Length of stay is flexible. Best of all, the rates for this fully furnished, well-equipped home are exceptionally reasonable. This beautifully-maintained neighborhood provides serenity at its finest! McCormick Woods is an ideal setting for temporary or long terms housing needs of vacationers, retirees, house hunters, families looking to relocate, as well as avid golfers. There is plenty to explore, whether you are into walking, bicycling, boating, fishing, scuba diving, golfing, tennis. volleyball, or checking out the playground with your kids. The surrounding nature preserve is truly magnificent.

Enjoy the open floor plan of the kitchen/family room with a breakfast nook, comfy seating for six, skylights, a fireplace, and HDTV. From the kitchen, you have an enchanting view the forest, and easy access to a huge deck and grassy backyard. The kitchen is equipped with quality appliances, dishes, and cookware. The laundry room with washer and dryer is just off the kitchen.

About Lorraine Heng

After teaching for thirty four years, and repairing cars, and airplanes and investing in properties for even longer, we have retired to a life of 'snow birds', creating home(s) along the west coast. Our home on the McCormick Woods Golf Course is one of our favorites. When we are not playing with the house/ yard, or working on the computer, we are exploring the North West, reading, visiting with friends and family, going for long walks through the Mc Cormick Woods neighborhood, 'workng out' at the YMCA, or driving off for another adventure in our RV.

Lorraine Heng purchased this house in 2014

Why Lorraine Heng chose Port Orchard

We love the ambience, especially the fresh air, forests, clear skies and the natural beauty of the Puget Sound area. It is a great place to take a deep breath, relax, enjoy nature, and explore the wealth of outdoor activities. Having a place to escape the hustle and bustle of major cities, yet still having easy access to Seattle and other favorites like Gig Harbor, Silverspring, Tacoma, and British Columbia has been an important consideration for us.

What makes this house unique

One chief advantage of staying here is the price: It is very inexpensive for what you get. Access to downtown Seattle or Victoria BC via the ferry and/or freeway is simple, yet pleasurable with fantastic scenery along the way. Best of all the house and surrounding neighborhood are a designers’ dream come true. To inhabitants and visitors alike, the house feels spacious, welcoming, comfortable, quiet and very peaceful.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at a property from this owner. Probably the best word to describe it would be "impeccable". When we arrived it was exactly as described, clean as a whistle, and ready for occupancy. The house is filled with great furniture and decorated like a model home. The grounds are well tended and the huge rear deck surrounded by great landscaping, wonderful for us after a week on the road from South Texas. If your travels bring you to the area you would be remiss not to stay here.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week while visiting relatives in the area for Thanksgiving. The house had everything we needed (Lorraine even provided a blender when I asked). It was great to be near walking trails and have plenty of space at the house for all of us. My husband never wanted to leave!

Comfortable & convenient!

We enjoyed a wonderful week in your McCormick Woods home. The guys loved the proximity of 3 golf courses and the girls found it easy to explore the Kitsap Peninsula. We hope to be back next year.
