Why Jennifer Bennett chose Bremerton
This property is truly one of a kind, with all the amenities and access to Puget Sound, yet walking distance from everything. This is one of the marquee homes in the area with stunning Puget Sound views out every window.
What makes this House unique
Lay in the pool on an air mattress while boats float by, there's nothing more relaxing. Enjoy the sea lions as they swim by, along with all the sea birds, fishing for their dinner.

Not a single complaint. The pictures are true. Possibly the best house rental ever. Jennifer is a fantastic host and provides so many extra touches. Wish I didn't live across the country because this would be a yearly rental for us!
The property is absolutely amazing! We loved staying here, its perfect for us!
This was our second straight year staying at this property while in Seattle for our annual golf trip and we will be staying there every year!
The location is central to everything. All the features the house has to offer inside and out, just can't be beat! Pool, spa, fire pit, BBQ area, multiple patios right on the water, the perfect place to just hang out! I even messed up on my reservation dates between the house and our flights, and Jennifer generously accommodated the dates! Sorry again Jennifer and Thank you!
Great place to just hangout
Property is based in Bremerton, in a quant little throw-back community about 1 hour (slow ferry) or 30 minutes (fast ferry) away from downtown Seattle. The house is a charming 1930's vintage home that is well maintained and well stocked with everything you will need. Bedrooms and common rooms are small but comfortable. The real asset of this property is the outdoor living space. The pool, hot tub, fire pit, gas grill and multiple outdoor dining and sitting areas near the pool and in the backyard make this a great place just to hang out. Our four children were in the pool and hot tub everyday. We spent a few days just hanging out here rather than going anywhere else. The house is right on the edge of the water with access for canoeing and fishing (canoes and rod & reels are provided by the owner). The owners were very responsive to any request we had (and we did not have many because everything was so well maintained).
The ferries to Seattle are only a 15 minute (.9 mile) walk away from the house. The fast ferries are really commuter ferries during rush hours with limited seating and times so be sure to buy these in advance of your trip if you plan to take them. The slower ferries have many more crossings and do not require advanced purchases.
Coffee shops and bakeries are just a few minute walk from the house.
My family of 3 daughters, 2 grandchildren, sister, brother-in-law and myself just returned from an absolutely wonderful week at this beautiful property. From the moment of contact with Jennifer, her kindness and compassion so very clear, I knew her home would be the perfect spot for us.
This historic home and its charming characteristics is beautifully decorated and up-to-date. The comfy beds, top of the line bedding, furniture, TV's, Sonos sound system, high end appliances and abundance of towels was truly wonderful.
The grounds are beautiful with gorgeous hydrangeas, calla lilies, manicured green grass, shrubs and trees. The California kitchen with fridge and Weber BBQ was thoroughly enjoyed for our "at home" family dinners, one of them being Alaskan King Crab and Steak, all picked up, from Pike Marketplace.
The hot tub and saltwater pool with slide and waterfalls was thoroughly enjoyed by all especially my 6 and 4 year old grandchildren. The 7 different seating areas including fire pit table for evening, gave everyone an option to enjoy whatever their heart desired.
We did do a couple of trips to Seattle by ferry (50 min ride) the terminal is 5 min from property . We also did a tour of the navy ship that is seen from the backyard, visited the beautiful wharf area, lots of nice eateries there, drove up to Silverdale (20 min) for shopping (Kitsap mall). Since we had been to Seattle a few years ago we didn't need to visit all the tourist spots and were able to enjoy the Bremerton area.
We took this trip to have my husband's ashes made into glass memorials at Artful Ashes and being able to stay in this beautiful Oasis has helped with mending our hearts and souls.
Thank you Jen and Mac for sharing your amazing home with us!
Truly an Urban Oasis
From the phone calls with Jennifer to when we stepped foot into her Urban Oasis, our entire family vacation was beyond words. This place was absolutely top notch in my book. I'm a very particular person when it comes to staying in other people's homes. I only expect better than I have at home, and this place had it. The minute we walked through the gate to enter the property, we felt like we walked into paradise. The grounds that surround this over 70 year old property are incredible. Colorful pot's everywhere filled with exotic plant's, huge Hydrangeas in white, purple and pink, and a perfectly manicured lawn. The cleanliness of this home was impeccable. The bed linens, the bath towels, the kitchen set up, the furniture inside and outside, and all the amenities that went along with this rental are nothing I've ever seen before. Not that having a pool, a hot tub, and a slide, all made of huge rock boulders wasn't enough....she also furnished a fishing boat for two, Kayaks, and a gorgeous fire pit to enjoy the 4th of July fireworks that they displayed off of Minnete Bridge. What a fabulous show that was!! This was the first time they had this show off this 5 year old bridge, and OMG, did we hit the jackpot for the 4th of July entertainment!! And to be shoreline along the beautiful Puget Sound!! Incredible!! Also, the Ferry rides were so much fun for my son, his wife and our two grandchildren. All the Ferry's were incredibly clean, like brand new, and so close to Jennifer's Urban Oasis.
I could go on and on about this home, and everything that went along with it. This was by far the best family vacation any parent could dream of. My husband, son, daughter in law, two grandchildren and myself agree that this Urban Oasis is all, plus more, the most wonderful place to stay when in Washington, (I'd say it's off the charts to compare to any other VRBO rental in the state of Washington).
Thank you Jennifer, for allowing our family to stay at your beautiful, wonderful home. This will be a memory that none of us will ever forget.
stunning view and beautiful home
We stayed for a week at the end of August...it felt like we were in California or Hawaii, it was the perfect getaway. The home was clean and well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. The pool was the star for us, it made the cloudy days fun and having the view made it perfect. The owners were great, absolutely no complaints! We would stay here again and again if we could afford to, it was worth every penny!
Warm and sunny Western facing home, perfect for lounging by the pool all afternoon. A short walking distance from local bars, breweries, restaurants, art galleries and a naval museum aboard the USS Turner Joy. The Seattle/Bremerton ferry is a one mile walk and after a 50 minute scenic ferry ride, you will be in the heart of downtown Seattle and all the Emerald City has to offer. 45 minute drive to Chamber's Bay Golf Course, the home of the 2015 US Open.
