About Andy Garrett
Originally from rural South Dakota, I've been a resident of the Puget Sound area since 1977 where I've owned and operated an industrial business for 20 years. My home is in nearby Steilacoom.
Andy Garrett purchased this House in 2006
Why Andy Garrett chose Port Orchard
I love the location of this home, with the daily cycle of foot ferry running from Port Orchard to the Bremerton terminal and the big ferry going to and from Seattle. Open the window or step outside and you'll hear the gulls and see the flocks of ducks on the water. You will often hear sea lions from across the bay and always the scent of salt water.
What makes this House unique
I enjoy bicycling and this house sits right on one of my favorite routes. Indeed, it is a popular year-round biking destination because of local waterfront and rural paved roads. The location makes the house a great hub for day trips. The local foot ferry is about a mile and a half away and it travels all day Monday through Saturday to the Bremerton ferry terminal. There's live music on weekends just a couple blocks away at the Blue Goose and good restaurants within walking distance.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house provided an oasis far from home for my family. The view was both breathtaking and fascinating. Andy was a helpful and prompt.
Lovely house with a wonderful view.
The house met all of the needs for our trip. It was clean and functional with ample room. A wonderful alternative to a local hotel.
Wonderful night view
Very well equipped kitchen, spacious rooms, plenty of space to hang out with family or friends. View is great in the daytime, too!
Clean house with great views and easy access to hiking & ferries
Very clean with a beautiful view of Bremerton. Communication with the owner was easy and quick. Easy access to the foot ferry across and over to Seattle. We brought our kids and explored the Kitsap peninsula and spent a day in Seattle. Port Orchard's hobbit home at the Brothers Nursery was a delightful surprise. It was perfect for a quick getaway with kids!
Great, charming home
Thank you so much for a great stay! We were in town for a wedding and stayed with another couple and our 1.5 year old at this house and it was perfect! It was bigger and nicer than it appeared in pictures and had everything we needed. We were very pleased with out stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting this area.
Older home with a fantastic view.
I spent hours just watching boats, birds, cars, and the goings on at the Navy yard across the inlet.
Exceptional area for waterfront biking. Just 40 minutes by bike to Manchester Park with stunning views all the way. The local foot ferry delivers you to the Bremerton/Seattle ferry (drive on or walk aboard), which travels to downtown Seattle just two blocks from Pike Street Market, downtown shopping, Seattle Art Museum, Benaroya Hall, theater. If you kayak or surf try Crescent Beach just a couple hours away on the Hood Canal. For stunning mountain views drive 90 minutes to Hurrican Ridge and relax at the visitor center or do an easy hike.
