About Linda Culley

I grew up in this neighborhood and on this beach. It is truly a special place. I love having guests who can enjoy the cottage and doing whatever possible to make your stay comfortable. I am recently retired from a 42 year career in Public Administration and I am looking forward to managing Sinclair Beach Cottage as my main hobby!

Linda Culley purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Linda Culley chose Port Orchard

This home has been passed down through my family and I am keeping the tradition alive. I grew up in the house next door to the cottage and my grandmother and grandfather lived in the cottage while I was growing up. Then my sister lived in the cottage for about 30 years. I purchased the property in 2014 and renovated the cottage into a vacation rental.

What makes this cottage unique

This property sits on one of the most pristine beaches in Kitsap County. It is low bank waterfront with direct access to the beach. The waterfront deck provides a 180 degree view of Sinclair Inlet, looking towards Port Orchard, Bremerton, Manette, Agate Pass, Bainbridge Island and Rich Passage. The ferries pass every 30 minutes. The beach is great for exploring for sea glass and sea shells and exploring sea life at low tide. There is a large lawn area, great for Croquet or Yard Darts (both provided). The water is great for kayaking and canoeing. (Please bring your own).

Beautiful Serene Cottage on the Water

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how great it was to stay at this cottage. Very romantic and quiet, just what we needed. The house itself has been well-stocked and Linda has gone out of her way to make sure everything is in order. And the pictures are real. You can walk out the French doors to a deck and the water is right there. The ferries go by occasionally with the snow-capped mountains in the background which really drives home the Pacific Northwest experience. We've already booked a return trip for November.

Unsurpassed view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Sinclair Beach Cottage in Port Orchard this week and had a delightful experience! The cottage is comfortable and the best equipped rental property we've ever stayed in. If there's something you need, from condiments to household supplies, Linda has furnished it. We found her notes left here and there to be most helpful. But the very BEST part of this little getaway is THE VIEW.....steps from the beach, one can spend all day drinking in the majesty of the Olympic Mountains and by night, the twinkling Bremerton city lights, all while enjoying ferry traffic in a most romantic way. We beachcombed for sea glass and came home with a bucket full. We returned feeling most refreshed and with a memory that will continue to provide warm fuzzies for years to come.

Quaint cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

If you look up 'quaint' in the dictionary, you will find a picture of this cottage. We had an awesome stay here at the Sinclair Beach Cottage. This property is very well stocked; just bring your consumables. It is in a fantastic location out of the hub-bub of Seattle, with a fantastic view of the Sinclair Inlet of Elliott Bay. Close to Port Orchard and not too far from Bainbridge. You will not regret the serenity of this property! We will be back, for sure!!
