of my favorite parts was the nearby town and boat launch/floating docks in Manchester...we own a boat, and were able to take my family out crabbing and drop them off at the docks at the end of the day, making their trip home with the fresh crab quick and easy (and charming).

Highly recommend Jaida and her lovely home away from home!

Dream home with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My family came in from Minnesota and we didn't have room at my place and we found this nice place with excellent accommodations. The views were excellent and the place was very roomy and five star. I would recommend it to all with larger groups.
